Sora

Starting Stats

Sora’s starting stats are determined at the beginning of the game.  During your visit to Dive to the Heart, you are asked to chose one weapon to keep and one weapon to give up.  Whatever combination of weapons you choose will determine Sora’s start stats, as well as his Ability tree for the rest of the game.  Each possible outcome is detailed below.

Keep Sword, Give Up Staff: 18 HP, 2 MP, 1 AP, 6 STR, 2 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories

Keep Sword, Give Up Shield: 18 HP, 2 MP, 3 AP, 6 STR, 1 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories

Keep Staff, Give Up Sword: 18 HP, 3 MP, 3 AP, 3 STR, 3 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories

Keep Staff, Give Up Shield: 18 HP, 3 MP, 3 AP, 5 STR, 1 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories

Keep Shield, Give Up Sword: 18 HP, 2 MP, 3 AP, 4 STR, 4 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories

Keep Shield, Give Up Staff: 18 HP, 2 MP, 1 AP, 5 STR, 4 DEF, 2 Items, 2 Accessories


Starting Equipment

Depending on which weapon (mentioned above) you choose to keep, Sora will start with that weapon for the duration of Dive to the Heart.  However, his starting Accessories and Stock Items are unaffected by this choice.  If the player chooses to play on Beginner difficulty, the game provides extra starting equipment to make the experience even easier than a playthrough selected on a higher difficulty.

Starting Weapon: Kingdom Key

Starting Equipment: EXP Necklace x1 (Beginner Mode Only), Ribbon x1 (Beginner Mode Only)

Starting Items: Power Up x8 (Beginner Mode Only), Defense Up x8 (Beginner Mode Only), AP Up x8 (Beginner Mode Only)

Starting Weapons

Other Party members start with their weapons already equipped.  Most characters (with the exception of Donald Duck and Goofy) cannot switch their weapons throughout the entire game. If a character is not listed below, it means that character does not use a weapon.

Donald Duck: Mage’s Staff

Goofy: Knight’s Shield

Tarzan: Spear

Aladdin: Sword

Peter Pan: Dagger


Starting Items

Party Members sometimes have Items already equipped in their Item Slots when they join your Party.  A good strategy while playing is to remove a character’s Items and add them to your Stock to increase your inventory.

Donald Duck: Potion x2

Goofy: Potion x3, Ether x1

Tarzan: Potion x3

Aladdin: Potion x4, Ether x2

Jack Skellington: Potion x1, Ether x2

Ariel: Potion x4, Elixir x2

Peter Pan: Potion x3, Ether x3

Beast: Potion x2, Hi-Potion x4, Ether x2


Starting Equipment

Some characters join your Party with Accessories already equipped.  As with Items, sometimes it’s best to remove these Accessories to equip them to more essential characters, like Sora, Donald, & Goofy.  If a character is not listed below, it means they do not join your Party with Accessories pre-equipped.

Aladdin: Protect Chain x1, Fire Ring x1

Jack Skellington: Protect Chain x1, Fire Ring x1

Ariel: Protect Chain x2, Thunder Ring x1

Peter Pan: Protect Chain x2
