The Abyss of Demons is a medium-level dungeon that is a staple source of Potions of Vitality for many players. It is also the drop location of the untiered Demon Blade and two pieces of the Magmatic Mystic ST Set.

The normal enemies in the dungeon attack in groups, have low health, but deal high damage. In addition, much of the dungeon is covered with lava, meaning high defense and/or HP is recommended for surviving the dungeon.

The entrance to the Abyss of Demons is commonly found upon slaying White Demons and lasts 30 seconds before disappearing.

This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Tunnel Rat‘, ‘King of the Mountains‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad Godfame bonuses.

The Realm Eye says:
The depraved depths of the abyss were made by Archdemon Malphas. At first it was nothing more than a personal shelter, but it soon became the home of many demons.
The souls of the wicked are disposed of in the realm’s lava fissures, left to endure an agonizing eternity together.
Strictly speaking, Archdemon Malphas is the ruler of these lesser demons since he created the chambers. But in reality, he suffers just as much as them.


Abyss of Demons KeyThe Abyss of Demons Key is available in the Nexus for 50 Realm Gold.


See the Abyss of Demons Guide for a complete walk-through on the dungeon and all its enemies.



The dungeon consists of a large network of small, square rooms linked by very short hallways. Each room consists of simple red ground and wall tiles. Piles of bones are scattered throughout the dungeon. Rivers of lava extend throughout the entire area. Atop every lava pit found in hallways between rooms, broken tiles are found which allow players to safely cross. While stepping on these fragile tiles, the player must tread carefully, therefore impeding the speed of crossing.

There is a non-guaranteed chance for at least one treasure room to appear in the dungeon. Treasure rooms can only have an exit in the south.

The boss room is always 10 rooms from spawn

Tips and Strategies

When clearing through the Abyss, be patient. The enemies in this dungeon can easily swarm you if you aren’t careful, and if you are cornered, you will have to nexus or die. Avoid lava at all costs, as they slow you down and deal damage if you try to swim in it.

If you want to rush through however, keep on the lookout for enemies, the environment and your minimap. If you hit a dead end or get cornered, you will have to deal with the enemies behind you, which can kill you easily if you are not tanky enough. Do not rush if you are inexperienced, as you will most certainly die trying.

The room layouts in the Abyss can screw you over when you are trying to map read. A good tip is to loosely move towards the boss room, taking the paths that have a high chance of going to the boss room. With enough experience, you will gain the instinct to take the right path most of the time.

Once you reach the boss room, take your time to kill off the White Demons defending the area. While not necessary in a large group or with high DPS, taking them down reduces the distraction throughout the fight. Once you’re done with that, walk through the middle of the room and activate Malphas. His attacks may seem intimidating, but they are patterned. Take your time to analyze the patterns, as it will help you dodge attacks much better.

Rarely, you may find the treasure room in the Abyss, indicated by the unique entrance to the room. If you find one, clear the minions inside first before taking on the Abyss Idol in the middle, as you cannot return back until it is defeated. However, if you are not confident with your skills, you can avoid this fight for now and kill Malphas first, then you can return here and try. Its attacks are quite scary and dangerous because of the Paralyze shots and the lava that appears throughout the fight. Avoid all of those at all costs and take the Idol down with your weapon and ability.

    Old Abyss Boss Room Glitch

  • As of Build 123.3, Treasure Rooms have gotten the chance of appearing in this dungeon. These rooms contain a “Mini-Boss”: the Abyss Idol.

  • In Release ????, Potions of Defense were added as a guaranteed drop from Archdemon Malphas and the Abyss Idol. As of Patch 27.7.X6 (Oct 2016), the bosses were no longer guaranteed to drop a Potion of Defense. Instead, the Toxic Sewers took the Abyss of Demons’ place as the main source of Potions of Defense among the Godlands dungeons.

  • In Exalt Version (Sep 2020), this dungeon recieved a significant rework for MotMG 2020. For more information about what the dungeon was previously, see Abyss of Demons (Original).

Back when White Demons dropped Abyss Portals the White Demons in the Abyss had a chance of dropping a portal, which lead to some players running “Abyssceptions”.

Out of the various statues of demons found within the Abyss, four of them in particular depict Molek and the three forms of Balaam, matching their lore as mythical demon lords.
