How to Level Up Esper?

You can increase the level of your Espers (heroes) by sacrificing Experimon. Before, you can even sacrifice other Espers to get XP, but it’s not available anymore.

The latent energies hidden within Experimons makes them an ideal vehicle for boosting Espers’ XP.

How to Upgrade Esper Star?

The level cap on an Esper is determined by their Star rating: 2 stars = Lvl 20 cap, 3 stars = Lvl 30, 4 stars = Lvl 40,5 stars = Lvl, 50, and 6 stars = Lvl 60.

Espers who reach their current level cap will only be able to advance further by raising their Star rating.

Raising an Esper’s Star rating will require other Espers of the same Star rating or Starimon. You will need 2/3/4/5 Espers or Starimon to, raise to a 3-Star/4-Star/5-Star/6-Star rating.

Esper Star Esper/Starimon Required
3⭐ 2
4⭐ 3
5⭐ 4
6⭐ 5

Raising the Star rating also improves attributes.

Any Espers or Starimon (also known as ‘fodder’) used for Star Promotion will be lost once the promotion is complete.
We recommend that you do not use other Epic or Legendary Espers for Star Promotion, as these Espers are rare to find, and can be very useful.

Duplicate Espers used in Star Promotion do not increase Resonance of an Esper.

Star Promotion Rewards

When you promote an Esper to either [5☆] or [6☆], you’ll receive rewards based on the element of the Esper you’ve promoted, and whether the promotion was your first promotion of that element at a specific star, or a repeated promotion.

Below is a list of conditions that will provide you with rewards:

  • First time reward for promoting a Shimmer Esper to [5☆].
  • First time reward for promoting a Flow Esper to [5☆].
  • First time reward for promoting a Wind Esper to [5☆].

  • Reward for promoting a Flow Esper to [6☆] (repeatable).
  • Reward for promoting a Wind Esper to [6☆] (repeatable).

dislyte resonance

What is Divine Resonance?

Advancing an Esper using another card of the same Esper will also raise the Esper’s Resonance Star rating.

Each Resonance will evolve an Esper’s star into a Resonance Star, granting 4 Resonance Energy you can assign as you see fit.

Each point of Resonance Energy allows you to apply a percentage-based upgrade to that Esper’s stats, which you can assign between HP, ATK, and DEF.

Up to 6 Esper Resonances can be triggered per Esper.

The Energy an Esper gains from each Resonance is based on their base Star Rating:

  • Uncommon Espers: Each Resonance grants 3 Energy.
  • Rare Espers: Each Resonance grants 4 Energy.
  • Epic Espers: Each Resonance grants 5 Energy.
  • Legendary Espers: Each Resonance grants 6 Energy.

Upgrade Ability in Dislyte

How to Upgrade Ability (Skill)

  • You can upgrade an Esper’s ability with Rare/Epic/Legendary Abilimon, which will keep upgrading abilities randomly until all, abilities are maxed.
  • You cannot upgrade the ability with Abilimon once the ability level cap is reached!

Should I also use copies to star up the food?
What about the divinas, what is the best way to star up?
What is the difference between a divina and a food esper?


I have loads of spare espers but I can’t use any of them to upgrade any other espers, what am I doing wrong?


I’m having the same problem. I can’t select (tapping on it does nothing). Only Experimon show up as options.


I want to use espers as exp, instead of experimon. how can I use espers instead?


you should probably update that info On the guide above then.


Where can I get fodder/2 stars espers? I’m on chapter 6 and still haven’t received any…

Can starimon be leveled up? I have so many 3 star ones. It would be awesome to combine into a 4 star so they are usable for my higher characters

Jordan Gladwin

What do I use the starimon for ? I’ve got 20 of them but I have no idea how to use them or what to use them on.


it doesnt let me use starimon on mine. i use mobile ios. i can use starimon as a esper but not to upgrade anything. theres no star option besides resonances or quick promote. does it have to be full level?


i cant seem to find where the button to lvl up my skills


Is there a way to Star up the 3 stars Starimons to 4 and 5? or that’s not possible? because I have a lot and I was wondering if I can merge then into 4 and 5 to star up my other Esper’s.


how do you use the starimon to upgrade your espers?


Please can someone track how much xp is needed for each level? Idk whether one 75k worth experimon is perfect for lv. 1 –> 30 without having some get wasted.


How do you get 2-star (uncommon) espers? I can see that people have screenshots of them proving they are obtainable and there is an achievement for upgrading them to 3-star, but when I ask in chat people say they dont exist and when I google it all I can find are Dislyte tier lists. I dont think the devs would a mistake like that – leaving an unobtainable achievemnt in the game. How do you get them?


But then why are there still achievements for upgrading their star level then?


Why am I continuing to receive only 3star Espers when I have all of them in my collection? I hardly get anything epic or legendary…


Why do I see Espers above the max cap? 61 or higher
