New Operators
In addition to the various rewards for players to claim, 4 new Operators are joining the game.
Carnelian, a 6-star Caster, is Beeswax’s sister coming from Sargon. Carnelian’s talents allow her to restore her HP and get the effect doubles when charged. With Carnelian’s skill activated, her Attack Range will increase and her Attack will also be strengthened. When charged, the same target receives increased damage from Carnelian.        

Kirara, a 5-star Specialist, owns a talent that restores her HP continually, and the effect increases if there are no other allied units around. Kirara’s first skill enables her next attack to deal additional Arts damage, while the second skill increases the effect of her talent, and deals Arts damage to all enemies within her Attack Range.

Bena, the other 5-star Specialist, is the bonus operator that can be obtained for free. Bena possesses a unique trait that can leave a Substitute after being defeated and swap back to the original after a while. Her talent enables the Substitute to deal Arts damage and reduces the damage taken by the Substitute.

Indigo, a 4-star Caster, can store up her attacks when unable to find a target and fire all at once. Thanks to her talent, Indigo’s attack can bind a target. Her first skill, when activated, changes Indigo’s Attack Range and reduces her Attack Interval greatly, with some loss of the damage each attack deals.

The event will also introduce a crossover with I.T, granting operators trending outfits in the game. “Cómodo” for Thorns, “Liberté//Échec” for Surtr and “Ursus IO79” for Zima will be available at the store for the time being.
