Summoner Tidbits

  • Your pet will faint when its HP reaches 0. However, it will revive after a certain period of time. For example, Wanda revives in 30 seconds while the other pets revive in 60 seconds.
  • Summoners will have a variety of skills with some interesting effects. For example, there's a skill called "Pet Sympathy" that increases the pet's damage and HP recovery when you fulfill their requests for Resta or Shifta. It appears that your pet will request these two things based on its current situation in battle. There's another skill called "Subclass Grow Up" which increases your subclass' EXP gain. Then there's "Dear Master" which randomly lets your pet receive damage that would have otherwise killed you. Has a 30% activation rate at level 1.
  • You can place candy in the Candy Box to customize your pet's abilities. Initially, certain spots on the board are blocked by Jelly Cubes and Caramel Cubes. Jelly Cubes dissipate when you level up your pet. Caramel Cubes can only be removed using an item called a Caramel Crusher.
  • You can level up your pet through Egg Synthesis, but there's a cap on the number of times you can perform this action in a given period. Eventually as time passes by, you'll be able to perform synthesis again. As previously mentioned, it works in a similar way to feeding a mag.
  • It appears that there are other types of Eggs you can use, like T-ATK Eggs, and DEX Eggs. We don't have any details on them at the moment.


Summoner Skill Tree

Subclass Grow Up

  • Increases your subclass EXP Gain.
  • Works only in quests.

HP Restorate

  • Activates when the character's HP falls below a certain amount.
  • Once activated, it gradually recovers HP.

Pet Sympathy

  • An Active Skill that works only under the following conditions:
  • When your pet asks for Shifta, casting it on them will boost that technic's effectiveness.
  • When your pet asks for Resta, casting it on them will boost that technic's effectiveness.
  • It's unknown at this time if it works for other supporting Technics.

Point Assist

  • Your character first marks a part of the enemy's body in a similar fashion to Weak Bullet.
  • Your pet's damage increases when it attacks the area covered by the marking.
  • This effect is only active for your own Pet.

Alter Ego

  • Active skill for a limited time, with both GOOD and BAD effects.
  • The Good: Once activated, your pet's damage will increase.
  • The Bad: If your pet gets hit by the enemy's attacks, both you and the pet will suffer damage.

Story Quest

  • Selecting Episode 4 at the character selection screen prevents you from playing Episode 1 ~ 3 Story Quests.
  • There will be some slight differences for the NPCs appearing in the lobby based on whether you selected [EP4] or [Ep 1 ~ 3].

PlayStation 4 Version

  • You can play the game for free if you have a Sega ID and a PSN Account (aka SEN Account)
