Use Middleman's Service To Acquire or Dust Cells
Get Specific Cells From The Middleman
Since most Cells are acquired via chance, the Middleman allows you to select a specific Cell he has on stock in exchange for Platinum or Aetherdust. His stock changes on a weekly basis.
"Dust" Unwanted Cells To Convert to Aetherdust
If you have plenty of unwanted Cells as a result of your farming, you can destroy them and convert them to Aetherdust, a process otherwise known as "Dusting".
Fuse Cells To Upgrade Cells
Fusing Cells is a service offered by the Middleman to upgrade Cells that you have. It consumes 2 cells you have in your inventory, and upgrades them to a higher level. However, there are rules that govern Fusion, which will determine what you will receive after the Fusion.Check Out How To Fuse Cells Here!
