Having analyzed a large amount of videos relating to the newest Apocalypse Nest in Dragon Nest, I come to a conclusion based on my subjective judgment: Clerics will go downhill, but archers and sorceresses will spring up in this instance.
Leave aside bosses first, stages in the Apocalypse Nest are almost Level 39. If only players familiarize themselves with the stages, any group can go through safely. All stages have a common characteristic that oceans of monsters will besiege players, so groups containing archers will be more efficient.
Let’s get down to the key point: the final boss in the Apocalypse Nest
Different from the Manticore, the final boss in the Apocalypse Nest has obviously high physical defense and high light resistance, and can launch almost magical attacks. In point of DPS, attacks with dark attributes, critical strikes and magical attacks enjoy an advantage.
Therefore, as far as I am concerned, the classes who can deal the most DPS to the final boss are as follows: Bow Masters > Force Users > Elemental Lords > Warriors > Clerics
Don’t you think warriors are underestimated? I admit, they have high physical attack, high stiff effect, high stun, but they are bad at critical strike. It is certain that the final boss in the Apocalypse Nest cannot be stunned and have higher physical defense than magical one. The stiff effect has no much efficacy for the boss, either. The only way can warriors increase their damage is to take along a weapon with dark attributes. On the contrary, bow masters and force users have high dark attributes, critical strike and magical attack. Without question, they must be the main forces in the Apocalypse Nest.
Let’s move to survival after talking about attacks
After consuming the first three HP bars, the final boss begins to drop numerous paws when it only has two HP bars left. Medium and long ranged classes gain the upper hand then, for melee classes are more likely to be caught by paws. Things are worse for warriors, because they are too close to the boss and have poor AOE skills. No matter they attack the boss or paws, they are bound to be captured.
At that moment, bow masters, force users and elemental lords will play a crucial role, Thanks to their long-range and piercing attacks as well as AOE skills. They can assault the boss while sweeping paws. I have to say elemental lords are really excellent at that time. Their diversified and continuous AOE skills and strong attack help a lot in clearing paws.
I can predict that when the final boss has the last two HP bars, namely, it starts to release paws, if females in any group die, it is impossible for males to pass through the stage.
The Apocalypse Nest can be said to be an end to clerics.
In my opinion, the most tragic group should be made up of four priests. They can just scratch the boss with their light attacks, causing no severe damage. Paws all over the screen will break down their shields thoroughly.
P.S.: I am looking forward to a video on 4 melee classes conquering the Apocalypse Nest, after all, the theory can be only sustained by facts.
