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:

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 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.

Prestige Pack Update

machine.png

Changes are coming to the Prestige Pack! Very soon, we'll be updating the Prestige Pack with new rewards and benefits, along with extending these rewards past 18 months. For those already subscribed to the Prestige Pack, your rewards will roll over directly in to the new system. That means no starting over at month 1.

Today, we're excited to talk a bit about what will be changing. 

Prestige Badges

With this update, Prestige Badges will be retired and instead players will now receive a Prestige Pass. The Pass is a consumable item that applies to your entire account. With the new Prestige Pass, you'll no longer have to choose which character you want to receive the rewards or purchase multiple Prestige Packs to reap the benefits on multiple characters.

Benefits (Good for 30 days)

  • *Bonus Instance Entries (identical to and does not stack with the Instance Entry Boost Pack)
  • *Earn Prestige Coins for being logged in
  • *Bonus Seige Rewards:
  • *Extra Medals
  • *15% bonus to GP earned via fortress seiges only
  • *Access to Special NPCs and quests

Prestige Coins

The rate at which Prestige Coins are earned will also be changing. 

  1. 30 Coins will be earned within 10 minutes of logging in.
  2. 20 Coins will be earned every hour for the first three hours after logging in.
  3. Coins can also be found by hunting monsters in the field and in instances.

As before, Prestige Coins can be redeemed for a variety of items, but the list has been completely revamped. By visiting the Prestige Society Vending Machine you can take your pick from exclusive costumes, mounts, pets, and other items.

Rewards and NPCs

Throughout Atreia, special NPCs belonging to the Prestige Society will be spawned that provide benefits to players with an active Prestige Pass. There are quests for characters level 10 and above that grant a variety of gear and other items, including the Prestige Wings.

The Buffatron 9000 is available to grant a 5% movement speed buff and a 10% drop increase buff for 24 hours.

buffatron.png

Because the prices are being scaled higher, all Prestige Coins currently in the world will be multiplied by 8.For example, if you currently have 40 Prestige Coins, those will be exchanged for 40 bundles of 8 Prestige Coins each (320 Coins total).

Monthly Bonus Rewards

We’re also making the monthly rewards more convenient for different play styles. Instead of receiving Ceramium Medals and Ancient Crowns, you'll be given a choice of items. The Medals and Crowns will still be available, just alongside a variety of items to choose from.

Because they are being moved to a quest reward, the 6-month Prestige Wing reward will be replaced by a brand new title, Prestigious Initiate. If you've previously received the Prestige Wings, the Prestigious Initiate title will be mailed to you within one week of the update.

If you have questions or concerns about the new Prestige Pack rewards, let us know on the forums.
