Notorious Monsters

Eureka hydatos2.jpg

Players may encounter notorious monsters that cannot be found in other regions of Eureka. Those who would engage them are advised to seek aid from other adventurers.

Defeating notorious monsters yields a great deal of elemental EXP, as well as various rewards.

The Baldesion Arsenal

The baldesion arsenal1.png
The baldesion arsenal2.png

The Baldesion Arsenal is a brutally difficult open dungeon that can be challenged by up to 56 players at once. To enter, you will need to complete the main Eureka storyline and prepare for the worst.

The entry requirements for this duty are extremely strict, as savage bosses, devious traps, and an effect that prevents resurrection by certain means all await you within.

Those who hope to challenge this dungeon should read all available information thoroughly, and properly understand the risks before entering.

Entering the Baldesion Arsenal

Aetherial nodes throughout Hydatos can provide access to the Baldesion Arsenal.

To make use of these nodes, your elemental level must be 60. You will also require a particular status enhancement.

Aetherial Nodes

Aetherial nodes1.png

There are two varieties of aetherial nodes: unstable blue nodes, and stable red nodes. Regardless of type, each node will disappear once accessed by a player, or if a certain amount of time passes without its being accessed.

  • Only the player who accesses a node will be transported, even if that player is in a party at the time.

The appearance of aetherial nodes is related to the atmospheric condition umbral turbulence.

Unstable Aetherial Nodes

An Aetheric Stabilizer is required to use unstable nodes. Aetheric Stabilizers can be acquired in Hydatos through various means, and will be consumed once they are used to access a node.

Stable Aetherial Nodes

Stable nodes do not require the use of Aetheric Stabilizers. However, each will only appear after a certain amount of time has passed following the disappearance of an unstable node.

Resurrection Restrictions

The detrimental status effect "Resurrection Restricted" will be applied upon entering the Baldesion Arsenal. While this status is active, you can only be resurrected via limit break or a specific logos action. For this reason, be aware that KO carries a heavy risk.

Withdrawal and Re-entry

If you use choose the Return function from the menu, or accept the prompt to return to the starting point while KO'd in the Baldesion Arsenal, you will be removed from the dungeon and transported to the expedition camp in Eureka Hydatos. To re-enter the dungeon, you will once again need to access an aetherial node, so think carefully before returning.

Rewards

Main article: The Baldesion Arsenal#Loot

Those who defeat the bosses within and clear the entirety of the Baldesion Arsenal will be richly rewarded. To do so will be no mean feat, however─you must communicate well with your fellow adventurers if any of you are to reach the prize.

Lore

Having conquered the burning landscape of Pyros, the expedition pushes onward to a region ruled by water: Hydatos. Here rises the headquarters of the Students of Baldesion, their final destination, but aetheric anomalies and fearsome creatures conspire to ensure that entry will not be easily gained. Yet gain entry to the tower they must if they are to head off the threat of the primal Eureka and lay the isle's mysteries to rest once and for all...
