Promotion Abilities

Promotion Abilities / 育成アビリティ, otherwise known as Nurture Abilities or Traits, are abilities that you can buy and then freely give or remove to flower knights. They were introduced following the 26th December 2016 update. You can get to the Promotion Abilities page from the Composition or Character Validation tabs of the Character Management page. A button at the bottom-left of the screen labeled Attach Promotion Ability / 育成アビリティ装着 or Acquire Promotion Ability / 育成アビリティ習得 will take you to the Promotion Abilities page.

As of Sep 2, 2019, Promotion Abilities were removed from the game and replaced by Flower Memories. At the same time, Sources of Ability Nurturing were replaced by Proofs of Pest Subjugation.

Available Promotion Abilities

For a description for the currencies, see the Shop's Currency subsection. You only need to buy an ability once in order to equip it on as many flower knights as you want.

Equipping Promotion Abilities

Ability Equip Tab

In the Ability Equip / アビリティ装着 tab, you can equip flower knights with abilities you've bought. Equipped abilities are stored for a flower knight on a per-set basis, so the same girl could have one ability in a certain set and a different ability in another. The following interface elements are available.
  • Your sets are selectable from the upper-left.
  • The Whaleship sets can be accessed with the red button labeled Whaleship Composition Ability Equip / クジラ艇編成アビリティ装着.
  • The Character Composition page can be returned to using the red button labeled To Character Composition / キャラ編成へ.

Ability Strengthening

Introduced on 30th January 2017 update, Ability Strengthening / アビリティ強化 is the process of spending Sources of Ability Nurturing / アビ育成の源 to level up Promotion Abilities. The Ability Strengthening tab is the third tab from the left.

  • The sources can be obtained from subjugations.
  • Gained levels are character-specific and not carried over to other knight girls. For example, upgrading the Provocation ability on Saffron wold only level up ability for her only and is not leveled up for any other knight you have.
