Notes

The monsters in this zone scale to the player's stats as follows, and gain special abilities based on the difficulty of the telegram:

Monster Attack (ML) Defense HP Other
Easy telegrams Mox+5+ML, 60 minimum Mus+5+ML, 60 minimum Def * 0.75
Moderate telegrams Mox+25+ML, ? minimum Mus+25+ML, ? minimum Def * 0.75
Hard telegrams Mox+50+ML, 180 minimum Mus+50+ML, 180 minimum Def * 0.75 50% delevel resistance

Only a subset of the above monsters show up in any given telegram. Fighting monsters from the subset, even from copies (which will also gain the appropriate abilities), will progress the quest. Each non-combat advances to the next set of monsters as shown in this table. Along with the 2nd continuation you receive an interim reward:
