With The Miracle of Dragonyule being a thing of the past, Dragalia Lost has kicked off its festivities to help ring in the New Year! With it arrives a new event, summon showcase, bundles, and more! The latest Raid event in Dragalia Lost has kicked off dubbed “New Year’s Tidings: Fortune from Afar”, and with it comes various new event elements, limited-time units, dragons, and more. Are you ready to celebrate with the cast of Dragalia Lost and some new faces from Hinomoto?
What is a raid event?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with what a Raid event is, especially in gacha games, they’re a special type of mission that a lot of the time, sees players having to band together, in a bid to take down a big bad monster or fight another group of players.
Raid Events are notorious for ramping up with difficulty and offering great rewards for those to earn them and in gacha games, those rewards can often include a rare character/hero/demon and etc.
What is “New Years Tidings Fortune from Afar”?
New Years Tidings Fortune from Afar is Dragalia Lost’s fourth Raid event and will be a limited time event that has a central elemental theme.(Example: Loyalty’s Requiem was a Flame based event that took place in a volcano, had players fight flame attributed monsters and take down a powerful Raid Boss, which had a flame typing.)
During this kind of a Raid Event, players can obtain a new character and play through a special story chapter, made up of playable levels and story-focused instalments. There are also Boss Battles and Raid Boss levels where players can team up with the teams of other players, resulting in an epic battle of 16 adventurers against the Raid Boss. Achieving success can earn players plenty of great rewards.
What can I expect from New Years Tidings from Afar?
By achieving the maximum friendship, the temporary character Botan will stick around, as you have earned the right to keep hold of her, long after the event has ended. Botan will also keep the level you have attained with them. Additionally, it has been speculated that she is a 4* who is of the shadow typing and uses a lance.
Furthermore, if the event ends, whilst you’re still in a battle, you will be allowed to finish it as the results are being calculated. You will also receive rewards based on your performance during the whole event.
Again, provided New Years Tidings from AfarRaid event behaves as it should, players will be able to earn Blazons and Emblems. The more emblems you have, the greater the “event-specific wyrmprints” players will be able to add to their collection. As for blazons, they can be used to summon “event-specific dragons, wyrmprints and other rewards.”
As for the actual battles themselves, especially those that require 16 adventurers working together, it is actually 4 players working together, with each one able to use 4 of their own characters. The battles will also have three difficulties: Beginner, Standard and Expert.
Anyone who wishes to join a room, are free to do so, at the cost of Getherwings, but if you wish to be the host, you will need Otherworld Fragments, which are earned from Boss Battles.
The upside to this, is if you beat a Raid Battle on the expert difficulty, you’ll also be able to do an extra raid battle. Should you fail to beat the Special battle, you’ll be allowed to try it again and again, until you beat it and it disappears.
Lastly, throughout the duration of the event, there will be Daily and Limited event quests for players to complete.
Along with the above Raid event, a new Summon Showcase has also been added featuring new adventurers of the “Shadow” element and even one of the “Wind” element.
The Summon Showcase: Eastern Emissaries introduces three new adventurers, one new dragon, and two new featured wyrmprints. It’ll be available till January 10.
Marshiten is the 5* focus dragon of the Eastern Emissaries Summon Showcase. She represents the boar and is of the Shadow element.
Ieyasu is a 5* blade-wielding hero who is of the Shadow element.
Sazanka is a 4* Axe wielding hero who is of the Shadow element.
Finally, Addis is the final new character who is a 4* blade-wielding hero of the wind element.
Lastly, the developers have started a Log-In bonus until January 25. Login for a total of seven days to receive up to three 10x Tenfold Summon tickets, & a total of 2,000 Wyrmite.
As always, we hope you found this guide helpful.
