Phantom Crystal Dimension
The Phantom Crystal Dimension is a bonus level introduced in v1.3.8.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Access to the Phantom Crystal Dimension can only be done while the player has obtained a White Key. The player has a 10% chance of obtaining a White Key at the end of any Another Dungeon run, regardless of difficulty and location. A player can only have one White Key on them at a time, so it is best to enter the Phantom Crystal Dimension as soon as it is available.
While the player holds a White Key, the Another Dungeon door will glow. The Another Dungeon menu will also reveal a previously-inaccessible "???" era tab, also glowing, to indicate its availability.
The Phantom Crystal Dimension is devoid of enemies, and consists of several worlds, each with multiple portals. Originally the mechanic was that choosing the correct portal would allow the player to advance to the next world, while the rest would place them in the Cape, forcing them to leave with whatever prizes they found. Currently, whether or not the player advances to the next world is predetermined as soon as the White Key is acquired and the choice of portal inside the Phantom Crystal Dimension plays no role. Successfully reaching the final room earns the "Stroke of Luck" award.
In each world other than the first, there are three chests to be found, containing Git, Scripts, and Scrolls. Each successive world contains chests that yield better prizes. The Cape also contains low-quality prizes as consolation, on the off chance the player gets sent there on the first choice.
The chance of successfully advancing was 2 / 3 for the first world, 1 / 2 for the second world, 1 / 3 for the third world, 1 / 2 for the fourth world, and 12 / 30 (taking Varuo into consideration) for the fifth world. This came out to be 12 / 540, or about a 2.22% chance of reaching the final world. However, v2.1.2 changed it so the result of the White Key is determined upon its acquisition and the choices inside the Phantom Crystal Dimension no longer matter. The current rate of success is unknown but can be assumed to be similar to before.
From v1.7.5, the player has a 1% chance of accessing one of two bonus worlds in between any two worlds. These worlds do not have any portals, but will automatically advance the player to the next world once all their rewards have been collected. One world, depicted as a Ratle store with three straw dummies, dispenses High Class Scrolls. The other, depicted as Nuaru Uplands with a lot of cats, gives Light/Shadow points and 20 stamps for the Paw Stamp Album. The player cannot access a bonus world if they picked a portal that puts them at the Cape.

*There is an estimated 5-10% chance to meet Varuo in Baruoki, waiting next to the chests on the map. Tap on him (even though there's no ! icon over him) to get a guaranteed warp to Elzion.
Sensationalist[edit | edit source]
Starting with v1.6.5, the Sensationalist can appear at the end of your run. He has a 1% chance of showing up in the Cape, and is a guaranteed encounter in the Final World. Should the player encounter him, he offers one free Treatise or Codex of their choice. (These are used for Another Style and Extra Style forms of characters.)
Paw Stamp Album[edit | edit source]
In v1.7.5, the Paw Stamp Album is added. It's awarded to the player on their next visit to the Dimension after updating the game.
Stamps are obtained from cats found in the Phantom Crystal Dimension, and can be redeemed in the First World for rewards. You can get one stamp in World II, III, IV, and the Cape. The bonus World with many cats allows the player to obtain 20 stamps at once.
To obtain the rewards below, talk to the kingly-looking cat sitting in front of the noticeboard. The reward(s) issued is based on the total Cat Stamps you've collected, and getting rewards will not consume your Cat Stamp count. Rewards after 400 Cat Stamps were added in v2.2.4. Once you accumulate enough stamps for the final available reward, you cannot get any more. The cat bonus World will not issue bonus stamps, but will still give Light and Shadow points.
