Gameplay Details

1) The Culling of the Worms: Gathering (Challenge 1)

➥ Start The Culling of the Worms: Proposal quest (the first challenge) by teleporting to Aaru Village and talking to the anxious researcher ‘Shriya.’ She will ask you to look and save Vinayak in the desert with Wenuts running around.

Divine Benediction deals 20722 Physical DMG

➥ Once you found him (just follow the quest navigation), you can start the challenge. During every challenge, there will be some Four-Leaf Sigils that have Diving Benedictions on them. In other words, use the Sigils to get the buff, then use Plunging Attacks to create shockwaves to deal Physical DMG to nearby opponents. Of course, if you don’t want to use the buff, that’s also okay.

➥ The challenge here is to collect 3 components by defeating a group of monsters near the said component within the time limit. Just like the good ol’ combat events.
➥ Each challenge has its own Bonus Effect, and in the first challenge, DMG dealt by all party members using catalyst increased by 20%.

2) The Culling of the Worms: Testing (Challenge 2)

➥ Change the in-game time to the next day from 8:00 – 12:00 to start the next challenge. Then, just follow the quest navigation to reach the challenge’s location.

➥ This time, there is a new mechanism. In the current challenge, you need to set up 3 charging devices to activate the Wenutslayer Cannon. However, since it requires a stable operating environment, you must defeat all opponents in various areas for the machines to be assembled. In addition, this time the Deviant Wenut can suddenly attack from the underground and disturb your combat time with the mobs.
➥ Remember that each challenge has its own Bonus Effect? In this second challenge, all Elemental DMG dealt by all party members’ Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks increased by 20%.

3) The Culling of the Worms: Body (Challenge 3)

➥ Change the in-game time to the next day from 8:00 – 12:00 to start the next challenge. Then, just follow the quest navigation to reach the challenge’s location. Tips: Use the FOUR-LEAF SIGILS near the teleport waypoint. Don’t waste your time by running the whole time.

➥ The Deviant Wenut will sometimes enter a berserk state, in which they will keep their distance and launch long-range attacks. You can’t attack them! What you need to do is lure the Wenut to aim their attacks at the rocks nearby to destroy them. Then, you can obtain elemental energy.

➥ After you completed protecting the charging device and the Wenutslayer Cannon is fully charged, you can use it to attack the Wenut. No need to do anything, just approach the cannon and you’re good to go.

4) The Culling of the Worms: Conclusion (Challenge 4)

➥ Change the in-game time to the next day from 8:00 – 12:00 to start the next challenge. Then, just follow the quest navigation to reach the challenge’s location. Tips: Use the FOUR-LEAF SIGILS near the teleport waypoint. Don’t waste your time by running the whole time.

➥ Nothing new, exactly the same as challenge 3. Defeat enemies > Avoid Wenut from underground > Lure its attacks to nearby rocks > Use Wenutslayer Cannon.

5) The Culling of the Worms: Ending (Challenge 5)

➥ Change the in-game time to the next day from 8:00 – 12:00 to start the next challenge. Then, just teleport to the waypoint near the quest navigation. This time, you will encounter a battle mode similar to all challenges from 1 to 4.

➥ During the whole challenge, your job is solely to protect the Charging Device equals defeating all enemies and dodging Wenut’s long-ranged attacks. There are a lot of waves here and most of them spawn far from each other so be sure to choose party members you are comfortable using in a long battle.

➥ After the Wenutslayer Cannon is ready to fire, you use the Four-Leaf Sigils to teleport to the cannon and fire it. You need to do this 3 times because the number of Wenut you must defeat is 3.
