Axie is an NFT creature which is used for:
- battles with other players and mobs;
- exploring the world and collecting resources;
Battles in Axie Infinity are based on a card game: players use 3 Axies and cards with their abilities. The winner is the one who defeated all the enemy creatures.
There are 2 battle modes: Adventure Mode — battles with chimeras and Arena Mode — battles with players.
Each Axie has 4 indicators: health, morale, skill, speed, and 6 body parts: eyes, ears, horns, mouth, back, tail.
Horns, mouth, back and tail determine which cards a creature can use in battle. Each part adds metrics depending on its class. There are 9 classes in total: Bad, Bird, Beast, Plant, Reptile, Aquatic, Mech, Dawn, and Dusk. Classes have their own characteristics and affect each other in different ways. This is important to consider when buying Axie.
Axis’s breeding occurs by crossing two adults who are not close relatives. The new Axie takes after a combination of the traits of the parents. All traits fall out depending on which gene contains them, breeding new creatures is a real science.
To control the population, each Axie can be used in breeding only seven times. Children can be kept or sold on the marketplace, in both of forms: an egg and an adult. The egg hatches five days after emergence.
How to make money in Axie Infinity
Earning in the game is divided into two main directions: getting SLP and selling Axie. Each of them has its pros and cons. Let’s take a closer look.
Getting SLP from Battles
Updates in Axie Infinity take place in season’s format. During the last nineteenth season SLP was easily collected. Spending three hours, any user was able to earn seventy five tokens. SLPs were given for completing daily tasks and performing 5 battles in Adventure Mode, in addition, they were paid for victories in Arena Mode.
On 04.02.22 the season 20 has begun, the reward system has been completely changed: SLP is no longer given for daily tasks and battles in Adventure Mode, now they can only be obtained in battles in Arena Mode.
The amount of SLP that can be earned by playing Arena Mode depends on the MMR rating among players. The higher, the more coins are given for a victory.
To win battles, you need to competently assemble a team from Axie, select in consideration to their traits and characteristics.
Players have energy indicators, they recover daily, but without them it is impossible to participate in the battle. For beginners, it is recommended to distribute energy 50/50 between Arena Mode and Adventure Mode in order to gain both level and rating.
This option with earning SLP will not bring income. At the exchange rate, at the time of writing, 1 coin costs $ 0.2. With such an income, it is difficult even to repel investments. Experienced players advise to start with a budget of $ 1000 to buy the first three Axes. Otherwise, they will be too weak for battles.
The minimum budget that is needed to enter the game is $ 60-100 — this is the cost of three Axies from the low price segment. Under such conditions, it will be possible to study the game from the inside, but not to earn.
Due to the ability of breeding Axies, there is a way to earn on selling received creatures. In that case, user need to choose parents whose characteristics might give a good combination for a newborn Axie. There are some difficulties. First, it is complicative to find suitable parents. In order to assume what the result will be, there are:
- an app, which helps to find out genes, the developers recommend it because this information cannot be seen on marketplace;
- calculator site for determining the progeny of two Axies.
The second nuance is the commission for breeding in AXS and in SLP. Since Axis has limitations in the number of children, the fewer times left, the higher the price in SLP becomes, the commission in ASS remains unchanged.
|Number of children||Fee in AXS||Cost in SLP|
For parents without children, the commission will be $65.
Assume that the child will stand as 1 parent. To reach zero, the parent’s price must be at least $65.
Two parents will cost from $130, plus the marketplace commission will rise to 5.25%, from 07.03.22.
The marketplace commission for the purchase of two parents will be from $6.5.
The commission for the sale of a child will be from $3.25.
It turns out that the minimum cost of creating and selling a new Axia without profit will be from $204.75, without taking into account the commission for deposit and withdraw funds from Ronin Wallet.
To register in Axis Infinity for the purpose of breeding Axie, the minimum entry amount will be $230, taking into account the new commission from March 7.
This option is more profitable than getting SLP from winning battles, but it is more risky, there is no guarantee that Axie will be sold.
