Five's a Crowd
Version 2.0.0 completely overhauled Wyrmprints as we know them, enabling more dynamic customization around individual kits. Although each Wyrmprint only carries a single effect, players can now equip up to 5 Wyrmprints at once. Furthermore, these Wyrmprints are divided between three 5★ slots and two 4★ slots with the possibility for set bonuses through Affinities.
While the usual suspects have seen some shuffling around, the core priorities for DPS adventurers remain unchanged. The general formula for achieving maximum damage is as follows:
Affliction Punisher | Skill Damage | Strength | Critical Rate | ???
Factors like content and adventurer kit can vary widely, so the fifth slot is flexible on a case-by-case basis. For example, Gala Luca prefers more Crit Damage, while Gala Alex wants a Strength Doublebuff pick if supported by Patia or Grace.
Note: Several different Wyrmprints now share the same effects, but feel free to use whichever is most easily unbound. All categories are sorted by descending rarity. More on this under Example Loadouts.
For reference, the Ability limits are as follows:
- Skill Damage: 40%
- Force Strike Bonus: 50%
- Recovery Potency: 20%
- Strength: 20%
- Skill Haste: 15%
- Critical Rate: 15%
- Critical Damage: 25%
- Broken Punisher: 30%
- Dragon Time: 20%
Unconditional 30% 5★ Picks
The final flex slot can vary widely by adventurer kit, so here are top picks by niche:
With the general damage picks in mind, we can dive deeper and think about rarity. Since affliction punishers dictate the meta, different elements will have either a 5★ or 4★ slot automatically reserved. Lets run through two example loadouts:
Assuming that combo counts are kept up, the remaining 4★ slots can be delegated to Crit.
Broken Punisher plays towards Wands’ burst playstyle while HP conditions are easily maintained from range.
Not worth building around for DPS, but supports appreciate some extra icing on the cake. With more flexible slots, supports/healers can afford to cherry pick Wyrmprints for some marginal benefits.
