Always see alot of newbie who are lost on the term use by regular player or sometimes they just wanted to ask those common question and people dont seem to be responding to them. This corner is help people by compile those common question in a single thread. Credit to those who have answer these question to people who ask them. I just compile them. ;3
Disclaimer: Take the infomation with a pinch of salt.
1. Common Term Used in the Game
RNG = Random Number Generator
TK = Token; Its the ingame currency that you either obtain via quest/through paying real cash or filling up question-air
at the token shop
Swarm = Swarm is when you play a full, or close to full, field of followers so the enemy gets bombarded with multiple
attacks from followers with low sizes, meaning you lose little HP when they die off.
DP = Deck Point; Its the total value of card point for your deck
CP = Is the total card point in your collection; its viewable at the main window where you have your chat box
PT = It means points. Higher points in your card means its rarer. Example: common are 1pt while d.rare are 50pt
Grind = This mean people are doing the same thing non stop; Keep doing the same dungeon to obtain certain materials they need
2. What faction suits me? (for Starter decks)
Vita = The theme is school related; Their good point in their stamina and stalling
Academy = The theme is maid/high class ladies; Their good point in debuffing (weaken opponent)
Crux = The theme is knight/seeker; Their good point is buffing (strengthen you allies)
Darklore = The theme is gothic/vampires; Their good point is that they have unique spell and glass cannon follower

3. What is Auto Play and how do it join it?
Its under Arena > Auto. Most commonly people would just say "auto". You need to have at least 200 games before you
could join and the session start on 3 - 6am server time.
When enter into Auto, you will not able to practise, enter into "FIGHT" and going into the dungeon. The AI would play your
deck againts other player for 3 matches.Each Win would need net you 8 FIGHT materials and if you Lose you get 4
Min number of FIGHT materials obtain = 4 x 3 = 12 FIGHT materials
Max number of FIGHT materials obtain = 8 x 3 = 24 FIGHT materials
Add. note: FIGHT materials have 2 type (Season 1 and Season 2). To change what type you could get click on the option and change into the FIGHT materials that you wanted. Do note that the function only works on FIGHT mode and not in AUTO.
Add. note2: If you wanted to logout when AUTO have started, feel free too. You cant do anything while AUTO have started.
4. How do i get boss card?
To get boss card you need to clear the dungeon 10 times (This means fight and win the boss 10 times). Its a unique
character card that could cannot be craft or transform. You could always tramsute them for materials but I advice you
not too since its unique. You only get the boss card once.
5. What happen when I lose to an npc in the dungeon?
If you lost to npc in a dungeon you will drop by 1 floor of the dungeon.
Addition info: To know how long each dungeon is, before pressing it, its writen on the top right of each dungeon picture.
6. What happen when I lose to the boss of the dungeon?
If you want to retry to fight the boss again you need to pay token (ingame cash currency) to retry. If you do not want to
retry you be sent back to the 1st floor of the dungeon. Do take note that if you got disconnected during the fight
whether during boss fight or with normal npc the system consider you to lost the match.

7. What is premium select boosters?
Premium select boosters (bronze, silver, and gold) that you can buy at the end of dungeons are a bit like buying boosters
in the shop.
The bronze premium select is a random accessory.
Silver premium select is a card from the LATEST episode. You need to buy silver 1st before able to buy the gold premium.
Gold premium select is just like Silver but has a higher rate of getting rares and such.
8. I want to transform my character card. How do i do it?
ADVICE: DONT ATTEMPT IT UNLESS YOU HAVE SPARE MATERIALS. THIS PROESS IS MATERIAL INTENSIVE.
You need to feed card to your character at the cafe section. The transformation is base on the highest status when the
character reach to 100 likes. You could refer to what kind of transformation you be able to get through the swordgirl wikia or using http://swordgirls.info
The increase of status depend on each individual card id that you feed them.

Note: The link above may be old but it give you a general overview on how you should do it. Possible info above is not applicable due to changes within the game.
9. I wanted to reset my dungeon back to the lower level so that I could grind. How do i do it?
When you leave from the dungeon you notice you have a white tent icon. This mean you could leave from the game for 15 minutes before they reset back to the 1st floor. For permenent test which is yellow in colour they are premenent untill you resume them. Permenet test now does not required any Token.
Additional note: If you want to force your way back down, enter into the dungeon and click "lobby" on your lower right button to leave the dungeon. Repeat till reach the lowest floor you need. Do take note that this method will make your win rate drop since the system considers you to lose the dungeon match.
10. I cant seem to beat the boss. Please help?!
There are alot of topic being discuss in the Strategy Discussion section.
This link give you what you be getting by beating dungeon boss: http://www.swordgirlsonline.com/foru...ks-and-Rewards

If lost ask question in the relevant forum corner. Forum are treasure trove of informations.
11. I am bored when grinding. Entertain me!
Most people would multi task while playing swordgirls online. You could try listen to music to keep you going or simply watch movie while playing.
12. I am so angry that the system dont let me choose the way i want to play!
The system is build in such a way and this makes swordgirls online unique compare to the rest. Try to plan your deck
from relaying too often on the RNG. Sometime RNG goddess is a moody goddess. ;3

14. Is it just me or NPC break rules of having the card limit?
The NPC is dungeon contain deck that do not follow the player card limit. Meaning card like sacrifice which usually limited by 1 per deck to player, NPC could have 3 of them. So dont be surprise if you see them.
15. I lack certain "color" ore. How do i get more of them?
Each dungeon floor will give you ore in random colours. You could also sent your extra character card to gather few extra ore (required waiting time). Besides that some quest do give you ore.
You could also transmute in the LAB -> ALCHEMY -> ORE : 4 Ore into another Ore color (20 times by week or reset 10tk) It is advice to use white ore as you dont use much of them unless crafting character cards.
16. Where's Frontier Ruin's to get those ruins fragments?
If you did not notice at the normal dungeon section there is page 1/2 on the bottom left. Click 2/2 and your find it.
Most beginner never notice them. So remember there will be new page as more dungeon are added into the game.
17. Smart way to utilize ores to craft double rares
If you need Ore to craft D.Rare -> Use 1 color of your Ore in excess (not from your usual faction) -> when the D.Rare is crafted : transmute it back into ur faction : Transmute D.Rare from any faction (except Neutral) into others factions of the same episode (1 time per day)
For example : If you play Crux and need a Crux D.Rare : You could use the Red or Green or Black Ore (because you use only Blue Ore to craft Common, Uncommon and Rare Crux card).
You have only 100 Blue Ore, 500 Red Ore, 500 Green Ore and 1,000 Black Ore :You could craft a Darklore D.rare episode 1 (that you dont use), then transmute it into Crux D.Rare episode 1 that you want = this help you to reduce the Blue Ore usage and required less getting the colour ores that you need
Double rare transmute enable you to choose which faction from the same ep (exceptional SG faction) that you wish is to have.
Additional note: Seem that new EP that was release do not allow you to transmute to other factions until new EP is release. So dont be alarmed when the d.rare transmute dont show them. Remember stay calm ;3

18. What is the FIGHT bracket?
In case you have no idea what is a bracket, a bracket means the range of DP that each deck would meet up/pair up againt with each other in FIGHT (or known as PvP in other various games)
The known number of DP bracket know is as follow:
31 - 100DP
101 - 250DP
251 - Unlimited
Here are the known 3 bracket being talk about in the public chat. So if you deck is around 251DP and above, expect to meet deck that have high DP. If you want to avoid such incident stay below 250DP bracket. But its sure is fun beating deck that have high DP with low DP decks. ;3
Remember the most important thing is not the DP but synergy within your deck. It is known that a deck with good synergy could beat a randomly slap up deck that contain alot of d.rare cards.
Add. note: If you wait too long in FIGHT the system would pair you up with a npc. This means there is no one playing/waiting for opponent in the bracket that you're waiting for.
19. What happen when new dungeon is release?
"A Dungeon that hasn't been cleared before will have crossed swords instead of a single sword. Once you get to what would normally be the final floor, you have a 10% chance of encountering the boss, and if you do encounter the boss, then you don't get to retry. However, if you do beat the boss, you get their Character immediately without having to do it ten times." -Quote from Yenway-
A breakdown on what does the above means:
- New dungeon would have crossed swords icon on the dungeon selection section
- Its possible to encounter other player that is climbing the dungeon during those period
- Reaching the top floor, you have 10% chance of encountering the boss. Number of floor could be more that the usually number.
- There is no retry (Losing to the boss means going back to the lowest floor)
- Being the 1st to clear the dungeon, you would get the character card immediately (usually required 10 times/clear to obtain them)
20. Where do I go to get certain materials?
There is few method materials could be obtain which are from "DUNGEON", "FIGHT", and "AUTO". (there are many more method such as "LAB>EXCHANGE" or "LAB CAMPSITE", but that is not our current focus)
Each dungeon drop unique dungeon materials and the only method to get them is climbing those dungeons.
Cards are seperated based on SEASON and within it are episode (EP) related to each seasons. Currently we have 2 season and it is expected there would have new season/ep in the future.
Do note that the biggest difference in those 2 season are the unique materials obtain from FIGHT which are seperated into Season 1 materials and Season 2 materials.
You could change the materials obtain from FIGHT under OPTION >PvP Prize>(choose the Season that you want). Do not note that the OPTION function do not alter AUTO materials drop. It only affect FIGHT.
Colour ores besides white are randomly obtain in dungeons.
The following is a list on which dungeon drop what unique dungeon drop:
EP0: Beginner Dungeon - White Ore
EP1: Intermediate Dungeon - White Ore
EP1: Frontier Ruin - Ruins Fragments
EP2: Advanced Dungeon - White Ore
EP2: Witch's Tower, Shadowland - Stone Heart
EP3: Crux Training Camp - Holy Beast Tear
EX1: Bamboo Garden - Bamboo
EP4: Linia's Mansion - Lily
EP5: Vampire Mansion, Goddess Tower - Blood Pack
EP6: Vita Public School - Seal of Approval
EX2: Vivid World, Dream Island -Spiral Fragment
EP7: Catacomb - Aletheian Brick
EP8: Ancient Sanctuary - Pass
EP9: 2S Detective Agency - Receipt
EX3: Catch that Cat!, Linia's World - Cat Paw Stamp
EP10: Underground Library - Library Card
EP11: Underground Altar - Mystery Parchment
EP12: Royle City - Police Notebook
FIGHT materials based on Seasons
Season 1: Sword, Glasses, Shoes, Stocking, Ribbon, Cat Doll, Book
Season 2: Dagger, Panda Doll, Playing Cards, Gloves, Perfume, Lipstick, Pendant

I think it would be a little better if you put some more effort into the mechanics of the writing in your guide.

"Hard dungeons" give more random Ores than others dungeons but u need good decks.
If u need Ore to craft D.Rare -> use 1 color of ur Ore in excess (not for ur faction) -> when the D.Rare is crafted : transmute it back into ur faction : u can transmute D.Rare from any faction (excepted Neutral) into others factions of the same episode (1 time by day or week)
For example : i play Crux and need a Crux D.Rare : i will use the Red or Green or Black Ore i got the most (because i use only Blue Ore to craft Common, Uncommon and Rare Crux card).
I got only 100 Blue Ore, 500 Red Ore, 500 Green Ore and 1,000 Black Ore : i will then craft a Darklore D.rare episode 6 (that i don't need), then transmute it into Crux D.Rare episode 6 that i want = i saved my Blue Ore and didn't needed to farm more of them !
