Illuvium is an RPG that lets players travel around the globe and meet creatures called Illuvials. They battle them. The player can capture them in Shards if they are defeated in combat. As they build up their power, players can venture into more dangerous areas or fight other players. Combat, which isn’t turn-based, is one of the ways Illuvium stands out from other RPGs. Each combat instance is an “auto battle”, where the player strategically places and selects their Illuvials in order to counter their opponent. It is important to choose Illuvials which work well together and that are strong against the opponent’s choice.
