Ancient Sanctuary/Guide

From Melvor Idle
This page is out of date (v1.1).

Manual Build

At the moment the best option is to go through Ancient Sanctuary manually if you want to get access to the next dungeon Underground Lava Lake as soon as possible.

With optimal setup you should be able to idle most of it barring equipment switches for optimal combat triangle.

There are a total of 6 different monsters you will be fighting and they are all from the slayer area Jungle Labyrinth

Maxed out Astrology perks to at least lvl 99 is optimal as well as the same Agility bonuses used in Impending Darkness Event

Recommended Hitpoints would be 105 or higher

Magic

You'll be using this build for only 2 monsters Kongamato (4 times) and Conda (3 times). Both have really low Magic evasiveness so they should be quick kills for either setup.

The magic set up is assuming you have above 110 magic and 112 runecrafting. If not then it's certainly possible to complete the dungeon with the same gear as Impending Darkness Event but it's best to try and make as many easy upgrades as possible.

Consumables:

Optional

Summoning tablets aren't absolutely necessary for these fights however if you have lower gear then it would be recommended.

Use Divination and Holy Aegis prayers or the highest level appropriate alternatives you have available

Unless you have the Meteorite Staff to be able to use the archaic spell Meteor Shower then Fire Surge is the best spell to use at the moment.

The (P) Divine Shield has the same debuffs as Earth Layered Shield however provides a huge increase in Defense Bonus as well as Damage Reduction making it the optimal shield. If you don't have the smithing level required for Divine then (P) Corundum Shield and (P) Augite Shield are good upgrades.

You can use Calamity Wand assuming you have the runecrafting level. Almost any wand above level 100 runecrafting is better than Ocean Song so if you're able definitely go for that first.


Ranged

Only used for 1 monster being the Poison Toad (5 times). You should have no trouble with it so just sit back and watch.

Consumables:

Optional

Summoning tablets aren't absolutely necessary for these fights however if you have lower gear then it would be recommended.

Use Avidity and Holy Aegis prayers or the highest level appropriate alternatives you have available

For ammo anything that's Jadestone Bolts up to Zephyte Bolts is good, just use your most powerful bolt available to you at the moment.

The recommended items in the list are items that are attainable with skilling and are definitely worth the grind to attain them. The dungeon is possible with Impending Darkness Event gear but to maximize the easiness it's recommended to grind out some levels for upgrades.

Melee

Melee is used the most here so having the best upgrades you can will be crucial to clearing this dungeon. You'll be facing 3 monsters; Hungry Plant (6 times), Alraune (2 times), and the Dungeon Boss Morellia


Consumables:

Necessary

Summoning tablets are recommended for these fights especially against Morellia

Use Valor and Holy Aegis prayers or the highest level appropriate alternatives you have available

The Tormented Ring is recommended because of the maxed out Divine Armour and the defense bonus more than makes up for the (-50) defense loss. If you have anything less than Divine then I would stick with the Ring of Blade Echoes as it's still a top ring.

I would also put the Divine Sword above the Tidal Edge just due to the strength bonus. It has a stab bonus (+120) almost equal to the Tidal Edge's slash (+124) however it also provides a Defense bonus of (+6) and the Special Attack is notable and arguably better than Tidal Edge. You could also use Tidal Edge for the melee evasion debuff and then switch to the Divine Sword to finish the fight.

Morellia

The fight can be little drawn out due to her healing ability from both Poison Lifesteal and Afflicted Vitality. Maxed out DPS is necessary otherwise she will continually heal back to full. The main attack that can be deadly is Seeking Roots dealing 1000 damage without DR but luckily wont ruin The Game. As long as you have the same food and auto eat efficiency as used in Impending Darkness Event then you shouldn't have to manually eat.

Idle Build

Now I tried to keep the idle build to be nothing too outrageous and pretty attainable even after just completing the dungeon for the first time.

Recommended stats:

We will be using the Melee build as it is the style used for the majority of the fights as well as the boss.

Note: The Ultima Godsword is a 2H weapon and cannot be used in conjunction with a shield. If the Spectral Ice Sword is to be used, it should be used with the (P) Divine Shield.

Consumables:

Summoning tablets are recommended for idling but with the setup above not absolutely necessary.

If you don't have the Ultima Godsword then it is HIGHLY recommended to grind Spectral Ice Wolf for the Spectral Ice Sword as it is a huge upgrade and the future upgrade off that will be desired.

Note: With this build above I was able to complete 285 dungeons in 24 hours idle. So 11 clears an hour. With the Spectral Ice Sword it was ~9 clears an hour.
