Mags are artificial life forms that assist you during quests by occasionally attacking enemies, providing support effects, and most importantly raising your stats.
Acquiring Your First Mag
In order to acquire a Mag, a character must reach level 5 and complete the マグライセンス授与申請試練 (Mag License Application) given by Koffie. She is located at the Quest Counter in the Gate Area lobby.
Raising a Mag
Feeding, Leveling and Stats
In order to grow your Mag, you'll need to feed it various items. As you feed it, its stats will grow depending on the type and rarity of the item. But would recommend feeding your mag Food Devices. Food Devices can be obtain at the Photon Drop Shop on the 2nd Floor of the Shop Area. Your Mag's stats will add to your own stats, and can be crucial for equipping higher rarity equipments. When choosing an item to feed your Mag, you can see how it will affect its stats by hovering over the item.
If you accidentally level the wrong skill, don't fret too much. There is a (Mag Level Down Device) at the Excube Exchange Shop that will lower a skill by one level.

Mags need energy to perform actions during quests, indicated by a percentage bar on its stats screen. You'll need to feed the Mag in order to raise its energy level. Up to three items can be fed at 0% to fill the bar. You won't be able to feed the Mag again until its energy drops below a certain percentage. The energy level will gradually decrease over time, even while you're offline.
An Auto Action is unlocked when your Mag reaches its second form. These are the attacks a Mag will perform automatically during battle. The action it learns is dependent on the form it takes. There are many different actions available, covering striking, ranged, and tech attacks. Auto Actions can be changed with special devices you can trade for at the Excube Exchange Shop.
Once your Mag has reached level 200, it will unlock an SP Auto Action. These special moves will only activate when a boss enemy is nearby. There are four SP Auto Actions, including:
SP Striking / Clobber: Performs a series of slashes that surround the player.
SP Ranged / Vulcan: Rapidly fires multiple shots at an enemy.
SP Tech / Focus: Reduces the player's Technic charging times.
SP Dexterity / Iron Wall: Summons a shield that reduces damage from enemies.
These can also be swapped with devices available at the Excube Exchange Shop.
Trigger Actions are supportive abilities that a Mag performs under certain circumstances. They can heal the player, provide invincibility, produce healing items, and even revive you. Each type of Mag starts off with a different action. Mags begin with three slots for Trigger Actions, and can obtain up to eight through leveling and unlocking them with a special device.
The fourth slot is unlocked at level 30, and the fifth at level 100. Slots six through eight require the Mag Support Extend Device, available only through the AC Scratch.
The Mag's overall level will raise with each stat level gain, up to a maximum of 200. At certain levels, your Mag will evolve, taking on a new appearance. The form it takes depends on its highest stat, and affects the type of attack it uses in battle and its Photon Blast. But more on those later.
The first evolution takes place at level 30, with four possible variations. The second evolution occurs at level 100, with three to four variations for each of the first evolution's.
Mag Evolution Devices
You can change the appearance of your Mag when using Mag Evolution Devices. Before you can change your Mag's appearance, your Mag must reach level 100 first. These Mag Evolution Devices can be obtain by completing events that are being held, or bought with real money. Players will often sell these Mag Evolution Devices on the Player Shop, which is like an auction. But be warned, some of these devices will be priced really high.
