The Mortal Kombat 1 Nether Stone is key to the Invasion mode in a metaphorical and literal sense. It can unlock certain flaming gates and is crucial to getting some of the rarer skins in the mode. Here’s how to get the Nether Stone in MK1.
How to get the Nether Stone in Invasion mode in MK1
To get the Nether Stone in Invasions in MK1, you have to make quite a bit of progress in Invasions and get to the very end. At the end, you will fight a superpowered version of Scorpion, the Invasion boss for the first season. You will get the coveted Nether Stone after killing him.
From there, it would be wise to backtrack and go back to each Mesa (except Gateway Portal in the center with the hourly, daily, and weekly towers and the Wu Shi Academy, which is a training grounds). There are Nether Stone gates in Fenjian Village, Sun Do Festival, Tarkatan Colony, Shang Tsung’s Laboratory, Living Forest, and Fire Temple, so be sure to travel around the maps until you come across them.
The Nether Stone is not like other keys, as it does not expire once it is used. Once you have it, you have it until the season ends. Each season will presumably have an item like this that matches the theme of the Invasion boss and will allow players to go back and grab some gear.
Killing the version of Scorpion at the end of Invasion mode will take some grinding, as he bends the rules and basically requires that players use a whole host of relics and talismans to get past him. He even has some unique moves. Killing him will also unlock the “Vanquished” trophy or achievement, 1,000 Season Kredits, and a mask, skin, and palette for Scorpion.
