Which male lead should you take to the Tomb of Ita in the Tears of Themis Secrets of the Tomb event?

Some male leads are objectively better than others in this event!

The Tears of Themis Secrets of the Tomb event runs from April 29, 2022, to May 20, 2022. During the event, you can explore the Tomb of Ita with the male leads to get Antiquated Coins and Exploration EXP, which can be exchanged for various rewards.

Upon starting an Exploration, you can choose one of the four male leads to accompany you. In most Tears of Themis events, choosing a different boy doesn't change the gameplay. But in Secrets of the Tomb, each love interest has a unique skill that you can activate once on each floor. You may find that some skills are more useful than others.

Which Male Leads are best for Exploration?

If you want to efficiently farm Antiquated Coins, it's highly recommended to use Vyn, as his skill will recover Energy, increasing your Exploration potential. Next in line would be Artem, as archeological tools are extremely useful in Exploration as well. Marius and Luke would be the lowest priorities, with Luke's skill being the least helpful.

In higher Exploration levels, you may find that Artem's skill is more useful than Vyn's. Likewise, Marius and Luke's skills aren't much help in higher levels either. However, if you're playing for fun, then explore the ruins with your favorite male lead!
