Granblue Radiance – 3/31/2016 – New Scenario Event: Rowain vs Robo Katarina
Greetings Skyriders, having trouble balancing AP potions or seeds left this 1/2 AP/BP campaign? Wait a second, this line sounds pretty familiar. In any case Rowain’s quest for love on this April Foolish day begins!
This article is still being written and will be updated as more information comes to light.
How To Progress In The Event
To start, the event has 6 Event episodes that require 0 AP to do, and tell a the story of the event. There are a number of weird bosses throughout the event, which might give a lower level player some trouble.
Solo Battle Portion
These battles are eventually unlocked as you progress through the story. You should do them to get the initial Treasure Crystals. They drop bronze/silvere badges and a meager amount of Event Points, but they also drop the materials (Mountain of Fries) for summoning the Botched Order event multibattle, which is the primary purpose of these solo battles.
As you progress through the story, you’ll eventually be forced to fight these Multibattles. This is where you’ll get the bulk of your Gold Badges, Event Points, and Event Gatcha Tickets. If you’re too weak to take these on alone, don’t worry about opening the battle to strangers, you’ll still get the Treasure crystals for the first clear and be able to continue the story.
As always, the more damage to deal to the bosses, the more Event Points you get per given battle. Furthermore, if you are the person who starts the battle, or gets MVP, you will get a bonus Red treasure chest and extra Event Gatcha tickets.
Usually what you do is summon and kill the Extreme boss enough times and you’ll randomly get access to a solo Hell battle against the event boss. Clearing this gets you a Blue Crystal and also unlocks the R/SR versions, so it’s worth doing if you are strong enough. It costs 0 AP, so you can also use it as a free chance to get extra Gold Badges and Event Points/Tickets.
You can take on a challenge quest with the special characters just added to the Gatcha. This is mostly for fun and will reward you with a Blue Crystal at the end.
Event Specific Rewards
SR Rowain – He’s kind of weird water character (his ougi doesn’t deal damage, so it doesn’t work in chains), but if you have a Samurai or someone else with a 200% gauge, he can work with them to get a full chain.
SSR Summon – This summon is not a bad fire summon for starting players. It starts with a 50% Fire Elemental Up with a Ougi Gauge Debuf while not maxed, but will probably lose this drawback once you max it, but it hasn’t been maxed quite yet, so that has yet to be seen.
Silver Bracelet / Razor Belt– The belt (axe) comes with ATK UP, while the bracelet (fist) comes with HP UP. Their stats aren’t overwhelming, but could make decent gear for those still trying to fill out their SR fire slots, but really not that overwhelming.
Blue Rose Bouquet – This an ATK up Fire elemental sword, which is great as these aren’t easy to come by via normal means. If you intend to play Fire, this can be an upgrade from the gatcha swords you have.
Getting SR Rowain
You get this character by starting the event, and as usual you need to build up points with him in your party to keep him after the event is over. You need 750 points to keep him after the event, so put him in your party and fight together with him.
The SSR Summon
You can get one via Contribution Points, but you’ll need to use Event Gatcha Tickets to get the remainder out of the box.
A special battle with only preset characters. Though this battle has been confirmed on the official website, there hasn’t been any confirmation on how to unlock it, so it may be a time unlocked quest.
There are now daily rewards for this event. This particular one says to enter and win event multi battles. It seems these rewards seem to refresh daily, so if you’re hungry for crystals, this doesn’t seem like a bad way to go.
Getting Event Rewards
Bronze/Silver Badges – As usual, there isn’t anything particular good in this category for collecting Bronze or Silver badges, but you’ll probably eventually end up with a bunch of them just trying to get materials to open Multibattles. You’ll end up picking extra JP, tickets, Multibattle materials, and an SR weapon here or there in this category, but it’s nothing to aim for specifically.
Gold Badges – You get these by fighting the event multibattles. Most of the rewards are similar to the Bronze and Silver Badge category this time around, though you’ll get more tickets and materials to summon the Xolotl boss battle. In particular, the final reward at 300 Gold Badges is another SSR Weapon.
Contribution Points – There are a ton of Silver and Golden Certificates in the event points, so if you’re in need of them, you can collect quite a few here. You’ll get the majority of your event weapons here as well.
Also remember, the point dagger works for this event, so if you’re looking to collect lots of points, make sure it’s in your weapon grid.
Event Gatcha – The main prize of every Gatcha Box is the special event weapon. There aren’t any AP Potions in the Gatcha, so the only reason you’ll refrain from resetting it ASAP is that you want extra JP from the Gatcha Box. It’s a matter of how much you want JP you want from the box before you reset it.
I think that’s all I know about the event for now. If there’s anything I think I missed, come bug us on our Discord: https://discord.gg/0kjJEzNaljVm3Opt
