Level 8 Unrestricted Exploration Test : Greenscape

Quest name : Patrol : Greenscape Probe
Kill Rockbear, Time Limit : 15mins
Unlike other mmorpgs the 1st boss actually hit pretty hard right from the start. If your dodging/blocking skills are mediocre, i suggest partying with a range character or use gunslash(if you have one, range-mode) to slowly poke RockBear to death.

Grind Greenscape probe till level 10.

You will be unlocking the next area Amduskia/The Cauldron

To Collect 3 Caterdran crystals.


Take Afin’s Client Order that requires only him and you in the quest “Carthago Hunt” and a rank S.

Level 12

If you have been doing Client Orders from your respective class npcs, the Client Orders of killing 20 mobs with a certain weapon will be available.

Now you can go ahead and fight Caterdran.

Tips :
Aim the Tail, once the crystal is broken, it will expose it weak spot which is also the tail.

The boss can be poisoned so if you happen to have a Poison I on any of your weapon, use it. It will make your life a whole lot easier.

Level 13

Grind Caterdran till you finish the Weapon Palette Client Order.
Do Side NPCs Client Orders.

Level 14

The Tail can be broken to allow free damage on it.
Breakable parts are : The head horn, the back horn and the tail.

Destroy the tentacle-like stuff faster than it can respawn them to make it expose it’s red belly.
Keep jumping away to avoid it’s sucking technique else you will be in a world of pain xD.

Level 20!!! (from now on, i would just put level 20 + as most of you would grind on a certain mpa before unlocking the rest of the quests)

Do “White Summit Survey” & “White Summit Expedition”

Both are fairly easy to do, fire forces/wizards will have the best time here.

Level 20 +

“De Marmoth Eradication”

De Marmoth:
Weak to fire, can be burned.
The horns beside it’s face can be broken which will expose it weak points.

You have now unlocked “Unrestricted Exploration Test : White Summit” from Cofy.

The head/mane can be broken to expose a weak point.

Great now you have unlocked Underworks!!!

Level 20+

“UnderWorks Automata” & Distress Signal”

UnderWorks Automata is fairly easy, just kill till you gain the required amount of points.

Distress Signal, at the end it’s protect the lagomites, Protect and not blow them up!
(i swear the amount of people that screwed my MPA by blowing up the lagomite because they joined the map via a friend or team member is countless.)

Level 20 +

“Giant Transforming Automata”

Transmizer :
Weak to lighting.
No breakable parts.
The Blue glowing Bulb is it’s only weak spot and it only shows it after slamming the ground in it’s normal/melee mode.
