The release date of the desert-filled Arc of Alchemist is coming fast, so we would like to share some more tips and screenshots with you from the game!

 

Here are some screenshots of the Base, which you can use to prepare for the long journey ahead of you. Here you can set party formations, train, construct buildings, and heal.

It's also possible to select from a wide range of facilities to help strengthen your party members. For example, create a Maintenance of Weapons Facility to unlock powerful weapons for battle!

You can also strategise on how you want to lead your party by changing their tactics. By default, your squad is set to "Free Will" where they will fight and/or defend as needed. However, you can customise their AI commands to attack the same target you're hitting or even have them play more passively. Players can also equip specific item sets that specialise in things like farming for materials or battling tough enemies.

Players will need to buy new items as they progress through the Desert of Beginnings and failing to do so will have major consequences. As you explore, you will encounter an abundance of items that you can sell to get currency. Grab all the items you can, as you will need to upgrade a variety of things with money, including the expansion of your base, attaining stronger weapons, and boosting specific stats for each character!

Training is a vital feature where all the playable characters can learn new skills and upgrade them. Learning and upgrading skills will also cost in-game currency, so check your balance before spending.

 The desert-filled RPG Arc of Alchemist™ will be heading to Europe on January 31, 2020, but we would like to share some screenshots and more exciting details about it with you while you wait!

Use the Powerful Lunagear to Navigate Through the Trap-filled Desert!

The Lunagear is a special device assembled with ancient technology. Only Quinn is capable of using it, and by incorporating "Orbs", its wearer can control the elements: Fire, Water, Wind, and Earth. The Lunagear corresponds with whichever Orb is equipped. With the Fire Orb, you can summon fire to damage enemies; with the Earth Orb, a slab of rock to form a barrier against damage. Use these different Orb elements to solve various puzzles in the Desert of Beginnings. Certain puzzles will require players to combine two elemental Orbs to progress, so experiment with the different possibilities!

Form a rock wall for defence with the Earth Orb!

Protruding Walls, Hidden Spike Traps & Other Mechanical Gimmicks - Don't Let Them Fool You!

As Quinn and her squad explore the Desert of Beginnings, hidden mechanical gimmicks will emerge to block their path, explode on contact, and more! Keep the team safe by recognising signs of these traps.

 

Use Gimmicks to Your Advantage & Find Enemy Weaknesses! 

Exploring the world of Arc of Alchemist™ you will notice special gimmicks that can only be activated with the Lunagear. Use these gimmicks to your advantage to light up lamps and also weaken larger and stronger mechanical bosses!
