Welcome to Etria

In a vast and fertile land lies a small town known as Etria, a peaceful village that became famous for a startling discovery. A crack in the vast forest opened at Etria’s edge, leading downward like a gaping maw. Those who heard rumours of the Labyrinth of Etria, whether young or old, began to harbour dreams of exploring it.

Riches... fame... prestige... all that and one more thing does the Labyrinth promise: the true spirit of adventure, on the perilous edge of death. This is an adventure not for the faint of heart...

  Etrian_Odysee_motiv_etria.jpg

If you dare, you’ll explore the massive Yggdrasil Labyrinth from a first-person perspective and fight your way through it with a guild of your own creation. Choose your guild members wisely from the nine available classes, for the Labyrinth is vast and deep, and will put a swift end to unwary explorers.

How quickly can you defeat the more than 125 different types of monsters before they call on their brethren – or before even more fearsome creatures join the fray? The key to survival is both a keen fighting sense and master mapmaking skills. Sometimes navigating out of the way of nasties is the key to survival, and a good map will help you avoid falling into the same trap twice.

It’s easy to lose yourself in twisting passageways, but your chances of survival increase exponentially when you use the Nintendo DS Touch Screen and stylus to map your surroundings. Click here to find out how the map creator works, and good luck in the Labyrinth. You’ll need it.

Character Classes

Gather in the Golden Deer Pub and get to know your guildmates. In the Labyrinth, your team’s support is the difference between life and death.

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_hexaster.jpg

Hexcaster

Like the dark hunter, the hexcaster is adept at crippling enemies with status ailments, but the hexcaster has an even deadlier power over monsters. Once an opponent falls victim to a hexcaster’s Evil Eye curse, they cannot help but obey the hexcaster’s orders to destroy their comrades - or even themselves. In addition to the standard status ailments, a hexcaster can also weaken an enemy’s attack and defensive strength, as well as its speed.

Strengths

  • Can reduce an enemy’s power to nothing

Weaknesses

  • Low defence, few direct attack abilities

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_Alchemist.jpg

Alchemist

These accomplished magic-users can exploit an enemy’s elemental weaknesses to the fullest with their powerful magic formulas. In addition to their repertoire of Fire, Ice and Voltage spells, they can also poison enemies and have useful field skills, such as determining the location of powerful enemies and warping safely to a nearby Geomagnetic Field.

Strengths

  • Second-to-none elemental spells

Weaknesses

  • Low attack power, defence and Hit Points

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_dark-hunter.jpg

Dark Hunter

Masters of inflicting status ailments, the dark hunters can bind their enemies before moving in for the kill. Their proficiency with whips allows them to totally immobilise an enemy before draining the last of its life, and when equipped with a sword, they can deliver pinpoint strikes to paralyse, confuse or petrify a monster. Even their own party members aren’t safe from their deadly games, since they can use their own comrades as bait for a trap.

Strengths

  • Can inflict most status ailments

Weaknesses

  • Low attack and defence under normal circumstances

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_survivalist.jpg

Survivalist

Crafty dungeon explorers whose knowledge of the Labyrinth gives them an advantage over their foes, survivalists can blend into shadows, making them harder to hit. They can also raise the entire party’s speed, turning the tide of battle in your favour before the fight even starts. Their bows allow them to attack from either line with no damage penalty, and a few skills let them attack multiple enemies at once.

Strengths

  • Effective status enhancements, useful woodland skills

Weaknesses

  • Low attack power, no elemental attacks

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_bard.jpg

Bard

Those who can’t fight... sing! Though the bard class is weak in both attack and defence, their songs can boost the rest of the party to even greater heights. Various songs can increase the rest of the group’s Hit Points and Technique Points, lend elemental properties to their weapons and even give them more experience after a successful battle. They can also help debilitate the enemy, cancelling any status benefits the monsters may have and lowering their resistance to elemental magic.

Strengths

  • Can increase the party’s effectiveness

Weaknesses

  • Not very effective in battle themselves

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_protector.jpg

Protector

Protectors are holy knights who specialise in defending both themselves and the rest of the party. Their versatile defences can be applied to themselves, a particular line or the entire party, guarding those who need it most. Not limited to physical defences, the protectors can also guard against elemental attacks. Their skill with a weapon is also formidable, and a few basic healing skills round out their arsenal.

Strengths

  • Excellent defence, high attack power, healing abilities

Weaknesses

  • Specific defences are a gamble, no elemental attacks

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_medic.jpg

Medic

All-purpose healers for the party, a medic can undo any damage dealt. Their skills range from healing status ailments to curing wounds and even resurrecting dead party members. They can also confer beneficial status effects, such as Hit Points regeneration and elemental resistance. Though their defence makes it a risky proposition, putting them on the front lines gives the surprisingly strong medics a chance to show off what kind of damage they can do.

Strengths

  • Versatile range of healing skills, good attack power

Weaknesses

  • Low defence and HP

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_landsknecht.jpg

Landsknecht

Powerhouses who can deal damage when you need it most, landsknechts aren’t afraid to rush into any situation, no matter how dangerous, and get their hands dirty. Their physical strength comes at the cost of defence, and if you’re willing to take a gamble, some of their skills can tilt the balance even further toward raw power by abandoning defence entirely. A few elemental skills make sure they can pitch in even in fights against magical enemies.

Strengths

  • High attack power, capable of multiple attacks

Weaknesses

  • Low defence, few non-physical attacks

aaa_Etrian_Odysee_samurai.jpg

Samurai

Samurai are warriors from a foreign land whose skill in combat surpasses even the landsknecht’s. These swordsmen can adopt three stances in battle, each strengthening the Samurai in different ways and allowing them to use different skills. From the Overhead stance, they can attack with burning blades; from the Seigan stance, they can deflect enemy attacks; and from the Iai stance, they can deliver strikes so blindingly fast as to destroy a monster in one hit.

Strengths

  • Unmatched physical attacks, versatile skills

Weaknesses

  • Changing stances eats up turns in battle
