What Is Assignment

A System For Sending Characters To Collect Materials

The Assignment is a system in which up to two sets of characters are sent to locations to collect materials. No Trailblaze Power (Stamina) or other resources are required, and materials can be collected over 4~20 hours of real-time.

Assigned Characters Can Also Be Setup In Teams And Battles

You can use the characters that are sent for Assignments in battles and teams just like any other character. These characters won't become unavailable while being sent, so it's best to send them as soon as possible once the Assignments system is unlocked. Even in the early game when you don't have many characters.

Recommended Assignments

EXP Materials & Credits Are Recommended

If there is no particular material that you're looking for, it is recommended to collect Credits (Money) and EXP Materials that are originally collected by consuming Trailblaze Power. Since they are used to upgrade all kinds of characters and are useful for characters obtained in the future, they are less likely to be wasted.

Select The Materials You Need

If there are materials that are essential for Trace upgrades or Ascension, those can be prioritized. It saves you the trouble of defeating enemies over and over again.
