Hello I just started playing this game yesterday and have been upgrading my characters levels, about 7 of them at level 21 with 2 of their traits upgraded once also.
I also have clicked on upgrade under my characters and their gear gets destroyed, I assume the stats get added to the character because I see green text with stats scrolling up when I do this.
I am this new, do I have to farm maps that I have already beat to farm mats for more gear, and how do I upgrade the star level of the characters, I have a few shards like 2 ot 4 for each character but I need like 25 or more.
So as I am going along, is it the right way to upgrade by "finding" parts in game that are linking to maps Ive already cleared. Or does chasing gear like that at such low star level just waste time?
