You follow illusions your entire life just to learn that everything is worth nothing at all; a poignant irony that makes life the greatest gift of all. It's sad that once you learn that, life is just about over. Are you confused? Do you lack meaning in life? Have you lost your way, not knowing what to do? Let me invite you to my world of illusions where you don't have to spend your whole life struggling to find the truth. Just come to me and accept the gift of life that I have to offer you.

Monster Level Varies

The Tower of Illusion is a special gauntlet-type area, where you must attempt to get as far as you can. In order to move on, you must defeat all enemies on a floor before going to the next. There are 15 floors in total, and the further you go, the harder the enemies get. Consequently, the enemies also get harder if you bring more people with you. However, you're put on semi-even odds with your enemies, as your stats will increase to balance out with the enemies (much like the balancing in PvP). Entering the Tower of Illusion consumes one Dreyfus' Invitation.

  • The Tower of Illusion does not require and fatigue points to enter, nor does it consume any.


Unlike the Tower of Death, you're free to use whatever consumables and cube frag skills you have.

You cannot use life tokens, but you can use "Use" items.

Some moves are also put on automatic cooldown (such as Awakenings), and Summmons don't carry over from one floor to the next, with the exception of a Mech's G-Series skills.

Death & Rewards

Since you can't use tokens here, if you die, that's it. You'll gain Item Cards and extra experience based on how far you made it up the tower. The further you make it up the tower, the more Item Cards and EXP you'll get. However, the max amount of Item Cards is limited to five, and the fifth can only be gotten if you beat your previous record upon completing the tower.


  • Varies from floor to floor. You'll face a wide variety of enemies throughout the tower from other areas, as well as many APCs.
  • Upon defeating all the enemies on your floor, you will recover 50% HP and MP.
