Why is it in Japanese?
The official English patch just came out on April 11, 2016. To switch it over to English just head on
over to the Menu then look for the button with the cogs around it. From there it should be the
bottom option that has the word language on it and select English.
EDIT: The first time you open the game, the language option is just under the Start button. Yay.
Just be aware that current guides may have different wording as they were made before the
Is my first 10 roll is always the same?
The first 10 roll will always have the R-rank ranger as part of the tutorial. The second one is
usually a random assortment of rare weapons with one super rare weapon and one rare character. After
that standard rates apply. SSRs have a 3% chance of being rolled except on Legendfest where they
have a 6% rate.
How gacha dependant is this game?
SSRs are nice and all but most of your stats come from your weapon pool. Most of the time you'll be
using weapons dropped from missions and bosses as the ones from the gacha are difficult to limit
break. Also some SR characters are just as good as SSRs. Do save your crystals/tickets for a Legendfest
however as you will want to pick up some SSRs eventually. If there is something you really want you can
usually pick it up from a Surprise Ticket or Start Dash for a reasonable price.
From what I have heard, Cygames is usually pretty generous with the freebies.
What can I buy with my crystals in the meantime?
I would say buy at least 50 more inventory spaces and one weapon stash. Having to empty out your
inventory every second battle can be tedious and you wont need a summon stash right away.
Okay, what kind of team should I focus on first?
It's better to start working towards a mono-element team. Wind is usually the easiest as you can
pick up a SSR character and a SSR summon from playing Bingo or Poker. Light and Dark teams have a
harder mid game as their element bosses or Omega bosses (or Magna summons if you prefer) do not have
Attack-Up SR weapons and have a much lower drop rate for their SSR stuff. If you get more characters
of a certain element feel free to go with that element.
At the start where you just have a mish-mash of characters and elements you can use the summon
"Grand Order" as your friend summon. Grand Order gives you 100%(200%) more damage if there are three
characters of different elements on the field at the same time. Its quite the boost at the start!
But what if I have more questions?
There are quite a few guides out there. I suggest heading over to the GBF Ultimate Guide at some
point and maybe hitting up a few tier lists. XIEI has some nice guides as well.
Wait, what is a Yoda?
Oh! SSR Yodaruraha makes the beginning and mid parts of the game really easy. While having three stacks
of his buff up causes his Charge Attack (or Ougi) hit for 999999 non-elemental damage. He is quite the glass
cannon though and falls off late game.
