ToFS Zone Overview

Before we start talking about quest lines and mobs in ToFS it is important to provide a brief overview for how ToFS is laid out as it can be very confusing to the newcomer. Please take the time to read this, as it will save you a lot of frustration.

A well-geared group might clear all of the Heroic ToFS zones in 12 hours; if you're new to the Tower plan on 20 - 24 hours. Because the zone's eight floors are gathered into clusters of three floors each, you will not actually have to play 20 hours straight to conquer the Tower.

When you zone into ToFS the zone will stay active for two to three days. This is important to note because if you do not complete a zone cluster's three zones before the timer expires you will have to start the entire section over from scratch quests and all.

Access

The two most common ways to access ToFS are:

  • Clicking the Mirror at the base of Tower of Frozen Shadows in the Great Divide -1118.67, -526.54, -1722.53
  • Clicking a Mirror of the Shadows (house item). You will earn one of these as you progress through ToFS, but if you're impatient you can probably find one on the broker or use a friend's.

To access ToFS right-click the Mirror and choose "Gaze into the Mirror". You'll be presented with several zoning options, which we're calling "zone clusters". Each cluster is made up of three floors of the tower, and each floor is its own zone. This is to break up a long and difficult area into manageable chunks.

The first time you zone to ToFS you'll have very few options: the list will grow as you progress. Floor zones will also appear after you complete them. The first zone cluster you will zone into is Tower of Frozen Shadows: Shadowed Corridors: and you will find yourself standing in the Submergence: First Floor zone.

Mirrors

Each zone has an entrance mirror and an exit mirror. The entrance mirror is the one you entered that floor on, the exit mirror is how you progress to the next floor zone. To get to the exit mirror you will have to clear all of the NPC's and named mobs on each floor. The floors are laid out so that you have to fight the named mobs in order. Many named mobs are behind locked doors that you can not open until you kill all of the required preceding mobs. When you kill the last named mob on that floor you will then have access to the exit mirror and can unlock access to the next floor zone. Once you have cleared the three floor zones in that cluster you will have access to the next zone cluster and its three floors.

Progressing and completing quests on each floor will allow you to collect the six mirrors necessary to unlock the Tower's final encounter. The mirrors you will need are:

After completing the eight Floors of the Heroic version you will have access to the Tower of Frozen Shadows Epic x2 version and will need to progress through 8 floors.

Note: The mob encounters are tougher and different between the Heroic and Epic Versions so you will not be doing the exact same thing over again when you start the Epic x2 version.
