Fantasy Island – Krateis Cube

by Hypnocrit June 6th, 2010

So much blood in Kratei’s Cube …
So much of my own blood, covering what use to be a floor.
Arms weak, nerves decaying, legs twisted.
I should have trusted my gut feeling, now I can’t even
feel my gut.

Description

Kratei’s Cube is a PvP and PvE addition on Fantasy Island that allows players to fight against one another and creatures in a twenty minute timed matched. Unlike other events, players earn points for killing other players, as well as creatures within the Kratei Cube’s maze of rooms. Players with the highest point total after the round is over earn Fantasy Isle Coins, which can be exchanged at the Fantasy Isle’s NPC Paddies for valuable rewards. Finding and slaying a rare creature is worth up to 50 points and could mean the difference between victory and defeat! Also, whenever you die in the Cube, your CP, MP and HP are fully restored, so you can go right back into the fray if there is time left on the match with no points or xp loss.

Kratei’s Cube is available at the ever-expanding Fantasy Isle area and is accessible to players level 70 or higher. With up to 25 players in addition to the Kratei’s Cube creatures, there will be enough challenge for everyone! And with matches starting every half hour, there is hardly any downtime. If players missed entry for one match they only need to wait for the next, or if the match is complete, sign up for the next! Kratei’s Cube is perfect for quick, fast paced action that doesn’t require a lot of down time — just jump in and fight.

Monster – 3 Points

Kratei’s Cube is built as the name sounds, it’s a huge 5×5 matrix cube, thus it has 25 rooms with cubes combined in to one another with gates opening and closing at set intervals. There are four different types of mob spawns.

NPC Krateis Watcher

1.3 NPC Krateis Watcher

It either spawns 2, 3, ,4 or 5 monsters in a single room.
The spawns will stay the same in each room for the entire match, but then that room may well have different spawns in the next match
The speed of the respawn will depend on the speed with which you kill the mobs. Kill faster, the monsters respawn faster!

In the center of every room there is a Kratei’s Watcher(pic 1.3) that either glows blue or red. If it glows red it will give a debuff. It’s either one of these

poisen (damage)
fire (damage)
slow (no damage)

If it glows blue it will either heal your HP, MP or CP or all three over time, it depends in what room you are in. To make it change color from blue to red or red to blue just attack it once and it will change it’s color.
When you change a Kratei’s Watcher the Kratei’s Watcher in the adjacent rooms will also change
The buffs/debuffs change when you change the Kratei’s Watcher color. So if you don’t like the buffs, turn the Kratei’s to the other color and then turn it back and you may get the buffs you want.

All Monsters in kratei’s cube counts as undead and drop herbs.

As the monsters give 0 XP you don’t use vitality hunting in here, neither do Vitality give any extra bonus on the XP or SP earned at the end of the event. This means you can still earn xp and regenerate vitality at the same rate as resting in town.

If you die in the Kratei’s Cube you will respawn back in the spawn room, just talk to the Match Manager(pic 1.4)

to get back and fully buffed and ready for fighting again.

Example:

MrNuker is a level 78 StormScreamer and is dying to try out his new Arcance Mace on  fellow players and decides to join a game of Krateis Cube. MrNuker do the 20 min match with 22 other people and have a blast.  He managed to kill 7 players and 150 monsters and he only died once. And he ended up pretty well on the score board as he got on second place. His score will be counted as follows:

He kills 7 players and 150 monsters, that will get him 520 points, (7*10) + (150*3) = 520

520 points give him (520 points * 2.100 XP) + (520 points * 210 SP) = 1.092.000 XP and 109.200 SP

And for placing on second place with 23 participants he get 90 Fantasy Island Coins.
