How does it works

The Moon Light Heroes Headhunting Event is available for all players who have cleared chapter 10 of the 1st main story chapter, and is available for 90 days.

Players will be rewarded with special points once they complete specific tasks such as daily missions, weekly missions and spending energies on stages. These points can then be converted into a Headhunting ticket that will headhunt a hero and fill up 1 of the slots in the event screen. Each headhunt can only be done once daily and cost 800 points for each slot (40 for the first headhunt).

Headhunting Process

Once players have spent the points to headhunt moonlight heroes, the slots will be filled with the heroes they can pick once the recruit system unlock. Players will need to headhunt a total of 20 heroes (= 15240 points) in order to unlock the recruitment system. Players can also spend points to re-headhunt some duplicate heroes in order to broaden the selection of moonlight heroes that they are allowed to recruit.

Once the recruit system is active, players can recruit a hero from the slots for 2400 coins and add that hero to the roster Permanently with no strings attached.

Exchange Shop

In addition to the headhunting system, a special exchange shop will be available for players to exchange their points for special items, including the Promotion Potion which instantly promotes a hero to 6* without using up any resources.

However, players should only start exchanging things in the shop once they have managed to unlock and recruit the 5* Moon Light Hero of their choice.

How to Quickly Recruit a 5* Moon Light Hero

The quickest and less resource consuming way players can get the recruitment system to open is to finish daily and weekly tasks for each week in addition to spending as much energy as possible. 

Each Daily Tasks are worth 50 points, each 100 energies spent are worth 5 points and if the player reaches 100 points for the Weekly tasks, they will be rewarded with 2800 points, therefore, the most surefire way to get there quickly is to clear weekly and daily tasks constantly. With this, within ~ 7 weeks, players will be able to recruit the hero of their choosing.
