Dread Barrage top.jpg

Dread Barrage is a limited-time event where players defeat foes one after another as a crew. Loot can be obtained by clearing quests and gathering battle badges and honors.

Up to Valor Badge square.jpg Valor Badge ×240 can be acquired per Dread Barrage run.

Battles

All battles are raid battles.

Your party begins every battle with Support Potion square.jpg Support Potion ×4, Clarity Herb square.jpg Clarity Herb ×4, and Revival Potion square.jpg Revival Potion ×2.

Unlocking Quests

New quests will be unlocked as the total number of bosses your crew has defeated reaches certain set numbers.

Additional Quests:
Quests of higher difficulty will be added at 7 p.m. (JST) on day 3.

Notes:
The number of foes defeated by a member who joined the crew during the event period will be added to the crew's total.

Unparalleled Foes

An unparalleled foe appears after clearing a set number of quests. An unparalleled foe can appear up to twice a day per player during the event. Only crew members can join battles against unparalleled foes.

Additional Quests:
A lvl 175 unparalleled foe can appear from 7 p.m. (JST) on day 3.

Notes:
An attempt will be consumed when you fail or retreat from a battle against an unparalleled foe that you started.

Valiant Battles

A Valiant Battle is special raid battle that only crew members can join.

Once a Valiant Battle begins, all crew members will join the same battle.

Work together with your crew members to take down this powerful boss and get awesome loot!

Valiant Battle Requirements

A Valiant Battle will become unlocked during the event once 400,000 total crew honors have been obtained.

Valiant Battle Loot

Upon completing the battle, all crew members can obtain the following First-Time Completion Loot:

The earrings and quartz obtained will be the same element as the event's boss.

Valiant Cross

Valiant crosses, powerful attacks that deal a large amount of damage, can be triggered via special backup in Valiant Battles.

Triggering a Valiant Cross

A valiant cross can trigger whenever a participant in a Valiant Battle attacks. When a valiant cross is triggered, an ally will appear to deal huge damage to the foe. Multiple valiant crosses can be triggered from a single attack.

Cross Lvl

A foe's Cross lvl will increase by fulfilling special requirements in a Valiant Battle. The probability of triggering a valiant cross and the probability of a valiant cross chain will increase based on Cross lvl.

Honors from Valiant Crosses

Damage dealt by valiant crosses you trigger will count toward your honors, even for the honors ranking.

Other Notes

  • No AP or EP will be consumed when playing a Valiant Battle, and it can be played any number of times before the event's conclusion.
    • Item drops from the 2nd battle onward will vary from the 1st battle.
    • Honors and EXP become unobtainable from the 2nd battle onward.
    • The Valiant Battle foe's strength will stay the same as the first battle even on subsequent battles.
  • Valiant Battles won't appear on the raid list. To rejoin a battle in progress, return to the event top screen.
  • Up to 99 of each Dread Barrage item can be used in Valiant Battles.
  • Battles that aren't completed before the time limit has expired will end in defeat.

Special Backup

There is a chance special backup may arrive when you launch an attack or send a special backup request in battle. Upon activating, a crew member's star character will come and defeat the foe.

Honors:
You will still obtain honors based on the foe's remaining HP when special backup arrives, but honors obtained by the backup character's attack will not count toward honors rankings.

Notes:

  • The chances of special backup arriving differ depending on quest difficulty and the number of turns passed.
  • One crew member's star character, excluding yours, will be selected at random to provide special backup.
  • Katalina, Rackam, Io, or Eugen will appear if there are less than five star characters set by your crew members.

Event Missions

There are two types of missions in this event.

Individual Missions:
Missions that are completed by and give rewards to players as they satisfy the requirements individually.

Crew Missions:
Missions that are completed by the crew as a whole. All unparalleled foes defeated by the crew will count toward the requirements, and all members of the crew will get the rewards upon completion.

Notes:

  • Players not in a crew are not eligible for crew missions.
  • The number of unparalleled foes defeated by a member who joined the crew during the event period will be added to the crew's achievements.
  • Missions completed after the event conclusion will not be considered achieved.

The following are restricted during the Dread Barrage event period:

  • Leaving a crew
  • Disbanding a crew
  • Dismissing a crew member

Only players who are not in a crew at the start of the event can join a crew during the event period.

Individual honors obtained, number of foes and unparalleled foes defeated, and crew mission objectives completed by a member who joined the crew during the event period will all be added to the crew's achievements.

Loot

The following loot can be obtained in this event.

Quest Unlock Reward:
Can be obtained by unlocking quests of higher difficulty.

Battle Badge Loot:
Can be obtained by defeating foes and gathering battle badges.

Honors Loot:
Can be obtained when a crew's total honors reach certain amounts.

Notes:

  • Players not in a crew can obtain loot when individual honors reach certain amounts.
  • In order to get the crew honors loot for 150,000,000 honors and higher, the individual honors requirements listed must also be met.
  • Quest unlock rewards, honors loot, and battle badge loot can't be picked up after the loot pickup period ends.
  • Players with restricted accounts can't obtain honors loot.

Dread Barrage Draws

  • The token draw will be available after selecting the Revenant weapon included in the drawboxes.
  • Players who already have all ten Eternals can choose a Revenant weapon, damascus pinch, or summon as their drawbox reset item. (This excludes Eternals recruited from event stories.) If the tenth Eternal is unlocked during the event period, these items can be set from that point.
  • You can change your reset item once during the event. After drawing your reset item for the first time from the token draw, you can change your reset item when resetting a drawbox.
  • Damascus pinch can be set as the reset item until drawbox #20.
  • If damascus pinch is selected as the drawbox reset item for drawbox #20, a Revenant weapon must be set as the reset item for drawbox #21 and thereafter. If a Revenant weapon has been chosen prior to that point, that Revenant weapon will automatically become the reset item for drawbox #21 and thereafter.
  • It's possible to choose whether to draw 10, 50, or 100 items at once using tokens. The default is 100 items.
  • The number of tokens required for the token draw varies among drawboxes.
    Drawbox #1–20: 2 tokens
    Drawbox #21–40: 4 tokens
    Drawbox #41 and beyond: 6 tokens
  • The token draw animation will be skipped when doing multiple draws at once regardless of the skip settings. The animation will play, however, when drawing character weapons for the first time or when drawing a drawbox reset item.
  • Items falling under the criteria set in the EXP reserve feature will automatically be reserved to a lazuline vessel (weapons) or a scarlet vessel (summons).
  • The EXP reserve feature will be prioritized over the auto-sell and auto-upgrade features.
  • When weapons with skills are auto-reserved, skill lvl points of the same rarity will be stored in the craftsman's anvil.
  • Filtered items can be automatically sold or used to upgrade an airship when drawn from the token draw.
  • You can't enable both auto-sell and auto-upgrade settings at the same time.
  • Items set to be included in the auto-reserve feature that would surpass the lazuline vessel, scarlet vessel, or craftsman's anvil's skill lvl point limit, as well as those that would surpass the unused tuning point limit, will be sent to the Time Limit tab of your crate.
  • Starting from the 5th drawbox onward, a button will appear that allows you to draw everything from the drawbox at once. It will only appear if you have enough tokens to do so.

Purchase Priority

Most players overwhelmingly prioritize packs containing progression items that are difficult or impossible to obtain from sources other than Valor Badge square.jpg Valor Badges. Among these, priority varies based on each player's goals, account, and stock in other shops.

Other packs are almost never recommended due to their opportunity cost in Valor Badge square.jpg Valor Badges. See Rollback in case of a mistaken purchase.

Notes:

  • Victory certificates obtained will carry over to the next run of Dread Barrage.
