Someone made a post asking about how scrolls worked in the game. I responded to them with this info, but I added a bit more here and it would probably be a good idea to put this stuff in the guides section in case anyone else was curious.
Scrolls are used to upgrade the base damage of your weapons and armor. There are specific scrolls for both weapons and armor that can be bought in the Enchanted Forest. You have 7 attempts to upgrade each weapon or armor. Whether an upgrade is successful or not, the scroll is destroyed on use and the remaining attempts available are lowered.
Scrolls are obtained in 2 ways, either by lucky drops or from the shop in the Enchanted Forest. As far as I know, all monsters can drop scrolls. (Baby Shrooms and Mushrooms might not, since I don’t remember specifically getting a scroll drop from them) Spiders can only drop 70% and 10% scrolls, making the Enchanted Forest the place to go for scroll farming.
The difference between 100%, 70%, and 10% is how much they upgrade your weapons.
100% scrolls will add on from 5.00% to 7.69% of your weapon’s base damage.
70% scrolls will add on from 8.62% to 11.54% of your weapon’s base damage.
10% scrolls will add on from 20.45% to 25.00% of your weapon’s base damage and add 1 STR to the weapon.
Here is a spreadsheet of all of the weapons, and how scrolls effect them.
- The most effective way to use scrolls is really up to how long you want to spend trying to get a good weapon.
- If you don’t really care, use 7 70% scrolls until you get a weapon that is at least 5-7 successes
- If you want a good weapon, use 10% scrolls on a weapon until one succeeds on its first try. Then use 6 70% scrolls to hopefully get 5-6 more successes.
- If you are literally insane go for 2 10% scrolls in a row on your weapon, then 5 70% scrolls hoping for 4-5 more successes, but the odds of getting that are very low.
If anyone can figure out the base rates (taking rounding into consideration), please let me know!
Also, if a developer sees this, it would be awesome if we could get these numbers.
