Hello Isyans,

As many of you may already know, Fiesta will have two additional bosses joining the current ranks soon: Malephar (Hard Mode) and Helga (Hard Mode)! I'm sure everyone is curious and waiting in anticipation to see what new challenges and rewards await those who are able to successfully defeat Malephar and Helga.

I hope to bring some inital strategies for our community to use once these challenging bosses are released. Consider the following info to be early (and by no means definitive) guides to these two new bosses.

 

 

Malephar Overview

There have been a few aesthetic changes to Malephar in Hard Mode. Players will notice new background music as well as new sounds effects. Malephar (Hard Mode) is designed for players between the level ranges of 105 - 110. The Fiesta Team recommends a well-balanced, 40-player team of tanks, healers, and damage dealers (with more emphasis on damage).

 

New Malephar Skills

Malephar will have 2 new skills in Hard Mode: Summoning of Darkness and Strength of Darkness.

Summoning of Darkness: When Malephar's health is dropped down to 75%, 50%, & 25%, he will summon Destructors and Bloodsuckers to assist him in battle.

Strength of Darkness: Malephar casts a series of Reinforcement Buffs that circulate in a certain cycle.


Useful Hints/Strategies

The Malephar (Hard Mode) Gate can be found north of the Land of Darkness. 

When Malephar casts the spell Summoing of Darkness, the raid group must make sure the Destructors and Bloodsuckers are killed quickly. The Strength of Darkness spell stacks over time and it is recommended that Raid Groups are sufficiently supplied with Damage Dealers.


Drops & Rewards

Raid groups that are successful in defeating Malephar (Hard Mode) will be rewarded with some powerful items, as well as quest items and never-before-seen items! These items include but are not limited to productions materials, new accessories, weapons, armor and quest items to unlock new quests!

 

 

Helga Overview

There have been a few aesthetic changes to Helga in Hard Mode, too. Players will notice new background music as well as new sound effects. The map for Helga (Hard Mode) has a few pieces of the Temple of Soul map and the texture of the monsters inside the tomb have been modified. Players will also notice a new set of monsters around an item called Bijou's Ball.

Helga (Hard Mode) is designed for players between the level ranges of 95 - 105. The Fiesta Team recommends a well-balanced, 40-player team of tanks, healers, and damage dealers (with more emphasis on damage).


New Helga Skills

Helga will have 1 new skill in Hard Mode: Summoning of Darkness.

Summoning of Darkness: When Helga casts Summoning of Darkness, monsters around Bijou's Ball will begin to activate the Altar of Revival. When the Altar of Revival is active, Helga's attack and defense will increase by 20% every 10 secounds. This effect will stack up to 10 stacks. Also, any attacks on Helga are reflected back at the player.


Useful Hints/Strategies

The Helga (Hard Mode) Gate can be found at the Swamp of Soul. 

Upon entering Helga's Tomb, raid groups will notice that Helga is immobile and monsters surrounding Bijou's Ball are attempting to revive this great boss. The battle is initiated once all monsters around Bijou's Ball are defeated.

The monsters around Bijou's Ball will not attack the player but will respawn after a period of time and attempt to activate the Altar of Revival. It is recommended that Raid Groups defeat these monsters as quickly as possible.

It is imperative to stop attacking Helga when the Altar of Revival is active. It is encouraged that all players stop attacking Helga and focus on targeting the monsters around Bijou's Ball.


Drops & Rewards

Raid groups that are successful in defeating Helga (Hard Mode) will be rewarded with some powerful items, as well as quest items and never-before-seen items! This items include but are not limited to new accessories, weapons, armor and quest items to unlock new quests! 

 

Good luck, Isyans, and happy hunting!
