A quick guide on how to summon Shenron in Dragon Ball FighterZ. It could help you turn a match!
One of the most unique mechanics in Dragon Ball FighterZ is the ability to have Shenron help you turn the tables in a close fight, and much like in the show, it revolves around the dragon balls.
Dragon balls can be acquired in one of two ways by other players so you don’t have to build an individual stock, and both ways require you to perform combos. Depending on the number of hits in your combo, you’ll be rewarded with X amount of dragon balls. The dragon ball number you get corresponds to the ‘tens’ digit in your combo. For example, you can grab DB #7 with a 70+ hit combo, #6 with a 60-69 hit combo, and so on and so forth.
If you’re having problems landing the big ticket money, never fear. You can also use the full light attack auto combo, which will grant you a dragon ball at random. While this will prevent you from choosing which you get specifically, it’s a good backup option if you aren’t feeling confident in your combos.
The final piece of the puzzle is to build seven bars of super meter. If all dragon balls are on the board, regardless of who originally earned them, the next auto light attack combo will summon the man himself and grant you one of four wishes.
“Restore My Health!” – Brings your current character to full HP
“Make Me Immortal!” – Heals all regenerating health for your entire team and adds a restore function to your super meter, which fills it automatically
“Bring Back My Ally!” – Revives a team member with 20% of their HP
“Give Me The Ultimate Power!” – Adds a second charge to your Sparking Blast and fills your ki gauge to max
Think of Shenron as a tool and not a goal. If the opportunity arises where you’re able to summon him without putting yourself at any great risk, go for it. Keep in mind, however, that Shenron isn’t an auto win, but if you play it smart and know when to pull the trigger, the dragon might just save your ass.
