The Dolphin Necklace charm in Dave the Diver increases dash speed by 30%. Dash is a very useful ability and being able to dash faster is going to be very helpful especially when you need to get away from a challenging enemy. Chances are that you will dive too deep and encounter enemies that you are not able to take on. When that happens, the ability to dash away quickly is going to come in handy. You can get the Dolphin Necklace charm by completing the “Defeat Pirates” mission.
This charm allows you to use dash without using additional oxygen. The gauge will need to fill up before you can use the ability again. It is still a nice move to have.You can get the Octopus Bracelet by completing the “Strange Coral” mission.
Sea People Bracelet
Your oxygen is going to run out and when it does you will die and lose all your items. It is bound to happen unless you are very careful. This charm allows you to stay alive even when your oxygen tank is empty. It is not going to keep you alive forever but those additional few seconds can save your dive and the loot that you gathered. You can get the charm by completing the “Beyond the Rock Pile” mission.
Sea People Necklace
The Sea People Necklace in Dave the Diver allows you to travel through the tubeworm tunnels. Without this charm, you will need to use UV light or attacks to get through the tunnels. You can get the Sea People Necklace charm by completing “Deliver Key to Tenzhin”.
The Octopus Charm charm lets you dash without consuming oxygen. You will need to manage your oxygen effectively in order to make the most of each dive. Anything that helps you conserve oxygen is going to be very important. You can get this charm by completing the “Strange Coral” mission.
Shark Teeth Necklace
This charm increases the base damage of your harpoon gun by 15%. Your harpoon is the most useful weapon in the game. You can upgrade it for free by using this charm. To get the charm, you need to complete the “Revenge Time” mission.
Eco Poison Resist Bracelet
This charm will increase your resistance to poison. Status effects can be rather annoying but you can increase your resistance to poison simply by reaching level two at Bluehole Research & Protection.
Eco Health Bracelet
This charm will decrease the amount of damage that you receive. Increasing your survivability is going to be very important as you progress through the game. That is why we recommend getting this charm by reaching level three at Bluehole Research & Protection.
Eco Gemstone Bracelet
The Eco Gemstone Bracelet charm in Dave the Diver increases the amount of minerals that you get from mining. Since minerals are important you want to get as many of them as possible on each dive. You can get this charm by reaching level four at Bluehole Research & Protection.
