Overview

Valour Rift in a location within the Rift Plane. Hunters collect Gauntlet Elixirs while arming String Cheese when they first arrive, using them to exchange for/ craft Gauntlet String Cheese. After stockpiling sufficient Gauntlet String Cheese, hunters can enter the tower. While doing so, there are 6 different augmentations one can activate in exchange for gold and materials looted from within the tower. The Ultimate Umbra augmentation is needed in order to encounter The Total Eclipse, which drops Core of the Eclipse. Doing a run without Ultimate Umbra, Hunters will instead encounter Shade of the Eclipse. As hunters attempt more runs, their augmentations will improve alongside their Speed, Sync and Siphon. This helps make subsequent runs more manageable.

Floors

There are 8 floor types titled:

Every Eclipse floor has no steps

Floors 1-7 have got 20 steps each

Floors 9-15 have got 30 steps each

HUD

The HUD tracks the Following Items:

Gauntlet String cheese can be bought or crafted directly from the HUD.

While inside the tower, Hunters will see their player icon in a circular crop on steps headed upwards. Circular icons of in-game friends can be seen too. Record-high steps for Hunters as well as their friends can also be seen. Record marking are shown with a square crop of one's icon Clicking on the magnifying glass icon, an expanded view can be seen. There is an option to retreat. A Hunter's progress through each floor and to the next Shade of the Eclipse or The Total Eclipse can also be seen on the top centre of the HUD.

Upgrades

On the right, 3 separate stats are tracked:

  • Hunter's Speed - Is how many steps you take after a successful catch in the tower. Upgrade to increase the number of steps you take with each catch.
  • Hunter's Sync - Keeps you aligned with the tower, allowing for more hunts before you fall out of phase. Determines how well you stay in sync with the tower, increasing the number of hunts can you take before falling out of phase.
  • Hunter's Siphon - Aids in syncing you with the tower after each Eclipse catch, increasing the number of hunts left. Extends the number of hunts remaining everytime the Eclipse is caught.

Mice

Cheese Preference and Loot

All mice require some variety of String Cheese. However, Terrified Adventurer Mouse, who gives double progress, is only attracted to Gauntlet String Cheese. Elixir Maker Mouse, who drops larger amounts of Gauntlet Elixir, is attracted more frequently to Magical String Cheese than other String Cheese.

Mouse Locator

  • First run refers to the first time Hunters ascend the tower after entering it. Re-entering a tower after retreating or being kicked out will result in a new run upon entrance.

Hunting Strategy

Location-Specific Effects

Hunting tips by Larry

This place within the Rift Plane is an especially twisted version of our reality mirroring the King's Gauntlet. The Valour Rift Gauntlet Tower is slightly out of phase with our timeline and appears to endlessly stretch into a starry abyss with no end in sight. Navigating such a perplexing place is sure to cause a headache!

It's a good thing you're handy with a Rift Chronometer since it's just the thing you need to sync yourself into the timeline of the tower to be able to climb it. After entering, each mouse you capture will reveal the way forward, advancing you upwards. Just be quick -- You'll only remain in sync with the tower's timeline for so long before the steps fade away, sending you back to the tower's entrance.

While inside the tower, aim to climb as high up as you can. The mice inside protect valuable treasure with a greater cache of loot on each subsequent floor. The resources you recover will help upgrade your abilities in this strange place to grant you more time in the tower, advance further with each catch, and even siphon energy from the powerful Eclipse Mouse!

However, temper your initial exploration. Before ascending this bizarre tower, you'll likely want to collect Gauntlet Elixirs and exchange it at the Cheese Shoppe here for Gauntlet String Cheese. This unique flavour of bait can attract Terrified Adventurer mice within the tower. These mice have been navigating the tower for a long time and capturing one will reveal some shortcuts, further accelerating your progress!

That's all my research has revealed so far, MouseHunter. With the tower appearing to be infinitely tall, there's sure to be many more secrets to uncover once inside. Prepare your camp site and settle in for the long haul. This place will likely take quite a while to fully explore!

Unlock new trapsWithin the Valour Rift stands an endlessly tall tower slightly out of sync with our timeline. Using knowledge learned from your Rift Chronometer, you must syncronize yourself with the tower's timeline for as long as you can to recover valuable loot and artifacts from within the Rift Gauntlet. Will you be able to manifest an Ultimate Umbra and summon the Total Eclipse?
