The Catacombs is an event where you can fully demonstrate your skill at jumping over traps.
The goal of the event
The player must run as far as possible, collecting skulls of different colors (we'll talk about them later), and stay alive.
How to participate in the event
You will need to tap the event tab on the left side of the screen. When you tap on it, the event window will appear, as shown below:
To enter, you will need to spend a certain amount of a special currency - Pickaxes (other currencies may be available depending on the theme of the event).
Pickaxes can be obtained in the following ways:
- Successful dungeon raid (not guaranteed and there is a daily limit);
- Daily reward;
- Purchase for orbs;
- For viewing ads.
If you don't have enough pickaxes, you will see the following message:
When you tap the "Play" button, you will be sent to a randomly generated level at "Checkpoint 1".
The dungeon is endless, and it depends only on you when you finish a raid.
At each Checkpoint you'll find a huge number of skulls.
The skulls are divided into 4 colors and can be sorted by rarity:
White skulls are the most common. Others are less common.
Once you have collected a certain number of skulls, you can get Skull Chests. The progress of filling the chests is shown at the bottom of the screen.
The number next to the chest shows how many chests you have already collected.
During your journey through the catacombs, you will come across various traps. Unlike regular dungeons, you will not die if you hit one, nor will you start from the beginning.
Once you take damage from a trap, it will automatically turn off (become transparent). At the same time, any other traps that you have not taken damage from will continue to work:
However, you will lose health points every time a trap hits you.
At the top of the screen is a mini-map showing how far you have to go to reach the exit (door icon):
The end of the level is indicated by the Exit Zone sign, after which there are no more traps or shards.
As soon as you reach the exit zone, you will automatically recover 80% of your health (from the full scale, not from the lost health points).
You will then see a pop-up: "Take and leave or continue". You have 10 seconds to decide:
If you tap "Continue", then the game will continue from the next checkpoint.
If you tap "Take and leave", a confirmation window will appear:
All along the way, the saw "follows" you. Your character will die if it reaches you.
If you have no health left (the bar in the right corner is empty), the following window will appear:
The "Leave" button allows you to exit the catacombs WITHOUT rewards.
The "Take & Leave" button - to collect the chests and leave the event. In this case, chests that are not fully filled will NOT be filled.
The "Revive" button - to restore health and resume the game from the beginning of the same checkpoint where you died, keeping your rewards.
The number of chests is determined by the number of skulls you collect during the raid. The higher the rarity of the chest, the better the reward you can receive from it.
Сhests can also contain bones. They are used to fill the progress bar on the main event screen:
Once you reach the castle on the right, you will receive your reward. You can do this as often as you like. The more times your thief reaches the castle during the event, the more valuable the reward will be.
This is an example of such a reward (the actual reward may vary):
The rewards for completing the progress bar and obtaining skulls chests are two different rewards.
These resources can be obtained from the chests:
- ingredients (leaves etc.);
- unique stones for the Ancient Totem (very rare).
IMPORTANT: The reward for filling the progress bar changes. You may receive the same reward several times in a row, but this does not mean that you will always receive the same reward.
Q: Does the throne affect the health bar in an event?
A: No. Everyone has the same amount of health, whether you have just installed the game or are the King of Kings.
Q: I was playing an event, reached the checkpoint, and my health was restored to 100%. I had to go away for a while, so I closed the game but didn't collect any rewards. Then I returned to the event and I don't have 100% health anymore, it's less! Why is that?
A: Each time you re-enter an event, you lose health points (~10% of the total bar for a re-entry).
