Pretty much this is a guide to characters and bossing only
, If you want game information or have any questions, check out the discord FAQ section and game guide below the game.
-Added Trade Section
-Updated Character List for one full year worth
-Updated Daily Boss Section Sunday (Light)
-Added Character Release Timeline
-Changed Daily Boss Section to include Tuesday (Fire)
-Updated Daily Boss Section (Thursday (Wood))
-Guide became characters and bossing only. Totes not because of laziness.
-Guide was half-made
What is X-Overd?
X-Overd is a game that suffers from power creep. Nutaku version has a shaky direction as well. Will it last with whales still playing the game? Who knows but the power creep nature of the game demands free players to befriend whales in order to easily clear content.
Keep in mind that these are my opinions as a free player after playing 1 year in DMM X-overd.
Character Map Summary
White Marking means, either needs cash/planned crystals to be strong.
Units are ranked by number in their respective groups. E.g. 1 is top
Attacker: Group A (Single target attackers), Group B (Mages), Group C (AoE), Group D (Status)
Supporter: Group A (MP healers), Group B (Buffers), Group C (Attack Hybrid)
Defender: Needs None
Healer: Needs None
Red= You will probably just level this unit purely to level.
Blue= You may use a lot.
-Grand Fest Units require pay to fully evolve, unless you somehow last 5 grand fest units without spending.
-Free Dungeon units Momiji and Hariko are fully evolvable for free, provided you clear their content.
-Navi is unlikely to come to Nutaku version, due to LoW closing down, so awkward if collboration event is tacked on. Nutaku might bring Navi though, may even mark up her prices to be higher.
Boring strategies used to steamroll the bosses, I will release them on the day they are released and you can check here if you need help with forming a tactic to beat them.
Some good bossing characters but not necessarily grinding characters: Freesia for prolonged fights and Meifan for the first boss. Will release more upon new char releases.
There is a certain character that makes the Forbidden bosses easy, just wait. It is possible to do now, just that at this point in time I would recommend saving the stamina to become powerful enough to dps race the boss.
Disclaimer: I will only release wood boss for now. Solely because until treasure dungeon is finished, it is not worth the stamina-exp ratio. Unless you want to ofc use L/XL eggs with the highest base exp possible.
Copy this team. Keep in mind Shiedle is the leecher slot. Use Meat if you want to hasten the process. Use L/XL egg if you want to live life dangerously, up to 144k char exp with XL egg, Shien needs about 1000hp after egg reduction to live a small physical hit though. At least run a test run to see if you can do it before using eggs.
With a XL egg, you get this result. Note: My leecher was Schwartz. Tbh I still dont know why some units get much more (see Frezia) than others. Perhaps someone can tell me.
It is suggested all males have max evolution on all jobs possible to ensure max MP. MP is a huge concern when attempting bosses.
Also both Crimson and Wood boss both share the same attack pattern, just differing elements.
SSR Shien/SSR Schwartz to do up to 99k damage, Shien with his Scarlet Flaming Air Daikatana
lvl74 skill, Schwartz with his Ground Breaking
lvl74 skill. Aguni weapon advised for Shien, Valentine Katana for Schwartz. Shien is better against Wood, Schwartz is general all-purpose due to doing neutral damage against all elements.
Any, you can place anyone here, if you want, you can go another Nuker but dont heal their mp. Leechers still have to contribute in some way, like Dim Shield, Self-mp heal etc. If you want, you can go SR Shiedle
and alternate between Mikoto and Shiedle silence skills to manage mp.
SR Mikoto at level 64 learns Soul of Truth
(180mp) which ensures silence for 3 turns. Important to shut down the daily kin bosses. He also has access to Swift Heart. With boots, he still cannot outspeed the daily kin bosses, but if he casts Swift Heart twice during the waves before the boss, he can. This is why he is a better option compared to Shiedle.
SR Elio to constantly use Boost Brave
. You can try to save Meifan
by stacking shell but with the amount of turn leeway, you can afford to just cast brave on Shien to speed things up. You can go Nonno here but if you are f2p, she probably has a low mana pool at low evolution count.
SR Frezia for the mp heal. MP heal is based on character level
and not job level. MP heals around 375 max for ballad III. R will not cut it.
to be the sacrificial doll. Can be 0/6 if you want. Generally should be collaborated assist with a person you can talk to so you know which accessories they have. Assume your tank will die
. Have her constantly use the Mighty aggro skill (40mp) and then when you are about to receive a physical hit, use her Lv74 skill to reduce the damage taken by -50%. If the meifan is slower than the boss (no boots) use it on the turn before.
Alternative: Once you become more relaxed, can do this comfortably, equipped Shien with Aguni 2H sword 2*/ Schwartz with Valentine Katana 2*, then you may consider leechers (any person whom is there just to absorb exp), if not, additional damage like Roche or dim/dimini shield user.
Alternative 2: If you do not have a relatively hard hitting Shien/Schwartz, you can contact a person whom has one if you have a SSR Meifan of your own that has a reasonable mp pool to last roughly 6 turns of 40mp use.
Because mp is tight between Shien, Freesia and Mikoto.
Shien: MP ring + attack bracelet/crit jewel
Roche/Leecher: MP ring + any
Mikoto: MP ring + Boots (Winged Boots from completing Baldor trade mission 3)
Elio: Boots (needed to outspeed Shien) + MP ring
Freesia: MP ring
Because the bosses have three distinct attacking patterns, I have separated them for you.
Tuesday (Fire) / Thursday (Wood)
The Method (Fire and Wood Only)
When I refer 240 or 135, it refer to their skill based on mp cost. Shien Daikatana (240), Mikoto Soul of Truth (180)
-Get to boss wave, does not matter for prep work. You can if you want, stall and have Mikoto cast Swift Heart twice so you can silence the boss first on turn 1 and avoid the attack down debuff.
uses his silence, if you miss here, failed run. Actually if you miss at any point it might be gg.
-Then use these skills until the large attack turn (physical). Shien
(Fighting Spirit - 240 - 240), Roche
(Spam Dim shield), Mikoto
(Spam 180 or space it out 180-defend-180), Elio (Spam Boost Brave on Shien
) and Freesia
(Spam MP heal. Priority order: Freesia-Mikoto-Shien
can use Fighting Spirit if he is out of mp). Assist Meifan
spams 40 Aggro skill to ensure she is the target of the physical attack.
-The turn with large attack single physical comes and does 6k dmg to Meifan
(and possibly dies).
-The next physical does 300dmg (wood) on Shien
-Repeat rotation except its game over the next time the large physical attack comes.
Reference table from JP wiki (USE THIS!! Monitor your turns) Crimson is exactly the same attack pattern! Just fire element.
(Meifan). The DMM X-overd community
for the strategy discussions.
Proof Page (for those that doubt)
and no crystal usage
Light (Sunday) / Water (Wednesday)
The Method (Fire and Wood Only)
Like the above, you need to prepare well. The major difference in comparison to Fire and Wood is the boss attacking pattern.
Reference table from JP wiki (USE THIS!! Monitor your turns) Water is exactly the same attack pattern! Just water element.
At first you notice that the boss will attack immediately on the first turn and this is the major difference. To get through this, you need a SR Mikoto at 70/70, due to speed bonus, equipped with boots (winged boots) and a mp ring. He still does not have enough speed to out speed the boss, but with Swift Heart, he can.
-When entering the dungeon, the first three waves are occupied by fodder mobs. Stall for one turn and have Mikoto cast Swift Heart, you may choose to have two people attack the two mobs if you can guage your damage well, or just have Meifan pull aggro. Do not risk a overkill chain!
-On the second turn, again have Mikoto cast Swift heart but this time, plan a overkill chain to meet the boss.
-Enter the boss, Have Mikoto cast his 180mp skill and if it lands, you are set. The rest is pretty much the same as Fire and Wood strategy except the flag for meifan to use her 240 skill to reduce damage taken by -50% is when the boss heals himself for 2500hp, thats the flag to use that skill.
T1= Turn 1
T1= Single Light Hit
T2= Fire AoE
T3= Single Light Hit
Repeat T1,T2,T3 cycle one time
T8= Lethal Single Hit
T9= Lethal AoE Hit
Meifan Solo strategy:
If you cannot use eggs, use a relatively high char level SSR Meifan 0/6 minimum. Basically just alternate between [Wild Hit Guard] and [Chakra Recover]. On T7 use [Wild Hit Guard] and then for T8 + T9 use [Chakra Recover]
Basically apply blindness (Mikoto) and burst it down before T2/T5 and T8/9 before you get AoEd.
When we finally get multi-hit single target nukers with pile storage, Summer Ferris SSR is one, just use first turn Pile Storage then nuke with 240 to almost one-shot it.
This boss is the easiest and ideal to use eggs, especially when you have assist friends that can carry.
Example Team: Mikoto, Nonno, Attacker, Leecher, Leecher, Assist Attacker
T1= Status single target
T2= Single target nuke
T3= Banish to the shadow realm
T4= I did not get this far.
Basically spam [Take That ♪]. If you do not have that skill, find someone with an assist that does. Kupika must also have boots on, mp ring helps. MP healer is a requirement because of this slow chipping progress. Magic can also damage this boss without waking it up. Physical hits will wake up sleeping enemies. As long as the enemy is asleep, the next hit is guaranteed
to hit. If you always wake the enemy, you are playing with RNG. For maximum ez mode, just set everyone except Kupika + MP healer to use cheap self buffs or self-mp heal.
He is slower but accessible to free players. Spam his 240 instead. Because he is slower, you either need a Healer/Tank to cover this weakness up. Tank will receive the status attack. A Healer that can remove paralysis on Bruno regardless if it hits him or not. Once the enemy is asleep, pretty much guaranteed to kill if hes the only attacker with the aid of a MP healer.
Just throw everything you got at it and play with RNG.
Example Team: Kupika, Freesia, Nonno, leecher, leecher Assist Kupika/Freesia/Nonno (increase your leecher count)
T1: AoE Silence
T2: Single Magic Hit
T3: Single Physical Hit
T4: Decrease Attack Power AoE
T5: Lethal AoE Physical
T6: AoE Silence
T7: Lethal AoE Magical
Use SR Mikoto /w boots for this one. T1 use 180, T2 use 135. Alternate from there. If you miss first turn, you might be screwed. May need Freesia.
Just use a op Xmas April or Xmas Marina to banish this boss to the shadow realm.
Mikoto, Freesia, Nonno, attacker, debuffer/attacker. Assist Attacker.
T1= Self attack buff
T2= Triple hit single with blindness
T3= Seven hit single with blindness
T4= Five hit single with blindness
T5= Lethal AoE that banishes you to the shadow realm
DPS Race + Use a tank: Basically use a tank to aggro pull and use self-defence buffs to last until turn 5. Just DPS by T5 and you should be good.
Example team: Nonno, Jennifer/Aria, Dimini Wall user, attacker/leecher, attacker/leecher Assist whale attacker that can nuke it to oblivion.
Silver foreign coin= x3 per exotic weapon roll for a chance at ancient gold coin
Ancient gold coin= needed to exchange for Gold coin, need 10 to exchange for 1 gold coin.
Gold coin= Need 3 to do one roll of exotic gacha
So 30 total ancient gold coins for the free player. its a system that allowed whales to put their maxed SSR girls to use with superior trade power whilst at least giving free players a chance at this gacha.
What you should be looking for whilst trading
I would say stockpile at least 50 crimson orbs, maybe 100. 50 man drake salads and 50 ice dragon egg saute.
Crimson orb route=
Erestia 1 > Grandstar 2. You also get decent number of Ceres
Man Drake Salad route=
Baldor 1 > Erestia 3
Baldor 2 > Baldor 4
Stockpile these until we get the character Ebragish whose SSR job allows f2p players to easily break 120k trading power so you can do these missions that require crimson orb, mandrake salad, ice dragon for a high chance at ancient coin. Eventually you will memorize the order so it isnt too bad.
Future Stuff [In order of appearance]
All 6th missions drop male chars.
All 7th missions require a female-only team so until you get International Sports Carnival (ISC) SSR Mian, you cannot really do this unless youve been blessed with ssr rng. These missions mainly reward ancient coins and gold coins.
Grandstar 2 > Baldor 3. Grandstar 2 gives you the R Ceres book you need to do Baldor 3 for winged boots. This trade may give shiedle SSR.
Baldor 5 [Ice dragon route] drops the SSR gun necessary for this trade.
Erestia 5. Exchange the HP accessory u get from cerberus to do this and stockpile the SSR Ceres u get from Erestia 5. This trade may give Elio SSR
You get momo special from doing Grand Star 5 [crimson orb route]
Erestia 5 [mandrake salad route] may drop the SR Ceres you need to do this trade. This trade may give Doban SSR.
Erestia 5 [mandrake salad route] may drop the SSR sword you need to do this trade.
Tbh dont go out of your way to spend crystal for these units. Trade is supposed to be passive.
Ebragish is the free male trader, his ssr job boosts the trade power of the team.
SSR Marina base is a raw trade unit with around 40k trade power
SSR ISC Mian boosts the trade power of water element units.
SSR Exotic Lily has nice trade power + water + reduces trade time by like 10%
SSR Lune is nice
SSR Exotic cattleya has nice trade power
SSR Kupika is nice if ur not using her
SSR Maple is decent
For more details, scroll all the way to the bottom for a full list of prominent trade units
in dmm wiki.
Trade power increases with the more evolution you have for that job, the list displays their maximum individual trade score before trade abilities kick in.
An example team setup
Eventually you have to train units so be prepared to substitute a few times, perhaps use said time to do low missions that dont require much trade power.
Extras and Trivia
-Roche 135 and 240 skills appear as 3% instead of 30%. I am not sure if this was intentional or a typo.
-When I look at Shien, this plays in my head. (Hence my personal edit on the title image, them glowing eyes)
-When I look at Schwartz, One Winged Angel plays. Must be that album image pose + katana. Schwartz also dislikes romance and prefers meeting military texts. I am sure he would love to talk strategy with men in the public baths LOL.
-When looking at names. Someone correct me on this but Freesia made more sense as a name compared to Frezia because it is the name of a flower. Also Shien, considering his theme it might be Xien, idk asian names. Ferris looks like Phyllis to me.
-The two other girls in the title image are Nonno and Sephira.
