Make sure to read the pointers below — things you should and shouldn’t do — to be efficient in achieving these goals. What are the expectations of Giran Territory?

Act 4:

For levels 120-140, do these daily tasks constantly: Main / Daily / Weekly / Sub Quests, Trials of Experience, Elite Dungeon (Hot Time), Extraction Pit with Einhasad’s Blessing, Fireplace, Exp Box purchases. You will be spending most of your time in Giran Dominion, Deathly Fog Shores and Ivory Tower Catacomb 1.

  1. Finish daily tasks inside the Dungeon. Each area gives out specific rewards upon completion:
    • Daily Dungeon
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: transition from Hard to Very Hard. Use buffs and Soulshots if necessary.
      • Your Weapon should be at least SR-Grade lvl. 30, and Armors/Accessories at R-Grade lvl. 30. To help achieve this goal faster, use red diamonds to reset and clear the daily dungeon every Tuesday (Weapon), Thursday (Armor), Saturday (Accessories), and Sunday (Selection Box).
      • Elite Weapon – For every reward that comes with an Upgrade Stone Selection Box, always choose Weapon Upgrade Stones. You will need them for Attribute Enhancements and Limit Break (see Forge Guide).
    • Tower of Insolence
      • Runes: Upgrade to at least to 4 core levels for each page available
    • Elite Dungeon
      • Use Hot Time (30 min allotted daily) to gain massive amounts of Exp and Clan resources.
      • Spend 200 red diamonds for an additional 30 minute of Hot Time (for a grand total of 1 hour).
    • Extraction Pit
      • Always use Einhasad’s Blessing for bonus Exp. Use the remaining Exp increase buff farming on Field Monsters within 4 levels of your current level.
      • Craft Elixirs for permanent stat increases in order of priority ATK > DEF > HP > MP.
    • Temple Guardian
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Hard (Use Soulshots to ensure clearance)
      • Reward: Select Weapon S-Grade Varnish
    • Adena Vault
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Hard
      • Reward: 105,500 Adena from Auto-clear (clearing manually and opening treasure chests rewards you with more Adena upon clearance)
    • Trials of Experience
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Hard
    • Summoning Circle
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Normal (Use Soulshots to ensure clearance)
  2. Continue investing in Elite Weapon upgrades (see Forge Guide)
    1. Level up your Weapon to max. Use spare item drops and varnishes as level-up material.
    2. Aim to enhance Attributes and Limit Break.
    3. Elite Weapon should be at least Enhancement level +13. Do not use Maph’s Protection (Save it for higher Enhancement levels)
  3. Armor and accessories should be at least R-Grade lvl. 30 with +8 Enhancement levels.
  4. Collect sub-quest scrolls by killing Field monsters close to your level. Bind C and B grade scrolls and only perform A grade scrolls. Take note that sub-quests give massive amounts of Adena and Exp. You can reset the sub-quest count three times using red diamonds, which will help you perform 20 sub-quests per day:
    1. Level 120 A-Grade scroll – 100k Exp, 23k Adena
    2. Level 135 A-Grade scroll – 115k Exp, 24k Adena
  5. Level up your skills and follow the prioritization (check out our Class Guides)
  6. Donate to your clan and earn clan coins. Use those coins to buy Exp. Boxes, then Elixir Essence Selection Boxes, then Ripped Recipe Fragments.
  7. Continue grinding Field Monsters within 4 levels of your current level to get a good amount of exp and loot (Look especially to acquire subquest scrolls).
  8. Collect daily rewards from Challenge and Event tabs under the User Interface (UI) menu. Collect bonus points from daily Achievements.
  9. Battle in the Arena and collect Honor Points
  10. Summoning Stones: Prioritize cores that give bonuses in P.Atk/M.Atk and other offensive stats (Penetration, Crit Rate, Accuracy)

Act 5:

For Levels 140-160, keep on doing the daily dungeon tasks from Act 4. Participate in Temporal Rift activities and Open Sieges. You will be spending most of your time in Deathly Fog Shores, Devil’s Isle, and Ivory Tower Catacomb 1 & 2.

  1. Open Siege – Participate to collect Adena, War Hero’s Loot Box and Steam Beetle Summoning Stones.
  2. Temporal Rift – Upon reaching 300k CP, participate in the Party Dungeon and clear Altar of Madness and Countess of Blood’s Boudoir. Collect clan yarns to upgrade your Adventurer’s Cloak and/or Blood Ranger’s Cloak (See our cloak guide for more details).
  3. Finish daily tasks inside the Dungeon. Each area gives out specific rewards upon completion:
    • Daily Dungeon
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Very Hard. Use buffs and Soulshots if necessary.
    • Tower of Insolence
      • Runes: Upgrade to at least to 5-6 core levels for each available page.
    • Elite Dungeon
    • Extraction Pit
    • Temple Guardian
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Very Hard (Use Soulshots to ensure clearance)
      • Reward: Select Weapon R-Grade Varnish
    • Adena Vault
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: transition from Hard to Very Hard
      • Reward: 148,500 Adena from Auto-clear (clearing manually and opening treasure chests rewards you with more Adena upon clearance)
    • Trials of Experience
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: Very Hard
    • Summoning Circle
      • Dungeon Difficulty selection: transition from Normal to Hard (Use Soulshots to ensure clearance)
  4. Follow the Equipment Substat prioritization based on your character (see Class guides). Roll for Exp. gain increase to maximize exp/kill bonus percentage (~5.5% for weapon, ~1.8% for armors and accessories, up to +22% bonus exp. in total).
  5. Collect sub-quest scrolls from killing Field monsters close to your level. Bind C and B grade scrolls and only perform A grade scrolls. Take note that sub-quests give massive amounts of Adena and Exp. You can reset sub-quest count three times using red diamonds, which will help you perform 20 sub-quests per day:
    1. Level 150 A-Grade scroll – 130k Exp, 25k Adena
  6. Make effective use of your Hot Time in Elite Dungeon. Solo farm to hoard the kill experience for yourself (fighting in a party distributes the experience to the group). Elite equipment with higher attribute enhancement levels will be extremely advantageous. Magical (Red) equipment will also be useful because some of the monsters in the Elite Dungeon are Magical Type (see Grinding Area chart), but it will be hard to enhance their attributes.
    1. Elite Equipment Lvl. 10 Bonus on Elite Monsters: +50% Damage (Weapon), -5% Incoming Damage (each Armor)
    2. Magical (Red) Equipment Lvl. 10 Bonus on Magical Monsters: +75% Damage (Weapon), -10% Incoming Damage (each Armor)

Weapon Prioritization/Recommendation and Effectiveness:

  1. Elite Weapon – Most of the time, you will be farming tons of experience from the Elite Dungeon. During Hot Time, which we recommend farming at least 1 hour per day, bonus experience is increased to 8x and item drop rate to 4x.
  2. Red Weapon – Red weapons are a good investment — they will be used in fighting Magical creatures. They are relevant in farming the Temporal Rift and Field/Elite Dungeon.
  3. Blue Weapon – PvP set with high base stats. A good option if you plan to just focus on building 1 set (for PvP and PvE).

  2. Trials of Experience
