Gameplay and Gacha
Can I get new characters from the gacha?
What weapon ranks can I pull from the gacha? What are the rates?
Gacha pulls are ranked A through SS with the following base rates: SS (3%), S (20%) and A (77%).
How do I reroll?
Rooted Android devices can delete the `shared_pref` folder inside of data/data/jp.co.pokelabo.sinoalice to prevent having to redownload the game assets. Non-rooted Android devices can wipe the application data via settings. iOS users must delete the app and reinstall. More info: How to Reroll
How do I back up my account?
See Translations; click on the Menu button, then Data Transfer. Copy the ID, set a password, then store both in a secure location to restore your data at a later date. The transfer ID does not change and the password can be use indefinitely until you set a new password.
How do I restore my account after I have backed it up?
See Account Recovery.
What is this "sparking" thing I've heard about?
There is a system where you earn Desire Medals for pulling the gacha (one pull gives you 10 medals). You can exchange 750 medals for a gacha weapon of your choice. This is similar to the "cerulean spark" system from the mobile game Granblue Fantasy.
How do I join a guild?
You must clear through chapter 2-10 of the story before you can join a guild.
Can I change my player name?
You can change your player name from the profile page. It will cost you 10 Magic Stones to do so, and there will be a prompt to ensure your choice before spending.
What characters are currently in the game?
How do I unlock new characters?
Characters can be unlocked in their default classes by completing the first chapter of their story routes. Characters can also be awarded through community promotions or obtained during limited-time events.
