Epic Seven Beginner Guide and General Tips – The guide is written based on biased POV of AkioKlaus#2607, who hasn’t played the game for about 2 months in the 3 months of Korean server only days. The guide will be in a bit of rude tone and may meme a bit Also the guide is not really step by step The guide was made before to release of the Global server, so vocabulary may be Incorrect.
You just did the tutorial and you can now gacha’ (1-4 part), Jepeng: 1-4 is where they will force you to choose a nickname. This nickname will be Unique and can not be changed at any point in game. And even if you delete the account, this nickname will be lost forever (it will says unavailable as if someone is still using it)
For rerollers: get sez or destina from here. If you failed, you can simply delete your guest account by logging out’ No need to delete the game. Others: just draw as you Wish and move on. Sintaro#6775: If you press back button on your phone several times after clearing 1-3, you can skip the Arky equipping tutorial and such. The important part is the end of the initial tutorial, where the reroll gacha banner unlocks. (1-10 part)
From here, you are going to aim for 5 ⭐ character, since you can only keep one batch of 10 rolls from the 30 batch, and the previous batch will be lost when you roll for another.
- I want to clear 10-10 for ML gacha as soon as possible ➡ Destina
- I want to clear game fast and smoothly ➡ Sez
- I want to play easy and just invest in one char for everything ➡ Ravi
Akio : My personal recommendation is Destina, if you do not have Achates or Angelica. Aither is just painful to use.
Nitex : I recommend sez but if you go sez route you need either Arming, Achates or Angelica Sez is best dps for most story content and makes auto-farming faster (aoe passive) FucSh1a: Since the other 2 recommended the others, I recommend Ravi as she provides herself as a solo tank + bruiser. She is capable of soloing golem raid (which provides end-tier equips of a certain set), and can be used in pve content outside of story as well.
3 – 4 ⭐ chars and artifacts to look out for :
Silk (You can get her later for free), Dierla, Kiris, Achates Angelica, daydream joker, future candle, tonfa, Arming, Cidder, Corvus Karin, Latz Carmine Rose, and there are likely some I have missed or became worse/better in future. Ask the community as needed.
Epic Seven Global Discord Guide
So as of 11/7/2018, general chat is basically where people hang out and have fun over epic seven meaning its meme chat where stuff isn’t taken seriously as much. What this means, is if you need help, go to #help. If you want to ask about gacha and stuff, go to #gacha-results and such. As memes change often, they will be discussed at the end of the guide.
Basic Tips Epic Seven Questions and Answer
Q : What do I do with dupes?
A : feed it to the same char. Its better if you save it until the character is max IVI and needs to do uncap. You still get superb effect by using dupes on uncap.

A : Keep calm, and press top left corner where it shows morale and such. It shows map, and everything you missed will be in clear white icom If you want to get them, simply forfeit the fight and the stage will stay the same With exact same loots.
Q : What to do with dungeon coins? TS accessories where?

A : until 5, should not even matter because it is so easy. 5-6 is green, 7—8 is blue, 9—10 is red. Game gets harder starting 8.
Q : Ok, what is uncap and superb?
A : one at a time, uncap is raising the character’s max level. This affects character’s strength tremendously. It costs same rarity character of any kind, one per ⭐ on the characteL So If the character is 4 ⭐, it costs 4 characters at 4 ⭐.
Q : Innate rarity matter?
A : No. Even if pu drag 2 ⭐ character to ⭐, you won’t be using 2 ⭐ fodders for uncap, you will be using S S ⭐ fodders Also, innate rarity has nothing to do with stats. Higher innate rarity affects the awakening material requirements as well.
Q : What was superb again?
A : When you feed dupes to the same character, they get a slightly higher base stats and gain/enhance formation buff Using the character will give a buffto certain stat to certain positions in the party, top, bottom, left, and right. Note that the character with the formation does not receive its own buff from the formation.
Q : Can I upgrade my units to 5′?
A : Yes’ Every unit even 2 ⭐ can be upgraded to You do this by max leveling the unit at that respected ⭐ so a unit must be IVI 30 to raise to 4″ and so on. This Includes the phantasms, use phantasms as fodder for your units. The menu is the same menu for awaken/enhance click this when at max level and instead of leveling you are promoting the ⭐ level.

A : You can get seeds from guild store and pvp store once a week, and mandrake from green transit stone once a week. Highly advised to get them’
Q : Where to farm gold and equips?
A : Usually Maze Later you use hunt for equipments but that isn’t beginner guide. The maze has golden chests, which provide really good gear. These chests are at a fixed location and don’t respawn. The gear given by these chests are also fixed. A notable equipment early on in the first set of mazes is a T3 necklace attack set, With a main stat of critical rate.
Q : What do to with breath of Orbis7
A : Invest freely based on what you want, people usually upgrade the Heart of Orbis for more skystones, or the Forest for Phantasma (uncap fodder).
Q : What is ML gacha?
A : Special gacha that only draws dark or light CHARACTERS. You can do this for free fyou log in for a whole 30 days, or do normal gacha a lot (120). Challenge Modes hardest difficulty give 1 piece as well for achievement Completion of all event missions will reward you with 1 piece as well.
Q : I wanna whale. Where to spend?
A : those 5 —30 dollar packages are usually a great value. Believe it or not, more expensive, usually worse it is because it IS aiming at the different user class, the whales. Basically, pay to buy time level Dolphins can consider the monthly daily gem package. That’s approximately S5 USD? And gives you gems + 10% exp boost daily.
Q : Can I get Heyst or Crowe from reroll gacha banner?
A : It only Includes initial gacha pool, so no. Sorry Il You can get them at 1-4 tho’
Q : Why is X Character considered OP? Nothing looks special or there seems to be a better version7
A : Due to hidden skill ratios and such. Users have been testing to guess the skill ratios and characters have somewhat variance in max stat With this, end up with weird cases such as Gunther who has highest stat, do really poor damage because he can’t crit, but also his Is skill damage ratio is only 0.9. Most characters have base IS ratio of 1.58.
Q : I have no luck so all I have free chars and 3 ⭐. Who to use?
A : Elson, Lonna, those mentioned on reroll guide, Aither (you need healer if you don’t own any Ras (Use soul bum on 2s to spam 2s), Montmorency. (Replaces Ather to clear 10-10 if you don’t have healers)
Q : my inventory is full’
A : can either increase the size (really cheap’) or can start selling items and feed them. I personally sell all greens and blues, and keep white as feed (cost same and give same exp, but sell price is different). If you are In urgent need of exp, feeding green is not too bad either.
Q : I’m too scared to try this stage’
A : If you retreat or fail etc, the stamina is refunded. However, you may have to heal up your party afterwards which requires gold.
Q : Do I pay Cartuja 800k?
A : No. NO no no no no no. No.
Q : no 10 r0119
A : It encourages overspending so the devs took it out There is 1 Ox package which gives 3 penguins and give you discount of 50 skystone at the shop.
Q : How do you use Phantasma efficiently?
A : You will notice that they are max IvL Use fodders to uncap them at least once. They have passive skill which gives you more exp from gameplay, so it is recommended to level them more and then uncap and go on until as needed.
Q : How do I unlock Elson quest?
A : Clear maze once. They guide wou like tutorial so don’t sweat!
Q : What is combat readiness?
A: Combat readiness the official translation for the action gauge. What is the action gauge9 It’s the vertical bar on the left of the combat screen. When your character icon reaches the very bottom, the character has reached 100% combat readiness, and is their turn. Certain skills and artifacts can help boost pur combat readiness, reduce or even steal enemy combat readiness.
Q : Should I achieve 100% tile discovery rate in dungeon maps9
A: For Maze/Labynnth only. They give you special reward at 100%.
Q : Isn’t this game scam? How am I supposed to tell if this character is available or not in normal gacha9
A : If they are dark/light, or have weird prefix on their name, they are from moonlight.
Q : Is tower of Abyss like tower of despair from different game? When does it reset?
A : When devs feel like resetting it, so far it never reset. We did change loots once, no news of people who already cleared it getting new loots.
Q : What on earth is this equip stuff?
A : color is the rarity, which decides the substats_ Tl—6 is the tier, basically how good the tem itself k. Higher rarity has slightly better stat (skips one tier if red-ish) and have better substats. Colour tiers/rarity from worst to best: grey/brown green blue purple red. Every 3 levels, a substat is levelled up given that there are no more substats to unlock Red has every substat unlocked so a random substat will be buffed at IVI 3. On the other hand, grey has zero substats unlocked at IVI 0, so every 3 levels, a new substat is unlocked until level 12 (so only when the equip is IVI IS will 1 of the substats be increased). Rarity also affects the main stat of the equip. Tiers also affect the base level of the substats as well.
Q : Where do I get right hand side gears? Especially the necklace and ring7
A : Necklace and Ring are usually gained from t2—tS accessory box. While it is not t6, it is very useful nonetheless. Shoes can be crafted from hunt. T6 accessories can only be obtained from the bartender as of 11/8.
Q : How to tell fit is a good gear?
A : Simply, referring to this Image- Ones on the left, labeled 1, look at sub stats. Ones on the right, labeled 2, look at main stats (but subs are still important!)
Q : what items do i give to characters?
A : too many to list for best gears, but for generic idea, atk+crit for dmg char, hp/def based on ur tank’s skill ratio, hp/atk based on ur healer’s skill ratio, spd on supports and debuffers, effective on debuffers.
Q : Why do people sell penguins?
A : Gold is short whereas Ivling characters are kind of easy.
Q : What can i Know About item stats?
A : Tanks have it easy since armor and def is everw,’here, but for dps chars, you are forced to get ring as atk main stat
Q : Stage 8—10 is too hard, this is p2w
A : im sure even p2w can’t beat these unless they have IVI 55 chars Wing around What you need is proper strategy and most importantly, BORROWING NRC. Ludwig, Romann, Yuna etc, which we look down upon is super strong since the NPC are in maxed out skill level.
Q : How to get more mega phantasma to IVI 30 for 4 ⭐ ?
A : I personally feed penguins if I don’t feel like running stages with them. 2 2 ⭐ blue penguin or 1 2 ⭐ and 3 1 ⭐ blue penguin and etc. Do note end game users Just sell penguin for gold.
Epic Seven Game Core Mechanics
Some beginner stuff this is. But this is to keep down the people asking what to invest on. It is a fair question, this game does require a decent investment per character. Does not feel good when you invest in a crap char. Below are based on Korean guides, which are bit outdated so it may not be exactly accurate. Honestly, these are all user research which could be a hoax.
1. Blind7 Accuracy9 Hit9 Resist7
So blind reduces HIT rate of your attack. If fail to hit the enemy, you miss an attack and do only 70% of the intended damage, With no crits or debuff possible So you want to land a hit on your attacks Accuracy actually refers to debuffs. Accuracy and Resist directly allow/prevent debuff hitting your character or missing.
2. How do buffs and stuff counter each other?
Attack buff loses to Invulnerability. Which Loses to debuff, because you can still be debuffe& Which loses to immunity, since you can’t debuffthem anymore. But immunity doesn’t stop an damage, so attack counters t. Buff ban beats all buffs. So what do you do if enemy buff bans you while they cover themselves in immunity and invulnerability7 Dispel beats immunity and Cleanse beats buff bam Now in PvE some boss mechanics bend these hierarchies so beware. Immortality is likely invulnerability that keeps you at lhp
Tip: Destina and Achates are the only healers as of 11/7 that cleanses then heals, where other healers will not heal characters with heal ban because the cleanse happens after heaL
3. How strong are the buff and debuffs7
Extremely. Blind reduces your hit rate by 50%. ATK buff/debuff is 50%, DEF buff/debuff is 70%. How much difference does def debuff make? Weak foes usually boost your damage by 20% where later stage enemies will give you easily 70% damage boost.
4. How is damage calculated?
(atkx atk ratio ) + ( stat x stat ratio) x element ratio x (mini crit, crit, miss) x situational dmgratio x enemy defense reduction rate. In example (900 atk x 1.2) + (spd stat 100 x 6.2) x 1.1 x 1.3 x 2.0 on stunned target x enemy has def down.
Mini-crits occur randomly when you do not crit, and the damage will be larger than usual. Mini-crit is 30% multiplicator, crit is multiplicator based on your crit dmg stat. Miss makes ;nyur damage lower, causing you to only do 70% of the damage. Your debuffs will always miss and you can not cnt/mini-crit.
Elemental advantage is 10% damage multiplier and a bit of crit rate boost. The disadvantage is 50% hit rate reduction and do 10% less damage.
5. Why do some debuff skills not have damage?
Intended design to help with the debuff rate Not doing damage prevents the action from not hitting, so pu can debuff disadvantageous element easier. 6. How does Effective (debuff accuracy) work? Based on one Korean user, ../. , the skills have debuff proc rate, which then goes through a check to see if proceed debuff lands on the enemy using the accuracy and resist Base accuracy is likely 100%. Soul burn on some skills that says @nore enemy resist means resist in this part Some bosses are immune to certain debuffs, they can not be penetrated by soul burn resist ignore. Example: Skill has 50% chance to apply def debuff. This means Wau have 1/2 chance to proc debuff, then it has to penetrate enemy resist. You have 20% accuracy, and enemy boss has 60% resist. Your accuracy is 120 – 60, so you have % chance to land pur debuff Pretty low. Lastly, to prevent perma stun and such, debuff accuracy can not go higher than 85%. So while Base is 100%, there will be 15% to miss.
7. How to make tank gain aggro?
So while it sounds funny, the method is to bring weaker element as the tank. Fighting fire foes? Bring Destina or Lots. fighting ice foes? Bring maya and such. The lead character has roughly twice the aggro of everyone else, like 20% 20% 20% 40% ish (speculation based on experience, so you see how unreliable the aggro E) but that number is affected by who is weak and strong element of the enemy.
Epic Seven Strategies and MEMES
Here we will talk about some strategies and memes that may lead to fun experience or stronger team.
1. Holy Trinity of 3 ⭐ (DEAD): Rikoris, Tieria, Elson + A
You heard it, rikoris tieria and elson all have better versions. They are still good chars, but Wau can get better chars based on ur need.
2. Blood boiling fire team: Dingo, Surin, + healer + A (kiris optional)
Dingo is very underrated unit who can apply tons of DOTS with Is triggering 2s_ His 3s is often mistook to be garbage by some users due to 6 turn cd, and the image -lcd per kill brings. Sounds like it is only for farming and can’t use 3s in IV 1. Wellm you are wrong’ Here is how it goes Skill upgrade makes it S turm 1 cd reduction is team wide so he himself gets the effect, making it 4 turm Oh, awakening the skill also gives EXTRA TURN’ So that is now technically a 3 tum skill So this skill matches is 1 turn quicker refresh than Rikoris’s lcd reduction and spd buff for 2 turns. So Dingo can supply teams fast cooldowns and cleanse. Any debuffs on you, all gone instantly.
Compared to Rikoris, Dingo inflicts huge amounts of bleed and burn so he can dish damage too. Surin is the bleed master that used to be hidden thanks to Sigret. Unlike sigret and her horrible proc rate on Is, Surin has proc rate of 100% if enemy is already bleeding. If it bleeds, pu can make it bleed more’ And her 3s is almost a free turn with enemy bleeding from all 4 limbs of their body. Her 2s is only 3cd and also applies 1 turn of attack debuff just incase But wait, there is more’ Her 3s extends debuffs by a turn, allowing 2 turn of attack debuff’ So the two of them share bleeding part, and that they are DOT characters who benefits well from skill casting over Is spam. You can easily outspeed enemy boss With Surin to apply the attack debuff every turn the boss attacks, and each turn the boss will be bleeding way too much’ As bonus, Kins can add poison to their bleeding and burning and also extend the debuffs by a turm Kiris can also refresh her 3s faster with Dingo serving her delicious meals.
WARNING: Don’t use this team against Destina or certain special bosses. You often end up giving enemy a free turn or tons of hp because game hates DOTS sometimes 3. 400 rune was worth it team: Chlorina, FK-luri, Khorne Berzerker, + healer (likely boeing 747 Hazel and Rooshido)
WARNING: 400 advanced rune costs roughly 1200—1800 gems worth of stamina, and may find yourself with sudden 4mil gold after months of begging for more gold. So other than Commander Lorina, pu may ask what is good about crap char and nerfed char? They got speciality change and they are op__. after a price. You can make better team by using each of them at their respectable locations, but why not FLEX SUPER HARD when you farmed this much!
It also comes with benefits :
- 3 ⭐ chars. Easy to earn(minus Church of the Illios axeman)
- Cheaper to awaken and skill level being 3 ⭐ chars
- Power to meme for using 3 ⭐ chars
So here are basic powers of each char Chlorine: Has highest raw dps in the game, matched by Luna. Class change gives her the power of CR push on 3s and pull on Is to prevent enemy fight back while herself continuously pokes for faster turns. Easiest to remove as she lacks utility, but also easiest to add since you always want a dps for dps checks. Sadly not pvp friendly due to passive requiring build up.
FKIuri with base speed of 116, she is fast tank with also CR pull on Is, as well as 10% cr pull to random ally on attack. On top ofthat, she has 4cd cooldown 2turn debuff package of taunt, dispel, and def debuff that can not miss because it does no damage! Lastly she heals team’s hp by 2% each turn and has free sklvl IS R&L Building speed and defense, will learn how any attack becomes deadly if foe is def debuffed, and that she can perma taunt a unit due to fast speed and occasional double turn Useful in many Abyss floors, PVE, Raid, and especially as PVP atk and defense use Kluri to say FK u to Diene or Shadow Rose’ (warning that while her 3s is elementaless, Al will still target water first.
Meaning she taunts Yuna when she attacks all 4 of you any.%’ays.) Darius, the Khorne Berzerker who worships the chaos god Khorne Flakes: One who used to be high dps as default Lorina but with perma def debuff, now the mighty axe god has returned after nerf as the ultimate bruiser Basically making Azalea homeless in regards of dps tank, He still holds extremely good damage, if not higher due to specialty change buffs He is packed with high hp, and 3s still being a very good def debuff that now heals his hp by 20—30%, and does damage that also scales with about 20—25% of his max hp on top of the Ishot tier atk ratio You will find him lumberjacking with 3s 2s Is 3s 2s Is combo where he executes enemies one by one to collect their skull for the skull god. This is the true power of Chaos. Flight Attendant: Hazel can perma atk buff herself while healing using soul burn.
