Food Fantasy Complete Guide & All Recipes

Food Fantasy Guide

Food Fantasy has released globally for iOS and Android, a surprisingly complex and well-produced RPG/Restaurant Simulator. Here’s how to get started and deal with each of the game’s features (which can be pretty complex!).

You can stop by my Discord server to chat about Food Fantasy. We have a guild (mostly) just for members of my Discord! As always feel free to ask questions, share info, or just chat about Food Fantasy in the Comments below. Finally, you can also support my guides on Patreon!

Events

Current time-limited events for Food Fantasy are announced when you open the game, and can be confirmed from the Events tab on the main menu (simple enough).

Important note about events: If an event seems extremely unfair, let the devs know on facebook. They have corrected events in the past (in fairly impressive time) when fans are vocal about their concerns. The game is very whale-focused, but they do respond to non-whales and such, but they have to know something’s wrong to fix it.

Sweet Tofu Events

Like Milt, Sweet Tofu gets a whooping 3 events at once.

Circus Tour

From 2018-10-16 to 2018-10-22

A series of daily quests to get rewards. Seems to be just like Tangyuan’s skin event, should be easy. The biggest reward for 4 days completion is a set of 60 Salty Tofu dolls for the Circus event rather than a skin. It’s half the dolls you need for the skin, though.

Since the english is pretty bad, “Replenish” means to fight in the Replenish option under Trials 3 times, clear Rubes means to tap the Friend’s List icon in Restaurant and sweep 5 Rubes from friends restaurants (this is free; do not waste tips on the gloves), and “Arbitrary experience potions” means to use 5 xp potions in the Souls menu on any soul.

These dailies are very easy and very worth completing, so make sure you do them.

Circus Conclusion

From 2018-10-16 to 2018-10-22

Earn Salty Tofu Dolls in event exclusive quests, deliveries and store purchases to exchange for in game items. The biggest reward is the Circus Sweets skin for Sweet Tofu.

Circus Sweets costs 120 Salty Tofu dolls, and you get 60 for completing 4 of the daily mission sets from the above event. That leaves 60 to be earned from deliveries. It’s slightly intensive but should be very possible if all 3 food trucks are dispatched at every interval you can handle.

If you run out of stamina, trading 3 Salty Dolls for the stamina in the store to fill more orders is a net gain. You might want to hold off on Hard Mode or Airships to preserve stamina if you really want the skin and you’re having trouble filling orders.

Remember that Skewer, if you have her at 3 stars, helps reduce delivery time and is perfect for events like this (she must be set to supervisor, however).

Buying dolls with Crystals is pretty expensive and not recommended; the skin costs 900 crystals, including the 60 from the above event, which is pretty pricey. The requirements were lowered anyway so it shouldn’t be too impossible.

Long Time No See

2018-10-15

SR Sweet Tofu permanently added to the normal card pool (at a lower than average rate).

15 Days Of Sign In 

Time: From creating your account until 18 days after

Get Brownie, a special Brownie Skin, and some other goodies by logging in daily 15 times in the first 18 days.

New Player Benefits (Foie Gras)

Time: From creating your account until 20 days later. Complete this quick or you’ll lose it!

For the first 20 days after you start playing, you’ll unlock daily challenges for smaller rewards, and if all 9 days worth of challenges are completed, you’ll get Foie Gras, an UR Food Soul. There’s a “benefits” button on the main menu you can track this in.

Don’t expect to finish each ‘day’ of challenges in one day though; they unlock day by day but don’t have to be completed until the 20 days are up. The challenges can be pretty tough when first unlocked, so just focus on steady progress through the game to make sure you can achieve them.

The challenges are a pretty good way to learn the game too, so while you can’t unlock everything the day you unlock it, keep them in mind and try to complete them as you can, both to learn the game and to earn your UR!

Expired Food Fantasy Events

None of these events are currently active, and may not be active again. They’re left here for historical reference.

Food Fantasy Quick Tips

General
  • The tutorial is very long, but Food Fantasy is surprisingly complicated. It’s okay to ignore the story should you choose, but you’ll get going faster if you pay attention to the UI walkthrough.
  • Don’t forget to tap the ? icon next to “main story mission”; there are sidequests to take on for extra rewards that aren’t listed elsewhere. Very easy to miss.
  • Food Fantasy crashes quite a lot at the moment, so it’s a good idea to have a cloud save just in case
    • Tap the player icon in the top left of the main menu, then tap Account to link either a Facebook or Google Play/Gamecenter account to save your game in the cloud
      • Use the “switch” button on the left of this menu to download an existing save, for example when loading Food Fantasy on a new phone
      • Once saves are set up, they’re automatic and more or instant
  • You can get extra Soul Embers (gachapon points) by sharing the results of a spin or other things. You only get one share reward every few (4?) days You actually need Facebook/Whatsapp/Line installed on your phone to attempt to get them, as an irritated TapTap found out 
  • It’s easy to forget what all Shards/Materials/etc you have, tap the Vault icon at the main menu to see. With 15 shards you can Ascend a character (this isn’t done automatically, as it is in some gacha games)
  • Random fact, you regenerate about 486 stamina a day, enough for 162 sweeps, about 40 to 54 dishes
Restaurant
  • Make sure you frequently stop into the Restaurant to Prep meals, you won’t get much idle money/tips/etc without lots of food ready. 
  • Eventually staff run out of “freshness” and must be removed from active duty until it’s recovered
    • Ice Arena restores freshness (Character Level 16), as does “feeding” the Food Soul when they’re active in the RrestaurantIce Arena sounds like the best way to restore freshness at the moment
  • Many restaurant features are locked behind Character Level (such as Decorate). You won’t be able to fully experience Food Fantasy if you don’t explore the Combat/Missions as well to level up and get ingredients and so forth
  • Make sure to do the Tasks in the bottom row of buttons; you get small loot boxes which can have character “shards”, with enough shards you can summon a character you don’t have (or improve one you do have)
  • Food Souls are specialized for Combat or Restaurant staffing. If skills are listed (and the Freshness meter goes over 100) when selecting them in the staff menu, a Soul is designed for Restaurant use
  • Dine and Dash customers (evil spirit over their heads as they stand on the table) will block a table until you defeat them in combat. If you see one, clear them out quickly.
Combat
  • After 3-star clearing a combat mission in Food Fantasy, you can “sweep” a level to instantly get it’s rewards (but no Food Soul experience)
    • Sweeps are a great way to quickly use up Stamina that would otherwise go to waste if you don’t have much time to play
    • Sweeps are also useful when your Character Level is capping your Food Soul level, so you can get player XP quickly
  • You don’t get experience for losing, so grind on a lower level stage first
  • Food Souls can’t level up higher than your Character Level (visible on the top right of the main menu)
    • If all your food souls are maxed out and you can’t progress, try Sweeping to get Character Level experience so you can resume leveling up Souls
  • Note that some Food Souls are designed for battle (often these have active skills), and some are designed for Restaurant staffing. You’ll find restaurant staff much less effective in combat
  • The ingame “reviews” for levels often note which levels are the best for grinding each material, though I’ve listed the ones I’ve found in the Ingredients section below
I can’t get Food Fantasy in the app store!

Some users can’t find Food Fantasy in the play store, not entirely sure why. You can try downloading it with QooApp on Android if you don’t have it. On iOS, if it’s not in the store you’re pretty doomed.

Food Fantasy Recipes List

Unlocking Regional Recipes

In Food Fantasy there’s 3 regions, each with its own recipes. At first you’ll only be able to make the recipes from your home region (selected during the tutorial). You can confirm which region you’re from in the Research page under Refine.

Once you’ve completed all recipes in your region (Around level 57) you can make dishes from the other regions. Developing recipes outside your region will always fail before this point.

Recipes always only require one item of each type to develop. See Ingredients below for where to find each ingredient the fastest.

You might see recipes shared in chat or reviews ingame; these are less helpful than you’d hope, since they might be for a region you can’t access yet.

    Restaurant Mode

    Prep

    The Prep button is how you make food. It’s generally good to make large batches of the highest quality food you have, but if you’re out of food and customers are waiting, you might make just a few dishes at once to quickly place food before they leave.

    Dine and Dash

    Dine and Dash customers stand on the table after eating and have a black “devil” icon over their head. Tap them to get the option to fight them, which you must do to clear the table for later use.  You get minor rewards for this.

    You can, though I have no idea why you would, ask for help for this, but they’ve been extremely weak in my experience.

    Skills

    For maximum Skill Seasoning efficiency, level your Restaurant (M) Food Souls to level 29 to get their skills to the highest possible level that doesn’t cost Intermediate Seasoning which is much rarer.

    Rube’s Mischief

    These cute little ghosts reduce the rate of visiting customers by 10% for one, 15% for two, and 20% for three. They can be chased away with Rainbow Gloves (a waste), or you can request Help.

    After Help is requested, an icon of a Rube will appear in the friends list (the tab on the extreme right of the Restaurant menu). Friends can then visit your restaurant and clear the Rubes for you, and get tip coins for their effort. Rubes return daily, so clear your friends and request help as they reappear.

    Staff Ignoring Customers

    Due to a bug Waitstaff sometimes appear to ignore customers and won’t serve them after you’ve visited friends’ restaurants, etc. If this happens, leave the restaurant menu and come back in and all will be well again.

    Food Souls & Character List

    Note that “summon codes” are not real, the gachapon odds are listed ingame and are correct. Tapping the buttons in the summoning menu is “just for fun” and does not affect who you get in any way.

    Random info I wanted to include, when a Food Soul’s skill deals a percent of their attack plus an absolute amount of damage, the formula per skill level is as following:

    Skill Level 1/11/21
    Linked AOE: 60% 75% 90% 
    Energy AOE:  40% 50% 60%
    Single Target: 100% 120% 140%

    Many characters not actually in the Gachapon even if otherwise, but for certainty I’ve noted where there’s a special method to obtain a character.

    Rarity and Stars

    Characters are given standard Gachapon game rarity tiers: Ultra Rare (UR), Super Rare (SR), Rare (R), and Mundane (M). Mundane units are actually about as rare in Gacha as Ultra Rares, but a “free” copy of each is also given via the story (for most? or possibly all of them).

    Rarer characters have lower appearance in the Gachapon and also better stats.

    However by getting shards from duplicates or rewards from various activities, you can add “stars” to each character, up to 5 stars each. An UR will almost always beat an R, especially of the same type, but a 3 star R vs a no star UR is possibly a different story.

    When team building it’s important to consider team synergy, rarity, and stars. A team of 5 UR Strength-type units might sound great on paper, but a more balanced team with more Support and Defense is likely to surpass it.

    Fondness & Feeding

    Normal food: 7 Fondness
    Favorite Food: 21
    Exquisite Food: 21
    Exquisite Favorite Food: 70 Fondness

    Teams

    Teams are how you put together your characters for combat, orders, and Exploration. There’s also separate teams for defense/attack in the Showdown, and Daily Trials which aren’t listed with your teams.

    The first three Team slots are unlocked by character level. The last three can be unlocked by Diamonds, for 100, 200, and presumably 300 diamonds.

    Teams will often need to be changed around during the story levels, as some levels require brute strength (Treasure Chests), while some require heavy defense and healing to avoid KOs.

    Obtain Methods

    Unlike most Gachapon games, Food Fantasy has many different ways to get Food Souls; several characters aren’t actually in the summoning pool at all and can only be obtained with ingame achievements/grinding.

    Summon

    Most, but not all Food Souls can be obtained in Summon tab, the standard gachapon in the game. Odds are listed in game (tap the question mark icon). No, the buttons in the summon do not affect the odds, they are purely cosmetic (confirmed by the developers).

    R/SR/UR: Most souls (see the ingame odds for a list)

    Limited Summon

    Some events have special gachapon pools with adjusted rates, often with an exclusive character. Limited Summons for exclusive characters usually have a “Mercy” mechanic on the banner UR unit; this unit is guaranteed to be given somewhere between 6000-8000 soul embers worth of pulls.

    SRs/non mainline Food Souls do not have the mercy mechanic. This is why it may seem like the SR with the higher rate is pulled less frequently than the UR, because the SR does not have a bonus rate.

    Tip Shop

    UR: B-52
    SR: Sushi
    R: Ume, Omurice, Jiuniang
    M: All normal M Souls, Strawberry Daifuku (unreleased)

    Air Ship

    The airship brings 2-4 R and SR shards each time it’s send off, from a limited pool. At level intervals the Air Ship gets harder to send off but brings back more shards, up to at least 4 SR shards at level 66.

    The main event here is Cloud Tea, an UR support that’s exclusive to Air Ship.

    R: Almost everyone but Cola and Cold Rice Shrimp
    SR: Most people in the Shard Fusion pool. Notably Sweet Tofu, Wonton, Sanma, Tangyuan, Yoghurt
    UR: Cloud Tea

    Hard Mode

    Hard Mode is the easiest ways to get shards for specific food souls, though the pool is rather limited. Each 3 sweep of a 3 * completed Hard Mode level should net you 2 shards for the represented character. 

    Hard Mode is one of the best ways to spend Stamina and you can get some very powerful food souls early on this way, so always keep up on it. It’s also a great way to get extra shards for Shard Fusion.

    R: Tom Yum, Milk, Crepe, Dorayaki
    SR: Black Tea, Yuxiang, Salad, Mooncake

    Shard Fusion

    Spreadsheet

    Shard Fusion allows you to take 5 (Rank Up) or 3 (Same Rank) shards of one rank and fuse them for another, totally random, shard. The shard pool is limited, and furthermore the Rank Up and Same Rank pools are different as well.

    There’s no way to influence which shards you get, so you simply need a very large sum of shards to fuse. Min-maxers prefer to fuse every shard for everyone they don’t use (occasionally shooting themselves in the foot), and others prefer to aim to 5 star every character before wasting any shards in fusion.

    Be reasonable and find a balance between the two that works for you; certain characters aren’t good and have very high drop rates (Salad), so they’re pretty safe to fuse even if the base soul isn’t ascended. Harder to find shards of still poorer characters are more of a judgement call, I tend to play it safe and ascend those myself.

    Fusion list is WIP

    “Tier List”

    So, I hate tier lists and this isn’t exactly a tier list, but you can think of it as one if you like.

    As a gachapon game, tier lists are largely irrelevant except to extreme whales who can actually have 3+ stars on UR characters, limited characters, whale Airships to get Cloud Tea early etc. Instead, I’ve noted which Food Souls are particularly suited to certain ingame tasks so you can focus on these and not miss a good thing, thinking they’re just another FS.

    Anyone omitted from this list is likely not particularly relevant, but may still be perfectly fine depending on your situation; for instance a 4 star Escargot, if you somehow magically got one, would beat a 0 star gingerbread or 5 star Tomyum. But that’s almost certainly not going to happen for a great majority of players in a timespan where he would be relevant.

    And of course the game is a changing one, so it’s highly possible characters may rotate in/out of this list in the future. Power Creep is definitely a thing.

    General Notes

    Whos’ best is incredibly situational depending on what you’re doing, who you have, what level you are, and how many stars your characters have. As a general rule, someone with two to three stars from a lower rarity beats a character from a higher tier with 0 stars. So think of it like a 0 star UR Support as being beaten by a 2 star SR Support, or a 5 star R support.

    You may well have a use for people not on this list; I for example ran with Chocolate and Brownie up to level 40 since they were my earliest 2 units. If you get an UR or 2 star SR before you have many other URs or higher level SRs, odds are they may have some use on your team even if they’re not in a “tier”. 

    But after level 60 or so and the amount of pulls that the average F2P player will be able to have (plus fusion, hard mode grins events, so on), the following souls tend to be the most relevant.

    UR Souls

    Most UR souls are actually basically worthless for the vast majority of players in the long term. While early on they are very good and you should be glad to have them, the ascension/stars mechanic means that URs will flag behind lower tier, higher ascended Food Souls due to the level cap/base stat multiplier.

    Beyond level 60, URs with no stars will rapidly be outpaced by SR cards with stars. Limited event URs are all but impossible to get to 2 star and beyond (more or less necessary for them to be relevant) without spending hundreds/thousands of dollars, so you should more or less ignore them.

    Though again, everything is situational and if you pull an UR before level 60 it’s highly likely they’ll be quite good for quite a while. Remember that roughly 2 stars on a lower tier makes up for the difference in tier, so once you have multiple 2 or 3 star SRs, it might be time to replace your URs unless they have stars.

    URs You Can Actually Use

    There’s 3 main URs that basically anyone can use due to extremely common Shard drops, so if you get one of these, they’re very likely to stay relevant.

    B-52

    Obtain: Summon, Showdown Shop, Tip Shop
    Class: Magic, Crowd Control

    Quite possibly the only food soul F2P players will ever 5 star, B-52 is given a healthy supply of shards through the tip shop and medal shop, so if you pull him early on you’re in a really good spot, even if he’s one of the “worst” URs comparing all of them at 5 stars.

    B-52 deals solid damage to the whole enemy party, has a 50% stun on his energy/linked skill, and increases the damage they take with his basic skill. He’s an invaluable Crowd Control and earns his place in almost any Catacomb/Showdown/Story mode fight. Single target damage dealers like Sanma will outclass him in Guild/Disaster boss however.

    Though he links with Brownie, this is only relevant if you pull him early on and your 2 star brownie from the 15 Days of Sign In event is one of your better units still.

    Foie Gras

    Obtain: “Benefits” event, Summon, Shard fusion (Same Rank or Rank Up)
    Class: Magic, Crowd Control

    Like B-52 and Peking Duck, Foie is made for Showdown, easy to ascend, and a solid CC all around.  Make sure to get her in the Benefits event, and after that her shards are very common in Shard Fusion. She’ll probably be your highest star UR after B-52, if you get him early.

    She’s a very random chance based character, but she’s the only one who can spam a full team confusion debuff against the whole enemy party with her basic skill. Confusion is particularly great in Arena, since it can help a stronger team tear each other apart, and Peking Duck is particularly nice to confuse due to his high attack speed, guaranteeing he’ll attack once or more in the duration.

    Foie is also highly relevant to later Catacombs and Story missions as she can turn the overpowered DPS of said enemies back on each other. She pairs with Escargot, but he’s not necessary unless he happens to be your best defense unit anyway. Foie’s basic is the main event anyway.

    Peking Duck

    Obtain: Summon, Shard Fusion (Same Rank or Rank Up)
    Class: Magic, Crowd Control

    The more or less undisputed king of Showdown as it currently is and Crowd Control in general, Peking Duck has amazing attack speed, infuriating full-team silence, and, well that’s all he really needs.

    If you get him he’ll practically win all your Showdown matches and he’s still a great help in Catacombs as well, and his damage isn’t bad either. His shards are extremely common in Shard Fusion so if you pull him you’re set for life.

    He pairs well with Yuxiang for debuff spam. Note a particularly high level Resolute Fallen Angel (+10 or higher) can be better for him than a Brave, like Foie.

    URs You Might Use

    These are URs that may or may not be useful depending on your luck. With at least one star all of these are pretty great, but without shards they’ll probably be overtaken for most non-whales. 

    Bamboo Rice

    Obtain: Summon, Fusion (Same Rank), Team Up (insanely rare drop in Hard team ups)
    Class: Strength, Single Target DPS

    With a defense-cutting debuff, Bamboo Rice can add a lot of damage in Guild/World Boss, or in most situations really. He’s a great, simple attacker with great skills that wins out in single target DPS against almost anyone due to the defense cut.

    As with most people in this category, it’s just really hard to ascend him. His rate for fusion is low (and UR same rank only to boot), and his rate in Team Up is so low they may as well not include him; players go months without getting a single shard. 

    Crab Long Bao

    Obtain: Summon
    Class: Defense, all purpose attack/defense unit

    A strange but effective mix of Crowd Control/Defense, Crab is a better Steak that stuns enemies too, but his skills don’t focus on defense. However, his base defense is so high (especially with stars) that it’s not usually a big deal. A CLB with over 1000 defense can stand in the way of just about anything even without heals.

    Like most here, his downfall is the difficulty of getting shards; at 0 stars, a 4 or 5 star Steak can handily replace him.

    Gingerbread

    Obtain: Summon, Shard Fusion (Same Rank UR)
    Class: Defense

    The best pure-defense food soul in the game, if you can ascend her. Her skills are amazing especially her defense buff (just about the only percentage based buff in the game!).

    Like Crab Long Bao, her shards are very hard to come by and you’re likely to end up using Steak instead long term unless you can keep ascending her. 

    Pizza

    Obtain: Unreleased

    Pizza is an upcoming and extremely good Food Soul, though ascending him requires ranking well in a time limited event apparently. I’ve heard that to get him to 4 stars may cost between 3000 and 5000 gems. Not sure of his utility below 2 stars.

    Toso

    Obtain: Limited Summon
    Class: Strength, Single Target DPS/Team Buffer

    A limited UR, Toso is as hard to ascend as the characters in the “Whale Only” lists, but she’s actually so good that she might be useful for quite a while even at one star due to her energy skill helping your whole team, and a critical link for Laba Congee for World Boss.

    She’s the queen of World Boss with her buff clearing and Laba Congee link, and she’s not too shabby (though rather squishy) in Showdown and other contexts. Her energy boost skill is great and multipurpose; she should lead any team she’s in to help the other Food Souls cast their energy skills early and often.

    Whale Only URs

    You’re almost certainly not going to have a use for these characters, but if you’re insanely lucky or a whale and you get these to two stars or more, these can be amazing. But you’re probably not gonna.

    Boston Lobster

    Obtain: Shard Fusion (Rank Up), Gachapon
    Class: Strength, Single Target DPS

    If you’re going to reroll for anyone (off a limited banner), it should probably be Boston Lobstah and his dismal 0.05% pull rate. With several stars he’s among the best single target DPS in the game and invaluable in many formats. He’s got an OHKO finisher on his basic skill and crazy stats, but again, 0.05%.

    If you manage to pull him his shards are actually not insanely rare in shard fusion (SR->UR), but without that first lucky pull he’s unlikely to see much use.

    Double Scoop

    Obtain: Shard Fusion (Rank Up), Gachapon
    Class: Magic, DPS

    Basically the UR version of Black Tea with way better stats, Double Scoop is an amazing DPS at 3 stars or above for guild/disaster boss, but not a lot of use otherwise. But with 0.05% pull rate and multiple stars required due to being insanely squishy, these bros are more or less whale-only. If you’re rerolling, Lobster has more uses and the same ultra-rare rate.

    Cloud Tea

    Obtain: Air Ship
    Class: Support

    With a weak heal (though it adds energy), insanely long time to summon/ascend, Cloud Tea isn’t particularly viable and as of right now, only whales even have her (let alone ascended) on Global Server anyway.  Neat idea but not practical.

    Canele 

    Obtain: Guild Shop
    Class: Support

    Like Cloud Tea, she’s got a unique idea going for her (reviving Food Souls!), but it’s estimated to take approximately two years to get enough guild points to purchase her. 

    Limited Whale Only URs

    Batten down the hatches matey, only the whaley-est of whales whale in these waters!

    Milt

    Obtain: Limited Summon
    Class: Support

    Requires stars and Caviar to be truly good, meaning multiple stars for multiple limited pool URs are necessary. Thar she blows, maties; the white whale.

    Milt needs Caviar for her linked heal to truly out pace others’, and her basic while interesting primarily just gives energy to your tank. This will either help your tank survive or, if their energy skill deals damage like CLB, help do damage, and it’s rather situational unlike Toso’s full-party skill spam.

    Fun fact: Milt is fish semen. It’s a semen/eggs joke. Highest maturity game.

    Caviar

    Obtain: Limited Summon
    Class: Defense

    As above pairs with another event limited UR. Collection tier for anyone not looking to piss away a few thousand dollars on fake internet points. Unreleased too but probably soonish.

    Raindrop Cake

    Obtain: Limited Summon
    Class: Strength

    Beyond the undisputed worst UR in the game in all his glory.

    SR Souls

    For non-whales, SRs are really where it’s at. After a few months of play you should naturally pull/grind the great majority of these and even have quite a few stars on many of these. Since an SR with some stars beats an UR with none especially at level 60+, these will generally be your bread and butter after early game. 

    F2P Saviors

    These are your SRs that you’re guaranteed to get lots of shards for in the game, either through hard mode, medal shop or other means.

    Black Tea

    Obtain: Story, Daily Missions, Hard Mode

    Boring but effective, Black Tea will carry you through much of the story due to her easy to find shards and solid critical rate. Her skills don’t do anything fancy, but until you have several SR souls at 2* or higher, she’ll likely be the best you’ve got.

    She also pairs with Milk, significantly improving her healing skill. Since Milk is the best healer early on, you’re likely to be using Tom Yum, Milk, and Black Tea in almost every fight for a while.

    Hamburger

    OBtain: Summon, Purple Restaurant Chests, Showdown Shop

    Hamburger is not actually that good, but if pulled early he can be ascended before just about anyone else. When other SRs have as many stars as Hamburger it’s probably time to say goodbye however. 

    Mooncake

    Obtain: Hard Mode, Air Ship, Showdown

    Mooncake will likely be your second 5 star SR unit, she’s incredibly fast and has a nice conditional OHKO on her Energy skill. She’s otherwise slightly plain but most other food souls will have to put in a lot of work to top a 4 or 5 star Mooncake.

    She’s particularly great for Guild Boss due to Tangyuan linking with her; using the linked shield will totally negate Fireballs and makes surviving to the end easy.

    Yuxiang

    Obtain: Summon, Hard Mode, Air Ship

    Great in Showdown but only with Peking Duck. Otherwise, she’s a perfectly serviceable and easy to ascend SR, nice to fill in holes in your team if she’s all you’ve got when Silence is useful.

    Steak

    Obtain: Summon, Perfect Chest from Deliveries
    Class: Defense, Attack/Defense

    Savior for people tired of using Tom Yum, Steak is initially pretty bad as his skills focus on dealing damage rather than heal/protect himself. His trick is he’s easy to ascend due to Deliveries, and with high enough defense he’s very useful to add damage to the party which most other defenders in his class can’t do.

    When Steak is 4-5 stars (do your deliveries!) and over level 60 he’ll outclass most UR defenders unless they have a star or more.

    Steak is basically a much easier to ascend Crab Long Bao. Gingerbread and CLB will still outclass him with sufficient stars, which you likely won’t have.

    RNG Dependant SRs

    These SRs are some of the best characters in the game, though if you’re unlucky you might not see (or ascend) them for a while. With long enough play, even F2P players are likely to get most of these though.

    Sanma

    The best single-target damage dealing soul in the game, Sanma is an absolute beast. If there’s only one enemy, Sanma is almost always recommended to bring. Early on he’ll save you from Treasure Chests, and late game he’s critical for Disaster Boss and Guild Boss. Miso Soup also links with him, which is similarly critical in Guild and Disaster bosses. Bonito Rice also links with him nicely.

    He’s less relevant in Arena/Catacombs and some Story levels, since he has no Crowd Control capabilities.

    Tangyuan

    Obtain: Summon, Shard Fusion, Air Ship
    Class: Support

    The savior of Guild Boss, Tangyuan’s energy/linked skill completely blocks all damage for 3-4 seconds. This allows her, when linked with Mooncake (who is good already) to completely prevent incoming damage from Fireballs in Guild Boss.

    Like most other SR supports, she has trouble beating Milk in a healing fight otherwise, unless she’s got some stars on her and ideally Mooncake is in the party. Without Mooncake, her invincibility might not block major incoming attacks. Her shards are moderately abundant fortunately, so she’ll likely be one of your highest ascended SR healers.

    Laba Congee

    Obtain: Summon (Unreleased), Event
    Class: Support

    Along with Toso, Laba Congee is the queen of Disaster Boss, dispelling Aluna’s stun and attack debuff, greatly increasing your party’s damage. Her basic heal hits the whole party and clears all debuffs, and her energy skill, while it has a long windup, is quite strong in it’s healing as well.

    When linked with Toso Laba Congee’s energy skill becomes amazing, and should completely restore your whole party’s HP in Guild/World boss. She’s still worth bringing to Disaster Boss without Toso in most cases, since she removes the extreme (50%?) damage debuff that Aluna casts. The spell is never dispelled automatically, so Laba effectively doubles the rest of your party’s damage.

    Even outside Disaster boss, Laba can find some use especially with stars and/or if you use Toso in your party.

    Sweet Tofu

    Obtain: Summon (extra low rate), Shard Fusion, Air Ship
    Class: Support

    The best non-whale healer in the game, Sweet Tofu simply has the best healing skills, particularly his Basic which helps top off HP worn down from AOE hits.  He’s hard to summon, but once you have him shards are moderately common via Fusion. He’s the only SR healer that outclasses Milk even without stars.

    His link is unfortunately bad (Salty Tofu is…not good), so Laba Congee can actually out heal him if linked with Toso. Sweet Tofu doesn’t need a link however so if you want a no-brainer healer that can slot in any team and any situation, Sweet Tofu is the go-to.

    Bonito Rice

    Obtain: Limited Summon 
    Class: Defense

    Designed for Disaster Boss, Bonito Rice clears enemy’s buffs, but it takes a lot of defense for him to beat Tom Yum at holding back Aluna. It’s unlikely non-whales will find much utility for him in the long run.

    Even with his sweet Sanma link, he’s just too hard to get shards for unless you’re lucky. Outclassed by Tom early on, Steak later on, or by Caviar/CLB/Gingerbread with enough stars.

    Gyoza

    Obtain: Summon
    Class: Defense

    The best SR tank, but also extremely hard to get. It’s likely Steak or even Tom Yum will outclass him unless you pull him early and often. His invulnerability and self-heals are very legit if his stats aren’t too low.

    R Souls
    Miso Soup

    Easily the most out-of-left-field Food Soul, Miso Soup is an incredibly powerful, incredibly situational food soul. He can deal the best single-target DPS in the game with his basic skill.

    His link with Sanma is critical; by linking you can avoid casting his heal, which lets him deal so much more damage. In addition, he’s just always useful in situations where Sanma is also critical.

    Since his gimmick requires a pure attack Food Soul, he’s effectively worthless in any situation that would require he have HP/Def lines: Catacombs, Showdown, and much of Story Mode. The problem is in these cases he can often be OHKO with pure Attack, and if you don’t have pure Attack on him, his gimmick is rarely worthwhile, especially if Sanma is not in the party.

    Tom Yum

    An impressively good R defender that beats basically everyone in the SR tier before 3 or 4 stars. Due to being able to grind for his shards in Hard Mode stages, Tom will be your boy unless you get an UR defender very early on or your Steak or other SRs hit 3 or 4 stars.

    He self-heals which makes him invaluable in the Aluna Disaster Boss fight, and his low HP stat actually helps in that situation. He’s so good you should almost certainly bring Tom Yum for World Boss unless you know what you’re doing. An offensive Defense unit (steak, Crab Long Bao) can beat him with ~1000 defense though, since they’ll take so little damage.

    Milk

    If you were planning to use almost any healer in the game I have some bad news; due to the ease of getting her shards, her link with Black Tea, and her simple and effective skills, Milk is almost the only relevant healer in the game until you get Sweet Tofu (who can beat her even without stars) or Laba Congee (better linked/with some stars, or when debuffs are a thing).

    3 stars on a non-Sweet Tofu/Laba healer is about the only time you should consider them over Milk unfortunately, or 2 stars on an UR (non-whales are exceedingly unlikely to ever see a 2 star UR support).

    The Rest

    Anyone not listed here can pretty safely be considered “Collection Tier”. They’re not necessarily worthless unless you have a full roster as it is, but there’s not much worth saying about most of them for now.

    Gameplay

    Resets

    The Daily Reset is at midnight UTC

    Getting Soul Embers

    Like any Gachapon game, one of the most wanted currencies is whatever the Gacha uses. You can use Soul Embers to summon at 150 embers per summon. There appears to be no bonus to summoning 6 at a time vs one, unlike certain other Gacha games.

    Almost everything in the game gives soul embers to some degree, even completing normal stages can give one (three on hard stages). Completing Side Quests and Rewards is generally the best way to get them, as are any time-limited events that happen to be playing.

    Embers are the sort of thing you get more based on how long you play rather than how well, so don’t focus extremely much on grinding for them unless you have a reward to reach. You’ll get more from maintenance, ranking rewards, and events just by playing the game.

    Cooking Talents

    Cooking talents increase in price by a significant amount (20%?) each time you buy a level within their tree. It doesn’t matter which level of which skill is bought; if you buy 10 skills in the Damage tree, the cost will always be the same for the next upgrade you buy, no matter which it is.

    This means it’s very important to not spend points on underperforming skills; they permanently raise all other prices. However, the Damage and Support trees come with passive skills that require you to max all other skills in the tree first anyway, so it’s not as big a deal there since you will eventually, after many months, want them all max anyway.

    Damage

    Damage skills are the best early on, but eventually become near-useless late game. Since skill tree cost increases are separate, there’s no reason not to invest in these early on anyway, plus they have good passives (eventually, after several hundred thousand Cooking Power).

    Straight Cut & Blade Chop

    The best skill early on, Blade Chop deals a respectable absolute amount of damage and instantly defeats targets under 15% of their max HP. Ideal for Treasure Chests and boss stages.

    These are eventually outclassed by Increase Energy when your units’ skills are reliably dealing more damage.

    Cross Cut

    Bad.

    Dark Cuisine & Super Dark Cuisine 

    Great for chests, these reduce defense and deal damage based on current HP total. Eventually outclassed by Increased Energy in most cases.

    Grilled BBQ/ Grilled Purgatory

    The Grilled tree is pretty solid early on and does decent damage to the whole enemy party. It’s secondary next to Blade Chop however, and Increase Energy will more damage later on.

    Later on you can upgrade it to Grilled Purgatory which instead does up to 10% current HP damage then 1% total HP damage per second for 5 seconds. It’s fantastic for Chests and pretty good for high HP targets in general.

    Support

    The Support tree is more like the Healing tree, but it has defensive boosts as well. You should go for the invincibility half of the Support tree last, as it’s much less good than the healing skills.

    Seasoning

    Heals the unit with the lowest HP by 45% plus an 80% chance of a 1% heal over time for 5 seconds.

    One of the best early skills to get, this will save your butt many, many times in the no KO, no Healer, and no Defense stars. 

    Precise Seasoning

    Heals up to 30% of all allied units’ HP. A very good AOE heal.

    Note even after you unlock Divine Seasoning, you can still take this skill along too, to have two AOE heals.

    Divine Seasoning

    For the same energy cost as Precise Seasoning, you restore up to 50% HP and clear all debuffs. Extremely important for Inugami. The best healing skill in the game, since it’s percentage-based, it’s often more practical to take this skill instead of a Support Food Soul in catacombs or Story levels later on.

    Melt & Mold

    Revive 3 random units and restore 40% of their HP. Pretty good in theory, but very often it’s preferable to heal first (even taking along both full-party heals) since once you’ve started losing members it’s possibly already too late.

    Keep Fresh & Always Fresh

    A rarely relevant stepping stone to Zero Degrees. Shields the lowest HP member for up to 3.5 seconds. Usually Seasoning is a better choice.

    Zero Degrees

    All friendly units are invincible for 3 seconds. Not bad, but not very good compared to other skills. May be useful if you’re being OHKO by a skill and cannot use Tangyuan’s linked skill.

    Control

    The Control tree is kind of the “these didn’t fit anywhere else” tree, and is a mishmash of largely unremarkable or incredibly niche skills. It has no passives either.

    However, it has two of the best skills, one incredibly situational and one incredibly multipurpose. You should go for Increase Energy and a single level of Pan, everything else is basically wasted points.

    Increase Energy/Restore Energy

    Note this skill is referred to by two different names ingame, because the localization was created by 1,000 monkeys and a single typewriter.

    Easily one of the best skills in the game, Increase Energy gives 50 energy (half a bar) to all units when maxed. By Nervas you should have this skill maxed and it will pretty much always beat any skill in the Damage tree in terms of damage potential.

    Time casting of Increase Energy well to get the most out of it; it will not “roll over” any extra energy if a character’s bar is already full when cast.

    Up defense

    Raises defense by up to 200% for 3 seconds. Not as good as the 3 seconds of invincibility fro Zero Degrees, but necessary to get Increase Energy.

    Up Damage

    Another subpar buff necessary to purchase simply because Increase Energy is good.

    Pan & Hot Pan

    A situational but useful skill, Pan stuns the enemy for up to 3 seconds. This basically lets you cancel a boss’s skill in Story Mode levels even when you fail an interrupt (cast it just after Interrupt Failed appears).

    There’s no need to level this up at all, as even the base 1 second is enough to cancel the skill cast and that’s the only value this skill really has.

    Titanium Pan

    Stuns all enemies instead of just one. Not worth points.

    Powerful Cleansing & Clean N Scrub

    Removes debuffs for as few as one to as many as all enemy units. I have not come across a situation in which this is useful.

    Magic Mushroom & Holy Mushroom

    Confuses a random target for up to 100% of the time, for up to 5 seconds. Terrible considering confusion only works well against large groups (it’s useless against a single target) and there are food souls who confuse much better.

    Fallen Angels

    Personality

    Much like Pokemon, Fallen Angels have a set “personality” which buffs stat lines of a specific type. The bonus is always 50% (and unlike pokemon, no stat is decreased), and the bonus only applies to the stats on the Fallen Angel, not the equipping character’s stats.

    • Brave – Attack Bonus
    • Cautious – HP Bonus
    • Staunch – Defense Bonus
    • Resolute – Attack Speed bonus
    • Lively – Critical Rate Bonus
    • Meticulous – Critical Damage Bonus

    Daily Trials

    Replenish
    Experience Bottles

    Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday

    Enemies are immune to normal attacks; bring lots of characters with good, full-party skill damage. Support with damage Cooking Talents.

    Spirit Reincarnators

    Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

    Monsters are immune to skill attacks; bring strong attacking Food Souls and use Cooking Talents that buff your Food Souls rather than direct damage.

    Seasoning Supplies

    Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday

    Use only attack souls, ideally with at least 2-4 Linked Skills. Spam damage skills and talents just after the boss heals. If the timer gets too low he’ll OHKO your party one by one. It’s just a DPS gate.

    Appearance Coupons

    Saturday, Sunday

    The only standard way to get Appearance coupons to unlock skins! Bring high defense and good healing souls, don’t worry about dealing damage at all. After most of the time is up, the boss simply leaves and you get your reward.

    Showdown

    Reward: Medals, Showdown Points

    Showdown is the PVP mode of the game, unlocked around level 25.

    Showdown is auto-battle even with linked skills (no Cooking Talents can be used), so all that matters is your characters and their stats and synergy as a team. A Defense and Support unit are very much required, as you won’t last long against any team without them. Otherwise, pick your strongest units for each position. I usually go with 1 Support, 1-2 Defense, and 2-3 Magic/Strength.

    You can set your Fighting Team and your Defense Team independently of your usual Teams menu, so choose wisely. Your defense team will likely be about the same as your attack one, since it’s all auto battle anyway and there’s little reason to pick a different strategy.

    You’ll be paired against other people of your rank, not necessarily close to your Total Power (a rough measure of team strength). You can choose to fight people with a lower Total Power for a potentially easier time, but also look at the team makeup for characters that may cause you problems.

    Showdown rewards 100 Medals/Flames for the first 15 matches a week (1,500 total), then after that the medals are ostensibly awarded by the “difficulty” of the team, ranging around 10-22 medals each, with a median of around 18.

    Your first daily win gets an extra 50 Medals, and there are sidequests and the “activeness” rewards that give you extra medals on top of your wins. To maximize returns check sidequests as soon as they’re completed to get the most medals out of the least number of fights!

    Delivery Orders, Exploration, Air Ship

    Orders

    Rewards: Loot chests, Cooking Points, Fame

    Later on (beyond Character Level 24) you can level up your vehicles with Building Materials, starting with Steel and Low Grade Screws. This reduces delivery time by a flat amount.

    Airship

    Rewards: Talent Points, 3 Rare shards, 2 SR shards (rarely, 1 UR cloud tea shard), Airship Points

    The airship will request 4-8 “crates” of specific items that are random each time. Orders get more complicated as you level up, and once completed you must wait 8 hours for the next order. You can confirm the next airship’s requests before it arrives by tapping the Airship icon to see what you should farm for.

    The airship can request:

    • Cooked dishes (most common)
    • Raw ingredients
    • Blue tier Seasonings (soy sauce etc)
    • XP vials

    You can use Diamonds to speed up the airship’s return or replace items you can’t currently crate up. I don’t personally recommend it; as always I recommend saving Diamonds for permanent unlocks not paying down timers.

    Exploration

    Rewards: Building Materials (Steel, Pine Board, Hollow Brick), Seasonings, Nasi Lemak Shards, 

    Exploration is unlocked after level 24 and requires sending out a Team (much like Delivery, but doesn’t require a delivery vehicle). This is the most consistent way to farm for Steel/Wood materials for upgrading Restaurant Level. Current Explorations can be checked via the Orders button on Main Menu.

    You can send out one team per Map, so for example one team in Gloriville could explore for Wood while one in Light Kingdom looks for Steel. 

    Once finishing the first “floor” of an area, you can optionally explore deeper for higher rewards (at a higher freshness cost). This is why it helps to bring multiple members; Number/level of party sent on exploration doesn’t appear to affect success rate, but it does split the reduction of Freshness across all members.

    Fallen Angels can be encountered, but they’re very low level so even teams of level 10 characters can beat them. Fallen Angel areas must manually be chosen on the explore screen, they won’t surprise you. They come with an extra purple/epic chest which gives an Epic tier seasoning, along with the same chance for Taiyaki/Nasi Lemak shards and a Bottle that other chests have.

    Other Rewards
    Mail

    Occasionally you’ll get rewards in the Mail tab, usually compensation from the devs for bugs/regular server maintenance. A notification will say if there’s anything to collect, as always.

    Main/Side Quests

    Surprisingly easy to miss, tap the (?) button on the Main Menu screen to open the Quests screen. This is how you advance the main story once the Tutorial is finished, and also provides lots of side quests.

    Side quests can be essential for gaining Character Level experience as well as various resources and unlocking Lost Recipes, so check it often and immediately accept all quests (there’s no downside to taking on a quest, even if it takes while to finish). There’s no limit on quests you can accept. Many quests unlock other quests in a line.

    Level Up Bonuses

    Upon hitting certain levels (10,15, 20, etc) Food Fantasy offers you small premium packs of bonus items. For the first 12 hours after hitting that level, they run at a discount (around 50-60% each). You can still buy the items after the 12 hours, but the price goes back to “normal”.

    The rewards aren’t super amazing, but they’re generally better than what your money will otherwise buy. The first couple are very cheap and not too shabby ingame, so if you buy anything they’re a good choice. But Food Fantasy is hardly unplayable if you go purely Free To Play, so don’t feel too bad if you miss the discount.

    Daily Rewards

    Tap the Daily button (unlocked around level 15) on the main menu to see daily tasks. These are recommended to clear as you can get some free shards, Freshness fruits, and other goodies for rather easy tasks. You get extra bonuses for how many tasks you complete, so try to complete all tasks, then open every “picnic basket” at the top as well.

    Stores & Currencies

    Gold

    Gold is the primary currency and used for various purposes. You’ll often have more gold than you know what to do with unless you splurge heavily on Restaurant decorations so don’t feel bad about spending it. 

    Diamonds

    Diamonds are the standard “premium currency”, meant to be bought directly with money though various Rewards ingame give you some. Due to it’s lax localization, the game calls Diamonds “Magic Gems” or “Crystals” in a few places, but it’s all the same item. 

    The best early use for Diamonds in the game is expanding your Team and Fallen Angel Purification slots. This lets you purify more Fallen Angels and send more teams on exploration/delivery at once. 

    Personally I always recommend against paying down timers/refreshing daily inventories/etc with Diamonds, as with any mobile game; these are generally whale-hunting methods trying to get you to pay lots in small batches without realizing how the cost adds up, and ultimately you don’t get a lot out of them. Save up for the permanent, diamond-only rewards, the rest will all come in time, and this is a slow/long game anyway.

    Tips (Tip Store)

    Tips are used exclusively in the Tip Store, under the general Store menu. Tip store refreshes regularly and can be refreshed with diamonds (though I recommend saving them for other uses).

    The Top Store is  primarily for unlocking/upgrading Restaurant-related Food Souls. All Food Souls offered here have skills or higher Freshness to help them in the Restaurant. In my opinion, the Soul Embers here are overpriced relative to the Shards.

    Tip Store has the following items on rotation:

    • Beginner Seasoning
    • Soul Ember (10)
    • Hawthorn Ball Shard (M)
    • Pancake Shard (M)
    • Sandwich Shard (M)
    • Pudding Shard (M)
    • Skewer Shard (M)
    • Jello Shard (M)
    • Jiuniang Shard (R)
    • Omurice Shard (R)
    • Ume Ochazuke Shard (R)
    Medals

    Medals are earned in Showdown, as well as sidequests/rewards related to Showdown. It’s the best way to get shards for certain characters and refreshes regularly like the Tip store.

    • Long Bao Shard (R) x3, x5
    • Spicy Gluten Shard (R) x3, x5
    • Orange Juice Shard (R) x3, x5
    • Hamburger Shard (SR) x1, x2
    • Mango Pudding Shard (SR) x1, x2
    • B-52 Shard (UR) x1

    Guilds

    Guilds require Player Level 32 and cannot even be seen until then; it will be a main menu option, impossible to miss. For a quick video overview, watch…my quick video overview.

    Once you reach level 32 you can apply for guilds or create your own (most players should join one rather than creating). Note guilds are one of very few things that are server-tied in this game, so Light Kingdom players cannot join Gloriville guilds.

    Guilds are groups of players that work toward common goals and reap some rewards for their contribution. Guilds start with a max of 20 players each, earning 10 more slots per level, so it’s important for guilds to keep active or they will level slowly. 

    Inactive players should consider joining more casual guilds, as active guilds will be harmed by players not doing their daily time (it only takes 10 minutes tops to contribute anyway).

    The Guild’s most exclusive features are the Guild Boss (and unlockable Guild Pet, which has stat bonuses in story missions) and the Guild Shop, which contains an exclusive skin and two sets of exclusive Food Soul shards. Without a guild you will not get those bonuses.

    You can chat in the guild lobby, but the guild chat system is very bad and it’s recommended to use a Discord or something else outside the game if communication is critical. Send DMs to guild mades if you want to be sure they read it, the guild chat’s backlog is brutally short and you cannot currently switch your default chat from Global to Guild.

    Guild Participation Checklist

    Guild participation is very simple and should take under 10 minutes at the most, which is why active guilds will often boot players not making the effort. The daily things you should do in your guild:

    • Play the game daily (players idle more than a day or two are usually kicked)
    • Build 10 times daily (Gold)
      • Optional: Build with Building Coupons earned from events, or gems if you like. But the 100k gold contribution is all most non-whale guilds will expect
    • Fight the Disaster Boss
    • Fight the Guild Boss (Event tab in guild)
      • Optional: Your guild might set an expected damage per guild boss and kick under-performers
    • Feed the Guild Pet (if any)
      • Guild Pet is unlocked by beating a Guild Boss
    • Before the reset, check which Guild Missions have been completed and get all rewards. If any missions weren’t cleared, consider working toward that goal more tomorrow.
      • Optional: Check the guild shop for daily items you wish to buy (Spaghetti shards, etc)
    Guild Store

    The Guild store is where you exchange Guild Money for items. The shop resets at irregular 14 hour intervals like the Showdown, meaning effectively two buying attempts per day. Guild Money should be saved for Spaghetti shards, the first unique item the shop has.

    The only particularly notable items in the store are these:

    • Spaghetti Shards
      • 2 per reset
      • 300 Guild Money
      • Guild level 5 to unlock
    • Summoning Embers
      • 150 per reset
      • 10 GM
      • Level ? to unlock
    • Canele Shards
      • 2 per reset
      • 1200 GM
        • Basically unobtainable
      • Level 7? to unlock

    My phone is dead but I’ll add the rest later.

    Guild Missions

    After Guild Level 2 you’ll unlock Guild Missions. These are goals the whole guild contributes to (without having to try) and are reset with the daily reset.

    The guild as a whole gets a moderate boost of XP for each mission completed, and individual guildmates get rewards if the guild completes the mission. An even moderately active guild should have no trouble completing these daily.

    Here’s a list of the guild missions, they get harder each level (with slightly better rewards), but they’re always the same basic idea scaled to the count of players. All missions always give 20 Guild Money as well.

    • Exploration
      • Complete X Exploration floors
      • Soul Fruits
    • Construct
      • Build the guild X times
      • Summoning Embers
    • Love Cook
      • Make X dishes
      • Cooking Talent Points
    • Deliverance
      • Complete X deliveries
      • Gold
    • Honorable
      • Win X Showdowns
      • Beginner Seasoning
        • Later upgraded to Intermediary Seasoning
    • Demon Crypt
      • Clear X Catacomb floors
      • Tidepods Soul Reincarnators
    • Air Ops
      • Complete X Airships
      • Cooking Talent Points

    Guild Boss & Disaster Strategy

    Guild Boss

    Please note you can cancel out of a guild boss fight if you’re going to wipe; pause the game immediately and pick “leave” and you can fight it again. This will help avoid underperforming especially if you bring the wrong team.

    The guild boss is intimidating but very strategic and not nearly as dependant on team strength as you might think; playing smartly, almost any player should be able to survive to (or past) the final fireball. Level/etc matters greatly for DPS, but should not significantly impact survivability.

    The biggest quirk with the guild boss is that defense is also unneeded; the guild boss does damage to your team based on your team’s HP added together and divided by 5; this means the defense stat is totally ignored, and the HP stat is a liability.

    If a unit has too high of HP they won’t be healed as quickly (healing is always absolute, not proportional) and the Fireballs may OHKO lower HP characters. Use Fallen Angels to smooth out HP values if necessary (it usually isn’t).

    Guild Boss Attack Pattern
    Devouring Beast

    HP: 80 Million

    The Lion guild boss has a 100% predictable attack pattern:

    Claw, Claw, Slap
    Claw, Claw, Slap
    Claw, Claw, Slap
    Roar
    Repeat

    Also, Fireballs at exact timings

    Claw

    Claw is a basic non-fractional damage to your tank (the lowest defense unit in the front row). With two good healers this should be completely ignorable. Note you don’t need a defense unit for this boss; “tank” simply refers to who is targeted first by the AI.

    Slap

    Slap is potentially the most dangerous move, it deals a mere 20% damage to a random unit, and it can also stun or silence them. While totally random it can prevent you from healing during a critical moment (and even waste your energy meter if you cast then get silenced).

    If a Slap is about to cause you to wipe, pause the game, leave, and retry. Even with perfect strategy this can be an issue. Since you can know when Slap is coming if you count the claws, you can get a sense of when not to cast, but it might not be worth worrying about since you can cancel and retry anyway.

    Roar

    Roars deal 30% damage plus some lesser Damage Over Time (DOT) to the whole party and will be the primary annoyance in keeping everyone ready to survive fireballs. While you’re still learning the pattern, healing after a Roar is a safe play to make.

    Fireballs

    Fireballs are what’s most likely to KO your team unless your team composition is really bad or silence steals your win. Every once in a while the boss will nuke your team with massive percentage-based damage via the fireballs. Fireballs come at set intervals and are totally predictable.

    Cast your heals just before the timer hits these points, or with Tangyuan just after the times listed.

    Fireball Timers
    • 2:57
      • 70% damage
    • 1:47
      • 95% damage
    • 0:57*
      • There’s a 30% damage Roar (not fireball) here just before the final fireball, be sure to heal AFTER it
    • 0:47
      • This is the litmus test; this one does 99% damage and you will absolutely need either full HP or Tangyuan’s invincibility to survive it
      • If your team’s HP isn’t evened out enough, you may be OHKO even at full HP

    You can also see the boss’ windup if that helps time your skills instead, but it’s quite brief if you’re not on 1x speed. Remember you can pause and leave to restart the fight if you mess up early, as long as your team isn’t wiped yet.

    The Guild Boss is immune to all status effects and is a single target, so most Crowd Control characters are unneeded (but as long as they do enough damage, they can be fine to bring anyway).

    Note the current strategy is only for the big lion boi. Future guild bosses may (likely, will) have different strategy and team requirements.

    Resetting the Boss

    There’s two ways to reset the Guild Boss to make sure you get the most out of your daily attempt.

    First if you can see that things aren’t going well before the match is over, you can simply pause and pick “leave”, then restart the fight right then and there.

    If the “You Lose” screen is already displaying with the “revive” prompt, you may force close the app and restart the game. You can try again as you reopen the game.

    Best Guild Boss Team

    Toso (Leader), Sanma, Mooncake, Miso Soup, Tanguan

    Backup team: Black Tea, your best DPS (Strength/Magic unit), Milk, Miso Soup, Mooncake

    Fallen Angels: Pure attack, potentially with some HP lines just to even out HP. HP should be as low and as equal between characters as possible due to the boss dealing percentage based damage.

    Here’s a video of the guild boss team in action (courtesy of Chack, an amazing guildmate of ours!), surviving the whole duration of the fight. Note he uses Sweet Tofu for better (but less predictable) healing, Tangyuan is not a hard requirement.

    Toso is here for good DPS, and she’s leader so the rest of the party gets their energy skills earlier and more frequently. Guild Boss does not buff itself so she’s not as critical as Disaster boss.

    Sanma and Mooncake are here to allow you to link Miso and Tanguan, so you can time your heals. Timing heals is critical to surviving fireballs, you’ll either want full HP before a fireball hits, or time a Tangyuan invincibility to completely negate it’s damage. These two units also deal great DPS in addition to unlocking the links.

    Miso Soup and Tangyuan are here to heal and the linked skills let you time your heals well so you’re not knocked out. It’s almost a rhythm game with this boss. Miso surprisingly does great damage as well. You can replace Tangyuan with Sweet Tofu or Milk if you don’t have her or if they heal considerably more damage. As long as you survive to the end you’re doing great.

    If using Tangyuan and Fallen Angels are limited, note she doesn’t actually require a Fallen Angel to do her job as long as her skill is linked; she’s there to block fireballs more than heal. Miso Soup does however need a 4 Attack FA, since he does a surprising amount of damage directly.

    Note there is no Defense unit included; defense does not work on this boss and higher HP makes it harder to survive.

    The Backup team is just composed of characters any player is guaranteed to have or get easily from free sources. Slot in any stronger characters as you please, just note the general 2 healer 3 DPS strategy with ideally 2 linked heals.

    Disaster Boss

    Disaster isn’t really a unique thing to guilds, but I’ll list info for it here because it benefits guilds.

    Guilds are quietly ranked on Disaster Boss performance too, and members of the top 100 guilds in the server will get 100 GM daily, and the top 3 guilds get 200 GM. Make sure to get your Disaster boss runs in daily as well so everyone gets the bonus!

    You have 22 hours to get your one try of Disaster in; it expires 2 hours before the daily reset and is fought from the world map. There are gem-only bonuses that can boost your damage but they’re totally optional; make sure you claim the free revive if you’re not using any paid bonuses however.

    Best Disaster Boss Team

    Toso (Leader), Sanma, Laba Congee, Miso Soup, Tom Yum

    Backup team: Mooncake, Miso, Milk, Black Tea, Tom Yum

    Fallen Angels: 4 Defense on Tom Yum 4 Attack on everyone else.

    Buff: Attack Speed seems to be the strongest buff, if you want to pay crystals.

    Here’s footage of the current “best” team in action, surviving the whole duration of the fight. Note the 2* Toso and extremely good FAs, so don’t feel bad if you can’t quite meet that damage; it depends heavily on level/stars/team composition/FAs as always. 

    Toso and Mooncake are here to clear the boss’s buffs (the buffs visually do not seem to go away, but my damage numbers seem to indicate Cake/Toso are still helping). 

    Laba Congee is here because in addition to linking with Toso for one of the best linked heals in the game, she clears the debuffs on your party, allowing you to deal much improved damage. Falling that, Sweet Tofu is an okay replacement, as is Tangyuan if you’re using Mooncake anyway.

    Toso is leader because her energy skill also raises energy for the rest of the party, meaning more and earlier energy skill spam. Failing this, your best damage dealer can be leader.

    Tom Yum is here because the Disaster boss does more damage the higher your team’s HP is, but Defense reduces it’s attacks (unlike Guild Boss, who ignores defense). Tom Yum has a narrow health pool and heals himself with his skills, so in concert with the two healers, he puts up an incredible defensive wall especially since he’s very easy to 5*.

    Sanma and Miso Soup are here just to deal huge single target DPS, plus Sanma helps Miso link and heal even more. Damage over Time seems to ignore Defense which is part of why Miso is surprisingly good.

    The Backup team is just composed of characters every player should have regardless of luck or IAPs, feel free to slot in people from the main team should you have them in the appropriate slot, or your best healers/attackers.  

    Guild Pet

    After beating Guild Boss once, you unlock a Guild Pet, which can be seen in the Ancients tab. It’s a good reason to quickly defeat the Guild Boss. Guild Pets give passive bonuses to the whole guild, and are an extra source of Guild Money/Contribution points.

    Energy

    Dealing damage to the Guild Boss will give Energy for the Guild Pet based on the amount of damage dealt. Enough Energy will raise the Energy Level of the pet, raising it’s combat stats.

    It’s currently unclear what Combat Power actually does for Guild Pet, but it’s likely it will be relevant in a future update/event.

    Also once Guild Pet is unlocked, the Guild Boss’s HP works differently: it no longer resets once a week, but instead will refill only after it is reduced to zero, at which point it takes 24 hours to rest. Each time it rests, it will “level up” and have more HP, but the strategy and difficulty of the fight is still the same.

    Feeding

    Up to 20 times a day each guildmate can feed the guild pet to raise it’s Fullness meter and also earn GM and Contribution points. Raising the Fullness meter adds a small amount to the Guild Pet’s passive effect, 0.1% each level.

    It has 4 “favorite” dishes that rotate at random each day, one from each Cuisine type. Favorite dishes give four times the experience/contribution/Guild Money. The best dishes to use are sorted to the top in the interface.

    Guild Pet List
    Beast Dumpling

    Obtain: Defeat Devouring Beast

    The basic Guild Pet, it buffs Attack in Story/Hard mode quest stages.

    Creating a Guild

    Cost: 200 crystals

    Creating a guild comes with many responsibilities and basically no direct benefits other than being an early member and getting to boss people around. The great majority of players should join rather than creating their guild (at max level, a guild has 110 members, so 1 guild per 50-100 players is about right).

    If you do create your own guild you get to pick its name, icon (which you can change at any time), kick/add members that apply, and assign Vice Presidents which can kick and accept members on your behalf.

    It’s up to the guild master to determine how lenient to be with inactive members, but note that without active contributors it’s a very slow grind to level up your guild (which harms all your guild members too!) and you may even fail guild daily missions if your team is sufficiently lax.

    I’ll note again you get no actual direct rewards for being guild president, you still get the same guild money/etc as everyone else, so really think it over before deciding to make your own.

    SirTapTap’s Guild

    I have a guild myself, called SirTapTap with guild ID 1271, Gloriville Server. See guild rules here.
