Overview

The Lunar Glade is a high level dungeon in which you can farm level 95 gear, farm molds for third cast Nirvana and R9 gear, and complete one of the level 100+ Bounty Hunter quests. It can be opened in three modes: Solo, Trophy, and Squad, each with varying degrees of difficulty.

Similar to Warsong, this dungeon is broken down into different areas based on the elements. Those valleys are:

Valley Element Boss Modes Accessible
Humorum Earth Genesiac Blink Solo, Squad
Imbrium Wood Mystical Jarax Solo, Squad
Smythii Metal Massaca Seben Solo, Squad
Nubium Fire Burning Soul Solo, Trophy Mode
Frigorus Water Buddha's Servant Solo, Trophy Mode
Cognitum Physical Hauntery Queen Solo, Squad
Insularum Physical Wang Tali & Wang Ehril Trophy Mode
Lunar Glade <none> Varies Squad

If at any time you leave the dungeon, you can get back to your squad by running thru the blue shimmering portal forward and to the right of where you first spawn in. This portal will always take you to the first valley that was opened. If your squad has moved on to a further valley, you'll need to run the length of the valley and retake the teleport quests from the NPCs.


Solo Mode

In Solo Mode, you are required to pay 1 Essence of Nature (comparable to Ultimate Subs) to open the dungeon. Once it is opened, you can choose which valley you start in. Which valley you choose as your first valley will determine which second and third valley you get.

In this mode, only the elemental Fragments and Crystals will drop. There is a slight chance that the elemental Essences can drop from the bosses, but the drop rate is so low that you shouldn't count on it.

Solo Mode Paths:

Quest Option/ 1st Valley Second Valley Third Valley
Smythii Humorum Cognitum
Humorum Nubium Cognitum
Nubium Imbrium Cognitum
Frigoris Smythii Cognitum


Trophy Mode

Lunar Glade: Trophy Mode differs slightly from other trophy modes in that different portions of the dungeon are scored independently. You receive both a score and a prize for each of the valleys.

Frigoris (Water)

Insularum (Physical)


Squad Mode

To open the instance in squad mode, you must pay a entrance fee of 3 million coin. There should be at least two characters in squad and in the instance.

Your squad's journey through to the Lunar Glade will take you through three valleys in total. The first valley will always be Humorum and the last will always be the Lunar Glade. The second valley and the chief inhabitant of the Lunar Glade are dependent upon your actions in Humorum.

Like open map mobs, the mobs in the valleys can have modifiers such as Sacrificial Assault, Increased Life, and Increased Defense. Additionally, mobs may spawn additional mobs once they have been aggroed. This new mob will be spawned on any party member within the range of the aggroed mob.

Each of the valleys has a kill count associated with it. If you do not kill 50%+1 of the mobs, the boss will stay in a frenzied state when you attempt to kill him. The quest is different for each valley and will auto complete once enough mobs have been killed.


Humorum (Earth)

Upon opening, the party will be teleported into Humorum Valley. The Mobs here immobilize but overall aren't hard to deal with. Follow the path around until you take a left turn into a room with pillars and an open area in the center. To either side is a path with 7 normal mobs and a tombstone that is immune to physical damage. Which tombstone(s) you kill determine which second valley and final boss you will unlock.

Tombstone 2nd Valley Final Boss 3rd Cast Molds
Left Imbrium Relic of Wind Chest, Wristguards
Right Smythii Drake Fling Leggings, Boots
Both Cognitum Primal Fear Helm, Cape, Belt

As soon as you kill one tombstone, the boss will spawn. If you want Cognitum valley and Primal Fear, make sure you kill both tombstones before you kill the boss. Once the boss is dead, the path is set and cannot be changed.



Genesiac Blink


This boss is a tower that spawns in the central area of the valley. As soon as he is aggroed, he spawns three adds. The adds cast an AOE earth resistance debuff which decreases that resistance by about 90%. They will use Earth attacks at range and both Earth and Physical attacks at melee.

There are two ways most squads deal with this boss: ranged or with a decoy.

The Ranged Approach The goal here is to kill the boss from far enough away that the adds won't aggro on you. The safe distance is 26-28 meters, depending on where you stand. Watch the adds circle the tower for a moment before you start so you can see their path. It's more of an ellipse than a circle, so some places are safer than others. Since the boss is a tower, he's stationary, so you won't have to worry about his melee attacks. He will, however, deal a ranged Earth damage attack on occasion as well as use the curse debuff.

The Decoy Approach In this method, a decoy is sent in first to take aggro of the adds and lure them away from the rest of the group. Remember that the debuff they cast is AOE and has a decent range, so remember to keep them a decent distance from the tower. Also, if you kill the adds, they will respawn at the boss. Once the adds are gone, the rest of the party is free to kill the tower without interference.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Heart of Genesiac Blink
  • Genesiac Blink's Skin



Vile: Genesiac Blink


After you kill Genesiac Blink, an Attendant NPC will appear from which the squad leader can summon a second version of the boss. There are no adds with this one, so he's a little easier in that regard, but he will use the curse debuff and an AOE purge. He also has an AOE attack that will interrupt channeling.

Drops:

  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)



Card Boss: Jaden Rutidon


After killing Genesiac Blink, follow the path around to the end of the valley. Where the two bridges meet, there will be a Summonbot for the card boss Jaden Rutidon.

The overgrown lizard will spawn in the water behind the bot. Every once in awhile he'll sleep a party member, but he goes down easily.

Drops:

  • Stamina Mats

Once you're done here, talk to the NPC on the island in the pool and be teleported into your next valley.


Imbrium (Wood)

The longest of the valleys, Imbrium is full of mobs that like to sleep and poison. Unless you're a die-hard, skip every mob you can. It's impossible to not make kill count for this valley unless you're a sin and stealth the whole thing.



Card Boss: Archelon


Kill the first four mobs and turn around to find the Summonbot for this boss. This turtle has a weak AOE attack but overall goes down without much fuss.

Drops:

  • Dexterity Mats



Mystical Jarax


Meet Peachblossom Ritualist's little sister. She'll poison and use an AOE seal, but the fight is fairly easy.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Gloom of Mystical Jarax
  • Mystical Jarax's Poison



Vile: Mystical Jarax


Slightly harder version.

Drops:

  • 3rd Cast Chest Mold or 3rd Cast Wrist Mold
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)


Smythii (Metal)

There are three mobs before the path splits off to traverse two bridges across the lake. Killing them spawns a Summonbot between the two bridges, who will spawn the Deep Strangler if you present the appropriate record to him.



Card Boss: Deep Strangler


This giant squid will use the armor and mind break debuffs which should be purified if your tank doesn't have the effective HP to soak up the extra damage.

Drops:

  • Spirit Mats



Massaca Seben


Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Massacaba Seben's Bone Shard
  • Tooth of Masseca Seben



Vile: Massaca Seben


Drops:

  • 3rd Cast Legging Mold or 3rd Cast Boot Mold
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)


Cognitum (Physical)

Perhaps the most commonly taken path, this is where the BH boss lives. Most of the mobs here are purely melee fighters, although the ones that look like Rankar (FB51) will attack you from range. Towards the end of the valley there is a path to either the left of the right. Either of these will lead you to the boss.



Hauntery Queen


This boss will use a random aggro Bleed, sometimes paired with an interrupt, as well as a random aggro Curse and normal attack. Overall it shouldn't be difficult.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Gem of Hauntery Queen



Vile: Hauntery Queen


The second version of this boss replaces his Bleed with an AOE Poison attack. Make sure to purify this off your HA party members quickly after the boss goes down because the stack can become lethal. He doesn't have any other special attacks, but he will cast Bramble on himself, so be sure to purge it or switch to ranged weapons if you can't stomach the reflected damage.

Drops:

  • 3rd Cast Helm Mold or 3rd Cast Cape Mold or 3rd Cast Belt Mold
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)


The Lunar Glade

The Lunar Glade is the last valley you will traverse when running in squad mode. You'll spawn in the middle of a circular path. You only need to follow one of the paths to reach the clearing where the boss awaits. The two paths are about equal, but depending on your kill speed and luck with mobs randomly spawning, you may have to run across to the other path and kill a couple of mobs.

Only one of the three bosses will have spawned, depending on your actions in Humorum valley. Vile bosses can only be spawned if you kill the normal version of that boss first.



Drake Fling


Drake Fling and his two clones await in the clearing where the two paths converge. The clones that are there when you start can either be killed before you start the boss, ignored by luring the boss away, or fought while fighting the boss (not recommended). At two points during the fight, Drake will summon an additional add.

If you ignored the first clones and lured the real boss away, they will not disappear upon his death and will need to be killed before you can interact with The Attendant NPC that will spawn under them.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Scale of Drake Fling
  • Horn of Drake Fling
  • Chromatic Tinder
  • Unknown Tinder



Vile: Drake Fling


Almost as soon as he is aggroed, the boss will use an AOE knock back attack that will deal physical damage as well as fling aggressors away from him. Occasionally, he'll use a random aggro melee attack, and hits moderately hard.

Drops:

  • Essence of Defense
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)



Relic of Wind


Relic of Wind will also be waiting where the two paths meet. Once aggroed, he will use a long lasting single target seal and a weaker aoe seal. He will also cast the Armor and Mind Break debuffs on the tank. As long as you can bypass or remove the seal, the fight shouldn't be difficult.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Shard of Relic of Wind
  • Crystal of Relic of Wind
  • Unknown Tider



Vile: Relic of Wind


Drops:

  • Essence of Defense
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)



Primal Fear


After clearing enough mobs, continue thru the clearing until you climb up on an island ring. Primal Fear awaits in the pool below. Every once in awhile, he will use an AOE purge. He can either be fought in the water, or from the rock to the right of him.

Drops:

  • Various Essences
  • Ring Fragment of Primal Fear
  • Essence of Primal Fear
  • Ancient Tinder



Vile: Primal Fear


The Attendant NPC spawns on the cliff overlooking the pool behind the party. The second version of the boss will use an AOE stun and an AOE fire DOT. While the ongoing fire damage isn't so bad that it has to be purified immediately, it will stack and can build up to a decently high damage tick.

Drops:

  • Essence of Defense
  • Basic Badge (Quest Reward)


Wygies

Each of the original six classes have a wygie associated with them. These NPCs will spawn after the boss of the valley is killed, and can be activated using an Invitation to Purgatory by the appropriate class, one time per run. These NPCs will not appear in single mode. All of the bosses summoned by these wygies are extraordinarily difficult and offer mold drops that can only be obtained from these bosses.

Class Valley Boss Special Drop
Archer Imbrium Knight of Terror Ancient Ring Mold
Barbarian Smythii Infernal Sonikbeast Ancient Helm Mold
Blademaster Humorum Herald of Agony Ancient Necklace Mold
Cleric Cognitum Bloodsurge Ultera Ancient Helm Mold
Venomancer Nubium Lunaweaver - Crimson and Darkness Ancient Ring Mold
