This event uses Rays' standard Event Shop format. What this means is after clearing the quest, you can use dedicated farming quests at the bottom of the list (costing 40 AP and 80 AP) to farm for currency, which you'll then use in the event shop. The hardest, yet most rewarding quest is at the very bottom of the quest list. There's two types of currency: a "low tier" currency and a "high tier" currency, and you'll get more of one or the other depending on what characters you use farming the quest, as well as what artes they have equipped.

Seles' Mirrage Shard. Available for 4000, 40000 and 80000 Berets. Mirrage Shards increase the maximum character level, and are rarer to come by for specific characters once their event ends.
