NIER REPLICANT: TIPS AND TRICKS TO GET STARTED

NIER REPLICANT: TIPS AND TRICKS TO GET STARTED


 Nier Replicant has finally arrived and is ready to catapult you into a rich and varied world , full of side missions, powerful enemies, swords and magic. There will be countless things to do, from collecting the 120 words of power that can enhance your magic to simple but timeless fishing. With all of this content you might be scared and intimidated to approach, but that's what we're here for. By reading this piece, absolutely spoiler-free, you can have an edge. This guide is meant for beginners but contains some goodies that will certainly be of interest to veterans as well.


SAVE OFTEN

An evergreen tip, basically valid for any title without an autosave function . Nier Replicant allows the user to save his progress in the game, interacting with some steampunk- style mailboxes present in the title. It may sound silly, but knowing this might save some readers a certain amount of frustration.


BUY REGIONAL MAPS FROM THE SHOP

Upon reaching a new region or area for the first time in Nier Replicant, you will notice a small black void on both maps. This is a big deal, but it is possible to recover those details by obtaining maps of each place . Traveling from your village across the northern plains to the most advanced destinations will require the purchase, and therefore the use of a lot of money, to discover the land we will explore.

Some of them can be unlocked normally as part of the story or side missions; much more frequently, however, it is necessary to buy them at the nearest store. They really cost a trifle and they certainly won't be the ones to empty your wallet, buy them to save you a frustrating navigation and unnecessary headaches. Really, it's worth it.


COLLECT EVERYTHING, DO NOT THROW ANYTHING AWAY

Every place you visit, also thanks to the maps we talked about above, will be an infinite mine of collectible resources. Resources manifest in a very clear and classic way, shimmering areas on the ground or normal enemy rewards, still others can be obtained from hunting and fishing. Some items appear only in certain regions , others are rare and only obtainable from certain creatures. But try to make the most of the possession of these various and possible objects, do not throw anything away and keep every resource. Even the most seemingly useless things can prove to be important for the completion of primary and secondary plot objectives . These elements are also often crucial in upgrading one's weapons.


VALUE YOUR THINGS

By following this line of thinking, you will most likely end up with a huge amount of items in your inventory for a long time. If this upsets you, you can sell these items to any market to get some quick cash, but this is strongly discouraged. Let's try to understand, if you kill a certain animal for 3 days ending up with 1000 copies of its drop in the inventory then go ahead and sell the excesses, but try to keep a certain amount of each item with you. Selling things out is never convenient  and you will never be able to know for sure if a particular item will come in handy in the future.


DON'T IGNORE THE SIDE MISSIONS

The side missions in Nier Replicant are exactly like in most Action RPGs. However, these missions are very important within the work . They fill the storyline by adding details and force you, in a sense, to explore the entirety of the game world. But above all they are a great way to make money: in the game, there is the possibility of totaling almost ten thousand gold coins just by completing the missions of the initial village.


REMEMBER TO CONSISTENTLY ASSIGN WORDS

After meeting Grimoire Weiss, you can start collecting upgrades, using the power of magic and collecting Words . These are a way of empowering your weapon attack, magic attacks, and martial defensive techniques. You may get some words in a fight , when you are distracted by the charm of the battle and in the heart of the action. So try to get into the habit of constantly checking if you have equipped the strongest or most suitable words for the current game situation.


WATCH OUT FOR THE SECOND HALF

Perhaps the least beginner tip of this guide but a really crucial thing to know. The Nier Replicant story  is divided into two halves . When you reach the second one you will certainly notice it, it is a very important moment in history and you cannot fail to notice it. But know that it will never be possible to go back. This means that it is really important that you complete all the missions and collect all the weapons and consumables from the first part before continuing on to the second. Sure you will have the opportunity to replay the title, but know that you could even foreclose on endings for too much negligence.
