The Lair of Shaitan is a high level dungeon consisting only of a boss fight. The dungeon is the source of the Skull of Endless Torment which was previously a long-unreleased item, and, since Release X.28.0 (July 2018), also drops the Wakizashi of Crossing Fires. The Staff of Eruption, which is one part of the Magmatic Mystic ST Set, was later added as a drop. The Flame Cloth (Designed by WunderWafe) and the Heavy Chainmail Cloth are site-specific drops, and there is currently no other way to obtain them.

The dungeon is accessible via the Court of Oryx.

This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Explosive Journey‘, ‘Enemy of the Court‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad Godfame bonuses.

The Realm Eye says:
The scorching hot domain of Shaitan is located extremely close to core of the realm. Even most demons find the heat of his lair to be unbearable.
It is in those fires that the Skull of Endless Torment was crafted, a monument to the pain that his victims may endure.


Shaitan's Key The Shaitan’s Key can be bought in the Nexus for 100 Realm Gold.


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

Tips and Strategies

This boss can deal massive damage and there is little room for dodging, so it is best to fight with a decent sized group. The boss’s HP scales by number of players, so the fight is lengthened if there are unmaxed players present who only contribute a low amount to the group’s DPS. Hence, it is best to do this dungeon either in a small select group of maxed players who will all contribute to the fight, or a huge group (for example when a special event is held in the dungeon).

The key’s sprite originally looked like this:
Shaian's Key
Everything else besides from the above was kept to the current version in terms of sprites. The map layout has changed quiet a lot since Build 20.0.1.

The dungeon was later changed, sprites got changed to all the current sprites and the map layout was also later changed to the version shown in the original page for this dungeon. See Lair of Shaitan (Original).

Lair of Shaitan was the first Boss Dungeon to be released. The dungeon was originally a different map and the boss had different mechanics.

It was reworked into its current form in Patch X.31.8.0 (July 2019). The rework was primarily designed by Kingged, a member of the “User-Generated Content” group.

This was the first dungeon in game to drop cloths.
