New Heroes Rimuru, Milim, Shion, and Spirit Eye Celine
The new collaboration with Tensura stars the featured starred main characters from the anime/IP – Rimuru Tempest, Milim Nava, and Shion. Rimuru and Milim will be available to summon along with their 5-Star artifacts Anti-Magic Mask and Upgraded Dragon Knuckles on their own limited-time collaboration banners. Rimuru’s banner starts on 28th October 2021 and ends on 11th November 2021 after server maintenance while Milim’s banner starts on 4th November 2021 and ends on 18th November 2021. Players can guarantee to summon them on their 120th summon on each banner as pity in Epic Seven stands at 120 summons. Shion and her 5-Star artifact Flawless Garments will be available to all players in the special check-in event as well as by completing different stages in the side story and exchanging event currency for multiple copies of them.
Rimuru is a 5-Star Earth elemental hero from the Warriors class who excels at copying buffs and replicating them for all allies. He also introduces this copy mechanic and makes the game more complex and strategic with different team formations that can be formed with him. He does this copying of enemy buffs with his 2nd skill Analyze and Assess that states Rimuru copies any of the 2 buffs from the enemy if they are buffed after using a non-basic skill and grants those buffs to all allies. He also uses Be Ready whenever a buffed enemy attacks any ally. Be Ready is a single target damaging attack that increases Rimuru’s combat readiness by 30%. This skill is on a 3-turn cooldown. His 1st skill Okay, Shall I Get Started? Is a single targeted damaging skill that attacks the target enemy and grants himself a random buff out of Immunity, Increased Attack, Critical Hit Resistance, Effect resistance for 1 turn. His 3rd skill Devour It, Black Flame! is also a single targeted damaging ability that deals fixed damage plus additional 5000 fixed damage if the attack hits.
This damage can increase depending on the number of buffs on the targeted enemy up to a maximum of 10,000. This skill also reduces the defense of all enemies if the targeted hit is buffed. This skill is also unaffected by elemental advantage/disadvantage. Rimuru is looking to be a great counter to buff heavy teams while being susceptible to cleaves. He can be built slow and fast both ways as he can copy buffs whenever the opponents use their skills to buff themselves. We recommend building him mainly for PvP aspects but he can be helpful in hunts as well with his fixed damage on his 3rd skill. We recommend building him on Speed/Counter + Immunity set with a focus on Attack%, Critical Hit Rate%, and Critical Hit Damage%. Focus on speed more if you decide to go with Speed + Immunity build.
Rimuru’s skills are as follows: –
Okay, Shall I Get Started? – Cuts the enemy to attack, granting a random buff to the caster for 1 turn. (Immunity, Increase Attack, Increase Critical Hit Resistance, Increase Effect Resistance)
Analyze and Assess – After attacking with a non-basic skill, copies two buffs when the target is buffed, regardless of whether or not the attack hits and grants their effects to all allies. This effect is not applied to undispellable buffs. When an ally is attacked by a buffed enemy, activates Be Ready! against the attacker. Can only be activated once every 3 turns.
Be Ready!: Quickly approaches the enemy and attacks, increasing the Combat Readiness of the caster by 30%.
Devour It, Black Flame! – Attacks the enemy with black flame, and a successful attack will inflict 5,000 additional fixed damage to the target. Fixed damage increases proportionally to the number of buffs granted to all allies, up to a maximum of 10,000 fixed damage. When the target is buffed, decreases the Defense of all enemies for 2 turns. Unaffected by elemental disadvantage.
Milim is a 5-Star Fire elemental hero from the Mage class that excels at dealing damage to all enemies, even those in stealth as well as dealing with characters with revives with her Extinction on her 3rd skill Dragon Fear that also ignores damage sharing effects. Her first skill Dragon Dive is a single targeted damaging ability that deals damage equal to her attack as well as heals proportionally to the damage dealt. She also gains an Attack buff for 1 turn before the attack. Her 2nd skill Demon Eye (Milim Eye) is her passive ability that states Milim can get Dragon Eye (Milim Eye) buff when the battle starts or after her turn ends. This buff dispels all Stealth buffs from enemy heroes and this dispels ignores resistance. This skill, however, cannot permanently undispellable the stealth of characters like Specter Tenebria. This skill also stacks Focus and when this Focus bar is full, Milim will activate Dragon Buster which is an AOE damaging skill that targets all enemies while also removing 10 souls. Her 3rd skill Dragon Fear is a single targeted damaging ability that deals damage to the targeted enemy and Extinct the target if defeated. This skill also ignored all damage sharing effects if the targeted enemy is not an Elite/Boss monster. Players can soul burn her 1st skill to get an extra turn. Her kit seems very strong and another counter to heroes that can revive or provide revive buffs. She ignores damage-sharing effects; hence, she can be a great unit that counters heroes like Fallen Cecilia and Crimson Armin.
Milim’s skills are as follows: –
Dragon Dive – Attacks the enemy, recovering Health proportional to the damage dealt before increasing Attack of the caster for 1 turn.
Demon Eye (Milim Eye) – At the start of the battle and at the end of the turn, has a 70% chance to grant Dragon Eye (Milim Eye) to the caster for 1 turn. When the caster is granted Dragon Eye (Milim Eye) at the start of the turn, dispels stealth from all enemies. Ignores Effect Resistance. When Focus is full after attacking, consume all Focus to activate Dragon Buster[white]. Dragon Buster[/white]: Attacks all enemies with overwhelming mana, removing 10 Souls.
Dragon Fear – Releases mana to attack the enemy, inflicting extinction when the enemy is defeated. Increases Evasion of the caster for 3 turns. When the enemy is not an Elite or Boss monster, damage-sharing effects are ignored.
Shuna is a 5-Star Fire elemental character from the Soul Weaver class that excels at balancing out HP and bringing some crowd control effects with her skill set. Shuna is the first hero to bring out a skill that can balance out HP. This skill might be really good for PvE and PvP with bruiser/tank teams. Her 1st skill Magicule Explosion is a single targeted damaging ability that deals damage and heals her according to her MAX HP. This skill does more damage according to her maximum HP. Her 2nd skill Blooming Lotus is a great supporting and healing ability that states it dispels 2 debuffs from all allies, rebalances the HP among allies, and grants a barrier buff for 2 turns. This barrier’s strength depends on the maximum HP of Shuna. This skill is on a 4-turn cooldown after using MolaGora’s. Her 3rd skill Sleeping Spell is an AOE damaging skill that targets all enemies and dispels 2 of their buffs while also inflicting Sleep debuff for 2 turns with a 50% chance. Shuna is a free to play and obtain character that can be obtained through the 7 Day Check-In Event, as well as more copies of her, can be obtained by playing the special side story of collaboration titled “Solayu Cook-Off”.

She combines maid chloe and tempest surin’s abilities. Her 1st skill Mighty Strike is a single targeted damaging ability that has 2 modes – Mighty Strike or Nimble Sword. When this skill is used, has a 35% chance to use Nimble Sword instead-but the effect chance is doubled when Spirit Eye Celine is in the Possessed state. Nimble Sword can’t be used when Spirit Eye Celine counterattacks. Nimble Sword is also a single targeted damaging skill that removes 1 debuff from Spirit Eye Celine then damages the enemy while penetrating 35% of the target’s defense. Her 2nd skill Sixth Sense states that she cannot take damage more than 70% of her MAX HP in a single hit and that all her skill cooldown get decreased by 1 turn while also gaining 5 souls whenever somebody dies. This effect takes place per turn once when a hero dies.
