Stats & SkillsEdit

Partner status

Each Partner has four stats:

  • FRAG - Influences the amount of Fragments you earn for playing songs in Music Play mode. Every 5 FRAG above or below 50 equates to 10% Fragments above or below what you would normally get. (For example, if your Partner's FRAG is 60, you'll receive a 20% increase, or a 1.2x multiplier.)
  • STEP - Influences the number of Steps earned after playing songs in World Mode. Every 1 STEP above or below 50 equates to 2% steps above or below what you would normally get.
  • TYPE - A quick indicator of the Partner's characteristics. This based on the partner's skill. There are three type of partners: 
    • Support - Partners with a green skill, such as the EASY one.
    • Balance - Partners without a green skill or a red one.
    • Challenge - Partners with a red skill, such as the HARD one and Hikari (Zero)'s.
  • SKILL - An attribute that changes a gameplay aspect and difficulty.
    • EASY - EASY Recollection Rate is played, which deplete it less for 'LOST' notes. Some partners may have an additional benefit, such as Hikari & Fisica, which gives you +15 Fragments when playing a song on Past or Present. (This is denoted by a + after "EASY".)
      • This is a green skill, marking the type of those as "Support".
      • Clearing a song for the first time with this skill marks the song with a green C instead of the normal purple C, which doesn't technically count as a clear for the purposes of the in-game cleared song count and the requirement of unlocking some songs. (Purple C or higher will overwrite this.)
    • HARD - HARD Recollection Rate is played, which stop your play and give a Track Lost if the gauge reaches 0%. Some partners may have an additional risk, such as Ilith, with whom you'll lose 100 Fragments if you lose a song. (This is denoted by a + after "HARD".)
      • This is a red skill, marking the type of those as "Challenge"
      • Clearing a song with this skill marks the song with a red C instead of the normal purple C. (Full Recall and Pure Memory will overwrite this.)
    • MIRROR - Reverses all notes and arcs. Can be combined with any Recollection Rate type.
    • VISUAL - Skills that have various purely visual effects during gameplay.
    • OVERFLOW - Hikari (Fracture)'s unique skill, which starts at 0% Easy Recollection Rate and switches to the Hard one when the previous gauge reaches 100%.
      • Clearing a song with this skill also gives a green C. Unlike EASY skill, however, this one does not have a color in the Partner select screen.
    • Hikari (Zero)'s unique skill, commonly referred by players as "ZERO", in which one LOST note will reset the Recollection Rate to 0%.
      • Like HARD skills, this is a red one. Despite that, it gives the player a purple C when used for clearing the song.
    • Some skills affect the Fragments you earn under certain conditions.

Notes:

  • You can deactivate your Partner's skill by pressing once on the skill in the Partner page. This will "seal" the skill. You can press it again to "unseal" it. Skills and Stats are automatically sealed/deactivated when offline/not logged in with the exception of Hikari's skill.

LevelingEdit

Partners can be leveled up. They start off at level 1 when obtained, and max out at level 20. Partners can only gain EXP (Experience Points) while playing in World Mode. When a partner levels up, their FRAG and STEP count can improve. In general, stats have diminishing returns as levels are gained.

After completing a song in World Mode, the selected partner gains EXP based on the result rating:

GainedExp = SongRating x 6

Song rating is calculated from Chart Constants

All partners share the same EXP requirements for leveling. Level 1 requires 0 exp (starting level), and the requirements increase for higher levels.

EXP Requirements

LEVEL 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
