The Daily Dungeon is a new feature we've been working hard to implement in update 2.3, and we wanted to take a few moments to tell you a little more about it. This Dungeon will allow you to acquire our new Legendary Gear items, which you can read more about in this post: http://dashquest.tinytitanstudios.com/2016/04/legend-gear.html
Each day, we'll rotate one of three unique Dungeons. Dungeons are made up of several floors, similar to stages in Endless or Story Mode, all of which can feature conditions similar to those found in World Map Challenges. One floor might cause you damage due to extreme heat; another might disable your ability to use items.
You'll have a 24-hour period to meet a distance target which will be tracked over the course of that day. Make a Dungeon run, and you'll accumulate distance towards that target that you'll carry over to your next attempt. After each attempt, you'll need to regain stamina in order to try again. As such, you'll need to wait for a period of time before re-entering the Dungeon, or, if you'd prefer, you can pay gold in order to play again immediately. Both the cooldown time and gold cost will be based on the distance of your previous attempt.
The environments you'll visit in these Dungeons are completely new to Dash Quest, and they'll also feature a variety of new enemies and familiar foes that we're excited to share with you. Here's a look at one of these new areas, the Sunken Temple. This flooded ruin is home to our new mermen enemies, as well as others:
Periodically, as you explore the Dungeon, you'll proceed to a rest area where you'll have a chance to catch your breath, refill HP or MP, or pick up a special new Off-hand items. Introduced to help you take on these daily challenges, Off-hand items will only appear in the Dungeon, in a temporary fourth item slot. These items can serve a few different functions. The boomerang, for example, does an arc of either physical or magic damage on a low cooldown.
These weapons can be used as often as desired, but will only be active in your inventory until you reach the next rest area, where you'll have an opportunity to purchase another item. Other Off-hand items will grant temporary stat bonuses, such as the Shadow Solution, which passively boosts your Dodge until the next rest area. Still others have unique effects, like the Rulebreaker's Charm, which is immediately activated on purchase and disables conditions until you reach the next shop.
