1. Requirement to use Summon
- Players must clear [Normal] stage 1-3 of the Nibelon Woodlands to enter the Summon system.
- When the entry requirement is fulfilled, the entrance of the Summon located on the bottom of the citadel will be unlocked.

2. How to Summon
1) Through the tabs located on the left side of the screen, the players can find the tabs of summoning that are currently available to proceed, and a tab to enter the mileage shop called ‘Linkshop’.

2) After selecting the summoning tab wished to proceed, the players can use  ‘Linkstone’ to summon Heroes & Relics within the designated summoning rate.

◈ What is ‘Linkstone’?
- An exclusive item used in the ‘Summon’ to summon Heroes and the Relics.

※ The summoning rate of each summons can be found by pressing the ‘Rate’ button.

3) The result of the summon will appear after the summoning effect. Also, through the ‘Summon History’ button, players can inquire summoning history of the last six months for a maximum of 200.

3. Summon Tutorial

- As a result of the free summon during the tutorial, players will definitely recruit a ★5 Hero.

※ ★5 Hero that can be recruited through the tutorial cannot be selected by the players, one out of the designated summon list of the Heroes will be recruited, depending on the summoning rate.
※ Please note that at the beginning of the tutorial, free 500 linkstones will be automatically added to the player's linkstone stack. These free linkstone will be used during the tutorial summon at the end. (added on Mar 3, 11:28 UTC+0)

- Players will instead receive 'Exp' of the summoned Relic, and 'Linktraces' when they summon the same Relics they already possess.

※ This only applies to [Earth] Mikhail, the hero that has been returned with 14-day Login Event after the maintenance on February 22nd: Players will not be able to get ‘Spiritus Gem’ from recruiting [Earth] Mikhail, even if players already recruited him, and as we noticed, 1K Crystal will be awarded for the 14-day Login event on the 14th date.
