Granado Espada has a pretty steep learning curve, as most old MMORPGs do. On top of that, it’s one of a very few games of its genre that actually has you controlling more than one character at a time.
So instead of leveling up your adventurer, you instead focus more on your collective family level. But how does that work?
Leveling Up in Granado Espada
Each character you own has its own level. These work exactly like in every other RPG – you get enough experience, you level up. But on top of that, you have what is called a Family Level, which is much more important.
Your family level depends on the number of characters you have in your family and their level. Each character takes up a spot in your family Barracks. Each Barrack holds 9 characters, but you can buy up to 24 barracks, though the more you purchase, the more they will cost you.
Quantity Over Quality
The thing is, Family Level is much more important than Character Levels because each family level up will give you more points to use in the Family Attribute Temple. Distributing those will have an effect on every character you own – which means you should aim to get as many characters as you can, even if you’re not going to improve them right now. They’re just there to boost your family level.
Unique and Stock Characters
However, remember that every duplicate of the character you already own gives less Family Experience. Try to get as many unique characters as you can, and keep in mind that stock characters count twice for each gender.
In fact, if you want to level up quickly, the best way is to fill up your barracks with stock characters immediately for Family Experience, and get rid of them once you’ll get a unique character that can fill their place. But this can make you so overpowered early in the game that it might suck out the entire fun of the game, so do it at your own risk.
Terraria: Labor of Love | Shimmer Guide
One of the things that stand out in the Labor of Love Content is the Shimmer Liquid which has now become available early in the game.
In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.
In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.
Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.
In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.
Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria
The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.
Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items
Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.
Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.
Try throwing different items to see their results
NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
