While completing the mechanics of each lane, that lane will raise a meter. The higher the level, the more damage you will inflict on Gerent when it spawns. The lane mechanics must progress past the first bar to lure Gerent out. From there, any extra numbers gives the group a boost.

Within each lane there is one mechanic that is the same. This mechanics requires several players to kill a group of chak that rush through the lane. Failure to kill them will result in the cannon at the end of the lane being damaged.

Ogre Lane

This lane is relatively simple, players will need to destroy chak eggs around the area. This mechanic repeats through the lane until the end.

Players will also have to deal with various mushroom enemies that knock back. Bring stability and keep moving to avoid being knocked off the platforms.

Rata Novus Lane

Rata lane is another straight forward lane. The goal is simple, players need to collect power cores and throw them at the under powered golems.

SCAR Lane

Out of all the lanes, SCAR is the most straight forward. All players need to is kill as many chak as possible. There are large groups that spawn. Just kill everything that moves
