Of course you want the dragon balls-everyone does. but there are some guidelines to them:
1. You cannot find a dragon ball without a dragon radar! They can be purchased at the shop!
2. You may not find more than one dragon ball at a time.
3. Dragon Balls can only be found on NAMEK and EARTH! There is no set of dragon balls in the otherworld or on Vegeta!
4. Once you find a dragon ball, no one else can find that one! If you are looking to get them all but someone already has one, your going to have to get it from them-brute force or negotiation, your choice!
5. There is no "stumbling upon" a dragon ball-you must have a radar!
6. You may only search for a dragon ball ONCE A WEEK!
7. Dragon Ball finding quests are NOT closed missions-anyone may join to try and stop you, as well as an NPC may be protecting one!
8. (for the namekian balls) You must Know Namekian to awaken Porunga from the balls!
9. Dragon balls CAN be searched for in groups, but remember: Shenron only grants ONE wish and Porunga only grants THREE!
10. Once the dragon balls are found, they scatter about and CANNOT BE FOUND FOR A MONTH!
Shenron is the earth dragon, and he is generally mild-tempered, and may threaten you if you take too long to make your wish!
-Only grants one wish, so choose carefully!
Porunga is the Namekian dragon, and he is very kindhearted and sympathetic. HE WILL NOT GRANT WISHES FOR SOMEONE WITH AN ALIGNMENT OF UNDER -3!
-Grants 3 wishes!
