Guards is an upgrade system that unlocks special character skills as well as rising the player’s Power level. It unlocks on level 75. The highest level achievable by an individual Guard is 10. Leveling Guards up greatly increases the character’s stats and allows them to gain new defense skills. Upon reaching level 6, additional features to increase the Guard’s stats may become available. Upgrading Guards requires a special resource called the “Fortune Iron” (can be obtained from the Maze, through the Clan exchange shop, or purchased for 8 ingots or 30 coupons). Each of the Guard’s levels contains 10 stars that need to be lit up to upgrade the item to the next level. Gold Card owners enjoy a +5% bonus to upgrade success rate! Guards Skills: 1. Guard Armor; 2. Guard - TGH; 3. Guard Absorption; 4. Guard - DEF; 5. Guard - DMG RED; 6. Guard - Delay. Note: in addition to reaching the required level, activating a skill will require the corresponding skill book. Skill books can be acquired from events or summoned with a Trigram. Players can additionally use Guards Deity Spheres and Guards Diabolism Spheres to further increase their Guard’s stats, but the number of items that can be used is limited by the Guard’s current level. Participate in various events to earn those spheres as rewards. Unneeded resources can be deconstructed into Souls — another resource for upgrading Guards. Equipping certain combinations of Souls may activate combo bonuses!
