FANDOM


Abilities, or skills, are power-ups that can be obtained at the start the dungeon (Glory) and after every hero level up players are given a choice between three abilities. Additionally, Angels and, after Boss fights, a Lucky Wheel or The Devil will appear, giving the player a chance to obtain more abilities. The Devil offers an ability in exchange for some of the character's maximum health. Some abilities are unique to The Devil, such as passing through walls, walking on water, or an extra life.

These abilities strengthen the player's character in various ways through the adventure, allowing players to better deal with the increasing difficulty as they progress through the stages and reset upon the end of the adventure. At any point, the list of abilities possessed by the character is accessible by pausing the game.

Tier List jaja Edit

This is an basic Tier List (patch 1.2.7) to show the average power of abilities at a glance. It does not take account of enemies or weapons and is based on u/Minkemink guides. Please note Front Arrow is not recommended with Staff (not updated in image). For more Tier Lists, please check the Tier List Category.

Elemental Abilities Edit

  • Lightning - When an enemy is hit, electricity bolts strike all enemies that are nearby for 25% of your equipment damage. (affected by modifier e.g. Attack boosts, Front arrow).
  • Freeze - Enemy freezes for up to 2 sec. Hitting the enemy again unfreezes them (e.g. Multishot) Monsters can be frozen again after ~2s. Some bosses are immune to it. Realistically this just a minor interrupt but can de-sync double bosses (bad).
  • Poison - When an enemy is poisoned they starts losing HP slowly. The effect lasts until the enemy dies. Each tick deals 30% of equipment damage and occurs every second. Does not stack.
  • Fire - After an enemy is hit, it starts burning and losing HP fast. The effect lasts 2 seconds. Each tick deals 15% of base damage and occurs every 0.25 seconds (totalling 7 ticks). The effect is reset every time the enemy is hit.

Elemental don't cancel each other (e.g. Fire and Ice)
