The Monolith in Sarole Mountains summons a Divine Beast known as Bloomcrown the Temptress, another endgame challenge in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. Assuming you already know the basics about Monoliths and summoning Divine Beasts, let’s get started with our hunt.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris – Monolith and elites (Sarole Mountains and Lockiss Rocks)
The Monolith in Sarole Mountains can be found close to the Cave Apex savepoint. Just follow the sloping path downwards and you’ll see a small opening.
Watch out because there are level 70+ mobs here.
The Monolith is at the grove. We need to eliminate elites in Sarole Mountains and Lockiss Rocks.
Note: This grove is a great place to farm dyes for cosmetic purposes.
Sarole Mountains #1
Here’s a map of Sarole Mountains:
Go to the Bonfire savepoint and look southwest. A level 51 Nightrobe Lynx is here.
Sarole Mountains #2
Fast travel to Nerta Caves and head northwest. Fight the level 71 Scorpion General with the help of random wayfarers.
Sarole Mountains #3
From here, go northeast through the bamboo forest where you found the Golden Shoot in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris‘ fourth chapter.
The pit has an enemy called Soulstern the Demolisher (level 72).
Lockiss Rocks #1
Here’s a map of Lockiss Rocks:
Go to Lockiss Rocks’ northern savepoint and climb up the nearby rock formation.
Eliminate Duskvine the Spectral (level 38) for its rewards:
Note: This grove, likewise, is another good place to farm for cosmetic dyes.
Lockiss Rocks #2
From there, go southwest to fight a Darkness Spider (level 52); some wayfarers might help.
Lockiss Rocks #3
Fast travel to the Noble Estate. Look southwest from the savepoint and check out the rocky hill nearby.
Use Tailwind to get up top and fight Earthplod the Watcher (level 42).
Lockiss Rocks #4
The last elite is to the southeast near the Deserted Village savepoint. It’s a Norlan Bird (level 57).
Divine Beast: Bloomcrown the Temptress
Go back to the Sarole Mountains Monolith and be ready for Bloomcrown the Temptress, a level 83 Divine Beast.
Bloomcrown the Temptress also tends to apply status effects so make sure Kirito (or Asuna if she’s your dedicated healer) can keep everyone in tip-top shape.
Bloomcrown the Temptress also loves to use Death Seed Strike — aka. exploding seeds.
It’s also got a chomping attack if you’re in melee range.
Once this Divine Beast has wilted, you’ll obtain the Cactus Bludgeon. This mace has +144 damage, +15 STR, +28 DEX, +2 Critical, and the “Heavenly Aegis” perk. This allows the team to temporarily nullify projectiles and physical damage as well as boost HP regen by 10%. Basically, it turns everyone into tanks. How cool is that?
