Event DetailsEdit

Stated in-game

Balaur&#039;s Onslaught - Reign of Darkness Banner

In this event, players will work together to defeat Raid bosses, gain points, and aim for the highest Ranking. Players can receive Ranking Rewards, Discovery Win Rewards, Assistance Win Rewards, and Special Event Units and Evo Materials. Points can be received by defeating Raid Bosses. The amount of points received will vary based on the strength of each Raid Boss.

Raid BossesEdit

Balaur&#039;s Onslaught - Reign of Darkness Banner5

Players will have the chance to encounter Raid Bosses after they have cleared a Quest. There are three types of Raid Boss during Part 1. A fourth Raid Boss type will be added in Part 2 (5/19 post-maintenance). A Raid Boss's appearance and attribute may vary based on its type. Each player can discover a single Raid Boss. Once the discovered Raid Boss has been defeated, players may encounter the next Boss. Each time a Raid Boss is defeated the following Boss will become stronger. Raid Bosses must be defeated within a certain amount of time. Should players fail to defeat the Raid Boss within the allotted time, the Raid Boss will retreat and no points will be received. The time given to defeat a Raid Boss varies based on its type. Should players rechallenge a Raid Boss with time remaining, the Raid Boss's HP will not have recovered. However, a Raid Boss that has retreated will have fully recovered its HP.

▼ Raid BattlesEdit

Balaur&#039;s Onslaught - Reign of Darkness Banner7

During Raid Battles, players will use Battle Points (BP) to launch attacks until they win or lose a battle. The following conditions decide whether a player will win or lose a battle:

Results in a WinEdit

1. Reduce a Raid Boss's HP to 0.

Results in a LossEdit

1. The Raid Party is completely annihilated. 2. Players cannot reduce the Raid Boss's HP to 0 within the allotted turns. The allotted turns for each Raid will depend on the amount of BP used. Normal Attack (1 BP): 5 Turns, Power Attack (3 BP): 10 Turns. Should players exceed the allotted time amount of time, players will not receive any points regardless of defeating the Raid Boss.

▼ Battle Points (BP)Edit

BP are necessary to launch Normal Attacks and Power Attacks during a Raid Battle. A player may possess a total of 6 BP. BP will be spent each time a player launches a Normal or Power Attack. Units used in a Raid Battle will have increased abilities depending on the amount of BP a player has used.

[When self-discovered]Edit
  • 1 BP (1st ATK 0 BP) → Normal Attack (ATK x1)
  • 3 BP → Power Attack (ATK x5, HP x2)
[When accepting a direct Ally Request (Friend)]Edit
  • 1 BP (1st ATK 0 BP) → Normal Attack (ATK x1)
  • 3 BP → Power Attack (ATK x5, HP x2)
[When accepting a direct Ally Request (Other)]Edit
  • 1 BP (1st ATK 0 BP) → Normal Attack (ATK x1)
  • 3 BP → Power Attack (ATK x3, HP x2)
[When accepting an open Ally Request]Edit
  • 1 BP (1st ATK 0 BP) → Normal Attack (ATK x1)
  • 3 BP → Power Attack (ATK x3, HP x2)

ATK and HP bonuses received through Power Attacks will be based on a Unit's total ATK, including adjustments from Summons and Equipment. When challenging a Raid Boss you have discovered yourself or one from a direct "Ally Request", the first attack of a "Normal Attack" will not use any BP. "Power Attacks" will still require 3 BP for the first attack. 1 BP will be restored every 15 minutes. BP can be completely recovered by using a "BP Elixir". BP Elixirs can be purchased from the Event Shop or received as a reward after defeating a Raid Boss. After a RANK UP, a player's BP will be completely replenished.

Raid Shop Inventory:

Name Amount Cost
BP Elixir
1 100 Gems
BP Elixir
5 300 Gems

▼ "Ally Request" FunctionEdit

Balaur&#039;s Onslaught - Reign of Darkness Banner6

Players that have failed to defeat a Raid Boss may use an "Ally Request" for assistance (Friends or Friends + All). When selecting "Friends + All", the request will appear in the Open Requests list. Only "Discoverers" can utilize the "Ally Request" function. Players who have responded to an Ally Request may not utilize this function. Ally Request can only be used once from the Battle Result screen. Players must battle against a Raid Boss once more to be able to use the Ally Request function. When selecting "Friends" or "All", only a random portion of those players will be sent an Ally Request. The Ally Request function can be used up until 5 minutes before the end of the allotted time to defeat a Raid Boss. The function cannot be used with less than 5 minutes of the allotted time remaining.

▼ "Link BonusesEdit

Link Bonuses occur when 3 or more players join a Raid Battle by answering an Ally Request. A bonus will be added to ATK power. The more players that join the battle, the bigger the bonus will be. All players currently in battle will receive the effect of the Link Bonus. Max bonus of ATK x2 may be received from Link Bonuses. There is no Link bonus when joining a battle from the "Open Requests" list.

▼ "Raid RewardsEdit

Players can receive points and rewards in the following ways when a Raid Boss is defeated:

  • 1. Players who have discovered a Boss can receive "Boss Discovery Rewards" and "Discovery Wins".
  • 2. Players who have joined a Raid Boss Battle can receive "Raid Assistance Rewards" and "Assistance Wins".

The more damage a player deals to a Raid Boss, the easier it is to receive a better reward from Raid Assistance Rewards. How many points and what type of reward can be received depends on the strength of the Raid Boss a player has defeated. Rewards will be sent to the Inbox. Rewards will vary from player to player. Even if players defeat the same Raid Boss, they may all receive different rewards. Points will be awarded when a player deals damage to and defeats a Raid Boss.

▼ PointsEdit

Points can be obtained by:

  • 1. Dealing damage to a Raid Boss.
  • 2. Defeating a Raid Boss.
▼ Raid WinsEdit

If a Raid Boss a player has discovered is defeated, it will be counted toward that player's (Boss) Discovery Wins. If a Raid Boss is defeated by a player responding to an Ally Request, it will be counted toward that player's (Raid) Assistance Wins.

New Feature Fever TimeEdit

At certain times, there will be "Fever Time", during which it is easier to encounter the strongest type of Raid Boss. Fever time will not be included until Part 2 of the event.
