Cost 3 & 4 Echoes

If you defeat an Elite, Overload or Calamity Class enemy a certain number of times and no Echo appears, there is a mercy system that gives you a guaranteed Echo. The number of defeats is counted for each class, so always try to defeat the Echo you want when you reach the mercy limit.

Elite Class
(Cost 3)
If they don't appear after 1-3 defeats, then the 4th enemy you defeat will leave an Echo. Counted only as Elite Class.
Overlord Class
(Cost 4)
If they don't appear after the 1st one, then the next enemy will give you an Echo. Counted only as Overlord Class. If Enhanced Drop Rate count is still remaining, it will count towards that first.
Calamity Class
(Cost 4)
If they don't appear after the 1st one, then the next enemy will give you an Echo. Counted only as Calamity Class. If Enhanced Drop Rate count is still remaining, it will count towards that first.
Check Required Sonata Effect
Check for required sonata

Each Echo has 1 fixed Sonata Effect, and 1 character may need 2 or 5 to activate the set effect. The same Echo all have the same Sonata Effect, so you need to get the Echo that has the Sonata Effect you want.

Sonata Effect can be Rerolled with Tacet Field

By using Waveplates to challenge the Tacet Field, you can narrow down the Echo that has the Sonata Effect.

Farm Echoes
Get Required Echo

Defeat enemies that appear on the field or in dungeons. At random, Echoes will appear after defeating which you can absorb which allows you to get the Echo.

Aim for Echo that has high Rarity

The maximum level will increase with the rarity of the Echo. With a high rarity you can unlock more slots so the rarity will make a huge difference to the stats.

Reroll the Sonata Effect and First Stats
echo comparison

The first part that can be rerolled is the Sonata Effect and the first main stat that comes with the Echo. The stat granted will change randomly according to the cost of the Echo, so reroll the status that best fits the character's abilities.

Level Up for Tuning
Get the Wanted Tuning

Every time you increase the Echo level by 5, you can perform Tuning and get an additional Status. The additional Status and values you get are random so you want to reroll while making sure you don't run out of Tuning materials.

▶︎ How To Tune Echoes

Tuning can not be Reset

Once you have done Tuning, you can not reset the random Status or values you got. If you did not get the Status that you want, you will have to gather Echoes again to repeat the process.

If You Are Not Satisfied with the Tuning Results, Salvage Them
ResourcesRefund Rate
Sealed TubeSealed Tube60 to 80%

It is recommended to salvage Echoes that did not reach the ideal status as a result of Tuning. You can salvage by: Terminal → Backpack → Echoes → Trash icon. Salvaging echoes will return some of the strengthening resources, so then it can be used for the next rerolling.
