Wishes remain an exclusive currency in Anime Defenders, but developers will introduce new ways for free-to-play players to earn them. One of them is an F2P-friendly battle pass. It will include quests that allow players to get Wishes and other premium or rare items. With the upcoming update, Wishes will be untradable to ensure a fair distribution among players.

What are Divine Wishes in Anime Defenders?

Divine Wishes are premium versions of Wishes in Anime Defenders. Unlike regular Wishes, Divine ones can be traded. You'll be able to buy Divine Wishesfor Robux to get improved odds for summons compared to regular Wishes. All players who have purchased Robux Wishes will be automatically compensated with Divine Wishes.

What are Spirit Orbs in Anime Defenders?

Spirit Orbs will be used to summon a Spirit that attaches to a unit, providing strong buffs. You'll be able to summon a spirit at Spirit Orb Shrine in the game lobby. Units with attached Spirits will keep their buffs until the Spirit is removed by the player. It's important to note that Spirited units cannot be traded. Spirit Orbs can only be earned by grinding and will not be tradable.

What are Portals in Anime Defenders?

Portals will be a new feature that adds a layer of challenge, allowing you to earn valuable rewards. There will be three types of portals, each with its own Secret Portal Unit that can drop by playing it. Higher rarity portals have higher drop chances for Secret Portal Units.

Secret Rarity Portals have a 100% drop chance. Each portal will have a random challenge that players won't know until they start playing. Portals won't be tradable, and hosts will have slightly better drop rates than other players who join.

New Limited Banner features in Anime Defenders

A new banner featuring Secret, Mythic, Legendary, Epic, and Rare units will be introduced. This banner will run longer than previous ones, allowing more time for upcoming updates and players to pull for limited units.

New Season Rewards in Anime Defenders

A new leaderboard season has been announced, introducing more rewards, one of which will be Divine Wishes. A special unit will also be added to reward top players.

New Items in Anime Defenders

Several new items will be added to the game to improve player experience. You'll be able to get tradable game passes. Mini Luck Potions (5-minute duration) can be dropped from game modes or the battle pass, and their duration can be stacked, providing F2P players with better luck.
