Fortune cards

The Fortune Cards are a collectible within Gigantic as well as a key feature of the game. Each card has a task which, upon its completion, will award the player with Prestige Icon small exp and Crowns Icon small crown, as well as reveal a part of the lore.

Cards are divided by category – a card may be based upon the world – Major Arcana, or upon a HeroMinor Arcana. Cards further are dived by sets of 3 rarity types, which reward player with a designated amount of Rubies with completion:

  • Common – +50 Icon small ruby
  • Rare – +100 Icon small ruby

Overall amount of all available in the game cards, counting all rarities, is 549. Player can have a hand of maximum 7 cards to complete in a time. To get a new card player should make a draw. Draws can be obtained through a couple of different means:

With each draw, the chances of receiving a Rare or Legendary card increases. However, the chances of receiving a card that has not yet been completed decreases.

TriviaEdit

  • Fortune Cards are based on famous Tarot cards, which are often used in divination and other esoteric practices. This can be seen in “arcana” terms, numerical order and some of the titles – both actual and seen only as code names (such as “the Hierophant”, or “the Beast” replacing “the Devil”).
  • Oru, one of the heroes of Gigantic, is deeply related to Fortune Cards in various ways:
    • Oru is an Eternal that specializes in seeing the future – the cards are his primary instrument, as well as the weapon: “Judgment” for
      BURN
      Deals damage over time.
