One Piece Odyssey Cheats and Tips
- Pay attention to dialogue: While running around maps, notice sudden realizations from your party. Robin, Nami, and Sanji all have passive that allow them to detect if there’s something they can pick up. Sanji picks up food ingredients for cooking. Meanwhile, Nami can detect lots of raw cash on the floor, and Robin can find archaeology pieces. Alternatively, you can play as them, making finding those features much easier. Nami and Sanji’s passive unlock sometime in chapter 2 main story, and Robin some time in Chapter 4’s main story.
- Come back later: The game naturally wants to you explore areas much later on in the game’s storyline. You will get more side quests, bounty missions, and unlock memory links mainly when you finish the Memoria chapters.
- Don’t stray too far from the main story mission: The game will restrict where you can and cannot go in the early chapters. The result is you will likely be teleported facing the directions you should go to. It’s very easy to lose time, so enjoy the main story until the game lets you do your own thing, typically around the start of Chapter 3.
- Fast Travel: Partway through Chapter 2, you will unlock the fast travel feature. When you complete a Memoria Chapter, you will unlock all signposts in that Memoria, meaning you are free to explore as you wish.
- Look for grapple points and Chopper holes: Most areas of the map have something for Luffy to grapple to, or Chopper to crawl into. These tend to hide important items like Cubes, which empower various characters. Or they hide chests, which can grant nice gold rewards, or random items for consuming food, creating food, trick balls, or accessory items.
- Swap your Cubes around on character like Sanji, Robin and Usopp: Cubes can be swapped around freely. It allows you to empower certain moves before combat. But, this is important for crafting too. When you unlock further improved crafting features, put your cubes into those stats while you’re in Camp, as it means you can temporarily make better crafts, without permanently leaving Cubes in those slots. Craft the good stuff while you’re in camp, and then swap them back to abilities when you’re done.
- Use Trick Balls on boss-type enemies: Most of the combat in the game isn’t too difficult. However, when the occasional mini and boss battle come along, the difficulty ramps up. Taking your time to sync your bond moves, or heavy-hitting skills during windows you have lowered an enemy defense stat is a great use of items and skills. You can also lower the attack value with Trick Balls to create a window to heal your character and gain pace back.
