W.I.P. Before starting to read, from the introduction up until destruction, its up to date. BUT. From Destruction forward, most ubers are not updated (will do ASAP), some ubers still unchanged since XVI, so you will be able to apply the same strategies to defeat them. KEEP THAT IN MIND. STILL WIP.

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, to the updated Uber's bible for MXL2017. We are gonna cover ALL the Ubers, challenges and minigames for this last patch.

What does this bible has to offer?
  • A comprehensive/straight to the point Uber's guide.
  • A simple/easy way for new players to understand all the ubers in this game and, at the same time, a deep knowledge for advanced players.

Since MXL17 patch, LC1(LevelChallenge1) is now the first challenge (rip Volrath). Fear do not! Professor glasses is here to help you.

What do I need for this uber?
  • Level 50 or lower, don't surpass it or you wont be able to cube the charm.
  • Some basic TU's/Stats like 6k-8k defense (depending if you are ranged or melee), some meatshields, or some way to stun-lock the amazons (spamming skills as a caster works, they have really bad fhr).
  • You need to know ''where'' [A2 → Dry hills → Halls of the dead → Twin seas → Tran Athulua]
  • You need a MAP!
  • It's useful to have Blink (or any teleport source) to jump over the walls or just to blink away from danger/big packs. By using a ''Pax Mystica'' runeword on your 2nd weapon you can achieve this easily. You can do this uber without blinks/teleports.

How does this uber work?
  • TA(Tran Athulua) is filled with Amazon archers (they deal decent damage) and some snakes.
  • There is a ''boss'' on the entrance, a ''Pirate of the Twin seas''. He drops a charm called ''Elemental Prism'', you'll need it to complete the challenges. And as always, you don't need to identify to transmute stuff.
    ► Show Spoiler
  • These 3 bosses are surrounded by armies of Amazon archers, so dont jump into big packs.
  • Each boss drops an unique Sunstone and gives you an unique swirl(you cant use fire priestess swirl to cube the ice sunstone with the Elemental Prism and so on) cube it with the Elemental Prism. Be careful, you have 30 seconds to cube it or the swirl will go off. Dying will also turn it off, as always.
    ► Show Spoiler
  • Each boss (priestess) is immune to its named element. Priestess of fire(fire immune), priestess of ice(cold immune) and priestess of thunder(lightning immune). They use Phalanx skill(Avoid at all cost or R.I.P), tremor(lowering your hp by %) and ice, fire or thunder nova on death.
Notes:
You dont get experience in Tran Athulua, so, dont worry leveling up over 50 in here.

Last challenge on Hatred difficulty. This one its easy if you know how it works, so, let's go.

What do I need for this uber?
  • Maximum level 80.
  • Two maps :D New one & Old one. Make sure to check it out to know where are the totems.
  • Gear check, fhr, defenses etc.
How does this uber work?
  • There are totems across the map, they give full immunity to all enemies in a radius. Destroy them so you can kill the mobs.
  • The map is full of skeletons archers, skeletons warriors.
  • There are 3 Bosses(Ennead Necromancers), one necromancer per corner but the one you appear on. They use Miasma(poison skill that reduces movement speed)
  • Each Boss will randomly drop one class charm, sometimes it's a bit frustrating. Just keep trying till you get yours. Once you have your ClassCharm, cube it with a jewel (maximum level 80). This time you dont need swirls or have a timer.
► Show Spoiler

Notes:
As you could read, unlike LC1(LevelChallenge1), there's not much into this challenge. Just make sure you don't get swarmed by immune skeletons(you will need %faster hit recovery, so cube your gear with some Mystic Orbs)

First challenge on Terror difficulty, often known as Binding of Baal, it's a bit harder for some classes(MeleeQQ) but don't worry, you can do it!

What do I need for this uber?
  • Maximum level 90.
  • Terror Act3 → Flayer Jungle → Swampy Pit Level 3.
  • Where is it located? here! I recommend opening a portal on the safe blue circle zone.
  • Any perfect gem ready to cube with your class charm.
How does this uber work?
  • Death Projector shots a spinning Mind Flay (yes, the paladin skill) in a clockwise/anticlockwise direction.
  • In order to kill it, keep dodging the ray and keep the mechanics (the untargetable mobs) close to the boss, because they remove it's shield. You can lure away the big pack and bring back only 1-2 mechanics. Just keep circling, and beware, the direction of the ray changes with each cast.
  • Once you killed it you'll get a swirl, as always, you have a timer to upgrade the charm (30 seconds), and if you die you'll lose it. Cube the CC with the Perfect Gem and voilà! Now it's upgraded :)

Notes:
You gain no experience on Terror difficulty from Death Projector itself. Keep trying until you succeed!

► MINIGAME 1, WITCH QUEEN

In the Kingdom of Shadow section it recommends getting 95% poison resist. Wasn't the maximum resist lowered in MXL 2017?

Great write up by the way!
