Introducing Hethran Badges
Feb 3rd, 2017
We have another new feature coming up that we want to introduce to you today. We will be adding a series of new quests that can only be accessed through a special type of item, the Hethran Badge, found in specific maps.
Keep reading for a preview of how you will be able use this new feature, and remember that, as this is expected to arrive only in a future major content update, some details may have been changed by the time we bring it over to iTOS.
Q. What are Hethran Badges?
Hethran Badges are a type of symbol badges named after a former head of the Kedoran Merchant Alliance, and like most items in TOS, they can be used by right-clicking them from your inventory. Using Hethran Badges gives you access to exclusive quests that you can complete as many times as you want.
Q. What level do I need to be to use them?
There are two types of Hethran Badges: Lv1 and Lv2. Lv1 Hethran Badges can be used by characters starting at level 260, while Lv2 badges can only be used by characters of level 300 or higher.
Q. How do you use a Hethran Badge?
1) First, move to Klaipeda, Orsha or Fedimian (the badges can only be used in town).
2) Go to the Item tab on your inventory and right-click your Hethran Badge. It will be under the Consumable category.
3) A random quest will begin, depending on the level of the badge you used.
Note that you can’t play two Hethran Badge quests of the same level simultaneously. If you’re playing a quest obtained from a Lv1 badge, you will need to complete it in order to get another quest from a different Lv1 badge. You’re allowed to have one Lv1 quest and one Lv2 quest in progress at the same time, however.
Also, there is no limit on the number of Hethran Badge quests you can complete in a day, so you are free to use as many badges as you like.
▲ The quest starts automatically after you use a Hethran Badge from your inventory.
▲ The badges can only be used by characters of levels 260/300 or higher and in town.
Q. Can the badge quests be played with a party?
Yes! Once you use a Hethran Badge, nearby party members will also be able to accept the quest and play together, even if they don’t have a badge themselves.
However, if another party member already has one Hethran Badge quest of the same level as yours in progress, your party will not be able to accept your quest.
Q. Can Hethran Badges be combined like monster cards or gems?
Yes. You can combine two Lv1 Hethran Badges to create one Lv2 Hethran Badge!
Q. Where can I get some badges?
You can obtain Hethran Badges from a series of maps with recommended levels ranging from 261 to 327. The chances of obtaining a badge vary from map to map, however.
Below is the list of maps where you can obtain Hethran Badges, organized by drop rate. On maps with the “highest drop rate”, the chances of obtaining a badge are 4 times higher than the maps with the “lowest drop rate”, so keep this in mind if you’re looking to collect some badges.
