Lord Nightshade Boss Rematch


Tired of your max level wizards not being able to farm for spellements? Looking for some new challenging end game content? Rematches are here to give you exactly that! All 5 arc one final bosses are back with more power and cheats then ever. In this article we will be covering the Lord Nightshade rematch.

Obtaining A Rematch


Rematches can be found from a new vendor in the Arena, Raquel. She will provide you with rematches from the end of world bosses from the first arc: Lord Nightshade, Krokopatra, Meowiarty, Jade Oni, and Malistaire. These new rematches will also require some crafting. Luckily, the recipes are not too difficult. For Lord Nightshade you will need 50 perfect onyx, 60 red mandrake, and 4 blood moss. Raquel also sells recharges for these gauntlets. Recharges will allow you to fight the boss again without paying the full price for a new gauntlet item. Lord Nightshade’s recharge will cost 50 perfect onyx, 25 red mandrake, 2 blood moss, and a Lord Nightshade rematch trophy. The trophy can be obtained by beating the Lord Nightshade rematch. After beating Lord Nightshade, go back to your house and pick up the trophy where you originally placed the rematch.

Level Bands


The fight will scale to the owner’s level. For example, if the owner is level 50 and they go in with three level 150 Wizards you will be given the level 50 version of the fight.

Cheats


Unlike when you fought him in Wizard City, Lord Nightshade will have a ton of new cheats to slow you down. His main cheat mechanic centers around an Equalize bubble he casts at the start of the fight.

“Your doom approaches”

At the start of the battle, Lord Nightshade will cast an Equalize bubble that caps all damage at 500.

“Closer…”

At the start of turn 3, Lord Nightshade will cast another equalize bubble that caps all damage at 1,000.

“And closer…” 

At the start of turn 5, Lord Nightshade will cast another equalize bubble that caps all damage at 2,000.

“It’s almost here”

At the start of turn 7, Lord Nightshade will cast another equalize bubble that caps all damage at 4,000.

“Your doom is now”

At the start of turn 11, Lord Nightshade will cast a 75% doom and gloom bubble removing the damage cap. This will cause the deer knight at the end of the turn to deal 100,000 damage and end the fight. 

“Tardiness is unacceptable”

If a wizard joins the fight late, Lord Nightshade will cast a ship of fools that deals 100,000 base damage. This spell will be capped by the equalize bubble. 

“Kneel! For I am the harbinger of your demise!”

At the end of every turn, Lord Nightshade will cast a moon deer knight that deals 100,000 base damage with no DOT.

“You wish to hasten your doom?”

If the bubble is changed, Lord Nightshade will cast 3 100% indemnity shields. The bubble will not be changed, meaning the fight will end when Nightshade kills your team with his 100,000 damage deer knight at the end of the turn. 

Strategy


While this fight can seem very difficult, when broken down it can easily be done in 3 turns. Using the spell Nightbringer, you will be able to nullify the bubble cheat and make this fight much more simple. Here is a strategy that I was able to use to beat nightshade in 3 turns. I used this strategy on my storm with 175% damage and 38% pierce.  I was able to do around 45,000 damage in one run even with a -40% weakness so having a little less damage and pierce will work just fine.

Support 1 Support 2 Support 3 (can also use dark pact or any different blades) Hitter
Round 1 Elemental Blade Feint Storm blade Frenzy
Round 2 Sharpened Elemental Blade Potent Feint Sharpened Storm blade Nightbreaker 3 pip hit
Round 3 Tc Elemental Blade/other Elemental Blade Tc Feint/other type of Feint Tc Storm blade/other Storm blade 2 pip bubble

Rewards


Lord Nightshade will drop Rank 1 and 2 Spellements. Lord Nightshade will also drop one of the new cantrip spells To The Commons. If upgrading is needed in your guild house, azoth can also be dropped from this rematch. Similar to other housing gauntlet bosses, he will also drop this trophy. However, unlike previous gauntlet bosses, this one can be used to recharge the gauntlet, which means you can craft it for a lower cost.

Conclusion


Overall, these new rematches have been very fun to try out and definitely have provided some challenging content with some sweet spellement rewards!

  • “At the start of turn 11, Lord Nightshade will cast *aa* 75% doom”

    I think you accidentally typed in 2 a’s. Just wanted to point that out.

    “I used this strategy on my storm with 175% damage and 38% *peirce*.”

    I believe that this is intended to say “pierce”.

    “go back to your house and pick up the *trophey* where you originally placed the rematch.”

    I believe you meant to say “trophy”.

    “Just like gauntlets, the fight will scale to your Wizards’ level.”

    According to Wizard101 Central, this is not true. They say that it scales to the level of the owner (see attached link), meaning that a level 150 and 3 level 1s will still get the highest difficulty provided that the level 150 is the owner.
