More About the Dark Rift

The Dark Rift is a unique type of content that opens up at certain periods of time. When Dark Rifts appear, monsters will appear in designated locations. If you defeat these monsters, you can obtain Boxes of the Dead and a variety of enhancement materials.


① By default, there are 12 monsters (Red Nose, Ruins Guard Tower, Dastard Bheg, etc.) that can spawn from the Dark Rift. And if you were to defeat Red Nose for instance, Red Nose will reappear after some time has passed.


You can see the monsters that have appeared from the Dark Rift via the following:

▲ Go to ESC Menu -> Adventure -> Dark Rift

 ▲ Press the Dark Rift icon located at the bottom right of the screen.

② Dark Rift monsters will automatically spawn when you go near the spawn location.

▲ Press the arrow icon next to the monster’s name


▲ Or press the Dark Rift icon marked on the World Map (M) to find the location! 

* Please note that if you’ve already defeated Red Nose, Red Nose’s icon will not appear. 


③ When you arrive at the location where Red Nose spawns, a vivid message will appear at the top of your screen.

▲ A Boss Appearing from the Dark Rift.

④ The rewards you can obtain will differ depending on the Dark Rift monsters and their levels of difficulty.
▲ You can obtain the Box of the Desperate Dead from Red Nose and the Box of the Distorted Dead from Ferrid

▼ View the items you can obtain from the Boxes of the Dead:

* You must face Dark Rift monsters alone! Party members or other Adventurers can’t help you!

* You will not receive a death penalty for dying to a Dark Rift monster, so don’t worry about dying!
