What are Uru?
Welcome my fellow MFF brethren to a hopefully entertaining and simple guide to the mysterious system of Urus. So, let us begin at the beginning. Urus are little nuggets that customize your characters. Urus comes in a variety of Types: energy attack, physical attack, ignore defense, attack speed, critical rate, etc. But that is not all, they can be of various ranks of strength (normal to mythical). So, they are like crack rocks for your character and allow for fun customization and better builds.
How do I find Uru?
where can I get some Uru? Well, you could see that shady dude with the big trench coat, but it may be easier if you farm those Asgardian Story Mission Chapters. Check out the below table to help you get all your favorite flavors of Uru is available on which stage.
|Skill CD Reduction||12-1||Blue|
|Attack Speed||11-3, 11-7||Red|
|Energy Defense||11-1, 11-5||Blue|
|Physical Defense||11-2, 11-6||Red|
How do I equip Uru?
you don’t see any Uru tab in the character sheet?!?!? Well, uru’s are like a whole new level of gear customization. So, first select a gear piece, and then you will see a wheel with 5 circles. Under there is a equip uru spot. “But wait man, I don’t see it you lie!!” Now is probably a good time to explain, that Uru system is designed for end-game customization. So to be able to equip one you need to be shield level 60 and the gear must be maxed level (+20). To equip uru in all slots requires shield level 70. Just to see the menu, the gear must be +15. “But I just started, and I want to play with uru-crack!” Yell at net marble… but in all seriousness, this is a very costly endeavor as you will soon see, so it is probably best to wait anyhow. Oh, and read up on amplification of Uru slots before equipping anything, because there is just so much to know, ya’know?
Uru Stats by Tier
Uru-crack comes in various tiers, the higher the tier the greater the values. Check it out.

How do I upgrade Uru?
So, the short answer is with gold, lots and lots of gold. The more complete answer is with gold, specific Uru desired, Unrefined Uru (UU), gear up kits (GUK), dimension debris (DD), and norn stones (red, green, blue, or purple-see first table). The quantities of resources vary depending on current uru tier. However, what net marble doesn’t tell you about it is the FAILURE rate. Yup, you heard me, you can fail at life and now you can fail at Uru. AND, the higher you go, the higher the failure rate. Oh, and the best part, if you fail you lose your developed urus and upgrade materials! Yay, more resource loss!
As I mentioned earlier, the higher you go the higher the failure rate.
|Tier to Tier||Success||Failure|
|Normal to Uncommon||90%||10%|
|Uncommon to Rare||85%||15%|
|Rare to Heroic||75%||25%|
|Heroic to Legendary||50%||50%|
|Legendary to Mythical||15%||85%|
So, now that you have all your Uru slots filled with your shiny Uru-crack, you can make your high higher! Uru amplification augments the Uru slots themselves on a gear piece, for another bonus! Essentially, each amplified Uru slots adds another ~130% of the equipped Uru’s value. For example, you have a mythical physical attack Uru equipped in an amplified Uru slot, you get an added bonus of +110 on top of the +82 to your physical attack, for a grand total of +192 physical attack bonus for just that one slot. Recall that all your slots need to be filled to amplify, which means only shield lvl 70 junkies can get this high. Ok, so look at my handy dandy table showing amplification values for mythical and legendary tiers.
|Skill CD Reduction||115||153||268||152||203||355||185||246||431|
Uru-slot amplification is an RNG based process because you know you want more RNG slot machine of misfortune. You pay 30,000 per shot at getting all your slots on a gear amplified. Also, you need to have your Uru slots filled to be eligible for amplification. Yup, that’s right, you can drop all kinds of mad cash amplifying all those hard earned Uru’s.
TIP: If you are not going for broke, with all legendary Urus with fully amplified gear slots, you can get tricksy to best use your precious chosen Urus. Before, amplifying your Urus slots, equip normal Urus that you don’t care about (likely random defense Uru) and roll until you get the desired amplified slot number for your ranked up Urus, and then equip the chosen Urus in those amplified slots.
What Uru should I use/farm?
everything that is tweaking your character, there are no hard and fast rules because you will have ISOs, gear selections, cards, alliance bonuses, and obelisks all enhancing your character. However, there are some general guidelines for Uru use, but I would refer to up-to-date character guides for character-specific Uru recommendations.
Attack Urus specific to the characters type
Make sure you are Skill Cooldown capped
Make sure you are Ignore Defense capped
Consider animations and iframes to determine if attack speed would be useful or detrimental
Consider character natural crit/crit damage capabilities and maximize effect
Consider characters healing and hp scenario and maximize effect
Consider characters specific mechanics and see if it can be enhanced with Urus
