    Snow War Mechanics

    Snow War is different from the most other mazes, but has similar to Chaos mechanics. Snow War is also redesigned compared to the official versions of Tales of Pirates Online.

    Character Mechanics

    • Inside Snow War there is a damage cut: characters deal less damage.
    • Some character skills work differently. For example, it is impossible to use the skill of herbalists "Revival". And skill of voyagers "Conch ray" has a chance to stun the enemy, etc. More details can be found in the skill descriptions in the guides for the corresponding classes.
    • Unlike Chaos, characters can enter Snow War being in party, and also can create party in Snow War.
    • After death, the character is immediately revived at the spawn point.


    In the Snow War, there is a division of monsters and chests into colors, similar to Chaos. The drop is identical to the drop in Chaos. Monsters (except for the BD wave) of all types appear in SW: red, green, purple and blue. There is also a black version, due to the fact that monsters will only drop a fragment of the same color as the killed monster. For example, if you killed the Red Phyllis Swordsman, then you can only get a red crystal. Purple chests and Blue monsters (with the exception of BD wave) can only be killed by magic classes, since these monsters have greatly increased PR and def.


    Snow War has 9 waves. Waves are launched the moment the first player enters Snow War. The wave lasts 5 minutes. At the end of the wave, the surviving monsters disappear and the next wave appears.

    • 1st wave. In each city, 4 chests of 2 types out of 4 possible appear:
      • Green
      • Purple (magic atk)
      • Red
      • Purple
    • 2nd wave. By analogy with the 1st wave, 4 chests of 2 types out of 4 possible, and weak monsters appear in each city.
    • 3rd wave. Medium monsters.
    • 4th wave. 4 chests of all 4 types appear in each city.
    • 5th wave. Strong monsters (ex NG wave)
    • 6th and 7th waves.BD waves.
    • 8th and 9th waves. If there are exactly 10 players or less, then the boss of the snow war appears. If there are more than 10 players, then the BD waves continue.

    The color of each subsequent BD wave is not similar to the previous ones. That is, if there are always more than 10 players, then you will be able to fight with BD monsters of all 4 colors. In addition, in each subsequent BD wave of monsters there will be more and more monsters.

    Boss of Snow War: Lv85 Eternal Medusa


    The boss is a dangerous opponent with many nasty skills. The boss moves very slowly and has a low attack speed, but deals significant magic damage.

    The last survivor

    At the 55th minute, depending on the number of living players remaining in Snow War, rewards are given. If there are two or more living players left, then no one receives a reward. If there is only one living player left, then character receives Chaos chest, by opening which you can get valuable items.

    Events of Snow War

    Depending on the day of the week, an event occurs in Snow War that changes the mechanics of the map.
