How to Complete Astra Ruin A-01 Dungeon in Tower Of Fantasy
We’ve all heard of the apocalypse where the Earth will be destroyed and humanity will have to find another home, but it actually happened in fancy tower. The game is started planet aida, where humanity escaped to avoid extinction. There are many secrets for Wanderers to explore in this land.
There are several requirements when it comes to exploring a certain area and ruins are one of them. Astra is the first large area in the game that contains three ruins. You just need to clear all three in easy mode to keep progressing, but completing them at higher levels gives you more chests and additional rewards.
How to Completely Clear Ruin A-01 in Easy Mode
As you progress through the main story, you will come across the first ruin when you rendezvous in Franz with Shirli. At the moment, you won’t be able to enter the ruin, but you will come back in the future to complete it on easy mode. You must do this to advance in the story.
Since this ruin is required, it’s not that hard to beat on easy mode. However, there are two new chests in each mode that give you lots of goodies, and finding them can be quite difficult. In every ruin, the easy mode has two chests, normal has four, and hard has six.
Both easy mode chests are in the same position even in normal mode, with two new chest slots. Similarly, hard mode also has two new chest slots.
Once you enter the ruin on easy mode, you will have a short dialogue with Mi-a and another robot. After that you will be left to explore the ruins on your own. The first thing you’ll notice are some explosive barrels in front of a vulnerable wall.
Here you will also need to defeat some hyenas to clear this starting area. Once that’s done, you can simply shoot an explosive barrel with a ranged weapon or pick them up and throw them against the vulnerable wall. This will open the path to the next area.
Before moving on to the next area, look to the right, where you will see a small tile with yellow cracks above. This is where you will find your first easy mode chest. Pick up an explosive barrel and throw it at the tile. Once the tile is broken, the first chest will be visible to you and you can claim it.
Now head to the next area and you will need to defeat other hyenas to clear the room. You can throw another explosive barrel towards them to get rid of some of their health. Once you defeat them, the second chest in easy mode will appear in the middle of the door to the next room.
After claiming it, simply cross the bridge ahead and defeat some more Hyenas in the next room. This is the last room you need to clear before the boss battle. You can use the barrels scattered around this room to deal more damage to enemiesjust make sure you don’t hurt yourself in the process.
Once this room is cleared, another door will open in the far right, leading you to Hyenatron. This is the boss you will need to kill to clear the ruin. He has up to three stacks of health and can easily deal a lot of damage to your character.
If you attack its weak point enough, the boss will be disabled for a little while, during which time you can mount it and constantly stab it to deal a ton of damage in a very short time. After defeating Hyenatron, the final room will open containing the release and your final rewards.
You can also use the Missile Barrage relic to destroy vulnerable tiles on the map. But, this has a cooldown, and you can’t use it multiple times at once, so you’ll want to save this relic to deal a lot of damage to the boss.
How to Completely Clear Ruin A-01 in Normal Mode
Enemies and rooms across different difficulties remain the same in a particular ruin, but their levels increase. In the normal mode of A-01, you will face level 25 enemies. As mentioned above, you’ll also find the two chests you have in easy mode in this one, in exactly the same places.
For the first chest in normal mode, you need to head to the room just before the main boss bedroom. The one in which you fight a group of hyenas. Here you will see a vulnerable tile with yellow cracks at the back of the room right next to some explosive barrels.
You already know the drill, buy this chest and then turn around to find the second chest in the same room. You will notice that the main statue next to the wall also has yellow cracks, so you can destroy it to get your second normal chest, making it four chests including those in the same place as easy mode.
How to Completely Clear Ruin A-01 in Hard Mode
You can find the first hard mode chest at the very beginning of the ruin. There’s a wall to your left, above it that’s vulnerable, and there are also some barrels right next to it. All you gotta do is shoot those barrels with a ranged weapon and you’ll unlock the chest.
The main problem actually comes from reaching it. You cannot use your Jetpack in the Ruins, so the only way to reach this height is to use the Omnium Hand Cannon Relic. You acquire this relic by defeating another ruin along the storyline.
Then you’ll find all four chests in the same location as normal mode here as well, bringing the total to five. For the last chest, look on the left side of the stairs in the last room before the boss room, and you will find another vulnerable tile right next to the statue.
After collecting the entire chest and beating Hyenatron again, you’ll completely clear Ruin A-01 on every difficulty.
