Purify "Cuckoo" 3 Event Banner

Introduction

June 26 2020 13:59 +0900 until the event is over!


Sudden and urgent corrosion phenomena have been discovered in a certain rare writing.
That writing is the magazine called "Cuckoo" created by Masaoka Shiki.
Within, a world unfolds before you which is different from usual - words whirl and eddy all throughout.
This story begins with the awakening of two boys......

This is a rerun of the fifth Coup de Main (lit. "surprise attack tactics") event, and it will run from 2020/06/14 to 2020/06/26 13:59 JST. You are required to purify six chapters (each represented by a tainted book) from "Cuckoo", a magazine of haiku that was started by Masaoka Shiki. Collect Distorted Gears to transmigrate Natsume Souseki, Masaoka Shiki, Takahama Kyoshi and Kawahigashi Hekigotou, unlock decor, and gain special outfits for the latter two.

Rewards may only be claimed until the end of the event.

Gameplay

Access this event by clicking on the event banner on the Main Library screen or in the Book Delve menu.

The event gameplay is similar to tainted book delving. Simply click on the large yellow button to enter the event bookshelf and begin the event.

There are four unique tabs on the event panel.

The first, Rewards Report will show how many gears the player has accumulated so far, plus the next unclaimed reward and recollection .

The next, Exchange will show the total number and types of rewards exchangeable for distorted gears. The player may choose which rewards to exchange for with their gears, and the number above shows how many times each reward may be exchanged for.

The third, Recollections shows the event recollections and the requirements to unlock them. The golden button on this tab takes the player back to the second tab.

The bottom one, Mission Requirements summarizes the objective of the event.

The bottom left area of the event main menu is where the player may use the scrolls dropped randomly from the event tainted books to access a special map "Cuckoo". The boss of this map will not have a corrosion bar, but the gears gained will be determined by the total damage dealt. It is recommended to bring the strongest team possible to this special map.

Also, the event this time will have the Taints’ strength change according to the player’s writers’ levels, and according to the strength of the Taints the player can receive a “Sneak Attack Bonus”. The Sneak Attack Bonus is a set amount of gears the player can get that is not related to the amount of damage dealt. Prepare writers for battle as much as possible by blossoming, checking stamina and corrosion amount, equipping memoria cards, and leveling them up.

  • The bonus memoria cards will still have their special effect in this stage.
  • The sneak attack bonus will reflect the bonus memoria card’s effect.
  • Take note that no experience points or blossoming materials will be given.
  • Take note that a dose of the elixir of pursuit will be used up (if selected).

Begin the delve to purify the first book by clicking on the large yellow button.

Upon clearing the first chapter, the second chapter will be released, and so on.

The player must claim the recollection "Gathering" at 19k gears to unlock the second shelf of the event tainted books.

Clearing the chapters will give rewards of small or medium souls and distorted gears.

Tips

  • Having Masaoka Shiki on the team is said to make it easier to route to boss node in Book 1 and 2. A hint box will appear in the event of a dead end.
  • Having Natsume Souseki and Masaoka Shiki on the team is said to make it easier to route to boss node in Book 3, 4, 5 and 6. A hint box will appear in the event of a dead end.
  • Completing the limited Daily mission of defeating an event map (including dead ends) will grant 500 gears.
  • Cat Paws and Golden Cat Paws cannot be used in this event. Instead, equipping either Scarlet Gem of the Peerless Pair - Takahama Kyoshi or Azure Gem of the Peerless Pair - Kawahigashi Hekigotou memorias on your team will increase the gears you can obtain.
    • Equipping one memoria to the team will increase the number of Words obtained by 2.5x. The max multiplier is 4 memorias for 7x Words.
    • Fusing the memoria to max level will increase the number of Words obtained by 4x. The max multiplier is 4 max level memorias for 13x Words.

Exchange

  • Alternative outfits can be obtained even if the writer in question has not been transmigrated. They would be stored for future use in the Outfit Storage, which can be accessed from the Office.
