5. Time Piece (2)

Condition:
- Completed "Time Piece (1)" task
Reward:
- None.
Content:
- Go to Lucifer Castle, Basement Warehouse. There are two ways on how you can get there, if you want the easy one, talk to Crow Forest Managing Guard in Byron, Crow Forest and pay him 1 Elemental Jewel to send you to the basement directly, if you want to challenge yourself and explore the castle, you may go to basement through the laboratory. Be careful if you choose to do harder one, prepare what to bring first, Soul Crystals is a must, no matter how tough you character the mobs inside will still give you trouble, so if in case you die you can just revive using SC to continue your exploration.

Tips: Bring a flying character, preferably Emilia Guiliano so you can also use scout buffs. Most of the normal mobs inside can't hit flying, just be careful not to get close to any mini boss because they can hit flying characters. Use Protection Field buff to survive the frogfishes at the entrance. In the mid area after the first hexagonal room, you will encounter some [Slow] traps and Vampire Bat Lords, the bats can still kill you (even with protection field and ET buffs) but the slow traps can inflict also a -50% damage receive buff so this may help you survive from the bats, if in case you still die just revive with soul crystal and they will not hit you anymore. This area also is full of Parasites which will follow you throughout the map, you won't be able to go down and buff if they are around you because they hurt a lot, you can use Invisibility Potion to escape them. In the second big rectangular room, you will see a lot of lightning and freeze orbs roaming around, try not to get touch by them or it may give you some problem. You will also see Dark Garim in this room, it will not hit you unless you get too close. The 2nd hexagonal room on the right side of the map is also a boss room like the first one, you don't need to go though here. After passing through the second rectangular room you will pass a corridor full of Vordoi, but no need to worry about them because they can't hit flying, just continue until you reach the third hexagonal room. Nothing much to see on this room, it's also a boss room, the devices surrounding it will summon the boss, just keep moving until you get close to the entrance of the warehouse. The last corridor doesn't have any mobs, but the entrance to the warehouse itself will be surrounded by a Corrupt Takion and some Vampire Bat Lords, just try to buff yourself up, but most likely you will still die from these mobs, if that happens just revive again using soul crystal and immediately click the green arrow going to the warehouse, the mobs may block the arrow so I suggest you put your monster effects to minimum.

- Once you get inside the warehouse, go to J-9 near the barrels to acquire the 2nd Time Piece.
