Monster Strike Collaboration Event
Get ready to increase your stats by collecting awesome rewards upon clearing the new Event Dungeon. Rewards such as Soul Stones and Event Cores increases your CP drastically!
Keep of Catastrophe Dungeon
Ranging from Easy to Hard Difficulties, monsters in this dungeon have a special attribute called “Monster Strike.”
Tip: Monsters in this dungeon are neither Magical or Elite type, so we recommend equipping the highest weapon and armor grade you have in your inventory. Use the “Strikeshot” consumable to receive a buff that gives 300% additional damage to Monster Strike-attribute monsters for 3 minutes. The buff time can be stacked when you consume multiple Strikeshots.
You can obtain Strikeshot when you defeat field bosses Acala and Queen Butterfly, which appear after extracting an Unnamed Herb in Field and Elite Dungeon. In addition, you can also obtain them from Keep of Catastrophe clear reward.
Part I: Rescuing the Silverlight Mercenaries
As you enter the Keep of Catastrophe, you will be given a mission to defeat the monsters that appear at the gate.
Tip: Activate the Strikeshot consumable at the start of battle. Lure the monsters into the magic circle that Theodore (NPC) installed. Take note that the magic circle will only be available for a certain duration, so go all out and kill the monsters immediately!
Part II: Fallen Angel of Rebellion – Lucifer
Lucifer is the Mini Boss in this Event Dungeon. She has 5 skills in her repertoire. You must familiarize yourself with her skill pattern to avoid getting in huge trouble.
Celestial Light: Lucifer will emit a powerful beam from her fingertip.
Tip: This skill takes the form of a straight fan shape attack. Stay close or at medium distance to easily avoid the coverage of her skill’s range. You will have enough time to evade the attack during the cast time.
Demonic Blasts: Psychokinetic beads will be scattered in all directions.
Tip: Move away from Lucifer while avoiding the beads. Find a blind spot where you can have the opportunity to hit via range attacks or cast spells.
Energy Circle: An Energy Circle will explode, dealing massive damage, upon reaching its maximum radius.
Tip: This skill covers all directions on a wide radius. Squishy classes are strongly advised to get out of the circle as soon as possible during the cast duration.
Barrier: Lucifer’s defensive skill. She casts a barrier called “Mantle of Light” that greatly reduces all the damage she receives from all types of attacks. The mantle will disappear after a number of hits.
Tip: Right after Lucifer casts the barrier, hold off all skills and hit her with normal attacks rapidly. The party should remove it as soon as possible; failing to remove the barrier will feed Lucifer with more attack power!
Summon Wraith: A complementary skill to Lucifer’s Barrier. Phantoms are summoned around her to protect her and interfere with your attacks.
Tip: Phantoms have low stats, therefore you can tank the incoming damage in order to focus on removing Lucifer’s Barrier. With high cleave damage, you can also hit the spirits simultaneously.
Part III: Middle of Keep
Midway through the Dungeon, go inside the entrance where you will face monsters in the vicinity. Dark areas will appear that cause you to receive massive damage.
Tip: Kill monsters outside the dark area. Keep in mind that the dark areas will expand as time passes, so your party should maintain a fast pace in killing monsters.
Part IV: (Final Boss) Savior of Cosmos – Miroku
Miroku is the Final Boss in this Event Dungeon. She utilizes terrifying attacks and has 5 skills in her deck. Miroku summons minions called Vajra that emit powerful beams, and later on collects the undestroyed Vajras to deal even more devastating power. Familiarizing yourself with her attack mechanics and knowing when to attack are keys to victory.
Wave of Enlightenment: Miroku sends out a powerful energy blast in one direction.
Tip: This attack is emitted 2 times in a straight fan-shape. Like Lucifer’s Celestial Light, stay close or at mid-range to avoid the coverage of her skill range.
Sphere of Ruin: Calls down bolts of lightning that destroy everything around her.
Tip: Random bolts are casted around the magic circle that are lethal when hit numerous times. Cast damage mitigation skills if you plan to tank the damage, else move away from the circle and attack from long range.
Summoning Vajra: Miroku summons Vajras to fight independently. They attack in a straight line, but can be destroyed by attacking them. After time passes, Miroku gathers the remaining Vajras to make herself even more powerful.
Tip: Attack from the sides and away from the beams to kill the Vajras. This will minimize the skill damage of Miroku depending on how many Vajras were destroyed.
Empowered Vajra: This skill covers Miroku with Vajras that she collected and attacks towards the front with a straight wide beam. Attack Range and Damage is decided depending on the number of collected Vajras.
Tip: Take note that killing the first phase of Vajra summons help you decrease the damage this skill produces. Consequently, you can instantly be killed if your team failed to kill the initial Vajra summons. There are also safe areas where you can move into, but keep close to Miroku for mobility.
Countdown to the END: When Miroku’s HP falls below 20%, a countdown of 10 seconds will start before it instantly kills all enemies within her vicinity. Inflicting a set amount of damage to Miroku as she counts down will prevent END from casting.
Tip: Always observe Miroku’s health bar. Save all of your party’s burst skills for when her HP is near 20% so that when she starts counting down, you will be able to kill her quickly, thus preventing death and achieving total victory.

UR crafting improvements
Before, in the previous UR crafting system, you needed to gather individual recipes for each type of equipment (Armor, Headgear, Boots, Gloves, Necklace, Rings, and Earrings).
To address the difficulty of collecting these recipes, the game has combined all of Grade UR Recipes, thus allowing the players to strengthen their equipment very quickly.
- All previous Grade UR Recipes that were kept inside the inventory are re-distributed into the character’s mailbox and converted into the new recipe types. Example:
- Blue Wolf Headgear Recipe -> Blue Wolf Armor Recipe
- Nassen Ring Recipe -> Nassen Accessory Recipe
