New Operators
Goldenglow - 6 Star Caster
Goldenglow is the first 6 Star Mech-Accord in Arknights. She can release multiple Drones to attack or self-destruct beside enemies to deal Damage. Her second skill permanently expands her Attack Range and increases the Drone’s number and Attack. When the third skill is activated, Goldenglow herself stops attacking and enables her Drones to attack and slow the enemies in a global Attack Range.
Quercus - 5 Star Supporter
As an Abjurer, Quercus can apply a Sanctuary effect to protect allies and shift to healing mode by activating skills. Quercus’s first skill can increase her Attack. When the second skill is in effect, she can boost her Attack Speed and each of her heals will restore 1 Skill Point to the target.

New Arrivals in the Store
New outfits from the 0011 Tempest Series are now available at the store, including “Unfettered” for Ceobe and “Wild Flower of Street” for Waai Fu. At the same time, a brand-new set of themed furniture, “Caladon Light Store”, will be on sale. Don’t miss them!
