Tips and Tricks

  • The Soldier Spiders in the first Area are considered bosses, so they will always drop a core when killed. This is a great place to gather Spider Webs for the Tailoring Expertise. Simply kill the first spiders, gather the Evil Cores and quit the battle. It is recommended to not wear any armor while doing this, as that just incurs repair fees and is not necessary.


  • As with all raids, there is only one path. The monsters and locations generated will be identical in each run.
  • There are three ore deposits in Area 2. One is located in the far right corner. Another is located in the far left corner. The last ore deposit is located alongside the left wall.
  • There is one Erg Pot in Area 1 on a ledge up high on the left side. The secondary weapon Spear can be used to break the Erg Pot.
  • There is one Erg Pot in Area 2 on a shelf in the corner to the right of the start. It is too high to hit with normal attacks or a blast attack like Evie's Fireball or Karok's Big Bang Attack, but can be broken with a well-aimed Spear.
