The Condemned Subway is the first dungeon for newcomers to Rubi-Ka. It's made for low level players in the level range of about 5 to 25.
Entering the dungeon is limited to level 25 max; while you can stay inside the dungeon and level beyond that you won't be able to reenter it once you've left it with a level 26 or higher. Warping into the dungeon is blocked (at least for players past level 25).
The subway can be entered in ICC HQ in Andromeda. Prior to the 18.7 patch, there were also subway instances in Borealis, West Athen, and Rome, but these entrances no longer work. A random mission door in Newland City appears to be a subway entrance but does not lead to the Condemned Subway.
Note: If you want to explore the subway with friends, team up before entering the subway; the dungeon is instanced. Without being teamed you may end up in different instances, not seeing each other while being virtually at the same place.
The upper level(s) of the subway resembles a real subway station with shops, ramps and platforms. Guarded by Eumenides is the access tunnel to the lower, second part of the dungeon, which looks more like being part of a sewer (maintenance) system. As usual, the further you run into the dungeon, the more dangerous the mobs get.
Most of the mobs have standard loot, common to similar type mobs you find in missions and outdoors, including weapons, implants and clusters, first aid kits and so on
Additionally, you may find Living Cyber Armor parts, pieces for the first Ergo Ring quest, Eleet dolls and Morphing Memories, slot 1 NCU chips which can be leveled up.
See the description to the Quest for more info about the other Living Cyber Armor parts and how to obtain them.
The Violent Vagabonds drop the
- Vagabond Cloak, which is needed for one of the newbie quests and,
- The fr00b T-shirt, which is a nice social item.
There are several Striker named mobs in the subway which drop specific loot as well:
- Support Beam of Intolerance of various QLs (QL is not shown in the item description!)
and their boss Striker Foreman (Level 19)
- Boots of Infinite Speed (rare drop)
Unique Mobs Edit
Eumenides is a level 20 boss guarding the lower part of the subway in one of the railroad tunnels. Respawntime: 15-90 minutes (varies)
Vergil Aeneid is a ~level 29 boss. He is pretty much at the end of the dungeon, guarding the lair of Abmouth. Usually there are 2 mobs beside him, but they are in no way connected with Vergil in regard to spawning, but tend to share a similar aggro range and/or social aggro when Vergil is attacked.
Respawntime: 30 Minutes
Abmouth Supremus is the level 30 final boss of the Subway. Usually he is standing in a small pit at the very end, sometimes already guarded by 2 infectors. Latest if he gets attacked these 2 infectors will spawn. Killing them is required at times, however they will get respawned immediately. Let a calmer handle them if there is one available.
Respawntime: 30 Minutes, although it seems more like a 20-30 min respawn timer with lower than 100% chance of spawning
Map of the Condemned Subway Edit
The map is outdated, need a new version with the new corridor.
