1. Hunt 12, 13 and Equipment Reforging


1) Hunt 12 and 13


As we announced in our prior developer notes, Hunt 12 and Hunt 13 will be added to Epic Seven. In Hunt 12, the bosses will have 

the same gimmicks are their counterparts in Hunt 11, however, their Combat Points will be increased.



In Hunt 13, our Heirs will be able to meet Bosses who are even stronger than their predecessors. These changes come in the form 

of new gimmicks as well as a new appearance. Although the basic battle scheme will remain the same, Hunt 13 was designed so 

that the characteristics that make each battle special are magnified, and elemental differences better noted. We hope various 

elemental Heroes will be able to participate in Hunt 13.

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)



2) Equipment Reforging


In addition to the implementation of Hunt 12 and Hunt 13, an Equipment Reforging feature will be added, which will allow our Heirs 

to upgrade level 85 equipment that has been acquired from other content, such as Hunt or via Equipment Crafting. Because level 90 

Equipment has yet to be made available in Epic Seven, we will provide more detailed information about Equipment Reforging below.


[UI/UX Addition in Steel Workshop upon entry]


Equipment Reforging will be conducted in the Steel Workshop. In addition to this new content will be the NPC Artena, who can be 

seen in the Steel Workshop. Artena will explain to our Heirs all of the information necessary in order to utilize Equipment Reforging 

when they first enter the Steel Workshop.

 

(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

[Equipment Reforging]


Equipment Reforging is content where players can make level 85 equipment acquired from various places in Epic Seven stronger. 

 

In order to use the Equipment Reforging option, players will need level 85 Equipment (excluding unique equipment obtained from 

content such as the Abyss) and Reforging materials that can be acquired from Hunts. Reforging materials, which can be obtained in 

Hunts 11 and above, will be used to Reforge Equipment for a specific Hunt. For example, Ancient Dragon’s Heart which can be 

acquired from Wyvern 11 and above, will be required to reforge level 85 equipment acquired from Wyvern Hunts. The higher level 

Hunt stage that is completed, the greater chance you have to obtain this material. 
 



Equipment acquired from Equipment Conversion can also be reforged. In order to reforge equipment acquired via Equipment 

Conversion, players will need the item, Manifestation Stone, which can be acquired from all Hunts 11 and above. We will give our 

Heirs more specifics about the materials required via our update notice.
 



Equipment Reforging will require a certain amount of gold along with Reforging materials. The amount of gold required can be 

decreased by using the “Improve Building” function and selecting “Extend Workshop”.

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

 

(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

Within the Equipment Reforging window, our Heirs will be able to see the stat increase for the selected equipment. Equipment, 

upon being reforged, will have its Main Stat improved as well as the sub stats, following the increase in Equipment level. These 

changes can be seen prior to reforging.


We hope that our Heirs will challenge the new Hunt levels. We also hope that our players, with their new equipment, will show their 

bravery as they play the diverse content in Epic Seven.
 


2. World Arena Regular Season


World Arena – Regular Season, which our Heirs have long been waiting for, is finally here.


The first regular season, [Showdown Season], will add more functions and rules to the World Arena.

 

1) New Function: Mock Battles




(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)



After the World Arena Update, many of our Heirs voiced their opinion, saying that they want to play PvP content with their Friends 

and Guild members. PvP content which allows you to battle the opponent of your choosing will be another source of fun, in 

addition to World Arena Battles which will affect your rank. With that, we will update the Mock Battle function, where our Heirs can 

challenge friends, guild members, and other Heirs in the Chat Window to a 1:1 battle. 



(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)




Since Mock Battles are unrelated to Victory Points and have no effect on Rankings, our Heirs can try many unique and innovative 

strategies. We hope we can help our Heirs create more innovative strategies using Mock Battles. We’ll also be adding more 

functions to Mock Battles so that our Heirs can have even more fun.  

2) New Rule: Pre-Ban


We will also elaborate on Pre-Bans, a new rule to be applied to the World Arena.



(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)


Prior to selecting Heroes to use in battle, each Heir will be able to select a Hero (3-star Heroes and above) to ban when matched 

against an opponent. This pre-banned Hero will not be available for selection for the designated battle. If both Heirs select the same 

Hero, then that one pre-banned Hero won’t be available for the designated battle. We hope our Heirs can develop more strategies 

and use more Heroes upon the application of our pre-ban system.


3) New Rule: Placement


A [Placement System] will be added starting from this regular season.

 

Upon the start of a new season, points earned from the previous season will be reset, and 10 Placement Battles will be held at the 

beginning of each season.




(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

During Placement Battles, our Heirs will be matched against opponents of similar strength; however, upon repeated victories, they 

will be matched against stronger opponents. 



(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

Once Placement has been completed, Grade and Victory Points will be displayed, and our Heirs will be matched against Heirs of a 

similar Grade.


4) New Rule: Victory Points Deduction and Season Rewards


Upon the end of a regular season in the World Arena, which will be held for approximately 12 weeks, players that have achieved a 

certain Grade will be provided rewards, including special Skins. Therefore, we will be implementing Victory Points Deduction, which 

will subtract Victory Points for players placed in Master Grade or higher if they do not play World Arena for a certain amount of 

time. The following are the list of Rewards that can be acquired from World Arena regular season.




(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)



 

Grade upon end of the Season

Participation Reward

Grade Reward

Special Reward

Legend

Background Pack for the Season

Special Season Frame

Specter Tenebria Skin

Champion

Champion Grade Frame

Challenger

Challenger Grade Frame

Master

Basic Frame

Bronze~Gold

Conquest Points according to the Grades

 

The rewards for the end of the World Arena Season will be Skins for a selected Hero and Frames. All Heirs who have participated in 

at least one battle in a season will be granted a Background Pack, and Frames will be distributed according to the Grade in which 

our Heir has finished the season. Heirs who finish the season at Legend Grade, the highest Grade obtainable, will be given the most 

special Frame. Heirs who finish the season at Champion or Challenger grade will be given a Frame that corresponds with that grade. 

Those who finish the season at Master Grade or below will be given a basic frame.
 



The Special Reward for the World Arena, which our Heirs may be the most curious about, is Hero Skins. For the Showdown Season,

skin for Specter Tenebria will be given. Details of this skin will be provided before the end of the Season. The skin for Specter 

Tenebria will be provided to those Heirs finished the Showdown Season with a Master Grade or higher, and those players who 

finished the season from Bronze to Gold will be given Conquest Points according to their final standing.
 



The special Skin for Specter Tenebria may also be added to Skin Shop after a certain number of seasons are held. We hope our 

Heirs will have fun participating in the first World Arena regular season, the Showdown Season.

3. UI/UX Improvements for Hero Management and Hero Stories


UI/UX improvements for Hero Management and a Hero Stories function, from which our Heirs can review Side Stories previously 

held, will be added.





(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)


Skill Enhancement will be available from the Hero tab, and we will gradually improve the UI/UX for the Hero window so that our 

Heirs can handle functions related to the growth of Heroes in the same area. Following this change, locations for icons will also be 

altered, and functions will also be integrated. Hero Rating, Facial Expression Changes and Specialty will be re-positioned so that our 

Heirs can view them by going into the “Details” window.

2) Hero Stories
 

(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)


Within the “Details” Menu, a Hero Stories tab will be added, where our Heirs can review stories related to the selected Hero. Within 

the Hero Story tab, Side Stories for the selected Hero will be available, regardless of whether the Hero had a major role or 

supporting role in the story.

 


Each story will be unlocked upon the acquisition of all Heroes within that story. These stories, once they are unlocked, will be 

available to view at all times. The stories acquired will also be available from the Hero Stories menu within the Story Journal.

 

(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)

The first Hero Stories to be added are those featuring Krau, Haste, Cermia, Luna, Kise, Tamarinne and Bellona. Other past Side 

Stories will gradually be added. We hope our Heirs will enjoy the side stories to be added later.

 


And with that, these are the contents to be added with the update in April.


4. Future Updates 



A new Specialty Change Hero, Adventurer Ras as well as Nixied’s Sanctum Area 4 and 5 is scheduled to be updated after the 4/16 

Update. 

 


In order to Specialty Change Ras, the Hero all of our Heirs already have, it will be necessary for our Heirs to complete Episode 2: 

Godkiller, as well as complete the usual Specialty Change requirements. Along with this information regarding Adventurer Ras, all 

Hero information shared on our Pre-registration page will be available in the future via Hero Preview Video Clips. 

 



Furthermore, the time has come to end the strange phenomena that has occurred in Nixied’s Sanctum.

 

 

(*This image was taken from our test server, and may be different upon release.)
 

(*Heirs will be able to select different languages upon release.)


Currently, we are finalizing Area 4 - Icicle Cave, which occurs after Area 3 – Mountain Valley. Area 4 – Icicle Cave will be more 

complex and wider than Area 3 – Mountain Valley. We hope our Heirs will have fun finding shortcuts, Golden Chests and 

fighting Boss Monsters unexpectedly. We also hope our Heirs look forward to Area 5 - Frostproof Valley, which is planned to be 

updated after Area 4 is updated.

 



These are what we have prepared for our April Update Advance Notice. Reflecting on the timeline of Epic Seven, our Heirs have 

always taken the most important role in the progress and changes we’ve made so far. We hope we can keep making wonderful 

memories with our Heirs. We thank all our Heirs for your love and support for Epic Seven, we will return with more content to share 

with you all.



Thank you.

Nice update and all, but when is the ETA of inventory expansion??? Separate artifacts and gear and make them 1000 slots 

BEST

I'm really excited to get a skin that I will never be able to use ;) but for real good job guys I love the way this game is moving forward and really excited for the boy Ras!!


BEST

Amazing update! I was scared that the equipment reforge would be like the equipment conversion, where u are given random substats, but seeing that it only improves subtats you already have is awesome, than you!

So if I reached master I won't get conquest points?? I don't even have specter tenebria, so i will lose out if I rank higher? Master and up should also get conquest points. its stupid that you will lose more if you rank higher! there's a high chance that I won't get spec tenebria EVER. so my reward is nothing? BTW the skin isn't even special because it'll be available to be bought, after several seasons. 

Remove the reforge, It only benefits the whales and doesn't improve the awful rng of the game, make It a actual reforge where se can CHOOSE the substats

Waiting for the Adventurer Ras Specialty Change update. hmm.

Please balance ML Tywin to be more useful (T_T)

Best thing about this notice is the incoming Ras specialty change. Hope it makes him somewhat viable for use....so unfortunate the main character who's supposed to be in the world to take on a GOD...is pretty much crap in most places lol.

so uncomfortable when the inventory need to fix such as more slot or desperate the artifact and gear that is the problem every players want

Can we please be able to store phantasma in the waiting room? Pls???

Can rare and heroic LV85 equipments be reforged as well? 

Please consider adding more exclusive equipment to the available items. 


Also there are still so many loose ends to the story that need to be completed. Believe it or not, people actually liked the story. In episode 1 you had amazing cut scenes, music, etc. This was missing from episode 2. It was so boring (story wise).


When I first started playing, it was the beautiful illustrations, along with detailed lore, that captivated me. It seems that you have forgotten to include this aspect of the game with the other upgrades

I like the planned updates, however, when will episode 3 open? We need more PvE content to keep those if us happy that have completed everything. 


PvP is fun, but so is PvE. Maybe make a epilogue to episode 2, like you did with chapter 1? Also what about the stages 6s and 7s in episode 2?


I'm glad to see that you are trying to keep the game fresh

Calma down, episode 2 Just ended, lucky this is not like FGO where se have to wait 4 months for the next story chapter

Please add Lilibet's exlusive equipment to crafting. Its been like 3 months.. It is imposible to drop the right one...


no mention of your extraordinary music and sound team in the rolling credits? shame on you, smilegate!

I agree with you, certain stages had an incredible soundtrack

A lot of good things in there, thank you! The option to review side stories at will is *great*. I'm also really curious to meet Adventurer Ras (I have been waiting for him). Keep up the good work, but, please, don't make too much girls with unrealistic huge boobs! ;)

It's anime and ****** style, why are you complaining?

STILL NO notes on fixing OBNOXIOUS visual effects on TAP LIGHT burst? TH are these devs on with that crazy insanity WDF!! For SHAME smilegate.

What exactly are you referring to? I'm curious. Maybe I haven't noticed them? 

nice update and thanks dominel for new pvp battle system i will assist recruit more friend to join this game

What a nice QoL! Well done Devs, and thank you

I really want to try the gear reforging asap

but ... how far in the future it will be implemented? this week? 2 weeks from now? a month?

i might be missed the info

but thank you Dev


More gold sink. At least I won't need to re-upgrade lvl 90 gear if it's only a stats boost.

"The special Skin for Specter Tenebria will also be added to Skin Shop after a certain number of seasons are held."
So, it's not special if $$$ can buy it

i really dont get the pre-ban logic. "This pre-banned Hero will not be available for selection for the designated battle. 'If both Heirs select the same' ". people probably wont ban a hero they have. so what's the point? let's say i would pre-ban ml5* heroes that i dont have, chances are, if my opponent has those heroes, he won't pre-ban them. assuming this is the case, the only banned heroes would be heroes that me and my opponent don't have.

Thank you :D

Very happy to see SG is being reasonable with the RTA skins and having to only reach Master by the end of season. Not like when King's Raid started doing this stuff and you had to be in the top 1000 to get a skin at all and then they had better versions of it for the top placing people -.- Really hope they NEVER do something like that.
