Get ready to farm Ellen's Ascension and Skill Materials to unlock her full potential when her banner arrives in Zenless Zone Zero's 1.0 Phase 1! A member of the mysterious Victoria Housekeeping Co., Ellen has captured the hearts of players with her unique shark-themed maid design and no-nonsense personality.

Ellen is a formidable Ice Attack unit that excels at dishing out single-target and AoE damage, punishing enemies with swift yet heavy-hitting icy attacks in her enhanced "Roaming State." To maximize Ellen's power and reach level 90, you'll need to collect specific Promotion Materials at every 10-level interval, alongside Skill Materials to boost her abilities' damage.

Ellen Promotion Materials List

Every 10 levels, your Agent will hit a level cap. To break through these caps, you'll need special Promotion materials specific to their attack type (Slash, Strike, and Pierce). Promoting an Agent strengthens their base stats, like ATK, DEF, and HP, while also gaining an ascension bonus to another stat at certain intervals, like CRIT Rate% or Impact.

Here's a breakdown of the total amount of Promotion materials required for Ellen:

  • Basic Offense Certification Seal x4
  • Pioneer's Certification Seal x30
  • Advanced Offense Certification Seal x32
  • Dennies x800,000

The following table shows the specific Promotion materials needed to ascend Ellen at each 10-level interval:

Ellen Promotion Materials
10 -> 20
Dennies x24,000 Basic Offense Certification Seal x4
20 -> 30
Dennies x56,000 Advanced Offense Certification Seal x12
30 -> 40
Dennies x120,000 Advanced Offense Certification Seal x20
40 -> 50
Dennies x200,000 Pioneer's Certification Seal x10
50 -> 60
Dennies x400,000 Pioneer's Certification Seal x20

Ellen Skills Materials List

Every Agent has five skills: Basic Attack, Dodge, Special Attack, Chain Attack, and Core Skill. These can be leveled up using Dennies and specific Skill materials corresponding to their element.

Ellen's unique skills and passives require specific materials to unlock and level up, enhancing her power significantly. To upgrade all of Ellen’s skills, you will need the following Skill materials:

  • Basic Freeze Chip x10
  • Advanced Freeze Chip x30
  • Specialized Freeze Chip x100
  • Hamster Cage Pass x5

In Zenless Zone Zero, all materials can be farmed in the VR Device within the Random Play Store. The beauty of the VR Device lies in its customizability! You can select enemies that drop specific materials you need for Ellen, gathering everything you need in one run.

Offense Certification Seals & Freeze Chips

Combat Simulation is your key area for farming essential upgrade materials. These materials are crucial for promoting Agents, modifying W-Engines, and enhancing character skills. Enemy lineups determine the rewards you receive, including Ellen's Promotion Materials (Certification Seals: Basic/Advanced/Pioneer's) and Skill Materials (Freeze Chips: Basic/Advanced/Specialized).

Higher Dimensional Data - Murderous Obituary

Expert Challenges combine elements of Combat Simulation and Reckless Challenge. Here, you'll encounter elite enemies with increased difficulty. These challenges are vital for advanced character development, rewarding you with the materials needed to upgrade Ellen's core skills.

These coffees increase the drop rate for specific materials (e.g., Ascension materials), allowing you to target Ellen's Promotion and Skill materials more effectively. Each cup of coffee also provides 60 free Battery Cost, which is the resource needed to embark on VR challenges.
