Symbiotic Strand
Cost: 3 Gene Points, Max: 2

  • Increases the mutation Set bonus by 10% per gene.
  • Base mutation set bonus (getting all 3 mutations in a set) is +30%
  • With both genes this goes to 50% per set.
  • Having all 36 mutations, 12 sets, means each gene gives you +120% DNA, or +240% if you have both.
  • DNA is based off [Queen Level DNA + Distance DNA] which you can see on the Ecdysis screen.
  • This bonus is added in to all other bonuses before calculating the [Mutation DNA] on the Ecdysis screen.
  • See this article for more information on DNA math.

Should I Get Them?

If your base DNA is 10000 then this represents an additional 12000 DNA per gene assuming you have all 36 mutations. That may sound like a lot but if your base DNA is 10000 you're probably getting 250000+ anyway. Is another 12000 worth the investment? That's up to you.
