Swamp Naga Grinding Spot Prep

Naga Swamp has an Optimal AP between 260-280. AP numbers over 280 will not help you kill faster. To do well here, you will need to pay careful attention to your health and the locations of Poisonous Swamp Plants. These plants inflict poison damage, but lower Naga defenses when defeated.

  • Expect to repair gear frequently.
  • Expect to heal frequently. Bring lots of HP pots!
  • Consider using additional foods, potions, and draughts like the Frenzy Draught for the +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.
  • Train up and practice defensive and healing skills
  • Consider skill add-ons that improve Health, Defense, Damage Reduction, or Evasion.

Elvia – Naga Swamp Mechanics

Naga Swamp Commander

  • At 90% health, Naga Commander spawns 9 minions.
    • Commanders drop more trash loot than the adds.
  • Fogan Raiding Parties will randomly spawn and join the nagas in attacking you.
    • Fogans Raiding Parties drop the same loot as fogans at the Elvia Fogan Swamp area.

Poisonous Swamp Plants

  • Attacking Poisonous Swamp Plants debuffs the DP of mobs inside the green aura.
  • Poisonous Swamp Plants also poison you, draining both your health and mana.
    • Consider using potions/elixirs that restore HP/MP/SP/WP (Spirit Perfume Elixir)

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.
