What Are the Best Toppings for Licorice Cookie?

According to Cookie Run Kingdom Wiki, there are two best toppings for Licorice Cookie, they are:

1) Swift Chocolate

Swift Chocolate

Swift Chocolate is the standard setup for Licorice that can decrease the cooldown of Licorice’s skills from 14 seconds to 11 seconds. This is a recommended topping for Licorice Cookie. Swift Chocolate toppings are relatively straightforward to find.

If you can upgrade Licorice’s ATK before using the Swift Chocolate toppings, you can really reduce his 14 second base to 12 via upgrades. Well, those toppings can then take it further down to 10.

Swift Chocolate topping should be eaten before it melts. Its effect provides CD (Cooldown) benefits. On Cookie Run Kingdom, you will be able to farm Swift Chocolate topping on the following stages:

Searing Raspberry

Searing Raspberry is another topping option for Licorice Cookie. This topping can increase the DMG dealt by Licorice cookie during the battle. Unlike Swift Chocolate, Searing Raspberry toppings are harder to find to Epic classes, unless you have full access to levels 10-1 and above.

His base DMG rating is at 239% and it can then be amped up to 350% with a full Swift Chocolate build. Of course, it puts Licorice in the same league as popular DPS characters like Sorbet Shark.

It is known that Magic Cookies like Licorice can do various roles in Cookie Run Kingdom. Well, it is up to you to decide what value they want to gain from him in-game. In this case, a lower cooldown can really boost his utility in a PvP match, while a higher damage rating can make him a Guild Boss and PvE beast.

You may already know that all Cookies will start out with 1 Topping slot and get one more at their 15th, 20th, 25th and 30th levels for a total of 5 slots.

There are currently three kinds of toppings available on Cookie Run Kingdom including XS (Common), S (Rare), and M (Epic). Of course, the success rate of a Topping being upgraded will be dependent on the current Level of the Topping.

Furthermore, the success rate of upgrading a Topping is temporarily increased by a small percentage for each failed attempt until the Topping is upgraded to the next level successfully. In this case, the maximum number of Upgrade levels will also be dependent on the Rarity of the Topping. For example, XS can be upgraded to +6, S to +9 and M to +12.
