In life, everyone has their own way of doing things. The same can be said of Castaway 2. Here are some things to consider when playing:
- What type of pet you want to have by your side. Pets are an important part in Castaway 2. They are the loyal allies who will fight by your side. Having the right type of pet can make a big difference. There are six types of pets: Ice (glacier anacondas), fire (firestarters), lightning (thunder vipers), poison (toxic beetles), healing (pixie dragons), and other (loomis). Personally, I just kept using the pink loomi throughout the game.
- What type of weapon to use. When it comes to weapons, you have a lot of choices. The best way to answer this question is to determine which weapon will benefit you the most. For example, if you rely on magical abilities, then you should probably use the deadwood staff or staff of the magi. If you prefer to use projectiles, then take a look at darts and ninja stars.
- Warrior or Magician? There are two "paths" to take when it comes to battle strategy. Do you want to be a warrior, who relies on brute strength? Or will you be a magician, who depends on magical abilities to help them? Either way works. If you want, you can do a little bit of both. Warriors will likely use the golem/minotaur armor. Magicians will likely use the paladin/saint armor.
- What abilities to use. Abilities can always come in handy during battle, especially if you are fighting a boss. With abilities, you have six options: Ice, fire, poison, lightning, healing, and other. It is a good idea to use a variety of abilities. My favorites are: shield slam, heal, fireball, ice shard, venom spit, lighning strike, thunder dome, and miasma. Of course, that's just me.
- How to defeat bosses. I really do not have to say anything here. You probably know what you're doing. Just make sure that you have potions ready just in case. Also, blasting poison at your enemies works well. On a final note, one should make sure that they are ready to take on a boss. Certain bosses (Puff No More, Fafnir, Vulcan, etc.) can be challenging.
