Ragnarok Online 2 – Payon Dungeon Moonlight flower

Written By LordHi

Moonlight Flower can be found on the 4th floor of Payon Dungeon for characters of lvl’s 28-34. And the few bosses at mid-lvl with an actual mechanic that must be obeyed if not the entire party will i repeat WILL face a wipe.

Now it is greatly advised that you get a priest with the emergency aoe heal and dmg protection that is “SANCTUARY” just in case and that MAXIMUM only 3 members of your party are melee, anything more and the healer cannot cope.

There are few essentials that you must get down if you are to attempt this boss.

1.) The boss will cast an aoe stun occasionally that ranges in duration from 1-2 seconds and drops 2 tombstones next to her. DPS down these 2 tombstones, they will spawn 2 NPC’s on your side whom will grant an aura buff reducing 30% dmg of the stun that Moonlight Flower will cast occasionally. Please note the aura buff radius is incredibly small meaning you have to literally stack on top of the NPC’s spawned.

2.) She will spawn 3 Foxes (1.5-2.5k hp, cant really remember) as is the usual RO2 boss mechanic at random intervals. Recommend that you dps down these quickly as they usually go for the healers immediately.

3.) She will also cast an occasional black circle around her with a rather large radius, the only WARNING that you will get prior to this is a WHISTLE. When you hear that whistle, the black circle will spawn 1-2 seconds later on the position in which she whistled from so when you hear the whistle you can pull her away first and the circle will spawn at that original position that you pulled her away from 1-2 seconds later, so pull her away from the position where she whistled and get out of there ASAP.It is VERY IMPORTANT that you pull her OUT of the circle and that NO party members are inside of the circle. FAILING to do so will result in either an instant wipe or 1-1.5k dmg.

(*NOTE: Seems that if she is nearby the circle the AOE wipe dmg will still trigger, Recommend you pull her a bit away from the black circle.)

(*ADDITIONAL NOTE: There are occasions of her casting her stun just as the black circle comes out, thus not giving you enough time to run causing a wipe. Please I cannot stress this enough, listen out for the WHISTLE. You hear that, you run.)

4.) (*Unconfirmed) She will also occasionally cast a black swirling tornado around her body immediately. This damage is UNAVOIDABLE and can range from 200hp to 50% of your hp or none at all (Which is weird, and I hope someone can clarify this). So bring pots along.

5.) Once her HP reaches 45,000 she will summon 2 illusions of herself with hp ranging from 3.5-4.5k. Immediately shift all dps to them and get rid of these as a few seconds later she WILL summon 3 foxes and your healer will not be able to cope nor will your tank be able to pull them all. Be warned certain parties at this stage might find all of themselves with HP’s around 200-500HP. It is at this point that the priest’s Sanctuary AOE heal and dmg protection comes in handy as it is a LIFESAVER. Like I said only a few parties will face such a crisis, not all.

(*NOTE: The effect of sanctuary is only within 10M radius of the priest so make sure everyone is within that safety zone.)

Once you pass the illusion stage, it is pretty much the same thing. Just listen out for the whistle, stay near the 2 NPC’s to get dmg reduction from her stuns and pull her out of the black circle and deal with the mobs accordingly.

Credits to kanapwn and BerryX on Jormungand server for explaining most of the mechanics to me on my first time and getting it down on our 3rd attempt with 3 new guys on the party.

Ragnarok Online 2 SEA – Short guide for Abandoned Lab

1) Abandoned laboratory 37 – Zaratik

Recommend questing until you do not have two quests in the award – winning Dungeon pattern sword and pattern torso. inside is still one more questpattern pants. all blue on Level 37.

I guess I must say that inst extremely simple. much easier than the basement in the Forest.

3 Khara quest.

– Kill 2 times final Boss
– kill 4 certain mobs in instances
– Kill all sorts of goblins can done for 2-3 visits

the first room on the perimeter of a large lot of trash goblins does not necessarily kill.

The first boss. GET OUT from purple circle on the ground. MAX heal and the best running back of strong AoE. screams in red chat.

straight corridor. if you do not need to Khara quest mobs then just ahead.

2 boss wall at all

BOSS wall.. but on 20% in the center of the room is four casters that cause hell demon bat . you have just a few seconds to kill all 4. otherwise wipe

Labour drops armor 37 subjects

Advice – Kinsaurus

my first party : 1 wizard (me), 2 sorcerers, 1 assassin and 1 warrior
we were all strangers for each other, first timers, same level around 38 or 39, knew nothing about this dungeon, yet we cleared this dungeon quick and easily.
because we were a full dps team, we killed 4 summoners easily and none of us knew what would happen if we killed those summoners late.

my second party : 1 wizard (me), 1 knight, 1 priest, 1 assassin and 1 warrior (same level around 38 or 39 too)
and that time, i knew what hell would happen if we killed those summoners late… our party lacked of dps, we killed those summoners late and we ended up spending almost an hour trying to beat the final boss & his summoners. well, last try i was lucky enough to have 3 consecutive critical fire bolts to kill one summoner, helped assassin to kill another, and lastly used fire explosion to kill the last remaining summoner that our knight and priest tried to beat desperately (our warrior was doing his part well).

my advice is : get a full dps party to clear this dungeon easily.
