PHANTOM CHRONICLE is a card battle game where you use a variety of cards called "Phantoms" in simple, yet engaging, fast-paced battles.
Basic play is free.
However, some items that can aid you on your quest are available for purchase.
PHANTOM CHRONICLE RUSH FIRE currently supports English and Japanese.
This game has been tested on the following operating systems.
We do not guarantee that this game will operate correctly on other operating systems.
There are no age or money limits on item purchases. Please purchase items responsibly and in moderation.
e-Crystals are special items that can be used as continues (during battle) or to obtain higher-grade cards.
Though you can obtain these by playing the game, purchasing them lets you obtain lots at once.
You need a certain amount of stamina to embark on a quest. If you do not have enough stamina, either wait for a while or use e-Crystals/items to recover your stamina.
If you lose a battle, you can use an e-Crystal to continue playing.
Your stamina will recover naturally over time, but you can also use e-Crystals or special items to recover faster.
You will not be able to proceed to the next quest or area until you have completed each step in the most recent quest you are currently playing, at least once.
In the world of PHANTOM CHRONICLE, cards are storage devices that are used to preserve or revive various genetic information, and more.
The kind of creatures that were once limited to the realm of fantasy are stored in cards, ready to fight alongside you and aid you in your quest.
There are Phantom cards that are used in battle, as well as useful item cards that aid you on your quest.
You can have up to 5 Phantoms engage in a battle; this is called your deck.
Go to the CARDS -> DECK screen to edit your deck.
All Phantoms have a certain "cost" to them. If the total combined cost of your Phantoms exceeds your cost capacity, they cannot be put in your deck.
Your cost capacity increases as your player rank rises.
Once you sell a card or use it as fusion material, you cannot restore it.
You can prevent mistakes by selecting the cards you do not want to sell or fuse, and click "LOCK" on the CARDS screen.
Placing a "LOCK" on the cards you do not want to sell or use as fusion material prevents you from doing so accidentally.
フThese are special techniques that Phantoms can use, mainly during battle. They fall into two categories - leader skills, which trigger automatically when a Phantom becomes leader, and skills that trigger every so often during battle.
You can obtain cards from quests and battles. You can also use Guild Points or e-Crystals to Summon cards from SUMMON on the HOME screen.
You can increase your card capacity by using e-Crystals. Go to the SHOP screen to upgrade your capacity.
Go to the CARDS -> LEVEL UP screen to level up your Phantom. You can also bring it along on quests to accumulate experience points and raise its level.
Go to the [Cards] > [Level Up] screen to strengthen your existing phantoms. Be aware that any phantoms you set as Material will disappear after strengthening your chosen phantom. Levelling up requires Cores.
On the CARDS screen, press the ITEM Button to view all your items.
These indicate the rarity of the card.
The order of rarity, from least to most rare, is "N"->"R"->"SR"->"UR"->"L." Latent abilities also increase in that order.
Go to the CARDS -> SELL screen to sell unnecessary cards in exchange for Cores.
Summons are a system in which you can use Guild Points or e-Crystals to obtain a random new card.
Go to the Summon screen to perform a summon.
You can obtain Friend Points by receiving them from friends or as quest rewards.
With Normal Summons, you use Friend Points to summon a Phantom. Advanced Summons, on the other hand, involve using e-Crystals to summon an "R" or higher Phantom. View "Check Details" to see which Phantoms you can summon using each method.
You can send friend invites to users you have taken along as a guest on a quest. If the user accepts the invite, you become friends.
You can send an invite to real-life friends by going to the HOME screen > [Friends] > [Search] and inputting the person's friend code. Friend codes are displayed on the [Search] screen, so have your real-life friend tell you their code.
There is a limit to how many friends you can add, determined by your player rank. The maximum number of friends is 50.
Go to "Message" via the HOME screen to receive any pending gifts.
Some messages disappear after a certain period of time.
After that period of time, you can no longer receive your gift.
You can turn the music and sound effects on or off by going to [Menu] > [Options].
Tap the MENU button in the upper-right of the battle screen, and the quit confirmation screen will appear.
Note that if you quit a battle or quest, you will keep any card experience points earned, but you will lose all other rewards.
PHANTOM CHRONICLE RUSH FIRE uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC 0:00).
Depending on how you fight, you can defeat enemies stronger than you, but you may also lose to enemies weaker than you.
Until you are accustomed to how battles work, keep using Will o' the Wisp's skill to help you out. Other good Phantoms include those with skills that attack multiple enemies at once, or restore all your allies' HP. Try to find these!
If a Phantom's HP gets low during battle, replace it with one with higher HP. Also, when a Phantom is placed behind another, it takes damage less frequently.
Arrange Phantoms according to their attributes!
For instance, placing a water Phantom in front of a fire-element enemy will reduce the damage it takes, and increase the damage it delivers!
Dodge enemy skills!
When an enemy is about to use a skill, its predicted attack range will appear. Before it uses the skill, move any Phantoms in range to safety, or replace them with stronger Phantoms!
Skill combos deliver increased damage!
After damaging an enemy with a skill, if you damage it again within a certain amount of time, the damage amount will be boosted. Unleash multiple skills one after the other for greater damage.
Strengthen your Phantoms!
Replay quests you have already completed and train up the Phantoms in your deck, or strengthen Phantoms by fusing cards!
Quests marked with a cave icon contain many enemies, so these are best for training up the Phantoms in your deck. You will do even better if there is a Bonus EXP event going on at the time!
When fusing cards, use materials with a lot of EXP. Examples include the Red Tome, Red Grimoire, or Red EXP Gem Phantoms, and certain items and Training Programs sometimes received when completing a quest.
When selecting materials for fusing cards, if you have two low-level Phantoms, first fuse them together to create a higher-level Phantom. This can be used to greater effect in another fusion.
Rely on powerful guests or friends, or obtain stronger Phantoms through Advanced Summons, events, and boss drops!
Take note of the effects of leader skills. Using a friend's leader skill or rearranging your Phantoms can give you a major advantage.
If you still cannot win, just keep continuing and push your way through! Good luck!
