Randolf is too hard!

Hello! It's Brivid here and one of my quests is to defeat Randolf. I found a problem with him, which isn't the shattering spell. I found out that he is cheating by the following:

  • He is able to use the Vampire spell with only One pip. I checked after he defeated me and it is indeed four pips to cast the spell. I found it very unfair because it should only be allowed if you have enough pips and Randolf is able to cast it with only one pip.

  • Randolf also is allowed to cast three spells. The shatter, vampire, and some third spell he decides. That's what defeats me every time. He is able to cast three spells and cheats with the vampire and pips.
Does anyone else have that problem with Randolf? I'm also an experienced Wizard but my level is thirty. [Actually twenty nine, I barely have anything left to go until I'm level thirty].

Yes, this has been posted many times.
Randolph can be defeated by simple planning. One or two hits only; use traps and blades.

Omg.I cant belive how many peole have said that randolf is hard for a lvl 36 character. I beat him with a lvl 27 MYTH character eAsily and no tc or henchmen. It seems like now a days most people have to use tc to play. I have soloed the whole game with a myth and never used tc or henchmen. People just need to think about their deck more and STOP relying on tc. I dont have crowns either so i cant buy super amazing gear. It was just regular gear nothing that special. You dont NEED storm spells.i beat him with 2 converts and 2 cyclops thats it. Put more thought into your deck dont just rely on power alone have a strategy set when you first start a duel and use the first tuens to think about the strategy. A lot of people arent thinking as much as people used to an they use tc to fix everything. This doesnt apply to everyone just people that think you have to buy henchmen or tc EVERY SINGLE FIGHT!

I understand completely what you are saying. He was doing that to me. Here are some good advice:

1. Get a hole bunch of gold from quests and selling equipment
2. Go to the library (any world whose library sells treasure cards ), the bazaar, or any other place that sells treasure cards.
3. Go to the section that storm is in ( he will boost storm)
4. Buy the ones that do lots if damage that you can afford.

Or you can just ask your friends for storm treasure cards.
5. Put them in your deck and battle away!

Don't use shields. One of his cheat spells removes shields.

Traps are the spiky Wards that boost damage of the type of trap. The trap activates when you use the same type (except for hex, that works with any type including balance) of magic attack spell as the trap. Traps are put on one foe (some spells that attack and put a trap on a foe or some trap put one on all foes make an exception to this rule) and will boost damage on that foe and that foe only. Let's say you put a trap on the enemy on the dagger circle but you attack with the same type of magic on the foe on the key circle. It won't do boost damage and the foe with the trap keeps the trap. That concludes my explanation of traps!

So I'm scanning through the Wysteria forums and I realize most people are complaining how hard Randolf is. Personally, I had no problem with him, but I realize others may be. So I'm putting together a little help-thingermajiggy for you all to read.

Randolf likes the spell Vampire, and the spell Shatter. Shatter takes off all your shields. He casts shatter every other round. So if he casts it one round, your next round you can shield. The big thing with him is having patience and waiting until he doesn't shatter.
If he goes first, you can have him shatter you first then put a shield on. Next turn, you can attack.
If you're going first, stack up with traps and blades. Do not use a wand spell on him! Let him shatter you, cast a shield, then use the free turn to attack. You should be able to one-hit him.
Remember, if you attack him without a shield he hits you with Vampire.
...I hope this helps some of you!
i defeet him by myself XD

Randolf is too easy!!!!!!!!!!!! They keep on saying "You won't last long without shields!", but I don't use any and I beat him on my first try before I got my Fire Elemental.

Randolf is soooooo easy. All you have to do is not put on sheilds. If you do put on one that doesnt matter as long as it has no use to you.

Your strategy is not right, usually using shields and blades, with traps. And use heal spells!

I beat Randolf without any minions or anything, but it probably took me at least ten tries. Basically, I created a rule for myself: heal whenever you have at least 250-300 health down! If you think you can go one more round before you need to heal, that's probably not a good idea, because he can take out most of your health in a single spell.

Here's a tip, what i did was that i used a fire blade and then used a firezilla treasure card.(That is for fire school only, i forgot to mention). If you aren't fire school, try something like that.

LOL, I killed him in about 3 min. I killed him with the firezilla (just like I did with the mooshu student there). Chester doors is hard. I killed him finally with a storm wizard with me.

He's easy! I defeated him no problem! All you need to do is kill him in one spell, and you done. The reason you have to do one spell only is because when your fighting him and you use a spell that doesn't kill him, he'll heal himself with Vampire. I suggest you use your highest ranked spell (obviously) and you use many blades and traps while doing it. Then you can take him down no problem. All you have to do is use those times he makes you pass so that you can gain pips/power pips so that you can use a good spell.
