Major Update: Padix Island Revamped

Changed Padix Island to a monster zone with a recommended AP of 270.

– A new strain of Mutant Loah Flowers have begun to bloom at Padix Island.

– Cox Pirates who smell the Mutant Loah Flowers have become dangerously violent with a sudden surge in their powers.

– Affected pirates are recognizable by the "[Addicted to Mutant Loah Flower]" title over their heads.

– Defeating a monster at Padix Island Up will reward up to two adventurers but knowledge entries are shared between the affected monsters and their non-addicted counterparts.

– The Loah Flower Pots in the cave at Padix Island will release a heavy fragrance of Mutant Loah Flowers at random intervals, causing the Cox Pirates around them to become violent.  


– Violent Cox Pirates have increased AP & DP and some of their attacks ignore Guard/Super Armor status and inflict knockback. 

– Interact with the Loah Flower Pots to add Mutant Loah Flower Neutralizers that will stop the pirates from being affected by the flowers, return them to their normal AP & DP, and make them no longer ignore Guard and Super Armor status. 

– There is a chance that a large number of Mutant Loah Snakes will appear when a Mutant Loah Flower Neutralizer is added to a Loah Flower Pot. 

– Defeating the Mutant Loah Snakes will give you a high chance of obtaining Ancient Platinum Coins and a low chance for Ethereal Earrings.

Added a Simple Alchemy recipe for the new item Mutant Loah Flower Neutralizer. 

Simple Alchemy Ingredients 


– Mutant Loah Flower x1 

Mutant Loah Flower Neutralizer 

– Highly Concentrated Herbal Juice x20 

– Fire Horn x35

Added quests about Cox Pirates for Padix Island.

– Accept the quests from Lavine the Node Manager of Padix Island for a character that is at least Lv. 61.
