MapleSEA Justice – Liberation of Azwan



Azwan is an ancient underground city beneath the Nihal Desert. It was recently rediscovered by the Cygnus Knights, following the attempt by its leader, Hilla, to usurp Empress Cygnus’ throne.

Hundreds of years ago, Azwan was a beautiful and thriving metropolis. The beautiful and powerful Hilla, who was a chief sharmaness, craved more power. In exchange for eternal power, youth and beauty, she betrayed her city to become a commander under Black Mage.

She took control of Azwan and used necromancy to revive its dead population as minions in her army. She lined the city with giant, magical totems to recapture the souls of her fallen forces so they could returnagain.

The obelisk that serves as the entrance to Azwan has recently reappeared in the desert and has come under investigation by the Cygnus Knights. Brave adventurers can join the fight, leading forces from Ereve in their battle to defeat Hilla’s army and free the enslaved souls of the citizens of Azwan.

  • If enemies reach the left side, the Guardian Tower will recover HP.

The Guardian Tower (Right)

The Guardian Tower uses two powerful beam attacks that will deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have. Use Cygnus Minions as tanker.

The Owl Tower (Centre)

The Owl Tower drops rocks and deals massive damage. These rocks deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have. Take cover by trying to take cover while they hover in the air for a moment before dropping.

When in Hard or Hell Mode

Hilla’s Altar will appear in Hard and Hell modes to increase the challenge.

There are some differences between the Occupy mode altars and the Attack mode altars:

  • Altars in Occupy mode have a wider attack range than those in Attack mode.
  • Altars in Attack mode have an additional skill that recovers the Guardian Tower’s HP.

Defend Mode

This mode focuses on a tower defence strategy. Prevent the Cygnus Faith Stone from being destroyed to win.

There are two strategies to win:

  • Smash all of the ballistae.

  • Protect the Cygnus Faith Stone until time runs out.

This area functions much like a normal hunting mini dungeon. There is no difficulty option for this mode.

How to play?

Monsters will drop Azwan Supply Boxes. Collect 100 boxes and use the portal within the map to visit Longorias to complete the quest. This is a repeatable quest on a daily basis.
