Are you starting to play Unison League the latest hit mobile RPG? In this beginner’s guide, we will go over everything that you need to know to advance smoothly as a beginner in the game.
Please note that intermediate and advanced players will find this beginner’s walkthrough lacking. We will not go into details about how to gear up your characters and specific class skill and ability selections. This guide will serve more or less as a beginner’s FAQ and warning page to some of the pitful that new players will fall into.
Class Selection in Unison League
First of all, you can more or less pick any starting class in the game. As it is fairly easy to change them later on. You can change your class at anytime in Unison League via the “Class” tab from the menu. The only differences between different starting class early on is that you get the specific starter class weapon as well as 1 class skill during tutorial session.
Below is a quick overview of the classes in Unison League to guide you further in Unison League.
Lancers: Physical DPS
Soldiers: Tanks with defensive buffs.
Archer: Strongest DPS
Mage: AoE DPS
Cleric: Healer and Debuff Removal
To Upgrade your class in the class tree, you will need to unlock every skills on the growth ring using Proficiency points. You gain Proficiency points while playing through the main and material quests. Different classes have different skills that relate directly to their main purpose in the game.
It should be noted however that since it takes massive grinding to max all classes in Unison League, in the beginning you should take 1 class to focus on, and maybe 2 if you like to switch classes around. Your eventual goal however is to max all the classes to get all the shared attributes.
Some Notes on Learning Abilities (Skills) and Traits (Passive)
The Unison League class skills can be categorized into a few major areas: Abilities, Class Traits, and Shared Traits. You can learn these abilities and traits under the “Class” tab from the menu.
The abilities can be equipped onto any classes once its learned. Class Traits are passives that are only available when you are using that specific class. And finally shared traits are permanent stats boost that apply to your character permanently once learned from the skill tree.
The shared traits are located at the bottom path of the skill growth ring.
Lancer: ATK Boost
Soldier: DEF Boost
Archer: MDEF Boost
Mage: MATK Boost
Cleric: Debuff Resistance
Understanding Gear Equipment and Costs Allocation or Spread
The tutorial teaches you some basic concepts and ideas about equipping gears and utilizing cost spreads.
All your gears have “costs” for which is required to equip them. The maximum total of the equipped gears cost cannot exceed your allocated cost. You gain more gear “cost” automatically as you level up. You also gain some “unallocated” cost for you to move them into categories that you want.
There are also “cost” sub-quests which reward you with additional gear cost after you complete them.
Never use “AUTO” to allocate your cost, as the function more or less split them evenly across the different gear slots. As a quick and general rule of thumb, Weapon and Pet slot costs play a more important role than your other slots. At the time of writing this Unison League beginner’s guide, the cost allocation assignment is permanent.
As a beginner to the game, we recommend you to “save” your cost until you get SR or higher gears that actually require higher cost to equip. And if you really want to start assigning your cost, keep the spread more or less as followed:
Weapon – Armor – Helmet – Monster Pet
2 – 1 – 1 – 2
However, again you should save and hold on to your gear cost unless you absolutely need to spend them.
You gain or unlock additional gear equipment slots as you level up in the game.
Upgrading Your Gears in Unison League
Gears play a major role in Unison League, thus we are working on a separate guide to help you understand all the specific ways to upgrade and make yours Unison League gears stronger. The details about gear upgrade is outside the scope of this beginner’s guide.
In the detailed Unison League gear Reforge and Augment guide, we will go over tips on augment, reforge, and more.
Best Ways to Use Your Unison League Gems
There are simply two best ways to spend your game early on in the game.
Inventory and Item Locker Space: With the game having so many gears, augmentation material, and reforge material, you will run out of those precious item spaces sooner than later. One of the best way to spend your gem is to invest and fully expand both your inventory and locker spaces early on in Unison League.
Beginner’s Spawn and Multi-Gem draw. Beginner’s 30 gem spawn is one of the best in game as you will get a guaranteed SSR gear. And after that you should do a 30x gem draw always to get a guaranteed chance of pulling SR or higher item.
Although gems cost quite a bit of money obtain, you do have some easy and free ways to get gems. These gem earning tasks are completing achievements, “master” story quests, attend guild battles, collect from daily bonuses, and friend invites.
There are always special events from time to time given by the developer to award you with additional gems.
Farming for Proficiency Points and Leveling EXP
In Unison League, there is no best way to farm for proficiency or EXP. Your best bet is to simply push through the main quest as much as you can. In general, higher ranked main quests give you more Proficiency points and EXP. However, there are two tricks that you should know to improve your EXP or proficiency grinding process a little better.
In terms of EXP farming, the best method is to check the “recommended” or friends tabs. You want to jump into other people’s quest as much as you can. The reason is that the majority of experience points come from the final boss kill. But since you effectively use a little less AP when you enter quests late, you end up with higher amount of EXP per AP used.
Proficiency points is directly linked to how many actions that you actually do during battle, for example if you AFK through the entire quest and let your allies (CPU or real players) do all the work, you will end up with much less Proficiency points.
Different quests appear to have caps on the minimum and maximum proficiency range that you can gain. It means that even if you AFK through the entire battle, you will still end up with some minor amount of proficiency points.
This is partially why you gain much less proficiency points when you are teamed with strong CPU or players that wipe out all the mobs in 1~2 shots. You end up dealing much less damage or contribute to the battle yourself.
Event vs Story Quests
In general, you should push as far as you can with story quests as allowed by your gears. Higher ranked events have much higher drop rates for the rare gears that you will need. It is a much better use of AP to use them on the story instead of special events.
Basic Note on Unison Skill Damage
The unison skill damage is mainly determined by the skill level of your monster. When you augment your monsters with Skill or EXP limimin’s, you have a chance to level up your monster’s skill. Higher skills have less percentage chance to level up.
We will be working for a detailed guide how how exactly Unison skills and summons actually work in a more detailed unison skill guide at a later time.
