New Player Checklist
If you're a new player, or even if not, Granblue Fantasy has a lot of things going on, so it can be taxing to remember everything you can do or need to do. This list contains various time-limited or one-time tasks to perform to help you make progress on your Granblue journey!
These are activities you generally do only once, or on an as-needed basis.
- For new players: Do your free daily 10-draw for the next 6 days after creating your account.

- Set up support summons (Menu > Profile). (Don't forget to update your support summons if you get better summons down the line!)
- Adjust your Settings (Menu > Settings).
- Settings > Battle Settings contains useful settings that can improve your gameplay based on your needs, including the option to change the size of the Skill Queue icons, turn on or off Skill Effect descriptions, change the speed of battle and summon animations, as well as toggle Semi and Full Auto settings.
- Settings > Chat/Stickers alows you to change your sticker sets to include a variety of Stickers the game offers for communication.
