For Daeva’s Only: Abyss Situation Report

Recommended Posts

Hime   

Divine Fortress Siege
Ereshkigal’s influence is immense. After the situation, a recon team has identified Divine Fortress as Ereshkigal’s new stronghold. We’ve confirmed that the leader of the defense is none other than Orissan, despite being reported killed at Drakenspire Depths.

Notes:

  • Access to the Core is only available through flying from the Upper Abyss.
  • When the fortress siege starts, flight is disabled due to Ereshkigal’s influence.
  • Faction designated platforms are available for Coalition Kisks.
  • Capturing all Upper Abyss Fortresses (Krotan, Kysis, and Miren) prior to Divine provides a special siege cannon to be used against Divine.
  • Capturing all Core Artifacts will make for quicker gate destruction.

Requirement: Coalition – Siege
Time: Saturday Evening
Rewards: Equipment Purification materials, Spinel Medals, Spinel Fragments


Mirash Sanctum
Scouts discovered a secret network of chambers inside Divine Fortress, but could not investigate further due to heavy security. More Balaur seem to come out of the chambers than go in.

Notes:

  • Fortress occupiers will have a safer and easier access to the dungeon inside the fortress.
  • Another entrance discovered outside of the fortress where Balaur and other opposing faction members may lurk.

Requirement: Solo, Level 66+
Availability: Four times a week
Rewards: Minium, Stigma Bundle, Spinel Medals, Prime Guard/Archon Royal equipment and accessories

 

Frozen Monolith
Identified as a defensive fortification for Ereshkigal’s Legion. Brigade General Nergal protects a tower rumored to be linked to Ereshkigal’s influence in the Abyss.

Notes:

  • Board a Frigate using the Frigate Boarding Device from Redemption/Harbinger’s Landing

Requirement: Party, Level 66+
Availability: Four times a week
Rewards: Purification materials, Spinel Coins, Condition, Elite/Royal Guardian/Archon Sentinel equipment


Prepare reinforcements.

This looks pretty good. Looking forward to Mirash and Frozen Monolith. What time (server time) will Divine Fortress happen on Saturdays? Maybe it could be as early as Kaldor c:

Couple of questions off the top of my head.

First, there is a way to fly into the Core from the Lower Abyss? In the past the only way to fly into the Core was through the top. Flying in from the sides or bottom brought nothing but big fire/freezing death.

Second, so if the only way to get into the Core is to fly and all flight is disabled when the siege begins, does that mean if you aren't already in the Core and landed somewhere safe, you won't be able to attend the siege?

Maybe it's just no fly zone around the fortress not entirely core.

If we get the same deal as Korea, it will take up the time slot of Dredgion Defense (6pm on Sundays). But it might be different.

You'll be able to access the Abyss Core from the Upper Abyss (there is a hole much like the pre-ice days). When the siege starts, anyone in the Abyss Core will be teleported out to their faction's respective area - at which point you'll be able to get into the core again with via a special way and begin your siege from a landing spot for your faction, but without flight.

Another question. 

If Divine always a take? Or can it be a defense as well?

It will work like the current forts so it will return to Balaur at the time of the siege.

Yet another question!

This cannon that a faction gets when they control all three UA forts when the Divine siege starts.. is it automated? Or does someone sit in and control it? If it's the second, who is allowed to enter the cannon? Anyone? Do they need cannonballs? Where do those come from? If they get out or DC in the cannon, does it despawn and stay gone or will it respawn?

Yet another another question!

If your faction controls all 5 artifacts, the door has less HP. Is that less HP for you? Or less HP period? Will the door be able to tell which factor is on it? What if the Elyos have all 5 artifacts and go on the door. They get the door to 75% and get wiped by the Asmodians. The Asmodians get on the door. Does the door now have more HP? What if both Elyos and Asmos are hitting the door?

Just trying to clarify. The new solo instance gives out ap items?? If so that's not bad considering with this patch they are now so very obsolete..

Correct, it only gives out the level 70 pieces though.

I ask because Kaldor is the only siege I can attend, UA is very late, so having Divine at around the same time (as Kaldor) would be really good for me and others too.

Yes, but you can purify/upgrade it to level 75 if the level 70 piece is at +10.

I know, but I would say it is better to go straight for the level 75 set and then to the level 80 one. :P

So the upgraded Harvester Set is also included in this 5.8 (it wasn't in the RU 5.8 though).

Well its nice in a way, since they won't have to bother with any minor updates before 6.0.

Though we only get 1 extra Stigma Slot unlike 2 (which was later added to the KR AION 5.8, as a minor update on November 15th 2017).
