Come one, come all, to the Upgrade Arcade! Try your luck at prizes by upgrading an on-screen weapon to the next level. At certain Upgrade Levels, you will unlock different prizes varying from Manastones to the exclusive Sleek Hovercycle mount!  Step right up! Don’t be shy – we’ll even give you a few free tries!

- How to Play -

The Upgrade Arcade can be accessed by clicking the smiling Shugo icon on the lower right corner of your screen. Use this icon to play, browse the prize list, or check out the Help guide.

To play, you’ll need an Arcade Token. One Arcade Token is consumed each time you begin playing at level 1, and will last until you claim a prize. This means it’s possible for you to get to Upgrade Level 8 on one token!

Click Play to start the mini-game and you'll see the weapon on the screen change before you. Subsequently by clicking Play, you will continue to upgrade the weapon and the Upgrade Level. There is a chance to fail at each upgrade level so play wisely!If you want to claim your prize, click Reward and a random item from the tier's prize list will be placed in your inventory.

If your upgrade fails at Upgrade Level 6 or higher, you have two choices. You can claim your level 1 prize, or you can click the Resume option to spend two tokens and regain your place! The Resume icon lights up to let you know it can be used, but can only be used once per play.

As you play the Upgrade Arcade, you will notice the Frenzy Meter filling up. Every token you use to play or resume will fill up the bar. Once the bar is full, Frenzy Mode begins and you have 90 seconds of boosted upgrade chances and additional Frenzy Rewards! Click away!

If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do the base Artifacts do? How do we use them?
  • Each base has two artifacts under the protection of two guardians. Take down the guardians and the artifact is yours. These particular artifacts do not require any stones for activation. After claiming the artifact, it will take a few moments to charge. These artifacts are powerful but their use is limited.
  •  
  • The Artifacts are:
  • Mirage Dance - Deals continual damage inside the fortress
  • Chaos Wind - Deals damage around the fortress and reduces flight time.
  •  
  • By using these powerful artifacts you can impact the outcome of the siege. Once activated, the artifacts cannot be used again for a while so timing their usage will be important.

 

  • Can we use other artifacts in the area?
  • The only artifacts available to you and your faction are the ones near the base you spawn in. You can capture other artifacts in other bases in the area, but you will not be able to use them.

Rewards for Sunday's siege beta participation and previous participation will be delivered via in-game mail the following Wednesday after the maintenance. With your help and feedback, we'll be making changes and adjustments to Panesterra and opening additional inter-server content soon!

See you Sunday!
