Emergency Quest in Progress

  • 緊急イベント Emergency Event
  • 出発 Depart

Emergency Quests are a special kind of quest where you must defeat a ferocious enemy in a certain period of time. You can participate in an Emergency Quest by pressing the [Depart] button that appears at certain hours during the day. These quests use their own form of energy called Operation Points, indicated by the OP bar underneath your name.

 

es AC OP
OP Restorative Medicine (OP Med)
These items fully recover Operation Points!

Operation points will slowly restore over time. However, you can speed up this process by purchasing OP Meds at the AC Shop. For those of you who are short on cash, there are, of course, free alternatives in acquiring them. For example, certain campaigns and compensations could hand out OP Meds for free! Be sure to check your mailbox each day to retrieve your free complimentary items.

Op Meds (OP回復薬): Restores your entire OP Bar.
Mini OP Meds (OP回復薬ミニ): Restores one point of your OP Bar.

Aside from those two methods, another free alternative occurs through playing Emergency Quests. Completing the EQ several times helps to unlock free OP Meds through the achievement system. More details on this Achievement System can be found below.
