Inflation RPG Guide

Updated on October 8, 2016

BP and Stats

Inflation RPG is unusual in the fact that rather than fighting many battles to gain a single level, most battles will net you several hundred levels at a time. The goal is to reach the highest level you can before you run out of BP (Battle Points), of which you start with 30.

It sounds a bit strange, but I assure you that the constant management of your stats, gear, and accessories makes this game oddly and exceedingly addictive. More importantly, it is available on IOS/Android, for all you mobile gamers out there. Anyway, on to the nuts and bolts.

Everything centers around Battle Points. As I mentioned, you start off with 30 of them at the beginning, and once you run out it's game over. Each fight, regardless of whether you win or lose, costs you one BP.Fighting and defeating bosses, along with certain accessories, will net you a few extra BP. Each time you lose a battle, you lose 3 BP.

After each fight, you gain XP, which is based on the actual level of the area in which you are fighting and any accessories to boost XP that you may have equipped. Each level grants you ability points, which you can put into any of the following:

  1. HP - Hit Points. You start with 100, and the ratio is 1 AP to 5 HP. In other words, every one AP you put into HP will get you 5 health.
  2. ATK - Attack. You start with 10, and it determines the damage you do.
  3. DEF - Defense. You start with 10, and it reduces enemy damage.
  4. AGI - Agility. Determines Critial Hit and combo rate, and critical damage.
  5. LUK - Luck. Increases the Loot Drop rate, increases gold drop amounts, and the critical hit rate.

Note that all stats are modified by the point value of the enemies you are fighting. Therefore, it requires higher stats to keep pace with enemies as their level increases.


Choosing Your Character

Once you start a game in Inflation RPG, you'll have to pick a character. Notice that on the character select screen the basic stats are present along with some outward-pointing arrows. What that indicates is that characters toward the top will have an easier time gaining ATK, etc.

Player Level, the Base Abilities number, is a stat modifier that is gained by killing certain bosses. Player Level is combined with Character Ability to grant a total stat bonus. Character Ability Levels are granted upon reaching certain XP totals across multiple play-throughs. Those XP numbers are as follows:

  1. 50,000 XP
  2. 450,000 XP
  3. 1,600,000 XP
  4. 4,200,000 XP
  5. 9,000,000 XP

Getting Started

Okay, enough explanations. Let's get the ball rolling and start playing. The first thing you'll probably notice is that every area has an Actual Level. This indicates the difficulty of the enemies you'll be tangling with, so mind where you walk. You'll get a warning if you enter an area that's obscenely above your current level, so beware for now.

Your first priority is going to be money, but to get money you've got to go fight. For the time being, try to keep your level close to the level of the area and fight your way south. It's not worth losing 3 BP right now, so take your time and distribute your stat points giving priority to HP, ATK, and DEF. Just slug it out with what you can until you run out of BP.

The Game Over screen will give you an opportunity to spend the gold you've earned before trying again. Bear in mind that gold does not carry over between plays, so spend every penny you possibly can on the best available weapon. Play through again, and this time get the best armor you can. One more time, and get yourself an HP gem (whatever the highest you can afford is.)

Essentially, once you're far enough along that you can take on and beat the Fox boss (which is just a few steps north of the starting point) as your first fight, you're ready to make some real money.

Making Money

Okay, so now you can smack the Fox boss around at level 1, right? Go ahead and do that, then head to the right. You'll find yourself in a desert-like area, in which your first goal is the northeast corner. You'll have to bolt across a few level 1222 and 1333 areas, so be careful, but once you get to the 777 area, you're in business.

The enemies here aren't too tough, and have relatively high gold drops. Fight a few enemies until you can win without trouble, then start putting all of your stat points into LUK. If you happen to notice any MONEY bonuses in the 1222 and 1333 areas, and are capable of winning fights there, hop down and take advantage. Once things get too easy for you in the 777, you can head due south to the 2222 area in the southeast corner of the map.

Mind the boss, you don't want to play with him until you're ready, but farm the zone the same way you did the 777 area. The enemies here also drop a fair chunk of change, but it's still worth it to head north for bonuses (especially the MONEY x7 bonus.) Once you're breezing through the enemies here, feel free to take on the boss whenever you like for the extra BP. If he doesn't give you any trouble, just keep shoving your stat points into LUK until you run out of BP. You should be able to afford some good gear. Once you're well-equipped, continue farming gold to open up your Accessory slots. You'll be wanting those ASAP, as you can use accessories to increase your XP gains as well as your LUK stat, which in turn will increase the gold-per-run.

When you first get rolling, keep that HP gem on your first accessory slot and fill whatever else you have open with EXP gems. Once you stop gaining any decent levels while farming (less than 200 or so per fight) in the 2222 area, you can feel free to change out your accessories for LUK gems if you have them.

What Gear to Get

Inflation RPG has abundant weapons, armor, and accessories to pick from and strive for, so to simplify the process a little bit, here is the best equipment to gun for and when.

Early Game (Money Farming Stage)

  • Weapon - Samurai Long Sword - Buy for 1,300,000 Gold. You can get enough cash in a single gold farming run if you get some good bonuses (see above.) If you can't swing this one, go for the Knight Sword, which costs 820,000 gold.
  • Armor - Knights Armor - Buy for 800,000. This is the one to get early on, period.
  • Accessories - HP Gem +3 - Buy for 580,000 Gold. With good gear and one of these, you'll be able to make the Fox Boss your first fight and save BP for later. Also, stockpile EXP gems. Make sure you have at least 3 EXP +2 gems which you can buy for 500,000 gold each.

Post-Farming Stage (After gold becomes useless because you have everything you can buy.)

Weapons -

  • Estoc - Drop from Female Knight, in the 24,900 area.
  • Green Light Sword - Drop from Green-Eyed Dragon boss, 27,200 area. That's in the Maze, by the way.

Armor -

  • Rare Armor - Drop from Chinese Dragon in 13,311 and 13,333 areas.
  • Crystal Cape - Drop from White Woman in 43,000 area (Heaven.)

Accessories -

  • EXP gems - Keep 'em, use 'em as long as you can. The 20,000 area boss drops the +4 and +5 versions (very rarely.)
  • Battle Point Rings - These increase BP while equipped. They can keep you rolling for extra levels and farming, so they're pretty crucial. A few can be bought in the store, but the good ones are boss drops. +4 drops from the 25,555, 36,000, and 37,777 bosses, and the +5 drops from the 36,000 and 37,000 bosses.
  • Recover Neckace - Drops from the Succubus in the ??? areas. If you're like me, you'll get this one while you're farming for gold. It allows you to regenerate 4% of the damage you deal as HP, and is probably the best accessory in the game.

Carrying On

Once you've got the best gear you can get your paws on, it's time to move on to bigger and better things. To proceed into more advanced areas, you'll want to head north, but more on that later when I do a proper walkthrough.

Hopefully, this little "getting started" guide will help new players get the ball rolling. Inflation RPG is a tricky, irregular, but all-around enjoyable and addictive game that I, personally, have had a hard time putting down since I discovered it.

The Author

Since this is a gaming hub, it seems like a good place to give a bit of information pertaining to my gaming. PS4 is my bread and butter, and I'm always happy to provide help and information on most games on that particular console.

If you enjoyed this and would like to see gameplay, ask questions, or anything of the sort you can check out my Twitch channel, or swing by Twitter and watch me not know how to use it.

      In my opinion the luc stat is useless cause I have had as much as 500000 luc and no enemy will drain anything and I think it’s stuck at about 2% drop rate pretty much, I think it’s best to do 50% attack 25% hp and 25% def in stat distribution and put some in agility if you wish later on

      I'm sure I'll expand the content as I can, but as you can imagine this game is particularly difficult to write a guide about.

      Nice guide, pretty good for getting started especially since there aren't many guides out there, also would love to see some info on how to climb the stages, which direction to go after certain levels, a map of the whole area, and also how the map changes(levels and all).

      My favorite RPG is Super Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars, but this one looks fun too. I don't really play the newer ones. :) Voted up, useful!
