It goes without saying that rupees are really important in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, especially when you’ve beaten the game and are trying to raise all of your fighters to their max level of 100. Of course, you need rupees to purchase materials and fuse weapons, too. Before we go ahead with the guide, keep in mind that some of the methods I have listed here are best used after you beat the game. No spoilers here, by the way, so if you’re trying to avoid them, you’re all good to keep reading!
Thanks to jozz, who was able to provide us with character IDs, we’ve been able to access the Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, and Byleth amiibo files three months early. Which means we’ll have plenty of time to get fully accurate training guides all done up before the figures are even released! This follows Joker and Hero being spoofed two months early. Needless to say, we’re going to be working hard training up these new characters and seeing what they can do. Stay tuned for updates!
Our community is certainly an interesting one. It’s the only metagame players can participate in without actually being present! Participating in our tournaments might seem difficult at first, but when you get the hang of it, it’s actually really easy. Basically, using Amiibo Powersaves or an NFC-compatible mobile device, you can extract the training data from your amiibo (without modifying the figure’s chip) in the form of a .bin file, which you can then send to a tournament host via email or DM. There’s a bit more to it than that, though, so let’s talk all about it!
At the time of writing, Sephiroth isn’t “officially” available to players just yet — to play as him before his release on December 22, you’ll have to beat the Sephiroth Challenge, which we detailed in our short guide. Unfortunately, it’s probably going to be a long time before we see a Sephiroth amiibo, but that won’t stop us from trying to predict what his presence might look like in our current metagame.
Sure, we’ll do one of these posts for Steve and Min Min, too, but they’re not very popular right now. We’ve got to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, so today we’re talking about Sephiroth’s kit and what his Figure Player might be able to do with it. The short answer is that we think he’ll be mid-tier at the absolute worst, and top-tier at best. Let’s go into that in a bit more detail!
Things have been really busy here lately! Between all the articles we’ve making on Sephiroth’s announcement and otherwise, our wiki updates would be buried if it weren’t for these update posts! Today, we’ve got five more amiibo Wiki updates: Luigi, Zelda, Mewtwo, Chrom, and Roy! This wave of updates focused on characters rather than concepts, so if you’re interested in any of these, feel free to check them out!
The Hero wiki page was very slightly updated as well. Nothing too major there, just a quick mention of the fact that Critical Hit ↑ doesn’t stack with Hero’s built-in critical hits. In other news, we have a contact form again! If you’re too shy to join our Discord server, you can send messages semi-anonymously (we’ll just need your email so we know where to reply) instead if you so please! As always, we’ll post again when there’s more updates to report on. In the meantime, enjoy!
