Ni No Kuni 2: Insight on the Higgledies
No more are the familiars you were used to in Ni No Kuni, as Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom presents the Higgledy. Evan Pettywhisker Tildrum, the young ruler of Ding Dong Dell, and his companions will not be alone in battle. The natural phenomena known as Higgledies are cute, little creatures who will join the party and help in battle.
While it is not essential to focus massive attention on the Higgledies, with them using offensive and defensive abilities, they definitely can provide you with an edge during combat -- and some of the things they do, they do without you even needing to manually set things up.
How to Get Higgledies in Ni No Kuni 2
The access to Higgledies first comes when you save Martha, an old woman who is being attacked. When she notices that you can see the Higgledies, she will gift you one. However, without the kingdom building phase of the game, you will be unable to level them up or create your own. So, without being able to create your own or get more from Martha, you will want to find and interact with Higgledy Stones.
When you find the stones, you do not automatically obtain the Higgledy. Instead, the Higgledy inside the stone will give you a hint of what it wants, and it’ll be your job to search through your inventory to see what might match the Higgledy Stone’s desire.
If you have what the Higgledy wants, it will join your party. If you don’t give the Higgledy what it wants on the first try, you can give it something else. You will lose the item, so choose carefully.
Maximizing Your Higgledies Usage
In Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom, there are 100 unique Higgledies to be collected, and each one comes with its own special powers. With only being allowed four Higgledies in your party, you want to make sure you choose the best Higgledies possible.
Some Higgledies will automatically heal the party, provide shields to protect the party, and throw out green and blue orbs (for HP and MP respectively). Higgledies have two normal abilities, a third that is their advanced ability, and a fourth that benefits you during an awakened state. So, make sure to know what each Higgledy is all about because some may boost your attack power (here’s looking at the Scrap, Scrap! ability), lower the enemy’s attack power, and so on.
Now, as each Higgledy has its own abilities and personality, you will want to make sure you have a decent balance within your party, as that affects their aid in combat. For instance, if you have four shy Higgledies in your party, none of them will be willing to take the initiative, so make sure to switch them up. You can check out the personality to the left of the Higgledy’s attack and defense stats.
Creating New Higgledies in Ni No Kuni 2
It is natural to swap Higgledies in and out of your party, as each Higgledy presents something different. So, going to all the stone locations shouldn’t be seen as a waste of time. And once you have the Higglery, you can create new Higgledies and enhance your current Higgledies.
To create new Higgledies, you want to have plenty of materials. You can gather these materials from the store in your kingdom. To level up current Higgledies, remember that Higgledies like certain things, and if you feed them the things they like, you can level them up.
Make sure to try and match Higgledies to the skills your party members possess. Only then can you use the Higgledies to their full potential.
