  • NE Apollyon is a subsection of the Apollyon zone in the Limbus region.
  • It is reached via the Teleport-Mea crag entrance to Al'Taieu.
    • May also be reached via Homepoint #3 (Lumoria region, Al'Taieu map)
  • Enter Apollyon via the Swirling Vortex at K-6, NOT the Auroral Updraft you pass on the way.
  • Required items: KeyItem.pngCosmo-Cleanse, KeyItem.pngBlack Card
  • The first four floors have 3 time chests (5 minutes each), 1 item chest, and 1 restore chest.
    • The fifth floor has no time or restore chests.
    • You can open all chests as soon as you find them (so you can use your 1-hour on each floor).
    • The time and restore chests are always out. The items chest is dropped by a monster.
  • You must kill a particular enemy to open the vortex to the next level.
  • Heavily advised to have a balanced Item Level job that can deal both physical and magical damage.
    • If lucky with the gigas on the Fourth Floor, the floor can be cleared with any Item Level job, otherwise you either need to have a job that can deal both physical and magical damage or one party member that can deal physical damage and one party member that can deal magical damage in order to progress to the Fifth Floor.
