Details of the gameplay
The map is inspired by RPG adventures like Zelda or Secret Of Mana with loot systems like Diablo or Borderlands.
You need to complete quests, fight monsters and bosses in a lot of dungeons that get bigger and bigger!
The game is focused on PvE (PvP isn’t available) and also provided with events like puzzle, platforms, enigma, etc…
A unique development system supports players trough the experience gained and a well developed economy allows players to buy, to sell, to exchange in different shops.
You can do this adventure alone or with friends, but it’s advisable to be no more than 3 players play the map.
The map is semi-open world: large zones and regions were created to allow players freedom, but will be partly driven by the main quest.
Of course, a dozen of secondary quests is waiting to extend the life of the game.
Finally, you need between 20 and 30 hours of play to defeat the map.
Fight Monster and Elites
In some free zones, monsters regularly spawn, you can increase your power to fight against these monsters.
Each monster has it's own special capacity (different speed, increased life, increased strength etc...) and is obviously equipped with a wide variety of armour and weapons.
You can fight with sword, bow with more and more powerful enchantments, but also with spells.
You gain one bonus heart after each death of a boss.
So, you can cast spells through books. They will unlock according to the progression of the player. The magical gauge is called Dahäl and is evolutive.
To launch a spell, you just need to open the book and click on the name of the spell inside the book!
Farming, Loot and Items
There are various kinds of weapons and armor classified according to their powers and rarities: Sacred, Legendary, Sets, Magic or Normal!
Do not forget, each item is useful, indeed they can be for most sold on the black market.
It is possible and sometimes necessary if you want to improve you and loot the many legendary items owned by the enemy!
The number of monsters you'll face will always be more important and difficult depending on your progress! That is why you need to equip yourself and loot.
Know that monsters, bosses and elites have a small chance to dropped powerful items, so do not lose hope. Some Elites are unique but some dungeon bosses can be farmed!
Elites and some secrets also drop a rare currency: "Ecaille Souveraine du Chaos". It used to buy you a type of very powerful items: the Sacred items.
