At its core, Kamihime Project is a resource management game. From a meta-game perspective, the player has 3 resources: playtime, passage of (real) time, and money (spent on the game). Each resource generally has diminishing returns, and "optimal" strategies will strike a balance between all three: sporadic gameplay throughout the day over several months, with sufficient time invested to reach one's goals, while spending money on the highest value cash shop items to progress more quickly and efficiently. The goal of this guide is to help new players make the best use of each resource, without prescribing exactly how much of each to invest.
In-game resources include the following:
- AP: Mainly obtained by passage of time and used to start battles of all types, with the maximum limit determined by player rank (level). You can obtain more with half-elixirs gained as rewards from events and missions. You can also spend jewels/money for elixirs (not recommended). Note that use of AP regenerating consumables is not recommended until rank 50 since their benefit scales with maximum AP (rank). Beginners should save half-elixirs for Advent events.
- BP: Mainly obtained by passage of time and used to join Raid Battles. You can obtain more with seed consumables obtained from events and missions. Beginners should save these for Burst time in Raid events.
- Gems: Mainly obtained from Union events and Gem Quests. Mainly used for Weapon Enhancement (Gem Gatcha rolls), SSR kamihime Awakening, and Accessory Enhancement, but also used to a lesser extent throughout the game. This is not generally a scarce resource until late game.
- Jewels: Used to expand the inventory and purchase Jewel Gatcha rolls. Spend your initial batch (new accounts should get 6k) on Gatcha while choosing an account. After that, max your inventory. It’s worth it.
- Star Coins: The game’s premium currency. Miracle tickets and SSR Kamihime Gatcha are a good value for beginners. For additional tips, see Cashing priority.
This is only an overview and doesn’t include other important item resources, e.g., Draconic Eyes, limit break materials, event tokens, soul regalia, and many more. You’ll learn more about these as you play.
Beginners should start by rerolling for a strong account.
- Beginner’s Guide: How to reroll for a Strong account
This guide will step you through the process and explain how a good starter account is such an important investment. Spending 1-2 hours rerolling now—even if you already have an account you’ve been playing for a month or so—will save you time and money down the road.
Once you have a strong account worth continued investment, the next priority is raising team attack power. This means collecting, limit-breaking, and leveling SR/SSR weapons and SSR eidolons for a full grid of each (10 weapons, 6 eidolons) at max level. For additional tips, see How to get strong quickly.
