For decades, Zen has lead a peaceful life, watching the world from his home high up in the mountains and sharing his powerful light knowledge with the brave few who sought him out. But the growing Darkness caused him to take action and descend into the fray, bringing his powerful light healing powers into the legendary battle against the Boss of Darkness! As with all the Heroes that fought on that epic he was locked away in the portal for what felt like an eternity. Whilst floating between dimensions, he had a vision of the Boss of Darkness' grand plan and has been working tirelessly to escape and warn the Heroes of the coming evil!

Notes and Tips

To keep the forces of evil off his trail, Zen token 0 Zen was only available in the Portal Summon Gem Heroic Portal on one weekend (9th-13th June 2016). He'll be back at some point in the future though! Zen is the 61th Hero of Dungeon Boss.

Hero Changes (February 16, 2017)

These changes were made to balance the overpowering Zen and Kozar Bonebreaker tactics in Dungeon Raids.

  • Safe Haven Icon Safe Haven is swapped with Enlightenment Icon Enlightenment. Safe Haven starts now charged as first special ability instead of Enlightenment.
  • Removed heal component from Safe Haven Icon Safe Haven, now considered a "Buff", e.g. "Defender" Zen will cast it first round without waiting for an ally to be damaged.
  • Significantly increased healing on Meditation Icon Group Meditation and Enlightenment Icon Enlightenment.
