  • Once the Altar has been located, players must obtain Blood Moon Essence. They must reach Yashea during the Blood Moon Period and kill a specific pink jellyfish-like creature called Root Wisp floating about.
  • If players enter Yaesha and it isn’t in the blood moon period, there isn’t any point in sticking around and waiting for it. Go back and come back at some other time. You will need to try this multiple times as this period is very hard to come by.
  • Now from the Blood Moon Altar, you will buy “The Faded Grimoire.” You will require 15 Blood Moon Essence, 5 Luminite Crystals, and 1500 Scrap.
  • Once you have purchased The Faded Grimoire, you will return to Ward 13.
  • You will go to Wallace and craft “The Tome of Bringer,” an Engram for Summoner Class.

You will begin the playthrough without any class. However, as the game progresses and you complete the introduction, you will interact with Wallace at Ward 13. Upon interacting with Wallace, you can choose from five starting classes Medic, Hunter, Gunslinger, Handler, and Challenger.

Although Summoner Class is not available to players initially, it can be easily unlocked by performing the tasks mentioned below.

Finding The Blood Moon Altar

  • Initially, as you enter the World of Yaesha, you will need to find a Blood Moon Altar. Since the game maps are procedurally generated, we cannot give a predetermined location of the Blood altar. However, as you explore the World of Yaesha, you will come across one eventually. A blue mark will indicate the position of the  Blood Moon Altar on the map.

Purchasing The Faded Grimoire

  • From this Blood Moon Altar, you will have to purchase “The Faded Grimoire.” Players require a certain currency called Blood Moon Essence to purchase The Faded Grimoire. To collect blood moon essence, players must Travel to Yaesha during Blood Moon, and this blood moon, you can find Pink Jellyfish-like material called Root Wisp floating about in Yaesha.
  • After killing them, you receive Blood Moon Essence. However, it should be remembered that blood moon essence is rare, as shooting down one of the floating materials gives only 1 Blood Moon Essence. Thus it should be used efficiently. If you enter Yaesha and it’s not in the Blood Moon state, there is no point in waiting for it; you must return later. In the blood moon state, the light of the Moon in the sky will be Red.
