In this guide, we will go over what the Inscription of Labyrinth Update has in store for Punishing Gray Raven players, how players can gain the most amount of benefits from this update, and whether or not players should roll for the brand new character and the S Rank CUB - No.21: XXI and Frost Oath.
Let’s play Punishing Gray Raven on PC and find out together!
Punishing Gray Raven’s brand new Inscription of Labyrinth update can be divided into 3 different sections - the Extra Story Chapter, the New Character Interlude, and Special Challenges and farming stages in addition to an event shop.
Available from this update onwards, the newly introduced Extra Story Chapter - Inscription of Labyrinth allows players to go through the events leading up to the introduction and subsequent joining of No.21:XXI into the Gray Raven squad. Go through the extra story chapter and obtain many valuable materials for character upgrading and special currencies for gacha in the game.
There are 2 difficulties for the Extra story chapter - Normal and Hidden with the Hidden difficulty requiring players to invest heavily into their characters so be sure to be prepared for this challenge.
During the Update duration, a brand new characters interlude chapter is available for all players that are lv 40 and above and have access to character interludes.
Clearing these character interludes provides players with extra background information for the new character introduced during this Update - No.21: XXI. In addition, playing the interlude chapters allow players to playtest the new character of this Update, allowing them to have a better understanding of their playstyles and help decide if you should roll for the new characters.
Clearing these Character Interlude Chapters also reward players with a lot of gacha currencies, so make sure to clear them while they are available during this Update since once this Update has passed, you will need to own the characters to access these Interlude Chapters again.
In addition to brand new permanent contents added into the game like the story chapter and the character interludes, we also receive Event Specific Farming Stages that only last during the Update period will be gone forever.
In addition, while clearing the event stages, players will be rewarded with special Event-exclusive EXP that increases the familiarity of the level of the stage. The higher this level is, the more buffs players will gain from the event stages and will aid in helping the players clear the event stages much faster. At lv 30, players can completely ignore clearing the event stage altogether and skip the event stages by triggering a special event, gaining the event’s special currencies in the process. Players will also be rewarded with a total of 250 Balck Cards by reaching certain levels during the event period.
Farming the Special Event stages will reward players with special currencies that they can then use to exchange for various rewards from the Event Shop such as EXP pods, Cogs, Memories and even 30 Character Shards of No.21:XXI, allowing you to recruit her without having to roll for her from the gacha.
Players should prioritize getting No.21:XXI Shards from the event shop first and foremost as they cost a large amount of event currencies. Once players have exchanged for all of the shards, players then can priorities other upgrading materials such as EXP, Cogs Boxes, 6* Memories, etc.
It is also important to note that special Memories that suit No.21:XXI’s combat prowess will be discounted during the event’s period as well, so players should exchange 1 set of that special memories set in order to boost her combat capabilities.
For a special limited time only, special banners will be available for players to have a chance to obtain the new A Rank construct - No.21:XXI and a brand new S Rank CUB - Frost Oath that can help boost Rosetta: Vigor’s combat capabilities and enhance her damage output.
No.21: XXI is a Tank-type Dark Elemental Construct that specializes in supporting the entire team with breaking the enemy’s special Heavy Armor in addition to applying buffs to allies when her QTE is activated.
No.21: XXI’s Red orbs will initiate a special dark field on the battlefield, dealing Dark Elemental Damage to all enemies within the zone and pulling enemies towards the zone constantly.
Her Yellow Orbs will deal big Area of Effect and deal Physical damage to all enemies ( Dark Elemental Damage on 3-ping orbs)
No.21: XXI’s Blue Orbs will help her enter a special state, enhancing her normal attacks, making them changed into Dark Elemental Damage and speed the attack speed up.
No.21: XXI’s Ultimate Skill allows her to turn the field into a special field that grants her unlimited signal orbs during the duration, enhances her skill and normal attack’s Dark Elemental Damage. Once the Skill Duration ends, The field will explode and deal massive amounts of Dark Elemental damage to all enemies within the field.
Frost Oath is the physical mechanical CUB that specializes in supporting the S Rank Construct Rosetta:Vigor. This CUB helps Rosetta improve her shields shred in addition to granting her special physical damage buffs. If players mains Physical Oriented teams, having this CUB for Rosetta is absolutely essential to unleash her full potential as a Physical Tank Carrier.
Yes for Frost Oath, No for No.21:XXI. As stated in the Event Shop Section, players will be rewarded with 30 shards in order to recruit No.21:XXI right away, meaning players are guaranteed to get at least 1 copy of the character, therefore players don’t need to roll for her unless they want to upgrade her further. As for Frost Oath, it is one of the best CUB in the game for physical damage teams, so getting it is absolutely essential.
