Features and Improvements
|Code and Server||Status||Reward|
|1.6 Livestream Characters|
|Klee (RERUN)||Kazuha (NEW)|
The first Character Banner in Version 1.6 is Klee's Banner Rerun, which will be followed by Kazuha's Banner. Klee's rerun will most probably be released the same time as Version 1.6, and Kazuha's Banner will most probably be released the same day Klee's Banner ends.
|List of New Weapons|
|Freedom-Sworn||Dodoco Tales||Mitternachts Waltz|
The 4-Star Dodoco Tales Catalyst has confirmed to be a reward from the Midsummer Island Adventure Event, while the 5-Star Freedom-Sworn Sword and 4-Star Mitternachts Waltz Bow will most probably be rate-up weapons in the Epitome Invocation banner.
The 1.6 Livestream had no mention of new Artifacts or Artifact Domains, so there may not be any new ones in the upcoming version.
|Dodo Land Area Previews|
The 1.6 livestream featured teaser images of a new area: the mysterious islands of Dodo Land! This new area will host new 1.6 events, world quests, and more.
|Inazuma Concept Art|
Chapter 2: Prologue will be released in Version 1.6, and the livestream teased Kazuha's Inazuma origin! This may suggest that the Archon Quests after this will take place in Inazuma.
List of All Archon Quests
The livestream didn't confirm if Kazuha would get a Story Quest, but past 5-Star Character releases are usually accompanied by their Story Quests so it's possible! Here's a list of Story Quests so far:
List of All Story Quests
Dodoco's disappearance will have you venturing a whole new area: Dodo Land! The Midsummer Island Adventure event is similar to the Windblume Festival as the main event has multiple mini games for players to challenge. Summon and sail the Waverider boat to explore the new area and its features!
Midsummer Island Adventure Guide
Magical ''Echoing Conches'' will be available throughout the event, whispering hidden tales to you. Collect these Echoing Conches to receive event rewards, including a new character skin feature: Barbara's new outfit, Summertime Sparkle!
Echoing Tales Event Guide
A mechanism called the ''Dodo Fortress'' will shoot different types of KaboomBalls at you, which you can send back with a Dodo Guard! Damage and defeat as many Dodo Fortresses as you can, and get the most amount of Enigma Gears to exchange for event rewards.
You can also play KaboomBall Kombat in Co-Op mode! Note however that only two players at a time are allowed to play.
Kaboomball Kombat Event Guide
Defeat the various enemies that invade Dodo Land at your preferred difficulty level. The higher the difficulty level, the higher the event score! Berserker enemies and round buffs will appear throughout the match to spice things up as well.
The event challenges are scattered all around the archipelago, which gives us another reason to explore the new area!
Never-Ending Battle Event Guide
Version 1.6 will bring us a new feature: character skins! Only Jean and Barbara have been shown to have character skins, but we can expect that they'll add more in the future.
List of All Character Outfits
Jean's character skin will only be available in the shop, and can be bought with Genesis Crystals. You get a discount on the skin for a limited time, so buy as early as you can if you're willing to spend!
Barabara's skin is a reward from Echoing Tales, but will also be available in the shop after Version 1.6.
|Jean||Limited: Genesis Crystals x1350|
|Permanent: Genesis Crystals x1680|
|Barbara||Limited: Free from Echoing Tales|
|After 1.6: Genesis Crystals x1680|
You can have up to 8 character companions in your Serenitea Pot at a time, and they can be placed in both indoor and outdoor areas. Characters who stay in the Serenitea Pot can be interacted with, and even gain Companionship EXP for the duration of their stay!
Housing System & Serenitea Pot Guide
|Character Companion Rewards|
Each character has a Favorite Furnishing Set, and you can get rewards and special dialogues from them by placing it, including Primogems!
When using the Adventurer’s handbook to track down elite monsters for materials, you will now automatically be guided to the next monster of the same kind once you defeat it.
