Trials of Heroes!

In this post you will find all the information regarding this gigantic monthly event! All general questions/comments regarding the Trials of Heroes (ToH) should be in this post. You can also post screenshots/feedback from TOH you participated in.

In order to show one's worthiness, an aspiring hero will need to prove himself, this is such a chance. An event of great proportions and of dire importance to those who wish to be recognized as heroes!

This event will be held once a month and is the only way to obtain some of the hero Light and Dark gears! Important: You may only get 1 hero gear per ToH!

First Generation: Light: Angeling Wings & Angeling Helm / Dark: Deviling Wings & Deviling Helm
Second Generation: Light: Mini Angelic Wings / Dark: Mini Demonic Wings
Third Generation: Light: Diving Wings / Dark: Demonic Wings

Fourth Generation: Light: Luminous Wings / Dark: Gargoyle Wings

Fifth Generation: Light: Archangel Wings, Seraphim Wings & Celestial Wings / Dark: Archdemon Wings, Tenebrous Wings & Twilight Wings (when you get to 5th generation you can choose which one you want from the 3 different styles offered).

The wing system is evolutive, meaning your wings "grow" and evolve as you become a higher hero! ^_^ To obtain the Second generation wings you must first obtain the first generation wings (Angeling/Deviling) and TRADE them for the new wings. You will obtain them with the same refine level (for first and second gen only since 3rd and up are unrefinable) and same card inside if any!

You can get a new pair of 1st generation whenever you want, providing you have won a ToH. Thus allowing you to have multiple separate pairs of either heroic wings, there is no maximum anymore to how many pairs you can have.

We will try to make the time of the ToH vary each month to accommodate as many people as possible. I am unfortunately not responsible if you cannot make it to the event due to external circumstances. To accommodate as many people as possible, TOH is usually held during the weekend.

Heroes have to show up on time! "Late registration" are NOT allowed. Registration will usually close at most 15 minutes after the announced time. The hosting GM has to open registration at least 30 minutes in advance, and he/she can decide to close registration before the 15 minutes is over, as long as the ToH announced time has passed.


The requirements to enter the Trials of Heroes:

- There is a zeny entry fee for the event (see below), payable at the start of the event. There will be no refund if you must leave before the event ends. (But you can still receive your prize later even if you leave early, the prize you qualify for will depend on the points accumulated before you left + the Mass Battle if your side won.)
> Level 1-89 non-trans: 200k
> Level 90-99 non-trans: 300k
> Level 1-89 trans: 400k
> Level 90-99 trans: 500k

- You need to have 50 Allegiance points (either Light or Dark) to enter the TOH. (You do not lose those points, you simply need 50+ to qualify)

- To enter the Event, simply talk to the ToH NPC located near the Prontera Tool Shop. The NPC will only warp you on the day of the ToH if a GM has activated the NPC. Otherwise the NPC will simply give you the date of the next ToH.

- Have a few hours of free time ahead of you, the event last about 5 hours usually, sometimes more when we have a very high number of participants.


When you register for the event, the npc will give you an item 'Score Sheet', you can equip it at any time to know your current ToH score. If you have to leave early, once you come back you can hand your Score Sheet at the ToH Prize NPC to receive your reward. The Prize NPC is in the ToH Island map where you're saved during the ToH.


The trials!

There are 5 different trials, and each aspiring hero will participate in 4 of them and try to score as many points as possible, see further below for a list of the points and their reward.

Out of the first 3 trials, each participant must choose 2. The last 2 trials are open to everyone and give bonus points. The 2/3 trials concept is to make it fair to most players, not everyone is pvp oriented and I think we must respect that, being a hero is not just about killing other players!
  • 1- Monster fighting (50 points in total, 5 phases)
    The participant who chooses this trial will have to go through 5 corridors, each containing different monsters. The participant will start at one end of the room, the monsters being in the middle and must get to the end of the room. Each room will be limited to 2 minutes, participants are healed in between phases.
    * Killing all the monsters and crossing the room without dying earns you 10 points.
    * Getting to the end of the room without dying but failing to kill all the monsters earns you 5 points.
    * Killing all the monsters in the room without making it to the end earns you 5 points.
    * Dying in a room earns you 0 points.
    * Failing to get to the end of the room or to kill all monsters in 2 minutes earns you 0 points.
  • 2- Item gathering (50 points, 5 types of items)
    The participant who chooses this trial will have to gather certain items, in a closed map with special monsters who have special drops and npcs who will trade you certain items. This will make it impossible to pre-gather the items (players will be checked at the start of the event anyway). There is a time limit for the item gathering (between 20 to 35 minutes, it will be announced before it starts). Everyone participates in this trial at once. KSing is obviously forbidden.

    To make it a little easier, here is a list of NPC names and what they produce:

    Cheese-Maker => Smelly Cheese
    Wisewoman => Magic Necklace
    Tailor => Fancy Robe
    Armorsmith => Black Armor
    Moon-Knight => Moon Jewel

    Note: There are 5 different items to gather in this trial, usually 2 of them will need to be made with NPCs, while the other 3 will drop directly from the monsters.

    Resurrections is automated every 1 minute.

    * Successfully gathering the right amount of an asked item earns you 10 points. Fictional example: the list asks for 10 apples and you gathered 10 (or more).
    * Successfully gathering half of the amount of an asked item earns you 5 points. Fictional example: the list asks for 10 apples and you got between 5 and 9.
    * Successfully gathering some of the amount (less than half) of an asked item earns you 2 points. Fictional example: the list asks for 10 apples and you got between 1 and 4.
    * Failure to gather at least 1 of an asked item earns you 0 points.
  • 3- PVP duels (50 points in total, 5 fights)
    The participant who chooses this trial will battle 5 opponents of different classes (if possible) amongst the other aspiring heroes. Each fight will be limited to 2 minutes. All players will be fully healed hp/sp before each fight. There will be a time for prebuffs (your own buffs + taking speed pot) before each fight. The NPC will make a countdown 3, 2, 1 and GO, players are not allowed to start moving/casting before the GO.
    A participant may offer the Tie to their opponent, they can offer this during the prebuff time only, if the opponent has not agreed within 15 seconds the tie offer is considered refused.
    Players are not allowed to leave the designated pvp area (with tk jump for example).

    Skill limitations:
    The Stalker skill "Chase Walk" can only be used for up to 10 consecutive seconds.
    The Novice skill "Play Dead" can only be used for up to 30 consecutive seconds.
    The High Priest skill "Basilica" can only be used for up to 30 consecutive seconds (level 3).
    Rogue/Stalker are allowed to use the plagiarize skill however they are responsible for their copied skill and will not be allowed to go get it back if they lose it during a fight.
    Alchemist and Creator cannot use "resurrect homunculus" during battle.

    * Winning a fight earns you 10 points.
    * A tie earns you 5 points (a tie occurs if both players are still alive after 2 minutes or when both players die at the same time, known as double-KO).
    * Losing a fight earns you 0 points.
    * Breaking a pvp rule makes your opponent win automatically and earns you 0 points.
  • 4- Trivia! (Bonus points)
    All aspiring heroes get to participate in this trial which will test your knowledge of RO and will help you earn additional points. With the help of a NPC the GM hosting will ask a series of questions, each worth 5 points. We try our best to make all questions clear and have only 1 answer. Usually there are 5 questions, we'll announce it if we are to have a different number. Players input their answers via the NPC, the answer must be properly spelled (use lower case) and in the time frame allowed in order to receive the points.
  • 5- Light VS Dark Mass PVP Battle (Bonus of 10 points)
    This last trial is opened to all participants and will oppose the Light players to the Dark players in team battles. It will be a 2 out of 3, that means the first team to win 2 fights wins the Mass Battle.
    The goal is simple, kill all players of the opposing allegiance. All players on the winning side earn a bonus of 10 points.
    We will not make anyone (nor allow people to) change sides, which means we do not control the number or the force of the players on each side. If for example, 30 light players and 80 dark players enter the ToH it will be a battle of 30 vs 80, however unfair it may seem! It is up to each side to encourage their players to participate.
    Before a fight start there will be 2 minutes allowed for strategy, followed by 2 minutes for prebuffs. Players are allowed to set traps/plants/icewall during the prebuff period, but not before.

List of prizes:

In order to have access to the hero gears (you must choose between wings or helm, you cannot earn both in the same ToH), a player must score a minimum of 70 ToH points! Here is a list of more detailed prizes:

Note: These are the points you score in the event, they don't have anything to do with your Light or Dark Allegiance points (those are only necessary to enter the ToH)!

100 ToH points and above: Your hero gear + 2 OCA + 2 OPB + 10 Allegiance points!
90 ToH points: Your hero gear + 1 OCA + 10 Allegiance points.
80 ToH points: Your hero gear + 1 OPB + 1 Bloody Branch + 5 Allegiance points.
70 ToH points: Your hero gear + 1 Bloody Branch + 5 Allegiance points.
60 ToH points: 3 OPB + 1 Bloody Branch + 5 Allegiance points.
40 ToH points: 3 OBB + 1 Bloody Branch + 5 Allegiance points.
39 ToH points and below: 3 Poring Box + 2 Gift Box

Extra bonus: everyone who belongs to the allegiance side that won the mass battle (regardless of ToH participation) get a small bonus until the next ToH! This bonus will be changed every few months.

Current bonus: discount at the Warper NPC!
Previous bonus: discount at the Healer NPC!

After the Mass Battle players are sent back to the ToH Island map where they hand their Score Sheet to the Prize NPC. Players with 70+ points will receive a ToH Voucher, it can be traded to a NPC to get their Heroic Wing or Angeling/Deviling Helm.

Player who already have wings and have put a card in them will receive the higher wings with the same card, unless they no longer like the card in which case they can ask the NPC to uncard their wings. The player will lose the card entirely.

After the prize ceremony a group screenshot of the triumphant heroes is usually taken ^_^

RE: Trials of Heroes!

Seeing as how it's coming close to September, and the fact that the majority of the people who hold 50 points on either side are inactive, wouldn't it be better if the limit was lower or nonexistent?

There's also no way of scraping together 50 points from 0, even with the custom quests already provided.

RE: Trials of Heroes!

Actually, yes there are.

Joining a side = 5 points
Lover's Quest = 5 points
Exploration Quest = 20 points
Making a girl happy quest = can total up to 50 points!

New quest comming soon = 5 or 10 points (will have to check)

That is without counting I'll be making some L/D events until then.

Granted the event is for a handful of people at the moment, 38 to be precise! But the requirement will stay the same, and more people will get to enter as time goes. Those who can enter now should feel lucky!

RE: Trials of Heroes!

If you are neutral, than you don't have enough points to qualify to enter the event, XD sorry!

You need either 50 light points or 50 dark points. For those who registered and don't yet have 50 points make sure you have them for the event!
