  • Any chip exceeding the maximum useful storage cost as listed for that level cannot be used for fusing into diamond chips in any way and can safely be discarded or sold. 
  • When fusing chips level 0, 1, 3, 5, or 7, it is recommended to use the higher storage cost from what is compatible in the chart to avoid wasting the lower cost diamond chips while fusing when possible. 
  • When fusing chips level 2, 4, or 6, use only Diamond Chips in order to create a new Diamond Chip.

 
 
 

Plug-in Chip Fusing Flowchart

Plug-in Chip Effect Cap

 

  • All stackable plug-in chips have hard caps. These caps are equivalent to the bonus you would receive from a plug-in chip that has been upgraded to +8, because of how bonuses are allocated across the levels the most efficient way to get the maximum bonus for the lowest storage cost isn’t always through a +8♦ [21] chip. 
  • For some chips it is possible to achieve the same maximum bonus as a +8 chip while costing less than [21] storage.

The following are charts showing the most efficient chip setup to achieve the maximum bonus.
