Darkshade Caverns is the second 4-man group dungeon for Ebonheart Pact players. Darkshade Caverns is located in southeastern Deshaan, just southwest of Silent Mire village. The normal mode of the dungeon is designed for level 20-23 players.It is very interesting dungeon in Elder Scrolls Online, you can find this dungeon difficulty just right, compared to the veteran Fungal Grotto dungeon is too difficult and the veteran Banished Cells dungeon is too easy. OK, share my experience for ESO Darkshade Carverns dungeon guide on veteran mode to you.
BOSS 1 The Fallen Foreman
The Fallen Foreman is a Fire Mage miniboss with a group of adds. This boss will cast a circling fire skill with high damage, the Tank do not DOT basically as long as you do not touch this skill. Other group players clean adds, note these adds will cast all kinds of AOE skills, please do not worry and kill them before make sure you health. Once these adds are clean, fight this boss will be more easy.
BOSS 2 Transmuted Hive Lord
Transmuted Hive Lord is a about 80000 health boss with two mobs has about 30000 health. It is a waste time to kill two mobs with high health, so please set fire to the boss.

BOSS 3 Transmuted Alit
Transmuted Alit is the easiest boss in veteran Darkshade Caverns dungeon. Three monster with big mouth with low damage. Note, if the one died and others no die, this one will resurrected with low health after a while.

Once your group kills adds up to a certain numbers, the boss will collapse a short time in the ground, the DPS should fast attack it in this time.

This is a group Dwarven Spiders, Dwarven Sphere and Dwarven Centurion are stand in the front of the last boss door. Wave after wave of mobs will attack you when you attack them. The dwarven sphere is the biggest threat to you need to quickly clean, the dwarf centurion can make you dead in addition to the Tank, so you group must have a good Tank for this boss, and the group also require a high DPS, or you will be defeated by a steady stream of enemies.

The Engine Guardian is the big Dwarven Spider boss. There are two sunny place in front and back of the room, once you appear here, the boss will come slowly to kill you. Note, you will be sec-kill once the boss catch up to you, so remote attack is will be safe. In addition, the boss is always between attack mode and defense mode. You can also says there are three mode, green, red and cyan.
Attack mode: its body is red, throw a high damage firebombs to you, need dodge with running or rolling, and do not stand together in this mode. What’s more, this boss will spitfire around itself, the melee need dodge.
Defense mode: when its body is green, cast poison and open 4 wrench to stop poison in middle of the boiler. And will cast a electric damage to you if you attack it.

This boss with about 10 million health, boss attack is a move combat, you can not the enough output room basically, it is no problem to kill this boss if look round you and take notice.
