Light the fires and prepare for battle!! New Cores are here and they come with a bang if you know how to Manufacture them. Cores have been around for a long time in Mobile Strike however, they have gone in and out of style as the game has evolved. Some players love Cores while others abhor them even if they may recognize the benefits that they give. However, whether you love or hate them understanding how these new cores work is imperative. If you love them so you can Manufacture them and if you hate them so you can Manufacture them painlessly.
Today we will take a look at the basics of cores and the things you need to know about the newest cores available in the Mech Dimension. In the process, we will address some commonly asked questions you may come across regarding these new cores.
Back to the Basics
Let’s start off by heading back to the basics. From knowing what cores are, to understanding the Crates you will find in your inventory, all of this information is essential. While we do have an article that covers some of these basics I also want to cover them here. However, if you need to go back and do some reading on older cores we will provide a link at the end of this article.
What are Cores?
This is the most basic of questions. However, if you are newer to the game or never really played with Cores it is one you may need to be answered. Cores are a limited time gear. Essentially we have two types of gear:
- Permanent Gear
Cores run on a timer, much like Serums. This means when that timer has been expended the Cores are gone. This timer does not start until you equip your cores, so feel free to Manufacture and put cores in a Commander Preset, however, be cautious that you do not equip that preset until you are ready for the clock to start ticking. Even if you equip and you are not actively wearing the cores the clock will continue to count down.
Permanent gear is well… permanent. This means that once you Manufacture it, you always have it. These are going to be the sets you are more used to in the Mech Dimension. While we did take a brief dive into cores in the Mech Dimension it is not something that stuck and we have not seen viable core sets in a few months now.
How do I Manufacture Cores?
One of the best ways to describe this is to think of your cores as a Serum. All of us have Manufacture Serums at some point and so we understand the basic concepts behind this. For a Core you are going to have your Core, this is kinda like your vial, and you are going to have your Attachments, these are your ingredients.
To Manufacture a core you will go to your forge select a core and then select the Attachments to go into the core. We go more in-depth in this in another article so I am not going to spend much time here today, however, as mentioned before I will make sure that you have the link to our basic Core Manufacturing article so you can go back and catch-up. I do want to be sure that we have time to discuss our newest cores today so we are going to dive into that section now.
New Mech Dimension Cores
New Mech Dimension Cores look a little different then what we are used to. We want to address some of those differences so you can understand what you are buying and what you are getting.
Understanding the Basics of New Mech Dimension Cores
In order to get the most out of these new cores, you must first understand what makes them different. When we look at cores what we are used to seeing is cores that range in quality from Basic to Legendary. This means grey, white, green, blue, purple, gold. However, new cores also come with a grade which can range from A to F.
This means that you can have two cores of the same quality with different stats because they have different grades. So now we not only have to consider quality but grade. Let’s take an even closer look at this
You can have a Legendary quality core at any grade from A to F (While I listed E in the table below I have yet to actually see any Grade E items), however, your stats will be lower at grade F than Level A. In order to help understand this more check out the images below.
Both of these cores are Inferior Quality, however, one is Grade F and one is Grade D. The Grade D Core is going to give higher stats than the Grade F because it is a higher grade. While you can combine your cores to a higher Quality we have not yet seen anything indicating the ability to combine lower grades to higher grades.
Let’s take a look at New Core Crates
When we look at Crates in packs we have two types:
- Rare September 2020 Series Cores and Components Crates
- Legendary September 2020 Series Cores and Components Crates
Many of the initial packs had PYO so you could pick between what troop type focus you wanted to get. It is important to note that the Crate levels do not mean that you will be getting Rare or Legendary quality cores and Attachments.
If you read the description on the Rare Crates below you will see that the level of the Crates determines the Grade of cores you will be getting. So for Rare Crates, I have a chance to obtain Cores Grade B-F or Attachments Grades C-F. Legendary Crates will give the opportunity to obtain cores or Attachments that are of higher grades but they may still be of low quality and need to be combined to the highest quality.
Do I Need a Recipe?
Yes and No. It is important to understand the principle of Grades and Quality when it comes to these new cores but when it comes to Manufacturing them it is much simpler than cores of old. In order to Manufacture these cores, you will need Metals from grade A-F at Legendary Quality the Metals will give you higher stats. You will also need a Smart Chip. I know that all of this sounds confusing so I created a video for all of you to help really walk you through the process. However, for now, you need to know that different color Metals go with different cores.
Green Metals= Infantry Attack
Red Metals= Tactical Attack
Blue Metals= Armored Vehicle Attack
You will want to pair the Metals with the core you are Manufacturing and a Smart Chip to get the best results. While the ability to mix and match is possible you will see better results by sticking to one type.
When you manufacture your core with all the correct attachments and the Smart Chip you will receive an Extra Bonus when you are done crafting that you would not have gotten without mixing and matching. Make sure you take a chance to watch our video covering manufacturing and take a look at the Infantry Core that we manufactured and the final results from that.
Understanding How to Use New Mech Dimension Cores Effectively
You Manufacture your new Mech Dimension Core and now you want to use it? Well, it is important to understand how to use it correctly. It can be tempting to pair Tactical, Armored Vehicle, and infantry together so you get more rounded stats. However, for a long time now there has been a continued focus on type stats in the Mech Dimension.
To use your new Core most effectively you will want to use a type core with the correct Mech and set up. For example, most leads now are running their Inferno Mech because it has the highest levels. This comes with an infantry focus. You will want to pair your Infantry core with your Inferno Mech, Infantry Gems, and Infantry Banners, and Serums. Any infantry boost in your empire should be utilized with this setup. By doing this you will hit harder than if you tried to do a mixed march with a mixed core set.
