For newcomers, the Novice Convene is available, offering a discounted cost of eight draws. Additionally, there’s a guarantee of acquiring a five-star Resonator within 50 pulls.

Furthermore, there are special Resonator and Weapon Event Convenes, providing opportunities to obtain time-limited rewards.

Lastly, players can access the standard Resonator and Weapon Convene for regular draws.

The game also implements a pity system and a 50/50 mechanism when drawing Resonators.

Within 80 pulls, players are guaranteed to obtain a five-star Resonator. However, there’s a twist: there’s a chance to receive either the time-limited character or a standard character.

In the standard Weapon Permanent Convene, players have the freedom to choose the type of weapon they desire.
