Um, yeah. So I completed it last night, but one of the end of game bosses dropped an item called the Hero Crest, and I wanted to know what it did. Mr Internet told me that there was another dungeon, near the Double Reed Tower (where you “end” the game), that you could open with the crest. So I did.
And bloody hell, is it hard in there.
To start with, there was another boss that I’d beaten previously, but then the whole dungeon became filled with more of that same boss. And hard-as-nails pirates. Pirates who, when they fight, fight in threes. Not only that, but one of your characters gets a turn, then all three pirates get a turn each, basically meaning they get three times as many attacks as you do. And if they ambush you, you’re dead, as they get three turns in before you even get a chance to block. And even if you do block, they can kill you in two hits anyway. Gah!
Thankfully, you can just run past most of them.
You can’t run past the other bosses though. More repeat bosses at that. I’m in the dungeon looking for bits of Claves in order to resurrect her, and I’ve found three bits so far. And someone wants me to buy another for 99,999,999 gold. When I only have 81,000 gold. So that’s not going to happen. Hmm.
