TriviaEdit

  • This is xi's first song in Cytus.
  • This is the longest song in Chapter 3.
  • This was the first song to exceed 700 notes.
  • This is the first song that has a triple hold note.
  • This song was previously unlocked through Facebook or Twitter(1).
  • In the story mentioned in its BGA, Alcyone was married to her husband Ceyx, and often said that they were as blissful as the divine couple, Zeus and Hera. As gods never liked how human beings compared themselves to gods, Zeus threw a thunderbolt at Ceyx's ship, and after knowing about her husband's death, Alcyone also threw herself into the waters. Out of compassion, the gods changed them both into halcyon birds. Thus, the term "halcyon days" was born.
  • This song was awarded 1st place in BOF2010(2).
  • Near the end of the song, tap notes and slide notes form the Cycon of this song(3).
  • This song is a playable song in Groove Coaster, another rhythm game, prior to 7 September 2015. It's altered and shorter compared to the Cytus version. It uses the same cover art from Parousia.
  • This song is also playable in Sound Voltex, another rhythm game, from 25 August 2016 onwards. The cover art is from the BGA.

Helpful InfoEdit

FGO's QuickRun:
  • Welcome to your first xi song. Oh boy, is this beneath the depths of slow. Like what Wheaty said, don't spam. Not your best bet if you do so. If you really resort to spamming at times, study the chart from experts on YouTube. Heck, there is a 900k views Halcyon MM video by Shokoa on YouTube, find that one.

Ah, the halcyon days... Get reminded of those days when slow lines were your forte. Lots of cramps, and like Entrance, don't spam. As DSZ9 said, remember, you're not a machine gun. Take care of your timing, and perhaps refer to some Cytus YouTubers' videos.

Do you like tapping things exactly the right kind of quickly? "No!" Do you want to cram 701 notes into a slow scan line song? "No!" If you agree with one or both of these statements, you won't do well here. But you will like this song nevertheless.

If you're a beginner it somehow seems easier than those fast songs, right? Wrong. Being a machine gun is still an issue in this song, but it also goes off rhythm too. Yeah, deceiving (At least to me).

Extreme durability needed here. Successive overlapped notes and extreme note placements tests your fingers to the max.

This song is a champion. What can I say? It deserves the prize for the beat, the tune, the everything.

If you're like me and have mastered Area184 before attempting this fantastic sounding music, you might be able to understand quickly the chart here. For the 16 notes groups of death and doom, I wasn't going anywhere until I began to treat the zigzag-y lines of clicks as straight ones, tapping in the middle of the lines' general direction: then I mastered it at my second attempt doing that. Give it a try, it worked for me at last.

Truffly Tips:
  • Don't spam. The patterns here do make sense, you just have to know what you're doing. Know where each grouped note starts, where it ends, and what you're tackling afterwards. You'll need to develop plenty of stamina before tackling this one.
  • The ending is one that preys on weakened minds. Don't falter for a second; keep yourself as calm as possible. And don't forget about that final triple hold note.
  • I've advised this for several charts already, but studying gameplay of the patterns in this one is almost guaranteed to help you get a solid grasp of it.
