    Hello.

    I was wondering how many units have iSBB (Infinite Super Brave Bursts) and batch names.

    Every rare summon, there will be a notice saying "[Insert Name]'s batch onwards]". I was wondering what that meant.

    Thank you in advance
    - Ciara

    Assuming we're just talking about Omni units - offhand, :fire:Arus (Single Target), :water:Tazer (ST), :dark:Toki (ST), :earth:Faelan (Area of Effect), :earth:Zeruiah (AOE), :thunder:Rayla (AOE). Possibly others, I'm not super familiar with some of the newer releases.

    Edit: and :dark:Shion of course, herp derp

    Batch names... units are broadly speaking released in groups of six, sometimes fewer. A full batch has a :fire:Fire, :water:Water, :earth:Earth, :thunder:Thunder, :light:Light and :dark:Dark unit, and you'd note that the game inventory by default sorts units in this order.

    Therefore one way to refer to a batch is simply by the name of the fire unit. Therefore :fire:Alpha batch marked the point where all releases going forward were at least 7*, :fire:Kulyuk batch was the point where Omni units started to be introduced (but they were still releasing max 7* units).

    They started doing partial smaller batches after that, e.g. :fire:Rengaku batch only had the three units, and it's only really :fire:Lyonesse batch where they got back to putting out six Omni units in each element. Note that the full six unit batches do tend to hit the summon gate in half-batch chunks, e.g. three new releases at a time.

    Global Exclusive batches tend to be strung out even further, as in :fire:Adriesta is released as a single unit, then :light:Gabriela some time later, and so on.

    The other way batches are referred to is by whatever lore theme the batch has, e.g. the :fire:Adriesta batch is referred to as Adriesta batch, but it can also be referred to as the "Galardhon Batch" as they tie together in the Galardhon storyline. However not all of the batches have a distinct name/theme, or even if they do it may not be well known, which is why you still see the unit-based naming.

    It is also common for the community to refer to batches by what's the notable pull from the batch, rather than the fire unit, e.g. you will see people talking about :light:Regil batch because Regil is the rock star unit in that group... but this isn't official.
