Tales of Arcarum is a limited-time event in which you can play Replicard Sandbox quests, collect Sephira medals, and exchange them for various rewards.

Event-exclusive bonuses apply for all zones while active. Sephira medals can be collected from any boss, but bosses related to forging the featured Arcarum Summon will provide bonus medals.


Sephira Medals

  • Sephira medals can be obtained by clearing Replicard Sandbox quests.
  • They can be collected and traded in for various items.
  • Sephira medals will be reset with each run of Tales of Arcarum.

Expedition Rank and Tales Missions

Rank up by completing Tales Missions

Rewards and expedition rank points can be obtained by defeating foes and completing various Tales mission objectives.

Obtain a certain number of expedition rank points to raise your expedition rank. As your rank rises, you can obtain crystals and unlock various expedition rank bonuses that can be used in Replicard Sandbox quests.

There are four different ranks: C, B, A, and S. The higher your rank rises the greater the bonuses are, so aim for completing as many Tales missions as you can!

Event-Exclusive Guidebooks

The phantasmal guidebook, an event-exclusive Sephira guidebook, can be equipped only during the event period.

This special guidebook comes with effects that can strengthen weapon skills, and other beneficial effects can also be unlocked by defeating certain foes.

Even if you haven't unlocked any basic guidebooks yet, equipping the phantasmal guidebook will help you make progress in Replicard Sandbox expeditions!

The phantasmal guidebook can't be equipped at the same time as the universal or special guidebooks.
