Endless Tower is an instance dungeon that challenges players to clear 100 floors full of monsters, increasing in difficulty, with boss monsters on every 5th floor. If the party reaches the top, they must first defeat Entweihen Crothen, and only then can they enter the lair of the demon lord Naght Sieger. Check out our Endless Tower wiki article for more details.
To celebrate Earth Day (coming up on Saturday, 22 April) we will have an additional objective. It has been reported that noxious fumes have been building up in the tower, and it could spread across the ocean to other lands if not neutralized soon. Imagine the whole world being covered in smog! If you've experienced the air in Einbroch, you'll know why this pollution must be stopped. If we are successful, I will throw in a bonus prize!
Finnian and his assistant(s) will provide a few helpful buffs to aid the brave adventurers in their race to the top. Party wipe? No problem. Finnian can revive the party. However, for every 2 revives the the prize category will drop (more on this later). If the party clears the Endless Tower quickly and certain qualifications are met, which will be discussed before the event starts, they may contend for the JellyRO Endless Tower World Record! The current record for ET is: 1 hour 0 minutes 35 seconds 54 milliseconds. A party that manages to break the record has a chance to win a bonus Super prize.
Every 25th floor reached earns the party a reward from the next highest prize category, and these prizes are cumulative. Floor 25 is a Small prize, floor 50 is a Medium prize, floor 75 is Large, and technically the next reward would be at floor 100, but in order to obtain the Super prize the party must defeat the final boss after that floor. The party will also earn a Jellybean for each hour (rounded up), and 1 Auro per floor passed, up to 100. Even if you dropped one prize category for revives, beating the record will still earn you a Super prize. You can learn more about prize categories here.
The event will start promptly at 8pm CDT (UTC -5). Get your gear and supplies ready ahead of time. Depending on what character classes/jobs show up, it may not be ideal to bring your main, so if you have a viable alt, make sure they can be ready in a couple minutes. Once the event starts you won't be allowed to swap your characters, and each player can only bring one character, so choose wisely! Even if you normally wouldn't attempt Endless Tower, but your character is at least level 69 (party exp share range is +/- 30), you are welcome to tag along as long as there are at least 4 characters over level 90 in the party.
It can be helpful to coordinate with other players. Hop on JellyRO Discord (invite link) and let people know in the #events channel which class you plan to bring.
I hope to see many of you at the event. I also have an important announcement that I will share just before we start! ?
