Saturday & Sunday – History 221 – Ancient Civilizations

On Saturday and Sunday, you will have the option of studying Ancient Civilizations. Dive into a Shadow Mission or Dungeon and defeat monsters – they will sometimes drop an Ancient Treasure Chest fragment. Gather up 10 ancient fragments and bring them to “Professor” Eavan in Dunbarton. She will reward with you with two items: a Gift Box and an Ancient Treasure Chest. The Gift Box is easily opened, but you will need a special key from the “Student Store” in order to open the Ancient Treasure Chest. [1]

Basic Information

  • Finishing a monster in a dungeon or shadow mission will randomly result in an Ancient Treasure Chest Fragment being dropped.
    • Despite the event's description, fragments will also drop from dungeons within the continent of Iria.
    • Fragments drop from all monsters in Shadow Missions and dungeons. Fragments will not drop from monsters in the field such as Bears or Raccoons.
    • Fragments will drop if you're playing as a pet.
      • However, you cannot pick up fragments while playing as the pet itself.
    • If your pet deals the finishing blow on the monster and a fragment drops, your pet must be summoned (you must be playing a Human/Elf/Giant) to be able to pick up the fragment.
      • Once the monster's body disappears, you may pick it up even if you de-summoned your pet.
  • Ancient Treasure Chest Fragments can also be stored in pets.
  • All level monsters drop fragments.
    • The higher a monster's CP class, the more often they drop fragments.
      • Weakest monsters hardly ever drop fragments.
      • It is possible to get around this by enabling pet auto-finish and using a somewhat weak pet to attack.
      • You may also Summon a Stone Golem since they have low CP.
      • You can also use -CP enchants to make monsters stronger.
        • This method may require a large number of potentially expensive enchants, depending on your CP.
        • See CP Modifiers for details
