Tip #1. Re-rolling for a Strong Start

Characters in Code Geass: Lost Stories are going to be diverse and play a unique role in different formations.

A strong start by re-rolling will fetch you with a higher chance of faster progression compared to other players who do not re-roll.

Tip #3. Devising a Solid Formation of Pilots and Knightmare Frames

A great formation is only formed by composing it with Pilots and Knightmare Frames that synergize with each other. There’s a lot of things to keep in mind, such as Offense, Defense, type of battlefield, and the resources your characters will consume in battle. By resources, we mean the energy points located at the bottom of the screen. Each character requires a certain amount of energy to be deployed on the battlefield. Once defeated or redacted, they are also imposed with a cooldown time until they can be deployed again.

Pilots come in different rarities and roles. Let’s take a look at all of them:

  • Assault – These are generally melee-ranged warriors that cost less energy to be deployed into battles. They also act as a great source of dealing damage to enemies in front of them.
  • Repair – These Pilots are generally not participating in battles, rather they support allies from outside by providing KMF skills.
  • Guard – These are generally melee-ranged knights that cost less energy to be deployed into battles. They also act as gatekeepers, safeguarding our zones from enemies.
  • Specialist – These Pilots are generally more inclined towards healing, and buffing allied pilots on the battlefield. They cover a wide range of allies to heal them with their basic attacks and abilities.
  • Strategist – These Pilots are best known for their wide array of buffing and debuffing capabilities.
  • Exterminator – These Pilots are the titular DPS characters in the game. They are known for having the highest base attack and DPS potential in the entire game.
