Star Guardian bonds in Star Guardian 2022 Event
The Star Guardian bonds in this event allow players to learn more about a guardian - up close and personal! By navigating to the Guardian Stories section of the Another Sky page, you can see all the currently unlocked Star Guardians along with their Bond Levels. You will be able to click on the available champions and read their introduction story but if you want to learn more than that, you will have to forge a closer, stronger bond with that champion. It is also important to remember that these are stacking rewards.
Players can earn bonds by just playing the game. Bonuses can be earned by playing the champion you want to get closer to and by using the Star Guardian skin for your particular champion. You can earn up to 9 Bonds a game.
There are three levels in the Star Guardian bonds track of the mission. Level 1 unlocks after 5 bonds, Level 2 after 250 Bonds, and Level 3 after 500 Bonds.
