Chapter 37: The Master Of The Estate
Boss Battle: CorlagonBehind this door lies three Skeleton Lords, and their master...Corlagon himself, turned into a being known as a Power Lich. Tons of health, as well as nasty spell attacks that can do a lot of damage. In addition, he has one final trick up his sleeve exclusive to him - if you try to run away, he can teleport you into the middle of his room, and summons ghosts to block the passage behind you. In short, there is no cutting and running from this guy. It's time to slug it out. We start by using Ring of Fire to kill off the skeletons. That is very important, as it means we really won't have to deal with anyone but the boss. Now we buff up with Heroism and Bless, as well as various magic resist spells. Now we open the door and get in his face. The basic strategy we have is to get into melee range, then go to turned based mode. In real time, it's pretty much impossible to keep up with his spells. Turn based is the only way to pull this off. As it is, it usually plays out that Corlagon will cast two spells in quick sucession, and then sit there and give your party a couple of turns to do whatever before he casts again. Both Eno and Huaryu usually end up casting healing spells every chance they get. Without two healers, at this level someone will most likely die unless you have some luck with who he hits with his spells. (All of them hit only one target at a time.) As for offense, Cate throws her (limited) spell points into Ice Bolts before switching to melee once they are depleted. Toblerone...just smacks the boss around. Even Eno manages to squeeze one or two Ice Bolts in between healing. Corlagon's one weakness is that he doesn't have very much armor, so melee is typically the best way to go. Spells can do good damage, but they are a bit more iffy. So Toblerone ends up doing the lion's share of damage, which suits him just fine. In the end though, Corlagon falls, and we stand triumphant over his bones. Searching the chest behind him reveals the Crystal of Terrax. You know what that means... Corlagon's Estate complete! With nearly full bags, and everyone still alive, it's time to depart.
