Charm Necklace

Charms are the primary long term progression in Popup Dungeon. Charms can be obtained for free from tokens awarded based on performance in a run, purchased with gold from the tokenator, or from combining charms together. Up to 5 charms can be equipped and active at a time. They provide minor to major bonuses that apply to all party members across all runs. They range in rankings from lowest at plastic to highest at Perfect Diamond, which determines the potency of their bonus, as well as the effect they have on the dynamic difficulty of encounters.
