We would like to introduce the new features and changes in the Ver. 4.9.0 update.
■ A new event, Frontline Phalanx, is being added
Frontline Phalanx is a new event in which summoners send their support to Heroes in other worlds struggling against the odds.
Faced with an overwhelming force, these Heroes are in desperate need of your help. Provide the Hero of your choice with support to grant them strength. If you're really feeling generous, you can even use a Guardian Shield to increase their chance of success.
Use the tools at your disposal to save the Heroes from certain defeat!
The first Frontline Phalanx event will begin on . Further details on how to play will be included in the event preview notification.
If you haven't seen the sneak peek included in the broadcast from August 13, be sure to check it out!
■ A feature to change Hero traits is being added
Players will be able to change a Hero's asset or flaw using items called Trait Fruit.
Players may choose the combination of asset and flaw at their discretion. The traits of any Hero may be changed in this way, including those of Forma allies obtained with Forma Souls.
100 Trait Fruit are required to change a Hero's traits one time. These items may be obtained from the following in-game activities:
|Resonant Battles||Interval Rewards|
|Mjölnir's Strike||Tier Rewards|
|Forging Bonds||Friendship Rewards|
Trait Fruit will appear as rewards in the Arena and Resonant Battles from the season starting on , and in Mjölnir's Strike and Forging Bonds after the release of Ver. 4.9.0.
What's more, you can get 100 Trait Fruit right away by completing quests celebrating the debut of the Frontline Phalanx event. Don't miss this chance to get your hands on enough Trait Fruit to change your favorite Hero's traits!
・ Changing a Hero's traits can also affect how their stats will increase when merged and when using Dragonflowers. (The value of the stat total will be unchanged.)
・ Depending on the Hero's level when their traits are changed, the amount that their stats change may vary—but their stats at level 40 will match any other instance of that Hero with the same traits also at level 40.
