Adventurer's Guide

Mediah Leveling

If you’re around Level 51 ~ 52 you should move on to Mediah. You’ll probably get to experience the [Abandoned Iron Mine] first if you follow the quests, but it doesn’t really matter where you go first depending on your level or equipment level. Mediah has been known as uncivilized land, and because of that, the hunting grounds of Mediah has a very different atmosphere from Calpheon. You'll also gain more EXP and loot from here, so consider it a stepping stone towards becoming a mid-level player.  

This guide also talks about the [Kuit Islands], which is not a mart of Mediah but has similar level of difficulty. The [Kuit Islands] is the den of the Cox Pirates and is located at the northwest of the continent. You need a ship to get here.

 

Mediah Level 51 ~ Level 56 Hunting Guide

 

 

 

 

Abandoned Iron Mine


Back in the days, this was the main mining node in Mediah, but now it has been taken over by the Barbarians who came from the North. There are no rules here: only the strong ones survive. It’s always noisy here.

Monster Types and Level

1) Basic Information

Mostly Level. 50 ~ Level 53 monsters

Melee: Rhutum Guard, Red Orc Guard, Red Orc Sentinel, Saunil Guard, Khuruto Chaser, Khuruto Guard, Rhutum Sheriff, Saunil Sheriff, Khuruto Executor, Khuruto Sheriff

Ranged: Rhutum Chief Priest, Thunder Drummer, Lightning Trumpeter

Others: Tacky Fire Cannon, Tacky Stone Wagon

Violent (Star): Imp Work Supervisor, Troll Work Supervisor

 

2) Features

This hunting ground has high monster density, but since the roads are spiral it might be difficult to come up with a hunting route.

This is the largest hunting ground in the entire territory. So it’s important to plan where to start hunting.

You can get Black Spirit’s daily quests along with the battle quests from Abun. 

You can also get the Asula’s Red Eye Necklace that increases AP by 11 and DP by 3

 

Level/Equipment Requirements

Normal type of monsters are not that difficult to deal with once you get to the Minimum/recommended stats, but the violent monsters can be scary. So you need to be careful of the violent monsters if you just accomplished the minimum stats.

Strategies

1) Precautions

Here, you can find both the melee and ranged monsters, as well as the Thunder Drummer and Lightning Trumpeter playing music (?). The best way to get rid of them is to corner the melee monsters to where the ranged monsters are.

The Violent (Star) Imp Work Supervisor and Troll Work Supervisor provides various kinds of loot. But you should be careful since you can get caught between them and get debuffed.

The ‘Asula’s Red Eye Necklace’ is dropped by a normal monster rather than a violent one, and it’s one of the major equipment that gets dropped.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

If your movement speed is fad, the pit inside the Abandoned Iron Mine could be a good option. If not, it’s better to settle around the Saunil District node or the Abandoned Iron Mine Entrance node.

 

Δ Because the hunting ground is so large, it’s important to determine where you want to start.

It is the first hunting ground a player will experience in Mediah if they follow the main quest. There are adventurers who exclusively seek out the violent monsters, so you might run into them from time to time. But since the area is so big, you’ll have enough space to hunt.

If you run into someone who has a similar hunting speed, say hi! “Did you graduate from Calpheon? Nice to meet you!”

 

 

 

 

Manes Hideout


It is unclear when, where, or how the Manes appeared. Ecologists say that it’s hard to believe that hyenas just evolved into human-like form, and started walking on two feet.

One thing for certain. They don’t act dirty like the hyenas do.

It’s where you can do daily quests from Black Spirit, and you can do other quests at Tarif as well!

 

Level/Equipment Requirements

It’s a hunting ground with a mix of melee and ranged monsters. Because the Violent Giant Mane will occasionally appear, players with minimum stats should stay alert. You should get rid of the Agile Manes first since they bother you in close range.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

Monsters are spread out pretty evenly, so hunting efficiency will be similar for any route you decide to take. If your equipment level is at a recommended level, aim for the southern part of the river stream, where there are a lot of Giant Manes.


Δ Move around the entire area and hunt!

Adventurers who just arrived at Mediah come here since the EXP efficiency drops after you reach Level 52~ 53. If the all the hunting grounds of Mediah are crowded, you should hunt here since it’s close to Tarif and you can get items such as the Forbidden book and Grunil Amor.

Also, you might get lucky and get the Belt or Necklace of Shultz the Gladiator. These are the most cost-effective accessory that you can get before you get the top-level accessories.

 

 

 

 

Wandering Rogue Den


These rogues used to wander around Mediah. But recently they set up a camp on the cliff of Junaid River. There has been rumors saying that they are coming up with an evil plan. But it’s all rumors since no one was able to return.

You should get to know the geography for future Node Wars! (It’s very important)

You can carry out quests from various places such as Tarif, Highland Junction and Kasula Farm.

There’s a specific route that’s quite good for earning silver coins. A lot of high level layers come here too.

 

Level/Equipment Requirements

You may suffer many attacks from the ranged monsters if you’re not familiar with the geography, so having high DP will increase the hunting efficiency. A lot of monsters use Stiff/Stun skill, so it would be good to have resistance towards these skills.

Strategies

Always be careful around the Violent Wandering Rogue Giant Soldier and the Wandering Rogue Elementalist since they have high attack power. It is best to take out the Wandering Rogue Elementalist first. For the Wandering Rogue Giant Soldier, since they have high HP, you should attack them from behind using skills such as knock down.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

There is one spot with high monster density deep inside the Den. If you start from here, you’ll have more efficiency than starting from the outside. The Belt and Neckless of Shultz the Gladiator will get dropped from time to time. These items are cost effective, so you can earn quite a bit of silver coins by selling them.

Marni's 2nd Lab


It’s the Mediah’s lab where the mad scientist Marni carried out a research. It seems like they built a building on top of the abandoned mine, and no one knows what’s in the basement. This place is full of mutant monsters even more advanced than the ones in the Keplan base.

Helms Post


Home of the barbaric Helm tribe native to Mediah. Usually, they aren’t particularly friendly to outsiders. It is said that they used to be the Dwarves who lived in the South Dragan. Some suspect the reason they came up here was because of some internal conflict within the tribe, but only the Helm Tribe knows since they don’t get along with the outsides.

You need to take the Helm Golem that are hiding everywhere pretty seriously even if you fulfilled the recommended stats.

You can get the Asula’s Red Eye Earring which has the AP of 7 and Max HP increase of 25 as well as Asula’s Red Eye Ring that has AP of 7 and DP of 2 pretty easily here.

Strategies

1) Precautions

Most of the monsters have low DP, but they have high AP. So you should learn the skills(cast Debuff skills well, acquire more DP) that can put down their attacks.

But you should be careful of the Helm Golem(Level 59) that are distributed among the hunting grounds. They have extremely high HP and AP and cast magical skills from a distance, so even a player with the recommended stats can get killed instantly. If you don’t think you can win, just run for your life.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The Northwest part where there are a lot of monsters is most popular, but other places are not that different. The Helms Post has various kinds of loots and you might get lucky enough to get the ‘Scarla Necklace’ and earn some money. If you have a pretty good attack power and the recommended stats, you can gain pretty good EXP.

Elric Shrine


It is a temple on the eastern hill of the Rumbling Land. The followers of evil god has taken over the place.

The monster density is higher at the Canyon of Corruption than the area around the Shrine node, so it’s more popular. The EXP gain is not that bad compared to Sausan Garrison, so it’ll be a good hunting ground any time.

This hunting ground is quite attractive because you may obtain ‘Asula’s Red Eye Belt’ that has the effect of increasing AP by 6 and the weight by 100LT. You can also get the ‘Outlaw's Ring’ that has the effect of increasing AP by 3 and DP by 4

On your first visit, you might be taken back by the ranged attacks of the Sausan Sniper and the Cannoneer’s attack. You should get rid of them together by cornering the melee monsters to the where the Snipers and Cannoneers are.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

It is not a bad idea to hunt at the outskirt of the garrison, but if you go inside following the route by the cliff, there will be higher density of monsters. You’ll be able to hunt for a long time here.


Δ Sausan Garrison is an extremely efficient hunting ground for level up.

During night time, there might be more adventurers than monsters. If you get stressed about being around too many adventurers, you should go to other places like the Elric Shrine or Helms Post. It’s a place where all the adventurers above Level 55 wish they were the only there.

Strategies

1) Precautions

The Helm Devourers and Crushers are powerful and are immune to Debuff skills such as knockdown, bound, and floating. So try and use skills that inflict stun or stiffness when you’re hunting them. Since there are many Helm Golems that roam around the area, you should always be cautious even if you have the recommended stats.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The Helm underground dungeon has a spiral structure with the Helm Golems gathered up near the bottom. The monster density is pretty high as well, so if you’re confident we recommend you to go to the bottom part.  


Δ There are other entrances, but this is the easiest one.

[Trend] User Density

Despite the low EXP efficiency, there is a constant stream of adventurers that come here for the good loot and the chance to hit a ‘jackpot’. This hunting ground would be a good option for you if you’re powerful enough to take down the Helm Golems without a sweat. Try to get both the ‘Scarla Necklace’ and ‘Ancient Guardian's Seal’.

Strategies

1) Precautions

Use the Golem Summoning Stone to hunt a large number of monsters at once. The summoning stone sill summon Wilderness/Gravestone/Stone Golems when it is damaged. However, note that if you eliminate the summoning stone first, all the summoned Golems will vanish and you won’t get any EXP or loot.

You must learn to start off with defeating the summoned Golems first, and to get the summoning stone later. You should hit the summoning stone and run to a faraway place. Wilderness Golem usually attack using knockdown debuff, so it might be useful to use the ‘Topaz Necklace of Regeneration’ that gives +30% Knockdown/Bound resistance. Other food/elixirs that reduce various damages will be useful as well. Once you’ve defeated a Golem (Wilderness/Gravestone/Stone), don’t forget to spend 1 Energy to gather (Bare Hands) it.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route


Δ The popular Wilderness Golem are found at the bottom part, and the top part is mostly Golem Summon Tower.

[Trend] User Density

This is a hunting place that is popular for adventurers who are at the recommended level with adequate equipment. It’s because the fun of wiping out a mass number of golems, the sensation of fighting against something huge, and the ‘Sharp Thrill’ of gathering from a Golem works harmoniously together. The Bensho’s Necklace that gets dropped sometimes are a big bonus as well.

So you should visit here after you have the adequate items and you’re pretty used to your character. You’ll have different kind of fun than Mediah hunting grounds.

 

 

 

 

Kuit Islands (Pirate Lair)


It’s said that this place used to be the home of island residents, but now it’s taken over by the Cox Pirates. This is actually the main outpost of the Cox Pirates.

Calpheon plans to subjugate the whole island since this power is too strong, but it’s not easy since the so-called invincible Trina Marine Knights are having difficulty defeating the,.

Melee 2: Megimegi, One-Eyed Outlaw, Captain Khuru, Iron Combatant, Elite Sentinel, Crazy Jack

Ranged: Drunk Treasure Hunter

Others: Pirate Watchtower, Pirate Treasure Chest, Cox Prison

 

2) Features

It’s the only hunting ground among the islands. You need to travel for quite a long time on the boat.

The unique drops here are beyond your expectations: there are four types of rings and earrings of the Coral accessories series.

General Goods Vendor, Blacksmith, and Currency Exchange are at the entrance of the island, so you can hunt for a very long time.

You might get to enjoy other contents since you have to go across the ocean.

 

Level/Equipment requirements

The monster density is pretty high so you should have the recommended AP and DP. If you are hunting as a part it would be okay to be between the minimum stats and the recommended stats, but if you want to get some results hunting alone, you should be above the recommended stats. If you have what is commonly referred to as the ‘DUO Set’ between the adventurers, then this hunting ground should be neither easy nor difficult.

Strategies

1) Precautions

Since Crazy Jack, Elite Sentinel, Iron Combatant, and Megimegi are immune to debuffs, you might fall into a dangerous situation if you don’t use evading or blocking skills. You should also watch out for the Treasure Hunters as they have powerful ranged attacks and are difficult to see due to their small size. In other words, it’s best to take care of them first.


Δ You should take care of the pesky little ones first.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

The Kuit Islands are where human type monsters (12 o’clock direction) coexist with demihuman and other human type monsters (6 o’clock direction, Padix Island). The Northern part became denser after the update on May 2016. So if you’re here to hunt monsters, the north side is recommended rather than the south area. However, if the north area is too crowded with adventurers, southern part wouldn’t be bad either.


Δ Monster density is higher compared to other hunting grounds.

Main Quest

You can get the ‘Pirate Island Main Quest’ that leads you toward Kuit Islands from the NPC Rubin from Calpheon City. Rubin is a small kid standing in front of the Storage NPC Basquean Ljurik. If you talk to him when your level is above 53 he will give you the [Pirates That Threaten Calpheon] quest. Follow this quest series and you should be able to get to Kuit Islands.

 

Available Titles

You can obtain various titles in the Kuit Islands that matches the size of the island. The titles such as ‘Hee-hee-hee’ and ‘Rum Nymph’ are particularly popular as they show the unique characteristics of a pirate.

Available Titles: Petty Thief, Raid Captain, Amazon, Talent Above Talent, Sweeper, Pirate Exterminator, Dominator of the Red Island, Marine Fighter, Spicy Stew Chef, Wink Girl, Wink Boy, Captain Khuru, Drunk Pirate, The Treasure Hunters, Pirate Watcher, Hee-hee-hee, Rum Nymph, Guardian of the Sea, Heart of the Sea, Admiral

 

[Trend] User Density

This hunting ground was never that popular since it’s not easy to get to.

However, shops (so that users can purchase HP potions, repair equipment, exchange silver coins) were added and the number of monsters grew after the recent update. Now Kuit Islands is getting popular again.

This place is good for everything if you an adventurer who conquered most of Mediah. You can level up and go farming monsters. You could go alone, but if you make a party with another user the EXP efficiency will be much higher even if your level is above 55. You’ll be able to get a variety of items as well as rare unique coral accessories and earn some money.

Pirates tend to drop all different kinds of currencies (Trade items). If you collect them and sell them through Node Investment, you’ll get to earn both the silver coins and the Training EXP.

If you want to forget about everything and focus on hunting, get on a ship right now and run to Kuit Islands. You won’t have to be startled by the sound of Kzarka crying here.

Strategies

1) Precautions

It’s a small place with a lot of monsters.

A level 58 monster appears, so you might not win if you don’t prepare well.

Since the movement distance is short, you’ll be able to stop the unnecessary consumption of HP if you’re able to get the Shultz Guard Sniper who attacks from behind.

All the monsters that appear are human type,

So combat rations of the knights and the Elixir of Human Hunt will increase the efficiency a lot.

 

You can earn a steady income from the various items coming from Sausan Garrison. But you might get items such as Belt of Shultz the Gladiator and Necklace of Shultz the Gladiator so it’s a pretty good hunting ground.

 

2) Key Locations and Hunting Route

This place is the so-called go board. There are some places with high monster density. So if you have the ability, the efficiency is pretty much the same anywhere.

The place with the highest density is where there are a lot of red tents.

If there are a lot of adventurers, you should move along the costa lines.

▶ There are many monsters in a small area compared to the Sausan Garrison.

If you want to explain the Shultz Guard area with one sentence, it would be ‘Above Sausan level and under Valencia’. Also the Belt and Necklace of Shultz that you can get at a low chance are one of the most cost-effective items before you get the highest level of accessories, so you should try to get them if you can.
