Oinos

From HGWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The first layer of Hades. Oinos's landscape consists mostly of plains with the occasional hill. It was the primary battleground of the Blood War, so it was where the fighting was the fiercest and most constant. Oinos's stunted trees and other plantlife were routinely destroyed by the fiendish armies trampling over it and the sounds of battle could be heard anywhere on Oinos.

Entering Oinos Hades

To enter the Oinos, you must first get to The Workshop. If you have Zerial's Token, you can use it anywhere in Town to be instantly transported to The Workshop. Use portal to go to another plane (option 1 then option 3). There are no portalling limitations in Oinos and if you want to get back to the exit without randomly running around use a Gem of Teleportation (or a Rune of Return if you have one) and this will deposit you next to the exit portal.

  • The entire run is a Fugue/Limbo area for both Immortal & Demi-God characters.
  • As loot spawns directly from creatures here you can spam loot breaking spells with impunity as there is nothing you can break.
  • Resting is possible although with a small spawn chance, the only rest spawns you will get are Canoloth of variable numbers, you can avoid this spawn chance by using your Ring of the Planar Traveler or portalling back to The Workshop when you need to rest.

Penalties

  • Players (and creatures) suffer level 1 Layer penalty when venturing to Oinos.
  • Bard song and Curse song doesn't work due the emotion nullifying nature of this plane.
  • All the water in Oinos is from the river Styx and will cause a DC 60 will check vs amnesia (unless you have immunity to this effect) when entered, unless you have no abilities that are affected by this effect it is not advisable to stand in the water.

Spawn Structure

In Oinos, creatures from Abyss, Pit of Moliation, Elysium and Hells can spawn. The different groups can be hostile to each other, creatures killed by other creatures will not yield exp or loot. Elysium creatures are neutral to players (until attacked by them), all others are hostile from the start but may initially prefer to attack other creatures leaving player characters for desert. Spawns are dynamic in that the numbers and types of creatures scale with player group size. Paragon types of creatures my spawn depending on demigod status, character levels and other factors, any of the creatures encountered can be of a paragon type including Elysium and Pit of Moliation creatures. Spawns are fixed per server reset in that some spawn points may or may not be active and if you get Elysium creatures they will show up every time a specific trigger is activated although the creature mix will vary.

Below are the most common creatures of Oinos. These are the creatures with which a soloer (and in fact a party of two characters) will be confronted. Spawn in Oinos are dynamic in that other and stronger creatures spawn for larger player groups (four being the minimum for the larger Hell and Abyss creatures to show up), including (but not restricted to) Pit Fiends, Malebranches, Balor, Marilth, Arcanaloth, Orthon, Jovoc, etc. Therefore if you vist Oinos with a large party be prepared to deal with some extremely unpleasant creatures in large and random groups which can make it tricky to pick specific targets and make AoE damage cause significant kickback to you and your party.

Recommended Character Stats and Tactics

The Oinos is a level 55-60 area. There are both STR and DEX check creatures (reaching about 40) for a solo player.
Disarming some of the creatures here can significantly reduce their damage output and in some cases prevent use of special attacks making your stay here significantly less unpleasant.
Pick pocketing is also highly recommended for all the creatures that have heals to halve the time it takes to kill them.
