Beyond is an endgame game mode which offers a significant challenge in return for unique unlocks.
To play Beyond, the player must offer up 3 artifacts and 5 Tokens (with one exception noted in Emblems below). The artifacts they choose will determine which Stages they play and if the player wishes, they can submit the same type of artifact multiple times to play the same stage repeatedly.
Completing a Beyond quest will give the player a number of rewards, chosen randomly from a list:
- A small number of artifacts from a random type (does not have to be from a stage that was played)
- XP doublers
- Divine Items. The items unlocked depend on the artifacts sacrificed.
- A divine is not guaranteed. Each stage has an associated divine (see Stages). If any divine unlocks appear in the prize pool, the stages played will determine which divine(s) is unlocked.
Since avatars which are available from the standard Token shop are included in the prize pool, consider buying all the available avatars as soon as possible to reduce the chances of the prize pool containing otherwise easily obtained rewards.
Beyond takes a fixed format, 3 normal Stages and 3 special stages. The lower number of stages restricts most Masteries from using their mastery ability and prevents the player from obtaining a large amount of loot. The third and final stage contains a Boss.
The player can also choose to apply an emblem. Emblems are found randomly on any stage and change a Beyond run in significant ways. They either offer the player an additional prize at the end of their run or offer a very significant bonus, though some of the "additional prize box" emblems can also make a Beyond run much easier.
