“Hello, little one! It looks like I've found my last Record. Although there are other stories we'll need to revisit in the future, this one hasn't been explored until now. Mama appreciates your help so much; let's get started!”

Where To Start

Before getting into the meat of this event, here’s a list of things you should do and prioritize!:

  1. Clear all event quests on Normal / Hard / Very Hard / EX Hard once each.
  2. Navigate to the Event Exchange and purchase the Event Character(s) with your first  bronze clear Medals. If you do not have enough Medals yet, replay the highest difficulty quest you can clear until you have enough bronze Medals to buy the Character(s)
  3. Equip the newly acquired Event Weapon(s) granted from that Event Character purchase in a subslot on one of your active team’s characters, preferably a matching weapon type character if applicable (Optional: Level the weapon as high as you can to maintain your Force and complete limited time missions for gems)
  4. Begin referring to the Quest Farming section to farm the appropriate quest for more Medals to purchase additional copies of the Event Weapon(s) to Ascend the weapon(s) and increase your Medal Bonus.
  5. Begin referring to the Event Exchange Table to best prioritize which items you plan to clear from the Event Exchange. If you are stuck on what to work towards, just follow the table from left to right, top to bottom in order, as all event exchange items have already been ordered from highest to lowest priority.

Maximizing Event Progress

Ensuring any and all Event Weapons you acquire are equipped and ascend as high as possible is pivotal to event progression. Below is a table that outlines this event’s related weapons and the Medal Bonus they can provide at each Ascension Level.

Using saved Black Pearls to Ascend the Event Weapon early to hasten event progress isn’t necessarily recommended as this event only has a single redeemable weapon; it is recommended to only use the new Flexible Black Crystal material redeemable from the event for ascending the Event Weapon to acquire additional Medal Bonuses. Black Pearls could still be used on 4* gacha weapons (which provide larger Medal Bonuses) especially if you plan to use them beyond the event for other content.

Quest Farming

For quest difficulties below EX Hard:

General rule of thumb based on previous event medal drop rates:

+10 or fewer medal bonus: farm Very Hard Quest #9.

+16 or greater medal bonus: farm Normal Quest #3.

 

For quest difficulties at EX Hard:

At the EX Hard difficulty - stamina cost is the same for all quests, so it’s generally recommended to farm the highest force quest your loadout can consistently clear given that Silver and Gold Medal rewards gradually increase across higher force quests. Additionally, despite what resonant weapons you may have equipped, Silver Medals only begin to drop at Quest 2 and later, with Gold Medals only beginning to drop at Quest 4 and later. Take note that the Bronze Medal base drop rate remains consistent:
