Megami Quest

DoraShinmage's Megami Quest is a Cookie Clicker-esque webtoy with a JRPG twist. Able to run by itself in another tab or window, the game centers around creating a party of characters that slowly get stronger as they generate EXP by the second and level up. Each character has a strength rating relative to its level, and each area you visit requires a certain strength rating to complete, which in turn opens up new areas to conquer. Initially, you won't be able to do much, and the heroes you can pay to summon will be less than inspiring, but as you visit new areas, you'll unlock more powerful summoning spells, items, and even be able to upgrade your existing roster.

Simple? You bet. Megami Quest is a considerably more passive experience than other "idle" games, with a focus primarily on discovering all the possible items and party members, which is mostly a random affair. The biggest challenge will be "grinding" for high strength ratings, since some stages limit the number of heroes you can take (forcing you to "rest" the others) while still demanding a high strength rating to conquer. Most of the locations and character names (apart from our titular "goddess") appear to be taken from Norse mythology, and it feels like Megami Quest has a lot of potential to beef up its content with a story of some sort behind it. Still, it's cute and an interesting spin on the increasingly popular "idle" webtoy genre, and if you need something to run in another tab, you could do far worse than a growing cavalcade of legendary heroes.

Great little game. I guess I'll begin the discussion on party member unlocks.

Level 1 has a chance to summon: Askr*, Embala*, Norn**, Saga**, and Sigurd***.

Level 2 has a chance to summon: Fylgja***, Dis***, Heimdall***, Nanna****, Eir****, and Balder*****.

That's as far as I've gotten.

I can't figure out the tradeoff between summoning more members or not. Any hints?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

The problem you're going to run into is that you need high level members to enter certain areas, because they limit how many people you can bring. Since your XP is split among all active members, having more causes each to level slower. Some areas allow you to bring everybody, though, so having a lot of members can help.

My goal has been to simply have one of each person. This is not an optimal strategy, though: the higher star members are far, far better than the lower star ones, and so having multiple 5-stars will get you more power.

But I gotta catch em' all, right?

To take the party member info a little further:

c = common, r = rare, u = ultra rare
Level 1: Askr*(c), Embla**(c), Norn**(c), Saga**(c), Sigurd***(r)

Level 2: Fylgja***(c), Dis***(c), Heimdall***(c), Nanna****(c), Eir****(r), Loki*****(u), Balder*****(u)

Level 3: Valkyrie*****(c), Einherjar*****(c), ?, ?, Tor*****(u)

Generally speaking, you always want to just focus on levelling the rarest members at each level you have access to, and Resting out everyone else when possible. Sigurd (level 1 rare) is better than the level 2 commons. And at level 2, Balder is substantially better than everyone else, so really just go for duping him if you can. At level 3, Balder is still better than everyone I have gotten other than Tor, who is a monster.

I fixed some rarity errors on the list and added some more characters:

c = common, r = rare, s = super rare u = ultra rare
Level 1: Askr*(c), Embla**(c), Norn**(c), Saga**(c), Sigurd***(r)

Level 2: Fylgja***(c), Dis***(c), Heimdall***(c), Nanna****(c), Eir****(r), Loki*****(s), Balder*****(s)

Level 3: Valkyrie*****(c), Einherjar*****(c), Frey*****(r), ?, Tor*****(u), Frigg*****(u)

>=Level 3: ?, ?
(I don't know if the last two can be found as Level 3 heroes, or if there is a higher summoning level that can get them.)

I managed to (FINALLY!) get a missing lvl 2 summon:

(Super Rare)Loki*****

As for items, I am currently finished with Elivagar River, and I have the following

Ale: It becomes somewhat pleasant (found at town - no use)
Herb: Gives +10 exp to all party members (found at Plain and River)
Silver: Sells for 200g (found in mines and caves)
Gold: Sells for 3000g (special complete item)
Kvasir's Blood: Changes Ale into Honey Wine (all Ales! Found at Castle)
Honey Wine: Gives +200 exp to all party members (must be made)
Yggdrasil Seed: Gives +100 exp to all party members (found at Rivers and Ravines)
(unknown)
Laevateinn: It increases Giving EXP 300 times for 10 seconds (special complete item)
(unknown) x 4

Items:

After Honey Wine, I have a Golden Apple, which doubles your current amount of Gold. I think I got it after beating Castle Utgard.

The item after Yggdrasil Seed is Sleipner's Bridle, which gives a boost to your search bar when you use it in an unbeaten area. I think I got after beating Gnipahellir Cave.

You'll find the King's Manuscripts randomly in Elivagar River. It opens up a new area, Hvergelmir Spring, which only one character can enter, requiring 50,000 strength.

I've been playing a lot today... I'm only missing the final slot for characters and a couple items.


Level 1 Summon Characters: Askr, Embla, Norn, Saga, Sigurd, Fylgja
Level 2 Summon Characters: Dis, Heimdall, Nanna, Eir, Loki, Balder, Valkyrie
Level 3 Summon Characters: Einherjar, Frey, Freja, Tor, Frigg, Woden, ??

A couple updates:

Laevateinn is not a special complete item - it drops occasionally in a couple places, and seems to drop quite a bit in the Gate of Hell.

While Fylgja is on the first line, she is a level 2 summon. I assume the same of Valkyrie (on line 2, but level 3) but I haven't gotten her yet.

And two questions:

Has anyone managed to complete Hvergelmir Spring? The completion bar doesn't even seem to be moving for me.

Has anyone found out the last three items?

Once you have an inventory, spend some time in the Edge of Town until you've picked up a few Ales. Then, move on over to Hnitbjorg and wait for Kvasir's Blood, then use it.

Just export the save text and keep importing it until you get the charcater you want. :p

For anyone interested in ruining everything by cheating:

If you know how to get to the script console thing and enter commands, I figured out these commands:

game.gold = # : Sets your current gold to "#". Just entering in "game.gold" will show how much gold you currently have.

add_item("NAME") : Adds the named item to your inventory. Can exceed max inventory size with this. The names are not the strings you see as the item's name, but a four-letter abbreviation, for example the Golden Apple is "appl". Do include the "" around the item name, or it won't work.

item_type : Just entering this in will return an array of all the types of items, including their names. Useful for knowing what to type into add_item.

add_member("TYPE") : Works similarly to add_item, adding the chosen member to your party, but the member names are simply type00 - type20 in exactly the order they appear on the found list screen (so type00 is Megami, for example). Creating a party member this way does add it to the found list, but you won't see the summon animation that happens when you buy a new member normally.

If you don't know how to get to the console, hopefully the explanation from the cookie clicker wiki, of all things, might help you: http://cookieclicker.wikia.com/wiki/Cheating

I use inspect element to get there on firefox. Not sure exactly whether firefox itself or some add-on gave me the context menu item "inspect element", though.

    Actually it's not just Embla. After beating the gmae I just tried out some cheats and gave me many Laevateinn at once. The classes get reversed. The 1 star characters become the strongest then it's the 2 stars etc, and the 5 stars characters become the weakest.

    It's most likely because the low star characters could level up more often.
