Inspiration is a resource consumed by the player in order to use symphonic weapons. The player's current and maximum inspiration is shown as a circular series of wedges above the player, while inspiration is being used. Inspiration regenerates automatically as long as the player isn't firing a Bard weapon, and fills more quickly if the player stands still.

Each character starts with 8 maximum inspiration. Using Inspiration Fragments increases the player's maximum inspiration by 2 permanently by adding another wedge to the meter, up to a maximum of 20. If the player's inspiration is already 20 or more, using Revelation Shards increases the player's maximum inspiration by 1 permanently by adding a purple layer to already-existing wedges, up to a maximum of 30. If the player's inspiration is 30 or more, using Epiphany Crystals further increases the player's maximum inspiration by 1 permanently by adding an orange layer of the already-existing purple wedges, up to a maximum of 40.

Restoring Inspiration[edit | edit source]

Inspiration regenerates on its own when not in use, until the player's current maximum is reached. The rate at which it regenerates picks up speed when not in use, making it more efficient to burn all of your inspiration at once and then wait for a full recovery. This down time can be used to focus on dodging attacks and switching Bard weapons for other empowerments that may be best suited for the situation. Player movement does not impede the regeneration process allowing for constant movement with no setbacks.

There are also several items that can be used to restore inspiration:

Item Notes
Inspiration Note (cyan).pngInspiration Note (cyan) Cyan inspiration notes restore 3 inspiration instantly when collected and cannot be placed in the inventory. They can only be obtained from wired Music Note Statues.
Inspiration Note (green).pngInspiration Note (green) Green inspiration notes restore 5 inspiration instantly when collected and cannot be placed in the inventory. They are dropped by all enemies.
Inspiration Note (red).pngInspiration Note (red) Red inspiration notes restore 10 inspiration instantly when collected and cannot be placed in the inventory. They only appear when the Marching Band armor set is worn.
Inspiration Note (yellow).pngInspiration Note (yellow) Yellow inspiration notes restore 8 inspiration instantly and provide a random level I empowerment to all nearby players when collected and cannot be placed in the inventory. They only appear when the Rhapsodist armor is worn.
