Tips for Leveling Up


  • Spend your Salt: You get salt each time you eliminate enemies. Be it your regular foes or Minions of Mages or Mages themselves. Defeating all sorts of enemies will grant you a different number of Salt depending on the enemy. But whenever you die you lose your Salt and have one chance to go to the location of your death and retrieve them. If you die before retrieving you lose the Salt. Hence it is important to use them whenever you get the chance.
  • Know when to use Salt: This again ties to the above tip. If you know there is a high chance of you dying and not being able to retrieve the Salt. Then it is best if you use it up. One of the best times to use it is before starting a Boss fight.
  • Don’t pick every fight: Fighting new enemies is great but always fighting can take away a lot of your health in the process. So while you should fight the enemies when you enter a new area, avoid fighting them each time you die. It will only frustrate you as it will make progression slow. Don’t pick fights especially when you have no Salt. This is great for exploration in case you die you literally have nothing to lose. But you will have explored the area.
