Infinite Hunting Grounds, Dungeons, and the Battlefield
What's the best way to relieve all that pent-up stress AND level up your character?
Why, the Battlefield of course!
Time to knock some heads... To the Battlefield we go!
* Enter the Battlefield via the Smart Matching interface (hotkey: H). If there's one thing MMORPG gamers can't wait to sink their teeth into, it's the Battlefield. But to win on the Battlefield, you've got to BECOME the Battlefield, so let's get down to the nitty-gritty and see what it's all about.
Entering this colosseum of chaos is as easy as 1-2-3. Simply open the Smart Matching interface and request to be matched—the same as any dungeon! You can open the Smart Matching interface by pressing the H key and clicking on "PvP".
You'll notice there are two different battlefields —Mettle's Theater and Tribulation's Vale. In only a matter of seconds, you'll find yourself whisked away to battle! Upon entering a Battlefield, you'll probably notice the crowd of NPCs awaiting your arrival. Don't panic! This isn't some posse set on giving you the what-for—they're merchants ready to sell you all kinds of powerful equipment.
Trade your hard-earned Hero Badges gained on the Battlefield for gear that's sure to give any opponent a run for their money. With its high PvP Defense and Attack stats, this gear is a must-have if you want to come out on top.
One of the most important aspects to remember when it comes to PvP is teamwork. Thankfully, it's easy to check up on your fellow teammates even during the most anarchic of battles—simply click the 'See Score' button at the bottom of your screen, or press Alt+S.
Remember, your own team will always appear on the left side of the screen.
First let's look at Mettle's Theater—a war-torn stage home to tragedies that would daunt even Shakespeare!
Mettle's Theater is all about that base — the longer your team occupies various bases on the map, the higher your chances of winning.
Watch out, though, because things are never that simple! Hellfire Bruiser Hephestus, the living manifestation of hell itself, appears periodically in Watcher's Purlieu to the south.
Every time your team defeats him, you'll receive points along with powerful buffs.
If Mettle's Theater isn't your thing, then fall through the rabbit hole to Tribulation's Vale,
where heartache and misfortune run as rampant as the resources you must collect.
You've got to be quick with your hands to excel in the Vale, because your mission here, should you choose to accept it, is to collect as many resources as possible.
Five separate trenches make up the map for Tribulation's Vale, and at the center of each trench are the nodes you must covet — Concentrated Resources. These power-packing resources are worth more than your average resource, so you'll want to focus on these to walk away with the win.
Hopefully, this has shed some light on the Battlefield buzz that's no doubt been zipping around like a bee in your bonnet. But why just read about it when you can try it for yourself? Remember, the key to success is practice, practice, practice!
So get out there and get your base-occupying, resource-collecting, kibosh-putting groove on!
A new way to level up...
The Infinite Hunting Ground
Nothing says 'I'm a bloodthirsty, monster-slashing maniac' like Infinite Hunting Grounds.
Only true EOS fanatics will have the starch, stomach, and spine to grind their way to the top levels.
Infinite Hunting Grounds are a great place to earn EXP and bags of secondary currency... but remember—there's no such thing as free lunch!
Don't forget this T.I.P. (truly important point)!
Exchange the secondary currency you acquire in Infinite Hunting Grounds for rare accessories and equipment you can't find anywhere else! Simply seek out your local Courage Badge merchant.
Each hunting ground has a required level for entry, and each major area of the game is home to two or three hunting grounds. See the map below for the one nearest you!
In Levens, you'll find the Goblin Camp (suitable for levels 10–15) and Wildcat Gorge (suitable for levels 15–20).
In Heliana, you'll find the Falcon Mercenary Base (suitable for levels 20–25), the Karquul Realm
(suitable for levels 25–30), and the Plains of Sorrow (suitable for levels 30–35).
In Portus, you'll find Ogre Canyon (suitable for levels 35–40), the Shadow Lair (suitable for levels 40–45),
and Dragon Cave (suitable for levels 45–50).
And lastly, in Rodby, you'll find the Forge of Madness (suitable for levels 50–55) and Frozen Forest (suitable for levels 55–60).
Never forget these two important points:
1) Always check the required level for a hunting ground before attempting to join the slaughter.
2) Have a powerful day.
As a last point of interest, you'll want to be on the lookout for fearsome elite monsters roaming the hunting grounds.
Don't try to take on these bad boys by yourself! Gather your party and venture forth to best these brutes.
Get me outta this place!
Do you remember how to enter dungeons? If not, never fear—just flip back in your handy tutorial to chapter one!
But if you do, let's move on to... exiting dungeons! Because once you go in, you'll probably want to leave at some point.
You'll also want to learn how to reset dungeons, because we know you'll want to loot each and every dungeon until you can loot no more.
As the great Sam L. once said, "hold onto your butts," because we're about to rip the lid off this thing.
Dungeons... you've seen one, you've seen 'em all.
But not so in EOS! With two different types of dungeons to choose from—Normal and Hero—you'll find yourself coming back time and time again.
One of the simplest ways to enter a dungeon is through its entrance on the main map. If you've already entered a certain dungeon,
its difficulty level will remain the same the next time you decide to enter.
Should you wish to change
the difficulty level, simply
click the dungeon icon at
the bottom of the screen
and select Dungeon
Alternatively, you can click Alt+X to open the Dungeon Settings window directly.
You might notice that a new window has popped up.
This is the Dungeon Settings window!
From here, you can toggle between Normal and Hero as much as your heart desires.
Just make sure you've selected your final answer before hitting the confirm button. But wait! That's not all!
You can also change the difficulty of a dungeon via Smart Matching.
Each time you enter a dungeon through the Smart Matching system, you'll have the option of choosing Normal or Hero.
The Dungeon Settings window allows you to change not only the difficulty of a dungeon, but also to reset it!
Simply give the Reset Dungeon button a tap, and everything in the dungeon will be reset,
allowing you to re-experience its every twist and turn like you've been dared for the very first time.
For some of you go-getters, though, we know that time is money, so you can also type "/dungeon reset"
in the chat window for a quick, window-less solution.
(North American Command: //dungeon_reset)
Remember—you can't reset a dungeon while inside it!
* Dungeon entry requirements and limits can be confirmed via the Dungeon Info window (Alt+Z).
Everything you've ever wanted to know about a particular dungeon can be found in the Dungeon Info window.
First and foremost: the dungeon's entry requirements!
Simply tap on a dungeon's name from the list
to bring up its entry requirements.
* Displayed window when entry requirements are met.
* Displayed window when entry requirements are not met.
Dungeons for which you don't meet the entry requirements are marked in red.
If you're unsure why you can't enter a certain dungeon, make sure you go over the requirements again.
Another great way to check up on your favorite dungeons is by spying on their monsters.
When you hover your mouse over the name of a dungeon, a list of its monsters will be displayed.
Monsters that have been eliminated already will be marked in red.
You may also have noticed the numbers and padlock located to the right of a dungeon's name.
These numbers represent how many times you've entered (and can enter) a dungeon.
Keep track of your entries if you plan on frequenting a certain dungeon (or two).
These numbers will be reset each week on maintenance days.
The last button we'll discuss is the circular arrow button you've no doubt noticed next to the padlock.
This button is for resetting a dungeon even if you haven't defeated the dungeon's main boss.
This is the ONLY way to reset a dungeon if the boss is not yet defeated (the chat window command will not work).
Resetting a dungeon via this button will use up one of your entries for that week, so watch out for jumpy, button-pushing fingers!
The last thing we'll discuss—and an issue of some importance—is how to escape a dungeon once you've reached the end.
We can only imagine you'll be champing at the bit to leave upon besting the final boss.
Leaving a dungeon is simple!
Take a look at the top left of your screen, and you'll spy an 'Exit' button.
True to its word, upon being clicked, it will send you back to wherever you were when you entered the dungeon.
