So we've been doing the Helephant Tower for 4 hours... And we just could not complete it. We're all legendaries too. This is a direct message to Wizard101 to lower how long it takes, and the difficulty. Most people end up quitting after the first boss cause of how long it takes... Then after it are like 7 more floors, until a semi-boss, and then the real boss.. All in all, do not do this until Wizard101 lowers the standards. Right now it is nearly impossible unless you 'no-life' it. We have yet to complete it. I was so excited to do it, so I bought membership just for it.. Worst thing I EVER bought. I want my refund

Hello,

Me and My Team Of Fire, Ice, Death (Me) and Life, died on the last boss, so we just entered again, and on the 3rd try, the life wizard couldn't enter, so it was just a team of Fire, Ice, and Death, all I would recommend for the last boss is, have a storm, or anyone strong, to take care of the minions, if not, just spam melt dispels for the boss's blizzards, I noticed they updated it from the test realm, now the blizzard has gargantuan placed on it, because it did 400-600 damage on us. Well, it took us 3 tries of dying, but we got it, :D Good Luck, and I am glad they made this tower, actually. This is the type of challenge me and my friends were looking for. Good Luck, Buddy!

The Tower of the Helephant is not for the impatient. It may take more than a few tries. I am not a legendary, but have been playing long enough to know that patience is the key to defeating bosses. Some people go right at a boss without even thinking about it. Others plan out their entire attack before even going into the tower. Most people usually use their strongest spells first before going for their smaller spells, but sometimes a small spell is the most important. It's also best to have lots of blades and traps, and even better to have friends with blades and traps that also apply-- say you are Ice and have an ice trap and blade, and your friend is Balance and has Hex and Balanceblade. Here you can do double the damage and get more experiance when the battle is over. But the only way to be able to do things like this, you must first have patience, and that is the most important thing in the whole Spiral.

:-D Thank you for reading :-D

I really cant say anything cause I am only level 51 but what I do know is since ur a legend u obviously did big ben so that means u should have some experience with this type of stuff. And since u said it was really hard just keep doing big ben as practice and try equipping new spells, just because someones a high lvl doesnt mean other spells cant be used. Try prisms also if u need help with someone who resists and if they put -80 on that school buy a different wand. But most importantly get gear that gives u lots of critical and health. Good Luck!!

Tower of Helephant is very difficult if you don't know what you're doing.
My tips would be have a life with full life boost. A storm/myth and the other two schools doesn't matter. Because having a life is a big deal when your at the end, since the blizzard will be cast every time there are full three minions. And plus the minion does earthquake so no need for blade nor traps. The first bosses is not that hard than the last one. I would recommend having unstoppable in your treasure deck, cause the Minotaur boss will cast smokescreen every three rounds. So if you fizzle, even without the smokescreen you will get skeletal dragon only. My plan would be to take out those two ninja quickly, cause they use sandstorm a lot. And then the Minotaur Boss. And last but not least the Death Boss. So after you kill the Minotaur Boss, the death boss will cast Leviathan every two round to his intent target which will most likely be the one he's targeting before until you die. And then moving on to the next person. So GET STORM SHIELD. heal, keep on attacking, and REMEMBER, you can always get back in AS LONG as you do not switch realms, quit, nor let anyone in with you. But you can learn more about Tower of Helephant by just google Wizard101 Guide to Tower of Helephant. Good luck and PLAY SMART. Do not go in with people who you do not TRUST and will slow you down or worse, kill you. Go with a trusted, inform, well coordinated team and get it done. Do not want to go back to the first boss again cause you lose to the last boss. Good Luck.

You know, this Tower is Optional!

People always whine and complain and get things made too easy... Form a strategy, just because you are legendary, does not mean you have earned it, or that you know what you are doing...

This dungeon is a good challenge and takes a good team with a strategy to defeat it easily... It is truly a fun dungeon...

And it can only take an hour to defeat, if you have a plan and know what you are doing...

Really now!
Why do people complain about this so much? I just finished it and it was difficult, but not nearly as hard as people said it would be. And it is a SIDE QUEST. IF it was a main, i could understand, but SIDE? really.

I really love the tower just the way it is. I personally love challenges thats what makes this game fun. The way you get back in I do not like though. I was at the last boss on my myth and I had 3 friends with me another myth a storm and a fire. I went first so ya know who died first :). Anyways, I tried to get back in fast and couldn't. So now I could not complete the tower. All my beef would be about is that when your with a team and you die then the tower should let you back in to finish. Oh yea I am a legendary all mine are. I have played 3 yrs now and love Wizard101. Please take into consideration about this Wizard. TY!

I agree that we should be able to enter with no problem after we get defeated. This has happened to me every time which is why I didn't pass the tower. The tower is is pretty challenging and i only know two friends who have gotten to the last boss and lost because of this. I wish kingsisle would try to fix this problem, and maybe make the tower easier :D

Do you still have to use dispels to keep from having your blades stolen and placed on the death boss? But, getting hit with a bone dragon because you or your pet fizzle is where it seems to have gone too far. Is the gear even worth it?

For the final battle, my team didn't use dispels because the pips were too precious. Your health didn't last long. In the end, we just blasted away as quickly and powerfully as we could using a lot of area spells to get rid of the minions as we were weakening the boss. Then flee, get healthy, and run back as fast as you can, going through multiple empty levels down to the final battle, hoping at least one of your teammates has survived long enough for you to rejoin so they can get healthy, too.

I ran out of potions before we even got to the final battle. So I just played a game of Potion Motion as quickly as I could to return as fast as I can.

Bear in mind, you can't teleport into the tower. You have to use the rope each time and then scurry through the rooms. There is a room with red health balls, but that got empty fast. They don't regenerate.

The final boss has over 21,000 health.

Try checking wizard101central as they have a pair of companion guides that explain exactly how to survive this dungeon. To all you who complain it is to hard. This is a completely optional dungeon for those of us who love that extra challenge. For those of you who won't read the guides dispels are you friend in here.

This tower is a joke and it is absolutely no fun what so ever. The folks at KI know that we like to fight cheating bosses, which is a challenge and fun to do, but this has taken cheating to a whole new level. I can not see the reasoning behind the last boss. He completely wipes you out in no time with his constant hits back to back, that's not a challenge KI that's insanity.
No wonder no one wants to do this tower. I won't do it again, it's just not worth the aggrivation nor the time. My skills at playing the game are great, with six legendary wizards I know how to play the game quite well, but fighting that last boss can't be called playing. What's the skill?

The Tower of the Helephant was to test your abilities.

You don't have to do it if you don't want to.

I beat the last boss easy. Please dont complain about this. There have been a bajillion posts about the helephant tower. All the posts say bad things, all the replies say good things. And noone wants to do this tower?!
There are so many people who want to do the tower that they have actually tried to intrude on other wizards battles! EVERYONE wants to do this tower. Dont do it again if you dont want to, but dont tell us about it! We dont wanna hear it!!!!!

sigh. OK this is a happier complaint than some of the others. but it comes down to the same thing. IF it is challenging, look for new ways to defeat it! I had just as much trouble as anyone else when i took on the warehouse! But 15 tries later, i beat it! Instead of asking for the tower to be easier, ask for help! or directions on how to defeat Lyon or any of the other bosses! Dont just say "it is too hard, make it easier" and leave it at that!
