Looking at the chart above clearly tells us one thing, upgrades require an absurd amount of Mora. Meanwhile, the process of upgrading a character is divided into two sections, talents and character levels.

You can upgrade the character levels that will boost up their stats, and you can upgrade their talents, which will boost their damage output and spells.

Each of these things requires an assembly of items that you would need to collect from the beginning. This is exactly why veterans of the game advise new players to be cautious with their resources.

You would need to invest nearly 5 million Mora on one character, along with the cost of each upgrade requires rare additional items. Hero’s Wit and other items that are more commonly known as greens or blues depicting the rarity of the item. Green items are common while purple are rare ones.

Jumping to the weapons side of things, upgrading them up to level 90 is also possible. Only a few low tier weapons are worth holding on to, while the 4-star and 5-star weapons should be the goal for every player. Most 3-star weapons are just fodder, so keep that in mind before committing resources to such weapons.

Now upgrading a 4 and 5-star weapon will require you to spend around 750K Mora and 1.31 million Mora, respectively. That’s a big number, and it only makes Mora even more valuable than it already was before.

Mystic ores can only be gained through events, in treasure chests, or forged. Maxing out a respective 4-star or 5-star weapon would require 606  and 907 mystic ores, respectively.
