  1. It depends on which stats your are looking to maximize. The first four letters of your name are the only ones that count toward your stats, and it also depends a little bit on whether or not they are capitalized.

    For HP and MP, enter "TEST" as your name, with an edge in HP.

    There are numerous names that can affect the four stats. There is a website you can use for this, but it cannot be posted here.

    The stats affected are HP, MP, Strength, and Agility, and different names have strong growth toward 2 stats, and lesser growth toward the other 2 stats.

    Strength affects overall Attack Power (Strength+Weapon Strength) and Agility affects Defense power overall (Agility/1.5)[+Armor Defense][+Shield Defense]

    I cannot link you the Dragon Warrior Battle Simulator here, but you can find it on the message board.

  2. your formula for defense is slightly off:
    agility STAT / 2+armor def = defense STAT

  1. There is no "best stats" per se. Regardless of which name you choose, two of your stats (compared to the game's growth table for the hero) will be penalized at later levels but possibly gain a small bonus at the first few levels, while two will not suffer any changes.

    However, I believe there was some research done in the past that showed that you had the best chances against the final boss at the lowest possible levels by having better strength and maximum HP. So if you wanna go by that, a name that keeps strength and hp normal is the way to go.

    Therefore, search online for a dw1 stat calculator and keep plugging in names until you get one that gives good str and hp.

    However, there's really not much of a difference, so if you don't want to worry about that, you don't have to. There is no ultimate build.

  3. Or try 'Why' as your name. 'Why?' gives you mp instead of strength but 'Why' gives you HP & strength
