John

John is that typical Paladin, all-rounded class. He’s neither slow nor fast, neither strong nor weak. He’s an excellent choice most of the times and you’d do well to learn how to play as John. His Heaven’s Sword skill allows him to deal with large hordes of enemies quickly and his Shield is excellent. It’s a great alternative to dodging and some skills will increase the usefulness of his shield further. For example, there’s a skill that hurts enemies that attack John while his shield is raised.

Kevin

Kevin is a stealthy, fast character. Typical of the “Assassin” archetype. His defining ability is his ability to enter “Frenzy” mode. This greatly increases his attack speed and can destroy enemies quickly. This, combined with Rage mode can take down a boss in seconds. He also moves pretty fast while running and while attacking. You can dodge enemies while attacking easily. There are some exceptions as some enemies have huge AoE attacks, mostly bosses.

Linda

Linda is the archer of the family. She uses up Stamina whenever she’s attacking and moving at the same time when her stamina runs out, she’s not able to shoot while moving. She has trouble dealing with big groups of enemies, but she can be extremely powerful with the right loadout.

You can find Runes that turn her primary attack into a 3-arrow shot every time. This hugely increases her efficiency while dealing with tons of monsters. You can also combine skills and rune to obtain a devastating combination. She’s the only character that has a straightforward skill that increases her attack damage. The catch is that she has to remain still, but when this is paired with her Rage mode, it can deal an insane amount of damage in seconds, bringing down bosses easily.

Mark

Mark uses his fists to attack. A small indicator will appear below enemies while in range, this represents Mark’s range. Whenever you’re in range, you can press the attack key and Mark will jump straight and quickly towards the target. His attack speed is incredibly high and his primary attack has a pretty good area of effect, he has no trouble dealing with large groups of enemies.

Lucy

Lucy is the mage of the family. She uses Mana to cast spells learned through skills. Her primary attack is a ranged fireball that can only be used while remaining still. This is a huge drawback, but she can use her skills to keep enemies at bay. She can cast tornados that will hurt and incapacitate enemies, she can stun them and more. Her primary attack will cast some fire sparks to the sides that will damage enemies and its efficiency can be increased through skills.

Joey

Joey is the typical heavy-hitter, he uses a hammer, which is very slow but can deal a lot of damage and has a huge area of effect. He’s also the character with the highest HP in the game. His HP is what allows him to fight freely. While playing as Joey, you will be tanking a lot of damage and dodging attacks is significantly harder than with the rest of the characters. Recovering HP is the key to playing Joey, so start saving up all those Charms that recover HP and if you happen to any Divine Relics that recover HP, definitely grab those.

Bosses are displayed in order of appearance.

Spider King

This is it, your first boss. I’ve had trouble beating this boss at first, so I had to die a few times before I got it, right. After a few tries in the Silk Caverns, you will unlock Kevin, a new character. Personally, it was a lot easier for me to beat this boss with Kevin, despite having a significantly harder playthrough. I’d recommend trying with Kevin if you’re having trouble. You need to be careful until Kevin gains his Frenzy mode in which he gains attack speed. Once your Frenzy bar is filled, you can start attacking the Spider King as much as you can and it’ll go down in no time.

This boss has a very consistent attack pattern. It will first use the spiderwebs to move outside the screen and smash the ground wherever the player is. Save your dashes for these attacks as it can be a bit difficult to avoid otherwise. After that, it will summon big spiders and these can be a pain since they have long-range attacks. Try to deal with the spiders as soon as possible. The only chances you get to attack the boss is when it smashes the ground and goes to the top side of the room to summon more spiders.

Gobling King & Queen

The boss deals melee damage but can charge against the player from one side of the screen to the other pretty quickly. Even with John, you can easily hit this boss once and dodge, sometimes you can even hit him twice. Keep up this pattern and around mid health, another boss will be summoned. Make sure to take down the one with half its health bar first. The second boss deals a lot more damage and can reach long distance with jumps and smash the ground. This will deal damage in an area of effect. Make sure you keep your Stamina up to be able to dodge. Within melee range, the second boss will launch two consecutive attacks, so be prepared to dodge twice. If you’re playing with John, you can dodge once, but make sure you’re holding the direction keys on the opposite side while you dodge or the hits will reach you.

Nohar

One of the boss’ most common attack is a stomp that releases a wave that can stun you. Followed by this, it’s usually a quick long-range attack. When you get close, it will start pulling you towards him and then smash the ground to release a shock wave in your direction. Don’t smash the dodge key when this happens, try to time it correctly so that you can avoid the following attack. After all those attacks, he will start floating and protect himself with some sort of shield while floating around shooting projectiles in all directions. You cannot hit him while he’s in this state and you’ll get hurt on contact. These projectiles can be tricky to figure out at first, but the trick is to get as close as possible before they start spreading out, that will make it easier to dodge.

Aazam

The boss can go underground and appear at any point in the room. One of the first attacks it will use is a three slash long-range attacks that fire big energy waves towards the player. However, the waves do not travel the entire room so for the most part it is safe to simply run in the opposite direction. This changes when it’s a single wave, the range is superior and can travel the entire room. After you take half of its health, it will go into an ethereal state and charge against the player. It cannot be hit in this state. From here on out, it will regularly summon thieves near the player. They can be annoying, but they also drop Health Potion, so be on the lookout.

Aziz

The boss’ attacks aren’t necessarily powerful, but what makes this fight a bit hard is the number of monsters he can spawn. As you kill the summons, they will drop Gemstones you can use on the pillars on both sides. This will immediately kill all the monsters and get rid of the purple traps on the ground. Mark and John can take care of this boss quite easily. The reach and area of effect damage their primary attacks deal are perfect for dealing with big hordes, plus, John can use his Heaven’s Strike skill to help with the monsters. As long as you use the Gemstones as soon as you get them and proceed to hit the boss while he is undefended, it will go down in no time.

Scorpion King

Scorpion King is an aggressive boss. It will chase you and launch melee attacks at you. Sometimes it will go underground and cause an explosion when he emerges. Scorpions will join the Scorpion King while fighting, but those won’t be a problem if you’re playing with a melee character, specially Joey, the scorpions will just be collateral damage to him. It can be hard to dodge the Scorpion King’s attacks if you’re playing with Joey, due to his very low attack speed. I recommend John, Mark or Linda for this fight. John and Mark because of their good area of effect primary attacks and Linda because she can stay far from the Scorpion King’s reach. You could play Lucy, but because she is not able to move while she’s attacking, you won’t be able to deal a lot of damage to the Scorpion King while attacking. Before you know it, he will be right next to you and you will have to stop attacking in order to dodge his attacks. Get used to his attacks, land a few hits, dodge, rinse and repeat.

Deadboise

Another melee boss. This one’s a hard hitter and he can attack twice consecutively. I managed to beat this one with Kevin, but in my case, he was my highest level character. One of the hardest parts was building up Kevin’s Frenzy mode, but after that, it went better. After a bit of fighting (he will only use melee attacks), he will root himself to the ground and some roots will emerge. You’ll have to destroy the roots to attack Deadboise, but these roots can drop potions. Deadboise doesn’t have any ranged attacks, which makes ranged characters perfect for this mission. You can try your luck with Linda or Lucy. As long as you keep Deadboise at bay or dodge his attacks, the fight will go smoothly.

Babylon

Babylon can launch homing ranged attacks, which can be devastating for ranged characters. These homing projectiles must be destroyed or they will chase you forever, and to top it off, he can chase you whilst with a circle of fire surrounding him, this can deal a lot of damage as well. Missiles will be aimed at you from the launchers on the corners, luckily you can predict where it will land by the crosshair on the floor. You can actually use these missiles to damage Babylon, and they will deal a lot of damage, too. Despite the fact that this boss seems to be thought out to counter ranged characters, I beat it my first time with Linda. If you play with Linda, make sure you have the Rage skill unlocked, you can deal an immense amount of damage and grab any Totem Divine Relics you can find, the reason for this is that stationary buffs are great for ranged characters or characters that need to stay in place, like Linda and Lucy. Combine all of this together and Babylon will go down easily.

0030

Welcome to the most chaotic boss fight, yet. Upon starting the fights, some wall blocks will emerge from the floor, they will shoot projectiles, lasers, missiles and more. All of this while you have to fight the normal enemies. After a while, the glass covering 0030 will lower and you’ll have some time to hit him. Make sure that you save your Rage state for exactly this moment, you have to deal the most amount of damage you can while the glass is lowered.

OU

There is no dungeon for this battle, as soon as you enter OU’s temple, the three spirits will be waiting for you. Talk to them and they will each give you a Divine Grace. Perhaps one of OU’s weakest attacks is the fireball rain, while he’s doing this you can hit him easily and it’s very rare that the fireballs will touch you. After that that, he will launch several projectiles forward, then he will disappear and appear again, this is your window to hit him, he will do this several times. He will change his attack pattern halfway through his health bar and summon some enemies. While you fight those enemies, he will start chanting and a circle will appear on the floor. He will summon some crystals that will spiral around the room. You can attack the crystals to get rid of them.

Getting his health bar down to 20% will trigger a cutscene. You’ll be inside a circle created by the wind spirit and one of the Bergsons will be with you. Hold down the F key to resurrect them and follow the wind spirit. You will have to fight some new enemies and go finding the rest of the family to revive them. Once you revive them all, the second stage of the fight will begin.

This time you will be fighting alongside the rest of the Bergsons. A lot of enemies will come at you and OU will repeatedly summon fireballs from the sky, but it will go down quickly because of how much damage the entire family deals.

Tips & Tricks

Tips & Tricks for Children of Morta. The game doesn’t hold your hand at all and it’s up to the player to learn how the mechanics work. Some of them might not be so obvious and we’re here to help you. There’s also a Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom that you can check out.

Play with all the available characters. Not only do characters get “Corruption Fatigue”, but levelling all characters is beneficial because of their Family Traits.

All dungeon events are randomly generated. If you lose one, you can try it again.

Did you notice those glowing energy gates? They can be very useful because enemies cannot pass through it. You could lure all enemies near the gate and attack them from the other side.

Combine Rage-mode with other abilities. This can make some characters that are otherwise weak, very powerful. For instance, you can combine Linda’s Rage-mode with the Totem of Rostam Divine Relic to greatly increase your damage output.

Be on the lookout for red triangle symbols on the ground. These will start to light up the more enemies you kill near them. Once they light up completely, they will drop Runes, Morv and other items.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are melee characters underpowered?

A: No. In fact, Kevin can decrease half a boss’ health in a matter of seconds if used correctly. John can use his Heaven’s Strike attack to deal with a large number of enemies at once. Mark’s primary attacks are quick and have a rather large area of effect, allowing you to fight groups of enemies without being counterattacked. Joey is slow, but he can tank a lot of damage and deal a lot of damage.

Q: What are the benefits of playing a melee character?

A: Melee characters can attack many more enemies at once. For instance, John’s primary attacks’ area of effect is much bigger than any ranged characters’. You can group enemies and immobilise them while attacking. Another obvious benefit is that they deal much more damage than ranged characters. Kevin’s Frenzy mode makes him unstoppable against bosses and if combined with Rage-mode, you can take down a boss in a matter of seconds.

Q: What do you lose upon death?

A: You’ll lose Divine Graces, Divine Relics and Runes. You get to keep everything else, Morv included.
