Cores have arrived in the Mech Dimension and players are very excited to see these, however, to some players Cores are new and they are not familiar with how to Manufacture them without the use of the VIP Manufacturing system. In this article, we are going to break down some of the basics that may have been forgotten and then take a closer look at the Cores that are being offered in the Mech War Dimension. In a later article, we will discuss bonuses and recipes that are offered by cores.
Manufacturing Cores 101
When Manufacturing cores think of it as cooking soup. You have your pot (your core) inside your pot you are going to put your different ingredients (your Attachments). When you are making this you have to consider how your ingredients will mix. Your soup cannot create something that was not already there. Therefore, the stats in your Attachments are important to consider before just tossing everything in the pot. For example, if you are using a core with Tactical Attack Stats it will be most beneficial to use attachments that also have tactical attack stats to build on the strength of the already existing core. It is similar to when you are crafting serums in that way. When you pick ingredients for your Vial you want to be sure they complement the already existing stats on the Vial.
When you enter your Armory you will go to Manufacture core equipment. Here you will first encounter your cores.
Below the cores tab are six subdivisions of types of cores. Each type represents an equipment slot. The general guidelines for each slot are:
Next, let’s look at the Attachments tab. Note that the “Attachments” tab is highlighted, signifying that it is active.
There are seven subdivisions under the Attachments tab. They are listed below with a brief description.
First up the Equipment Bag: All Bonuses
This sub-tab is a catch-all. It gives access to all Attachments available in your Armory inventory.
The subsequent tabs subdivide the Attachments based on their characteristics. These guidelines apply to each of the next five sub-tabs: If the specific characteristic appears in the piece in any amount, it will be included under that tab. This means that any piece, regardless of troop type or sub-type, will be included under a specific sub-tab if it possesses that characteristic. It also means that a single piece might be included under multiple sub-tabs. Continuing from left to right, these sub-tabs are as follows:
Second, The Bullet: Attack
Attachments with attack stats, regardless of type, can be found under this sub-tab. This includes any piece with Troop, Infantry, Tactical, or Armored Vehicle Attack
Third, Red Cross: Health
Fourth, The Backpack: Defense
Fifth, Troop: Attack, Defense, Health, Debuffs
This sub-tab is slightly different. It characterizes each piece based on the troop sub-type. Any piece with any characteristic of that troop sub-type will be included. For example, infantry is the first troop type listed. All Attachments with Infantry Attack, Defense, or Health can be found here. It will also include all Attachments with Infantry Attack, Defense, or Health Debuff.
Sixth, Coins and Money: Hero Attack and March Speed
Finally, Core Set Attachments
This sub-tab contains each of the Attachments relevant to creating Core Sets. Again, they are grouped by a specific set. The core sets are grouped with the oldest released set at the top and get progressively newer (by release date) as you scroll down.
In the Mech War Dimension, the most important research you will encounter at this time for cores is the Manufacturing Research Tree. This tree does not open until you reach at least Research Facility 20 and as you go further in the research you need to progressively increase the level of your Research Facility to access more of this research.
The research within this tree that is relevant to cores includes:
- Helm Stat Multiplier
- Armor Stat Multiplier
- Feet Stat Multiplier
- Weapon Stat Multiplier
- Accessory Stat Multiplier
- Manufacturing Cost Reduction
- Manufacturing Luck
- Manufacturing Speed
- Special Mod Slot Unlocks
Manufacturing your Core
Let’s get into how to Manufacture the actual core. Unless you have been playing Mobile Strike for a long time this may be new to you. Many players never Manufactured cores or if you did, you Manufactured using VIP Manufacture and are not familiar with how to Manufacture from the base up.
A common question we hear people asking is what’s a good recipe? However, you can build your own and try out different combinations to get the best stats possible for you. For more information on how to build your gear stats be sure to check out this article, How to pick the right gear for you. Currently, we are covering just the basics of core manufacturing but we will go into recipes with secret bonuses later on.
Step 1: Go to your Armory
First, Click on your Armory
Second, Click on “Manufacture” and then “Core Equipment”.
Then this will open you to your Cores Inventory.
Once you know what stats you are aiming to maximize, pick the core and Attachments that have the highest bonuses for your target stats.
At the bottom left of your screen, you will see a button that says “Cores Stats”.
Click on this button to bring up each stat for all the cores you have.
As you can see, each item that is available for the weapon slot is shown. If you scroll down you can see the others you have. Clicking one of the other categories on the ribbon will give you different choices. First, choose the core you would like to use based on the stats. Stats are key to getting the specific items you want. Whatever you chose, will be your foundation core. Then, click the Add button to add it to the queue.
Next, click the Attachments tab.
Click the Attachments stats button and use the same process. First, go through the categories, then scroll through the Attachments, and add your Attachments. You can add up to six Attachments depending on how many slots you have open. This can increase your gear’s stats enormously!
Also note, that you can add level 6 Attachments to any level of core, the core is the foundation and the Attachments enhance the core. You can combine a level 4 core with level 6 Attachments for better stats. Although just because you use level 6 Attachments does not change the core to legendary, it stays at the same level even if the Attachments are higher.
You can easily delete and place a piece of core back into your inventory to chose a different one if needed.
Check your Stats
Before you Manufacture, be sure to check the stats you will be getting (this is an approximation) to make sure it is what you want. By doing this you can change the build over and over until you get something that will fit for you. You can do this by clicking on the core that is in the Armory (for the sake of an example we just threw together something).
Manufacture Your Core
So let’s say you have a core and three Attachments queued. First, at the top of the screen, you will see all the items ready. Next, at the bottom of the screen, you see three buttons: Attachments stats or core stats depending on the screen you were last in, an instant Manufacture button, and a Manufacture button to use silver to Manufacture your piece. Either gold or silver can be clicked to Manufacture, it is your choice.
Next, speedups are used to reduce Manufacturing time. Finally, when completed, you see your core and stats and you get an in-game email, with a link to the core you created. It will show you the name and quality of the core, and the stats it contains after combining.
Mech Cores for Noobs
To even begin crafting cores in the Mech dimension, you must first unlock the various levels. Previously with cores this was done with research. So when you go to craft a core if you have not unlocked that level it will tell you that you need to research. However, this is untrue. You can find the unlocks you need in packs and they will look like this:
There is an unlock for every level from 1 to 6. Without these unlocks you cannot craft the different levels of cores. We will be diving more into cores and different recipes in a later article, however, hopefully, this has helped with the basics of core manufacturing in the mech dimension.
