Cube of Fate

The Cube of Fate is a solo dungeon (shared instance) that you can enter starting at level 40. There are 50 rooms in the puzzle dungeon, each with it's own unique challenge to complete. Once you complete a room's challenge, you will receive a random six sided die that will move you forward throughout the dungeon. The objective is to reach room 50, however if you fail a challenge or are killed along the way, you will respawn back in room 1 with the option to either exit the Cube, or start the puzzle all over again.

While the Cube can be very frustrating at times, it can also be very rewarding. You could spend a few million coins and come out empty handed, or you could spend 100k and come out with a few million coins, 20 Mysterious Chips, and over 350,000 XP! It's completely random, though patience and persistence will certainly help.

You can only do this quest once per day (well, on the days you can afford it).

Requirements
* Level 40+ to enter
* 1 Badge of Honor, which you can get once per day from the Adventure Assistants/Khatru Pup in each of the 6 major cities
* 10-30 Mirage Celestones. Each Celestone can be exchanged for 2 Dice Tickets, and each room requires 1 Dice Ticket to begin the challenge. Some rooms have very difficult challenges, and can be bypassed by paying additional Dice Tickets
* 400-600k. Several rooms require 100-200k coins to pass, although usually you are given a chance to win additional coins back
* Patience. Some days it's going to be really easy, and some days it will be impossible to finish. Understand that going in, the Cube is completely random

Rewards
* XP! At level 70-79, it's worth 350,000 XP and 70,000 spirit IF you reach room 50, at 80+ it's 400k/80k
* Money. Several rooms have a chance to win either 1 million or 5 million coins
* Mysterious Chips. Up to 20 per run (5 per room, 4 chip rooms), can be traded for Legendary Molds at the Mysterious Vendor in Thousand Streams City
* ??????. At 80+ you get a chance to enter the Cube Lottery, but it's still not translated into English, so I'm unsure what the rewards are though database sites do show some legendary gear that comes from the lottery
* Pages of Fate. At level 90+, you don't get a XP reward for completing the Cube of Fate, but you do get pages that you can trade for your Demon/Sage skill books

Mysterious Chips
If you visit the Mysterious Merchant in Thousand Streams City, left of the city elder, you can trade chips + coins for legendary molds and items. It looks like most of the molds available come from FB 69-89, and some of the pricing seems a little skewed. You can also trade chips and coins for legendary materials from Twilight Temple, Lunar Glade, and the Warsoul (end game) weapons.

Decided I'll add a few more notes for various rooms, as the cube guides are kinda vague for most rooms. If I didn't mention the room below, it's very self-explanatory.

PREPARATION: This is important if you are serious about beating cube. Bring along 1 Bully Card + 2 (or even more) Robber Cards. You'll see why you need multiple Robber's below at room 18 and 20. Also bring at least 30-50 Dice Tickets. Finally, also bring at least 500k coin (2.5mil coin if you plan to also do Rooms 51-60). The more you bring of any of the above, the safer. Finally, you must have a HP charm. Optional: +speed increase apothecary items.


Room 6 - If you don't like to solo this guy, the corner you zone in at is "safe", you can wait till someone else enters, but it's a gamble how long you wait.

Room 7 - It is always the far left two.

Room 9 - Soon as you enter, jet for nearest corner and kill the mobs that agro'd on you asap. Just hug that corner and heal yourself. 9 times out of 10 mobs won't wander close enough to agro anymore.

Room 14 - Wait at the entrance to gank the next guy. But this is so early in the cube, your time is better spent just suiciding and starting over. Special note: if you have the bomb from room 10, you might as well wait the time for it in this room as you'll have to wait anyways if you suicide, due to quest bug.

Room 16 - Veno's can kill this boss. Not QUITE sure what level golem you need, but golems can handle it at some point. If you're grouped with a veno, wait to see if they can help you thru.

Room 18 - Glad you brought a spare Robber, eh?

Room 20 - This is why you bring 2 or more Robbers. If you get "Life", you advance to Room 25. If you get "Death" you go back to 18... and need another Robber card.

Room 25 - Not too difficult. The small spots not surrounded by trap circles are safe. But they are staggered enough to be able to wing it on thru.

Room 27 - Listed from left to right, two rows, one thru five.... 2-2, 4-4, 5-4 are the possible safe paths. They aren't ALL safe always, you must test them still. Turn your in-game volume up to max, and turn monitor volume up. To listen, you stand about 15-20 meters away and pan the camera around... then inch a tad closer and pan camera around. Do this until you pass thru first one and test the 2nd one also. If the first monster of both lane 2 and lane 4 are "bad", then 5-4 is the path.

Room 28 - Posted above in this thread is the automatic answers for Blue and White. Good luck if you get Red.

Room 30 - You can probably get by with same tactic as room 9. However, the monsters that respawn will most likely draw agro again and you'll have to kill it. The other tactic is to run circles in the room with monsters chasing you. All the while using hp pots. If you have 3k+ hp, I believe lvl 70+ pots will cover you, if the monsters don't land hits. If you are rich or had the foresight to save all that event food from the Jolly event, Multiflavor Jiaozi makes this room almost trivial.

Room 34 - Same as 14, you can wait at the entrance and gank the next poor sap to come in if you want. If you are a cleric or barbarian, a good tactic is to wait in the opposite corner (don't agro the center mob yet), and when someone enters, you set off the center mob. Barbarians have the hp to "ride" out the damage with charms, and clerics can heal of course. By the time the other person realizes what is going on, their charm has already ticked and you can be on them already. Veno pets get eaten up by the aoe and anyone with under 4k hp not using event food will die to the aoe before their charm refreshes.

Room 38 - MY most hated room. Keep an eye on the roaming mobs always. Once the coast is clear and the traps have just finished, run along the right wall to the next corner. If you have it, use your apothecary items... or even better, Holy Path genie. Once you get to that corner, HUG it close. It's a safe spot from traps and mobs. Once your apothecary item cools down and/or your genie regenerates energy... make the last leg of the journey. (Special note: I am 9 for 9 passing since learning this)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgmAr8pL2NE&feature=related

Room 40 - Honestly, I'd open this one always.

Room 43 - Same as Room 16, just more hitpoints.

Room 44 - Before you accept the bomb, be prepared to shave every second off the rest of the run. It's not far, but the final rooms are all a little time-consuming. Rule of thumb, budget 90sec for room 48, 15sec for room 50 (to run to the npc and turn off bomb), 15sec for room 49 (or more if you choose to try to get some exp), and 140sec for room 47 (factoring in accepting the quest, running, and the lag at end and rolling die to next room). That right there is 4.5 minutes, so if you land in 45 after 44, you might as well assume the cube hates you and will make you more unlucky and keep rolling 1's.... and if you do, you need to budget 5.5min max for room 45.

Room 45 - If you have the bomb in here, and are not a veno, log out and onto an alt and find some friends who are running cube. When (if) they land in room 45, log in and team up to get you through. Herc veno @ 85, burning my ass off, I can get it killed in 5.5min. Keeping in mind pet damage isn't "nerfed" on bosses, I don't think non-veno's can do this boss under 10min. However, if you have no bomb on you, this boss is easy street, as his aoe is much much slower than Room 6.

Room 47 - Same as Rooms 9 and 30, but much tougher. Most people use the "kite" method. However, if you are not a barbarian or cleric, or have 5k+ hp (maybe more), then you must have Multiflavor jiaozi event food. Even then, you need at least 3.5k hp, 4k to be comfortable. Soon as you drop in, start your food use and try to gather all the mobs with as few hitting you as possible. Once gathered, kite em in a circle and pray your food is timed well.


Room 52 - If you are not a venomancer with Herc and level 83+, do not attempt this. Level 80-82 herc veno can do this with some good channel gear. 1 bonus Lottery Coin for completing.

Room 53 - Before you accept the quest, wait until the ball is a good bit separated from the defenders. Once it is, run in, "tag" the ball, and run into the goal, to the back. If any defenders agro'd just move toward the back of the goal and they'll die when they follow in. Their range attack does about 2-2.5k damage. After one goal, just run back out without agro'ing and get the whistle and turn it in. +speed items make this trivial.

Room 54 - Jackpot = 1 Lottery Coin. Also can win 330k coin.

Room 55 - 3rd prize is 330k coin, 2nd prize is 660k coin. Not sure 1st prize... yet.

Room 56 - Once you accept quest, just run through random portals until you find the brother with the flag over his head. Once you find him, you want to return back to Room A. Use the chart above like this... Check your coordinate to find your current room. From that room, you want to go to room E, which leads to room B, which is the only room that has a portal to room A.

Room 57 - Just run along the outter walls until you find the NPC you need for each turn-in. Red ones take off about 2k hitpoints give or take 100 or so. +speed items will help here, as you only get 5min.

Room 58 - This room is somewhat similar to rooms 14 and 34. You are presented with a Cube Tag, but need TWO to continue. So now you have options... 1. You can pay Do-all cards to continue to next room. 2. You can wait until another player enters and kill them to be presented with the second Cube Tag. Or 3. You can port back to the entrance of the cube and stash your Cube Tag on a mule. The Cube Tag is similar to the robber/bully cards in that it'll disappear if you trash the quest with it in your inventory, or if you leave the cube with it in your inventory.

Option 3 is obviously the most viable as 10 do-all cards is rather steep (it might actually be 16), and I don't think Dreamweaver's population is strong enough to have enough regulars coming that far into cube. So you save the token... Here's the challenge. The Cube Tag disappears any time you die with it in your inventory. That means you must make it ALLLLL the way back to Room 58 without dying, because you cannot just pick it up off your mule any time along the way. The good news... if you turn in 2 Cube Tags (completing room 58) you automatically win the cube and are sent to room 60. ie, no chance to get sent to room 59 and lose more coins.

Room 59 - No idea how far back you are sent or how random. But it is 660k to continue without being sent back.

lifted from mayhem site hope it ok if not oooppppssssss to late Wink
