Event duration: 19:00 JST, September 30, 2016 - 17:00 JST, October 8, 2016
03:00 PDT, September 30, 2016 - 01:00 PDT, October 8, 2016

So Close and Yet So Far and By Any Other Name is a combined story event. It features a rerun of the So Close and Yet So Far story event in addition to a brand new story event, By Any Other Name, that continues the first event's story. A loyalty character joins you at the start of each half of the story, and progressing through the story unlocks free quests and raid bosses.

For new players[edit | edit source]

Make sure you complete all the quests, since each chapter, free quest, and raid boss awards 50 Crystal square.jpg Crystals on first-time completion. There are also 2 loyalty characters to recruit, so it may be more efficient to get them both before seriously farming loyalty, if you don't mind rushing through the So Close and Yet So Far story, since By Any Other Name requires the first story event to be completed first. The challenge quest uses guest characters, plus it's free, so you should attempt to clear it even if you don't feel like you're strong enough.

On October 4, 2016, at 17:00 JST, a daily mission will be added to the event to assist others in their raids 5 times per day. This awards raid summoning items and crystals, so definitely make sure you remember to complete it each day.

None of the event rewards are particularly exciting, so, unless you have a personal attachment to any of them, it's not worth trying very hard to obtain multiple copies of anything. Aside from the crystals and characters, it's probably best to largely ignore this event.

Challenge Battle: "A Moment Eternal"[edit | edit source]

Challenge socloseyetsofar.jpg

Party: Main Character and Guests Silva, Romeo, Sahli Lao
Completion reward: Blue Sky Crystal square.jpg Blue Sky Crystal

This challenge is fairly straightforward. Given a full team of Water guests, it would behoove you to make your main character Water as well, and make your main and support summons Water too. The first battle is against Fire Elemental and Water Elemental, but they have very low HP so just auto attack to kill them quick. The second battle is against Oxymoron, and your allies will give you some tips, although the fight is pretty much the same as the raid battle from the story. It uses Contradiction every 25%, which deals more damage the higher your HP is. Leaving it low means that, below a certain threshold, a character can take 0 damage from Contradiction. Anyway, nothing really happens during this fight, so just nuke away. At low HP, you can pop Sahli Lao's counterattack to draw some fire, or it will just go down quietly anyway, so feel free to experiment with your guest characters' skills.
