General Terms[edit]

  • AI - Artificial Intelligence, refers to the units a player uses that are controlled by the computer.

  • DoT - Damage Over Time. For example, taking damage from Icon Buff 2020008.png Bleeding every few seconds.
  • Enmity/Berserker - Refers to adventurers or skills that scale in strength based on low HP. 'Enmity' is taken from Granblue Fantasy, where a similar mechanic is used. This is associated with Crisis Modifiers, which scale skill power according to current HP.
  • Gun/Caster/MC - Shorthand for Manacaster, a weapon type that uses magic guns.
  • HoT/Regen - Heal over Time, or heals that regenerate HP over time instead of flat heals. See Icon Buff 2060001.png HP Regen.

This can apply if the quest is easy, or if the people in public lobbies have enough knowledge of the quest to make it manageable.

Team-Build Terms[edit]

  • Dragon Battery - A unit that can generate dragon gauge through a skill or ability, instead of relying on gauge drops from enemies.
  • Dragon Engine - Teams that combine a "Combo = Shapeshift Prep" Chain Co-ability, a unit that can generate high hit count, and/or the buff Icon Buff 2050091.png Overdamage. The result is a team that can generate dragon gauge extremely quickly, which can lead yo large DPS and/or utility benefits.
  • Exodia - A very powerful solo-play flame team consisting of 110399 01 r05.png Ayaha & Otoha, 100013 04 r05.png Gala Leonidas, 100032 04 r05.png Gala Laxi, and 100002 15 r05.png Kimono Elisanne. This team makes use of "Dragon Engine" as well as Amps to deal extreme damage, heal large amounts, and use several dragon transformations. (However, the team is not nearly as powerful in co-op, since co-abilities are not shared between different players)

Strategy Terms[edit]

  • Berserk Skip - A strategy for The Agito Uprising: Legend, where the boss is overwhelmed by DPS and defeated before they can enter the dangerous Icon EnemyAbility 0034.png Berserk phase.
  • Slime Skip - A strategy for Ciella's Wrath: Legend, where the boss is overwhelmed by DPS and pushed into Icon EnemyAbility 0034.png Berserk phase before the "slime" sequence of actions occurs. Normally, a slime will appear and must be kept alive until a specific moment. The slime must then be killed to gain defensive buffs, which prevent death to a one-hit KO move soon after. The slime sequence usually leads to a dip in DPS until it's over (as to not kill the slime too early), so Slime Skip aims to make the run faster by skipping it altogether.
  • Break Burst - A strategy that involves saving high damage skills when the boss is about to enter Break state, then unleashing those skills for a large amount of quick damage.

Summoning Terms[edit]

  • Gala/Gala Remix - Summon banner featuring limited units with increased 5 Icon Rarity 5.png summon rates, and lower pity amount needed for a guaranteed 5 Icon Rarity 5.png summon. A normal "Gala" occurs at the end of the month, introduces a new Gala unit each time, and these Gala units are usually powerful. A "Gala Remix" occurs in the middle of the month, does not introduce a new Gala unit, and instead features an old one. See Gala Dragalia Showcase for more details.
  • Mite/Mites - Icon Wyrmite.png Wyrmite, the freemium summoning currency.
  • Spark/Sigil - Icon Wyrmsigil.png Wyrmsigils, a special currency that can be exchanged for a unit of the player's choice on a banner. Does not carry between banners. See Summoning for more details. (Not to be confused with the Sigil combat mechanic used by apostle adventurers).
  • Suptix - Dream Summon/Choose-a-5 Icon Rarity 5.png ticket. The Suptix term is taken from Cygames' Granblue Fantasy. It alludes to the Dream Summon, which is a shop pack that lets the buyer receive an adventurer or dragon of choice. See Dream Summon Special.
