So, I'm new here and I'm not sure if anyone still plays DWM2 (GBC) anymore. 

I'd been digging around for resources, but never really found a nice table that shows the stat gains each monster gets at each level without requiring a cross-reference of that monster's growth against a different table.  This was a huge hassle, so I took all the data and stuck it in a calculator.  I created a spreadsheet to help me more easily view a monster's stat potential at a glance.  It's already been helpful when trying to breed stats onto things, so I figured I'd share it.  

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xFjrKnEVCqPia0ijfIAC8l7_gijn0tVvdAQtRl4TfsI/edit?usp=sharing

::EDIT:: Updated calculator to also fetch skill information.

Instructions:  

  1. MAKE A COPY of the spreadsheet
    1. Note:  The RESET buttons use a macro and may not work anymore, but that's fine.
    2. Note:  There are protections on it.  I don't know if these copy with the sheet, so you may need to remove them to tweak things.
  2. Select a FAMILY from the top drop-down menu
  3. Select a NAME from the bottom drop-down menu
    1. This menu is automatically populated with the names of all monsters in the FAMILY you selected above.

I may add support for skills and breeding partners, but we'll see.  I'm also open to suggestions.

All that being said, along the way I found a bunch of other useful resources, and figured I'd share the links here as well...

Walkthrough (remember the good old days, when people wrote detailed guides like this?)

Magic Key FAQ

Magic Key Generation Rules

Skills Guide (Old)

Skills Guide (New)

Combination Skills (In Combat)

Competitive Skills Discussion (DWM1)

Breeding Database

Skill Inheritance

Taming Odds

Easy Money

GameFAQs List of FAQs

GameFAQs Board

NeoSeeker Board

 

That's all I've got for now.  Figured I'd share in case anyone else picks this game up and comes looking.

Incredible work! Give yourself a pat on the back, this is some impressive data compiling and it's been sorely lacking for an embarrassingly long time.

Thanks!  I'm glad people are actually seeing this (and so soon!).  If you have any resources that I don't, please let me know so I can continue to aggregate them.

I was thinking of working on breeding partners next, but does anyone know if the DWM1 calculator found here is 100% accurate for DWM2?

Not sure, I used the data from the guide, but I know that info wasn't wholly accurate

WELL THEN.  Guess the first "Last" key I got ended up being LastLord.  Is that normal, or am I incredibly lucky?  Took about 6 appraisals after getting my first 90+ monster.

The XP rate here is insane.  Makes me regret not leveling a faster 99 and getting it sooner.  Could've saved many hours of grinding.

I've updated the calculator to include skill information as well.  Might work on breeding next, but that part's gonna be hard.

Would you also happen to have the damage ranges for skills and combo abilities?

I don't.  :(

All the data I found was from other sources.  If you can find it, I'll add it to the calculator.

No worries!

This guide has the data for the original game, and I assume they are the same for the sibling's outing. One thing I know is wrong however, is that Boulder Toss/RockThrow is listed as 75~100 when it should be the standard 90~130. It does have the elemental listings right though, with a few deviations from the main games like gigaslash being it's own thing, lightning slash being a zap move, and big banga belonging to boom.

If I see any more details I'll post them here.

I'm hesitant to add skill data from the older game without properly testing it.  I'll keep it in mind for a potential later addition, but will likely work on breeding data first.

 

That said, work just got busy again so it may be a bit before further updates.  We'll see.  :)
