Reroll on your first draw.
It is highly recommend to obtain three to four SS character styles from your first draw when starting the game. Having SS styles will give you an easier time going through the early stages of the main story, allowing you access to harder content faster.
Level up characters
Characters will have low base stats when first obtained so it is important to raise them by clearing quests. Be sure to do as many quests as you can to have a strong party later on.
Go through the main story.
Below is a summary of the main story quests that you should clear and the useful features that they unlock.
|Chapter Quest||Unlocked Feature|
|1-1-7||Daily Demon Cave Training (twice a day)|
|2-1-4||Daily Rewards Shop|
|2-2-4||Weekly Rewards Shop|
|2-1-10||Daily Treasure Collection (twice a day)|
|2-2-10||Spiral Corridor (challenge)|
|4-2-10||Forest Investigation (challenge)|
Obtain Drop Styles
SS Rouge is rewarded for clearing chapter 1-2-12 on normal difficulty. Note that the drop rate is quite low, so you may need to run the quest a few times to get SS Rouge. It is recommended to obtain SS Rouge as early as you can as he is among the best dropped styles in the game.
Other SS Styles Drops
You can obtain other SS styles as rare drops by clearing other quests on very hard difficulty, though you should have a high-level party before attempting them. When choosing an SS style to obtain from these challenges, try to go for one with ability attributes that your party currently lacks.
S Style Drops
Doing tower event quests allows you to obtain S drop styles. It is recommended to obtain S versions of any SS styles you may already have to inherit useful abilities.
Increasing character stats by clearing quests and challenges is essential to progressing through the game. Before you begin doing quests, start by forming a party with a strong overall attacker as the leader. Note that there is a leveling cap for each quest episode. Before doing a quest, check the character icons at the top of the screen. When a character’s icon is shining, it means that they will gain increased stat values in your chosen quest.
Upgrade Styles in the Dojo
Access the dojo to raise the level of character styles by using up experience points on them. Upon leveling up, a style’s stats will also increase, making them more powerful when used in battle.
Raise style level caps.
You can obtain “pieces” of a character style to raise their level cap. Pieces can either be specific to a style or universal, the latter being extremely valuable as it allows you to raise the level cap of any style.
Clear harder episodes to increase stat values.
You can try to increase your characters’ stat values in early-game quests by doing the harder difficulty ones if you find yourself stuck on a normal difficulty quest. This is because most enemies encountered in the early stages on hard difficulty are actually weaker than those in the latter stages on normal.
Equip weapons and armor
Characters will deal more damage and gain increased stats by equipping better weapons and armor. Note that the type of weapon that can be used varies from character to character. Try to go for equipment that best suits your character’s best features, such as those that increase strength for attackers and intelligence for mages.
While there are various ways to obtain equipment, decent weapons and armor can be acquired just by going through the main story. You will naturally want to get rare equipment drops as you progress into harder quests. Focus on strengthening your characters first before grinding for rare weapons and armor.
Equipment Evolution Stones
Equipment evolution stones are rewarded for clearing daily quests. These change up each day so it is recommended to take note of the dates when a particular evolution stone you want is available.
You can send five characters on an expedition to increase their stats and items. This is a good alternative to regularly grinding experience in battle.
Characters will take a while to return from expeditions, though you can use jewels or expedition tickets to let them come back immediately.
You should send characters that you do not regularly include in your active party on expeditions to allow them to raise their stats outside of battle.
Adopting certain battle formations will have various effects on characters in your party. These range from raising or lowering certain stats and even the probability of being targeted by enemies. Be sure to choose a formation that gives you an advantage over enemies you face in battle.
Formations are unlocked by going through the main story quests.
S and even SS rank styles are rewarded for clearing certain timed event quests. It is recommended to do a few of them, especially when you have acquired only a few characters in the early stages of the game.
Garuda Event Quest
New players should try to clear the Garuda event quests in the early stages. Items and character pieces can be obtained even attempting them with a relatively low-leveled party.
Study Room Training Event Quest
The Study Room event quest is available very month and allows you to train characters against weak enemies quickly gain experience. This event quest is good for raising the HP of characters to 700, though more challenging content should be cleared to go beyond that.
After clearing chapter 2-2-10, the Spiral Corridor challenges will be unlocked. Clearing these challenges rewards you with a gacha ticket, allowing you to obtain more characters for you party. Keep in mind, however, that the Spiral Corridor is reset every month. This means that you can miss out on getting new characters from the gacha if you do not do them.
More Challenging Quests
You can obtain items that uncap character ability values by doing the quests found at the Back Dojo. There are four difficulty levels available, with the first two unlocked during the early stages. The quests change daily, so it is worth checking them out when you can.
The Robin Cup pits nine of your characters in 3-on-3 matches to various special rewards. Since you will likely not have a lot of characters available to use in the early game, it is recommended to save entering the Robin Cup for later.
