Special Event Monster : A turtle born from the scorching lava. Five levels available.
Lava turtles appear on the map as part of a special event called 'Challenge Lava Turtles'. This event usually lasts for about a week and comes with the descriptor - The mysterious Lava Turtles are ravaging the land. Kill the Lava Turtles to get treasure chest rewards!.
There are 5 levels of Lava Turtle with increasing power and rewards. These monsters are an excellent source of resources.
* Level 1 turtles - These guys have a 12.4M power level and are classified as a medium difficulty boss monster. It will cost 20 stamina to attack them and they are useful for assisting with growth.
Level 2 turtles - These have 22.3M power, also with a medium difficulty rating and will use 30 stamina. The rewards are 400K of each resource, plus another 100K of stone and ore in the medium lava turtle chest (along with healing speed-ups). As with level 1, there is also the probability of spiritual beast experience, refining stones and artwork fragment chest.
* To kill them efficiently, you will need 500,000 T11 mounted troops with your best mounted general. Wounded numbers will depend upon your tech, training and debuff research for mounted troops. Less wounded (potentially zero) will be obtained from 350,000 T12 mounted.
I will hold off on the level 3 and 4 turtles, as we really aren't ready for them, but I would really encourage everyone with T10's to give LVL 1's a try and let us get our rally counts up. Even little bosses like my Centaurs can be can give everyone an opportunity to get experience without wounding costs.
