The Tower of Infinitum is divided into two parts. While the raid boss for the first part is Demon Prince, the raid boss for the second part is Ranku.
When hunting between the first and fourth (and also between sixth and ninth) floor, there is a chance of suddenly being moved down a floor or, with a somewhat lower probability, you may unexpectedly be teleported up a floor.
Players can determine the floor number by keeping an eye on the species of the monsters and the shining circles of light around the room’s central column.
NB: Actually, the concept of "floors" is not very accurate; it is used here for easier description.
Floor 1: One ring of green light, monsters: Cosmic Scout
Floor 2: One ring of green light, monsters: Cosmic Scout
Floor 3: Two rings of green light, monsters: Cosmic Scout, Cosmic Watcher
Floor 4: Three rings of green light, monsters: Cosmic Scout, Cosmic Watcher
Floor 5: Demon Prince
Floor 6: Three rings of yellow light, monsters: Cosmic Priest
Floor 7: Three rings of yellow light, monsters: Cosmic Priest, Cosmic Lord
Floor 8: Two rings of yellow light, monsters: Cosmic Priest, Cosmic Lord
Floor 9: One ring of yellow light, monsters: Cosmic Priest, Cosmic Lord
Floor 10: Ranku
Boss: Demon Prince
He is the head of the monsters who are guarding the Tower of Infinitum at Darion's order; in the realm of demons he counts as a high ranking noble.
Players can encounter the Demon Prince when moving from the fourth floor to the fifth floor. In the area where the Demon Prince resides, players must avoid being in non-combat status for a longer time, or the entire group might be teleported back to fourth floor. When the Boss is there, attack him at once to avoid being teleported back; when the Boss has not yet spawned, you have all the time in the world.
The Demon Prince will use his Ultimate Defense skill when his HP decreases. Thereupon he will summon a self-exploding monster called Fiend that creates quite some damage over the area around it. The Demon Prince will use the skill Imbue Dark Seed, which causes one’s HP to decrease immediately. This debuff can cause great harm if it is not removed. However, it can be removed with Cleanse or Cure Dark Seed.
A Teleportation Cubic will appear that teleports the players to floor six after the Demon Prince is defeated.
A monster summoned by Beleth at the same time as Darion, according to a contract the content of which seems to be related to the invasion of Hellbound by Beleth.
Players can encounter Ranku when moving from the ninth floor to the tenth floor. You must avoid being in non-combat status for long in the area where Ranku appears, or the entire group might be teleported back to the ninth floor. There is the same rule as before: When the Boss is there, attack him at once to avoid being teleported back; when the Boss has not yet spawned, you have all the time in the world.
Ranku will appear together with four minions - Ranku’s Scapegoats. After the battle starts, the HP of Ranku’s Scapegoats will decrease constantly (similar to the Transfer Pain skill of summoners). When Ranku’s Scapegoats die, a monster called Eidolon will appear. Its Dark-backed P.Atk., especially at close distance, is very high, so it’s necessary to maintain Ranku’s Scapegoats’ HP while attacking Ranku. However, the number of Ranku’s Scapegoats will start to increase after some time, so players need to kill Ranku before that.
(On Taiwan servers we encountered no increase in the number of Ranku’s Scapegoats - it stayed at four).
The Transportation Cubic that appears after Ranku’s defeat will teleport the players to the exit of the Tower of Infinitum.
These two Raid Bosses are not really dangerous and can be defeated by moderately strong players. The problem here are the minions. The Demon Prince’s minion, the Fiend, causes high damage when it explodes; the Healer(s) of the party should pay attention to their team mates' HP bar. When fighting Ranku, one or two Healers should pay attention to the Scapegoats’ HP - don’t let them die. It’s actually very easy to fight your way through the Tower of Infinitum; only one person is needed to attack a monster. Also remember to pick up the quest "Matra’s Curiosity" from the Dwarf of that name at the oasis behind the Outer Gate of the Steel Citadel. If you can obtain the two blueprints from Demon Prince and Ranku and bring them Matras, you won’t need to fight your way through the Tower of Infinitum a second time. Instead you can search out the NPC Deltuva (located in front of a cave directly after entering Steel Citadel’s Outer Gate and going to the left) and teleport directly into Tully's Workshop.
