Update History

2021

Thundercloud Kutum

● Recently, archaeologists have uncovered a secret room in the Scarlet Sand Chamber that contains the immaculately preserved traces of the Ancients. Kutum, however, was overcome by the unknown energies that seeped out from this secret room, quickly turning the once guardian of the chamber into its destroyer. Having witnessed its never-before-seen destructive power, the archaeologist Desalam christened this new form as 'Thundercloud Kutum,' and has suggested restricting entry to the Scarlet Sand Chamber.
- Thundercloud Kutum will electrocute and slowly kill any Adventurer who enters the stone chambers. In this form, Kutum radiates powerful energies in a much wider range than its original form.
- Thundercloud Kutum can also awaken Ancient Weapons that lay in slumber around the stone chambers to come to its aid, and will also unleash unblockable energy storms to inflict critical damage.
● The Scarlet Sand Chamber excavation party has widened the entrance to the interior chambers for the sake of researching the relics within.
● The Adventurer who deals the final blow to Thundercloud Kutum will earn a unique Title.

● When Thundercloud Kutum appears, an ancient device will activate in the stone chamber.
Each room in the stone chamber has a different function, which are as follows:


Rooms that Cleanse Kutum's Clouds

- Thundercloud Kutum will periodically blast two different types of powerful clouds onto Adventurers.
- Adventurers must head to the appropriate location in the stone chamber to remove these clouds.
- Also, if there are three or more Adventurers in the stone chamber who have each successfully diffused the clouds, a relic will activate and imbue them with a mighty power.
- However, if an Adventurer heads into the wrong stone chamber for their cloud, the relic will react by covering said Adventurer with a death-inducing cloud.

▲ To cleanse oneself of Kutum's clouds, you must enter the room with the same color as your cloud.

 

Room that Weakens Kutum

- Once Kutum reaches a certain amount of health, it will summon Ancient Weapons to protect itself, and begin to draw energy from beneath the grounds of the stone chamber.
- Defeat the summoned Ancient Weapons to have a chance to obtain the 'Clouded Shard,' which you can place inside the 'Eye of the Ancients' to activate a relic in the largest room of the stone chamber.
- Successfully activating the relic will weaken Kutum, making it unable to move for a certain period of time.
- However, if the Ancient Weapons aren't quickly dealt with and the relic is not activated within a certain period of time, Kutum will become more powerful and begin to unleash stronger attacks.

▲ An Ancient Weapon summoned by Kutum to protect itself after losing a certain amount of HP.

 Thundercloud Kutum is the most difficult World Boss of the three bosses we've revamped so far. Compared to Bloodstorm Nouver, which has kept many Adventurers on their toes, Thundercloud Kutum's attack patterns and movements are a bit easier to learn. It is the requirement for group coordination and effort that makes it a more difficult fight. However, taking down this behemoth will grant some special loot, so we look forward to seeing many Adventurers take on this new challenge together.
