Granado Espada – Newbie Guide

Posted on June 27, 2007. Filed under: Granado Espada | Tags: |

“Granado Espada” is Spanish for “distinguished sword”, although the grammar is improper, as in Spanish the noun comes before the adjective, so the name of the game should be “Espada Granado.”

Granado Espada distinguishes itself from many modern-day MMORPGs with its Multiple Character Control (MCC) system. Rather than playing one character at a time, or using two clients to do so, a player may control a party of up to three characters in a single gaming session. This party play aspect of the game gives Granado Espada more of the feel of traditional, non-networked console and PC RPGs. The character order may be set within the Quarters at the beginning of the game and any member of the party can be selected to lead the other characters or act alone at any time throughout the game. The other two characters can be commanded to follow or attend the lead character as the party moves through a given area.

There are various modes by which the party AI will automate the other two characters, among them an assault or attack mode, in which the scout or healer (if any) will automatically heal all members upon fighting mobs, and a defense mode for areas with a lighter concentration of mobs. The player is responsible primarily for controlling the lead character, while the other two characters act and react according to the mode manually set by the player.

Areas and Quests

The dungeons in Granado Espada are interspersed between towns and generally composed of three levels with successively more difficult mobs. In order to travel to a new town a player must often complete a series of quests that involve gathering items from a given dungeon level, or reaching the end of the dungeon. On the way the player will encounter a number of Waypoints or saved locations that may be teleported to for a fee and save him much of the journey back and forth. Each dungeon’s final level terminates in a Mission Room, or a room in which a boss mob may be challenged by teams of players. Missions are instances, wherein players get their own “instance” or “room” of a specific map just for themselves, a technology developed by Richard Garriott and popularized by Guild Wars and to some extent World of Warcraft.

Quests are an integral part of Granado Espada, so much so that the player can only control a second and third character after completing a series of quests. Various NPCs throughout the towns and in some dungeon locations may be spoken with to initiate quests.

Once Knight status is granted via a quest, the player may unlock and access another difficulty level for dungeons he has already passed. Quest rewards range from “Vis” (the game’s currency) to Family Points (also known as Ladder Points, used to expand the Barracks and create characters) and NPC Cards.

Dueling and Team PvP

Granado Espada has a Dueling System by which a player may issue a challenge to another player’s team and duel them in an arena removed from the actual game. Family Points may be earned or lost in a duel.

Characters

Unlike most games, which prohibit the trading of characters, Granado Espada allows the trading of RNPC characters between different players, though once a character is created in the barracks, trading of that character is forbidden.

Classes

The player starts out with the ability to create either of five starter classes: Fighter, Wizard, Scout, Musketeer and Warlock (Elementalist in newer versions of the game outside Japan and its native Korea).

Fighter – The general melee class for Granado Espada, the Fighter has the most Stances of any class and can use the widest array of weapons. Often used by players as their default tank.

Wizard – A magic-using class with a wide array of skills, including teleportation magic and levitation magic as well as offensive magic, with area of effect (AOE) attacks at higher levels. The wizard also has an ESP stance that allows the user to strengthen the party.

Musketeer – A class that relies on rifles, muskets and pistols. Slow running speed and tremendous damage to single targets as well as limited AOE attacks.

Scout – A healer class that can also buff other members of the party and resurrect dead characters with potions.

Elementalist – An extremely powerful but slow-moving nuking class that specialises mainly in AOE attacks.

NPC Classes – There are a variety of NPCs obtainable throughout the game that utilise all kinds of weaponry, including siege cannon and shotguns, or a combination of the abilities of the above basic classes. Though, certain skills of an NPC character can’t be used by a character that the player has created.

Music

Granado Espada mainly consists of trance and classical music. Much of the tracks in the game were composed by SoundTeMP, S.F.A, and a number were contributed by DJ Tiesto and related production outfits. Osamu Kubota also lends a hand with a few tracks of his own.
