NGSTutorial CocoonTower.png

Cocoons and Towers are mysterious structures found in the fields of Planet Halpha. Contained within them are enclosed, instanced Cocoon Quests and Tower Quests, which teaches you on various movement and combat techniques, and provides rewards upon completion.

Upon completion, Cocoons and Towers will provide the player with Skill Points, which can be used to unlock class skills at the Class Counter. Cocoons will reward the player with 1 Skill Point upon completion, and Towers will reward the player with 4 Skill Points upon completion.

Players can currently earn up to 40 skill points, with Cocoon 20 Cocoons, and Tower 5 towers spread across Planet Halpha.

Cocoon Quests are smaller challenges designed to test players, while Tower Quests are larger, more complex quests similar to Time Attack quests from PSO2.

When interacting with the door to a Cocoon or Tower, you are shown various details about the Cocoon/Tower Quest within which are detailed below. You are also shown party settings that you can use to restrict access to your own party.

On your World Map, Cocoons are represented as pink "barrel-like" icons (Cocoon), and Towers are represented as pink tower icons (Tower). Selecting the icon for a Cocoon or Tower also allows you to view the details of the Cocoon/Tower Quest and if conditions are correct, you can start the Cocoon Quest from the World Map.
