Similar to Stars for Characters, Mod Dots or Rarities (attributed here using *) relate to a very general strength of the mod and also gating for the mod’s max stats. A 5* mod is “stronger” than a 2* mod in roughly the same way a 5* character is “stronger” than a 2* character. A 2* mod and a 5* mod could end up with the same listed primary and secondary stats, but the totals for the 5* mod will be much higher at every level than for the 2* mod.
Unlike Character Stars, however, Mod Dots are static. A 1* mod is always going to be a 1* mod and there is no way to change a 1* into a 5* mod.
Like characters, mods can be levelled, but only between Levels 1 – 15. All mods, farmed or purchased, start out at Level 1.
Mods are levelled or upgraded using credits. Mods can be upgraded by small increments or they can be upgraded to specified levels at once using larger increments of credits. The costs to upgrade increase logarithmically, as with characters, meaning it costs more credits to upgrade to the higher levels.
Different mod rarities also have different costs to level:
|Rarity||Total Lvl 15 Cost|
As mods are upgraded, the primary stat will increase, a secondary stat will either get added or increase, and the mod will change colors depending the number of secondary stats shown. This is reviewed in greater detail in the Colors/Qualities section.
The below table provides the individual level upgrade costs by Mod Rarity:
|Level||1* Level Cost||2* Level Cost||3* Level Cost||4* Level Cost||5* Level Cost||Level Action|
|3||750||1500||2500||5250||6750||Secondary Addition/Increase; Turns Green|
|6||1125||2250||3750||5250||9000||Secondary Addition/Increase; Turns Blue|
|9||1125||2250||5000||8700||15700||Secondary Addition/Increase; Turns Purple|
|12||1800||3750||17500||28000||54000||Secondary Addition/Increase; Turns Gold|
|15||8200||16500||50000||91000||177800||Primary Increase; Max Level|
While mods are free to assign to a character, all mods, regardless of level, incur a cost to remove depending on the mod rarity:
