The Corrupted seek to devour Aeternum and it's up to you and other adventures to fight them back. Once you get access to the Azoth Staff you will have the ability to close Corrupted Breaches. If you do so, you'll be rewarded with gold, experience, and faction tokens, as well as a Treasure Chest that scales off the level of the Corrupted Breach you closed. In This guide we'll tackle how to complete each type of Corrupted Breach.
You will need the following Tier of Azoth Staff to close the corresponding level of Breach.
Tier 1 Azoth Staff to close Corruption Breaches up to Level 25.

Tier 3 Azoth Staff to close Corruption Breaches up to Level 49.

There will be Several Corrupted mobs that spawn throughout the breach. that you will prevent try to prevent you from closing it. Clear the mobs and Close the Objective to finish the Corrupted Monolith.

Festering Hive - On the Festering Hive, you will find Corrupted Veils on each side that can be destroyed. Once destroyed, you can enter the Hive, where you will find a Corrupted Boss.

Clear the adds and complete the objective to finish the Festering Hive.
Group Corrupted Portals - Very similar to the smaller variant, Group Corrupted Portals require you to slay several large waves of corrupted in order to eventually face the corrupted boss - Group together, Fight the Waves of Corrupted Enemies, Kill the Boss, and close theAzoth Staff Objective to complete the Breach.
Group Corrupted Monolith - The group version of the Corrupted Monolith is one of the most difficult to close. In this breach, there will be three Corrupted Pylons each with their own Azoth Staff Objective. Once each one is closed, a carapace will spawn in the middle of the Monolith - break it and the last Azoth Staff objective will appear. Throughout this process, large amounts of Corrupted minions will spawn that will impede your progress.
The best way to complete this breach is to stay grouped, and move in unison from pylon to pylon. Once each is closed move to the middle and fight of the add waves and the corrupted boss that spawn in. Once down, close the Azoth objective to complete the Monolith.
