Differences from other Assaults
Unlike the primary Assault stages, Nyzul Isle does not operate on the same point system, nor does it have purchasable rewards.
When a party of players successfully completes a floor, and saves their progress by exiting the assault, they will be rewarded Tokens instead of Assault Points. Tokens are required for the holder of the Runic Disc to reach a previously saved floor. Tokens can also be used to purchase temporary items from the Vendor Box.
The amount of tokens awarded upon successfully completing a Nyzul mission (that is, by choosing to exit at a Rune of Transfer before 30 minutes has elapsed) depends upon the number of floors completed, the level of those floors, how many members were in the party, and whether or not the individual used an Assault Armband to begin the mission.
The base token award per floor begins at 200 and increases by 10 every 5 floors. For instance, floors 1 through 5 individually give 200 tokens, floors 6 through 10 give 210, floors 76 through 80 give 350, etc. At the end of a mission, the per-floor awards are totaled and then scaled down depending upon the number of participants in the same manner as the AP award for other Assault missions (90% for a four-person party, 80% for five, 70% for six). Additionally, the holder of the Assault Armband is then awarded a 10% token bonus.
Selecting a Floor
Tokens are used at the initial Rune of Transfer for transport to a higher floor, the availability of which depends on the status of an individual's Runic Disc. [Insert formula for the cost of transport to higher floors]
At the beginning of each Assault, players will have the opportunity to use their accumulated tokens on various medicine, obtained from a chest in the initial lobby.

Each floor will randomly assigned players to an objective. The floor objective can be checked by touching the unactivated Rune of Transfer. Once this objective is completed, the Rune of Transfer will activate and allow players to move on the next floor or exit the Assault. The objectives that are randomly selected listed below. In addition to a floor restriction can be added on top of an objective.
- Eliminate all enemies. Must clear every enemy on the floor. Archaic Gears are not counted.

- Eliminate specified enemies. A certain monster family that all check as Impossible to Gauge needs to be defeated. Heraldic Imp, Psycheflayer, Poroggos Gent, Ebony Pudding, Racing Chariot, or Qiqirn Treasure Hunter and Qiqirn Archaeologist.

- All party members to touch a single lamp to gain their "certification code".
- Activate all lamps at the same time.
- Activate all lamps in a specific order in a short time.
- Free floor. Allows moving on to the next floor without completing any objective.
A restriction can be placed on top of objectives. There are one of two floor restrictions. They will add Archaic Gears to the floor. They aggro to magic, abilities, and true sound.
- Avoid discovery by archaic gears! Being seen by an archaic gear will be result in a Pathos, a penalty, being applied to the party. Archaic Gears can still be defeated without penalty. If an Archaic Gear is attacked first, by song or ranged attack, you will not receive the Pathos.
- Do not destroy archaic gears! Defeating an Archaic Gear will result in a Pathos being applied to the party.
Monsters in this Assault can potentially leave behind an armory crate in which will be filled with medicines like the Vendor Box. Which monsters drop this chest and what is in the chest is random.
Tokens are awarded to entire the party when at least one floor has been cleared and manually exit.
Notorious Monsters that normally appear somewhere else will always leave behind a brown colored chest with gold trim, named Armory Crate. Inside the chest will be a ??? Item that can be appraised into one of the drops the NM would normally drop.
Every twenty floors, participants will be challenged by a Boss, including Fafnir, Behemoth, Aspid, Khimaria, Cerberus and Hydra, each having the chance to drop a piece of armor found inclusively in the Nyzul Isle assault. The pieces drop in order of feet(20), legs(40), hands(60), body(80), and head(100).
