While the Campaign introduces Players to the Pixlverse & Pixl Pet Game Systems, Dungeons are where true replayability and 'grind' can come in. Take on progressively more challenging battles in Raid-like instances and do so yet again in groups of up to 4 Players. When you first step in, you'll be given a choice of a trait that will modify your run in a new way. Sometimes it'll be a powerful buff that increases all of your pet's damage but also makes them take more damage. There will be plenty of challenges to overcome as you snake your way deeper into the dungeon to get to the boss at the end.
Both the Pixl Pet Campaign and Dungeons offer more custom experiences outside of the rigid competitive ruleset of Pixl Pet PvP. To a certain extent, balance can be thrown to the wind; there'll be Move Variants that are PvE specific due to their wild power, entire additional mechanics, and systems to be used that stretch what's possible on the Battle Grid!
The higher level Dungeons you begin attempting, the more they'll test your knowledge of the Pixl Pet Battle system. Battle unusual numbers of enemies, sometimes you might only fight a few pets but they will be powerful versions of pets you're familiar with. In order to come out of the dungeon victorious, you'll have to defeat the boss at the end. The Boss of every dungeon will be a unique hand-crafted experience, offering a variety of challenges that reflect the theme of that particular Dungeon.
Every room you step into in a dungeon will present you with a choice. After each combat, you will gain gold and may be offered to pick a perk that will somehow transform your gameplay experience. If you stumble into a shop, you'll have a place to spend your gold for perks and equipment to help you on your adventure. Sometimes you will have to roll the dice to see if you can navigate a room of traps. What will you decide to do if you stumble upon a wandering behemoth, patrolling the halls for unsuspecting pets?
[A full list of PvE Perks will be made available closer to launch].
Perks let you customize your adventure a little bit. Oftentimes, you'll be presented with the choice to gain a lot of power, but with more risk involved. As you stack up more and more of these riskier perks, you'll have to assess just how far your group can make it. Is it worth taking a fight against an elite group of enemies for better rewards or will they send you back to the beginning of the run, left without your rewards?
Spending the time to work through a dungeon will be a way to level up your pets. The further you go the more experience there is to gain but the best rewards come from success. Choosing to make your path harder will also lead to you reaping the best rewards as you approach the end. Failing to make it to the end, however, will leave an empty chest behind and result in some lost potential profits.
