Sharun – Wind Elemental 5-Star Unit

Players were blatantly surprised as this new hero was released in the patch preview livestream held on 20th July. Players did not expect a back-to-back release of another hero. Nonetheless, Sharun, a natural 5-Star Wind unit that is classified as a Soul Weaver is being added to the ever-growing roster of heroes in Epic Seven. Her hero description reads the following – “A high shaman from a family that has been serving Theranhad’s emperors since its founding.

Side Story – Clouded Foresight 

A new side story especially for the new hero Sharun is going to be released after the patch update on 21st July 2022. Players will be able to experience a vast new storyline where Sharun tells her tale in a systematic manner. The description for the side story reads the following – “Sharun and the royal family visit the Summer Shrine for the emperor’s funeral, who died during the war against the Wicked. 

Since the emperor had not nominated a successor before he passed, the funeral is crowded with successor candidates aiming to sit on the throne.

Then, Sharun foresees a disastrous incident taking place inside the shrine…”. 

During the side story, players will travel to different locations on the side story map.

Stages will be divided into 3 unique types:

  • Story Stage – In these stages, players will be tasked to view the main storyline of the side story. These stages might be or might not be associated with a battle sequence depending on the stage. In these stages, Sharun will be accompanying players in the battle as an NPC character. These stages will also have some additional conditions which are required to be fulfilled by the players in order to obtain extra premium currency. Players will also earn the event currency for this side story after they emerge victorious.
  • Battle Stage – In these stages, players will be tasked to participate in and win battles against waves of enemies. These stages might also have certain conditions required to be fulfilled in order to obtain the premium currency. Some battle stages may also provide Sharun as an NPC hero that is mandatory to be taken into the battles. Players will earn event currency as well post the victory.
  • Boss Stage – In these stages, players are required to defeat the boss monster that will come at the end of the waves of enemies. These stages provide players with a higher amount of event currency compared to regular battle stages. Boss stages are further divided into multiple difficulties to suit the level of players – Easy Difficulty/ Normal Difficulty/ Hard Difficulty/ Extreme Difficulty. 

Players are required to have cleared at least Episode 1, Chapter 10 Stage 10 to be able to access the side story. The Clouded Foresight side story is going to run for 2 weeks.
