On each wave you will find 5 classes of creatures.



Support melee that heals all monsters near it


Ranged with Aoe spells and high damage spikes


Ranged with consistent single target damage


Tanky melee


High single target damage melee

Besides the waves of monsters, Zoltyumdrome comes with different mechanics designed to create a more challenging experience while running it, at the beginning of each wave a specific mechanic will be set and will be cast every x seconds. Here is the list of possible mechanics.

The Floor is Lava: Every 15 seconds several random fields will be marked. After 3 seconds they deal damage equal to 60% of the current HP of players standing on them

Points can be spent on Zoltyumdrome shop, which offers permanent character bonuses. Keep in mind that prices are progressive, so each time you buy an offer it will permanently increase it’s price.


Also, offers in this shop have a limit of how many times it can be purchased.

It’s also important to mention that Zoltyumdrome system will remember your last wave completed and sends you back 9 waves on your next run, which means if you managed to get to wave 25 on your first run you won’t have to run waves 1 to 16 again.
