The Loop (Games)

- SE Apollyon is a subsection of the Apollyon zone in the Limbus region.
- It is reached via the Teleport-Mea crag entrance to Al'Taieu.
- The first three floors have 1 Time chest (10 minutes), 1 Items chest and 1 Restore chest.
- You can open all 3 chests on each level (so you can use your 2-hours on each level).
- The Time chest pops after the floor's second normal enemy is defeated.
- The Restore chest pops after the floor's fourth normal enemy is defeated.
- The Items chest pops after the floor's eighth (and final) normal enemy is defeated.
- The fourth floor only has the final Items chest.
- Killing the level boss opens the vortex to the next level.
- Very easily cleared with a balanced group of 12 players.
- Very easily cleared with a balanced group of 8 players killing every mob and left with 15 mins to spare.
- The first floor and a small portion of the second floor can be soloed by NIN.
- A trio (e.g. RDM, NIN, THF) can clear the first two floors.
- A duo (e.g. RDM and THF) can clear all the mobs on the first two floors, aside from the second floor Kraken boss.
- A skilled trio (e.g. RDM, NIN, NIN) can clear all floors pretty consistently.
- A 5-6 person melee party (e.g. NIN, THF, MNK, RDM, BRD) can comfortably defeat all enemies in the zone.
- A 6 man party *3 sam/nin whm/sch brd and blm* defeated all enemies with 15 minutes to spare. Make sure to bring 2 types of damage, Sam's used Great Katana & Polearm.
- A fairly easy duo 85Samurai/Ninja and 85Red Mage/White Mage killing all mobs on all floors, ended with 7 minutes left.
- A well equipped BST99 can clear all floors easily by using any pet that deals slashing damage on floor 1 and 2. Switch to daggers on floor 2 and make liberal use of snarl to take down the kraken. Leave your pet and switch to a MNK like Dapper Mac or Flowerpot Merle for Floor 3 and just let it solo the corse to avoid Danse Macabre. Floor 4 can be done with any pet or weapon with time to spare. Use of Flowerpot Merle viable for floors 2 and 3. Decently geared 99BST will have him doing ~300 dmg per hit and countering often on all mobs. Also his ability Wild Oats counts as Piercing damage and can do upwards of 1100 damage. Head Butt works the same way on floor 3.
- Typical Ancient Beastcoin yield: 45
- Reward for completion: Smalt Chip
