Pierce The Pierce astral is the counterpart to enshieldment . It allows you to add to the break block stat . This allows greater chance that you will break through an opponents block thus dealing more damage . 8. Sniper's Edge This astral adds to your Crit stat . This allows a greater chance of an attack becoming a Critical Strike thus dealing more damage to your enemy. 9. Guardian Angel The Guardian angel astral is the counterpart to sniper's edge . It adds to your Anti - Crit stat . This allows a greater chance to reduce an incoming attack from becoming a critical strike . The Astro button on the main screen at the bottom is how you will get to your Astral Screen to work with your Astrals . The astral screen above is the heart of working with your Astrals . At the bottom are several pictures . Clicking on a Picture costs the amount of gold listed below the picture itself . Each time you click on a picture there are two outcomes for Astrals and two outcomes for advancement . First off the options for advancement . You will either move one space to the right or go back to the first picture . The outcomes for Astrals are you can receive a Misfortune Astral or you can receive a regular Astral . Misfortune Astrals are not for use on the heroes you simply sell them . They are worth 10K gold each . The regular Astrals are for putting on your Heroes . The Capture All button in the Screen Shot above Will capture all Astrals until one of two things happen . # 1 you run out of gold #2 you fill all bubbles on the screen . This is where the next two buttons come into play . You can use the Sell All button and it will sell only the Misfortune Astrals that you have . Do not be afraid to use it . The Synthesize All button will Combine all Astrals in the bubbles that are not Misfortune into the Astral of the Highest Quality . For Instance if you have a Purple Astral and the rest are blue or green it will combine all astrals into the purple one raising its level . *NOTE* Synthesize All will not combine Astrals into an Orange Astral . You will have to do that Manually by clicking on the astral you do not want and then clicking on the Orange Astral . The next button in this section is the Advanced Capture button . You may use Balens to click on this button and Capture an Astral . It will be at least Purple Quality and it has the chance to be an Orange quality . If you have Astro Tokens in your bag these will be consumed first when you use the Advanced Capture button . PLEASE NOTE : You MUST be VIP lvl 3 or higher to use the Advanced Capture. The Astral Button below this is where you interface with your Heroes individual Astral Screens . This will allow you to place Astrals into the open slots on your Hero and add to their stats and thus add to your BR . On the Left side of the screen you have another set of buttons . Starting with the lock button . This one is fairly simple . If you click on this button and then click on an Astral you will Lock it . This means you can do nothing with this Astral until you unlock it . This prevents accidentally messing up and folding an Astral you are saving into something else . The Next button is The Recycle Button . This allows you to take an astral you do not want and turn it into points . These points are used in the Astral Shop . This is where the Exchange button comes in . You can use the exchange button to get into the Astral Shop . The exchange shop allows you to take astral points and turn them into either purple or Orange Astrals . This allows you to eventually upgrade your astrals completely . Astrals of Green , Blue , and Purple quality are available from Chests or from the Astral Screen . Occasionally you will get lucky and get an Orange Quality from the Astral screen . The exchange shop offers Purple and Orange . There is another way to get Orange Astrals . You can get one of Each Astral of Orange Quality from the Goblin Shop . After Looting the Goblins .... at times you will receive Soul Shards . These Shards can be exchanged in the Goblin Shop for Astrals or for Armor or For Bound Balens . The only way to get Red Astrals which are the top quality is from becoming a VIP Level 7 , 9 or 10 . The only other way to get Red Astrals is from Events . Combining astrals into other astrals and Always striving for the best Quality in Color will help you raise your Stats and your BR .
