Adventurer's Guide

Kratuga Ancient Ruins

Kratuga Ancient Ruins

Dep in Hasrah Ruins, a group of adventurers have uncovered the entrance to the now dubbed Kratuga Ancient Ruins.

As this place is shrouded in mystery, many adventurers have ventured inside curious about what lies inside.



Where and How to Enter the Kratuga Ancient Ruins

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

The entrance is only temporarily unsealed and will be resealed moments after the adventurer enters the ruins. It requires you to use another item to re-enter each time you leave.

Unsealed Ruins Slate can be obtained by arranging three Sealed Ruin Slate. These can be dropped by the monsters within the Monster Zone.


Monster Types and Levels

Basic Information

Mostly lvl 60 – 64 monsters.



This is no mere continuation of the Hasrah Ancient Ruins, so do not enter it expecting the same kind of difficulty.

This Monster Zone features an unique security system with different levels of increasing difficulty (explained blow).

Puruko can inflict a –10 AP debuff.

Belloten can inflict a knockdown debuff.

Elqueesh can inflict a stiffness debuff.


Level/Gear Requirements

As previously mentioned, this is no unexplored area of the Hasrah Ancient Ruins. You’ll find yourself competing with monsters on the same difficulty as the harshest monster zones of Valencia.

It is recommended that your character is above 250 AP to venture into these ruins.


Security System

Kratuga Ancient Ruins has a security system with three levels.

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


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

At level 2 security, larger-sized Elqueesh and Belloten titled <Ancient Destruction Weapon> will appear. Defeat all the monsters within a fixed timeframe and the maximum level of security will activate.

Once the maximum level security is activated, Laytenn <Ancient Extermination Weapon> 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.


Major Item Drops

Laytenn’s Power Stone (from the maximum level security Laytenn)

Tungrad Earring


Sealed Ruins Slate (arrange 3 to create Unsealed Ruins Slate)

Yona’s Fragment

Traveler’s Map

Forbidden Book

Black Stone (Weapon)

Black Stone (Armor)


User Density

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

You can process Elkarr with Black Magic Crystal – Precision, Forest Fury x 2, and Magical Shard x 10 in Simple Alchemy (L) to acquire Crystal of Elkarr.

The Crystal of Elkarr has higher accuracy than the existing “Black Magic Crystal – Precision" so adventurers who previously used “Black Magic Crystal – Precision" in their weapons will probably really feel the benefits.


The higher chance of obtaining Laytenn’s Power Stone, an additional source for Tungrad Earrings, and the unique security system will likely attract adventurers from all over.


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