No air summon strategy

I saw a screenshot in one of the Windrunner groups about a fascinating strategy using no air summon at all and using a level 10 gold Runestone of Yoke (Increase Wing Star scores, +50 points) and Runestone of Happiness (Character Wing Star multiplier, x40).

The way it seems to work is that the air summon tends to collects most the wing stars, especially after a start dash going into fever mode. The multiplier is so high that it seems to outweigh the benefit of having an air summon at all.

I read that it works best with Kylie, Scarlet, and Luke. With Kylie, I believe that floating wingstars collected right after getting into fever mode counts with her fever multiplier.

For Scarlet, it's possible that it might still be counted with her dash...?

But why Luke? I don't see anything particularly helpful about Luke for this strategy. Perhaps he is holding some sort of item that was picked up during the start dash.

I don't have the runestones for this strategy so I can't test it but it's fascinating how with all these relics, people are getting creative with different combinations to get high scores.

That's brilliant!  Whoever thought of it deserves a cookie.

This is the screenshot that I saw. I was quite impressed! (...It's also better than any score I have...)

On a white tiger too!

Luke is awesome for this for two reasons, he has a Wing Star + 50% modifier and Start Dash picks up items as you fly over them.  So his modifier comes into effect pretty quickly and usually remains in effect for the duration of the flight.  Plus, when you have the gold rune that grants wing star +50 pts.  All you need is Tapio to get 300k+ pts just by hitting a button.  No need for Start Dash + Tapio.

Kylie, Scarlet, and Chloe also have a +50% wing star modifier.  I wonder why Chloe isn't mentioned, I guess her star ability doesn't bring in as many points as the other mentions.  For that matter, I wonder about Kylie.  Your observation might be right, but I wonder if you get enough stars from that brief moment.

Luke is also good because he has an x4 Item score ability, which further adds into the wingstar multiplier. Scarlet's pretty much the same as well, but she requires Scarlet's Crown at max level to be used as well. Kylie requires additional level 10 Tapio/any ground pet, to use her to the fullest.

Chloe's star ability doesn't affect wing star directly. This strategy is about gaining direct points from wingstars. That's why she isn't used in this strategy. Kylie's used because often, right before a fever lots of wing stars accumulates, which she picks up. So the multiplier will further increase to x50.

What a lovely boost from Kylie.

So the multipliers are additive?  Like Luke will get a x44 multiplier and not a x160 multiplier when combined with his special ability?

Yeah. Kylie's one of the strongest character if played properly with a strategy. Even a basic strategy like level 10 legends (both) + Kylie's bracelet works wonders for her.

Yeah, they add-up. I wish they could multiply instead tbh lol x160 wing star is heavenly XDXD Kylie's would be x400, which is omfg XD

I'm pretty sure every S-Rank character has a +50% Character Wing Star bonus, not just Kylie, Scarlet, Luke, and Chloe...

Not every character. Stella, Leo, Cony & Lily don't have it. I have them all (except Luke).
