Adventurers have risked their lives searching for hidden treasure and good items in the desert while fighting off desert illnesses. Now, there is a new threat that you’ll need to face.
One day, a massive sandstorm swept through the Valencian Desert.
Sandstorms are common and a natural phenomenon in the great desert.
However, this one was different.
For no one has witnessed a sandstorm of this scale.
Nothing survived in its wake.
The people of Valencia attempted to find its cause to help minimize the damage,
but no one was able to approach it.
As time passed,
a journal of an adventurer was found buried beneath the sands.
It’s assumed that the Adventurer wrote down what they saw before being swept away.
The Adventurer wrote that there was a vague shadow inside the massive sandstorm.
So the people started to call this shadow ‘Nouver’, using the name of the Adventurer that wrote it.

◈ Facing Nouver in the Desert
A message with the sound of Nouver’s cry announces the appearance of Nouver.
Sandstorms and desert illnesses are a constant threat in the desert. If you head into the desert unprepared, you can get lost and constantly loose HP.
We suggest getting the ‘Ancient Explorer’s Compass’ if you’re unfamiliar with the desert.
That’s because the ‘Ancient Explorer’s Compass’ lets you see your location on the World Map in the desert if you keep it in your inventory.
▲ You can get the Ancient Explorer’s Compass by placing 3 ‘Part for Explorer’s Compass’ in a - shape then combining them.
▲ You can see where Nouver will appear by looking at the World Map.
◈ Gaining Knowledge Through Quests
The first step to defeating boss monsters is to gain knowledge about them.
Bosses tend to use specific skills when they drop below a certain amount of HP. Therefore, knowing how much HP they have is useful.
You can gain knowledge about Nouver by completing quests from Eugene, the at ‘Ibellab Oasis’.
Talk to Eugene to receive the ‘Karbuta’s Journal’ quest.
After completing the ‘Karbuta’s Journal’ quest, you’ll need to complete ‘Konko’s Journal’ and ‘Brilt’s Journal’.
‘Brilt’s Journal’ is the last quest in this questline and you’ll learn about Nouver as a reward.
▲ Once you finish the quest, you’ll gain A-grade knowledge of Nouver and will be able to see his HP.
◈ Learn Nouver’s Attack Patterns to Survive!
It can be fun to learn about world bosses by fighting them without any prior knowledge. However, you could die if you’re not careful. This could lead to loss of EXP or break precious Magic Crystals that you worked for.
Therefore, if you know how Nouver fights and what skills to look out for, then you could avoid such penalties by being prepared.
We’ll cover Nouver’s basic attacks and 3 skills. This will be helpful for you to know when facing Nouver.
The most fundamental and effective way of fighting monsters is to attack them from behind.
Most monsters, including boss monsters, usually hit whatever is in front of them. Therefore, if you get behind the monster, you can dodge most of their attacks and continue to fight safely.
Also, attacking the enemy from behind allows you to deal additional damage with ‘Back Attack’.
Nouver jumps back, lifts its head up high while breathing in, then breathes out fire. It’s extremely powerful so move to the sides or behind Nouver when you see it jump back and lift its head.
Nouver hides in the sand and creates a whirlwind around him. It’s hard to get out once you get sucked into it, which makes you vulnerable to Nouver’s attacks afterwards. If you are getting sucked in, then try to get out of it using evasion skills.
Nouver flies up to the sky and shoots down fireballs at random targets. You cannot dodge these fireballs so its best to use defensive skills or evasion skills to minimize the damage you take.
◈ New Boss Item - Nouver Sub-weapon!
You have a chance to get the ‘Nouver’s Sealed Sub-weapon Box’ when you defeat Nouver. The ‘Nouver Sub-weapons’ are best used to maximize an Adventurer’s AP. They only have AP, unlike the ‘Kutum Sub-weapons’ that have both AP and DP. It’s currently the most powerful offensive sub-weapon in the game.
