Gacha System Changes

Legend Gacha Exchange System

A new counter is being added to Legend Gacha that starts at 300. Rolling in Legend Gacha will decrease this counter, and once it hits 0, you will be able to exchange for one applicable piece of equipment that is part of the campaign (i.e. has its rate increased). Not all equipments available in the campaign will necessarily be available in this Exchange System.

The following Gachas will affect this counter:

  • Beginners Step Up Gacha
  • Legend Gacha
  • Legend 10-Pull Gacha
  • Star Legend Gacha

Step Up Gacha and Legend Gacha each decrement it by one, whereas Legend 10-Pull Gacha and Star Legend Gacha will decrement it by 10.

Rolls in these gachas, regardless of whichever currency is used—be it Mobacoins (or Grablue Coin), Jewels, or Legend Gacha Tickets—will all decrement the counter.

This counter will reset at the end of every gacha campaign.

Moon System

When you get a duplicate character weapon, you will receive a refund in the form of a special items called Moons. The type of Moon you receive will depend on the rarity of the duplicate you received (R weapon gives a Bronze Moon, SR gives a Silver Moon, SSR gives a Gold Moon). These Moons can then be exchanged for items like 1/2 AP Potions, Job Points, and so on.

Particularly worthy of note is a new weapon called the Damascus Steel Bar, which can be used to limit break a weapon of any rarity.

You will also be able to exchange them for a special ticket that allows you to choose a piece of equipment of your choice from all the pieces of equipment available in the active gacha campaign at the time, including Lucifer/Bahamut/The Order Grande.

  1. Precisely where in the announcement confirms the fact that the 300 counter would reset from campaign to campaign ? And is there any mention of this being retroactively applied to pulls before 3/10? Deciding whether to pull since I’m new and would benefit from having more characters but also might wait until March. Thanks!
