Astral gathering is unlocked at Level 25. In astral gathering, you can spend an amount of gold to obtain one random astral. Each astral gathered may also unlock the next astro, allowing you to collect a better astral from it. Every astral gathered also grants one or more Star Points, which can be used to buy special astrals.
Once you gather an astral, you can choose to sell, synthesize, or collect it. If you choose to collect or synthesize it, you won't be able to sell it later (though you will be able to synthesize already collected astrals).
Some astrals start dropping after level 50 and 80, possibly after Class Advancement, though all astrals from astral exchange can be bought any time; also Astrals cannot be gathered when you have under 20,000 gold, even if the cost to gather is lower.
One Astral equip slot unlocks every 10 levels, so when astral gathering first unlocks, you can equip 2 astrals. The third slot unlocks at level 30, the fourth at 40, etc. However, you can't equip two Astrals that boost the same stat (e.g. Aegis and Goddess Blessing, or two Mysticality).
An astral's "value" is simply 1/10th of its total experience, including the experience needed to reach its current level and its experience value at level 1. The total value of all astrals you have equipped is displayed in the upper left-hand corner of the astral inventory screen. Astral value is conserved when astrals are converted into experience for other astrals, so the total value of all of your astrals will never go down.
Each astral gathered may also unlock the next astro, allowing you to collect one astral from it.

Level By Level Experience
Star Point Exchange
Clicking the "Exchange" button on the astral collection screen brings up a shop where astrals can be bought with Star Points. This shop sells:
- Energine, a special red astral worth 500 astral experience for 1,000 Star Points
- Greater Energine, a special red astral worth 2500 astral experience for 5,000 star points
- All other red astrals for 15,000 Star Points each
- Every orange astral for 7,000 Star Points each
- Every purple astral for 2,000 Star Points each
Upon unlocking Class Advancement, players can start refining some of their astral slots. The number of unlocked slot depend on the player's class level.
Each refining costs 1 million gold and gives 1 XP to the slot. Like in mount refining, there is an odd chance of getting 5 XP instead.
One full level of refining adds 1% of value to any astral sloted here. There is one particularity to note tho :
- On fixed number astrals (like Block and PDEF), the new astral value is (1 + x%) * fixed value
For example :
On a "2% refined" slot, a "+2304 PATK" astral would now be worth (2304 * 1.02) = 2350
- On percentage astrals (like illusion and determination), on the other hand, the new value would be (base + x)%
On a "3% refined" slot, the 18% chances of dodging damage of an Enhanced illusion lvl9 would become 21%
XP needed per level
Sell or collect green astrals?
If you're tring to gain experience for your current astrals, then it makes no difference; 10 experience for an astral costs an average of 3600 golds whether you're selling your green astrals or collecting them. You may as well collect them to save time.
If you're trying to obtain a strong astral to use, however (and the green astral itself would not be useful), then sell. The 10 experience you would have gotten will come back to you in the form of a few star points and a chance at a better astral. Also, selling green astrals will make a significant difference in how fast you rack up star points, so this is another aspect.
If you want a better chance at gaining higher astrals and getting more bang for your buck so to speak then set up your astrals so that you sell everything blue or less. The reason for this is with any luck you will get a lot of blue and since blue is worth 30 exp and 6000 gold you will be making a profit and regain all or most that you have lost. On top of that you will have a much better chance at gaining orange and purple astrals which are worth 50 and 70 exp and you will gain a decent amount of star points boosting you up higher.
Enhanced/Refined Blessed Health vs. (Enhanced) Regeneration
If you want to choose Enhanced/Refined Blessed Health or (Enhanced) Regeneration, you should consider the average damage you do in your opponents. Usually, players with low Battle Rating will use Refined/Enhanced Blessed Health and players with high Battle Rating will use (Enhanced) Regeneration.
Aegis (Major) vs. (Refined) Goddess Blessing
If you want to choose Aegis (Major) or (Refined) Goddess Blessing, you should consider your average damage you receive from your opponents.
(Enhanced) Will Destroyer vs. (Enhanced) Determination
If your hero is an Archer, you should not use the Enhanced Will Destroyer/Will Destroyer because you will lose the benefit of class-specific abilities, such as receiving rage after each critical (Acumen passive skill) and boosting damage dealt by all teammates after a critical (Battle Prowess passive skill).
