Dredgion Defense and Arena of Tenacity Preview

02152017-DregdionDefenseConcept.jpg

Dredgion Defense

With the reawakening of the Tower of Eternity, the Aetheric field around Atreia has started to weaken. From her slumber deep within the Abyss, Ereshkigal sensed this weakness, and has dispatched an elite fleet of Dredgions to the capital cities in an act unheard of since before the Cataclysm. Work together with your fellow Daevas to protect your home!

Every Sunday after the update, Archdaevas will be able to queue for the Dredgion Defense for Sanctum and Pandemonium. The first 384 players to queue will be teleported into the starting area in their faction’s capital city. Regardless if the Dredgion Defense is full or not, the instance will start after a few minutes. The goal of the Defense is to earn as many points as possible by stopping the invading forces.

Players must work together and focus on several objectives simultaneously to defend their city. Ranks are awarded after defeating the boss, Zedas, followed by a direct assault on the Dredgion flagship for extra rewards. The difficulty of this final phase is determined by your score in the defense. Successful defenses will awards all players that participated in the instance with materials, consumables, and new equipment.

Arena of Tenacity

Archdaevas can enter the Arena of Tenacity, a new tournament-format Arena. Up to 32 players can join each instance of the Arena, and will be put head-to-head in a 1v1, single-elimination tournament (multiple tournaments can run simultaneously). Players will be moved to the Crucible of Tenacity first, and will be automatically seeded for matches. In the Crucible, there are various NPCs and players can also spectate other matches while waiting for your turn. Spectator mode is only available from within the instance. Victory allows you to continue to fight the next opponent, and defeat will eject you from the Arena.

Each match excluding the finals is a timed best-of-three contest, with the first player to score two points moving to the next round. The finals match is a best-of-five, where the first to three points wins. Points are earned by killing your opponent, but if the time limit runs out while the players are tied in points, a two minute sudden death round will begin. If the players are both still alive after that, then the player who dealt more damage will win. Rewards will be given based on how far you advance in the tournament, with the winner receiving the most fabulous prizes!

The Arena of Tenacity will have seasons lasting for nine weeks, followed by a one week break. Every Arena of Tenacity tournament you participate in will count towards your ranking for the season, and when the season ends you will be given rewards of Kinah, AP, and GP based on your final placement.

The Mysterious Enchanter Event

170214_AN_Mysterious_Enchanter_DetailPage_573x203.jpg

Luxrinerk is the most fabulous shugo around and she has the wares to prove it. For a low kinah price, you can own one or more of Luxrinerk's items, but don’t be fooled; to de-mystify Luxrinerk’s wares you must enchant them to a required enchantment level. For the duration of the event, enchant these mysterious mystic items to receive the permanent version!

 

- How to Participate -

Purchase an armor, weapon, and/or accessory box from Luxrinerk. Luxrinerk can be found in both capital cities, Pandaemonium and Sactum. Armor and weapons from Luxrinerk are pre-enchanted to level 10. You can “rent” the equipment from her for the duration of the event, or go for the best by enchanting the armor and weapon to +15 or +18, +5 or +7 for accessories. At the end of the event, all items not enchanted to the minimum level required for an exchange will return to the Abyss with Luxrinerk!

During the event period, enchanting armor and weapons will also receive the benefit of only losing one enchantment level should the enchantment fail. This only applies to enchanting gear with enchantment stones; tempering is unaffected. Archdaeva gear is also unaffected.

The enchantment buff only applies to enchanting before max level. Any enchanting failure after maximum level is unaffected. Omega Enchantment stones already have this effect and do not receive any additional benefits.

Any items sucessfully enchanted to the required enchantment level will be converted during the next maintenance. That means no waiting around for the event to end to receive the real item!

 

- Rewards -

Successfully enchanting the items to the required enchantment levels listed in the table above will be exchanged for the listed item. For the first exchange (2/22), only items in the private warehouse will be swapped over for the exchanged version. If you're in the process of enchanting, you do not have to worry about having your mystic item exchanged if you were not ready. For the second and last exchange of the event (3/1), all outstanding items will be exchanged if the enchanting criteria were met or removed if the criteria was not met.

 

The Mysterious Enchanter event ends on March 1, 2017. Enchant your mystic items today!


Kromede's Revenge Event

It is said that there is still treasure hidden in the Fire Temple for Daevas that are brave enough to explore it. Talk to Annaerunerk to follow the three adventurers into the Smoldering Fire Temple to see which treasurers and dangers await you.
 

- How to Participate -

In the capital cities of Pandaemonium and Sanctum, you can find Annaerunerk willing to transport you and your party (max of three players total) to the Smoldering Fire Temple for levels 40+. The event instance is available for free once per day and you can unlock additional entries with the Smoldering Fire Temple Bonus Entry Scrolls on the store. When you enter the instance, you will find three adventurers named Irish, Shine, and Stomper. Each adventurer have unique abilities that can only be used in the instance so be sure to decide among your party who will choose who. At the beginning of the instance you will also find a Potion Chest that will give you consumables you can use during your exploration. 

Proceed through the Smoldering Fire Temple, then defeat as many waves of monsters including the boss, Kromede, as you can in the allotted time for points. After eight minutes, you will be given a grade based on your group’s points which will determine how many Smoldering Fire Temple Treasure Chest Keys you obtain. You can use the one key to open the Elegant Treasure Chest or use three keys to open Dazzling Treasure Chest. You have a chance of receiving an Elite Treasure Chest from both the Dazzling and Elegant Chests. Combine it with an Elite Treasure Key, which is available from the store for even greater prizes! Elite Treasure Keys can also be used to open the Elegant Treasure Chest and the Dazzling Treasure Chest. Treasure Chests do not disappear when you leave the instance, however the Smoldering Fire Temple Treasure Chest Keys you obtain will!
