You can power up your party by leveling up with experience points, equipping better weapons (which changes your fighting style), unlocking nodes on the Mana Circle and building various structures at the Halidom, a holy castle that acts as your personal camp.
Players can also summon characters, dragons or Wyrmprint (cards used to enhance party members) using the in-game currency Wyrmite or Diamantium — which is purchasable within the game using real-world money.
You can pre-register and sign up using your Nintendo Network ID or register your email address on the App Store or Google Play. If you pre-register now and more than 500,000 users sign up, you’ll get up to 1,500 Wyrmite when you start the game.
