New to Tower of Fantasy is the Artificial Island zone, a smaller but still expansive area filled with Nuclei, activities, a new boss, and plenty of secrets. Knowing all of that, you may be wondering how to get there.
The Artificial Island isn’t available to everyone immediately, and you’ll need to spend some significant time in the base game before you can access the new area. These limitations are for the best, though; the Artificial Island hosts some of the harder challenges available in the game. Here’s what you need to know.
How to Access the Artificial Island
You need to meet two core requirements to access the Artificial Island.
- Progress to Chapter 2 in the story campaign.
- Reach Wanderer Level 50. As leveling is time-gated, this will take you some time. See our how-to-level-up fast guide for additional help there.
Once you’ve achieved both of those milestones, head to the Banges Dock you traveled to at the start of Chapter 2. When you make it there:
- Head to your Rewards Tab.
- Select Artificial Island on the left sidebar.
This will pull up the “Kalador’s Invitation” screen. Click Go to get directions to speak to Kalador, president of Banges and creator of the Artificial Island, near his airship.
Head up to the airship and to the Island, where Kalador will walk you through a short quest chain. He’ll introduce the various construction sites that will make up your base and then send you to a nearby Hyena camp. Oddly, you don’t have to fight the Hyena enemies there, merely reach their camp.
Return to Kalador at this point for a little more tutorial, and then you’ll be free to explore with impunity.
Note that you don’t have to complete Kalador’s side quest to actually participate in any Artificial Island activities. Still, the markers won’t disappear from your HUD until you complete the quest chain. If you can stand to have an extra blue dot on your screen at all times, then don’t worry about these latter steps, but they’re an excellent introduction to the new systems.
How to Leave the Artificial Island
When you want to leave the Artificial Island, you’ll need to return to your base and interact with the airship there. There is no way to fast travel between it and Asperia, so be sure to grab the Spacerift near the ship.
Now you’ve got access to the latest content in the global client of Tower of Fantasy. There are dozens of additional hours of farming, raiding, and progression on the Artificial Island, so take your time exploring and continuing your progression.
