Overview and How to Unlock

Difficult Battles with a Time Limit

time limit

Shiyu Defense is a difficult challenge where you need to defeat all enemies within the time limit. You can get rewards such as Polychromes and Master Copies depending on how fast you defeat all the enemies. There are 2 sections; Stable Node which has 10 stages that are fixed and Critical Node which has stages that get updated periodically.

Stable Node- 10 stages
- Complete 1 stage to unlock the next
- First time completion rewards only
Critical Node- Complete all 10 stages in Stable Node to unlock
- Stages are updated periodically
- You can receive rewards after every update

Unlocked in Main Story Chapter 2

unlocked device

Shiyu Defense is unlocked during Main Story Chapter 2. You can access it from the Outpost Interior, on the left of Hollow Zero. You can also access it from your Compendium.

Shiyu Defense Strategy & Tips

Use Attribute that gets a Buff

stage buff

Each stage gives you a buff for a specific Attribute. This Attribute also matches with the enemies' weakness so it's highly recommended to use that Attribute. However, if you don't have a character strong enough you won't be able to win just because of the buff, so you can use other Attributes if you wish.

Gets Harder after Fourth Frontier

enemy level

The enemy level gets high as you progress through the stages. When the enemies reach Lvl 30 it will be difficult to complete if you're still in Chapter 2, so progress the story to raise your Reputation first.

How To Raise Reputation Rank

Initial Goal is Completing the 3rd Frontier

Completing the 3rd Frontier

When you complete the Third Frontier in Shiyu Defense Stable Node, you can obtain the Ice Attribute character, Soukaku. There are many enemies in the early game that are weak against Ice, so we recommend trying to get Soukaku early on. Once you unlock Shiyu Defense, prioritize completing the Third Frontier.

Soukaku Best Build & Team

Third Frontier is Relatively Easy

The First, Second and Third Frontier in Stable Node should not be too difficult to complete. The characters you get early in the game, including the Pre-Registration Rewards, have Attributes that the enemies are weak against. This means all players have a chance to get Soukaku, so it's definitely worth going for.

Results
