Prerequisites

Strategy

  • All participating members must be the same race.
  • Battlefield will spawn four NMs. One for every race but your own. They will aggro one at a time, and when it reaches low HP the next will aggro.
  • All mobs use Great Swords, and all Great Sword Weapon Skills up to Crescent Moon.
    • Shockwave is dangerous, as it is an AOE sleep.
  • Each mob has a different weakness:
    • Elvaan: Weak to skillchain damage.
    • Mithra: Weak to ranged attacks.
    • Tarutaru: Weak to physical attacks. Can cast Ancient Magic. Appears to have Fast Cast, can use Flare in less than 6 seconds.
    • Galka: Weak to magic.
    • Hume: Takes on the weaknesses of your race (ex: If a Mithra party attempts this ENM, the Hume will be weak to Ranged Attacks).
  • Other than its weakness, each mob is highly resistant to all other damage.
  • Both earrings can potentially drop.
  • Lugworm Sand is common, but the earrings are rather rare.
