# Follower Guide
______________

Followers provide 2 things for the player

1. A side/mini game to compete and progress in
2. Stats for player

## Side/Mini game

The mini game portion of followers comes in three variants.
- Dawn Output
- Sky Tower
- PVP Arena

### Dawn Outpost
Dawn outpost is an afk questing mode. Each follower has 2 "abilities" that help counter each quest. The success rate of the quest goes up if you assign heroes with matching abilities. Each quest has a minimum rating that a hero must meet in order to help finish the quest.

### Sky Tower
This mode is an ever increasing difficulty-based tower, with 80 levels currently. Most levels will require at least 1 tank follower, and 1 healing follower (Picchu). The setup used to clear the 80th tower on chinese server:

Gruder (tank),  Picchu (healer), Lilia (Dps/CC), Kaya (Dps/single), Kanal (DPS/aoe)

While this means using these for the entire tower means no wasted stat, it is by no means an absolute in terms of usage for most things.

### PVP Arena
Players can queue up against other players, pitting their follower teams against eachother

- You bring 5 followers into each match
- Gear/Level/Stats MATTER. It is not Fair Play.
- You can queue for up to 10 matches
- Ranking based on number of wins and speed??? (many have 10 consecutive wins, but ranking differ)
- You can change your team from match to match
- You receive random Follower Based Rewards for both wins and losses
- Occurs Monday and Wednesday at 20:00 Server (No more PTR :ngnlrip: )

## Follower Stats/Skills

Followers have the same stats that normal players do, and 6 item equipment slots that can be equipped with items purchased from the adventure store. The following bullet points describe both how stats work, how skills work, how to level each, and what is efficient:
- A player may only "activate" 5 followers at a time.
- Activated followers transfer a % of their stat back to the player.
- The transfer % of stat is solely based on the activated followers FIRST skill (the protector skill)
- The protector skill DOES NOT BENENFIT the follower itself, only the main player (by transferring more stat)
- WHITE stat gained from gear applies to the follower, and follows the same transfer % as normal stat back to the player
- PURPLE stat gained from gear (also known as resonance attributes in game) affect the follower, and transfer 100% to the player (not effected by protector level of follower)
- Since the game is a very dps focused game, its advisable to only level the protector skill of 5 dps followers, and only activate those followers when doing raids, etc. (YMMV)

### Leveling Followers
Followers level in 3 ways:

- Stats
- Skills
- Potential

#### Leveling Follower Stats
- Followers utilize an exp system to get more stat.
- EXP items can be bought from the adventure store
- There are "level tiers" worth reaching when investing into a hero. They are 40/50/60/70

#### Leveling Follower Skills
Each Follower has set skills that can be unlocked and leveled, that help in the Sky Tower mode, or help transfer stat to the player.

- The rarity of the follower (C<B<A<S<SS) determines how many skills the follower will have (2,3,4,5 repsectively)
- Every follower has a "Protector" Skill as one of its skills, that's sole purpose is to transfer follower stat back to the player.
- Skills are unlocked using followers as fodder.
- Skills can also be unlocked using "Unbound" stones of the same rarity as required follower. These drop from skytower.
- Skills are leveled with purple leveling stones. These drop from sky tower, and can be gained from dismantling excess followers.
- Skills can only be leveled up to the current level of the follower.

#### Leveling Follower Potential
Each follower has a stat multiplier called "potential". Potential multipliers are just a coefficiant on the followers base stat from level and equipment.

- Potential comes in 6 ranks, 0,1,2,3,4,5
- Each rank of potential increases the base modifiers for potential
- Potential can be leveled by using the SAME follower as the one being upgraded as fodder
- Potential multipliers can be refined to have better rolls for certain stats (the order of refine/rank upgrade doesnt matter)
- There is a very small chance a refine causes a follower to "ascend". This changes the base look of the follower, as well as provides an even higher base multiplier for each stat.
- Ascended potential only means the BASE multiplier is better than it normally is. The actual refine roll itself might be quite bad (think along the same lines of letter grade and number grade on gear)
- A follower will lose ascendance if it is refined again normally
- A follower will maintain its ascendance if it is refined with a special material (drops from skytower)
- Example of potential: Follower has 1k hp from stat+gear. Follower has 1.4 HP potential. Followers actual HP on stat screen is 1400.

## Follower Equipment
Each follower can equip 6 pieces of gear, obtainable through the adventure shop to aid the follower (and thus the stat of the player through transfer %).

- Equipment comes in color rarities: white green blue purple yellow
- The higher the rarity, the more attributes the piece will have
- Purple gear has 1 purple resonance stat (transfered 100% to player regardless of protector skill level)
- Yellow gear has 2 purple resonance stats (transfered 100% to player regardless of protector skill level)
- Not all equipment of same name and rarity are created equally. They are random in value for their resonance stat.
- Resonance stat comes in 3 tiers, low medium and high. Example: Low: .5% crit dmg, Med: 1.0%, High 1.5%

### Leveling Equipment
Equipment is leveled (called enhancing in game) with an exp based system on an exponential scale (very easy to get first few levels, very hard after first few)

- Equipment gains exp by using other equipment as fodder
- Equipment gains 100% of the exp + the base exp value of the item, when used as fodder
- Example: A purple level 17 item used as fodder into a lvl 1 yellow item will yield a level 17 yellow item, +2k exp for the base purple item.

### Socketing Equipment/Followers
The equipment *slots* of a follower (not the actual equipment itself) can be upgraded to provide additional stats for the follower, and thus the player through transfer %.

- Socketing has 9 tiers for each equipment slot
- Socketing uses frost hearts, bloods, fire spirits, and leafs as material to upgrade each individual tier
- Each tier has up to 7 levels (called stars in game, but they look like little bubbles) to it
- Upgrading a tier has a chance to upgrade more than one level at a time. Example, upgrading the first tier of a socket almost always levels the entire tier.
- The higher the tier, the more likely the chance to fail
- The higher the level in the tier, the more likely the chance to fail
- Followers (and thus players through trasnfer %) can unlock "set bonuses" if all 6 sockets meet a minimum tier+average tier level

#### How does Transferring/Swapping Work?
1. Transferring comes in 2 varieties, normal and perfect. The only difference is the amount of EXP swapped (80% and 100% respectively)
2. The all skills (including prottector skill) are RESET, and REFUNDED completely
3. The POTENTIAL remains unchanged, for both followers
4. The SOCKET tier&level are swapped

# Advice for free to play
- Level and use only A or B ranked followers.
- Upgrade potential on tank (for high HP) and healer (picchu, for high energy) first if possible
- Buy the 25k gold boxes till there is a full set of equipment for your 5 activated followers
- Only upgrade the follower protector skill of A rank DPS characters.
- The Goblin mage is a good subsitute for Kanal in the SkyTower lvl 80 clear setup

Great guide, thank you so much.
I have a question and maybe someone will know the answer.
I have Lilia, Gruder, Kaya with fully opened skills and they are waiting for transfer, their potential is lvl 1 or 2, when we use the Fayspan's Panacea, perfect or normal one, i will lose the skills that i already open on those 3 A grade followers or i will keep them ?
