Character Limit Breaking And Rarity
There are 4 character rarities in the game, each with their own max level cap:
While you can naturally find R, SR, and SSR characters, the UR rarity can only be obtained by limit breaking an SSR a unit. Limit breaking is used to increase the rarity of a unit. It can only be performed on a max level unit and it costs materials and resources. Each time a unit’s rarity is increased, their levels reset to 1.
Character Associations Guide
Most characters will share a bond with other units. When paired together, these associations grant the active character extra stats. Some bonds activate Combined Attacks which empower the character’s ultimate skill. Pairing units correctly to activate these bonds is a crucial part of building strong teams.
Character Race & Type Guide
Characters all have a race and a type. A lot of uniques grant bonuses based on these traits. Since there are a lot of variations of the same character, players often use their type to differentiate them. For instance, they might refer to the two Elizabeths as Green Elizabeth and Red Elizabeth. There are 6 races and 3 types.
Character Costumes Guide
Costumes are more than just cosmetics in this game. Each one comes with a set of substats that empowers characters when equipped. There are costumes for body, weapons, and hair. Each character can have up to 5 of each costume equipped, but only 1 of each actively on display.
Costumes can be obtained by limit breaking characters or purchased for gems, PvP coins, or gold. Some costumes are shared between variations of the same character.
What the best option for equipment? Attack, HP, and Defense? Those 3 stats are definitely the must-have status on equipment. But it depends on the characters, characters that focus on healing might better use the Recovery Rate option more than HP options.
Characters that inflict Fatal damage might better from Crit Chance options than Attack options. Maybe some characters are really strong when stacked with lifesteal. There is too much variance for it to be a simple answer. If you are feeling frisky, go out there and experiment!
Can’t I just use an SR piece instead? The trade-off between the power you gain for the resources you invest is not worth it in the long run. You will reach a point where the SR pieces will not be good enough anymore and you’ll need SSR ones instead. At that point, all the resources you invested in the SR gear will be wasted.
Instead, if you focus on C gear, the investment will still be wasted at some point, but the amount is not even comparable. If you want numbers, the lowest main stat roll on an SSR piece is higher than the max main stat roll on an SR one.
Where do I get C quality gear? Good question! You can buy C quality gear from the town vendors. Each piece costs 2,000 gold with the exception of Orbs which cost 10,000. You might be tempted to buy multiple pieces until you get a good main stat roll, but it is cheaper and faster to reroll the stat from the item menu.
Almost every collectible in this game will have a quality level. The qualities for gear are the following, starting with the weakest:
⦁ – C
⦁ – UC
⦁ – R
⦁ – SR
⦁ – SSR
These rankings can lead you to believe that an SSR piece will always be better than a C piece, but that is not the case. While a fully upgraded SSR item will have a higher main stat than a fully upgraded C piece, their secondary stats can be exactly the same.
Equipment Main Stats
Every piece of gear will have a primary stat attached to it depending on the slot it goes into. The value of the stat will be assigned at random within a pre-determined range. Items on the left, meaning Bracer, Neck, and Belt, have higher main stat values than their counterparts on the right.
To better illustrate the difference in stats, let’s take a look at some numbers. The following tables show the highest possible value for each slot depending on the quality.
Slot C UC R SR SSR
Bracer 300 400 600 900 1300
Ring 200 250 350 500 700
Slot C UC R SR SSR
Neck 150 200 300 450 650
Earring 100 110 160 220 320
Slot C UC R SR SSR
Belt 3000 4000 6000 9000 13000
Orb 1400 1750 2450 3500 4900
Every piece of gear also has a set of 5 secondary stats you can unlock by upgrading it. Just like the main stat, these secondary stats are pre-determined depending on the slot. However, the value of these secondary stats is percentage-based and is not determined by the item’s quality.
Both an SSR and a C quality Bracer have a secondary stat that ranges between 1% and 3% Attack. The only thing that changes is the cost of upgrading and rerolling them. You can roll the same secondary stats on all five slots.
Just like before, let’s break down the numbers. Here are the possible substats for each slot and their possible values.
Bracer / Ring
Stat Lowest Highest
Attack 1% 3%
Pierce Rate 2% 6%
Crit Chance 1.5% 4.5%
Crit Damage 2% 6%
Neck / Earring
Stat Lowest Highest
Defense 1% 3%
Resistance 2% 6%
Crit Resistance 1.5% 4.5%
Crit Defense 2% 6%
Belt / Orb
Stat Lowest Highest
HP 1% 3%
Regeneration 2% 6%
Lifesteal 1.5% 4.5%
Recovery Rate 2% 6%
Gear Sets Guide
On top of all that variance, you will also have to be on the lookout for the optimal gear sets. Generally speaking, you will want a 4-set HP and 2-set Defense on your support and tank characters, and a 4-set Attack and 2-set Defense on your damage dealers.
For healers, you can also consider going with a 4-set Attack and 2-set Recovery Rate to increase their healing output. In rare cases, you have some options when it comes to damage dealers.
You can sacrifice defense for more damage by going with the 2-set Critical Damage instead of Defense. I recommend this on characters that either inflict Cutting damage or have high crit chance and crit damage base stats.
You can also change the 4-set Attack for a 4-set Crit Rate on characters that inflict Fatal damage or have a really high crit damage base stat. You can find gear set recommendations on each character’s individual page.
So what does this all mean? Long story short, SSR pieces will always have the highest max main stat, but all qualities have the same max secondary stats. The real difference comes down to cost. Every time you want to reroll a main stat, upgrade an item, or reroll a secondary stat, you have to spend gold.
The lower the quality, the cheaper the cost. Keep in mind that you not only need to fully upgrade each equipment, you also need to make sure that both the values and the secondary stats are the ones you wanted.
When you are first starting out, it is recommended to fill your right-hand slots, meaning Ring, Earring, and Orb, with fully upgraded C quality gear. Their secondary stats should be the same as their main stats.
Meaning that for rings, you want attack secondaries, for earrings you want defense, and for orbs you want HP. In an ideal world, you end up with 15% of each. More realistically, you probably end up with around 12% of each.
For your left-hand slots, meaning Bracer, Neck, and Belt, you want to equip 0-star +5 SSR quality gear. Do not spend gems to reroll their main stats. If you find another SSR piece with a higher main stat roll, upgrade that one to +5 and use it. It only costs 15,000 gold to do it.
This method allows you to power through content without investing a large number of resources by relying on high percentage secondary stats. As you progress deeper into the game and collect more resources, you can slowly upgrade all your equipment into SSR pieces with good secondaries. Use anvils to reroll their stats instead of gems.
The Boar Hat Taverns serves as the central HUB for this game and it is where you will appear every time you log in. You can decorate, collect daily rewards, meet characters, and much more inside the tavern.
Things to do, While some activities in the tavern are completely optional, others are very important. Here is a list of everything you can do inside:

Once a Demon is defeated or 60 minutes go by, the demon will disappear and you will be granted a 20% discount buff for the town you saved. This buff stacks with the 20% you get from donations, for a total of 40% discount on the town’s shops.
