From DFO World Wiki

Dungeons are areas in which you attempt to find the boss room and defeat the monsters you encounter on the way. Every new dungeon room that you enter uses 1 Fatigue Point. If you enter with a party, EXP will be multiplied at the end and then split amongst all members.

Defeating the boss in the boss room will automatically finish the dungeon, all other enemies will count as defeated and give EXP.

With the Great Metastasis, monsters now have their HP scaled according to the number of Party members. However, this mostly applies for the new dungeons.

Dungeon Types

There are different types of dungeons in DFO:

  • Normal: Your normal dungeons. No entry fees and few gimmicks. Defeat the boss to clear the dungeon.
  • Scenario: Dungeons during Epic Quests progression. Has unique map layout and monsters depending on the current progression of the Epic Quest.
  • Special: The final dungeon of each dungeon area (with the exception of Mt. Kulun). Requires 8 FP to enter, but does not use any more FP while traversing through the dungeon. There are minor gimmicks in certain rooms depending on the dungeon. Clearing the dungeon for Feat quests will net a special title.
  • Otherverse: Entry level endgame dungeons. They have entry restrictions and have gimmicks in nearly every room. Notably hard due to many rooms causing Instant Death if not cleared correctly. Otherverse dungeons operate off of Exorcism Parameter and drop Chronicle gear, including set pieces which grants powerful set bonuses. Otherverse dungeons use the Infinite difficulty system, allowing the player to access a higher difficulty for each difficulty cleared.
  • Ancient: Endgame dungeons. They require an entry fee and have dangerous gimmicks. These dungeons usually require a strategy in order to get through them in one piece. Ancients can drop Unique equipment not found elsewhere. There are Limited quests which require Ancient dungeon runs, and will reward with materials used to buy Legendary equipment. Ancient dungeons use the Infinite difficulty system, allowing the player to access a higher difficulty for each difficulty cleared.
  • Normal Anton: Current highest difficulty endgame dungeons. These dungeons require a great understanding of mechanics for each boss fight, coupled with high levels of equipment, in order to get through. The 5 Normal Anton dungeons must be done in a specified order, starting with Source of the Black Smoke and ending with Black Volcano. There is a 12 Life Token Usage Restriction for each dungeon that is shared with party members. Normal Anton monsters do not scale according to the amount of people in the party, thus advocating 4 player parties. Normal Anton monsters only drop loot once per FP reset (at 9:00 UTC).
  • Tower: Refers to dungeons in the Valley of Fallen Souls. These dungeons are generally endurance matches against APCs or powerful enemies. Does not consume FP, but has a daily entry restriction.

Dungeon Difficulty Settings

Only the Normal difficulty level is initially unlocked when you gain access to a new dungeon. You must first meet certain requirements in order to unlock higher difficulty levels. Once you have unlocked a difficulty, that difficulty is unlocked for all your characters.

Normal Difficulty.png Normal Normal is the initial difficulty for all dungeons. To gain initial access to a dungeon you must reach the minimum level required, clear a prior dungeon, or accept a certain epic quest.
Expert Difficulty.png Expert Expert is the second available difficulty and can be unlocked once you clear the dungeon's Normal mode with an A rank or higher. Enemies gain a small boost in hit rate and HP while you have a small drop in hit rate. Monsters with special effects will appear more frequently.
Master Difficulty.png Master Master is the third available difficulty and can be unlocked once you clear the dungeon's Expert mode without using Life Tokens with an S rank or higher without being attacked more than 20 times. It is only available in Antwer Canyon dungeons and beyond. Enemies have a moderate boost in hit rate and health while you have a moderate drop in hit rate. Monsters with special effects will appear more frequently than on Expert.
King Difficulty.png King King is the fourth available difficulty and can be unlocked once you clear the dungeon's Master mode without using Life Tokens with an SSS rank without being attacked more than 10 times. It is only available in Antwer Canyon dungeons and beyond. Enemies have a great boost in hit rate and health while you have a large drop in hit rate. Monsters with special effects will appear more frequently than on Master.
Hero Difficulty.png Slayer Slayer is the fifth available difficulty and can be unlocked once you clear the dungeon's King mode without using Life Tokens with an SSS rank without being attacked more than 5 times. It is only available in Time Gate dungeons and beyond. Enemies have a massive boost in hit rate and health while you have an even larger drop in hit rate. Monsters with special effects will appear more frequently than on King.
- Hell Special mode that allows you to fight powerful enemies for the chance to get Epic items. Hell Mode features a room with a pink boss icon somewhere on the map. Once you reach the icon, there will be a locked portal from Hell. Every time you hit it a monster may spawn. Once all the monsters are spawned and eliminated, hit it a few more times and then the Hell Party will spawn. See Hell Mode for more in-depth information.

Rewards

  • After the boss is defeated two rows of reward cards that might contain gold and/or equipment will appear. The number of bosses and mini-bosses that were defeated are added up and increase the chance of receiving rare items along with the gold.
    • the player will have three seconds in which to choose one card from each of the two rows (a total of two cards, one regular, one gold).
      • the player can choose to only turn over one normal card or both the normal and gold cards.
    • There is one card in each row that contains nothing regardless of how many enemies are defeated.
      • The first row's cards are free. The second row requires a gold amount that varies depending on the dungeon and is listed on the card.
    • There is a possibility of obtaining rare equipment from the cards that are unavailable elsewhere.
      • See the Dungeon Drop Guide for information about dungeon locations that might drop items in the level range you are interested in.
    • During some events, the middle row may open up, allowing for an additional card to be obtained (up to three max).

Ranks

As of Act V, your rank is now calculated by the Combo Rate. Basically, in order to get a high rank, you or your party needs to constantly keep hitting the enemies to create long combos. The longer the combo, the more the Combo Rate will grow. The higher your total Combo Rate, the better your rank.

End Dungeon Experience Bonus

Players will receive experience at the end of every dungeon. The base experience is the total experience from killing monsters. The experience is then boosted by a set percentage based on several factors:

Rank

Extra EXP is gained depending on your dungeon Rank. A higher Combo Rate increases the Rank.
