Item level cap is extended from 10 to 15. Level up your favorite item and create the ultimate item! And you can check all items - even items you've never gotten in Item Encyclopedia now. Find the best item for your tactic and get it from multiplayer games, Happy Cards, Special Match and more!

Additional Customization Slots
Now there are not 1 but 3 customization slots for the classes. The player can customize each slot with character parts and items and select the slot to use when going into battle during the game. Make customization slots to manage various war situations strategically!
