Hi guys! I’m not posting much of Game News lately because I am busy IRL and also busy playing this game. Liberation of Azure also known as Liberation of Blue Sky is an ARPG for Android and iOS. I have bunch of friends who are intrigued and want to test the game out but unlike me, they don’t know how to mess around Japanese games so I am posting a simple tutorial to help out English players on how to play this Japanese game.
I will post pictures with English Description. I will try to explain them one by one but take note that most of the translations are based on how I understand its function. Not everything is the translation of the Japanese word written in the button. I can not read any Japanese writings.
Multi Rank – This is your current player level for Co-op. This level only increase when you play dungeons on Event Quests. Multi Rank level is important as players creating Co-op rooms can set the room to only accept players of certain rank.
Energy – It is the famous energy system of mobile games, I’m pretty sure you guys know how it works. You can increase your max energy via Class Skill. To do that you must upgrade an Orange Shoe Icon in the Class Skill Tree.
Gems – This is an in-game currency. There are 2 types of Gems (Paid and Free). Free Gems are always prioritize when consuming Gems. You can also use Gacha using only Paid Gem for a lower Gem Cost.
