Introduction and basic information

Yizhou Defensive Battle exploration has been introduced first time in Yizhou Defensive Battle version.
Yizhou Defensive Battle is a high level exploration system designed for players level 160 and above. It features a new village, Yizhou as well as Yizhou Pathway instance. After a character reaches level 155, he automatically receives Yizhou Storyline (Questline) designed as an introduction to Yizhou, Yizhou Pathway instance and the new gear upgrading system.


Yizhou and Yizhou Pathway locations

Yizhou and Yizhou Pathway instance are located in Afro-Asian Area on Taiwan Island.


Recommended gear

Its recommended to have at least level 160 profession gear, maxed with superior level refines. Monsters in Yizhou have very high accuracy. 2000 dodge is not enough to make them miss. They all have incredibly high amount health points which makes battles last a long time. They are dealing quite a lot of damage and usually attack in groups. Because of this, lower level players should bring an AB with them. Please note that even with AB, these monsters are very hard to kill and it may take a long time to kill even one of them.


Yizhou Pathway instance

There is no guide about Yizhou Pathway instance available. Please help us by writing one!

Exploration log



Exploration Log is a new unique feature added in Atlantis patch. Exploration Log keeps track of points earned while exploring certain areas in game. Exploring log can be accessed by clicking magnifier icon on bottom of screen above F3 button. Exploring log is divided into 3 categories, Biology Exploration, Industry Exploration and Culture Exploration. Each category is different and uses different ways of obtaining points.

Biology Exploration. Points are obtained by killing creatures around Yizhou and Yizhou Pathway instance. Points are obtained automatically when a creature dies. If one player kills a creature, everyone in his team will receive same amount of points. Its best to team up with players while collecting points. This way you can obtain them much faster.
Industry Exploration. Points are obtained by submitting industry materials to Yizhou Industrial Exploration Collection Merchant in Yizhou. Industry materials are dropped from creatures in Yizhou and Yizhou Pathway instance.
Culture Exploration. Points are obtained by submitting quests from Cards at Yizhou Cultural Collection Merchant in Yizhou. Cards are dropped from creatures in Yizhou and quest items required to complete them are dropped in Yizhou Pathway instance.

Exploration system is also a reward system. Players will receive different rewards as their points grow up. More information about prizes can be found below.

Exploration log activates once the player reaches profession level 120, although not all the points can be gathered yet since a lot of them come from Yizhou Pathway instance and Yizhou Pathway instance cannot be entered until the player reaches profession level 160.


Biology exploration

Biology points are obtained automatically upon killing a certain creature. Killing a creature while being in team will count for everyone in it. This way it is possible collect points up to 5 times faster.

Culture exploration

Culture exploration points are gained by submitting certain quests which are taken from Cards. Cards are dropped from creatures in Yizhou. All quests require certain quest items to be gathered which are dropped from certain creatures in Yizhou Pathway instance. Quest items are only dropped if the quest is active. Once the quest becomes complete, they will stop dropping. To combat this, it is possible to put quest items in pet inventory. While there, they will not count towards quest completion. This way its possible to collect enough items for multiple quests without submitting them each time.
All quests can be submitted in Yizhou at Yizhou Cultural Collection Merchant [-128.6 / -56.6].
