■ About Pawns of Loki
Pawns of Loki is an event held in a world controlled by Loki where you can participate in the game of the gods. Use Forma, special units made in the image of Heroes, that you've recruited into your brigade or from your friends' Heroes. Achieve a high score to reach a high Tier and earn rewards!
Each round will be held over a 2-day period.
There's explaining the Pawns of Loki event. A video featuring Loki explaining some tips and strategies is available as well. Be sure to give it a watch!
■ Steps for Playing the Event
1. Draft Forma units in the Setup Phase.
2. Automatically battle foes in the Battle Phase.
3. Your score is calculated based on the results of the battle and type bonuses!
Steps 1 through 3 are repeated for nine to twelve turns. After a set number of turns have taken place, your total score will be recorded.
■ Setup Phase
This is the phase where you gather the Forma you will use in the Battle Phase.
Every turn, you will receive an allotment of war funds equal to twice the turn number. Use these war funds to draft Forma from the shop. The Forma available in the shop are selected at random from the Heroes in your brigade. Their levels are also determined at random, and the higher the Forma's level, the more war funds it costs to draft them.
・ You draft Forma by moving them from the row of Forma at the bottom of the screen to the team window in the center of the screen.
・ You can discharge Forma you don't need and receive war funds in return by moving them from your team to the bottom of the screen. (You will only receive a full refund the first time you discharge a Forma each turn. For each subsequent discharge on the same turn, you will get half of the war funds back.)
・ You can tap the button to the top left of your draftable Forma to refresh your selection. (Only the first refresh each turn is free. Each subsequent refresh on the same turn will cost war funds.)
・ The green window shows Forma that will participate in the battle. The gray window shows reserve Forma that will not participate in the battle.
You will still have access to any remaining war funds in the next Setup Phase.
About Trio Forma
Draft three of the same Forma onto your team to create a Trio Forma. The three Forma will merge into one and level up 10 levels.
Forma that become a Trio Forma will cost two additional war funds to draft. Also, all ally Forma and any Forma available in the shop when the Trio Forma is triggered will level up two levels.
■ Battle Phase
In this phase, you compete in battles and aim for a high score. In turns 1 through 3 you battle Emblian soldiers, and from turn 4 onward, teams created by other players appear as enemies.
Battles begin after changes to unit stats from combos and skill effects are applied.
When a certain combination of Forma are in your active team at the start of the Battle Phase, combos are triggered! During that turn and only that turn, all Forma in your team have their HP, Atk, Spd, Def, and Res increased. What's more, the effects of each combo stack!
About Forma Stats
About the Battle Phase
Battle Phase progression:
In the Battle Phase, all battles take place automatically. Units will attack the enemies closest to them, prioritizing targets in the below order, until all enemy or ally units can no longer act.
・ Forma in the front > Forma in the back
・ Forma with a high level
・ Forma with high Spd
・ Your Forma > Enemy's Forma
・ Forma on the left side of the battlefield screen
When a Forma attacks an enemy, they will move to the space in front of the enemy they are attacking as necessary.
Characteristics of the Battle Phase:
There are some aspects of Pawns of Loki battles that are different from standard battles.
・ Forma actions
Forma will only attack enemies and will not take other actions.
The below skills will not be activated.
Skills that activate at the beginning of the turn, such as Hone Atk, will activate after the Battle Phase combos are applied, according to how units are positioned on the board.
Skills that activate during combat have their effects calculated based on the Forma's position when the combat takes place, after having completed their movement.
■ Earning a Score
On each turn after the end of the Battle Phase, your score will go up based on the results of that turn.
○ Base Score
Your base score will be calculated based on difficulty level and Tier, plus an amount totaling how much HP your team has remaining minus how much HP the enemy team has remaining.
○ Bonus Weapon Type Score
If there are Forma with the bonus weapon type on your team on turn four or beyond, a bonus (up to a maximum of 100) will be added to your score based on their number.
Example of teams for which a bonus of 100 (the maximum) will be added:
|Team size||1 to 3||4 to 6||7 to 8|
|# of Forma with the bonus weapon type||1||2||3|
○ Victory Bonuses
You will get 200 points added to your score if your team's remaining HP is higher than the enemy team's. If you defeat all of the enemy team's units you will get an additional 50 points.
If there are still turns remaining after receiving your score, the next Setup Phase will begin. If you suffer more than two losses in a row in the Battle Phase, the amount of war funds you receive in the next Setup Phase will be 1.5 times the normal amount.
○ Cumulative Points Rewards
You can receive Orbs, Dragonflowers, Divine Codes (Ephemera), and more based on how many points you earn (how high your score goes).
You can earn three times as many points during the first game on any given day, so be sure to play each day!
○ Tier Rewards
If you attain a high score relative to other players, you will move up a Tier in Pawns of Loki. When you move up a Tier, you can earn Orbs and Hero Feathers. Tier rewards are distributed when the event ends.
Your Tier will carry over to the next Pawns of Loki event. You can play as much as you like during the event, so work hard to raise your Tier and aim for the prizes at the top of the Tier rewards!
