If you’re a serious follower of this website, you probably noticed that we didn’t post any new article on our Beginner’s Guide recently.
Well, that’s because we were focusing all our efforts on a big brand new functionality: Character Reviews!
Most of the Gacha games offer a variety of characters, items, and customizations that can be overwhelming for a beginner player (and sometimes for veteran players too!).
The Alchemist Code is not different. You create your team with a few Characters. But for each of those, you have to consider its Element, Leader Skill, Job, and Abilities (which give you some Skills) that will make your character more resistant, deal more damage or even have more mobility.
That can be difficult to understand which character is better than another when they all look the same…
This is why we decided to create a Character Reviews system!
Principle of the Character Reviews System
The goal we wanted to achieve with this system is to create a place where you can find the perfect character that fit the needs of your team!
That’s right, you are the base of this system. And without you, this project would be impossible.
As much as we love The Alchemist Code, we won’t be able to review every job of every character from Day 1. It will take some time to have a complete guide.
Our first step will be to offer you a base we can work on together: The Alchemist Code Database.
The Database will cover some parts of the game related to Team Building: Skills, Abilities, Jobs, and Characters. (at the beginning, at least. We might add more to it later)
For each of these, we need you to give your own opinion in the comment section. Here are some examples:
Why is this Ability better than that other one in a given case?
Is there an alternative to this Character with better Abilities and Skills?
Which Job to choose for this Character when you want to nuke the enemies?
There are plenty of advice you can give here, and people will certainly add their opinion on top of what you wrote!
You might even learn something if you’re ready to share with others 😉
The Alchemist Code Database
To be able to create a Character Reviews system, we needed to have some data to display. Smart, right?
That’s why we worked on a well-thought system to help us speed up things later.
This system took us roughly a week to code and we are near the end!
For now, we can easily create data for Skills, Abilities, and Jobs. And we can display them correctly.
The last thing we have to do is to create Characters’ data and wire things up in a template file!
For now, a small amount of data is available for the following categories:
Feel free to start arguing on those until we start the real Character Reviews in a few days!
