    • This item chest will contain up to five Ancient Beastcoins, up to two crafting items, and possibly a single item for artifact armor upgrade.

  • Harden Shell: Self target Defense Boost (Effect can be dispelled).

  • Tortoise Song: AoE Dispel effect (Circle of effect originates from mob).

Historical Information

The word millenary is in reference to the word millenium, and mossback is in reference to a very old turtle or tortoise that has allowed moss and algae to grow on their shells. As such, a millenary mossback would be a thousand year old tortoise, which in legend is said to be able to speak with a human tongue and foretell the future.

Correct, this is Limbus. Specifically Apollyon NW.

He is the boss for the third floor. My limbus group uses standard Genbu tactics to fight him. He will use Invincible. Pull and fight him on top of the HP/MP/2hr chest to restore all of your abilities instantly and he's not too hard. In fact, you shouldn't even need to pop the chest during the battle, but it's nice in case. We've never fought Adamantoise/Aspid, so I can't really compare.

The item chest will pop after defeating him. You can advance to the next floor without fighting him, however.

Judging from the background... I'm thinking Limbus.
