In Trials of the Gods, you’ll be able to unlock a new facility in your castle called The Fortune Teller. Trapped within a mysterious orb is the soul of an ancient fortune teller named Elize. Elize’s main purpose is to provide the player with dynamically generated goals to fulfill.
Elize will give you 5 tasks to complete at a time, each of which are chosen at random. Let’s take a look at an example:
- Defeat the Ceaseless Gladiator. This boss will appear in all Nether Realm Depths that end in “7”.
- Defeat a level 7+ Primal Sigil of the Imler.
- Win a full set of Arena matches.
- Complete an Artifact Realm. (side note: Artifact Realms will only have 20 levels instead of 100 after this patch)
- Complete a Realm Quest at Nether Realm Depth 133+.
You can complete these tasks in any order you want, and you can even work on multiple tasks at the same time. After you’ve completed all 5 tasks, Elize will appear and offer you a reward. The reward will typically include spell gem crafting components (in fact, this is the primary way you’ll earn these components) along with some additional items. Then, Elize will give you a new set of tasks to complete.
As you might have noticed, the first task in the above example would be incredibly easy for some players to complete if they simply travel, for example, to realm depth 7 as opposed to 777. In this scenario, you wouldn’t receive as substantial of a reward if you decided to take the easy way out or if you try to “cheat the system”. Conversely, you’ll receive extra rewards if you challenge yourself and complete these tasks in the most difficult way possible.
The goal of the fortune teller is to give players a more defined direction to take when they play the game. Currently, the post-story content has a very “sandbox” feel to it, and the goal of the fortune teller is to provide players with constant direction long after they’ve completed the base game. The fortune teller should also breathe new life into some activities you might not otherwise partake in as often, such as the arena or artifact realms.
There will be dozens of various tasks you can be assigned, but you must complete all 5 tasks before receiving new ones. You cannot reset, abandon, or re-roll your tasks… unless, of course, you’re lucky enough to receive a special item from Elize later on.
As always, I’m curious to hear your thoughts!
