If you want to breed a monster with relatively high gene strength in all categories, you need to splice them.
Both parents need to have around equal gene strength, but should not have overlapping contributing Gene Stats.
Parent 1 has HP, ATK, Int
Parent 2 has Def, Speed
The offspring results in HP, Atk, Int, Def, Speed.
Splicing redistributes the stat growth of the monster, it does not increase much the resultant +gene strength you see on a monster, if anything that number is deceptive.
When the breeding partner has zero gene strength, it only contributes to the +GENE amount of the child, level of the monster influences it somewhat, but it is also influenced by current Gene strength of the 1st monster and capped by 200% of the Mage’s level. Eventually if gene strength is high enough it reaches a point where the partner’s gene level doesn’t matter, but in the start when gene strength is only in double digits, it helps quite a bit.
The tricky part is finding out the right creatures to breed for specific stat growths and how not to mess them up when you splice them.
Generally you will always want HP on your monsters.
A thoroughbred Masochist witch will give
HP, ATK, INT
Basically it’s only good for spell casting, as it has no speed. You need speed if you want to use physical attacks.
What is neccessary is a creature which gives Defense and Speed only.
I haven’t found one, but I’m thinking it will be one of the Amaranths.
But from what I have done is spliced some +1000 thorough breds.
Masochist Witch + Tower Giant + Raven Acolyte
Raven Acolyte has high speed and int.
I breed a Masochist witch with Raven Acolyte
I went from
And then I bred it with a Tower Giant which is Mainly Defense and I got this
I feel I’m heading in the right direction of how breeding works, but I haven’t quite got it yet
