Brown Dust Guide & Tips

Character Classes

The mercenaries in the game are classified into the following four categories.

  1. Warrior – Warriors are attacking characters and they focus on taking down a single enemy At a time. They are very helpful in cutting through the defense lines of opponents and in eliminating the dangerous mercenaries.
  2. Defender – This class has skills which allow them to resist incoming attacks and protect their allies. Defenders are abundant in HP and DEF Stats.
  3. Magician – When in need of taking down multiple enemies, Magicians are the best bet. Their attacks usually involve the Area of Effect, which deals damage to groups of mercenaries. They can also cast Debuffs as well. However, their skills need time to recharge and hence they might skip certain turns.
  4. Supporters – These characters are there to help out others by casting buffs. They do no attack.

Character Stats

  1. ATK – States the amount of damage that a unit can deal with.
  2. Support – Higher support stat means better support skill characteristics.
  3. HP – Deals with the health of characters.
  4. Crit Rate – The chance of hitting Critical strike.
  5. Crit DMG – The amount of damage inflicted through Critical attacks.
  6. DEF – Def stat is a defensive stat and as this stat level increases the resistance to incoming damage decreases.
  7. AGI – Deals with the unit’s chance of being grazed by opponent attacks. Grazed attacks inflict 35% less damage, and cast debuffs for half of their duration.

Attack Order

Attack order is an integral concept in the game which you must learn to succeed. This basically deals with the order in which your troops attack. Depending on your strategy and situations you might want to reshuffle the attacking order. You can change the order by tapping the attack order option in the battle preparation screen and resetting the order. Usually, attackers are given the first go but sometimes it would be good to let the defenders attack first owing to their skills.

Team Formation Guide

While there are no general rules regarding the formation, it is best to keep the defenders in front protect the other classes from damage. This gives Warriors space and time to plan their attacks. Magicians can also use their skills accordingly. Also, supporters can give AOE buffs which might prove very useful. Another cool feature is the set effects which can be used once you have the right combination of units. Once you obtained the best possible team formation, you can save it for future use.
