Side Stories System Revamp Guide

As mentioned during the Epic Seven January Update Patch article regarding the changes for Epic Seven in January, the side story function has now been changed into a chronicle where players have the ability to actively change the side story that players want to play every 2 weeks, allowing players to redeem all rewards from all side stories from old to new eventually. In addition through the utilization of this function, players will be rewarded with the choice to pick certain special character rate up banners to be available for a certain amount of time by spending special currencies, allowing them to roll for the characters for a limited time.

Side Story Rerun and Rewards

With each side story unlocked, players will have the ability to completely playthrough and obtain all of the rewards from the side story like when it was released previously in the game as an event, meaning the event rewards won’t be cut and will remain in order for players to obtain during the duration of the side story.

Playing through the side stories will reward players with 30 bookmarks in total (=6 pulls), up to 200 skystones, 1 million gold and 2 molagoras in addition to various other character upgrading materials, allowing players to upgrade their characters and accumulate resources for future banners over time through exchanging for them in the shop and by clearing stages in the side stories.

It is important to take note that if players were to change side stories, players won’t be able to access the old side stories anymore, therefore players should clear out all the items from the side stories’ shops before changing side stories.

Special Side Story Banners Pick

Once players have cleared the side stories they picked, they will get access to a special item known as Story Collection that can be spent to unlock special character rate up banners for a limited time. Each side story will be associated with a specific character’s banner and players will need to have unlocked and played through the side story of that character in order to pick the rate up banner for that character.

Each character banner will last for 1 week once they have been unlocked and will have a 120 pity counter like other rate up banners of the same kind. For the first time players choose a rate up side story banner, it will cost 0 Story Collection , from the 2nd time onwards, each banners pick will cost 4 Story Collections.
