Vera is the name of the new cyberpunk-themed area that will unlock within the game, bringing with it new environments, mounts, monsters, weapons and much more. The Desert Gobby makes up the main area of the expansion, an irradiated wilderness with the cyberpunk hub of Mirroria found in the heart of the desert. Tower of Fantasy players will be excited to find new instances, raids and legendary bosses that they can take on with their friends and “crews” that bring new missions, events and progression rewards.

The Vera area was under the jurisdiction of The Seventh District of Helgaard before the Cataclysm, and lost contact with the main Plane after the Cataclysm. The environment is dominated by the desert Gobby, and the overall climate is hot and dry. Due to the failure of its local “Vera Phantom Tower” (an original energy repeater) after the Cataclysm, its space-time dimension cannot be calibrated on the main Plane, nor can it obtain a stable supply of original energy. The intensity of the original energy radiation in the area is gradually decreasing, except for some heavily polluted areas. Although most of the surface environment can be used for human activities, the majority of people in Vera live in the “Mirroria”.

In Gobby Desert, a wasteland world where resources are exhausted, the environment is on the verge of collapse, and the soil is gradually desertified, people still live in the desert and compete for extremely limited resources. Surface monsters are dominated by natural creatures, with mutant species infected with bacteria in heavily contaminated areas. Most of inhabitants of Gobby deserts are very dangerous and aggressive.

The main building of Hykros District 7, “Mirroria”, has an abandoned “magic tower” at its internal core, around which an urban structure is built. Its main facade is wrapped in countless solar panels, and only the spire can receive natural light.

Frigg, a new playable character, will also be introduced with this expansion. A quiet and decisive soldier who gets her work done cleanly and quickly. She has her own take on life, and often thinks about the meaning of it when she’s not busy eliminating her enemies. One of the Angels of Clemency, her body was largely modified with living metal to stop radiation without a suppressor. She is a loyal servant of the Sage and carries out his commands without question. As a commander, she has the right to command the Heirs of Aida’s forces, but instead chooses to act alone most of the time.
