Investigations, also known as Curious Dungeons, are special, remixed versions of the home dungeon that award a special badge on completion. For all intents and purposes, they are their own dungeon that share class completion and badges with their standard counterpart, as Curious dungeons can have different difficulty settings, special rules, and even bosses from the usual dungeon. In almost all cases, they are much more difficult, too.
