Cursed Waves

Introduction

Cursed Waves is a permanent roguelite game mode added during Across the Ruined Sea. This mode is continuously updated every patch with new rewards, characters, nodes, and story endings until Sands of Wrath, during which the fifth and final ending, Reader, is added.
In Cursed Waves, the player will progress through multiple nodes that feature story and combat encounters. Throughout their journey, the player must build a team and collect Artifacts that grant various mode-exclusive buffs to help them reach the ending.

Starting Out

Difficulty Levels

For each run of Cursed Waves, the player must begin with choosing a difficulty level. Once chosen, the difficulty level cannot be changed until the end of the current run.
Difficulty Level Downfall Crystal and
Curse-Dispelling Chapter Multiplier
Consciousness Stability Timer Notes
Rising Tide (Normal) x1 300s -
Surging Waves (Hard) x2 120s -
Abyssal Torrent (Nightmare) x2.5 90s Recommended Minimum BP: 7,500
  • Consciousness Stability: In Battle Stages, enemies will be enhanced after a set amount of time.

Extra Artifact

If the player reached Chapter 3 in their previous run regardless of the outcome, they will be presented with 3 random Artifacts from which they can choose one to aid them in their upcoming run.

Survey Team

After choosing a difficulty level, the player must then choose a Survey Team. Each Survey Team grants a different set of buffs.
Survey Team Name Effects
Tide Seeker Consciousness will stable for 30 seconds longer in the node.
Scavenger Has additional Biomimetic Blood x 2 and Tinbread Cookie x 8 at the beginning of the game.
Traveling Troupe Recruitment Refresh Attempts +1. Slightly increases the chance of recruiting S-Rank Omniframes.
Survival Expert Immediately gives a random Artifact. Gives another random Artifact every two chapters.
Expedition Team Each battle node cleared will increase all members’ Extra DMG Bonus by 5%.
Curse Queller Doubles the Artifact Box rewards in Hard Battles.

Starting Character

After choosing a Survey Team, the player is presented with Invitations of all five elements: Physical, Fire, Ice, Lightning, and Dark. A randomly chosen element will have its Invitation upgraded to Level 2, which guarantees that at least one S-Rank character will appear every time the player refreshes the recruitment lineup. The player must choose one of the elemental Invitations, from which they will recruit one starting character of their choice. Players can acquire additional Invitations to build their team by clearing nodes during the run.

Crimson Insight

Crimson Insight is a feature added in Wintry Shackles. Crimson Insight can be activated by entering the Event stage “The Forbidden Church” in Chapter 1 or 2, and choosing the option “Break through the blockade to investigate the truth”.
This will have three main effects:
  • The player will be able to perceive Crimson Insight. This is a required condition for making certain choices in Event Nodes.
  • Crimson Insight value can now be accumulated during the current run.
  • Crimson Insight values are divided into four levels. Activating Crimson Insight in “The Forbidden Church” node in Chapter 1 or 2 will initially grant 5 Crimson Insight value (level 1).
The maximum value of Crimson Insight is 100; the highest level is 4. Higher levels increase the chance of extra Artifacts dropping at the end of a battle and S-Rank characters appearing in summons. At the same time, enemies will become significantly stronger.
Crimson Insight value can be increased by completing certain battle and event nodes. Nodes that increase the value will be marked with a red eye icon.
  • The “The Other Round Table” Event Node will appear in Chapter 3.

Assimilation

Upon activating Crimson Insight in Chapter 1 or 2, the “The Other Round Table” node will appear in Chapter 3.
Choosing the option “Accept Assimilation” here will increase the Star Level of a character of the player’s choice by 1.
In addition, Bond Level 5 for the element that corresponds to the Rejected character will be unlocked. This allows a character’s Star Level to reach 3, which is impossible through regular means (i.e. summoning them multiple times).
Make sure the character who will undergo Assimilation is already at Star Level 2 before entering this node. Choosing a character whose Star Level is at 1 to undergo Assimilation will increase their Star Level to 2; a chance to undergo Assimilation is available only once every run, and thus it will result in never being able to upgrade a character to Star Level 3 during the current run.
Activating Crimson Insight in Chapter 1 or 2, and having a character undergo Assimilation are prerequisites for Ending 4 and 5.

Team Building

Character Recruitment

In Cursed Waves, every character in the game, with the exception of collaboration characters, can be recruited using Invitations. In future versions, the lineup of available characters will include up to Lamia: Lost Lullaby; characters from Watanabe: Epitaph and onwards will not be added to the Cursed Waves recruitment pool.
Characters the player has not yet acquired via R&D (gacha) in the main game are available as trial characters. The trial characters will be at Level 80, Ultima Awakened, and equipped with Memories and their 6-Star Signature Weapon; however, Leap upgrades will not be available.
Every character can be recruited up to twice using Invitations. When a character is recruited for the first time, they will be at Star level 1. For non-trial characters, their stats, skill levels, equipment, etc. will match that of the player’s own characters in the main game. Summoning a character for the second time increases their Star level to 2, which will greatly enhance their stats.
Characters have an increased chance to appear from Invitations during their debut patch.


Team Building Tips

Optimal elemental team compositions introduced in the Team Comps page can help the player get through the higher difficulties of the mode more efficiently.
In addition, powerful Bond effects exclusive to this mode allows the player to tackle challenges even when Invitation RNG prevents them from assembling a perfect "meta" team. Always keep an eye on bond synergy when recruiting characters—since characters not in the active party still counts towards activating Bond effects, it may sometimes be beneficial to recruit weaker and/or off-element characters to trigger the buffs.

Noteworthy Bonds

  • Pure Mercy: This Bond allows Support and Amplifier Constructs to contribute significant DPS while retaining their healing capabilities. It is especially useful when using the Physical (with Liv: Luminance) or Fire (with Liv: Empyrea) team.
  • Fighter's Wings: At higher levels, this is a powerful defensive bond that greatly enhances survivability while triggering counterattacks. It is especially useful when attempting the higher difficulties and/or under the effect of Crimson Insight.
  • Little League: This Bond provides various useful buffs in exchange for having to preserve Tinbread Cookies. The Signature Energy recovery effect is particularly notable—stacking multiple Signature Energy recovery buffs from Bonds and Artifacts enables characters to perform their Signature Move infinitely, leading to an easy win.
  • Final Judgement: The highest level of this Bond instantly kills any enemy under certain HP threshold. This effect also applies to bosses.
  • Fortress: This is another powerful defensive Bond, granting Shield and invincibility. It has great synergy with Fighter's Wings, since Chrome: Glory is a part of both Bonds.


Bonds

Remember to put in the red tags.

Bonds are a series of powerful buffs exclusive to the Cursed Waves mode. Bonds can be activated by recruiting certain combinations of characters. There are three types of Bonds: Fate’s Impulse, Forces Unition, and Spectral Nexus. Characters do not have to be in the active party to trigger Bond effects.

Fate’s Impulse

The Fate’s Impulse level can be upgraded by recruiting characters of the same element. The level (“Phase”) of each elemental category of Fate’s Impulse is decided by the combined Star levels of all the recruited characters in the element.
