Welcome back to the Kingdom of Hercules, and just in time! Hercules is missing along with all or your items and treasures. Even the statue is missing from the town center! The Blacksmith needs your help right away!

Filling your armory![edit | edit source]

Your powerful weapons and loot are gone. Track down the evil behind this, regain your items and get to the root of the mystery behind Hercules' disappearance.

Game Rules[edit | edit source]

The Shadows Over Hercopolis is a Dungeon instance for 3 players. Obtain quests from the Town Progress screen and begin your search for Hercules and your missing loot!

  • 3 Players
  • Start the game at level 20
  • Your armory of items will initially be empty.

Armory[edit | edit source]

When you first enter the Dungeon you will not have any items in your Armory. As you play through and break open chests guarded by monsters and Bosses, you will obtain new loot.

  • Break open Chests and kill bosses to obtain new loot.
  • Your loot will stay with you through each Dungeon run!
  • You can equip any item you want but are still restricted to 6 items in total!

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

There are three difficulty levels and you can only unlock and play Hard mode once you have completed all the quests for the Church Sector. Unlocking Nightmare requires defeating Loki!

  • Reach graveyard checkpoints for teammates to respawn.
  • Be careful of dying! The more you die in one run, the harder the dungeon will be.
  • Teammates will respawn after finishing combat.
  • If all members of a party are down at the same time the match ends!
  • Defeat all the bosses and Victory is yours, and all the shiny loot too!
