    “Nidhugsheim” group game (A Whale of Time)

    Once you have collected enough ancient emblems you are able to access the “Nidhugsheim” group map from the Safe Haven by speaking to Magnus Halbert.

    After you choose the role you want to play (“Damage Dealer”, “Healer” and Tank”) and the team is full you are teleported to the group map where you face the two bosses “Nidhug” and “Hildisvini”.

    Each boss has two phases.

    During phase 1 both bosses apply de-buffs (“Nidhug” applies a different de-buff than “Hildisvini”) on the player with the highest “Aggro” (tank). Each application increases the de-buff stack by one, that means the effect gets applied multiple times. Each de-buff stack prolongs the duration so the tanks should regularly switch bosses so the individual de-buffs don’t stack too high. Meanwhile the damage dealers should inflict damage (in the best case equally) to push both bosses into phase 2.

    During both phases, the healer should heal the tanks.

    The 2nd phase of each boss will start when they reach a certain amount of HP. During the 2nd phase Whale “Nidhug” submerge and whale hunters try to steal your loot by attacking the Whale. After the whale dies in this phase, he switches back to phase 1 again and your whole group is rewarded.

    The group damage share treats the group as an own entity and share the loot equally in this group. Be sure to be in a group!

    When “Hildisvini” switches into the second phase, he spawns “Freyja” minions which attack the whale hunters spawned by “Nidhug” and hereby save your loot. If there are none of them left, the “Freyja minions” de-spawn after a certain time (be aware when you bring which boss in phase 2!). As soon as any of the bosses dies (“Nidhug” or “Hildisvini”) the other one gets enraged. The boss who’s left spawns a zone underneath him which makes him stronger.

    The players who do the last shot and most damage on Whale “Nidhug” have a chance to receive the whale pet (Pyke).

    If both bosses are dead, all players are teleported back to the regular map again. If you don´t manage to kill both bosses your time is not shown up in the ranking.

    “Bloodfin’s Pool-Map” (In the Jaws)

    Once you have collected enough ancient emblems you are able to access the “Bloodfin’s Pool-Map” from the Safe Haven by speaking to Magnus Halbert.

    After you choose the role you want to play (“Damage Dealer”, “Healer” and Tank”) and the team is full you are teleported to the “Bloodfin’s Pool-Map”.

    Upon entering the group map there is the main boss, “Bloodfin” and a victim, which is trapped by a small shark. Your goal is to kill “Bloodfin”, without the victim getting sunk. The victim receives periodically damage during your run. When the victim dies, the map is lost and you are teleported back to the normal map without the final loot. If the map is won (you kill the shark), the HP percentage of the victim defines the amount of loot you receive. Your healer should heal the victim at certain times during the run to increase your loot.

    The shark has two phases and a final phase.

    He switches into those if he has reached a certain amount of HP.

    During the
    1st phase he follows and deal a lot of damage to the player with the highest threat.
    While he is attacking, he drops blood zones, which increases the attack speed of the shark and deal damage to the players. During this phase, the tank should move a lot, so the shark is moving constantly.

    During the
    2nd phase the shark dives down and attacks the highest thread from below with a zone. The player in the zone is trapped and isn´t able to move his ship. He receives periodically damage as well. Additionally, small sharks attack the victim. After you have killed all of them the 2nd phase ends and some loot is rewarded to all group members.

    In the
    final phase of the shark he additionally spawns more tiger sharks. This tiger sharks attacks your group and don´t reward you with anything. The shark continuously spawns these tiger sharks until he is dead.

    When the shark is dead, the map is finished and you are teleported back to normal map again. Depending on the HP percentage of your victim you receive the same percentage of loot (Pearls).

    You can access the Arena by speaking to Magnus Halbert in any of the Safe Havens.
