CrossCode Wiki

In CrossWorlds, various stats affect the performance of a Seeker in combat. Within the game, stats are categorized into parameters, which directly affect combat, and modifiers, which affect more specific conditions and actions.

The value of a stat can be changed through either leveling up, using equipment, or activating circuits and switching between element modes. While in a elemental mode besides Neutral, 50% of Neutral circuit effects is combined with the current element's effects, leading elemental modes to generally be more powerful than Neutral mode. In addition, most consumables provide temporary buffs that affect stats during combat.

The average core stats used to balance the enemies can be found in this document.

Parameters[ | ]

These stats exist at all times during the game and are the most crucial for improving combat performance. The first four generally increase throughout the game via leveling up, obtaining better equipment, activating circuits, and eating consumables. The second four may increase or decrease depending on equipment, circuits, and consumables.

HP-Icon Max HP[ | ]

Maximum amount of Health Points. Determines the damage you can survive and the efficiency of regeneration.
  • Abbrieviated as MAXHP.
  • Any change affects your current HP by the same amount.

Atk-Icon Attack[ | ]

Increases the damage of your attacks. The higher the number, the more damage can be inflicted.
  • Abbrieviated as ATK.
  • Excludes non-attack damage such as % health damage and Pin Body.

Def-Icon Defense[ | ]

Reduces the damage you take from hostile attacks and increases the power of your shield.
  • Abbrieviated as DEF.
  • Improves both your shield's effectiveness and durability before breaking.

Foc-Icon Focus[ | ]

Determines the probability of critical hits, your SP gain, status conditions rate and invincibility while dashing.
  • Abbreviated as FOC.
Affects a bunch of "extra" stuff, each compared against the Focus of the enemy in question:
  • Increases chance of landing and decreases chance of receiving critical hits
  • Increases speed of inflicting and decreases speed of receiving status conditions
  • Extends duration of invincibility at the start of each dash
  • Improves all types of SP gain

Icon-Resist-Heat Heat Resistance[ | ]

Resistance against the heat element. The higher the number the less damage you take from heat attacks.

Icon-Resist-Cold Cold Resistance[ | ]

Resistance against the cold element. The higher the number the less damage you take from cold attacks.

Icon-Resist-Shock Shock Resistance[ | ]

Resistance against the shock element. The higher the number the less damage you take from shock attacks.

Icon-Resist-Wave Wave Resistance[ | ]

Resistance against the wave element. The higher the number the less damage you take from wave attacks.

Modifiers[ | ]

For the most part the effects of these stats apply to specific actions and conditions. They come and go based on equipment, circuits, and a handful of consumables, and may increase or decrease to achieve an intended overall effect.

Icon-Modifier-Appetite Appetite[ | ]

Increases numbers of available buff slots. Every step of 100 unlocks another one.
Even though you can get this modifier from Neutral mode, it remains at 100% effectiveness in all modes.

Icon-Modifier-Assault Assault[ | ]

Fires additional projectiles when using melee attacks with a fraction of the attacks strength.
  • This appears as wavy projectiles reaching just beyond regular melee range in random forward directions.
  • They follow slightly behind each attack, so knocking enemies back can put them out of range.
  • Assault starts with just one projectile, but if the damage would ever exceed around 25% of your regular attack damage, it divides into a second projectile, and a third at 50% and a fourth at 75% and so on. Since the final spin hits twice, the projectile adds the damage of both hits, and may cause it to divide further.

Icon-Modifier-Avenger Avenger[ | ]

Restores SP on guard based on the power of the attack. Double that for a perfect guard.

Icon-Modifier-Balance Balance[ | ]

Slows down Overload while using an element.

Icon-Modifier-Bastion Bastion[ | ]

Allows to guard against attacks from the side. Activate twice to shield attacks from above too.
  • The two instances of this modifier are only found in Cold's Guard Circuit path, but since you cannot get Fimbulvetr's Bastion without the first Bastion in the path, they are effectively separate.
  • There are still some attacks that interrupt your shield.
  • Increased by circuit nodes: +2 in Cold

Icon-Modifier-Berserker Berserker[ | ]

Increases damage dealt when at critical HP. (Below 33% of Max HP)
You can tell this is active when your HP bar and number turn red.

Increase damage on enemies that are in stunned, weak or in break state.

Icon-Modifier-Brawler Brawler[ | ]

Increases damage done by close combat attacks, including Melee Combat Arts.

Increases knockback from charged shots on enemies.
Also affects Ball of Steel and Fae Round.

Icon-Modifier-Bullseye Bullseye[ | ]

Increases critical hit damage.

Icon-Modifier-Burn-Guard Burn Guard[ | ]

Increases the resistance against the Burn Condition and reduces its effect. Burn causes damage over time, depending on the MaxHP of the victim.

Icon-Modifier-Burn-Rush Burn Rush[ | ]

Increases the speed of inflicting the Burn Condition and its effect. Burn causes damage over time, depending on the MaxHP of the victim.
  • Increased by circuit nodes: +60% in Heat

Icon-Modifier-Chill-Guard Chill Guard[ | ]

Icon-Modifier-Ice-Skater Ice Skater[ | ]

Makes it possible to normally run and perform actions on ice without slipping.

Icon-Modifier-Iron-Stance Iron Stance[ | ]

Increases knockback resistance to weak attacks, depending on your MaxHP.
  • This behaves as a binary true/false check; if an attack's final damage is less than the percentage of your Max HP, the knockback is nullified. Reducing that damage with more Defense and elemental resistance helps shrug off stronger attacks.
  • Since knockback causes interruption, Iron Stance helps you continue with what you would like to do unimpeded.

Icon-Modifier-Item-Booster Item Booster[ | ]

Increases the effect of healing items and duration of buff items.

Icon-Modifier-Jolt-Guard Jolt Guard[ | ]

Increases the resistance against the Jolt Condition and reduces its effect. Jolt causes damage and stuns in short intervals.

Icon-Modifier-Jolt-Rush Jolt Rush[ | ]

Icon-Modifier-Leaf-Bracer Leaf Bracer[ | ]

Using Items cannot be stopped by any attacks. However you can still suffer damage.

Icon-Modifier-Legwork Legwork[ | ]

Increases your movement speed while aiming.
  • Throwing balls stops Lea momentarily, so this mainly applies to charging up shots.
  • Maximum Legwork allows for moving significantly faster than standard running speed.

Icon-Modifier-Lucky-Lucky Lucky Lucky[ | ]

Increases drop rate for items from enemies and environmental objects.

Icon-Modifier-Mark-Guard Mark Guard[ | ]

Increases the resistance against the Mark Condition and reduces its effect. Mark increases the received ranged damage by 50%.

Interrupt your dashes by attacking to guarantee you get this effect.

Icon-Modifier-Nimble-Feet Nimble Feet[ | ]

Makes it possible to freely walk on the sticky webs created by the Aranetarda and sub-species.
  • Increased by leg gear: LV62Old GetaOld Geta (+1)

Icon-Modifier-Once-More Once More[ | ]

Survive exactly one attack that would normally kill you.
  • How this works is any damage that would kill you leaves you in critical mode instead, but while in critical mode any damage kills you like usual.
  • The game also pauses for a moment for you to reassess your approach.
  • This is quite a bit better than you may expect by the above in-game description, since the trigger resets every time you leave critical mode. Pretty insane when alternated with Wave's regeneration.
  • Increased by circuit nodes: +1 in Heat

Icon-Modifier-Pin-Body Pin Body[ | ]

Damages enemies that hit your shield, based on the absorbed damage and defense.
  • You can only damage for as much as you block, so try to block all damage, especially with perfect guards.
  • If you reduce your Focus, enemies will crit you more; if you still block all this damage they take all the more.

Elemental resistance calculation[ | ]

Elemental resistances from equipment and circuits are calculated separately and applied to incoming damage consecutively, rather than added into a single modifier. Therefore, your net resistance shown in the Status menu is calculated as follows:

  • NetRes = 100% - (100% - EquipRes) * (100% - SkillRes)
  • rounded to the nearest whole, where EquipRes and SkillRes are given as whole percentages, and
  • EquipRes = Elemental resistance from equipment.
  • SkillRes = Elemental resistance from circuits. The -50% resistance modifier from being in the opposite elemental mode is included here.

The damage you take is calculated as follows:

  • TakenDamage = AttemptedDamage * (1 - EquipRes) * (1 - SkillRes)
  • where EquipRes and SkillRes are given as decimal fractions.
  • or also TakenDamage = AttemptedDamage * (1 - EquipRes - SkillRes + (EquipRes * SkillRes))
  • also with EquipRes and SkillRes given as decimal fractions.

For example, having 50% Heat resistance from equipment and 30% from circuits gives a total of 65% Heat resistance, not 80%. As a consequence, it's not possible to reach 100% effective elemental resistance with a combination of circuit and equipment resistance sources; you would need 100% solely from circuits or from equipment, neither of which is possible.
