|Steals treasure from enemies!|
What he steals is up to you!
- Inventory Info
The Red Castanets is an item which comes with the IAP, Sato's Quest Box. It is rewarded once the player completes the first part of the side story.
Red Castanets can be used to steal items from enemies, which opens up some new options and trivializes farming for most items currently in the game. This completely changes the item hunt once you have access to this tool.
However, not all enemies will unique items to steal. While most enemies have their respective materials available, bosses are noted to have the dungeon's exclusive equipment or a Rare Jade in their RC wheel. Bosses also carry an extra set of items at times, which could be assessed by reseeding. Inuberus and Samurai Slime are some examples of having a rare RC wheel.
Using the RCEdit
When used, a spinning ring of available items you can steal will appear.
You have 5 seconds to tap the screen to stop the spinning and collect one of the items.
A safe is sometimes an option which appears randomly in the RC wheel. This can happen to any monster. Selecting the safe opens a new wheel entirely consisting of 100 Gold and three 1000 Gold Bags.
When the hero is low on HP, a heart is often available among the ring of items. If selected, the enemy takes 30 damage and Yamada heals 30 HP. This is only an option when the Hero is directly next to the enemy (standing diagonally adjacent does not work).
RC combines exceptionally well with Pako for twice the thievery on high value targets.
On using once at the entrance of a floor, use Pako to reset the cooldown for a second use.This gives the RC another use before the end of the floor.
With Goemon/Thief setEdit
When fleeing as part of your strategy, consider using Goemon/Thief set.
With Prisoner SetEdit
Though not necessary, the Prisoner set's passive Stealmaster ability can be used to reduce the speed of the spinning wheel marginally.
Some materials used in evolution can be hard to come by with regular monster drops. The table below lists some of these materials which can be easily accessed with the Red Castanets.
