Game Mechanics

Elemental Raiders brings a new genre to the table: a turn-based Hero battler system where players manage a team of three Heroes with different skills, while sharing the same Mana pool.Every turn, players decide the skills they want to use for any of their Heroes with a maximum of 4 skills per turn.You can choose multiple skills on the same Hero or save the Mana for later turns.Players start with three Mana points and gain more Mana each round, increasing the amount of Mana points received per round.

Skill Order

The order of the Skills is resolved through a priority system:

  • There are two phases, the Instant Phase and the Regular Phase. Instant Skills are played first, and after that comes the Regular Phase.
  • At the start of each match, a random player receives the priority emblem. Having the emblem means that the first skill that is selected will be resolved first, then the other player will resolve his first skill, and so on with 1-1 order.
  • Once a round is completed, the priority emblem moves to the other player, changing the order of the skills for the next round.

Powers

On Elemental Raiders, the Gods will give you extra powers while playing. Every two rounds on PvP and ten rounds on PvE you obtain a power given by Gods:

  • You will choose between three powers and both players have the same list of powers displayed.
  • Powers have rarity, and they can affect both your Heroes, your enemy Heroes or your skills.

End of Match

When a Hero reaches 0 Health Points(HP) as a result of enemy attacks, the Hero disappears and cannot play any other skills during the game. If players miss a skill due to the death of a Hero or a status effect, the Mana won’t be wasted and they will be able to use this Mana on their next round.The first player that defeats all enemy Heroes wins the match.

Economy

Elemental Raiders has a two-layer design. The first and most important layer is the Free-to-Play one.Elemental Raiders is a fully enjoyable and competitive game that can be played for free.Players can join PvE scenarios and PvP matches to win rewards that will enable them to level up their skills and increase their overall team power.

Elemental Raiders incorporates a unique F2P-P2E bridging system that enables players to monetize the time they invested in the game.As gamers, we understand that playing a game requires dedication. In Elemental Raiders, we value and appreciate that dedication. That's why the game includes an NFT minting option for Free-to-Play players, which allows them to mint their levelled skills and trade them.

Players that convert their non-NFT skills into NFT skills can sell them in the marketplace for $GGT tokens. Alternatively, they may wish to hold on to their $GGT to obtain Arena Tickets, so they can opt to receive Elemental Crystals as a reward for winning PvP.Play-and-Earn players follow the same system as Free-to-Play players, with the difference that they can earn Elemental Crystals by competing and engaging with game content.

Arena Tickets

To obtain Arena Tickets, players need to invest in the Elemental Raiders Ecosystem by holding $GGTs or buying NFTs.Every time a player engages in a PvP match:

  • If the player has an Arena Ticket and wins, they are rewarded with Elemental Crystals.
  • If the player DOESN'T have an Arena Ticket, they don't receive Elemental Crystals.

There are two ways to obtain Arena Tickets and become a Play-to-Earn player:

  • The account must hold a required in-wallet amount of $GGT during an Elemental Raiders season. The tokens will be frozen until the end of the season, which lasts 60 days.
  • If the player’s account holds NFTs, they will also obtain Arena Tickets.

The total number of Arena Tickets can not exceed 50, except if you hold an Arena Gold Ticket from the Runaria God’s Founder Chest.
