Video of the instance here. by me!
Read guide to the instance here. by Neodaystar.


The instance is incredibly fun! I highly recommend trying it out as soon as you're able to, plus you get a shot at some cards by making packs using the reward. Prepare to die, though.


Just a few notes for those playing Venomancers or using Venomancers for the instance:

- Most bosses have an HP buff and an Ironheart-icon buff. You have to purge them off.

- Don't bother with pets too much, they'll mostly die from traps, AOEs and whatnot. If you can keep them alive go for it, if you spend too much time taking care of them better stow them.

- If you have a Harpy, use it at the Five Kings part. It's going to help a lot especially if the squad lacks magic DD (physical immune boss).

- Bosses are immune to HP debuffs, in other words Sage Soul Degeneration doesn't work (the HP debuff part of it that is).

- Shriek pet skill is useful at the Succubus boss (warns you in big letters to interrupt her). Level 5 of said skill is 100% chance to interrupt.

- Last boss will go nuts towards the end but the system warns you and then shouts I'M HYSTERICAL on your screen. That's your cue to purge. It's very very important to purge. Watch for the Quicken buff (APS) to appear (don't accidentally purge too soon).

- After you kiss the frog make sure to wash properly. Disgusting!

    I saw that you did not summon the pet from the beginning. What is the reason (other than the traps actually)?

    Pets are okay but mostly in normal mode. The advanced mode bosses have strong AoEs, the third boss has a strong DoT that pretty much 1-shots you if you don't purify so the pet stands no chance. The second boss spawns water pools that deal a lot of damage if you don't avoid them etc.

    I'll probably try to use pets more the better I learn the instance though.

    Pets are helpful to a point. They're a pain to keep alive through the AOE's, but a herc taking aggro can be a good distraction if a large part of your squad has wiped and is running back. I generally start with my nix using natural synergy to front load all its damage before it is one-shot b:chuckle

    I have feeling the pet ignore those water polls at the water boss. Well, whole squad running away from the water spots, means that boss will move and pet will follow and get out of the water spots as well... But my nix have yet not died due to them even once those 3 times I did the instance, so yea...

    The only place where my harpy dies is at the very last boss. It seems the game counts the pets as having full chi always, so when they receive more, they instantly die. That's the only place in the whole instance where I stow my pet.

    The video was amazing! I feel that this particular dungeon is a step forward in many ways, for its mechanics and overall feel. Definitely looking forward to experiencing it as well!
    It is really, really nice that for this Venomancers will always be welcomed.

    HTTYD soundtrack + the wash after kissing part... Pure genius. <3

    I'm not sage myself so I can't be 100% sure, but a sage veno I was squadded with kept overwriting my amp with her sage soul degen, even though it seemed as if nothing was happening. Quite annoying ._.;

    I can confirm that the HP debuff doesn't work there, I just completely forgot to mention it previously (or rather update the post when I found out).

    Venomancers need to pay more attention to this, especially purging. I've seen a couple who didn't purge even after I whispered them to do so.

    I want to add something, sherik pet skill is pretty useful at the boss of the healing spell. I case u don't have a player that can interrupt...lvl5 is 100% success so it wont hurt if done just in case.

    if there is no barb or the barb is weak to hold arrgo from dds
    A trick a veno can do in there:
    At the toad....herc can keep arrgo fine and live till the "barb" atk...when the herc dies just rez and resummon...the only trick is having a suitable herc...mine's mood is confident so it got 3arrgo skills...roar would help too but mine got bless already.
    sometimes the atk is faster than normal in such case 2venos are needed.

    Today I did a run without a cleric....but we were 9 +12s so the whole run was 15min.

    Working fine for me. Are you sure it's not a region issue?

    It appears to be fine for me too..I mean it is there on my list so it sounds like a regional issue...probably because of the OST I used >.>;
