Explore the game world
As you complete various missions, you will move from one region to another. Don't be afraid to explore, get materials and open chests. If your opponents' levels are too high, you can just go back to safer regions. You can also wait for other players to defeat the bigger threat and then collect the loot. Sometimes it may happen that if your main level is too low, a message will appear on the screen that the area is available from a specific level. If you stay there, your health will quickly drop to zero.
Do all kinds of tasks
Don't just focus on main or side quests, but also do daily quests that you will unlock access to after the first few hours of the game. This way, you will gain the necessary resources, experience and access to new mechanics much faster.
Cooperate with other players
Tower of Fantasy is, among other things, an MMO meaning that you will see many players. You can team up to gain experience together and defeat more difficult opponents, such as bosses.
Make use of the weapon slots
By entering Simulacrum and then selecting a character, you can equip 3 weapons in that slot. What's more, you can create 3 of these slots. By having the right element on your weapon, you will be prepared for any situation.
Pay attention to the mini-map
New markers appear constantly on the mini-map as you move around the game world - it is in the upper left corner. They are worth checking out, because they usually mark chests or materials that can reward you with a large amount of Black Nucleus currency (you need it to roll characters and weapons).
Pick up guaranteed characters
Every 10th order you will receive a guaranteed character. However, this does not mean that you have to select the Order 10 option. You can select a single Order (the counter is in displayed before selecting the banner) so that you can see how much you are missing from the guaranteed SR or SSR character. Moreover, after doing 80 Orders, paying with Gold Nucleus will give you a guaranteed SSR character.
Do activities in the game world
You can destroy rocky walls, set flowers or grottos on fire to get resources needed for rolling or upgrading weapons/characters. When you see something similar on your way, or a chest marker appears while exploring the world, run up there immediately and do that activity quickly. It takes little time to get interesting prizes.
Don't use the same weapon over and over again!
You can use the three weapons that you equip for your character. It's best to choose different elements to be prepared for any scenario. It's a good idea to actively switch weapons in combat, especially when you get a weapon's omnium and be able to use a powerful attack.
Complete all available Ruins
Ruins are short dungeons in which you have to defeat specific enemies and solve several puzzles. When you complete one of them, you will receive a lot of experience, the necessary materials for upgrading weapons, and even currency. They are worth doing, especially since they are part of the Wanderer's Log quests - completing them will get you many great rewards, and even an SR character.
Make perfect dodges
Perfect dodging in Tower of Fantasy is like parrying. If you manage to do this, you will slow down time and get a large amount of Omnium for your weapon. This is a powerful buff as it will allow you to safely deal a lot of damage to your enemies. Additionally, you will recharge your weapon's abilities faster.
Use vehicles to move quickly
After the first few hours of the game, you will get access to vehicles. In the Vehicles tab, you can select an active vehicle from your collection.
After that, all you have to do is select the steering wheel icon to summon your vehicle. This will make navigating the game world much easier.
Use all Vitality
Vitality is a kind of energy, thanks to which you will be able to use special modes in which you will get a lot of experience points, matrices, armor or gold. It is worth mentioning that the maximum amount of Vitality is 180 - if you have this number, it will not regenerate.
Therefore, it is worth spending this energy as often as possible so that it can restore itself. After several hours, you will unlock 180 Vitality for free, without spending Dark crystals.
Be active in fights against World Bosses
Many powerful bosses can be found in each of the game regions. By defeating them, you will be able to open chests in which you can get, among others, relic shards, a large amount of EXP and Matrices. However, these powerful opponents are very difficult to defeat alone.
Therefore, it is better to write or check in the chat if someone is looking for people to help with a given World Boss.
Keep improving your equipment
In your backpack, you can select the equipment tab. If you have any armor, it's worth wearing it and, if possible, improving it regularly.
The same applies to improving the stats of weapons, relics, matrices or suppressors. Each of these items affects your survivability and damage potential.
Ask friends or Crew members for items
You can ask other Crew (Guild) members or friends for Donations to get a specific item. This is mainly useful when upgrading Vehicles and trying to get parts for them, such as fuel. Click on the item, then request it from Crew members or friends who have been added to your list.
