Upgrade Arcade: June 2017

Upgrade Arcade is back starting on June 14! Get your tokens and upgrade the weapon to earn fantastic prizes. The higher you go the, the better the rewards including Tamed White Tiger Chest. Spinel Medals, and much more. Earn free tokens daily just by logging in!

- 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.

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 Eternal Hope Armor, Weapon  and Accessory Box, Omega Enchantment Stones, Tempering Solutions, Berdin's Lucky Stars, Abyssal Stars and much more. Prismatic Bubble is also available from the event!

 

- Login Rewards -

Also in during the duration of Upgrade Arcade, for Archdaevas, you will be rewarded with items everyday just for logging in! These items will be in a menu on the right and includes rewards like Spinel Fragments and other items. All you need to do it stay logged in for the amount of time required for each reward, and you can do this every day during the event.
