Upgrading Team

From Dragalia Lost Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The main form of progression in Dragalia Lost is upgrading one's team so that a player can boost their stats to tackle higher and harder content. Since a team is comprised of several components (See Team Building), there are several different components a player must upgrade as well. The following is a rudimentary overview of how to upgrade these components.

Upgrading Adventurers[edit | edit source]

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Adventurers level up through two main methods:

Leveling up increases the player's HP and Strength, which in turn increases Might.

Promoting[edit | edit source]

Players can promote lower rarity characters to higher level rarities. Promotion will not only increase the adventurer's HP and Str, but will also increase the adventurer's level cap and unlock higher Mana Circle floors.

The level cap based on adventurer rarity is as follows:

Rarity Level Cap
3 Icon Rarity 3.png 60
4 Icon Rarity 4.png 70
5 Icon Rarity 5.png 80

Promoting adventurers cost Eldwater. The Eldwater cost is as follows:

  • 3 Icon Rarity 3.png -> 4 Icon Rarity 4.png = 2,500 Eldwater
  • 4 Icon Rarity 4.png -> 5 Icon Rarity 5.png = 25,000 Eldwater

Mana Circles[edit | edit source]

See also: Mana Circles

Another way to upgrade an adventurer is to purchase Mana Circle nodes with Mana and other materials. Each Mana Circle node has an improvement for the adventurer ranging from raw stat boosts to skill upgrades, all which improve Might.

For more details on the specific upgrades each Mana Circle Node provides, check the specific adventurer pages.

Upgrading Weapons[edit | edit source]

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Weapons can be upgraded using Bronze Whetstones, Silver Whetstones, and Gold Whetstones. Other weapons can also be used to level up weapons.

  • Note that crafted weapons should not be used to increase EXP, only lower level rarity weapons dropped from quests. This is because crafted weapons can be dismantled at the Smithy for a fee, which will return all the materials the crafted weapon required.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Once the Smithy is unlocked, players can craft weapons to give adventurers. These weapons are much stronger than quest drop weapons, and also have the benefit of being able to be enhanced.

There are three rarities of crafted weapons; however, higher rarities require higher Smithy and Halidom levels in order to craft. Due to the sheer amount of time it will take to unlock higher rarity weapons, crafting lower level rarities is fine. However, if it appears you're nearing the unlock for the next tier of crafted weapons, and you have the materials needed to craft them, it might be a good idea to hold off on that rarity.

Enhancing / Unbinding[edit | edit source]

Within each rarity, there are three tiers of crafted weapons (See Weapon Trees for a full list of all crafted weapon trees). Lower tiers can be enhanced into higher tiers once the lower tier weapon is fully unbound and fully leveled. Each unbind increases the level cap for weapons as follows:

Rarity 0 Unbind 1 Unbind 2 Unbind 3 Unbind 4 Unbind
2 Icon Rarity 2.png 10 15 20 25 30
3 Icon Rarity 3.png 20 25 30 35 40
4 Icon Rarity 4.png 50 55 60 65 70
5 Icon Rarity 5.png 80 85 90 95 100

Unbinding a weapon requires duplicates, which means a player must craft 5 of each lower tier weapon, unbind one of them, level that fully unbound weapon to max level, and then craft the next tier. Players can also use Steel Bricks (4 Icon Rarity 4.png Rarity only) and Damascus Ingots (5 Icon Rarity 5.png Rarity only) to unbind weapons; however, due to the scarcity of these items, it is only recommended to use them on high rarity, high tier weapons.

Tier 2 weapons will have unique weapon skills on the weapon which will increase an adventurer's Might. Tier 3 weapons upgrade the skill and also gain an elemental type. When an elemental weapon is equipped with an adventurer of the same element, this will give the adventurer a 50% stat boost.

Rarity Weapon Recommendations[edit | edit source]

  • For 3 Icon Rarity 3.png rarity weapons, it is generally recommended to stick Tier 2 weapons until 4 Icon Rarity 4.png rarity unlock due to the high cost of 3 Icon Rarity 3.png elemental weapons and saving materials and rupies for 4 Icon Rarity 4.png.
  • For 4 Icon Rarity 4.png rarity weapons, it is generally recommended to craft up to the Tier 3 elemental weapons due to the time and material gate it takes to unlock 5 Icon Rarity 5.png.

Upgrading Wyrmprints[edit | edit source]

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Wyrmprints can be leveled by using Holy Water, Blessed Water, and Consecrated Water to increase HP and Str of the Wyrmprint. Wyrmprints can be also be fed other Wyrmprints to level up.

  • Note that it is NOT recommended to use 3 Icon Rarity 3.png rarity and above Wyrmprints as EXP. This is because when selling higher rarity Wyrmprints, Eldwater is one of the resources given and is the main resource used to promote adventurers. Eldwater is considered more valuable than the amount of Wyrmprint EXP offered.

Unbinding[edit | edit source]

Wyrmprints have 5 stages:

  • Stage 1: The stage a Wyrmprint is usually in when a player obtains it.
  • Stage 2-4: Stages which increase the Wyrmprint level cap.
  • Stage 5: Increases the Wyrmprint's level cap and improves the Wyrmprint's ability, which increases an Wyrmprint's Might.

The Wyrmprint unbind level caps are as follows:

Rarity 0 Unbind 1 Unbind 2 Unbind 3 Unbind 4 Unbind
2 Icon Rarity 2.png 10 15 20 25 30
3 Icon Rarity 3.png 20 30 40 50 60
4 Icon Rarity 4.png 30 40 50 65 80
5 Icon Rarity 5.png 40 55 70 85 100

To increase stages, a Wyrmprint must be unbound. Wyrmprints can be unbound with duplicate Wyrmprints, or by using Silver Keys (4 Icon Rarity 4.png Wyrmprints only) or Golden Keys (5 Icon Rarity 5.png Wyrmprints only).

Upgrading Dragons[edit | edit source]

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Dragons can be leveled by using Dragonfruit, Ripe Dragonfruit, and Succulent Dragonfruit. Dragons can also be given other dragons to increase level EXP as well.

  • Note that similar to Wyrmprints, it is NOT recommended to use 3 Icon Rarity 3.png rarity and above Dragon as EXP. Because there are currently no Dragons below 3 Icon Rarity 3.png, it is recommended to only sell Dragons for the Eldwater return.

Unbinding[edit | edit source]

Similar to Wyrmprints, dragons can also be unbound, which increases the dragon's level cap as well as upgrades the dragon's skills and abilities.

The dragon unbind level caps are as follows:

Rarity 0 Unbind 1 Unbind 2 Unbind 3 Unbind 4 Unbind
3 Icon Rarity 3.png 20 30 40 50 60
4 Icon Rarity 4.png 30 40 50 65 80
5 Icon Rarity 5.png 40 55 70 85 100

Dragons can be unbound with duplicates or with Moonlight Stones (4 Icon Rarity 4.png rarity only) or Sunlight Stones (5 Icon Rarity 5.png rarity only).

Bonding[edit | edit source]

From the Dragon's Roost, players can feed dragons daily to increase their bond level. This is beneficial in that:

  • The dragon will gift the player back Dragonfruits which can be used for dragon level gain.
  • Increased bond level will increase dragon transformation duration for more damage gain in battle.
  • Every bond level is 10 Might.
  • Once a dragon is at Bond level 5 or higher, their Dragon Story becomes available. This grants you Wyrmite.

Upgrading Facilities[edit | edit source]

Some facilities offer stat boosts which benefit a player's team, such as the Altars and Dojos. The material cost for facilities differs, so view each facility for more detailed material cost information.
