Spirits of Fire is themed around Fire and Necrotic damage. These Timeline Blessings are centered around Fire and Defenses with several exceptions. It's also great to farm boots with its echo rewards.

In this guide we cover Echo and Boss rewards, Blessings, Strategies, Dangerous Monsters and Echo Modifiers. Let’s get started!

Check out the Monolith Beginner Guide for an in depth breakdown of the Monolith of Fate.

Echo Rewards

Echo rewards are found on individual echoes inside of the Timeline web. Each echo has its own reward, and players can see the reward type before starting the echo. The player receives the reward when they complete the echo and return to the timeline hub.

They allow you to target specific pieces of gear such as Exalted items, Idols and Uniques or they can reward gold or experience. These are restricted to Uniques which are not boss or quest exclusives. In the Fall of the Outcasts Timeline, you encounter Boot echo rewards.

Boss

All Timeline bosses have a pool of exclusive Uniques that can drop. They also provide the player with a Blessing, which is a permanent buff to either power or farming/leveling efficiency. Just like Uniques, each boss has their own exclusive Blessing pool.

The Spirits of Fire Timeline boss, Bhuldar, Herkir & Logi, is themed around Fire and Necrotic damage. After killing this Timeline boss, The Last Ruin and The Age of Winter ones, you unlock the Empowered Monolith difficulty.

To get a closer look at his mechanics and strategies, look at the Bhuldar, Herkir & Logi Spirits of Fire Boss Guide.

Bhuldar, Herkir & Logi can drop 4 different Uniques:

  • Bhuldar's Wrath has a 50% chance to drop. It is mutually exclusive to Herkir's Vessel, meaning you always get one or the other, but not both. It can drop from both normal and empowered versions. The drop rate is not affected by corruption.
  • Herkir's Vessel has a 50% chance to drop. It is mutually exclusive to Bhuldar's Wrath, meaning you always get one or the other, but not both. It can drop from both regular and Empowered versions. The drop rate is not affected by corruption.
  • Logi's Hunger is a rare drop. The drop rate is increased by higher Corruption. We recommend farming this on Empowered.
  • Trinity of Flames is a rare drop that can only be found in Empowered. Increases in Corruption improves the drop rate of this item.

See the Empowered Monolith Guide for more info on Corruption.

In the Monolith of Fate all Timelines have 3 quests, each requiring Stability to start. The third one is the Timeline boss, which resets your Stability once defeated. In the Normal Monolith you need to do the first 2 quests to fight the Timeline boss, but in the Empowered Monolith you can fight him immediately if you choose.

  • In the Spirits of Fire Timeline, your first quest is Drowned Thetima. In it the Immortal Shamans rule with necromancy and fire. They have brought destruction to Maj’elka, and soon to the rest of Eterra.
    • To start this quest you need 50 Stability in Normal and 150 Stability in Empowered.
  • The second quest is Island Battlefield. Now the Immortal Shamans minions toil in the fires below in an apocalyptic ritual.
    • To start this quest you need 220 Stability in Normal and 450 Stability in Empowered.
  • The third quest is Eye of the Storm, where the Immortal Shamans, Bhuldar, Herkir & Logi, stand atop the caldera. Their world-shattering ritual is nearly complete.
    • To start this quest you need 400 Stability in Normal and 900 Stability in Empowered.

  • Cap your Fire and Necrotic resistances.
  • Avoid these echo layouts:
    • Necropolis Caverns
  • Prefer these echo layouts:
    • Twisted Mire
  • If you take too much damage avoid these echo modifiers:
    • Increased damage of all types
    • Enemies have increased critical strike chance

Dangerous Monsters

Each Timeline has its own set of deadly monsters that you need to know about. Learning their abilities and how to avoid them are key to surviving in Monolith as Echo Rewards are removed when you die.

Covenant of Dominion
Gorgon
Crystal Elemental
Profane flesh
Soul Cage

Covenant of Dominion have an incredible damage modifier making him deadly. His abilities deal Fire damage; Move away from the Fire DoT at all costs.

Gorgons are deadly because of they tornado. It deals massive Poison damage and grows larger the longer it exists. Be careful when running directly towards a Gorgon as it puts you into the tornado's path.

Crystal Elementals have high damage and AoE. They deal Lightning and FIre Damage. Kill them quickly with melee abilities.

Profane Flesh have massive Health pools, AoE and a potential one shot mechanic. Their abilities deal Physical and Necrotic damage and are well telegraphed; dodge them to avoid serious damage. Watch out for when they are about to throw a rock above their head and avoid the telegraphed area.

Soul Cages are dangerous in melee as their Soul Fire Breath can decimate you. Their abilities deal Necrotic damage in melee range. Dodge their Soul Fire Breath by going behind them to avoid taking some serious damage.

Modifiers
