💠 Resonance Skill:  a combat ability that a Resonator can use with effects ranging from dealing damage to healing your allies. This ability has a cooldown and can not be used back to back.
💠 Resonance Liberation:  the strongest combat ability. To use Resonance Liberation, it must first be charged through certain combat actions such as dealing damage to enemies or triggering Extreme Evasion. It must also be recharged after every use.
💠 Forte Circuit: an ability that is unique for every Resonator. It is represented by a gauge above the health bar. Once it is available, it will change into the color of that Resonator’s Element and will gain a waveform-like appearance. It can be activated using the right abilities while it is available.

💠 To ascend a Resonator, you will need to gather materials from Boss Challenges and collect materials from enemies and plants in the overworld.
💠 Your Union Level (Account Level) will also determine how many times you can ascend a Resonator.
What are Fortes?
💠 Fortes are a skill upgrade tree that each Resonator has.
💠  Unlocking and upgrading the nodes in a Resonator’s Forte will give stat bonuses, extra passive abilities, and enhancements to their 5 Skills.
💠  Can be upgraded by using materials obtained by completing Forgery Challenges, Weekly Challenges, and killing overworld enemies.
💠 The ability to upgrade Fortes is tied to your Resonator’s Ascension, so you will need to level your Resonator first before being able to upgrade their Fortes.

💠 Resonance Chain enhances Resonator’s abilities or gives them new passive bonuses.
💠 Each Resonator has 6 Resonance Chain upgrades, each upgrade giving different bonus.
💠  Resonance Chain upgrades can be unlocked by obtaining duplicate copies (Wavebands) of the Resonator from Convenes (Gacha Pulls) or through in-game missions and events.
💠 You can buy Wavebands from the in-game shop using a currency you obtain from pulling, the shop limits the amount of Wavebands you can buy to 2 per character.
What are Resonator weapons?
💠 A type of equipment that all Resonators can equip and they provide stat bonuses and a new passive to the Resonator.

💠  Each Weapon has a Weapon ability which is a passive bonus. A Weapon Ability starts at Rank 1 and can be upgraded to Rank 5 by using the Synthesis function.
💠 To use the Synthesis function, you will need to expend duplicate Weapons of the one that you are upgrading. Each duplicate Weapon that you use will increase the Weapon’s Ability Rank by 1.
💠 Any Weapons used as a Synthesis material will be consumed and destroyed. Increasing the Rank of a Weapon Ability will enhance some or all of the numerical portion of the bonus that it provides.
💠 Weapons can only be equipped if the Resonator can use that weapon type.
What are Echoes?
💠 Echoes are the other type of equipment in this game and serve the function of armor and accessories in a traditional RPG game.
💠  Equipping Echoes to your Resonator will give them stat increases from HP to ATK to Energy Regeneration.
💠  Echoes will give your Resonators the main bulk of their stat increases.
💠  Every Echo has an active Echo ability.
💠  There are 5 total Echo slots. The Echo equipped in the first slot will have its active Echo Ability available for you to use. The order of the rest does not matter.

I hope this is not too much gacha like Genshin and tower of fantasy. If there is. Then I will play it for 30 minutes and never play it ever again. Gacha games are the worst games, period.
