Introducing the Catacombs, a brand new PK enabled public raiding dungeon, packed with bosses and treasures.
The Catacombs is a brand new PvP enabled public raiding dungeon located in the new zone Sandstorm Desert, and is home to new raid bosses and elite monsters. The fact that it's public means there are no restrictions on the amount of players allowed entry at any one time. You can form a full raid party of 18 players, or even two.
Bosses do similar or less damage to existing level 85 world bosses but have a shorter 10 minute enrage timer, so you need as much damage as possible to defeat them.
