Next Friday: Grimskull Returns

HELLO BOILS AND GHOULS, Immortal Joe here. On Friday, November 10th, Grimskull invites you to his newest dungeon, the GAOL OF ETERNAL TORMENT AND MISERY!


According to the brochure in his gift shop, Grimskull is *ahem* "The master of the world's most evil, vile, death trap filled dugeons. If that doesn't cut it... play through the /doomvault map. It's easier to explain by doing.


If you aren't familiar with dungeons, you can read about them here. However, there are some key differences with Grimskull's newest dungeon:

  • This is a ONE PLAYER dungeon, so you will have to escape it yourself!
  • This is a high level, high difficulty dungeon that's comparable to the final fights of the /infernalarena map.
  • The dungeon will be filled with Grimskull's shenanigans, though this time they're more so focused on monster mechanics, rather than the trap filled rooms found in his Doom Vault.

Entry Requirements

The Gaol of Eternal Torment of Misery is not for the faint of heart. In order to enter it, you'll need to have met the following requirements:

  • Must have completed /doomvaultb
  • Be at least level 80
  • Have the Smite enhancement from the /forge map
  • Have the Scythe of Azalith from /infernalarena in your possession

Previous challenge areas haven't had much of an entry barrier aside from a level requirement. In the future, we'd like to introduce other entry requirements to challenge areas so that the expectations of their difficulty are better set ahead of time.


There'll be rewards all right. When you complete the dungeon, you'll earn Grimskull Trolling rep (yep, you can finally get it) which can be used to obtain:

  • Exclusive gear
  • The Grim Weapon Enhancement (This has always just been a level 100 Fighter Enhancement with a few bonus stats, but you can get it know if you'd really like)
  • The best-worst helmet enhancement in the game???

Alina note: For heroes who don't meet the requirements for this new dungeon, we've got more rewards planned for the original dungeon, plus a few more sweet treats in our Harvest maps.

And still to come: 

  • Chibi Maid pets in the Featured Gear Shop + on the Noble Ghost
  • Ghostly Kiwi pet on the Stymphmalion Terror
  • Gothic Necromancer Sally set 
  • 15th Birthday Badge
