Guardian Type

Update: Coliseum reward cards have different types, not always Cool.

There are totally 8 Guardian Types. What type a Guardian is is completely random in the hunting areas. All Referral reward Guardians are type Cool.

Below is each type’s relationship to Cool (100% benchmark):

Obviously Ace is the best type, but they are not that common and very expensive to trade. Depending on the Guardians’ skills, some other types may be very useful, too.

As a general rule, types that enhance a Guardian’s stat strength is better than types that covers a Guardian’s weakness. Also, 50% of HP is added to defense in the damage equation. Therefore, it’s better to increase HP than to increase DEF. So for tanking Guardians, Chaotic > Brave > Cool/Powerful.

Chaotic

Chaotic boosts HP and lowers WIS, it’s good for physical damage Guardians.

Example: Titan (Plains), Juggernaut (Volcano)

Sexy

Sexy boosts MP and lowers HP. It is very useful if a Guardian has +4 skill but low MP, since +4 skills require 1200MP to cast. For example, a Cool Titan can only cast +4 once after all the buffs, but a Sexy Titan is able to cast +4 twice. This feature is especially useful against Guardians that have Revival Skills.

Example: Guardians with +4 Skills

Powerful

Powerful boosts ATK and lowers AGI, it’s most useful for physical attack Guardians. However, because AGI is lowered, it is possible that your Guardian can be killed with one +4 attack before it can attack.

Brave

Brave boosts DEF and lowers MP, it’s good for Guardians with MP more than enough to cast +4 attacks twice. This will give them better defense.

Example: Mephistopheles (Volcano), Vampire Matron (Plains), Leviathan (Plains), Ifrit (Volcano)

Fast

Fast boosts AGI and lowers DEF, it’s great for Guardians that already have high AGI, or Guardians that have +4 attacks and can kill opponents in one attack.

Example: Lightning Lord (Volcano), Phoenix (Plains), Titan (Plains), Juggernaut (Volcano), Leviathan (Plains)

Intelligent

Intelligent boosts WIS and lowers ATK, so it’s perfect for Guardians with strong magic attacks and Guardians with high WIS.

Example: Vampire Matron (Plains), Valkyrie (Plains), Dominion (Volcano),  Mephistopheles (Volcano)

  1. What do you think about Lightning Lord - Intelligent and Vampire Matron - Sexy? Are these decent types for the cards or should I try and trade them for the best type excluding Ace.

    Also I have a Valkyrie - Cool Type what orbs should I use to maximize the card in terms of enhancing its strength.

    How is attack order determined in Colosseum as in who gets to attack first is it all agility based rolls?

    1. Int Lightning Lord (LL) is pretty good, since LL only have elemental attack skills (which depend on WIS), and lowering ATK doesn't hurt.

      Sexy Vamp Matron isn't very useful, because base VM (Cool) can already cast 4 times +3 attack spells (VM doesn't have +4 skill without skill magic stone), and Sexy VM can't give you 5 times attack.

      For Cool Valkyrie I suggest you try to boost its WIS and/or AGI. She's high in WIS and MP (and AGI too but not as obvious), but you don't need to boost her MP cuz her base MP is high enough to cast +4 skills twice.

      In colosseum battles, AGI is the main factor in determining who gets to act first, but your Guardian's AGI is not reset after killing an opponent. This means your opponent card (with lower AGI than your card) may attack you first if you've just killed his previous card.

      I've also tested when two people have the exact same card (both in stats and skills) as the 1st card in deck, the Attacker will attack first.

  2. Nice site! Hope we can put together some sort of monster database

  3. Also can you make a post about skills for monster for example what are the best skills to get for Phoenix Revive/Defense/Fire or Revive/Attack Physical/Fire

    1. Yes, it's on my list of "Topics to write", don't worry ^_^

      As for phoenix, normally Revive/Def+20%/Fire+3 is the most common build.

      Delete
  4. stacking defense orbs would be best for phoenix you mentioned agility but its an ace so already very high? is there diminishing returns at all or straight line scaling? Whats proc rate on revive?

    How do you know so much about this game already?

    1. First of all, WOW! Nice job on ACE Phoenix lol. Phoenix has very high AGI, so adding more AGI isn't bad at all, since it'll have higher chance of attacking twice before opponent takes action.

      About AGI calculations, I'm actually not sure (Sorry >_<) as I haven't been able to do experiment on my own, and couldn't find AGI frmulas. The same goes for rate of Revive (all I can say for sure is it's less than 50%).

      I know a bit more than most people and can write this guide becausse I understand Japanese and have a lot of free time ^_^

  5. Really the best and helpful guide ever. maybe I can suggest if you still have time maybe make a list of best skill and type for each guardian except ACE

    for exmaple just like you mention
    Chaotic is good for Titan and juggernaut,

    why not put like Vampire is good when his sexy or intelligent and what are the recommended skills something like that

    1. Yeah that was in my plan. Planning to do it by rarity and by hunting regions. That's a lot of work, so probably gonna do it over the weekend.

  6. Hi,

    What do you think about vampire chaotic? and what is the best type for vampire? thx

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think Chaotic Vamp is a pretty good type. Since Vamp uses only physical attack, WIS is not really important, and boosting that HP adds additional defense.

      Other than Chaotic, Fast and Powerful Vamps are recommended, too. I've seen people recommending Brave Vamp, but Brave Vamp can only cast Strong Physical+3 (his only attack skill) 2 times without magic stone boosting, while other types can cast 3 times. So generally I wouldn't recommend Brave, unless you've decided to use a lot of magic stones.

    2. Thx mate, one more question, what is the best type for Ramiel? (It is perfect if you have a guildline for every guardian:P)

      Delete
    3. I am currently making a recommendation list, starting from 5-stars.

      Delete
  7. I've got a level 31 Sexy Ramiel...would it be worth it to start leveling my level 1 Fast Ramiel in order to eventually use instead? I'm thinking Sexy isn't that big of a deal for this type but Fast could be pretty useful? (also have a level 1 Chaotic but that seems like a horrible fit)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If its between Sexy and Fast, I'd probably value Fast more, but then your Sexy is lvl 31 already, so I'm not sure. It's a tough decision. Chaotic probably isn't as horrible as you think it is, since it has G Cunning (WIS+20%), but definitely not as good as Sexy and Fast.

      Delete
    2. Cool, thanks. I ended up trading the Fast for Slimes.

      I did end up replacing my Brave Vamp (level 14) with my level 1 Fast Vamp after reading the comments here, figured that wasn't too much ground to make up.

  8. Hi Windy, I can confirm that event cards are not just cool types. I just received a chaotic mighty levi.

    1. I'd suggest u boost her MP a little, if you want her to cast more times, and especially if you want to add a +4 elemental skill. Boosting WIS and AGI are also good ideas.

    1. Choosing for the list that you gave me, I'd say Hydra, since he has rivival skill at lvl 50, which makes him better than most other 3*s

      Delete
    2. Thanks! Guessed i shall keep my hydra and sacrifice the rest.

  11. Hey, I got Int Matron. Which skills do you think I should keep? I'm kinda lost here..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just drop HP/MP drain. Eventually you could try to get a +4 elemental skill to replace the physical skill

  12. hi :) i need help again. can u advice me on the skills etc for Hydra? am considering it...

  14. hey WD, been reading your block for a week! Great work here :)
    I wanna know if I should keep my 3* guardian or try to trade them with sth else? There are more and more everyday and I should get rid of them soon.
    btw, I'm currently having a lvl60 Leviathan and lvl55 Hecatoncheir. I'm upgrading an Ace Kraken. Which one should by upgrade after Kraken? : Fast Qiong-Ji, Intel Fafnir, Brave Power, Powerful Jor, Chaotic Revenant, Intel Angel, Brave Vampire?

    1. You can use your 3*s are feeder cards or trade them as feeders for ss. Fast Qiong-Ji and Int Angel are pretty good types.

      Delete
  15. So I have an Ace Qiong-Ji. I'm assuming that it's pretty good? I've just recently started enhancing him after getting my Ace Angel to 51. I'm waiting for Coliseum to end so I can get some special hunting ticket, because I'm getting murdered by 5* Guardians that people have. I never really knew how to hunt for them LOL.

  16. Is Brave type a nice option for lv Angel, what would be best?
    thanks
