To ease the limited edition doll looting process, the game introduced a form of "guarantee" system to the grinding process. In addition to have a chance at getting the desired dolls from specific enemy and the battle conclusion, players also gain another currency, with said currency, players can exchange all the limited edition dolls available in the event. Currency exchange shop can be found on the top tab of the Kalina's store. Additionally, there is NO LIMIT to how many medals you can obtain.
Defeating enemies/concluding battles that drops 3* and 4* rarity dolls will yield x1 Nova Medal, while defeating enemies/concluding battles that drops 5* rarity dolls will yield x1 Platinum Medal. Medal cost for dolls will be dependant on the dolls rarity, 5* Rarity dolls will require Platinum Medals while 4* and 3* Rarity dolls will require Nova Medals.
