How to Unlock the Shadespire Tower

Before taking on the tower and its challenges, you must complete a set of requirements. Below is a list of all the requirements for unlocking the Shadespire Tower

  • Complete the Shushire Main Questline and Reach Item Level 302
  • Complete the Gear Honing Guide
  • Complete the Tower Guide Quest

Even though the Tower is unlocked when you reach Level 50, you must first achieve Item Level 302 with your character to participate in tower activities. This is because each floor of the Shadespire Tower has a minimum Item Level requirement, which starts at Item Level 302 on Floor 1.

Aside from the Item Level requirement, you must complete two Guide Quests in the Gear Honing and Tower Guide Quests. You can find these quests in the Quest Journal (J on your keyboard)

Shadespire Tower Mechanics

The Shadespire Tower has 50 floors, with each floor featuring unique enemies and challenges.

Progressing through each Floor in the tower is straightforward, only requiring you to clear a previous floor to move on to the next. You cannot skip floors you haven’t completed, but you have unlimited attempts for every floor.

Between floors, you also have the option to keep progressing through subsequent floors or stop and quit at the current floor. It is worth noting, however, that the Item Level requirement increases every 5 floors, so you might have to come back another time to progress through the latter floors.
