Abyssal Depths

For Delve biome, see Abyssal Depths (Delve).

The Abyssal Depths are a side area accessible from Abysses.

Abysses in areas of area level 78+ may rarely spawn a portal to the Abyssal Depths at its fourth pit instead of generating an Abyssal Trove or Stygian Spire. The Abyssal Depths is a mostly linear subterranean area that contains several Abyssal monsters as well as Hoards, which often drop Abyss jewels.

Abyssal Depths, like other external areas, are always one area level higher than the zone it is connected to. The minimum area level is 79 and the maximum natural area level is 84, accessed through a T16 map (area level 83).

Bosess

Abyssal Depths always contain one of two Abyssal Liches. Each time the Lich loses 25% of its life, it disappears and a timer of 1 minute and 30 seconds appears. The player must enter a smaller sub-arena to kill the Stygian Spire inside and then return to the Lich's arena. The timer does not reset between Spire fights, but it is halted once each Spire has been defeated. The players must kill all three Spires in the time provided, or the encounter will end.

Liches are guaranteed to drop a Stygian ViseStygian ViseHas 1 Abyssal Socket and can randomly drop Unique Abyss jewels or one of five Abyss socket-themed Uniques; some items can have a variable roll of Abyss sockets.

The boss spawned depends on the area ID generated: AbyssLeagueBoss contains Ulaman and AbyssLeagueBoss2 contains Amanamu.

Ulaman, Sovereign of the Well

Ulaman attacks with a slow Flicker Strike attack that fires projectiles and recovers life, and can disappear to summon monsters. For more information, visit their page.

Amanamu, Liege of the Lightless

Amanamu occasionally summons stationary Stygian Hearts and fires shards or creates explosive crystals; Amanamu becomes immune to damage if more than two Stygian Hearts are alive at once. For more information, visit their page.
