Dungeons in Blade & Soul allow players to group up for challenging instanced content. From normal questing, daily challenges, or a desire to obtain rare treasures, you’ll regularly be sent in to defeat a dungeon’s denizens. Currently, dungeons can be categorized into Heroic Dungeons and Mythical Dungeons.
Mythical Dungeons are, unlike Heroic Dungeons, split into different stages, ranging from 1 - 80. Depending on the Mythical Dungeon, the amount of stages can differ.
Initially, all players will begin at stage 1. To see your Demonsbane Stage and XP, access the Demonsbane Scroll on the lower left next to your Unity Rank. To advance, you need Demonsbane XP, which is earned by defeating monsters and bosses in the Mythical Dungeon, as well as successfully clearing each stage. As soon as your Demonsbane XP reaches 100%, you can attempt the next stage. You're also able to play through stages lower than your current rank.
The higher stage you attempt, the more difficult your enemy encounters will be. As a reward, those who conquer the higher floors will receive both Weekly Rewards and Season Rewards.
Heroic Dungeons are split into three difficulties: Easy Mode, Normal Mode, and Hard Mode. These designations indicate how well prepared you and your group should be before entering.
Easy Mode dungeons offer a straightforward challenge for any group and include the ability for particularly well-prepared and confident players the difficult possibility of soloing it. It’s possible to complete an Easy Mode dungeon with fewer than all 6 players, however, a Normal or Hard Mode dungeon will almost always demand a full party to succeed, as the bosses will do more damage and have more health. In addition, while it's possible to fail the mechanics and survive in both Easy Mode and Normal Mode, Hard Mode is not as generous, where failing mechanics can instantly defeat your group. In exchange, Hard Mode dungeons offer vastly increased chances at obtaining rare items for the vastly increased difficulty, and also contain some items that can’t be obtained at all from Easy Mode.
To find other players to tackle dungeons, you can jump into the Cross-Server Dungeon system [F8]. Joining the Cross-Server Dungeon finder takes you into a new lobby where your character is shown among your other party members. You can join with any number of other people, or alone, and use it to fill out any remaining slots. You select what content you’re looking to tackle, and then the game will automatically find other players within your region that are also looking and meet your criteria.
