Forum:Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ and this wiki
So the NA Unchained χ will be released tomorrow and our information on this game is still kinda non-existent (at least gameplay-wise) since it was released in Japan seven months ago. I know this is mostly the case because nobody here plays the Japanese version, but the questions is, will this change with the arrival of the English version? I'm asking because we actually got a competitor on this very topic half a year ago that moved on an independent (KH13.com affiliated) site yesterday: http://www.khunchainedx.com/wiki/Kingdom_Hearts_Unchained_χ_Wiki
If nobody here picks this game up we could simply collaborate, I'm not sure how the guys (or more precisely one awesome girl) over there see this, but maybe we should talk about it. I know there a dozen of things worked on at the moment and Unchained is not really top priority but maybe it should be because it will bring in new editors.
To get up-to-date on Unchained the following things have to be organized:
Check the pages with the translation template, most of these can be adjusted beginning with tomorrow.
Obviously this is the most important one. The stats and ability of every medal have to be cataloged somehow.
As with 358/2 Days Unchained's story mode consists of short missions that play usually only in 1-3 rooms of the worlds. Every mission has three challenges which give additional rewards. There are also special daily missions, weekly missions, permanent challenges and of course event missions that come with limited rewards and special Heartless.
Besides level, name, type and Lux drop the game won't provide exact information on the Heartless stats, I'm not sure if they can be gathered. The Raid Bosses behave differently in Unchained, so their page has to be adjusted for this version.
Unchained not only features almost all costumes from the original [chi] but also Avatar Boards which behave somewhat like the Stat Matrix in Re:coded except that you just unlock stats with Avatar Coins. There is an Avatar Board for almost every costume/hairstyle (male + female) in the game with 8-15 panels each, that's an insane number, I'm not sure how to handle these at the moment. The costumes itself were divided into single parts around two years ago in [chi], the same time I stopped updating the page, so there is a lot to cover here too and I have the information ready, I'm just unsure how it implement it at the moment. On top of that the player can use a title that consists of two phrases which are unlocked by completing Avatar Boards, logging in a number of days, by completing difficult challenges or won in rankings etc. That's a long list too.
These are basically just matches in different rounds that reset every month or so. Every "season" the rewards change (usually special Coliseum Boards and ranking rewards), so the information about the matches basically becomes useless.
It doesn't look too bad on this front. The story sections have to be trimmed and summarized and in some cases added.
Unchained only features the base, second and forth Keyblade upgrade of [chi], as of now level 25 seems to be the max. The stats work still very different so we'd need a new template, the recipes are different too.
Unchained uses the same synthesis items as [chi], so all good here except in most cases we don't have pages for these items yet.
Well, collaborating with the girl user would be a great idea. Ideally, though, would it be possible to, perhaps, suggest that the user joins our wiki instead? It seems kind of redundant to have two wikis reporting on the same game.--NinjaSheik 22:00, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
I know I'm a new member here, but might I suggest we split the Foreteller pages now that we know their name? I'm willing to offer help on at least the story segment of KHUx. Hallowseve97 (talk) 16:12, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
There are several types of special missions
These only open up at the specific day or when you cash out to unlock them all at once. These are the EXP Medals: Power/Speed/Magic, the Evolve medals: Power/Speed/Magic, the 1-3/4-5 Star Evolve medals and the different Keyblade material + the Mythril Madness missions. They are incredibly useful for your deck progression and can be repeated as often as you want. The Japanese version also features Adamant missions (to upgrade Keyblades past level 20) that stay open the whole week but change at the end of it. Additionally there are also premium missions that only open up when you buy jewels and stay open until Sunday midnight (not implemented in the NA version yet). Completed challenges stay the same for these missions, these quests never changes.
There is the munny quest which opens up during three random times a day for twenty minutes, the challenges of this quest stay completed, and the daily jewel challenge which can only be found in the Japanese version at the moment. They are a way to farm jewels each day by completing the three challenges of three missions. The missions and their challenges rotate, I think it's only five mission with different challenges but the enemies and attributes can change (meaning it's acutally 15 missions). It would be possible to record them all.
These are the three permanent proud quests and eventually timed event missions. The timed event missions will often come with their own Avatar Boards and these can't be re-accessed later. There are also premium Avatar Boards that will only be purchasable for a limited time, but will stay in your inventory once you got them. I still have screenshots of every Japanese event mission, if that's of any use. --ShardofTruth 12:32, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
Greetings from the KHUX Wiki! My intent is to catalog both the English and Japanese versions of the game (many international players don't want to start over from square one after so much time invested, and the Japanese version just got an update on Thursday as well), but obviously that takes up a good chunk of time, so I'd be super excited to have your manpower to help get everything more fleshed out over there.
I started the Wiki fairly soon after the Japanese game launched because I got tired of having to answer the same questions about mission challenges and which medal was better, so it's largely a medal and mission catalog now--mostly because by the time I started it, I'd already missed out on screencapping early game things like Avatar Boards I'd already completed, which Title Banners were awarded when, early Keyblade stats etc. (and to be frank, nobody was asking me those questions every day, so they fell quite low on my priority list lol)
I wouldn't mind the porting option (to keep the KHUX wiki specialized), and I'd be excited to affiliate with you as well! Since we're only on Day 2 of the English version and all of the medals' stats have remained the same, we can focus our collective efforts on other areas like making it look nicer than I can manage (I'm pretty amateur when it comes to wiki design) grabbing screenshots of the English mission requirements, details on the first month's Coliseum and getting organized in anticipation of the first in-game event.

Hello there. KH13.com and our affiliated wiki would like to invite you guys over to our Wiki forum http://kh13.com/forum/forum/89-kingdom-hearts-unchained-%CF%87-wiki/ to discuss working together. We would love to plan and organize how we can work together and accomplish our goals Lea (talk) 00:56, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
We'll aim to cover all of KHX and KHXBC too eventually, since it's so intertwined with KHUX, but we're giving the major focus to KHUX right now. Of course you guys can keep all the general stuff and whatever you want here. There is an official planning topic on our wiki forum we would love for you guys to congregate to and we can further our discussion and plans there. http://kh13.com/forum/topic/96070-official-wiki-planning-discussion-thread/Lea (talk) 13:53, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Ads keep the KHWiki independent and free :)
