Overload is the reaction between Pyro and Electro. It creates an explosion, dealing AoE Pyro damage and sending lighter enemies flying. Overload by itself isn’t strong, so it’s typically a secondary reaction within a soup of other reactions. Plus, chasing down knock-backed enemies is annoying if not handled properly.


The example teams are not intended to be the best for that specific archetype. Some of them are strong, while others are just fun teams that will struggle in the highest levels of the Abyss. Some archetypes are weaker than others, as they don’t have a strong roster to draw from. But that doesn’t make them less enjoyable to play in the overworld.

We tried restricting each team to no more than two limited 5* units.

All the archetypes have multiple lineups that work. Use these guides to help you experiment with your own teams!
