Version 1.3.1

  • Issues Fixed
    • Fixed an issue where common blades resonated to drivers other than Rex were being deleted if the player started a New Game Plus with them assigned to Rex.
      • We apologize, but even if you update your data, you will be unable to restore your common blades.
    • Fixed an issue during New Game Plus where the player was unable to acquire a common blade’s affinity gift even after fulfilling the conditions.
    • Fixed an issue where rare blades that were released were unable to rise above trust level S if they resonated with a character again.
      • Downloading the update data will set the trust level at S.
      • In the case that the actual trust level is higher than S, then upon doing something to raise the trust level, it will quickly increase to its actual level.
    • We have addressed the following problems where effects intended to be applied to blades on standby were only effective when they were deployed in battle.
      • Core Chips: Some status up types such as “HP MAX Boost”, “Increases the enemy gold drop rate”,”Increases the enemy item drop rate”
      • Aux Cores:”Hunter’s’ Chemistry”, and “Shoulder to Shoulder”
      • Poppy’s Skill RAM: Some status up types such as “HP MAX Boost”, “Gold Rush”, “Treasure Sensor”, “Hunter’s Chemistry”, and “Shoulder to Shoulder”.
      • Common Blade Skills: “Accelerated Growth”, ”Weaponsmaster”, ”Gold Rush”, and “Treasure Sensor”.

    • Fixed an issue where the player couldn’t advance in the Uraya quest “Marvelous Mercenaries”.
    • Fixed an issue where the player couldn’t advance in the Mor Ardain quest “We Meet Again”.
    • Fixed an issue where the minimap and compass wouldn’t display, and fast travel with the X-button would become unavailable.
    • Fixed an issue where Mythra’s 10% Ether modifier wasn’t being reflected in Rex’s Ether attribute display.
      • This problem concerned the display of the modifier; it was being applied.
    • Addressed a problem with crafting field skills such as “Pyra’s Cooking” where you couldn’t continually make things.
    • Fixed an issue where titles of locations were not displaying when discovering landmarks, locations, and secret areas/viewpoints.
    • Fixed an issue where blades would cycle backwards for Rex when using blade change if Mythra was engaged.
  • Changes and New Features
    • An NPC, “Momoni,” has been added to chapter one of New Game Plus, to restore your money one time.
    • He will help you when you are unable to buy an Abyss Vest or unable to send funds due to lack of money on-hand.
    • Adjusted the difficulty of some of the boss battles in Chapter Ten of New Game Plus (so that they reflect Rex’s level).
