So this part of the guide wasn’t supposed to be here so soon, but too many people were asking questions about it in the FB group. What is KRSK!? Does it concern me? Why can’t I evolve my cards properly with proper mats, but instead they require strange cards!? What’s that card material at the top-right and bottom-left called and where do I get them? Don’t panic dear friends, this guide is here to save you.
Firstly, let’s have a Q&A session like the previous time.
1. What is KRSK?
KRSK, or 乖离进化, or Kairisei evolve/upgrade, is basically a 2nd route of upgrading a 5* UR card apart from the usual one where you need the infamous Legend Kirari and similar element smaller Kiraris. The usual route arrives at a 6* MR card of the same stats composition, same skill, identical element and same Class. KRSK route arrives at a 6* MR card with different stats composition, different skill, different element and different Class, meaning it changes a card into an entirely new one.
2. Why complicate stuff? Why not just release new cards?
KRSK is a way for the game to bring new life to older, washed up cards (aka store-master cards, or cards best left in the basement store) and turn them into totally different, new, powerful cards of another Class!
3. What are the materials needed to KRSK my card?
Materials are cards dropped from event bosses like Pixie, Dancer and Silky for this season. If you see some cards which look foreign to you, fret not, they will appear in the near future. The KRSK tool was only released into the other servers at around the 13th season, so our server is actually progressing too quickly in this aspect (resulting in players possessing the OP KRSK Nimue so early in the game ._.).
4. Why does it always say 1/6 when I’ve already farmed 6 of them?
So here’s a simple demo.
In order to KRSK the above Bard card into the new Thief card, we need to have the materials listed. So why is mine 3/3, and not 1/3 like many of you experienced? Cos Fame.
The game recognizes the number of copies you have in terms of Fame. So, feed 2 into the main one to obtain 3 Fame, and it will automatically show 3/3 in the upgrade screen.
Then once you have gathered all the required mats, you will GET your new KRSK card!
5. What happens to my cards’ Fame if I KRSK them?
Fame retains, and non KRSK-ed versions can be fed to the new KRSK-ed version to raise Fame, so you don’t need to KRSK 100 copies just to get a 100 Fame card you like ._.
6. How can I go to the normal upgrade screen? This KRSK version sucks (AWC Percival we are looking at you)!
You notice there’s a up arrow on top so just swipe the nasty KRSK preview down and away and you will arrive at the normal upgrade option!
7. Can I refund? Like, if I am not pleased with this new KRSK card, can I turn it back to square one?
Of course you can. But then you’ll need more mats, the proper ones though.
8. Can I still KRSK a card if I’ve already maxed it as a MR at level 60?
Yes of course. However, you will require fewer mats if you do that. Instead of the usual 3 for UR mats and 6 for SR mats, you will now only need 2 per UR mat and 3 per SR mat. You can treat this discount as compensation for the normal evolve mats you used when upgrading the original card from UR to MR 🙂
Also, when KRSK-ing a lvl 50 UR, the end result will be a lvl 1 MR, while KRSK-ing a lvl 60 MR will result in a lvl 60 MR, so… no XP lost!
9. Are all cards worth KRSK-ing?
Maybe not. Like the above mentioned AWC Percival, the resulting card is actually not that great while the original card is a staple for Thiefs. Please KRSK at your own discretion and analyze carefully the pros and cons, especially if you plan on playing more than one Class.
10. I heard there is a KRSK version of Joan, and it’s very powerful, why don’t I see the option to KRSK it like I do for Himiko?
KRSK cards are also released in seasons. Some KRSK for older cards were released much later than the ones we get to see now. So, please be patient, we are only in Season 2, and I have to say, S2 is
So there’s no easy to way to end this chapter, but let’s say hi to our favorite card again ❤
