Normal Fungal Grotto 2

This is the second video of my Dungeon Walkthrough series for the Elder Scrolls Online! The dungeon covered in this video is Fungal Grotto 2, which is definitely a step up from Fungal Grotto 1.  This video will cover everything you could want to know about the dungeon, such as notable gear sets, boss mechanics, and more!

  • Dungeon Name: Fungal Grotto 2
  • Zone: Stonefalls
  • Difficulty: Normal
  • Party Composition: 4 (1 tank, 1 healer, 2 dps)
  • Quests: Lighting the Shadows
  • Level Unlocked: 45
  • Gear Sets: Spider Cultist Cowl, Viper’s Sting, Dreugh King
  • Other (Achievements, Other points of note): Achievement for completing – Fungal Grotto II Vanquisher
  • Story: The story of this dungeon leaves off from the events of Fungal Grotto 1.  Defender Two-Blades needs the group’s help to defeat the Spider Cultists who have taken control of an artifact called the Obsidian Husk.
  • Bosses and Mechanics
    • Mephala’s Fang
      • 2 Healing Ads: These ads heal the boss and should be focused down first to make the fight significantly easier.
      • AoE Poison: Circles of poison spawn around the map.  These deal a lot of damage, so avoid these to prevent yourself from taking unnecessary damage.
      • Poison Spray:  Conal AoE shot out from the boss.  Optimally, the tank should be facing the boss away from the rest of the group so they are unaffected by the poison.
    • Gaymne Bandu
      • Shadow Tormentor Chains: Gaymne summons 4 shadow tormentors to pin down a random player.  After a set duration, a sword will pierce the player and deal heavy damage, potentially fatal.  To avoid this, the group should focus down 1 of the tormentors.  Just killing one will cause the chain to break and free the player.
      • The boss connects two players with a beam of light.  This will deal a heavy amount of damage to the players.  To stop this, the players need to run AWAY from each other and break the beam that binds them.
      • Obsidian Aspects:  The boss will spawn 4 obsidian aspects that need to be killed to make the boss reappear.
    • Ciirenas the Shepherd
      • The boss has 3 spider ads around her that should not be killed.  Killing these ads will give her a damage reduction shield that gets stronger as more spiders get killed.
    • Spawn of Mephala
      • There is a portal at the back of the room during this fight that will teleport the player closet to it into a room filled with spiders.  These spiders need to be killed for the player to be brought back into the main room.
        • I believe you can avoid this if you pull the boss near the bridge. So this mechanic becomes null and void.
        • If you can’t avoid it, make sure the person with the best AoE is the one that is ported into the room.
      • From time to time there will be a ciruclar area that grows outwards from the boss, and when it reaches its maximum range will cause an AoE blast that deals heavy damage.
      • Occasionally a beam of light will shoot out that has an AoE around the end that will deal a heavy amount of damage. If two of these beams spawn and you’re caught in the AoE, it can easily kill you.
    • Reggr Dark-Dawn
      • Kill the obsidian warriors in the room prior to engaging the boss.
      • Pull the boss up onto the stair case to make the fight easier.
      • He has a basic AoE attack in a circle around him. Nothing to be overly concerned about.
      • Reggr has a heavy attack that he uses on his main target that should be blocked, or it will deal massive damage to its target.
      • The boss uses a Magicka Drain effect that drains all the magicka from everyone in the group. Have magicka potions on you to quickly restore your magicka or be prepared to heavy attack and restore that missing resource.
    • Vila Theran
      • Teleportation: As the fight goes on, Vila will teleport around the room and drop AoE on the floor that expand and deal large amounts of damage.  Do your best to avoid these.
      • DoT Attack: The boss will put her weapon in the air and shoot beams out at players and this deals a high amount of damage over time.  To prevent being damaged by this, stand in the protected dome area near the obsidian husk.  The NPCs announce when this is occurring during the fight as well.
