    Extra power up items are now available to select before battle giving bonuses such as:

    2 seconds added to everyone's timer.
    Nullifying all floor traps
    Exp Boost of 50%
    Coin Boost of 50%

    These items can be redeemed from special codes or promotions.

    Is there any reason to use exp and coin Boost outside of Metal Zone, Attack of the Coin, 20-1 ?

    If you're impatient the effect still works. For well-informed people like ourselves, we'd obviously only use them on the right quests

    I came here to see if there was info on how to obtain them. Special Codes or promtions only? I suppose that makes sense, at least for the coins and EXP. It seems a waste for the time extension and trap disarmer, though; They should be purchase-able with coins, or even energy, so someone struggling could actually reasonably expect to use them.

    Unless these are given out very frequently, I expect they're going to sit in my inventory, forgotten, for quite some time.

    These are one time use only items? Too afraid to use them lol
    If they are I wonder if they'll be farmable or maybe event awards.

    I don't really see an issue with making them farmable in future levels. So maybe somewhere along the line...? They could also just add them to an ingame store.

    The only information comes from the news feed in the game:
    "Items are optained via present or serial code"

    Just did MZ1, since it had the king. I didn't see a way to use any of the items, did I miss it?

    You can select your items just before starting the quest. There's a little window right above the Start button

    If you take the example of exp boost, with an end-game account (100 stamina)
    - one item will give you +50% for a single level (usually MZ5 or 20-1)
    - one energy will allow you do do 4 more 20-1 (+400% to exp AND gold), or about 2.5 MZ5 (+250%)

    Of course, energy needs you to play again the same levels, but with those numbers in mind, I do not see powerup coming in shop anytime soon. Unless they are really really cheap and sold in bulk, it will be better to puchase energy than powerup items.

    It's too early to tell how we can get those items besides DLC. There may be a way to farm them through quests or co-op special maps, etc.
    Their value is not so great anyway, so not a big deal.

    I agree that the EXP Boost isn't a good item to monetize unless sold in bulk. Disarmer and Time Extension could still be worthwhile items though if you lack certain characters or just don't want to sacrifice a character slot for a utility character

    I'm positive I'll be hoarding these as well. Not for anything special- just would feel I'm wasting them otherwise. However, if they were to offer a "rare item drop rate boost" power-up, I'd put that to good use immediately (if not sooner). So... yes, please and [possibly] thank you.

    Considering I'm a hoarder, I'll just keep these and probably not even bother using them lol

    That's what I was thinking. It would seem these would be a lower tier login bonus items.

    The trap and timer boosts could be useful for events, but I don't see myself using them either. It's always nice to see new stuff though.
