Voting Gauntlet: Clash of the Claws starts Jan. 29, 11 PM PT. Train up the Hero you wish to support to get ready for the event. There’s also a Voting Gauntlet Log-In Bonus from which you can receive up to 13 Orbs.

Just before the Voting Gauntlet: Clash of the Claws event begins on Jan. 29, three beastly leaders will be available as part of a 5★ summoning focus. Your first summon on the focus won’t cost any orbs.
