The translations are done by me, and for the flavor text of each card I’m just using the in-game Encyclopedia entries because they are close enough. I may go back in the future and change those up, however. The page also includes some rudimentary rules and information up top, but there will be a much more fleshed out Rulebook page in the future.
Stay tuned, as in the future I’ll get sections for the rest of the cards added along with those rules!
Special thanks to Deques, for working hard on getting the CSS for the translation info set up how I wanted and putting up with my tiny nitpicks!
Now you can find a written guide to tempering weapons and altering armor right here on Seikens!
Marcus Majarra graciously gave us permission to host his guide on our site. I’ve updated the formatting a bit here and there, and you can head on over to the Tempering for Dummies page to learn everything you need to know about the process!
Hey, what do you mean this isn’t really “new”? Yeah, I know it’s a 20 year old guide, but it’s new to Seikens isn’t it? The information is still very in-depth and the best out there!
Well ok, if you must know, Marcus Majarra is working on an updated version of the guide, and we’ll be hosting it here in the future! Stick around for updates!
Was the lesson Watts gave you about forging, tempering, and altering your gear not enough for you? Still don’t understand materials, energy, tainting with elementals, and elemental consumption? Well then Malchar has got you covered!
Take 30 minutes of your time, and become a tempering expert through his video. He managed to create a weapon with 999 attack within around three hours of starting a new game, so with his guidance you can at least make something that makes you the nightmare of Nightmare Mode, and probably instill some fear into No Future as well.
Check the links in the description of his video for the tables and a forging simulator. As a bit of useful information, consider the following:
Visit Gato Grottoes and speak to the student walking around the shop area to get your fix on Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water Stones. Check out the shop before Monique’s lamp shop in Lumina to stock up on Sun, Moon, Glow, and Chaos crystals. A student at the Bone Fortress has some seeds and produce for sale. Gold Clovers can be quite useful for their high energy level, and Mush-In-A-Box are useful for Shade essence, though you’ll probably grow plenty of your own.
For some of the more important tempering materials, such as Ash and Mirror Pieces, you may need to stock up on them during a New Game (they’re limited to a few chests!) or try your luck at Ring Ring Land.
Up for preorder on the Square-Enix store, you can find three Mana Music Boxes for sale. They’re pretty expensive, and the shipping is pretty high as well, but it’s pretty cool these came to the North American Square-Enix store.
It has info on what foods do what, as well as how pets naturally grow over time. That way you can plan out how you want to raise your pet. If you want to know where to find eggs, that’s over on the Monsters – Eggs and Drops page.
Right now there is only a special Polter Box diet on the page, but maybe I’ll add more as time goes on. Polter Boxes are everyone’s favorite, so I thought it should be included.
In the Legend of Mana Card Duel section of the site (It will get its own area on the menu sometime soon) you can now read some information about the methods with which players would get cards.
The Booster Packs page has very little information, because despite owning a number of them I have never opened one and don’t actually know what to expect! I did include some nice images of the sides of a booster pack and a booster pack box.
The Starter Decks page has a ton of information on the other hand. It has some nice images of a starter deck, but also goes way in-depth talking about what comes inside these decks. By watching some old videos of myself opening these, I was able to determine some interesting things: 1) there are at least two types of starter decks and they come with different amounts of certain cards, 2) cards are put into the starter decks in specific orders so it’s easy to know what is coming up next, and 3) there appear to be some cards that will never show up in a starter deck. So, if that is the case, how did I complete my collection without opening booster packs? Well on this page you can follow along and see what cards I got when and how I got them.
Maybe someday in the future I’ll open some booster packs and starter decks and record it, if anyone is interested.
Look forward to more Legend of Mana Card Duel information in the future!
