They pull you right off the sidewalks! You cannot get past them...so you end up battling over and over and over.

Then the second to the last battle we did not know to go up the stairs! We were so excited that was a short battle that we went on to the end to find a locked gate. Hmmm. Remember Golem Tower...same idea folks!

So we did this with 3! I think if you could get a group of 4 it would be easier.

Hint: get one person to run to the next step, then everyone else teleport to that person. Splitting up spells disaster in most cases but I think you would be less likely to get pulled into the street....unless that is part of the instance?

Anyone who thinks this game is not challenging enough should just go try the Sunken City!



SUNKEN CITY was WAY to hard 12-28 it toke me AND I STILL DIE if my friend was not there i would be still be doing it


by the way 33 fire me

I don't really see what the big deal is with sunken city I did it at level 12 with just two other people and the only time they did pull us from the sidewalk was when we were standing on the edge

I guess we did have an advantage though, I am a fierce storm wizard but the other two were both healers and I think they were both level 16 but still it was easy and fun

I am Alex Dragonbreaker level 42 Storm. I did Sunken City back at level 30 and it was hard even with three friends because one of us kept getting into battles :(. If you get into a battle run off the street the second it is over. Also it is a good idea to assign roles to your team. Since Storm and Fire do a lot of damage I would reccomend having a wizard from those two schools as the attackers, someone from Life for healing, and someone from Balance to shield and power up.

As everyone was saying not to Sunken City till you are level 20, I sure did the whole thing at lvl 17 [fire] ( My first Wizard ) with another friend who was 19 [death]. But that was like about 3-4 months back, so I am not really sure about some other details that happened. :-)

It took me 6 tries, and finally I made it through with 3 others to help. Just getting past the first part is really frustrating, as they suck you off the sidewalks!! It took me 2.5 hours, but I made it finally! Go in with a group, you can't make it alone.

If you are in Sunken City, you should be in a group of 4. (Or 3.) Also, if there is nobody to help you, go to Sunken City on your own, and mark your location at places you might think you will lose. If you lose, all you do is heal and go to your marked location. I have finished Sunken City, with a friend, doing it. Hope my tips will help you.

if you think sunken city is hard wait till kensington park. there are people with 2000 hp running around and they team up with 3 people. I even used 3 level 50 henchmen and I lost. Wait till you are a grandmaster for kensington. wait for adept for sc

Here's some tips on how to pick a great group



1: Have a 2 wizard that go to destruction schools like Death , Fire , Storm and ect. They can be in charge of defeating the enemies.

2: Have a Healer with you so you are always have maximum health. Remember that your well being of your wizard matters just as much as defeating the enemy.

3: Have a Shield-Person . It could either be a Balance or Life Wizard.
That person is in charge of putting shields on the group.

P.S: Thank you for the tips, Professor Greyrose. They helped a lot.

2.Bring a Level 49,Level 48,and a Level 47 if you are
3.Bring healing spells
4.Use shields to lower enemies attacks and traps to boost your attack
5.Bring Potions

i dont no if this happens on purpose,accident,glitch or what but when i'm on the edge of the side walk like liderly running into the houses on the side not to get into a battle i get into one i mean how!?!? it makes me so mad i flee and then never come back its so frustrating! :x

Here's the little thing on sunken city. If enemies SEE you, not TOUCH you will get pulled into battle. So from what I've heard, hide behind trees, doorways, and when their back is turned RUN LIKE YOU MEAN IT! I'm a level 16 balance student. Tried sunken city once and epicly failed. My friend went away right after first battle.

I'm a 19 fire/death wizard and I made it solo to the tower but one of the gates won't open even though I killed all the mobs. Do I have to do something else before the next level will open, or is it bugged?

We started looking for third key to the final boss ghoul. There is third castle where it is which had Pirate Skull, and after we defeated second floor the doors to the third floor didn't open. Then we are stuck and didn't know what to do next. Quest helper show us to go to the door but it locked.

I have a tip... You should have 4 or 3 people. I completed sunken city today and this is how i did it :)


I got some freinds and if we had low health we would go to the commons and we would get health and then teleport back and when finished it at the end there were me and 1 of my freinds left and she died and I had to complete it by myself and I did :)


3 more things I should say... 1 In the beginning you automatically get sucked into a battle so be careful[you will no mater what you will] 2 you should go in with 1,560 to 2,350 health. 3 in the last 2 battles where you have to get the key there are 5 or 6 rooms I cant remember.[i think 5]

so I hope you can defeat the sunken city and if you want me to help you im Nicholas Battlesword im usually in different worlds.

GOOD LUCK!
