Roadmap for Current Content

From Another Eden Wiki

Miscellaneous Notes[edit]

  • Go set up your Transfer ID right now if you haven't already. You have been warned!
  • Use your food to heal your party especially before boss battles! You can always get new food by resting at an inn.
  • Only use your chronos stones on banner pulls! If you die in battle, you can force close the game and reload before the battle as long as you don't go past the defeat screen.
  • You can get to Chapter 26 using a mixture of 3★ and 4★ units. After that point, you want to start using 5★ units.
  • Gear isn't an exceptionally big deal before endgame. Just wear what you can get. If you're running Another Dungeons, you should be getting a decent number of materials. Also, look into getting the treasure chests hidden behind Horrors to lessen the amount of materials you need to grind. Once you get past Chapter 26, the Cruel Angel's Weapons and Armor Set and Toto's gear should last you until the Eastern continent.
  • Some additional Tips for new players.
  • In regards to Gallery of Dreams, 10-pull are better than single-pull as you are guaranteed a 4★. It is strongly recommended to pull on the limited banners rather than the regular banners as the character pools for the regular "episode" banners are not updated since their release.
  • Make especially sure to check the "Bonus" tab of the wiki page for each area (Main Story, Episodes, Symphonies/Collabs, Mythos/Apocrypha, Ensembles/Other Tales, etc.) as you go through or after it to make certain that you didn't miss anything important! Seriously the best stuff in the entire game, like Personal weapons, ends up there, and you don't want to miss those.

Roadmap[edit]

The Hopefully Most Efficient Method for "Finishing" the Game
※ Important Note: Aside from the 22 q.png Two Knights and 22 q.png Azure Rebel side episodes, everything else that is not part of the Main Story is optional. This means that if you do not want to fish, mine, or do Otherlands, etc., you are free to ignore those parts of this roadmap.

  1. Start the game
    1. As soon as you have control, open up the Menu, go to Other, and Activate ID Transfer. Screenshot your Transfer ID and password and then e-mail the image to yourself. This way you can recover your account in case of catastrophic failure. The Transfer ID is permanent and reusable. Linking to Facebook or Google Play doesn't count. You are still at risk of losing your account if you need to reinstall.
    2. For the tutorial summon, the recommendation is May. Bivette, Ciel, Miyu, and Sevyn are other choices, but May is the easiest to upgrade to 5★ and she has exp farming applications.
    3. Warning: There is something called the Trails of Heaven and Earth, it's a subscription plan that offers some decent rewards and the first month for each trial is free. It is suggested you don’t start the trials until you are able to take advantage of it fully. This means that when you are fully using your 564000001.png and 564000003.png keys, so roughly around chapter 26 or later. The most optimal time to use would be January 31 to March 1 on a non-leap year as you reap the rewards for three months but it would require you to be able to complete the January and March trials in a limited timeframe.
      1. Do note that there are base awards each month for all players under Records -> Awards -> Trials that have monthly deadlines. Completing these goal will give a guarantee Gem.png30 chrono stones, 2 Meow Coins, and 5 Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png points for any character you currently own. (The Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png points can not be saved past the month).
    4. Get your daily Gem.pngChronos Stones. Remember to do these tasks every day for a minimum of an extra Gem.png50 Chronos Stones. It should be noted that Steam users do not get the ability to play ads for chronos stones.
      1. Open up the Menu, go to Inbox, and grab your Gem.png20 Chronos Stones.
      2. Open up the Menu, click the '+' at the top of the screen next to your Gem.pngChronos Stones and watch an advertisement for Gem.png10 Chronos Stones from the shop.
      3. The first time you log into the game after 1500 UTC, you will have the opportunity to watch a single ad for Gem.png20 Chronos Stones. Do not skip this, there is no way to replay this ad and get the reward for the day if you decline.
      4. Open up the Menu and click the icon at the top left for the opportunity to watch 5 more advertisements for additional rewards.

Main Story: The Cat Beyond Time and Space[edit]

  1. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 2
    1. Open up the Menu, go to Records, go to Symphony, and begin the prologues for both 61 q.png Persona 5 Royal (P5R) Collab: Bound Wills and the Hollow Puppeteer and for 61 q.png Tails of Time and the Brave Four: Tales of Chronographia (Cress Series). Remember to continue doing the prologue that are unlocked later on at:
      1. 61 q.png Chapter 3 (Velvet Series)
      2. 61 q.png Chapter 6 (Crown of the Pale Dawn: Resistance Seeking the Dawn)
      3. 61 q.png Chapter 6 (Crown of the Pale Dawn: Resonant Bonds)
      4. 61 q.png Chapter 9 (Milla Series)
      5. 61 q.png Chapter 13 (Yuri Series)
  2. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 4 which should unlock the orange icon 4 q.pngside quests. It is recommended to do all the side quests in an area for the Gem.pngChronos Stones before continuing on. In addition, finish any blue icon 12 q.png character quests available to get Gem.pngChronos Stones (and later unlock more powerful abilities on the Skill Board for the associated character).
  3. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 8.
    1. At this point you should have enough Gem.pngChronos Stones for your first 10-pull. 10-pull are better than single-pull as you are guaranteed a 4★. Pull on whichever banner you want though it is strongly recommended to pull on the limited banners rather than the regular banners as the character pools for the regular "episode" banners are not updated. Your main goal is simply to get enough useful characters to form a 6-man team.
  4. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 11 (characters should be around level 20)
    1. Upon finishing Chapter 10, you should have gotten a Holy Prayer Spirit. To spend it, go to Menu, go to Dreams, and go to the Regular tab. You will have a choice of four 4★ healers. The recommendation is Prai since he unlocks 5★ after Song of Sword and Wings of Lost Paradise. If you have him then, Erina > Krervo > Pom
    2. Go to Acteul near the Man-Eating Marsh entrance. Begin the 22 q.png 1000 Year Ark to unlock fishing and begin to slowly fish pools at your level (If you're trying to fight a turtle, you've gone too far). Ponds refresh every half hour. Using the map icon at the pond, you can transport to other ponds and see the pond respawn time.
      1. Fishing has been provided with quality of life updates to quicken completion. The main spend for the obtained FishMedal.png fish stones should be for advancing the hook rather than storage. It shouldn't take you too long to finish fishing if you are dedicated, you want to do fishing since that will unlock Levia and then eventually AS Levia.
    3. Begin spending your 564000001.png Keys on Hard Another Dungeons on the Blue Door (H-AD) at the >>spoiler<<Spacetime Rift.
      1. Doing main story dungeons (such as 564000001.pngH-Moonlight Forest, 564000001.pngH-Industrial Ruins, 564000001.pngH-Nadara Volcano, etc.) will get you EXP, materials for equipment, tomes and scripts for upgrading certain characters from 3★ to 4★, and a 10% chance at Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png in specific dungeons for specific story characters.
      2. Doing the 564000001.pngH-Sealed Realm: Transitory Time Space (commonly called the EXP dungeon, found by tapping the purple icon to the top right) gives you about 1 million EXP, EXP badges, and Exp item.pngEXP scrolls. However, you will not get any materials, tomes, scripts, or Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png.
    4. If you get a 564000101.pngWhite Key at the end of a dungeon, it unlocks the White Gate (Phantom Crystal Dimension). Go run it immediately because you can only have one White Key at a time. It will give you Gold.pnggit and character upgrade materials as well as unlock the Paw Stamp Album. Once you have the Paw Stamp Album, make sure to talk to any cat you come across inside the PCD.
    5. Begin fighting Uquaji (found at the far-left door next to the fishing spot in the >>spoiler<<Spacetime Rift). If you rest at a inn or eat the Promised Fruit, he will respawn ready to battle again with 5 more levels than the last battle up to a max of 195.
    6. Begin filling out your Cat Catalog (obtained after returning to the Moonlight Forest).
    7. Return to the Mayor's House in Baruoki to do his tutorial missions. Completing the tutorials will reward you with +EXP badges up to +30%.
  5. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 13 (Characters should be around level 32)
    1. Obtain Aisha by completing her first character quest: Beyond Reckoning at Palsifal Palace. She join the party as a 5★ guest at level 60 and can set FireFire and WaterWater Zones. By being level 60, all other characters under 45 will get a bonus mutiplier for exp. Any characters less than 75% of the level of your highest level character will gain 2x EXP from battles. The highest level character does not need to be in the party for this to take effect.
    2. If you've completed the P5R prologue from Step 2, go to the Baruoki Tavern to start the 61 q.png Bound Wills and the Hollow Puppeteer Symphony. Complete the entire Symphony to get Joker and Morgana. Make sure to get all the badges from the dungeon (including a +20% EXP badge!) as well as their level 60 personal weapons. If you need armor, farm the mobs here to craft Fabricated Armor which comes with continuous regen!
    3. Go to Unigan near the gate to the Karek Swampland. Complete the 22 q.png Two Knights side episode until VH-Miglance Labyrinth (Unigan) is unlocked. Begin spending your 564000003.png Keys here to start getting the rewards. Completing this side episode is required to continue the main story past Chapter 26.
    4. If you've completed all the 61 q.png "Tales of" prologues, go to the front of the Unigan Tavern to start the 61 q.png "Tales of" Symphony. Complete the entire Symphony to get 4★ Cress, Velvet, Milla, and Yuri. You can get their personal weapons and 5★ tome by going to the >>spoiler<<Citadel of Time Ruins and selecting the respective trial.
    5. If you've completed all the 61 q.png Crown of the Pale Dawn prologues, go to the front of the Ratle Inn to start the 61 q.png Crown of the Pale Dawn. Complete the entire Symphony to get 4★ Alphen, Colette, Lloyd, and Shionne. You can get their personal weapons by looting the chest in the area. In chapter 3, you will be required to use Aldo and Amy and the four Symphony characters so insure they can handle the mobs. To get their 5★ tome, you must fight the associated Raptor at Fraxinus Labs.
    6. If you have Miyu, you can begin 28 q.png Other Story: Little Princess' Little Big Adventure in Miglance Castle. Just go as far as you can and if you find yourself under leveled, put it on hold and come back later. Just remember that Miyu’s 5★ NS is ranked low.
    7. Keep fishing.
    8. Ignore the 22 q.png Lost Tome side episode for now.
  6. Continue the 1 q.png Main Story
    1. Once you hit level 40, go to Elzion Theta District. Complete 22 q.png IDA School Part 1: Absolute Zero Chain until VH-Saki's Dream World is unlocked. Stop spending your 564000003.png Keys on Two Knights and begin spending your 564000003.png Keys here instead to start getting the rewards. Make sure to also do all the bonus activities related to IDA Part 1.
    2. Farm the two overworld Horrors in Miglance Labyrinth every 6 hours to finish off 22 q.pngTwo Knights and get all the rewards. They are located down the well next to the Unigan Tavern on floors 2 and 5.
    3. After completing 22 q.png IDA Part 1, complete the 22 q.png 1000 Year Ark until VH-Dragon Palace is unlocked. Begin spending your 564000003.png Keys here to start getting the rewards. Don't forget to check the sparkles hidden throughout the VH dungeon for black pearls. The number of stacked turtles at the start of the dungeon will let you know how many there are. Make sure to also do all the bonus activities related to the 22 q.png 1000 Year Ark.
    4. Begin challenging 81 q.png Azami and 81 q.png Cerrine. They start at level 40 and respawn with 10 additional levels up to a maximum level of 80. Azami can be found in the Serena Coast. Cerrine can initially be found on the 2nd Floor of IDA School H Block after you complete 22 q.png IDA Part 1, but will move to the 3rd Floor Classroom for the 2nd-4th fights and the Sky Terrace for the 5th fight. Defeating them will recruit them to your roster.
    5. Did you remember to keep fishing?
  7. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 16.
    1. Begin challenging the 81 q.png Flame Eater (Gariyu). It starts at level 40 and respawns with 10 additional levels. It can initially be found in the Zol Plains but will move to a different location every time it respawns. Defeating it will allow you to fight Gariyu to recruit him to your roster.
  8. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 18.
    1. If you have Ciel, begin 28 q.png Other Story: Foreign Skies and the Ship to Freedom in Elzion Gamma District. Similiar to Miyu, Ciel’s 5★ NS is ranked low. So you can also skip this til later.
  9. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 21 (characters should be around level 45)
    1. Visit the various locations offered on the >>spoiler<<Riftbreaker's main deck to unlock access to Nilva and Rucyana Sands (which leads to Zarbo). In Zarbo, go into the rightmost house on the center lane and tap the straw dummy (it does not have an exclamation mark) to gain access to Sarupa and Charol Plains.
    2. Go inside the Mayor's House in Baruoki. Begin the 61 q.png P5R Part 2 Symphony: Bound Wills and the Hollow Puppeteer: Promises, Vows, and Rings. Complete the entire Symphony to get 5★ Violet.
    3. Begin the 22 q.png Time Mine side episode. You'll want to stop by here every half hour or so when the sparkles respawn.
    4. Go to Elzion Gamma District. Begin the 22 q.png Lost Tome side episode to unlock the Treasure Quests. Continue to work through this episode as your level allows.
    5. Go do the hidden quest chain for the Adamantine Weapons. You can only get two weapons, one now and one later, and your decision is permanent so choose carefully. Commonly recommended options are 202000001 icon.pngSword, 202000002 icon.pngKatana, and 202000004 icon.png Lance.
    6. You may consider using your 564000001.png Keys in H-Tower of Stars to farm materials needed for level 52 and 60 equipment to complete your collection catalogue. Otherwise, use them to farm points for side episodes (other than the 22 q.png 1000 Year Ark) or to farm EXP in the Transitory Time Space.
    7. Are you still fishing?
  10. Complete the 1 q.png Main Story up to Chapter 22
    1. Go to Baruoki. Start the Wanderer in the Vortex Prologue. You will get 4★ Nona and unlock the Timetwisted Maze, a unique roguelike game mode, where your delving party consists of 4 characters from your roster, divided into new Character types, and you have to complete 20 randomly-generated floors. Rarity of a character is not important here, so you can use whoever you like.
      1. Generally there are four objectives for doing Timetwisted Maze
        1. Noahxis, a free 5★ wind unit that can use Single Shot, a 0MP 500k AOE attack with 10 Detonators. With Noahxis, you can achieve 0MP mob farming. You must have earned a total of about 4000 Time Coins (spent and unspent) to unlock all 3 of his event cutscenes in Arat: Maze Village. The cutscenes are marked by teal event markers on the minimap across Arat. View all his events and he will join your roster.
        2. Get to Floor 20 so you can get Gem.png chronos stones for getting to the 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, and 20th floor. Also Noahxis's skills improved based off these achievements.
        3. Buy all of the charms from the 3 brothers to get a total of 10 Detonators which determine the strength of Noahxis's Single Shot and Enlil Cycle
        4. Get OOPArts. OOPArts come in different grades, Stone/Bronze/Silver/Gold/Jewelled. Higher rarity OOPArts have a higher chance of being appraised as better equipment. Still, even the medium-quality equipment stands out for having a level requirement of 1 but stats on par with level 50+ weapons and amour.
      2. You can proceed to start Wanderer in the Vortex Chapter 1 and Wanderer in the Vortex Chapter 2. The order of chapters in Wanderer in the Vortex allows for chapter 1-3 to be played in any order. In addition, the difficulty of these areas can be controlled from the quest menu. In both chapters, you should be able to get to normal end and will probably need to come back to face the Warped enemy in Arat: Maze Village to unlock the true ending.
    2. Go to the Unigan inn. Begin the 22 q.png First Knight and the Holy Sword side episode (requires completion of 22 q.png Two Knights). Completing this side episode provides 5★ Deirdre. Make sure to also do all the bonus activities related to the 22 q.png First Knight which can reward you with things like VC grasta, armor, and a second Adamantine Weapon.
  11. Complete 1 q.png Chapter 25
    1. Finally, this is the point where you see your initial choice of picking May from the Tutorial Encounter pay off. Go to Baruoki and start the 110.png Heroes of Bygone Days and the Engraved Oath. Finishing this ensemble will net you the ability to upgrade May to 5★ as well as unlock Home's Lost Atelier, which you can start running for rewards. Also finishing will give you a pretty strong sword and one of the best hammers in the game
  12. Finish the 1 q.png Main Story (characters should be around level 55)
    1. Now that you finish the main story, time to start the Chrono Cross Symphony, the 61 q.png Complex Dream, this collaboration was unlocked at chapter 13, but you need to finish part 1 of the story to complete the whole collaboration. This collab will net you some of the best and most flexible free units in the game. Finishing it will unlock the Dreamslip Tower of Time AD, recommend getting a few copies of “elements” , a special mechanic from the collab for the Cross Units. In this collab, you will also have the chance to farm the Prismatic Weapons and armor, they are very strong weapons that basically allow your units to auto crit and boost damage dramatically as well as adding speed to your units. The collab unit Kid has an ability to also steal materials from mobs, which you can use to farm random and rare items.
    2. Go to Derismo Highroad just outside Palsifal Palace. Begin the 71 q.png Sword and Wing Mythos. Complete 71 q.png Chapter 2 to get 4★ Clarte. Complete 71 q.png Chapter 3 to craft Anti-Lightning Armor which gives +10 SPD, these are some of the best and easiest armor to mass produce. The mythos has a very good story, so it is suggested you take your time and not rush it. You should be able to get pretty far in the mythos, but 71 q.png chapter 6 is locked until you do 1 q.png chapter 44 of the Main Story and 71 q.png chapter 7 and beyond is locked until you also finish the 22 q.png Dragon Palace side story.
    3. Go to Unigan near the gate to the Serena Coast and unlock the Royal Theater. You can cast your characters in different roles of a play and you are awarded Gem.pngchronos stones the first time you get a Disappointing, Excellent, or MAX review for each play.
    4. Go to Baruoki in the Mayor's House and do the two-part quest chain beginning with To You of Days Long Past to get the ULTIMANIA Hammer. It can be upgraded through fighting specific enemies so keep an eye out for them as you continue to play.
    5. Go to Baruoki in the Mayor's House and do the quest for The Cat's Tale Beyond It's Territory. This will let you explore new locations as Varuo. You can get grasta and cat equipment this way.
    6. After obtaining the ability to travel as Varuo, go start the Cat Battles. Your goal is to finish the quest "Dance the Paw-Rondo!" located in a hidden extended area east of Last Island. If you have Bivette, come back after finishing the quest to unlock a second quest and additional Cat Battles. Finishing the second quest will unlock Bivette's 5★ potential and leveling >>spoiler<<cat!Bivette to level 40 will give you enough Flare Witch Psalms to upgrade Bivette to 5★.
    7. If you have not gotten all the rewards from the 22 q.png Two Knights, 22 q.png IDA Part 1, 61 q.png P5R Part 2, 61 q.png "Tales of", or 61 q.png Complex Dream side episodes/collabs, use your 564000001.png Keys to keep collecting points.
    8. If you do not have any points to farm, use your 564000001.png Keys to farm H-Ruins of Rucyana for levels, Exp item.pngEXP scrolls, Gold.pnggit, and scripts.
    9. Begin spending your 564000003.png Keys to farm VH-Moonlight Forest, Industrial Ruins, and Nadara Volcano for levels, materials, tomes, scripts, and (if you're doing VH-Industrial Ruins keep Amy in the party to get Destiny ten item.png). You also want to try and get the Sun Goddess Tome, Empress Tome, and Flame Lord Tome from these VH dungeons respectively.
    10. You will also unlock the VH-Sealed Realm: Transitory Time Space and Ephemeral Time Space. Doing VH-Transitory Time Space gives you about 1.7 million EXP, EXP badges, Exp item.pngEXP scrolls, and a chance at treatises. Doing VH-Ephemeral Time Space gives you about 800k Gold.pnggit, Git Badges, Gold Lumps, and a chance at treatises (it is recommended to wait until after Chapter 51 when you gain access to Gold Weapons). However, neither of these dungeons will give you any materials, tomes, scripts, or Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png.
    11. You will begin earning Another dungeon token.pngTsubura's Gems for completing VH dungeons. You might want to consider saving 400 of these in case you need to buy treatises for an Another Style sidegrade. Any extras are best used to buy 564000003.png Keys to run additional VH dungeons. On average, this is superior to buying Chant Scripts with them. It is NOT recommended to use Another dungeon token.pngTsubura's Gems for buying psalms to upgrade your story characters. You can earn up to 120 Another dungeon token.pngTsubura's Gems a week.
    12. Finish challenging 81 q.png Azami and upgrade her to 5★.
    13. Finish challenging 81 q.png Cerrine and upgrade her to 5★.
    14. Finish challenging 81 q.png Flame Eater/Gariyu and then upgrade him to 5★.
    15. Begin to fight the original bonus bosses for the Gold Rank Badge.pngachievements/Gem.pngChronos Stones (Goblin King, Red Dawn, >>spoiler<<True Chronos Menas, Imbrium Basin, Level 90 Flame Eater). Note that Red Dawn and Imbrium Basin are part of the 202000007 icon.pngULTIMANIA Hammer upgrade quest so you might want to hold off on killing them until you reach that point.
    16. At this time, you should be able to start Boss Rush in Elzion in Sebastia's Lab. Boss Rush has a ton of very special rewards like exp badges, tons of Exp item.pngexp scrolls, Gem.png Chrono Stones, badges and grastas. However, this content will have great spikes in difficulty and later stages expect you to have endgame gear. The goal is to unlock at least stage 4 of the Trials to Light the Darkness normal mode. Unlocking this stage allows you to use May and a few units to access a whole new way and one of the most effective ways to farm exp. This is one of the most effective ways to farm exp, resource wise and you can replace the Transitory Time Space AD with this method to farm.
    17. Once you reach around level 60, if you have any characters that are capable of getting a Manifestation Weapon, go do the initial battle in the Spacetime Rift located in the room furthest in the back. Once you get the weapon, keep it equipped on anyone in your currently active party so it gains EXP up to level 10. Use the farming method above to grind faster. The second fight is harder but as long as you have the collab units, you can fight them at a pretty early level, just follow this manifest weapon guide, some of the harder weapons like True Manifest weapons might require some later game units, but a majority of them can be beaten with free units and gears at around your current level, especially if you have the prismatic weapons from the 61 q.png Cross Collabs.
    18. The fish ponds miss you. T_T

      1. You can proceed to start Wanderer in the Vortex Chapter 3 (requires completion of 22 q.png IDA Part 2). The order of chapters in Wanderer in the Vortex allows for chapter 1-3 to be played in any order. In addition, the difficulty of these areas can be controlled from the quest menu.

Note that a fully upgraded necklace will grant +20 SPD while doing the Sword and Wing Mythos will allow you to craft a comparable +10 SPD necklace without needing to use 564000001.png and 564000003.png Keys.
    2. You should be able to start challenging the trials inside Mementos AD. Finish all 10 trials to get a 5★ Skull. Finishing the trials will also give you Violet's and Skull's personal weapons and VC Grastas.

If you do decide to do the rest of the western mythos, you will encounter your first difficult battle (if you haven’t been fighting any of the harder manifest weapons). The Final Boss of the Western Mythos is a pretty big difficulty spike from what you are used to, but is more of a skill and mechanics check then anything, if you have read the manifest guide, you can apply the same concepts to this fight. Just know the boss only uses magic attacks, so intel debuffs and type shields. With that, this fight should be pretty simple.
    3. After completing 1 q.png Chapter 44, 564000003.pngToto Theater World (AD) will be unlocked. On exit, there is a chance to obtain 1, 2, or 3 Destiny ten item.png/Destiny mei item.png, with an estimated chance is 1/5, 1/25, and 1/125, respectively.

    8. Begin the second ensemble 110.png Scythe of Rebirth and Crimson Flower, this is an optional sidestory, but you will get a treatise of your choice (to an extent), after you finish the sidestory. After finishing this sidestory, its dungeon will have damage test challenges, where you need to do around 4.6 billion damage to pass and unlock a final optional boss fight. You probably wouldn’t be able to beat it, but just keep it in mind for later.
    9. Begin 81 q.png Rebirth of the Beast King. This event consists of a series of battles in different locations.

The first 3 battles can be done in any order but they must all be cleared to gain access to the 4th battle. After the 5th battle, you unlock Riica's 5★ potential and personal weapon. Feel free to come back later if the fights are too difficult.
    12. Begin 81 q.png Jewel in Shade by the front desk of IDA School H Block (requires completion of 22 q.png IDA 2 and the 22 q.png Lost Tome side episodes). This event consists of a series of battles in different locations. The first 3 battles can be done in any order but they must all be cleared to gain access to the 4th battle.

    16. Also if you finish the 71 q.png mythos, you can start 22 q.png Ocean Palace 2, the reason why this is recommend to start this sidestory asap is because you get 5★ AS Sheila in the beginning of the sidestory and she can sets PiercePierce zone.
    17. At this point, if you finished the 71 q.png western mythos and did 22 q.png IDA Part 1, you can start the next mythos, 71 q.png The Apex of Logic and Cardinal Scales. Later chapters of this mythos will require you to finish 22 q.png IDA Part 3, and 71 q.png Chapter 5 needs you to finish 1 q.png Main Story Chapter 60. This mythos will net you the free unit, Curio as well as unlock two new dungeons with some pretty good gear to farm.
