What Are Soul Linkers?
An Ally To Join You In Battle
|Unlock Condition||Clear Chapter 1-37|
Soul Linkers are an NPC ally which helps you fight against enemies by supporting you in battle. They can have a variety of unique abilities, as well as their own strengths and weaknesses that make them more suited for particular game modes.
Increase Stats via Placement Effect
All Soul Linkers have a Placement Effect, which means that when you put them in your party you get a particular stat bonus. You can have up to 3 Soul Linkers equipped at once, which means you can choose what stats you want to boost by bringing the right type of Soul Linker.
Require Vigor To Fight With You
Soul Linkers expend a resource called vigor when fighting alongside you. The amount consumed depends on the rarity of the Soul Linker, but it only decreases during combat. Don't fret, however - you will be able to recover Vigor using special potions!
How To Get Soul Linkers
Get From Soulstars
In general, Soul Linkers can be obtained by opening up Soulstars! Depending on the type of Soulstar the contents inside will change. There are of course some exceptions, like Hannemorin, who joins you as a part of the main story.
How To Get Soulstars
Soulstars can be obtained as quest rewards and drops from enemies, as well as rewards from world bosses or the Dark Presence adventure. In some cases, you can even get them from region quests or check in bonuses, so make sure you do a wide variety of content every day and don't forget to claim your rewards!
Types of Soulstars
There are quite a few varieties of Soulstars available. With the exception of Upgrade Material and Exp Soulstars, there are a total of 4 Soulstars from which you can get new characters.

How To Power Up Soul Linkers
Methods of Strengthening Soul Linkers
|・Equip all 3 types of items on them|
・Level them up
・Equip a passive skill
・Level up their Skills
・Equip Attribute Runes
・Use Bind to get higher rarity Soul Linkers
Equip 3 Types Of Items
It's possible to equip gear on your Soul Linkers! Each one can equip a pair of gloves, some armor, and an accessory. All of these will increase your Soul Linker's stats, so you'll want to make sure you gear them up ASAP!
Leveling Up Equipment
Note that it's also possible to level up the equipment your Soul Linkers are wearing. Don't forget to do this too!
Level Up Your Soul Linkers
Soul Linkers can be leveled up by using other Soul Linkers as exp materials! A Soul Linker's stats will greatly increase when they level up, so you'll definitely want to get rid of lower grade Soul Linkers to upgrade your rarer ones!
Equip A Passive Skill
Yuo can assign specific passive skills to your Soul Linkers! These passives will depend on the specific "type" of your Soul Linker, and they can be obtained from the Battle Royale Shop.
Powering Up Passives
It's also possible to upgrade the level of your passive skills. This can be done by using up Gold and Topaz, which are also obtained from Battle Royales.
Level Up Skills As Well
Skills are one of the main ways that Soul Linkers deal damage. Just like passive skills, you can use Topaz (obtainable in the Battle Royale mode) and Gold to level these up.
Possible To Swap Skills
From the Soul Linker screen, you'll be able to swap existing skills to one of 5 possible options, though doing so will cost you Diamonds. If you find that your Soul Linker's current passive isn't ideal for them, you should feel free to change it!
Equip Attribute Runes
Equipping Attribute Runes on your Soul Linker will increase both your main character and your Soul Linker's stats, letting you deal even more damage. You'll be able to equip a maximum of 5 runes, making for a huge potential stat increase.
Upgrade Attribute Runes
It's also possible to upgrade individual Attribute Runes. Doing so is quite efficient and will give you a great return on investment in terms of stat increases, so we recommend prioritizing this!
Upgrading Soul Linkers
By choosing a Rare ★3-4 or Heroic ★5-6 Soul Linker and then expending two of that same type of Soul Linker, you can upgrade your Soul Linker to the next rank! This means that you should be able to easily level up easy-to-get Soul Linkers!
By using up 2-3 Soul Linkers of the same rarity, you can have a chance to create a new Soul Linker of a higher rarity. If you fail to get one, your chance of getting one next time will increase, so you'll definitely want to use up existing Soul Linkers to do this!
