■ Dungeon Exploration

Dungeon Exploration

There are numerous ruins and dungeons in the vicinity of the trade city Kazan. Although they are inhabited by dangerous monsters, you can obtain “Remnants” of ancient artifacts and the materials necessary to forge them by exploring.

Dungeon Talk

Characters will sometimes start conversations while you are exploring a dungeon. This system is called “Dungeon Talk” and will include a great variety of topics that liven up the adventure, including hobbies, tastes, arguments, and even certain characters’ secrets. Characters will react in various ways depending on your progress in the story and dungeon.

Useful Exploration Features

“Automatic Movement” is a handy feature for moving to places you have already been in a dungeon. It quickly and automatically moves the player to the intended destination via the fastest route.

There are also “Safe Areas” on each dungeon floor, where you can save your game, teleport to other floors’ Safe Areas, or return to Kazan.

Remnants

Remnants are ancient artifacts that lie in wait in dungeons that can be equipped to Remnant Slots on weapons and armor, which exhibit effects such as increasing stats, resistance, and more. Remnants can be obtained from dungeon treasure chests, monster drops, or through Remnant Forging.

Remnant Forging

You can acquire new Remnants through Remnant Forging at Yildiz’ Magical Shop. When forging, random effects will be given to the Remnant, and its effect will change based on your Forge Rank.

Upgrading Weapons and Armor

You can strengthen your weapons and armor to increase their stats by using materials obtained in the dungeon at the Blacksmith Sunbel shop. Additionally, when you strengthen a weapon or armor to a certain level, its number of Remnant Slots will increase.

Wizard's Symphony

Wizard’s Symphony is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch in Japan on February 28, 2019.
