Run along. There's nothing to see here.   ♥    

This mission was revised in v23.13.92. For an earlier version of this raid mission, see Knight of Chaos (v22.43.79) instead. Unlike the previous version, there is no easy mode. The featured loot of this mission are Red Armonium Ore, Abyss Pieces, and Recipe - Armonia Gloves. In v23.63.43, Page - Placidez was added to the roulette.

This guide is based on American game client (v23.41.50), then updated in v23.63.43.


Mission Information
Location: Armonia Apostadero (E4/E5)
Frequency: 1/day
Participants: 3-12
Duration: 30 minutes
Entry Cost: None
Requirement: None

Raid Preparation
A tank (e.g. Sirius) is required for this mission. The tank should also bring Veronif, Elisa, or Valeria to deal with Shock status.

A dedicated dispel team is recommended to prevent the boss from using area attacks. Optionally, any attack team with Emilia can use Whole Cancellation skill on him as and when available, or simply use Refresh Mind skill on the dispelling character.

The boss has high DEF Rating, so debuffers are recommended to shave it off, especially Lisa with Lv.12 Grinding rings and trigger-enchanted daggers, Leonele with Lv.11-12 Mark, Battle Smith Idge, etc. The mobs can hit quite hard, so attackers may want to use Emilia for Protection Field skill when necessary.


1. Destroy Dimension Gates
At the start, a zone notice will say: Destroy the Dimension Gates of Abyss located on both sides in 5 minutes. There will be some corrupted monsters protecting each gate, located at E3 and H3. Let the tank draw their aggression, while the attackers destroy the gates before the gauge bars are empty. The monsters will vanish after the gate is destroyed.


Gate • Lv.131 Object • Soft Armor • None • Medium
HP 15,589,053 • ATK Rating 67 • ATK • DEF Rating 64 • DEF 271
Penetration 0 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 90, Ice 90, Lightning 90, Mental 90

Corrupted Dullahan Lancer 1 • Lv.145 Demon • Heavy Armor • None • Medium
HP 10,253,250 • ATK Rating 74 • ATK 178,200 • DEF Rating 74 • DEF 247
Penetration 50 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 50, Ice 50, Lightning 50, Mental 50

Corrupted Dullahan Guardian 2 • Lv.145 Demon • Heavy Armor • None • Medium
HP 10,253,250 • ATK Rating 74 • ATK 178,200 • DEF Rating 74 • DEF 247
Penetration 50 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 80, Ice 80, Lightning 80, Mental 80

If both gates are destroyed within 5 minutes, a zone notice will say: Chaotic Knight, Dullahan has been summoned.

Otherwise, you will not be able to attack the gates and a zone notice will say: The Dimension Gates will open in 2 minutes. The notice will announce again in 1 minute, and again 30 seconds. Thereafter, you will have to repeat until both gates are destroyed within 5 minutes after opening.


2. Kill Dullahan Knight
Dullahan boss deals melee damage with its normal attacks. It has 2 circular area attack skills. Shelak Craft skill deals melee damage and inflicts Mortal Wound status. Blitz Corp skill deals lightning damage and inflicts Shock status. Use Whole Cancellation skill on him to prevent him from using those skills.

The boss may change his target at times, so it is important for the tank to keep provoking him. At the start, use Viki's Tenderaiser to inflict Burn status as soon as possible to reduce him to 75% HP. He can also periodically remove any summoned monster near him.

Dullahan Knight • Lv.150 Undead • Heavy Armor • None • Large
HP 114,240,000 • ATK Rating 81 • ATK 91,800 • DEF Rating 81 • DEF 229
Penetration 140 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 80 • RES - Fire 80, Ice 80, Lightning 80, Mental 80

Eventually, some Corrupted Dullahan Guardians may come towards the boss from the lower end of the map. Just kill them when they appear.

Corrupted Dullahan Guardian 1 • Lv.140 Demon • Heavy Armor • None • Medium
HP 6,048,000 • ATK Rating 72 • ATK 57,600 • DEF Rating 71 • DEF 205
Penetration 50 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 70, Ice 70, Lightning 70, Mental 70

There are 4 other things to note when dealing with this boss.

(a) HP Absorption
The boss can absorb certain types of damage as HP. It will say in white (public) chat window: Absorbs melee (or shooting, or magical) attack as HP. When this happens, the related characters should not attack him until his gauge bar becomes empty.

Affected characters should instead focus on mobs and the gates. For example, if he is absorbing magic attack, then all magic-based characters should stop hitting the boss and attack the gates and mobs instead. The boss may change the damage absorption later, so pay attention to what it says.




(b) Shock Fields
Periodically, shock fields will appear near the boss' target (usually the tank). The fields can inflict Shock status, which can make the target vulnerable to melee attacks. It can be removed with Veronif's Alchemy, Valeria's Redemption, or Elisa's Deresist skills. Emilia can also use Ignore Harm skill to resist the status.




(c) Zombie Bombs
Dullahan Knight may summon Victims of War nearby, especially when he says: Lead them to Abyss. Victims of War have extremely high AR/DR (177), but they move very slow and do not change target. When they get close to their targets, they will use Suicide Bomb skill to self-destruct. If you notice a Victim of War is following you, let him get close and then when he starts casting, quickly move away out of its area effect. Magic Barrier skill may also help somewhat.

Victim of War • Lv.150 Undead • Light Armor • None • Small
HP 1,440,000 • ATK Rating 177 • ATK 48,960 • DEF Rating 177 • DEF 119
Penetration 0 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 10


(d) Gates of Abyss
Eventually, a zone notice will say: The Gate of Abyss has been summoned. Corrupted Dullahan Attackers and Lancers will spawn from the 3 gates located at F3/G3, E5/F5, and G5. If the boss has started HP Absorption, have the affected characters focus on destroying the gates and clearing the mobs.

In this revised version, monsters appear from the gates very quickly, so it is vital to destroy the gates as soon as possible. Use Protection Field skill to protect against the monsters, if necessary. Corrupted Dullahan Attackers can inflict Lv.1 Blood Curse status (Max HP -12%, Max SP -6%, DEF -23, Movement Speed -12%).

Gate • Lv.140 Object • Soft Armor • None • Medium
HP 8,068,792 • ATK Rating 72 • ATK • DEF Rating 72 • DEF 260
Penetration 0 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 0 • RES - Fire 90, Ice 90, Lightning 90, Mental 90

Corrupted Dullahan Attacker • Lv.140 Demon • Light Armor • None • Medium
HP 4,320,000 • ATK Rating 77 • ATK 43,200 • DEF Rating 73 • DEF 208
Penetration 50 • Magic Penetration - Fire 0, Ice 0, Lightning 0, Mental 0
Immunity 10 • RES - Fire 50, Ice 50, Lightning 50, Mental 50

Immunity 40 • RES - Fire 50, Ice 50, Lightning 50, Mental 50

Ash,

did they weaken him? stats at 81 AR/DR seems weaker than before.

Yes. They did, but mobs from gate spawn much faster now. It is mentioned in the latest Patch Notes.
