The map features various icons, and we will talk about them one by one. The first icon, which looks like a tower, is the main teleport point. Unlocking this uncovers a part of the map.
The second icon is another teleport waypoint, but unlocking this does not uncover a part of the map. So it is best to get the main teleport waypoint to open all of the maps.
Next, we have these fire hydrant-looking icons on the map. They are ability training sessions that have mini-games you can participate in. They are open every day.
The fourth icon is the one that looks like a house. These are areas that have mobs and chests that unlock after defeating them.
These are also the same as the fourth icon. The gray color indicates you’ve already cleared the area. If it has a bar like in the picture on top, it means you still have things that you can get in the area.
The fifth icon is these triangle-shaped towers. They are the one-time completion dungeons in the game, and can only be played solo.
The next is the World Boss icon. This gives out good loot; it even has a chance to drop SSR chips and SSR weapons.
