Draconius GO Types And Type Effectiveness

Draconius GO Types And Type Effectiveness 1

Draconius Go has a lot in common with Pokemon Go. A Pokemon Go player will find it easy to get started and understand the gameplay.

But that does not mean Draconius Go does not have anything new to offer, it has built upon what was missing in Pokemon Go.

Same way type effectiveness different, as Draconius features only 5 types (elements) which exist in perfect balance: each element is super effective over only one other element, each element has one direct counter and one indirect counter.

Type effectiveness

As is the case with most element-based combat games, such as Pokemon Go, elements do not directly counter each other, they do it in a rock-paper-scissors pattern. The same is the case for Draconius GO.

Earth element, for example, is Super Effective over Arcana but can be countered by Fire Type. Water can be countered by Air, and Fire, which we started from, deals reduced damage to Air.

This relationship is best described by the following image, depicting the Draconius GO type effectiveness chart.

Note: Arcana is marked as Dungeon in this picture.

Type advantages table

When you untangle the graph illustrated above, you get the following table as a result:

FireEarthWind

However, due to the circular nature of the type system in Draconius GO, each element has also two additional properties that can be calculated from this table:

  • Takes reduced damage from
  • Takes increased damage from

For example, for Arcana, the complete type information set is as follows:

  • Deals increased to Wind
  • Deals reduced to Fire
  • Takes increased from Earth
  • Takes decreased from Water

As a result, it’s evident that each element has one strong counter element (in the case of Fire that’s Water) and one weaker counter type (is Arcana). We consider the weaker counter type to be the type that takes reduced damage from the source element.
