The launch of Aquila in Wizard101 introduces three new dungeons, Mount Olympus, Atlantea and Tartarus. This guide will solely focus on Atlantea and the main battles that lie within to help prepare you for what is to come.  They make sure to cover all of the bosses, cheats, and give suggestions on the best way to crunch through this dungeon at blazing speeds!


Hermes Winged

The first NPC you will meet in the Atlantea Dungeon is Hermes Winged Wayfarer. Placing a teleport marker next to him will be extremely convenient. After the first four fights, you’ll be returning to Hermes in order to progress further. Always keep a mark next to him to save yourself the running, and eliminate your chances of getting pulled into a battle on accident.

Another note about this dungeon is that friends cannot port in to help you. Have a team ready before you start. Do not log out or you will have to start over. You’ll be able to run back in if you die or flee, but don’t exit the dungeon any other way, or you’ll lose your progress!

Voracious Legionnaires

Health: 3,040

Rank & school: Rank 11 Fire Elite

Your first task will be to defeat 3 Voracious Legionnaires. This is a straight-forward fight against fire mobs. Watch out for Efreet if you’re going second. Apart from that you should be fine.



Health: 10,880

Rank & school: Rank 11 Death Boss

In the second fight, Lamia has a few cheats, but they are not game-changing. This is also a relatively “normal” fight.

Minions: Storm Shark

Health: 2,320

Rank & school: Rank 11 Storm Elite

  • Casts 35% Doom and Gloom (bubble cannot be changed)
  • If you don’t try to replace the bubble, Lamia casts Scarecrow every 4 rounds. After 30 rounds, Lamia casts Scarecrow regardless. Your best bet is to try to defeat quickly.


Arion Spiny Stallion

Health: 9,880

Rank & school: Rank 11 Life Boss

The third battle is a normal boss fight. Life boss with Balance minions. No cheats.

Minions: Scaled Eques

Health: 2,880

Rank & school: Rank 11 Balance Elite


Akheilos the Contriver

Health: 10,560

Rank & school: Rank 11 Myth Boss

Also no cheats in the fourth battle. Just watch out for Earthquake.

Minions: Storm Shark

Health: 2,320

Rank & school: Rank 11 Storm Elite


The Sirens

Throughout this dungeon you will encounter the Sirens that will task you with figuring out a puzzle. It’s pretty simple! You will need to step on the buttons to activate the blocked pipes in an organ. Starting on the left side, near the lever, the correct buttons are 1, 3, and 4. Finally, pull the lever and you can progress further.

Lost Maiden

Health: 9,920

Rank & school: Rank 11 Balance Boss

The fifth battle (or sixth, if you fought the Sirens) is also straight-forward. Balance boss with Life and Death minions.

Minion: Boatswain McGee

Health: 1,920

Rank & school: Rank 11 Life Elite

Minion: Chief Mate McGurk

Health: 2,050

Rank & school: Rank 11 Death Elite


Atlantean Trierarchs

Health: 2,240

Rank & school: Rank 11 Ice Elite

Your sixth task is a regular mob fight vs Ice Mobs. They like to cast legion shield, tower shield, and absorbs. Having a friend with Quake helps here.


Poseidon Earth Shaker

Health: 16,000

Rank & school: Rank 11 Storm Boss

Poseidon is definitely the hardest fight in this dungeon. Cheats, high health, minions that like to shield, his own ability to cast towers, storm attacks that remove blades, a natural attack that removes traps, and an Ice Mastery Amulet. Be prepared for him!

Minions: Atlantean Trierarchs

Health: 2,240

Rank & school: Rank 11 Ice Elite

“We immortals are infallible!” – Poseidon will proceed to cast Infallible whenever he doesn’t have an aura.

“You seek to weaken me? Drink from the depths!” – If you cast any single target Charms, Prisms and Traps on Poseidon, he will use his natural attack, which inflicts 475 Storm Damage, and removes all Traps on the boss.

He will immediately remove and single traps you put on him, so Storm wizards will need to use their AoE prism. You can also get pet traps to stay on him, but be aware that he does not need to cheat to cast his natural attack that removes traps – he can cast it any time he has a few pips. Don’t put prisms up until right before you’re going to hit!

What are your thoughts on Atlantea? Is it worth running?

With his main focus in Wizard101 PvE, you will find Cody knee deep fighting one of the Spiral's major bosses with an army of wizards at his disposal. Proficient in quite a few other areas of the game such as gardening, fishing, and most of all monstrology. Why monstrology? He chases after every single creature out there and catalogs them for all to see!


  • no drops worth acquiring whatsoever? poseidon drops golden ram pet the only other way to get it is paying an absurd amt. of crowns

  • It’s not, which is a shame. It’s a decent dungeon for that level, and it’s beautifully designed, but there are just no drops worth acquiring whatsoever. Good luck waiting for people in Team Up as you attempt to cross the quest off your list…
