Quicksand Maze is a randomly-generated dungeon that was introduced in the Eclipse expansion. The lower level version of the dungeon is available to players that are level 50+ with a cultivation of Aware of Discord or higher. The dungeon is used for farming materials for low level gear (see forges to the left side of entrance) and recasting Morai gear. These types of gear usually offer a good amount of Slaying and Warding Level stats.

Overview[edit | edit source]

To enter the instance you talk to the Thunderdrum NPC at the entrance. Unlike the high level version of Quicksand Maze, this instance is free to enter as many times you want as long you meet the level and Cultivation requirements. You need minimum 2 people in the instance to start.

There are four different level ranges or modes, each giving different rewards:

  • Lv50-64
  • Lv65-79
  • Lv80-94
  • Lv95+

You need to be minimum level 50 to enter. The level range or mode of the instance is dependent on the squad leader's level, so if you have a squad of 3 with following levels; level 62, level 79 (squad leader), and level 105, then you will be in the mode for level Lv65-79.

Squad Structure[edit | edit source]

  • Tank: Unless you have a high level person in the squad, you might want to get a Barbarian, a good Blademaster or Seeker.
  • Magic Damage: Any class that are able to deal magic damage.
  • Physical Damage: Any class that are able to deal physical damage.
  • Healer: Cleric or Mystic is required unless you have a high level and well geared person in the squad.

Map[edit | edit source]

Navigation[edit | edit source]

First boss will be in room 7.The final boss will be in either room 11, 12, 13 (confirmation needed. You can view the map structure if you have a "Bloodglass Mirror" activated. You can take the quest for this at the entrance inside the dungeon. You will need a Bloodglass Shard which can be obtained at dead ends in Quicksand Maze (Level 100+) or be bought for 3 Lucky Coins at Assistant Wang Tsai in Archosaur.

Dead End[edit | edit source]

At each dead end, you will find an "Original Force Guardian" monster and killing it will drop an Original Force Key. You can use the key at the last boss.

Captain and Monsters[edit | edit source]

On the way to the bosses, you will encounter a lot of monsters. The majority of monsters are in groups and each group will have one captain, though sometimes two. Captains need to be your main focus. Each captain will have a different skill. Captain encounter is random.

Captain skills:

  • Pull: Pulls you in.
  • Knock back: Weirdly enough, he doesn't do anything.
  • Witchcraft: Turns you into a puffbird and deals damage.
  • Expel: Uses AOE purge. Cannot be stunned.
  • Spirit: Untargetable. Stun-able
  • Petrify: Various captains will have this skill. It means it is unable to be stunned. NSome captains cannot be stunned regardless of not having this skill.
  • Spell: Drains mana. Cannot be stunned.

Boss Fights[edit | edit source]

You will encounter a total of two bosses.

Manasprite

After killing each boss a Manasprite will spawn. This is the kill required for the quests. Make sure everybody is alive and nearby before you kill it.

Possibilities[edit | edit source]

First boss possibilities:

  • Trimotion Rakshasa
  • Elemental Offspring
  • Ashwing Liondrake
  • ... more(?)

Last boss possibilities:

  • Blinded Evilmaster
  • Naga Basara
  • Lord of the Labyrinth
  • Gemini Warfighter

Final boss - Using the key[edit | edit source]

At the final boss you are able to activate Magical Surge and Source of Force by using an Original Force Key. Each activation costs one key.

  • Magical Surge: Increases magic skill damage
  • Source of Force: Increases physical damage

Trimotion Rakshasa[edit | edit source]

Immune to physical, metal and earth damage.
Spawns 3 pools: green (wood), blue (water), and red (fire)
Ability: Buffing himself to be immune to wood, water, and/or fire

When the boss is buffing himself to be immune to for example water and fire, he can be damaged with wood. Players that do not deal wood damage must stay in the wood pool to gain a wood damage buff. Skills with another element (earth/metal/fire/water) won't work, it has to be physical attacks (if you are for example a Wizard, you have to auto attack the boss)

In the same way, when he is immune to fire and wood, he must be damaged with water. Players that do not deal water damage must stay in the water pool to gain a water damage buff. Skills with another element won't work here either.

Elemental Offspring[edit | edit source]

Ability: AOE purges and becomes immune.

There will be red and blue pillars. The boss starts out with needing 3 blue pillars alive (kill the red ones till 3 blue spawns) otherwise he will be immune. After a while, he will go back to being immune and needs 3 red pillars alive.
Blue pillars are immune to magical damage, and red pillars are immune to physical damage.

If you have trouble switching between the pillars, get either 3 red or 3 blue pillars, then avoid killing the pillars (do not use AOE attacks) and just wait out his immunity.
