Dress Up! Time Princess is a super fun game, but the crafting system can be a grind. This blog post covers Gift crafting, which you’ll need to optimize to level up your companions’ Goodwill. TL;DR – you’re gonna need a lot of Plant, Metal, and Arcane Essence.
The first thing you need to know is all companions are not created equal. Some require more Goodwill to level up and some require less. Here is how their levels are currently set (per the DUTP wiki):
Character Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6 Level 7 Total Lafayette
24 510 1210 2370 4140 6660 10640 25554 Louis XIV
20 400 960 1870 3280 5280 8430 20240 Gabrielle
20 320 760 1480 2590 4170 6650 15990 d’Eon
20 260 610 1190 2070 3330 5320 12800
There are two ways to level up Goodwill – interactions (aka tapping on them) and gifts. You can interact up to 5 times a day with each character, and each interaction gives you 10 Goodwill points. You can give up to 16 gifts a day to each character, and each gift gives you anywhere from 10-90 Goodwill points. Obviously, you’ll want to craft the gift for each character that gives you the maximum 90 Goodwill points, and those are the 3-star gifts. To make it easy for you, here’s the list of all the 3-star gifts you’ll need to craft for each companion.
Ok, so if you’re going to farm gift crafting material, where should you start? Let’s simplify the math by ignoring the potential Goodwill gained from interactions and focusing only on gifts. We’ll also stop at Level 7 Goodwill because that’s the highest required for any of the stories (though that might change as the game matures).
Total Points Required Total 3-Star Gifts Required Lafayette 25554 283.9333333 Fersen 25554 283.9333333 Light 25554 283.9333333 Davis 25554 283.9333333 Charlotte 25554 283.9333333 Aldous 25554 283.9333333 Louis XIV 20240 224.8888889 Kahir 20240 224.8888889 Vittorio 20240 224.8888889 Audwin 20240 224.8888889 Gabrielle 15990 177.6666667 Chapur 15990 177.6666667 Sinbad 15990 177.6666667 Diane 15990 177.6666667 d’Eon 12800 142.2222222 Blaisdell 12800 142.2222222 Scheherazade 12800 142.2222222 Kane 12800 142.2222222
The most “expensive” companions will require 283-ish gifts to get to Level 7 while the “cheapest” companions will only require 142 gifts to get to Level 7. Each gift requires two ingredients. Thus we can use that information to calculate how much of each ingredient we will need to get every character up to Level 7:
Ingredient # Required Plant 1029.97 Metal 970.42 Arcane Essence 959.16 Spices 792.75 Glass 734.22 Gemstone 733.71 Fabric 567.86 Medicine 461.6 Wood 319.89 Water 284.44 Fruit 283.93 Seasoning 224.89 Dye 224.89 Paper 177.67
However, if you’re looking to progress through the Storybooks in order, you might want to focus on one set of characters first. For example, if you want to do Queen Marie to completion before moving onto another Storybook, then you’ll need to know which materials to farm first specifically for Queen Marie:
|Queen Marie Material||# Required|
|Magic Lamp Material||# Required|
|Gotham Memoirs Material||# Required|
|Swan Lake Material||# Required|
Hope that is helpful! Remember, the numbers here EXCLUDE any Goodwill you might get from daily interactions. So, don’t go farming EXACTLY 603 Arcane Essence for Queen Marie – the information is just meant to be directional. So if you have some spare coins to spend in Parven’s Shop, you’ll want to prioritize Arcane Essence. Does that make sense? Hope so :)
