Epic Seven, a turn-based mobile RPG developed by Super Creative and published by Smilegate Megaport, released the first update from its “Roadmap for Change” on September 5th, which is a plan for a series of upcoming changes first revealed during the Epic Birthday Conference.
The September 5th update can be summed up in three categories: Hero balancing changes, which were announced prior to the update, the well-received adjustments to Check-In Rewards, and changes to Equipment with flat statistics.
First, the Hero balancing changes targeted Heroes who were difficult to utilize in PvP. Following these changes, there will be many more potential team compositions in PvP modes, such as Arena and Guild War. Additionally, the 3★ Moonlight Heroes Gunther and Otillie received respective adjustments to their survivability and ability to contain enemies, greatly improving their previously lacking performances.
Changes to Check-In Rewards were some of the most popular changes announced during the Epic Birthday Conference. Players are now able to receive high-value rewards just by logging into the game every day, including a 4-5★ Hero Summon Ticket, Artifact Summon Ticket, Galaxy Bookmarks, and Mystic Medals.
Lastly, flat Attack, Defense, and Health statistics on Equipment received major boosts, bringing them up to between 150-250% of their previous values. This was a change that was suggested during the Player Conference held on July 31st. Smilegate plans to bring gradual changes to Epic Seven through constant communication with players.
Meanwhile, the special Side Story “Reingar’s Chaotic Full Moon Festival” is taking place from September 5th to 26th. In this Side Story, players will not only be able to enjoy the story that unfolds around Yuna and the Academy City Reingar but will also be able to acquire a variety of in-game items, such as Catalysts, Skystone, a new 4★ Artifact, and Yuna’s Exclusive Equipment. On top of that, an increased drop rate event for Yufine, a Dragon Warrior from Wintenberg, is being held from September 5th to 11th.
