Spirit rank question

#1netj999Posted 8/8/2012 12:56:21 AM
Are you able to make spirits with the rank of star? The same rank as r & r seal etc. or is A rank the highest you can make?

Also what are the advantages of an a rank spirit compared to a c rank one besides more abilities?

Making spirits in a Risky Winds world boosts their rank by 1, so anything that would've been an A would upgrade to S.

Make Spirits when the Forecast for a world is on Risky Winds. That raises the Rank by one level, allowing *-rank Spirits.

And apparently they get better stats.

The rank doesn't affect the abilities of a Dream Eater, only its stats if I understand correctly.

Correct; same abilities regardless of rank. This is why I was happy with C to E Dream Eaters.

Same here. All of my Dream Eaters are C to E because I couldn't bring myself to grind for materials. I figure the stats don't make that much of a difference.

What about AI ? I've heard that rank affects it too... (along with affinity of course)

The two materials used determine the starting rank. I've seen one spirit's combo that gave me star rank at first.
The risky winds forecast increases rank by one.
Using more of the materials increases rank. Looks like you need 50% more of both materials to increase the rank by one...

I don't know if behavior changes (though it probably does; my Kyroo buffs me every 5 seconds & attacks like crazy), but S rank spirits' link gauges definitely charge faster. I had an S and an E spirit with me just ability farming, and I linked almost 3 times with the S spirit before linking once with the E.

^^ I only Link Critical'd a couple times too, some of which were with the E dude.
