    Hey guys, just decided to write a detailed guide to help you guys understand the mechanics of Victory Tournament (for those who are still rather clueless)

    Victory Points Tournament [Season 2 on from July 22nd 00:00 to July 25th 23:59 <Server Time>]
    Previous Seasons [Season 1 on from May 29th 00:00 to June 2nd 23:59 <Server Time>]
    [​IMG]

    First and foremost, do take note: This is open to all summoners from LEVEL 15 AND UP ONLY.

    This Tournament works differently from the Frontier Hunter as each individual will be put into a selected group and you basically compete within the players of your group instead of a global ranking like FH. You will be divided into Level Tiers according to the following level range:

    Tier 1: Levels 15 - 24
    Tier 2: Levels 25 - 34
    Tier 3: Levels 35 - 44
    Tier 4: Levels 45 - 54
    Tier 5: Levels 55 - 64
    Tier 6: Levels 65 - 74
    Tier 7: Levels 75 - 84
    Tier 8: Levels 85 - 94
    Tier 9: Levels 95 - 200

    Players within each Level Tier will be allocated to a random smaller group to compete for rank within the group.
    (Example: The Lvl 95 and above Tier will be further broken down into smaller groups of which you will be competing against -Same goes for each Tier)

    If you Level during the Event Period to cross Tiers, you actual group will not change. Your Tier and group is fixed from the very beginning of the event.

    I am not sure how many players are within 1 small group but it's estimated to be around 20,000 - 40,000 players per group
    Do take note that the Victory Tournament Rewards only apply to the 1st-10,000th ranked players of your individual groups.
    For players ranked 10,001th and above, it looks like there isn't any reward for you guys. Therefore this is not like Frontier Hunter where almost everyone walks away with at least something.

    Also, for those in Tier 9 (or as we call it 'the HELL Tier', although you guys are further broken down into smaller group, do note that you can still end up with players up to Level 200

    Methods of Gaining Victory Points
    So how does one go about getting Victory Points?

    First and foremost, you should see this countdown to know that the Victory Tournament is going on
    [​IMG]

    You can gain Victory Points either through Questing, Vortex and Arena

    PLEASE TAKE NOTE: SEASON 2 TOURNAMENT DOES NOT PROVIDE VP FOR QUESTS, ONLY VORTEX & ARENA

    Skip this Section for Season 2

    Questing for Victory Points
    Almost every area in every map of the 3 worlds have Victory Points attached to them. The only exception is Palmyna World (3rd page); none of the quests there provides VP so do stay away from there. It's easy to tell which ones give VPs and which does not. The Shield located at the side of a Quest Area signifies that it is part of the Victory Tournament. (Picture below)
    [​IMG]


    By now some of you are probably like "Which is the best place to farm?!?!"
    Well for your convenience, here are some of the best spots to farm for Victory Points based on the ratio looking at Victory Points gained per 1 Energy.

    #1 St.Lamia Palace (The Fourfold Pillar) gives 280 VP for 10 Energy (28VP/Energy) - Best Overall EXP rate as well
    #2 St.Lamia Mt.Wistorea (The Riotous Thunderbird) gives 219 VP for 8 Energy (27.3VP/Energy)
    #3 Cordelica Final Map (The Giant God Awakes) gives 416 VP for 16 Energy (26VP/Energy)
    #4 Encervis Final Map (The Mad God Descends) gives 438 VP for 18 Energy (24.3VP/Energy) - Great for those who have yet to capture Zebra
    #5 St.Lamia Final Map (Creator of the World) gives 324VP for 14 Energy (23.1VP/Energy)


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These are the Current Information on VP rate for Vortex Dungeons

    - Metal & Jewel Parades give 225 VP (15VP/Energy)
    - Enchanted Paradise: (Idols & Pots) gives 300 VP (12VP/Energy), (Spirits) gives 200 VP (10VP/Energy), (Nymphs) gives 70 VP (7VP/Energy)
    - Cave of Desire: (Dragon Mimic) 300 VP (12VP/Energy)
    - Oasis of the Gods: (Totems) 600 VP (20VP/Energy) (Miracle Totem) 1,100 VP (22VP/Energy)

    - Unholy Tower Floor 1 - 30 gives 150 VP (10VP/Energy)
    - Unholy Tower Floor 31 - 70 gives 300 VP (15VP/Energy)
    - Unholy Tower Floor 71 - 100 gives 500 VP (20VP/Energy)
    - Unholy Tower Floor 101 - 130 gives ?
    - Unholy Tower Floor 131 - 160 gives 500 VP (20VP/Energy)
    - Unholy Tower Floor 161 - 190 gives 660 VP (22VP/Energy)
    - Unholy Tower Floor 191 - 200 gives 875 VP (25VP/Energy)


    Challenging the Arena for Victory Points
    [​IMG]


    Every time you Win an Arena round you gain Victory Points (VP) on top of the usual Arena Battle Points. Points acquired upon winning will be calculated based on Arena Battle Points gained. The maximum however is capped at 65 Victory Points (just like how ABP is capped at 200 per round).

    In order to gain the most Victory Points of your Arena Battles, you want to aim towards achieving 200 ABP per round. This means you have to find someone who has at least 3,000 ABP higher than you to ensure the full 65VP at the end.

    [​IMG]
    -For those of you who are not sure on how you can view your opponent's ABP before taking them on, tap on the last arena orb (marked by the red circle) repeatedly (like about 10 times?) and then click refresh once more to view the points. I understand different people have different ways of displaying ABP however this seems to be the most effective.

    [​IMG]

    That would be all you need to know about the Victory Tournament. If anyone has any information you think would be useful to add on to, feel free to post here and i'll update this post accordingly.

    All the best to everyone!

    Yes, a little calculation error my bad. Corrected it, Encervis Zebra's map is now #3 while Cordelica's at #2.

    Anyway for those clueless about how the tournament even works, i'll be updating the thread further to give a clear view on how it all goes about. Check back in an hour or two perhaps. For now, you might just want to keep doing Fourfold Pillar.

    Edit: Thread's fully updated now :)

    So, we need to be at least 1000 in ranking so that we can get a reward? The prizes would make Gem users take a Bloodbath...

    So went and got First ever Miracle Totem and received zero points for effort, it's good that Gumi cares... Well got one gem for it. Will use for questing, have not finished St. Lamia yet.
