About the Game
You are a vampire, You must assemble a band of familiars and bind them to you by blood.
Only then can you face the Dynast-King and his vast host in this RPG of blood and steel.
The world in which the game is set. Arnashia is made up of nine regions.
The subdivisions of a region. Each area is further divided into zones. [Areas will have their own pages, links to each will be available on the Arnashia world page.]
The subdivisions of an area. [Zones will be detailed on the appropriate Area page with information about available familiars, maps, and more.]
Your advancement through a zone is measured in steps. Tap an arrow to advance, and you will automatically move to the next icon (Foe, Chest, etc.) All branches lead to the end of the zone but they may have different obstacles and rewards along the way. Each step consumes one ration.
Each step you take requires energy, which regenerates at the rate of one point every five minutes and fully recovers when your warlord levels up. Your energy is displayed at the top of the screen.
Reach the end of the zone to clear it.
You receive spoils for clearing a zone and you can open any coffers and reliquaries you've found. The way to the next zone will also be unlocked, and your brigade will regain full HP.
In the Zone
If your brigade is defeated, it is forced to withdraw from the zone. Any rare chest found are lost, and you must attempt the zone from the beginning.
Before heading back in, it's a good idea to strengthen your brigade by returning to an earlier zone or making new Blood Brothers. After withdrawing, your brigade regains full HP.
Contain a small amount of gold.
Contain more gold than a coin purse.
Contain gold and items
Coffers hold rare treasure, and cannot be opened until the zone is cleared.
Reliquaries contain the rarest treasure and cannot be opened until the zone is cleared. The contents are usually superior to that found in coffers and can include gold.
Touching a Foe icon within a zone brings up the battle screen. You can swap in familiars from reserve and adjust your brigade composition before touching "To Battle!" to begin the fight.
Defeat all foes to win a battle and earn XP.
If everyone in your party is rendered unconscious, you lose the battle and your foe will leave the battlefield.
When a familiar's HP reaches 0, they fall unconscious and can no longer fight.
If everyone in your brigade is unconscious, the game is over. If your warlord loses consciousness, the game is over even if your familiars still have HP. Use a panacea to revive the entire brigade, or an elixir to revive your warlord, to continue advancing through the zone without withdrawing.
The end of each area is guarded by a boss. Defeat the boss to advance to the next area. If you're defeated by a boss, the boss will not recover any HP lost in the battle, which will help in your next attempt.
Conditions are beneficial or harmful effects applied using skills in battle.
A poisoned familiar slowly loses HP.
A paralyzed familiar cannot take actions for one turn.
A frozen familiar cannot take actions for one turn.
A temporary beneficial condition.

Note that rewards for PvP, including daily ranking rewards and win-streak rewards are always the subject to change.
Event Coin Conversion
Unused Event Coins are subject to be converted to either Copper Coin, Silver Coin or Gold at the conclusion of the event. The process may take up to days and these would be delivered to your General Wagon with a notice.
Event Ranking Rewards
Event ranking rewards are delivered to your General Wagon. This may take hours after the conclusion of the event. You may recieve daily event rewards soon after the event ends, but these are different than the ranking rewards.
Event Ranking (Event Ally Bonus)
The final event ranking is determined after finalizing the point calculation, which would take couple of hours after the event ends. There tends to be significant changes in the final ranking as the players become highly competitive toward the end of an event. Also note that some players do not accept points from their event ally till the end, which greatly raises their ranking and causes quite a bit differences even after the event ends when finally calculated.
Event Point Rewards Switchover to Ranking rewards
Event point rewards are shown in the event information box in the Map during Journey (top left). After achieving all the available point rewards, the rewards shown will be switched to the next ranking reward you can aim for.
Look into Homescreen > Info > "the concerned event" for the further details of the event's point rewards and ranking rewards.
Event Elites and Event Reward Familiars

When a familiar makes a Blood Brothers pact with a shade, it gains more Skill XP than usual. If you find a shade, access the Blood Brothers menu from the Home Screen to use it in a pact.

About leveling up a familiar
Familiars as well as Warlord earn XPs and level up by battling in zones. Note that XPs cannot be earned in the following cases;
- the level of the familiar/Warlord is maxed out
- the familiar/Warlord is in reserve (Bloodclash is exceptional)
- the familiar is in a different brigade than the one selected for the current Journey
The stats of familiar/Warlord in blue are the edged stats. If you would like to check the familiar's original stats, please refer to the familiar details at Blood Brothers section, or Bazaar section.
Band a group of familiars into a brigade to explore a zone. You can form up to three brigades. You cannot adjust a brigade or change formations once within a zone. You can drag and drop familiars to assign their positions. When selecting "Auto Banding", your warlord will always be placed at the center of the reserve.
Select Auto while banding to have your brigade assembled for you.
A brigade is made up of a party, broken down into front, center, and rear positions, and a reserve. Cannot be changed while in a zone.
The foremost position in a party. Familiars in the front deal more damage, but they also take more in return.
The center position in a party.
The backmost position in a party. Familiars in the rear take less damage, but they deal less too.
The familiars in the forward, fighting lines of a brigade.
Familiars in the reserve stand behind the party. Each reserve position can hold two familiars. If a familiar in the party falls unconscious during battle, it is automatically replaced with a character from the reserve at the end of the battle.
You can swap characters between the party and reserve while exploring a zone. The number of circles at the bottom of each character indicates the number of characters in each step, so it's a good idea to place wounded familiars in reserve.
Each brigade marches to battle in a given formation. Occasionally you'll learn a new formation after clearing a zone.
Bonded by Blood
Familiars bound to each other by blood. Once bound to a master, a minion familiar will no longer appear in your list of familiars.
A master can have up to eight minions, and each raises the skill level of the master.
Once bound to a master as a Blood Brother, a minion familiar can no longer be part of a brigade, and will not appear in your familiar list.
Making the Bond
Tap to select/unselect a familiar. Tap and hold to view the familiar's stats. First select the familiar that will become the master, then select its minions. It costs gold to make Blood Brothers. After the bond is made, the minion will no longer appear in your familiar list. Familiars in a brigade can be selected as masters, but not minions.
Master Skill Levels
Creating a Blood Brother gives Skill XP to the master, raising its skill level. If a familiar is at max skill level, it cannot be selected as a master, though it can still become a minion.
Rare familiars earn more skill XP when selected as a master. Making Blood Brothers from two of the same familiars provides a further skill XP bonus.
By combining two of the same familiar, it is possible to create an evolved familiar that is stronger than the originals, with a different appearance. The rarity of some familiars may change after evolving, and it's even possible their initial stats may be lower. Rest assured that after gaining some levels their new stats will surpass the old.
The familiar to be evolved.
The familiar used as a raw material in an evolution is called the "seed". Once used, the seed is removed from your familiars. Only one seed may be chosen in each evolution.
How to Evolve
Tap a familiar to select or deselect it. Tap and hold on a familiar to view its detailed stats. First choose the target familiar, or "spawn", then choose the seed. Gold is necessary to complete the evolution. Note that familiars currently in a party may not be selected.
A spawn inherits 5% of the seed's stats by default. However, the higher the level of the seed, the more stats are transferred. A seed raised to max level will transfer 10% of its stats to the spawn.
A familiar can only evolve a limited number of times--the more * icons it has, the more it can evolve. Evolving twice increases the familiar's rarity and changes its skills.
Sometimes the difference in stats after Evolution shows negative figures, but please be assured that both of the Inherit and evolution bonus are appropriately applied.
Empowering a familiar raises its core stats. To empower a familiar, one must shatter a crystal containing a spirit with the power to bolster a familiar's stats.
These crystals house spirits that control one of the five core stats. The ritual shattering of the crystals claims the life of the spirit within.
Increase HP by 50.
Increase ATK by 50.
Increase DEF by 50.
Increase AGI by 50.
Increase WIS by 50.
Add skills to your warlord by transferring them from familiars.
Your warlord can learn up to three skills. The skills of a minion familiar whose level is 99can be transferred to your warlord. Your warlord can learn the same skill multiple times.
- Regarding Adding Skills: Familiars whose skills are transferred to your warlord will be permanentley lost. Be careful!
- Please note that familiars with two or more skills cannot be used to add skills to a warlord.
- You can assign the same skill to a warlord multiple times, but it won't increase the trigger rate. It's more effective to choose a variety of skills.
Dismissing a familiar annuls its pact in exchange for a sum of gold. If you find yourself with too many of a certain familiar, the gold may be of more use.
An unholy ritual to revive a fallen ally from his grave. Visit Lada in the cemetary to purchase a fresh coffin.
The Blessed Pact may only be attempted once, but will always yield a rare familiar.

An ancient coin used to purchase copper pacts. Lada, keeper of the graves, is known to collect them. Can be found in coffers and as a reward for clearing a zone.
During the Redraw Campaign you can choose to redraw a familiar once per pact. If you want to try for a different familiar than the first one that appears, redrawing is for you.
Redraw Notes and Warnings
You only get one chance to redraw per pact. When you redraw, you have to keep the second familiar that appears - you won't have the option to go back and take the first familiar, so be careful.
Also note that if ten minutes elapses after the first familiar appears, a pact is automatically made with that familiar and you will not be able to redraw.
Forging more than 10 pacts at once (Copper/Silver Pacts)
When forging more than 10 pacts at one go, only the animations of the top 10 familiars drawn, sorted by rarity, will be played.
You may check the details of all familiars drawn after all animations have finished playing.

Aside from the first tier of the stat upgrade tree, you can only choose an upgrade if it is connected to a previous tier. Boosting a stat requires both gold and Soul Fragments. The cost of the upgrade is shown on the top of the page. Once you have boosted a stat, upgrades in the next tier below the upgraded stat are unlocked. Certain upgrades provide a larger stat increase than others, depending on the level of blood shown on the upgrade image. You may unboost a boosted stat for a smaller refund by selecting the upgrade, and then pressing Unboost. You cannot unboost a stat if it is linked to a higher tier of upgrades. The only upgrade that is not able to be unboosted is the Double Skill upgrade.
This page shows the skills that the Blood-Linked Familiar is able to learn. Skills are boosted in the same way as stats, and require both gold and Soul Fragments to be boosted. Once boosted, skills can be unboosted for a smaller refund. You may learn multiple skills without fully upgrading your first skill (if the familiar has more than 1 skill slot). Boosting and unboosting a skill does not change your current skill level.
