Q: I have a quest that asks me to "complete 1 limit fusion." I went to the limit break tab of my counter and after reaching the limit break, a star has been added. However, the quest did not get completed. Why is that?

Limit Fusion and Limit Break are two different things. Limit breaking involves unlocking up to 6 stars (for SSR units) by using APT cores, S-APT cores, and credits, while Limit fusion is another type of limit break that surpasses the limit break and the base maximum level of 100. The Limit Fusion will increase the maximum level of a Counter by 2 per limit fusion and requires fusion cores and credits. To know more about the difference regarding Limit Break and Limit Fusion, you can check the game guides by clicking on 'Operation' and then on '?'. (Example: If Xiao Lin has a max. of 6 stars and a current level of 100, once you hit limit fusion, her maximum level will be changed to 102.)
