Shugo Kingdom Adventure: The Secret of the Shugo

shugo_detail.jpg

The Shugo Kingdom Adventure takes players to a special instance, the Shugo Imperial Tomb, which is made up of 3 stages. Once inside, a powerful magic spell transforms you into a Shugo, and your gear and stats (other than run speed from your boots) do not matter. You will be given special skills that deal regulated damage, putting all Daevas on equal footing. For each stage, you must protect the towers long enough to lure out the boss. Defeating bosses provides you the keys and entry passes you need to enter the various treasure vaults. Losing a stage will not make you fail the instance, but it will prevent you from earning all the keys you need to unlock the reward chests at the end!

Upgrade Arcade: February 2016

03182015_Upgrade-Arcade-Returns_detailpage.jpg

Come one, come all, to the Upgrade Arcade! Try your luck by upgrading an on-screen weapon to the next level.  At certain Upgrade Levels, you will unlock different prizes including Stigma Bundles, Aether Glider wings, and the all-new Quick Frillneck mount!  Step right up! Don’t be shy – we’ll even give you a free try!

- 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.

For this edition of the Upgrade Arcade, we're also unveiling a brand new UI:

upgrade.png

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.

- Where to Get Arcade Tokens -

There are a few ways for you to get tokens for the Upgrade Arcade.

  1. A survey will be available for players level 30+ for (1) Arcade Token. One survey per server per account.
  2. Prestige Badge holders will receive an additional (2) Arcade Token via survey each week of the event.

- 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.
