Legend tells of a great Lemurian admiral who long ago discovered the secret of eternal life. It was by mere luck that he found the answer to this divine riddle, which was never meant to be solved by any mortal. But the stories speak of how the admiral found and kept the source of immortality some six thousand years ago!
With knowledge came greed. The Lemurian admiral feared that his secret could be stolen away from him by rivals or by those of royal blood. So he decided not to return to Lemuria but to build a great city to protect and hide the source of everlasting life from the rest of the world and to keep it only to himself and his loyal followers. So it came to pass that the Lemurian admiral proclaimed himself king and had his loyal subjects build a city. A city that survived the great cataclysm that wiped out the rest of the Lemurian society from the face of the world. And so the great city and its secret was forgotten in time.
But there are people who have learned of the Forgotten City once again in present times. And they know about the secret it holds. They want to learn about immortality and rip the answer from the Lemurian king at all costs! So they look for able men and women to travel to the remote location of the Forgotten City and breach its sealed gates. What dangers lie behind, nobody knows. But it is certain that the open courtyards and once splendid buildings of the city are inhabited with life that has been there for thousands of years. Who knows? Some of these creatures might even welcome death after such a long time of living. Are you ready to grant them their wish?
The Forgotten City is a Soloable Dungeon Located in Northern Gateway to Khitai(642, 1425). The Forgotten City provides characters with a sufficient amount of exp; combined with the Noble District Villas and the The Breach , another soloable dungeon in Gateway to Khitai, they give a good amount of experience to help with the notorious gap in experience to 80. The dungeon scales with your level and requires you to be level 40-80. It's a very simple dungeon completable by lower geared characters. There are 3 bosses inside which drop Mastery Tomes and a green item. The bosses will occassionally drop a rare version of one of the greens they usually drop. *It resets every 20 hours.
Normal Mode Strategy:Edit
The first boss does an occassional Aoe with a long cast time, simply run out the spell's range(There is a red circle outlining the area if particles are on).
The second boss does some sort of knockback tornado, avoid being near the cliffs.
There is a group of mobs before the final boss which need to be debuffed before engaging them, simply interact with the nearby tree and they will be debuffed.
The final boss is a tank n spank with a knockback followed by him running to a nearby altar to heal himself, simply right click and interact with the altar to stop him. After he is dead attack the chest in front of the tree to claim your loot. You can then leave the instance by a vine type ladder where the boss was standing initially.
There are 3 repeatable quests for The Forgotten city: Older than Memory, What was Once Forgotten, and another quest obtainable from picking up notes on the ground after entering the room with the forgotten soldiers. The first quest can be obtained outside the instance from a shady merchant named Jiuling and the second is obtained at Menusdjin's camp from a Stygian sorceress, Akana(659, 1117).
