Chapter 41: Fear Not The Mysterious Creature
- Dead end room with ogres
- Pit that leads back to stone chapel room
- Dead end room with goblins
Boss Battle: Fallen DefenderThis is it, the strange creature that the Fire Lord had never seen the likes of, accompanied by two Ogre Chieftains. He looks like...Anubis. Seriously. Egyptian motif? Who knows. His abilities...are none. I'm serious, he has no special abilities of his own. Just a large amount of health and he hits moderately hard, but not as hard as the ogres with him. They are actually the bigger threat, so we kill them first. Ring Of Fire spam to strip away at their health, then switch to melee (augmented by Bless and Heroism) to finish them off. Next, we turn to the Defender himself and pound at him a bit. He responds...by somehow not hitting us. At all. And that's the whole fight. We just kill him. Anti-Climax Boss, thy name is Fallen Defender. The defender was carrying over one thousand gold, and a key. Hmmm...remember that locked chest? I do. We head back to the first hub room, to the northern pit, and to the chest. Inside is some decent loot...and the Crystal Skull. Pre-dating Indiana Jones by how many years? Anyway, this Skull, seemingly useless, is actually critical for some of the late game dungeons. If you don't pick it up...it makes your life a lot harder. (Yay for more Guide Dang It!!) You'll find out more about that...later. One more thing to do, and that's the remaining northwest pit in the second hub room. We head there, and drop down it. We kill a couple of goblins blocking our way, and follow the passage back to one of the western rooms, opening a secret door in the process. No more monsters here, so... Hall of the Fire Lord complete! We warp back to the entrance and speak with the Fire Lord, who is grateful. And this is where the really bad Good Bad Bug comes in; if you talk to him multiple times about the quest, he gives you the experience point reward each time. Abusing this breaks the game. Naturally, we don't. Now to rest, as much has been accomplished.
Will not update tonight (due to possible bad weather). I'll try tomorrow.
