Demon Beast Canyon
Demon Beast Canyon is the first Tier 1 Abyssal Dungeon. This instance is also first place in the game where players are introduced to the party wipe mechanic. It is considered to be a fairly easy dungeon but requires some form of communication and cooperation between all party members. In order to complete Necromancer’s Origin make sure that all players are familiar with mechanics and their roles.
Demon Beast Canyon consists of two bosses:
- Corrupted Vazuela
- Hideous Scarkril
- HP Recovery potion - this is only way to heal yourself during the fight
- Protective Potion - creates shield of 15% max HP for 8 seconds
- Whirlwind Grande - this type of grenade deals decent damage and applies a lot of stagger
Corrupted Vazuela is the first boss of Demon Beast Canyon with slow and telegraphic abilities. Only tricky thing about this fight are Blood Pools which are dealing damage over time to players within its range. They are being created by Vazuela randomly and linger for unlimited duration. To remove them simply stagger the boss with abilities or Whirlwind Grenades.

Hideous Scarkril is the second boss of Demon Beast Canyon. Much more agile and less predictable than Vazuela. What’s moderately difficult about this boss is party wipe mechanic called Burning Magic Core. where at 6 absorb stacks the boss goes into stealth mode and starts summoning orbs. Orbs respawn randomly in four parts of the arena: north, south, east, west. They should be focused by the whole party and destroyed as soon as possible. If party fails to destroy enough orbs in given time Scakril casts ultimate explosion one shotting the whole party.
Boss enters the immortal phase on reaching 6 absorb stacks and starts creating orbs. Orbs will be spawned in four locations, north, south, east, west and in each location orb has to be destroyed 4 times to end this phase. Additionally during that phase the boss will be teleporting to attacked orb and cast some abilities. If orbs won’t be destroyed under certain amount of time boss casts explosion which will wipe whole party.
