Rockman X DiVE - The Phantom, The Maid and The Glittering Spark

This week's Rockman X DiVE content update brings a new skin, the second Raid Boss event, a new weapon, and a few questionable decisions before next week's big event. Let's check it out after the break!

Let's start with the banner for this week with the spray weapon "Glittering Spark." This banner also gives you a guaranteed S rank weapon in the 1st, 3rd and 5th draw of a 10-pull. The banner is already live and lasts until October 28 at 15:59.

Beam Chain 

Deals 34.04% damage to target; the chain will continue to travel and seek other targets in range and cause 25% damage.

Passive Skills
  • Armed Destruction: After hitting, there is a chance to weaken the target, reducing the target’s damage dealt by 27.23%.
  • DEF Increase: DEF is increased by 31 when using this weapon.
  • Damage Reduction Resistance: 30% chance to become immune to the effects of Damage Reduction; the same type of chance can be stacked.
  • Shining Trail: The attack can penetrate one additional target, and the damage after the penetration is increased by 25%.
  • Power Increase: Increase damage rate by 5%.
  • Damage Reduction Special Attack: When you hit a target in damage reduction status, increase damage you deal by 10%.

The 2nd
Raid Boss Event is already live and will last until November 1st at 22:00 (UTC+8).

Just like the previous time, this mode will call for players in the same server to work together to defeat a mighty boss. In this case it's "Phantom Sigma". All players have equal combat power but the total amount of stars of their characters and weapons will be converted into attack buffs, allowing them to deal more damage to the boss. On top of this, the skills you have unlocked won't suffer any restriction like combat power does.

Each day you'll have 5 chances to challenge the raid boss, with more opportunities that can be bought using EM. In total you can buy five extra tries; the first three cost 20 EM each, the fourth try cost 50 EM and the last one 100 M.

These are the character and weapons that will dealt extra damage to Phantom Sigma:

Damage dealt +40%
  • Third Armor X
  • Ultimate Armor X
  • Glittering Spark

Damage dealt +20%
  • Tron Bonne
  • Cinnamon
  • Zero

Damage dealt +10%
  • X

Let's take a closer looks at the rewards. First we have the "contribution rewards" which you unlock as you deal damage to the boss. Then, we have the "ranking rewards" which will be delivered after the event ends. It's basically a competition against other players to see who does more total damage during the event.

"Phantom Sigma" has five phases. When all players in the server deal enough damage to him, he will be defeated and the next phase will start. Each phase has different rewards that will be delivered instantaneously to all players that participate in the event.

And lastly we have the "challenge rewards" that you will get every time time you fight "Phantom Sigma". The more damage you do, the more rewards you will get.

I found this fight particularly more enjoyable than the fight against "Wolf-Sigma" in the first Raid Boss event. They even gave "Phantom Sigma" an attack from Sigma's second form to make his move set less limited.

The music track, though, they didn't bother matching music to the event once again. That's disappointing. Let us know what you thought of the boss fight in the comments!

New levels for the
Jakob Orbital Elevator are available today. Levels 66 to 70 for the normal and hard mode with Overdrive Ostrich as the boss of the last level and levels 56 to 60 for the challenge mode with a double fight against Bit and Bospider at level 60.

By completing level 65 and 70 you will be getting some rewards like a small quantity of EM, Shock Absorbers and seven Weapon Memory Supply Box II.

Did you enjoy this mode? Let us know!

Iron Maiden Cinnamon is available to purchase from the shop for 1200 EM until October 25 at 15:59 (UTC+8) and later for 1600 EM. 

The skin provides a stat boost of: Attack + 32, HP + 64 and Defense +16.

Your eyes are not playing a trick on you, we went from free skins to "Yukata Pallette" costing 800 EM and now 1200 EM. We can argue that the reason is because is a skin for an S rank character but if you ask me? Is too expensive, let us know what do you think in the comments.


And talking about questionable decisions, the amount of tokens we can earn playing Co-op has been reduced. Previously, we could get 20 tokens for each stage played daily. Assuming you have unlocked up to stage 9-2 that is 360 token daily, over a week that's 2520 tokens.

With today's change, however, it's been boosted to 100 tokens for each stage you play but it's no longer daily. Instead, it's been changed to weekly, meaning you get around 1800 tokens a week.

In a way, it's not a bad deal in the sense that you don't have to grind stages daily... but you do get less tokens weekly. Some players agree with this change and others don't. Where do you stand?

And finally, if you are interested in some skill adjustments and the new items available in the shop, you can check them here.

Next week promises to be big for two reasons: the launch of the game in Japan and the newest event. Look forward to it!


  1. Dont you think it would've been a good idea to not limit the skins like this

  2. Would have expected Maidinator to be 800 for a period of time, like Palette.

  3. I live the new Sigma fight, it's a lot of fun. The new Jakob stages seemed a lot easier this time around, too.

    Iron Maiden is way too expensive, but I still bought it because I'm part of the problem.

  4. I'm not at all a fan of having to pay for skins, especially considering we just had a DiVE festival and most people are bound to be cleaned out of EM trying (and failing) to get the S-ranks characters they want.

  5. A skin more expensive than a gacha try? And with those drop rates? Seriously?
    I tried the Legends gacha 5 times to see if I could get Tron and only got 1 S rank (Ferham).
    The event ended with me having around 900 Elemetals, so afterwards I decided to try my luck on the Third Armor as I didn't expect to need them anytime soon, specially for a skin.
    For my surprise, I got 5 S ranks: 2 dupes, 1 weapon, 3rd Armor X, and Proto Man.
    So why waste it on a skin? It's better to use 1000 Elemetals on a gacha than wasting it on a skin (unless you like using a cute but weak healer). Even if it's only dupes, you can use the points to improve your characters.
    (Still, I hope they repeat it later, or else this will be the 1st skin I lose)

  6. Done with this game until it comes out in NA, and is restructured. I am curious to see how the Japanese version is handled...

  7. Big boots? I approve.
    Maid outfit? I greatly approve.
    Cinnamon? Ah… eh.

    I should really play through Command Mission, already… I bet she's awesome and I just don't know it yet.

  8. Iron Maiden? EXCELLENT!
    *plays air guitar*
    "That'll be 1,200 Element Metals."

  9. Fair enough to release that skin the week of a weapon banner rather than one where players would be spending their EM to try to get a character. (Even if it's a week between TAX and halloween.)
    Still, 1200 is a bit too much. Guess i'll get if i amasse enough EM before it's gone.
