To train your cat, it must fit certain requirements:

A manual is a special kind of resource that player receives as rewards in PVE campaigns, tournaments and during account progression. This is an ERC-20 token that we transfer to your ethereum wallet.

*To facilitate the gameplay in the KotoWars Alpha, you don’t need to train specialists using the manual.
