    Welcome to the information hub of the 3rd Story Arc for Brave Frontier! In the Spoiler tab below, will give a short explanation on why this mode exists. [Note: Story Spoilers for Mildran]

    After Summoner and Friends defeat Karna Masta in Mildran, they lose all of their summoning powers as Summoners due to Karna Masta being the source of the summoning powers.. In the 3rd story arc, Summoner must fight to gain their powers back in unknown lands.

    Moving along, players will be able to create and customize their own Unit to use during the quests; Summoner unit can be any type and cane be customized in a multitude of ways, some screenshots below showcase this.

    Summoner will level up through EXP gained in Quests and unlock unit slots as the story goes along. It's also good to note that Summoner's Story will be in a completely separate mode as seen in the short screenshot gallery below.

    Summoner unit and Summoner's Story will release on a Maint+App Update on July 29th! After the maint, players will be given (3) "EXP Waters" which will increase Summoner EXP, SP, and Weapon EXP gained for 30 minutes. First Map of Arc 3 will be titled "Bekutasu" There will be a addition of a LS Sphere house as Summoner levels up.

    After completing their journey in Ishgria.
    The summoner and friends set off to another world with a new goal.


    In the other world, the summoner cannot use his summoning arts as he always have,
    and must fight on his own for the first time.


    In the unknown world of conspiracies and chaos,
    A new story awaits the summoner and friends!


    Introducing the Summoner Unit!

    In this third arc in another world, summoning is limited and the summoner must begin the adventure with his/her own power.

    With the power of the Goddess, you are able to change your element. But not only is it temporary, your power has drastically decreased.

    You, the summoner, must manage your element and equipment depending on the quest and challenge the battles!

    By progressing through the quests, the summoner unit will gradually grow stronger.

    Additionally, by changing your weapon, you are able to change your appearance.

    Let is take back the power to summon by training ourselves!
    Menon is required to unlock this mode, Mildran does not have to be completed.

    How to raise your Summoner
    Similar to the unit menu, there will be a Summoner Menu in place of the summon button where you get to raise/customize your summoner.

    Left columnRight column
    StatusAbility upgrade
    FusionEX Skill
    EquipmentLS Sphere
    Ability Upgrade: Equivalent of the SP skills of omni units, you can spend SP to learn various abilities. SP can be gained randomly by defeating enemies, or by fusing Burst Frogs, Sphere Frogs and Burst Emperors. Unlike normal units, mob units cannot be fused into the Summoner unit to gain SP.

    EX skill: This refers to the skill attached to a weapon. It can be learned by gaining weapon levels through completing quests. Unlike normal EX skills, it can be freely detached without the use of an Emgif. Weapon levels can be gained by completing battles, or fusing Metal-type units.

    Leader Skill Sphere: Spheres which can only be equipped by the summoner. It can be crafted in the village and will require existing spheres as well as new materials to be introduced in the 3rd arc to craft.

    Regarding weapons: There will be 4 types of weapons for now, the basic sword, a spear which can be be obtained early on, the promo weapon from purchasing One Night Werewolf, and the third story weapon which will apparently contain an important secret story-wise (looking forward to that)

    As mentioned earlier, weapons change your stats. For example, a spear give you higher DEF than a sword, which will help you fight enemies with high attack.

    Items might be important since you will only have yourself+a helper in the beginning. You don't want to be permafrozen by a group of unicorns.
    The home screen looks like this.
    There are 3 varieties of hairstyles for each gender
    Element Mastery screen.. Yellow bar is stats and blue bar is BB gauge modifiers. Are you unable to use BB if the bar is not at 100%? I'm not sure. Note the BB level on the side. Also, below the level bar at the top, it says "next level: BB level of 4-star fire units becomes 4". By gaining EXP and raising element levels, your units will become stronger.

    Regarding the Story [Potential Part 2 Spoilers]
    There was a few months between arc 1 and 2 story-wise, but the events of the 3rd arc happen immediately after the 2nd arc. The characters were worried that they might lose the ability to summon after defeating Karna Masta (since KM created the art of summoning), but nothing happened in the end. At that time, Lugina was under the orders of the leader of the Otherworld survey office. It seems the power which was used to create the ability to summon was sourced from something not of this world, which is why they were able to summon even after defeating KM. Because of this, the summoner and others will travel to different worlds to investigate the source of the power.

    This is a view of the office.Image of Lanas (center) and his officers

    As you can see, they're wearing military-style outfits, which contrast the Arkras Summoners' Hall. These two Organizations have the same goal (gathering information about other worlds) but differ in their methods. The Abel Institute is ahead of Arkras in progress, and Lanas does not approve of Arkras' way of doing things, saying "[they] can't make a strong organization which protects the people". In other words, it is a competition between the Akras Summoners' Hall and the Abel Institute.

    This arc will be divided into chapters, the first chapter being the previously mentioned world "Bektas"(trying to stay accurate rather than trying too hard to localize here). The chapters will be paced at around one every 2 months or so, so the next update will be around late September.

    Once again, the Summoning Arts Research Institute will have lots of content in the future, as well as a brand new multiplayer feature. Stay tuned!
