    Are the blocks permanent? Permanent 48 ATT sounds like a bit much for an event reward.
    Also nobody answered OP's question- do we get BOTH blocks, or does the enhanced one just replace the normal one once we unlock it?

    The blocks are permanent, we're also be able to accept both blocks. The enhanced block doesn't replace the normal block. If the blocks weren't permanent there'd be no reason to do Lab aside from a "fun challenge", which wasn't the case in Tms, I don't see why it'd be the case here.

    What I want to know is if we seriously have to get to 250 for the max level of the blocks, I'm really confused as to why Gms would change that when Tms only had to do 200. I'm still not even convinced that 250 is possible in Lab. People seem to be underestimating how long it actually takes to get 250, especially without frenzy or kishin.

    I see, thank you!

    I just wish they'd make the top tier legion block a challenge that's actually doable.

    Not 250! What about reach 200 without any bonus HP. That'd be a challenge!

    Totally agree. I don't see it being feasible for any non-hacker to achieve. This is yet another 'Community Event' where the goal is essentially impossible to reach. And I like the idea of alternate challenges for achieving a goal, although I'm not sure how feasible no HP equipment would be either hahah. =P

    What I did is when I got to 150, I emptied out my Use inventory and filled it with just black potions. I also previously picked up a set of level 10 clothes. When you die, you'll get a quest to kill VL while being equipped with a special bottle item. All I did was scroll my noob gear for pure stat, and chugged all the black potions. I ended up being 100k-850k range (yay mastery lol), and it only took 3 hits to take him out. I also suggest activating both quests (VL and level 200 quest) as I anticipated I might die (which I didn't), and you level up from killing VL which means you can no longer accept it at level 10.

    Ive been getting an error for VL quest after maintenance, so watch out for that too. I asked others in game and they also have gotten errors.

    The error is probably because all the instances are occupied. Try changing channel or just entering at a different time.

    I've been trying to hit 250 for years on my main. Theres no way I'm doing it on a new character in the event time, 2x event or not.

    Why do the legion blocks have values for <150?

    Also you need 200 for the 2nd block after dying post 150? I'm assuming does the ordinary (non enhanced) legion block scale with the max level your character hit at any given time or there level upon closing of the Lab Server?

    In other words, I'm lv 150, if I reset to 10 so I can try for the Enhanced block as well, and get bored and quit after lv 100, will my normal legion block be for lv 100 or 150?

    there are two blocks that your trying to earn. You have to get to 150 for the first block and get the quest. Then die, accept a quest "200 w/o death", kill von leon at level 10, every time you die you have to forfit and re accept the 200 w/o death quest. Level up to 200 w/o deaths for the second block. You would have earned the 150 block even if you stop at 100 on the second time leveling up your character as long as you have accepted the quests.

    I thought it was possible. I made a Paladin with 99k max defense and 200k HP. I grinded day and night around 10 hours+ a day. I ignore my main char for several days. I bought several 2x exp coupons 1 day using cash and grinded with less sleep. Until i arrived at lv 219 and the game crashed me 4 times and those green flying mob at chuchu killed me before i managed to online. SO MAD. I spent 30+hours on this lab server event for NOTHING. and it wasn;t even my fault. I did died before i made this Paladin coz i was using Ice Lightning mage. But it is half my own fault coz i was a bit careless. So once again I made a Paladin. But this time, it wasn;t my fault at all. I'm SO MAD AT THIS. They can check my log, I didn't even move at all coz i couldn't move coz the game keep crashing me

    The biggest question that needs to be answered is whether lab will be bugged in the same way that it was in tms, in that your final reward was based on whatever level your character was at the time of the server closing, rather than what quests you completed.

    It would be very helpful if @Arwoo could get a concrete answer on this matter before it comes to the point of being too late.

    if I forfeit the 200 quest but I was already at 150 a second time around, would I have to die and start over(accept the 200 quest again) for the second legion block, since I forfeit the 200 quest?

    The 200 quest can only be accepted at level 10.
    It can't be completed if it's not accepted.
    So you must die and go back to 10 to re-accept it.
