Lord of Verminion is a minion strategy game that is available to players in the Gold Saucer in hopes of making MGP. To play the game players must use the minions they’ve acquired in the game to help battle against another player’s minions or a CPU’s minions at the same time as trying to destroy the other team’s Arcana Stones.
While players will have a variety of minions to choose from simply by completing the main story quest (MSQ), the reality is that players are going to want to spend a good portion of their time locating other Minions to make their team stronger.
Essentially in the Lord of Verminion players will be able to reveal their minion’s hidden stats which will be important when players are up against tougher minions or minions that have special effects.
Once players have a good amount of minions they would like to take in battle they will have to create a roster of minions. Players can have a maximum of 24 minions on their roster and will be able to switch them at any time when they are not in a Lord of Verminion game. Due to the versatility of the minions, I strongly recommend that you look at your minions stats every time you get a new minion as some will have large variances that will really help a player’s journey in battle.

HOW TO CHANGE MINIONS FOR LORD OF VERMINION
While I wish that changing minions for Lord of Verminion was more intuitive, the reality is that the way it is set up actually makes sense as it doesn’t require players to head to the Gold Saucer to change their minions, meaning players can always check what minions they’ve got and what stats they have.
In order to see your line-up for minions players must click the first menu option “Character” then “Gold Saucer” and then “Verminion.” Here players will see an option to edit their Verminion Hotbor where players will be able to get to see the following information:
The type of Minion (Critter, Monster, or Poppet)
HP of Minion
ATK of Minion
DEF of Minion
SPD of Minion
Auto-Attack (Single or Multi-Target)
Cost to Summon
Special Action (CC or Higher Damage)
Type of Minion (Damage, Dismantling, Enfeeblement, etc.)
Strength of Minion (Effective against Gates, Search Eyes, Shields or Arcana Stone)
The shape of damage the Minion will deal
This menu will also show what types of Minions are more effective against what Minions.
In this menu players will also be able to sort how they view Minions, whether it’s by ID, Type, Cost, HP, ATK, DEF, or SPD. Players can access this by clicking the up and down arrows under their minions.
Players are encouraged to bind their minions to hotkeys that are accessible to them so they can quickly summon them if things get overwhelming in battle. While not absolutely necessary it really proves to be helpful in the late-game.
