About Shadow DungeonsTop ^
Shadow Tower Lobby can be accessed via Trovian Atlas (in Hub, or Ctrl+A by default), or via Shadow Tower Portal in clubworlds.
Portals opend on Shadow Tower Portal workbenches lead to the first dungeon on selected floor. To open a portal player needs Flux, 50 Flux per Normal floor, 250 Flux per Hard floor and 500 Flux per Ultra floor.
No more than 8 players can be in one dungeon at a time. Anyone in group can /joinme username other players to join the group, joining players must have appropriate Power Rank. Person who opened a portal is appointed a "group leader" and can /kick username other players from a group (they are being teleported to Trovian Hub Square if kicked).
Shadow dungeons spawn either as Arena dungeon (5 waves of monsters in one room) or as big Dungeons, which have at least one Cursed Skulls quest before Main boss. Minor quests are usually tied to Barricade 0, which block the way to Main boss. Completing minor quests removes barricades.
Completing either Quest or Miniquest replenishes Flask charges. If killed in Shadow dungeon, player will remain dead till wave of monsters is finished or till the boss is killed. If all players in a group are dead before wave is completed, quest resets and starts from the beginning.
After completing a dungeon players proceed to end room which has already opened portal on said workbench leading to the next dungeon on the floor.
