Wavetale Cheats and Tips
Stay Away From The Gloom
As you progress in the story of Wavetale, you’ll start going against different kinds of enemies. Some of these will fight you in melee range while others can throw projectiles or charge at you from a distance. It’s quite easy and intuitive to deal with these enemies since you can differentiate them.
Note: There’s an enemy called Strider that only appears in the water. They have huge legs that let them stay far above sea level while they constantly hurl projectiles at you. To defeat these enemies, you need to jump at the right time and attack them four times.
Although, the most dangerous aspect of the game isn’t the enemies you go against, but the gloom itself. The entire world of Wavetale is surrounded by black toxic fog that can also appear in your current area. These clouds are known as gloom, and they usually block your path to the destination.
If you run into one of these clouds by mistake, Sigrid will take damage, which is shown by the decrease in the white bar on your right side. If this bar runs out, you’ll have to restart at the last checkpoint. And if you don’t take any damage from the gloom or the enemies for a few seconds, this bar regenerates automatically.
Tip: You don’t have to find your way past these gloom clouds since you can simply destroy most of them. Get close to the clouds and use your fishnet to attack when the surrounding outline is white. You can get rid of most of the gloom clouds in this manner, including the ones thrown at you by Striders.
Look Out For Small Sparks
The people in Wavetale love sparks in every way possible, and you’ll also find many dialogues using spark puns. From the very start of the game, you’ll be sent to look for cyan-colored sparks that will help you power different generators and lighthouses. Getting these sparks is important to continue the story.
On the other hand, some smaller yellow-colored sparks aren’t essential to the story. When you first encounter these sparks, grandma will tell you that you can keep them since they’re of no use to her. You can spend this currency at shops to get many stylish outfits for Sigrid.
Here are some of the guaranteed ways to get a lot of sparks:
- When you’re traveling from one main area to another for the first time, there will be certain slides that will have these sparks on them. You can get on these slides by using the grapple mechanic on the correct side, and they’ll also speed up your journey.
- There are many side quests in every main area of the game, and finishing these quests will spawn a big bucket of sparks.
Tip: Apart from this, you should always be on the lookout for sparks in hidden areas across the map. You’ll need to get a lot of these if you’d like to buy all the designs and cosmetics possible.
You Can Dive Underwater
While this mechanic doesn’t help you dodge any attacks, it looks cool and can decrease the amount of time you need to get from one place to another. Whenever you’re jumping off different ledges or going over the water, Sigrid will have a pinkish aura around her. Whenever you see this aura, it means that you can dive underwater.
To do so, you simply have to press and hold the sprint button. It’s important to hold this button because Sigrid will stop diving as soon as you leave that. Once you get in the water, you’ll have very high speed for a few seconds as your shadow friend holds you below itself.
Tip: You can’t dive again if you’re already in the water. This means that if you jump while surfing, and even if you double jump after that, you won’t simply be able to dive back in. But there is a way to dive over and over again.
If you stop pressing sprint while you’re underwater, Sigrid will instantly perform a jump. If you double jump after this, you can dive in the water again, allowing you to constantly be underwater.
The diving mechanic is perfect if you’re fighting multiple Striders at the same time. After killing one of them, you can dive and get to the next one quickly, giving them no time to adjust. Moreover, it can also be combined with the slides while you’re getting from one area to another.
