AoM Gameplay 2 — Resource Collection
If you are one of those traditional backseat gamers looking for a more relaxed experience of Ankots of Misteria, or if you are one of those with a keen eye for hunting treasure, then the PVE Exploration and Treasure Hunt game modes are the perfect fit for you. In this mode, Ankot Tamers can use their Ankots to hunt for valuable resources in magical pieces of land all over Misteria. Who knows what they might find on their mini adventures?
In the PVE Exploration and Treasure Hunt game mode, players can use Ankots from their collection to explore pieces of land that they own. These pieces of land are unique and contain multiple treasures, and an Ankot Tamer must own at least ONE of these NFTS in order to play these game modes. The chosen Ankots then embark on a journey to discover the magical lands within Misteria in search for valuable treasures. There are two major classes of treasures (or resources) that Ankots can find in the Exploration game mode — Stones and Spirits.
Stones or Stones of Essence are strange rocks that are spread across Misteria and are elemental in nature. Stones come in various shapes and properties and belong to one of four distinct elements — Fire, Water, Wind and Earth. Ankots are strangely drawn to these Stones and collect them if found. Spirits are ethereal creatures that reside within the lands of Misteria and cause mischief and havoc within their surroundings. There are a large number of distinct classes of Spirits within Misteria. Ankots enjoy chasing and capturing these mischievous Spirits and bringing them to their Tamers.
Only one Ankot can explore a single piece of land at a time. Once an Ankot Tamer has assigned an Ankot for Exploration, they cannot use it in Arena Battles or in Exploration of other lands. The longer an Ankot has been sent for Exploration, the more treasures it can collect and bring back to its tamer on return. Ankots sent on long Explorations are also more likely to bring back rare treasures.
The PVE Exploration game mode grants players various rewards when played. Players can use the treasures collected and brought to them through the Exploration game mode to earn valuable assets. Stones collected from the game mode can be used to craft Orb NFTs with powerful abilities by visiting the in-game Blacksmith, and Spirits captured upon an Ankot’s Exploration can be cleansed at the Shrine to create Love Spirits or LVS — a valuable token that players can use within and outside of the game.
Crafting the best Orbs and earning valuable LVS, however, is not an easy task. It requires players to collect all the different types and classes of Stones and Spirits spread in different lands. To make things easier, players can visit the Mistery Mart and exchange their resources with other players or directly purchase their required Stones or Spirits in exchange for ANKT and LVS tokens.
Ankots and Lands
Misteria is a strange and magical land, an outsider creature such as a Tamer may only see what Misteria herself allows. However, Ankots are creatures of Misteria themselves and, thus, have a way to find things that are often missed by a Tamer’s eyes.
The Exploration game mode rewards the synergistic utilization of both Ankot and Land NFTs by players. Players that carefully select the right Ankot and task it to explore the right land are rewarded with greater and much faster collection of resources. This is because Ankots and Land NFTs both have unique attributes and elemental makeups that make each of them distinct from other such NFTs. For example, lands may only offer those stones for collection that possess a similar elemental attribute as the particular Ankot. Similarly, the unique attributes of Ankots have a significant effect on the collection of resources in the Exploration game mode. The body parts of Ankots affect the collection speed of various Stones, while the natures of Ankots impact the collection speed of Spirits. Playing the PVE Exploration game mode, therefore, requires Tamers to own at least ONE of each Ankot and Land NFT.
Synergy and Strategy
As mentioned earlier, Ankots of Misteria is a game that has a tactical focus and rewards strategic and skilled gameplay. This is evident in both of its major game modes — Arena Battles and Exploration. While Arena Battles requires players to strategically select their Ankots and place them on the battle board, Exploration requires players to choose the best Ankot to send on the right piece of land for a rewarding adventure.
The game also rewards synergy between NFTs that players can own. This is derived from the correlation between the two game modes — Arena Battles and Exploration. Players collect resources from the Exploration game mode and combine them to create Orbs or LVS.
Orbs can then be used directly in Arena Battles to power up Ankots. Similarly, LVS can be utilized to breed new Ankots and build upon a strong battle lineup, in the case of LVS.
This goes one step further when considering that the Orbs crafted as a result of Stone collection are likely to have a similar elemental makeup as the Tamer’s Ankot lineup since an Ankot’s body part is a core factor in stone discovery and collection speed.
Therefore, Ankot Tamers are encouraged to strategically choose, trade, breed or craft their various NFTs to have the best possible gaming experience but also to maximize their earnings from Ankots of Misteria.
