MEGA MAN X DiVE Offline Guide to Currency Costs

Want to get a grasp on how much Zeni you need to unlock your characters? What about Element Metals for your weapons? This guide intends to give you a better understanding of how much currency you need to unlock, upgrade and complete almost every aspect of the game.

Preface: Limitations of this Guide

Though this guide is intended to be used as a reference for players who want a better idea of how much they currency they need to unlock items, complete their gallery, or reach the absolute maximum level of completion, there are some limitations as to what I have been able to calculate. These calculations were made from in-game observations, with no direct access to comprehensive statistics. Thus, while most of the calculations in this guide could be made in a single playthrough, due to making these calculations only when I was in the endgame, some variables will not be accounted for. So, to start, I must cover what will not be covered in this guide.

The following have been unaccounted for:

  • – The cost of levelling up every chip in the game from level 1 to 200 in Zeni
  • – The cost of levelling 5 chips from level 1 to level 80 in Zeni
  • – The cost of levelling up all armour slots to level 200 in Zeni
  • – The cost of levelling up all DiVE Triggers to their respective maximum levels in Zeni

Without further ado, on to the guide.

Total Zeni Cost Part 3: Exp

Note: This section calculates the amount of Zeni needed to level up cards and weapons to level 80 and 200 using the green exp programs available from the in-game shop. Realistically, you will have earned enough programs from playing the game to cut down on the costs in this section significantly, and with enough grinding may not need to use Zeni at all.

The total number of cards and weapons that you can level up are as follows:

  • 341 Cards
  • 97 Weapons

Exp gains between Cards and Weapons of different ranks are standardised. A Blue card and a Gold card take the same amount of exp to reach the same level. Exp gains from using cards to increase star rating differ according to card rarity.

Green exp programs cost 10,000 Z per 10 programs. Calculations here assume that only purchased programs are used.
