Nulgath the ArchFiend Ultra Boss

New Weekly Challenge Boss, Empowered Rewards, and more! 

WARNING: this weekend's ULTRA Boss is not for the faint-hearted or untrained. Log in and take on one of the toughest Ultra bosses released to date: Nulgath the ArchFiend! /join ultranulgath to begin your battle for dark rewards + ultimate bragging rights!

If you've faced this fan-favorite, fiendish underworld boss in /tercessuinotlim before, then you'll be familiar with your opponent... if not his new attacks and skills. And if you want his rewards, get ready -- you're going to have to FIGHT like never before.

Level 80 Heroes: defeat Nulgath to earn 5 Nulgath Insignia per week, then use them to create the long-awaited Sin of Revontheus weapon (creation cost: 5 Nulgath Insignia)!

Level 95 Heroes: you can use more Nulgath Insignias to upgrade your Sin of Revontheus weapon to deal 51% more damage to ALL monsters!

Upgrade Iconic Nation Armors + Gear

Similar to the Ultra Dage boss, defeating Nulgath the Archfiend will also let you upgrade some of your classic, fan-favorite Nation armors and weapons into end-game boosted versions.
