Valencia Lv. 56 ~ Lv. 60 Hunting Guide

R6raO6j.png

Once you’re over Lv. 56, it’s now time looking to head over to Valencia. The efficiency of the hunting grounds in Valencia is determined by the player’s level, gear, and their character proficiency, so it’s a place where all the experience you’ve gained up until now will truly shine. Remember your food and elixirs, as well as Elion’s Tears, just in case.

Another variable with the hunting grounds of Valencia is the terrain. Hunting grounds located in the desert can cause the character to become disoriented and lose way. Due to the ever-present threat of catching a desert ailment (Heatstroke, Hypothermia), you will always have to have the Purified Water (removes Heatstroke) and Star Anise Tea (removes Hypothermia) ready in hand.

Moreover, hunting as a party may be more efficient from this point onwards in Valencia. So go over the details in this guide and remember that hunting as a party may be another great way to ‘farm’ Valencia.

Bashim Base

The domain of the Bashims, a Valencian Demibeast tribe that has been living in the region for as long as Valencian civilization itself. They have their own language and follow the ways of nature. Their decadent and aggressive behavior tends to keep outsiders away and leaves them isolated.

1. Monster Types and Level

1) Basic Information

Mostly Lv. 53 ~ Lv. 58 monsters

Melee: Ohonsei, Khurud Battle Musician, Khurud Footman, Khurud Stout Footman, Khala Elite Solider, Khala Commander

Melee/Ranged: Khurud Spear Thrower, Khurud Stout Spear Thrower

Ranged: Bashim Vigor Totem, Bashim Protect Totem, Bashim Target Totem, Ohonsei Archer, Ohonsei Elementalist

Other: Bashim Annihilation Totem


2) Features - Located in a rather large canyon where monsters spawn across a wide area in a dense manner. - The area is not part of the desert, so there is no need for purified water and star anise tea.- There aren’t any jackpots in terms of loot, but has good EXP efficiency when hunting solo.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Bashim Base would be classified as Level 1. Although it is one of the easiest places in Valencia, it is advised that you satisfy the recommended requirements due to EXP efficiency. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 55 ~ 56 120 ~ 160 ~
Recommended 56 140 ~ 180 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

There should be no significant threats if you’ve satisfied the recommended requirements. However, with many of the players hunting solo, there is the potential chance of conflicts, which could be a threat if there ever was one.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Go up the path from where NPC Torenandu is, and you will find a circular ornament. That’s the location with the greatest monster density, so the most efficient hunting route is to take a big round trip centered around that location.

▶ The monsters are well dispersed throughout the large area, so there’s no need to insist on specific locations.

5. [Trend] Player Density

Based on EXP gain alone, the Bashin Base is not a very efficient hunting ground for party hunting, but is quite efficient for solo hunting. There isn’t any prime loot, but the Archaic Language Scroll drops quite often so it’s generally not too bad for income. For these reasons, there’s a consistent stream of players who come for solo hunting purposes.

As expected with ‘solo’ hunting, having higher damage and movement speed will lead to higher efficiency. However, remember to always stay calm as there are potential conflicts that could arise with other players. Prime location isn’t everything. Just walk around a little and you will find an abundance of monsters for yourself.

Cadry Ruins

Cultists from a false religion who believe in achieving eternal life by consuming the Black Stone powder are gathered here at Cadry Shrine, located on the land of corrupt Valencians who turned their backs on history. They worship Kzarka, the god of corruption, and sometimes abduct Desert Vagabonds or adventurers to offer them as sacrifices. They are one of the groups longing for the resurrection of Kzarka.

nMostly Lv. 52 ~ Lv. 59 monsters

Melee: Cadry Fighter, Cadry Armored Fighter

Ranged: Cadry Black Mage, Cadry Big Cannon

Other: Cadry Ruins Prison, Cadry Small Cannon, Cadry Summoning Stone


2) Features - The area is not part of the desert, so there is no need for purified water and star anise tea.- The location where the popular ‘Ring of Cadry Guardian’ can be acquired. Because this hunting ground is surrounded by massive canyons, it may be a rough journey if it’s your first time.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Cadry Ruins would be classified as Level 1. Actually, it’s probably better classified as Level 1.5 together with the Crescent Shrine. It is possible to hunt here with just the minimum requirements, but the threat of death is quite real. Thus, it is advised that players satisfy the recommended requirements before coming here. That’s more efficient, anyway. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 ~ 15 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 55 ~ 56 140 ~ 210 ~
Recommended 56 160 ~ 220 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

Cadry Fighters protect themselves with a shield as they approach, then use a stiffness skill. The Cadry Armored Fighters use a more powerful stiffness skill, while the Cadry Black Mages will perform ranged attacks from all over the place. Hunting here could be quite entertaining if you maximize the use of your previous experiences. However, for those who are still getting the hang of the controls, let’s just say it won’t be pretty.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The round ruins inside the shrine has the highest monster density, and it’s suitable for hunting solo or in a party of 2 to 3 players.

5. [Trend] Player Density

The Cadry Ruins is actually not very popular compared to the other hunting grounds such as the Crescent Shrine. But if you’re looking for a tranquil place to hunt without the stress of competing with other places, this is the place. Another option is to take a few friends or guild members to have a nice relaxing time together.

You’ll be able to earn a bit of money through the occasional ‘Ring of Cadry Guardian’ drop as well as its fragments. EXP gain is not too bad either. The fact that it’s far away from a town/city could be a problem, but it should be okay if you use the Kunid Villa.

Waragon Nest

Waragons are known to live in dugouts or marshes, but Valencian Waragons are a little different. In order to adapt to the rough terrain, they build nests in the shady areas between the rocks or at the bottom of canyons.

Others: Stone Waragon Egg


2) Features - Located in the inner parts of a massive canyon. - No threat of ailments as it’s not a desert region.- Mutant Waragons hatch from the Stone Waragon Eggs. Remember this during your hunt.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Waragon Nest would be classified as Level 1. It’s not difficult overall if you meet the recommended requirements. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.

1) Precautions

The Stone Mutant Waragon that hatches from the Stone Waragon Eggs hides under the ground unless it’s going for an attack. The presence of the Stardust Candy Stone Waragon also requires players to be on their toes.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Monsters appear throughout the massive valley, so it is very effective to have high movement speed.

Nevertheless, handful of players who are attempting to acquire the popular ‘Chubby Chubby’ title as well as those seeking the ‘Black Magic Crystal - Sturdiness’ which is a very useful item for seasoned players. If you do decide to hunt here, it is highly recommended that you also accept the hunting related quests from Moria, the Node Manger NPC.

Desert Naga Temple

The home to the original Nagas, the ancestors of the Nagas living in Serendia. They consider their home in the region of the ancient desert civilization to be sacred. Nagas don't get along with Humans and have no interest in improving relations, but they don't want war either because they loath the Fogans even more.

Other: Desert Naga Skyscraper Guardian Tower, Desert Naga Sculpture


2) Features - Monsters are evenly split through the road that leads to a narrow canyon.- This hunting ground is part of a desert region, so players must take distilled water and star anise tea. - There aren’t any jackpots in terms of loot, but has good EXP efficiency and has the added benefit of being close to a town.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Desert Naga Temple would be classified as Level 1. One won’t have a problem with just the minimum requirements, but it is advised that they satisfy the recommended requirements for EXP and item farming efficiency purposes. Most of the hunting grounds throughout Valencia are more efficient when players satisfy or exceed the recommended requirements. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 ~ 20 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 55 ~ 56 130 ~ 190 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

Players will have to watch out for the Desert Naga Commanders as they have high HP and immunity to fall type status effects. The Desert Naga Battle Priest’s magic damage is quite brutal from behind, so make sure to take care of them first.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Go to the west of Sand Grain Bazaar and you find the Desert Naga Temple where the quest NPC is located. Go further to the northwest to find the best location with the highest monster density. That’s the prime point here.

▶ The lower mount park is where all the quest NPCs are located, and the northwest area of that point is the best hunting spots.


4. Major Drop Items

Desert Naga Webfoot

Rocaba Gloves

Black Stone (Weapon)

Archaic Language Scroll

Black Magic Crystal - Swiftness


5. [Trend] Player Density

Despite the hassle of being a desert region, the benefits of not being too far from Sand Grain Bazaar and the extreme EXP efficiency for party hunting has led to its great popularity. Ranged classes have a competitive edge over the melee classes due to the monster composition, so Rangers tend to be more popular here. Insisting on certain classes can be stressful, though, and it’s always more entertaining to have a good mix of classes when party hunting.

If it is your first trip, you might be baffled at how most of the hunting spots are occupied. So if you’re hunting alone, it might be a good idea to not go to the location mentioned above. Instead, take a side track from the quest NPC mentioned above and check out the group of monsters there.

Taphtar Plain (Centaurs)

This was once a peaceful land that Shakatu gave to his beloved Taphtar, but now half horse-half Human creatures known as the Centauri run the area. Shakatu angrily demanded the Centauri be expelled from the plains, but the punitive mission of the Katan Military was suspended after a series of failures due to the unsurpassed mobility of the Centauri. It is said that deep within the plain lies the “Burning Black Stone”, a sacred artifact passed down by Centauri ancestors for generations.

1) Basic Information

Mostly Lv. 52 ~ Lv. 61 monsters

Melee: Centaurus, Centaurus Hunter, Centaurus Axe Warrior

Ranged: Earth Guardian Tower

Other: Centaurus Treasure Chest


2) Features - The monster can be commonly seen around the Barhan Gateway that leads into the desert. - Sometimes, players can even die while traveling on a horse, they need to always be on alert.- Because it’s not a desert region, there is no need to worry about ailments.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Taphtar Plain would be classified as Level 2. The Centaurus have great attack/defense/movement speed, so players are advised to at least satisfy the recommended requirements. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 56 160 ~ 210 ~
Recommended 57 ~ 185 ~ 240 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

First of all, the Centaurus are one of the most difficult monsters in the early regions of Valencia. They have fast movement speed and are immune to fall type attacks, so players are often under the sensation of being hunted, when they are the ones that should be hunting. This is particularly the case for the plains region where 6 ~ 7 Centaurus are gathered in a pack. If you happen to catch their interest whilst having low DP, then you will find yourself having to quickly gulp down HP potions, or even dying. The best way is to lure the Centaurus and Centaurus Axe Warriors to where the Centaurus Hunters are, and then take care of them at once. Start practicing against just one of the monsters, and then slowly learn how you can mass hunt them.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The monsters can be easily found west of the Barhan Gateway, so there are no specific prime spots.

5. [Trend] Player Density

Monsters that players will always encounter in their early journey throughout Valencia as part of the main quest. You can consider it as a test: you can consider yourself somewhat capable of venturing throughout Valencia if you can at least hunt one of these monsters by yourself.

Although the ‘Centaurus Belt’ is a tempting item, it’s rather less popular compared to the Basilisk’s Belt, which is on a similar difficulty scale. Although this hunting ground is not so popular right now, it may see an exponential rise in popularity if the item trend shifts towards the ‘Centaurus Belt’, so keep it in mind.

Basilisk Den (Gorgo Rock Belt)

A region inhabited by the clever but wicked Basilisks. The land is made even more dangerous due to its rocky terrain. Some courageous adventurers have traversed this rocky region to challenge the Basilisks, but very few have survived. “The land was filled with petrified Humans, without a single Basilisk in sight. I don’t even want to think about that place.”

1) Basic Information

Mostly Lv. 52 ~ Lv. 62 monsters

Melee: Gorgo Cobra, Petrified Adventurer, Petrified Soldier, Basilisk Lurker, Basilisk Petrification Trainer, Basilisk Watcher

Other: Basilisk Statue


2) Features - Monsters are spread diversely through the Gorgo Rock Belt and to the west.- There are both human type and demihuman type monsters. The Basilisk Lurker, Petrification Trainer, and Watchers are particularly powerful.- Because it’s not a desert region, there is no need to worry about ailments.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Basilisk Den would be classified as Level 2. Because the Basilisks have great HP and DP, players will find it more efficiency to have high AP. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 56 160 ~ 210 ~
Recommended 57 ~ 185 ~ 230 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

You must hunt not the human type, but the demihuman type Basilisks for efficiency purposes. Assuming players would be mass hunting, it is nearly impossible to confront the monsters head to head, and players should circle around the monsters while attacking. Occasionally, the Petrified monsters will inflict stun, so you should eliminate that risk by taking care of them first.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Go deeper into the west side of the Gorgo Rock Belt to find groups of Basilisks. They are usually bunched up in 3 ~ 4 monsters, so the most thrilling way to beat them is to gather up two of these groups and mass hunt them.

5. [Trend] Player Density

Basilisks are over Lv. 60, so may be very difficult for a player that has just graduated from Mediah and came over to Valencia. Thus, it is better to level up in the other hunting grounds of Valencia first, before attempting the Basilisk Den.

In reality, the Basilisk Den is more sought after by high level players for the purpose of item farming. Despite the rather low EXP efficiency, there is a chance to acquire the popular ‘Basilisk’s Belt’ item, as well as the overall earnings being pretty decent. The inner area of the den commonly referred to as the ‘Basil Farm’ is always very popular, so it is advised that players switch around the channels to find one that is empty.

Gahaz Bandit's Lair

The domain of the Gahaz Bandits, established after the band was driven off by the Katan Military a few years back. Gahaz Tuval, the leader of the bandits, is a well-known figure in the black market. It is rumored that he recently caught a mysterious “Black Dragon”, and is now preparing for a grand return after taming it.

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

There’s nothing too dangerous to watch out for here. Like any of the other hunting grounds, it’s best to take out the ranged monster first, which is the Sandstorm Rifler in this case. Food and elixirs that deal extra damage to human type monsters will also help.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The best route is to take a round trip up the hill, and then make a U-turn back down the hill based on the location of the Node Manager NPC Rapa,

5. [Trend] Player Density

This is not one of the popular locations as it is considered worse than the Desert Naga Shrine, Titium Valley (Desert Fogan) and Crescent Shrine. However, the benefit of being close to town and the moderate density of monsters allows players to hunt casually. So if party hunting that’s all about efficiency is not your style, this place is definitely recommended. The four human type monsters excluding the object drops ‘Archaic Language Scroll’ allowing reasonable item farming, and the EXP efficiency after Lv. 56 is not too bad if you’re not overzealous.

Crescent Shrine

A shrine of Valencia, home to the vestiges of an ancient Valencian civilization. Although countless sandstorms have weathered the shrine significantly, its ruins still remain here and there in this area. It is said that Argos Saunil that still remains in the shrine continues to have festivals of blood whenever the crescent moon rises.

2) Features - The hunting ground is part of a desert region, so players will need to take distilled water and star anise tea to treat ailments. - One of the hot spots because of the ‘Ring of Crescent Guardian’ item which is extremely popular among the high-level players. Also, it is considered as one of the lawless regions between players as there’s freedom to PK in the desert.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Crescent Shrine would be classified as Level 1. More like 1.5 to be exact. One won’t have a problem with just the minimum requirements, but it is definitely much better in many ways to satisfy or exceed the recommended requirements for EXP and item farming efficiency purposes. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 ~ 15 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 55 ~ 56 140 ~ 220 ~
Recommended 56 160 ~ 230 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

The Crescent Guardian is very powerful and is immune to fall type effects, so players will need to utilize their skills with other status effects. It also uses a jump skill that causes players to fall over as well, which can be especially dangerous to players with just the minimum requirements. Once you’re on the ground, you might get surrounded by a horde of monsters, which will quickly spell out your doom.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The density of monsters is the highest where it is indicated by a circle, starting from the tower stone pillar inside the shrine.

▶ The innermost area is the most popular. Remember to accept the hunting quests from the Node Manager NPC.

5. [Trend] Player Density

This area is particularly popular among the high-level players as it not only has great EXP efficiency when hunting solo, but a chance to hit the jackpot with the item commonly referred to as ‘Crescent’. But players must always be cautious as there are many players with seriously good gear, and it’s an area where desert PK is allowed.

Of course, this is just mentioned since ‘there is the possibility’, but it is definitely recommended that players pay a visit here for the atmosphere.

Titium Valley (Desert Fogan)

An area inhabited by the Desert Fogans, who have established themselves in Valencia. Although Desert Fogans became an increasingly weak force after many of their kind migrated to Serendia, they have regained a semblance of their past glory since coming to this valley filled with pristine water. It is named Titium Valley after the Desert Fogan chief, who is also known as the Fogan prince.

2) Features - The hunting ground is part of a desert region, so players will need to take distilled water and star anise tea to treat ailments. - Located at the south end of Valencia the capital and is difficult to find the first time around.- An advantage of this hunting ground is that it’s great for both solo and party hunting as there is a large number of high level monsters.


2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Titium Valley would be classified as Level 1. You can hunt solo with the recommended requirements, or decide to hunt as a party. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 ~ 15 to the minimum/recommended requirements.

Although there aren’t any jackpots in terms of loot, this hunting ground has fairly good efficiency for both EXP and earning money. It doesn’t get the appreciation it should, being overshadowed by the Desert Naga Shrine, but it’s actually a fairly balanced hunting ground for both solo and party hunting. The users who consider Heidel or Calpheon as their ‘hometown at heart’ may find the long distance rather burdensome, but they’ll certainly be satisfied with all the enjoyment, EXP, and earnings this place has to offer.

Roud Sulfur Mine

The Roud Sulfur Mine is part of the Gavinya Volcano zone to the northeast of Valencia and the only place where 99% pure sulfur can be extracted. However, there’s also the imminent danger of the toxic gas and the potential explosion.

Minimum 57 ~ 58 185 ~ 220 ~
Recommended 58 ~ 59 205 ~ 245 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

The Lava monsters are gathered in small packs around a Lava Heat Condenser and a Lava Oil Pressure Ejector. The Oil Pressure Ejector will discharge poisonous gas in four directions, while the Heat Condenser will explode few seconds after being damaged to inflict status effects to its enemies. All of the Lava Fafalun, Devourer and Tukars use knockback and knockdown skills, as well as damage over time effects, so players are advised to take a good stock of HP potions with them. Of course, all of these threats aren’t too significant for players that satisfy the recommended requirements, but it’s worth noting if it’s your first time around.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Because the monsters are gathered in small packs, both inside and outside the mine are great if you’re solo hunting. As for party hunting, it’s definitely better to go inside the mine and find a suitably large spot to go around and hunt together.

▶ A very large number of monsters spawn throughout the hunting ground, and it is quite efficient both inside and outside the mine.

One of the exceptional hunting grounds along with Pila Ku that is great for both solo and party hunting for players above Lv. 58. The recent rumors of great EXP efficiency for party hunting here has led to a great influx of players. It’s an excellent opportunity for various classes to mix and mingle together, which makes hunting even more enjoyable.

The ‘Bluish Sulfur’ is an item that can be used for a daily quest that rewards 3000k silver coins. If you want to fully dedicate yourself to accumulate some skill points, you should make use of Dudora’s villa.

Pila Ku Prison

There is much speculation about when the Pila Ku prison was built, but it is widely believed that it was built during the reign of the 3rd king of Valencia. It is said that it was built to imprison alchemist Caphras, who was causing many problems in Valencia at the time. Although there is even more speculation about Caphras: he might be dead, he may have escaped, or maybe he is immortal. Nevertheless, the one thing we know for sure is that criminals are still being imprisoned in the Pila Ku prison.

2) Features - Located to the south of Valencia and northeast of Muiquun- There is the advantage of not being affected by desert ailments despite being located within the desert region. - The dungeon is very large inside with a fitting number of monsters occupying it.

2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Pila Ku Prison would be classified as Level 2. You could find yourself dead on the ground if you’re not focused, so it is advised that players always stay on alert. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 57 ~ 58 195 ~ 240 ~
Recommended 58 ~ 59 210 ~ 263 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

All the monsters are Lv. 60 and have very high HP and attack. Caphras’s Followers are particularly threatening as one of their ranged attacks could take 1,000 HP off you if it hits you in the wrong spot. You should hunt with the ‘if I stop, I’m dead’ mindset. Players must also note that if they had been managing through the previous hunting grounds of Valencia by using invincibility or super armor skills, then unfortunately it won’t be the same here.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

All spots are fine for solo hunting, while parties should go down deeper and hunt across a large area.

▶ Located at the southern end of Valencia and is also close to Muiquun. You must go through the entrance to encounter the vast number of monsters inside. There are many NPCs inside the entrance, and players should definitely accept the quests from them.

5. [Trend] Player Density

One of the exceptional hunting grounds that is great for both solo and party hunting for players above Lv. 58. The Pila Ku Prison is also a great location for earning money, as the available loot includes Sicil’s Necklace, Unknown Map Piece, and Explorer’s Compass Part. The ‘Lost Piece of a Forbidden Book’ is an item that can be used for a daily quest that rewards 3000k silver coins. The only problem would be that players will need to satisfy a certain standard of level and equipment.

High level players can hunt solo while parties should go down to the big hall and mass hunt for best efficiency. Because the monsters are very powerful, having a wizard or a witch in the party should make things easier. If a player has turned Evil, it could be a good option to settle yourself in Muiquun and hunt within the Pila Ku Prison.

Aakman Temple

In Valencia, where Aal is the only god, a group of outsiders called the Akman worship these Ancient Giants. The land the Akman reside in is known simply as “Akman”. They spend most of their time wandering the desert and worshiping the Ancient Giants, and they only rest about once a month. The temple of the Akman who have turned against Valencia is located in a secluded area where they continue to plan to bring back the ancient giants.

2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Aakman Temple would be classified as Level 3. Even players that exceed the recommended requirements cannot hunt here alone and require a party. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP
Minimum 60 250 ~ 280 ~
Recommended 60 250 ~ 280 ~

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

Extremely powerful monsters are found in this temple along with the Hystria Ruins. A party of players that exceed the recommended requirements is required to barely take down one group of monsters. It is especially important to use all available food and elixirs to increase your power as much as possible. Don’t get overeager, and make sure to work together with your other party members. Most of the monsters have extremely high resistance to status effects and they also gain super armor whenever they use a skill, so it is essential to correctly time status effect skills such as fall and stun.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The spiral shaped dungeon has an abundance of monsters, so players will have the optimal efficiency wherever they are.

5. [Trend] Player Density

The Aakman Temple is currently not very popular because of its extreme difficulty, as well as the low EXP and item farming efficiency due to monsters being very low to hunt, even for parties with the ability to hunt them. However, it is anticipated that more and more players will seek this place out as time passes as rare items such as the materials for the Tungrad Earring and Improved Compass Part can be acquired. It’s a dungeon that rewards truly brave and bold adventurers.

2. Level/Gear Requirements

If you broadly classify the hunting grounds of Valencia into Level 1, 2, and 3, the Hysteria Ruins would be classified as Level 3. It is that much difficult. Well, to be honest, it’s beyond something that can be described as difficult. It’s hellishly hard: this is why the minimum and recommended requirements are the same, and it is better for players to exceed these requirements. ※ If your character has not been Awakened, then it is best to add +10 to the minimum/recommended requirements.


Level AP DP

3. Strategies

1) Precautions

Of the areas in Valencia, this is the only place where monsters from Lv. 64 to Lv. 65 can be found. Their attacks have no mercy, and their extremely high resistance means they will not be affected by any status effects. There’s nowhere to hide since they all use both melee and ranged attacks, which is made even more threatening by how the ranged attacks decrease attack and movement speed. Prepared players need to form a party and completely trust and rely on one another. Fighting here will be a true test of your survival and combat abilities.


2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Exercise caution here at all times. Take one wrong step and monsters will relentlessly chase after you.

One of the most vicious dungeons that no one has yet been able to clear properly. So in reality, this dungeon has become completely desolate and abandoned. However, it is anticipated that as more players obtain higher levels and better gear, they will be able to form a party and start to clear this dungeon. It is also likely that the number of players that seek this dungeon will increase with time as they can acquire the materials for the Tungrad earring and the Improved Compass part from the monsters here. Having a challenge to look forward to is always fun!
