The Three Little Pigs Arrive in SINoALICE With the Act of Hatred Update
The latest SINoALICE update brought a new chapter in the ever-expanding repertoire of fairy tales in the game, and even added a brand new Breaker character, the Three Little Pigs. These additions come in the new Act of Hatred chapter, allowing players to witness yet another engaging story based on these peculiar characters. Only, instead of being 3 literal pigs, they’re cute waifus, because why not.
However, unlike other new characters in the game, which are unlockable for free or by following certain story events, the Three Little Pigs must be unlocked the traditional way; by pulling their unique Breaker weapon from the corresponding 5-Step event banner. Moreover, there’s only a limited time to unlock this new character as the banner will only be available until September 9.
How to Access the Special 5-Step Event Banner
Unlocking the Three Little Pigs in SINoALICE is quite simple, but it requires luck since you’re relying solely on the summoning RNG. Luckily, the 5-Step Banner can help with this since, at the very least, you’ll get an SR weapon at the end of the line, which could be the one corresponding to the special characters.
You can find the special banner simply in the Grimoire menu. The way it works is that, every time you pay Twilight Crystals to perform a summoning, your banner advances by one step. The first two steps cost 150 crystals for 5 summonings, while the other three cost 300 crystals for 11 summonings each. The fifth and final step also has a guaranteed SR weapon drop, which means that it’s the one where you’re most likely to unlock the Three Little Pigs. Once you complete step 5, you’ll be reverted back to step 1, and the cycle repeats for as long as you continue summoning in the banner.
The 5-Step Banner is a good way to score some extra loot, rare character or not. If you’re going to sink some Crystals into summoning, you might as well do it there while the event is ongoing. At best, you unlock an awesome new Breaker character; and at worst, you get a guaranteed SR weapon at step 5, which is also great.
Regardless, if you’re serious about summoning the Three Little Pigs, you have until September 9 before the banner expires. We can’t say for sure if the character will be made available elsewhere afterward, but it’s best not to take any chances. Luckily, you’ll get 300 Twilight Crystals when first logging in during the event, which will, at the very least, get you to step 3.
Event Medal Exchange
Every time you perform summonings in the 5-Step Banner, you’ll receive Medals of Desire (IX). The first two steps give 50, while the other three give 100 each, for a total of 400 medals every cycle. You can trade them in the Medal Exchange for special items related to the event, including Arcana for the Three Little Pigs, as well as other useful items.
If you’re having bad luck unlocking the new character, you can also pay 1,500 medals to purchase their weapon, the Crusher of Gluttony, from the Medal Exchange, which will also unlock the Three Little Pigs.
