Awakening is the process of leveling your character to the maximum allowed capacity, and "unlocking" special attributes for your character to earn and use.
We have a soft level cap at 1500. In which after you reach level 1500, you then start gaining Awakening exp. Once you awaken and grab all 3 promotions, you'll be able to Specialize your vocation gaining new powerful spells. Awakening is an automatic process that occurs when you level, and requires no materials.
Every 2 awakening levels you receive awakening stat point which you can add to any stat up to a capacity of 75. To add the available awakening points, go to stats inside the home button, select the stat you want to put the points into and press the "Awakening" button
Every 10 awakening levels you will receive an awakening spell point which allows you to upgrade your vocations spells. You receive your first point at awakening level 0. Adding these points into a spell will increase their efficiency and once the spell reaches 5/50 it will turn into the "awakened" version of itself, this effect doubles on 10/50 Each point in awakened spells increases their effectiveness 5% (+0.05x). For example, Strong Spinning Blades will strike twice once awakened, 2nd time for 50% of the damage and 3rd time at 10/50 and each point will increase its damage. Go to the Awakened Spells page for more information regarding the specific spells.
