Etrian Odyssey Pro tip
Just a little update on my experience with Etrian odyssey, as I’ve found out something that’ll really speed up the game for anyone out there getting tired of the dungeon crawling.
Monsters in Etrian Oddysey don’t drop money, so you’re forced to earn money by selling off the items they drop. While there’s a good balance with earning levels and earning money at the beginning, you’ll start to notice that it takes longer and longer to earn enough money to properly equip your characters as time goes on.
My solution? A lumberjack character.
Once you’ve levelled up to a certain extent, leave out a relatively weak character, say a medic, and register a new Survivalist. I tried naming this survivalist “lumberjack” but it wouldn’t fit so I settled for “chopper”. Now chopper only does one thing good, and that’s chop wood. So you take that bitch into the forest and just keep chopping wood over and over until you get enough money to buy your peeps the proper items. If you already have a survivalist on your group with some chopping skills like I do, it’ll make things even better, as you’ll be chopping wood 14 times a day. Believe me, it makes things a LOT faster, and anything to speed up this game is definitely a plus.
