Was easy only part that was little trouble were the lovers. You better get use to spamming ress on downed players and abusing waypoints when downed. Manor dungeon the first boss pretty much 1 shots you. From my experience so far dungeons just turn into a ress fest. You can't really apply tactics when a boss does a huge aoe that 1 shots you requiring less than 1 second reflex time to dodge it

You can still go back and try it, it will down scale you to 30 for the story mode anyway

Which mobs do you guys recommend targeting first?
From my time in there, it seemed the Ele and Necro's should be taken down first?


they have monks.
we don't.
target the monks first.

I really enjoyed the game play and difficulty of the dungeon.
Although it was quite challenging for some people in our group, in the end we all agreed that it was worth the adventure.
Good times and I can't wait until the higher level dungeons!

I've only done it once, and everyone got a rare hat from Adelbern.

When you do it again, do you automatically get sent to Explorable mode or do you do story mode again? And if story mode, do you keep getting the hat?

I think you have the option to choose which version you want to do.

I always aim for the Elementalist first in AC due to their insane AoE.

I did it with two rangers, two warrior, and an elementalist. The only real trouble we had was a group before Nente with like three Ascalonian Rangers who wiped us like five times haha; we had no trouble with any bosses though.

Explorable mode is just a bit higher than story mode. Not sure about all the dungeons, but for AC, it's 35, while the story mode is 30. I'd expect it's a similar relationship to the other dungeons.

At least, that's how it was explained last I'd heard. Could have changed, I suppose.

I got to 30 last night, so I'm thinking of trying AC tonight, but no one else in my guild is high enough, and I'm not sure I want to try a PUG. Hmm, decisions, decisions...

What are u talking about story mode is easy as pie. We did it on the first run with FOUR people.. and wipe out like 2 times only. Also we tried it with 2 ppl and it was definately possible it would just took much more time

In regards to story mode and explorable mode...
- Story Mode: Every 10 levels starting at level 30 (so the dungeons are at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80)
- Explorable Mode: Unlocked after finishing the particular dungeon in story mode and are five levels higher than the story mode version (except the level 80 dungeons where story and explorable mode are the same level)


As for Ascalon Catacombs, I quite enjoyed the dungeon, bit difficult but I quite like that its challenging and not super easy where you can just aoe everything in front of you and collect the loot at the end.

How did you guys manage to join into the dungeon with 5 people? The game simply refuses to put the 5th person with us, and sometimes we get spread around.

I noticed when we had 4 people from one server and another guy from another server he would be in his own instance eg. 4 of us were in Catacombs(blackgate) and he was in Catacombs(Gate of Madness)
