So, this boss has passive damage by using Plague debuff. It is very important to use supports in your team. You can use your regular damage dealer, then AOE-one and your healer and support. It’s nice team. Your support need to clean Plague debuff, and if you have one, use team cleanser as right.

If you haven’t Light characters, just pick another elemental guys, because Light and Dark are in connection by their elementality by strong-weak parameter, if you pick some Fire or Water or whatever, it’s ok.

First thing first, you need to clean minions wave. There are four Hulens and they don’t really hurt you, if your team is upgrated. After that go to the boss stage and do your best, control debuff activity and make damage.


Now, the elementality of your opponents here in this dungeon will be Dark. If we will think about elemental synergy, it will be useful to pick some Light characters. Dark element is weak for Light and you will bring more damage to the enemies (plus 50 percent). The bonus thing is a chance of 50% to avoid half of damage rate. So just use this advantage. This time just pay your attention to hero skills and level.

Best Heroes to pick for this Dungeon boss are: 

Basic team may contents of Zatlux, Hydrassea, William, Ztlin. You can use Covenants system in the game to pick Zatlux or Connor. Quite often, Hydrassea or Balberith drops out in Advanced summon and Rookie summon.

Another team can contain Hakrin, Siress, Blackhorn, Mary or Zatlux. Go to Altar and try to use synthesis to get Siress and Hakrin.

Of course to make a progress in the dungeon you should upgrade heroes. If you will look at hero’s skills, there are some levels of each ability. To maximize hero’s abilities go to the Altar and make promotion, use resources (jelly) to upgrade in Heroes menu and use hero’s copies to ascend and so on.

  • Legendary hero Evelyn Firstdawn. Great support, huge amount of Health, gives your team Defense and Attack, makes single attacks, casts Defense Down II and could use AOE.
  • Legendary hero Hydrissea. She is a tanky AOE-damage dealer. So she will be defeating minions and deal damage to boss. Her Speed Down buff working pretty good.
  • Legendary hero Blackhorn. He is a support with healing skills. Also applies Attack down to an enemy.
  • Legendary hero Siress. She can make damage to break a defense with Defense Pierce Up buff. Also she have a resist effect to negative effects of the enemy. And finally she deals damage with Attack Up effect.
