How do candles work between mobile and Nintendo Switch for Sky?
Overview: Candles purchased in Sky are restricted in usage to the platform they were purchased on (Mobile or Nintendo Switch). This ultimately means that your candle balance may change depending on what platform you are playing on especially if you play Sky on both Mobile & Nintendo Switch
Types of Candles There are ultimately two types of normal candles that can be obtained.
Earned: Candles a player has gained through playing Sky or being gifted Examples:
Forging by collecting Light
Reward for Daily Quest
Seasonal Candles come with Gift Pass if you are sent by your friend
Reward for winning official events (e.g. weekly poll, screenshot challenge)
Purchased: Candles a player has gained through in-app-purchases on mobile or through the Nintendo Switch eShop.
Any Candles / Seasonal Candles purchased at in-game Shop
Seasonal Candles come with Adventure Pass for your own
Candles bundled with any IAP items (e.g Starter Pack)
Whenever you use candles in game, your purchased candle currency will always be used before your earned candles regardless of the platform. Examples are below:
Example 1: 15 purchased candles through IAP on their mobile store
Phone candle balance will show as 15
Switch candle balance will show as 0
Example 2: 15 candles purchased through eShop on their Switch. 50 candles earned through playing/candle runs
Phone candle balance will show as 50
Switch candle balance will show as 65
The restrictions outlined above apply to currencies only which includes candles, seasonal candles as well as Gift Pass (see details below). Any non-currency content purchased with candles, hearts, or in-app-purchases will be available across platforms.
Important : You'll need to send a gift pass to your friends from the platform (Nintendo Switch or Mobile) it was originally purchased on. For more information about Adventure Passes and how these restrictions apply to them please reference the "What is Adventure Pass?" FAQ page
