and didn't see any Hearts from the shop or lottery. Maybe just some misinformation.
Foreign Hearts from upcoming Nero event?
I've been reading people say that hearts of the foreign god will be available from the lottery boxes in the upcoming nero event but the wiki page doesn't show any heart being available in said boxes. Can anyone confirm whether or not hearts will be available then as that will determine my apple use during this summer event?
You get them as clear reward for one of the exhibition(high difficulty) matches but that's an 1AP quest. I doubt you are gonna get Hearts/Scales or any of those from lotteries.
The scales and hearts only drop during the exhibition nodes (which are very difficult). I recommend that you spend a few apples this event, of you haven't cleared the rarer drops in the shop.
