Desolate Tomb (Forgotten Tomb) is the new level 50 dungeon updated in Blade & Soul CN on 30th Jun 2015. The bosses and setting of Desolate Tomb are designed based on the Level 36 Tomb of Exile dungeon. The stage mechanics is probably the most complicated one among all the dungeons in Blade & Soul Online so far. However, the mechanics was simplified in later update (Feb 2016).
Stage 1: Jang GhiBu
The main boss of the stage is a force master, 张起副 (Jang GhiBu, i will just call him Jang), and his 2 Destroyer wives, 明月 & 武月 (Ming Yue and Wu Yue).
Jang’s normal attack consists of Force Master skills, with ice and fire elements.
Phase 1: HP 100% – 70%
Attack mode 1: Attack Wives
Jang starts with a force shield which reduces 90% of the damage you deal to him. You can’t deal much damage to him at this time. Just send a tanker to hold the aggro, while the other party members go to attack his two wives, until their HP is < 70%.
Attack mode 2: Transfer of Shield
When the 2 wives HP are below 70%, Jang will transfer his defence buff to the wives. This will cause anyone within 5m from the wives to be pushed back.
Without his defensive shield, the party can deal damage to Jang as per normal. Therefore, just leave someone, preferably the summoners’ cat and another ranged class to tank the 2 wives while the other party members attack Jang.
*** Do NOT kill the wives or else Jang will go berserk and cause party wipe.
Phase 2: HP 70% – 40%
Attack mode 3: Mass Freeze + Love Attack
When Jang HP reaches 70%, he will jump to the middle of the room and prepare to cast the wide AOE Mass Freeze. The 2 wives will then jump to his sides. As soon as the 2 wives land, the Mass Freeze is triggered.
To prevent being frozen, party i-frame skills, such as dandelion of Summoner should be used. The frozen status on party members can also be dispel if you have a Force Master in the party.
3-hit Love Attack (whole field AOE) follows after 3sec. Blade Master should be using the sword protection, which can resist 3 x of the attack. The Love Attack also heals the two wives (who are dancing at the sides)
Subsequently, Jang will unleash another 3-hit Love Attack and this time, the 2 wives will be casting Fire Spin and travel across the room. Here, it is best to have Force Master freezing the whole group for protection.
Take note that Jang can be damaged through Attack Mode 3, but do NOT to bring his HP below 40%, because it will trigger the Phase 3 Love attack immediately. If the CD of the party resist skills are not yet finished, this will likely cause party wipe.
The boss will gain back his shield after Attack Mode 3. The Attack Mode 1 (bring down the wives’ HP) and Mode 2 (force Jang to transfer his shield) are repeated until his HP reaches 40%.
At any time during normal attack, the boss might freeze the member which is furthest away from him and use ice fraction (very high damage). To prevent this, one can disable/CC the boss immediately or Force Master can dispel the frozen status on the member.
Phase 3: 40% – 20%
At 40% HP, he will perform Attack Mode 3 (a.k.a mass freeze > 3 x Love Attack > 3 x Love Attack) again.
After the Love Attack, do NOT bring the boss HP down below 20%, as it will trigger another rounds of AOE attacks immediately. Do give some time to recover the CD of all party resist skills.
Phase 4: 20% – 0%
When Jang’s HP reaches 20%, he will use Attack Mode 4
Attack Mode 4: Mass Freeze + Love Attack
He will transfer his shield permanent to the two wives. After that, he will cast Mass Freeze (without jumping to the middle) and use 3 x Love Attack AOE. The two wives cast Fire Spin around the room as well.
Soulburn buff of Warlock should be used when the boss is at 30% HP, provided that the party resist skills have finished CD, to kill the boss ASAP.
After Jang is dead, the two wives will be weaken for a long time and can be killed easily.
