We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The fiends must be driven back. And what better place to begin than the seat of our noble line?

~ The Ancestor on entering a Skirmish expedition in the Ruins

The Ruins is the first dungeon that can be explored. The former halls and seat of the Ancestor's power, the Ruins are now a black, shifting maze of corridors firmly under the control of the Necromancers and their continuously expanding undead army.

After the Ancestor's short-sighted revival of the powerful Necromancers, they moved into the Ruins that once housed your family’s lineage. There they desecrated the graves of soldiers and nobles alike, bringing them back as a mindless skeletal horde.

Ruins Music[edit | edit source]

The music that plays while exploring the Ruins is Exploring the Ruins, and during combat it is Combat in the Ruins.

Ruins Strategy[edit | edit source]

Provisions[edit | edit source]

  • Holy Water is extremely useful as there are five different curios found in the Ruins that can benefit from an application of Holy Water.
  • Skeleton Keys are a close second, considering the amount of locked curios encountered in the Ruins.
  • Medicinal Herbs have a small utility, on the Iron Maiden and Alchemy Table.
  • Antivenom and Bandages are less important here than in other locations due to the comparative lack of DOT attacks and complete absence of curio applications.
  • Shovel is recommended for clearing Rubble.
  • Consider bringing more Food than normal, as there aren't any food-oriented curios in the Ruins.

Party Composition[edit | edit source]

Characters reliant on doing Bleed damage are much less effective in Ruins than in other locations due to the presence of skeletons (which cannot bleed). Conversely, characters proficient with Blight attacks become extremely useful here as most enemies have very low blight resistance, and there are a few enemies with high PROT (less susceptible to regular damage, more susceptible to DOT).

Crusader does really well in the Ruins due to the increased damage he deals to unholy enemies. Grave Robber is fast enough to kill Bone Courtiers before they get a turn.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Ruins is the easiest region to explore: skeletons don't have many special attacks, holy curios with positive effects are easy to come by, and urns, chests, and cabinets can provide some good loot. Bone Captain is weaker than his counterparts from other regions. It's also worth noting that the Ruin's traps only do regular and stress damage, with no DOT or debuff.

The general strategy is to kill stress/damage dealers in the back ranks first, then focus on enemies without PROT, leave Bone Rabble and Bone Defender for last, as they don't hit that hard. Pulling Bone Courtier or Bone Arbalist to the front rows as well as knocking Cultist Brawler back to 3/4 position can be a good idea: they will use weaker attacks to get back to their desired position. Alternatively, if your party has enough damage, speed, and stun ability, enemy groups with two Bone Courtiers and/or Bone Arbalists can be great opportunities for recuperation - by killing the two front-line enemies first (and removing their corpses) so that the Courtiers / Arbalists move into the first two rows, you can reduce the enemy force to two monsters that are stuck in rows where they deal very little melee damage and no stress damage outside of an infrequent critical hit, allowing you to stun or simply tank the negligible damage while restoring lost health and stress.
