INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Level-Up Statistics guide for OKAGE: SHADOW KING. Lots of raw
data to mull over to your heart's content. If you seek to learn when someone's
MP goes up next, for example, you're in the right spot.

EXPECTATIONS

Statistics were recorded from the Status screen immediately after level-up,
rather than from the post-battle tally screen (see "Known Bugs" in the author's
OKAGE FAQ & Walkthrough).

Weapons ("Wepn" on-screen), gear (armor, "Eqpt"), and accessories ("Gurd")
alter the stats. Weapons and gear are unique to individual playable characters
(PCs) and required equipment. Accessories are interchangeable and optional
equipment (to unequip, select the same accessory so "item" displays for Gurd).

Data was recorded after switching to the initial or most basic equipment with
no accessory equipped, designated as "baseline equipment" for each character.

No candy items (permanent stat enhancements) were used. Ari's compatibility was
purposely not with Stan, the gift for which permanently increases Ari's stats.

Actual costs for Special skills that are based on a percentage of HP were
recorded from the Special menu (rather than derived from arithmetic).

Note. In making calculations of your own, be aware that for these figures OKAGE
generally rounds up to the next whole number. For example, 70.2 or 70.8 both
round up to 71, the actual cost incurred. OKAGE handles fractional values
different in other cases.


===============================================================================
A. LEVEL-UP BOOSTS

Allies join the party at static levels rather than based on the lead
character's level or any other criteria.

------- Legend -------------------------
LV .... Level
EP .... Experience Points
LP .... Labor (or sometimes Life) Points
HP .... Health (or Hit) Points
MP .... Magic Points (Magic in the menu)
AP .... Attack Points (Attack in the menu; Atk in equipment descriptions)
DP .... Defense Points (Dfense in the menu; Dfns in equipment descriptions)
LCK ... Luck (Lck)
AGL ... Agility (Agl)
SP .... Special skill is learned (!)
- ..... No change; not applicable (prior to becoming an ally)

How stats are laid out (roughly) on the Status screen:

   HP | LV
   ---+----
   EP | MP
   AP | LCK
   DP | AGL

LV in OKAGE tops off at 99. Level-up occurs every 1,000 EP (after cycling past
999 to 0; see RBury's Experience Point FAQ to learn more).

Besides LV and EP, OKAGE displays 6 visible stats for each character.

Note. At least 2 invisible stats are known (likely evasion, magic evasion), but
are addressed no further by this guide.

Of the 6 visible stats, 4 are potentially increased at level-up -- HP and AP
always increase; MP and DP increase only sometimes -- and those values are
documented for each character.

For the other 2 visible stats (AGL and LCK), the lack of an increase was also
confirmed at each level-up.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A1. ARI

An ordinary boy by whatever name, Ari begins at LV 1. His initial EP is zero.

BASELINE EQUIPMENT
Weapon ...... Picked up Branch (LV 1-2) ... AP +1
              Leftover Sword (LV 3-99) .... AP +5, LCK +5
Gear ........ Ordinary Outfit ............. DP +0
Accessory ... <none> ...................... <none>

A1.1 ARI'S LEVELING SPECIALS

At the levels flagged (!) above, Ari learns Special abilities.

LV SPECIAL           |  LV SPECIAL           |  LV SPECIAL
-- ----------------  |  -- ----------------  |  -- ----------------
 1 Decoy             |  12 Blaze Sword       |  36 Lightning Sword
 1 Overdrive         |  20 Heal              |  40 Slumber 
 4 Mend              |  24 Blizzard Sword    |  45 Restore
 8 Night             |  32 Revive            |  51 Life Spark

Ari's other Specials are learned at set points in the game, regardless of his
current level.


A1.2 ARI'S LV 99 SPECIAL COSTS

At LV 99, Specials based on a percentage of his HP cost:

SPECIAL                COST  |  SPECIAL                COST
------------------- -------  |  ------------------- -------
Overdrive             71 HP  |  Friendly Thunder      94 HP
Blaze Sword           24 HP  |  Friendly Blizzard    188 HP
Blizzard Sword        24 HP  |  Friendly Inferno     281 HP
Lightning Sword       24 HP  |

Note. These are the baseline LV 99 costs. If Life Candy items are used to
increase Ari's (or any PC's) HP, the LV 99 costs may increase too.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A2. ROSALYN

Rosalyn becomes a friend and ally at LV 5. Of all party members, Rosalyn alone
participates in a battle that can earn her 544 EP (barring the use of a cheat
device) prior to becoming a friend -- or zero EP, if she's KO'd when that
battle ends.

Equipment marked with an asterisk (*) are compatibility gifts, only one of
which may be acquired in a single playthrough.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B1. ACCESSORIES

An accessory can further increase a character's stats.

The "best" accessories that boost individual stats by +10 are unique -- only
one of each can be acquired per playthrough. Accessories boosting individual
stats by +5 or +1 are not so limited. Omnibooster, which boosts all stats +5,
may be equipped to all players by exploiting a "Useful Glitch" (documented in
the author's OKAGE FAQ & Walkthrough; only one of the +10 accessories is
available at that point).

ACCESSORY         INCREASES  HOW FOUND
----------------- ---------- -----------------------------------
Cerberus' Fang    Atk  +10   Treasure chest (World Library)
Iron Necklace     Dfns +10   Treasure chest (Big Tree Hole*)
Legendary Leaf    Lck  +10   Treasure chest (Escapeless Abyss*)
Divine Shoes      Agl  +10   Sidequest reward (Tenel Village)
* Chamber unlocked by the Forgotten Sword


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B2. DURATION

Elapsed time bringing the final character's LV up to 99: 73:36

The author quit (or hard reset) and restored the game if idling exceeded four
or five minutes. However, the author was also updating Soul Binding results
(bringing Epros up to LV 93 first in doing so) for the "Monster Droppings"
section of the author's starred FAQ & Walkthrough, so the mark is a decidedly
conservative time.

The best EP at end-game is awarded in World Library for defeating a grouping
composed of a Bad Poetry Golem and two Radiant Suns. They continue paying out
the maximum of 1,357 EP right up into the nineties. The grouping can be fairly
rare, however, so Quit and Restore if they're a no-show after 5-10 battles. Or
Quit and hard-reset the console if your results don't improve.

Find more leveling tips under "Status" in the "Menu" section of the author's
OKAGE FAQ & Walkthrough.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B3. STAT MAXING

A few absolute numbers.

HP .... 999  |  LV ..... 99
-----------  +  -----------
EP .... 999  |  MP ..... 99
AP .... 999  |  LCK .... 99
DP .... 999  |  AGL .... 99

LV can appear as 999 on Save and Load screens by using a cheat device, but
OKAGE is programmed to correct that false reading back to 99 at the first
opportunity.

EP shows a remainder of the experience earned when LV 99 is achieved. No
further EP is awarded post-battle from then on. However, in the Status menu EP
continues increasing at the rate of 1 EP per battle, until EP 999 is reached.

For stat maxing, concentrate on the following enemies.

ITEM           EFFECT  MONSTER           LOCATION
-------------- ------- ----------------- -----------------
Agility Candy   AGL +1 Growling Lion     Big Tree Hole
Defense Candy    DP +1 Celestial Wyvern  Addashi Desert
Heart Candy      MP +1 Bed Head Walrus   Sealed Cave
Life Candy       HP +5 Pink Elephant     Pospos Snowfield
Lucky Candy     LCK +1 Rayless Sea Ray   Deep Grave Pit
Power Candy      AP +1 Daring Dino       Deep Grave Pit

While the monsters may drop these items normally, with Epros's Soul Binding
they're a sure thing. Just be quick enough not to bore Stan to tears or your
efforts may come to naught by one Crushing Devil.

FAQ & Walkthrough.

C2. FAQ INFO

Maxing levels had been deep down on the author's OKAGE to-do list for many
years, the task now finally complete. The author had documented experience
needs and level-up statistics for Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories (the
North American release for PS2) and then tackled the complete level-up
statistics for Kingdom Hearts (the original North American release for PS2), so
the methods had been tested and refined, polished enough for OKAGE.

AWARDS

This guide was honored by the GameFAQs editors and awarded FAQ OF THE MONTH for
December 2013.

Trivia. Which makes this the third guide for BOKU TO MAOU and OKAGE to be so
honored. Not shabby at all for an overshadowed game.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Thanks to the OKAGE board's many faithful denizens who keep the game alive, all
these years later. To all who tirelessly slave over GameFAQs.com. To those at
SCEA who brought OKAGE to North American audiences. And most especially, to the
delightfully demented minds of Zener Works.

If this guide proved useful to you and you believe it might help the next
player, at GameFAQs.com click the "recommend" link in the guide's header.

Plea. OKAGE is a true PS2 "classic" title and gamers deserve to see the fine
three-dimensional work of the PS2's early days. Please rerelease OKAGE in a
modern format, Sony -- even if only as-is, warts and all. (Thank you, dear
reader, for letting Sony hear your plea.)
