Do u know if n e one knows n e posted hints on how to win characters (Arantis) over? I guess I'm naturally too nice or something heh...
I've already posted some small tips on how to get Arantis. Try using them :)
"Arantis likes a challenge and a little bit of bickering, so don't be too amenable to him. "
"MC for Arantis: carefree, funny, flirty, energetic, self - confident, sociable, eccentric, quick – witted, sassy."
