Krampusnacht Strategy Guide
Krampus returns! His blood boils at the sound of gleeful carolers and cheerful snowball fights. A wicked smile stretches wide across his face - for this time things will be different. He's gone and kidnapped some of old St. Nicholas' little helpers and cloned them into evil minions.
Fight off Krampus and his minions to earn prizes and send him back to the burning coal-pit he crawled from.
This guide aims to give you some insights on target mechanics for the event.
Slay Bells Ringing [lvl 777(co-op) & 333(solo)]
Grab your Sovereigns and a partner if you choose, then head into Krampus’ domain. In these targets you’ll be fighting against Krampus and his evil minions in a multi-phased battle.
Phase 1: Krampus quickly dashes across the water while his helpers fire a barrage of snowballs from all directions. Watch out for Krampus’ frontal weapon as he darts across.
Phase 2: Krampus is preparing to enter the battle with his minions. Mega snowball walls slowly cross the screen. These deal damage if they hit you but can also be attacked and destroyed.
Phase 3: Krampus and his minions enter the battle. You must figure out the optimal priority for taking each one out and all must be destroyed to end the battle.
