Evolving Fighters [Leveling and Limit Breaking Guide]

Evolving Fighters [Leveling and Limit Breaking Guide]

Overview

Welcome to the leveling and limit breaking guide for KOFAS! In this tutorial, we will be going over how to level up your characters and also getting them to max level.

Leveling

Leveling is easy and you can get levels by either using your fighters in battle or feed them experience capsules to level them up quickly.

Experience capsules can be obtained from story mode, epic quest missions and certain special events.

Early on from player levels 1 to about 60, you will have to utilize the EXP dungeon as much as possible to quickly get your fighters from level 1 to 60. Story mode leveling will be a slow grind and not effective to level your fighters.

The EXP Capsules

 

  • Common – Gives 200 EXP
  • Medium – Gives 600 EXP
  • Rare – Gives 2400 EXP
  • Elite – Gives 12,000 EXP

The EXP dungeon offers the following mode:

  • Easy – Gives common, medium and the occasional rare capsule
  • Normal – Gives medium, rare and the occasional elite capsule
  • Hard – Gives 4-6 elite exp capsules
  • Expert – Gives 6-8 elite exp capsules. Only available 3 times a day

Once you get to mid game where you start farming epic quests, they start to give medium, rare and elite capsules often. You won’t ever have to use the EXP dungeon since you get so many from it.

Evolving

The good thing about this game is that evolving doesn’t require the fighter to be at max level to evolve. You can evolve them even when they are level 1! This is great because some fighters are great for their leader skill and you don’t really use them to fight.

When evolving a fighter, their leader skill improves and you get the best stats once they reach 6 stars. Each element will have their respective items you need in order to evolve them. You can farm their materials from the respective elemental dungeons.

For evolving Attack Types, they need “Swords” the most. Balanced Types need “Jade” the most while Defense Types need “Mirror” the most.

Evolving 3 Star to 4 Star

Evolving 4 Star to 5 Star

Evolving 5 Star to 6 Star

As you can see, the final evolution to 6 stars require the rainbow item that you can either farm or craft. In summary, the costs of evolving:

  • 3 to 4 Star: 10k gold, small jade, sword and mirror (quantity 4/4/4 and +4 of type)
  • 4 to 5 Star: 30k gold, medium jade, sword and mirror (quantity 4/4/4 and +4 of type)
  • 5 to 6 Star: 100k gold, large jade, sword and mirrior (quantity 4/4/4 and +4 of type) and 2 rainbow jade/sword/mirror (dependant on type)

To craft the rainbow jade, sword or mirror, head over to the craft section under the gear menu at the top right of your home screen.

You will need 30k gold, 4 ruby/sword/mirror of each element to get it. This will be a bit of a time and gold sink early on when you lack both resources. These items will also be given out in special events and you will get quite a bit of them even if you play the game casually.

Limit Breaking

Now without limit breaking, the max level of a fighter can only go up to 60. Limit breaking allows the fighter to go from 60 to max level of 90. This gives a tremendous amount of stats but it does take a bit of time to get everyone to 90, especially festival(purple border) units like Orochi Iori, Leona, Original Zero etc.

To limit break, you need souls. There are various souls in the game for specific types. Let’s go over them real quick.

Regular Souls

These souls can be used for regular fighters not from the All Star category.

  • Bronze Soul – Used to limit break bronze (3 star fighters)
  • Silver Soul – Used to limit break silver (4 star fighters)
  • Gold Soul – Used to limit break gold (5 star fighters)
  • Purple Soul – Used to limit break purple (Festival 5 star fighters)

All Star Souls

These following souls can only be used on All Star category fighters.

  • All Star Silver Soul – Used to limit break all silver (4 star fighters)
  • All Star Gold Soul – Used to limit break gold (5 star fighters)
  • All Star Purple Soul – Used to limit break purple (All Star Festival 5 star fighters)

Elemental Souls

These souls are flexible and can be used to limit break fighters of their respective colors. The rainbow soul can be used to limit break any fighter. They are rare and hard to get.

To farm for elemental souls, you need to head to the elemental advent dungeon that rotates weekly.

As for rainbow souls, you can get them from special events and also from Time Attack weekly, if you can clear the event fast enough to be in the top 5000 in rankings.

Fighter Souls

Fighter souls can be gotten using a few ways:

  • Farming story mode for specific character souls
  • Selling unwanted souls for soul dust in the exchange shop for regular fighter souls you want (FES and All Star fighters are not in the shop)
  • Maxing fighter affinity for an extra 50 souls

When limit breaking a unit, you can use any of the above to do it. I suggest limit breaking your strongest fighters to 90 first, then focus on other ones. Purple (Festival) fighters are harder to limit break as their souls are harder to come by.

The requirements for limit breaking are:

  • From 61 to 70 -> 10 souls, 10k gold
  • From 71 to 80 -> 20 souls, 20k gold
  • From 81 to 90 -> 30 souls, 50k gold

The total amount of resources required to get a fighter from 60 to 90 would be 600 souls and 800,000 gold.

Farming Fighter Soul Location

Here are all the available fighters you can farm souls for daily (max 3 per day).
