Dereth Tarot cards come in two varieties, lesser trump and greater trump. Lesser trump cards are mostly found on monsters under level 45, but are also uncommonly dropped by higher level monsters. Greater trump cards are usually dropped by hero level monsters, but may rarely be found on lower level monsters.

Lesser Trump

There are 56 different lesser tarot; four suits each in the numbers from Ace to King. Each has a unique name like "Four of Scepters." If you're under 45, their only purpose is for the buffs. Once you're a hero, they can be used with the greater tarot for very strong and long-lasting buffs.

Greater Trump

There are 15 different greater tarot. Each has a unique name like "The Seeker," and can be double-clicked to view a unique picture. The titles listed after the card name are the different melds where it can be used.

Unlocking Tarot Melds

Upon reaching Hero status, the Fortune Teller in Cavendo will give you the "Tarot Quest: Significator" subquest. To complete it, just hand her one greater trump card. Which one you choose seems to have no effect on anything, but this card will become your personal "Significator" card. Hold onto this card. It is used to gain the experience rewards from melds as detailed below, and the Significator is never consumed in the process.

Greater Trump Melds

Once you become a hero and complete the Tarot: Significator quest, you'll get quest recipes to create melds of greater trump cards. Each meld will look like a stack of cards or a gateway. The melds that look like gateways can be used for one-time experience rewards or craft experience rewards (see below). The melds that look like groups of cards can be used either for one-time experience rewards or to combine into fate cards for strong buffs.

Fate Card Buffs

The other use for melds is to create strong buffs in the form of "fate cards." To do this, use your meld on the appropriate lesser trump card shown below. There are three levels of strength: spellcraft 50, spellcraft 100 and spellcraft 150. Each fate card may produce one of two strengths. Whether you produce the lesser or greater effect is determined by what number, from Ace to King, the lesser trump card had. Each character has their own personal "lucky number" which can be found through trial-and-error; use your meld with your lucky number and you will receive the message 'You transform the lesser trump into an optimal fate card!' as opposed to the 'You transform the lesser trump into a fate card!' message received when using it with any other number.
