You want to know how to use them?
Where should I start?
You can buy linkshells in shops. They're a little pricey, though.
It might be best if you ask friends who want pearls to chip in.
- Assigning a color and name.
A freshly bought new linkshell has neither a color nor a name.
A linkshell becomes usable only after you've chosen its color and given it a name. Then you can use it to make linkpearls.
You can combine different amounts of blue, red, and green to make your shell's color.
You can only use alphabet letters for the name, but you can use capital and lowercase letters anywhere you want.
Linkpearls are made from linkshells.
Making them is easy. Just equip your linkshell, then go to “Linkshell” in the menu and select “Create Pearl”!
All linkpearls made this way retain the linkshell's color and name, so it's easy to tell who can hear you!
You can make as many linkpearls as you want, whenever you want, so don't worry about making too many of them!
You can also make linkpearls with pearlsack the same way.
Oh, and...you use your linkshell to make pearlsacks, too, but it's a little complicated so I'll tell you later.
You have to equip linkshell for it to have any effect.
Go to "Linkshell" from the menu, choose the linkshell you want to equip, and you're all ready to go.
It's a little different from equipping weapons and armor.
After you've done this, an icon that represents what you've equipped will appear beside your name. This is where the color you chose becomes visible.
If someone "checks" you in this state, they will be able to see the name of the linkshell you have on.
Follow the same steps to equip linkpearls and pearlsacks.
To speak into linkshell, change your chat mode to “linkshell,” and whatever you say will be heard by everyone who has the same “link.”
You can also type “/linkshell” and type your message. The shorter version is “/l” (lowercase “L” for “linkshell”).
Ah, but of course, you have to have linkshell, linkpearl, or pearlsack equipped first.
Whatever you say will only be heard by people who have the linkshell, linkpearl, or pearlsack with the same link.
So if you want to stop listening to your link, all you have to do is unequip your linkshell, linkpearl, or pearlsack.
A linkshell can metamorphose other people's linkpearls and pearlsacks. Of course, it can only affect those that were made from the same linshell.
There are two types of metamorphoses, which are:
1: Make into sack / Make into pearl
Both need the target linkpearl or pearlsack to be equipped at the time.
“Make into sack / Make into pearl” makes the target linkpearl into a pearlsack and vice-versa.
It's useful if you want someone else to take care of handing out linkpearls in your place.
“Kick” actually breaks the link with the target linkpearl or pearlsack and turns it into junk.
Once kicked, the linkpearl will become broken and unusable...
Only use this in extreme cases!
Pearlsacks can also be used to “kick” but they can only affect linkpearls.
Linshells, and linkpearls are normal items, so they can be thrown away easily.
But as normal items, you'll lose them permanently if you throw them away.
It won't really matter if it's a linpearl, but throwing away linkshell is not a good idea!
