Experience Gained by Feeding - Costumes & Heroes
A unique feature to the costumes is that you can feed both Trained Heroes OR duplicate costumes you pulled. These costumes give a massive boost in the experience that you earn.
Special Skill Likelihood (%) to Increase
Thanks to @DGERic for confirming a couple of the SS chances.
It’s worth noting that, same as a hero, if the Costume max levels but the Special Skill is not, any further feeding gets a 5x multiplyer on the Special Skill going up. So a 1* on colour feeder goes from 2% to 10% chance of increasing the special skill.
Interesting note, thanks to @Ser_Dit, we now know that feeding a costumed hero doesn’t give any benefit to the Special Skill, still just 6% (i.e. feed a costumed Brianne to another costume Brianne still gives 6% SS chance).
Experience Required - Each Ascension Tier & In Total.
I tracked the Exp for levelling Hawkmoon in Tier 1 from level 1 to level 20 against some previous work done by @MuaaDip and @bruceforte (there work Here). It matched up perfectly.
So with that, I am assuming that the Exp requirements for levelling a costume continue to track and as such are below.
Also included is Approximately how many TC11 trainings you need to complete to max a costume.
Ascension Material Requirements!
Information provided by many people so THANKS!!!
