[Guide] Character Growth Guide

[Last Updated December 7, 2021] Slowly updating the whole guide to add the new changes after Goddess Patch.

Title: [Guide] Character Growth Guide
Server: [SEA] Telsiai
Team name: Redrelle

This guide aims to help newbies and returnees on how to gear up and progress in the game. I will try to make it as simple as possible for readers to fully understand.

This is assuming that you are a new/returning player and you are on your first character.

New/Returning Saviors Settling Support

This is a daily login attendance rewards for new and returning players. It will prompt to you once you login and it can also be found under System Menu (Esc) > Attendance Reward Check.

Attendance Rewards
Special thanks to my guildmate Astrivard for sharing me this image!

You are considered a New or Returning Savior when:

  • New: Newly created account
  • Returning: Old players that have not logged in for 30 days or more

The attendance rewards have a 30-day duration (Check Period), starting from the day you first logged in. There are 14 rewards available and you can claim them as long as you login for 14 days within the duration.

These rewards are what you need to gear up so it’s a must to get them! Here is a list of the items that you can obtain in case you are wondering what’s inside of those boxes.

Day 1 will give you Level Jumping Card (Lv460) and Class EXP Card Box.

  • Use the level jump card to arrive at max level in an instant!
  • Use the class exp cards to immediately complete the class advancements!

You may then start fixing you gears!

Episode Quests

List of episode quests can be found in Quests (F5).

Since you are already at max level, the important episodes you need to complete are EP12-2 and EP13-1. The rewards that you can get from these episodes are also needed for your gear progression.

You may skip the early episodes (since you are already Lv460 anyway) and start at EP12-1. Expand the Quest List and click the Shortcut to go to the starting NPC.

Quest Shortcut

Vasilisa Armors and Weapons

You can get Vasilisa and Vaivora Vision Selection Boxes when you finish EP12-2 quests.

Vasilisa is the current end-game gear type - a.k.a. Goddess rank gears.

What type of armor should you use?

  • Leather - if you are a DPS
  • Cloth - if you are a Healer
  • Plate - if you are a Tank, and is commonly used in PvP

The gears are already at +7 Enhancement (ENH) and Lv10 Transcendence (TRA). The TRA is already at max level, so you just need to enhance these gears further. You can increase a goddess gear’s ENH in Goddess Equipment Management.

Goddess Equipment Management

Can be found in Inventory (F2).

Goddess Equipment Management

Forge

This is where you can Enhance, Enchant, Transcend, and Evolve your goddess gears.

Enhance

  • Attendance rewards will give you Goddess Tokens and Refined Vasilisa Scales which you can use to enhance goddess gears. You can obtain more of these when doing contents.
  • Enhance Aids are additional ingredients that you can use to increase the success rate of the enhancement. It can be obtained by chance in some contents like Unknown Sanctuary. In-game events sometimes give these as rewards and it is also included in the attendance rewards. Premium Enhance Aid is a “premium” version of it - can only be bought at TP shop.

Enchant

Attendance rewards will also give you [Lv460] Goddess Enchant Jewels which is a material required to enchant goddess gears. In-game events usually give these also as rewards and can also be bought at Gabija Shop.

More about Enchantment (and Awakening)

The list of possible enchant lines and their max values are shown below:

Awakening an item

Alchemist shops at towns have this service. You need Premium Awakening Stones and Awakening Abrasives for this. In-game events also give awakening stones as rewards. It can also be bought at Gabija Shop.

Transfer Enchantment / Awakening

You can also transfer enchant or awakening to another item via Professional Alchemist NPC and select Transfer Bonus Stat (Awakening) or Transfer Bonus Stat (Enchantment).

For awakening, you can only transfer it to the same type of item (e.g. you can transfer a top’s awakening to another top).

Also take note that enchantment and awakening on a 0-potential item can only be transferred to another 0-potential item, so make sure that your item has potential if you want to sell your enchantment.

Transcend

You need Goddesses’ Blessed Gems (BG) to transcend. It will indicate how many BGs are required for 100% success rate. Make sure you obtain the right amount to avoid failure.

  • Where to get BGs: Common way is to just buy them at the market.
  • Blessed Shard (BS) is also available. You can convert 10 BS into 1 BG. Get blessed shards when you do contents like CMs and lvl400 dungeon. Recipe to craft BG is available at Item Merchant npc and Gabija Shop.

BG Recipe

Evolve

This is a “whaler” version of upgrading gears. You may take a look at this after your gear progression. :smiley:

Engrave

This is where you can save your random ichors. Engraved ichors are character-bound. Each character have 2 slots for engrave, can add more by using engrave slot voucher.

You can save your old Primus ichors (armors only) in Ichor tab.

To apply the engraved ichors to your gears, go to Apply Engraving tab.

After applying, you can make changes to the stats using Sandra Magnifiers. Once you’re done modifying, you may save it in the Save Engraving tab.

The attendance rewards will give you these Sandra Magnifiers which are used for ichoring. Attendance will also give you [Lv460] Engrave Stones which are used to increase the success rate of engraving a random stat. These items are also available at Gabija Shop.

More about Random Ichors

To make a random ichor:

  1. Identify an unidentified item (to Blacksmith npc or to appraiser shops at towns). Unidentified items are those items that do not have stats. Your goddess gears are all unidentified when you open the selection boxes.
    Attendance reward will also give Sandra’s Free Magnifier that works the same as appraiser shops, only difference is that it is free of charge! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

  1. Use Mysterious or Artisan Magnifiers to get the maximum number of lines (four lines).

Mysterious and Artisan Magnifiers

  1. After getting the max lines, get your desired colors/stats.
    One way is to use Sandra’s Magnifier (a.k.a. blue sandra). Using this will change the color and stat.

Sandra's Magnifier

Another way is to reidentify it at Blacksmith npc in towns. You can do this if you have the desired color but want to change the stat. Just go to the npc and select Item Re-identification.
Note that this will change all the stats, unlike blue sandra where you can select the stat that you want to change.

Attendance rewards will give you 1 Time Free Re-Identification Voucher which you can use to replace nucle and sierra powders as materials needed to reidentify.

  1. When you have the right stats, use Sandra’s Detailed Magnifier (a.k.a. red sandra) to change the value of the stat.

Sandra's Detailed Magnifier

To know the max stats, just hover to the gear and press Alt.

Max stats

Socket Management

This is where you can put socket and gems in your gears.

More about Gems

  • Colored Gems - These gems give additional attack and can only be put in weapons (main weapon and sub-weapon). You can also increase its level by using Gem Abrasives.
  • Skill Gems - These are class-specific gems that gives +1 level to a particular skill. It is fixed to Lv1 and cannot be leveled up. You can only put them on armors (top/bottom/gloves/boots).
  • Aether Gems - Gems that you can put in weapons that give additional stats. You can get this once you reach Lv460.

Where to get gem abrasives/colored gems/skill gems: Some contents such as Uphill Defense give gem abrasives. You may also get daily at Geraldasia npc (in Klaipeda) or Geraldason npc (in Orsha) - one free draw, pay silver for next succeeding draws. This is also where you can get white gem (loot chance gem) or if you’re lucky, skill gems!
Skill Gem Cube also randomly drops at contents like Dimensional Collapse Point (DCP).

Gem Abrasive

There is also a higher type of abrasive like Shining Lv10 Gem Abrasive. Can sometimes be obtained in some in-game events and TP packages.

Shining Lv10 Gem Abrasive

Where to get Aether Gems: You may check my other guide [Renewed] Bounty Hunt and Aether Gem guide to know more about aether gems.

Enhancing a Gem

Go to Rest mode (press Insert), then select Gem Enhancement.

Gem Enhancement

Remember to roast your colored gems before putting it in your equipment (to remove the negative stat, applicable to colored gems only). There are plenty of Alchemist shops in towns that offers roasting service.

Craft

This is where to craft Vasilisa (a.k.a. Goddess) gears


Magic stones can be obtained in various contents.

Succession

This is where you can convert a legend rank gear to goddess rank.

Returning players who still have Glacia Legenda or Savinose Dysnai gears can convert these into Vasilisa. It also shows the requirements and conditions when succeeding a gear.

Equipment Succession

Type Change

This is where you can change an armor or weapon to a different type.

Equipment Storage

This is where you can create and upgrade your Fixed Ichors, Accessories, and Ark. It can also be found in Inventory (F2).

Equipment Storage

For returning players with progressed gears, you may dismantle the following at Professional Alchemist npc (select Dismantle Special Items):

  • Ark
  • Goddess/Demon ichors
  • Vaivora ichors
  • Luciferie Accessories - extract the ENH and TRA first before dismantling your accessory set

You can extract your old luciferie set at [Teliavelis’ Disciple] Naujoves at Fedimian (Extract Luciferie Property).

Extracting these items will give back the materials. Amount of materials refunded are much more than you invested before, so you can make more accessories. For Luciferie, you will be given Property Restore Scrolls - the ENH at TRA of your old luciferie is saved to it.

Property Restore Scrolls

Note that the gears created via Equipment Storage are character-bound and cannot be transferred via team storage.

Weapon

Right-click the Vaivora Vision you obtained from EP12-2 rewards to register it to Equipment Storage.

  • Put the fixed ichor in your gear at Apply Ichor tab. Place the gear on the box and click Apply.
  • Upgrade your item at Upgrade tab. It will list the materials needed. Right click the materials in your inventory to register it.

Armor

Use the Storage Goddess’/Demon God’s Armor Register Voucher you got from EP13 rewards.

Same process as the weapons, apply and upgrade it via Equipment Storage.

Accessories

You will see Karaliene set first in the Equipment Storage. You need to make them first before the Luciferie set appears. Note that the materials shown are for the whole set already.

  • Use the Storage Karaliene Accessory Register Voucher from EP13-1 rewards.
  • Use the Sole Hunt one-entry vouchers from attendance rewards to get Scorched Valuable of Tel Harsha.
  • Once have enough materials, upgrade the Karaliene in your Equipment Storage into Luciferie.
  • Use the Luciferie Accessory Set Create Voucher to create the accessory set!
  • If you have a hard time clearing Sole Hunt: Tel Harsha, you may use the Karaliene Accessory Create Voucher so you can have decent accessories. If not, you may keep it for future use.
  • For returning players who have Property Restore Scrolls, you may use them on the luciferie set to instantly put ENH and TRA!

You can increase the ENH of accessories using anvils. Attendance rewards and in-game events give these. For TRA, you may transcend it at Teliavelis NPC in Fedimian.

More about Enhancement and Transcendence

Enhancement

Try to enhance your accessories to at least +11. Better if you can go +16-21.

Kinds of anvils:

  • Normal anvil - can be bought at Item merchant npc.
  • Silver anvil - will not require silver if you use this.
  • Golden anvil - use this when the potential of the item is 0.
  • Ruby anvil - same with golden anvil, but use this when potential is 0 and the item’s enhancement is already above +10.

Note that using golden and ruby anvils will cost you a lot of silvers. If you can afford, use Shining Advanced Golden Anvils and Shining Ruby Anvils. These anvils do not require silver fee for enhancement. Another way to save silver on enhancing is to have Enhancement Coupons. It is available at Gabija Shop.

Transcendence

You can transcend your Luciferie accessories and other legend rank items at Blacksmith Teliavelis NPC in Fedimian (select Transcend High Grade Item).

Same material (Blessed Gem) is needed and make sure to put the right amount for 100% success.

Ark

Use the Storage Ark Register Voucher, then create the ark and use the Character Bound Ark Level Up Scroll (Lv10) to level it up instantly!

More about Ark

Crafting an Ark

You may do this if you want an ark that is transferrable to team storage. Go to Professional Alchemist npc in towns and select Craft Ark.

You need two arch stones to craft an Ark. Arch Stones can be obtained by chance in contents like legend raids (hard mode). There are also Arch Stone Fragments available - 10pcs of this can be converted to one arch stone. Fragments can be obtained (also by chance) in contents like legend raids, wbr, dcp, ds.

Archstones

Thierrynium can be crafted in the same npc - select Craft Special Ingredient.

If you got lucky and obtained an Arch Stone, but it is not the one you need, you can exchange an Arch Stone at Professional Alchemist npc - select Arch Stone Switch.

Enhancing an Ark

Go to Rest mode (press Insert), then select Ark Craft.

Ark Craft

Mystic Tome Pages can be obtained in contents such as WBR and drops by chance in Legend Raids.
Sierra Stone recipe can be bought at Item Merchant npc and Gabija Shop.

You can also transfer an Ark’s level to another ark. To access it, go to Rest mode (press Insert) and select Ark Transfer.

After doing the steps above, you are now ready to do some contents! Use the one-entry vouchers you got from attendance rewards when you do contents and keep the loots you are getting as you need those to upgrade your gears further.

Brikynite and Magic Stones can be obtained via CM or DS.
Refined Heart of Glacia can be obtained when you do Legend White Witch raid. You can either get the refined or normal Heart of Glacia by chance. Right-click the normal Heart of Glacia to convert it to Refined.

Scorched Valuable of Tel Harsha can be obtained when you do Sole Hunt: Tel Harsha. Make sure to include this in your weeklies. One entry voucher can be also bought per week at Mercenary Badge Shop.

Luperium and Violetin Crystal can be crafted at Professional Alchemist npc.

Attendance rewards will also give you Mercenary Badges and Gabija Tokens that you can use to purchase items at their respective shops.

Mercenary Badge

image

Mercenary Badge is needed when you buy items at Mercenary Badge Shop. This shop also contains the one entry vouchers of daily/weekly contents such as Challenge Mode, Division Singularity, Sole Hunt, Dimensional Collapse Point. Source of silver is in the dailies (daily CM and DS grind) so you need to collect as many badges as you can!

There are many ways on how to obtain mercenary badges (listed below are weekly contents - so make sure to do them every week!):

  • Uphill Defense
    Try to join those who are looking for party members at world chat. But with your current gears by this time, you might have a hard time joining a party because most players prefer geared ones for their party. If so, you may skip this but try as much as possible.

  • Dimensional Collapse Point (DCP)
    This also requires a party and need for you to survive longer, but can be done easily than Uphill. Just buy Turn Undead Scrolls at market before joining a party.

  • Remnants of Bernice Dungeon
    The most convenient one in my opinion since it is a solo content. Try to finish it as high as you can (higher stage = more badges).

  • Weekly Boss Raid (WBR)
    Also a solo content so it is also convenient. Try to get the 20M Total Damage Reward for the badges (if you can do higher, the better).

  • In-game events
    Always check in-game events!

If you have collected at least 30,000 mercenary badges, you may start doing daily Challenge Modes (CM)!

Note that there are daily and weekly vouchers for DS (Division Singularity). As its name says, Daily vouchers have only 1-day duration, so make sure to consume it immediately.

You can enter in CM/DS via Contents Status Board (F10) > Dungeons > Challenge Mode > Solo or Auto Match (Party) for CM / Division Singularity for DS. Hover on the Entry Limit to check the requirements to enter.

Gear Score and Attribute Achievement Rate

You can find these in Character Information (F1).

Gear Score identifies if you can enter some contents that have Entry Level score such as CM and DS. It is calculated based on your gears.

Calculation for Gear Score (Source: Tree of Savior):

You may also check the link above to see the required gear score for each content and the gear score of legend accessories.

Attribute Achievement Rate identifies the amount of attribute points required to enter some contents. It is calculated based on the total attribute points used in your character’s learned attributes.

Calculation for Attribute Score (Source: Tree of Savior):

Goddess Token (Gabija)

Doing CM and DS also gives Gabija Tokens. It is much like both mercenary badge and silver. There is a Gabija Shop where you can buy useful items via gabija tokens. It is also used when upgrading the current end-game gears.


You can also buy gabija tokens via silvers by clicking the Change Points button.

While doing your daily grind, you may continue to add the remaining gears you need:

Boruta Seal

Aim is to get at least +3 Boruta Seal as this is too pricy to level up.

More about Boruta Seal

Where to get seals: Game contents like Weekly Boss Raid, Uphill, DCP give boruta seals by chance.
Boruta Fragments are also available. Get 10 of these to obtain 1 boruta seal. You can get fragments in the Fedimian Public House Balloting or market (tho I do not recommend gambling, so just save up and buy a seal at market :D).

Enhancing a Seal

Where: Blacksmith Teliavelis in Fedimian (select Enhance Seal)

To make +2, you need two lv1 seals (your main seal and the sacrifice) + magic stones. Amount of magic stones required will be indicated. Get that amount to have 100% success rate.
To make +3, you need two lv2 seals + magic stones. Note that for lv3 and above, success rate is not 100% even if you put the max number of magic stones required. This really requires luck to be on your side.
If luck is against you, you can just save money and buy a +3 one.
And yes, making +4 to +5 seal is reeeeally pricy plus it requires luck, so most just opt for +3.

Boruta Seal: Common

Unlike the boruta seal per class, this is the seal that can be used by any class. To exchange the class-specific skill into common seal, go to [Teliavelis’ Disciple] Naujoves npc (just beside Teliavelis) and select Seal Exchange.
Note that you cannot revert it back to a class seal once you made it common.

Arts

Arts are used to enhance a skill or to acquire additional attribute of a skill. They are great factors to increase skill factor.

Mystic Tomes and Attribute Points are also included in the attendance rewards. You need these to upgrade Arts.

More about Arts

Upgrading Arts

  1. Go to your Main Class NPC (Swordsman, Wizard, Cleric, Archer, Scout) and select Craft Mystic Tome.

  2. Drag the required material - Mystic Tome. Some in-game events give these as rewards, so take that opportunity.
    You can also obtain 4pcs mystic tome by consuming 2 Mystic Tome Pages and 5 Goddessess’ Blessed Gems or one Unidentified Mystic Tome.

  3. Select the sub-class where you need arts in the upper dropdown selection.

  4. Select your desired art in the second dropdown selection. You can hover in the book image to check the description of the art.

  1. Enter the number of tomes you need. Click Craft.

To use it, right click on it in your inventory. It will show a message that it requires a number of attributes, so you also need to have attribute points with every use. In-game events and contents give a lot of attribute points.

For enhanced upgrade arts, 1 tome = 1 level. You can see the applied arts in Skills and Attributes (F3). Click the skill and it will show below if arts are available for that skill.

Note that arts will not reset if you use skill reset potions. To reset arts, you need the Arts Reset Potion - available at Wings of Vaivora NPC. It will return as unidentified mystic tomes and some attribute points used will be returned as well.

Cards

Fill in your card album! Recommended for it to be 10 star (for regular cards).
For legend and goddess cards, the higher you can, the better.

More about Cards

Types of Cards and where to get them:

  • Normal cards - A monster card album will summon a random boss monster when opened and will give you either a Monster Card or Enhancement Card once you defeat it. You can buy it at Mercenary Badge Shop. There are also free ones in the daily login attendance.
  • There are also Master Cards that you can buy at Mercenary Badge Shop or can be obtained via in-game events. Attendance rewards also give these.
  • Legend cards - You can get these by chance on contents like WBR and Legend Raids.
  • Goddess cards - Can be obtained by doing Reputation. You will get here once you’ve reach Lv458 and above.

Enhancing Cards

Go to Rest mode (press Insert) and select Card Synthesis (for regular cards) or Enhance Advanced Card (for legend cards).

You may check Legendary Card Guide by Crevox for more information on Legend Cards and how to upgrade them.

Assisters

More about Assisters

Don’t forget to complete the quest at Geraldasia NPC in Klaipeda.
You can find its UI in Assister Cabinet.

image

Assister cards can be obtained via Assister Card Album. This is also available in Mercenary Badge Shop and in-game events. It is also given as a reward when you do Assister Dungeon.

You can open your Assister Card Albums via Assister Cabinet.


Assisters have different grades: Normal, Magic, Unique, Legend. The higher the grade, the better their performance will be.

Passive Effect

These are the bonus stats that you can get when you equip assisters.

  • Original Passive - the original passive of the assister in main slot.
  • Combination Passive - passive depending on the combination of property and type of the assisters.
    In the above image, I got Block bonus because I equipped Succubus and Froster Lord which are both Ice-property types. I got Critical Resistance because Maru and Ferret Marauder are both Earth-types. And got All Stats +1 because Succubus and Ferret Marauder are both Plant-types.

Some guides regarding assister bonuses:

Source: found somewhere at /r/TreeOfSavior discord - credits to the one who provided

Fusion and Evolve

Fusion - rerolling three random same-grade assisters to obtain a new random assister of the same grade (or higher grade by chance).

Evolve - leveling up your assister. You need three identical assister cards to level it up (e.g. you need 3pcs 1-star Moringponia assister cards to make it 2-star, then 3pcs 2-star to make it 3-star).

Assister Dungeon

This is also a weekly content so make sure to include on your weeklies. Assister Card Albums and Attribute Points are given as rewards upon clearing certain stages. You can enter via Contents Status Board (F10).

You may refer to the assister’s info when choosing what assisters to bring in the dungeon. Some guides with list of assister’s skills are outdated, will add here once I found an updated one.

image

Cost

This sets the limit on the grade and combination of assisters that you can equip.
Cost of an assister is identified by:

Normal grade = 1 x number of stars
Magic grade = 2 x number of stars
Unique grade = 3 x number of stars
Legend grade = 4 x number of stars

Sharing more info regarding Assister Cost from my guildmate Snipester:




List of achievements where you can get additional Costs:

Legend Set Effect

More about Legend Set Effect

You can apply set stats to Legend and Goddess equipments. Go to Professional Alchemist npc and select Apply Set Stats.

Drag your equipment, then select your desired item effect in the dropdown. It will indicate the material needed and quantity. Set stats description is shown on the right side.

In order for the 6 Set Effects to activate, you need to put set effects to all of your armors and weapons (4 armors + weapon + subweapon = 6 set).

For Vasilisa’s set effects, required material is Pamoka Solution. You can buy this at Gabija Shop.

correction: vaivora drop isnt affected by loot chance

Thank you for the correction. I already crossed out that part. Maybe loot chance can be a separate discussion or guide.

To be precise, vaivora drop from any EP12&13’s elite monster. I got my 1st vaivora from killing elites at field

I think you can get 20.000 mercenary badges by doing the Tutorial, then use this to buy 2 packs of Galimive gear and use ichor transmutation on them.

Thanks for the tip! I haven’t thought of this since I really haven’t done ichor transmutation ever since. :sweat_smile:

thanks for the guide… will be sharing it w/ friends who are new

Your assister table comes from here -TOSkemon - Assister Tips (updated day 1, month 2, year 2021)

Made by @greyhiem from itos forum or his youtube channel: ludo tos. Last seen in the forum at asio/wastrel era.

Btw, there is something wrong with his table, iirc baby skia is not holy beast category

Thank you! Will add the source.
I’m also looking for an updated assister table like that, hopefully can find since I can’t make one (too busy).

Did a massive update of this guide to cover end-game stuffs. Newbies and returnees will certainly catch up with the rewards from Settling Support Daily Attendance!

KToS dev blog also posted the future EP14 update which includes an area for newbies and returnees to start at Lv440. O_O So yea, still hoping for more players to arrive. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Source: nexon.com

Just wanted to drop in to say how much I appreciate this. As a new player, getting those boxes that jump you to max is awesome, but it also leaves me completely lost. I was getting completely smacked in Episode 13-1, and after reading this guide and following as many of the steps as I could, I was able to smash it after. Not to mention I feel like I actually know more about what the gear progression is like in this game. So thank you so much! You’ve helped me a ton.
