2.

Necrotic Wake Dungeon Buff

The Necrotic Wake is located in Bastion, the zone of the Kyrian covenant.

Kyrian players can use their Summon Steward Icon Summon Steward signature ability to reactivate Malfunctioning Goliaths throughout the dungeon.

Once reactivated, these NPCs will spawn 5 Anima Orbs nearby which grant the Anima Exhaust Icon Anima Exhaust buff, which everyone in your group should pick up.

3.

Spires of Ascension Dungeon Buff

The Spires of Ascension are located in Bastion, the zone of the Kyrian covenant.

Inside, Kyrians can pick up Spear of Destiny Icon Spear of Destiny from the body of a dead Kyrian after the first boss.

This spear can be used to stun and apply a 20% damage taken debuff to all enemies within an 8 yards circle, lasting for 10 seconds.

4.

Halls of Atonement Dungeon Buff

The Halls of Atonement are located in Revendreth, the zone of the Venthyr covenant.

Within, Venthyr players can find Loyal Stoneborn enemies, which can be made friendly for 30 seconds through the use of a special action button.

During this time, they will assist your group and damage your enemies. Your group will also gain Stoneborn Boon Icon Stoneborn Boon, which grants a 10% damage reduction buff, which stacks if you convert multiple Loyal Stoneborns.

5.

Sanguine Depths Dungeon Buff

The Sanguine Depths are located in Revendreth, the zone of the Venthyr covenant.

Within, Venthyr players can find and activate Anima Cages, which will then debuff enemies within 40y for 20 seconds, gaining stacks as they die.

Based on how many enemies are "fed" to the Anima Cage in this period, you will get a stacking damage and healing buff for 15 seconds, allowing you to potentially AoE down large packs for a huge boost!

Sanguine Depths Venthyr Buff

You can watch a complete example of this process in this Twitch clip of ShampyTV.

6.

Plaguefall Dungeon Buff

The Plaguefall is located in Maldraxxus, the zone of the Necrolord covenant.

By using the Necrolord class ability, Fleshcraft Icon Fleshcraft, near the corpses of slime enemies, you can get their proximity buffs to allies: Corrosive Gunk Icon Corrosive Gunk from Gushing Slimes, Rapid Infection Icon Rapid Infection from Pestilence Slime and Congealed Contagion Icon Congealed Contagion from Congealed Slime, respectively.

These buffs last for 3 minutes and are very powerful, so make sure to take advantage of them if you have a Necrolord in party!

7.

Theater of Pain Dungeon Buff

The Theater of Pain is located in Maldraxxus, the zone of the Necrolord covenant.

This dungeon has several banners spread throughout which Necrolord players can interact with to receive the Necrolord's Chosen Icon Necrolord's Chosen buff for 5 minutes.

8.

Mists of Tirna Scithe Dungeon Buff

The Mists of Tirna Scithe are located in Ardenweald, the zone of the Night Fae covenant.

Night Fae players are able to interact with special objects in the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon.

These objects allow them to skip enemy packs, get 10% primary stat buffs (through Savory Statshroom Icon Savory Statshroom or Tasty Toughshroom Icon Tasty Toughshroom) for their party and unlock resurrection points through the dungeon, should a player release after dying.

You can watch an example of an unlockable resurrection point in this Twitch clip of UndadTV.

9.

De Other Side Dungeon Buff

De Other Side is located in Ardenweald, the zone of the Night Fae covenant.

Night Fae players can use urn objects spread across the instance, which will start a channel (broken upon taking damage) that, if completed, unleashes Haunted Urn Icon Haunted Urn upon enemies within 30 yards, stunning them for 10 seconds.

You can watch an example of an urn being used (unsucessfully) in this Twitch clip of UndadTV.
