  1. Iwai isn’t available for some reason on Thursday Evening 11/3, won’t even show up grey out on the map or anything (I have him at Rank 5). Is his availability in November different?

    • I’ve just checked through the November Royal guide for November, apparently he’s available on Tuesdays during that month, though not on the 1st.
