Wartune Patch 6.5 is fully rolled out to all servers and now I’m able to tell if what I thought was a happy accident on the test server actually works on the main servers as well. Spawning Death Zones bosses will be important for collecting Breakthrough Orbs. Though Breakthrough Orbs won’t be used for quite awhile until you perfect and animate several levels on your first Holy Sword, you’ll want to collect as many as you can for when the time comes to level up your Holy Sword’s skill.
How to Spawn as Many Death Zone Bosses as You Need
There’s a nice trick for getting Death Zone Bosses to spawn as many times as you need them. Here are the key things you need to know:
There’s a chance for you to spawn a Death Zone Boss whether you win or lose a fight.
If you have not killed any of the Time Portal bosses (E through SSS difficulty), you can “Reset” without losing your reset attempt.
As a result, it’s easiest to take care of all of your Death Zone Tokens (attempts), before you try to kill any of the portal bosses.
Do this by equipping weak sylphs to your team, attacking one of the portal bosses and dying quickly. Check if a Death Zone Boss has spawned and kill it if it has.
Once all three of your sylphs are dead, reset, and you’ll be able to reassign them and continue this process.
See the video for a full illustration and proof that this works.
Additional Time Portal Tips
Use the trick previously explained to test the limits of your sylphs without risking reset attempts. Attack higher difficulty bosses until you know which ones you’ll be able to beat.
When you trigger a Death Zone Boss, attack it first yourself before sharing. Rewards are based on how much of the boss you kill. You’ll want the most Breakthrough Orbs you can get without having to use additional tokens.
If you have one, equip your Moon Guardian Titan in the fourth or fifth Titan slotwhen attacking Death Zone bosses, you’ll live through the “final” hit which would otherwise kill your hero.
Equip Blessed Electro and/or Blessed Water to recover health. This is particularly important for electro and fire elemental sylphs, since they don’t have any active skills that recover HP.
