#2. Select characters & secret arts

There are six characters for free trials, including Kamisato Ayaka, Kazuha, Yoimiya, Itto, Razor, and Xiangling. All of them are built to level 80 with the best artifacts and power buffs. You pair them with six characters in your inventory.

  • Transmission Arts are marked in red.
  • Normal secret arts are marked in orange.

These Garyuu Arts buff your attack, HP recovery, Crit DMG, elemental DMG bonus, and reduce the CD of skills and bursts. These power buffs make your teams more powerful. Then, you can defeat more enemies.

#3. Defeat Enemies

After choosing the best team for challenges, you start the match. You can also check out the enemies' details before pressing the Start button. Then, switch among these teams and eliminate as many enemy ways as possible within the time limit.

Switch the team right away when you are recommended. If you keep them on the battlefield for more than 25 seconds after getting warned, they will get weaker. Don't let them down because you cannot use food during challenges. So, you cannot revive them or heal your characters when their HP gets low.

#4. Claim Rewards

When the time is up, you can choose to challenge again or exit the chamber if you complete all reward objectives. After leaving the domain, open the event banner and claim rewards for completed objectives.
