Authentic Force[edit]

Authentic force is used in Grandis to penetrate the defense system of monsters in Grandis. Authentic Symbols are the only source of Authentic Force. Based on your Authentic Force and required Authentic Force, your final damage is adjusted to between 5% to 125% of the original damage and monster damage will hit between 100% to 200% of its original damage (not applied to %HP attacks).

  • For every 1 Authentic Force below required, you deal 1%p lesser final damage. (Max reduction of 95%)
  • For every 2 Authentic Force above required, you deal 1%p more final damage, rounded down. (Max increase of 25%)
  • Normal damage taken is increased to 1.5x for having 1~50 Authentic Force below required, and increases to 2x if it is even lower. Normal damage taken cannot be reduced further once the force requirement is met.

Authentic Force can be obtained by equipping Authentic Symbols. You gain 10 Authentic Force per Authentic Symbol Level equipped.

Authentic Symbols[edit]

Authentic Symbols can be leveled up to give more Authentic Force by equipping duplicated Authentic Symbols. Authentic Symbols can only be obtained from daily quests. Monsters will not drop any authentic symbols.

In addition, events may give out Authentic Symbol Selector coupons to exchange for a symbol of your choice (only the ones that you have obtained a symbol from quest are allowed to be chosen)

  • Required number of symbols to level up:
  • Required mesos to level up
    • Cernium:
    • Hotel Arcs:

"floor" means rounding down.

Both symbols and mesos are needed to increase the symbol level.

You can use a lower growth symbol to combine with a higher growth symbol at no additional cost, but mesos used on the lower growth symbol are not refunded. This makes it possible to exceed the required symbol for the next level, and the excess is carried over.
