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 can get one SS-Class character, either Zwei or Jin, and any number of S-class and 3-4 star grimoires.

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 painless, and you are limited only by your download speed.

What is a good starting roll?

SS of choice (either Jin or Zwei), 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 and the 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 8pm 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 is Sparking?

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

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

300 rolls requires 60000 , which is roughly 800 USD in-game value. The term "sparking" comes from a similar mechanic in the game Granblue Fantasy.

What to do with gacha tickets?

They don't contribute to your spark totals, so feel free to throw them at the banner of your choice guilt-free. They also count for the purposes of clearing the daily mission "Roll the gacha 1 time" 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.

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 exp are the daily quests and the hard missions.

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 your transfer code to change devices. You will need to generate a new bind code every time.

What are some machine translation options?


  • 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.

  • 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.
