I'm really just getting started with this content and have been researching information. After a look about the sites and a Google I still have a few questions in particular regarding the various grimoire and boons.

1. There are various grimoire available for purchase. What is the significance of various grimoire and why would you want to have more than 1?
2. I see that boons are granted for clearing areas and recorded to the grimoire. I also see that grimoire are turned in to do a level 5 area and rendered unusable. Does that mean the boons are gone as well and must be resecured ? At this point are the grimoire a /toss type item?
3. If the grimoire are rendered unusable are they (a.)retained by the Burrows Reasercher keying you to purchase another (b.) returned to you wiped clean of any boons/progress. unable to record any other activity and just taking up dead space until you /toss them (c.) returned to you in some other condition.

Thanks much.

The only purpose I can see in having a 2nd grimoire is if you're working on building up specific bonuses for a certain boss fight, because the bonuses are wiped every time you fight one. Having a 2nd book would allow you to go back and get clears for someone without losing the buffs built up on your primary one.

When you attempt a boss fight, the grimoire is returned wiped of progress, it is still usable.

Actually, you run people to boss access on book A, then one person uses their book B to put the TH boon on everyone's book A without losing access to the TH boon fight. then one person at a time uses their book A to lead a boss run with the TH boon active (which the leader's boons apply to everyone) while everyone else uses their book A so it doesn't wipe their boss access and stored TH boon (everyone's boons/access gets wiped on their current book on a boss win, which is why meeble burrows is stupid).

That's the gist of it anyway. You can use the other book to keep access to a fight that gives you a boon as well as not lose gathered boons and instead have a boss run and boons gathered per-person.

If boss wins didn't wipe everyone's books for some stupid reason, extra books indeed wouldn't serve any purpose.

Thanks for the infos folks. The book "boons" I guess is where I'm getting mentally stumbled at.

Is this how this works:

Keep 1 grimoire book to log every juicy boon you could get, and keep it back never to be used for a boss. Then within your group be leader on just one of the lower 4 battles and use that book just once on one of the 4 lower battles so that everyone else's books get laced with all the boons you had? Then go kill a boss on one of their books?

Does just the leader's book get wasted or does everyones book get replaced?

Thanks again.
