Child of Light - Tips and Tricks for Getting Started

Updated: May 1, 2021    


Before you Play the Child of Light game, you will definitely want to know these simple but useful tips and tricks. If you have any tips feel free to share with us!

Things to Know Before Playing



A party member permanently leaves you about 2/3rds of the way through the game so don't waste any dust on them. The member is Norah.

Here are all the Oculi combinations:

  • 3 Rough gems of the same kind = 1 Tumbled gem
  • 3 Tumbled gems of the same kind = 1 Faceted gem
  • 3 Faceted gems of the samd kind = 1 Brilliant Gem
  • Sapphire  +  Ruby = Amethyst
  • Ruby  +  Emerald = Citrine
  • Sapphire  +  Emerald = Tourmaline
  • Sapphire  +  Ruby  +  Emerald = Diamond
  • Amethyst  +  Citrine  +  Tourmaline = Onyx
  • Onyx  +  Diamond = Spinel
  • Brilliant Onyx  +  Brilliant Diamond  +  Brilliant Spinel = Princess Stone

All the elements have about the same level of usefulness, but one thing to note is Lightning and Light elements won't get reduced damage against anything.

Unless you do a ton of grinding you won't have enough skill points to max everything in your skill trees. I had just enough to max 2 of the trees at the end of my playthrough where I fought everything I encountered. The end of the skill trees unlock about 2/3rds of the way through the game.

There are no shops anywhere so be a bit careful about how many health potions you use.
