Progressing through the Dungeon
Once you are inside the dungeon, the normal monsters are like a normal grind spot and players can see eachother if they are on the same channel. However, the final boss will be focused and faced in a seperate instance for your party only. If you die to the normal monsters in the dungeon you will have a PVE death penality if you are on the elvia server, however there is no penalty to dying on the final boss and no death penalties for the normal and season servers.
The normal monsters in the dungeon are Ancient Weapons. Each monster has a special mechanic which makes them easier to defeat. The monsters do not drop normal loot/trash, but drop items required to create keys needed to advance through the dungeon. Each item is affected by item drop increase buffs.
There are 3 mini-boss monsters called Berurah, Serpen and Apocros, which must be summoned and defeated to obtain the key items needed to move through each zone. To summon the bosses you will need drops from the normal monsters in each zone.
The dungeon is split into several zones and each is blocked by a dark dawn barrier. To advance into each zone you must collect a key. In order to advance to the final boss room, all five party members must possess a “Yolun Dagger” key item.
Atoraxxion NPC/Supply Depot – You can repair or buy potions and other items here
There are 5 puzzles to complete during the questline through Atoraxxion and there are also 2 hidden puzzles you can complete for knowledge.
The final boss in Syca’s Cradle is called Maleficent Centilutos and will require you and your party to utilize the power supply devices around the boss room. The power supply is divided into 4 levels and as each level rises, Centilutos’ defense is weakened, but his attacks become stronger. You will need to balance this well to defeat him.
