W101 Lambent Fire – Skeleton Key Boss


The summer 2022 update began a  massive change in Wizard101’s Skeleton Key bosses. Wooden and stone keys are being phased out and gold keys will be the primary way to unlock all the new key bosses. Gold keys will mainly be found through events and as drops from existing key bosses. The update has introduced 10 new key bosses. Four of these are brand new, while the other six are old key bosses revamped with a higher difficulty. One of the revamped Skeleton Key Bosses is a boss located in Crystal Caves – Lambent Fire, let’s check him out in this article!

Boss Location


Lambent Fire is a boss in Avalon, that is located in the Crystal Caves, very close to the entrance. He’s hiding behind a door that requires a Gold Skeleton Key to enter.  He has quite a few cheats, and is supported by three minions – who also cheat.

The Fight


  • Tier 4 – Levels 110-150 – Lambent Fire is Rank 20 and has 20,000 health. The minions are Rank 19 and have 3,510 health.

Cheats and Battle Process


Lambent Fire will cast Fire Spear on himself everytime he uses a damage spell.

Casting universal traps like Hex, Curse or Feint will make him cast an Immolate on the caster. 

He also dislikes any damage-boosting blades – including school specific and universal blades, he will cast a Brimstone Revenant on the reciever of the blade.

When the message below is displayed, one of the minions casts Bad Juju on random wizard.

The minions can also cheat-cast Sacrifice on the boss.

They can also use Dark Pact (the old single 30% version).

Starting on Round 2, the first minion will cast its natural attack on random target and then sacrifices itself with Immolate. This continues until all the minions are either sacrificed or defeated.

After one or more minions are defeated, Lambent Fire will randomly re-summon one by one.

Duel Strategy


Since this battle barely changed, the strategy is same as the one used for any boss battle. Blade the hitter and then use an AOE to one-shot both boss and the minions. Hoverwer due to boss’ constant Brimstone Revenant spam combined with the pierce blade it’s advised to bring a tank / healer to your team. They can keep both the hitter and other wizards ‘healthy’ throught the whole battle.

Rewards


Lambent Fire can drop around 16 spellements from the Knight’s Spellemental Pack every fight. He can also occasionally drop some gear from the said pack.

  • So just to be clear, does this really mean i can’t farm Loremaster for deer knight spellments/spell anymore? Ill never have that spell. Its trapped behind a skeleton key boss now. RIP all the farming i been doing lol.

    • Correct. Your options for Deer Knight spellements are Lambent Fire, the Knight’s Spellement Pack, or the Deluxe Spellement Pack. Personally, I recommend just crafting the spell.

  • This is just a nitpick but I’ve never understood why people refer to spears as pierce blades. Just always seemed awkward and out of place to call damage blades “blades” and spears “piece blades”, like it’s assuming that people won’t know the difference otherwise. Just call them what they actually are: spears, rather than seemingly jump through hoops to justify not calling them spears. Again it’s just a nitpick but one that’s always bothered me.

  • With all due respect, I feel like I could contribute a lot to this guide. Fire wizards are main ones farming this dungeon, and yet guides often seem to give strategies that don’t involve them. I have a 2 turn strategy that works specifically best with fire wizards, so let me know where I can send some of my ideas! 😀

    • Hi Luke,

      This guide could really use an update indeed! You can communicate on us further regarding this either via email: finalbastion101@gmail.com or our discord server (links above).
