The Legend of Dragoon Wiki

Forest is the first location visited after Seles. It is the first place the player meets monsters at and the first place to have a maze in it. As occasionally happens, it is an outdoor area with monster battles, but has an NPC merchant selling items in it.

Many creatures in the Forest have the extremely high Magic Defense stat of 120, much higher than other creatures on Disc One or even Two. Presumably this is to guard against massive overkill, should players go back to areas at the very start of the game to see how much damage they can deal.

Previous area : Seles
Next area : Hellena Prison


Chapter 1:The Serdian War[]

A Friend in Hellena[]

Dart remembers protecting Shana.

Dart must travel through the Forest in order to get to Hellena Prison which is on the west side of the forest. Half-way through, Dart runs into a dog that reminds him of when he protected Shana from a dog like creature that attacked her in the forest when they were children.

"Multiple exposure" of Darts, and the Merchant far left. The blue triangle marker turns red to show the distance remaining before a battle, and in battle to show decreasing health. There are green and yellow ones, too, indicating exits. L1 or R1 to toggle

There is a Merchant to the left at the first visit in the forest. In a slightly different way than Master Tasman gave his tutorial, he can teach the player about using items in battle. This technique of presenting dialogue is sprinkled through the game and a little heavier at the start.

He claims that Elemental items do double damage against targets of the opposing element.

The Healing Items and Attack Items listed in the table are available in the shop. (Multi) Attack Items can be boosted in damage by repeatedly pressing the action button.
