RAID: Shadow Legends – An In-depth Guide to The Doom Tower

So, we have prepared a detailed guide on the Doom Tower’s mechanics, the resources and rewards provided and some key information that will help you all on your journey to beat the Tower.

Doom Tower Mechanics

Here are some of the major Doom Tower mechanics, reading which will give you a brief idea of what the Doom Tower is all about. It will also help you understand how to approach the Doom Tower and how to clear the content more efficiently.

  • Doom Tower has 120 floors in total. A Boss resides on every 10th floor of the Tower. Therefore, in total, there are 12 Boss Floors. The bosses are rotated every month. Apart from normal rooms and boss floors, there exist special rooms called Secret Rooms. These rooms have specific conditions required to clear them, for example – “Use only rare champions”, etc.
  • The players are provided with 2 different types of keys to enter and progress in the Doom Tower. The 2 keys are – Silver Keys and Golden Keys, respectively. The Gold Keys are used for entering the normal stages of the Tower, whereas, the Silver Keys are specifically used for entering only the Boss stages and Secret Rooms. You get 10 of both types of keys per day after it resets. These keys will only disappear after you complete the stage you used the key for. If you fail the stage, the key will not be used. So far, there is no other method to obtain these keys except the daily reset.
  • The Secret Rooms of the tower function the same way as Boss floors, that is, once you clear them, you can farm them using the remaining silver keys if you want. There are 12 Secret Rooms, and each room has a different condition associated with it. Like every other stage of the Doom Tower, if the stage is failed, the key will not be used from your account.
  • The Doom Tower’s bosses are scalable. This means that fighting the same Boss on a lower stage and the higher stage is different in terms of stats required; however, the mechanics of the Boss remain unchanged.
  •  The rewards are scaled as well from bottom to top. From a measly Ancient Shard to the Mighty Sacred Shard, the rewards are yours to claim.

  • The Secret Rooms also reward you with silver keys. The rewards obtained from higher stages of secret rooms are also better and generally more worth your keys. It is advised that you do not farm Secret Rooms in the early stages but rather wait till you can farm the higher stages to get better rewards.

Doom Tower Boss Mechanics and Tips

Doom Tower has 4 main bosses who are available to fight at the end of every 10 floors.

These Bosses change their positions every month with 1 of them being present on the last floor, i.e., Floor 120.

  • Kuldath The Magma Dragon (Magic Affinity)
  • Sorath The Frost Spider (Void Affinity)
  • Agreth The Nether Spider (Spirit Affinity)

We will present each of these Bosses’ abilities and provide some essential tips and tricks to help you beat them!

Tips for defeating Kuldath:

  • For tanking the boss damage, High HP artifacts/ sets with Immortal and Untouchable are recommended.
  • Champions that can provide Block Debuffs are helpful to block the HP Burns by the Boss.
  • The Boss can be provoked, and hex damage + target can be avoided. Champions that have Provoke in their kits, like Seeker and Umbral Enchantress, are recommended.
  • The Boss can easily kill targets under the Hex effect; hence, any form of damage mitigation buffs like Ally Protection is highly valued in this fight.

Sorath The Frost Spider

Katabatic Winds 

Attacks all enemies. Places a Block Buffs Debuff and a Heal Reduction Debuff for 2 turns on enemies under Freeze Debuff. Places a 30% Decrease SPD Debuff and a 50% Decrease ATK Debuff for 2 turns on enemies that have no Freeze Debuff.

Tips for defeating Sorath:

  • Champions that utilize skills-based on enemy Max HP are very useful since Sorath has high HP. Examples include Coldheart, Royal Guard, etc.
  • Sorath has a unique passive where she will revive if she is not killed by HP Burn; hence, HP burn champions like Drexthar Bloodtwin, Bulwark, Coffin Smasher, Tyrant Ixlimor are essential for this fight.
  • Sorath’s turn meter can be decreased to prevent her from moving and attacking ally champions while giving you enough time to cycle your HP Burn or Healing skills. Hence, champions like Alure, Armiger, Psylar are recommended.
  • It’s also recommended to kill the 2 Spiderlings first, then Sorath. 
  • Leech Buff is also recommended since it will stop the transfer of Debuff.

Agreth The Nether Spider

Envenomed Strand 

Attacks all enemies. Places 5% Poison Debuff for 4 turns. Will repeat the attack 1 time for each Spiderling without any active buffs. The Poison Debuffs cannot be resisted or blocked.

RAID: Shadow Legends – An In-depth Guide to The Doom Tower

Tips for defeating Agreth:

  • Avoid attacking the spider lings and try to use Crowd control skills like Stun or Freeze. Using CC skills will increase the number of poison stacks on them.
  • Champions which utilize skills-based on enemy Max HP are very useful since Agreth has high HP. Examples include Coldheart, Royal Guard, etc.
  • Champions which have cleansing abilities as actives or passive’s are MVP here since Agreth has the ability to inflict 5 stacks of Poison Debuffs on the first turn itself. You want to cleanse these stacks as soon as possible because her skill Tide of Toxins will wipe out your team. Champions like Reliquary Tender, Spirithost and Doompriest are highly recommended.
  • Agreth is not immune to Turn Meter Reduction. Hence, champions like Alure, Armiger are very useful but make sure to have a tanky comp when using this strategy as champions will take heavy damage from the Elder Lurker skill.

Borgoth The Scarab King

Vile Absorption 

Attacks all enemies. Places an extra hit on each enemy for each buff on the target. Each extra hit steals one random buff from enemies that have no Shield buff and removes one random buff from enemies under Shield buff.

30% if Borgoth’s Max HP has been decreased between 20% and 30%.

0% if Borgoth’s Max HP has been decreased more than 30%.

Easy Prey [Passive]

Counterattacks when attacked by an enemy that has no Shield buff.

Almighty Immunity [Passive]

Immune to Stun, Freeze, Sleep, Provoke, Block Cooldown Skills, Fear and True Fear Debuffs. Also immune to HP exchange effects, HP balancing effects and cooldown increasing effects.

RAID: Shadow Legends – An In-depth Guide to The Doom Tower

Tips for defeating Borgoth:

  • Champions that utilize skills-based on enemy Max HP are very useful since Borgoth has high HP. Examples include Coldheart, Royal Guard, etc.
  • Like other bosses, Borgoth is not immune to turn-meter reduction. Hence, champions like Armiger and Allure can be utilized well. 
  • Champion on Destroy Set is essential for this fight. Destroy set permanently reduces enemies Max HP, which is essential for breaking the Spectral Horror Barrier of Borgoth. Even better can be to utilize champions that reduce turn meter like Armiger on a Destroy Set.
  • Champions that put up Counterattack buffs are also useful since they will help you in breaking the Spectral Horror Barrier faster. Be careful though because Borgoth can steal the counterattack buff.
  • Lastly, Shield buff champions are the key to defeating Borgoth. Champions under a Shield buff will not be counterattacked by Borgoth when they attack; hence, it will be easier to survive as the DPS of  Borgoth will be massively reduced.

Doom Tower Secret Rooms

The Secret Rooms are another part of the Doom Tower. Now that enough time has passed, and all the Secret Rooms have been revealed, so have the conditions required to clear them. Secret Rooms can be entered on both the Normal as well as Hard Tower. These rooms require Silver Keys to be entered inside just like Boss Floors. They can be repeatedly farmed till you run out of keys and provide some valuable rewards like Epic-Legendary Champion Shards and Silver Keys. Take note that this is end game content and will require more champions at max level and ascension. Also it will take good level gear and tons of silver to upgrade them. So don’t expect to clear all the rooms in a single day. However, to make progress more faster and to accumulate resources like a pro, you can refer to our resource guide for Raid.
