The creators of Genshin Impact miHoYo bring yet another game, a visual novel – Tears of Themis. It’s about a lawyer investigating crime and fighting cases. A romance/detective-based game, where you play as an upstart lawyer tangled in a case involving 4 individuals – a psychologist Vyn Richter, the rich and famous Marius von Hagen, and detective Luke Pearce. The game plays out on how you use your skills and gain expertise to cultivate relations with them.
The game itself is not very difficult to understand, it even comes with its own briefing guide. As soon as you begin the game, it starts off with a tutorial, and following that the game begins.
This here is a beginner’s guide for players who are new to the game; it contains all you need to know to get a hang of Tears of Themis before you get started.
Tears of Themis Tips and Tricks:
1 Be thorough with stories and do not skip them
I would recommend players to play close attention to the story mode as it plays out. The story will unfold in the mode of chapters. If you do not pay attention or skip them understanding the plot and future chapters will become difficult; and may result in not being able to solve the case.
2 Do not forget to collect your rewards
Players receive rewards for completing chapters, so I’d recommend not skipping them. Apart from that, there are server launch rewards for all players in the in-game mail. There are rewards waiting for players in the events section as well. Players can also take part in quests, and tasks for additional rewards.
3 Understand the basics of debating
The objectives of the debates are to debunk your opponent’s arguments, this lowers their HP’s. There are 3 different colored cards that decide the strength of your argument – red, blue, green. Players should understand that blue cancels red, red cancels green, and green cancels blue.
4 Level up all your cards
Do not ignore your weaker cards. It’s even recommended to take cards that aren’t maxed out; as it helps to increase the experience points of the cards.
5 Use Magnifying Glass to detect clues
There is a magnifying glass on the top left corner of the game screen. Players need to look in multiple different places while searching for clues; it is here when the magnifying glass comes in handy. This helps player to find clues faster and get over with the mission quicker.
6 Use different cards for different situations
Debates come in waves. It’s really important to understand what card gets you higher points. I would recommend players to use weaker cards in the first round; and the higher powered cards can be used in the later rounds to score over the opponents.
7 S-Chips and AP Management
One of the most recurring obstacles in the game players will face is the AP or the games energy. Players can replenish their energy by drinking energy drinks. Another option is using S-Chips to refill your energy bar; though that is not recommended. Each step asks a certain amount of AP in exchange of moving forward in the game. Once you run out you either use energy drinks or spend chips or wait for it to refill on its own.
Hope this Beginners Guide of Tears of Themis helps you in better getting a hold of its gaming mechanism and a chance to uncover mysteries and win duels in this visual novel/card-based gameplay.
