  • How To Unlock Forge Of Fallen Pride

lost ark‘s Forge of Fallen Pride is the climactic abyssal dungeon of Yorn’s main storyline, and is one of the few dungeons unlocked as level two content. This is the second of two Abyssal dungeons below the larger Ark of Arrogance dungeon (Road of Lament is the first), the base level of which you walk through as part of Yorn’s main quest.

Forge of Fallen Pride doesn’t have any consequential additions to worry about (like most Abyssal dungeons do), but it does have two bosses, both of which have important mechanics to be aware of.

Although their notable mechanics are covered, their basic attack patterns will not be due to their extremely low impact levels in combat.

How To Unlock Forge Of Fallen Pride

Similar to Road of Lament, there are three simple requirements (with one additional) you must meet to gain access to the Forge of Fallen Pride Abyssal Dungeon:

  • Be level 50 (which you should be by the time you reach Yorn anyway, so this one doesn’t matter).
  • Completed Yorn’s main story questline (especially the “Stop Velcruze” quest).
  • Have at least item level 840. Level 1 Yorn Chaos dungeons only reward level 802 gear, so you’ll need to level up to level 840.
  • Completed the Road of Lament Abyssal Dungeon.

Forge of Fallen Pride may reward Accessories, Gear, Ability Stones, Engravings, Level Two Tailoring and Metallurgy Books (for increased success rate), and Card Packs, but if your item level is 1,325 or higher, you will receive decreasing rewards.

You will not be able to earn Metallurgy and Tailoring Books, Gold, or Engravings. And, while you’ll still get the level two materials, they won’t be of much use on your level three character, so the only reason you’re really running this dungeon at this point is for card packs (or carrying a friend).

Fallen Pride Challenge Mode Forge

Forge of Fallen Pride’s challenge mode rotates with the rest of the Abyssal Dungeons and will reward you with loot appropriate to your level. All you need to be is level 50 and item level 960 to enterand don’t think you can run it at an absurdly high item level: the Harmony Scale adjusts your item level to avoid such situations.

First Boss: Amaus

Amaus is the first boss in the Forge of Fallen Pride dungeon.and it’s a refreshingly simple encounter with minimal things to do other than dodge and kill.

While it has two important mechanics to run through, neither of them is a one-hit mechanic, so breathe that sigh of relief.

  • Curse: A big enough a red circle will appear around you when Amaus curses you. It won’t hurt you, but it will severely hurt your teammates if it explodes with them in its radius (it has a three second detonation time), so be sure to distance yourself from your party members. If multiple people are cursed, it doesn’t matter if the circles overlap. As long as there is no one else in your circle but you, everyone is fine.
  • Summon Wyvern: Twice during the fight, once at eight health bars and once at four health bars (he has ten health bars in total), Amaus will summon one or two wyverns to aid him in battle. All you have to do is kill them, but do it as fast as possible. If you leave them alive too long, Amaus will get a huge defensive buff this will make it harder to take down (the buff also gives him extra attack speed and movement speed).

If Amaus gets his buff, the best way to get rid of it is with abilities that deal high stagger damage (and grenades that deal high stagger damageif you have some).

It’s not the end of the world if he gets this buff, because even with the extra time it takes to get rid of this buff, you should still be able to kill him before he goes berserk.

Second Boss: Kaishur

Kaishur is the second and final boss in the Forge of Fallen Pride dungeon. Like Amaus, Kaishur has two main mechanics to worry about, except one of his is, indeed, a fearsome one-hit mechanic that will obliterate your entire party.

Counter attack

Let’s start with the mechanism that doesn’t delete your group on failure.

Periodically, Kaishur will raise a defensive red shield around him. At this point, you and everyone in your group should stop attacking him until the shield is gone.

If he takes enough damage from your party in a counterattack, he’ll smack your entire party with a very powerful strike. It won’t necessarily be a hit for you, but it can definitely kill you if you’re not at full health.

Red and white ghosts

Let’s move on to his one-hit mechanic. Twice during the fight, once at his sixteenth health bar and once at his eighth health bar, Kaishur will move to the center of the map and begin channeling his massive attack. In doing so, pay attention to the color of the orb he is holding aloft; it will be either red or white. At a time, it will also summon two ghosts; one red and one white.

You have to kill the ghost that matches the color of the orb the central Kaishur is holding up, and you should do it quickly. Once you kill the correct ghost, a circular safe zone will appear on its corpse that you should all stand in to avoid being obliterated.

Don’t worry about accidentally killing the wrong color ghost. It doesn’t matter if he dies, as long as the good one also dies in time for Kaishur’s one-hit shockwave.

Basic Attack Patterns

Other than those two mechanics, Kaishur is a fairly straightforward fight. His basic attack patterns don’t hurt too badly, but he does have a few that can give you trouble. Also, most of them are buffed if low on health, so let’s pick a few.

  • Staggered verification: This is the most common basic mechanic in Kaishur, because if this stagger test fails, it has the potential to obliterate your party. It won’t kill you while at full health, but can easily kill you if you’re not..
  • Sword fan: Kaishur throws a bunch of swords around him, and it’s not too hard to dodge. Remember that after a certain delay, they all target a player and charge them. If you’re the one aiming, keep running until they’re gone.
  • Ghost Strikes: The ghosts he summons outside of his main wipe mechanic perform fast linear strikes.
  • Lightning: It’s a mechanic he does a lot, and he often covers a lot of the map when using them. They are small circular area-of-effect strikes that persist with lightning after being called for a short time.

Although his basic attack patterns won’t shoot you, it’s worth it prioritize dodging them over damaging the bossas his counterattack and stagger test can both kill you if your health bar isn’t full.
