How to Get Tars And Glimpses in Mortal Shell
You can see the total numbers of Tars and Glimpses in your pocket on the bottom right corner of your screen. The left number shows total Tar and the right one is the amount of Glimpse you have. In this Mortal Shell, currencies guide you will get to know how you can get both Tars and Glimpses and where you can find them easily.
Tars are much easier to get as compared to Glimpses. You can get them by killing enemies on your way. Every enemy that you defeat drops a small amount of Tar. The value depends on the strength of the enemies you defeat. More dangerous foes yield more Tar.
There are two primary sources to get Glimpses in Mortal Shell. One is through enemies just like getting Tars and the other is by farming certain items. The first source; however, is not certain as not every killed enemy will drop Glimpses. The drop depends on your luck and the enemy type. To get it by farming you have to collect certain items marked as Glimpses or generic. Some of the common items that give you Glimpses are Glimpse of Wisdom, Glimpse of Affection, and Glimpse of Futility.
There is also an alternative way to get a huge amount of Tars and Glimpses. To farm Glimpses and Tars through this method, you must have completed at least one of the three temples. Completing temples gives you access to NPC Thestus, who will help you farm Glimpses much more quickly. You have to go to Thestus and pay one Glimpse to summon the Fog Overworld. The Fog Overworld will spawn 2 Grishas. Find these two Grishas and defeat them. They will drop 6 Glimpses and 750 Tars each. Thus, you will get 12 Glimpses and 1500 Tars within a few minutes, if you have the courage to face the Fog Overworld.
