Information
Level Range: 100/140/160+
Party Requisites: 1+ Player
Quest Prerequisites: None
Duration: 60/75/90 Minutes
Cooldown: 23 Hours

Overview

The biggest instance to date, it features three difficulty modes which cover the whole level 100~175 range. This flexible instance has something for everybody.
Each difficulty adds one additional boss fight and new equipment, while boosting the overall drop rates.
The cooldowns are exclusive to each difficulty so you can run all three modes every day.
Unlocking a higher difficulty, requires you to fully complete the previous, and to have the appropriate Base Level, which would be 100 for Easy Mode, 140 for Normal Mode and 160 for
Hard Mode. It is possible to finish the Easy Mode without dealing with the final boss, which allows you to complete the main quest and receive EXP, but won't count toward completion.

Upon completing the Easy Mode once, you will receive the caption Necklace of the Priestess (once per account), which can be given powerful enchants, going up to 3 stages.
Besides the normal drops, there's also a shop managed by Shohreh which sells a wide array of articles, from equipment to consumables and Mercenary Scrolls. This shop
uses instance's own currency, caption Dream Debris, and completing higher difficulty modes, unlocks additional articles.

The difficulty mode is managed by the party's leader, and cannot be modified once set, while the instance is active. Party members are able to change their own difficulty mode before going inside, which is done with the aid of High Priestess Niren. All the modes are managed through a single script so it might appear complex on paper, but the switching is pretty straightforward.

You will be met with quite a lot of lore on your way through the instance, with additional bits coming from higher difficulties. Once you have completed a difficuilty, you will be able to skip the dialogues and scripted events that it features. Meaning that completing Easy Mode will allow you to skip the parts exclusive to it, in both Normal and Hard Modes.

This instance is also the first one to feature the custom Instance Reentry System.


Background and Lore

As you stride through the ancient city of Rachel, your attention is caught by High Priestess Niren, standing near a strange portal and surrounded by servants.
She's seeking the aid of foreign adventurers who aren't involved in any way with the local political and religious dramas, and Midgardians fit the bill!

The Pope of Arunafeltz is stuck in a catatonic state, spending most of the day asleep, and daydreaming when awake, barely responding to the world around. Niren suspects that
something from her dreams is keeping the girl trapped, she conjured a portal which allows one to enter that dreamworld as a participant, and needs your help with the exploration.
You're asked, and threatened to keep the whole matter under secret, and it is in your best interests to do so, as the Cult does not mess around with their threats.

If you agree, you will be able to witness and influence events which affect the existence of the Arunafeltz Republic at a whole, to learn about its dark past, the tragic story of The Pope,
her twin brother and the role of the Ice Salamander Ktullanux. Some light will be shed on he nature of the Cult of Freyja and its upper echelon of Freyja's servants.

Completing each difficulty, reveals more of the complex net of stories cast upon the republic, although that only leaves even more loose ends.
You're promised riches and potent magical equipment for your aid and discretion, and that you will obtain, although the greatest reward is preventing the Arunafeltz Republic
from plunging into chaos, at least for some time, as the future is uncertain and the machinations of the Cult may have gotten out of hand a long time ago...


Tips

Most of the run consists of you meeting large packs of guards and fanatics, with some undead dogs. All the encounters have a fixed location, with three non-scripted ambushes inside of the city.
Proper positioning and use of the Pope's mercenary abilities, can make the fights considerably easier.
Temple Guards are sturdy defenders of Freyja's sacred places, employing abilities one would expect from Crusaders, but also those of Rogues, due to their nomadic heritage.
Fanatics are crazed melee fighters who may perform suicidal attacks in higher difficulties, while Zealots are competent spellcasters and healers.
Tracking Undogs are undead servants risen by a joke of Freyja's perhaps. They're quick, agile, deadly yet fragile, and may come back to unlife once destroyed.
It may be a bad idea to tackle the whole group at once in higher difficulties, as they're much sturdier and support each other. Separate them first!

Freyja's Bishop is a miniboss that you will have to defeat multiple times through the run.
These old servants of the Goddess are versatile, defensive fighters and spellcasters, employing a wide array of priestly abilities.
Make sure to move them out of the special Sanctuary effect, and to avoid the special Magnus Exorcismus which will damage you regardless of your element.
In higher difficulties, the bishop has considerable healing abilities which require steady damage output from your part if you wish to progress.

Boss fights feature a wide array of unique abilities, mechanics and AI behaviors.
The traditional tank and spank tactics will not work, and gone are powerhouse abilities such as Earthquake, Hell's Judgement, constant Dispel and Speed Up/Power Up.
Reacting to the various mechanics and moving when required is required, bruteforcing will not work well in this instance. This also implies that small groups are favored over alt trains.
Managing many buffslaves will be exceedingly hard with the fight's mechanics and mobility requirements. Bring a tight-knit and prepared group of wary players instead.
The tank won't be taking brutal damage, but still requires proper support and healing. Alternative tanks are preferred, such as mobile or FLEE based ones.

Loomin

This grieving brother appears to be slow and aloof, but has a wide array of tricks under his sleeve, both of his own creation and also those taught by Ktullanux.
It is recommended to have a tank with moderate mobility which can avoid attacks and pick up the child up quickly.
Movement and repositioning are the keys during this battle. While most of the attacks aren't particularly deadly, failure to react and deal with Frozen Hearts could easily result in a wipe.
Focusing on spellcasting with a few minor physical attacks, Loomin is sturdy and has the tendency to move around with Back Sliding, which is chained into a painful Soul Strike.
He will also chase players with Body Relocation and the consequent Moon Slasher.
Loomin doesn't enjoy getting touched by those he considers unclean, so he will often remove grounds effects under himself with Ganbantein, followed by Pneuma.
His normal attack abilities include a wide array of Water, Neutral and Ghost property physical and magical abilities, Those may target random players, the tank, or both.
Watch out for his special attacks, such as Flash Attack or Wide Frost Diver.
The tank will be getting some of his SP burned at intervals, through Mental Breaker.
In higher difficulties, he may silence the group or put them to slumber with Wide Silence and Wide Sleep.
The tank may be disabled with Ice Blast, which inflicts guaranteed, short duration Crystallization.

Higher difficulties add more abilities to the repertoire, and as usual, the lower the HP, the more abilities are unlocked.
Some key cases are signaled by a flavor text and a cast time you can react to, those are underlined below.

Loomin's Special Abilities
Ability Flavor Text Description
Gravitation Field A waste of breath the years behind, In balance with this life, this death! Prioritizes a random player who isn't the tank.
This special version of the High Wizard's ability
deals 10% of Max HP as damage every 0.5s,
so try to move out as fast as possible.
Loomin is able to move and act while the field remains.
Akaitsuki There's no recovery from a stolen dream... Only the tank may be targeted.
Just like the normal ability, it reverses the healing
taken, turning it into damage instead.
Lasts for 10s.
Divine Shield Stop sullying me with your venom!!! Places a shield with a value equal to 10% of Max HP
which absorbs all types of damage and lasts for 1m.
Summon Frozen Heart Has your heart been pierced, frozen and shattered? Prioritizes a random player who isn't the tank.
Summons one Frozen Heart, which is a
stationary monster under Plant protocol.
It will quickly attack nearby players while
also casting Frost Nova and Cold Bolt.
Once spawned, a timer will appear on top
of this monster, and if it isn't destroyed before
the timer runs out, the Frozen Heart will self destruct,
using Ice Explosion, which deals very high physical,
Water property damage in a 19x19 cell area and inflicting
unavoidable Crystallization plus Bleeding statuses.
Gravity Crash (Normal Mode+) Suffer the weight of the world just as I have! Screen wide spell which deals miscellaneous damage based
on a percentage of Max HP and the currently carried weight.
Also forces the targets to sit down and roots them for 10s,
with the root's effect blocking the use of movement skills.
Sitting down manually before this ability hits, will halve its
damage and prevent the forceful sit down plus root effects.
Dispel (Hard Mode) You don't deserve those boons... Targets a random player who isn't the tank,
and if there are no other players
around, this ability isn't used.
Internal Collapse (Hard Mode) On the left palm is my dwindled hope, the envoy of your unmaking. One random player who isn't the current tank is prioritized, becoming a living bomb.
The effect is signaled by a ticking sound, an expanding circle,
and a timer over the target's head.
Once 5s have passed, the target will explode, taking 90% of own
Max HP as miscellaneous damage, and inflicting half
of that to all allies in a 17x17 cell area around,
knocking them back 5 cells.
Target Change (Hard Mode) /dum emotion Loomin will simply ignore players under the
Steel Body status, picking a new target instead!

Reflection of Ktullanux

Unlike other incarnations of the legendary Ice Salamander, in this dreamworld, he focuses on brutal physical attacks and treacherous spellcasting of Nifelheim instead of raw Water magic.
Not as tricky as Loomin, the Ice Salamander prefers to inflict devastating direct damage with a combination of Water and Neutral property physical attacks, as well as Ice Breath and Splash Attack.
While deadly, his HIT rate is fairly low, and thus having a FLEE focused tank may help avoid a large portion of damage entirely, while beefy tanks could be taking too much damage to keep up.
The tank will be sometimes getting hit by Shatter Barrier, which removes defensive boons and inflicts miscellaneous damage based on a percentage of Max HP multiplied by the number of boons removed.
Pile Bunker is used constantly if the tank is under the effect of Steel Body.
The Ice Salamander will empower himself with Weapon Quicken and Auto Guard fairly often, so having somebody to remove those buffs will make the fight considerably easier.
Not to say that he forgot the use of Water magic, Jack Frost, Frost Nova and random targeted Lightning Spear of Ice are used from time to time, although his MATK value isn't high.
Debuffing consists of Wide Freeze, Wide Bleeding and random targeted Water Escape Technique.
Ice Blast is used from time to time once the beast's HP hits a low level.

Higher difficulties add more abilities to the repertoire, and as usual, the lower the HP, the more abilities are unlocked.
Some key cases are signaled by a flavor text and a cast time you can react to, those are underlined below.

Reflection's of Ktullanux Special Abilities
Ability Flavor Text Description
Power Up Perhaps I must sharpen my fangs. Just the normal ability we all know, the important factor is that
Shatter Barrier is no longer used while this buff is active.
Snowflake Barrage May your shattered bones bite the permafrost beneath! Casts 12 instances of Falling Ice Pillar in 2.4s,
dealing 250% of MATK per hit while voiding the
chance to Freeze this ability normally has.
Status Down Giving more than you can take, little are minds of men. Prioritizes a random player who isn't the tank.
Decreases All Stats by 30% for 30s.
Wide Crystallization On the seventh day, a blizzard came... Coming right after a full screen Ganbantein, this ability
inflicts Crystallization status to everyone on sight.
Maximized Pain A fellur austan um eitrdala soxum ok sverdum, Slidr heitir su. Turns invulnerable for 10s while reflecting a percentage
of the damage that would be received onto all enemies
in view range, changing own color for the duration.
The end of this status is notified through red text.
Summon Ice Colossus You too must taste my unbridled wrath. Summons one Ice Colossus in an area around self.
This walking glacier is very slow, but also exceedingly powerful.
Upon spawn, it will pick a random target, homing onto it
for 1m, and picking a new one after that time is over.
Dealing extremely high physical damage of Water
and Neutral properties, and using some Water spells,
the Colossus will chase its current target until death.
Shatter Barrier will be used frequently, and being hit
by a physical attack will activate Stone Skin while
being hit by a magical, will replace it with Anti Magic.
Getting trapped, will cause the Colossus to cast
Wide Frost Diver followed by Percentual Heal (10%).
There is also a timer, which will appear on top of the monster upon
its spawn, and once it runs out, the Colossus will become enraged,
gaining Power Up and using physical attacks on chase.
Ice Explosion (Hard Mode) I AM THE NIFLHEIM!!! Deals massive physical, Water property damage in
a 19x19 cell area around and inflicts unavoidable
Crystallization plus Bleeding statuses.
Ice Tomb (Hard Mode) The frozen waters of Fimbulthul wish to skewer your flesh. Prioritizes a random player who isn't the tank.
Traps the target in a cage of Ice Walls for 10s and sets
up an Ice Mine inside, which goes off after a second,
dealing 50% of Max HP as miscellaneous, Water
property damage and inflicting Chill status.
Note that multiple players may be trapped if they're too close.

The Pope

This optional fight, is divided into two different stages, with fairly different combat dynamics and mechanics.

The Pope will begin in her casual outfit (Waning Moon), going onto brutal offensive, employing assassination techniques and tricks
of stealth that she's been taught by a nameless killer who attempted against her life, but was caught and disarmed by the girl.
Taking a liking to the girl, and being indebted to her kindness, he taught her all the secrets of the trade, which she infused with her own holy spells.
This is a hectic phase, with The Pope moving around all the time, changing targets and attempting to quickly eliminate them.
Quick use of defensive abilities is required, paying attention to the targeted players.

Her normal set of attacks includes two combos, high level Holy Cross plus Triple Attack, and Cross Impact plus Critical Slash.
Attempting to kite her, will be met with Charge Attack and Windmill.
Random targets might get hit by Cross Ripper Slasher, and also those she's chasing.
The tank will be constantly getting punished by Pressure and Holy Punishment, which is a Neutral property spell that causes forced Silence and splashes around.
Random targets may get hit by Confessio, which casts a flurry of 9 low level Holy Punishments. Move away from the targeted player!
As her HP dwindles, the party will get debuffed by Wide Decrease Agility, and those close to her, by Wide Lex Aeterna.

The traditional idea of tanking does not work during this fight. Anyone may be targeted, and The Pope doesn't change her aggro in any normal way.
The targeted player must be protected and kept alive, until a new victim is chosen.

Some key abilities are signaled by a flavor text and a cast time you can react to, those are underlined below.

The Pope's (Waning Moon) Special Abilities
Ability Flavor Text Description
Metamorphosis Uhm... I will don my trappings now. Upon reaching 50% of Max HP, The Pope will turn invulnerable
and spend 6s changing clothes, entering the second phase
of the fight and banishing all active Merkabahs.
Buff Round I forgot to buff myself at the start... The Pope buffs herself with Lv.100 Blessing,
Lv.48 Increase Agility and Adjustment.
Target Change I hope your friends aren't as dull. Coming right after Lv.1 Speed Up (NPC_AGIUP),
The Pope drops her current target and picks a new one.
Sanctuary Please stop, you're getting my new clothes dirty! Drops a special version of Sanctuary on self,
which recovers massive amounts of HP
yet doesn't affect enemies.
Call Merkabah I knocked and knocked, yet the secrets are kept locked. Invokes one Merkabah, which is a stationary slave,
but if The Pope is dragged too far away,
she will recall it back next to her.
This servant will cast Renovatio on self upon spawn,
beginning to support The Pope with abilities such as
Divine Shield, Assumptio, Expiatio and Heal,
becoming more supportive as her HP depletes.
Lv.3 Wide Stun will be cast when Merkabah's own HP depletes.
Perfect Invisibility The Moon is waning, and so your story is coming to its end. Becomes completely invisible for 15s, this effect cannot
be canceled by damage or any revealing abilities.
Right after, she picks a new target and brands it with Stigmandum,
which is a more powerful, single-target version of Oratio that also
reduces FLEE and increases the chance to get Critically hit.
The marked target will be hit by Lv.10 Joint Beat
and Lv.20 Bash combo every second.
Holy Stampede Will your remains burst into bright fragments of eternity if I do this? Prioritizes a random player who isn't the tank.
Once the cast time finishes, The Pope will charge
the targeted player, dealing very high, Neutral
property physical damage and Stunning for 5s.
This is followed by a second hit, which causes moderate
Holy property physical damage in a 9x9 cell area around
the target, inflicting Blind and Decrease Agility.
The initial portion can be blocked by Pneuma,
and the splashed damage, by Safety Wall.
It is also possible to stop the cast by breaking line of sight.

During the second stage of the fight (Waxing Moon), The Pope takes a more orthodox approach, becoming more defensive and supportive while focusing on spellcasting.
She is considerably slower and not as hyper-active, but still packs quite a punch, and her defenses have been raised.
You will be dealing with higher area damage, and improper management of her slaves can easily turn the fight very chaotic.
Mobility requirements are lower, although the tank must avoid Castigatio, as it can't be soaked through Devotion.

Her normal sets of attacks includes high level Holy Light, Stun Attack plus Dark Cross, and Energy Drain plus Varetyr Spear combos.
Defensive effects aren't many, but they're effective. Assumptio coupled with Archangelus allow her to shrug a lot of damage off.
Area attacks include high level Wide Pressure and Wide Judex.
The main debuff to watch out for is Oratio.

The special abilities are underlined below.

The Pope's (Waxing Moon) Special Abilities
Ability Flavor Text Description
Sanctuary I'm getting a little dizzy... Drops a special version of Sanctuary on self,
which recovers massive amounts of HP
yet doesn't affect enemies.
Magnus Exorcismus Strange paths to walk upon emerge under our feet. This special version of the Priest's skill, inflicts damage
regardless of the target's race or element.
Archangelus You're forcing me to lay the probabilities low. After increasing own Soft DEF and MDEF by 50000%, The Pope
buffs herself with Lv.10 Expiatio and picks a new target.
Call Agshekelot This one was blessed as Love but never truly understood, for it devours all in dismay. Invokes one Agshekelot, which is an aggressive
slave that inflicts manageable but quick damage,
debuffs with Deadly Poison and Bleeding,
and also burns SP through Mental Breaker.
Every 3s, it will inflict 10% of Max HP damage upon itself,
and if it dies through this effect or normal damage,
then one Golachab will spawn in its place.
When that happens, another Agshekelot will be called.
Golachab is a beefy spellcaster that uses a wide array
of Fire property spells such as Fire Wave, Fire Ball,
Dragon Fire Formation, Crimson Fire Formation
and debuffs with Wide Burning and Wide Silence.
Golachab will change its target every 30s.
Wide Confessio Hell throbs from your lips, your gaze hovers with ignorance! This ability is cast right after a full-screen Wide Dispel.
Targeting everybody on screen, The Pope uses Confessio,
which casts a flurry of 9 low level Holy Punishments,
dealing Neutral property magical damage that
splashes around and inflicts forced Silence.
Spreading around is imperative to avoid stacked splashed damage.
Sacred Song Spacious was my puzzled mind, lost in the endless maze of creation... Coming right after Divine Shield, this skill will
restore 10% of Pope's Max HP whle reducing
All Stats of enemies on sight by 30% for 30s.
It is possible to interrupt this skill with Spell Breaker or by
tearing down the Divine Shield before cast goes off.
Castigatio Dear madness, please don't let go of my hand... For 10s, The Pope's next melee swing will inflict
20000% of ATK in damage while ignoring FLEE,
Perfect Dodge and all defensive effects.
During this effect, The Pope won't use any skills
so the current target must run away or die!

Dream Debris

Contained inside of caption Frozen Dream, caption Dream Debris is the currency used to purchase goods from Shohreh, and to enchant the caption Necklace of the Priestess.
Niren needs those strange dreamworld fragments to operate the Dream Rift and offers useful goods in exchange.
caption Frozen Dream is obtained from the Oneiric Gatherings and by helping Medgga.
If you manage to recover and return the caption Old Doll to The Pope just before finishing the instance, you will be awarded with a certain amount as well.

caption

Oneiric Gathering

These strange clusters are formed upon defeating a Freyja's Bishop, or any of the MVPs inside the instance.
Upon clicking one, they burst into many caption Frozen Dreams. The amount is based on the enemy defeated, and the current Difficulty Mode.



caption

Medgga

This furry traveler from a far away land, will ask you for two caption Pope Cookies, one for herself, and another for her husband.
She will toss a pile a of caption Frozen Dreams at you for the help.


Old Doll

This is the lost doll Tilby that The Pope tells you about at the beginning. By recovering it, you can obtain additional rewards upon finishing the instance.
Additionally, this item is required to initiate the optional fight with The Pope in the Hard Mode of this instance.
Upon defeating either of the three first Freyja's Bishops, they will drop something shiny, in a Glowing Spot.

caption

Glowing Spot

Approach and inspect it, you might discover the caption Old Doll, or nothing at all.
There is 25% chance to find the doll, and if you inspected the first two but found none, the third is guaranteed to contain the doll.
However, if you forgot to check a spot, you may miss the doll!


Mercenary

The Pope will aid you in combat during most of the fights, joining you as a Mercenary.
Once you're ready to leave the temple, you will be able to choose her outfit, altering the stats and skills.
Papal Attire provides higher DEF, MATK and INT, while ASPD and MSPD are lowered. The skill set is oriented towards tanking and support.
Casual Attire results in higher MDEF, ATK and DEX, while increasing ASPD and MSPD. The skill set focuses on offense with moderate support.

The Mercenary Scrolls sold by Shohreh allow you summon this little helper for 30 minutes.
