# D-Ratio (Dragon Quarter)

Within the world of Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, every person is assigned a D-Ratio. This indicates their chances of linking with any available Dragon, and is also indicative of their social status. "Low-D"'s are at the lowest end of the pecking order, while Dragon Quarters are the most respected. Members of Trinity have their D-Ratios removed, although how this is achieved is not specified.

## [edit] Range

D-Ratios range from 1/4 (the aforementioned Dragon Quarter) to 1/8192, as Ryu begins the game. The full range of D-Ratios shown within the game are as follows;

- 1/4
- 1/8
- 1/16
- 1/32
- 1/64
- 1/128
- 1/256
- 1/512
- 1/1024
- 1/2048
- 1/4096
- 1/8192

The only other character with a noted D-Ratio is Bosch at 1/64.

## [edit] D-Ratios within the Game

Within the game, Ryu's D-Ratio can be lowered with subsequent playthroughs. Although this makes no difference to the plot - Bosch will still comment on Ryu's Low-D even when it is higher than his own - it does unlock more areas for the player to explore.

When starting a new game plus, the new D-Ratio is determined by how many points the player has earned in a number of criteria. These are as follows;

Clear Time | Points |

8 | 10 points |

9 | 9 points |

10 | 8 points |

11 | 7 points |

13 | 6 points |

15 | 5 points |

27 | 4 points |

20 | 3 points |

23 | 2 points |

26 | 1 points |

26+ | 0 points |

Simply put, the amount of time taken to clear the game completely.

Extra Turn Percentage | Points |

95% | 10 points |

90%+ | 9 points |

85%+ | 8 points |

80%+ | 7 points |

75%+ | 6 points |

70%+ | 5 points |

65%+ | 4 points |

60%+ | 3 points |

55%+ | 2 points |

50%+ | 1 points |

50%- | 0 points |

This reflects the number of random encounters that are begun by your characters attacking the monsters, rather than vice-versa. With a little practice and good use of the PETS system, you can easily get a high ranking here.

Map Completion Percentage | Points |

98%+ | 10 points |

96%+ | 9 points |

94%+ | 8 points |

92%+ | 7 points |

90%+ | 6 points |

88%+ | 5 points |

86%+ | 4 points |

84%+ | 3 points |

82%+ | 2 points |

80%+ | 1 points |

80%- | 0 points |

It is impossible to complete over 98% of the map in your first playthrough, simply because some areas are not unlocked without a lowered D-Ratio.

To fill in part of the map, it is sufficient simply to open the relevant (usually yellow) door.

Treasure Boxes Opened | Points |

42+ | 10 points |

39+ | 9 points |

36+ | 8 points |

33+ | 7 points |

30+ | 6 points |

25+ | 5 points |

20+ | 4 points |

15+ | 3 points |

10+ | 2 points |

5+ | 1 points |

4- | 0 points |

The number of treasure boxes opened by your party. Again, this is easier on a subsequent playthrough, since the new areas tend to contain several treasure boxes.

Number of Saves | Points |

0 | 10 points |

1 | 9 points |

2 | 8 points |

3 | 7 points |

4-5 | 6 points |

6-7 | 5 points |

8-9 | 4 points |

10-11 | 3 points |

12-13 | 2 points |

14-15 | 1 points |

16+ | 0 points |

When it comes to saving, less is better.

Of course, it helps to have a lot of time free, and be reasonably confident in your abilities.

Floor Reached | Points |

B50F | 10 points |

B46F+ | 9 points |

B41F+ | 8 points |

B36F+ | 7 points |

B31F+ | 6 points |

B26F+ | 5 points |

B21F+ | 4 points |

B16F+ | 3 points |

B11F+ | 2 points |

B6F+ | 1 points |

B5F- | 0 points |

The highest (or, technically, lowest) floor reached in the bonus dungeon the Kokan Horay. The dungeon can be unlocked through the Fairy Colony mini-game.

**Average Level**

In addition to the above, the average level of your party is added to your total number of points.

**Total Score**

Your total score results in a D-Ratio as follows;

Points | D-Ratio |

100 points | 1/4 |

95+ points | 1/8 |

90+ points | 1/16 |

85+ points | 1/32 |

80+ points | 1/64 |

75+ points | 1/128 |

70+ points | 1/256 |

65+ points | 1/512 |

60+ points | 1/1024 |

55+ points | 1/2048 |

50+ points | 1/4096 |

50- points | 1/8192 |
