    Hi,

    I finished the first task... survive to the Crypt. Now it says survive to the Laboratory... do i REALLY have to fight through the crypt every time??? Or is there a way to go straight to the Laboratory fights... it just takes some time and I don't see the point in finishing one Quest and having to do it all over again just to go to the next one.

    Besides there is a door with a trap door which would lead directly to the Laboratory fights but it's closed after you leave...

    Can someone help with some info?


    Thanks a lot.
    Steve

    The purpose of that dungeon is to see how far you can get. It's a survival challenge.

    When you enter and begin you are timed in each room to kill each monster in each room. The task is not completed until you finish the last room and kill all the Liches in that room. If you fail to completely kill each monster in each room you must begin again and complete them in the time allowed and you must survive each part. That is the goal....survive and finish all in the time allowed.

    This is much better with a group. Add Margaritte McLean as a friend in game, and we can put something together, if you like. I haven't been all the way to the end in a while, could be fun!

    This is a great answer. :)

    Not a good answer. Just saying.

    It was however, my answer.

    You can solo that room if you get good enough.

    Good things come to those that put in effort...not ask for things to be nerfed on the forums.

    Just my opinion. There is far too much focus on grouping content in this game and we need less of that and more empowering players to get good at stuff on their own.

    After all, are you truly worthy if someone else must help you beat something ?

    Unfortunately, it seems this way.

    I also asked this myself months ago as I tried it the first time.

    I thought, entering the next time, it would start at the crypt and we could move on - nope ;)
    From that moment I knew the meaning of that kind of "suffer" ...

    So: if you like to do it together with a few others, I would follow this group with you and @margaritte :)

    Just did it with a group... almost too easy.

    It would be cool if it handed out a deco item, say the Compendium itself.. when you beat Wave 20.

    And perhaps some of the group content should limit groups to 4 to make things more interesting.

    Well it does depend on your group lol. I did it with some very new players and we wiped a few times. I can say I'm not superwoman at level 96 ish ;) but we did have a good time trying.

    Oops I lied I am only level 94. I was wishful thinking ;)

    if you die in a particular room there is an ankh nearby. You dont have to go back to the beginning. At least that is how it is for me. You do have to restart the circle in the room that you died in. Keep fighting it til you beat it and then move on. I have never been sent back to the beginning. Unless you are doing the quest. Not sure about that one. I just go in and go through it. Dont even talk to the ghost there. So that might be the difference

    If you can beat this solo you are a badass. if not, you arent. If you do it with even a decent group its a cake walk. Even UT presents more danger. Sometimes the wheat must be separated from the chaff.

    Thanks for the replies, everybody... I could fight through the crypt alone... BUT... it takes time... and if you have to do it again and again to keep going, I would need 2-3 hours for the whole thing maybe... and I rarely gather that playing time together :) :)

    Thanks again!
