I just finished playing the game in my White Robe form after getting it a while back and it felt like a TOTALLY different experience. It felt more beautiful for some reason, but I think I still love the Red robe better.
Awww~ You achieve white robe status once you collect all the orbs. The orbs are the ones you take in to make your scarf grow larger. There around 12 in total if I remember correctly. Most are easy to find but the tricky ones are the ones that are in the moving sands desert. Once you collect them all you will unlock the white robe. :>
And its not a stupid question dear! Thats the best part! You can switch on and off the between the red robe and the white. The white is best when you want to deeply explore the game because you never run out of scarf power. Your scarf automatically recharges it self compared to the red robe where you have to go recharge it. Both are good, but it just depends what you want to do :>
thanks again ^^<3! okay thats really cool I am sooo gonna go find all those, i remember I got a bunch through my first run through so Ill look more closely at the sand fall run part. XD This has really helped me :3
