▍Arknights Return to Mist Introduction
Return to Mist is finally here, and the Arknights keeping this story chapter fresh with new mechanics and gimmicks, this time in the Twigs That Crave mechanic and Allerdale’s guard.
During these story stages, certain enemies called Twigs that Crave will appear,, totems that deal Necrosis damage around it when their HP is below 50%. If your operators take enough Necrosis damage they become silenced, and take continuous arts damage, making this a deadly debuff you want to get rid of with certain healer operators.
To combat this you will also have Allederdal’e guards, special deployable that can give surrounding allies a shield that can absorb up to 1,000 damage.
Arknights has also introduced many more tough enemies to deal with, each with unique gimmicks you’ll have to account for as part of your strategy, including the deadly Londinium Mobile Defense Artillery.
