Choice File

From SMT: Dx2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Choice File is a special summoning resource that lets the user choose a 5★ demon (+ their archetype/color) from a specific lineup, which may include both fusible and non-fusible demons.

Choice Files are generally given out through events or the Shop, but some are available permanently, such as the 2nd anniversary choice file in Comeback Missions.

Anniversary Files

Below is an availability chart for the Special, 2nd anniv, and 3rd anniv choice files.

"X" means the demon is available to choose, while "-" means it is not available.

Deciding what to summon

Being able to choose a unit is extremely valuable in a Gacha game, so you should be very careful about what you select from a Choice File.

Some guidelines:

  • If at all possible, try to AVOID choosing a fusible demon. You could just farm mag and make them later - the choice is better spent on a non-fusible demon that may be difficult to get otherwise.
  • Choosing a good, non-fusible demon that you don't already have should be the highest priority.
  • If none of the non-fusibles catch your interest, or if you just already have all of them, then pick a duplicate that can help with Spirit Merge paneling. Make sure that the demon you choose actually has good panels, though.
    • If going this route, pick a color that has a good gacha skill, and use a Blank Genome on the gacha skill before spiritizing the demon. This gets you more value from your summon.
  • If you're actively summoning on a banner, wait until AFTER you're done there, just in case you pull something that you would've otherwise selected from the choice file. This then lets you pick something else from your choice file.

Once you've decided who you want, check the Tier List for which archetype colors perform best.

Common case: Special Choice File (2.5 Anniv)

Special choice file (2.5 anniv)

This file is the one most-frequently given-out through events, so it's common for people to make decisions based on this one.

Demons

The decision process for this file can be simplified as follows:

  • If you don't have an ailment-immune cleanser, you should get Purple Purple Daisoujou.jpg Daisoujou.
  • Otherwise, you should get one of the following if you don't have them yet (in order of highest-to-lowest priority):
    • Yoshitsune.jpg Yoshitsune (pick Red Red or Yellow Yellow, then shift to Purple Purple)
    • Alice.jpg Alice (pick Teal Teal, then shift to Purple Purple)
    • Anat.jpg Anat (pick Red Red or Yellow Yellow, then shift to Purple Purple)
    • Baal.jpg Baal (pick Red Red or Yellow Yellow, then shift to Purple Purple)
    • Mot.jpg Mot (pick Yellow Yellow, then shift to Purple Purple)

Skills

If you're mainly looking for good gacha skills:

2nd Anniv. Choice File

2nd anniv choice file

Similar logic to the 2.5 file, but you CANNOT pick the following demons from this file:

3rd Anniv. Choice File

3rd anniv choice file

Similar logic to the 2.5 file, with the following notable additions:

Demons

Good demons to pick (in order of highest-to-lowest priority):

  • Masakado.jpg Masakado (top priority, above Yoshitsune) (pick Purple Purple)
  • Tokisada.jpg Tokisada (around Anat or Baal's priority) (pick Yellow Yellow, then shift to Purple Purple)

Skills

Regarding gacha skills, Icon Critical.png Auto-Rebellion from Yellow Yellow Marici.jpg Marici or Yellow Yellow Tokisada.jpg Tokisada is extremely valuable for harvesting and transferring to Panel 3 Zaou-Gongen.jpg Zaou-Gongen.

  • For this reason it's highly recommended to pick Yellow Tokisada from this file, netting you this skill as well as a strong demon (color-wise Tokisada prefers Purple Purple, but you can just shift his color later).

Notable gacha skills:

Update Choice File

Update choice file

Compared to the 3rd anniv file, Flauros.jpg Flauros is now available.

  • Flauros is good for Democalypse, but probably isn't worth picking, since the file has several more-important options.

Notable gacha skills:

5th Anniv Special Choice File

5th anniv special choice file

Demons

Compared to the Update Choice File, this adds Gabriel.jpg Gabriel, Uriel.jpg Uriel, and Raphael.jpg Raphael.

  • These three are core to the Archangels team archetype. Of the three, Gabriel is the most important, followed by Uriel, and Raphael is in last place.
  • Archangels has largely fallen off in PvP, so these demons' main use is for Democalypse (Elec Elec for Gabriel, Fire Fire for Uriel, Force Force for Raphael, and Light Light for all three). Consider picking them if you need some more damage in those elements.
  • If you don't have the high-priority picks mentioned earlier though, those are more important than the archangels.
