Magatsu Emergency Quest Changes

The following changes will take place in a future update occurring late March.

  • The first phase of the Magatsu EQ will be updated under a new name, titled “Manifestation of the Calamity.”
  • The contents of this quest will not change and will remain basically the same.
  • This new Magatsu EQ will become pre-scheduled only.
  • As a result, [Advent of the Annihilator] will end its run — no longer occurring in the future.

This update arriving in late March will add a second phase to Magatsu. You must now clear the first phase to participate in the second phase.

1st Phase Magatsu Adjustments

  • The 1st phase quest can be completed up to 4 times per ship. After the fourth time, you will no longer be able to accept the quest on the same ship even if you use a different character.
  • Magatsu will have increased shooting resistance in certain areas.
  • Magatsu will have increased ice resistance.
  • Magatsu will have decreased HP on Extra Hard
  • Magatsu will have boosted 10 and 11 star drop rates on XH

Due to the above changes, an All Skill Tree Reset Pass will be distributed.
