Map is divided into 4 parts:



It is recommended that you kill all the monsters all along the way as they drop quest items that you need to unlock the last area where Kraken is. The items are Squidgitte’s Tentacle, Lamp Ray’s Fin, Octopot’s Shell, and King Kray’s Pincer.

1. Entry Area

Keep following the path then head to the stairs and look for the corpse and collect the treasure map


1st Key: Look around the algae in this area and you will get a key.


Then head to the door, it will ask you the name of the city, type Atlanture to enter.


2. Bubble Area

The moment you enter this area Nobby will mention about the bubbles. There are 13 bubbles to deactivate, you can deactivate it by simply clicking the bubbles. A text will appear once you deactivate a bubble. After that, it will open up the door to the next area. Before heading out the door, pass by the staircase and look for a key in the center of the door way. Head to Nobby and he will warp you to the next area.



2nd Key: You can obtain the key if you deactivate all the bubbles and then pass by the stairs and look for it in the doorway. If you succeed, you will get the 2nd key as well as the title Bubbler.



3. Barracks Area

3rd Key: In this area, you'll see a monster like weapon like Tirfing, Mysteltainn and Executioner. Hunt and kill them all  then you'll obtain the 3rd key. You can obtain the 4th key by simply opening the altar door.


In this area, you will also need those 4 quest items from the mobs. Worry not if you weren't able to get all because Nobby will sell those for hefty 10,000,000z each, (dang Nobby!). Otherwise, he will give you an option to go back to the first area. Once you have completed you may go to the altar and put all the 4 items. The door will open up that will lead to the next area.



4. Kraken Area


The last area is where the Kraken is located. Around the map, there are 4 pairs of Tentacles (8 in total) and 2 appendages beside the Kraken itself. If you have not killed all of them before facing the Kraken you will not be able to deal a lot of damage. When you have killed all of them Kraken will be easier to kill.


Note: Land Protector is a must, otherwise you won't be able to hit the Kraken, It cast a skill Pneuma. Make sure you have a Professor class or you may wear an armor with Detale card.        



Once you have killed the Kraken you'll obtain the 5th key. Head to the center of the map to find the treasure box waiting. You have 2 minutes until Nobby finds the way out. Congrats!!!







Keys are related to what kind of rewards you will get:


Aside from these rewards you can also find a lot of Tidal Shoes and collect Ice Piece for another quest here in the instance. There is also an achievement where upon the completion of 100 Kraken’s Lair instance you will be awarded a costume.


Special thanks to Wafflewich :) and for my friends who give tips on how to do parts of the instance. Thank you for reading and enjoy! Comments and suggestions are welcome.
