Soft-Reroll Guide

From Dragalia Lost Wiki
(Redirected from Reroll Guide)
Disambig.png This article is about the rerolling system that is included within the game itself. For the process that involves deleting and re-downloading the game, see Hard-Reroll Guide.

This guide covers pull priorities when using the in-game reroll system, the Tutorial Summon Showcase, which was introduced in version 2.4.0.

How to Reroll[edit]

You will have the option to reroll fairly early, while the game is downloading extra data in the background. At first, there are three options:

  • Appearance Rates - shows the full listing of available units, and the odds of getting each one.
  • Tutorial Details - Has more details on how the reroll system works (or you can read this guide, whichever works for you).
  • Summon - performs 50 summons and lets you view the results. Every 10th summon in the batch is guaranteed 4 Icon Rarity 4.png or above.

Once you press Summon, you'll need to press "Next" 4 times until you reach the last page and view your full results. Then you'll have 3 more options:

  • Results - shows what you pulled in an easily-screenshottable format
  • Reset - dumps your current reroll and performs the 50 summons again.
  • Accept - keeps your current result and lets you start playing the game.

Use Results to look over what you have. If you don't like it, you can Reset to try the 50 pulls again. Once you're happy with your pulls, press Accept.

Rerolling Goals[edit]

The reroll summon showcase has a 6% rate for 5 Icon Rarity 5.png units, so you should expect to get about 3 on average with each attempt.

Also, try to have as few duplicates as possible. Duplicates of dragons can be equipped to multiple adventurers, but dupes of adventurers won't do anything.

General Tips[edit]

  • In rerolls, dragons are more important than adventurers. Low-rarity adventurers can be built up to become useful, but dragons are "what you see is what you get", and have much less room to be improved past their base state. This means you're more gated by luck when it comes to dragons, compared to adventurers.
    • Adventurers should NOT be ignored completely in rerolls though, they're just relatively-lower priority.
    • The importance of adventurers vs dragons evens out the further you get into the game. But building a strong dragon core early on is very important, so that you can actually reach later content in the game.
  • Not all 5 Icon Rarity 5.png in this game are meta. - While most 5 Icon Rarity 5.png are strong, some do not bring the tools necessary for endgame fights, so they are not top priority picks.
  • Quality over quantity - The aim is NOT just a large amount of 5 Icon Rarity 5.png, you want ones that are actually useful. If you get a unit not listed here, you can ask in the community discord (linked later) whether that unit is worth keeping. But generally you'll end up sticking to the charts in this guide anyway.
  • Meta shifts can happen whenever a major new piece of content is added - The recommendations below reflect current meta preferences for units. New fights (particularly endgame fights) could cause units to suddenly become more relevant or less relevant over time.

Rating your Roll[edit]

When rating your roll:

  • Consider any "excellent" dragons as worth 2 points, and any "great" dragons as worth 1 point. Your goal is to have a roll worth at least 4 points.
  • From there, check for elemental coverage. You want your dragons to cover at least 2 different elements.

If you've passed the above checks, post screenshots of your results in the community Discord server and someone can help you make the final call.

What's a "Gala" Unit?[edit]

Gala units are a special set of higher-power 5-star units, which are usually variants of main story characters. The summon showcases they can appear in (called "Gala Dragalia" or "Gala Dragalia Remix") are available on a limited basis twice per month. This reroll system includes several Gala units, so pulling some is generally very valuable, as they can be hard to get otherwise.

  • Please note that "Gala" doesn't display on the units in-game. For example: Gala Mars will simply display as "Mars" in-game. You can check this page to make sure who's who, or visit the Gala Dragalia Showcase article for a full listing of all Gala units.

Dragon Discussion

Pros:

  • 90% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill is strong, can be used twice per transformation, and the user gets an additional 20% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up per use of the skill.
  • Icon Ability 1010007.png Refills all of the user's skills to 100% after ending dragon form, allowing for high burst damage.

Cons:

  • Skill refill requires actually transforming, meaning it will have no effect on computer-controlled allies who do not transform.

Pros:

  • 70% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 30% Icon Buff 1021001.png Flame Damage Up.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill is strong, and can be used twice per transformation.
  • Rivals 200009 01.png Gala Mars - player-controlled adventurers usually prefer Mars, while computer-controlled allies prefer GRAgni.

Cons:

  • Elemental damage buff only works against Icon Element Wind.png wind or Icon Element None.png neutral enemies, limiting off-element usage.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Elemental damage buff only works against Icon Element Flame.png flame or Icon Element None.png neutral enemies, limiting off-element usage.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Elemental damage buff only works against Icon Element Water.png water or Icon Element None.png neutral enemies, limiting off-element usage.

Pros:

  • 70% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 30% Icon Buff 1021004.png Light Damage Up.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill is strong, and can be used twice per transformation.
  • Access to Icon Buff 1020001.png HP Up for the user, which can help in auto-battle.

Cons:

  • Elemental damage buff only works against Icon Element Shadow.png shadow or Icon Element None.png neutral enemies, limiting off-element usage.

Pros:

  • 70% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 30% Icon Buff 1021005.png Shadow Damage Up.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill is strong, and can be used twice per transformation.
  • DPS-wise, performs similarly to 210148 01.png High Chthonius after 2 transformations, but without needing that time to ramp up.

Cons:

  • Elemental damage buff only works against Icon Element Light.png light or Icon Element None.png neutral enemies, limiting off-element usage.

Pros:

  • 45% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up
  • Icon Ability 1010007.png Refills user's skills by 35% every time each skill is used, essentially speeding up skill usage permanently after the first use.
  • During dragon form, can place a Icon Skill 044.png Buff Zone that rapidly refills the skills of teammates. This can allow for high team-wide burst damage.
  • Versatile for any role: DPS, Buffer, or Healer.
  • The buff zone still works even if she is equipped on a unit that doesn't match her element.

Cons:

  • Poor dragon form DPS.

Pros:

  • 35% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 35% Icon Buff 1020001.png HP Up + 70% Icon Buff 1020006.png Skill Damage Up.
  • Good dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill has high hit count, good damage, and essentially screen-wide range.
  • Dragon skill applies the debuff Icon Buff 2020013.png Wind Res Down, which has an infinite duration (unless the boss specifically cleanses it).

Cons:

  • Requires maintaining combo, which may be difficult on some adventurers. Additionally, computer-controlled allies are generally poor at maintaining combo, making him better-suited for player control.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Requires skilled play to avoid getting afflicted, so newer players may struggle to use him. GRZephyr is far safer and more consistent.
  • -150% affliction res on the user. This makes him very risky in quests with unavoidable afflictive hits, such as Ciella.
  • User is Affliction poison large icon.png Poisoned after dragon form ends, consuming 40% of max HP over 12 seconds. This is solvable with a healer, but can lead to being at low HP in dangerous situations, if dragon form or healing is timed poorly.
  • Questionable in auto and on computer-controlled allies in general, as the self res down may decrease survival.
  • Falls off in content where the boss resists afflictions.

Pros:

  • 30% Icon Buff 1020001.png HP Up + 35% Icon Buff 2010001.png Skill Haste Up.
  • Great support dragon, ideal for Icon Element Wind.png wind buffers and healers. HP adds bulk and strengthens heals, while skill haste speeds up the charging of buffs and heal skills.
  • Massive Icon Buff 2060001.png HP Regen heal on dragon skill, that also grants the team Icon Buff 2050004.png Energy for some burst damage.

Pros:

  • 60% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 50% shapeshift prep.
  • Shapeshift prep is quite valuable, as it lets you access dragon transformation immediately, and can speed up ramping effects such as Dragon's Claws.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill offers Affliction poison large icon.png Poison, Icon Buff 2020003.png Defense Down, and automatic refill-over-time for the user's skill gauges. This enables the user to use skills more often.
  • Performs well on both DPS and support roles.

Pros:

  • 65% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up initially, with up to 40% additional strength (105% strength total) and 30% additional HP after 2 transformations.
  • Adventurers with frequent dragon gauge access, such as 100031 03 r05.png Alberius, can claim the additional strength quickly.

Cons:

  • Adventurers who cannot access dragon form quickly may be better off using a dragon like 210087 01.png Shinobi.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Poor dragon form DPS.

Pros:

  • 20% Icon Buff 1020008.png Attack Rate Up + 50% Icon Buff 1020005.png Critical Rate Up.
  • Extreme critical rate means the 1.7x damage for critical hits is easy to activate.
  • Attack Rate is useful on both DPS and buffers, as faster attacks = faster skill charging = more DPS/more buffs.
  • DPS-wise, performs similarly to 210082 01.png Konohana Sakuya.

Pros:

Cons:

  • 5 Unbind.png Quickly falls off in content that lasts 4 minutes or more, due to Surge running out.
  • 5 Unbind.png DPS gain is diminished if there are lots of buffs flying around.
  • 5 Unbind.png Weaker dragon form than 210147 01.png Gala Reborn Agni, even with Surge active

Pros:

Cons:

  • Poor dragon form DPS.

Pros:

Pros:

  • 60% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up
  • Dragon skill has access to the status effect Affliction stun large icon.png Stun, which can cancel certain boss mechanics.
  • (5 Unbind.png 5th unbind) 65% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up + 30% Icon Ability 1010152.png Surge of Strength for 3 minutes.
  • 5 Unbind.png With Surge, his ability effects are comparable to 210143 01.png Gala Reborn Zephyr for about 4 minutes (better for first 3 minutes, then average DPS breaks even 1 minute later).
  • 5 Unbind.png Performs best in content with low amount of buffs, such as when Icon Buff 2010011.png Curse of Nihility is present.

Cons:

  • 5 Unbind.png Quickly falls off in content that lasts 4 minutes or more, due to Surge running out. Ciella, a commonly-run endgame fight, has a tendency to last a lot longer than 4 minutes.
  • 5 Unbind.png DPS gain is diminished if there are lots of buffs flying around. Among wind, there are a lot of buff sources that can interfere.
  • 5 Unbind.png Weaker dragon form than 210143 01.png Gala Reborn Zephyr, even with Surge active

Pros:

  • 50% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up base, with an additional 45% depending on how much Icon Buff 2050004.png Energy the user has (total 95% strengh)
  • Automatically grants the user Icon Buff 2050004.png Energy every few seconds.
  • Grants Icon Buff 2050004.png Energy to the entire team after ending dragon form.

Cons:

  • Later content in the game will have the Icon Buff 2010011.png Curse of Nihility effect, which will completely nullify Icon Buff 2050004.png Energy, reducing Thor to a 50% strength dragon. This makes him weaker than 210049 01.png Cupid's 60% strength.
  • 210144 01.png Gala Reborn Jeanne is both stronger and more-consistent in her DPS boost than Thor.
  • Generally considered an unsafe long-term investment.

Pros:

Cons:

  • In shorter fights, he will be weaker to a dragon like 200017 01.png Gala Cat Sìth since her Icon Buff 2050031.png "Skillful Trickery" stacks will offer more damage.

Pros:

  • 30% Icon Buff 1020001.png HP Up + 35% Icon Buff 2010001.png Skill Haste Up.
  • Great support dragon, ideal for Icon Element Shadow.png shadow buffers and healers. HP adds bulk, strengthens heals, and strengthens Icon Buff 1020031.png Life Shields, while skill haste speeds up the charging of buffs and heal skills.
  • Dragon skill inflicts Affliction poison large icon.png Poison and grants the team a poison punisher buff, which increases damage against poisoned foes - making for a great instant source of team-wide DPS support.

Pros:

  • 180% Icon Buff 1020006.png Skill Damage Up with limited uses, called Icon Buff 2050031.png "Skillful Trickery". Stacks of Skillful Trickery can be restored with combo count or dragon transformation.
  • Extremely powerful in shorter battles.

Cons:

  • Units who cannot access Cat's dragon form, such as 110306 01 r05.png Bellina, will lose one source of stack restoration, and therefore may struggle to use Cat
  • Units who cannot build up combo fast enough between skills (such as 100005 02 r05.png Gala Alex, or 110306 01 r05.png Bellina) will also struggle to use Cat as they will use up stacks faster than they can gain them.
  • Units that prefer strength over skill damage (such as 100015 05 r05.png Gala Chelle) will get no benefit from using Cat.
  • Later content in the game will have the Icon Buff 2010011.png Curse of Nihility effect, which will completely nullify Icon Buff 2050031.png "Skillful Trickery", reducing Cat to a 0% boost.
  • Generally considered an unsafe long-term investment.

Pros:

Pros:

  • 60% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up
  • Good dragon form DPS.
  • Dragon skill has access to the status effect Affliction bog large icon.png Bog, which makes foes take 50% more damage.

Pros:

  • 60% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up
  • Dragon skill heals the team, and boosts team critical rate by 25%.

Pros:

  • 50% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up, 20% Affliction paralysis large icon.png Paralysis Punisher.
  • Great dragon form DPS.
  • Overall better DPS potential than 210049 01.png Cupid, if paralysis uptime can be maintained.

Cons:

  • Falls off in content where Affliction paralysis large icon.png Paralysis gets resisted.

Pros:

  • 55% Icon Buff 1020002.png Strength Up initially, with up to 20% additional strength (75% strength total) after 2 transformations.
  • Adventurers with frequent dragon gauge access, such as 100031 03 r05.png Alberius, can claim the additional strength quickly.

Cons:

  • Even when Chthonius' strength is at its maximum potential, many DPS units would still prefer to use 210087 01.png Shinobi.

  • Ramps in power based on the amount of dragon transformations.
  • Skills can take down crowds of enemies with ease.
  • Single resistance (Affliction stun large icon.png Stun). Also resists Affliction burn large icon.png Burn, however that is not very relevant in the content she would be used in.

Cons:

  • The free unit 100001 01 r04.png The Prince performs similarly when invested. Gala Mym's DPS is certainly better, but The Prince is not far behind.

Cons:

  • Does not have a unique dragon form, so you will need a strong Icon Element Light.png light dragon such as 210144 01.png Gala Reborn Jeanne to pair with him. Lacking a good dragon will harm his DPS significantly.

Pros:

  • Access to Icon Buff 1020031.png Life Shields, which protect the team from damage.
  • Access to Icon Ability 1010031.png Dispel.
  • Extremely helpful for auto-battle.
  • Works across elements, not just in Icon Element Shadow.png shadow.
  • Can be replaced by other healers, but luck and time is needed to obtain and build these replacements.
  • Single resistance (Affliction blindness large icon.png Blindness).

Cons:

  • Usually needs a Icon Buff 1020003.png Defense Up buffer on the team in order to perform well.
  • Some endgame content will lock elements, preventing her from being used in non-shadow teams eventually.
  • Certain endgame quests will have Icon Buff 2010011.png Curse of Nihility (CoN), which completely shuts down her Icon Buff 1020031.png Life Shields. This renders her useless in any CoN content.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Lacks burst damage.

Pros:

Cons:

  • Buff is restricted to only work on Icon Element Water.png water units - as such, cannot work on other elements.
  • Comparable to the free unit 100002 01 r04.png Elisanne, who has less defensive support but more offensive support. The free Elisanne also has dual resistances, and her buff can work on any element, not just water.
  • Poor personal DPS.

Pros:

  • Good DPS.
  • Access to the common status effect Affliction poison large icon.png Poison.
  • Has a stance system, allowing for switching play style on the fly.
  • Dual resistances (Affliction bog large icon.png Bog and Affliction freeze large icon.png Freeze).

Cons:

Pros:

Cons:

  • Buff Zones don't function well if players are unable to stand in them, due to bosses moving around a lot or boss mechanics forcing player movement. Quests with Icon Buff 2010011.png Curse of Nihility will even nullify buff zones outright.
  • Poor personal DPS.
