Lost Ark Gate of Paradise: Defeating 8 Dungeon Bosses

Our Lost Ark Gate of Paradise entails all 8 abyssal dungeon bosses that you will encounter while playing Gate of Paradise in the game.

Lost Ark is a 2.5D fantasy game that came out in 2019. It was developed by Tripod Studio, and its sales immediately blew up right after its launch. The game itself features many game modes, such as PvP and PvE, giving the players a wide array of options to play through.

Key Takeaways
  • The Lost Ark Gate of Paradise is the fourth set of abyssal dungeons. This dungeon is a bit difficult but very fun to play at the time.
  • There are 3 bosses; Sea of Indolence Boss, Tranquil Karkosa Boss, and Alaric’s Sanctuary Boss. There are 3 abysses as well. There are complementary bosses as well.
  • These bosses can be really tough if you are unaware of their attacks and strengths. But, once you crack their fight style, attacks, and strengths, you can easily take them all down.
  • Tranquil Karkosa is a big pirate and has some damaging attacks that you will want to avoid. Get out of the way whenever he holds either his pistol up in the air or his anchor.

All Bosses To Encounter 

Lost Ark’s Gate of Paradise is the fourth set of abyssal dungeons. They are very fun to play yet also pretty complicated and challenging to play. They can also be slightly longer as there are three bosses in total with a total of three abysses. Their names are “Sea of Indolence,” “Tranquil Karkosa,” and “Alaric’s Sanctuary.” 

Sea of Indolence Boss 1

The first boss in the Abyss is a four-headed dragonfish that players will encounter in the first set of the Abyss.

  • Players will be in diving suits with different abilities, similar to mech abilities.
  • Players can randomly receive a gauntlet or a ranged weapon.
  • The strategy is to focus on pushing the boss’s health down to around halfway, at which point his shark companion will spawn.
  • Prioritize killing the shark companion first, as doing so grants a damage buff to the players, and then focus on defeating the boss.

Sea of Indolence Boss 2

The second boss in the Sea of Indolence is a large sea monster.

  • Players need to understand the breathing mechanics introduced in the Gate of Paradise.
  • Players have a circle above their heads indicating their breathing, which slowly depletes and can be replenished by approaching bubble plants or bubble rock spots.
  • Yellow moves from bosses deplete the breathing meter significantly.
  • The boss has attacks that can petrify players, immobilizing them and rendering them unable to move. They can either wait for the effect to wear off or have a teammate attack them to become mobile again.
  • The boss has a white mechanic where it selects one player to spawn a safe zone. Players must enter this safe zone before the boss attacks, or they will be defeated.
  • An optimal strategy for defeating the boss is for players to group behind the boss, staying close to each other to prepare for the white circle special attack.

Tranquil Karkosa Boss 1

The first boss of the second abyss, Tranquil Karkosa, is a big pirate with various AoE attacks. Players need to dodge their serious attacks, as they deal significant damage to players and their teammates.

  • The primary AoE attack to watch out for is the large color-afflicted AoE.
  • If the boss is holding his pistol in the air, players should rush to the red tiles to avoid the stun. If the boss is holding his anchor in the air, players should rush towards the blue tiles to avoid the stun.
  • Avoiding these stuns is crucial, as they are among the strongest attacks in the Gate of Paradise.
  • The boss also has team-wiping mechanics. He can summon two magicians, either at the top and bottom or left and right of the map.
  • Players need to break the shields on the magicians to kill them quickly. Afterward, players must deal damage to the boss to deplete his stagger counter rapidly.

Tranquil Karkosa Boss 2

The second boss in the second abyss doesn’t have a wipe mechanic to worry about. One of her main abilities involves grabbing a player and continuously punching them. Players need to attack the boss to deal stagger damage, which will free the captured player.

  • While being punched, players won’t be wiped, but they will take significant damage.
  • The boss also occasionally summons pufferfish that move toward her.
  • Once they reach her, she performs an enormous high-damage AoE attack.
  • To counter this, players should kill the pufferfish before they complete their animation. Even if they reach the boss, they don’t deal enough damage to wipe out the entire team.

Tranquil Karkosa Boss 3

The final boss of the second abyss, Tranquil Karkosa, is a large dragon turtle monster and is considered the toughest boss in the Gate of Paradise. He has a mechanic where, at 16 health bars and 8 health bars, he will summon balls that rush toward him.

  • There will be 8 balls, each located at fixed positions that don’t change between attempts. It’s crucial for players to discuss these positions before starting the raid to avoid confusion during the fight.
  • Players must intercept the balls so they don’t reach the boss.
  • To avoid collecting two orbs simultaneously, players must follow a clockwise rotation after collecting an orb. 
  • However, during the 8th health bar mechanic, players should pause and wait after collecting the third orb before proceeding to collect the next orb.

Alaric’s Sanctuary Boss 1

The first boss in Alaric’s Sanctuary requires players to fight two bosses simultaneously. The arena starts with the party dispersed, and one party faces the Shark-looking boss while the other confronts the Siren. The Shark boss is agile, so players must dodge its critical attacks with care.

  • The Siren has a team wipe mechanic when it reaches 15 HP.
  • It teleports to the Shark boss and initiates a team wipe attack.
  • During this attack, the Siren drops a golden orb and several black orbs on the map where players were fighting the Siren earlier (now teleported to the Shark Boss map).
  • Players on the original map need to destroy the golden orb to gain the golden aura.
  • They should then use the teleporter to move to the map where both bosses are present.
  • Players on the original map should stand still to allow the Shark team to obtain the aura.
  • When the Siren launches its team wipe attack, players with the golden aura are invincible, and they take no damage from the attack.
  • Players can proceed to defeat the low-health Siren and then focus on killing the Shark boss as well.

Alaric’s Sanctuary Boss 2

The second boss in Alaric’s Sanctuary is a Poseidon-like Hydro elemental boss. The main mechanic of the boss fight is to make the boss break all four pillars in the arena.

  • When the boss reaches his fourth health bar, he will randomly place a circle around a player. Other players will have large red circles around them.
  • The targeted player must rush toward one of the pillars and prepare to dodge the boss’s attack. The attack will break the pillar.
  • Players with large circles should stay away from the targeted player, as the boss’s attack deals significant AoE damage to them.
  • If the targeted player can’t dodge the attack, they must ensure the boss hits the pillar to achieve the main objective of breaking all four pillars.
  • Breaking a pillar staggers the boss, and all party members should focus on dealing as much damage as possible during this phase.

Alaric’s Sanctuary Boss 3

The last boss of the final abyss has several important mechanics. The first mechanic is similar to the previous boss, where every five hits from the boss freeze the players. Avoid getting the fifth stack.

  • The boss has a more critical mechanic where, every 90 seconds, he moves to the center of the map and creates safe zones around him.
  • It then places safe zones on the map, and players must immediately rush to these zones to avoid the deadly team wipes attack.
