What are Echoes in Wuthering Waves

Echoes serve as a fundamental element in Wuthering Waves. In essence, they represent remnants that remain after defeating enemies within the game’s world. These fragments can be utilized by Resonators, enabling them to summon creatures, adding an addictive element akin to monster-collecting. Furthermore, Echoes double as armor, emphasizing the importance of equipping suitable Echoes to Resonators to unlock their maximum capabilities.

What are Phantom Echoes in Wuthering Waves

Phantom Echoes are essentially rare variants of regular Echoes, often colloquially known as “ShinyEchoes due to their rarity. While they maintain the same stats as their common counterparts, they boast very low drop rates. In Wuthering Waves, these Phantom Echoes serve as collectible cosmetic skins, adding a layer of exclusivity and desirability to the game. Currently, there are six Phantom Echoes available:

  • Phantom Feilian Beringal
  • Phantom Hoartoise
  • Phantom Impermanence Heron
  • Phantom Mourning Aix
  • Phantom Rocksteady Guardian
  • Phantom Thundering Mephis

Hunting for these elusive variants can be rewarding, especially if there’s a particular Phantom Echo that catches your eye.

Echo Cost

Echoes function as armor in Wuthering Waves, with each Resonator capable of equipping five Echoes. The total cost of the Echoes equipped must add up to 12, although early in the game, this is initially limited to 10. Echoes in Wuthering Waves are categorized into three Cost tiers:

  • 1 Cost (Common): These are easily found monsters in the overworld and offer basic capabilities.
  • 3 Cost (Elite): Representing tougher monsters, these Echoes are stronger and provide more advanced abilities.
  • 4 Cost (Overlord/Calamity): Reserved for bosses, these Echoes are the most powerful and impactful in battles.

You can only utilize the Echo Ability of the Echo equipped in your main slot. The other four slots contribute to stat boosts. A common strategy for optimizing Resonators involves a 4-3-3-1-1 setup: equipping a 4 Cost Overlord or Calamity Echo as the main, followed by two 3 Cost Elite Echoes, and concluding with two 1 Cost Common Echoes. This setup maximizes versatility, combining the potency of an Overlord/Calamity Echo Ability with beneficial boosts from Elite and Common Echoes.

Echo Sonata Effects

Sonata Effects function as set bonuses for Echoes, akin to armor sets. Each Echo has its own Sonata Effect. Equipping Echoes with matching Sonata Effects in pairs or groups of five grants passive stat boosts known as 2 Set or 5 Set bonuses, respectively.

Echo Stats in Wuthering Waves

Every Echo in Wuthering Waves possesses a Main Stat and a Secondary Main Stat that are visible upon obtaining the Echo and improve with the Echo’s level. On the other hand, Substats are initially locked and must be unlocked as the Echo levels up.

Echo Main Stats

Main Stats are randomized, providing one of several percentage boosts based on the Cost tier of your Echo.

  • 1 Cost (Common): HP%, ATK%, DEF%
  • 3 Cost (Elite): HP%, ATK%, DEF%, Energy Regen%, Attribute DMG% (e.g., Aero, Electro, etc)
  • 4 Cost (Elite – Overlord/Calamity): HP%, ATK%, DEF%, Crit Rate%, Crit DMG%, Healing Bonus%

Echo Secondary Main Stats

Secondary Main Stats on the other hand are consistent and not subject to randomization. Depending on the Cost of your Echo, you will always receive a boost to one of the following values as a Secondary Main Stat.

  • 1 Cost (Common): Flat HP
  • 3 Cost (Elite): Flat ATK
  • 4 Cost (Elite): Flat ATK

Echo Substats

In Wuthering Waves, each Echo can have up to 5 Substats displayed below the Main Stat and Secondary Main Stat on the menu screen. When you obtain an Echo, only one Substat is randomly generated, providing a boost to one of the following values:

  • Flat HP
  • Flat ATK
  • Flat DEF
  • HP%
  • ATK%
  • DEF%
  • Crit Rate%
  • Crit DMG%
  • Basic Attack DMG Bonus%
  • Heavy Attack DMG Bonus%
  • Resonance Skill DMG Bonus%
  • Resonance Liberation DMG Bonus

Every five levels that your Echo gains, a new Substat becomes unlockable. To unlock these Substats, you’ll need specific materials for the Echo Tuning process in-game. The Substats you acquire are randomized, making it worthwhile to continue farming for Echoes to achieve optimal Stat combinations.

Final Thoughts

Wuthering Waves offers a good list of Echoes, each with unique abilities and stats that can greatly impact gameplay. Understanding Echoes, their Sonata Effects, and stat mechanics is crucial for optimizing your Resonators. With Echo Tuning and the hunt for Phantom Echoes, there’s plenty of room for strategic exploration and progression in the game.
