Version 4.1 Overview



Herrscher of Thunder is here! Welcome again to another patch overview~
Let's just jump into it~


Herrscher of Thunder (HoT) has finally arrived. HoT. HoT Mei is the strongest Lightning character and rides Benares during Ultimate, bombarding the entire battlefield! This S-rank PSY battlesuit will be available in gacha supply.


Other valkyrie changes
Other valkyries also receive some changes. Sundenjager impair has been buffed and more valkyrie skills can charge trauma meter now.



Bella ELF is an S-rank Lightning support ELF that fires lightning bolts and makes enemies take more Lightning DMG. Definitely get her if you plan to maximize your HoT's potential!



HoT's signature gears Benares Awakening and Key of Castigation will be availabe from gacha. Key of Castigation can be upgraded to its PRI-ARM Domain of Sanction in this same patch! The sword is the most important gear for HoT. GET IT!





The third piece of Rebel's Blades set - Bronya: Drive Kometa (B) is available from summer event. 


Theresa Gluttony received a minor change yet impactful in v4.1. You probably read the announcement already, but all captains with Gluttony before v4.1 will receive crystal and upgrade material compensation for this change.


New stigmata added to Bounty Mark

Bounty Mark has six new forgeable stigmata. Also, in v4.2, there will be a new stigma forge system. You can convert Nohime to Peary, which can then be converted to the brand new Herrscher of Ice set! START FARMING NOHIME NOW!



Here are the new additions in v4.1 Battle Pass. Should you get any of these? Well...

  • Kikaku is a great support weapon for Lightning teams in Arena
  • Aphrodite is a must-have for Umbral Rose (if you still use her)
  • Raikiri is used in Shadow Knight teams, but can be substituted with MAG-Typhoon
  • Michelangelo is a generic Physical /Crit stigma for valks with Basic ATK. Can be used by Twilight Paladin, Molotov Cherry etc


 SPENDING EVENT - Schicksal Summer Store 
v4.2 will have another Schicksal Store spending event. It lasts for three weeks. Here are the featured item this time:

Here's a youtube video of the outfits in action.

Expansion supply new mechanic - Essentine to fragment conversion
In Expansion Supply, once you have acquired the featured S-rank, your side material from gacha pulls will be replaced with random amount of Essentine. Once you have gathered certain amount of Essentine, they will be converted to S-rank fragment. This helps captains to get SS-rank valks a bit cheaper and faster.

  • Non-awaken: 270 Essentine = one frag
  • Awaken: 100 Essentine = one frag

New Supply Interface

A nice sleek redesign.
