Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This patch rearranges which monsters drop which items significantly.

  • Early enemies drop more money now via chests to make early equipment sold by vendors actually affordable.
  • Monsters will now generally drop armor that is better than what you have.
  • The best equipment (top weapon orbs/top armor) drops more easily now.
  • The following armor has been deleted from the game: Cocatrice Cap, Amulet Helm, Guardian Ring, Dragon Ring, Watcher Ring, Imp’s Ring. There was no place to put them that didn’t make them too rare, or too powerful, or recur later at times when they’d be obsolete.
  • A typical playthrough should now result in acquiring nearly all pieces of the remaining armor at some point. You should miss very few pieces now. And they will be acquired at times that are useful rather than useless.
  • No items are permanently missable now. If you miss something, you can either get it in the Mana Fortress, or in an old level that is revisitable. Notably, the Griffin Helm and Faerie Cloak are easier to acquire in the Pure Land, but both can be gotten as rare drops in the Mana Fortress now.
  • Faerie Walnuts and other useful consumables will drop more often from more monsters now.

Specific details of changes and full rationale for them listed in the README.
