NEW BONUS DUNGEONS
As the name implies, there are no weapon drops in this dungeon! Physical attacks do minimal damage, so use arrows, rocks and other ranged attacks to fight your way through.
*Scrounge for Items!
Always be on the lookout for ways to maximize your supply of ranged weapons. Replicate items with a Fever Pot, pick up arrows from traps, or stock up at shops.
*Know When to Run!
Some enemies are immune to arrows or traps. Use a Seal Staff or Can. Arm Bracelet to deal with them. Don't forget--Gazers are immune to staves.
Cloister of Certain Doom
Challenge yourself by setting a target number of turns to clear the dungeon within. Fail, and get booted back to the surface. How low can you go?
*Establish a Baseline!
High drop rates for equipment and food make this dungeon relatively easy. Establish a baseline by starting with the maximum number of turns and seeing how many you need to clear the dungeon.
*Learn the Floor Types!
Every 10 floors will be either a large maze full of items or a small area packed with monsters. Maze floors have exploding enemies that you can use to blow through walls and rush to the exit stairs. Every 8 floors has Mixer enemies, which you can use to meld equipment.
Garden of Destiny
Defeating a monster in one attack nets a huge experience boost, but the more attacks it takes, the less experience you earn!
*Unlocked by clearing the main game.
*Maximize EXP Gain!
Only physical attacks from Shiren count towards the number of attacks, so wear down a monster with rocks and arrows (or attacks from companions!) before landing the finishing blow.
*Learn Enemy Weaknesses!
Weapons effective against certain monster types are common drops in this dungeon. Keep an arsenal on hand to handle any enemy.

This time around, the system connects all adventurers around the world, regardless of language or region settings.
*There is an option to filter/limit these features by player language settings.
