Everything You Need To Know About Subordinates & Consorts in ISEKAI: Demon Waifu
Unlike traditional RPGs, characters in ISEKAI: Demon Waifu don’t have the most active roles in the game which put them directly in the spotlight. Instead, they play facilitative roles that make a lot more sense when playing war games where the key characters are simply generals or advisors as opposed to being the main soldiers in the army. However, that leaves players with a lot of questions on how to best use these units on the battlefield to bring out their maximum potential.
Consorts and subordinates may play widely different roles in the Demon Prince’s army, but both rely on each other very much. ISEKAI: Demon Waifu put a heavy emphasis on the player collecting different characters to add to their roster. Luckily, this game doesn’t make use of the dreaded Gacha System that many players dislike with a passion. We’ve already discussed these units’ uses and how to get them on the Resource Guide, so check that out if you want to learn about it.
Consorts are the Demon Prince’s wives. They act as managers of the kingdom on behalf of the Demon Prince and provide moral support for the army. The most important role of the Consort is discovering and managing Resource Production Areas on outings. Modifiers such as Affection and Consort Mark Strength play a big role in properly managing such production areas.
Consorts also have individual story quests, which give the player additional rewards simply by completing them. This creates a deeper connection with each of the wives in the Demon Prince’s harem by way of narrative. It is important for the player to give equal attention to all of the consorts as much as possible to reap the best rewards possible during the playthrough.
Affection influences the rarity of a discovered Production Area. Consorts with higher affection will have a better chance of discovering Legendary Resource Production Areas, which is the highest rarity in the game. Construction of a higher rarity production area produces better rewards such as more attribute bonuses and bigger trade routes.
The most common way to raise a consort’s affection is by giving her gifts. Playing through the consort’s personal story quests will also grant huge amounts of affection points, so keep an eye out for that. The final way to raise affection is by going on Outings and meeting with them by chance to initiate a dialogue.
Strengthening Consort Mark
Consort Marks influence the likelihood of discovering a Resource Production Area. Higher Consort Marks increase the likelihood of the Demon Prince running into the wife with the highest Consort Mark strength. This makes it easier for the Demon Prince to immediately start construction of a new Resource Production Area, as long as that consort is not currently managing another plot.
The most common way to raise Consort Mark Strength is by giving her gifts. An ideal way to raise it is by collecting Costumes for your consorts as they offer a big boost. You can do that by playing through the consort’s story quests and finishing every chapter or by buying specific outfits in the shop.
Blessings are an important skill that consorts can bestow upon Subordinates that increases one or all of their attributes. Higher-level Blessings can be unlocked by raising a consort’s affection level. Each consort bonds with other subordinates depending on their background with each other, as long as the player manages to unlock all of the Blessing types.
The cost for bestowing Blessings can be earned by taking consorts out on a “Date.” Depending on the Demon Prince’s performance and Consort Mark Strength, the number of Blessing Points that are rewarded after their session increases significantly. The cost for each Blessing also increases with the subordinate’s level.
Subordinates are the Demon Prince’s advisors and generals. They influence the Kingdom’s productivity and also take charge of Demon Prince’s safety and security. Some subordinates also play a big part in the development of the city as they research new ideas for the betterment of the Demon Prince’s Kingdom. Each Subordinate has attributes that affect the production of resources.
- Military – reduces the number of soldiers lost per battle
- Trade – increases the production of Magic Crystals
- Negotiation – increases the production of Food and Grain
- Leadership – increases the number of troops recruited
The PvP skill influences a Subordinate’s direct combat stats such as Crit Chance and Crit Damage. The higher the level of the PvP skill, the deadlier these subordinates become when fighting in the arena, attempting assassinations, or challenging boss fights. PvP skills are important in competing in the Arena because only one subordinate can fight at a time.
The PvP skill is primarily increased in the Library. Each training session will last at least three hours, and the player can send the same unit as many times as they want to until their PvP skill maxes out. It’s important for players to figure which of their units have the highest combat stats so that they can prioritize upgrading them in the library first without wasting time.
Levels & Ranks
Every subordinate can be leveled up. Leveling up a subordinate doesn’t only increase their attributes but also the primary combat stats such as Attack Power and Speed. Leveling up a unit requires the consumption of Magic Crystals, which can be obtained in various ways. Players must keep in mind that Leveling Up each one of their units is essential not only for resource production but also for defensive purposes in the Arena.
Once a subordinate has been leveled to their Level Cap, players can upgrade the unit to a higher rank. After the subordinate is promoted, the Level Cap increases once again, allowing the player to upgrade their units further. Players will need to collect Crystals in order to promote a unit to the next rank, though. Worry not; these Crystals can be obtained by completing quests, participating in events, or buying them in the cash shop.
