    I wrote this a little while back, but it's still relevant!

    A few notes:

    Amp ATK benefits slide attackers more than tappers, but it's great for both.

    Amp AGL is very useful for Ragna and World Boss attackers, as it adds damage to weak point attacks.

    Amp CRT works well for World Boss and PvP attackers, but does not benefit fever attacks unless you have focus buff. (e.g. B. Hildr)

    Amp DEF and HP boost are great for PvP supporters and defenders.

    Cores with regular, non-amplified stat boosts can be good for healers and non-damage dealers.

    Debuffers often hit two or three times and can generally benefit from amplified ATK/AGL/CRT more than supporters, defenders, and healers.

    Also, sometimes only partial ignition is enough to greatly improve a child's skills. For example, 5 cores in Light Werewolf changes her defense down debuffs from flat amount to a percentage.

    EDIT: For example, here are the cores I use for PvP. I got lucky with these!

    PvP attacker - (Courtesan Bathory) -
    Amplified ATK core with Amplified DEF and HP

    PvP supporter/defender - (Thisbe and Athena)
    Amplified DEF core with HP and HP

    Here is my personal advice from a F2P player since global launch. (in fact "almost F2P", i gave something like 50 euros, because Devs deserve money)

    The most important thing is to focus on one Attacker for each element in order to ensure the completion of all damages goals (from events) for each Ragna/World Boss, and get all the rewards possible.

    There is most of the time 2 or 3 attacker for each type that can do the job, some are more versatile and also useful in PVP.

    Almost every time, the best childs to ignite are the 6 hit on Slide.

    From my memory :
    Water :
    - Eve (OP Tiers in PVP too)
    - Mafdet (solid in PVP, probably better in PVE than Eve)

    Fire :
    - Bathory (solid in PVP, uber strong in PVE)
    - Lovely Leda (more PVE)
    - Tiamat (more PVP)

    Wood :
    - Ayane (absurdly strong in PVE)
    - Daphnis
    - Hel (no 6 hits, but it's almost the same with her bonus damage in WB ONLY)

    Dark :
    - Kubaba (High Speed : too much charisma, OP in WB)
    - Khepri

    Light :
    - Sniper Hildr (more a PVP character in the design, but she is still the best option in PVE i guess)
    - Frozen Gale Aria (Hel is almost identical to her in another element, WB Only)

    Maybe i forget some options, but these ones are clearly no mistake.

    I'm not a fan of characters which are designed to perform in Ragna (yet) because every 6 hitters max ignited will one shot the Ragna boss anyway...
    In the last Ragna i was able to finish the fight in 3 minutes (in X3 speed) with a Mafdet Max Ignition +6 and she was really debuffed by the boss mechanics.

    Hope it will help !

    General Info:
    - Any Core that has only 1 AMP stat, save for leveling. Don't scrap it for BGs, not worth it at all.
    - AMP DEF should only be paired with AMP ATK, HP, or DEF. The others don't pair well and fail to contribute much to optimization.
    - Attackers should be the top priority for Ignition. Then Supporters -> Debuffers -> Defenders -> Healers.
    - Prefer 6-hit slides over 4-hit taps. Bonus DMG and Weak Point DMG buffs tend to come with slides, so the loss of speed for the most part is covered by the extra DPS.

    Stat Info
    - AMP ATK: Boosts ATK obviously
    - AMP DEF: Boosts DEF obviously
    - AMP AGL: Boosts Weak Point DMG
    - AMP CRT: Boosts CRT DMG (does NOT affect CRT chance)
    - Reika and others have more specific numbers regarding these.

    Raid Strats
    - Your Attacker at the very least should have AMP ATK and AMP CRT. The third slot is optimally another AMP ATK or AMP AGL. Pair with Pantheon or Melpomene, Newbie Mona for Aid boosts, followed by raid specific Childs.
    - Forgo healing, you won't be needing it. Focus on DPS; doesn't matter whether you have 90% HP or 1% HP left, a one-shot is a one-shot. If you have Light Neptune, then you got both bases covered.

    WB Strats
    - Focus on Igniting 2 Attackers per element to launch your DPS. Focus on 6-hit sliders before moving onto 4-hit tappers
    Fire: Courtesan Bathory, Sole Sword Tiamat
    Water: Eve, Mafdet / Thanatos
    Wood: Ayane, Daphnis / Mech Commander
    Light: Gunslinger Hildr
    Dark: Khepri, Kubaba
    - Ignite Shrine Werewolf and Sweet Sytry (Light) to Level 5. Their debuff and buff, respectively, go from a flat number to percentage.
    - Ignite 4* Calchas to level 5 Ignition to get another Dancing Blade. it stacks with Lady Bathory's Slide as well as Sunbeach Mona's Drive.

    PVP Strats
    - Courtesan Bathory is queen. Slide targets other attackers to nuke offensive teams, free bonuses without conditions, and a tap that boosts attack. Definitely a priority to Ignite. Recommend AMP DEF / AMP ATK / AMP ATK or AMP CRT (depending on Pantheon/Melpomene).
    - A personal favorite of mine is Ignited Cube Moa (Light). Drive improves to hit 3 targets, Slide now has a 80% chance to reset skill gauges on top of petrifying for 3 hits instead of 2. A minor improvement at first sight, but can hugely delay the actions of the opposing team.
    - Typical Cores should have AMP DEF and AMP ATK at the least. Attackers should have another AMP ATK or AMP CRT if Pantheon is on your squad. Every other unit could use more AMP DEF.
    - It's difficult to Ignite specifically for PVP without getting in the way of other content. Unless you want to create another unit entirely to support that, it's a weighing decision dependent on how active you are in the top 100 of PVP. Collecting your 50 wins and cashing in free crystals and coins? Don't bother being fancy with AMP DEF cores. Want to consistently cash in a top 25 performance on a weekly level? Go ham.

    Best guideline : Follow the guide that the winner of this event has produce.

    From my experience : use your ressources wisely to ignite one attacker from each type (water, wood, etc, you can use a quality tiers list like if you don't know which one to choose)

    You want to one shot enemies if you can

    PvP Defenders, Supporters, and Healers: AMP DEF, HP HP
    Suvivaling is most important for these types of Childs

    PvP Debuffers: AMP ATK, AMP DEF HP typically
    They damage well enough that they neee AMP ATK but generally you need them to slide more than once

    However, core materials are hard to obtain so please consider events that give out more materials so that us players can test out more teams.

    P.S. Also please consider releasing endless or a new Collaboration

    AMP ATK Cores:

    Keep decent substats(ATK, CRT, AMP CRT). Cores with the substats of HP*2/ AMP DEF*2 would be kept for PvP Usage.

    AMP DEF Cores:

    Keep decent sub status(AMP ATK, HP, DEF). Only 3 types of cores are good: AMP ATK*2/ HP*2/ HP+DEF.

    AMP AGL Cores:

    Only 1 core is good: AMP ATK*2

    AMP CRT Cores:

    Keep decent sub status(AMP ATK, ATK, CRT).

    The rest of the Cores are just fodders.


  • Loffy LV.7 Nomad Mar 25, 2021, 04:05 PM

    Oi! Shouldn't it be the devs who explain what each stat gives not other way around? xDD
    People have figured out for most part but there is still debate over it here and there, and for players who aren't active on forums or discord there is literally no information in game what exactly each base stat even affects (as in damage, debuff chance, etc)

    I don't feel comfortable sharing info I have because few people who did extensive testing or spent a lot of resources and probably even real money to figure these stats asap or looked for some game code brakedown to figure it out so this should for sure go to them.

    Core choosing

  • Got Zookd LV.7 Nomad Mar 28, 2021, 06:26 PM

    hi, suppose we have AMP AGL (main)+ 2x AMP ATK. According to above image, does this mean such core falls under "put to ignition process"? But this core is really good for pve content

    Ignition Core Guide for Free2Play Player's

    1. Acknowledge the Fact Ignition got released 1 year earlier and you don't have any time to hoard currency.
    2. Finally be free of the feel of despair when the next element comes, cause all are released.
    3. check mats
    4. check credit card
    5. cry
    6. wonder why endless duel and racing are missing, but ignition is here to throw money into the game.

    Sorry but how all of this went down we don't need guides. we need a better developer. cheers.

    Ignition cores can be crafted in the Forge. It requires 99 core mats and a 5* base child. Each core comes with 3 stats determined by RNG.

    REMEMBER! Only the main core (or the FIRST core) you put on your child determines what 3 stats you get on the child. Every other core you put on the same child are fodder cores to complete the ignition ritual. The middle 5 cores you put on will upgrade your child’s skills. Please look at them carefully as some Childs do not require full ignition to be great units.

    AMP ATK – increases skill damage. Does NOT affect heals and does NOT affect skill damage that is already % based such as Hella’s slide skill. This stat is good for just about everyone, but the best to have for ATTACKERS.
    AMP DEF – reduces skill damage. AMP DEF is as simple as it comes, it’s good for every non-attacker unit and is a vital stat increase for ALL PvP units (even attackers). You should make a ton of these due to universal usage.
    AMP AGL – increases WEAKNESS damage and slightly increases slide/drive damage by a random amount. This is essentially PVE stats for attacker units. Keep in mind AMP ATK increases more damage than AMP AGL. Its effect is also reduced in PVP so its not desired there.
    AMP CRT – increases CRITICAL damage. Amp crt is also reduced in PVP making it undesirable.
    After the amp stats, each normal stat, HP, ATK, DEF, AGL, and CRT can also appear on the core. HP is a desirable stat in PVP and on WB front row units to tank hits.

    For PVP – AMP ATK, AMP DEF, and HP are the only stats worth having. Attacker units will want AMP DEF, AMP ATK x2, while other units are aiming for AMP DEF, AMP ATK, HP or AMP DEF/HP x2.

    For PVE – Attacker units: AMP AGL, AMP ATK x2. Everything else: Some variation of AMP DEF/HP/flex. You want to avoid putting ATK (not AMP ATK) on supporter units to avoid them stealing buffs from your top attacker unit.

    When you create a core, the first stat is always the stat of your core material. For example, 99 amp atk core mats will make an AMP ATK core. This is relevant because the first stat you have has more value than the other 2 stats. If you look at a full ignited unit, you see this Eve has 400 AMP ATK and 300 AMP AGL. This means AMP ATK will give even more skill damage vs having 300 AMP ATK and 400 AMP AGL.

    So, when you can't make the perfect core, use AMP ATK materials to create a core for Attackers, and AMP DEF materials to create a core for non-attackers. An AMP ATK, AMP AGL, ATK core is perfectly fine for PVE.

    Final thoughts: Because ignition costs a LOT of resources, it is best to save up and only fully ignite a unit until AFTER you have all 12 cores. This gives you the best chance to get the best stats you want for your main core.

    We don't know what Amp stats mean. GGs.

  • wavedash LV.7 Nomad Mar 25, 2021, 03:49 PM

    Amp Attack is the best DPS stat for all modes. Amp Agility and Amp Crit are great for PvE. Amp Agility is slightly preferred on Ragna-focused attackers because it affects Fever damage, and Fever damage is much more important in Ragna than World Boss.

    Amp Def and HP are the second-best stats for PvP-oriented attackers. Amp Agility and Amp Crit are nerfed in PvP.

    Non-attackers mostly just want Amp Def and HP. Other Amp stats aren't useless on them, non-attackers just aren't great at utilizing them. Amp Attack is pretty good on PvP debuffers, especially if your debuffers are a large portion of your team's damage, but for most players, cores with both Amp Attack and defensive stats are better used on PvP attackers.

    Be careful with giving units cores with regular attack, because it can potentially mess with supporters' targeting. Flat stats other than HP aren't worth much.

    My little notes:

    - First ignite Attackers with Amp ATK core.

    - I use Amp Def to tanks, or supporters (rarely..)

    - Rarely igniting supporters or debuffers. When yes, mostly following other's units.

    - PvP is not my desk..
