The Gene system is arranged in a hexagon structure, with one main attribute surrounded by 6 sub-attributes. To activate a sub-attribute, players must first light up all the genes on the branch that it runs along. Using Gene Diagrams and gene materials (obtained from dungeons and the mystery shop) players can synthesize a particular gene and light it up on the branch. The attribute bonus given by the main attribute (central attribute) will increase as each gene lights up. Once six sub-attributes are activated, the next gene level will be unlocked. For every gene level the sub-attributes are the same, but the main attribute will vary. Higher gene levels offer greater attribute bonuses.
The Gene system icon can be found at the bottom right corner of screen. The system can be used to greatly increase player battle rating by granting attribute bonuses.
