How to beat the boss!

spacer

Kuldath is by far the easiest of the Doom Tower bosses, for one simple reason – you can stop him from doing ANY of his abilities.

Unlike any other boss in the game, you can control Kuldath by provoking him which makes the fight a complete joke. All you need to do is bring in 1-2 provoke champions who can keep high uptime of the debuff.

If you’re unable to provoke Kuldath, he will hit incredibly hard and place hexes and HP burns on your team, which he can activate with his A2.

Things to avoid:

  • Do not bring HP burn to this encounter, Kuldath will instantly remove any HP burn and replace them with a 15% Continuous heal buff.
  • Unkillable, shields and Block Damage buffs are largely irrelevant in this encounter if you’re not provoking him, as if you have a Hex debuff, Kuldath will ignore all these buffs.
  • If you cleanse Hex from an ally, the cleanser will receive a Hex debuff for 4 turns, so be careful with cleansing.

Team Compositions

Strategy 1: Provoke and Ignore Mechanics!

The whole idea of this strategy is just to permanently keep a Provoke debuff on Kuldath, for the entire fight while you whittle it down. To make sure that your provoker(s) can survive you may want to bring some healing in your team to make sure they don’t fall over!

This is by far the smoothest method for the fight, as you prevent it from using any of its abilities.

 

The All-Star:

Warchief (Skinwalkers, Force)

Warchief is incredible for this boss, due to his ability to provoke it permanently from both his A1 and A2 – He is also not weak affinity for either version of the Magma Dragon (currently) while that doesn’t mean that a Spirit affinity version won’t come into Doom Tower one day.

He can single-handed lockout the boss for the whole fight, if he’s fast enough + has the required accuracy, all you need to do is stack up his defensive stats and run some sustain in your team with him.

Viable replacements in this team:

The healers in this team (Bad El-Kazar/Scyl) can be replaced by any champion who can provide sustained healing for your provoker.
LydiaStag Knight, Madame Serris, Tayrel, Uugo 
Iron BragoAltan, Sepulcher Sentinel

As mentioned any provoker will fill Warchief’s spot, however, he is the best option – of course, we do understand not everybody has access to him.
