Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install the game?

Android users: You can acquire the game through QooApp or Apkpure.
iOS users: You need to have a Japanese apple store account, and then you can download and install as usual.

How do I reroll?

In the first gacha roll after the tutorial, click the YELLOW button (on the right) to reroll, and the BLUE button (on the left) to keep your roll. You can reroll this initial roll endlessly. You get a free copy of Jin and Zwei from beginner missions and login rewards.

If you have a rooted android device or emulator:

Using a file manager, navigate to "/data/data/com.arcsystemworks.bbdw". Then delete the file: "com.acrsystemworks.bbdw.v2.playerprefs.xml". This deletes your account without deleting app data.

Otherwise, uninstall and reinstall game. Tutorial can be skipped, rerolling is fairly easy, and you are limited only by your download speed.

What is a good starting roll?

One or multiple SS characters of choice, 1-2 S-Class characters, the rest is up to you!
See this page for the available pool of characters.
Check this Japanese-language writeup for an idea of suggested units and rolls.

Now that I've gotten my characters, what should I do?

Clearing the panel mission, beginner mission, logging in daily and doing daily missions is a great way to start out with the game. It nets you some rewards and eases you into a lot of the gameplay systems and parts of the menu. Afterwards, progressing the main story, doing daily quests, or character quests is a good idea.

When is daily reset?

Daily Missions reset at Midnight JST, while the shops reset at 4am JST, 12pm JST, and 6pm JST.

What are the game’s rarities?

You can only summon AII, AI, S, or SS rare characters. You can upgrade any character all the way up to SS+++. AII rarity characters so far are only found in the Friend Point Gacha.

What are Embodiment Coins and how do I use them?

Each roll of a Crystallized Azure gacha banner rewards you one coin specific to that banner. For example, in the Crystallized Azure Gacha, each roll awards an Embodiment Coin.

After acquiring 300 coins (doing 300 rolls) from that specific banner, it is possible to pick one of the banner targets and exchange coins for them. In-game, the exchange can be made from the blue "具現欠晶交換/Exchange Embodiment Coins" (or other coin name) button in the top right of the gacha banner.

Unused coins from limited time banners will be converted to Embodiment Coins for the Crystallized Azure Gacha, which is always available, after the limited-time banner ends. So you won't lose any coins and can accumulated them later for a non-limited character.

300 rolls requires 60000 , which is roughly 800 USD in-game value. A more widely known term for this mechanic is "sparking", popularized by Granblue Fantasy.

What to do with gacha tickets?

Tickets don't generate any coins, so feel free to use them at the banner of your choice guilt-free. They also count for the purposes of clearing the daily mission in which you have to get an item from one of the gachas.

Different gacha tickets pull from different banners, and thus the pool of characters available differs between tickets. Each ticket is labeled with the pool it is connected to. Tickets will not expire, so even if a time limited banner ends you can still get limited grimoires and characters afterwards.

How do I raise the level cap?

Level cap is tied to your account level. Keep playing the game, and your characters can be raised higher.
Good sources of account experience are daily quests and hard missions in the story.

How do I limit-break characters?

BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War features two different limit break system; one which raises the characters rarity and increases stats and unlocks the feature to enhance skills, Distortion Drives, Astral Heat and further passive skills, and one which only increases stats and drops of event currency items.

The former, called Ascending, is done by collecting character pieces. Each rarity requires a different amount of pieces. Pieces can be collected and from quests, dupes of characters and more.

The later can only be done by acquiring dupes of a character, or by using . A limit break is marked by a crown, which ranges from none, bronze, silver to gold.

Can I play with my account on another device?

Unfortunately, every time you want to switch your account to another device you will need to use a transfer code to change devices. You will need to generate a new bind code every time.

How long do transfer accounts last and what can I do when I lose my account?

Currently transfer codes only last for 24 hours. Be careful if you want to transfer devices that the code is not outdated.

In the case you lose your account, either due to data deletion or lost of device, you can try to contact the BBDW customer support. They will ask you very specific questions about you account. To be very safe, write down or make screenshots (and store them somewhere safely) what characters, grimoires and items you own, what quests you cleared, and more.

What are some machine translation options?

Android

  • Kaku is a Japanese OCR program that can pull text from the screen and can let you look up individual kanji as you read. This option requires knowledge of Japanese grammar, as it is not a full translation program.

These applications can read and translate text from screenshots.

Windows

  • Yandex OCR also has the above features, but requires the upload of screenshots to a website.
  • Capture2Text is a lightweight OCR program that rips raw text to a floating clipboard, which can be sent to your translation service of choice.

Plaintext Translation Services:
