Kratuga Ancient Ruins

GM Notes Oct 11, 2019, 18:20 (UTC+8)


Greetings Adventurers, 


On October 8th, Adventurers uncovered the Kratuga Ancient Ruins hidden away deep in the Hasrah Ruins.
As this place was shrouded in mystery, many Adventurers are probably curious about what lies there. 


This GM Note will detail the entirety of the Kratuga Ancient Ruins, from A to Z~ 

  1. Where and How to Enter the Kratuga Ancient Ruins

▲ Entrance to Kratuga Ancient Ruins, located deep in the Hasrah Ruins


▲ Enter the Kratuga Ancient Ruins using the Ruins Slate or Black Spirit’s Claw Piece.


Use either a Black Spirit’s Claw Piece or Unsealed Ruins Slate to temporarily unseal the entrance to the Kratuga Ancient Ruins, located deep in Hasrah Ruins.

The entrance is only temporarily unsealed, and will be resealed moments after the Adventurer enters the ruins. Requiring you to use another item to re-enter. 


Kratuga Ancient Ruins - A to Z

Unlike the other existing hunting grounds, the Kratuga Ancient Ruins have different special debuffs and a security alert system.   


  • ● Debuffs
  1. 1. Puruko is a monster that can inflict a -10 AP debuff 
  2. 2. Belloten is a monster that can inflict a knockdown debuff.   
  3. 3. Elqueesh is a monster that can inflict a stiffness debuff 


  • ● Security Alert System 

Kratuga Ancient Ruins has a security system with 3 levels. 

Stronger monsters will appear as a higher level of security is activated. 


If the level 1 security is activated, monsters will appear from different locations from previously; defeat all of these monsters within a fixed timeframe and the 2nd level of security will activate.  


At level 2 security, larger-sized Elqueesh and Belloten will appear; defeat all of these monsters within a fixed timeframe and the maximum level of security will activate. 


Once the maximum level security is activated, Laytenn will appear.
This Laytenn is stronger than the Laytenn that appears in the desert at night and has a higher chance to drop Laytenn's Power Stone


The main special items you can obtain from the Kratuga Ancient Ruins are Tungrad Earrings and Elkarr

You can process Elkarr with Black Magic Crystal - Precision, Forest Fury x3, and Magical Shard x10 in Simple Alchemy (L) to acquire Crystal of Elkarr.    


As Crystal of Elkarr has higher accuracy than the existing “Black Magic Crystal - Precision”Adventurers who previously used the “Black Magic Crystal - Precision” will probably really feel the benefits. 


Now you’ve learned everything about the Kratuga Ancient Ruins, it’s time to head off and experience this new place for yourself. 


Thank you.
