We've got a real treat in store for PvMers this week. Get ready to fight Nex with the full power of the ancient elements at her disposal and claim some fantastic new rewards.
Are you ready to face the Angel of Death?
Nex: Angel of Death
How to Start
Use the Frozen Key to enter the Ancient Prison in the God Wars Dungeon.
Enter the bank/lobby area with a Zarosian killcount of at least 40, or wearing ancient ceremonial robes.
Enter the hidden door on the south wall of the bank/lobby area.
High combat levels and your best gear are recommended
Tool up, gather your friends and head over to the Ancient Prison to face Nex in this all-new boss encounter.
We wanted this to feel like the classic boss fights you remember, so there's no 10-player cap or kill chaining here. Create or join an instance with your tight-knit bossing group, or a full-on mass – your choice.
From then on, you're on your own. Have fun discovering what Nex is capable of now that her power is fully unleashed.
New curses, battle robe overrides and swathes of ancient lore are all up for grabs should you succeed. There's more to discover, too, so take down the Angel of Death and load up on rich rewards.
Big thanks to Mod Ramen, who led the design and development of today's update in his personal-projects time.
Have fun conquering the latest brutal boss encounter!
