The istance

Once you enter the instance you will be transformed into Shugo warrior. Your personal stats and skills are not usable in the instance, since you get a new skill bar after the transformation. Damage amount is equal for all players regardless of level.

This stage has 3 waves of “Tomb Robbers” enemies. At the end of the second and the third wave, the enemies become much stronger. During this fight your group should be positioned at the top of the stairs, to the left and to the right, where are the enemies’ spawn points.
