Tower of Ancient Progenitors[]

The Tower of Ancient Progenitors is a high-difficulty survival dungeon that opens for limited intervals. You can arrange a large team of all Awakened Characters and continue exploring until all characters have fallen, or until you reach the 60th floor. Each floor has one battle, and as you clear fixed reward floors (every ten floors) you can gain Awakening Skills and other prizes.

Monsters and rewards vary each time the tower opens.

Participation Conditions[]

To play the Tower of Ancient Progenitors you must:

  • Clear Arc 1 Chapter 1.
  • Have at least one Awakened Character.
    • Characters are Awakened automatically by obtaining any of their Mirrages other than their Reward Mirrage. They can also be Awakened manually by using five Awakening Drops on them.

It also must be during the Tower's open interval.

The Tower does not consume AP and there is no limit to the number of times you can enter. As long as you meet the above conditions, you can challenge it.

Team Formation[]

Team Formation

Only Awakened Characters can be added to the team. However, there are no restrictions on the number of characters that can be selected. The first four characters in the chosen formation will fight first. The remaining characters are treated as reserves.

Game Over[]

When a character is KO'd in battle, the next character from the reserves will replace them. If all members are KO'd it is a game over. Unlike regular quests, there is no "Retry" option. The battle formation and KO lists for the Tower do not affect other quests.

Reward Floors[]

Reward Floor

By clearing floors at set intervals (every 10) you will earn rewards. To see the details for rewards, check the "Reward Details" button on the main screen of the Tower of Ancient Progenitors.

  • First Time Clear Rewards: These rewards can be earned only once when clearing the corresponding floor. A receipt is recorded for each Tower interval, and rewards can be earned again the next time the tower opens. If a reward cannot be collected due to a full inventory, rewards will be delivered to the Gift Box.
  • Anima Spheres and Awakening Skills: You can choose to gain either an Anima Sphere or Awakening Skills at each reward floor. Unlike the first clear rewards, these can be earned an unlimited number of times each time you clear the corresponding floor.


Leaving Temporarily[]

After clearing a reward floor you can choose to temporarily leave the Tower. After leaving you can play other quests, strengthen characters, or perform any other gameplay features. To return to the Tower choose "Tower of Ancient Progenitors" from the quest selection screen. Strengthening characters or changes made to character equipment are present in the Tower after resuming.

Special Rules[]

The Tower differs from ordinary quests in some ways:

  • Actions in the Tower do not count towards mission completion.
  • Mirrage Gauge accumulation is different from regular quests. For characters with 0 Anima Spheres in particular, building the Mirrage Gauge is very difficult.
  • When a party member is KO'd, the member that takes over will inherit their Mirrage Gauge.
  • Mirrage Ratio is carried over to the next floor. However, it is reset after clearing a reward floor.
  • Ix(/Kocis) Overray cannot be used in the Tower.
  • There is no Retry option on Game Over.
  • Passports do not apply to rewards gained in the Tower.
  • Anima Sync does not apply in the Tower. However, the number of Anima Spheres held creates a similar effect.
  • When all party members are KO'd, the next party resumes battle with the enemy HP as it was.
  • When Anima Spheres reach 0 a character's HP is greatly reduced.

All-Out Battle Tower[]

The All-Out Battle Tower is an endgame survival dungeon that opens for limited intervals. Like the standard tower, only Awakened Characters can be used, and you can continue exploring until all characters have fallen, or until you reach the final floor. Each floor has one battle, and each battle rewards a set amount of Reward Books based on the time take to complete that battle.

Monsters and rewards vary each time the tower opens.

Participation Conditions[]

To play the All-Out Battle Tower you must:

  • Clear Arc 1 Chapter 1.
  • Have at least one Awakened Character.

It also must be during the Tower's open interval.

The Tower does not consume AP, but there is a 10 attempt limit to the number of times you can enter.

Climbing the Tower[]

Only Awakened Characters can be added to the team. The first four characters participate in the first battle, and each battle after that uses the next four characters. The tower has as many floors as there are potential teams of 4. If a team is KO'd, the next four characters are used as reserves to replace them, so losing a whole team will limit your potential progress.

Rewards[]

By clearing each floor, you will earn Reward Books. Reward Books can be redeemed for 3★ Gear Limit Breakers, various tickets, Spirit Fragments, Mirrage Gears, Skip Tickets, and Awakening Drops.

Special Rules[]

The Tower differs from ordinary quests in some ways:

  • Actions in the Tower do not count towards mission completion.
  • Teams inherit the Mirrage Gauge of the team before them.
  • Mirrage Ratio is carried over to the next floor. However, it is reset every 5 floors.
  • Ix(/Kocis) Overray cannot be used in the Tower.
  • There is no Retry option on Game Over.
  • Passports do not apply to rewards gained in the Tower.
  • Anima Sync does not apply in the Tower.
  • Anima Spheres give characters one plate of iron stance per sphere.
  • When all party members are KO'd, the next party resumes battle with the enemy HP as it was.

Anima Sphere[]

Anima Spheres are Character Enhancement Items that exist only in the Tower of Ancient Progenitors. A character's ability in battle is strengthened according to the number they possess. For each floor your clear in the Tower (or each hit you take in the All-Out Battle Tower), characters lose Anima Spheres. When Tower exploring ends (Game Over or Complete) all Anima Spheres are reset, and do not carry over to the next time.

Anima Sphere Sync[]

Sphere Sync Bonus

Sphere Sync characters have more Anima Spheres for battle. Sync characters change each time the Tower opens, and more may be added during the open interval. Current Sphere Sync characters are listed on the main screen for the Tower.

Anima Sphere Count[]

Here is how much Anima Spheres you gain by reaching and equipping Mirrage Weapons and Mirrages.

Limit Break Bonus -limit break- 0v2.png -limit break- 1v2.png -limit break- 2v2.png -limit break- 3v2.png -limit break- 4v2.png

Here is how the amount of Anima Spheres you have affect your stats in the standard Tower.

※ When Anima Spheres drop to 0, The character's max HP will drop to 25% of its original value.

Additional Information

  • Base Anima Sphere
    • All characters start off with 2 Anima Spheres.
  • Sphere Sync
    • Sphere Sync adds 2 Anima Spheres.
  • Reward Mirrage Sphere Count
    • Reward Mirrages will not give you Anima Spheres.
  • Duplicate Mirrage Weapons
    • Duplicate Mirrage Weapons, unlike events, will give you additional Anima Spheres.

Awakening Skills[]

You can choose whether to take all three or keep the previous skill set.

Higher tier skills appear as you draw lower tier skills.

Gaining Awakening Skills[]

You can select one character of all those brought to the Tower to learn Awakening Skills. All three skills are drawn at the same time. After seeing them, you can choose whether to take all three or keep the previous skill set. Awakening Skills apply not just in the Tower, but in Story and Event Quests as well. To see the skills a character has, go to the Character Status screen and select the Awakening Skills tab. When acquiring multiple Awakening Skills with the same effect, the effect is summed.

  • There are Awakening Skills with an upper limit on the summed effect value. This is displayed in the Maximum Value column.
  • Some Awakening Skills (Backstep Distance, Backstep Iron Stance Break, Backstep Evasion, and Backstep HP Recovery) cannot be drawn as duplicates.
  • Higher tier skills appear with higher probability as you draw lower tier skills. This effect is calculated across all Towers, and will be carried over the next time the Tower opens.
  • Boss characters (Mithos, Barbatos, etc) cannot use HP regeneration skills and characters who do not have casting artes cannot use 1st Cast Time Reduction. Invalid skills will have no effect when assigned to a character and will appear grayed out.
