Dark Blast

Unleash the darkness within through the power of the Dark Blast. Fueled by Dark Falz energy, this new form possesses high health and mighty attacks that can alter the course of battle.

 

As a prerequisite to harnessing this new source of power, you’ll have to clear [EP5: Chapter 2] of the story, or the [Endless Belligerence] Emergency Quest on SH+. Once the condition has been met, the Dark Blast ability will be available to all characters on your account.

 

The Dark Blast can be set to the sub-palette for quick access, and has an activation gauge that fills as you damage enemies. Save it for just the right moment, as you’ll only have one opportunity to use it per quest.

 

A unique skill system is available for the Dark Blast that allows you to add abilities and stats by spending EXP earned at the end of quests. Additional features can be unlocked by completing whatever tasks are required for a skill. The pose your character performs when transforming can also be customized.

 

Ultimate Impact

  • Amasses Photons in both arms to discharge a powerful blast.
  • Can only be used once per transformation.

 

Darkness Wall

  • Generates a barrier that attracts enemies.

 

Physical Dash

  • Performs a high speed dash for a limited time.

 

Bloody Heal

  • Heals both you and your nearby allies.

Endless Belligerence

Aquatic Darkers swarm the wastelands of Omega alongside the Demons in its first Emergency Quest! Omega Hunar takes to the field with the entire destructive force of its expanded moveset. To make matters worse, a new [Bomber Dahgash] foe will be encountered that impulsively darts towards the towers and explodes.

 

Claim Omega Hunar’s weapon for your own with the release of the ★14 [Elder Pain Omega] Sword. It is available as a drop from the quest.

Endless Belligerence is pre-scheduled and can be cleared twice per ship during each occurrence. In line with other Emergency Quests, it will support every difficulty except Hard.

 

Extra Hard, however, will require a main and sub class level of 80.

    1. Why would you wish to reset them, all of them are useful and you’ll level them up one way or another to the max level 🙂

  1. somehow I feel this Dark Blast thing is simply A.I.S of the fantasy world, since they need to bring A.I.S on fantasy world one way or another.
