10 Tips You Should Know




Dark Alliance Beginner Guide & New Player Help

Character Info

Which is the best character in Dark Alliance?

There is no "best character", as they all have their different strengths and weaknesses. It is also important to note that YOUR playstyle may be the defining factor in which character is best to for you. Each of the four characters respond to a certain archetype within the party, like for example Bruenor Battlehammer being the Tank. This means that Bruenor is an up-close and personal type of character, that is designed to taunt Enemies and withstand their ferocious attacks.

Can I change my Race or Class?

No. The four characters available in Dark Alliance are fixed characters, meaning that you can't change the Race nor the class. Gender and physical appearance can't be changed.

Equipment & Loot Information

Looting during Quests

During Quests you are unable to change your gear, you have to wait until the end of it and you are transported to the central HUD, to be able to do so.

Upgrading Equipment

Weapons can be upgraded from level 1 up to level 3. You have to use different types of Crystals and gold_icon_dark_alliance_wiki_guide_25pxGold. 

Can I switch Weapons?

Each character uses their respective signature Weapon. Take Cattie-Brie for example. She uses a Bow and that's the type of Weapon she can wield. You can't have her use a Scimitar like Drizzt or an Axe like Bruneor.

      I have to disaree to the answer to your first question. Bruenor has to be the weakest and most difficult to start with. He's slow, all his beginning attacks are sluggish and do complete crap damage. I only played him til level 7, but switching from him to Catti or Drizzt is like turning on easy mode.
