Overview

Valour Rift is a location within the Rift Plane. Hunters collect Gauntlet Elixir 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. Before entering the tower, there are 6 different augmentations one can activate in exchange for gold and materials looted from within the tower. The Ultimate Umbra augmentation is required for encountering The Total Eclipse, which drops Core of the Eclipse. Otherwise, Shade of the Eclipse is encountered instead. As hunters attempt more runs and reach higher floors, the augmentations are unlocked and they can upgrade their Speed, Sync and Siphon. This helps make subsequent runs more manageable.

Floors

There are 8 floor types, based on the original King's Gauntlet.

Every Eclipse floor has one step. Only either Shade of the Eclipse Mouse or The Total Eclipse can be encountered.
Every set of eight floors adds 10 steps to the floors.
Floors 1-7 has 20 steps each.
Floors 9-15 has 30 steps each.
Floors 17-23 has 40 steps each and onwards.

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 indicate their current step while square icon indicates their highest step reached. On browser, an expanded view can be seen by clicking the magnifying glass icon. 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.

Upgrades are cumulative and permanent. They can be purchased inside or outside tower. Its effect is applied immediately upon purchase.

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!

End the Total Eclipse

Within 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?
