Basic Tips


Keep a full roster whenever possible, with a good variety of classes, so that you can swap in new heroes when you need them.

Check your party members’ strengths and skills and make sure you have them positioned so that you can make full use of them.

Make sure you have a dedicated healer in your party when you head into a boss fight.

Try to plan out the shortest backtracking path possible. You’ll make out better than if you try to explore every room.

Keep an eye on your party members’ stress levels.

Curios can be dangerous. Avoid using them until you’re familiar with them and know what to expect.
