Chapter Story[edit | edit source]
Chapter 4 - A New Hope
Saving the village of Dunderhaed earned the wizards a carriage ride to Havindr, where the good king awaited them at the end of their journey. And just as they reached the city gates, the first snowflakes fell.
Area 1[edit | edit source]
Finally made it Havindr! Head west off the road immediately where you will you see yet another crashed airship. The Tornado magick is hidden amongst the trees next to the southern side of the ship. Continue north after picking it up, but turn left at the fork instead of going straight to the gate. To the north of the airship is another dead moose (Moose 5). What's up with all these dead mooses? Er... moose? Meese?
Now go back to the gates to trigger a short cutscene of the city gates opening. Enter the city. If you talk to the first person inside the city, he tells you that he saw a tall pale man with long black hair walk out of the wreckage unscathed. Hmmm... Who can that be? Don't worry about checking any of the doors, they are all locked. But there is one building near the city gates with a sign that looks like a hanging hammer (next to a woman in blue); it turns out that the hammer is actually Mjölner so grab it if you want it!
Then just continue following the road north until you trigger a cutscene where Admiral Agnar along with a troop of soldiers runs over to meet you. He says that The King cannot meet you today and advises you to rest in the inn next to him. Walk into the open inn door since you can do little else. Well, I suppose you could murder Admiral Agnar if you really want a Captain's Axe.
Area 2[edit | edit source]
While you are resting, a meteor crashes into the inn and wrecks part of your room.
When you regain control, open the cabinet next to the exit to get the Shield Staff (which allows you to boost shields faster or cast a self shield immediately), then toss the staff because it is not very useful, then head out and let the battle begin!
Area 3[edit | edit source]
Once outside the inn, head east to the bridge killing the Goblin Rogues and Goblin Bombers on the way. Once you get to the bridge you will meet a new enemy, the Orc Scout. The Orc Scout is stronger than the average goblin, but it's nothing to fret over. They have a special ability to latch onto you and start biting you, so be sure to spam the key you bound to Boost to break free. The Orc Scout also has an interesting behavior: they shake themselves dry like a dog if they get wet.
Fight off the waves of enemies at the bridge, then head east to trigger a cutscene. A familiar figure in a black cloak appears and warns you about enemy warlocks ahead. Right after this, head north at the fork in the road to reach a secret area (Secret 6) with a Warhammer. Return to the fork and head east to market. Admiral Agnar is there and yells "IT'S A TARP" before waves of Orc Scouts, Goblin Rogues and Goblin Bombers attack. Before the final wave, a Disciple makes a grand entry.
Disciples are resistant to physical damage (there's a white aura around their feet) because of the Staff of War they are holding and they have the following attacks:
- Shoots Arcane beams ().
- Shoots Life bolts (+) to heal nearby allies
- Shoots Water bolts (+) like the Druids to do an area knockback.
- Shield themselves constantly with .
Pick up the Staff of War dropped by the Disciple after the battle ends. It doubles your max HP and gives you physical resistance, very good for the solo player. Other objects of interest include the Captain's Axe dropped by the dead Admiral Agnar and a Gungnir propped against a market stall on the northwest side. Gungnir is a ranged throwing spear.
Continue east to the next area.
Area 4[edit | edit source]
Douse the fires blocking your way with water spells or Rain. Continue eastward and you will trigger a cutscene. A Town Grinder crashes through the northern wall and the three soldiers yell "FREEEEEDOM!" (watched Braveheart?) and suicide themselves on the whirling blades. After this, go up and around the debris you had just doused to the left to get the Blade of Chill laying against the side of the building.
You will encounter a new type of orc here called the Orc Berserker. The Orc Berserker loves to do a leaping attack at you to close large distances and the attack knocks you down, so be careful when you see these and try to take them out quickly to stop them from interrupting your spells.
As a fun alternative to damage spells, knockback spells such as can be used to great effect here by pushing enemy orcs into the whirling blades. If the orcs are successfully pushed into the blades they will be diced into gibbets instantly. Be careful, however, as Orc Berserkers are more resistant to knockback than previous enemies and will only be pushed with multiple elements in the same spell.
Continue east, dousing more fires as you go along. Eventually you will reach a large block in the road. Go into the open building above you to go around.
Area 5[edit | edit source]
Douse fires as you progress through the building. You will eventually come across the Conflagration Magick. However, once you get near this Magick, your first Orc Warrior will spawn at the nearby doorway. These guys have lots of health, are armored, and do a charge attack.
When you've taken care of him, head east and out of the door on the south side of the building, taking out the additional Orc Scouts inside if you so choose. Then head east to move to the next area.
Area 6[edit | edit source]
Head northeast and you will find a group of goblins and orcs with Goblin Bombers interspersed; this is a great time to try out your new Conflagration Magick if you want!
Continue heading northeast, fighting orcs along the way until you get to the checkpoint. Moving forward from here, the guards inform you that the orcs have captured The King and barricaded the door to his castle. The good news is, they have decided to use the gunpowder shipment you delivered to blow up the door. The bad news? The fuse takes 3 minutes to burn. Waves and waves of all the enemies you have seen in this chapter will continually come in from the sides to assault you.
You have four options:
- Choose to attack profusely while you wait for 3 minutes;
- Choose to heal your friendly NPCs while you wait for 3 minutes;
- Cast an AoE shield and keep boosting it for 3 minutes;
- Or detonate the charges instantly by casting a fire spell on it (the base of the door).
When your bloodlust is satisfied, enter the building to move to the next area, the King's Hall, and your next boss fight. The waves of enemies do not stop spawning.
Area 7[edit | edit source]
As you enter the room, you will be confronted by a scene where The King is about to be drilled to death.
The Machine is a wooden contraption with a drill designed to torture The King. It is operated by an orc pedaling a bicycle on its platform to advance the position of the drill. You need to kill the orc before the drill kills The King. During the fight, two Disciples will enter from the doorway in the northeast. If you kill either or both of them, more Disciples come through the door to keep the number of Disciples at two.
Use any means you like to damage the orc on The Machine while dodging the two Disciples. Some methods are:
You have two minutes to destroy The Machine before it kills The King.
An effective way to defeat the Warlock is to hide behind The Machine on the left, wait for them to run around the corner to you, cast an area stun (), then cast a couple of area damage spells () to finish them off. Also, fire is very effective against the machine.
Defeating the Warlock will complete the "Saved by the king" achievement.
As you are about to kill the Warlock, he will teleport to the throne to cast a massive lightning spell. Unfortunately for him, The King will finish him off Star Wars style. And with this, the chapter is complete!
