But this is the only option if you have no friends playing to help you during battle for using many weapons.
The game will randomly choose a player that you do not know to be mercenaries.
You may send them a free gift of either energy points or a weapon.
This may encourage the player to add you as a friend.
You do not have to send the gift but it is a nice gesture.
It is free and not taken from your inventory.
Notes:If you are purchasing weapons and amulets to increase your attack and defense scores you will not be able to use them until you have enough crew to use them Make sure to use your gems sparingly to have enough to purchase a mercenary crew member if needed.
