"Yes, as you can see, I'm the grim reaper. No need to fear; I don't take lives indiscriminately. I've gathered the netherworld's most powerful warriors in one place at this tower. What do you say? Aren't your instincts telling you to take on this challenge? If you manage to fight through those warriors and arrive at the top of this tower, all the world will know your strength. Of course, I'll be there waiting in case you crash and burn..."

Tower of the Dead
Tower of the Dead.png
Location Valley of Fallen Souls
Min. Level 1
Level 50-70
Monster Level Varies
End Boss None


The Tower of the Dead 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 45 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 the Dead consumes one Dreyfus' Invitation.


You won't be able to use your normal consumables or Clear Cube Fragment skills. Instead, you'll have to rely on special consumables and cube frags that drop from enemies in the tower. Mana and Health regen are still in effect, but only for a limited time per floor. As you complete floors, you'll also gain back health & mana based on how quickly you cleared the floor. That said, clearing floors quickly will keep you healthy.

Death & Rewards

Unfortunately, you can't use tokens here, so 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.


Items will periodically drop after defeating certain enemies. These can be very beneficial and help you considerably, especially as you reach the higher floors. All consumables have a 10 second cooldown. These items will disappear from your inventory once you leave the Tower of the Dead.

Lord Deim may summon Nugol Larva; if too many are summoned to the field, they'll begin to devour one another until they grow into Large Nugol. Note that Lord Deim actually has more HP than it seems because he WILL use 2 HP potions, so ignore him and quickly kill the two eyes, which is fairly easy. Then work on our blade master (though he may use Frenzy).
