Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot may not be as complex as some of the best Japanese role-playing games out there, but it still comes with its fair share of mechanics that need to be understood to improve characters and learn new skills. One of these mechanics are the Community Boards mechanics.
Here’s everything you need to know about one of the central mechanics in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.
What Are Community Boards in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot?
Community Boards in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot are special boards that are used to improve stats and activate some very useful Community Skills. Each of the seven boards available in the game focuses on specific stats, allowing you to customize your characters in different ways depending on the number of Soul Emblems currently in your possession.
The seven Community Boards in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot are detailed in the table below.
|Z Warrior Community||Increases ATK and Support Gauge|
|Cooking Community||Increases Meal Success, Boost, and Duration|
|Training Community||Increases EXP and DEF|
|Development Community||Increases Machine Level & Build Success, and reduces Zeni cost|
|Community of the Gods||Increases obtained Items and Z Orbs|
|Adult Community||Increases Frenzy Chance and item selling price, reduces item costs|
|Adventure Community||Increases HP, Ki, and recovery items effects|
How to Activate Bonuses
Each Community Board comes with a central character that is considered the board’s leader, and thus cannot be moved. To enjoy some nice Link Bonuses, which increase the Community Level, you will have to link characters on the board by placing Soul Emblems of characters that have some sort of relationship close to one another. By doing so you can also unlock a special cutscene involving the linked characters.
To enjoy some more bonuses, you should also try to increase the proficiency level of Soul Emblems. This is achieved by giving gifts to the corresponding character. With increased proficiency, it will be easier to increase the Community Level and activate more skills, allowing you to take on even more powerful opponents!
