What's the hardest boss you've ever fought? Please no "Oh that boss is so easy" comments, it might have been easy FOR YOU but not for that person. Anyway, I thought the boss in the Warehouse was pretty hard because you can't heal and they throw powerful spells on you. Which boss do you think was hard?
Excluding the dungeons which really shoudn't be done solo (spiral key, waterworks, mirror lake, etc.), without a doubt, Acastus Hexfin in Celestia (at least for my ice wizard).
He and his two minons are ice, which makes for a very nasty combo (especally for ice).
- since they're all ice, lots of tower spamage. - since they're all ice, the blades they cast are not wasted by being cast on the wrong monster - they love to spam ice kraken, which is usually bladed or trapped (sometimes both) -- I've lost over 3k health in a single turn when they all decided to cast that at the same time. A couple of times I've lost over half my health on the first turn -- before I even got to cast.
And while they're doing that, I have to get prisms on them (since my wizard is ice). It makes for a very unplesant expereince (solo). Even at level 70 (as my ice wizard is now), I wouldn't want to do him solo.
Hmm, there were a few tough ones, but they were all cheating bosses. I think, I'm going to exclude tough as a group and just go tough solo and mention one particular boss (hoestly, why do I even have people on my friends list I almost never ask for help. Seriously, I will fight a cheating boss and lose six times before ever considering asking for help -__- )
It had to have been the boss in zafaria that kept spamming ra. Because I don't have many spells to hit him every round, and I wasn't sure if my wooden puppet would help keep ra off of me, i just used some other means to get around it. I lost five times to that one before I worked my way through. The last time I failed, his stupid buddy stunned me so I got hit with a ra XD. The greyhorn mercenary. In retaliation I hit it with a basilisk. I just filled up my deck with low pip attacks and just picked the boss to death. Finally got to do that one solo. Briskbreeze was simpler than that guy.
I agree with everyone else. Belloq is simply unreal. The best part about that battle is you have no idea that he will be tough. I naively walked in that battle on my own the first time and found myself sitting in the zafaria commons with 1 in my health jar after a mere 4 rounds against this legend. Belloq will forever haunt my dreams...
Belloq. when you go in solo you have to hit every round to avoid Ra while he and his minion still hit you with their own spells. What if you have no attacks up? Then you have to heal, but thats not an attack then another Ra comes out and so on. I still wont go in without help.
Frostbranch. Ugh. I beat him once--in retrospect I think it was a miracle. I refused to ever take him on again, with any of my other wizards. His cheat is, I think, the most annoying in the game. I found Belloq pretty easy with the help of my son, who is a fire wiz. But I had read up on him ahead of time, unlike Frostbranch, who was a most unpleasant surprise.
Probably Khai Tengri. I died a bunch of times fighting him and had to resort to the then-inexpensive crowns henchman. I made it out alive though, which is good, and now the Leviathan serves me and me alone! Aside from the other millions of high level Diviners.....
Another boss I found frustratingly hard was the boss Myth wizards had to beat in order to obtain Medusa.
That boss does not really cheat to the point where it makes or breaks a fight, but....
For some reason I had SUCH a hard time! Although in my head, it would seem like one of the easiest battles.
Took me 6 tries to get the win. I was crazy frustrated. I believe I may have not played as smart as I could. Also, I believe at that time, the mastery amulets were not out yet, so for healing I could not rely on power pips.
Excluding dungeons like Waterworks and Tower of the Helephant, I would say that the hardest boss is Belloq. The firs time I did that place, I brought 2 friends with me and none of knew how he cheated. So, we all started buffing up our moves so that we could kill them in one hit, but his Ra killed us in about 5 rounds. I never did beat Belloq until one of my friends told me how he cheated. Even with the cheating, he's hard; you have to kill him with moves that you can cast every round if you want to beat him. If you don't, you get hit with his Ra and THEN with their normal attacks. I'm not looking forward to fighting him again, but I need to on my myth character so oh well
The boss to get Efreet. That is by far the HARDEST boss in the game. And unlike Ra who other balance can go in to help. Your stuck doing it alone.
I agree with you both. Belloq and the boss to get Efreet are really hard! It took me forever to finally defeat Belloq and I had to buy three Henchmen [all lvl 70] to finally defeat the boss to get Efreet. They are both really hard. I will gladly never fight the boss to get Efreet and I really hope I will never fight Belloq again.
i agree beloq, but my brother and i found a very simple way to beat him if you need help. he put on his novice wand and put all one or two rank spells in his deck. I bladed and he kept attacking each turn, a reshuffle treasure here and there if needed and we beat him. I did also have a life with me (my dad) it worked so perfectly we only got a ra once when my bro fized. I killed him with an efreet that had tons of blades. it felt good for what he did to me before that battle, i died a lot.
