This section of the guide to Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot focuses on the character progression system. You will learn how to develop your character and where to get development points. Z Warriors (Goku, Piccolo, Tien, Yamcha, Krillin, and later Vegeta) can develop in various ways, which we have described below.
Combat is the main activity in the game. You gain experience by winning fights. If your character gains a new level, they increase their statistics: HP, Ki, ATK / Ki ATK (strength of physical attacks, special techniques), Melee DEF / Ki DEF (protection from physical attacks and special attacks). Thanks to the game's open world structure, enemies can be easily found on the world map. If we want to, we can spend some time on the so-called grinding - killing opponents to strengthen our character to face a difficult enemy.
Cooking and food
Our heroes are fighting a real invasion of enemies, so it is not surprising that they have a huge appetite. You can buy different dishes, cook food on the fire (you can fish!), or ask Chi-Chi to cook a delicious meal. In addition to a temporary stat boost, you will receive permanent bonuses for your character.
Collecting Z Orbs
You will very quickly come across orbs with the letter Z. They are the so-called Z Orbs you need to unlock new techniques. These orbs are in different places, and their color often coincides with the territory (green balls in forest areas, blue found underwater, etc.). Different techniques require different numbers of orbs, so remember about collecting them while you are exploring the world.
Training areas are found in various locations. To use them, you need D medals, special items that are hidden in different parts of the world. You train by fighting spiritual projection of a given enemy - it is possible to duel with yourself (Goku vs Goku, etc.), or fight with already defeated enemies.
The last way to develop a character is to use the so-called Community Board. As you progress through the main story or complete missions, you receive emblems. These soul emblems can be placed on community boards, which will give access to new techniques, or unlock passive skills. There are seven different community boards, each offering different bonuses - a lot also depends on the placed emblems because it is possible to create a unique connection between tokens which activate all sorts of link bonuses.
