Thornwind Cavern

You've come to send me to the Divine Realm? You can try.

  • Alternative title: Dark Wind Cave /검은바람동굴

  • Available Difficulties: Easy, Normal, Hard

The fallen Eight Masters was an elite force of martial artists who came together to protect the Earthen Realm from demonic forces and find the missing Four Guardians. They all came from different factions and clans, but managed to put their difference aside for their common goal.

One of these martial artists was Madun the Mistwalker, a Lyn from Brightstone Village and the first to overcome the Mark of the Black Rose. Madun started as a Summoner, and being one of the greatest clairvoyants of the Earthen Realm, the Divine Realm blessed him with an exceptional Familiar on par with a Sacred Beast: Uzume. Known as a patron guardian of the Realm's Familiars, Uzume's presence is said to calm the spirits of all beasts, be they great or small. Following Madun's passing, Uzume was inconsolable and refused to leave Madun's side to return to her home in the Divine Realm.

Uzume now resides in the Thornwind Cavern and the Dark Lord's Inner Conclave has found her. They stormed the cave, started fires, and shrouded the vale in a choking cloud of Dark Chi. With Uzume in a blinding rage and a burning hatred focused on you who she blames for Madun's demise, the responsibility falls on you to pacify the formidable Familiar and honour Master Madun's legacy.

Boss Encounters

Guardian Spirit Voltari


  • Health Points:

  • Condition Bars: x2

  • Enrage Timer:

Your first encounter is the Guardian Spirit, Voltari, who poisons challengers with Dark Chi and triggers explosions with Windcaps.

When combat begins, Voltari quickly lunges to an opponent to inflict a Dark Chi Bomb. Meanwhile, one of the Windcaps around the room will release a Blessed Energy.

Before the Dark Chi Bomb explodes, transmit the bomb to the correct Windcap and get ready to block Voltari's Rush near the exploding Windcap. If successful, Voltari will get dazed and receive damage from the Windcap, before repeating the mechanics.

Thornwind Guardian Uzume


  • Health Points:

  • Condition Bars: x2

  • Enrage Timer:

Uzume is Master Madun’s beloved Familiar who went into a blinding rage focused on the Hongmoon Hero after an attack from the Inner Conclave.

At certain HP intervals, Uzume will diminish the sight. Instead, Uzume will listen to your footsteps as she prepares to make four lunges in the center, reaching the entire arena to inflict a damage-over-time debuff to her challengers. Make sure to have a total of four players use their jump as far away as possible—that way, the boss will pick up on the sound and jump to you to only reach you with her lunge!

Next up, three of you will be targeted for one Dimensional Orb each, each Orb should be blocked by their target which in turn creates a stationary Dimensional Rift. Once all Orbs have been released, the first two who received their Orb can also expect a Phantom Smash your way, which also removes Dimensional Orbs if within reach. Phantom Smash's radius is large and you'll need to be nimble to direct the Smash properly to only remove two out of the three Dimensional Riftif all Rifts are closed, Uzume enters a Berserk Rage.

If successful, both you and Uzume will need to enter the remaining Dimensional Rift to get high above the arena. Use your Glide technique to slowly descend to the arena while Uzume conjures a toxic space on the arena's floor. Finally, perform a quick joint technique, either Knockdown or Stun depending on the colour of her Phantom Soul Barrier, to finish the phase.
