Gley Reactor Components

Reactors can be customized with different attributes such as skill power, cooldown reduction, and specific attribute enhancements. For Glay, a reactor that enhances skill power, particularly for dimension and non-attribute skills, is highly beneficial.

For more information about Gley's skills, strategies, and battlefield positioning, please read - the Gley User Guide.

Materialized Phase Reactor  
This reactor focuses on enhancing the dimensional and non-attribute skill power of a character.

Gley Reactor - U4GM

Key Attributes for Reactor  
1. Skill Power Boosts:  
- Non-Attribute Skill Power: Enhances the power of Glay's non-attribute skills. This is particularly useful for her abilities like Massacre, which rely heavily on skill power for damage output.  
- Dimension Skill Power: Increases the effectiveness of dimensional skills. For Glay, this could enhance specific abilities that deal damage based on dimensional attributes.

2. Cooldown Reduction:  
- Is essential for Glay to maintain high uptime on her abilities, especially her crucial skills like Increased Sensory for Infinite ammo and Life Siphon for survival and damage mitigation.

3. Duration Increase:  
- Increasing the duration of effects like buffs from her abilities can be critical. This ensures that she can sustain her enhanced states longer, such as Frenzy mode’s damage boost or the defensive buffs from her normal mode.

The Annihilation set is designed to provide a significant damage boost at the cost of reduced MP recovery, with an added survivability mechanic when at low health. This set can be particularly effective for players who like to play aggressively or for characters who can manage their HP and MP efficiently.

  • The Auxiliary Power piece is the only one that can have HP as a stat
  • The Memory piece is the only one that can have DEF as a sub-stat
  • Other pieces may have elemental resistances as their best defensive stats.

Farming for the perfect stats on Annihilation set pieces can be challenging.

It is recommended to use Nimble Fingers and Skill Extension modules, which can greatly optimize the efficiency of Bunny's skill use and facilitate the rapid upgrade of the character. You can also try Polygenic Antibody, lncreased HP, and lncreased DEF. This can better enhance the character's defense and increase the chance of survival on the battlefield, especially for characters like Bunny who have low defense. It is important to survive in battle.

After the module capacity is increased, the following modules are recommended:

  • Shock punch
  • Power increase
  • Technician
  • Hp amplification
  • Mp collector

Status effect modules only affect a weapon with the status on it (eg toxic/chill/etc) and can only be boosted by a toxic module booster.

TFD Descendant Weapon Best Mod Guide - U4GM

Another reason to choose Tamer is that its ammunition is very easy to obtain. It uses white ammunition, which is the most frequently dropped ammunition in the game, followed by green and orange. The most difficult to obtain is purple ammunition. When choosing a weapon, one needs to consider this factor.


Ajax Best Weapons and Enhanced Mods

The following Ajax build enables players to easily complete TFD Void Intercept Boost. Facing different bosses, you need to replace the corresponding elemental modules, and the Malachite slot is given priority.

- This is particularly beneficial for Ajax as it enhances skill duration, which is useful for extending the effects of his abilities.  
- It also boosts firearm damage proportional to his maximum HP, which synergizes well with his build that focuses on high HP for both defense and offensive power.

Affixes on Components  
- Fire Resistance and Module Drop Rate Increase: These enhance Ajax's survivability against fire-based attacks and improve the efficiency of his farming capabilities.  
- Shell Resistance and Max MP: Important for boosting his resistance against specific attacks and increasing his mana pool to allow for more frequent skill usage.  
- Defense and Electric Resistance: These enhance his overall durability and resilience against electric attacks, crucial for facing enemies with this damage type.  
- Equipment Drop Rate Increase and Toxin Resistance: These substats not only make him more resistant to toxins but also increase the likelihood of obtaining better equipment from battles.

Resistance Coverage  
- Ajax's components cover a broad range of resistances including toxic, electric, chill, and fire. This comprehensive coverage is designed to ensure he can remain effective and durable across various enemy types and environmental hazards.

The advantages of Annihilation Set  
1. One of the primary benefits of the Annihilation Set is the increased duration of skills. This is particularly advantageous for Ajax, as it allows his defensive and offensive skills, like the Orbit Barrier and Hypercube, to last longer in combat, providing sustained support and damage over time.

2. The set enhances Ajax’s firearm attack by adding extra damage that scales with his maximum HP. This feature synergizes exceptionally well with Ajax’s build, which emphasizes high HP for increased survivability. It makes him more effective in taking down bosses and tougher enemies, as his damage output increases with his tankiness.

3. The Annihilation Set supports Ajax’s ability to switch between roles—whether he needs to be more offensive or defensive in various gameplay situations. This flexibility is crucial in team settings and when facing different types of enemies, ensuring that Ajax can adapt to the needs of the fight.

4. When paired with specific weapons, reactors, and other components, the Annihilation Set can unlock additional synergistic effects.

5. The set may also include secondary benefits that assist in farming efficiency, such as increased drop rates for equipment or enhancements that improve Ajax’s capacity to handle multiple enemies.

Temar Build for Ajax  
The build shifts from a critical hit focus to a weak point focus, This approach is fundamentally better for maximizing damage output in high-stakes battles.

Module synergy  
1. Weak Point Detection: Enhances Ajax’s ability to identify and target the weak points of enemies, increasing damage dealt to these critical areas.

2. Action and Reaction Rifling: Possibly increases the damage or impact of firing after performing certain actions, like dodging or using other skills.  

3. Weak Point Sight: Further amplifies the effectiveness of attacks on weak points, likely by increasing accuracy or damage.

Stat Priorities on the Weapon  
1. Firearm Attack: Primary stat focus, enhancing the basic attack damage output.  
2. Weak Point: Specialized stat focus, enhancing damage against specific vulnerable spots on enemies.  
3. Elemental Damage (Optional): Depending on the enemy's weaknesses, different elemental modules can be used, and modules with Malachite are given priority.

For players who focus on high-level boss battles, Ajax's Tamer build is a good choice, It is optimized for boss fights, where targeting weak points can significantly decrease the battle duration and increase efficiency, focusing on precise, powerful strikes.

Materialized Mechanic Reactor

TFD Descendant Weapon Best Mod Guide - U4GM

- This reactor is tailored to enhance Ajax’s damage and skill usage. It includes bonuses for non-attribute skill power and reduces skill cooldowns, enabling more frequent use of his abilities.  
- It's ideally configured to amplify Ajax's technical skills, which are significant for his role as both a damage dealer and support character.  
- Prioritize stats such as tech power, non-attribute skill bonuses, and cooldown reduction.

Stat Prioritization  
Defense = HP > Firearm Attack > Skill Power

Gold and Kper fragments

Enhancing modules requires you to have a lot of gold and fragments, which can be dropped by enemies or obtained by dismantling modified parts. Dismantle all duplicate modules so that you have space to store new loot.

Kingston Mission is recommended for getting a lot of gold. Kper fragments can be obtained through Albion Mission, but here I recommend Large Nuclear Reactor Mission in Sterile Land, which is the best place to get Kper fragments and it is also the best XP farm. You can also think of it as the best loot cave. It is recommended to complete it alone so that you can get the most materials to enhance attack power.

Large Nuclear Reactor Mission  
TFD Descendant Weapon Best Mod Guide - U4GM

Just teleport to the outpost and head to the specified location in the picture. The mission is very simple and you can complete it alone. Not only will the enemies drop Kyper fragments, but you can also get fragments by dismantling modules.

For example, Hawkeye Module, you can dismantle it to get fragments, which can be converted into reactor modules.

The materials you get here can be stacked up. After reaching a certain amount, you can make components such as Phase Exchanger, which are key components for upgrading weapon levels and can better enhance weapon DPS.
