Prison Barrier is used to enter the boss fight with Nex. Players can either enter the uninstanced encounter or create an instance.

Instance information[edit | edit source]

Prison Barrier
Boss Nex chathead.png: Chat head image of NexNex
Access location Prison Barrier
Instance cost 800,000
(600,000) [notes 1]
Grave location Inside the Ancient Prison's lobby (requires 40 Zarosian kills or a set of ancient ceremonial robes)
Max players for Boss timer 3
Notes
Ashuelot Reis is present in the lobby inside the instance for using the bank, but will only appear when Nex has spawned when entering a fresh instance. Lobbying in an instance will result in the player having to re-enter the room (or open an Angel of Death instance via hidden door to the south) to use the barrier again. Nex will always start off with the Deflect Magic curse in an instance.
