How to Play Thunder Duel - Features

When you speak to the Thunder Dragon to participate in the Thunder Duel, you will have two different options titled "Combat" and "Hypnea" . Each of the options allows you to repeat the battles against the final bosses, or the trials of the spirit of the Hypneas, which you have already carried out so far. 

How to Play Thunder Duel - Features

  • In the Combat section the challenge consists of winning a total of 10 consecutive combats (or 12 if you are playing the game in Hero mode).
  • You can choose to start by fighting a boss of your choice (one you fight at the beginning of the game, in the middle, or at the end).
  • After selecting and winning the first match, the Thunder Dragon will allow you to continue battling random bosses or stand right now to receive a reward.
  • Keep in mind that throughout the challenge of the fighting your life will always be the same with which you entered at the beginning, that is, if you lose hearts, they do not replenish between combat (unless you get one in the battle scenarios ).
  • Also in each fight you will only have the objects that you originally had when you fought for the first time in the adventure against each boss and you will not be able to access your saddlebag .
  • The Thunder Dragon will allow you to carry the shield of your choice during the Thundering Duel (although be careful, because the resistance indicator of the shield is maintained from one fight to another and can end up broken).

In the Hypnea section, you can repeat any of the four spirit trials adventure to collect the 15 respective tears from each area.
Depending on the time it takes to complete a Hypnea, you will receive a different reward.
The characteristics of the Hypneas are identical to the original time you completed them.
You can take advantage of the repetition of Hypneas to get dark jewels ( the treasure that only appears in these sections of the game).
