Quest Details

Barrier Skills in Loadout

Having Barrier Skills in your loadout is key to conquering Recollections of Dusk.
Check the Prioritize Barrier Skills box during weapon loadout and select weapons with Barrier Skill marks.
The higher the total Rank of your Barrier Skills, the more effective they will be against the Area Burden.
Try aiming for Rank 8 or higher.

Required Characters

The quests will have Required Characters to be placed in your loadout when attempting them.
Additionally, once a character is used to clear a quest in the Chamber of Dusk, they will be unavailable to use in other quests.
Take the other quests into consideration when selecting your loadout to formulate the most effective strategy.


  • Duration and content are subject to change without notice.
  • Illustrations shown in notices, etc. may differ from those in-game.
  • The difficulty of Recollections of Dusk quests may be adjusted in the future.
