In Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2, as the headmaster, players are tasked with constructing and leading the academy for heroes in Valthiria. From advanced training facilities to magical libraries, players have the freedom to design a campus that encourages inspiration and excitement. Fostering an environment that reveals hidden talents and pushes students to their full potential is a must to achieve the goal.
But the role of an academy headmaster extends beyond campus construction. Players must carefully curate a curriculum that reflects the strengths of their students, whether they lie in magic, divine ability, arcwork, or raw strength. The guidance players provide impacts students’ questing capabilities, adding weight to each decision made.
In addition to academic instruction, the game emphasizes in-field combat training. Players will have to strategize and select from their roster of unique students to tackle monsters and beasts threatening the land of Valthiria. This engaging, turn-based combat system presents its own challenges and rewards.
Moreover, the game’s diplomacy component challenges players to maintain peace in Valthiria, building positive relationships with local citizens by assigning students to quests and internships.
Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2 also offers lighter moments with an array of mini-games, including swimming, fishing, feasting, and snowman building. Players can immerse themselves in these friendly contests, creating lasting memories with their students throughout the changing seasons.
