The Abyssal Depths are a side area accessible from Abysses.

Abysses may spawn a portal to the Abyssal Depths instead of an Abyssal Trove. The Depths are a relatively large area of winding passageways that contain a high number of rare enemies as well as Hoards; both may drop Abyss items such as the Stygian ViseStygian ViseHas 1 Abyssal Socket.


The boss, situated in a separate arena, is ordinarily the Stygian Spire. This stationary totem continually summons enemies, including rares, and must be defeated in 80 seconds. If this timer expires, the boss despawns.

Abyssal Liches

In rare cases, an Abyssal Lich may spawn as the boss instead, and provide an extended boss fight. At three points in the fight, the Lich disappears and a timer of 1 minute and 30 seconds appears. Players must move to a side area to find and kill the Stygian Spire there and then return to the Lich's arena. The timer does not reset between Spire fights, but it is halted once each Spire has been defeated. This means that players must kill all three Spires in the time provided.

Abyssal Liches can only be encountered in Tier 3 maps or higher.

The Liches include:
