To quote: In Destiny of Spirits, building powerful spirits and working cooperatively with other users will be the key to progress successfully in the game.
If you haven't heard of Destiny of Spirits yet, it is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game for the PlayStation Vita. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits.
Today, I'd like to talk about summoning, merging and renting supporter spirits as well as items that can be used to help maximize your game progress.
Spirit Points, Summoning Stones and Destiny Orbs
This world contains three types of magical substances to earn and collect: Spirit Points, Summoning Stones, and Destiny Orbs.
• Spirit Points are mainly used to merge and rent Spirits from other Spirit Masters around the world.
• Summoning Stones are mainly used to summon Spirits to add to your collection.
• Destiny Orbs are the most powerful magical substance in this world, and they aren't easy to come by. You can obtain powerful Spirits by using Destiny Orbs for Advanced Summoning and Limited-Time Summoning opportunities. They can also be used to restore the HP of your Spirits, bring defeated Spirits back into the battle, and control time.
If you feel your Spirit collection doesn't seem quite strong enough, try summoning a new Spirit! You can summon Spirits using Destiny Orbs and Summoning Stones and gather more allies. Summoned Spirits are added to your Spirit Collection and can be added to your party at any time.
You can merge Spirits to increase their experience points and level them up. First, select the Spirit that you want to enhance, then set the enhancer Spirits. You can select up to five enhancer Spirits.
Please note that enhancer Spirits are absorbed by the base Spirit and disappear, so please choose enhancer Spirits carefully. After the merge, your Spirit will level up and become stronger. Keep merging Spirits to make them even stronger!
Renting Supporter Spirits
A supporter is a Spirit that you borrow from another Spirit Master. By borrowing a supporter, you can bring a powerful Spirit into battle. And if that Spirit belongs to a friend, you can reap the benefits of the Spirit's support skill.
Closed Beta Test
We're excited to announce that there will be a closed beta test for Destiny of Spirits from October 24th until 31st. We'll be inviting a limited set of players to test and give feedback on the overall game experience in hopes to make Destiny of Spirits the best it can be!
We're very excited to share this new info with and we hope to see some of you during the Destiny of Spirits closed beta!
