The Forbidden Land, Eureka Pagos
While technically an instance, it has a few unique rules on entering. First off, you enter by talking to Rodney rather than via the duty finder, and you can enter solo without a queue and find other players inside. In many ways, it is like an open zone, just one that allows you to meet people across the whole data center and with a 2 hour timer.
The Magia Board
Welcome to your best friend: Magicite and the magia board. By allocating magicite to the board at the Magia Melder in Port Surgate, you can increase your elemental parameters and increase your attack and defense against certain monsters. You begin Eureka with 1 magicite, and will earn more as you perform quests for Krile.
There are essentially two triangles on the board to show the pair of elemental patterns. Lightning is strong against water, which is strong against earth, which is strong against lightning. Fire is strong against ice, which is strong against wind, which is strong against fire. The board UI itself has lines to illustrate this point.
As for how it interacts with enemies, magicite allocated to an element strong against the monster's element (for instance, lightning against a water element monster) will increase your offensive capabilities. Allocating the SAME element (Such as water against water monsters) will increase your defensive capabilities. How you choose to allocate is up to you, but generally it's useful to either put them all in the same node to maximize your benefits, or to split them up in some fashion between nodes two spaces apart to have some offense and defense against a foe.
Lastly, you can freely spin the wheel. This allows you to change your element depending on what you're fighting. This will cost you one Magia Aether (represented by a number in the middle of the board), but only once it "settles". When you spin the board there is a timer that appears, refreshing with each spin. If you spin again before the timer empties, that extra spin costs nothing. This allows you to spin the wheel until it matches up exactly where you want it for just one MA. Lastly, MA fills up slowly over time, and fully refills when checking the Magia Melder. So, in short, allocate for offense, defense, or a mix against a single element, and then spin to match whatever new camp you're at.
All of the FATEs located inside of Eureka: Pagos are NM fates. They can often be be spawned by defeating a specific enemy type at the location of the FATE after a certain amount of time has passed since the FATE was previously active. Some have other conditions that must be met such as time or weather.
Upon completion, the FATE will reward Elemental EXP, Pagos Lockboxes, and Pagos Crystals. Some FATEs also have special rewards such as minions and equipment.
Please use the map to the right to view the locations of monsters and NMs.
