If you’ve been thinking of checking out Twisted Wonderland, get ready because you’re in for a wild ride, some great storytelling, and most importantly, characters. At the beginning of the game, you will get to pick one as your starter that comes in the form of their ceremonial robes. While this choice won’t necessarily make or break your gameplay, some are better than others. Of course, you should always choose the card for love, not meta. However, if you want some help, these are the ceremonial robes cards in Twisted Wonderland.
The stern head of Heartslabyul is a great card for doing strong fire damage and defense, coming with a high amount of HP. His water spells are pretty useless though, so that’s something to keep in mind if you want someone a little more well-rounded.
Ace, also known as one half of the Ace and Deuce brain cell duo, is an attacker card whose expertise is Flora spells. His stats and spell powers are pretty neck in neck, which makes him an excellent DPS starter. Be careful if you plan to use him in any Octavinelle boss fights because his fire spells will be useless against Azul’s water attacks.
Deuce and his Shonen protagonist energy shine through in this card, where he is a water and fire-based attacker. His stats are middle tier, but his real power comes in his build. With water spells as his main, he’d typically be used against flora-based enemies, which would not damage against his fire spells.
We love Cater as much as he loves himself, but he somewhat underperforms in this card. He has the stats and skills of a defender card yet is an attacker. This leaves his spells doing poor damage most of the time even after being leveled. The damage boost in his first spell can be useful though if you need an extra support unit.
Without Trey, the Heartslabyul dorm would certainly be in chaos. While his spells are something left to be desired, he’s one of the best support cards thanks to his damage boost buff and very high HP. He can do well in endurance fights as long as there aren’t any fire cards to be a problem.
Our grumpy king wannabe is an excellent balanced card that has a strong flora spell that provides a good boost. He’s not the strongest card in terms of power but definitely not the weakest either. His stats allow him to fill the role of support while detaining water-based enemies.
The good boy of Night Raven College is a top tier choice for knocking out fire enemies. You want to use these types of cards for the 5 turn damage battles where the team with the higher percentage wins. While he is very strong, Jack’s poor HP makes him quite fragile to other more powerful opponents.
Ruggie the shrewd hyena is someone to definitely consider if you’re looking for someone who isn’t too specific in terms of stats. While his power level isn’t overly impressive, he makes up for this by having a fire spell that does double power along with a high HP bar. He’ll destroy foes without going down easily.
The charismatic yet shady Octavinelle boss is desirable for his powerful cosmic spell. Cosmic attacks are special because they do not have any weaknesses, so anytime you get a card like that, prioritize leveling it. Azul’s stats make him perfect for a DPS against most bosses. His HP and power are well balanced, making him one of the finest robe cards you can pick.
While Jade might be the charming Leech, you might want to skip out on this card if you already have a flame attacker. He isn’t bad by any means; it is just there are much better flame based DPS units that outperform him. His low attack and HP don’t really make the cut when you could just reroll on the tutorial and get dorm Riddle, a stronger flame DPS.
For a meat shield against water enemies, consider picking the less predictable Leech twin Floyd. He won’t be too useful for doing damage, but his maxed HP of 9558 is the perfect defense. Not to mention since his second spell is water based, he won’t take a ton of water damage when it’s active.
Kalim’s sunny disposition isn’t enough to make his robe card shine through. Like the Jade card, there are just so many with better assets. He does have the merit of a cosmic spell, but it doesn’t provide a ton of substance in fights. Kalim’s HP is very high for him being an attacker card, so he could provide protection. He works well for early battles but may lose utility as you get deep into the game.
The coordinator of chaos inside Scarabia is a highly recommended choice because of its composition. Jamil’s main spell is flora and his second spell is water, so if you are using him against a water enemy, he’ll have an extra later of HP protection. This in turns works well with his somewhat frail stats, making an ideal balanced choice.
Vil isn’t quite the fairest of them all when it comes to his robe card. His power is quite low for being an attack card and the set-up of his spells makes him difficult to find a use for. This makes him a poor fit for most teams, but if he’s the only Vil card you have, level him, as it will come in handy for a later part of the main story.
Epel is a great pick thanks to his support buff, which can last for three turns when the spell is fully leveled. Because of this, make sure to focus on leveling his first spell before the second one. That spell is fairly useless as a whole. Epel will also give a decent power boost when paired with Vil cards. He works best as a support and defender more than an attacker.
The Huntsman Rook suits the role of defender very well with his exceptional HP stats. Cards like this are important to get you through the beginning of the game when you don’t have the means to power up all your units. Therefore, Rook is suitable to be a beginner friendly card. He also has the merit of not losing his utility throughout the game.
Don’t be fooled by Idia’s timid personality, for he is very strong. This is a card that can carry you for a long time thanks to his low amount of weakness in all areas. His HP and attack stats match up well and his spells work perfectly together. The only thing to look out for is that his flora spell may require grinding in order to be useful.
Most of the robe cards have skills that blend, but Ortho is one of the most unique ones and if you get it, you’re going to want to set aside all materials for him. His first spell can repair HP while his second has a self-boost when leveled. He’s a very important card, so don’t let him sit in your roster.
Everybody loves the mysterious fairy prince Malleus. You’re going to want to invite him to the party specifically thanks to a special support boost ingrained in his first spell. Besides that, he has decent HP and above average power, along with a less effective but equally important boost in his second spell. He’s essentially a support card with attack stats, which makes him a perfect choice all around.
Silver is a great card in all aspects, but he may not be the best for a new player because he can take some time to enhance in order to get the best use out of him. His best features are his high HP and support boosts. If you don’t mind some work, this is an exceptional card that’s worth it.
Malleus’s number one fan just doesn’t make the cut in this form. His low power stats and spells cause him to underperform. He does have support boosts like the other Diasomnia members, but his mid-tier numbers make them difficult to use. The reality is a support card that can’t sustain itself has very little use.
The defender card of the Diasomnia members, Lilia will do anything to protect his family and students and does so beautifully with his 9102 HP bar. Besides that, his spell power is so-so at best. The buff that’s in his second spell can power up your DPS units, but don’t expect much from the second one.
You can eventually get all these cards in the general summoning pool, so don’t fret too much about your choice. Hopefully this helped you narrow down your options and enjoy Twisted Wonderland!
