Followers have unique personal skills, currently implemented: warrior, fighter, doctor, forager and scared.

  • Doctors can fight with swords and also heal you if your health is under 30%. They can also try to save you before you collapse.
  • Warriors do more damage to monsters and are able to fight with swords and use critical defense fists in combat. They can also upgrade their swords.
  • Foragers can forage and occasionally share their findings with you.
  • Scared can be scared, screech and jump away when they see a monster, but don't worry, they can still fight (if they have a fighter skill). Mostly this "negative" skill is compensated by more powerful buffs.
  • Fighters are less powerful than warriors. They can level up and sync with player, and can upgrade their swords. It's a secondary skill, in most cases is assigned with any other skill.

Followers Unique Skills~


Two gameplay modes: Adventure (default) and Classic~
