▌Gameplay Adjustments and Optimizations
1. Stage Adjustments
I. Story Stage
We are iterating the design of Story Stages to offer players a better, richer gaming experience as they sail through the stages.
◇ Added Star Rating and Star Rating rewards for Story Stages
The following 3-Star requirements will be introduced in the next version:
3-Star: Clear the stage with 0 Esper deaths
2-Star: Clear the stage with only 1 Esper death
1-Star: Clear the stage with more than 1 Esper death
Battle failure won’t grant Star Rating.
Note: If players have already cleared a Story Stage before the update, it will be counted as a 3-Star clearance, and players can claim the 3-Star reward directly.
◇ Adjusted unlock requirements for different difficulties of Story Stage
The Hard mode unlocks after completing Chapter 4 in Easy, and Purgatory unlocks after completing Chapter 4 in Hard.
◇ Added reward for the first clearance and adjusted the chapter rewards for some chapters.
II. Removed Practice Stage and added Sonic Rift
After the update, the Practice Stage will be removed from all chapters. Its gameplay will be incorporated into the new Sonic Rift, which is designed to offer players a more integrated experience of Esper growth.
◇ Unlock condition
Sonic Rift will unlock after clearing Story 2-4 on Normal Difficulty.
◇ Adjusted entrance
After the update, players can access Sonic Rift through home screen – Trials
◇ Sonic Rift gameplay overview
The difficulty of Sonic Rift increases (the level of enemies increases) as the players progress. Clear the current stage and acquire the required number of stars from Story Stage to unlock the next stage.
Sonic Rift stages require the players to complete the battle within a set number of turns. Players should defeat all waves of enemies within the set amount of turns. When reaching the maximum number of turns, if enemies are not defeated, or all Espers are killed, or if the player quits voluntarily or is logged out, this attempt will be considered a failure, and 1 stamina will be deducted.
◇ Rewards adjustment
Previously in Practice Stage, the Esper experience rewards were directly given to the deployed Espers. Now, most of the rewards will be given in the form of Experimon.
III. Ritual Miracle adjustments
◇ Adjusted Boss abilities
In this update, we are adjusting the Boss abilities in Ritual Miracle and dividing the 16 levels of difficulty into 5 tiers. We are making these changes to smooth out the acceleration in difficulties and make Boss stages more accessible.
To encourage players to use more diversified formations to beat different Bosses, in difficulty Hard and above, Espers that counter the Boss’ attribute will deal greater damage. In the Purgatory stages, added punishment towards Espers, whose elemental class does not counter the Boss’ attribute.
Adjustments to Ritual Miracle Boss:
Kronos: Reduced Kronos’ DMG and RESIST under all difficulties and deleted the Dispel effect of Blessing Tablet.
— We want to offer a bigger error margin to players, and we hope to see more negative effects on Kronos.
Apep: Reduced Apep’s basic ability DMG under all difficulties. While Toxic Detonation still increases the DMG when the target has debuffs, the increase is smaller. Toxic Detonation will be able to dispel players’ buffs under all difficulties. Under difficulty Ordinary and above, Apep gains HP Recovery when casts Toxic Detonation. We also redesigned the ability Blessing Tablet, which can now cast Poison toward all enemies.
— We hope players can opt for more diversified formations when attacking Apep. We also want the focus to be countering the Poison effect rather than handling Apep’s insane DMG.
Fafnir: Blessing Tablet will no longer grant Immunity to the Boss. A new passive ability, Dragon’s Reversal, is added to Fafnir. Fafnir will gain Andvari’s Shard periodically. Every stack of Andvari’s Shard grants C. DMG. Shards can be dispelled or stolen.
— These changes are designed to encourage players to use Dispel and Steal to get more favorable results.
These adjustments are subject to changes. Please check the final content in-game after the update.
◇ Adjusted the relic drop probability (in terms of the relic level and numbers of secondary attributes) at different difficulties. For difficulties below 16, it is now harder to acquire relics of a certain quality. Difficulty 16 remains unchanged.
◇ Adjusted stamina consumed at different difficulties:
Difficulties 1 to 4: Consume 6 stamina
Difficulties 5 to 7: Consume 8 stamina
Difficulties 8 to 11: Consume 10 stamina
Difficulties 12 to 13: Consume 12 stamina
Difficulties 14 to 16: Consume 15 stamina
IV. Adjusted stamina consumed at Desolate Lands and Sonic Miracle
◇ Desolate Lands will consume 15 stamina.
◇ Adjusted stamina consumed at different difficulties of Sonic Miracle:
Difficulties 1 to 2: Consume 6 stamina
Difficulties 3 to 5: Consume 8 stamina
Difficulties 6 to 7: Consume 10 stamina
Difficulty 8: Consumes 12 stamina
◇ Removed the setting where the Stamina cost of Desolate Lands is halved for a certain period.
V. Added limit on the number of battle turns
To avoid the extreme incidences of battles running too long and can’t be concluded, now in Story Stage, Sonic Miracle, Ritual Miracle, Cube Miracle, and Infinite Miracle, if the limit of battle turns is reached (the exact limit is determined by the type and difficulty of the stage) and players haven’t won, this challenge will count as defeat.
2. Espers acquisition sources adjustment
Considering this update’s adjustment and addition to the game content, to ensure players’ reliable sources to acquire suitable Espers to clear stages, we are making the following changes and additions to the methods of acquiring certain Espers.
*Note: players who have created their characters before the next update (version 3.1.7) will be able to acquire Sally (Sif) at Echo even before clearing Spatial Tower 100F.
For more details, please refer to the Espers Acquisition Sources Adjustment Overview under the announcement section.
3. Esper Fusion adjustments
The following adjustments will be made to Esper Fusion in this update:
◇ Changed target Espers
Changed the target Espers to be acquired through Esper Fusion from Fabrice (Freyr) and Gabrielle (Njord) to Alexa (Aphrodite) and Lucas (Apollo).
◇ Changed fusion materials
In addition to the Ascension level requirement, main Esper materials must also match the Resonance requirement. Selected Esper materials won’t disappear when fused. However, secondary Esper materials can’t be fused again to get the same Esper’s Materia.
4. Bounties adjustments
◇ Increased the chance of getting Nexus Crystal and reduced the chance of getting Gold in blue Bounty Missions.
◇ Replaced the leveling-up and Star promotion missions with other missions of the same color.
◇ When going from the Bounty Mission clue to the Story Stage selection screen, added tips indicating which Story Stage to go to.
5. Cube Miracle adjustments
◇ Cube Miracle Difficulty 1 now contains two floors. This difficulty will no longer support Raid.
◇ After defeating the enemies, the former rewards that drop at random chances (Starimon, Experimon, Nexus Crystal, and Gold Record) are replaced by guaranteed Relic. The higher the Cube Miracle difficulty, the stronger the Relic.
◇ Cube Stone will drop from Difficulty 5 and above.
◇ Current progress at Cube Miracle will be reset after the update.
6. Holobattle adjustment
◇ The formation used in the most recent Holobattle will automatically become the default formation for the next battle.
7. Adjusted the starting HP in PVP
Increased the starting HP for both sides in Point War, Holobattle, Casual Matches, and other PVP gameplays. The increased HP, however, will not affect the HP-based DMG.
▌Esper growth-related Changes and Optimizations
1. Adjusted max level
I. Increased Squad level cap
◇ After the update, the max level for Squad is increased from 60 to 100.
◇ Leveling up the Squad increases the Stamina cap. Each leveling up also grants Stamina rewards.
II. Changed the XP requirement for leveling up Squad and Esper
◇ After the update, leveling up accounts and Espers will require higher XP.
III. Added level cap for Espers
◇ After the update, Espers’ max level is subject to a player’s Squad level.
Squad Lvl 1 – 9: Esper caps at Lvl 15
Squad Lvl 10 – 14: Esper caps at Lvl 20
Squad Lvl 15 – 39: Esper max level = Squad level + 10
Squad Lvl 40 and above: Esper caps at Lvl 60
◇ Note: If currently the Squad level is below 40, yet some Espers’ levels are higher than the cap set in the new rules, their current levels will be carried forward instead of being reverted to the cap. However, before raising the cap through leveling up the Squad, these Espers will not be able to level up.
2. Starimon adjustments
◇ Removed Starimon levels:
Starimon is set to Lvl 1. Cannot be deployed or upgraded.
Starimon’s current XP will be converted into Experimon, which will appear in the inventory automatically after the update.
◇ Added Starimon fuse and disassemble
3-Star Starimon x5 can be fused into 4-Star Starimon x1.
4-Star Starimon x5 can be fused into 5-Star Starimon x1.
One 4-Star Starimon can be disassembled into 3-Star Starimon x4; one 5-Star Starimon can be disassembled into 4-Star Starimon x4
3. Resonance adjustments
I. Adjusted the Resonance mechanism
◇ To improve players’ gaming experience and optimize the formation strategies, in response to the possibility of getting the same Esper repeatedly (from Echo, Esper Ripple, etc.), we are making the below adjustments to Resonance and Divine Sequencer:
◇ When getting an Esper repeatedly, the redundant Esper will be automatically converted into Esper Materia. When getting 6 or more repeated Esper Materia, those will be automatically converted into Dioprism or Monoprism to be used in the Divine Sequencer Shop.
◇ Use an Esper’s Materia to conduct Resonance for that Esper. Each Resonance costs 1 target Esper’s Materia.
◇ Each Resonance unlocks a part of the track for that Esper’s Solo. A target Esper’s Solo will be unlocked after 6 Resonances.
Updated Esper Solos of Lucas (Apollo), Li Ling (Nezha), Tang Xuan (Sun Wukong), Donar (Thor), Everett (Tyr), Sally (Sif), and Yun Chuan (Yang Jian). Other Espers’ Solos will be released gradually in future updates.
◇ Each Esper can conduct up to 6 Resonances. Each Resonance unlocks Divine Gates that boost an Esper’s powers through higher stats or stronger abilities.
◇ Here are the details about the Divine Gates of all the Espers: Divine Gates
II. About the repeated Espers acquired before the update:
◇ When there are multiple copies of the same Esper, the one with the highest ability upgrades is considered the “original copy”. If several copies have the same level of ability upgrades, the “original copy” will be determined based on the following order: Resonance, Star Rating, Level, Ascension Level, and the time of acquisition. When the sum of the number of copies of the same Esper (original and redundant) and their Resonance levels is no larger than 7, the redundant copies and their Resonance will be transformed into a corresponding number of Esper Materia. All the resources invested in the redundant copies will be reimbursed. Every repeated Esper also grants a Starimon of that Esper’s initial Star Rating.
◇ When the sum of the number of copies (original and redundant) and their Resonance levels is larger than 7, the first 7 redundancies will be handled as mentioned above. The rest of the excessive copies and their Resonance will be converted into Dioprism or Monoprism according to the original Star Rating of the Esper, and all the previously invested resources will be reimbursed.
◇ Redundant copies from Esper Fusion
Fabrice (Freyr) and Gabrielle (Njord): Same as the first two rules listed above, which apply to common Espers.
Odette (Skadi) and Everett (Tyr): if the sum of the number of copies (original and redundant) and their Resonance levels is larger than 7, all the Fusion and Esper growth materials invested into the redundancies beyond 7 will be reimbursed. If not, the rules for other Espers also apply here.
◇ The reimbursed resources and relics removed from repeated Espers will appear in your inventory after the update.
◇ If your formations in Point War, Holobattle, or other activities contain copies of repeated Espers (which will be converted after the update), please adjust your formations timely.
4. Divine Sequencer Shop adjustments
After the update, when getting 6 or more repeated Esper Materia, those will be automatically converted into Dioprism or Monoprism. Players won’t need to manually disassemble the repeated Esper Materia.
Dioprism and Monoprism can be used to redeem new items in the Divine Sequencer Shop, including Sander shards, Dhalia shards, Lu Yi shards, Asenath shards, Legendary Starimon, and more.
5. Relic changes
◇ After the update, the Star Rating of relics will be removed, and levels will be added.
There will be 9 tiers of relic levels. The cap of enhancement level and the number of secondary attributes are determined by a relic’s tier.
The rarity of different Relics is determined by their levels. Relics of different levels have different Main Attribute and Secondary Attribute caps.
The rarity of different Relics is determined by their levels and is classified by different colors. Relics of different levels have different Main Attribute and Secondary Attribute caps.
Lvl 5: +0 enhancement level, 0 secondary attribute
Lvl 10: +0 enhancement level, 0-1 secondary attribute
Lvl 15: +3 enhancement levels, 0-2 secondary attributes
Lvl 20: +6 enhancement levels, 0-3 secondary attributes
Lvl 25: +9 enhancement levels, 1-3 secondary attributes
Lvl 30: +12 enhancement levels, 1-4 secondary attributes
Lvl 40: +12 enhancement levels, 1-4 secondary attributes
Lvl 50: +15 enhancement levels, 2-4 secondary attributes
Lvl 60: +15 enhancement levels, 2-4 secondary attributes
Note: After the update, the Star Ratings of players’ relics will be converted into levels. Current enhancement levels and secondary attributes won’t be affected.
◇ Adjusted the effect of Tyranny of Zeus Set: when dealing damage through multiple hits, the chance of Stunning the target slightly decreases with every hit.
◇ In Relic Fusion, Basic, Advanced, and Elite Fusion will grant Lvl 40, Lvl 50, and Lvl 60 Relics, respectively.
6. Adjusted inventory
Changed Esper Vault into Upgrade Materials to store materials for Esper growth (Abilimon, Starimon, Experimon, and ascension materials). Espers will no longer be stored under this section. In the meantime, Abilimon, Starimon, and Experimon will not be shown on the scrolling list of Espers.
▌Esper Balance Adjustments
In correspondence with the stage adjustments in version 3.1.7, to give every Esper a clearer and more unique role to open up more possibilities in formations and strategies, we will adjust the abilities, captain ability, and stats of some Espers after the update.
1. Abilities changes
◇ Changed Ability 2 Crimson Protection from passive to active
◇ Revives and heals all fallen allies. Heals their HP and increases their AP. Each revived ally extends this ability’s Cooldown. Grants Shield to all allies and increases all allies’ AP. This ability’s Cooldown is not affected by anything.
◇ Ascension: Upon Cecilia’s death, if this ability is not under cooldown, casts it.
◇ Ability 3 Wrath of the World: Upon successfully clearing enemy AP, the chance of inflicting Stun increases, and this ability’s cooldown shortens.
◇ Ability 2 Universal: now also grants Recovery to all allies.
◇ Ability 1 Wavebreaker: Changed single attack into multistage attacks. The total DMG of this ability remains the same.
◇ Ability 3 Rush: Changed single attack into multistage attacks. The total DMG of this ability remains the same.
◇ Added new effect to Reload! Attack! (cannot dispel): Transfers debuff(s) to the target while attacking.
◇ Ability 1 Queen’s Blessing: Changed multistage attacks into a single attack. The total DMG of this ability and other effects remain the same.
◇ Added new effect to Ability 2 Flames of Fury: Casts Sear on the target after attacking.
◇ Added new effect to Ability 3 Rage Avatar after ascension: Gains Invincibility for 1 turn upon killing a target.
◇ Anesidora has reliable crowd-control abilities and relatively short ability cooldowns. She can be paired up with Ocean Waves Set. When deployed in PVP, for example, Point War, she is a formidable DMG dealer and crowd controller.
After the adjustment, Pandora will continue to reap the rewards through her high DMG in Infinity Tower, but she needs support from other Espers for better crowd control. In Point War and other PVP gameplays, she can still have tight control over the enemy’s key unit and accurately take out the target. However, the enemy also has the chance to turn the table at the last minute.
◇ Added new effect to Ability 2 Doom Box after ascension: Immediately triggers Pandora’s Box and Stuns the target.
◇ Adjusted the effects of Pandora’s Box: changed “the enemy loses a certain percentage of current HP upon taking 2 action turns” to “the enemy loses a certain percentage of current AP after each action turn”; changed Stun to SPD Down.
◇ Ability 3 Sandstorm: Changed multistage attacks into a single attack. The total DMG of this ability remains the same. Reduces the target’s AP with greater reliability.
◇ Ability 2 Umbra Attack: Reduced the chance of inflicting Freeze on target(s) with SPD Down. Increases ability cooldown.
Xiao Yin (Azure Dragon)
◇ Ability 1 Shadow Sword: Changed “deals extra damage upon a Crit” into “gains SPD Up”
◇ Added new effect to Ability 2 Dragon Gasp: When attacking, inflicts SPD Down on the target.
Ability 2 no longer triggers Stealth Mode but instead extends Stealth Mode. Xiao Yin’s former AP increase effect after coming out of Stealth Mode has been adjusted to AP absorption upon dealing damage during Stealth Mode.
◇ Ability 3 Blossom Sword: The debuff(s) on the target will no longer increase damage. Added the chance to reduce the target’s AP. The Stealth Mode will be triggered upon reducing the target’s AP rather than killing the target.
◇ Ability 3 Ruler of Dendera: Changed the single attack into multistage attacks. The total DMG of this ability remains the same. After the ascension, added the effect of increasing the caster’s AP.
◇ Ability 1 Brilliance: Added the effect of inflicting Miss Rate Up on the target.
◇ Ability 2 Phantasia: After the ascension, the former effect “all of the target’s ability cooldowns -1 turn” is changed into “dispels 1 debuff from all allies. Heals all allies upon successful dispel.”
◇ Ability 3 Kiss of the Nightingale: When a target is granted with Kiss of the Nightingale, in addition to reflecting damage back to their attacker when taking a hit, 1 debuff will be dispelled from them at the beginning of their turn.
◇ Ability 1 Sonic Venom: Changed single attack into multistage attacks. The total DMG of this ability is increased. Changed “chance of inflicting Poison” to “chance of dispelling buff from the target.”
◇ Added new effect to Ability 3 Hand of Scylla: If the target’s HP is above a certain ratio, reduces this ability’s cooldown and grants SPD Up to all allies.
After the ascension, changed “grants SPD Up” to “grants Recovery to allies with HP above a certain ratio.”
◇ Ability 1 Brutalizer: Changed “inflict DEF Down on the target” to “dispel the caster’s debuff”.
◇ Ability 2 Eternal Strength (Passive): Being attacked will no longer grant Bull Rage. However, when Bull Rage is active, attacks will inflict Diseased on targets and can’t be resisted.
After the ascension, changed “grants an additional turn upon gaining 10 stacks of Bull Rage” to “gains 1 stack of Bull Rage per attack.”
◇ Ability 3 Burning Roar
Added new effect: Gains 5 stacks of Bull Rage, removed the HP restoration.
Adjusted the effect of DMG dealt to focus more on defense; “Inflicts Taunt” is changed into “Inflicts DEF Down on the target.”
◇ Added new effect to Bull Rage: When inflicted with a debuff other than Incapacitated, there is a chance of consuming 1 Bull Rage stack to ignore this debuff.
◇ After adjustment, Bull Rage becomes dispellable.
Ability 2 Shield Guardian (Passive): Enhanced Shield strength and increased the chance of counterattack after the ascension.
Ability 3 Iron Wall: When granting Shield to a target, the Shield Strength will no longer be determined by the target’s max HP but by Laura’s max HP.
Note: For players who have upgraded the target Esper, we will send them Esper rewind items, which reset the target Esper to default status, and the materials consumed will be reimbursed (excluding materials used in Resonance). This compensation is sent via email.
2. Captain Ability changes

Xie Chuyi (Death Guard Hei): Increases ally C. RATE by 20%

1. Buff adjustments
◇ After Blitz is introduced, players can use MemoChips to quickly claim rewards, multiplying the effects of current booster items definitively. After the update, we will remove the booster items while we work on a new boost mechanism. The boosters that are already applied and in effect will not be affected (excluding the effect from Black Gold Monthly Card).
