What is Tower of Fantasy?
Tower of Fantasy is an exciting open-world MMOPRG set hundreds of years in the future, on the planet of Aida. Players can use their mobile or PC to explore the virtual world through the eyes of a customisable avatar, completing missions and quests on the way.
Developed by Hotta Studios and released globally on 10 August 2022, the game has garnered interest from gacha fans all over the world. It has even been tipped as the perfect competitor for Genshin Impact, as the two present their anime aesthetic open worlds for gamers to enjoy.
As with any gacha game, the premise of it is to entice players into spending in-game money to receive items to use. The majority of gacha games require players to explore and complete tasks to acquire currency and earn rewards, however, there is also the option of purchasing currency with real-world funds. This is true of Tower of Fantasy, where there is gacha currency and premium currency.
Is Tower of Fantasy free to play?
While Tower of Fantasy is free to download and play, it does contain microtransactions, in the form of paid currency, that allows players to upgrade their character and buy extras such as battle passes with real funds. The game also includes bundles and promotions for players who want to purchase them. Due to some characters and weapons being rarer than others, those who purchase them with real money will get the upper hand in the game. For this reason, Tower of Fantasy does have a pay-to-win nature.
Can you buy currency in Tower of Fantasy without a credit card?
As is the case with most online games, the main way to purchase currency is by using a credit card. That said, users can also use a prepaid disposable card such as the Getsby Virtual Black Card to buy currency and other in-game resources.
A prepaid Virtual Card is similar to a debit card in that you can enter your card details for online transactions and purchase goods and services. However, with a prepaid card, you can only spend the amount that has been loaded onto the card as it’s not connected to your bank.
There are plenty of other reasons why using a virtual card for purchasing gaming currency is often the best option — we’ll cover these in the next couple of sections.
Accepted payment methods on Tower of Fantasy
Currently, Tower Of Fantasy only accepts credit cards for in-game purchases. However, this can pose an issue for those who do not own a credit card or would rather keep their card details separate.

How to fix the Tower of Fantasy parental consent and credit card requirement error message
There is nothing more annoying than having your game time disrupted. Recently, many Tower of Fantasy players have come across an error message that does exactly that. Users are finding that they are being blocked from playing by a message that states the game requires parental consent and credit card details to continue.
The main issue with the error is the game is free to play, and therefore, players should not need to enter card details to play. Another issue with the game is that it asks players for parental consent regardless of how old they are.
The cause of the issue lies with the game’s authentication system, and until it has been fixed by the developers, here’s what you can do to remedy it:
- Log out of the account and back into it
- Uninstalling and then reinstalling the game
What are the different currencies in Tower of Fantasy?
We’ve mentioned several of the currencies used in Tower of Fantasy and the fact some are paid. As with many gacha games, there are multiple currencies, some paid and some free. This can get a little confusing, so here’s a breakdown of how they work.
As previously mentioned, Tower of Fantasy has several currencies and they consist of two types:
- Summon Currency which allows you to summon simulacra or matrices.
- Adventure Currency which allows you to buy in-game items to kit your character with.
Both in-game currencies are free, except the Gacha currency Tanium, which you’ll only be able to gain by spending real money. The other currencies can be obtained in-game through various means such as exploration, missions and events.
The standard currency used in Tower of Fantasy is gold which you’ll get for most of the activities you take part in throughout the game. For example, you can collect gold for unlocking chests, completing quests, and defeating enemies. You can then use this gold to purchase ingredients for cooking or, more importantly, pay for weapon upgrades.
Another main currency is Nucleus, which is used for performing Gatcha Pulls — in Tower of Fantasy, these are called Special Order. Completing Special Orders allows you to obtain SR and SSR weapons which are crucial for your success within the game. There are three types of Special Order and each has its own currency. These are as follows:
- Special Order – Black Nucleus
- Named Special Order – Gold Nucleus
- Limited Order – Red Nucleus
Aside from Nucleus and Gold, there are several other currencies within Tower of Fantasy, each with a specific purpose. Players who do not want to spend money on microtransactions within the game will need to farm currency in-game. Here’s a breakdown of the other currencies and how you can obtain them:
|Currency||How to obtain|
|Proof of Purchase||
|Energy Crystal Dust||
|Merit (Activity Points)||
This said, for those who are looking to improve their chances within the game, there are several in-app purchases that can be bought using real-world money. As previously mentioned, Tower of Fantasy has one premium currency, Tanium, which is primarily converted into Dark Crystals and then used for purchases directly from the in-game Tower of Fantasy shop. Seeing as Dark Crystal can be used to buy gold, battle passes, vitality solutions, proof of purchase, red and gold nuclei, and identity upgrades, it is an incredibly valuable currency to have. Therefore, players who purchase Tanium can greatly improve their chances in the game.
How much do in-app purchases cost?
One of the most commonly purchased in-app resources is the currency Tanium. The price of Tanium is as follows:
|6,480 Tanium||£89.99 (€99,99)|
|3,280 Tanium||£44.99 (€49,99)|
|1,980 Tanium||£25.99 (€29,99)|
|980 Tanium||£12.99 (€14,99)|
|300 Tanium||£4.49 (€4,99)|
|60 Tanium||£0.89 (€0,99)|
Aside from Tanium, players can purchase game packs and other resources using real funds to improve their game experience. The cost of in-app purchases differs depending on what it includes. One of the least expensive in-app purchases is the Rookie pack, which provides players with currency, cosmetic enhancements for their character, and weapon enhancements. The prices of other packs and passes from the Tower of Fantasy shop are as follows:
|Advanced Pass||£17.99 (€19,99)|
|Adventure Pack||£4.49 (€4,99)|
|Dark Crystal Giftpack||£4.49 (€4,99)|
|Rookie Supplies||£0.89 (€0,99)|
How do you purchase currency in Tower of Fantasy?
You can either earn currency in-game by completing challenges and exploring, or you can fast-track your way to success by dipping into your own pocket and paying for Tanium or game packs using real money. This is done through the Tower of Fantasy shop using a credit card or prepaid Virtual Card powered by Mastercard.
Tanium can be bought on its own or can be obtained when a player chooses a special pack. When you buy Tanium for the first time from the store, you will be rewarded with an equal number of Dark Crystals. Additionally, you will also receive 300 Tanium when you purchase Monthly Pass Supplies, The Rookie Supplies, Adventure Pack, or Matrix Chip.
The only approved payment method for Tower of Fantasy is a credit card, however, a prepaid Virtual Card is a great alternative for those who want more security when purchasing gaming currency online. The Virtual Black Card gives you added security in the form of protection against data breaches, using 3D secure from Mastercard. Furthermore, a disposable Getsby card allows parents to limit the amount of money their children have access to — this is particularly useful to avoid unauthorised payments on a credit card.
Getsby cards are also ideal for those who do not have access to a credit card due to a low credit score. The card is not linked to a bank account, and therefore a credit report is not an eligibility requirement. This said, to apply for a Virtual Card, you still need to be over the age of 18 and a resident of the UK or EEA.
