The first seven floors of Mushin’s Tower are arriving Blade & Soul on Feb. 10 with the Rising Waters update.
In far flung ages when the Naryu Empire stood supreme over the world, its greatest sages constructed a looming tower so tall it touched the heavens. Its sole purpose: to train Mushin, the heir to the Naryu Empire’s royal line. Only through rigorous training against as wide a variety of threats as possible could Mushin truly become a god among men, surpassing all with his astounding martial prowess. Warriors from around the world flocked to Mushin’s Tower in hopes of facing its challenges and earning to right to duel Mushin himself in glorious single combat.
The tower was sealed away after Mushin’s demise, but with the world in peril because of Jinsoyun’s machinations, it has once more opened its grand doors. Martial artists from all walks have eagerly hurried to challenge the tower, overcome its dangers, and prove themselves equal to the legendary Mushin himself.
The Main Hall
Everyone starts at the bottom, but thankfully the ground floor of Mushin’s Tower is well-equipped to help prepare warriors for the arduous trek ahead of them. Mushin’s Hall contains unique merchants with rare items, training areas where warriors can hone their skills, and an arena floor for those who wish to practice with peers in friendly sparring matches. From here, the only way to go is up! Challengers must begin at the first floor and work their way skyward, though returning warriors are able to skip ahead to higher floors without having to spend time on opponents they’ve already outclassed.
The Seven Deadly Levels
Each floor of Mushin’s Tower offers a unique threat to test a warrior’s abilities. One cannot survive on brute strength alone, but must understand all classes’ strengths, use teamwork, and fight with an attention to detail in order to pull through. Special dangers await those mighty enough to make the climb, like the devious Pale Stalker Jiangshi, the Silver Deva, fellow martial artists from the realms’ most prominent clans, and even the mightiest swordsman of all: Junghado!
Surviving Mushin’s Tower is no small feat, but it offers valuable treasures and knowledge for those bold enough to try. But one should never rest on their heels… reaching the seventh floor is surely only the beginning.
