Twisted Bounties Optimizations

When players reach the relevant requirements after the update goes live, a new version of the Twisted Bounties, Regal Rewards and Champions of Esperia features shall be unlocked. Both common and premium rewards for these events have been increased.

The original Twisted Bounties, Regal Rewards and Champions of Esperia features will be denoted by an “(old)” label, and may be used concurrently with the newer version. Versions labeled as “(old)” shall no longer be refreshable.

Misc Changes

Optimized the way the campaign stage AFK Rewards are displayed, which will take effect after update goes live.

  • Items with higher drop probabilities will now be displayed on the world map and on the chapter page as the campaign progresses.
  • It is now possible to view the AFK Rewards of the current and next chapter via the AFK Reward page.

Optimized the Rickety Cart Reset Hero function. Players that have yet to progress past Stage 5-1 of the campaign can now reset their heroes for free at the Rickety Cart.

In the AFK Arena Test Server, the new “Cursed Realm” calculation time has changed from Wednesday 12:00 to Thursday 12:00 (UTC), during which time no challenges will be available. This change will take effect after the implementation of this update.

Hero Adjustments

Elijah & Lailah

Fixed an issue where the skill “Grace” would incorrectly prioritize allied summoned units as targets under rare circumstances.

Optimized the targeting selection logic and skill description for the skill “Grace”. Allied heroes who have not already been affected by one of the two heroes when Grace is used will be given priority. Details are subject to the in-game description.


Fixed an issue that was causing a battle verification issue to occur in very rare circumstances. The skill’s actual effects remain unchanged.


Fixed an issue that, in rare circumstances would cause the duration of the “Focus Fire” skill’s defense rating debuff to be shortened.
