Ulala: Idle Adventure has certainly set the bar high as the idle game to beat with its relatively massive offering and depth not akin to conventional idle games. With even little time spent on actually playing the game to sort out your loot, run through some errands, and make improvements to your hero, every bit of growth and development can be felt with each subsequent immersion.
The best part, perhaps, lies with Ulala: Idle Adventure being an MMORPG of sorts where you form a hunting party with 3 other players to race against other teams and make it farther ahead of the crowd. While your hero will continue to earn experience points, level up, and acquire better gears and skills regardless of how much time you spend on the game, there will always be a more efficient way of farming for items and moving forward through each area. While constantly upgrading and enhancing is a must, your rate of progress will also be dependent on the team you are with as well as the builds each of your heroes possess.
As the main impediment towards your progress in the game will be the your hero’s level in contrast with level requirements of the next area as well as your team’s overall strength in defeating bosses, working on the right build early on will greatly help you and your team’s performance on otherwise more challenging area bosses and enable you to farm higher amounts of experience points to make it to the next map faster.
If you have yet to start playing Ulala: Idle Adventure or have just started enjoying the game, be sure to read our beginner’s guide. We covered the basic mechanics and features of the game in our previous guide as well as discussed tips and strategies to get you started right in the game. We have also published a detailed pets guide, that explains how to train your pets in the game and unlock new skills. For our current guide, we will be focusing exclusively on setting up the right build for your chosen class and while you may have already began playing the game and built your hero differently, there are always chances in Ulala: Idle Adventure to completely change your character’s design.
Like in any RPG, knowing the different stat attributes and identifying which from among them benefits your class the most is an important key to determining how to build your hero right. While these attributes are present in any character, the initial values differ making it a viable choice to bank on a particular class’ strengths and, in some cases, invest a bit to compensate for what they are lacking in. While some aspects of the game that impact the growth of these stats may be beyond control, levelling up and earning energy points you can freely distribute heavily impacts how your hero can perform in battle moving forward. Likewise, prioritizing upgrades for gears that boost an important stat or even spending shells at the store for more important gems that raise stats you need the most.
To start off, the different offensive stat attributes in Ulala: Idle Adventure are Attack, Attack Speed, Hit, Critical, and Impale. Attack stands as the most basic attribute to invest on if your character class takes on a DPS role. Simply put, investing in Attack means raising damage per hit. While some characters increase DPS based on having high Attack values, Attack Speed banks on the ability of being able to launch more attacks within the same period of time and consequently also increasing overall damage capacity.
While not all attacks are guaranteed to deal the same amount of damage or even make contact to an enemy, Hit raises the chance of ensuring that damage is dealt to any given target. Having high Hit stat values can increase the potential of dealing more damage to every target as well as actually hitting them. While there exists a maximum normal value of damage each attack can deal to a target, critical hits go beyond that damage. As critical hits are based on luck and probability as well, investing on the Crit stat increases the chances of performing a critical hit on an enemy. Last, but not the least is the Impale attribute, which is actually an insurance for dealing the same amount of damage for targets that have high Block stats.
For defensive stat attributes, we have HP, Armor, Evasion, Tenacity, and Block. A character’s HP or hit points determine how many percent of its life will be taken away after taking damage from a hit and directly affect survivability. Considering everything else equal, a character with high HP values will naturally be able to take in more hits. Another defensive stat is Armor and in contrast with HP, a hero with higher stat values for Armor will take less damage from attacks. It may happen that a character with higher armor but less HP will survive longer than another character with reversed stat values. Regardless of HP and Armor values, a character that has high stat values allocated to Evasion raises the probability of avoiding hits. This means that while this character is fragile, taking less number of hits due to completely avoiding them can also be a means of surviving longer.
As luck and probability can also impact the outcome of battles through critical hits, which deal much higher damage than the usual amount, Tenacity lowers the probability of actually taking a critical hit. While tenacity works much like evasion, each one is independent of one another. While a hero may not be intrinsically adept as far as evading attacks are concerned, having high stat values on the Block attribute also reinforces the character’s defensive capabilities. Despite consistently taking in hits, having a high chance to block an incoming attack can greatly reduce the damage a hero takes from it.
Gladiator Class Build
As the first of two available tanks in the game, the gladiator stands as one of the toughest characters in the game and rallies at the front of a party. As such, gladiators are likely to take in more damage from enemies and should naturally be built to stand it. In contrast with the warrior class, gladiators possess higher innate attack values and likewise possesses more offensive skills although being on a full party with two other classes focused primarily on DPS roles basically make the gladiator swerve towards a purely defensive build. As such, it is reasonable to consider working on these characteristics when building a gladiator as far as energy points distribution and skill selection is concerned.
Once you reach level 14 and have the ability to distribute the energy points you earned from each level you gained, you can begin customizing your character’s build based on the allocation of the energy points across 3 unique stat classifications. Boosting strength raises the gladiator’s attack value, hit, and impale stats. Allocating points to stamina will increase max HP, block rate, and evasion rate as well. Investing in tech will boost armor rating, critical, and tenacity. While each of the choices all impact the gladiator positively, you have to prioritize based on what role the gladiator ought to be performing, which in most cases, should be a tank.
Following this logic, you should max out energy point allocations on stamina first, as this will impact both HP and block rate, and then spend the remaining points on tech for a boost in armor rating. While the gladiator can dish damage more than the warrior class, being in the right party means being along other characters who can surpass the gladiator in terms of DPS.
While the gladiator has more skills aimed towards survival and contributing damage, there a couple of skills that support the team as well. While there are an abundant number of skills to choose from for each class in Ulala: Idle Adventure, we will only note some of them which we believe will contribute best to the class build we are aiming for. Blood Howl is one of the first skills you will earn and should keep as a gladiator. Upon activation, this skill continuously restores the gladiator’s HP for 10 seconds and also reduces the damage he takes by 10%. Hoo Kham Kham is an important skills to have as well as it taunts enemies and forces them to attack you instead of your allies.
Let’s Charge is a party support skill that raises attack attributes for each member of your party. Where bosses are known to inflict negative status effects and debuffs to your party, Battle Shout will become a necessary skill to keep in your arsenal as it restores your HP on top of removing a random debuff. Hoo Hoo Hoo is the defensive equivalent of Let’s Charge, so if you need to buff everyone’s defense stats, this is the skill to pack. As some of these skills take a while to obtain, feel free to sub in more HP recovery skills for the mean time.
Warrior Class Build
The more support skills-oriented Warrior class stands as the defensive equivalent of the gladiator but lacks behind as far as offensive prowess goes. Both classes should be similar in role and function as both should take point in combat formation. While there may be a slight inkling in the gladiator role to invest some energy points on strength to boost his attack values, choosing to go with a warrior class leaves little to no room for going against a purely defensive character.
Considering only defensive stats, therefore, energy point allocations should be primarily considered for stamina to increase max HP and block rate. Given that there is a limit as to how many points can be allocated to one particular stat, the only other choice to invest energy points on is tech for to increase the warrior’s armor rating.
Many of the warrior’s skills are exact replicas of what the gladiator has but with a different name. Just to give an idea on skills you should keep in your inventory we will be presenting our favorite ones. Resolution is a self-buff that grants a boost in the warrior’s armor. As warriors will constantly be taking in damage during each battle you engage in, you might as well pack some skills that reduce the damage you soak in from enemies’ attacks. Our twin favorite team buffs that gladiators equip are called Call To Arms and Hoo Hah Hah for the warrior and boost each member of the team’s attack and defense stats respectively.
Lion’ Roar is also a notable skill for the warrior as it boosts the warrior’s block rate and can also interrupt an enemy’s skill casting. Hoo Kham Kham, like the warrior’s skill of the same name, is a sacrificial but necessary skill to have as well to taunt all enemies and have them focus their attacks on you and away from all other party members.
Shaman Class Build
The shaman is the support character in the game that largely focuses on healing. Although shamans can also obtain some offensive spells, being the life sustainer of the party is a role to prioritize on as other classes excel in dealing damage. Compared to the druid, which is the other support class in Ulala: Idle Adventure, the shaman has more healing spells but lags a little behind in terms of having spells that buff and offer other means of support for the party.
While it has been established that shamans should not be built to deal damage to enemies in battle, Intelligence still stands as the top attribute to invest on as doing so will boost the effectiveness of the shaman’s healing spells. As shamans are fragile as well, allocating the remaining energy points to stamina will boost the shaman’s HP, block rate, as well as evasion rate. Compared to investing energy points on tech, that only boosts armor and tenacity for defensive bonuses, stamina is the better choice for its increase in 3 defensive stats.
The shaman can easily acquire a plethora of spells that heal teammates and, for the most part, the appropriateness of each one may depend on your team’s roster as well as each member’s build. Beyond the healing spells, however, there are some noteworthy spells to consider on top of the usual ability you may deem fit for a full-time healer. First off is Charm Dance, which is an AoE damage-dealing spell that is useful not for the damage, but for the silence debuff it can inflict on the enemy. Drums of Purge is an equally notable skill to have as it prevents debuff for the whole team for a few seconds with a bonus small amount of heal.
Font of Purge is yet another skill that can remove a random debuff for the whole party and also boost their HP recovery rate. As far as healing spells go, we would recommend Dance With Me as a staple healing spell since it heals the caster as well as the teammate with the lowest HP.
Warlock Class Build
The warlock is the DPS equivalent of the shaman but while warlocks can dish out decent amounts of damage, they specialize in inflicting negative status effects to enemies on top of raw elemental damage. As one of the most popular classes among players currently in Ulala: Idle Adventure, being a warlock typically boils down to having the same stat considerations. However, with the plethora of single target and AoE damage spells in the warlock’s arsenal, along with the abundance of debilitating spell effects, it is safe to say that you can build an effective shaman that focuses entirely on dealing damage or debuffing enemies, or having a good mix of both.
Like the shaman, there is no better consideration for allocating energy points to boost the attributes of you’re the warlock than to prioritize intelligence over everything as it impacts the warlock’s damage value, and allocating the remainder of your energy points on stamina.
As far as skills go, there are plenty of choices to go for if you want to exclusively consider dealing raw damage. In that sense, the choice would further be divided between considering single target spells and AoE damage and that would also depend on the other DPS character you are paired with in the party. Keep in mind that some notable spells you should keep a lookout for if you want to incorporate debuffing into your arsenal can very well support the survival of your team. Polymorph: Frog may not come close to dealing as much damage as other single target spells in the warlock’s arsenal, but transforming an enemy into a frog is an absolute game-changer. Not only does it incapacitate an enemy, it also buys time for the entire party to recover and take in less damage for the duration of the effect.
Soul Lash is perhaps one of the more potent damage-dealing spell as it lowers the enemy’s armor on top of dealing massive damage. Where enemies buff themselves, packing Drain among your equipped skills will be a must as it can remove a random buff from an enemy on top of boosting the warlock’s damage values. Quack Quack Quack is also an indispensable control skill that can stun an enemy on top of dealing some damage.
Assassin Class Build
As the only melee DPS character in Ulala: Idle Adventure, assassins tend to dish out a lot of damage in exchange for the risk of taking in as much as well. As a close combat damage-dealer, assassins will typically have to move in close to the enemy to attack. As powerful bosses may easily outpower an assassin in later areas, being one will be a challenge in a team that lacks members with support skills. As such, if you choose to play as an assassin, be sure to join up with classes that offer support spells.
While assassins stand as a DPS character and should prioritize raising his attack values above all else, choosing to bank energy points on agility to boost attack value, hit, and impale stats is a commendable and perhaps, common way of building an assassin. With some skills that boost the evasion rating of the assassin, on top of needing to invest points on the assassin’s defensive stats, allocating the remaining points on stamina would be a practical choice. This is primarily to further boost the assassin’s evasion rate on top of the max HP increase and block rate boost. As having some energy points invested in stamina secondarily may not be sufficient, you can alternatively go for an assassin that prioritizes boosting stamina over agility.
Going for an all-out attack skill-based assassin is perhaps a typical consideration for an end-game build and there are plenty of DPS skills to choose from. If you have collected enough skills through different maps and want to go for pure DPS, consider skills that work around earning technique points and dealing more damage as a result of it. Before you settle for a full offensive build, though, try to ascertain first that your tank and support party members are strong enough to ensure your survival through the bosses ahead.
There are considerable choices of skills that can boost the assassin’s survivability and equipping some of them may prove to be a wiser choice than exclusively having offensive skills in your arsenal. Cloak of Bush will be among the first skills you will obtain playing an assassin and, once activated, it can render you immune from control skills as well as boost both your defense and attack values. Zeal is a unique skill in the sense that it heals you as well as deals damage to an enemy. It is definitely not as potent as all other damage-dealing skills but sustaining your own HP so the healer can spend her healing on others can help the entire party.
Hunter Class Build
The hunter is the safer, ranged version of the assassin and also performs as a DPS character in the party. While assassins can deal more damage as faster attacks sink in while on the frontlines as opposed to being a rear-ender such as a hunter, hunters have much higher rates of survivability as they will less likely take damage. As hunters are known across most RPGs as a top pick for solo players, hunters have very little to offer as far as supporting the entire team is concerned.
Choosing to play as a hunter naturally means wanting to deal as much damage as possible. As such, it is only practical to prioritize agility over all attributes as each energy point invested on it leads to higher attack, hit percentage and impale probability. As you will not need as much investment on stamina and the stat boosts that it offers, considering tech as the secondary attribute to lodge energy points on is the wiser alternative because of the critical rate boost it provides.
While most, if not all, hunters in Ulala: Idle Adventure sports the same stat distribution, chances are that there are as many variation of skill picks as there are as many players using the hunter in the game. Decision points as to which skills to equip will be based largely on whether to consider single target skills or those that can hit multiple enemies. In any case, there are various choices to pick and aside from purely dealing damage, there are also noteworthy skills that are useful beyond simply dealing damage.
Numbing Shot may not deal as much damage as other single target skills but having the added effect of interrupting skill casting is an effect of great value. If you have heavily invested in your tech attribute and has decent crit level, Hawk Call – Sheen is a skill to consider given that it further boosts your critical rate. Boar’s Rush is also a considerable skill beyond the damage it inflicts as the stun effect it has can be a huge advantage for any party in battle.
Druid Class Build
Druids are the second type of healers in Ulala: Idle Adventure. While both at par with one another as far as healing spells are concerned, Druids can have more support spells than the Shaman but fall behind in terms of contributing to damage. Being a healer means that you have to be able at all times to replenish your teammates health and, with that, requires a bit of defensive capabilities to ensure that you are able to support the whole team.
Like Shamans, Druids also need to invest heavily on the intelligence attribute as doing so raises the potency of every healing spell they have. As Druids are also equally frail like Shamans, allocating extra energy points on stamina to raise HP, evasion rate, and block rate is also recommended. Given that Druids may need HP as much as they need to boost the effects of their healing, you might be inclined to equally allocate your energy points between intelligence and stamina. Instead of doing so, prioritize intelligence to have the highest amount of heals as possible and equip skills that heal you along with the teammate that needs health the most.
There is an abundance of healing spells to choose from as a Druid. While choosing one over the others may depend partly on your team roster, decision points as to general skills equipped will be based on whether you should go for an exclusively healing shaman or one that provides other support skills for the team. Considering the latter choice, New Bud is a definite spell to have despite its underwhelming AoE damage. What boosts its value is the ability to silence all enemies when it hits which gives the party more time to deal extra damage and also extend the period within which you can cast other healing spells. Life Bloom will be essential in some boss battles since it removes debuffs from the entire party and also chips in a bit of healing. Purification Seed almost has the same effect but acts more preventively with a shield that can block debuffs on a party member.
Mage Class Build
Last, but definitely not the least, among character classes in the game is the Mage, which is also among the top picks for players. As the offensive counterpart of the Druid and a comparable class with the Warlock, the Mage class takes the cake as the top glass cannon in the game. Unlike the Warlock who can dish out debuffs as well as demonstrate a bit more survivability, Mages are typically built purely for DPS. Although you can still equip skills on a Mage that does not exclusively deal massive damage, the plethora of skills and skill combos available makes it a little less viable to squeeze in spells for other purposes.
As Mages are naturally built for dealing damage, the top priority in allocating energy points should be intelligence. As every magic user in the game requires some boost in defensive capabilities, investing extra energy points on stamina is the only viable option. Although having a higher level of HP, block rate, and evasion rate will still make the Mage softer than most classes, every bit of aid you can have to boost your own survivability is important.
Like all other DPS classes in the game, you can choose to go for a Mage that focuses on eliminating enemies one by one with single target spells that inflict massive damage or capitalize on AoE spells for crowd control. It can be a mixture of both as well and given the elemental properties of spells in you inventory, you may have to change spells often based on the weakness element of the boss enemy you intend to challenge. In any case, there are some noteworthy spells in the Mage’s arsenal that do not necessarily top the list as far as damage is concerned but great to have equipped in most situations.
Mirror Image one of the few spells that raises the Mage’s survivability. Once activated, the Mage’s mirror image takes damage instead of the mage within a period of time and also contributes to increasing the Mage’s basic attack damage. Purification Wave is a valuable skill as well as it removes buffs from enemies and boosts its damage following its success. It may not be as valuable if the support team member can remove buffs from enemies but in any case, it is a unique skill to keep an eye on.
Despite sharing our picks as to which skills for each class can be considered as valuable for various situations, it is important to still keep at least one copy of every skill you acquire as sticking to your usual set of skills across all areas and bosses is hardly the way to go in Ulala: Idle Adventure. Be sure to try out each skill you pick up as there are certainly a lot more combinations left to be discovered in the game.
