Bonfires also allow Ryza and her friends to rest, changing the time of the day and therefore enemies nearby.
In addition to building bonfires, players will also be able to build their own atelier in each region to serve as a base for the adventure.

Players will even be able to send Puni out into the world to collect materials for them.
