Meirin asked, “But what are we going to do, Toma? We don't know much about the Fortress, except that this place is crawling with monsters. We will ask warriors for help, but will our volunteers survive there? Though Meirin is adventurous, beasts, which she saw out of the corner of her eye, have been more real and dangerous than she read about in books. “What do you suggest? To forget that we stand on the threshold of great new discoveries?” the serious and experienced explorer Dwarf answered. “These fighters are stronger than they seem. By the way, did you prepare bracelets you were talking about for them? “Of course, I did! Also, the bracelets can be enchanted. I will show the warriors what to do, if you can entrust me with it, Toma. “Well, get on it. Don't forget about dinner! I'm always especially hungry before the start of a dangerous adventure.” Right after the maintenance near the Warehouse Keeper in Town of Rune the Golden Compass Explorers shall appear – Toma and Meirin. Ask Toma to teleport to the Lurin's Fortress dungeon. Lurin's Fortress is a solo-type instanced dungeon. You can enter it once a day. Lurin's Fortress will be available for 6 weeks, after which the explorers will leave Elmoraden till next time. Lurin's Fortress is available twice a day: first time - a common entrance, second time - after using the special ticket that can be purchased in our L2Store for Adena. The ticket can be bought once a day per account. Purchase reset time is 12 a.m. daily. As soon as the character enters the Lurin's Fortress, the battle begins. The battle represents itself a coherent defeat of monsters and bosses that attack in waves. Zone is considered to be completed when the final boss Lurin is defeated. However, Lucien's Marks can be obtained from both bosses. Sequence of Monsters Spawning First half lasts about 5 minutes – 15 rounds; second half lasts about 10 min — 20 rounds. There are 6 types of monsters which are divided into 3 grades. Low-grade monsters of two types appear constantly and their number increases over the rounds. First half: 3 more types of mid-grade monsters spawn. Second half: more mid/high-grade monsters spawn. Depending on the sequence of rounds, the maximum number of normal/high-grade monsters spawn in random spots. High-grade monsters have the ability to appear on different spots – separately from normal monsters. With each round even more monsters spawn. If the dungeon is cleared up to the maximum round of the first/second half, the current round is repeated. After killing all the monsters of the round, the next round begins. Sequence of Bosses Spawning(Both Mid & Final Bosses) Depending on the number of monster waves cleared, there is a division into 5 stages, and in each stage a different grade boss spawns. Mid-grade boss: Battle Demolisher Final boss: Lurin Stage 1: monsters of 1~2 rounds cleared, the lowest grade boss spawns. Stage 2: monsters of 3~5 rounds cleared, the low or the lowest grade spawns. Stage 3: monsters of 6~9 rounds cleared, the low or mid grade boss spawns. Stage 4: monsters of 10~14 rounds cleared, the mid or high grade boss spawns. Stage 5: monsters of 15 rounds cleared, the high or top grade boss spawns. Additional Information The current wave is displayed with the on-screen message: Battle Demolisher & Lurin appear under the Earth Barrier effect that can be taken down just after making a certain number of hits: 100 hits on Battle Demolisher and 150 on Lurin (damage doesn’t matter). Normal monsters appearing in waves do not drop any items, XP and SP also can’t be gained. Small amount of Adena, certain amount of XP/SP and Lucien's Marks can be gained from the dungeon bosses. Lucien's Marks are added directly to character inventory. The loot value depends on the grade (stage) of the defeated boss: While progressing through the dungeon, you can obtain a special herb after defeating normal monsters at a certain rate that will help you in the zone. The herb gives a random of three effects after picking up: If a Sigel Knight or Aeore Healer enters the Lurin's Fortress, a helpful assistant NPC — Golden Compass Explorer Evelyn spawns. It appears at a very early stage. Evelyn is a magician and actively uses attacking magic spells of the fire element. When she is surrounded by many enemies, she sometimes uses a massive knockdown skill. You cannot apply buffs on Evelyn, but you can help her with healing in case you have some healing skills. Some Evelyn's skills significantly reduce enemies' HP, especially it will be useful in the battle with the boss. Evelyn is quite skilled fighter, but still she can die. Try not to let that happen! Reward for defeating the final boss in the Lurin's Fortress will be a special item – Lucien's Mark: Mark can be exchanged through Meirin NPC for a special item – Lucien's Bracelet. Additionally Adena will be required. In the Meirin’s store you can also purchase enchant scroll exclusively for the Lucien's Bracelet. In addition to the special items Meirin can offer several consumables and a Golden Compass Explorers' exclusive items such as Toma's Divine Potection. This item can be also purchased in L2 Store for free (1 per day per account). Purchase reset time is 12 a.m. daily. Toma's Divine Protection can be also purchased for 1 Billion Adena from Meirin. Lucien's Marks can be exchanged until the end of the event – September 18. Lucien's Marks can be also spent for buying special event items for the Mammon’s ancient treasure. Lucien's Bracelet can be enchanted up to +10. Success rate is 100%. Depending on the enchant level different types of bracelets apply the effect to a character: Lucien's Bracelet - Attack Lucien's Bracelet - Magic Lucien's Bracelet - Defense Event items have a number of restrictions: Maphr's Rune doesn’t affect the amount of dropped Adena and item drop rate in Lurin's Fortress. Toma's Divine Protection is a 24-hour item, the item timer starts ticking right after purchase. It disappears from the character's inventory after Lurin boss is defeated. All buffs remain while entering Lurin's Fortress. Known Issues: The in-game description of the Entrance Pass - Lurin's Fortress says about 'Nightmare Kamaloka' and Captain Kurtiz. Please ignore this, it shall be fixed with the client update during the next scheduled maintenance.
