Weapon Tips

Barbara

Make Sure To Check Weapon Effects

Some weapons are made to suit a certain character or element. Check the weapon description to see which character they are better equipped to.

Obtain Strong Weapons Through Wishing

You can obtain most of the strong weapons through wishing. If you are having trouble with your character's stength, obtaining strong weapons might help. Note that you can also get a 4★ weapon by getting rank 30 in your Battle Pass!

Check Out Wish (Gacha) Guide Here!

Refine Duplicate Weapons

If you receive doubles from wishing, do not be upset, you can use the duplicate to increase the base stats and effects of the weapon by refining the weapon.

Enhance & Ascend The Weapon For Stronger Stats

Make sure to Enhance your weapon of choice to the max level. This will boost their base stat which will make your character extremely strong. A fully enhanced 3 star weapon can be stronger than a 4 Star weapon.

Check Out Ascension Guide Here!

Use 1- 2 Stars Weapon To Enhance Your Weapons

1-2 star weapons normally have near useless stats. However, they can be used as fodder to upgrade your stronger weapons.

bennett should be one of the recommended characters for aquila favonia since his q's attack boost scales off base attack. thoma should be one of the recommended characters for staff of homa because he gains shield strength and additional damage with more hp.
