All you need to know to increase the Combat Power of your Fighters!
Most Hero Collection games has 2-4 different ways to increase the Combat Power of your Fighters. In KOF Allstar, there are 5 main and 4 sub ways to increase the strength of your Fighter.
1. Level up
Leveling your Fighter is the most basic way to strengthen them. Leveling increases your Stats and unlocks the number of Cores that you can unlock. Currently, the maximum level for each Fighter is at 90.
There are 2 ways to increase level, one is by bringing your Fighters to battle while the other way is to feed them with Power Up materials.
Players can evolve your Fighters to increase the star rarity of your Fighter. Evolution increases your Fighter’s Stats and Leader Buff.
3. Limit Break
The maximum level for a 6* Fighter is 60. However, you can further increase the Maximum level by Limit Breaking them. In order to do so, you will need to spend Gold and another currency called Souls.
|Level||Required Souls||Total Required|
|61 – 70||10 souls per level||100|
|71-80||20 souls per level||200|
|81-90||30 souls per level||300|
There are 4 different types of Souls where you can stack them together to Limit Break your Fighter .
|Types of Soul||Where to get|
|Specific Char Soul||Dupe Fighter
Soul Quest (3 times a day free)
Advent Dungeon (rotates weekly)
Story mode (certain Fighters)
|KOF Soul||Event Reward|
|Color Soul||Advent Dungeon (rotates weekly)
|Rainbow Soul||Event Reward|
Cores are like skill trees in other games. You can unlock your first Special Skill from the Core tree and level your other skills to increase their damage. Also, other than your basic stats, you can also increase your secondary stats such as Crit rate, Crit Dmg and Pen Rate. There are also other special stats such as Cooldown reduction, burn duration and even Combo duration.
Equip can be unlocked at Player Rank 15. This is the place where you can equip Battle cards that will boost your stats and also acquire another Special Skill. For more detailed information on Battle Cards, please read this guide.
6, 7, 8 – Leader Skill, Fighter Link, Team Relation
The above stat boost will only take place depending on your Team Formation.
The first Fighter in your party will always be the leader and will be able to activate his/her leader skill during battle. Each Fighter have their own unique Leader skill. Depending on your team’s setup, you will need to change your Leaders often to make use of the benefits. With that said, Shermie has one of the better leader skill as she allows all your team member to increase ATK by 60%. However, your Fighter’s HP must be 70% or more to activate the buff.
In party formation, you can equip a Striker to 1 of your 3 main Fighters. A small percentage of the Striker’s stats will be added onto your main Fighter’s stats. So a high level Striker is beneficial to your team.
Additionally, each Fighter has a special relationship with another Fighter(s). If you use them as your Striker, you can unlock Relation Effect that can further boost their fighting capabilities.
Tip: There is a “Link” symbol on the top right if your Fighter matches the relation.
