Elvia Calpheon

Monster Zones 

The following monster zones will be under the influence of the Elvia Realm when you enter an Elvia server. The powerful monsters corrupted by Hadum's aura present different challenges for the Adventurers that dare to face them. 

- Saunil Camp  

- Gehaku Plain 

- Rhutum Outstation 

- Hexe Sanctuary 

- Quint Hill 


Elvia Distortion Phenomenon 

“Elvia Distortion Phenomenon” occurs while you are in combat within Elvia Calpheon. 

When the distortion phenomenon occurs, the weather of the area changes. This is important to note as the appearance of Shadow of Nightmares monsters depend on the weather. 



Elvia Calpheon monster zones drop items required for the following: 

- Alchemy Stone upgrades 

- Godr-Ayed weapon conversion 

- Godr-Ayed weapon enhancement

Elvia Distortion Phenomenon

While you fight near the Rifts of Despair in Elvia Calpheon, special weather effects occasionally appear. This sudden weather effect is called the “Elvia Distortion Phenomenon.” 


When an Elvia Distortion Phenomenon occurs, one of the following types of “Shadow of Nightmares” will appear out of the Rift of Despair depending on the occurrence. 

- Shadow Monsters and Gigagord 

- Ogre 

- Cyclops


▲ Change of weather caused by Elvia Distortion Phenomenon 

▲ Rift of Despair 

Gigagord, Ogre, Cyclops 


When you defeat the monsters that appeared following the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon, then the phenomenon ends. 


Gigagord, Ogre, and Cyclops are the boss monsters that appear from the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon. They take additional damage when certain monsters in the Elvia monster zones are defeated. 


When you defeat a boss monster from the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon, you will get the “Corrupting Darkness” buff and “Remnants of Darkness” debuff. 

- Corrupting Darkness: Significantly increases your damage against Elvia Calpheon monsters. (5 min duration) 

- Remnants of Darkness: You cannot get the Corrupted Darkness effect while this effect is applied. (30 min duration)

Ancient Spirit Light 

Defeating monsters in Elvia Calpheon has a low chance to drop the "Ancient Spirit Light" item. 

Ancient Spirit Lights can be used to purify the Rifts of Despair. 

Using the Ancient Spirit Light near a Rift of Despair will weaken it and make it rain down blessings for 5 minutes. The rain grants you the "Blessing of the Ancient Spirits." 

- Blessing of the Ancient Spirits: Significantly increases your damage against Elvia Calpheon monsters while you have the blessing. 



The Ancient Spirit Light item will last for 6 hours once looted. It will disappear once the duration is over. Using the Ancient Spirit Light without a Rift of Despair nearby will not grant any buff.

◆ Recommended AP/DP

- AP: 270 

- DP: 330 


◆ Location 

Saunil Camp is southeast of Calpheon. 


◆ Intro 

The Saunils sent in additional enforcements to lay seige to the Trina Fort of Calpheon. 

The Calpheon flags planted across the Saunil Camp raise the moral of allies. The Saunils will charge with seige towers to take down the flags of Calpheon. 

When you defeat the Saunil Siege Towers, enraged Saunil soldiers will rush in to attack you and the Calpheonian soldiers. 


If the Calpheon flag is active, you can stand near it to get the “Extra AP Against Monsters +10” buff. 

The Calpheon flag activates when you defeat the attacking Saunils or when the Calpheonian soldiers come to claim the flag after a certain period of time.  

▲ The Saunil Siege Tower appears when you defeat Saunils in the region

▲ When the siege tower gets destroyed, enraged Saunil soldiers will rush in to attack. 


▲ Defeat all the Saunils rushing in!

◆ Recommended AP/DP 

- AP: 280 

- DP: 360 


◆ Location 

Rhutum Outstation is southwest of Calpheon. 


◆ Intro 

The Rhutums in Rhutum Outstation are tightly grouped together. They planted flags to mark their territory and built towers around the outskirts to watch over it. 

When the <Glorious> Rhutums that are guarding the flag are all defeated, Rhutum warriors will come rushing in to defend their territory. 

Defeat all the Rhutum warriors, then they will retreat. Destroy the supply boxes left behind to get your loot. 


Destroy the three Rhutum watchtowers installed near the Rhutum flags to summon the Rhutum Wizard. It will cast a barrier on an area that reduces damage taken from monsters for Adventurers that are inside. 


The Grand Rhutum Chief appears according to a set probability when you defeat Rhutums. 

▲ Defeating the <Glorious> Rhutums near their flag will cause Rhutum warriors to come rushing in. 

▲ Stronger Rhutums start to appear as you defeat the Rhutums that are rushing in. 


▲ Destroy the supply boxes after fending off the Rhutums to get additional loot. 

▲ [TIP] Destroy the 3 towers by the flag to make the Rhutum Wizard create a damage-reducing barrier that you can enter. 



Gehaku Plain (290 AP / 370 DP) 



◆ Recommended AP/DP 

- AP: 290 

- DP: 370 


◆ Location 

Gehaku Plain is southeast of Calpheon and south of Keplan. 


◆ Intro 

The Giants in the Gehaku Plain under the influence of Hadum are looking for their chance to gain immense power from souls scattered across the plain. 


When you defeat the Giants, the “World-weary Souls” will appear. 

They gather together and build up their resentment. Once enough resentment has gathered, <Ravening> Giants will rush in to steal the souls. From this point onward, the Giants will become stronger as more souls gather. 


While you continue to defeat the Giants rushing in, the Giant Fighter will eventually appear. Defeating the fighter has a low probability of making Gehaku appear. 


“World-weary Souls” will start to appear as you defeat the Giants.

▲ As you continue to defeat Giants near the souls, stronger Giants will appear.

▲ Eventually, the Giant Fighter will come rushing in.

You can get a buff from the freed Giant Fighter’s soul. Killing the Giant Fighter also has a low probability of making Gehaku appear.


Hexe Sanctuary (300 AP / 390 DP) 



◆ Recommended AP/DP 

- AP: 300 

- DP: 390 


◆ Location 

Hexe Sanctuary is at the southernmost region of Calpheon territory. 

◆ Intro 

The dead in the area have started to attack adventurers, commanded by the loud shouts of the <Howling Dead> Green Orc Skeleton Warrior. 

When you defeat the beings in the area, they leave a "Soul of the Dead" on the spot where they fell. Then the <Soul Harvester> Skeleton Witmirth comes to reap them. 

Once the <Soul Harvester> Skeleton Witmirth harvests enough "Souls of the Dead," it will crave the soul of a living Adventurer and attack them. 

Defeating the soul harvester will cause the souls it reaped to come bursting forth and summon more of the dead. 

The <Unstable Soul> Green Orc Skeleton Warrior that appears at this time will explode when defeated, causing massive damage to the surrounding dead. 


Once enough deathly energy has gathered, Hexe Marie creates Hexe Marie’s Domain. All the soldiers in Hexe Marie’s Domain will melt down and give rise to the <Soulless> Skeleton Warrior. Once enough deathly energy has gathered, Hexe Marie will appear herself to explode the soul of Skeleton Witmirth. 

The Skeleton Witmirth will then lose its physical form and start to call in the dead.  

Hexe Marie will then command the Skeletons near her to sacrifice themselves. The explosions will cause massive damage to the other skeletons and Adventurers in the vicinity. 


▲ Defeat the undead near <Soul Harvester> Skeleton Witmirth, who will harvest their souls.

※ It is unable to attack/take damage 

▲ Once Skeleton Witmirth has harvested enough souls, it will attack the Adventurer. Defeat Skeleton Witmirth and the undead will rush in.

▲ Continue the fight and Hexe Marie will appear to attack the Adventurer with more undead.

▲ [TIP] <Soulless> red-blinking undead will explode if they get too close to an Adventurer.

The ensuing exploson deals great damage to both Adventurers and undead nearby.

◆ Location 

Quint Hill is north of Calpheon. 


◆ Intro 

The Trolls on Quint Hill are petrified into stone. Only a few of them are active. They are protecting the “Ancient Trolls” that hold ancient powers. 

When you defeat the Trolls protecting the Ancient Troll, the Ancient Troll breaks out of its stone form. 

Ancient Trolls have stored life within them for a long period of time. This gives them the one-time ability to recover their HP when they come close to death. 

When the Ancient Troll revitalizes after a close call with death, the petrified Trolls are also risen from their slumber. 

However, the petrified Troll Shamans do not arise due to their life energy being changed. When they get destroyed, the Trolls nearby will get hit by the energy and become petrified and unble to move.  

▲ Defeat 3 Trolls near an Ancient Troll to disturb its slumber.

▲ When the Ancient Troll reaches 40% of their HP, the petrified Trolls nearby will rise and rush towards you
