Defense (DEF) – the amount of damage reduction vs physical attacks
Magic – the amount of damage your character deals with magic attacks
Magic Resist (MR) – the amount of damage reduction vs magic attacks
Special (SP) – determines the amount of Fury gained for each ability used
What class types are there?
There are 5 class affinities that each character in the game can fall into.
Warrior is your basic fighter, they deal high damage but are weak against magic
Magus deal high magic damage but have low health
Sentinel characters have high health and focus on utility skills to aid in battle
Gunner characters have one goal: unleash their special ability as often as possible
Assassin characters have high damage potential but weak defenses
They are colour coded for easy identification so you may strategize how to assemble the perfect team and defeat your enemies handily.
All characters start at Level 1 and each character on your team earns experience for a victorious battle, even if they died or were not used during the battle. Once they earn enough experience they automatically level up, boosting their base stats slightly.
What is Rank?
Each character has a Rank, indicated by the number of stars beneath them, which determines their base power. Rank is the strongest indicator of how powerful a character is. Each Rank has a maximum Level and once the maximum Level is reached you will need to evolve your character to the next Rank in order to earn experience once more.
Rank 1 = Level 20 max
Rank 2 = Level 40 max
Rank 3 = Level 60 max
Rank 4 = Level 80 max
Rank 5 = Level 100 max
How many skills does each character have?
Every character has a basic attack skill and a special ability. In addition, each Eddie has a unique Fury skill. Characters can also gain extra skills from Set bonuses, granted from equipping Talismans. To increase the effectiveness of your skills, level them up with Skill Shards.
NOTE: Some skills are passive, meaning they’re always in effect and do not need to be actioned. Passive skills will be displayed on-screen during battle.
How do I upgrade or power up my characters?
With multiple ways to improve your characters, you can tailor them to your play style!
Use Shards to make your characters stronger
Equip Talismans for stat boosts and set bonuses
Upgrade Talisman levels by using Runes
Upgrade skills by using Skill Shards
How do I evolve my characters?
Use Evo Shards to evolve your characters into a more powerful version of themselves. They will be Level 1 for their new Rank.
IEach battle uses Sands of Time to start and has a minimum of 3 stages. In between each stage your team will heal slightly.
Battle is turn-based with your team attacking first, the enemy team attacking you, then repeating until one team is vanquished.
You can swap out your Eddie any time before his turn. After swapping you will have 2 turns before you can swap again.
If Eddie dies at any point during the battle you can either leave the battle defeated (receiving some experience but not receiving any items) or pay Ironite to revive your team at full health.
TIP: If your Eddie is low on health, it’s a good time to swap!
At any time you may change the Speed or turn on or off Auto-Play.
Upon victory, you will be awarded with Gold, Sands of Time, and various item drops. For each star you earn, you will receive 1 Ironite.
Once you defeat a world on one difficulty setting you will unlock the next highest setting. Higher difficulties mean harder battles and, of course, better loot!
Normal – requires 3 Sands of Time to start a battle.
Hard – requires 5 Sands of Time to start a battle.
Madness – requires 10 Sands of Time to start a battle.
TIP: If it’s getting tough to earn a victory, try previous worlds on a higher difficulty!
How do I assemble my team?
Before each battle you must decide on your team to place on the battlefield. You may choose 3 Eddies (2 being held in reserve, ready to swap out if need be) and 2 allies to assist. Simply tap on them to add or remove them from your team.
TIP: To sort available characters, tap on the 3 horizontal lines on the left.
What is team cost?
Each character, depending on their level and power ups, has a value associated with them. When choosing your team of characters to fight with you may not exceed the max Team Cost for your profile’s Rank.
TIP: To free up Team Cost, consider using low rank spare Eddies or leaving them out.
What is the Fury Meter?
Fury is gained for every successful attack you make and your Fury Meter is displayed at the top left. Each character’s special ability has an associated Fury cost, and Eddie’s Fury ability becomes available after you max out your Fury Meter.
How do I fight?
By default, Eddie attacks first, but you may tap on a different character to select them and tap on any enemy to target.
TIP: Many skills can enhance your team’s stats or abilities, so choosing your team’s attack order is very important!
Depending on your Fury Meter, a character may have 2 options – their basic attack or their special ability. Set bonuses may also grant additional abilities.
TIP: Tap and hold on a skill to see more info on it.
If Eddie’s Fury ability is available he can have up to 7 ability options as he may cycle through Past, Present or Future time periods by swiping the screen left or right.
Some skills have different methods for you to manually increase their power:
Timing – tap at the perfect moment to achieve a perfect attack
Multiple timing – 3 opportunities to tap at the perfect moment
Speed tapping – tap as fast as you can to power up your attack.
TIP: Make sure your game is set to 1x speed!
How do I achieve a perfect attack?
It’s all based on timing! Watch the circles beneath the enemy (or your character, if it’s a special ability). When the circles overlap, tap your screen! Perfect attacks do more damage and are usually a requirement for earning more stars for battles.
How many skill effects are there?
There is a large number of possible effects you can either afflict your enemy with or bestow upon your team – negative effects are in red, with positive effects in blue. The number on the effect icon indicates how many turns before the effect runs out. The effect name will display in battle when one is applied.
What is Affinity Advantage?
Each character class deals bonus damage against another class.
A Warrior deals more damage to a Sentinel enemy, Sentinel to a Magus, Magus to a Warrior, Gunner to Assassin and Assassin to Gunner.
How do I get 3 stars?
Achieving 3 stars for each battle is a great way to stockpile Ironite! Tap on a battle to see the objectives required to earn stars. Objectives are also displayed on the Pause screen during battle.
