Atoraxxion: Vahmalkea

● Atoraxxion - Vahmalkea, the Last Stronghold built to fend off the dark invaders, has been discovered.
- Added the Black Spirit main quest "[5-person Co-op] The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion" to begin your expedition to Vahmalkea. The requirements for this quest are as follows:
- Lv. 57 or higher
- Completed the questline "Invitation from I"
- Completed either the awakening or succession questline
- You can continue to enter Atoraxxion after obtaining the Knowledge about "Talibre's Tear" and "Talibre's Door" which can be obtained during the Atoraxxion main questline by going to the Ancient Stone Chamber and making more of the item "Talibre's Tear."
- Created a new Knowledge category for Knowledge pertaining to Atoraxxion Vahmalkea.
- The quest "[Atoraxxion] Vaha's Time Capsule," which is the last quest in the main questline "[5-person Co-op] The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion," can only be completed once per family.
* If you wish to return to the Ancient Stone Chamber while in Atoraxxion, you can go to the first Sol Magia located at the entrance of Vaha's Sky and interact with it by selecting "[Teleport] To the Ancient Stone Chamber."
 The Atoraxxion main questline requires five Adventurers to proceed as it is very difficult for a single Adventurer to complete on their own. Additionally, we have added voice-overs to all the major lines for the first time in Black Desert history to help our Adventurers get truly immersed in this content. We wish you good luck on your adventure with the adorable member of the Secret Guards, Yaz!
● Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is mostly made of normal fields. Adventurers will be able to see other Adventurers that are in the same server. However, the final boss "Apex Lucretia" in Vahmalkea is in an instanced area, so Adventurers will have to focus their efforts to defeat it with their party.
- In the normal field of Vahmalkea, you will see elite Ancient Weapons (marked with the star icon on the minimap). They are called: Cetus, Monoceros, Lacerta, Creomar, and Putrakium. Each of them have a particular weakness that will allow you to defeat them quickly. Additionally, the bosses Krahtenn and Ahtenn that appear can be defeated using special tactics.
- The final boss "Apex Lucretia" is extremely powerful. It is crucial that you work together with your party to defeat it. You will not be able resurrect while combat is ongoing. When all party members die, the fight will reset and the party will be able to try again.
- Death penalties are applied when characters die in the normal fields. However, death penalties will not apply to deaths against the final boss "Apex Lucretia."
The ultimate goal in Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is to enter and defeat the final boss. You will need to fight the regular ancient weapons to get items that act as keys to the next area. Progress through each of these areas to eventually reach "Vaha's Cradle" when the final boss awaits our Adventurers. Also, you can log into an Elvia Realm Server to fight against even more difficult ancient weapons and the final boss "Apex Lucretia." Therefore, we recommend getting used to the normal version first before going into the harder Elvia Realm version. P.S. - Here's a small tip for our Adventurers entering Vahmalkea with their party: You can press SHIFT+` to ping a location for your party in Vahmalkea!
● Atoraxxion Vahmalkea is divided into multiple areas by the "Darkened Dawn" (a type of wall) to fend off the dark invaders more effectively.
- Each of these areas are blocked off from each other through an ancient piece of tech called "Sol Magia." To take control of the "Sol Magia," you will need special items that act as keys.

* All the loot obtained from Atoraxxion (except the item "Lucretia's Dagger" and the loot dropped by the final boss "Apex Lucretia") will be removed once you leave "Vaha's Paradise," which can be entered after defeating "Apex Lucretia."
- The party leader must have the required key items to take control of the "Sol Magia" (except for the item "Lucretia Dagger").

● "Vaha's Cold Thorn" is a currency in Atoraxxion Vahmalkea that is obtained from defeating Ancient Weapons. It can be exchanged for various items at the Atoraxxion Exchange. Atoraxxion Exchanges are located in Vaha's Sky and Vaha's Heart.

● Vaha's Spear has been activated in Vaha's Sky and Vaha's Query of Atoraxxion Vahmalkea as dark invaders were detected.
 Vaha's Spear is a trap device that can be found in the earlier areas of Vahmalkea. Adventurers will need to keep their eyes peeled for these devices while venturing through Atoraxxion Vahmalkea.
● The normal fields in Atoraxxion are different from other monster zones in that you will not get loot from the regular ancient weapons. The only monster that drops loot is the final boss. Additionally, after defeating the final boss "Apex Lucretia," you will be able to obtain "special loot" in Vaha's Paradise twice a week.
- The "special loot" can be obtained by completing the following quests with the "Vaha's Time Capsule" that protects Vaha's Paradise.

 During last year's Calpheon Ball, we introduced Atoraxxion to our Adventurers for the first time. Now, we have finally brough this update to you! Black Desert provides a variety of party content like Savage Rift, Gyfin Rhasia Temple, Altar of Blood, Olun's Valley, and party monster zones for co-op play. Still, many of our Adventurers wanted more party content that was even more fun. Therefore, we decided last winter to create a brand new co-op dungeon. Something that is quite different from all the other content we have released until now. We have contemplated for a long time on how to bring the awesome fun of Black Desert action to co-op play in a natural manner. We are deeply moved by this momentous occasion, where at the end of our long deliberation, we are now able to present to you the results of our struggle. Thank you, Adventurers, for waiting and trusting us. We simply hope you will enjoy it. We will return with our next biome, this one underwater themed: ""Sycrakea.""

 

FYI - ""Atoraxxion"" actually means ""Ator's Paradise"" in the ancient language.
