Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced recipes apply to a specific range of rarities.

  • 1 ~ 3 stars: Beginner
  • 4 ~ 6 stars: Intermediate
  • 7 ~ 9 stars: Advanced

The stats on a crafted item are based on the level of the crafting recipe. Please take note of the following situations:

  • Items will lose their all-class status and other special parameters during the crafting process.
  • By achieving a Great Success (大成功), the item may gain the chance to be used by multiple classes or reduce the stat required to equip it.
  • However these parameters are lost again upon re-crafting the item.
  • Crafting items that originally had high offensive/defensive power may find their stats lowered after extension. However, the stats required to equip the item may be lowered, making it easier to equip as a result.
  • If you re-extend an item using the same level extending recipe, you have a higher chance at achieving Great Success (大成功)!
  • Once you craft an item, you will not be able to return it to its original stats.
  • In addition, the item is bound to owner after crafting.
  • Sega plans to release more crafting recipes in the future!

Great Success (大成功) Effects

  • Chance at increasing the number of classes that can equip the item.
  • Chance at creating an all-class item.
  • Chance at relaxing the required equipping stats.

Unit Extend

Unit Recipes

Striking Defense Leg Unit Recipe

Units on the other hand are separated into arms, legs, and rear, and are categorized by striking/range/tech defense. Though the final results for all recipes are the same values, you can change the required equipping stat based on the chosen defense type.

Recipe Details Pane

  • 対象カテゴリ: Target Category [Arm, Rear, or Leg Unit]
  • 対象ExLv: Qualifying Extension Level. (Initially starts at ~ LV.1)
  • 対象レアリティ: All Rarities
  • 必須[Stats]: Required Defensive Stats
  • クラス: All Class
  • 実行後ExLv: Extend Level After Crafting

The stats shown at the bottom will rewrite the item's base stats.

As previously mentioned, the unit recipes are categorized by striking/range/tech defense. This alters the stats needed to equip the item. For example, if you chose a "Rear Striking Defense" recipe on a unit that typically requires "Range Defense", it will change that unit's requirements to "Striking Defense."

Before you craft a unit, please be aware of the following:

  • Inherent elemental resistances are lost after crafting. You can compensate for this by affixing special abilities that increase them.
  • Hidden HP/PP/Resistances are lost after crafting, but you gain some back based on the defense type of the crafting recipe:
    SDEF = HP+30 PP+1
    RDEF = HP+20 PP+2
    TDEF = HP+10 PP+3
  • By achieving a Great Success (大成功), the required stats to equip the item will be lowered. However this aspect is lost again upon re-crafting the item.

Great Success (大成功) Effects

  • Relaxes the required values needed to equip the item.

Unit Extend Levels and Stats

Ex.Lv. Req Equipment S-DEF(+10) R-DEF (+10) T-DEF(+10)

2 392 186(260) 166(232) 166(232)

4 440 210(294) 190(266) 190(266)

Unlocking Recipes

In order to unlock new recipes you must craft an item several times. There exists a form of progression that unlocks recipes by their categories. (This is indicated below as [A] → [B]). For example, after [A] crafting a ★1-3 Striking weapon five times, you can unlock higher level beginner crafting recipes. Then you can work towards [B] crafting ★1-3 striking weapon 25 times at Extend Level 7+ to gain an achievement.

You can jump around to Tech and Range weapons and unlock recipes in their particular rarity brackets. Jumping around unlocks achievements faster which helps to increase your craft level.

Basically the formula is: Striking weapon achievements of a particular rarity bracket will unlock other Striking weapon achievements in that same bracket. S-Def Rear Unit achievements unlocks other S-Def Rear Unit achievements, and so on and so forth.

 

Tech Customization

Tech Customization allows you to alter the performance of a technic. From its power and speed, to its hit number and range. When you craft a technic, it creates a "Custom Disk" giving you the option to overwrite a particular technic's performance. But there's a sinister threat lurking within customized technics…

Technic Recipe Details

  • メリット Merits
  • デメリット Demerits
  • 特殊効果 Special Effects

Custom Technics have both positive and negative attributes, known as "Merits" and "Demerits." Merits can contain bonuses like increased speed or power. Demerits, on the other hand, can increase PP costs or charging times among other things. Merit and Demerit values are chosen at random, thus, it can create situations where the negative effects outweigh the positive.

Custom Technics also have special effects that may increase the status inflicting rate, increase the firing speed of technics, among other things.

Technic Customization has two outcomes; you can either Succeed (成功) or Greatly Succeed (大成功). If you achieve the latter, you'll receive better outcomes for your Merit and Demerit values.

 

Technic Selection

Technic Selection

To craft a technic, first select the Technic Customization menu (explained at the top of this post), select a crafting slot, and choose the available technic recipes. You can gain more recipes through crafting and unlocking achievements.

 

Craft Foie

Success! (成功)

Crafted technics are sent to your inventory, giving you the option to decide whether or not to apply it. But before you do that, please take note of the following:

  • Initially, when the crafting system was first introduced to the game, customized technics were not able to return to their original states. However, as of March 5th, 2014 you can trade in some items at the Recycle Shop to obtain a Reset Disk.
  • If you are unhappy with the results, you can overwrite a customized technic with another custom disk with better (or worse) values.

Technic Recipes

As of January 15th, 2014 there are two recipes for each technic. Each Technic Recipe follows the  [prefix] [technic] [recipe#] nomenclature.

Initially when you start out, you'll only be able to select some technic recipes by default, but you can unlock more by unlocking achievements. These can be unlocked by recrafting the same technic recipe over and over. In addition, you can unlock other technic recipes by crafting recipes within the same element.

For example, if you want to unlock Resta, you must first craft light technics once to unlock an achievement, then five times to unlock the next achievement, then 25 times to unlock resta and other light element recipes.

In addition, since there's two recipes for each technic, you can unlock the second recipe by crafting the first recipe 5 times. For example, lets say you want to unlock the second Gi Grants recipe "集中のギ・グランツレシピ1" Concentrating Gi Grants Recipe1. You must first craft the original
"閃光のギ・グランツレシピ1" Flashing Gi Grants Recipe1 five times to unlock it.
