Overview

The Advantage System is Dark Deity's take on the Weapon Triangle seen in the Fire Emblem series. The way it works is that every class has one of nine damage types and one of four armor types. Depending on a unit's armor type, they can receive more or less damage when being attacked by the different damage types. There are base percentage modifiers listed in the Damage Type table below, but they are further altered by a unit's Mastery (MAS) skill. The higher a unit's MAS is, the base percentage modifiers skew more positive (making negatives closer to neutral and positives even higher).
