Lets take a look at Elvia Biraghi Den, which is a 240 AP grinding spot. Elvia is a monster zone mechanic that converts low level grinding spots into end game hunting locations with a click of a button. Biraghi Den is considered the 1st step into Elvia fun.

Elvia Biraghi Den Benefits:

  • Drops an ingredient to add Critical Hit Damage +3% to rings.
  • Drops 2 ingredients required to upgrade Blackstar defense gear to Obsidian Blackstar.
  • Drops 2 ingredients for Revived Necklaces.

    Elvia Biraghi Grinding Spot Prep

    • Human Damage crystals are a great help here for Max AP 753 players.
    • Consider skill add-ons that improve AP or Human Damage.
    • Consider using additional foods, potions, and draughts that buff AP like the Frenzy Draught for +30 AP and +3 HP Recovery per hit.
    • Bring scrolls that increase loot drop rate as trash loot is worth a whopping 16k each.
    • Having a tent nearby is very convenient for quick repairs, buying pots, and Villa buffs.
    • You may need to train up and practice defensive and healing skills and buff Health, Defense, Damage Reduction, or Evasion.

    Biraghi Den Monster Type

    Since the monsters at Biraghi Den are human type, we can use Monster AP, Monster Damage, and Human Damage against them. Note that AP is better than damage until the AP Cap is reached.

    Elvia Weapon (NPC Buffs)

    Elvia grinding spots used to give Elvia Weapons. That has been removed. Now it is a buff instead, without any requirement to equip a different weapon.

    This Elvia buff (“Blessing of the Elvia Spirits”) allows you to do much greater damage to Elvia mobs and Elvia bosses.

     

    • “Blessing of the Elvia Spirits” only lasts for 10 minutes!
    • The buff has a 10 minute cool down.
    • There are Daily and Weekly exchange quests you can do to get “Blessing of the Elvia Spirits”. (See Details below.)


    • Elvia buffs are obtained by glowing NPCs that spawn as you are fighting,
    • Chat with the NPC (Okiara, Narc, Valtarra) for a weapon buff.
    • Buff is applied to yourself and party members. Party members must be in your party before the spirit spawns.
    • Not applicable to platoons.
    • Receiving the “Blessing of the Elvia Spirits” will apply the “Reminiscence of the Elvia Spirits” effect, that prevents you from obtaining another “Blessing” buff while under the effects of “Reminiscence.”
    • You can log out to save the buff for later use.
    • +3 extra Monster AP is applied to both main and awakening weapons for 5 minutes. (Whispers of Elvia Realm Spirits) It’s applied by interacting with any spawned ancient spirit and is separate from the “Blessings” and “Reminiscence of the Elvia Spirits” buffs.

     

    Blessings of the Ancient Spirits

    The Elvia ancient spirits spawn and stay for 5 minutes before they disappear. 1 minute before they disappear, their appearance changes.

     

    Elvia Blessing Buff Specifics

    Ancient Spirit buff will increase your damage by different amounts, depending on the grinding spot.

    The minimum damage modifier is 3.5x in bad spots. Better spots give 4.5x damage and optimal spots give 6x damage. Source.

     

    BDO Blessing of Valtarra Weakest Against Burning Valtarra Weapon (fire)

    • Biraghi Den
    • Swamp Nagas
    • Bloody Monastery

    BDO Blessing of Valtarra Weakest Against Thunderous Narc Weapon (storm)

    • Altar Imps
    • Swamp Fogans

    BDO Blessing of Valtarra Weakest Against Torrential Okiara Weapon (water)

    • Castle Ruins
    • Orc Camp

    The Young Valtara NPC looks like a ball of flame. Interact with it to gain the best buff for Biraghi Den, but it seemed to be less frequent than the other elements. Lightning and water are still good, but Bandits are more susceptible to fire. With the right gear, you won’t notice the difference.

    You can also obtain the Elvia weapon buffs via repeatable quests.
