Kromede's Trial Walkthrough Kromede's Trial Walkthrough Edit

Kromede’s Trial is one of three Solo Instanced Dungeons introduced in Assault on Balaurea, and is for Daevas levels 37-44. Inside Kromede’s Trial, Daevas will explore Kromede’s (of Fire Temple fame) tragic past—a tale of romance, revenge, and corruption.

Kromede’s Trial is home to four Named Monsters, however, unlike other Instanced Dungeons, these Named Monsters are linked to each other and engaging one will have ramifications for facing the others.

Kaliga is the final boss of Kromede’s Trial, and will drop different loot depending on whether the three Named Monsters prior are defeated. Should Daevas choose to engage the Instanced Dungeon’s other Named Monsters before facing Kaliga, those same monsters will fight alongside Kaliga in a weakened state during the final battle.

Kaliga himself will also be weakened should one of the other Named Monsters be engaged. If Daevas choose to face Kaliga without engaging the other Named Monsters, Kaliga will have a chance to drop Fabled weapons from the “Kaliga” series. If the other Named Monsters are engaged, Kaliga will drop Heroic armor and accessories from the “Corrupt Judge” series.

Here’s a little more information about Kromede’s Trial:

Kromede’s Trial Tactics edit

There are two different approaches to the Kromede’s Trial Instanced Dungeon, with the main difference being the loot that the final boss (and the antecedent Named Monsters) drops.


For a Fabled Weapon…1. Ignore the Named Monsters and proceed straight to Kaliga.
2. Defeat Kaliga the Unjust for a chance at Kaliga’s Key.
3. Use Kaliga’s Key to unlock a weapon rack that will provide the desired weapon from the “Kaliga” series.
For Heroic Armor…1. Defeat the 3 Named Monsters (Justicetaker Wyr, Lady Angerr, Hamam the Torturer) leading up to Kaliga.
2. Fight the 3 Named Monsters with Shadow Judge Kaliga at the end of Kromede’s Trial.
3. Shadow Judge Kaliga drops armor from the Corrupt Judge series, as do the 3 Named Monsters which will fight alongside him in their weakened state.


Daevas can enter Kromede’s Trial at Camp Kistenian in Beluslan (for Asmodians), or Arbolu’s Haven in Heiron (for Elyos).

Kromede’s Trial Walkthrough - Kaliga Manor

Overcome with the desire for vengeance, Kromede proceeds to the Kaliga Manor. Inside the Manor are numerous Normal Monsters, Named Monsters, and the final boss, Kaliga. Daevas will also find a handful of items and useful buffs to aid them in enacting Kromede’s revenge.


Watch out for sentries in this area, and remember,

even the butlers and maids are dangerous!

Kromede’s Trial Walkthrough - Kaliga Treasury

Kromede’s Trial Walkthrough - Kaliga Treasury edit

In this area are a couple more Normal Monsters, and the final boss, Kaliga. Depending on Kromede’s actions in the Instanced Dungeon, she will face either Kaliga the Unjust or Shadow Judge Kaliga.


Notice the weapon racks leading up to Kaliga. Kaliga the Unjust has a chance to drop Kaliga’s Key, which will open

one of the weapon racks and grant Daevas access to a Fabled weapon of their choosing


If facing Shadow Judge Kaliga, he will also be accompanied by any of his allies that were defeated during the Instanced Dungeon. These allies are Hamam the Torturer, Lady Angerr, and Justicetaker Wyr. However, when fighting with Shadow Judge Kaliga, these Named Monsters will be in a weakened state.


Shadow Judge Kaliga fights alongside his allies in their weakened state


If facing Kaliga the Unjust, Kromede will have her hands full. Kaliga the Unjust is a much more difficult Named Monster, and has numerous abilities that can dish out massive damage and make him a hassle to defeat.


Kaliga the Unjust begins the battle by stunning Kromede and activating his two Orbs


The Orb of Strength reduces the damage Kaliga takes

from all attacks to 1, making this Orb a priority to destroy

Destroying the Orb of Magic will further reduce Kaliga’s

defenses, and make him easier to defeat


While avoiding Kaliga might seem a wise idea, he’ll use his magic to yank foes back when they’re out of range


Throughout the encounter, Kaliga the Unjust will summon Golems to aid him. Be sure to beat

the Golems down fast, their health is low but they hit hard!


Be careful when Kaliga creates a lightning circle, he’s about to unleash a devastating attack!


When Kaliga the Unjust is defeated, there’s a chance he’ll drop Kaliga’s Key, which can open

one of the Weapon Racks and grant access to a Fabled weapon!


With Kaliga slain, Kromede has her revenge, but the pain of Robstin’s death corrupts her into a creature not so dissimilar from the one that took her loved one’s life…


Thus, the once noble and compassionate Kromede becomes Kromede the Corrupt.
