PADherder is a poorly named web application built to ease the burden of managing your collection of Puzzle & Dragons monsters. Track what monsters you own, what levels they are, what evolution materials they need to evolve, and various other things. The idea is nothing new - there is a quite capable Google Docs spreadsheet freely available that I shamelessly stole the idea from. The goal of PADherder is to expand upon the concept while being both faster and easier to work with.
The filters control which monsters are visible, they're not much use without a monster. Let's add one! Click 'Add monster' and a form will appear:
It should be fairly obvious what most of these do. Choose the monster in whichever way suits you (the magical search box is easiest if you can never remember the rest of Horus' name), pick a Priority level that seems suitable, then pick the Current Level. Add a Note if you'd like to keep a note about it (e.g. "I C E G O L E M"). Press 'Add monster' and it should magically appear in the table like so:
Level is the current level of the monster while Target is the target level (this doesn't have to be the maximum level of the monster). Skill is the current level of the monster's skill. HP/ATK/RCV are counts of the number of pluses on the monster. XP is the current XP of the monster, it also has a fancy tooltip showing the Target and Remaining XP. Pengdra is a count of the number of Pengdra required to hit the Target level, it also has a tooltip showing the required number of various other forms of common XP fodder. Evolution contains "next form materials", the background will be green if you have those materials and red if you don't. The icons are: edit monster, evolve monster, and delete monster.
Let's edit our Agdrall by clicking the edit icon or double clicking in any cell:
A form has magically appeared, you can use it to change things about the monster. The two new icons are: save changes, and undo changes. You can also save by pressing Enter on any form field or undo by pressing Esc.
When your monster is ready to evolve, hit to evolve it and it will progress to the next stage:
Easy, visit My Materials and you'll get something like this:
Simply enter how many of each material you have in the boxes and press 'Save changes'. When you evolve a monster you are given the option to 'Consume materials' - this will remove the consumed materials from your My Materials page for yoy.
My Sets is a collector's worst nightmare: a single place that shows which of each 'set' of monsters that you own.
My Teams is a way to create and share teams using the actual stats of your owned monsters, it should be fairly easy to understand how it works.
