Level/Equipment Requirements

The monsters here are very difficult to hunt solo, so it is best to hunt one monster after another if you only meet the minimum requirements. For those who satisfy or exceed the recommended requirements, slowly increase the number of monsters you fight at once until you find a comfort zone place for your capability.

Level AP DP
Minimum Stats 54Lv 120~150 170~
Recommended Stats 55~56Lv 170~180 190~



The Golem Summoning Stone is used to mass hunt in this area as the summoning stone will summon Wildness/Gravestone/Stone Golems when it receives damage. However, note that all the summoned Golems will vanish and not award any EXP or loot if you eliminate the summoning stone first.

Therefore, you must learn to start off by defeating the summoned Golems, then take care of the summoning stone at the end. A key strategy you will need to learn is to first hit the summoning stone, run far back to lure the summoned Golems, and then maneuver yourself to bunch up all the Golems together and make it easier to defeat them all at once. It is especially worth noting that most of the Wilderness Golem’s attack skills have the knockdown status effect. Thus, the ‘Topaz Necklace of Regeneration’ that gives +30% Knockdown/Bound resistance will be very useful. Other food/elixirs that reduce various damages will be important as well.

Once you’ve defeated a Golem (Wilderness/Gravestone/Stone), do not forget to use 1 Energy to gather (Bare Hands) from it.

User Density

This hunting ground is more popular to adventurers that have a recommended level and decent gear. This is due to the beautiful harmony of being able to lure Golems, the sense of adventure that comes from fighting against these gigantic creatures, as well as the ‘Sharp Thrill’ of gathering resource from the corpses of the dead Golems. Plus the occasional Bensho’s Necklace drop is an added bonus.

Therefore, it is absolutely recommended that you pay this place a visit if you are a seasoned player with decent gear. You will be able to experience a wholly unique level of fun here compared to the other hunting grounds of Mediah.
