The Current Floor Rotation is: 2
The floors will rotate in 21 hours and 18 minutes. (Update)


The Tower of Barbs is a mysterious ever-changing tower on the island of southwestern Tokyo. It serves as the main setting of Let It Die; the ultimate goal of the game is to reach the top. There are various paths you can take, which lead you to different areas on the floors. Paths are indicated on the map by colored lines, which correspond to the color of the escalator the player must use to travel to the desired area.

There's a main elevator shaft that travels from the Waiting Room to the top of the Tower of Barbs, as well as a few side elevators, though these tend to have only two or three stops. The more floors you wish to travel past in an elevator, the more Kill Coins it costs. Not all areas will have their own stop on the main elevator and at times the player may need to travel through several side areas before reaching the next elevator stop.

Completion of many of the side areas is optional, but the resources the player can gather during exploration may prove vital to further advancement in the Tower.

Rotations[edit | edit source]

At 00:00 GMT (4PM PST, 5PM MST, 6PM CST, 7PM EST) every day, the layout of the tower and which areas are available changes. There are four different rotations that are cycled through repeatedly. Most of the centrally located areas exist in all rotations with some exceptions, though they may move around on the map as their connections change. For every rotation there are a number of areas that are only available during that rotation, which means that the player can only enter them one out of every four days. Some of these rotation-specific floors may have Stamps, pages from Tales From The Barbs, and pages of the Yotsuyama Bionics Catalogue.

Districts[edit | edit source]

The Tower of Barbs is split up into 4 Districts, each focusing on a different type of damage and defense. Usually enemies are defended against the weapon types they carry, so if a District focuses on Slashing weapons, they're generally wearing armour that protects against Slashing damage. It can be a good idea to tailor your weapons and armour to the district you are currently going through.

D.O.D. ARMS District[edit | edit source]

This District covers Floors 1-10.

In this District, enemies primarily use Slashing and Blunt weapons. While Fireworks Launchers have some Fire damage, generally you don't specifically have to armour against it. You may occasionally find Fire-based traps as well, but these can be easily avoided.

D.O.D. ARMS armor tends to be weak to physical damage (Slashing,Blunt, Piercing) and strong against elemental damage (Fire, Electric, Poison).

War Ensemble District[edit | edit source]

This District covers Floors 11-20.

In this District, enemies primarily use Slashing and Piercing weapons. Be very careful during your first few runs, since you'll still be wearing D.O.D. ARMS armor.

War Ensemble armor tends to be weak to Slashing and Electric damage and strong against Piercing, Fire, and Poison damage.

Candle Wolf District[edit | edit source]

This District covers Floors 21-30.

In this District, enemies primarily use Slashing and Piercing weapons. You'll also see some Fire and Poison damage.

Candle Wolf armor is usually weak to Blunt, Piercing, and Electric damage and strong against Slashing and Poison damage.

M.I.L.K. District[edit | edit source]

This District covers Floors 31-40.

In this District, enemies primarily use Blunt and Piercing weapons. You'll also see some Electric weapons here.

M.I.L.K. armor is usually weak to ?? damage and strong against ?? damage.
