What is the Rookies’ Path in SINoALICE

For when your in-game guide needs its own explanation.

As you’d expect from a Yoko Taro game, SINoALICE is dripping with style and self-awareness. Mobile games aren’t primarily known for their stories, but SINoALICE tells a comically bleak yarn of classic fairy tale characters slaughtering thousands of monsters to resurrect their authors. The game is also aware it is not the simplest to get into. There are tons of systems to get the hang of when you’re getting started, and it’s not always explicitly clear what you should even be doing.

To make the game a little more straightforward, a patch released not long after its worldwide launch included a new feature in its user Interface, the Rookies’ Path. In case you’re still wondering how to get into this head-scratching game, we’ve got you covered.

Finding the Rookies’ Path

With the patched version of SINoALICE, you can find the icon for the Rookies’ Path feature in the upper left corner of the game’s home page. The Rookies’ Path is essentially a to-do list of missions and other tasks you’ll want to accomplish to progress through the game at a good pace. There are so many different modes and features in SINoALICE, it’s a good idea for new players to go to the Rookies’ Path and see what’s up next. Completing sections of the Rookies’ Path will also earn you tons of rewards. Finishing all of the Rookies’ Path will net you hundreds of Twilight Crystals, weapon sets, and a rare Alice/Mage job.

To get through the Rookies’ Path as efficiently as possible, it is best to mainline a single character so you can progress through the story without repeating chapter and verse milestones. You can always check to see how many tasks you still need to complete for the Rookies’ Path on the Home screen by checking the number tag on the Rookies’ Path icon.

SINoALICE is still a complicated game, but the Rookies’ Path does make it a little easier to get a hold of what to do and get on your way to resurrecting some authors.
