early, easy EXP farming in the game. This is my first guide for 2016 and the
first one since the last guide I did back in 2009 (Gambling FAQ for GTA: San
Andreas PS2 version). It's been 7 years!

4. Main Content
===============================================================================

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A. Pre-requisites [REQ]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This EXP farming is best done at the beginning of Chapter 4. After beating an
Eater in Shinjuku's Digital Shift dungeon during Chapter 4, you'll be back in
the Kuremi Detective Agency. Check the white board and accept the case "A Life
Crisis!?" with a blue pin. Before exiting the agency, head to Kowloon Lv. 2 by
interacting with the TV. Once there, get a 200% scan for a Wanyamon here. Go to
the DigiLab and use the scan to acquire a Wanyamon. Wanyamon is used for
acquiring a Digimon that gives a hefty amount of EXP when used in battle. Do
this 3 times so you have 3 Wanyamons. Put them in your party and exit Kowloon
Lv. 2. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Farming Location [LOC]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exit the agency and head left. Go all the way south to see a place where you
can Connect Jump. Interact it with the X button to be taken to a Digital Space
network.

I recommend you not to finish the case as you can always come back to it and
level your other Digimons. This dungeon has 5 Digimons to be encountered in
total. This is where you level your 3 Wanyamons. On the first level, you
encounter 3 Digimons: Greymon, Dorugamon and Peckmon. All of which give 548 EXP
when killed.

Your target Digimon is PlatinumNumemon. There are a lot of ways you could get
him but I recommend you use this digivolution path:

        Wanyamon > Kudamon > GoldNumemon > Vademon (for Nightmare III) > de-
digivolve to GoldNumemon > PlatinumNumemon

The reason why you need to Digivolve to Numemon before going to PlatinumNumemon
is for its Nightmare III dark skill (learned at Level 45), which helps kill the
Digimons in this dungeon. 

-----
NOTE: 
This EXP farming will take a couple of hours but once you have 3
PlatinumNumemons in your party, leveling your other Digimon will become a lot
easier. Having 3 Tactician USBs for each PlatinumNumemon (a total of 9) will
yield a bigger EXP gain.
-----

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
C. Hunting for the Tactician USBs [HNT]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tactician USBs are equipments that boost the EXP gain after battles. There a
couple of ways to obtain Tactician USBs:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
- Nakano Digimon Festival
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Obtained as a case reward for completing "Nakano Digimon Festival" case (DLC 3
case - install the "Mission Pack 1" DLC to unlock this case.)

++++++++++++++++
- Victory Uchida
++++++++++++++++

In Chapter 19, head to Shinjuku. Use your Stealth Hide hacking skill and enter
the 2nd area. Approach him near the Digital Shift entrance to receive 1
Tactician USB.

++++++++++++++++++++++
- King Drasil miniboss
++++++++++++++++++++++

In Chapter 20, you'll have 4 encounters with this mini-boss (one before you go
into the King Drasil Core). On your last encounter with it, there's a big
chance it drops 1 Tactician USB.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
- PlatinumNumemon encounters
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

> Boss battle from DLC 3 case (possible drop).
> Encounter at Tokyo Metropolitan Office 48-49F. There's a slim chance that you
get to encounter him at 36-40F too.
> Legendary Cup. This becomes available after clearing Platinum Cup in the
Offline Coliseum and reaching Chapter 16. This is one of the battles where the
PlatinumNumemon joins PrinceMamemon and MetalEtemon (guaranteed drop).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D. DigiFarm Development [DEV]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can also get Tactician USB in the DigiFarm via the DigiLab. At Chapter 1,
you will only have access to 1 farm island but as you go farther into the game,
you will find Farm Development Kits through chests that is used for adding more
farm islands into the game. Farm Expansion Plugin is for increasing the farm
level, and increasing the number of farm goods that can be placed.
	
For me, this one is a little harder. I've had so many tries developing
Tactician USBs before getting at least 1 of it. Prepare at least 151,000 Yen
(assuming you've made it farther into the game, no Builder Digimon and no
Developer Know-How):

        Developer Know-How: 25,000 Yen x  5 = 125,000 Yen
        Development Patch :  2,500 Yen x 10 =  25,000 Yen
        1,000 Yen Dev't   :  1,000 Yen x  1 =   1,000 Yen
        -------------------------------------------------
        TOTAL:                                151,000 Yen

STEPS:
        1. Fill at least 1 farm island with 10 Builder Digimon. If you need to
change their personalities to "Builder", access EDEN and go to EDEN Entrance.
Go north and interact with the shop on the left. Buy the Development Patch
(costs 2,500 Yen and is available on Chapter 2). Change the Digimons that will
be placed in the farm to Builder personality.
        2. Go to DigiLab and interact with the shop. Buy 5 Developer Know-How
(costs 25,000 Yen and is available at Chapter 1).
        3. Go to your DigiFarm. Use 2 or more farm islands if you can 
(recommended). This will speed up the process and greater chances of getting 
the Tactician USB in one go.
        4. Pick Farm Goods and place your Develop Know-How farm goods into each
slot (each level of the farm increases the number of slots available, up to 5).
        5. Pick Command then Develop. Choose the 1,000 Yen option. 
        6. The table belows show the completion time of each development based
on the number of Builder Digimon you have on a farm.

 _________________________________________
| # OF BUILDER DIGIMONS | COMPLETION TIME |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          Zero         |   100 minutes   |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          One          |   95 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          Two          |   65 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|         Three         |   50 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          Four         |   40 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          Five         |   35 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|          Six          |   30 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|      Seven/Eight      |   25 minutes    |
|-----------------------|-----------------|
|       Nine/Ten        |   20 minutes    |
 -----------------------------------------

If you're successful in developing Tactician USBs, you should get at least 2
per farm island, assuming you have 10 Builder Digimons and 5 Develop Know-How
goods. This requires a bit of luck, because it's a rare chance for your
Digimons to develop the item.
