Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

Riufan Recruitment Guide

Jarrod Garripoli

You will run into many different characters in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, some of which will join your army. Some will be found earlier than normal and you’ll have to wait until you meet specific conditions first. One of these will be Riufan, a character you can meet for the first time in Hishahn. You must meet his requirements, then defeat him in combat to recruit him.

Get Nowa to level 32, then speak to Riufan in Hishahn to get started on recruiting him.

Riufan Location

You will be able to find Riufan when you first arrive in Hishahn, in the Euchrisse region. He can be found on some docks to the left of the inn, but it’s highly likely that when you first reach the town, he will shoot you down. He basically tells you to come back when you’re stronger, but the only thing you really need to do is be level 32. Once you’ve achieved that level threshold (you can go higher if you want), speak to Riufan again and he will challenge you to a one-on-one battle.

Riufan Fight Strategy

As mentioned above, you will be doing this battle one-on-one with just Nowa, so make sure you are up-to-date with the best armor you can get at that point. You will probably also want to make sure your weapon is fully upgraded. At the point of just reaching Hishahn, you can upgrade it to level 6. The last thing you will want is a decent supply of Quality Healing Herbs (only really need five, at the most, depending on his damage).

(1 of 3) Blocking can help reduce the damage done by Riufan.

With the best defensive equipment, at level 32, Riufan should be doing around 80 damage or so with his attack. He only seems to a normal attack, though, and he can crit, so leave a little wiggle room for that. You should really only use Swinging Slash for your offense, which requires two SP. If you feel the need to guard, then do that to cut down on some of the damage done to Nowa. Overall, Riufan seems to have around 300 HP, so it should only take two or three Swinging Slashes to bring him to his knees.

Once you have defeated Riufan, he will agree to join your army! With him in tow, you will now be able to try and recruit Lam, another martial artist character.
