1. Update - [Brinhild Nest]






◆ Scenario








Story of a Witch with a Frozen Heart



A secret letter has arrived from Cynthia of "Mana Ridge."  It says that there is a problem on Snow Mountain near Mana Ridge.

Mana Ridge's sorceresses tried to solve the problem on their own at first, but things didn't go their way.

For Mana Ridge's safety, they swallowed their pride and requested help from the clerics, but even the majority of them were injured and forced to turn back.

The letter also contained the shocking news that the most faithful of all the clerics betrayed them.


You visited Cynthia to ask about the origin of the incident, but she was reluctant to talk about it and avoided discussing any details.

All she would tell you is that there's a lonely witch in the mountain who is growing her strength day by day. She then asked you to put an end to that witch's reign over the mountain.








◆ Entry Information


•The Brinhild Nest can be entered and played based on the same conditions as the existing Division Nests.

◆ [Entry Ticket]


Purchase Requirement: High-Grade Essence of Life x100

Usage duration: 1 day after purchase

•[Stage 1 (Witch's Snow Mountain Entrance)]: Snow Mountain Recon Dog Pride




The clues you discovered so far as to the whereabouts of the missing Hilde and Aldrick led you to a remote snowy mountain.

While exploring the area for any potential leads, your spine tingled momentarily as if something was watching you.

Soon, a huge beast appeared from the snowy mountain, its long shadow looming as it approached.

"Grrrrr.... Karrrrgggh!!!"











•[Stage 2 (Cliffs of Snow Mountain)]: Iron Wall Watcher Momog




Upon passing through the entrance of Snow Mountain and climbing the winding mountain path, the mountainside suddenly reverberated, culminating in a landslide.

You hid behind a rising boulder to avoid falling stones,

only to discover that the entrance you came through had become blocked off and a witch's golem who guarded the cliffs was barring the way head.

"Momog? Momooooog!!!"











•[Stage 3 (Before the Cliff Wall Guarding the Sanctuary)]: Faithful Heretic Ludwig



After what seemed like an endless climb up the snowy mountain, you reached a sanctuary that had disappeared from the pages of Mana Ridge's history.

You sensed someone's presence and a suspicious energy in this lonely sanctuary void of human contact.

There, you encountered a corrupted cleric who was guarding the only path leading to the truth of this snowy mountain.


"You have not learned the truth due to your misguided worship of a false goddess.

I saw the truth and discovered the true goddess who I came to serve.

It is my mission to prevent unholy ones like you from entering the sanctuary."











•[Stage 4 (Frozen Sanctuary)]: Corrupt Sorceress Brinhild




After defeating all the frozen trials and offering up the Ice Crystals, the center of the sanctuary finally opened.

The frozen loneliness of the witch flowing through the snowy mountain tightened around your heart.

Finally, you came face-to-face with the witch's inundating loneliness.


"I shall take your hearts and make them Ice Crystals that shine forevermore."










◆ Brinhild Adaptability Mission






The witch Brinhild has placed her minions at each stage to keep the adventurers from accessing her sanctuary,
and has made a strong frozen barrier to prevent anyone from reaching her.

Even if you handle all of her minions, it is impossible to reach her unless you can pass through the frozen barrier,
and this can only be accomplished if you can withstand the intense cold energy emitted by it.





•About the Brinhild Adaptability Mission




The Adaptability mission is one that requires strategy, cooperation and satisfying special conditions to be completed.

Each stage has unique characteristics and will not be cleared with ease.



-The Adaptability missions are limited to stages 1 - 3.

-Each stage has 2 potential Adaptability missions.

-These Adaptability missions are selected at random.



You will receive an item called "Brinhild's Ice Crystal" upon clearing each stage's Adaptability mission.

-A "Brinhild's Ice Crystal" will be dropped after each successful stage mission.

-Each "Brinhild's Ice Crystal" acquired will increase your Adaptability points, which are required to break through Brinhild's frozen barrier.



※Having Ice Crystals does not increase your actual Adaptability stat or change its special effect buff.





To enter Brinhild's final stage, you have to break through the frozen barrier.

Breaking through the frozen barrier requires a certain amount of Adaptability (Frozen World) points.


-The calculation method for determining Adaptability is as follows:
-The sum total of the combined Adaptability of all ‘Brinhild's Ice Crystals’ possessed among party members and the Adaptability (Frozen World) stat of each hero in the party


-If you cannot break through the frozen barrier, you will proceed to the dungeon clear screen and exit the dungeon.

-The required Adaptability varies depending on the number of people entering.










■Brinhild Nest-exclusive Items



•New items [Frozen Heart (Freeze and Burst)] and [Frozen Heart (Deep Chill)] added.


•Frozen Heart is an item that can be inserted into equipment (Shoes) slots.


•Use the special item [Brinhild's Crystal] to add a slot to the shoes version of [Minos Armor], [Minos Armor (Duplicate)], [Insight, Devotion Minos Armor], [Heavenly Minos Armor], and [Amplified Heavenly Minos Armor].

•When a slot is added, all enhancements, stats, and additional stats are retained.


•2-slot [Minos Armor] enhancement, disassembly, and evolution works the same as for the current 1-slot version.

•Example: +10 Insight Shoes (2-slot) disassembly yields a +10 Minos Shoes (Duplicate, 1-slot) and High Grade Celestone.
