Earlier this week, NCSoft announced that the upcoming endgame dungeon for Blade & Soul, Desolate Tomb, would be released on August 24th, but didn’t provide any additional details. Thankfully, more information has been revealed now, including the dungeon’s bosses and rewards.
The first boss is a force master debonair named Jang Ghibu. He uses both fire and ice attacks to create a harmonious, yet destructive, combination to overwhelm any intruders. He’s accompanied by his two wives who are both Destroyers. Defeating Jang Ghibu and his wives will grant further access to the Desolate Tomb.
The next boss is the sentinel automaton, Iron Juggernaut. With his onslaught of physical projectiles, players must actively dodge his attacks to stay alive. Iron Juggernaut will also summon guards to aid him in battle. The guards either heal the Juggernaut, or help provide extra DPS. Players strong enough to overcome the Juggernaut’s wrath will be rewarded with access to the final boss.
The final encounter is the one and only Lord of the Flame. The Lord of the Flame is a behemoth that controls “elemental fire, cinder, and lava to knock back, burn, and decimate” all foolish adventurers that dare challenge him. Team communication and coordination is essential to success. Don’t expect to defeat the Lord of the Flame without proper strategies.
Defeating the Lord of the Flame and completing the Desolate Tomb dungeon will award players with powerful equipment, in addition to the Oblivion costume and Enraged adornment.
Some of the other potential rewards are: upgrade materials for weapons and accessories, a new Soul Shield, and Evolution items for a brand new tier of accessories.
