Upgrade Arcade: November 2017

03182015_Upgrade-Arcade-Returns_detailpage.jpg

The Upgrade Arcade has returned until December 6. Level up the onscreen weapon to power up your rewards. The new Panda Power Wheels Box and Dark Wings Skin are up for grabs this time around so grab your tokens and win!

- 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!

Once the Frezy Meter is full, you'll fill one of the stars at the top and when all four are filled you'll instantly receive a prize from the highest prize tier.

- Rewards -

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. 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. Keep in mind that if your upgrade fails and you do not resume playing, through choice or lack of tokens, you will only get a prize from Upgrade Level 1.

Rewards available include Harvester Armor, Weapon  and Accessory Box, Omega Enchantment Stones, Tempering Solutions, Berdin's Lucky Stars, Miinuim and much more. Panda Power Wheels and Dark Wings are also available from the event!

 

The Upgrade Arcade awaits you! Hurry before it's too late. Upgrade Arcade will end on December 6.


Kumuki's Cave Returns

04172017-AN-Kumukis-DetailPage.jpg

The Porguses have been captured by the Kumiki yet again, and again! This special Kumuki instance will have different rewards and will come and go every week. Have a look below for the schedule. 


- How To Participate -

In the Capital Cities you’ll find Gretel the Mischievous looking for the assistance of any level 46+Daeva willing to help. She has a carriage that will send you to the Kumuki Cave where Hansel the Troublemaker is waiting to tell you how you can help.

Once inside, Hansel will inform you that the Porguses are being held in cages at the end of the cave, and you only have 15 minutes before it’s dinner time! Opening the gate will transform you into a Shabby Kumuki which also grants two special abilities. You can also grab a Shabby Kumuki Transformation Scroll from the Supplies Box if you need it. 


Fear Grenade

Causes the target to be feared and disappear.

Stink Bomb
04182017-kumuki-stink-bomb.png
Causes a group of Kumukis to be temporarily paralyzed.
 

You’ll need to use these abilities to progress through the cave in a stealthy manner avoiding the vision the Kumukis have. Also available are objects you can use to blend in so you won’t be detected. If you’re careless and are detected too many times, the butcher will be alerted and kill the Porguses before you get there.

As you make your way through the cave, you’ll need to keep an eye out for four Key Chests, which contain the keys required to save the Porguses. Also hidden in the cave is a Suspicious Box which has the key to open the Kumuki Crate at the end.

Looking for a bit of experience while saving the Porguses? Three Nutritious Ginseng can be found in the cave, killing them will grant EXP so be sure to end their fleshy rooted lives if you have time! You can also choose to let the helpless Porguses die and kill the Kumukis for additional EXP.

For each Porgus you save you’ll earn one Poppy’s Gift Bundle (but only if you talk to them after opening the cage door), and an additional one if you open the Kumuki Crate. Each Poppy’s Gift Bundle will yield a random reward from the list below. 

On the store you’ll be able to purchase Bonus Entry Scrolls to go as many times as you wish!
