II. Analysis of Faraland’s 7 races
Each race has its own unique characteristics and power that cannot be replaced. Let’s dig deeper and analyze each race:
1. Human (Rarity: 50% of the population of Faraland)
Humans are the largest inhabitants of the Faraland Continent.They hold 50% of the total population. They can be found everywhere and they hold important roles in the whole Faraland Society. They may not be as physically strong as the Orcs or as wise as the Elves, but Human heroes have their own unique skills. Human heroes’ strength lies in their military skills and advanced technological development. They played an important role in the victory over The Demon Lord Beelzebub.
In terms of stats, Humans are a balanced race, as their characteristics are not too concentrated in any specific aspect. However, it creates a race with a very high degree of customization in gameplay. Players can use Humans as they want, depending on the situation. Humans can play as tanks, gladiators or magicians.
2. Orc ( Rarity: 24,6% of the population of Faraland)
The Orcs are known for their superior physical strength and outstanding endurance in the whole Faraland continent. They are born with muscular bodies and a seemingly unlimited fighting power.
These characteristics of the Orcs give them higher Strength stats. They have an average speed and mobility. They have the lowest stats on Intelligence among the 7 races. Orcs are suitable for heavy labor work as their endurance is really high.
Orcs take the role as the best Tanks in Faraland. They can take the forefront with their impressive vitality and great physical strength. They are very flexible as tanks or gladiators.
3. Elf ( Rarity: 20% of the population of Faraland)
Elves are the spirits of the deep forest, they are a mythical race with magical powers to heal, summon trees and animals. Elves are known for their high Agility. Elves are known for their mastery of sophisticated weapons with hidden magic.
When fighting,Elves prefer to use bows as their main weapons. In many cases, they can even master both knives and daggers. Among the seven Heroes, Elves have the highest Agility Stats. They are blessed with higher luck also giving them high chances of inflicting critical damage to their enemies.
Having high agility gives them high attack speed. They are suitable for long distance attacks when equipped with Bow and arrows. As expert weapon masters, they are efficient assasins when equipped with daggers and knives.
4. Fairy (Rarity: 4% of the population of Faraland)
Fairies hold the magic of nurturing and protecting the flowers. Despite their small bodies, the magical power hidden within them cannot be underestimated. Holding the secret of time, they can freeze or accelerate the flow of time. Moreover, holding the power of time grants them eternal youth and enchanting beauty.
With their small body frame and fragile appearance, their strength is not appreciated. In terms of agility or flexibility, they are just average. However, what they lack in strength they make up for their Intelligence. Fairies preferred weapons are wands and daggers.
Holding a vast amount of magic, Fairies can be a great support to a team. They can play the role of a reliable mage in gameplay.
5. Dragonborn (Rarity: 1% of the population of Faraland)
Very few people have ever seen the Dragon as they are a mythical race of the Faraland Continent. Having the invincible power and the wisdom of the gods, their thirst for knowledge always surpasses all other races. With huge bodies and rough scales, they often wear light and thin clothes. In addition, the dragon’s signature magic is the ability to transform into an opponent’s appearance. In all wars, the Dragonborn race always keeps a neutral position. They are always the most senior and aristocratic race and have a strong belief in God.
Dragonborn’s strength is quite comprehensive, their Strength and Intelligence stats are both at respectable levels. Because of their massive body, their mobility is not too special. Having abundant vitality and ancient magic, every team yearns for Dragonborn to help. Dragonborn is the only race in the game that possesses both physical and magical damage at a very high level.
6. Demon (Rarity: 0,2% of the population of Faraland)
In the legend, Demons are divided into two types: Pureblood Demons and Dark Shadow. Pureblood demons were born from a black hole in the universe, carrying within them the darkest magic. They are usually huge, thorny and fearsome. Their origin stems from the flames that carry the seeds of destruction. Anyone who touches them will burn and wither.
The second type of Demons are the Dark Shadow Demons. They were originally Angels and Humans whose hearts have fallen and consumed by hate and darkness. Fueled with extreme greed, Demons aim to take over all resources and to ultimately conquer the whole of Faraland.In addition to Pureblood demons, Humans with a dark nature, fallen Angels, or any other creatures with a wicked heart have become Demons. They are all collectively known as Dark Shadow.
Demons are a race with well-rounded strength. Their stats can easily overwhelm their enemies. However, with small numbers and greedy nature they lack unity as a race. Those who are on the same line with them must be very careful, Demons will turn them into slaves with demonic magic at any time. The most commonly used weapon by Demons is the Crescent or Dark Crystal Ball.
7. Angel (Rarity: 0,2% of the population of Faraland)
In the legend, Angels are actually a race from another universe. They are explorers traveling around different planets with the desire to discover new worlds. As the strongest race, Angels have a tall, muscular build with long wavy platinum-colored hair. They are also beautiful creatures with high straight noses, white skin, and blue eyes. They used to live in a World where natural resources were dwindling, so they always yearned for a natural habitat, away from buildings and basements. The journey to find a new land, which brought them to Faraland.
All Angels consider themselves a transcendent race with ancient magic. Their mission is to protect the world. Contrary to Demons, Angel’s magic is to protect everything on this planet. They always support the righteous side; therefore, the warriors participating in the war against the demon lord Beelzebub always want Angels in the team to help.
Angels are true Gods, so their Intelligent stat is extremely high. Having the power from another planet, they also have a tall build and wings, which makes them flexible in the battlefield.
III. Line-up suggestions in Faraland
Once understanding the characteristics and strengths of each race, players can choose a team that suits their playstyle. Players can send 3 heroes to battle each time they fight to form a team with complementary abilities. We will suggest some basic teams for beginners, which can be compiled with a reasonable investment, but still ensure the tactical nature of the game.
1. Line-up 1: Human – Human – Human
Pros: This is the cheapest team because Humans are the most versatile characters in Faraland. Therefore, players can build and increase points for 3 Humans to complement each other. In addition, you should choose 3 heroes with 3 different elemental systems to make your team stronger in battle. Since they are all Humans, Hero items can be worn together, which should be economical.
Cons: Building a team with 3 heroes of the same race will limit the variety of skills. Another downside is that with special missions, players will need heroes with the required race to be able to enter the quest.
2. Line-up 2: Human – Human – Orc
Pros: Reasonable investment costs and acceptable efficiency. Orcs can play as a tank, while the two Humans behind can be used flexibly.
Cons: It is suggested that one Human should be able to use magic to maximize the strength of the team. Please note this point to choose heroes with innate Stats, which can match the predefined build direction.
3. Line-up 3: Elf – Human – Orc
Pros: This is the most optimal team for a player at a reasonable price. This formation is harmonious in all 3 positions. When Elf will be the damage dealer behind, Human can play as a semi tank or he can buff the skill effect, Orc can be a tank in the front. Moreover, each race can be built in many directions. When necessary, players can erase points and rebuild very flexibly, depending on certain cases and their creativity. (e.g., Elf as a melee assassin, Human as a support magic, Orc as a block melee,…)
Cons: This team is pretty superior in every way, but the irreparable weakness is that none of the heroes have wings. This will be a disadvantage when fighting in some specific terrain. There are some missions that require the use of a winged hero to complete.
Hopefully, this article can help players get a deeper understanding about the races in Faraland and build a satisfactory team. We always want to build a gameplay with high personal creativity in terms of tactics. If you have any creative ideas about new lineups, please share them on Faraland’s social platforms.
