Valley of Defilement Basic Information

Levels Are Challenging, Bosses Are Not

Level Difficulty Boss Difficulty
★★★★★ ★★

In the Valley of Defilment you will encounter enemies and areas that can inflict the Poison and Plague status in droves, and the narrow walkways don't make things any easier. This means that if you don't deal with the enemies as you go, you will have difficulty progressing through this area. The Valley of Defilement is dark as well, making it difficult to see where you need to go and you may fall to your death on multiple occasions. Despite this level's difficulty, the bosses are quitue simple in comparison, so this area is all about whether or not you can make it to the boss room.
