Survival Mode is a wave survival/zombie survival-type mode where players have to fight off waves of zombies within a time limit and a kill goal with each round changing the allotted time and kill goal, making both larger.

As the waves progress, mobs become both stronger and tougher, making them harder to kill.


The Mode plays in the Standard map with a few changes.

The map seems to experience nighttime.

The invisible walls are nearer.

Sans's skull is not placed.

  • Deathlord is a boss that was added as part of the Battle Arena event that is capable of casting spells. He appears to be wearing a Dominus Empyreus.
    • Deathlord has a very high amount of health (exact amount unknown), making it difficult to take him down without support from other players.

During the Battle Arena event, Deathlord will appear at wave 9 (Wave 29 as today.). Upon death, all players receive the "Boss Battle Survivor" badge and the Solo Backpack, and the player that killed Deathlord will receive 100 Shards and 10 Diamonds.

Deathlord 10,000 High-Very High Average



  • The zombies can and will swarm and surround you if you aren't careful. To avoid this, always keep on the move and if you are surrounded, use splash effect spells like Great Fire Blast or Blue Arson to properly attack those around you. Blue Arson is especially helpful as it harms the mobs and heals you.
  • Use Contact Spells (e.g. Magma Drop) to finish off stragglers. Don't use them in any other situation.
  • To make quick getaways use very quick and effective transportation spells like Lightning Flash or Rainbow Shockwave which will help you put some distance between you and the zombies.
    • Another method of a quick getaway is to ride the Great Fire Blast across the map as to give you an amount of time to relax for a few seconds or take potshots and close range spells such as Blaze Column, Water Tornado and Plasma Implosion.
    • You can also just get up on a high platform to avoid getting attacked. This is very easy to do because you can "super-jump" (touch the wall and jump) while zombies can't. (Note: When there's a large group zombies, beware that they can create a ladder of zombies in which one zombie can climb and get to the highest platform depending on how many zombies are there). They will begin to gather at the wall below you.
  • One tactic to be recommended is to run around trying to get as many mobs to follow you as possible and then activate your ultimate attack. Though it's not a guarantee one hit kill it will get rid of some if not all of them if their health is low enough.

Certain ultimates can't do as much damage as they're supposed to since the mobs will either continuously run around or damage you while you perform them. To get the most bang for your buck, go with ultimates like Hell's Core, Ghastly Grasp, Wind Gust Vehement Blizzard, and especially Void Opening as they effect a great deal of mobs in your vicinity.

  • Close range spells and elements like Gravity would also be super effective.
  • AoE and crowd control setups will be very helpful as it will help you kill the big hoards very quickly and get on with the next wave
  • Coordinate ultimates with your team. It usually takes more then one to take out undamaged mobs
  • Charging a spell is useful in this mode. Even better if the spell is charge reliable and it is easy to dodge but deals high damage (Great Fire Blast, Bloodcurdling Blast, Etc)
  • Powerful healing spells are super effective and recommended if it can be used to harm the mobs. To get some space using them, use spells like Wind Ascend or Gravital Globe for some space to use them undisturbed
  • Enemies in Survival Mode are not affected by certain spells from the Time element, such as Temporal Trap, Genesis Ray, and the ultimate, The World (Genesis Ray needs verification)
  • Use Wind Tornadoes for slight stun, Wind Cannon/Order Break for knockback.
  • Using Spectral Embodiment will not work on zombies as they will still see you.
  • One can earn diamonds easily by using Gleaming Borealis during higher waves.


On the off chance there are people who just can't find the setup that best suits their play style, this section of the Survival Mode page can help you find some pretty good ways to kick butt and take names. These are the setups that have been created through careful observation of stats and usefulness in survival mode. Since no one wants to end up at the mercy of these aggressive enemies, a list of mana consumption and damage output is shown so you know how much you have left and what effects take in order to act accordingly. Ultimates are completely optional for these setups.

Elements that are focused on AoE/DoT and range are far more effective in this mode than precise, one-target elements.
