Each time the game begins, you will set out on a journey with one of the many available heroes possessing unique abilities. Some heroes have powerful attack skills, while others are responsible for keeping your party's HP up. You can collect certain items to develop your heroes, and they will gain new abilities as they grow. Along with your card deck, heroes have a major impact on game strategy.
Like the heroes in other strategy card games, those of Destiny or Fate cannot be "directly controlled". However, players can use a hero's unique skills each time they play its card as long as they meet certain specified conditions, meaning players can strategically choose how and when they want to activate their skills.
In addition, a hero's passive skills benefit the entire party, not just the hero alone.
Strategically Build Your Own Party
Excluding bosses, each and every monster you encounter during your adventure can be recruited to your party. Recruit monsters with skills that have caused you trouble so you can do the same thing to the next opponent you meet in battle. Just like with heroes, you can collect certain items to develop your monsters, and as they grow they may gain new abilities.
With your unique deck of cards, your hero, and the newly recruited monsters you own, you can make a party suited to your own individual strategy and set out on an epic adventure. Of course, it is extremely difficult to really achieve the perfect combination that you've imagined on paper. For that to happen, you will need a lot of hard work... and a little luck.
