High-Tier Mission Battlefields were first introduced into the game in the December 2013 Version Update.
These battlefields bring back nostalgic enemies that have newfound strength to challenge even the most experienced veteran players. In order to challenge these foes, a key item is required by each party member to enter the battlefield. Key items require certain missions and quests to be completed before they are able to be purchased with Merit Points.

It is highly suggested that you communicate with your party members to verify that everyone has purchased the appropriate key item required for the fight you are entering.
There is no warning if a party member is unable to enter the battlefield. If one player forgets to purchase the item, and the other party members enter, the player has a chance to run back to town in order to purchase the key item as long as the other party members do not engage.

Key Item Sales

The following three NPCs sell the key items to enter the battlefields, one in each nation. Before you are allowed to buy the key item to enter the high level battlefield, you must meet the following requirements.

  • Must be level 95 or higher
  • Must have completed the lower level version of the battlefield
    • Note: More precise eligibility requirements for each battlefield can be found on each of the Phantom Gem key item pages.

Difficulty

Initially, players are only able to choose Very Easy, Easy or Normal difficulties while entering into a battlefield for the first time.
After winning your first battle on these difficulties, you are then able to choose Difficult or Very Difficult the next time you enter the fight.

  • Note that if a fellow party member has already initialized the fight, the battlefield will still be set to the difficulty chosen by the first party member to enter regardless of what you choose. This includes whether or not you have a higher difficulty unlocked or not.

Titles

Unique Titles are rewarded to players when they triumph over a battlefield on Very Difficult. These titles are listed below with the other battlefield information.

Rewards

Reforged Armor Rem's Tale Ch.1 icon.png Rem's Tale chapters and Item Level upgrade materials for Relic Weapons (Pluton icon.png Plutons), Empyrean Weapons (Riftborn Boulder icon.png Riftborn Boulders), and Mythic Weapons (Beitetsu icon.png Beitetsu) are distributed to each party member's personal inventory.

See the table below as an outline for Rem's Tale Chapters and R/E/M Upgrade items (Pluton, Riftborn Boulder, Beitetsu) that distribute into personal inventories upon winning a battlefield.

  • The type of Rem's Tales obtained from each battlefield is outlined in the battlefield section of this page below. These are denoted with the prefix "Direct Drop" to signify that each player who took part in the battlefields receives their own chapters.
  • As well as personal reward distribution, chapters also appear in the party's treasure pool along with unique weapons and equipment. These items can be received by any party member.

All battlefields except ★Divine Might

Difficulty Content Level Rem's Tale Chapters R/E/M Upgrade Items
Very Easy 113 1 0
Easy 116 1 1
Normal 119 2 1
Difficult Over 119 3 2
Very Difficult Over 119 4 2

★Divine Might Only

Difficulty Content Level Rem's Tale Chapters R/E/M Upgrade Items
Very Easy 113 2 0
Easy 116 2 2
Normal 119 4 2
Difficult Over 119 6 4
Very Difficult Over 119 8 4

Other Rewards

Drop rates for unique Rare/Exclusive rewards obtained as well as other rewards (E.g. Scrolls and upgrade materials) through these battles increase with the BCNM difficulty setting.

  • At Very Easy, Easy, and Normal difficulties, the drop rate for unique Rare/Exclusive items should be very roughly around 10% before Treasure Hunter. There is no data to support this drop rate, however.
  • At Difficult and Very Difficult, one item is guaranteed to drop. A second item has a very high probability.
  • Treasure Hunter will have a noticeable impact on drops for Very Easy, Easy, and Normal while having no effect for Difficult and Very Difficult.
    • Below Normal, drops are significantly rarer. Expect to go through dozens of fights with no rare/ex drops below Normal difficulty, especially without Treasure Hunter.
  • New High-Tier Mission BCNMs do not follow these rules. Rare/Exclusive drops are not guaranteed on Difficult or Very Difficult.

Monthly Adventurer Campaigns

There is one type of campaign that may run any given month.

A note on drops

An added gimmick was implemented in this battlefield compared to the other new battlefields, such as Champion of the Dawn II, because of the higher amount of gear that is obtainable from this BCNM.
For Normal, Difficult and Very Difficult, another equipment drop slot opens in the treasure pool for every one of the spitewardens that are killed during the battle.
Opening armor slots in the treasure pool does not guarantee a piece of armor will drop, but the overall chance of a drops increases. See the official forum post for further details.
