From a disorganized heap of posts on reddit and here and other places I have put together that getting to the Darker's Den is thorugh time attacks, and RNG related, and cancelling runs either is good because you can cancel until you get the "abduction" and run it then or it's bad because S ranks count toward a bonus to getting the abduction and this shouldn't be confused with UFO abductions which is a separate thing that may or may not exist, and that RNG bonus for S ranks is hurt if you cancel runs making cancelling then bad and that time attacks are often abbreviated taco for time attack client orders.
Also I've heard that you should unequip and let yourself die because then you won't be cloned and then you don't have to wait for you clone to die in someone elses run to be able to get to darker's den again, but others say if you do that you won't get the items from it which is the entire point.
So putting aside some of these points contradict each other in general even if not specifically I have several questions.
Unrelated question but it's better than spamming threads too: Is Apprentice Soul really only dropped from AQ where she spawns in randomly too and a few EQ like mining base?
