Mini Land[edit | edit source]

Nostale allow players to have their own Mini Land: a place where they can decorate with objects such as a house, lamp posts, trees, etc. It is also where the players' Warehouse are located. Friends can visit any player's Mini Land. There are four Mini Games that can be played in Mini Lands. Mini Games reward players according to the score they obtain and use up some of the player's Production points. These points are recharged every day. For every reward the player chooses, independent of its level, players lose 100 Production points. In this fashion Mini Games also lose from its Durability when a reward is taken. Owners of a Mini game must pay gold or buy coupons from the virtual shop to recharge said durability. Owners may also "harvest" rewards from the Mini Games equal to the level the player chose. All Mini Games have upgraded versions which yield better and more rarer rewards. All rewards are material based, in other words used to create/fashion other objects. Then through recipes, Nostale offers ways for players with the afore mentioned materials, gathered from loot, Mini Games or TS treasure boxes, to create things such as boots, weapons, upgraded Mini Games, special potions, etc.You can also receive mats for upgrading Sp cards, such as FM.

Time Stones[edit | edit source]

Time Stones are missions within the game that can be done by a player and his or her party privately. There are level requirements for each Time Stone and they are needed to progress in the game's story. Each mission has a time limit for the players to complete it in. Players may receive the basic reward(s) that are obtained by chance by clicking on one of the chests (automatically if it is only one reward), a Special Award (obtainable once), and a Bonus Reward. Depending on how well players do on the mission and the amount of time that is left, the players score will increase, and they can achieve a "record" on the Timestone for other players to beat (The player's name and score are listed in the upper right hand corner.)

Land of Death[edit | edit source]

LoD for short, Land of Death is a feature that can be used by any Family member. The gate to the Land of Death is located at Sunset Cliff Edge in Mt. Krem. This feature features a combat system where a family takes on lvl 70+ demons located in the Land of Death. Many uncommon to rare items may be dropped by the demons. A special item given out is called Fountain of Savior, FoS for short. It is used to revive yourself to full health directly where you're standing when you died. If you choose not to use it you're sent back out of Land of Death. It is suggested to only use Fountain of Savior when Dark Horn comes. For once he comes, a Lv. 85 fire element demon with powerful attacks, the gate closes and you cannot re-enter for a certain period of time, depending on the version of Nostale. Dark Horn comes when the clock hits a certain time( varies by version ). Once the clock hits this time, wait a few more seconds, for he doesn't come immediately. He continues to come every 4 minutes for 1 minute for a whole hour. It is not required to kill Dark Horn, because it is very hard to and only few family's have done so. Dark Horn will continue to come until the clock hits a specific time( again, varies ). Once it hits this time, LoD closes and everyone is kicked out.
