Alchemy Stars: Character & Team Composition Novice Guide
June 30, 2021 – Alchemy Stars, the revolutionary line strategy RPG, has gained more than 2 million global downloads & 5 million registration within just 2 weeks of its launch. Thanks to the overwhelming support from fellow Navigators, Alchemy Stars also announced that they are working on Indonesian & Thai language and will be available to the game very soon!
Each character in Alchemy Stars have their own specialty. These are Detonator, Sniper, Converter and Support. These specialties will determine how you will build your team composition based on the role of the characters.
The role of each character can be categorized to Detonator, units that specialize in dealing large AOE damage to multiple targets around them with proper chain combo; Sniper, high damage single-hitting units that can snipe down targets from longer ranges; Converter, units that can change the tile’s color with their active skills; and Support, which can either heal, provide 2x Combo, shield buff or even debuff enemies with stun, poison, burn, bleed and other effects.
In terms of building a team in this game, a mono color team is preferable because it has better damage output and sustainability as 5 of your units will attack together if you trigger the right color tiles. Duo color teams are acceptable for their flexibility due to element counter but rainbow teams are highly discouraged.
An example of a Thunder Mono Team would look like.
The general team composition should have 1 main damage dealer (DPS), 1 Support healer & 1 Converter. Those are the main units that help you breeze through most of the stages. DPS (Damage Per Second) units are responsible for damage output and are normally placed as Team Captain as they will always trigger attack regardless of tiles color. Healers will keep you alive and are strongly recommended to have especially for Secret Territories while Converters will turn the tiles into your team color to help you achieve a better chain combo. The 4th and 5th units are highly suggested to have a teleporter that can help to reposition whenever players get into a tricky situation and a second converter because an extra pair will always come in handy.
