1. Introduction

Welcome to my little repository of stuff that 95% of La Tale players don't really care about! This pile of tl;dr is intended for those of us who are still learning to play this time-waster we call a "game", whether for sheer curiosity about certain comparisons or just needing the extra bit of info to take it the next level of gaming. Please note that most of the stuff presented here only deals with current OGP La Tale. If you look hard enough, you'll find certain individuals/guilds will have information far beyond what is provided here, particularly with Korean La Tale, which, at last check, was approximately one year ahead of us in terms of content.

All data found in my spreadsheets were obtained from internal game files, which are available to anyone who bothers to download La Tale. It is merely formatted into something more readable. What you decide to do with the data is up to you. Everything else can be found with a little bit of due diligence. You may be able to find some info on the ggftw Wiki, but as it hasn't been significantly updated for quite a while, your chances are slim.

This is still a Work-In-Progress, which has been going on over the course of a few months. This is largely based on what I'm interested in at any given time, so certain things that should be available (in my opinion, of course) may not be present here. All of my spreadsheets are available in Excel through Google Docs. You can find the Master Swor... uh, link, here. Google Docs is sorted by when stuff was most recently modified down to much older stuff. My settings do not permit anyone but myself to edit anything, so if you feel the spreadsheets look ugly, feel free to download them and screw with them yourself. Be warned that Google Docs is very limited, that most of these spreadsheets were created with Office 2007, and uploaded and converted into Google's formatting. Therefore, when you download them, expect all formatting to be screwed to hell. Particularly the colors. Oh god, my colors...

As with any Massively Multiplayer Online game, I do not expect certain things to change very often, like droprates or defense values of monsters. Therefore, don't expect any of my spreadsheets to be updated every two weeks. However, I will make the effort to update them when we get actual content updates, such as new areas or equipments, or if somebody notices something out of the ordinary, such as severely lowered droprates of certain items.

That being said, all copyrights and trademarks belong to their respective owners.

2. [Spreadsheets] Just farm Coliseum. That way, you don't have to think, OK?

This is a collection of my spreadsheets, which can also be found here. There will be new stuff added periodically, until I've gone through every file and squeezed every last bit of info out of them. Each spreadsheet will be tailored to its individual characteristics, so while Quest spreadsheets will look similar, some will be missing certain fields that others have, simply because they are unnecessary for that particular batch of quests.

All values and names come straight from internal values. This explains why you see such oddities as "Advanced Golem for Work Illustrated Card" or "Chunsiklia" (I changed certain monster names to reflect what you see ingame). I mean, really? Are we back in the 80's or something?

Some spreadsheets will come with their own description of what its about inside the spreadsheet itself, which you can find in the Overview tab. Some spreadsheets may also contain a tab labeled Overview - Charts & Labels (or just Labels), describing various column headings and/or displaying some smaller tables that would screw up the formatting of the Overview tab. Other spreadsheets should be self-explanatory, so you'll find a brief description about it here.

2a.[Lists & Tables] What you didn't know you wanted to know, but now know it anyways.

Armor Sets(Non-Fashion) - All non-NPC, non-fashion armor sets and their bonuses. That would be Ruby/Sapphire, elementals, Class, Coliseum, Epic, and TAID. Darkness set currently not included, mainly because I'm not sure of certain set bonuses.

Crafting - A listing of everything you can craft with the crafting skills. Includes crafting experience table and unreleased 5th tier craftable items. Does not include item stats, but does include skill levels. Also includes Cooking quests, which are found in the Alchemy - Food tab at the very bottom. This spreadsheet will be somewhat modified when the Season 2 update comes; food crafting will be most affected, and armor crafting will gain the Soul Breaker class set armors.

Enchanting tables - A set of tables detailing stats gained from normal Puzzles, Super Puzzles, and Cubes. Averages may be slightly off due to how I calculated, and not knowing how the game handles decimals.

Experience Tables - A set of tables listing out necessary experience requirements for various level-controlled things. Includes Base Level for OGP with a side-by-side comparison to Korea (for lulz), Crafting, Reputation (with a bit of info gleaned from future updates), and PvP. Pet experience tables can be found in the Pet database (see below).

Locked Box - Mostly a trolling joke, but at the time I was genuinely curious about what was in those Locked Boxes you see in lower/mid level areas. Basically a compilation of everything you can find in all 10 types of Locked Boxes (1 for each skill level, which determines what area Locked Boxes you can open).

Mining - A guide of how to mine, where to mine, and what you get for hours of hitting the same button a few hundred thousand times. Mining is typically used by beginners to make money, as minerals gained by Mining are used for all levels of upgrading, crafting equipment, and other things.

Monster Droplist(Limited, Non-Quest) - The crowning achievement in how to do a lot in very little time. Contains almost everything a monster can drop, assuming it has a Card. If it doesn't drop a Card (see Monster Encyclopedia below), then it's not in here. Does not include NPC equipment or NPC potions. Includes initial "loose" items, cards, Miscellaneous itemsets, Soul Urn itemsets, and their respective droprates, both for itemsets and items within. Certain multi-stage bosses drop certain things at certain stages, so some things are still under investigation. As of this particular second, I'm not sure where the NPC Quest Items are located, so those aren't here for the time being.

Monster Encyclopedia - Also known as Monster Illustrations. A listing of every card obtainable, along with cards present in the initial Season 2 update for Korea. Sorted by Level range, and listed out as seen in game.

Pets - A listing of every pet and its associated bonuses, regardless of availability (Rat pet is not available, nor does anyone expect it to be). Pet buff stacking rules and experience tables can be found in Overview - Charts & Labels.

2b. [Quests] I'm a professional gopher. Go for items, go for kills.

Unlike Pie's quest guide, this is sorted by monster area first, then by level. I find this more useful, as some monster areas have quests coming from more than one city/town. Significantly more compact and possibly much more convoluted, be prepared to see lots of colors. You might also note that internal level requirements differ from listed ingame requirements. I did not include listed ingame requirement levels, because it's a moot point as long as it's available to you.

Quest pre-requisites, monster locations, NPC locations, relevant droprates, and rewards are included.

I'm currently re-organizing lower level quests, because the everything is convoluted it's almost like this game was programmed by a bunch of highschoolers. At least later quests are better structured... at the cost of being monotonous.

Food quests are found in the Crafting spreadsheet (see above).

[url= Gc&hl=en_US#gid=0]3rd Class Quests - Elemental Master[/ur] My journey through the 3rd class quests as a pure Fire Sorcerer working towards Elemental Master. Includes notes and observations about certain quests. This may or may not be rendered obsolete when the Season 2 update arrives.

Asgard - Hanger (140), Solar Farm (145), D-Labo (150), related Longest Tree (145), and related Hell quests (155-165). Also includes the 2 quests initiated by specific items dropped by Asgard monsters. My apologies for the color bombardment. This is one of those way out of the way areas where I wish I had a Warp Crystal.

Daily, Random - All levels. All Daily and Random Quests. Experience gain, reward items, and chances of getting a particular Random quest also included. Also lists out some quests that were left out.

Item Based - All levels. NPC Items, SS Scroll, Guild, and Guild Egg quests. As of this particular second it does not include what drops NPC Items or SS Scrolls.

No Name World - Fairy Forest (45-53), Cloud Villa (108-112, 169), and Bakery Street (158-168) quests. This is pretty incomplete, because I haven't found the follow up quests fo Siam Vespucci. Which is why I don't know what to name this thing. Feh.

Preios - El Anoir Field South (106-125) and West (136-140), Subclass (140), Field East (142-146), Mountains (155-163), Field North (177-185), and Sky Command Crash Site (185-191) quests. TAID quests (Beginner Invoke TAID quests are in Elias Palace) will be added later.

Webfoot Octopus Temple - Webfoot Octopus Shrine quests. Great for free NPC Potions. Masked Octopus, Sunny, and Pirate Cats inhabit the top route. Conch Shell Octopus, Ganster Cat, and Octopus of Freedom occupy the lower route. I mention this because the 30-repeat quests are easily completed, so your best bet it cruise through those on your way to doing slightly more complicated quests.

3. [Other people's stuff] Isn't La Tale a single player game? What is this, I don't even...

This is a compilation of stuff I would bookmark, except my bookmarks list is too damn long already. Most of this is stuff that I think is actually worthwhile to look at. Consequently, there's some pretty heavy bias as to what's in this section (primarily based on how much "effort" was put into it, or its "usefulness").
