Shard Farm Priority[]

This page contains farm priority lists categorized from Should to Niche/Filler Priority farm :

  • Should Farm
Those are Units that any Player should farm regardless of if he/she owns them or not!.
  • Useful Farm
Those Units are a addition to the Should Farm Units to fill out players' rosters for any kind of Content.

  • Niche/Filler Farm
The Units listed here are units can be farmed occasionally when a 2x HQ week is happening.


General advice[]

  • To farm some Units you need to finish the according Babel Chronicles Chapters.
  • Any unit that has a 1/day Farm of some sort should be farmed regardless of what is written in the list.
  • You should prioritize using the Soul Port feature to focus on farming shards for good limited units that do not have any form of permanent shard farm over 1/day units.
  • Its advised to farm at least 4 units of each Element and aim for around 30 units per day (doesn't include 1/day Farm units).
  • In addition to the list please check the Recommended Free Units page for additional Units.
  • Deprioritizing is a good idea if AP is tight for any reason (mostly because of Coin Shop Events, etc.). During 2x HQ weeks, it's a good idea to give priority to more units.
  • For more info on the separate Units, please check the Tier list
  • If questions arise, please feel free to ask in Discord in the #ac_questions Channel.

Changelog[]

Date Unit Changes Reasons
2.11.2021 Ramses Ramses Added to Useful Farm A strong and fairly cheap PvE unit thanks to his recent JE+ and Halloween Memento + VCR, with good, consistent damage and large, albeit unique, AoEs.
Courage Courage Added to Niche/Filler Farm While Courage herself, be it her Kit ,Mementos or even her Vision Clear Gear, hasn't changed, her recent Master Ability (+3 Range is one of the stats she gains) introduction pushed her up into one of the better units to have in Roster, as the range helps with clearing Stages or Debuffing from range
Ankh Ankh Should Farm -> Useful Farm Ankh was and remains a strong Water unit for many types of content, sporting good stats and fitting into the very underpopulated category of Water Pierce, but he wants his time-limited J+ to reach his full potential and now faces some PvE competition in the form of free unit D'Artagnan.
Balt Balt Should Farm -> Useful Farm While Balt is a decent unit as of lately he hasnt gotten any signifcant updates and as such his competiotion against other units he became less useful. While that is true he still has a lot of usage and his 6/day farm him makes him very attractive for a lot of new people
Cheryl Cheryl Should Farm -> Useful Farm
Leoniaz Leoniaz Should Farm -> Useful Farm Leoniaz is one of the strongest normal pool Wind attackers with her J+ and faces little competition as Wind Pierce. The only downside is she is slightly on the slower side, having non permanent J+, and DPS units can be kind of replaced depending on a player's roster.
Nina Nina Should Farm -> Useful Farm Though Nina remains an extremely strong Magic nuker, particularly against Dark enemies, she faces competition from other Magic nukers (e.g. Vier). Additionally, she needs her limited Christmas Memento to reach her full potential and takes a long time to build (being a Babel Limited).
Noah Noah Should Farm -> Useful Farm Noah is a strong Fire mage, can buff other Fire units' damage by a significant amount, and benefits greatly from her free summer Memento + VCR, but needs her time-limited J+ to be good and competes with several other strong Fire Magic units.
Othima Othima Should Farm -> Useful Farm Othima's recent J++ improved both his kit as well as his base stats and makes him quite solid for general PvE content, but he doesn't quite reach the top of Water Magic and he's mainly just mediocre without his J++, which (being a Holy Guard J++) is somewhat difficult to acquire, especially for newer players who haven't invested in him.
Ravina Ravina Should Farm -> Useful Farm Although Ravina might be one of the strongest missile DPS unit out there, she depends on her j+, which is seasonal and reruns sometimes only once a year. In addition to that, she kinda wants her limited memento's VCR to reach her max potential.
Setsuna Setsuna Should Farm -> Useful Farm Setsuna doesn't quite reach the damage numbers of more recent (limited) Wind Slash units (though she does come close), but is still a strong Wind attacker/nuker (as wel as one of the cheapest).
Suzuka Suzuka Should Farm -> Useful Farm Though Suzuka is still one of the best Light nukers around thanks to her limited summer Memento + VCR, she doesn't quite have the utility of other Light units (e.g. Chloe, Spica) in general PvE content.
Ange Ange Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Although her Debuff is handy and stacks with Chihaya's, she is viable at low level and buyable from shop. The need for slash res down stacking also comes more in the later game
Daisy Daisy Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm
Eve Eve Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm
Reimei Reimei Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Reimei lacks a compelling reason to be used over other, stronger Fire Slash attackers (e.g. Vettel, Ragnarok), though he does enjoy the advantage of being fairly easy to build thanks to being normal pool + his White Day challenge board.
Seida Seida Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Seida is a solid Wind Missile unit attacker, but suffers from a very bland kit compared to other Wind Missile units, a problem only exacerbated by the high likelihood of Tina J3 arriving sometime in the near future. Seida is likely to receive a J++ in the coming months, but it is not so strong as to make farming Seida a high priority.
Wilhelm Wilhelm Useful Farm -> Removed Being a babel limited makes it difficult to farm Wilhelm to usefulness. His kit is niche, and he could also be used as quick missile debuffer, but it might not warrant the effort to farm and transmute.
Anastasia Anastasia Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed although she could be useful unit at certain situations, Zahar (and Dias) can cover the need of her in most cases
Jin Jin Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed Jin simply can't keep up damage-wise, especially within the stacked subcategory that is Dark Magic, and lacks utility outside of his mediocre Elemental res debuffs.
Klima Klima Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed Although she is still a solid unit, diviners are not very often demanded in contents outside of occasional raids.
Laila Laila Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed Laila might have a niche kit as trickster, which could be useful at times, but it is rarely used. As thunder mage, Vier being a normal pool (albeit only 1/day farm) totally outclassed her.
Lamia Lamia Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed As a 4* unit, players will most likely have enough dupe/needing not much farm in case they need Lamia
Shayna Shayna Niche/Filler Farm -> Removed Shayna's upcoming j+ according to JP history will offer 1000 shards in the event shop. Thus needing less/not much farm
27.8.2021 Monzein Monzein Added to Useful Farm Monzein with his J++ has the utility of not only doing damage, but also tank with his bulky stat and taunt mechanic. Considering taunt tanking is locked behind harder-to-obtain units (e.g. Naofumi), Monzein is very solid addition to the team
Albea Albea Added to Niche/Filler Farm In an element crowded by many limited monsters, Albea is a missile unit that brings more than just damage in her kit. She has skills to bypass shields, remove Quicken and also dispel CT up.
Magnus Magnus Added to Niche/Filler Farm Magnus' J+ has added such utility to his kit. The support nullification can be very handy in various situations (currently the only farmable unit with this ability), and he has very good jewel economy. In addition to that, if players are into pvp/arena, he is one of the stand out unit for this purpose
26.8.2021 Sharon Sharon Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Sharon is still a strong Thunder Slash Unit, but her kit shows sadly how old it is in comparison to other units like Corvus or Gerald. Her damage isn't too potent anymore either.
Hozuki Hozuki Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm While she still has her niche as a good Dark Support, she nowadays lacks the tools to compete against the other supports outside of her element
Lucretia Lucretia Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Lucretia on her own fills a very small niche in the form of status immunity for the first 3 turns (which on it own is pretty strong) but sadly none such stage has been present for the longest time
Miuna Miuna Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm Miuna on her own isn't the best unit as she works as a buffer/debuffer for Patk Slash based units. So, although she is strong with those units, you need to farm them first and have the time to set up the situations for her use
Eizan Eizan Added to Niche/Filler Farm Eizan's Master Ability boosts his stackable PATK buff quite significantly, bringing in a strong competition against other blacksmiths especially in buffing.
20.8.2021 Kaya Kaya Useful Farm -> Should Farm Her future J+ offers quite some utility (debuff and alchemy crush) which makes her into a valuable asset especially among farmable units
02.05.2021 Vettel Vettel Useful Farm -> Should Farm His j+ is one of the best ones that was released. It fixes a lot of his issues, gives him a cover skill and an amazing tool set.
Leafah Leafah Useful Farm -> Should Farm While new people will most likely not have a missile team ready, its important to get her for future missile comps.
Lupinus Lupinus Useful Farm -> Should Farm Since her g6 addition and buffs to her g2/MA she became a good fire mage while also being good a unique all-elemental debuffer
Kudanstein Kudanstein Useful Farm -> Should Farm Kudan is fairly used in a lot of strats which makes him a stable in such cases and his j++ makes him pretty important, especially when Dark element is mostly filled with limited units.
Nina Nina Useful Farm -> Should Farm Nina is hands down the best Dark enemy nuker we have in the game for now and with both her memes she does insane numbers against them
Noah Noah Added to Should Farm Being a good fire mage while also being one of the best fire buffers in the game (outside of Icona) makes her a very useful unit for starters
Moa Moa Useful Farm -> Removed She is a great clean up unit but at the same time she doesnt give much outside of that aspect atm.
Shayna Shayna Useful Farm -> Niche/Filler Farm She has her niche as one of the best counter meme units incase of heavy high damage inc and being one of the better Water Strike units, but there are other options that are useable
Neica Neica Useful Farm -> Removed She is one of the best units in light once build but the investment that is needed for the gain is way to large for any new people who comes to the game (and even vets avoid it since it needs her meme on mlb). Overall, it is better to rely on Nina and Cheryl for light damage (and using limited like vier/emmel etc for those wholes to fill)
Eve Eve Added to Useful Farm She is used to CT down allies for special setups and can be used as a chronomancer. Once her j+ is released she becomes a monster to deal with in pvp and some pve maps
Reido Reido Niche/Filler Farm -> Useful Farm He will be amazing ones his j+ comes out and is very strong in the future as a Magic slash unit
Uzuma Uzuma Niche/Filler Farm -> Useful Farm Uzuma fills a evasion niche with an amazing j+ which makes her a great Damage dealer
Miuna Miuna Niche/Filler Farm -> Useful Farm Miuna is a stable unit now in raids and overall has a great toolkit for Extra, hard and normal boss manual gameplay
Corvus Corvus Niche/Filler Farm -> Useful Farm While Corvus is mostly used for his insane evasion and slash buff he will have only 25% of his hp left (with no way to heal outside of losing his damage buff). But looking at what Thunder slash is lacking atm in none limited and his cheapness with a free meme makes him a good option.
Chloe Chloe Niche/Filler Farm -> Useful Farm The amount of buffs she has gotten over the months including her 2nd meme make her a force to reckoned with, while also being fairly early buildable
