Sycraia Underwater Ruins (Upper Zone)

Last Edited on : May 28, 2019, 11:39 (UTC+8)

Adventurers will find <Ancient Weapons> such as Damaged Pirashes, Damaged Lykins and Damaged Kurebas within the ruins that have lost their powers while defending the place against the threats from Protty Cave and outside invaders.

They are heavily damaged and are no longer able to use their powerful attacks,

but they still pose a substantial threat to Adventurers.


There are scores of them to contend with, so let your guard down for even a moment and you’re likely to face an endless onslaught and a surefire death.


The entrance to Sycraia Underwater Ruins can be difficult to find for first-time visitors. You’ll need to find the location shown in the world map (Hotkey: M) below.


▲ Location of Sycraia Underwater Ruins in the world map.


Go to the location marked in the world map, then you need to dive underwater to find the entrance.

There are four entrances to the Sycraia Underwater Ruins: North, South, East, and West.

If you’re having a hard time finding an entrance, don’t forget to come back up for air before continuing your search.

Also note that if you try to enter the ruins through any other way than these four entrances, you will be blocked by a force field.


You can recover Stamina by pressing “Q” while floating above the water.

Of course, the preferred way of reaching this location would be by ship, as you will be able to simply return to the ship and recover if you start to run low on stamina or breath.
