Grand Summoners is a popular role-playing game (RPG) with intuitive and exciting battles. The game launched worldwide in 2018 and it continues to attract RPG enthusiasts and beginners alike. Grand Summoners pairs smooth two-dimensional (2D) anime-style graphics with hosts of colourful characters to collect.
Even though the genre is oversaturated, the game provides the most, if not all the features and content that players love to do. Grand Summoners allows players to participate in various activities and complete multiple quests.
When players first start playing the game, they will be able to roll to obtain characters. Since Grand Summoners is based on a gacha system, players cannot choose their characters. However, if players are unhappy with the characters they obtained, they can re-roll. It is important to note that rerolling requires players to reset their game data.
After obtaining a character, players will be able to progress through the main story. While completing the main quests, players can collect various resources and earn a lot of experience points (XP). If players obtain enough XP, they will be able to move onto the next rank.
It is important to note that each rank replenishes the characters energy. Players need the energy resources to participate in in-game activities. However, this does not apply to new players. Grand Summoners reduces the energy cost of the main story battles for the first few days. Players will thus be able to save their energy for later in the game.
While progressing through the main storyline, players will come across various side quests. Even though the side quests are not mandatory, players can receive a variety of rewards such as additional units. It is recommended that players maintain a balanced team of characters to complete the main storyline and the side quest.
Grand Summoners features over 100 characters, also known as units, that players can collect. The units are divided into five distinct categories based on their roles in combat. These are Healers, Breakers, Supporters, Attackers and Defenders.
The following table indicates the unit categories as well as a description of each category:
|Healers||Healers are vital units as they keep the team alive. Even though they are not crucial early in the game, they will be needed for higher level fights.|
|Breakers||Breakers are very similar to Attackers. They are also able to deal a decent amount of damage to enemies.|
|Support||Support units boost the team’s offense and defence with buffs. They are also able to weaken and inflict effects on the enemies.|
|Attackers||Attackers are expected to deal the most damage to the boss and enemy mobs. It is important to note that they do not have defensive skills and require protection from support allies.|
|Defenders||Defenders have amazing defensive abilities, not only for themselves but for the entire party. They are crucial in the battles where the need for survival exceeds the desire for a rapid victory.|
