Characters must be at least level 100 to visit the new region, which includes the imposing city of Alexandria, the Desert of Storms and Cloud, the Valley of Kings, and two massive dungeons known as the Tomb of the Pharaoh and the Temple.

Players can choose from three difficulty levels before entering the Tomb of the Pharaoh with their party, and may visit up to twice a day to hunt for the powerfuleleventh-grade weapons and armor that reside within its walls. The Temple, meanwhile, is an instanced dungeon for characters level 105 and up where PvP combat is always permitted. Be prepared to fight off both vicious monsters and competing players if you decide to venture into its depths.

Legend V also offers players a brand-new game system, Set Items. Gold and Silver Coins earned in Alexandria’s dungeons can be traded to merchants for unique Set Items that share a seal and provide big bonuses when worn together as a full outfit. Between these and new eleventh-grade weapons like the Reaper Ghost Sword and the Angel Breaker, every would-be hero should be well prepared for the trials and adventures that await them in Legend V: Heroes of Alexandria!
