Xoph is located in Xoph’s Domain. This can only be accessed by using an Xoph’s Breachstone in your map device. This is obtained by combining 100 of Xoph’s Splinters.
When the player enters Xoph’s Domain, there will be a Breach Hand on the ground at the start. The main objective is to quickly kill everything in the map and not to run out of time. Once this hand is triggered, a countdown timer will begin and the Breach will start stretching throughout the entire map. The player must continuously kill the Breach monsters to extend the timer and uncover the boss arena. Rare enemies add the most time to the timer. If timer runs out, the expansion of the Breach will stop.
