Battle System

A new deep dungeon, Heaven-on-High, has been added.

Heaven-on-High is an ever-changing dungeon whose architecture is never quite the same each time players enter the tower. All players will begin at level 61, and only by fighting the enemies within will they be able to gain the strength and experience needed to explore its heights.

Players who choose to leave and return later can continue playing from where they last saved. We challenge all who enter to make it to the last floor!
* Heaven-on-High uses separate save data from Palace of the Dead. Pomanders and aetherpool gear strength will not carry over from Palace of the Dead, and vice versa.

Disciple of War or Magic level 61
The Ruby Sea (X:6.2 Y:11.7)
Hamakaze
Players must first complete the main scenario quest "Tide Goes in, Imperials Go Out" and floor 50 of the Palace of the Dead.

Entering Heaven-on-High

Players can enter Heaven-on-High by speaking with Kyusei (X:21.4 Y:9.2) in Crick in the Ruby Sea. When entering as a party, only the party leader can start the instance. It can also be entered with a cross-world party.
* All party members must be in the Ruby Sea to enter Heaven-on-High.

Players who have cleared floor 30 of Heaven-on-High and the sidequest "On the Shoulders of Giants" will be given the option to start from floor 1 or floor 21 when creating a new save file. When starting from floor 21, players will be set to level 70 and their inventories will be cleared of pomanders.

Character Growth

Players will start at level 61 regardless of their current class or job level. By defeating enemies that appear in the dungeon, players will be able to gain EXP and level their characters up to 70. Your Heaven-on-High level is not directly related to your level outside of the dungeon.

Empyrean Aetherpool Gear

Players will be restricted to the use of an empyrean aetherpool arm and empyrean aetherpool armor when inside Heaven-on-High. In addition to gaining levels, players must enhance these items as they progress through the dungeon.

Note that empyrean aetherpool armor will take the appearance of your current gear upon entering the instance.
* Normal gear has no effect on your character's attributes inside Heaven-on-High. 
* Aetherpool gear strength will not carry over from Palace of the Dead.

Floor 31 and Beyond

While floors up to 30 are related to the story of Heaven-on-High, all floors after were created strictly as a challenge for players. For this reason, you cannot enter floors beyond 30 with a matched party. Furthermore, in addition to completing the sidequest "On the Shoulders of Giants," players must meet the following requirements to challenge these floors:

  • Start from floor 1 or floor 21 with a fixed party and clear up to floor 30.
  • Party KO count must be zero.

Save data with one or more party KOs cannot be used on floor 31 or higher.
* Please be advised that the party KO count will also increase in the event your party abandons the duty or logs out while inside the instance.

Pomanders

Players will, on occasion, obtain pomanders from treasure chests within Heaven-on-High. These items have various uses ranging from displaying the entire map of your current floor, to providing party members with beneficial effects. Up to three of each pomander can be held at any time. These items can be found in a shared inventory to be used by all party members.

* Some pomanders differ from those found in the Palace of the Dead.

Magicite

Magicite found in Heaven-on-High can only be used in the dungeon. There is a small chance of receiving magicite when defeating an enemy, or it may be found in silver coffers.

Up to three pieces of magicite can be held at once and are kept in a shared inventory.
Magicite cannot be taken outside of Heaven-on-High. When in a matched party, it cannot be used after the completion of a set of floors.

Magicite found in Heaven-on-High allows you to summon a primal, whose attack affects all enemies on the current floor.

Floor Effects

Players may trigger the following floor effects:

  • Status Effects
    Some floors may inflict detrimental or beneficial statuses on players.
  • Prohibited Magic or Special Actions
    Some floors may prohibit certain actions.
  • Floor Effect: Gloom
    Some floors may have strengthened enemies.
  • Hall of Fallacies
    Some floors are comprised of a single large room. There will be several Beacons of Passage but only one of them is a true beacon. If you attempt to activate one of the false beacons, it will trigger a trap before disappearing.

Helpful NPCs

Heaven-on-High contains NPCs that assist the party with a variety of buffs.

The Accursed Hoard

While exploring Heaven-on-High, players will, on occasion, discover hidden treasure known as the Accursed Hoard. While a pomander of intuition is in effect, an icon on the navigation map will indicate the presence of a piece of the Accursed Hoard.

Upon saving progress and exiting Heaven-on-High, players can take this treasure to the Confederate appraiser in Crick in the Ruby Sea (X:21.3 Y:9.2) to have it appraised and discover what lies within.

The following rewards will be given based on the player's level and progress.

Please note that by receiving an empyrean aetherpool grip, the strength of your empyrean aetherpool arm and armor used in Heaven-on-High will be reduced by 10.

Exchanging for Empyrean Aetherpool Weapons

Scoring

When challenging certain floors and when the entire party is KO'd, players will receive a score based on a number of factors such as highest floor reached and number of enemies slain. Separate scores for both solo and party play will be assigned after being defeated or clearing certain floors.

High scores can be confirmed by speaking with Kyusei in Crick in the Ruby Sea (X:21.4 Y:9.2).

These scores may also appear on the rankings page on the Lodestone. The rankings page will be updated daily, so we encourage you to brave the ever-changing corridors of the dungeon, and prove yourself the realm's greatest pathfinder!
