Official Artwork for the March of the Tortodrones.

March of the Tortodrones is an event.

Overview

As you may recall, tortodrones disappeared from the Clockworks a long time ago and, apart for some stray shells here and there, they have not been seen by the Spiral Order for quite some time. Investigations into the cause were inconclusive, but Spiral HQ suspects fiends are somehow involved.

Now, the tortodrones are being called on the Long Migration. Even the Strangers do not know the reasons for this mysterious event but these giant, robotic tortoises can be glimpsed traveling through the clockworks.

Spiral HQ has new intel that fiends are gathering tortodrone parts and reassembling them. That can't be good...right? Scout the Clockworks for fiends to gather intel and fiendish glyphs. Investigate the Ancient Grove and put a stop to their nefarious activities! - Forum Post.

Gameplay

Crafting-Fiendish ID Card.png
The Fiendish ID Card is required to access the fight in this event's prestige mission. It acts like a Shadow Key: one player can use one card for the entire squad, and each card can only be used once.
Craft it at the Mysterious Alchemy Machine. It will be bound when crafted.

Fiendish Glyphs (Crafting-Fiendish Amu Glyph.png Amu, Crafting-Fiendish Nok Glyph.png Nok, Crafting-Fiendish Sol Glyph.png Sol, Fiendish Tor Glyph Tor, Crafting-Fiendish Ur Glyph.png Ur), which are materials for crafting this card, have a chance to drop from any defeated loot-dropping fiend, anywhere, during this event.

They also drop in bulk as rewards for fighting in special event-exclusive arcade areas. More information in the gallery below.

Glyphs are unbound upon acquisition.

Arcade

The following can randomly be encountered in arcade gates:

Prestige

Mission-March of the Tortodrones.png

"March of the Tortodrones" is an event-exclusive prestige mission that can be started as often as the player desires, so long as the player is at least Rank ???. It features two corrupted Tortodrones and a seemingly infinite number of fiends. Only when both of the corrupted Tortodrones are defeated can the player(s) claim victory.

Rewards and Prizes

Token Exchange

There are no tokens associated with this event. Instead, Crafting-Ancient Shell.png Ancient Shell materials are collected from defeated Tortodrones and used to craft various Tortodrone-related gear at the Mysterious Alchemy Machine.

Notes

In early versions of the game, players had chances to encounter regular Tortodrones in the clockworks. These monsters were removed for quite some time, and seem to have returned to the game with this event - but only corrupted tortodrones can currently be fought.

The first event was preceded by the appearance of several tortodrone scenario rooms in the arcade. The tortodrones in these scenarios seem to be "dead" or "inactive." Players can see these scenario rooms any time of the year, not just during the event.

Arcade Gallery

There are two different kinds of entrances to mysterious rooms that can be randomly encountered in Clockwork Tunnels. The "Mysterious Room" types below can be beyond either type of entrance.

  • Regular "Mysterious Rooms" are free, simply step on a button near the entrance to lower the gate.
  • "Bonus Mysterious Rooms" require 5 energy to access.
