Hello, Heirs. This is Epic Seven.

Currently, we are conducting a thorough review of content improvements and adjustments that will be made to Epic Seven. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our Epic Seven Heirs who are a part of the changes being made.

On July 19th, we gave our players details regarding the maintenance compensation standard. On July 31st, we informed players of the summon system, hero balance and policy improvements. On the 8th of August, we carried out summon system improvements and Galaxy Bookmarks / Mystic Medals Reimbursement. 

We will share more details about the Hero balance adjustments that are scheduled to take place on the 5th of September. We will share these details via a separate notice within this week. We also promise to do our best to provide better service for all our heirs in the future.

Now, I would like to inform you about the Challenge improvements and Exclusive Equipment update, which are the major content updates that will be introduced with the August 22nd update to the game.

Challenge contents contain Training Grounds where, depending on the day, players can obtain a variety of Charms. It also contains content where players can obtain limited-time Artifacts or Heroes. However, when you compare the Energy used to the rewards, it seems that players would naturally prefer using their Energy on Hunts, Adventure or other content.

The goal of the original Challenge content was to allow players to use a variety of Heroes with different strategies. However, when a player attains a certain CP they are able to clear any Challenge without much strategy.

Therefore, we will revamp the Challenge and also add scoring content, called the Hall of Trials. Players will be able to purchase Exclusive Equipment using Wisdom's Gaze which can be obtained from the Hall of Trials. The amount of Wisdom’s Gaze obtained will depend on the grade of the recorded score. The Boss, who appears in Hall of Trials may be changed weekly or the types of debuffs that can be used on the Boss will change weekly.

Players will be able to enter the Hall of Trials using an exclusive token and not Energy. These tokens will be distributed weekly for free and players will also have the chance to purchase them. Players may also have unlimited number of practice battles to ensure that they find a suitable strategy. Tokens will not be consumed for practice battles. 

Wisdom's Gaze. Only certain Heroes will be able to equip Exclusive Equipment, for which a separate Equipment slot is unlocked when the Hero is Awakened to 5.

Each Exclusive Equipment enhances a certain ability and, when acquired, gives a random stat value and a random Skill Enhance effect. Chloe, Rose, Destina, and Wanderer Silk’s Exclusive Equipment will be added with the 8/22 Update.

Following the update on 8/22, the Hall of Trials will have a four week long pre-season period. During the pre-season period, the boss’s advantages and disadvantages change on a weekly basis.

In conjunction with the opening of the regular season, players will be able to craft Exclusive Equipment at the Alchemist's Steeple. In the Alchemist's Steeple, players will be able to use a certain number of Exclusive Equipment as a material and craft Exclusive Equipment with their desired Skill Enhance effect. The higher the Quality Grade, the higher stat value your crafted Equipment will receive, which will increase your team’s overall power level.

Exclusive Equipment is scheduled to be released every four weeks for new Heroes. Newly released Exclusive Equipment will not be immediately available to be crafted in the Alchemist’s Steeple, but rather when a new set of Exclusive Equipment is added, then the preceding Exclusive Equipment will then be able to be crafted.

After this update, with the addition of the Hall of Trials, the regular Training Ground content and time-limited Challenges will no longer be in this area, or will be replaced with new content. Please see below for further information about this.

1. The MolaGora Challenge and the Goblin Challenge are planned to be placed into the Side Story as an event stage.

 2. The standard Training Ground will be replaced by the Hall of Trials. For players who have already cleared the reputations for these areas, these cleared reputations will not be erased and will remain unchanged.

 3. Special time-limited Artifacts and Heroes were previously obtainable via Challenges. New time-limited Artifacts and Heroes that are released will now be made available via Exchange in the Hall of Trials as temporary rewards.

The Hall of Trial requires time and effort to clear, however, it will satisfy our player’s desire to use new Heroes in unique team compositions.

The update that will occur on 8/22 will also unlock a new region, “Mining City Aakhen,” the third Chapter of Episode 2: Godkiller, as well as the Hall of Trials and Exclusive Equipment. Also, new Heroes await our Heirs. We will post more detailed information about these additions in a separate notice.

Equipment improvements, MolaGora improvements, Guild improvements and operation improvements are planned to be shared in the upcoming notice. We promise to communicate better with our Heirs so that everyone can enjoy Epic Seven even more.

Thank you

    BESTUnsure if I like this. If time-limited Artifacts and Heroes that used to be in Challenges are to be temporary rewards via Exchange in the Hall of Trials, I can only imagine that they will use the same currency as the Exclusive Equipment. Does that mean we need to hoard that currency so we can max limit break a new Artifact? With limited entry tokens, there's limited currency. If so, then even with crafting this can start to feel annoying. Do we potentially need to rely on yet another RNG element instead to get the best stats on our gear, e.g. 16% Effect Resistance, on top of our desired Skill Enhancement effect, e.g., Destina's Grace?

    Oh, and while I have completed all the Reputations, the wording of the post makes it sound as if the Training Grounds are being removed. A bit short notice to tell people; if they want their Reputation rewards, they need to finish doing all the Training Grounds before they go away. All of them aren't even available by the time the patch goes live.

    BESTIt seems a good deal of you are missing an important detail:

    "In the Alchemist's Steeple, players will be able to use a certain number of Exclusive Equipment as a material and craft Exclusive Equipment with their desired Skill Enhance effect. The higher the Quality Grade, the higher stat value your crafted Equipment will receive, which will increase your team’s overall power level."

    Translation: You can exchange extra drops for a version of the Exclusive Equipment with the highest possible stat and the desired Skill Buff of choice. Meaning, if your RNG treats you bad and you get a bunch of junk, you can trade it in for a desired perfect gear.

    I am cautious about a few things like difficulty, cost of this special currency etc but so far it sounds good.

    BESTI wish it was Destina's buff not upgrades from unique weapon. Many other heroes who are already strong without them right now, Tama for instance since we're talking Soul Weavers, and don't need a buff like Destina does will get even stronger than her. These skill ehancements are pretty strong after all. Please consider reducing her s3 cd by 1 turn at least without the gear and change enhancement for s3 to something else.

    I hope, this is going to be a feature for fire/ice/wind heroes only. Otherwise, I fear the balance may suffer greatly.

    100% not into the idea of character specific gear. I REALLY don't like the direction this is going...

      i's fine imo, as long as these gears aren't directly gated by paywall, it isn't that bad. Just treat it as how smilegate is giving "specialty change" to non 3* units.

    I didn't expect that. I kinda like it, but we'll have to see how it feels and if it's a finished product that is given to us. I like how you can upgrade your special hero, but I hate at the same time that new players will lose on it. But again, you can farm exclusive gear and exchange them in the Steeple for those heroes you missed on, so good I guess. I would wish that those gears would be less impactful, because I don't see a chance to be prepared in PvP against a match-up with like Destina who has a shorter CD than I expect it would have. How is the interaction between moonlight versions?

    I also like that there is no energy needed, but when you say the tokens can be purchased on top of the free tokens, I'm a bit afraid what kind of currency is necessary to buy them. But we'll see.

    Oh great, now on top of regular equipment upgrade rng, we have to farm another set of equipment with another layer of stat rng with new currency costing who knows what to get extra tries...cash? leifs like the daily lab tokens? 

    Still too early to roast this new content though but hope I am wrong about it and it turns out great. Having a bad feeling about it mostly...

    Guys chill please, exclusive equipment is basically just spec change in challenge / steeple craft form. They also said equipment improvement is planned, I'd assume whatever the improvement will be, it will remove some layers of rng and will also be applied to the exclusive equipment.

    I like the new idea of making less desired heros more viable through this new system. It is more fun if certain heros shine more in certain content. We don't need all around heros only, so personally I would love if this system makes ML heros that are 3-4 * more viable for newer content. And the molagora change is a big step forward for a big issue in current state of the game, so that is nice to hear.

    Keep up the good work Smilegate!

    Nice udpate, but please consider an option besides crafting to reroll exclusive equipment for like half the cost. I don't want to have a full box of the same item with +-1% stats and the same ability plus it'd be more convenient in terms of not having to sell every undesirable result.

    Exclusive gear finna be a mistake. Gonna be a terrible fotm every 4 weeks.

    So here's what I read :

    - Limited entries, unless you pay (what is the currency for extra tries ?)

    - Limited chances in time to get these items, which means that you may never get the skill you want to be improved if you're unlucky, which can be SUPER frustrating, especially coupled with the limited entry factor.

    - RNG stats, RNG skill enhancement, just for the sake of making people to grind more, while it could simply be an equipable items with a boost you could **** instead, rather than a boring grind.

    I'm not sure I like that. That sounds pretty poorly though and is gonna be, yet another thing to grind and get lucky about, amongst all the other stuff.

    "The Hall of Trial requires time and effort to clear, however, it will satisfy our player’s desire to use new Heroes in unique team compositions"

    Oh, you mean, only clearable with Ise-Tama or DCorvus comps again? I hope so coz I HAVE 'em :)
