Greetings to all,
So you have decided to embark on this perilous journey on attempting to challenge Hatred Pirandello – Dark Lair Lvl40 Dungeon.
It is definitely not going to be cake-walk, bear that in mind.
I hope this guide will be useful to you.
First watch the Video Guide
Hatred Pirandello, is basically ran for 2 reasons.
1. For the Gerriant Skill Crest – Which you acquire at Round 36, after defeating Gerriant at Round 35.
You have 2 Options when bringing the plate go Gerriant.
Dragon Disintegration – Matk Based Skill Crest, Looks like Linear Ray EX for Force User
Dragon Flap – Patk Based Skill Crest, Shockwave skill Gerriant does when you fight him at round 35
2. For the Title, which gets awesome stats, see below.
There are a total of 36 Rounds to be completed in Hatred Pirandello, but only 35 rounds of fighting. Round 36 is just the killing of the duck/hound which drops you the Gerriant Skill plate!
Note that gears (aside from skill rings and skill heraldries) do not affect your damage in Hatred Pirandello, you can refer to it having the same effects as Compensation ON in Colosseum PVP, this applies to overall HP/MP for every class as well.
I’ll move on to highlighting the the various knowledge you need to have before attempting this dungeon.
Party Composition is the crux of being able to complete the dungeon successfully.
Just take a look at the top 5 fastest timings for Hatred Pirandello and you will realize this important fact.
There’s always 2DPS/1MS/1SS in the party composition.
DPS – Damage per second
MS – Main Support
SS – Secondary Support
For DPS roles, EL/SM/Merc/BM can take it up. Elemental Lord being the highest on DPS definitely.
For MS Roles, priest or paladin!
The recommended party composition will definitely be
For SS Roles, Acrobat & Force User for spirit boost and beyond time respectively.
Note : Acrobat can also be considered as a DPS role, so it actually fulfils 2 roles at one time!
Reason for having such roles is because, even though there’s the availability of HP/MP Food in the dungeon, there are instances where they despawn or they simply ain’t enough. Hence support roles such as priest play a great part in the completion of this dungeon.
Decide your party composition before entering Hatred Pirandello, stacking all 4 of the same classes to attempt it is strongly not recommended!!!
There are 4 types of rounds in Hatred Pirandello as you can say see above.
The one which you need to watch out for is the Survivability Round.
They are in increasing difficulty.
First : Goblin Archers (Around 1kDMG per Arrow)
2nd : Goblin Cannons (Around 2kDMG per Cannon)
3rd : Harpies (Can trap you with their summoning of Cyclones)
4th : Manticores @ Round 26 (White ; They will jump around and impact upon landing will deal massive damage)
Bear in mind this sequence, the one to watch out for is Round 26 with the manticores as this will occur straight after the map change at Round 25.
Speaking about this, here’s a very important part of Hatred Pirandello that you need to know
The map changes at Round 15 and Round 25
This is very very important because when you kill the ducks for HP food and are saving them for life/death situations, these items will not stay after the map change. You will be transported into another map.
So always remind your party members to finish up the food around especially MP Food whenever you see round 15 or round 25 approaching.
Fret not, Round 15 & Round 25 themselves are a duck spawning round, take that as a cue to finish eating up all your food and making sure everyone leaves that round with 100% hp
Since we are talking about food, here’s another very very important point you need to note about Hatred Pirandello.
Make sure there’s a priority list done for the deciding who gets to eat the MP Food first.
You don’t want a situation where there’s someone with 90% MP eating the 30% MP food while there’s another member at 50% MP. The MP Food drops at the purple portals at the corners of the map.
Always call-out to your team mates when you see one of them spawning and asking if anyone of them needs it more than you do!
Aside from all this, Hatred Pirandello should be relatively simple to do until the these rounds.
Round 33/34/35 – Manticore/Cerberus/Gerriant Respectively
This is the juncture where most people will have difficulty with.
The key to this is to decide upon strategies that you want to employ to tackle these stages.
For Round 33 – Manticore Boss Stage, there are 2 strategies that you might want to try.
1. Focus Firing on Main Manticore Boss ( Not recommended )
2. Clear all the Mini-Manticore Boss first, before focus firing on the Main Manticore Boss
Both will work, but depending on the comfortability of your party. My party used the 2nd strategy instead.
Round 34 – Cerberus
This stage is relatively easy, just focus fire on the MAIN Cerberus before clearing the mini ones.
Round 35 – Gerriant
Gerriant is basically a working Swordmaster with abilities of a Paladin. He has auto block.
Note that he can 4-5 shot you if you’re careless!!!
If you’re already so far into the dungeon, don’t die!!!
Strategy to killing Gerriant is very simple.
Either kite hit from afar until dead
Have a miracle relic combo, which involves everyone engaging Gerriant ONLY when Miracle Relic is up. Spam all the cooldowns available to you and rinse repeat till dead.
NEVER Stand in front of Gerriant if you don’t have his attention!!!!
I hope this guide is useful in helping you complete Hatred Pirandello.
Teamwork and communication is definitely important, don’t expect to clear it on your first try even with the help of this guide.
