Ruan Mei is a 5-star Ice element character who follows the path of Harmony.


A sweet-tempered and elegant scholar. Member #81 of the Genius Society. An expert in the biological sciences. She earned Nous’ attention with her talent and terrifying perseverance, and began her research on the origin of life in a secret corner of the universe. For that, she was invited by Herta to collaborate with Screwllum and Stephen to develop the Simulated Universe. Secretly, she greatly enjoys traditional theater and desserts, and she is also very interested in embroidery.

Combat Role

Ruan Mei is a support character capable of increasing allies’ Weakness Break Efficiency, SPD, and All-Type RES PEN. At the same time, Ruan Mei can also deal additional Break DMG whenever any allies Weakness Break an enemy, causing the Weakness Broken enemies’ actions to be further delayed.

When these enemies attempt to recover from Weakness Break, Mark is triggered, extending the duration of their Weakness Break, delaying their action and dealing Ice DMG.

In Simulated Universe, when Ruan Mei has Silken Serenade, the team actively attacking enemies will always be regarded as attacking their Weakness to enter battle, and this attack can reduce all enemies’ Toughness regardless of Weakness types.

A candid and self-centered Intelligentsia Guild member, who often conceals his appearance with a strange plaster sculpture.

He seeks to distribute knowledge to the entire universe to cure the persistent disease named ignorance.

Delectable little critters zapping all over the space station? Is this a dream? These little cuties are happily bounding around all over the place and now the responsibility of looking after them has fallen on your shoulders.

The Simulated Universe will receive an expansion which adds the Path of Erudition. This event is very similar to the Swarm Disaster with its own mechanics, skill tree and other new stuff.

Another event, Virtual Scentventure will introduce variants of enemies that have different skills than the usuals you fight. A very hard, Despair mode, will become available here once you finish the basic mode of it.

The Department of Ecology’s “Unknown Lifeform Smell-Induced Perceptions and Hallucinations” special test has begun. You have been specially invited as a qualified tester… Wait, what’s with these strange fragrances?

Lynx will be a reward for clearing this mode for the first time.
