5 4 new character stories (http://www.himeuta.net/showthread.php?t=5579).
Maybe finally a Soldier with a skill. Could be Aderina's turn at last. Eunice and Lilija have been waiting quite a while too.

As a reminder, the update notes will have to wait until I wake up, which is about four hours after the patch finishes.

Sara Bruzek

From the game guide:
[Career Up] requires purchasing a [Career Up Badge] from the [Shop].
After [Career Up], an employee inherits about half of their max level stats, and by level 30 (current max level) should have more stats compared to before the promotion.
Judging by this screen shot, it looks like Monique requires about 5 000 000 Gold to Career Up along with the Badge which presumably costs Shine Stones.

09-18-2015, 06:00 AM
So uh, is Promotion basically the marriage system?

09-18-2015, 06:52 AM
Only four new character stories this week. I've added the skill previews to the OP. Lilija's skill only shows her daggers being thrown, but there's a lot of slashes involved too that I didn't bother uploading because they always look really weird out of context. If you count each slash, I think it makes it look like a 10-hit skill. Stela's skill looks like a horizontal attack.

Surprising sudden system update. It's officially called [Career Up] with the kanji literally meaning Promotion. Since it's in the shop, it'll likely cost Shine Stones, though if we're lucky, an obscene amount of Gold instead. With a Career Up, I believe employees get a title that says 主任 which means Senior Staff. Everyone who doesn't have a title may have one that says something to the effect of "No Position Title". The system is basically reincarnation, allowing for more stat inflation. Get ready to grind.

Going to bed now. Enjoy.

So 7* remains exclusive to 5*?
Well, time to take everyone out of retirement and finally cap them. I always left them alone once they were about halfway to 90...

Would be nice if everyone starts looking like their character art after the promotion, but I won't hope for anything.

09-18-2015, 07:57 AM

Career Up currently has a level cap of 30. Probably going to raise it periodically so people have things to do. Aside from this patch, they apparently started banning people on the 16th for unfair conduct. Probably means botting, but it might also refer to hacking too.

09-18-2015, 08:36 AM
Promotion screen has it's own music.

Protip: Go to the promotion screen before you use your next battlefield envelope.

09-18-2015, 08:41 AM
This is hard. I want to promote couple girls but I need them for battlefield...

Also: leader icon at formation screen is gone. Probably bug.

09-18-2015, 08:47 AM
So it's like doing a New Game+ for the character with buff bonus from reaching max. This might turn ugly, but it'll probably solve problem with the up scaling difficulty of Volume 2 mobs

09-18-2015, 09:30 AM
I like it, but 5 mill gold? looks like gold is finally worth something again lol

checked it ingame

costs actually 2 million gold and the badge costs 5 shine stones, which is rather reasonable

Maybe I'm the only 1 who thinks ragnarok online when I read about rebirth update....

09-18-2015, 09:43 AM
Zeenoa With 5 stones per badge, you won't really be mass promoting employees anyway. Hopefully you have others you can use to fill up any temporary holes.

By default you got 6 crystals every 2 weeks so girls promotion is limited to 1 every 2 weeks.

So to promote 6 girls that will take.....12 weeks....almost 3 months
Still sounds doable~

09-18-2015, 10:04 AM
I did it anyway.


They are glowing now, lol.

09-18-2015, 10:10 AM
Zeenoa They glowing fine?... My Viola glowing're bugged :kongou_dot:

09-18-2015, 10:22 AM

Holy hell.....how many coins did you sell???
Selling all my coins and yet I just got 4M.....

09-18-2015, 10:28 AM
What sort of bug?
D Des
I had 35 mil gold earlier. Not a big deal.

09-18-2015, 11:19 AM
Can anyone with promoted units check what promotion does to rank? Just something really basic, like whether promotion is higher or lower than 6*, 7*, and whether a promoted 5* is 'equal' to other promoted characters.

It's going to be a long time before I promote anyone. I might start capping people, but that doesn't mean I'm going to promote them.

09-18-2015, 11:46 AM
So they give Sara a story weapon just after i stop using her....

So max level characters can be leveled even more? nice i guess, really wish some employees i use would get a story though

09-18-2015, 11:50 AM
Zeenoa just graphic bug, and after refreshing the game, they do fine, i guess earlier my pc didn't downloading the patch completely

09-18-2015, 12:03 PM
KitsuneSama Everyone will get theirs eventually. Even if they did give Leona hers (and added the model for Elsa's) before everyone else.

excelence It was a bug. It got fixed quickly just like

Also: leader icon at formation screen is gone. Probably bug.

How long until battlefield is overrun with promoted employees.

@illogic (http://www.himeuta.net/member.php?u=3796)
Here you go. Annalina is the leader. All of them using +2 equipment.



7* is still vastly superior. :kongou_grin:

09-18-2015, 01:37 PM
Zeenoa Still a sliiiight possibility that promoted is equal to 7*. Or that it's equal to 6*. If 6* is leader, and that leader still gets hit before a promoted, then 6* is lower. Likewise for 7* and promoted.

Actually, I did ask for something basic and that was a basic test. There's a whole bunch of other stuff that could put a promoted character at the same rank as 6* and 7* instead of somewhere in between, but that's more than just a basic test.

09-18-2015, 02:02 PM
@illogic (http://www.himeuta.net/member.php?u=3796)
Oh yeah, forgot about 6* as leader.
Here it is.

And promoted 6* as leader.
7* is way too superior. :kongou_grin:

09-18-2015, 02:31 PM
I'm curious what bug they fixed with the Memories Hammers.

09-18-2015, 02:38 PM
Zeenoa So promotions don't really do anything in terms of rank. It might shift the priorities a bit for situations like two of the same class using the same weapon, but that's a minor thing.

illyrin Certain weapons were unaffected by the [Limited] (not Memories) hammer and coming out as +0. There was a tweet/information post listing the affected weapons, which was the character story weapons added a month? ago. The ones with Liliana and Saimi.
At least, those were the affected weapons if I was reading it correctly.

09-18-2015, 05:19 PM
illogic is correct and the bug was the [Limited] Weapon Hammer not affecting the character story weapons from the update two weeks ago. This was fixed. The different bugs that came up this patch regarding the glow effect disappearing, the Career Up page leading to the Shine Stone page, leader icon missing in party formation, and battlefield fastforward button not showing up, have also been fixed since.

I currently have 41 characters at their level cap, with two at 89, two at 88, and several more in their 80s. This will be a long journey.

09-19-2015, 07:40 AM
Dunno where to post, but i think related to update

From FB group for KG, someone able to snatch codes for Normal Silver post box at TGS :kongou_grin:

09-19-2015, 07:57 AM
Nona Ainsworth. Shiny new cleric, since we've already have Charis as a 4*, she's the next 5*? Or is this going to be Lottie all over again.

09-19-2015, 01:29 PM
Hanazawa Kana.

I want to believe.

Oh, here's Lilija's exclusive skill. Super underwhelming single hit after that animation...
