With Aether Gazer opening its global servers later today, we have for you a tier list ranking each Modifier that you could potentially get when rolling the gacha in the game.
Do take note that some Modifiers perform better when paired with their Signature Functor which we did take into account in the case of some Modifiers such as Tsukuyomi. This list is also based of Modifiers which will make an appearance in Global version 1.0.
Within the game there are five type of Gen-Zones to take note of, they are: Shinou, Yggdrasil, Olympus, Nile, Asterism. These gen-zones play an important role during combat as pairing the same type of gen-zones grant the team additional bonuses in Combat and Modified Mode. Modified Mode bonus is obtained by combining two Modifiers of the same Gen-Zone while the Combat bonuses is gained by having a full party from the same Gen-Zone.
