When it comes to playing Punball, players are going to want to grind as much Gear as they can in order to complete stages as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Though I’m a newer player to the game, I have to say that I’ve done a fairly good job grinding up, heading into Honor Gear in about a month and a half and having the newly released Artifacts up to level 5, all without spending any money.
Admittedly, players can spend money on resources such as Gems in order to get themselves duplicate Gear or even a higher chance of getting Relic Gear.
While dumping a good amount of money into the game will significantly increase your chances of improving, especially for the main stages that are available to players.
In the most recent update of Punball players were introduced to a new way of dealing damage and gaining passive skills, this is done with the help of the Sacred Altar and Artifacts.
Now, many players may not see the benefits of levelling either of these up, especially when they are smoothly running through the main stages of Punball. However, it seems like Habby is going to begin introducing more game modes that nullify any of the stats that Gear and Pets provide you in hopes of providing more variety to gameplay.
The first addition to this has been the Apollo Ruins which is an event that was focused solely on Artifacts and the passive stats that are available to players for completing the various camps available to them.
I truly enjoy this concept as it essentially puts all players on the same level, no matter how upgraded their Gear and Pets are. Though I have to admit that the Apollo Ruins were still challenging even after I dumped 100 rolls into the Artifact machine. That being said, everything became more manageable when I figured out which Pets to use as I didn’t actually realize that the Pet’s stats didn’t matter in the Apollo Ruins.
Though a player’s Pets and Gear don’t matter in the Apollo Ruins, players cannot look past the Sacred Altar and though players will not be able to benefit from the stats the Sacred Altar provides, they will unlock more slots for Artifacts up to a maximum of 3. This will not only help for the Apollo Ruins, but it really helped me dish out damage during the weekly challenges and complete more stages of the Trial Tower.
Now, for players to be able to upgrade their Sacred Altar they will need three resources one of the most limited resources being Divine Saintspar.
WHAT DO YOU USE DIVINE SAINTSPAR ON?
Divine Saintspar is a limited resource that is only used for upgrading your Sacred Altar up a tier. While players will be able to level up their Sacred Altar, every number of levels, players will no longer be able to level up until they upgrade their Sacred Altar up a tier.
Players will need to get Saintspar by completing all of the camps in the Apollo Ruins, though players will note that when they need 200 Saintspar they will only have 150 on the final tier available currently.
Now, if you’re anything like me, you’re going to question whether or not you finished everything in the Apollo Ruins, but it actually seems like Habbo meant for this to happen.
The only other way to currently obtain Divine Saintspar is by purchasing it in the monthly shop.
At the moment players are only able to purchase a maximum of 50 Divine Saintspar, though we can expect Habby to either allow players to continue purchasing them from month to month as well as release more Apollo Ruins in the future.
I have to say, it’s not going to be the most important to get your Sacred Altar up by this extra tier yet, as the benefit of having three Artifacts is the biggest one at the moment.
