Completion rate by encounter type

Let's move on and take a look at completion rate by encounter type.

Encounter Type Completion Rate
(Level 2-72)
Completion Rate
(Level 73-77)
Completion Rate
(Level 78+)
Defeat Monsters 82.68% 82.18% 84.88%
Survive 80.62% 81.05% 82.79%
Stone Circles 76.34% 77.40% 75.86%
Defend the Altar 82.18% 84.19% 86.83%

So, the first thing you'll likely have noticed is the completion rate of Stone Circle encounters. It has the lowest completion rate of any of the encounter types and it's not even close. This encounter type either forces players to stand still for brief periods of time or can last a long time if players are running quick paths through the Stone Circles, giving more time for something to go wrong and lead to an untimely death.

The easiest encounter type is the Defend the Altar encounter. This is fairly expected as not all of the monsters are trying to kill you; they're instead trying to destroy an altar, giving you a bit of extra breathing room during the encounter.

As with wave completion rates, for the most part we see increasing completion rates for each encounter type as the area level gets higher.
