Colossus Upgrades: Which Building to Prioritize?
This section will teach you what to prioritize, how the mood works and overall mechanics of colossus in Alchemy Stars.
#1 The first thing you need to upgrade is the resource station.
The resource station ties in to your resource rate, which can be unlocked after clearing stage 1-14 of the tutorial.
Unlocking resource station will open up resource rates, which you can farm for colossus materials, nightium (currency), aurorian upgrade material, and equipment material.
Resource rates have four resource stages:
- Burning Aesthetics – clear main stage 2-12 to unlock
- White Night, Black Underbelly – clear main stage 2-5 to unlock
- Forgotten Snow – clear main stage 1-14 to unlock
- Tempering Illumina – clear main stage 4-7 to unlock
The late game will be easier to progress if you unlock this stage early.
Using carriers in the resource stage will save you time. You can use it when you need to collect items in a short time, as it doubles the consumption prism, as well as the items available.
- Pro tip: Save your carriers for bonus stages to maximize your rewards.
Leveling resource station will unlock more quests after level 2. Enhance facilities to unlock high-level quests, giving you more options to grind for your colossus items.
#2 Prism Pillars
The prism pillar can be accessed after unlocking the colossus. In Alchemy Stars, prism is stamina that you accumulate over time.
- Always collect prisms after you login at the Prism Pillars.
- Utilize Aurorians with “Prism Focus” skill, since they increase prism recovery by 20% per hour.
- The amount of prisms you can increase and the maximum storage limit can be raised by increasing the levels of the prism pillars.
- Raising the prism pillars’ level is more important than generating valuable prisms, since you can generate them more efficiently.
You can also decorate prism pillars like other rooms of the colossus.
#3 Dispatch Office
In Alchemy Stars, dispatch is known as a mission system. Dispatch can save you a bunch of again prisms or stamina with your dispatch mission.
- Characters assigned to the facility cannot be dispatched.
- Characters assigned to other rooms will not appear on the dispatch selection screen.
