The Void Pool

The void pool is an endurance event that pits you against wave after wave of increasing difficult enemies.

Your objective is to defeat the waves of enemies and defend the Void Pool from being destroyed.

The more waves you defeat, the higher the score you receive.

For the duration of the Shrouded Sails event, the Void Pool has been taken over by Pirate mobs.

You have a chance to receive a Plunder' Pirate Hat after each wave of the Void Pool that you participated in.


Getting Started

The Void Pool is located in the Covetous mountains near Cove and Vesper.

It is on the second level of the Covetous dungeon.

Void Pool Entrance


Void Pool Location


Once inside The Void Pool, the encounter will begin automatically if you are the first one to enter.

If it has recently ended, you must wait up to 15 minutes for it to restart.

The Battle

Mobs will spawn from 3 locations and move towards the Void Pool Altar.

You can defend the paths individually if you have enough people, but the safer strategy is to defend the choke point before the altar.

Void Pool Paths


As the battle continues, you will receive system messages on how far you have progressed:

When the battle is finished, you will see how many waves you successfully defeated as well as any points you earned through your participation. The battle will then start a timer until it begins again.



Plunderin' Pirate Hats are rewarded automatically for your participation during the Void Pool battle.

To spend your normal Void Pool reward points, speak with Vera in the city of Cove (this vendor does not have anything specific to the Shrouded Sails event, this is the normal Void Pool vendor).
