There are still clear rewards available to collect, so see how far you can go!


Summary
The Transient Sorceress ranking event will be available from the ACT II world map.
Once entered, defeat the bosses that appear before you to proceed forward!


Draw
In the Transient Sorceress ranking event, you can Draw abilities from certain enemies.
Using Draw during battle will stock up enemy abilities, which can be used by selecting Cast.

Some foes have very powerful abilities so be sure to Draw them and use them to your advantage!
Furthermore, Ultimecia will summon foes during battle and attempt to Draw & Cast powerful abilities from them so be on the lookout!
You also need to keep in mind that the summoned foes must be defeated before Ultimecia has a chance to draw its ability.

Time Limit
The hourglass icon on the very right of the following screen appears with a number which represents the amount of turns remaining until Ultimecia unleashes her powerful Ultimate attack. This number will reduce with every turn but also will reduce several turns with the Time Compression that Ultimecia uses so be sure to keep a close eye on her actions/icon.



Time Compression
The Time Compression which Ultimecia uses does indeed compress time during battle.
Once Time Compression initiates, it will make time jump forward several turns ahead, allowing Ultimecia to attack Double or Triple times. During the Double or Triple mode, she will cast powerful magic attacks in succession, so you must beware!

All is not lost! While Ultimecia is in countdown for Time Compression, try using Stun or Sleep to slow her down, or Break her gauge to prevent Time Compression!

BUT!! There is also a downside to Ultimecia's Time Compression.
Since time is forwarded several turns, of course the player's ability card recast timer will decrease, and any ailment inflicted with counters will also decrease. Use Time Compression cleverly to your advantage, and you may just snatch victory from the claws of the evil sorceress!


New Echo
In commemoration of the new ranking event, The Transient Sorceress, a new Faerie appears!
Once the region is cleared you will receive Ultimecia Echo!


Once Cleared...
After you have cleared the event, you can challenge your limits in the Phantasmic Coil.
The Phantasmic Coil is an unforgiving battle area where no rental cards and no revivals are allowed.
In addition to the clear rewards, we have also prepared the Ranking Rewards so try your best to aim for the top!

In addition, you will find areas labeled Novice, Adept, and Master in the Phantasmic Coil once it appears.
Novice starts as normal from Loop 1, so it is perfect for those who want to go at their own pace, taking their time to observe enemies and their traits!
Adept and Master areas will be unlocked after the Phantasmic Coil has been traversed a certain number of loops and will become shortcut areas in which you can obtain ability tickets and ranking results equal to having cleared the equivalent number of loops manually.

You can choose which area to head to, Novice, Adept, or Master, once you start the Phantasmic Coil.
Please keep in mind that once the mode is selected and the area is cleared, you cannot go back to that area to select another difficulty mode.

Rewards
Rankings will be finalized at the end of the event period and the following rewards distributed accordingly.
* In the case of a tie, the player with the higher battle score will receive the higher ranking.
