Elder God Wars Dungeon: The Nodon Front
Time has officially run out. The first front of the Elder God Wars Dungeon is here. The Nodon dragonkin have risen from their age-long slumber, and led by the recently enslaved Kerapac, they're bearing down on Senntisten Cathedral. Only one thing stands between them and the all-important ritual to weaken the Elder Gods' eggs - you, the World Guardian.
Your primary mode of defence will be fighting the Nodon, a new set of Slayer creatures that require at least 92 Slayer to defeat. Those of you with at least 90 Construction will also get to play around with their powerful siege engines. Destroy them, and you'll help turn the tide of battle.
Of course, you can't face this primordial army alone - you'll have help from Zilyana, Nex, Kree'arra and K'ril Tsutsaroth, each of whom has their own gift to bestow upon their ally.
Perhaps most dauntingly you must also prepare to face off once again against your old foe, Kerapac, in the epic surroundings of Senntisten's grand colosseum. But this won't be a repeat of your previous battle - he's armed with not one, but two Elder artefacts, and along with a suitably beefed up additional *****. Let's just say you'll need time on your side to get the better of him. There's also a hard mode version of the fight for those of you seeking a little extra challenge.
Wait... did we miss something? Ah yes - the rewards. Being masters of science and innovation, defeating the Nodon will get you a few sweet upgrades to your own siege weapons, along with a new look for your Dwarf Multicannon.
Besting Kerapac in the colosseum, meanwhile, could lead to you getting your mitts on the legendary Staff of Armadyl, along with a host of other powerful goodies.
Lastly, a little birdie has told us that you may want to bring along your Pontifex Shadow Ring, if you have one. After all, the hidden corners of the city hold all kinds of interesting secrets...
