NPC Red Crystal

The entrance to the Northern Turtle Lair is located at (X:693 Y:103) in Northern Turtle Tower, through a red crystal.

Unlike other lairs, this first crystal is the entrance to the lair itself, so the time will start counting down as soon as it's opened.

This lair also doesn't give any kind of prints.

In this lair, there are 5 different floors to climb. To advance to the next one, you need to kill the mini bosses in each one of them to progress to the next one.

  • Defeat all of the mini bosses on each floor to advance.

TipsEdit

  • Since everything is Water element, Earth countermeasures are very effective, such as Secrets of the Earth Spirit.
  • Poisons and fixed damage skills are highly recommended for the third floor if your raid party is not incredibly geared.
  • Although a tank is useful here for controlling the additions and mobs, a high level Hunter with AoEs, who can kite the mobs, is an adequate substitute. Having Goose Formation and casting Ditty helps with kiting.
  • Northern Turtle Legion Commander has high defense, but Purify from Doctor's Medical Treatment can remove its buff, making it considerably easier to kill. Use of Withered Earth and Dancer Debuffs is also recommended.
  • Northern Turtle has a large and powerful AoE that is signaled as a red circle. You only have a few seconds to run out of it, otherwise you might suffer instant death.
    • The first AoE takes out 95% of your full health, and subsequently scales by 10%
  • Tower-Patrolling Spirits are particularly fast attackers. Make sure they aren't on anyone squishy.
  • At final floor, when the Northern Turtle HP 10% remains. it will cast buff that reduce your Attack Speed, Movement speed and Magic Defense by 20% and stackable 5 times.
