■ The New “Hero” Class

Etrian Odyssey X

Etrian Odyssey X will have a world map for the first time in the series.

On the world map, there will be labyrinths and item collection areas, events will occur, and F.O.E.s (Formido Oppugnatura Exsequens—enemies) will appear.

In addition to main labyrinths, the world map is also dotted with “small labyrinths” that do not need to be cleared to progress, so be sure to use them to test your skills.

In the item collection areas near the labyrinths you cleared, you can obtain materials and items. Since these areas are outside of labyrinths, your collection skills will have no effect, but you will be able to safely collect new items.

Many of the F.O.E.s that show up on the world map will appear at item collection areas. It is good to challenge them if you are confident in your skills. The F.O.E.s on the world map tend to move to different item collection areas, and if items can be collected at the area an F.O.E. moves to, be careful as it will be looted and impossible to collect items from for a short while.

■ Small Labyrinth

Untrodden Reservoir

The Untrodden Reservoir is a small labyrinth you will visit after obtaining information from Silica. Could it be that the “strange color-changing monsters that appear and disappear at will” are…?
