Open World Exchange Shop Guide

What's coming up: Best Deals and Detailed Explanation of each item afterwards!

 


 

Per week, you can only open up EITHER the Sakura Samsara OR the Schicksal Headquarters map to collect and do adventure tasks in. These are the main materials for both shops:

 

 

“Aesir Core” are for the Schicksal HQ store, obtained in Schicksal HQ.

 

“Crimson Magatama” are for the Sakura Samsara store, obtained in Sakura Samsara.

 

This means that depending on what you want to buy, you will have to pick your map carefully!

 


 

Now, let’s start looking at all the items! If you just wanna know what’s really worth investing in, check out the next two chapters. Everything after that will be advice as to how good an item is and whether it’s worth getting or not. We will start start with the Schicksal HQ shop, look at Sakura Samsara shop right after and check out the Fusion Materials last.

1. Top Deals

Any base A-Rank Valkyrie Fragments you can get from the shops: Luna Kindred, Imayoh Ritual, Gyakushinn Miko and Flame Sakitama Fragments! Since you can make one purchase of 3 fragments a day, you will see results of your farming very soon.

BUT: Luna Kindred fragments cost “Aesir core”, Imayoh Ritual and Gyakushinn Miko fragments cost “Crimson Magatama” and Flame Sakitama Fragments cost no map specific currency!

 

Luna Kindred: Luna Kindred does not excel at anything, but she is still decent.

Imayoh Ritual: Imayoh Ritual’s specialty lies in boss fights.

Gyakushinn Miko: Gyakushinn Miko’s specialty lies in all round performance.

Flame Sakitama: Top Deal, go for it! Flame Sakitama’s specialty lies in boss fights but you can also take her into the abyss (non boss floor). Her strength heavily depends on her rank.

 


 

2. Good Deals

Dark Ji Xuanyuan T

For a Divine Prayer SP regen build, useful in the infinity abyss, especially on boss floors! Just combine two Dark Ji Xuanyuan pieces.

Divine Prayer equips:

  • 2nd Sacred Relic/ any other gun
  • Dark Ji Xuanyuan T M
  • Newton B/ Kepler B/ any other B

 

Kukuria B

The only non supply-crate attack speed option. If you are not planning on pulling for a Planck B or Lier Scarlet B anytime soon but want to play Bronya, get this. Any Bronya equipped with a cannon or missile launcher heavily depends on attack speed.

 

Advanced Skill Materials

This is needed to upgrade skills of Soul Awakened Valkyries. You may run out of it quickly, especially if you have multiple Valkyries to upgrade. Buy some more from this shop!

 

 


 

3. Schicksal HQ

Phoenix Fragment: You can buy up to 4 Phoenix fragments per week. Combined with the free fragments which are and have been given out so far, unlocking Phoenix through fragments is very much possible, and so is ranking her up to SS. If you want to play her, definitely get these fragments.

Sixth Serenade Fragment: If you already have a few fragments from the spending event, open world is where you can get the missing ones to unlock her from. If you already have her unlocked you can choose to grind her to rank SS, which assuming you have no materials saved up, will take about a year.

Sealed Sakura Earthen Jar: Jar science tells us that to unlock Goushinnso Memento from only jars from the open world, the average player will take about 5 months. Unlocking Dimension Breaker will take you about double that amount. This is due to not enough “jar” materials being available in the open world and the drop rate of fragments in a jar. Per jar, you will have (estimated percentages) a 33% chance to get a Dimension Breaker Fragment, a 33% chance to get a Goushinnso Memento fragment and a 33% chance to get two Goushinnso Memento fragments. It is up to you whether you want to make this investment and keep up the grind for such a long time.

Luna Kindred Fragments: Top Deal, go for it! Luna Kindred does not excel at anything, but she is still decent.

 

Selune’s Elegy: Not useful at all. Definitely not worth getting.

Edwin Hubble T: Freeze can be used to trigger QTEs. Generally worth getting.

Edwin Hubble M: Not useful at all. Definitely not worth getting.

Edwin Hubble B: Can slow the enemy but not very useful. Not worth getting.

 


 

4. Sakura Samsara

Sixth Serenade Fragment: If you already have a few fragments from the spending event, open world is where you can get the missing ones to unlock her from. If you already have her unlocked you can choose to grind her to rank SS, which assuming you have no materials saved up, will take about a year.

Imayoh Ritual Fragment: Top Deal, go for it! Imayoh Ritual’s specialty lies in boss fights.

Gyakushinn Miko Fragments: Top Deal, go for it! Gyakushinn Miko’s specialty lies in all round performance.

Flame Sakitama Fragments: Top Deal, go for it! Flame Sakitama’s specialty lies in boss fights but you can also take her into the abyss (non boss floor). Her strength heavily depends on her rank.

 

Sealed Sakura Earthen Jar: Jar science tells us that to unlock Goushinnso Memento from only jars from the open world, the average player will take about 5 months. Unlocking Dimension Breaker will take you about double that amount. This is due to not enough “jar” materials being available in the open world and the drop rate of fragments in a jar. Per jar, you will have (estimated percentages) a 33% chance to get a Dimension Breaker Fragment, a 33% chance to get a Goushinnso Memento fragment and a 33% chance to get two Goushinnso Memento fragments. It is up to you whether you want to make this investment and keep up the grind for such a long time.

Time Seal Box: You can buy these but you are essentially throwing valuable materials out of the window, since you can get a total of 6 Time Seal Boxes from the “Exchange” and “Coop” shops. These are only a good buy if you are absolutely sure that you do not want anything else from the open world shop.

Shigure Kira M: The M piece is insignificant but it barely costs any valuable materials. The full Shigure Kira set is a good free elemental set.

 

Rowland T, M, B: 3 Star defensive set, not worth the materials.

 

Dark Xuanyuan Sword: Physical Version of Blood Dance, use together with Dark Ji Xuanyuan T for shieldbreak and high scores in Memorial Arena. Himeko is not that great of a damage dealer in general, so if you don’t plan on having a Himeko support, you don’t need this.

Mary Shelley M: Really bad, not worth getting.

Kukuria B: The only non supply-crate attack speed option. If you are not planning on pulling for a Planck B or Lier Scarlet B anytime soon but want to play Bronya, get this. Any Bronya equipped with a cannon or missile launcher heavily depends on attack speed.

 

Seele Vollerei M: Only reason you would ever get this is for the 2 set effect. Combined with Seele Vollerei T and Elizabeth Bathory B on a Fu Hua, you will reach insane running speeds. “Fun” to get, luxury gear.

Crimson Queen: Just a 3 Star sword, nothing special. You can get the same sword in the “Exchange Shop“ for a currency thats obtainable more easily. Do not buy!

Dark Ji Xuanyuan T: For a Divine Prayer SP regen build, useful in the infinity abyss, especially on boss floors! Just combine two Dark Ji Xuanyuan pieces.

Divine Prayer equips:

  • 2nd Sacred Relic/ any other gun
  • Dark Ji Xuanyuan T M
  • Newton B/ Kepler B/ any other B

 

Yae Sakura T, M, B: This set has no actual uses. Do not buy! Huuuge waste of materials!

 


 

5. Fusion Materials

Advanced Skill Material: Needed to upgrade skills of Soul Awakened Valkyries. You may run out of it quickly, especially if you have multiple Valkyries to upgrade. Get as many as you need!

Primary Skill Material: Needed to upgrade skills of Soul Awakened Valkyries. You get a lot of this from Expansion Supply Crates which feature Soul Awakened Valkyries but if you still happen to need some you can buy it from here.

Other Materials: You can craft however many you can of the ones with the blue background. For the “Ancient Carvings” and “Soulium Ore” check on how many you need before you craft them to ensure you are not wasting materials.
