Tower of Fantasy Road of Strife Event: The Stellerway Divergence
The Stellerway Divergence is phase two of the event and will entail players travelling to gates which are essentially mini-challenges. You can proceed with the challenges alone or recruit teams to help. The Star Gates often involve defeating enemies, protecting towers from enemies and other combat-focused scenarios.
There is a total of six Star Gates per Stellerway Divergence and each yields 300 Star Grit upon completion. These gates are represented as red pulsating icons on the map and glowing, floating red squares in the world.
Tower of Fantasy Road of Strife Event: Mega Arena
The last phase is called the Mega Arena and is due to unlock on September 8. The phase will feature PvP combat with opposing teams of two. To win the matches, simply defeat the two opponents. The caveat is that the arena shrinks in size every 75 seconds and if you get caught outside the parameters, you'll face a HP reduction buff. Jetpacks are also locked in the competition, all healing effects are decreased by 50% and all resonances, Simulacrum traits and Matrix effects are disabled for the duration to allow for even matchmaking.
You'll receive 400 Star Grit if your team of two wins, or 200 if you lose as a substantial consolation prize.
