Hello. This is Epic Seven.

 

First, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our Heirs who joined Epic Seven as we celebrated the Ezeran Foundation Day. We were able to successfully host the E7WC and celebrate the Ezeran Foundation Day, thanks to the interest shown by our Heirs. We will continue working hard to provide more enjoyable content with your valued opinions.

 

Following the Awaken update in April, we are informing you of the update plans for the second half of 2022.

We would like to introduce the things that we are preparing, including the content introduced in Merurin’s Express Mail which was revealed during the E7WC Livestream.

 

 Introducing the Update Improvement Direction

We are preparing the updates for the second half of 2022 under the following four frameworks.

  1. Gameplay improvements
  2. Support growth for new & returning Heirs
  3. New content
  4. QoL/UI Improvements

We would like to introduce each part in more detail.

 

1. Gameplay Improvements

As you take your precious time to play Epic Seven, we want your time spent playing Epic Seven to be as meaningful as possible. Therefore, we are improving existing content and adding the Background Battling function.

 

 Background Battling Function (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)


A Background Battling system with cute pets will be added. It is a system that enables you to play other content manually after delegating the existing Repeat Battling. Since you won’t be able to use Repeat Battling while Background Battling is in progress, we look forward to you enjoying other content such as Enhancing Equipment, Hero Growth, etc. which you could not do while Repeat Battling.

 

 Episode 1 Region Reward Improvements (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

Improvements will be made to Episode 1 regional stage missions.

Since most players do not have enough Heroes to meet the requirements while clearing Episode 1, we are decreasing the overall difficulties of the stage missions so that they do not require various Classes and Elements of Heroes to clear them. In addition, we are increasing the Region Reward based on the number of stars obtained in the stage mission as rewards for clearing stages in Adventure.

 

UI improvements will also be made so that it is easier to identify the regions where you have not received the rewards

 

 Episode & Side Story Revamp (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

Currently, Side Stories are carried out regardless of your Episode progression. So, if you have not yet cleared the episode featuring the side story’s main character, it was difficult to understand the Hero’s story and its charm. Therefore, we are strengthening the connection between Episodes and Side Stories so that you can unlock personalized Side Stories according to their Episode progress. Once you have cleared enough Side Stories, summon the Hero from one of the Side Stories you cleared using the Story Banner.

 

Moreover, to speed up the completion progress between Episodes 2~3, the quest difficulties of unlocking AP Exchange, Trust Missions, and the price of some essential items will be reduced.

 

 Unrecorded History Renewal (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

Unrecorded History must be played to obtain Epic Catalysts and unlock Moonlight’s Blessing, but it has the same stages as Episode 1, so having to clear about 220 stages again is a very tiresome experience. 

 

Accordingly, Unrecorded History will be renewed to compress the story and reduce the process required to obtain desired Catalysts and unique rewards. In the future, we will provide you with more information on the Episode & Side Story Revamp and Unrecorded History renewal through Merurin’s Express Mail.

 

2. Growth Support for New & Returning Heirs

Epic Seven has welcomed many Heirs for the last 4 years, and, we are still welcoming many Heirs to this day.New & returning Heirs need to strengthen various Heroes to enjoy Epic Seven's content properly. However, it takes relatively much time to raise Heroes and acquire Equipment compared to existing Heirs who are familiar with the game.

 

To improve this, we are preparing various updates in the second half of 2022, in a way that can also help existing Heirs who need to strengthen their Heroes.

 

 Grace of Growth (To be updated on September 1st)

 

The first content is called Grace of Growth (Formerly known as Grace of Unity) Grace of Growth will be available to all Heirs after clearing Episode 1, Stage 10-10, and it will be released with the September 1st update.

 

After registering one Hero for Grace of Growth, the Hero will receive Grace of Growth according to the required conditions for each stage. The conditions and effects (Stage, Level, Awakened, Skill Enhance) for each stage are as follows:


Stage

Unlock Condition

Grade

Level

Awakened

Skill Enhance

Stage 1

Clear Episode 1, Stage 10-10 - Unlock Grace of Growth system

6

+6

Stage 4

Must own a Starting 5 Grade Hero with fully enhanced skills

6

+12


If the Hero has a naturally high growth rate, then a high growth rate will be applied.

(Ex. If the registered Hero has a maximum of +15 enhanced skills, Grace of Growth will be granted with +15 enhanced skills instead of +12)

 

When a Hero is granted Grace of Growth, they will be restricted from the following: Arena Defense Team, Guild War Defense Team, World Boss Supporter, Supporter. However, the Hero can be used for other PVE and PVP contents, including World Arena. Grace of Growth will not be granted for Ancient Inheritance, as it focuses on growth by playing the content. Players will be able to obtain more details in the update notice.

 

Once you withdraw a registered Hero, you will not be able to re-register a Hero for 3 days.

 

 Web Event “Call to Adventure” (To be updated on September 1st)


 The Web Event, “Call to Adventure" will be held for new and returning Heirs so that they can receive various benefits and gifts at any time.

 

The Web event, “Call to Adventure” will be available for all Heirs following the September 1st update. It will provide rewards such as +9 Free Covenant Summon 7-day-buff and other currencies that help you grow Heroes and enhance Equipment as you complete the listed missions. Reward details are as listed as follows.

  • +30% Battle EXP (14 days)
  • 30% Gold Increase (14 days)
  • Free Unequip Buff (14 days)

It is very important to provide appropriate play guides to new and returning Heirs, so we will continue to prepare various events for them.

 

 Beginner's Guide Web Event Expansion (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022) 

We introduced the first beginner’s guide event page via the Rise update last year for the Heirs playing Episode 1. This year, we introduced the Hunt Expert Challenge! event page and the MolaGora Challenge! event page via the Awaken update to help our Heirs with their growth.

 

After a thorough investigation, we found out that new Heirs needed additional support after clearing Episode 1 to successfully defeat boss monsters in Hunt. Accordingly, we will provide a new beginner’s guide for new Heirs to acquire currencies for Hero growth and Equipment Charms. Through this event, new Heirs will be able to grow Heroes and enhance Equipment so that they can complete the Hunt Expert Challenge!, the MolaGora Challenge! and other PvE and PvP content.

 

Like any other web event update, we will prepare it so that all Heirs can participate in the event.


 Hero Growth Support Check-In Event (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

Through the rewards provided by Adventurer’s Path Quest, the time and effort to promote a Hero to 6★ for the first time has reduced significantly. However, it still takes a very long time to grow the Hero to level 60 and promote the next Hero to 6★.

 

To assist Heirs with the process, we prepared a Hero Support Check-In Event to support our Heirs with growing and promoting Heroes after promoting their first 3 Heroes. All Heirs can participate in the event after the update without any time limit.

 Others (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022) 

One of the Moonlight Blessing mission difficulties will also be decreased so that it could help new Heirs with their growth. The Arena mission will be changed to reach Gold V League in Arena, instead of Gold I.

 

Another difficult mission in Moonlight Blessing, “Obtain all region rewards in all chapters in Unrecorded History”, will have its difficulty decreased along with the aforementioned Unrecorded History story renewal. 

 

Moonlight Blessing will be available under the Hero menu after the update, which will let you see the list of acquirable Heroes all at once, including Connection and Specialty Change.



In addition, Equipment Storage will be expanded up to 700 slots and the Waiting Room will be expanded up to 300 slots.

 

3. New Content Update

As you can enjoy more content with the Background Battling update, we plan to provide new quality content updates for our Heirs to enjoy.

 

 Moonlight Theater (To be updated on September 1st)

 

We would like to introduce stories from different worlds in Epic Seven to our Heirs with the Moonlight Theater. All Heirs who cleared Episode 2, Stage 10-10 can enjoy the stories from Moonlight Theater.

The first story that we have prepared is the story called “Neither God Nor Devil Exists”, which is a story about Cidonia in another world. 

 

The first episode of “Neither God Nor Devil Exists” will be available for free and the next episode will be open after a week. You can acquire Theater Tickets as rewards if you have Heroes appearing in “Neither God Nor Devil Exists” and use them to watch the next episode immediately. Theater Tickets can be purchased using Gold and you can acquire 50 Mystic Medals as a reward when you watch it for the first time.

 

Moonlight Theater stories will be updated following future Hero updates.

 

 Three Team Arena Battles (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

We are preparing content where three teams of three Heroes battle in the Arena.

We apologize for the delay in the schedule as we continue to review the content so that it can have the appropriate level of strategy and popularity.

Three Team Arena Battles will be casual PvP content, different from Arena and World Arena.

We expect you to experience different types of battles from World Arena or the existing Arena as it will be a best of 3 battles where there will be 3 Heroes on each team instead of 4.

We are also preparing for the NPC Challenge Arena revamp and the addition of the World Arena Replay option.




 Labyrinth Revamp (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

There will be three main ways to revamp Labyrinth.

 

1. The Existing Labyrinth Revamp and Addition of Exploration Rate Reward

As the progress of the Episodes and the growth of Heirs has exceeded that of Normal Labyrinth progress for a long time, we plan to revamp the existing Labyrinth rewards and shorten some paths in Labyrinths so that you can move on to the next Labyrinth faster.



We will be adding rewards according to the total exploration rate so that you can enjoy exploring Labyrinth more. We will also reset the progress of all Labyrinth so that you can receive all the rewards once again as we are adding the exploration rate rewards.

 

2. Changing Azmakalis (normal) to a normal Labyrinth / Addition of Challenge Mode for Azmakalis (Hell)

There is very little reason for players to play Azmakalis in normal difficulty repeatedly as your average Equipment level far exceeds that of the rewards from Azmakalis (normal). Therefore, Azmakalis (normal) will be changed to a normal Labyrinth, like Great Farche Labyrinth and Nixied’s Sanctum. Instead, we will add the new Challenge Mode in hell difficulty. Heroes cannot be used again, and difficult bosses will drop more various items.

 

3. Addition of a New Labyrinth, Meldrec


The New Labyrinth, Meldrec, will be the first Labyrinth set in Cidonia. The adventure will take place in the world of ritual to save Malicus, the Lord of Fire. The Meldrec Labyrinth will be updated as a normal Labyrinth.

 

 

4. QoL Update and UI Improvements

 Hero/Equipment UI Improvements (To be updated on September 1st)

The Hero UI will be updated and divided into two parts. 

There will be a Standard screen, where you can check information related to battle,

and a Details screen, where you can check the Hero Story and Friendship information.




You can manage your most used Heroes more easily by adding them as favorites on the Standard Screen. You can also look at more Heroes on a screen by using the Multiple View feature.



Equipment UI will also be improved so that you can move any equipment from Equipment Details to Storage or reforge the equipment in the Steel Workshop by tapping the Reforge button.



 New Lobby Types (To be updated in the 4th Quarter of 2022)

We will update new Lobby types so that you can meet your Heroes in different places, other than the Pub Lobby that has been with our Heirs for a long time.

 

We are preparing new Lobby types where you can get a glimpse of the various places and Heroes in Epic Seven. Moreover, we will also provide a setting where you can set your Hero or illustration as your background.



5. Ezeran Foundation Day Check-In Event

We prepared an event to celebrate the fourth Ezeran Foundation Day. The Ezeran Foundation Day Check-In Event will be updated on September 1st and will be available on All Event Details. By checking in for 15 days, you can receive a 5★ Covenant Hero Selector.

We also prepared other celebration gifts, including Ezeran Foundation, E7WC Livestream gifts, etc.

Please look forward to it.

 

This concludes the updates for the second half of 2022.


※ The content introduced through this announcement is still under development and may change during the actual update.

※ The update schedule may change depending on circumstances.

 

We introduced some of the update content via Merurin’s Express Mail videos and plan to introduce upcoming update content with more of Merurin’s Express Mail videos, so please look forward to them.

 

Thank you once again to our Heirs who have been with Epic Seven for a long time. We will strive to become the best Epic Seven team that provides you with the best gameplay experience.

 



Thank you for being with us this year.

    BESTIf you still have problem with gear 4 years later, this game isn't for you. It's like asking chess to have more action 🤔

    BESTEvery major event always has an update for returning players but you never address the thing that made them quit in the first place, which is the gear system. Maybe do that instead so you'll only focus on new and oldplayers.

    BESTYou are trying, but focus on the main issues first, dont just throw random stuff at the wall in hope it sticks. 


    Most important: Atrocius random loot box like Gear Crafting and LVLing system. Thats the one biggest issue.


    How to fix: Lighten up but not remove RNG completely. Replace the current system used for one similar to Alchemyst Steple (but no stat and set stones needed, those are obsolete. Only crafting mats and gold needed) Alchemyst crafting should be upgraded to Artenas crafting event and have a limit 1 per month on it.


    Thus from normal crafting you always get the set you want with the desired main. RNG the subs and subsequent leveling. It will still take time to get good pieces but at least you will get them at more reasonable rate.


    Second: Remove the lowest current roll for leveling gear (IE: Speed 1, Eff 4, etc). Currently: 5 rolls in the pool. Change it to 4.

    Remove charms from gear lvling entirely. Gold and Stigma should be used instead (drop rate increased).

      d34thscyth34Except it's not. Chess is a defined game that doesn't rely on a f-ing metric ton of luck. What you see is what you get so, yes, if you aren't willing to spend tons of hours learning how to play the game as it is, don't play it.

      The gear system in E7 does rely on a f-ing ton of luck which makes the experience wildly different among players. Spending tons of time learning how the system works doesn't impact as much in your resulting "playing ability" as it does in chess, nowhere near as much, because no matter what, you are essentially just making a bet... every. step. of. the. way.


      And if you are saying "this game is for the lucky, don't complain if you don't get lucky", then yes, in that case the game ***** and it's definitely not for me. But I rather read that from the devs themselves.

      MarkmumiNo one is asking for a "socialist kind of gear system", at least I'm not and most comments I read about it.

      We are asking for a less "lottery kind of gear system". You, the white knights of E7, like so much to take things to extremes. 

      Not only the roster of heroes has increased a lot, there are many ways to gear most of them. The fun should be in experimentation and the current system is way too punishing for that.


      What's the friggin' point of them making easier to get units if I can only kind of properly gear a handful after sooo much time?


      Also, if they really are wanting to go through with the "esportification" thing, there must be a point in the game where it's really about ability and not getting outgeared.

      There is no PC client. Android is working on a PC app store that will allow you to play games (and use other Google apps) on your PC. They are planning for that.

      NoxusXIXVWhen you roll the result of the roll can have 5 different tiers/levels.

      Easiest example: Speed rolls can range from 1 - 5.

      By reducing it to 4 and removing the lowest one, you reduce the value drop of gear slightly.

      Meaning the the rolls would be 2 - 5. The new lowest roll would be 2. Still meh when you roll it but not so brutal like getting a 1 (or 4% Eff for example).

      epic7#u4flo8Ohh I understand what you mean now, I was thinking maybe you meant instead of gear rolling 5 times with every +3 enhance that gear should roll 4 times lol But yeah removing the lowest roll would be great, I recently penta rolled speed with +2 everytime...

    2022.08.28 08:58 (UTC+0)

    Sounds great so far~

    Would be sick though if you could add some more sorting options for equipment and heroes - sorting for sub-stat values on gear, and constellations for heroes for example~

    Omfg, finally labyrinth update. Also, new UI looks better.

  • images
    2022.08.28 09:20 (UTC+0)

    I like new labyrinth and QoL changes but can we get more new exciting content?
    The collab heroes were not that great.
    We're still waiting on Brinus.

    In the past there were things like new ways to improve gear like mod stones or reforge. New hunt for new set. I know new sets are coming so that's good.
    New mode like AI or World boss but I don't see much new stuff. Hopefully developers add some new things to get excited over.
    Hunt 14 would be exciting if it gets released.
    You could also add back revised charm dungeon.

    Guild war needs improvement.
    New 4 star heroes? ML Furious?

    2022.08.28 09:30 (UTC+0)

    I'm quite excited for the Grace of Growth function and I've been waiting to hear more background story of the ML units so the ML Theater is much welcomed. I'm so glad that after so much nagging, the labyrinth system is getting changed.

    I propose to forget the expedition lvl4 and instead try to implement the labyrinth changes sooner. Also I'm curious if we could revamp the world boss?

      2022.08.29 01:18 (UTC+0)

      That's a lie. It's like believing you will get rich eventually if you just keep playing at the casino.


      Spoiler alert: you most likely won't.


      No amount of knowledge will change the fact that you are making a bet every step of the way in the current gear system and that the chances are against you. Sure, you need the knowledge to make "the best of it" but that isn't the same as having "good chances".


      This system wouldn't be a bad in a game where you can actually farm as much as you like, but hey, you can't in this game. And since it's obvious they won't remove the stamina system then they have to adjust the gear system.

    All of this is great and all, but I wanted offline Farming. And when are you going to add a VR experience to the game, it's a very simple task! I want more RBG 4*s and Aravi needs a Buff.
