Tips and Tricks – Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance Wiki Guide


Latest edition:

Welcome to IGN Tips and tricks guide for Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. D&D: Dark Alliance is an action RPG for one to four players and it can be quite difficult if you are new to this type of hack and slash gameplay.

Below you will find some tips and tricks to get you started on your journey!


Character selection

If you are a brand new player, we highly recommend using Catti-Brie the Human Archer or Bruenor Battlehammer the Dwarf Fighter. Bruenor is an easy-to-use melee character thanks to his high health and defense, and he even starts off with a powerful area-of-effect movement that will help deal with groups of enemies.

Catti-Brie is a ranged character who can deal massive damage without having to get too close, ideal for players who prefer to stay clear of danger. Her charged arrow attack can stun most enemies, and she has an area-of-effect healing spell that’s great for staying healthy during long missions.

Upgrade and use your potions

Once you’ve got some gold in your pocket, your first purchase should be new consumables and potion upgrades. Visit the merchant to buy new potions (Stamina and Ultimate are great choices), then upgrade them to be more effective.


In missions, it’s easy to be stingy with your consumables due to their limit, but remember that you can collect your consumables at random from treasure chests and you can reload them during the various short rests in the city. within the missions! (The same advice applies to your ultimate and abilities cooldowns. They return faster than you think, so use them!)

Don’t be afraid to run away …

As you progress through the game, you may find yourself overwhelmed by large groups of powerful enemies. Due to the heaviness of combat, it’s easy to be knocked down and killed instantly by a series of attacks, or get stunned locked in a deadly enemy combo.

If you find yourself in any of these situations, just use the enemies’ AI and run away! Most enemies won’t leave their designated area and will simply return to their starting position once you jump over a gap or climb a ledge. Use this moment to regain a foothold, heal, or (if you have a powerful ranged attack) take them out from afar.

… and never stop moving!

To take advantage of the last tip, another great tactic is to never stop moving! The enemy AI in this game is very straightforward, and it will always target where you were and hardly ever where you are going. For this reason, you want to avoid combos, especially when fighting a group. Combos can lock you into animation, making you very vulnerable to enemy attacks.

Most of the characters have a pretty good dash attack or quick strike options that you can use while moving through battle. Try to make good use of it unless you are fighting an enemy one on one.


Many meetings are optional

As an adventurer, your natural instinct will be to want to kill any enemies you come across, but if a group of enemies is not part of your current objective, you can often overtake them, allowing you to accomplish missions faster and easier. Of course, this will result in less XP and rewards, but it could also be just the thing to help you complete certain missions more easily.
