The Gatekeeper Nightmare Unlock

DPS UNLOCK


1:st Phase

You need solid DPS or else you will die. If the boss kills you with “too slow” ( check combat log, it’s the actual ability name), then you were too slow.  Try to stay near the center of the map to start, move away from the first aoe circle that drops, drop a second one so that you have enough space in between to stand, then a third will drop in between, this can let you stay close to him a little longer and run around a bit less.
2:st Phase
At around 45k hp, the gatekeeper will float up into the air, you need to purge him within 5-6 seconds or else you will get one shotted. After purging this attack he will be passive for a few seconds, letting you lay on the damage uninterrupted.
3:rd Phase

During the third phase, he will summon an add.  Run around the outer edge of the circle kiting it while whittling away the Gatekeeper’s HP.  There is no time limit here, so just keep going until it dies.  The add will despawn after a time, at which point the Gatekeeper will just summon another one.

TANK UNLOCK

Video Guide

You will have a green add fighting beside you.  He will do all the damage to the boss that needs to be done.  Your job is to tank the boss and not let it cleave the green man.  If the green guy gets hit at all, the boss will 1-shot you and you will fail.  You need to get a few abilities to make this a million times easier.  Take 1 healing ability, either from the misc wheel, or from blades.  Use it every time it’s up.  Additionally, take 2 skills that will set impaired state.  This is needed because he will shoot you with a laser beam that would 1-shot you.  He does this twice, the first time around 40k hp and the second at around 25k hp.  After he shoots the 2nd laser and you get him down a little more, he will start summoning adds.  Pick them up so that they don’t hurt your green friend and the fight will be over before you know it.

During the fight, your green buddy will turn in circles (Both CW and CCW) around the boss, so keep him behind him.

HEALER UNLOCK

Build Used by Unfair can be found here.  He had 2.1k Heal Rating at the time of the kill.  Your job here is to keep your green friend alive.  He will take care of all of the damage on the Gatekeeper, you just need to keep him alive.  Throughout the fight, you will need to stay on the very outer edge of the fighting area.  keep moving around the platform while healing your friend.  Since you only do 1 damage to the Gatekeeper, leech abilities are useless.  Keep healing and trying to keep your friend alive.  When the Gatekeeper reaches approximately 50%, he will place 3 DoT’s on you.  You will need to use Transfuse & Abuse to get rid of them.  Do not bother targeting yourself to top yourself off afterwards, all of your heals need to be going out towards healing friends.  A little while later, you will get more friends summoned to the platform.  1 of them will stand in a fire.  Make sure to keep everyone as high as possible.  Alternate heals between the friend who is tanking, and the friend in the fire.  Don’t focus on bringing one back up to 100% before switching, just keep them both around even hp and he should die soon enough.  You will most likely end the fight with them both being fairly low on HP.

    Great guides! Especially the nightmare dungeon guides. As a beginner at nightmares, I definitely wouldn’t have done it as smooth without these. When I form a “newbie”-group, I usually link to the relevant dungeon in the group chat – and other players seem to enjoy the study aswell 🙂 Thank you!

  • I think the tank entry is incorrect. Self heals do not work. At all 🙂

    • They seems to be changing how the Gatekeeper fight works fairly often. And last I heard they are planning to make him a lot easier so more people can get into the ‘end-game’ I know in his current form, he’s annoying in any spec!

      • Heal

        Except for healers, he is ridickulously simple.

        • RMC

          only if your running something with Purge, i run Fist and Blood and have no Purge what so ever

          • Todd B

            Transfuse and Abuse for heal fight fist/blood build

          • Iconoclastix

            T&A is a cleanse, not a purge. Sorry RMC, you can’t complain about the lack of purge without allowing everyone else to complain about a lack of barriers and drones.

            Try “Dial Down”, with “Molten Earth” and “Coldwave”, (all three from Elementalism), for an AP cheap buy-in to purge.

          • Eddie

            Dial Down won’t work. Hes immune to Hinder/Impair. I used Smart Bomb and Clean Up (You need two) from the shotgun tree.

  • Slayer

    when are you going to post nightmare dungeon guides for the facility and hell fallen?

  • RMC

    I am running DPS with Fist and Blood and i have no Purge in either of these trees does anyone else thing this i not a fair cop

  • Barrett

    Hey there; anyone know the build/stats hes using in the Tank video? Having trouble as DPS on the Gatekeeper; the build hes using seems like it might be viable for me.

  • Oracle

    13.01.2013 – the heal on tank is restricted – aka can’t use any heal actives nor passives, u just get no heal at all no matter which skill or effect u have/used in dungs.

    i beat it whit out it, all u need is a full set of ql10 blue tank talis whit stats in block/def + the the stackable buff 3% dmg weakened effect and some buff to lower dmg

    did it whit no other than sword only, actives + the tank section for agro and 5 sec taunt for adds + 2 defs for end adds.

    used 5 ql10 blue talis to get stats up and whit having that (above) got him in second try (at first one impair glanced :P)

    at any rate it was barely enough, so it’s poor get up, whit some chaos + shotgun + hammer passives would be allot easier

    if want to see deck/stats let me know in game : OracleDB
