Getting Started

Wave Mode is a brand new mode in CrossFire! To create a room choose "Wave Mode" from the menu options when you make a new game. Wave Mode has a unique lobby and User Interface as well as it's own leveling systems. You can level up your Class, your Wave Mode Level, and you even gain bonuses within each Wave Mode game! Read below for more details on how to navigate the Classes and Wave Mode UI Screens.



Select Class

There are many Classes to choose from in Wave Mode, and you must choose one in order to play. For details on the abilities of each Class, see the "Class Cards" section of the wave mode guide. To select a Class, click on your empty “card slot” that lists your IGN, rank icon and Wave Mode level. You will be taken to your inventory of Class cards.





Classes are used by equipping the corresponding card for that class (e.g., equipping the Marksman card enables you to use the Marksman Class in Wave Mode). Click the card for the class you would like to play as, then click “Select Card”.
This brings you back to the Wave Mode lobby, where you can start or join a fight! Additional Class Cards can be won by playing Wave Mode.


Class Cards

Class Cards can be Enhanced using spare Class Cards won from playing Wave Mode. This increases the stats unique to the abilities of that Class when playing Wave Mode. The exact increase to ability stats is shown by hovering the mouse over your Class Card.





To Enhance a Class Card, you must be in your Class Card inventory. From there, drag the card you wish to Enhance to the first Card Slot on the right.





Then, choose the card you will use to Enhance the first card, and drag that to the second Card Slot on the right. Once both Class cards are in place, click the “Reinforce” button. You will then have a stronger Class Card!





Enhancing a Class Card requires you to sacrifice a second, extra card. For best results, you should use a card of the same Class as the card you want to Enhance (like in the screenshot above). Once a card is used to Enhance another card, it is destroyed and will be removed from your Class Card inventory—so think carefully before choosing which card to use as Enhancement Material!



--Success & Failure--

If successful, the first card will be Enhanced with an increase to its ability stats and a “+1” added to it. Every time this card is Enhanced, another 1 point will be added to this number—to a maximum of “+10”—and the stat increase will get bigger!
The Enhancement can Fail, however. This results in no increase to the ability stats of the Class you are Enhancing. Once a Class Card is +5 or more, Failing an Enhancement could also result in a loss of some or all of this rank (e.g., +5 could be reduced to +4, or even all the way back to 0).



--Class Stabilizers--


To ensure that an Enhancement succeeds, you can purchase an “Enhancement Stabilizer” from the Item Shop. Not only do Enhancement Stabilizers greatly increase success rate for Class Cards above +5, but they prevent the card from losing any rank if the Enhancement does fail. To use an Enhancement Stabilizer, simply check the box below the Enhancement Card slots before starting the Enhancement process.





GEMS

You can also increase the basic stats (Damage, Speed,etc.) of a Class by attaching Gems to Class Cards. Gems can be purchased in the Item Shop. The higher your Wave Mode level is, the more Gems you can attach; and the more Gems you attach, the stronger you’ll be on the battlefield!



The color of Gem attached determines which stat is increased, while the type of Gem determines the amount of increase. Perfect Gems increase a stat by twice as much as standard Gems do.


--Ruby--

Increases Weapon Damage.

--Sapphire--

Reduces Damage taken.

--Topaz--

Increases Ammo Capacity.

--Amethyst--

Increases Movement Speed.


--Removing gems--

Gems that have been attached to a Class Card can be removed and placed back in your inventory, by using the Gem Removal Coupon found in the Item Shop. This way, you can re-attach the Gems to a different Class; making sure that any Class you bring to battle will be the best they can be.


Winning items

After every Wave Mode match you will win one of a variety of items—from New Class Cards to Bonus EXP & GP. So be sure to get in as many Wave Mode matches as possible!
