Altar of Training


The Altar of Training is where descendants of the Goddess Sylvia go for their coming-of-age.  


Adventurers can form parties to pass the five training stages, battle the final Boss, and receive exclusive Rewards.


How to Begin the Altar of Training

There are currently 3 methods to participate in the Altar of Training.


The first method is the through the Kamasylvia Main Quest. Using a Character that is Lv.58 and above to start the Kamasylvia Main Quest and completing up to the [Ancient Mirumok Ruins] Quest within in will enable you to accept  NPC Milford’s [[Co-op] Proof of Courage] Quest.


After accepting the Quest, interact with  NPC Milford and use 10 Energy to get the Item ‘Valtarra : Introductory Training Manual.’ This Main Quest can be carried out only once per Character, so recurrence is unavailable.


The second method is to carry out the Recurring Quest [[Training Quest] Valtarra - Ruins Sacrament]. A Character that is Lv.58 and above and has completed the last stage of the Kamasylvia Main Quest [Token of Lemoria Guards] can can carry out this Recurring Quest once every 3 days via NPC Milford. After accepting the Quest, interact with NPC Milford and use 100 Energy to get the Item ‘Valtarra : Training Manual.’


The final method is to carry out the Weekly Quest  [[Training Quest]: Valtarra - To a Higher Place]. This can only be done by a Character that is Lv.58 and above, and has completed the [[Training Quest] Valtarra - Ruins Sacrament] from the second method. When you accept the Quest from NPC Milford , you will immediately get the ‘Valtarra:  Advanced Training Manual’ Item.


Right-click the Training Manual Item gained via any of the above methods to mark the location of the Altar and then Right-click the Training Manual again when you have arrived at the location to begin Altar of Training. These Training Manuals can only be used with by a party of 2 or more.

▲  The Locations of the Altar of Training and NPC Milford


▲  Soon after using the Altar of Training Item, Time Attack will begin.


First, arrive at the ‘Valtarra - Altar of Training’ North of the Manshaum Forest and West of the Valtarra Mountains. Use the training manual items as a party and an introductory message will appear, beginning the first training stage.


The objective of this Quest is to protect the summoned Sacraments from waves of monsters. If the Sacrament’s HP becomes depleted, you have failed the training. If you would like to try again, interact with NPC Milford and use Energy to receive the ‘Training Manual’ Item again.


However, ‘Valtarra : Advanced Training Manual’ is only available through a weekly Recurring Quest so if you fail it, you will not be given a chance to try again.

 ▲  If you have failed the training , you must start over.


The Altar of Training has five stages that that will begin sequentially without pause. After fighting the waves of monsters for a while, there will be a message announcing  that the second training stage will soon begin and directions will appear to arrive at the second training site. At the destination, another Sacrament will be summoned and monsters will try to destroy it, the same as before.


Since the second training stage can begin before the first has be completed, if you abandon the first Sacrament because the second training stage has begun, the monsters left behind at the first training site will destroy the first Sacrament and you will fail.


If there are too many monsters left at the first training site and you decide to stay, then the monsters at the second training site will destroy the second Sacrament and you will fail. Therefore, you must be able to complete the first training stage and get to the second training site before it’s too late.    


To be successful, it is useful to have party members with high AP and have many party members in general.


During the first training stage, ‘Bounds of the Forest,’ Treants, Mimuroks, and other tree-like monsters will appear. As the stage nears its end, a Boss Dim Tree Spirit will appear and attack the adventurers.


During second training stage, ‘Flying Maverick,’ Gargoyles, Harpies and other winged monsters will strike from the air, culminating with Boss King Griffin appearing.


During the third training stage, ‘Earth’s Trial,’ Golems will attack, ending with Boss Moghulis appearing. Introduction to the Altar of Training will be complete after this third training stage. However, those participating in the Altar of Training and Advanced Altar of Training must go on to complete the fourth and fifth training stages.


During the fourth training stage, ‘Verge of Death,’ Skeletons and Cultists will appear, followed by Boss Hexe Marie. 


During the final training stage, ‘Guardian of the Ruins,’ Hystria, Aakman, Hasrah, and other Ancient Weapons that appear around Ancient Ruins will attack, and the final Boss Ancient Puturum will try to finish you.


If you successfully protect all five Sacraments, the training will be complete and you can receive EXP and other great rewards from NPC Milford.


▲  No time to rest! The next training stage has already begun. Follow the location guide.

▲ Working together with your party members is crucial.

▲  If you successfully defend the Sacrament, the Boss will appear.


▲  Tremble before the final Boss ‘Ancient Puturum’



Reward for Completing the Altar of Training

The Altar of Training boasts a higher difficulty than the usual or Boss Summon Scroll fights. Especially, if you are doing the ‘Valtarra : Advanced Training Manual,’ even with five skilled adventurers completing the final stage will not be easy.


However, keep in mind the exclusive rewards for completing the training! The Altar of Training gives great rewards befitting its high difficulty.


Introduction to Altar of Training, a part of of the Kamasylvia Main Quest, has the following rewards for quest completion: Combat EXP, Contribution EXP, Black Stone (Weapon) X5, and Black Stone (Armor) X5.


Altar of Training, which recurs every three days, gives the Combat EXP and ‘Valtarra Training Reward Bundle’ rewards. From this Bundle, you can receive Black Stone (Weapon), Black Stone (Armor), Hunter’s Seal, and Forest Fury.


The Advanced Altar of Training, which recurs once per week,  doesn’t have additional rewards. However, you will receive a special Seal Item after defeating the boss of each training level.


These Seal Items can be combined to create a Token Item. Right-clicking each Token Item in the Inventory will give you a Quest. The Quest can be completed by interacting with NPC Milford and you will receive a Reward Bundle corresponding to the Token Item.


If you open the Reward Bundle, you will receive a Valtarran Scattered Light Fragment. However, there is a certain chance that you will drop the Courser Awakening Box. If you collect Valtarran Scattered Light Fragments X20, you can exchange them for a Valtarra Eclipsed Belt via NPC Milford. You also have a slight chance of getting a ‘Valtarra Eclipsed Belt’ from the Reward Bundle.
