QUIT: This will close the game completely.

You will be missed when you go, – well not by the Spirits.
* But you should take a break every now and then for health reasons.

Divinity Web

You pressed START and are now looking at the Divinity Web.

Here you will find Two options and the Divinity Web:

START RUN: Selecting this will open the Character Select Screen.
ORACLE: Selecting this will have the Oracle give you some wisdom.

* Who is the Oracle?
— The figure on the left side of the Talent Web. (everything else is a mystery)

DIVINITY WEB: This is where all the things you can unlock reside.

Your goal should be to unlock everything.
* As you do you will become more powerful (think of it like leveling up).

— TIP 01 – A good strategy is to unlock the pet system as soon as possible.
—- (Pets can hugely change the outcome of your hunting, unlock them all)

— TIP 02 – Another good strategy is to unlock all the weapons.
—- (The more weapons you have the more options you will have when hunting)
—- (Just like weapons, unlocking all the Heroes will also give you more hunting options)

— TIP 03 – Another good strategy is to unlock Leveling Skills.
—- (Any skill that increases your Experience Points or Resource Currency)
—- (Things like, Loot Magnet, Increase Soul Drop Rate, Mine and Chest Speed Increase)

Leveling Up

UNLOCKING ALL THE THINGS: Heros, Skills, and Weapons Oh My!

As you start unlocking the Divinity Web and moving your way out you will notice a few things..

— Pay attention to them so you know what to focus on, on your next hunt.

RESOURCES: Hearts, Gold, Souls, Runes, Crystals and More.

HEARTS
* Little Red Hearts (They give you health)

GOLD

CRATES, CAGES, CHESTS AND MINES Open them all.

You should be actively looking for these and opening them when every you area able to.
* They will be scattered all over the map
— To open a crate all you need to do it smash it.
— To open a Cage, Chest or Mine Node all you need to stand near it for a certain amount of time
—- You will notice a circle being created on the ground (Once completed the item will open)
—- If you step out of the circle while it is being summoned it will start to desummon

MINI BOSSES: Not good enough to make the cut as a normal boss.

Don’t let that fool you though some of them have an extra surprise for you
* They come in all shapes and sizes, have different movement patterns and health.
— Its not uncommon for multiple Mini bosses to be on the screen at the same time
— After you put them to rest they will drop a purple spirit chest (make sure you open it)
—- Most of them drop all the things (in hard mode even more things)

BOSSES The baddest Spirits of them all

Kill them or be killed, these are the only two options then the timer clocks 15 minutes
* At 15 minutes a Spike Cage Arena will pop up and you will face the Final Spirit of your hunt.
— They come in all shapes and sizes, have different movement patterns and health (and surprises).
— While you are battling the Spike Cage Arena will slowly start to get smaller
