[+] I had this sitting on my computer unfinished for months, with nothing left to do but beat the final boss, because it was HARD and TEDIOUS and I knew it was going to be a bitch and a half and I just didn't want to do it. FINALLY just went ahead and finished it yesterday, and the final multi-part battle--like, seven different parts, each one of which is just as difficult as many other battles I've had, all in the same place, so you can't sleep and replenish your spells between bits--probably took me nearly two hours of just grinding away at it. This was especially fun since all my magic-users ran out of good spells well before the battle was over.

    • I tried not to use it much, but...not gonna lie, I got to the point where I was using Ctrl-Y on Melissan's minions (especially the damn Beholders...and shades...) so I at least didn't have to deal with them as well as with her. The final battles in SoA were easy by comparison.

    Draconis! No other boss in any video game has given me more fits than this guy. I've tried for hours, and I've determined that I simply cannot beat him without cheating.

The Imprisoned One was quite a tough fight, i had to retry many times (mainly because some of my characters were perma-killed by his nasty attacks) so for now, i'll resume the main plot :)

    • Nice work! I actually didn't challenge the Imprisoned One my first time around, although I've heard he's quite a handful.

    • Yeah, to be honest, he's dangerous because of his extremely deadly poison attacks and major illness too. Otherwise, it's "just" a pumped-up demon. Protection against evil, summoning Planetars and horrid wilting work very well against him :)
