PvE/Dungeon A guide to the PNA system.
#1
An introduction to the PNA system.

In story terms, I cannot tell you for certain because I do not read Korean. (However, Choi Bona does in fact, say "Phase Nucleic Acid" in english. So at least we know what it stands for.) But if I had to guess, in the war against the Dimensionals, UNION has launched a counterattack by opening a portal to their dimension. And as UNION scientists have collected more and more parts from the Dimensionals, they decided to experiment with inserting Dimensional genes into Closer agents to boost their power. Because things like that NEVER go wrong, right?

In simple gameplay terms, PNA is a system that you level up through its own EXP in order to aquire points to use to assign stat boosts to available slots. Unlocking these slots also yield a significant amount of SP. (Enough to max out all the skills you use and start investing into passives.)

How to unlock the PNA system.

After hitting level 50 and completing the Epiloge area's story quests, you will unlock the Episode 58 quests. First you will be sent to UNION's secret base to talk to Jung Doyeon. (The woman that sells skill cubes and handles costume upgrades and tuning.) She will send you back to collect 5 boss drops from the E-4 boss. Once you have done that, the new scientist NPC Choi Bona (Blue haired twintail scientist.) Will have a new quest for you. She asks you for 100 of the green DNA strand items.

Completion of the quest will allow you to access the PNA UI and you will now gain PNA EXP upon completing any Epilogue or Plane Gate stage. You will immediately go from Level 1 to Level 2 from your first run.

You must save changes in order to close the window.

When you first unlock the system, it will look like this:

The blue slots cost 100000/200000/300000 credits (Cost increasing with each row.) to unlock and give 1 SP each. They can be unlocked at PNA Level 2. You must unlock them from left to right. You will be unable to unlock the ones below the yellow slots until you unlock those yellow slots.

The yellow slots cost 150000 (250000 for the second row.) credits to unlock and give 2 SP each. They can be unlocked at PNA Level 7. (Along with the remaining blue slots.)

The red slots cost 500000 to unlock and give 3 SP each. They can be unlocked at PNA Level 18.

You can buy additional pages for 500000 credits each. Pages allow you to save multiple PNA strain setups and quickly switch between them.

PNA strains.

PNA strains come in three categories: Offensive, defensive, and utility. Offensive and defensive strains speak for themselves. Utility strains consist of stats such as MP, Cooldown Reduction, Movement Speed, Bonus Drop Rate/Credits/EXP, and Phase Power Charge Rate/Duration/Bonus Damage.

Offensive strains will have red text in the circled area. Defensive blue. And utility strains are green.

There are three levels of PNA strains: Blue, yellow, and red.

Blue strains cost 2 points to assign. Yellows cost 3. Reds cost 4.

By PNA level 70, you will have enough points to fill every slot.

There is a limit to how many strains of any given category you can have. For blue strains, you can have up to six of any category. (And to fill every slot, you must assign six of each.) For yellows and reds, the limit is only two of any category. (For yellows, you must assign two of each to fill each slot.)

PNA strains can be obtained as boss drops in Plane Gate stages, purchased from Choi Bona, or bought off of the Black Market.

PNA strain items come in the three different categories. Right clicking them will yield a random strain for the level and category. You can gain duplicates of the same strain and they will all be stored in the strain list.

There are quality levels like any other item, so you can obtain strains with higher values for the same stat.

The lowest level white strains can be purchased from Choi Bona.
The middle level green strains can be obtained through drops and one repeatable quest. (5 highest level purple crystals for one blue strain. You can choose which category.)
The highest level blue strains can be obtained by through drops and one time quests.

List of Strains.

Nope. PNA EXP rewards cannot be boosted.

You can tackle the higher difficulties for more per run, but that's it.
