Overview[edit | edit source]

Dustopia is a very hard dimension, perhaps the most difficult dimension of them all. The Realmstone for Dustopia is dropped by Grillfaces, Hunters and Shifters - all of which can be found in Greckon. Players who visit Dustopia will receive a Strength buff from Erebon. It is recommended to have the best of the best equipment and weaponry when going to Dustopia, as the mobs that spawn there can take lots of punishment even with the bonus damage given from Erebon's Strength.

What to bring[edit | edit source]

CommanderArmorIcons.png - It is reccomended to bring the best Armor available

Skeletal Sword.png - It is reccomended to bring the best sword available.

Deep Bow.png Laser Blaster.png - It is reccomended to bring the best ranged weapons available.

Milk.png - Lurkers inflict a very deadly Wither III debuff, so it's a good idea to bring a few Buckets of Milk with you to cure yourself.

Night Vision Potion.png Tablet of Night Vision.png Night Vision Goggles.png - Torches are not as effective in Dustopia as they are in most other dimensions. Having some means of Night Vision is highly recommended so that you can see well in the dimension.

HunterAtt.png - In order to fight Merkyres, your Hunter skill must reach Level 79. It needs to be even higher to fight Arkzynes and Crusilisks - Levels 89 and 95 respectively.

Why Come Here[edit | edit source]

Shyrelands Realmstone.png - realmstones to the Shyrelands.

PrimordialArmorIcons.png - The Primordial Armor set is one of the most powerful armor sets in Advent of Ascension. Pieces of the set can be obtained by defeating the group of bosses of Dustopia - The Primordial Five.

HunterAtt.png - The Primordial Five drop 43,200 Hunting experience total.

Sabbath.png Dark Destroyer.png - Powerful weapons can be obtained by grinding many of the mobs here, such as Sabbath and the Dark Destroyer.

Raw Beef.png Rosite Ingot.png RuneKinetic.png Primordial Dust.png - The Primordials offer many useful trades! The most important one of all is the Primordial Dust - which is used to summon and challenge the Primordial Five.

Generation[edit | edit source]

Dustopia has a flat landscape filled with very thick forestry and foliage. The landscape of Dustopia is almost pitch-black, making it almost impossible to see anything without some form of light by your side. Even then, the stone and wood that come from Dustopia are so blackened, the details are barely noticeable without Night Vision - making you feel as though you're mining in the dark.

Biomes[edit | edit source]

Dustopia (Dustopian Forest): The regular Dustopia biome filled with tall and cluttered forestry. This biome was renamed to "Dustopian Forest" in the 2.5 snapshot.

Dustopian Marsh: Swampy biomes with large lakes and tall foliage. The water from this biome sometimes "leaks" into other biomes.

Dustopian Plains: Treeless biomes that bear features all too similar to that of Overworld Plains.

Structures:[edit | edit source]

Dustopia has a few structures including:

Mobs[edit | edit source]

The aggressive mobs in Dustopia have a very dark and macabre theme. They also blend in very well with the colorless landscape of Dustopia, making it extremely difficult to detect them. Fortunately, many of them are also very loud, so it's easy to know what enemies are nearby once you've memorized the sounds they make.

Tips for Hunting Mobs and exploring Dustopia[edit | edit source]

  • The mobs of Dustopia can take lots of punishment and deal just as much in return. As such, it's recommended you bring the best armor and weapons you can muster.
  • Because of the nigh pitch-black landscape of Dustopia, torches won't do you much justice in Dustopia. Bringing some Potions of night vision or equipping Biogenic Armor can allow you to see much more clearly in Dustopia.
  • The Primordials have many useful trades, but be prepared to fight whatever monstrosities get in your way during your search for some villages!
  • Stalker Primes are the most powerful of all rare mobs currently existing in Advent of Ascension in terms of stats alone.
  • It's sometimes a good idea to turn up the brightness of your game if you're having trouble navigating in Dustopia.
  • If you wish to build a home in Dustopia, it's recommended you make it out of colorful blocks so that it can stand out among its colorless landscape.
