    Default Preview - The Elite Zodias Gauntlet!

    It's the pinnacle of combat achievement in Zodias culture: The Zodias Gauntlet. Take on waves of elite level monsters to climb the leaderboards, collect mountains of gold, and secure some unique rewards.

    How to Play

    The Zodias Gauntlet can be unlocked by defeating Zodias bosses (Ekenta, Mecharydon and Rahabkor). Each one will grant points toward the global goal to activate the portal. Defeating the Elite versions will grant more points than normal. It will remain active for 24 hours.

    Once unlocked, you'll find the portal to the Zodias Gauntlet in the great hall of the Zodias Capital. But, there are some preparations you should make before you head through. The Zodias will require a group of 3 players, one of each class and is designed to be the most difficult content yet, so make sure to equip your best gear to stand a chance against the onslaught.

    Once inside, you'll face your first wave of monsters. You have 120 seconds to clear them. If successful, you will face wave after wave until you either run out of time, or your party wipes.

    You'll earn points as you go to climb the cyclical monthly Leaderboards.


    Loot & Rewards

    Monsters inside the Gauntlet will drop gold (and lots of it). Bosses and minibosses have a chance to drop the Elite Zodias Locked Crate.

    The Zodias "Pearl of the Deep" is a new Mythic item that increases the amount of Spirit XP your equipped Spirit Gear earns in Zodias and Elite Zodias. If it is in your inventory, it gives +5% Spirit in standard Zodias zones and +10% in Elite Zodias. This does stack with other Spirit XP multiplying effects!

    Achievements

    Defeat Elite Gauntlet Taa'Nyn (Wave 5) for 300 AP's and Elite Gauntlet Zaartarax (Wave 10) for 350!

    The Badge and Titles are cyclical rewards (like other Leaderboard rewards that expire after their respective terms).

    Zodias "Eating Machine" Spirit Gear

    As you may have noticed, the new crate contains an item for Spirit XP, which means the new Eating Machine spirit gear also comes along with this update!

    Visit Kotermain in the Zodias Capitol to purchase the recipes for Eating Machine Spirit Armor, Helmet and Weapons with Fathom tokens. To craft them, you'll need to collect various spirit resources around Arlor.

    In addition to scaling power, the Level 76 "Eating Machine" Spirit Gear invokes a set bonus when all three (3) pieces are worn together: +10 Primary Stat, 5% Haste, 25% Damage and 30% Speed.

    Level 76 "Eating Machine" Spirit Weapons also have a chance to proc various effects. The power/effectiveness of these procs increases with item level.

    Aegis: Chance to summon the "Harpoon Rotor" aura, which damages nearby enemies.


    Blade: Chance to apply "Wave Crash" on your target. This does significant single target damage.


    Bow: Chance to apply "Tide of Vengeance" to your target to do damage over time.


    Daggers: Chance to summon the "Sharktooth Shield" around your Legend, which reflects incoming damage.


    Staff: Chance to summon the "Healing Zodias Tide" around your Legend. Increases damage and restores health over time.


    Cannon: Chance to apply "Mecharydon's Armor Eater" which strips away your enemy's armor away for a short period.

    Timing
    The Elite Zodias Gauntlet, the Eating Machine Spirit equipment, Eating Machine crafting component loot, the Elite Zodias Locked Crate, and the Zodias Pearl are all expected to be available starting this Thursday, August 4th.

    The Elite Zodias Gauntlet (and everything mentioned above) is a permanent addition to the Zodias Campaign.

    Coming Soon: New Community Contest!

    In addition to all of the exciting things happening in game, keep an eye on the forums next week for some summer fun and a chance to unlock some in-game rewards for the whole Arcane Legends community!

    Cinco...I'm a little confused on what happened with the Pearl of the Deep? Were you not able to find a way so it gives Spirit XP% to unequipped Spirit Items in the inventory?

    Elite Zodias Gauntlet. I see there is not a mode with a no Timer version. That's so tragic. I felt like I made a compelling arguments on the topic with real variables and examples for it. On top of defending my statements. I will try it out ofc but I can already tell this is Content I am going to be skipping.

    Spirit Gear. Aegis looks very interesting Proc wise. Thank you for not giving up on the Spirit Gear and giving it another chance.

    I don't think giving Spirit XP to unequipped items is a good idea. That's why I didn't do it - and I'm not interested in doing it because that concept goes against the whole principle of the Spirit gear. However I did want to add a new item that gave your equipped gear additional Spirit XP when in use. It just doesn't make sense to advance Spirit items that are not in use.

    As for the 'no timer' version of the Gauntlet, I just disagree fundamentally. There's always Elite Zodias if you want to grind Elite content without a timer. If I were to duplicate the EZG with a 'no timer' version it would offer the same loot as Elite Zodias (so you're not missing anything in that regard - just the gameplay).

    Yes. The proc effects are better at higher levels but they can activate at any level :-)

    Spirit Weapon procs have a cool-down that affects the activation of other weapon procs but not the same Spirit Weapon. So: no stacking with other gear but no relevant cool-down between Spirit gear procs. Hopefully that makes sense. If not... you'll see it in action once you start playing with the new stuff! :-)

    Proc rates do not increase with item level. Rates are slightly higher for the new Eating Machine Spirit weapon procs compared to older Spirit gear.

    Crafting components are loot drops.

    Recipes vary in cost. 250 Fathoms for Helmet. 500 for Armor. 750 for Weapon.

    Recipes are bound and consumed on use.

    Thanks for the reply. I see I have nothing more to say on those topics then.

    Last question from me? How much Plat is the Pearl of the Deep?
