Hello, this is Epic Seven.

Some future content that is planned to be implemented in Epic Seven was introduced today during the Epic Seven World Championship livestream. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this.

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

 The names of new content/items are subject to change.

This announcement is a summary of what was introduced today.

 ___________________________________________________________________


It's been just about three years since Epic Seven was launched. We now have more fascinating Heroes than ever before, however, some players may feel a burden in regard to raising them.

Therefore, we’ll be introducing the following: 

Summon Improvements,

Growth Improvements

Overall Contents Improvements

These improvements are being implemented so that our Heirs can grow their Heroes more comfortably.



[#1 – Summon Improvements]

 1)
Selective Summons

To reduce the need to re-roll at the beginning of the game, the Selective Summon system will undergo the following improvements.

(1) Guaranteed 5
 Hero

(2) 5
 Hero guaranteed at summons 1/10/20/30

(3) Record Function in order to temporarily record a summon pool

(4) View Hero Rating Function


Now our Heirs will be guaranteed to be able to start their adventure with a 5 Hero. 

Additionally, Selective Summons Season 2, with new Heroes in the Hero pool may be added for Heirs who cleared Episode 3. This may be updated at a later date.

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

 

2) Moonlight Connections

Moonlight Connections will be offered to all Heirs.

This will open after clearing Episode 1, Sanctuary Gate Underground, allowing Heirs to choose one Moonlight Hero among six choices. The six Heroes that can be selected are Heroes that have been with Epic Seven since the beginning and are as follows: 

1. Arbiter Vildred, 

2. Martial Artist Ken, 

3. Dark Corvus, 

4. Ruele of Light, 

5. Specter Tenebria, 

6. Judge Kise.

 
 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

Some functions related to growth will be locked. The four areas of locked content can be unlocked by completing certain missions. After all the missions have been cleared, the Hero will be fully summoned and will be able to be used in all content, like normal Heroes.

If you choose to have a Moonlight Connection with a Hero that you already own, you will be granted 10 Galaxy Coins after having completed all the missions.

3) Connections

Heroes that are obtainable from Connections, particularly Alexa, Furious, Lorina and Montmorancy, can be very helpful to new Heirs trying to clear various content. However, due to the high difficulty of certain missions, it was not easy to acquire them right when you may have needed them.

 

Therefore, the difficulty level will be adjusted so that our Heirs can make connections with these Heroes earlier than before. Also, Angelica, a beloved PvE Hero, will be added to Connections to help Heirs with certain content.

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

4) Specialty Change

Heroes acquired from Connections such as Lorina and Montmorancy can become stronger by completing a Specialty Change. Currently, the Hero that you wish to Specialty Change must be at least level 50, making it tricky for new Heirs to even begin a Specialty Change quest. 

Therefore, the following improvements will be made.

(1) Unlock Conditions: Clear Episode 1, 10-10

(2) Required Hero Level Reduced (50 → 30)

(3) 3
 Kluri will be given after clearing the Specialty Change tutorial

(4) Some Runes will be given for the first Specialty Change for Skill Tree enhancement

(5) The difficulty level for certain Specialty Change quests will be reduced

(6) UI Improvements

Now it's time to strengthen your new Heroes.

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

[#2 – Growth Improvements]

1)
Penguin Improvements

First, we will make Penguins easier to acquire, and easier to use.

Penguins will be merged into a single element, and they will no longer occupy Hero slots, but instead will be placed into the inventory, similar to charms.

There will also be no limits on the number of Penguins you can have, and of course, you will be able to easily sell them right from the inventory area. The Hero Level up UI will also be improved so that Penguins can be easily used to max Level a Hero.

 
 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

2) Penguin Mileage

Along with the Penguins improvements, the way that Heroes can be raised will be adjusted for convenience purposes.

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.


From this update, players will be able to play through the Main Story and our Side Stories with Max Level Heroes, and the excess EXP will be used as Penguin Hatching Mileage. Once the mileage is full, you will have earned a Penguin.

With this change, players won't have to constantly rotate in ingredient Heroes but instead can just earn Penguins and use them to level up their Heroes. This change will help to improve the efficiency of the repeat battle function provided by our various Pets.

3) Potion of Ascension

An item, the "Potion of Ascension" will be added to help with the promotion of Heroes. Using this item will instantly promote any Hero to 6. The areas where this item can be obtained will be limited, but one will be given out for completing the Adventurer's Path. 

Rewards and missions for the Adventurer’s Path will be adjusted along with the 5/27 update. If you have already completed all parts of the Adventurer's Path, then this item will be delivered to you in-game via your in-game mailbox.


[#3 – Contents Improvements]

Certain content will be adjusted so that it can be better utilized at different stages of a player's development.

1) Basic Content Improvements

First, Pets will be unlocked at a lower Account Rank (35 > 25) so that the Repeat Battle function can be utilized by our Heirs even earlier.

As growth will become faster, additional Abyss Guide β and Labyrinth Compasses will be given to our Heirs after reaching a certain account Rank, allowing you to clear more of this content as you become stronger. Along with these adjustments, Abyss rewards will be improved for Floor 40 and under so that Heirs can obtain Equipment and Charms easier. Additional Abyss Guide β and Labyrinth Compasses will be delivered to you in-game via your in-game mailbox for Heirs who have already reached the required Rank, after the update has been applied.

2) Side Story Improvements

The requirements to unlock side stories will be adjusted and the rewards will be improved.

(1) Unlock Condition Adjustments

By playing our Side Stories, you are able to see the background stories of Heroes as well as obtain currencies required for growth. Currently, side stories are unlocked once the player reaches Account Rank 9. However, players at this rank may face obstacles when playing through a side story due to the difficulty level. 

Therefore, side stories will now be unlocked after completing Episode 1, so that players will be better prepared for these challenges.

(2) Side Story Tutorial


The side story for Alexa, "Dear Mentor," will open for all Heirs, and this side story will act as a tutorial which will explain how side stories work.

This side story features Alexa, who adores her mentor, Iseria, and includes a battle against a boss. The rewards consist of MolaGora and Covenant Bookmarks. This tutorial will show what a side story is in Epic Seven.

(3) Main Hero Buff Effect

As side stories will unlock after clearing Episode 1, the overall difficulty will increase. 

(4) Less Energy, more Rewards

The rewards for side stories will also be greatly increased and the Energy required to obtain the Main Reward of a side story will be decreased by about 25%. 

First, The MolaGora Challenge and Goblin Challenge will be included in all exploratory side stories enabling Heirs to earn more Gold and MolaGora. This will grant more MolaGora and Gold when going through Special Side Stories with multiple chapters that open every week.

Second, Friendship Items, which were first distributed in last year's Christmas side story will be added to the Exchange Shop. The element will follow the Main Hero's element of the story.

Third, the drop rate for Charms will increase on stages and low-level equipment will drop less. This is expected to help alleviate the burden of gaining charms, but also help in regard to Equipment inventory issues.

Fourth, Epic and Rare Catalyst Selection Chests will be added to Quest Rewards and the amount of obtainable Gold will increase. 

Lastly, a "Receive All" function will be added.

With the introduced side story improvements, we’ll be well prepared to offer you chances to enjoy more interesting background stories for our many Heroes.

3) Other Quality of Life Improvements

1) Fail Guide

 A guide that appears when you fail to clear a stage, which will provide practical information that leads to the growth page is also being made.


 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

(2) Catalyst Improvements

To search for Catalyst information, players must view region information or the Catalyst Journal page. Due to this, it required a great deal of effort, especially for newer players.

To relieve this burden, the UI page will be improved to increase visibility.


 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.


2) AP Shop Improvements

Changes may be made so that it will be possible to see and purchase items from other AP Shop’s list for the same continent.

Missions for opening Episode 2, AP Shops

Finally, the amount of Catalysts that can be purchase from AP Shop and Unrecorded History will double. For example, number of Rare Catalyst that can be sold will increase from 5 >10 and the number of Epic Catalyst will increase from 2 > 4. 

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

In addition to these changes, we will continue to look for ways to improve the comfort for the consumption of Catalysts and difficulty surrounding the ability to obtain Catalysts, such as by providing Catalyst Selection Chests in the Quest Rewards for side stories.

Next, we will briefly introduce some new content that is being prepared for the summer, after the update scheduled for 5/27.

[#4 – New Content]

1) New type of Side Story - Advent

A new type of side story is being developed, called Advent.

In Advent style side stories, a total of 9 different Heroes will be organized into parties of 3. You will face against a strong boss that will become stronger in each phase.

The battle will consist of three phases, and each party will battle a phase.

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.



As buffs will be granted according to element, a key factor in clearing this content will be having a wide variety of Heroes to choose among.

Since it is tricky to form full parties, this content will only be unlocked for those who have cleared far enough through Episode 2. For this content, in order to better prepare for battle, Heirs will also have a week long preparation period with the ability to preview the boss before the actual battle takes place.

Heirs can earn the Substat Modification Gems they want from the Exchange Shop and from clear rewards. Also rare, exclusive rewards will be given which can't be obtained from normal side stories.

Additionally, Gem Conversion and Gem Crafting using unwanted Gems may be updated at a later date.

2) Guild PvE - Ancient Inheritance

And finally, one of the biggest updates planned for 2021. Guild PvE content, Ancient Inheritance.

 

 The introduced content will be updated after 5/27, and are subject to change.

 The images in this notice are only drafts and are subject to change. 

 The update schedule is subject to be changed.

A gate leading to a lost dimension has been found in an isolated area of the Shandra Ruins. Huche, a Memory Chain researcher has requested help from your Guild in order to conduct an investigation.

All guildmates will participate in the exploration of the fog-covered ruins.

To reach the deepest area, you must strategically cooperate with your other guildmates.

The more guildmates that participate and the more you work together, the more efficient your exploration will be.  The Guild that explores the deepest area first will receive higher rewards and will be commemorated on the Great Achievement, which is planned to be updated at a later date.

As it requires different roles to clear the content, including roles such as a treasure hunter or boss tracker, Heirs who are still increasing their account rank or raising heroes can still contribute to the exploration. We hope the Ancient Inheritance becomes a new way for guildmates to bond together.


Ancient Inheritance is scheduled to be updated on our 3rd anniversary.

We'll come back to you with more details before then via our official stream.

3) 2021 Update Schedule

Here is a summary of our 2021 update schedule along with what was introduced today.

    BESTMaybe you should realise that this is for newer players after beating episode 1, we older players just gain the benefit of any of these heroes or coins, if someone already has these 6 specific units, well lucky them, they can have a dupe for free. Stop trying to make a big deal out of a good gesture

    BESTThat Penguin update is a very clever approach. This’ll free up a lot of inventory space without putting extra burden on the servers. Well done!


    Pretty excited for the Guild PvE stuff too, curious to see what’s behind it.


    The free ML will be great for new and old players alike (tough choices ahead).


    Overall, great news. If you guys can bring this kind of positivity into other areas of the game, Epic Seven will go far.

    Don’t be afraid to try stuff. Look at what is working in the industry and what isn’t.

      It’s almost like you think you’re entitled cuz you spent money.  Oh wait, you aren’t, that’s your own choice to spend and not have self control, not anyone’s problem but your own.  We will continue to enjoy these nice gestures while you wallow in whatever you think is “owed” to players that pay money.  News flash they’ll never reward you for paying so stop whining about it pleb, you aren’t special at all *****

      Ghost559How is this not a big deal? Its a free ML 5*. They should’ve given players who already own these heroes 10 Galaxy coins for each of them they own so they can have a chance at getting an ML 5* they don’t own.

      To be fair, I reached top 500 rta ranks without arby nor his counters and have played without him since launch. My “counter” is legit just tanking with sc doris ml krau feci blue krau ras  etc. Arby is still strong but I think at this point he has enough counters where giving everyone a free arby doesn’t exactly destroy any sort of meta.

    SG seems to be going all out on those improvements

    Moonlight Connections - Nice,I will take Ruele

    Penguin Improvements - well finally,I suggested that long ago,thanks
    Can we do something about the dogs too?

    If a dog is max leveled and have no gear on it,allow us to store in in a slot like the penguins

    Make all dogs get the same(exp bonus)and make them only one element(I may be wrong but I don't think there is any point of a dog which will be used as a fodder to be a specific element,that's only for penguins)

    Penguin Mileage - nice,no more wasted exp while using max leveled heroes

    Catalyst Improvements - nice

    AP Shop Improvements - coooool,finally

    New type of Side Story - Advent - looks interesting
