The return of Mirage Tower ~Troops from hell~ (蜃気楼の塔~地獄の軍勢~)
kue8e6000002n84w.jpg
    May 16th until May 30th, 2017, players at JRO will be having a chance to challenge “Mirage Tower” with new difficulty level called “Heaven or Hell (天獄級)” which requires adventurers to be at least Base Lv151.

    The word “return” was translated from “復刻” and is used because they held this event in 2012.

(There's also a chance to get new costumes)

Mirage Tower’s Rules

kue8e6000002n857.jpgkue8e6000002n869.jpg
- Several zones with different recruit time (調査協力者募集時間) and exploration time (調査時間).
(The source link has printed the detail about them. If you’d like to know, please click it.
I’m not gonna paste the detail about it because it’s too long and maybe boring for some readers)

- Each zone has a maximum number of 100 players.
(Don’t know if this is similar to the “raid system” in games like WoW ?)
- Any player who becomes “incapable of fight (戦闘不能)” will be immediately sent out. Thus, no resurrection is possible.

- Fight until the top floor of the tower.

Rewards

kue8e6000002n8ny.jpg
    Each floor passed, players get “Mirage Point (蜃気楼ポイント)”. These points can be traded at Natsumi (夏美) for rewards such as “A card from an old card album”, materials for several types of enchantment like “Seagod’s Anger”, “Bloody Coin”, Charleston Parts, etc. Splendid Treasure Box and more.

Steps

1. By talking to a “Guide (案内人)”, she gives a teleportation service to “Fruta Prohibida Assembly Hall (フルータプロイビーダ集会所)”.
* The left side is a large chamber where players can buy consumable goods or use many services for enchantments.
* While the right side is a chamber used for moving to a map in game world where “Mirage Tower” will appear.

(I miss you so much, old training ground maps (lol))

2. There will be 10 minutes period of recruitment. Each member must form a team, prepare for items and get ready.
(Recruitment time and exploration time must be carefully seen before entering the tower.)

3. For a number of floors passed, there will be a “Rest area” prepared for the players to refill their recovery items or repair equipments that have been broken.
(This further reduces the zeny inflation problem - author’s opinion)

Spoiler

    Each difficulty level has different entrance fee. By paying certain number of zeny, “death penaltywill be disabled inside the Mirage Tower.
Intermediate (中級) Level 1-89 : 10,000 Zeny
Advance (上級) Level 90-120 : 30,000 Zeny
Extreme (超級) Level 121-150 : 50,000 Zeny
Heaven or Hell (天獄級) Level 151-165 : 70,000 Zeny

Special Enchantment Services

    These services are available for a limited time. They guarantee a safe enchantment for players that even if the enchantment fails, player won’t lose the item but instead, delete all enchantments and reset its state back to the beginning (初期化)

Spoiler

 

Cautions
* There are some items / skills that are prohibited within this dungeon. There’s a table of them in the source link.
*Mirage Point” has a maximum number of 30,000. Player must be careful when receives reward.
* There’s a time limit of 1 hour and 30 minutes inside the Mirage Tower. When the time’s up, players will be automatically sent back to staff NPC.
* Any disconnection happens will cancel the exploration. No compensation at all.
* They state “don’t disturb or destroy the fun atmosphere of other players.”

I've been playing it for a week. Some thought popped up in my mind.

 

- 70,000 Zeny per run. (The hardest level) Pay to NPC.

- Every floors passed I got 50 points.

- 100 points can be traded for small box. This gives random item like "Temporal Crystal", "2 Red Temporal Crystal".

- 500 points can be traded for large box which gives rewards more than the 5 small boxes.

 

- If 100 players entered it, 7,000,000 zeny were will be subtracted from the system.

- If I'd like to get my zeny back, Temporal Crystal costs around 250k in the market. The red one costs 100k.

- I can sell these things to buyer shops. The zeny I get comes from other players. This means the number of zeny in the system doesn't increase.

- There are 4~5 runs possible in 1 day. (Can't remember the exact number, sorry) 7,000,000 x 4 = ...  ~28,000,000 Zeny are subtracted from the system everyday.

- All I've written above are just for the hardest difficulty level. How about other levels ?

 

Summary

This is quite a genius way they are trying to solve the zeny inflation problem on their server.

Why ?

Participants, like me for example, feel income is more than expense. So, it's worth trying. At the same time, number of zeny in the system is actually reduced.

 

___________________________________________________________

 

I've been seeing prices of many items in JRO rises and falls around this for over a year. It's They're quite cheap and easy to afford.

Off course, unless I got kicked out of server during run. That's worthless.

2017-05-26%2021%2055%2023%20edited_zpspt

Since 70,000 zeny must always be paid before entering, I assume this is really a zeny inflation problem solving anyway.

 

Names of boss monsters look like a literature. This nightmare guy's name is "暴君を懲らしめる者 (Tyrant punisher)"

There are more. JRO's GM team actually posted a guide of the hardest level almost a week ago in their blog.

(If you guess, you're right. I died many many times because I didn't know how to protect myself from their hellish skills - lol)

異端を憎む者 (Those who hate heresy - Minotaurus)

永劫の炎 (Eternal Flame - Lichtern)

(This guy repeatedly releases Meteor Storm in the whole room. Anyone without fire property protection will just die and kicked out of tower)

痛みを反す者 (Pain pay backer - This guy)

etc.

 

Lastly, Natsumi looks so beautiful as always.  :p_love:
