Gates of Darkness (S3)

In the season 3 version of Gates of Darkness, the Dark Bone Dragon is no longer there. Instead, there will be 2 towers, one for your team and one for the demons. Monsters will spawn from the demon gate and now includes 3 boss monsters. You can also summon monsters from your tower. There is however only Normal Mode for this Revamp.


Entering The Dungeons

The orb of darkness that will bring you to the field

In any time of the day, after defeating a boss of any dungeon from Feita onwards, there will be a random chance where an orb of darkness will appear, sucking in your party into the Gates of Darkness field.
After the 25/4/2013 patch, when the orb of darkness is broken, there will be a pop up, asking you if you want to continue on into the Gates of Darkness as shown below. If you press yes, only those who pressed yes will go into Gates of Darkness. People who choose no will be separated from the party. You are only given 3 seconds to decide. Failing to press anything will result in you pressing yes by default.

During KR time (GMT +9:00):

  • 13:00 to 14:00
  • 19:30 to 20:30
  • 22:00 to 23:00
    • The chance to enter the Gates of Darkness field will be increase to about 90 - 100%. (If you play party or play a dungeon with difference of 10 levels)


Objective

TowerHP.png
Your objective of the new Gates of Darkness is to break down the demon's Tower. The demon's Tower have a lifespan of 20 Health bars and the structure of the Tower will break down after every 7 bars of Health taken away. The stage is completed with the Tower is totally destroyed.
NOTE THAT WHEN YOU REACH A CERTAIN RANGE NEAR THE DEMON TOWER, YOU WILL RECEIVE A SCYTHE DEBUFF WHICH WILL RAPIDLY DEPLETE YOUR HP AND MP. YOUR CHARACTER WILL BE COVERED IN PURPLE(Similar to Curse debuff) WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE SCYTHE DEBUFF. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO STAY AWAY FROM THE DEMON TOWER UNTIL THE LAST BOSS.

Gameplay

A picture of the field that you will be fighting in


In this field, you are unable to use your own potions and food. Instead, it will be replaced with monster summoning icons.
As in the picture shown,

  • Buttons: 1, 2, and 3 will summon basic units from your base. The monsters have 3 stages and will change into a higher level set once a new ally boss is spawned.
    (Example: Lv1 Boss will spawn Lv1 monsters set. When Lv2 boss is spawned, the set will change to the Lv2 monsters set. The same applies to Lv3 monsters.) All three buttons share the same cooldown of 15 seconds, so choose the units that fit the situation at hand.
  • Button 4 can be one of two things, depending on your gear. If you are not wearing a(n Ancient) Wyvern's Claw it will be a limitless supply of Advanced Mana Potions (Recover 150 MP, cooldown 60 seconds, increased MP recovery based on the guild skill Alchemy Specialist or the passive skill Metabolism Boost). If you are wearing one of the Claws, it will be a special monster that is much stronger than the regular units available from buttons 1, 2, and 3. This monster also has a cooldown of 60 seconds.


After some time into the game, your Tower will also summon some boss monsters to aid you in battle. Likewise, the demon's Tower will also spawn regular and boss monsters.
In case your party is incomplete, meaning only having 1/2/3 people in the party, Epic NPC's will spawn to aid you against the demons.


Bosses

For bosses there are 3 types of bosses: Lv1, Lv2 and Lv3.
The sequence the bosses will spawn is after a Lv1 boss is defeated, a random Lv2 boss will spawn from the tower. This applies to both allies and demons bosses.
Each Lv has a different new attack that is different from regular dungeon bosses.
When your character is near allies bosses, you will be able to regenerate HP. (Roughly 1% per second)

Differences between NA and KR

When Season 3 of Gates of Darkness is released in NA server, there are a few noticeable differences from that of KR server, besides the name changes of Potions and Bosses.

Dungeon Entrance

Unlike KR, NA does not have a certain time period where the chances of the entering the dungeon will increase. The chances of the Portal to appear will be the same, regardless of what time or day you are playing on.

Server-wide Debuff

Unlike KR, there will be no consequences for not completing this dungeon for a certain amount of times.

Darkness Core

Unlike KR, all new Wyvern Accessories and Elixirs cannot be crafted at the Alchemist or Accessory merchants. They can only be obtained from boxes called Darkness Core at a random chance. Due to the removal of the crafting service of GoD-related items, the special drops can no longer be obtained in this dungeon. Darkness Cores can be obtained by completing the dungeon or purchasing them from other players.

Trivia

  • As a lot of monster will be spawned in the stage, you may experience massive lag while playing if your computer can't support it.
    • Though S2 GoD Very Hard is more lag inducing than it.
  • Just like the old seasons of Gates of Darkness, having good equipment isn't required because your character will be attenuate to when you are Lv1 and having no equipment.
    • However, having higher Damage modifiers and Damage Reduction stats can help in this dungeon.
  • When the server fails to defend the El Crystal, even if you were offline when the raid completed, all players will receive a debuff which increases player's equipments repair fee by 50% until next GoD. The debuff remains even if you relog. (Currently for KR only)
