On the topic of minor cards, these are basically bonus effects that will change certain aspects of the current realm and are consumed on use.

They are played at realmic transmuters. In addition to building your own, these can also pop up in random places all around the map or at the top of Fae towers.

Things to Consider

Minor cards have varying tiers that will determine how potent their effects will be. Because of this, you should be very careful and read what each of the cards do to avoid unnecessary difficulties.

Most of these will change the environment, with some having way more dramatic and noticeable shifts in your surroundings. More importantly, some of the effects can include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Increase the quality and yield of ore but at the expense of making other materials less effective.
  • Boost your stamina regeneration and harvesting gains but also reduce how much damage you deal.
  • Increase the drop rate of rare materials from enemies but also leaves the entire realm in a permanent nighttime state.
  • Boost your damage and carrying capacity in exchange for items breaking faster and reduced stamina regeneration.
  • Decrease pretty much all of your stats and gives the realm a gloomy atmosphere with perpetual rain. This one is particularly odd and has no benefits.

There are many more effects to keep in mind, and over time, you’ll get a feel for what the best minor cards will be depending on your needs.

More of these may be added in future updates, and some of the existing ones may be buffed or nerfed throughout the early access period as well.

That is everything you need to know about minor cards in this game. If you are wondering what the other types of cards are for, check out our guide on how to build your first realm portal in Nightingale, as these require both major and biome cards!
