Hydras Mutagens

Mutagens?

Mutagens Grant a Passive ability in battle when mutated to a monster, 5 Star DNA is required to to be used as a transform ingredient.

Every Monster has an ultra monster mutagen available in a lucky roll of the Mutagen Creator for 50Element X. Second mutagens have been released during but where only available for a set period of an event (Generally 2 weeks) unless you acquired one during the event you will have to wait until SMASH releases them again, this has been confirmed it will happen, just not when.


  • Ultra Mutage: 10% Extra Medals Rewarded During a Battle.'

 

DNA is what is required to be collected before your able to mutate a monster, you will need 1 Platinum StarPlatinum StarPlatinum StarPlatinum StarPlatinum Star DNA, a Platinum or Legendary Monster and the Mutagen.

As with the Hydra itself acquiring the DNA can take even longer, especially to get to a 5* DNA,, i would highly recommend keeping all DNA for the hydra, at least until you have a 5* Capsule.

Head over to DNA Guide for more information on prices & Usage.
