Additional notes[edit | edit source]

  • Imprison Soul:
    • Imprisoned allies gain 100% Attack Bar when stolen and move immediately.
    • When an ally monster is imprisoned, the monster's skills are refreshed and are available to use against the player.
    • Imprisoned ally will be returned at 50% HP after defeating it.
    • Imprison skill bypasses immunity and invincible state.
  • The Time of the Dead:
    • Speed limit is 130.
    • Speed buff raises speed over the limit.[4]
    • Applying the slow debuff on the boss also works.
    • Speed leader skills will not go over the limit.
  • Soul Barrier:
    • Soul Barrier is not a buff, it is a passive, so it cannot be removed by buff removal.
    • Debuffs on the boss can only be applied when Soul Barrier is down.
    • Using monsters with multi-hit attacks is a good tactic for clearing the soul barrier, e.g. Colleen.
    • Soul Barrier is not an invincibility effect, and cannot be bypassed by skills like Cassie's 3rd skill "Devil's bullet" or Samurais' secret skill "Sword of the Supreme Sky Wolf".
    • Violent & Revenge runes are useful for depleting the Soul Barrier.
  • Turn order is important in defeating this boss. Players are recommended to tune the Speed of their monsters to suit their Necropolis team. Generally, monsters with multi-hit skills are set the fastest while Speed debuffers and attackers are set slower.
  • Continuous Damage and Bombs deal their damage, but do not decrease the boss's maximum Hit Points according to the Soul Barrier passive "...MAX HP decreases by 30% of the incoming damage," whether the shield is up or down.
