Tower of Trickery

Tower of Trickery

The Tower of Trickery can be found in Prontera by talking to Tricky Ghost (prontera,162,185) and requires a party of 2-4 players.

You have to complete several mini-games within 15 minutes. For each game finished, you are given 5 Halloween Coins per floor completed. The top three fastest parties to clear the tower are placed in the leaderboard and will receive exclusive rewards after the event is over. The same party cannot win more than once, however, so if the same group has made all the top 3 runs, the 4th and 5th parties will be rewarded instead.

Before starting a game in the Tower of Trickery, you will always be given a choice between the left or right portal. Each one has a different game, so if your party struggles with a specific one, merely skip it.

Everytime you complete the tower, you will gain a point in the Tricky Climb achievements along with 120 Halloween Coins.

The Trickster Realm

Trickster's Realm

In any dungeon of field map, you may find a Wandering Spirit which you need to kill. They will actually remain on the field as an NPC and talking to him will lead you to the Trickster's Realm.

The Trickster Realm is a small room with various monsters, their difficulty scales depending on your character's level. These all drop Halloween Coins on death and there's a 5 minutes time limit to clearing the room. You can freely re-enter after death but so can anyone else who sees the NPC, regardless of their affiliation with you.

When you reach level 175, the Wandering Spirit will open the Twisted Realm instead of the regular Trickster's Realm. You'll find harder monsters inside as well as a chance of having a mob that drops a Spirit shard.png Spirit Shard.

You can lower the difficulty of the Trickster's Realm by speaking with Loki and selecting Escape the Twisted Realm. Please note this will make the mobs easier, decrease your rewards and you will not be able to farm Spirit Shard either. You can revert this setting by speaking with Loki once more.

Town Invasion

Every now and then, a town will be invaded. The invasion progresses as follow:

  • You will get a 2-minute warning.
  • Mobs will appear throughout the indicated map, these will drop Halloween Coins. There will also be multiple Wandering Spirits spawning.
  • Another wave of monsters will spawn after a few minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, the Tricker's King will appear. Killing him will reward you with Halloween Coins if you are within its range. MVPer will receive a Costume Witch's Hat .
  • You have 20 minutes to kill this MVP.

Tips for the event!

This section will be dedicated to tips on how to play this event.

Where do I start?

You can follow this path for the Halloween event:

  • Start by doing the Mysterious Coffin quest.
  • Farm some Creepy Critters (these are found on any dungeon or field).
  • Farm the Trickster's Realm by killing Wandering Spirits.
  • Farm Spirit Shards for the Trickster's King.
  • Kill the Trickser's King to get rarer rewards.

Trickster's Realm

If you just want to farm Halloween Coins and you find that the mobs inside the Twisted Realm are too strong for you, speak with Loki and select Escape the Twisted Realm. This will make it much easier and you'll be able to farm at a better pace. If you are confused with the names, the Twisted Realm is the same as the Trickster's Realm, except that the mobs are harder (this is only for level 175 characters).
Note: You cannot farm Spirit Shards if you disable the Twisted Realm, you will have to enable it by speaking with Loki again.

Loki's Elixir

If you are level 175 and want to keep farming easily at this level, start by farming enough Halloween Coins by exchanging Organic Pumpkins to buy Loki's Elixir (100 ). This item heals you for 10k HP and it can be reused as many times as you want. There is a 5 seconds cooldown but it is enough to keep farming without having to heal yourself in town.

Multi-hit attacks

When killing plant type monsters, such as the Wandering Spirit (or even the Creepy Critters), it is much faster to use a class with multi-hit attacks. For example:

  • Ranger using a Falcon instead of a warg. The Falcon has a chance to trigger Blitz Beat which should be killing these mobs much faster.
  • Arch Bishop using Adoramus.
  • Flaming Petal on Oboro/Kagerou.

Smaller maps

Try to farm in smaller maps since these mobs will be easier to find than in big areas. Even if there are more players in the map, it will still be more effective. Such as example would be:

  • Eclage's Dungeon (any floor).
  • Amatsu Dungeon (floor 2).
  • Hidden Dungeon (second map, with the 'large' open field).
  • Payon Dungeon (any floor).

Use lower level characters

Since the mobs scale with your level, you may find it easier to farm the Trickster's Realm for Halloween Coins using a lower level character. Just make sure you have an AoE that can kill the mobs quickly enough otherwise you might be better off using a regular level 175 character.

Participate in the invasions

Even if you can't kill the MVP, as long as you participate and don't die when the MVP dies, you will be rewarded with a random amount of Halloween Coins. The mobs that spawn in the invaded town also drop Halloween Coins which you can kill if you want to farm but make sure you are near the MVP when it is about to die.

Trickster's Invasion

When the MVP spawns during town invasions, a red minimap marker will indicate where the MVP is located at. You do not have to search for the MVP.

SP regeneration

The Trickster's King instance has a big SP regeneration bonus, allowing you to spam skills freely. This is very handy for Arch Bishops since they are able to use Offertorium at all times (Magnificat being useless in there).
