You must have a Key of Bellem and can only enter within a specific time period. There will be a server wide announcement whenever the Bellem Ruins are open. Bellem Ruins is a place where mini bosses and bosses are summoned randomly. After hunting the Mini boss and the boss monster, you will find a treasure chest with your name on it which can only be opened by you.
How can I enter Bellem Ruins?
You can enter Bellem Ruins when the Bellem Tombstone is unsealed. Every 3 hours, there will be a server-wide notice:
[Notice] After 10 minutes, the Bellem Tombstone will be released from its seal.
Another notice will flash after 10 minutes:
[Notice] Bellem Tombstone is unsealed.
By clicking on the unsealed tombstone, you can enter Bellem Ruins if you have a Key of Bellem in your inventory. The tombstone remains open for 10 minutes. After 3 hours, the cycle repeats with the notice of the tombstone re-opening in 10 minutes. This means there is a time gap of about 3 hours 20 minutes between each opening of the tombstone.
Clicking on the sealed tombstone will provide you with the background story:
|Montoro? He attacked my land, performed brutal experiments on our people. All my followers have become monsters because of him. I have to seal this place to prevent them from escaping and harming others. After using the key on the box, I shall destroy the box and hide its pieces along with the key. This way, it will give you a hard time in searching for the key. Even if you have the key, you might not be able to defeat them. Once you fail, you will have to return to the place where you came from. This sealed entrance will be opened once every 3 hours.|
Unlike Underground Relics which you can sneak in without a key (by waiting for someone else to open it), each family entering Bellem Ruins must have a key. This is not a quest instance, so everyone who enter the ruins will be on the same map.
Where can I find Bellem Tombstone?
Bellem Tombstone is located at G11 on Island of Fire (channel 1 only). Since Bellem Ruins is located in Island of Fire, all families are on PVP mode for PVP servers. (No PVP mode for non-PVP servers, just like Island of Fire.)
Where can I find the Key of Bellem?
This key is a random reward for collecting 20 cabinet pieces for the Old Woman in Auch (D4). To acquire cabinet pieces, go to Prison de Joaquin, Schivarliere, starting at 1pm or 10pm (GMT+8) for about 30 minutes. Note that the server time may lag about 10 minutes or so behind your local time. (To check server-local time difference, take note of your local time when Colony War starts on Sunday 8pm.)
Clicking on any 1 Overturn Box will spawn ALL Successful Subjects (Lv81) in the same channel. (This monster was formerly known as Succeed Reagent in v2.1.18.) When killed, the monster drops a random cabinet piece and Pure Ionium. Each box only spawns 1 Successful Subject. If nothing happens when you click on the box, then it is either you are too early/late or the monster has already been spawned (and most likely, killed).
Once you collected a full set of 20 different cabinet pieces, return to the Old Woman for a random reward. Besides the Key of Bellem, other possible reward includes Pure Gold Bar x3, Unique Lv76 Weapon Recipe, Elite Lv52 Weapon/Armor Recipe, and Elite Lv68 Weapon/Armor Recipe. (The elite recipes seem to be added in v2.4.) When a key is produced, the Old Woman says:
|This is the key. It looks like a new key but look at the year it was manufactured ? 1521! Hmm.. It is the year Queen Esperanza was born. Here it is. I have no idea how to use this, but it might bring you a good luck. If that happens, don?t forget about me!|
Once you enter the ruins, the key is consumed. (The key was misnamed in v2.1.18 as ?Key of Balem?.) Note: Do NOT confuse cabinet pieces with puzzle pieces ? They are not the same thing!
v3.2 Update: The regeneration schedule for the overturn box in Prison de Joaquin has been increased to 6 times a day ? 1000hrs, 1300hrs, 1600hrs, 1900hrs, 2200hrs, 0100hrs. See v3.2 Patch Notes.
How long can I stay in the ruins?
You can stay until 1 hour has passed since the bosses spawned. Like Underground Relics, you may not re-enter if you leave the dungeon or return to Barracks. You may not change channel within the ruins.
What is the Bellem Ruins map like?
The map looks exactly like the map of Underground Relics. Note that unlike Underground Relics which brings you to a safe platform first before ?teleporting? you into the skeletal mobs, you immediately enter into the open space with mobs when you enter Bellem Ruins.
Grids D-E are free from mobs, so you might want to lure the bosses over here to fight them.
What kind of monsters are inside the ruins?
Failed subjects (Lv81) are the non-boss monsters inside the ruins. These monsters drop pure ores and mega ores.
About 10 minutes after the tombstone is unsealed, a zone-wide notice will flash at the top of the screen:
BOSSNAME1 Summoned Monster.
After 1 hour, all families will be moved out of the zone.
BOSSNAME2 Summoned Monster.
There could be 1-5 random bosses (Lv90-100) spawning at about the same time. The bosses spawn in the middle of the map. They do not drop anything when killed. If you do not defeat the bosses within an hour, there will be a zone-wide notice:
After 1 minute, all families will be moved out of the zone.
If you still do not defeat the bosses, you will be moved back to Island of Fire.
Known bosses include Gerero, Swamp Frogfish, Dr. Fran Mothtein, Dream Blade Antelope, King of Greed, Elmorc, Phobitan Chieftain, Phobitan General, Sabel Tiger, Victor, Cerbera, Castor, Pollux, Wahlansche, Captain Sharffenberger, Giant Cockatrice, Gullfaxi, Sunflower Dandelion Gorilla, and Goldhorn Demon.
My worst boss combo so far was Lv96 Victor, Lv91 Dream Blade Antelope, Lv94 King of Greed, and Lv97 Gerero. (It is somewhat pointless to post boss stats, since the boss types and levels are random.)
What do I do with my family treasure box?
When you enter the ruins, there will be a locked treasure box with your family name (i.e. FAMILYNAME Treasure Box). Once all the bosses are dead, there will be a zone-wide notice:
You can open the treasure box.
All families will be moved out of the zone in 90 seconds.
Other families (if any) may not open your family treasure box. The box contains a Lv84 elite weapon/armor or Lv84-88 controller/caliburn/hammer.
What is Bellem?s Treasure Box?
Once the family treasure box has been opened, there will be a zone-wide notice:
Bellem treasure box has been summoned.
A huge treasure box will appear near the middle of the map. All families in the ruins may then attack the treasure box.
Upon destruction, Bellem?s Treasure Box drops a Lv84 elite weapon/armor or Lv100 AR30 weapon (e.g. Conqueror Cannon, Bracelet of Ziz). There will be another zone-wide notice:
All families will be moved out of the zone in 10 seconds.
So quickly loot before you are moved back to Bellem Tombstone in the Island of Fire.
Does killing the boss (e.g. Swamp Frogfish) count towards quest requirement?
No. The bosses here do not count towards quests or hunt missions from Pioneering Memorial/Colony Manager.
Do the bosses drop Constellation Symbols, Dragon Heart Recipe, etc.?
I said above that the bosses don?t drop anything when killed. What do you think?
