Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris Flashfang The Ancient Divine Beast Monolith Lodend Mountains

The first zone you get to explore in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is Lodend Mountains, but you’ll only be able to return here during chapter 3. Later, though, you’ll want to consider hunting elites so you can fight the Divine Beast there — Flashfang the Ancient. 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 (Lodend Mountains and Uetra Valley)

The Monolith in Lodend Mountains is off the beaten path, and, if I recall correctly, you’ll pass close to its location during one of the main quests in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. Anyway, here’s a quick refresher.

First, fast travel to Rest Stop by the Mountain Path and cut through the fields heading northwest.

You’ll find some crags beyond.

Jump on the rocks and you’ll be at an area called the Taboo Land of Abduction (ooh, creepy). You’ll find the Monolith and a nearby savepoint.

Anyway, your goal is to kill elites in Lodend Mountains and Uetra Valley. The former has four targets and the latter has three.

The final elite in Uetra Valley can be found in the Domain of Devils area. It’s likely that you’ve been here before as part of a main quest in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris or while you’re looking for golden treasure chests in Uetra Valley.

Sao Al Monodiv Lod 4a

This fight will be against Forestfin the Ravenous (level 48). This flying whale is kind of like Skyfish the Whirlpool.

Sao Al Monodiv Lod 4b

Eliminate this monster to get some rewards:

Sao Al Monodiv Lod 4c


Divine Beast: Flashfang the Ancient

Once you’re done with all seven kills, head back to the Monolith in Lodend Mountains and save your game.

Flashfang the Ancient is a level 85 (!!!) Divine Beast, and this gigantic spider has a few tricks up its, uh, sleeves? Leg sleeves? Pants? Eight-legged pants? Nevermind.

In addition to damaging pounces that can cut down your health by 50%, it’s also got Obliteration Ray. The boss will charge this attack and multiple lasers will shoot out of its back, hitting Kirito or any companion for massive damage.

It’s also got a Reflector Beam that fires in a straight line.

Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris Flashfang The Ancient Divine Beast Monolith Lodend Mountains 5d

Once Flashfang the Ancient’s spider senses are no longer tingling, you’ll get the Savage Squall (1H sword). It’s got +106 damage, +16 attack, +34 AGL, and +35 Sacred Arts damage. Sadly, it doesn’t have an associated perk.
