Collossus Blvd Question

Aug 03, 2009
Ok, so on my Pyromancer, I just completed Firecat Alley, and I returned to Ambrose for the next quest. He gave me two quests: (1) Go to Collossus Blvd, and (2) Defeat Lord Nightshade. Defeating Nightshade had better rewards, so I did that first. After beating him, Ambrose gave me the OK to go to Krokotopia! I haven't even started Collossus Blvd yet, has it always been optional?

Yes. While Colossus is recommended, as it teachers Wizards how to face more than one opponent at a time, it has always been optional.

If you want the prize, you have to build the ladder rung by rung. There are no shortcuts.

Colossus is highly recommended for its experience. You'll gain another two levels by finishing everything in Colossus, as well as finding the last Smith for Zeke's quest; finding them all awards a training point.
