Looking at the graph above clearly tells us one thing, upgrades require an absurd amount of Mora. Meanwhile, the process of upgrading a character is divided into two sections, talents and character levels.
You can level up characters which will increase their stats, and you can upgrade their talents, which will increase their damage and spells.
Each of these things requires an assembly of items that you would need to collect early on. This is exactly why game veterans are advising new players to be careful with their resources.
You would need to invest almost 5 million Mora on a character, and the cost of each upgrade requires additional rare items. Hero’s Wit and other items more commonly referred to as green or blue to illustrate the item’s rarity. Green objects are common while purples are rare.
Switching to the weapons side of things, improving them up to level 90 is also possible. Only a few low-level weapons are worth hanging on, while 4 and 5 star weapons should be every player’s goal. Most 3-star weapons are just fodder, so keep that in mind before committing resources to such weapons.
Now upgrading to a 4 and 5 star weapon will require you to spend around 750K Mora and 1.31 Million Mora, respectively. That’s a huge number, and it only makes Mora even more valuable than he ever was before.
Mystical Minerals can only be earned through Events, Treasure Chests, or Forged. Maximizing a respective 4 or 5 star weapon would require 606 and 907 Mystic Ores, respectively.
