After unlocking the sages and making them your companion, you will get a covenant. It is stored in key items and you can use this to call the target sage at any time.

Sage Abilities & How To Use

Tulin Ability & How To Use

Blow Away Small Enemy

The impact in combat is minimal but it can blow away small enemies. Since there is no damage even if it hits the wind, it is recommended to use it to create an advantage in a group battle.

Increase Flight Distance When Using Paraglider

You can use abilities in the air when paragliding so it is useful when you want to cover more distance while gliding. Since it takes time to move during paragliding, using it repeatedly can significantly extend the flight distance and only consume less amount of stamina wheel.

Yunobo Ability & How To Use

Damage With Fire Attack

Yunobo's skill is to perform a charging attack while wrapped in flames. It can be used as a simple attack or when you want to burn some gimmicks such as thorns.

Can Be Used To Destroy Obstacles

It is useful not only as an attack but also for destroying obstacles. For example, you can destroy multiple rocks in one go without using a hammer and reducing the durability of your weapon.

Sidon Ability & How To Use

Conjures A Shield For Protection

Sidon has the ability to produce a water barrier. This barrier can block a one-hit attack even from the boss, and this is highly recommended if you want to fight safely.

Can Allow Weapon To Make Long-Raneg Attacks

Swinging your weapon while Sidon's skill is activated makes the barrier disappear then releases a shockwave that can penetrate & defeat enemies simultaneously.

Riju Ability & How To Use

Provides Additional Electric DMG to Enemies Hit By A Bow Within The Field

When using Riju's skill, a lightning field can be deployed. When using a bow & arrow within the field's range, lightning strikes to the point of impact. This is powerful as a source of damage, especially in boss battles as it deals the same damage as weather-related lightning.

Lightning Field Disappears After One Attack

After lightning strikes once, the field disappears. Remember that it is not possible to perform consecutive attacks with the lightning field and it takes about 10 seconds until the next skill can be used.

How To Upgrade Sage?

Collect 4 Sage's Will And Deliver To Goddess Statue

Collect 4 Sage

One sage can be upgraded by collecting four Sage's Will and offering them to the Goddess Statue. Upgrade the sage according to your preference and playstyle because it enhances Sage's attack power.
