Trial Hour

  • This is more of a transition to Warding Battle.

Sunfall Hour

  • This is the conclusion to the battle.

Purging Evils. Click Go to commence the battle. There's three difficulties and each battle costs 30 Sushi. As you proceed, you will acquire Heart's Glow which will allow you to acquire Shikigami, evolve or even purchase from the Soul shop. All the battles are automatic. There's no time limit. You will receive 100 Heart's Glow for the first common battle and you can choose a Shikigami after the battle (purification) or leave. It is not exactly passive. It requires some babysitting. You will get at times get the chance for a Relic Chest, Random or an Encounter and this can range from evolving a Shikigami to cancelling and getting currency. At the end of each common battle, you will face off against a Six Realms Evil God. You will face approximately 6 at each stage. You will receive 3 Radiance Keys as well as a high grade Shikigami. As you advance in difficulty, you will receive more and more Radiance Keys. I farmed the hardest difficulty once I got the hang of it and was able to max out the loot box I wanted. Radiance Chest allows you to exchange rewards. You need Radiance Keys.

Tiny Adventure

Tiny Adventure is a little different and shorter. Warding Glimmers is the farming. 50 Firefly Charms are issued daily. Select souls before starting the battle but too can switch out as needed. While you can use Sushi to continue, you won't receive any Blessed Gohei. There are 10 levels of difficulty. I allowed the Firefly Charms to stack to 200 and was easily able to unlock the rest of the shop levels. I don't recommend you wait for too long if you have grabbed the event at a much later date.

Warding Battle

The final battle. Each attempt costs 12 Sushi and you get 3 minutes off Battle. You can switch between defensive or offensive mode. Choose your Sentry before engaging in battle. I found defense a lot easier than attacking Izanami: 19 mil vs 9 mil is a huge difference. Your rewards are based on Total Damage. You can borrow Shikigami or lent out Shikigami. First 20 challenges will grant you daily rewards.

Light Depot

Light Depot is this event's shop. The shop has 3 levels: Dim, Dawn (1000K), Sunrise (2000K). Amanozako special skin - Astral Wings. Notable purchases are up to the player's needs and level but some recommendations:

  • Grade Daruma
  • Skill Daruma and shards
  • EXP Daruma
  • Mystery ¬†Amulets
  • SSR/SP Summon Scroll
  • Jade
  • Realm Cards
  • Cyan Imps and Evo mats.

Final Thoughts

Happy that the new interactive animations have voiceovers as it really adds to the experience. With these final updates, getting newer generation Shikigami has been much easier than when I first started playing.

I wish they had kept Izanami's dark form throughout the battle and the final battle was too short and I couldn't participate. However, I have nothing but good memories from the event since I got blessed by the summoning Gods. I received SSR Asura, SP Fallen God Orochi (SSR Scroll) and SP Heartseeker Momiji from regular summon before reaching my 40th one.
