Punishing Gray Raven is a visually-stunning, action-packed ARPG set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the Corrupted. Memories are akin to accessories; you can equip them to your constructs to give them stat bonuses and beneficial effects. In our Memory Basics Guide, we will discuss the various aspects surrounding Memories in Punishing Gray Raven.
What are Memories?
Memories are basically accessories that you can equip to your constructs to further increase their stats and combat capacity. Each construct has 6 memory slots, and a memory can only be equipped on its corresponding slot location. Memories that boost HP and CRIT can be slotted in Slots 01-03. Memories equipped that grant ATK and DEF occupy the bottom row (slots 04-06). Memories used by constructs can’t be equipped by compositers; the same goes the other way around.
Similar to weapons, you can enhance, overlock, and resonate Memories to further increase their stats. These processes however don't change the values of their bonus set effects. Please refer to our dedicated Memory Training Guide for further discussion of these missions for improving memories.
Memory Set Effects
Memories also have Set Effects. These are special effects that get activated once you have 2 or 4 of the same memory equipped to your construct. Their slot positions are irrelevant; as long as you have the required number of pieces of the same memory, the set effect will remain active. At any given time, you can have 3 set effects (2-2-2) or 2 set effects (4-2) active with all memory slots occupied.
It is recommended to at least have a good 4-pc set effect that will complement the construct’s abilities and combat style with the remaining slots occupied by memories with a 2-pc memory set. As a general rule of thumb, it’s ideal to equip memories with set effects that will complement the constructs’ abilities. For example, memories with healing bonuses are pretty much worthless when equipped on attacker-type constructs. Compositer memories have powerful 6-pc effects so activating that set effect is recommended.
How to Obtain More Memories?
Memories can be obtained from various sources. Common memories that can be used as fodder can be obtained from completing mission stages.
* Some higher-quality memories can be obtained as rewards from one-time missions or tasks.
* You can purchase 5-star and 6-star memories in the Shop > Cogs Factory but it will require a huge amount of cogs.
* Complete Memory Rescue stages.
* Buy from the War Zone > War Shop
The best method so far is by farming the last stage (AE-4) of the Combat Supply resource map. This will require 30 serum per run but has the chance to drop a random 6-star memory. You’re also guaranteed to get a 6-star memory after clearing the stage 8 times.
