Ability Gems (or Abilities, or Skills if you like) are rated in colors, stars, and tiers. You may have an orange “Crippling Slash” that can be leveled to five stars. Is this ability really the best you can get? You need to look closely. What is its tier?
The best abilities are Tier 5 and can be leveled to five stars. They must be evolved five times then upgraded ten more times to reach their full potential. Evolving and upgrading these skills is expensive and time-consuming but they are very, very powerful once you do. Scroll down for images and descriptions of (most of) the best abilities. It’s a work in progress!
Apparently, at least one of the Developers is an H.P. Lovecraft fan. I knew there was a reason I like this game so much!
