Event Stages & Clear Guides

This event can be easily completed by all Commanders within its duration. The stages start off very easy, scaling up to eventually offer a decent challenge by the final map. A new Commander who takes advantage of the New Player Career Quest Rewards will have no trouble clearing the entire event before it ends.

The map clear guides can be seen below! 

Note: Stage 1 is story only and omitted.

Farming Guides

As usual, an All-In-One Farming Guide is available for EN commanders, courtesy of Ceia!

All farming routes will be viable without the use of fairies, though fairy usage may lower the requirements for some maps significantly, so feel free to experiment and see what works for you.

Daily Tangerine Coin Farm

For those looking to farm their daily 60 Tangerine Coins, simply follow the below clear guide for Stage 2: The Empty House. This map can be cleared via planning mode, making farming a breeze.
