Gear & Content Segmentation

A note. Corridor of Trials, Silence, and the Sun are more colloquially known as Boss Rush by Season 1 players. There is an advised entry level for these contents, however the advised entry level can only clear the first 5 floors out of 15. Then the game says you’re too weak, and you can’t even hurt the stage 6 bosses consistently. You are expected to have a far higher item level to pass Corridor than what is mentioned. Which means you can easily lose a lot of materials by wasting your tickets and entering under item level. It’s also a huge source of EXP! So wasting tickets means wasting EXP. Check the appropriate section below for further information. In the case of Chaos Dungeon and Guardian Raids, if it looks like the next stage or boss rewards the same items, they likely give more materials or have a better chance at higher rarity equipment. In the charts below, some of the Chaos Dungeons aren’t guaranteed to give you the rarity as lower quality gear may still be in the loot pool. So for the case of Papunika Month 3 (T3) for example, even though that’s a source of Heroic gear most the gear you drop will be Rare. You would need to proceed to Papunika Sun to see less Rare gear. For RU Season 1 players, equipment in Korea was converted into Season 2 sets in the following manner.

  • S1 Piedmont Kings equipment became the T2 Lower Heroic Set Omen.
  • S1 Antares equipment became the T2 Mid Legendary Set Rising Blaze.
  • S1 Mystic equipment became the T2 Mid Legendary Set Ragebreaker.
  • S1 Kaiser equipment became the T2 Upper Artifact Set Doomsday.

Please read further down below, as the set effects of these gears are listed in this guide as well. The current enhancements on the items were preserved 1:1, so a +15 Kaiser became a +15 Doomsday. T1 gear players that didn’t reach Piedmont Kings yet were also compensated with new equipment from the Season 2 T1 sets (e.g. if your gear was between 525 and 600 you received the Dream Memory T1 Upper Artifact set). Note there is no guarantee that the compensation for gear in RU will be the same. I have some slight skepticism because it would be strange for them to compensate players with the strongest set of content that’s not yet present in Russia (Doomsday).

T4 Gear (Prediction)

  • Jump to T4 available from item level 1550, starts at item level 1802.

Corridor (Boss Rush)

In each Item Tier, there is a content that is wave after wave of bosses. They are Corridor of Trials, Corridor of Silence, and Corridor of the Sun. You obtain tickets to enter these contents from relevant Chaos Dungeons. A ticket works for both Normal and Hard mode. Note that the rewards between the two modes are very different, and not just a case of quantity. In Normal mode you are awarded the Lower and Mid Breakthrough Stones, whereas in Hard mode you are only awarded Upper Breakthrough Stones. Strategically, it makes sense to hold your tickets until they release the Hard mode to get the most value out of your ticket. Much like any contents, Corridor has a gate that prevents you from clearing it simply on entry. In all Corridors and all modes, entering at the recommended item level will only allow you to clear the first five stages of the Corridor. By the 6th stage, you will no longer be able to consistently deal damage, and have a high likelihood of failure. The game will notify you of the recommended item level for each stage.

15 430 800 930 1300 1430 1800

If you are underneath the recommended item level for a given stage, your attacks have a chance to be completely blocked by the boss. This chance increases the further you are from the boss level. You may be wondering why in Hard mode the recommended item level is so much higher than the jump level to the next tier. It’s because it is not intended for you to be able to clear all 15 floors in Hard mode without proceeding to the next Item Tier. For example, T3 starts at 1302, and so will be able to clear all of Silence (Hard)’s stages, whose last stage ends at 1300.
