To show their appreciation to the millions of fans who made this achievement possible, Ateam Inc. is holding a 7 Million Download Anniversary Campaign!

Special Event held to mark the occasion!

As a follow up to the recently added Relica feature, a new Emporium system has been added to the game as well. Players collect Jewels through various methods such as defeating Event Bosses. These Jewels can then be exchanged at the Emporium for Energy Potions, Skill Point Resets, and other Items - including many which are normally sold for Soul Points in the in-game Shop! The more often players participate in in-game Events, the more Jewels they’ll be able to collect and exchange for Items to gain an edge in Battles and future Events!To commemorate the launch of this new feature, a new Event called ‘Luminous Cavern’ will begin on May 30. Jewels will be awarded for defeating Bosses in this Event, so players are encouraged to hunt down and annihilate as many as possible!
