An Axie with the class advantage over the other Axie will deal 15% bonus damage. Additionally, Axies at a class disadvantage will also deal 15% less damage. Reptile, Plant, and Dusk Axies are strong against, Aquatic, Bird, and Dawn Axies. Aquatic, Bird, and Dawn Axies are strong against Beast, Bug, and Mech Axies. Beast, Bug, and Mech Axies are strong against, Aquatic, Bird, and Dawn Axies.

The game has four stats, each doing one thing for your Axie.

  • Health – determines the amount of damage an Axie can take.
  • Morale – increases critical strike chance and has increased chances for Last Stand.
  • Skill – adds extra damage when an Axie uses multiple cards in one move.
  • Speed – determines the turn order of Axies. When Axies have the same speed, their attack order will be determined by: high speed, low HP, high skill, high morale, and low fighter ID.

Now, your Axie’s stats will also depend on two variables. The first is the class of the Axie, and the second is the body parts or cards that it has. Each body part will add extra stats based on its element.

  • Aquatic: +3 Speed, +1 HP
  • Beast: +3 Morale, +1 Speed
  • Bird: +3 Speed, +1 Morale
  • Bug: +3 Morale, +1 HP
  • Plant: +3 HP, +1 Morale
  • Reptile, +3 HP, +1 Speed


There are two primary types of Axies in the game. You have the tank and the DPS. The tank will sit in the front line and try to absorb as much damage for the team. Tanks should have high HP for their stats. DPS Axies are focused on attacking the enemy team. They should have high speed, skill, and morale. Certain Axie types are fit for specific roles.

Final Thoughts on How To Pick Your First Axies

The common misconception is that more expensive means a better Axie. However, when buying in the marketplace, you must remember that players can price their Axie however they want. A high price point does not necessarily mean that the Axie is strong. It is always best to look at their stats first.
