Awaken: Chaos Era is a hero collector/gacha game where players have to summon their favorite characters through summoning for them using their summoning currency called Crystals. Players have the choice of summoning through different summoning currencies available in the game. The most common will be the Advanced Summoning Crystal which takes into account summoning the highest rarity heroes while the Summoning Crystal just has the capability to summon the lower rarity heroes. Players can also summon using the Limited Summon Dust and Element-specific summoning crystals which are available through events and/or quests. The rates for the highest rarity characters called Legendaries are only 1%.
Awaken: Chaos Era is a gacha game but currently has 4 types of banners:
- Rookie Summoning Banner
- Advanced Summon Banner
- Normal Summon Banner
- Limited Summon Banner
Players can summon each of these banners using different currencies. Keep in mind the rates of summoning different rarity heroes are the following:
- Legendary Heroes (Fire/Wood/Water) – 0.9%
- Legendary Heroes (Light/Dark) – 0.1%
- Epic Heroes (Fire/Wood/Water) – 9%
- Epic Heroes (Light/Dark) – 1%
- Elite Heroes (Fire/Wood/Water) – 80.1%
- Elite Heroes (Light/Dark) – 8.9%
Understanding The Currencies
Awaken: Chaos Era has many different currencies that it takes into account for doing different tasks in the game. Players should get accustomed to what they are and what they do in-game to make the overall progression faster and more efficient. As a new player, you will be introduced mainly to 3 different currencies which will revolve around the main story of the game:
Energy is the main currency that is used to play the game itself. Majority of the PvE content requires energy to be able to be played and completed. Energy is acquired passively at the rate of 1 energy per 5 minutes. Players can get more Energy by using their Daily free 120 refresh they get for free, by using Meal Coupons which can replenish 50 energy per ticket used, and/or 50 Diamonds to refresh 120 energy instantly. Other ways to obtain energy include completing quests, getting the free 20 energy from the daily pack, and fighting in the Arena, and winning battles.
Diamond is the premium currency that is used for hero summoning and purchasing energy refreshes. Diamonds are obtained via events, endless trials, Arena, developer rewards via mail, and daily/weekly quests. Players can use these resources to summon on the new banners or to refresh energy. Although, we highly recommend spending it on summoning to have a chance to acquire new powerful units because Stamina can be refreshed through Meal Tickets as well plus Diamonds get scarce the more you progress and complete the main story.
Gold is the currency that players will be using almost everywhere and in huge quantities at every stage of the game. This is the currency that will be most abundant and available to players as they progress through the game. Players can use it to level up their units, enhance equipment, enhance skills, and pretty much anywhere related to enhancing your units. Players can obtain Gold via quests, events, and other game modes. We recommend spending Gold wisely and focusing only on a certain team of units that you have in mind instead of mindlessly upgrading every hero.
Understanding the UI
Awaken: Chaos Era has a beautiful UI where almost all of the content and game modes are presented together along with all of the other areas like Unit, Summoning, Altar, etc. Players can toggle between them interchangeably as they are interlinked.
Players can see all the shortcuts of the menus if they click on the “Star” like button at the top right-hand side which will show a drop-down menu with every sub-menu and their icons labeled. Players can progress through the main story by clicking on the “Adventure” option. Let’s discuss some of the features of this UI and the menus it has for the ease of new players.
The Hero’s tab is the menu where players can view their owned units in-game. In this menu, players can view all the heroes they summoned or acquired throughout playing the game and different options to empower them. Players can view and filter out depending on the rarities, elements, and level of their units.
Players can further select their units and enhance them as well. Enhancing consists of:
- Leveling Up
Leveling Up consists of raising your unit’s level using EXP Jelly. EXP Jelly can be acquired throughout the game as you play and farm different areas of the game. The main source of EXP Jelly is usually from the Adventure mode. Keep in mind while leveling up, it takes less EXP Jelly at the beginning but drastically goes up when the Heroes reach a higher level. Do not spend all your EXP Jelly to max out a single hero but try to make a team formation and level them accordingly. Players can level each hero according to their Star level. For example, heroes which are 2-star can only be leveled up to a maximum of 20.
Promotion is the mechanic where players increase the Level Cap of their heroes and increase their overall base stats by increasing their star level. Promoting Heroes require the heroes to be at the max level of their current Star level and the specific amount of fodder material required. By fodder material, we mean either hero of the same star level or pumpkins of the same star level. For example, if players want to promote their Hydressia from 2-Stars to 3-Star they will need her to be at Level 20 along with 2 of 2-Star Pumpkins or 2 of 2-Star heroes. The fodder heroes just need to match the star level and do not need to be levelled up. Hence, it’s a grindy feature but it boosts the overall stats of your heroes.
Ascension is the process using which your heroes can get increased base stats as well as enhanced passive traits at some certain levels of the Ascension. The only thing is this will take a lot of time as Ascension requires duplicates of the same hero to be used and once used, that duplicate will be permanently gone and cannot be recovered. Ascending the low rarity units like Elites and Epics is still easier than ascending the higher rarity one’s like Legendaries.
Glyphs are like the runes in many other similar gacha games of the same genre. Players can farm different glyphs which come in different rarities and further when they have enough of them, they can Activate them to give your heroes bonus stats. Glyphs have different levels with Level 1 being the lowest and Level 5 being the highest. Each level takes a different rarity of Glyph to activate them and further needs Gold to level them up. The difference between a Level 1 Glyph hero and a Level 5 glyph hero is very massive as they give so many free stats, hence, it’s recommended that players use their energy to farm glyphs early-mid game for their units in the adventure mode to make them stronger.
Gear is the equipment system we see in similar turn-based gacha games. Each hero has 6 slots for their gear to be embedded – Weapon, Head, Chest, Feet, Hands, and Neck. Players can farm different rarity gear from the gear dungeons in the Arcane dungeon or from the story mode in Adventure. Every piece of gear can have different substats and main stat depending on their rarity and their area. Gear comes in different sets and equipping gear of the same set gives the hero a bonus stat advantage.
The abilities of the heroes can be upgraded and enhanced by using the different elemental currencies called Crystals and Obsidians. Players can find and farm them in the No Man’s Land dungeon. They come in different elements and are farmable which is good for players as they can easily max out the abilities of their favorite characters.
Quests are divided into 3 different types of quests – Daily, Weekly, and Achievements. Daily quests are those quests that reset on a daily basis and can be completed infinitely every day.
