Standard Class Level 85
It's finally here! Standard classes will now be allowed to unlock a new level cap by clearing a client order specific to their class. In order to achieve this trial, one must attain the Title [Creator of Solid Defense]. This Title might already be familiar to those with Expert Player Matching, as it requires a ★12 unit in all three slots at +10 grind.
Over the past few months, you may have noticed that we've been using the term [Standard Classes] in relation to this news. For all intents and purposes, [Standard Classes] refer to all current classes excluding Hero.
