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 main source 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, inflict no status effects, 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.

Entrances to the Abyss of Demons are commonly dropped from White Demons and last 30 seconds.

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.

Layout

The dungeon consists of a large network of small, square rooms which may be linked by very short hallways that are often absent. Each room consists of simple red ground and wall tiles. Piles of bones are scattered throughout the dungeon. Rivers of lava extend through the entire area. Broken tiles can be commonly found on top of lava tiles and will allow players to cross them safely, although these tiles decrease movement speed.

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.

Tips

Boss Tips and Strategies

Be prepared, and know what may come: You have the chance of stepping in lava, which could slow your movement and become vulnerable to other incoming enemies’ attacks as well as taking some serious damage from the lava.
Demons of the abyss are DANGEROUS: Treat them with more caution than you treat gods.
Lava only hurts your feet: Simply rotate your point of view so that your feet stay on the lava bridges and you will avoid lava damage.

Treasure Room Tips and Strategies

It turns a lot of the floor around it into lava when activated. The monster shoots paralyze bullets, so if you’re hit while in the lava, you’re toast. Its drops are identical to Archdemon Malphas’ drops.
Sometimes there are 2 (or more) Treasure Rooms in the Abyss of Demons and there is an easy way to know it. When you kill the Idol, the path should come back to normal (lava disappear), if it doesn’t, there is probably another Treasure Room somewhere in the Abyss of Demon.
You must swim in lava to exit the room (or teleport if you can). HOWEVER, if the lava disappears as usual, there still might be an additional treasure room.
IF YOU DO NOT THINK YOU CAN KILL THE TREASURE IDOL BY YOURSELF:
1. Do Malphas first so if you nexus, the time spent in the Abyss was not wasted completely
2. Follow the step listed below. Trying won’t hurt. And for the treasure room and the Abyss in general: DO NOT BE AFRAID TO NEXUS, because the abyss is dropped VERY frequently.

How to kill
Step One: Clear the room of the smaller demons before shooting the Idol. If you do accidently shoot it, be ready for a difficult fight.

Step Two: Once the room is clear, begin using your weapon on the idol. If you are using a Wizard, Knight or any ability that deals massive damage, use it. For knights, use an Ogmur and a Colossus Shield on it quickly.

BEWARE!: Do not let the big shot hit you with paralysis. IF you do and he throws lava in your zone, just nexus

Step 3: Various spots of the room should be getting filled with lava and going back to normal. Just move to safe spots without getting caught in the lava. Keep attacking when you get the chance until it dies and the lava disappears. Get the Vit and hopefully a T10 Weapon/T5 Ability

Tip: Sometimes, if you stand very close to the idol and find the right spot (it will be one of the cardinal directions), you can stand next to the idol and only get hit by its small shotgun. It will not throw lava at you, and can be killed laughably easily.

Tip: When you are fighting only brutes you can run in circles and shoot behind you, because the brutes shoot forward and they follow the player, walking straight into your shots, while you easily dodge theirs.

Tip: The Abyss is a great place to build up base fame. When soloing you can get about 35 to 50 fame per Abyss

History

As of Build 123.3, treasure rooms hav a chance of spawning 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 build 27.7.X6, the bosses will no longer drop a guaranteed Potion of Defense. Instead, the Toxic Sewers became the main source of Potions of Defense among Godlands dungeons.
