Type Temp Buffer
Official Description
A beetle native to the Kamura area. The term Wirebug generally refers to the females of the species. It is capable of producing a super-strong silk colloquially known as Ironsilk, which it uses to carry materials to build its nest. For ages, the villages of Kamura have trained Wirebugs to make use of their mobility. It's skittish when feral, but quite obedient once trained. Loves Jewel Lilies.

How to Use Wirebug

Temporary Wirebug Gauge Bonus

Once you pick up a Wirebug from the wild, you temporarily gain an extra Wirebug Gauge. You can only have an extra one, so gathering more Wirebugs only refreshes the 3rd gauge. Remember that the extra Wirebug gauge only lasts for 90 seconds, use this time wisely. Learn more about using Wirebugs at their full capacity by reading our article linked below!

      Each upgrade level adds 2 points to defense. Depending on rarity the armor will have different levels to max up to. Take the total levels minus one and multiply by 2 to get the total defense plus what the armor started with.

    • Thunder God's Armor
      Pigment 2 for all is 160, 50, 15
      Head and chest 1: 35, 65, 20
