    While Medusa had her own "army", into Cursed Dragon & Bloody Witch Queen, Selupan thought he's strong enough alone, but the past has proven him wrong.
    Learning from his own mistakes, he has built a new army of himself, and its time has come...

    World Bosses - They're here!

    • Every Tuesday, Thursday at 21:50 and Saturday at 14:40, the new Selupan's Minions (Dark Giant, Dark Mammoth & Dark Iron Knight) will invade our world.
    • The duration of the invasion is 21 minutes.
    • The 1st time when the invasion is announced, an Anomaly will hit our server.
    • The Anomaly is created by World Bosses.
    • While Anomaly is up, every 15 seconds 2 random players (any player, no matter what he is doing) from sub-server 1 (non-gens) and 1 random player (any player, no matter what he is doing) from sub-server 2 (gens) will be affected by either Cold Aura (10 seconds of Ice that cannot be dispelled) or Disease (5 seconds of Stun).
    • Entire server must team up in a race versus time to defeat all 3 World Bosses before the time runs out in order to clear the Anomaly.
    • If all 3 bosses are defeated before they survive (before the time is up), the Anomaly will end when the invasion also ends, and ENTIRE SERVER gets +30% bonus zen gained (multiplicative) until the next World Bosses Invasion.
    • If any of the world bosses do survive, then the Anomaly will continue to hunt our server for the next 24 hours, and the zen bonus gained is removed.
    • When the World Bosses do spawn, an Old Guard is spawned near every online player from server (with few exceptions like events zone / duel arena, etc.).
    • Apart from asking for your help, they will also offer you a free Teleport to one of the World Bosses zone, if you click them.
    • They can teleport you only to a World Boss from your current sub-server (non-gens maps Guards can teleport you to non-gens bosses and gens maps Guards can teleport you to gens map boss).
    • They stay only 15 seconds near you, then they can be found in safe-zones of Lorencia, Noria, Devias, Elbeland, Aida, Tarkan and in Icarus at warp.
    • During every invasion, each character can use the Teleport for unlimited times on non-gens server (for Dark Mammoth & Dark Iron Knight) and for 2 times on gens server (for Dark Giant), by clicking either the initially spawned guard, or the ones from safe-zones / icarus warp.
    • They can teleport you only to a location where a World Boss is alive, from your sub-server.
    • Guards from Lorencia, Noria, Devias & Elbeland safe-zones will teleport you to a random World Boss location, where the boss is alive, from your sub-server.
    • The guard from Aida will teleport you to Dark Mammoth's location.
    • The guard from Tarkan will teleport you to Dark Giant's location.
    • The guard from Icarus will teleport you to Dark Iron Knight's location.
    • Summon (DL) is disabled in the World Bosses maps during the invasion.
    • If you relog / disconnect in the bosses 16x16 range, you'll be moved on the safe-zone when you reconnect.
    • You can have only 1 Account per IP in the World Bosses 6x6 range / 8x8 range / 10x10 range. If you have 2 then the 2nd one will be moved in Lorencia.
      • How does it work? The first character on your IP that enters the boss range will be considered the valid one, any other characters on IP will be moved.

    World Bosses

    • Dark Giant - Gens Map World Boss.
      • He will spawn in Tarkan2 - 95x 205y.
      • Basics: He has melee range, a medium HP pool, a very high damage, a very high ASR and a very low attack speed.
      • Special mechanic: Guard's Blessings - The gens family with lower number of total people (based on TOP500 Characters with Gens) receive buffs as following:
        • If the lower Gens Family percent is between 41% and 50% (Example: 50-59% Duprian - 50-41% Varnert):
          • No buffs.
        • If the lower Gens Family percent is between 33% and 40% (Example: 60-67% Duprian - 40-33% Varnert):
          • 1. Immunity to damage for 3 seconds every 12 seconds.
          • 2. Permanent Damage Buff with a value equal to an Energy Elf with 5000 ENE (at CS).
        • If the lower Gens Family percent is between 25% and 32% (Example: 68-75% Duprian - 32-25% Varnert):
          • 1. Immunity to damage for 4 seconds every 12 seconds.
          • 2. Permanent Damage Buff with a value equal to an Energy Elf with 7500 ENE (at CS).
        • If the lower Gens Family percent is between 0% and 24% (Example: 76-100% Duprian - 24-0% Varnert):
          • 1. Immunity to damage for 5 seconds every 12 seconds.
          • 2. Permanent Damage Buff with a value equal to an Energy Elf with 10000 ENE (at CS).
        • Note: This buffs are only gained in Tarkan and only while the Dark Giant is alive.
      • Signature mechanic: Doomsday - Dark Giant can only be attacked when there are only players from one Gens Family alive in his 8x8 range, else he is immune to damage.
      • Extra mechanic: Cold Aura - everyone in his 8x8 range is permanently iced (undispellabe).
      • Common mechanic: Selupan's Wrath - Players that enter at least once in 8x8 range of the Dark Giant will be affected by Selupan's Wrath. Affected players can't use items (especially Potions) while the Dark Giant is alive. Affected players can get rid of the debuff only by: dying, relogging, moving to another sub-server or defeating the boss.
        • Note: Selupan's Wrath is inactive when there are players alive from both Gens Famillies in his 8x8 range (during PvP time).
      • Dark Giant has a maximum duration of 16 minutes, after he spawns.
      • Special Reward: While Doomsday is inactive, the Gens Family that is alone in the boss range will earn 1 point per second.
      • At the end of the fight, the winner family is the one with most points & the Special Reward is given to a random player from the winner Family.
        • Note: Special Reward is given only to characters that spent at least 20% of the duration of the Boss in his 8x8 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), special reward is given only to characters that spent at least 180 seconds in the Boss 8x8 range.
      • Participation Reward: All participants get participation reward, as long as they are online and on Tarkan (anywhere), when the Dark Giant is defeated.
        • Note: Participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 20% of the duration of the Boss in his 8x8 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 180 seconds in the Boss 8x8 range.
             
    • Dark Mammoth - Non-PvP Map World Boss.
      • He will spawn in Aida2 - 50x 120y.
      • While he is alive, Aida is transformed into a FULL NON-PVP MAP (even for Mercenaries / PKers).
      • Basics: He has high range, a very high HP pool, a medium damage, a very high ASR and a medium attack speed. He also has push-back + mini-stun chance on his attacks.
      • Basics: AoE immunity - in the Dark Mammoth's 20x20 range, the full AoE skills are blocked: Evil Spirits, Gigantic Storm, Fire Burst, Lightning Shock, Rageful Blow, Dragon Lore.
      • Special mechanic: Hard to Forget - In order for the Dark Mammoth to be summoned, there's a mini invasion of his own minions - 12 Giant Mammoths are spawned as following:
        • 2 in Lorencia.
        • 2 in Noria.
        • 2 in Elbeland (1-3).
        • 2 in Devias (1-4).
        • 2 in Lost Tower (1-7).
        • 2 in Dungeon (1-3).
          • The Dark Mammoth will be summoned only when all 12 Giant Mammoths are killed.
      • Signature mechanic: Carnage - Every 60 seconds, Dark Mammoth does spawn his minions again (12), in his 10x10 range this time, and he gets immunity to damage until all his minions are killed.
        • Note: If the previous minions aren't killed before the next Carnage, they will automatically despawn and the new ones will be summoned.
        • Note2: Minions have push-back chance on their attacks.
      • Extra mechanic: Enrage - Every 22 seconds he gets a big amount of extra damage for 5 seconds.
      • Common mechanic: Selupan's Wrath - Players that enter at least once in 10x10 range of the Dark Mammoth will be affected by Selupan's Wrath. Affected players can't use items (especially Potions) while the Dark Mammoth is alive. Affected players can get rid of the debuff only by: dying, relogging, moving to another sub-server or defeating the boss.
        • Note: Selupan's Wrath is permanently active.
      • Dark Mammoth has a maximum duration of 20 minutes, starting from the moment his minions do spawn.
        • Note: The duration starts the moment his minions are spawned, so the faster you kill the minions, the faster he is summoned, the more time you have for the actual boss.
      • Special Reward: Delivered to 1 random player from one of the participants that killed at least 1 of the boss minions before he spawned (mini invasion), as long as they are online and in Aida (anywhere), when the Dark Mammoth is defeated.
        • Note: While killing more than 1 minion doesn't directly raise your chances to get the Special Reward, it does indirectly raise them by having less eligible characters for the reward.
        • Note2: Special Reward can be gained only if the selected character spent at least 60% of the duration of the Boss (after he spawned) in his 10x10 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), special reward is given only to characters that spent at least 540 seconds in the Boss 10x10 range.
      • Participation Reward: All participants get participation reward, as long as they are online and in Aida (anywhere), when the Dark Mammoth is defeated.
        • Note: Participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 60% of the duration of the Boss (after he spawned) in his 10x10 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 540 seconds in the Boss 12x12 range.
             
    • Dark Iron Knight - PvP Map World Boss.
      • He will spawn in Icarus - 40x 225y.
      • While he is alive, Icarus is transformed into a FULL PVP MAP (free PK, anyone can be attacked).
      • Basics: He has medium range, a high HP pool, a low damage, a high ASR and a high attack speed. He also has a stun chance on his attacks.
      • Special mechanic: Disease - Every 22 seconds, he puts Disease on 2 random players from his 6x6 range. The players that get it will be stunned for 10 seconds.
        • Note: Disease is being placed only on players that are outside of his 3x3 range but still in his 6x6 range (basically, players in melee range can't get it directly).
        • Note2: If there aren't at least 5 eligible range targets at the moment of the Disease, then anyone can get the Disease (including those in melee range).
      • Signature mechanic: Iron Shield - Every 60 seconds, Dark Iron Knight gets Iron Shield, reducing 60% of the damage taken. For every PvP kill during Iron Shield (and in the boss 6x6 range), the Iron Shield reduction is decreased by 6%, up to 0%. If it gets to 0%, then the Iron Shield is purged.
        • Note: While Iron Shield is inactive / purged, PvP is disabled in his 6x6 range (and only in his 6x6 range, rest of map is still FULL PVP).
      • Extra mechanic: Anyone from the 2x2 range of the players that got the Disease (but still in the 6x6 range of the boss) will also get the Disease and will be stunned as well, for 10 seconds.
      • Common mechanic: Selupan's Wrath - Players that enter at least once in 6x6 range of the Dark Iron Knight will be affected by Selupan's Wrath. Affected players can't use items (especially Potions) while the Dark Iron Knight is alive. Affected players can get rid of the debuff only by: dying, relogging, moving to another sub-server or defeating the boss.
        • Note: Selupan's Wrath is inactive while Iron Shield is up and not purged (during PvP time).
      • Dark Iron Knight has a maximum duration of 18 minutes.
      • Special Reward: Delivered to 1 random player from one of the participants that killed at least 3 players in the boss 6x6 range (during Iron Shield), as long as they are online and on Icarus (anywhere) or Devias (anywhere) when the Dark Iron Knight is defeated.
        • Note: While killing more than 3 players doesn't directly raise your chances to get the Special Reward, it may indirectly raise them by maybe having less eligible characters for the reward.
        • Note2: Special Reward can be gained only if the selected character spent at least 50% of the duration of the Boss in his 6x6 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), special reward is given only to characters that spent at least 540 seconds in the Boss 6x6 range.
      • Participation Reward: All participants get participation reward, as long as they are online and on Icarus (anywhere) or Devias (anywhere), when the Dark Iron Knight is defeated.
        • Note: Participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 60% of the duration of the Boss in his 6x6 range.
          • Example: If boss dies after 900 seconds (15 minutes), participation reward is given only to characters that spent at least 540 seconds in the Boss 6x6 range.
             
    • Dark Iron Knight (PvP Map) & Dark Mammoth (Non-PvP Map) bosses do also share the Soul Link mechanic:
      • Soul Link: Dark Mammoth's soul is linked to Dark Iron Knight's soul.
        • When Dark Iron Knight dies, Dark Mammoth is getting permanent Iron Shield, absorbing 35% of the damage (that can't be reduced) for the rest of its duration.
        • When Dark Mammoth dies, Dark Iron Knight is getting permanent Enrage, increasing its damage by 150% for the rest of its duration.

    Final notes

    Last 10 days were a real marathon, and after countless of hours I'm here, ready to deliver you a mini-project that I had a lot of fun working on and I really hope you'll enjoy it and every single detail that was carefully thought and put together :)
    Even if the invasion was intensively tested in terms of mechanics, some bugs may happen, as well as tweaks to the current values, both based on your incoming feedback.
    Keep in mind that the bosses are designed for server level fight, not for parties/guilds. So yea, expect insane values!

    P.S. Special Reward wasn't active on today's invasion (as it was just a surprise-invasion), only the participation reward was, but it will be active starting from Saturday.

    • Giant Mammoths HP nerfed with 60%.
      • This will make sure the Dark Mammoth is both spawning faster & it will be also easier to purge the Carnage (but well, you can't purge Carnage in 5 people).
    • All bosses got a 20% HP nerf.
    • Dark Giant duration raised to 18 minutes as well, from 16.

    I'll share you few tips that should help you manage this fight better:
    1. The hardest boss is by far the Dark Mammoth. It must be spawned as fast as possible and attacked in groups of many people (not 1 by one, else you'll just die).
    2. The second boss in difficulty is the Dark Iron Knight. It is not that hard, but you're playing it wrong, losing a lot of DPS on it:
    Ideally, you want melee characters to immobilize it in a centered area from where he can't move unless melees dies.
    In this way, range will have enough space to spread from others so not everyone is getting the disease (like it is happening now).
    You're currently putting it in a corner and losing 50% of the area where characters can stay, which results in 80% of players getting all diseases => a lot of DPS loss.
    Iron Shield - must be purged as fast as possible so you're not losing any DPS on the boss. Ignoring it or not purging it fast enough means a lot of DPS loss.
    The best targets to kill during Iron Shield are clearly the ones that have the disease, because their DPS is already lost because of the stun.
    Play it smarter, respect the mechanics and you can kill it in a pretty fast way.
    3. Dark Giant is the easiest boss from all 3, and it's just a gens family fight - DPS race, but you need to get the people from your own family into the fight, you won't clear the boss with only 10-12 characters from the same family.

    They may have been over tuned a little before this tweaks, but still, you did way better when you didn't know anything about them (killed 2 bosses). This time Dark Giant survived with 46% HP, Dark Iron Knight with 41% HP and Dark Mammoth wasn't touched, while last time you managed to kill 2/3 in time.

    Yes, it is a challenge, but this is the fun part, you must all work together and split correctly between the bosses, respect the mechanics and you'll manage to win, you must just get used to the fight.
