Welcome to the latest installment of our Princess Connect! Re: Dive story event guides! This event will coincide with the much awaited limited summer character of Karyl (Summer). You will also be able to obtain a free copy of Mifuyu (Summer) from playing the event. In addition, you can also obtain memory shards for both Mifuyu (Summer) and Akino. Today we'll break down the event and other information from the latest update. All the information is from the JP server first ran the event, and if past events are anything to go by, we should be following the same reward chart. So let's dive right into the article!
Level Cap, Rank Cap, and New Missions
Making a splash along with the event will be the level cap increase, new equipment, and new missions. Let's also quickly highlight the release of Area 14 and the increased level cap. Starting on June 9, 2021, the level cap will increase to 105. With Area 14, your characters can also reach rank 10-4. Be sure to note which characters you may need to rank up and which ones to leave behind. There are many sources you can easily find this information such as on Reddit and Discord. The hard stages feature memory shards for Kurumi, Shinobu, and Jun.
Karyl (Summer) Banner
This update will also bring along the much anticipated Karyl (Summer). I'm pretty sure I don't need to convince you to roll for her. She's essential for any future magic team composition so I hope you have some jewels saved up for her. She is probably also the only summer character that is truly a must roll. Tamaki (Summer) will be last up in the summer series of limited characters for this year. She has a lot of utility and will see some use in clan battles going forward. In the JP server, free 10-rolls were also given with the Tamaki (Summer) banner during the half anniversary event, we hope it carries over into EN as well.
Karyl (Summer) is only available from July 9, 2021 to August 1, 2021, so make sure to roll her while she's here. Otherwise, you'll need to wait for her re-run a year from now.
Tamaki and Mifuyu’s Desert Island 0-Rupie Life! Story Event
This is the fifth story event in the EN/WW server. Events generally give a generous amount of items, mana, jewels, and character memory shards. The great thing about this event is that it comes with a free 1* character in Mifuyu (Summer). The memory shards featured in this event are Mifuyu (Summer) and Akino. On top of the rewards, it also adds event story chapters which can be viewed as you complete the event stages.
Events are broken down into two phases of stages similar to the main quest. However, you must clear all the normal stages and the normal boss before unlocking the hard stages. Normal stages start at 1-1 and go all the way up to 1-15. Clearing each stage for the first time also provides 30 jewels, an assortment of items, and boss tickets. After the first clear, they will still provide some items and more importantly boss tickets. These boss tickets are used to fight the boss of the event. We'll go over this more in-depth later.
After clearing stages 1-1 through to 1-15 and the boss on normal, you'll unlock the hard missions. These missions are similar to the main quest hard missions and have a chance to drop memory shards. Each first clear will also provide 3 of the memory shards of the character indicated, boss tickets, items, and will also give the 30 jewel bonus. Each subsequent clear will then give a chance of dropping the memory shards. You can only clear each hard stage 3 times a day.
For the most part, you will want to clear each of these hard stages every day of the event to maximize your memory shard gain. This event features memory shards for Mifuyu (Summer) and Akino. Remember, there will be no other way to obtain the memory shards for Mifuyu (Summer) outside of a rerun or the divine amulet store. There is a large amount of luck involved with the hard missions but the memory shards and the boss tickets are generally worth it.
As with the last event, you can see there is also a Very Hard difficulty and is still actually fairly tough. The good thing is that this boss is a little simpler to deal with and can be done in one hit. You get quite a bit more rewards from it and you can only complete it once a day. Worry not, we'll have some more details on how to deal with this boss below.
To fight the boss you'll need to obtain enough boss tickets. Each of the stages you clear from the event will provide boss tickets. The boss will come in normal, hard, and very hard. The normal boss should be easily cleared with any team while hard may pose a bit more of a challenge. Very Hard, as previous stated will be a tough one. Clearing bosses will also provide tokens to be used on the event treasure box. This is the real reason you'll be farming the event. We'll touch on this later on in the article.
The hard and very hard boss will have a larger pool of HP and also additional skills. Of course, with the more difficult boss, the rewards will also be greater. This version of the boss also does more damage and has a more difficult attack pattern once below 40% HP. (Think of it as them hitting their limit break.) We will recommend some potential parties below for those struggling to clear the hard and very hard versions of the boss.
|Difficulty||HP||Union Burst||Skill 1||Skill 2|
|Normal Lvl. 25||35,000||Large physical damage to all enemies based on the character's max HP.||Medium magic damage to all enemies and buffs own physical and magic defense.||N/A|
|Hard Lvl. 50||160,000||Large physical damage to all enemies based on the character's max HP.||Medium magic damage to all enemies and buffs own physical and magic defense.||Large magical danage to enemies in front and knocks units into the air.|
|Very Hard Lvl. 90||775,000||Large physical damage to all enemies based on the character's max HP.||Medium magic damage to all enemies and buffs own physical and magic defense.||Large magical danage to enemies in front and knocks units into the air.|
So as you can see above, Very Hard is still going to pose quite a challenge. With close to 1 million HP, this will be some of the hardest content in the game at the time of release. Just note the boss does a significant amount of AOE damage and has a knock up ability. You also want to make sure you're not using your UB after the boss buffs it's own defense as the shield is quite high. Also don't forget about the 40% enrage mechanic for the Hard and Very Hard boss. Defeating the Very Hard boss will also drop a large amount of rewards and a valued Mifuyu (Summer) memory piece. Remember, you can only defeat the Very Hard boss once daily.
For the hard boss, it should be pretty straightforward as the enemies haven't been upgraded too much compared to our level cap and rank increases. This worked in JP assuming your characters are rank 9 and above and around level 90 or so. You may need to level up your characters or try different combinations to get a decent clear. The boss move set for Hard and Very Hard are the same but the health and damage is much lower. Be aware of all the AOE damage between the the UB that does % damage to all your units and the skill 1 that also does AOE damage. We'll suggest a few parties below: the approaches can vary but all of these should work.
Our first party consists of a tank and Kokkoro up front and then two DPS behind them and finally a healer in Yui. Most of the characters here are interchangeable and your results may vary. This is probably the easiest team to build just because the characters are easily obtainable. You can easily replace Miyako with another tank such as Jun or Nozomi. The DPS slots can also vary between using a different archer such as Arisa or Suzuna. Finally, Karyl can be replaced with another mage such as Kyoka or Karyl (Summer).
This second team is more of a traditional brute force team with one tank and two melee damage dealers. This is supported by Kokkoro (Summer) and Kokkoro. Tank swapping is not necessary as you'll be killing the boss way before Miyako dies. Feel free to swap out Miyako with another tank such as Jun.
Very Hard Boss
Moving on to the Very Hard boss, you'll need to be more wary of your UB activation and the enemies skill activation. The boss doesn't have too much HP compared to the last event but makes up for it with a shield that buffs physical and magical defense on using skill one. It is very obvious when it happens and you want to make sure you're not using your UB when that happens. The key to this boss is survival. Since this boss doesn't have a large single target attack that wipes your units, you just need to do enough damage and survive. This is easier said than done since you have to juggle two AOE attacks and a front knock up attack.
Our party consists of the standard array of units. We want to use Jun as our tank here as her physical defense down is crucial. Kaori and Makoto are our main damage dealers while Kokkoro and Kokkoro (Summer) are our support units. Another option is to use Tamaki in Kokkoro's slot to provide more damage and to TP steal to make the boss UB less often. Once again, you want to make sure you're not using your UB into the defense up skill 1. With enough stars, levels, and ranks, your units should survive enough to one hit the boss. Otherwise, you can always do this over two or three hits. Your first clear of the Very Hard boss will get you 10 Mifuyu (Summer) memory shards so it's absolutely worth doing, but if it takes you more than three hits to kill, considering just killing the Hard boss for subsequent attempts.
This event will also feature a free character for completing an objective/mission during the event. After you defeat the boss 5 times on any difficulty, you will get a free 1* Mifuyu (Summer). She doesn't see too much use but you'll want to collect her memory shards since you would have to use divine amulets or wait for a rerun in the future.
We're finally onto the main point of each of these events. The rewards that come along with it. In addition to the first clear bonuses, there are also a set number of event treasure boxes. Think of it as a mini gacha machine but each one has a set number of items. To roll this treasure gacha box, you get pulls from defeating the event boss and completing daily missions. You do not need to clear out every single item in each box to move on to the next one. However, you will need to obtain the main items in the box. In this case, the main items are the memory shards for the characters. (You would want to collect these anyway.) The contents of each of the boxes are listed below. You may want to consider farming the event for the endless box since you can obtain more memory shards for Mifuyu (Summer).

Total Memory Shards
A breakdown of all the possible memory shards gained from missions, story, and the boxes are listed here:
Note: This does not include memory shards from hard mission drops. These only include the ones you are guaranteed to get assuming you complete the tasks.
As you can see, you'll be getting a lot of memory shards for Mifuyu (Summer). The first clear of the Very Hard version of the boss has a mission that gives 10 Mifuyu (Summer) shards so be sure to at least clear it once if possible.
All in all, this is going to be an interesting event to test your skills on. Not to mention, we'll all be rolling for Karyl (Summer)! Pray to the gacha gods! You may need it. Until then, we'll see you in our next article.
