Dark Knight Hellux Tips

Dark Knight Forum Talk about Spearman, Dragon Knight and Dark Knight

UselessTitle Level 196 Scania Kaiser 4
Recently, I have tried to attempt hellux but, I have came across an big issue when attacking the eyes. Dark impale is unable to hit the eyes. This is a major inconvieinece due to gungnir's descent only being able to attack when in sacrifice or final pact. Added to that, the duriation of sacrifice and/or final pact is lowered due to having to go down to the bottom floor and kill the monsters. So my question is, what is the most time efficient way to defeat the monsters on the bottom as a dark knight and would the Warring States Manifesto skill from sengoku high help in Hellux? Also are there any tips I can have for soloing Hellux as a dark knight?

You should be able to stand in the portal and avoid the eyes' attacks.
I'm currently in the process of finishing the prequests on my DrK, but DI has similar range width wise to RB so it should be able to hit from the portal.

@calabari From what I have experinced, the only way for DI to hit the eyes is if I jump attack

Soloing Hellux is really difficult for a Dark Knight.

Try using a soul summon if you have it before entering the map for mob control (Pink Bean/Hilla/Magnus/Cygnus/Murgoth). Murgoth is the best one to use based on scholtex999's Hellux video. Decent SI and green MPE potions are also recommended in case you don't have 50% buff duration inner ability for sacrifice to last long.

Use Warring States Manifesto only on the gem stage on the middle plat in the middle of the map, when your timer reaches around 3. If you're using only dark impale on this stage, then decent SI or MPE is really needed since dark impale doesn't do enough dpm compared to spamming Gungnir.

@UselessTitle: Maybe try to get a little more buff duration? Do you have a mechanic card? Inner ability?

@jemy313 Thanks for your input but, was there any reason why you didn't use dark thirst in your video and allowed the timer to reach 5? Also do you think Evil Eye Domination would be able to kill the mobs in the bottom while on the middle/top platform?

The drain from dark thirst is something I didn't really need, plus evil eye domination requires beholder summoned, and I need it for Gungnir. I didn't get a chance to try it. I also allowed the timer to reach 5 since it can't be helped during the run; and as mentioned, it's really difficult to solo Hellux ever since the nerf we got.

Alright thank you for your help! Hopefully, I will be able to solo hellux soon

@calabari I'm currently in the process of acquiring a mechanic card and I am working on my inner ability (only 22% buff duriation at the moment).

if you kill it, you will win.

I normally precast beholder, and then clear the jaw without sacrifice.
that way I have up to two casts of sacrifice for the eyes + jewel, and occasionally if required, a strategic suicide for final pact.

its not fun at all to stand at the portal and use jump+impale.
I always get caught by the curse.
theres this video of a dark knight doing a solo, and he somehow evades curses without moving. he only moves to avoid the fist.
i'm not quite sure how he did it.
