Spend time with Hiyori (New Year) and draw your daily fortune!
Heyas, Knights! We’re right against the start of the new year, but we’ve got some last-minute New Year’s-themed updates to share with you. With a bevy of holiday-themed festivities already live, we’ve dug into our schedule of secrets and found a new set of updates to share with you! This is the last update for 2021 - let’s make it count!
Not to be outdone by her Twinkle Wish counterparts, Hiyori is also putting on festive attire in the form of Hiyori (New Year)! The year may be changing, but Hiyori’s feisty cat-powered punch isn’t, even in her new outfit. With a remixed take on the physical damage dealing skills that we’ve all come to know and love, Hiyori (New Year) is sure to open up the new year with a bang.
Like other thematic characters, Hiyori (New Year) is a limited character, which means that she won’t be added into the regular Premium Gacha rotation after her time in the spotlight is over. Don’t worry, though - she’ll be available for redemption via character points, so you’re guaranteed an avenue to recruit her. Don’t miss this limited-time opportunity!
The Hiyori (New Year) Focus Gacha will run for 13 days, from 1/5, 23:00 UTC to 1/18, 22:59 UTC.
We’re also bringing back the 3★ Guaranteed Premium Gacha for another one-week encore! During its runtime, you’ll be able to perform a 10-draw for the regular price of 1500 Premium Jewels, but be guaranteed to encounter a 3★ character on the 10th draw!
You can use this opportunity as an extra chance to meet Hiyori (New Year), any other 3★ character usually available in the Premium Gacha that you’ve yet to meet. There are no other opportunities like this, so be sure to mark your calendar!
The 3★ Guaranteed Premium Gacha will be back for one week, from 1/5, 23:00 UTC to 1/12, 22:59 UTC.
Speaking on New Year’s - we’ve got one last thematic surprise for you! During this event campaign, visit the shrine and draw your omikuji, a traditional New Year’s-themed fortune. Depending on what result you get, you’ll also receive a small set of bonuses alongside it, including Jewels, Skip Tickets, Mana, and Experience Potions! It’s completely free to draw and you’ll also receive a lucky message alongside it.
The New Year’s Fortune Login Event will run for 11 days, from 1/1, 23:00 UTC to 1/12, 22:59 UTC. However—and this is critical—you’ll only be able to draw your fortune a maximum of seven times, across seven different days. Fortune favors the bold (but only up to a maximum of seven times).
Can you believe it’s been almost a year since we’ve started our journey together, Knights? Rest assured, we have a plethora of special events and campaigns in the works to celebrate, but we’re also getting the party started a little early with the 1st Anniversary Countdown Login Bonus! Log in each day during the campaign period, and you’ll find a nice 100 Jewel present waiting for you in the present box! Spend them wisely.
The 1st Anniversary Countdown Login Bonus runs for sixteen days, from 1/4, 11:00 UTC to 1/19, 22:59 UTC.
With so much coming in the new year - it’s time for another familiar limited-time challenge, as the Tower of Luna opens its doors once again for challengers to climb! The supercharged Dungeon is back once again and it has prepared yet another new set of 20 floors complete with unique monsters, Shadows, and a new set of bosses to beat, with plentiful rewards for your troubles. Don’t worry, your progress from the last Tower of Luna event is carried over and you can continue the ascent from the floor you left off. Remember, your party of characters can carry over between floors (assuming none of them hit 0 HP), and you can reset your characters to full HP once a day. Can you make the trek up to the 170th floor and complete the EX mission?
The Tower of Luna reopens its doors for five days, from 1/5, 13:00 UTC to 1/10, 15:59 UTC. If you haven’t done so already, you'll need to finish Main Story Quest 9-1 in order to access the Tower. We wish you good fortune, adventurers!
Prepare your allies and prepare your teams - it’s time to celebrate with another Clan Battle! Work with the aid of your fellow clan members to take on monsters too powerful for adventurers to handle alone. The January Clan Battle features a gauntlet of five bosses, and you’ll be able to do up to three clashes a day on whatever boss your clan’s currently on, earning a clash for every 300 stamina spent. After the event is over, you’ll earn precious Memory Shards, Clan Coins, and Jewels, depending on how well your clan did! The reward structure is the same as before, but you’ll earn Yori Memory Shards this time around.
The January Clan Battle will run from 1/13, 13:00 UTC to 1/18, 7:59 UTC.
A new year means new main content as well! Chart a path through Castalia Forest (West), featuring new enemies, new challenges, and new rewards for your troubles. Here, you'll find new equipment that can raise your characters to a maximum of 4 equips at rank 12, as well as new Hard Quest nodes for Lima, Yuki, and Ninon. Cutting your way through the greenery on your way through Area 20 will also unlock up to the end of Chapter 10 of the Main Story.
We'll also be increasing the level cap from 118 to 121. With the addition of new heroines and new content, you’ll want to start collecting Mana and EXP potions now! In addition, new BGM will be added to the Memorial Jukebox for further customization.
The January content drop lands on 1/5 at 13:00 UTC.
It just wouldn’t be the new year without another helping of “grot-two” which will be making its joyous return. During the Grotto Quest Double Drop Campaign, you’ll obtain twice the Mana and twice the EXP Potions when completing Grotto Quests. Talk about starting the new year the right way!
The Grotto Quest Double Drop Campaign runs for 12 days from 1/2, 13:00 UTC to 1/13, 12:59 UTC.
To mark the new year with even more of a bang, we’re also bringing back the Triple Drop Campaign. First up, we have the Normal Quest Triple Drop Campaign to help you collect triple equipment, Mana, and other items when completing Normal Quests during the campaign period.
The Normal Quest Triple Drop Campaign runs for ten days, from 1/13, 13:00 UTC to 1/22, 12:59 UTC.
For easy reading and accessibility, included below is a summarized version of all the updates announced today. Thank you for all your support, and we hope you continue to enjoy Princess Connect! Re: Dive!
See you in Astraea, Knights!
