What to Buy in Herta Store?

After clearing World 4 you will have 9 herta bonds. Your priority is to get 5 star Light Cones, then later after getting enough token (Herta Bond) you can either buy other 2 light cones or buy 4 Superimposer to maxed it. There’s 12 Superimposer available so eventually you can buy all 3 Light Cones and maxed it all.

As for which light cones to buy, it’s really depend on what you need and what character you have as explained below:

On the Fall of Aeon

It’s Destruction Light Cone, recommended to get if you have Clara and want to increase her damage by a lot. This light cones is second best light cones for her, more information you can read: Clara Build and Teams.

Cruising in the Stellar Sea

Cruising in the Stellar Sea

It’s The Hunt light cone, recommended to get if you don’t have any good light cone for dps character like Seele, though it’s placed like 3rd or 4th best for her. If you have In the Night, Sleep Like the Dead, or Swordplay you can pass on this light cones. Otherwise, grab it.

Texture of Memories

This effect can only be triggered once every 3 turn(s). If the wearer has a Shield when attacked, the DMG they receive decreases by 12/15/18/21/24%.

It’s Preservation light cones, recommended to use if you need good light cone for tank character like March 7th, Gepard, and Fire Trailblazer. IF you don’t have Gepard Light Cone: Moment of Victory, then Texture of Memories is the best light cone you can get for your tank.

We are still in early game so you will have to be careful on which light cone to choose. Take a look at your account and consider which character that you want to focus on. Good luck!
