■ Update

- The new 5★ character, Aurora, is here. 

 

 

"I followed the thread of destiny"

Every time the moonlight appears, Aurora vanishes suddenly, her true intentions known to none. She roams the world in search of the Book, concealing her innermost thoughts, leaving her true motives wrapped in mystery.

 

"Aurora" is a Light-type ranged dealer, wielding a large bow. When she deals CRIT DMG with her Normal ATKs, she gains the "Retribution" effect to amplify DMG dealt. Her Normal Skill, "Arrow Festival", allows her to dodge backwards while firing arrows to keep incoming enemies at bay. Her Signature Skill, "Light-Speed Kicks", deals DMG to nearby enemies, and after dealing CRIT DMG for a period of time, she gains the "Extermination" effect, allowing her to finish off enemies with even more power.

 - A new 4★ Knight of Veda, Elias, has been released. 

 

 

"Rules are Rules!"
He is renowned for being an unwavering believer in his principles, refusing to make any compromises. His steadfast dedication to his principles has earned him the nickname,"That's what Elias would do," a phrase often used to describe someone inflexible. However, his unwavering principles have made him stronger, and his selfless devotion to the House of Segric compels him to embark on a new adventure.

 

“Elias”is a Electric-type Melee DPS wielding a Large Axe, electrocuting enemies and dealing CRIT for an explosive match. Normal Skill “Lesson of Principles” wields an axe to electrocute targets and their nearby enemies. Signature Skill “Lightning Leap” leaps up lightning-fast and lands an axe to deal wide-area electric DMG.
