Kessex Peak vanquished

  • Complete exploration of this area contributes approximately 1.1% to the Tyrian Cartographer title.
  • This area has only one resurrection shrine.
  • Snares help defeat Tachi, who frequently kites and slows your team with Imagined Burden
  • Minion Master caution: The Apprentices cast Verata's Gaze; they can quickly take over your own allies.
  • You can weaken (and often defeat) Verata and his Shepherds using ranged attacks and skills; stand near the bottom of the the cult's base (marked by yellow dot on the map to the right).
  • You can build up your Morale by repeatedly defeating Rage Maulhoof in The Black Curtain: the minotaur boss is located next to the Kessex Peak portal. Kill him, zone/rezone, and repeat until the entire party is at 10%.
  • To receive credit for the Vanquisher title track in this area you must defeat 168-202 monsters in Hard Mode.
    • The number of cultists (and bosses) is reduced by approximately 20 foes if Villainy of Galrath is active.
