Seekers of Tokane Guide 📖
After an incredible effort by all teams working together for months, we can say the wait is over, and it’s time to dive into Seekers of Tokane! First things first, you’ll need to own an Aurorian NFT or an early access code for the closed alpha. For those with an early access code, you can redeem it here. Please be aware that you have to Sync your Aurorian and NFT Nefties if you want to play with them.
When you have Synced your Aurorian or redeemed your code, you’ll want to visit our Game Dashboard and sign in with a Solana (SPL) or an EVM wallet like Phantom or Metamask, or one of the social media options. Once you have done that, you can click on “Play Now” from the game dashboard and load the game!
Note: The initial loading of the game and lands can take several minutes. Once the content is loaded, the loading time should go down.
As a new player, you’ll have to create an Aurory account first. Simply visit our Website and sign up using a social media option or a wallet. You’ll get a congratulations message with a gift that appears only once. This is a starter egg that you can hatch for free with the Incubator to get yourself a brand new (off-chain/Standard) Neftie. Starter Eggs have Nefties Number 9, Blockchoy, and Dipking available.
Note: Existing accounts will also receive a free starter egg.
Avatar Creation and Customization
After you launch the game and click on ‘‘Start Adventure’’, you’ll land on the avatar selection page. This is where you create, customize, and save your avatar. Once you are done customizing your character, simply click ‘‘save’’ and then ‘‘select’’ to join Blanche. Aurorian holders will, of course, be able to select their unique characters.
You have made it to the village of Blanche! The basic controls are simply clicking once or clicking and holding wherever you want to run on the map.
Move past the arches, and you will find Kitty, who will grant you access to the Everlasting Lands. You will need to complete a Land in order to unlock PvP Blitz Battles, so follow her instructions and go through the Portal. If you make it out successfully, you will have unlocked PvP.
You will also find several elements and other NPCs in Blanche that can be clicked on to interact with, including trainers, the marketplace and swap kiosks, among other things. As you further explore the village, you will come across the Incubator. This machine was created by Sato to hatch different types of Neftie eggs and can be used in-game. Hatching Prime Nefties (NFTs) requires a fee in $AURY; the $AURY fee is dynamic, which means it will be adjusted when needed.
NPCs called “Trainers” will often have useful information about battling. They are highly motivated to achieve glory and would like nothing more than to see you show up in the arena!
The amplifier, which can be found right next to the incubator, will allow you to level up Nefties by using other Nefties of the same species. This feature not only introduces a new progression path but also serves as a mechanism to reduce the circulating supply of Prime Nefties. It's important to note that the enhancement of Nefties through this feature will significantly improve their in-game performance without any impact on their rarity. This ensures a balanced and fair gameplay experience for all players without changing rarity distribution. Neftie progression is capped at level 30, and the maximum stats that can be reached will depend on the level 1 stats of a Neftie. Amplifying will also require a fee in crystals that varies depending on the before and after level of the amplified Neftie. Some XP may be lost during the amplification process, so the total XP harvested might be different from the XP received by the target Neftie.
In v0.4, you can only level up Prime Nefties (NFTs).
The Target Neftie is the one you want to level up, and the Source Neftie is the one that gives its XP to the target Neftie by returning to the wild, unable to be recaptured.
Neftie XP will reset upon Desyncing/Selling a Neftie. Be careful amplifying Nefties you plan on trading!
The goal of crystals is to open up Aurory to new players in a risk-free manner. They will allow all players to progress and buy items without the need to have $AURY or USD. They will be used throughout our ecosystem for purchases, mostly concerning Standard (off-chain) assets, and can be used to hatch eggs, amplify Nefties, purchase items from merchants (when available), participate in tournaments, access certain fee-based game modes, and buy cosmetics in the shop. Crystals are an off-chain currency and do not hold any value outside of the game they're in. You can earn Crystals by exploring lands, battling wild Nefties, completing quests (when available), and participating in events.
Blitz Battles are exciting 1-on-1 Neftie showdowns that will be the key to success in your journey in Tokane. To start a battle against another player, you can either talk to Kitty or one of the trainers in Blanche. Click on ‘‘DETAILS’’ in the Neftie selection screen to see your Neftie’s stats and abilities. It’s recommended to check them out before going into battle. When you think you're ready, select your preferred Neftie and start the matchmaking process. If you want to skip the Neftie selection, you can click the crossed swords in the top right corner of the screen to enter matchmaking with the Neftie you have selected as your favorite.
Note: When you are in the PvP queue, you cannot enter lands.
There are two phases in Blitz Battles: the preparation phase and the resolution phase. During the preparation phase, you select actions, and during the resolution phase, all actions are executed. At the start of a battle and at the start of every preparation phase, you receive two Hype. An action is either an ability or a swap. We'll get to the swapping later!
Abilities are split into three categories: Offensive, Defensive, and Status Effects, and they can be either Elemental or Normal. The offensive abilities have a power value that is based on a Neftie's ATK to calculate the damage dealt, and the defensive abilities are based on the Nefties’ DEF stats. Some moves make your Neftie gain hype or cost 0, while others are triggered with conditions, so read them carefully!
Swapping is an action that allows you to replace your active Neftie with another one, and this can be a turning point in battles. It counts as an action, so it will cost you hype. It can be selected for any of the three action slots, which allows you to use an ability of your new Neftie on the same turn if you swap before action three. When you swap, 50% of the current hype is transferred to the new Neftie. You can also ‘‘Pass’’ actions with the button right under the Swap action.
Note: Swapping can only be done once per battle, so use it wisely!
Nefties can stack up to four status effects at the same time. If a new status effect is applied while there are already four active, the first one that was applied will be removed. You can also stack the same status effect to increase its strength (check out the arrows next to the status effect). The highest debuff is Tier -5 and will modify the stat to 50% of its original value. The highest buff is Tier +5, and it will modify the stat to 200% of its original value. Status effects stay active for a certain duration and can be removed by using Cleanse abilities.
Critical Hits and Fails
You have a 5% chance of getting a critical hit. It will increase the power by 200%.
You have a 5% chance of getting a critical fail. It will decrease the power by 50%.
Neftie elements will have major importance in battles. For example, a water Neftie like Axobubble will do extra damage to a fire Neftie like Shiba Ignite but less damage to a plant Neftie like Blockchoy. The six elements are Earth, Lightning, Wind, Fire, Plant, and Water.
In this first iteration of PvP Blitz Battles, you will earn OKA for wins as long as your Prime Neftie has Okanergy, but it’s not reflected in the rewards screen yet (coming soon). In a future version, a leaderboard and rank-based matchmaking will go live. You can only battle with NFTs, Starter, or Standard Nefties, as we won’t provide all ‘‘Default’’ Nefties anymore that you have seen in Speed Blitz. You’ll have to collect them all to play with them!
It is essential that Nefties maintain a certain coherence through all Aurory experiences while adapting to the needs of each game. In order to simplify Neftie stats for Seekers of Tokane, a Neftie's power will draw upon only four stats as opposed to six in Aurory Tactics. This makes the game easy-to-understand and accessible for all types of players.
The following Neftie attributes will be used:
• Health (HP) - The amount of damage a Neftie can take before being knocked out.
• Attack Power (AP) - The amount of damage a Neftie can deal when using attack abilities.
• Defense (DEF) - The amount of damage a Neftie can block from opponents' attacks.
• Speed (INI) - Determines which Neftie uses an action first in a battle.
The lands in this version will be either from the Arctik or Swamp biomes and chosen at random. Everything you collect will be displayed on the portal reward screen when you’ve completed a land. If you lose a battle, you will be escorted back to Blanche empty-handed. You can also exit lands or leave combat at any moment from the settings menu, but this equals defeat. When you leave a land via the portal, there will be an anti-cheat check of the reward list. Players who do not pass this check, will be sent back to the village without any of their collected rewards.
Rewards are distributed in two ways:
Crystals can be looted from plants that are scattered across.
Crystals and Prime or Standard eggs are rewarded for wins in PvE Blitz Battles. The post-battle reward screen will show you what you have won.
Drop rates for a win:
Standard Egg 10%
Prime Egg 1%
Before you start your journey
It’s worth reiterating that this is a live game that will grow into an even more exciting JRPG over time. The current version, V0.4, is the foundation on which many more amazing experiences will be built, and we can’t wait to share everything our team is cooking. We hope that you are as excited as we are about the potential of what is being built and what is to come, as the future is looking bright, and we’re grateful to have you all along for the ride. Please note that many features have yet to be released, and the game is still in early alpha, so feel free to provide feedback and suggestions in Discord! Now head over to Tokane and show your digital self, explore the biomes, level up your Nefties, and win epic Blitz Battles!
