When i leveled up to level 30, i got a quest from cyrus drake to go to aquila. so, obviousdly i wanted to check it out. I got there, and stepped on the sigil for mount olympus. No one would help me, so i just went by myself. But the first boss i battled there had over 4000 health!! I mean, for a wizard who just defeated malistaire, no problemo, right? But for level 30 wizards, you'll probably be dead in no time flat. Now i dont know if i was supposed to bring friends or something, but did anyone have this same problem?

You might want to bring a friend of two, specifically so they can heal u, or you can just try on your own. The dungeon was specifically for your range of skills and is difficult so you learn how to do it, but dungeons In general are easier with help from friends. But do whatever u want!! Just have fun.

It's not meant for soloing at level 30, it's designed to be challenging for groups of level 30's working together.

If you could solo it at level 30 without issues, most groups going in would find it too easy.

That dungeon was made for lvl 30 GROUP not lvl 30 solo.

i'm a level 42wizard yes mount olympus is hard but it is made to challenge your wizard definitely the boss you should either bring a life wizard or get alot of rebirth tresure cards and make a designated wizard
to heal

There was always someone to help me. I guess it is level 30 minimum because so much people run the dungeon.

I went with one of my best friends (She's 33 Fire, I'm 30 Storm at the time) and we couldn't defeat the Cyclops'. I think it would suit Level 50 Wizards, not Level 30 Wizards. Would help if I knew a Life Wizard who wasn't a safe chatter that could heal us. I wish I would have chose Life as my secondary school instead of Death. It might help because she is now Level 41, but for all the young Ravenwood Students out there, if you aren't Life, PLEASE take Life as your Secondary School. It will really, really help you a lot in the future, just trust me. Back on topic, we could defeat Apollo Bright One and that Moon School girl (I forgot her name) just fine, but we totally gave up on the Cyclops'. I may have to just contact "The King" (AKA Blaze Lifehammer) so he can help us out...

i can see why it is hard but to defeat the cyclopses you should you all hit attacks of strong single pip attacks but remember to heal when your life is low you should use AOE attacks on the bosses

i am a lvl 50 wizard and even I cant defeat this dungeon by myself. I did bring two friends another lvl 50 and one 41 and still died... again. I think this dungeon is too hard for people ESPECIALLY for lvl 30 wizards for which this was intended for. I think that this defiantly requires a change. this is TOO hard if you ask me. if you are reading this and you got past this dungeon, you are a REALLY GOOD wizard.

I went in the dungeon and it was fairly easy, if you're above lvl 40 it shouldn't be hard. I understand though. The best thing to do is use spells that attack all. GO

My first time through Mount Olympus was far past 30, but here's how I look at it:
Remember Kensington Park (pre-nerf)? That dungeon was also designed for ~Level 30 characters. With 3-on-1 fights against Storm foes with ~2,000 health, it was definitely built for a full team of Level 30s. I look at Mount Olympus the same way. It's sort of a "New Kensington Park", a more significant challenge than the base game presents.

I certainly had the same problem except my quest with aquila started at level 10 or 15...i think anyway i explored saw the 2 headed dragon and went to my first immortal game battle. Why would'nt they send another wizard to help you. I mean seriously ambrose has legs,he's powerful why can't he help or what about teachers because trust me on this one minions won't cut it.

I think it's a bit too hard, as a lvl 45 Sorcerer I only just managed to do it, & that's with a lvl 90 Theurgist helping me. Maybe if KI made Ares cheat less, then I might have done it alone.

It's very hard and i went in with other people everytime I tried it and I'm pretty good at strategizing with the cards i have but no amount of skill can make up for low health I was so excited to go to a new world only to realize I can't complete the first quest is said world so yes it is kinda hard

Mount Olympus was skillfully created to help lvl 30 wizards learn battle strategy and skill and not make it easy to get in and get out, like other lvl 30-40 dungeons. My suggestion would be to try to bring friends and take your time. It makes nothing better to rush through this dungeon. If yolu don't have enough time to do it, then wait until you do. Olympus takes time, effort, and a brain.

Friends :) I had the same problem when I thought I could solo it, then I got some friends together and we beat it. Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to farm.
