Update improvements include the addition of a Story Exploration Dungeon, which opens with two episodes, including Ellinel Fairy Academy and Riena Strait. Additional improvements include a new refining system, which allows players to grow gears from Sharenian’s Culvert and the introduction of Star Force Liberation, which is a new Zodiac-themed growth system that unlocks the dormant strength in the equipment’s Star Force enhancement levels.
