▍Azur Lane 5th Anniversary “The Fool’s Scales” Event
The special event The Fool’s Scales is scheduled to run from August 17 until August 30. As part of this event, the new shipgirls Iris Libre and Vichya Dominion will be featured, weaving the story of their future days.
The event is inspired by elegant palace dress designs, and it introduces five new shipgirls into the Construction Pool, including Battleship Clemenceau, Light Cruiser Guichen, Battleship Lyon, and Heavy Cruiser Suffren. These characters now have a higher acquisition rate in the limited Construction Pool.
In addition to these shipgirls, Commanders have the chance to obtain the Aircraft Carrier Painlevé through construction or event stage exchanges. Additional rewards include the Destroyer Kersaint and brand-new gear, the “Triple 152mm Mle 1930 Main Gun Mount T0,” available for redemption after clearing event stages.
A new Fate Simulation feature has been added for Chkalov, Prinz Rupprecht, and Harbin, bringing stronger PR ships and equipment to strengthen Commanders’ formations. Finally, the Retrofit shipgirl, West Virginia, has been made permanent in this update, aiding Commanders in powering up their fleet.
▍Azur Lane 5th Anniversary Multiple Event Rewards
As part of the 5th Anniversary, all Commanders stand a chance to reap a multitude of rewards through various in-game events. These rewards include a new skin for Kiev, furniture pieces, gear skins, a 5th Anniversary Invitation, and an exclusive portrait frame.
By logging into the game during the event period, Commanders will be gifted with two rental outfit vouchers applicable on a selection of stunning skins, including “Splendid Breeze” (L2D) for Clemenceau, Diving Under Blue Skies (L2D) for Enterprise, and Shimmering Triangle Wave (L2D) for Helena.
The celebration period heralds an array of new skins and in-game features. Yorktown will also receive a new oath skin. A variety of characters such as Clemenceau, Enterprise, Helena, and Painlevé, along with six other shipgirls, are ready to celebrate summer with new sportswear and swimsuit skins. A total of 10 rerun skins have returned to the shop, and 8 skins, including those for Sirius and Black Prince’s L2D, are now permanently available.
