Upgrade Arcade: February 2016
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:
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.
- A survey will be available for players level 30+ for (1) Arcade Token. One survey per server per account.
- Prestige Badge holders will receive an additional (2) Arcade Token via survey each week of the event.
- Arcade Tokens can also be purchased individually or as a bundle from the in-game shop or web store.
- 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 Mythic Drakenspire Depths weapon bundles (both Dark Lord's and Darken Lord's are available) that let you choose a weapon for your class. There's also the brand new Can Costume and Can Hat.
