Hey there, welcome to this post, Everything you need to know about Limbus Company – Tips how to avoid mistakes may be found in this guide. Take each step by this guidance.
There are things you should know about game when starting, else you might lose quite some time and resources for no reason.
Starting the game
The first error is going straight for gacha rolls and then using 2 or 3-star characters rather than basic ones. The basic 12 characters are already powerful enough to win the game, and they receive free evolutions. Gacha characters require late-game resources that you do not have and should not waste.
If you mix those 2-3 stars into a team, they will eat experience and deny other versions of themself from leveling up. Later while freebies going to evolve for free, cool guys and girls will stay weak and get weaker the deeper you go into game. First evolution happens after winning the story ‘Inferno-The Outcast’ scenario, followed by second evolution for beating ‘Inferno-The Unloving’.
Evolution grants additional pa*sive bonuses and very strong active skill, while also improving old skills. In Limbus Company evolution mechanic is called “Uptie Tier”. You can check it by opening the sinners list and click-n-holding left mouse button on any sinner’s portrait.
Another reason to ignore high-star characters is EGO system. During Gacha rolls you can find characters OR their ego. You start the game with 12 basic ego unlocked for free, their rank called “Zayin” (green colour). You can equip five different egos on every character, regardless of their number of stars. This is why upgrade resources should be spent on ego-moves instead of characters. Feelings come and go, ego stays.
Do not try to understand everything at once; game has a lot of mechanics thrown at you from the get-go, i am not gonna describe them, and it’s not needed. What you do need tho is to find a friend with maxed out character (30 lvl). In the main menu click the Limbus Company logo (near the experience bar in the bottom left corner of the screen). Then switch to the “friends” tab, then “add friend”. You can try adding random people or ask for help on forums.
Before starting battle click “Edit Team”, then click any character, then “Support” tab — there you can see characters of your friends and freely equip one of them. But only one can be borrowed, so you still need to do a little bit of planning.
EGO is a must-have (not)
Majority of guides on Steam and Youtube are either trolling, giving false information or both at the same time. In order to make a good team, there are several complicated tactics. We will not cover them, i don’t want you to pluk out hair. EGO moves is among those tactics, it requires the perfect combination of 5 characters as well as math, tons of clicking and memorizing numbers. The second system is affinities which are 7 types like sloth, lust etc. We don’t care about them as well. We chill.
What you need is very very simple, just click and hold the portrait of your character in the main menu and look to the right. There you can see his 2 active skills and their colour. That’s it, you did half of job already. Now just find 5 characters with similar colours to form a team and during battle, make a chain of similar colours. Done, no complications. Here is a picture of the skill colours:
As you can see Teal (light blue) is the rarest among all, only sinners 5 and 11 have it and it is their third skill. You unlock the third one much later, for now, concentrate on the first two. Let’s look at best combo:
2, 5, 6, 11 all have Blue-Yellow colour, which is very good. We can add the number 12 as extra character. This team has 11 yellow and 10 blue cards for ridiculous damage and can activate EGO of number 11 every turn thanks to 2*blue + 2*yellow mana. This squad is enough to beat majority of content, while not really going deep into anything.
