- NW Apollyon is a subsection of the Apollyon zone in the Limbus region.
- Requires a Red Card and Cosmo-Cleanse.
- It is reached via Teleport-Dem crag entrance to Al'Taieu.
- The first four floors have 3 Time chests (5 minutes each), 1 Items chest and 1 Restore chest.
- The fifth floor only has an Items chest.
- You can open all chests as soon as you find them (so you can use your 2-hours on all bosses).
- The Time chests and Restore chest are always out. The Items chest is dropped by the level boss.
- Can be cleared with a balanced group of 12 players at level 75.
- A manaburn group is very effective. It has been soloed by lv75 BLMs, but a good group of 2 BLMs can win with a good success rate.
- At 99BLM simple solo, had to skip Millenary Mossback but killed everything else in NW tower.
- At 85, proves to be an easy trio for PLD, RDM, BLM. More DoT is recommended, but not necessary if you skip some bosses.
- Duoable by THF/NIN and BRD/WHM at level 95.
- This entire area can be soloed by a 99 BST. I prefer FaithfulFalcorr but just about any pet will clear this with ease.
- The level bosses are weakened by killing all of the lesser mobs.
- Typical Ancient Beastcoin yield: 45-55 (without Treasure Hunter)
- It is not necessary to defeat the Floor Boss to progress to the next level. One of seven regular mobs will unlock the next portal.
- Reward for completion: Magenta Chip

- Enemies: Bardha x7 (Ghosts)
- Boss: Pluto (Doomed)
- Items chest has 2 Ancient Beastcoins and 0-1 AF+1 material (BLM, BLU, DRG, PLD, SAM, SCH, WAR, WHM). SAM seems like the most common drop this floor.
- Enemies: Mountain Buffalo x7 (Buffalo)
- Boss: Zlatorog (Ram)
- Items chest has 2 Ancient Beastcoins and 0-1 AF+1 material (BRD, COR, DRK, NIN, RNG, SMN, WHM ?).
- Enemies: Apollyon Scavenger x7 (Bugards)
- Boss: Millenary Mossback (Adamantoises)
- Items chest has an AF+1 material (BST, MNK, PLD, PUP, RDM, THF, ?), and 0-2 crafting items (Adaman Ore, Clot Plasma, Darksteel Sheet, Darksteel Ore, Oxblood, Light Steel, Rainbow Thread, Shell Powder) and approx 5 coins (not all the time).
- Enemies: Gorynich x5 (Wyverns)
- Boss: Cynoprosopi (Wyrm)
- Weaker version of Fafnir (About 15,000 HP), standing on his forefeet is recommended.
- Horrid Roar dispels one effect.
- Dragon Breath and Hurricane Wing do under 300 damage.
- Very high defense. Takes full damage from Thunder. As a fire based mob, it is very resistant to Blizzard. Aero works fine.
- If you fight near the Restore chest, you can open it mid-fight if you run into trouble.
- Very difficult unless you kill all the Wyverns first. Run along the west edge to avoid premature aggro.
- Killable by 1 BLM casting Gravity, kiting and nuking him. Gravity lands easily without Elemental Seal.
- Susceptible to Elemental Seal Sleep, Gravity and Bind.
- Items chest has 7-9 Ancient Beastcoins and 0-1 AF+1 materials (BLM, BLU, BRD, BST, COR, DRG, DRK, MNK, NIN, PUP, RDM, RNG, SAM, SMN, DNC, WHM).
- Enemies: Kronprinz Behemoth x3 (Behemoths)
- Boss: Kaiser Behemoth (Behemoth)
- Has alliance hate. Will target everybody until they're dead.
- Weaker version of King Behemoth (About 15,000 HP).
- He does not have additional effect: Stun on his melee attacks.
- Meteor does just under 1000 damage to everyone in a huge area. The target should run out of range so his casting fails.
- Meteor takes 5 seconds to cast, so it should be possible for melees to run out of range as long as they aren't stunned from Thunderbolt.
- Kick Out does up to 900 damage; only used if someone by his tail gets hate.
- Immune to Gravity, Stun and Sleep.
- Nearly all elements are good on the Kaiser Behemoth, however resistance builds up as multiple spells are cast on him.
- The usual strategy is to kite Kaiser around the center, pausing out of range when he tries to cast Meteor.
- Don't get too far ahead, or he won't ever try to cast Meteor and you won't be able to do any damage. Let him get to about 20' away when kiting, then run to more than 30' away when he starts to cast.
- Melee DD just chase him and hit him while he tries to cast Meteor. Try to hit him from the sides to avoid Kick Out.
- Melee damage and accuracy on him is very, very poor. Weapon Skill damage isn't too bad.
- BLMs chase him and nuke from a distance when he starts casting Meteor, then run away if he turns.
- If he's too far, you can also run the other way and nuke him. Depending on subjob, start casting just as he approaches.
- Two/more BLMs can kill Kaiser pretty easily. Have team A and team B setup. Team A only runs clockwise around the lake and team B only runs counter-clockwise around lake. Each BLM will start the nuke when in 21' range and will land before he leaves casting range. Rest MP should be ok in kiteing area since the BLM being chased should never stop running. It is possable to Cast a nuke and rest till he comes back around if you did not draw hate. With 2 blms should take 20 mins to kill with 3~4 can take 15. More BLMs can cause problems if to many BLMs cast at the same time.
- A BLM can solo Kaiser with the proper gear and tactics.
- SCH can 'One-shot' Kaiser by casting Kaustra and then kiting until he drops dead. Takes around 90 seconds for the spell to drain all his HP.
- You can check his current target with "/target <stnpc>; /assist <t>; /wait 1; /p Target: <t>" or "/assist <bt>;wait 1;/p <t> (Run Away)
- The final chest has 5 Ancient Beastcoins, 2-3 AF+1 materials (BLM, BLU, BRD, BST, COR, DNC, DRG, DRK, MNK, NIN, PLD, PUP, RDM, RNG, SAM, SCH, SMN, THF, WAR, WHM), the Magenta Chip, and a chance of a Metal Chip.
