Used to explain important game features to the player, the advisor will periodically appear in the top left-hand corner of the screen to give warnings and suggestions, their portrait flashing when a new message is triggered. Although his/her default state is to play audio only, there is an option to show both text and audio together via the tooltipped buttons at the very top of the screen, where you can also isolate one or the other. There is also an option to hide the advisor graphics for the piece of advice currently being displayed. Left-clicking on the advisor portrait will repeat the audio for the advice that is currently on display.
Advisor Back Button
If you wish to hear or read a piece of advice again after it has played or been dismissed you can do so by clicking on the back button. Each click cycles back one piece of advice in reverse order - the latest piece first.
