Frequently Asked Questions (Events)
Here is a collection of frequently asked questions for events.
EQ.1) How can I capture Special Event Units like Stya and Alma?
EA.1) Special event units like Stya and Alma can be captured by defeating them on any level of difficulty in the event, but the chances for capturing them go higher with difficulty. The chance for capturing the special event units is not 100% at Lv 3, but it is higher than Lv 2 and Lv 1.
The reward for clearing Lv 3 for the first time is 1 Gem, not the event unit.
EQ.2) I see starting units like Selena and Atro spawn in special event quests. Can I capture them?
EA.2) Yes, if they spawn at Lv 2 or Lv 3 then you have a small chance of capturing them.
EQ.3) When they have increased drop rate events of specific elements in the Rare Summon Gate, does that guarantee me a unit of that element?
EA.3) The increased drop rate of specific elements (such as the recent Thunder and Dark events) do increase the rate of the specified units being summoned, but the chances are still random. There is still a chance to get other units of different elements and there is still a chance to get duplicate units, but the chances for the specified element to appear are definitely higher than normal.
EQ.4) Alma's Leader skill does not fill up my Brave Burst gauge. Is it bugged?
EA.4) Alma's Leader skill only increases the Brave Burst gauge by a certain amount. It is not meant to fill the gauge. This is intended.
EQ.5) What time is the Metal Parade / Maintenance for my country?
EA.5) Please go to time converting sites like this < http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ > in order to find out what time the Metal Parade / Maintenance is scheduled for you.
Frequently Asked Questions (Technical Help)
This section of the FAQ is meant to help users who are experiencing technical problems with Brave Frontier.
TQ.1) Missing unit images, button text, damaged or blacked out monster/unit graphics.
TA.1) This is usually a result of corrupted datafiles. If restarting the device doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to reinstall Brave Frontier. Make sure that you have enough storage space on your device.
TQ.2) "This is not a Test User account" error when making in-app purchases for iOS users.
TA.2) Please do the following proceedure:
1) Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store.
2) Tap on the Apple ID and delete the entry.
3) Tap Done.
4) Restart device.
TQ.3) App crashes sometimes when starting quests and vortex events and I lose energy for Android users.
TA.3) Make sure that your version of the game is updated. Delete the app and reinstall with the latest download.
TQ.4) I cannot link my Facebook account to my Brave Frontier account.
TA.4) There are sometimes issues with specific Facebook accounts that prevent you from linking. A known solution is to create a new Facebook account and try to link that to Brave Frontier so that your game data can be saved.
Also see TQ.10 for another possible solution.
TQ.5) I logged in Brave Frontier in another device now I cannot access the game in my previous one (or the current one)
TA.5) This is an issue with Facebook accounts. It's currently not advisable to log in the same Brave Frontier account in multiple devices to avoid this problem until it is resolved.
TQ.6) I'm using an iPod 4th Gen (or some other similar device with low specs)
TA.6) Brave Frontier was made to work with more modern devices with at least 1gb RAM/memory. It's advised to update to a better device but you can try the following:
1) Tap home
2) Tap menu
3) Tap settings
4) Turn off volume and battle effects
5) Restart device
6) Turn off every other app that isn't needed
7) Play and repeat the process every 30 minutes to 1 hour of gameplay, depending on how quickly the device slows down.
There is still no guarantee of a smooth gameplay experience even if you follow these steps if you are using a device that is below the minimum spec requirements.
TQ.7) I want to reset my Brave Frontier account and try again from the start.
TA.7) Brave Frontier currently does not have a feature that will allow users to reset their account on the same device. Users can start a new account on a new device. There is currently no recommended way to restart your progress in Brave Frontier.
TQ.8) Can't buy on Android device - "Your order was declined because it was considered high-risk"
TA.8) This is a message from a fraud detection system Google uses to prevent malicious payment transactions from been executed. Before executing a payment transaction, Google tried to analyze how safe a transaction is. Multiple parameters can impact this check. A probability of "bad transaction" rises, for instance, when multiple payments are executed by different devices using the same credit card very often, or when same credit card is used by multiple accounts, or when user pays and then cancels payments multiple times in a row, etc.
It will usually go away after some time. If you have any issues with it you will have to contact Google Play Support.
TQ.9) I get stuck during combat as if the game is waiting for me to take a turn but I have already done actions with all my available units.
TA.9) If you have been moving units around, there is a rare case where you can place two units on in the same squad position. The game believes you have one more unit which won't be on display to tap because it is in the same position as another unit. This can happen when you go in with less than a full squad but happens very rarely.
The solution is to move your units around or remove them one by one and re-add them after revealing the extra unit that was hidden.
TQ.10) com.facebook.sdk error 2 on iOS
TA.10) Go to your settings, select Facebook, tap on your name and click "Delete account" and then you can try running Brave Frontier again.
Another thing you can try is to disallow Brave Frontier from Facebook and allow it again.
TQ.11) All my gems disappeared after maintenance.
TA.11) Restart the app. If that does not work, clear cache and reinstall the app. Sometimes it might take 30-60 minutes for your gems to reappear.
TQ.12) Insufficient HP error.
TA.12) Just restart the app.
TQ.13) Cannot retrieve user info (iOS)
TA.13) (Make sure that your account is linked to Facebook before doing this!) Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings (Enter Passcode) (Do not select ERASE ALL CONTENT AND SETTINGS)
Note: By doing this, all your preferences and settings will be reset.
TQ.14) I can't log back into Facebook in Brave Frontier
TA.14) Tap Home -> Social -> Add Friend -> Add Facebook Friend
TQ. 15) I'm using LG G2 device and the game always crashes. Why?
The device has a very fast processor but gets overheated after an extensive use. Try to close other apps that are running in the background while playing Brave Frontier and give the device a chance to cool down before playing a massive / special event dungeon.

6) Where do I obtain <Units that appear in the Rare Summon Gate> without using the Rare Summon Gate? (Alternately: Can I capture <Unit that begins at 3 Star> during the boss battle at <Stage>?)
All units that begin at 3 Stars and above cannot be obtained except through the Rare Summon Gate. However, if the unit's base form is at 2 Stars, you can obtain it through the Honor Summon Gate. 3 Star units in quests will usually be captured in their 2 Star form with some exception of Special Event Units.
(Vargas, Selena, Lance, Eze, Atro, Magress, Zegar, Zephu, Lario, Weiss, Luna and Mifune can be obtained through the Honor Summon Gate)
You can also capture some units, but only if they spawn on the field. For your reference, these are the locations and units you can capture:
- Volcano Eldent - Phoenix of the Volcano - Beast Zegar
- Sacred Mt. Craylia - The Mountain-Dwelling Devil - Zephu
- Blood Forest - The World Tree - Archer Lario
- Mt. Wistorea - The Raged Beast of Destruction - Advisor Weiss
- Secluded Sanctuary - Conqueror of the Heavens - Luna
- Cave of Malice - The Death-Beckoning Devil - Mifune
7) I am not regenerating Arena orbs! Why is this happening? What can I do?
Did the game app crash while you were in the Arena? If this happens too often, the game will temporarily restrict your Arena Energy regeneration. You will have to wait a while for it to resume, or you can gain a level to restore your Arena Orbs.
8) What do I need to Evolve <Unit>?
Please go to our Wiki's Unit Evolution List
9) My game keeps crashing when I reach the <Morgan Map> stage!
Are you using an iPod Touch or similar device? If your device has less than 512MB RAM, you will begin to crash as you play. Restart your device and regular intervals and close all other apps to save memory. You can also delete some files and free up 1GB or more of disk space if restarting does not help.
10) Where can I get Gems without spending?
You will earn Gems after clearing the last stage in a Quest zone for the first time. That means that you can obtain 8 Gems from Mistral, 7 Gems from Morgan and 7 Gems from St. Lamia.
You can also earn a Gem the first time you complete the Metal Parade, and every three Arena ranks starting at Novice. (Total of 9 Gems you can obtain from Arena Ranks)
11) How do I trigger a Great Success or a Super Success? Why do my units earn EXP at different rates?
By fusing a unit with the same Element as the Base unit, you will gain a 50% EXP bonus. Great- and Super-Success happens randomly; there is no way to 'trigger' it. Just fuse five units with the same element as your Base unit, and pray for the best!
12) How do I level up my Brave Burst?
When you fuse units with the same type of Brave Burst as your Base unit, there is a chance to earn a Burst Level Up. You can check your Brave Burst type on the unit's status screen (View Unit)
The three kinds of Brave Bursts are:
- Damage (Anything that deals damage whether AoE or single target)
- Healing (Anything that recovers HP)
- Support (Boosts all Allies' Def/Crit/Atk/etc)
Also, as of an update in April 2014, when a unit evolves, half of its Brave Burst level (rounded down) will carry over to the new unit. For example, a unit with BB Lv. 10 that evolves will start with BB Lv. 5. Another example is a unit with BB Lv. 5 that evolves will start with BB Lv. 2.
13) Where do I find <Crafting Material>?
Rare Crafting materials appear randomly in the Hostile Relics dungeons .
Here are the dungeons that drop the item you need:
- The Wandering Spirit Lv. 2 - Guardian Eye, Blood Pelt, Red Stone
- The Wandering Spirit Lv. 3 - Worn Fang
- Shrine of Lystia (Chest Drop) - Blood Pelt (confirmed)
14) When is the next Metal Parade going to take place?
Keep an eye out for news on the Metal Parade on our Facebook page!
15) Can I capture Juggernaut, Demon Abaddon or Creator Maxwell?
No - you cannot capture these, and most other, boss units.
16) How to pass Level 3 Enchanted Paradise?
Have a group with an average star rating of 3 stars and the characters should be around level 40. Higher is better, of course! It's better to have a mix of elements to avoid getting wiped out by a specific combination of monsters. You can bring Seals to reduce damage or try bringng two healers. If facing something against your element, you can have your summons that are weak against it guard. Have at least 2,800-3,000 HP on most if not all of your characters. Bring Cure, High Cure, Divine Light and Revive along with a Seal.
17) What is the purpose of Karma and why do I have to farm it?
Karma is used to upgrade structures and resource nodes in the Village of the Venturer and to synthesize Spheres (Town) Quests and Dungeons give Karma points. You can farm more Karma Points in Monday Dungeon.
18) When is the <insert event> in <insert location / time zone> ?
Usually, date and time are postes in PST (UTC -8). You also use this website to convert the time in your time zone: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

19) How do I get my Player ID?
20) What do the unit stats like REC mean?
Here are the basic stats of the units in Brave Frontier.
Lv - This is the current level of your unit. Each unit can have different maximum levels. Higher star units can reach higher levels.
HP - This represents your unit's health. If a unit takes damage, it is deducted from this total. Once a unit's HP reaches 0, it is defeated.
COST - This stat shows the cost of a unit to include in a squad. Your maximum squad cost goes up every few levels. If a unit's cost causes you to exceed your maximum then you cannot include it in your squad.
ATK - This represents the amount of damage your unit can deal. The higher it is the better.
DEF - This represents the amount of damage your unit reduces when it is attacked.
REC - This stat determines how much healing a unit receives from potions, Heart Crystals and healing Brave Bursts.
21) Will the damage from two similar leader skills and Muramasa stack? (+50% fire damage, +50% fire damage and +50% more damage from Muramasa)
Yes. The second leader skill will also increase your damage if it is similar to the first leader skill. If your base damage is 100 and you have two 50% damage leaders and a Muramasa (+50% again) you will deal 250 damage with all of them active.
22) What are the various Types and what do they do?
Types determine the stat progression of your unit.
- LORD: All stats progress evenly from base stats.
- ANIMA: HP increased by a certain %, REC reduced by a certain %.
- BREAKER: ATK increased by a certan %, DEF reduced by a certain %.
- GUARDIAN: DEF increased by a certain %, ATK reduced by a certain %.
- ORACLE: REC increased by a certain %, HP reduced by a certain %.
23) Is it possible to be demoted to a lower rank in Arena if I lose too many points?
Yes. If you reach the minimum number of Arena Points for your current Arena rank and then lose another match, you will be taken down to the previous bracket.
And no, you cannot lower your arena rank and then regain it in order to get the appropriate rank rewards a second time.
24) How does the Rare Summon Gate work?
If you have 5 gems (either purchased, acquired from playing, or awarded from Present Box due to events) then you can use the Rare Summon Gate.
- You will get a unit that has a minimum of 3 stars.
- The element of the unit will be random.
- The type of the unit will be random.
- It is possible to get duplicate units.
- There is a small chance for you to get 4 star Super Rare units.
- There is a small chance for you to get 5 star Mega Rare units.
- There are many units here that are not available in the Honor Summon Gate such as Alice, Lava, and Phoenix.
- The starter units and two others are not available here: Selena, Lance, Vargas, Eze, Magress, Atro. These are only available through Honor Summons.
25) What is Spark condition triggered when my units attack a target together? How does it work?
The Spark condition triggers when two or more units hit/deal damage on one target at the same time. There is a very small window of time for the Spark condition to trigger, so taking attack animations and unit movement speed into account is important.
Triggering it yields great benefits to the keen Summoner: You will deal extra damage to the target and get more drops. This stacks with other items/attacks that increase drops, such as Thief Bracers.
