I am going to start work on guides for each instance in quest mode and hard mode.

I can only do this with your help. I will edit in all the responses! These guides will only be as good as the information shared!


Thanks to Serendrel!

Challenge Mode - Hard Mode
On the way to the final boss [name] fight, you may only kill two sentries. If a third sentry is killed hard mode will be lost.

Moving to first Boss
Minnie distracts front sentry run up the left side stairs drop down in the corner. Clear the room of orcs - laving the sentry to sit by his bell distracted.

A chief will come out, EM, kill him and take his uniform - make sure the uniform goes to someone who can pull the lunch room correctly.

At the hall way - beware of the pathing sentry. Clear the hallway.

Have one person put on the uniform, they head into the lunch room and trigger the orcs to run out while the rest remain at beginning of the hall. The uniformed person will slow one orc by standing near them, then moving away, this keeps the door open, until the other orcs have run out and despawned. Then the rest of the group can carefully make their way to the lunchroom, while avoiding the pathing sentry.



Boss 1: Varz the Cook

Morale [?]

best lines in the game.

Fight his adds down, then him, then the second wave of adds, then finish him off.

Tips:
He gives a nasty wound. When adds come they attack who he says they have no control over that and it is random so be prepared.

The Cook stuns and wounds as well - Would you like that pan seared?

IXP runes

Moving to second boss

In the next hall, there is a sentry as a lieutenant. Clear this sentry (no way around killing him) and the other adds. Beware of their war-band maneouvers! (Orc FMS!)

You can get lieutenants uniforms for everyone but there is also the suicide method to consider too.

Clear your way up the first stairs and to the hallway to your right. Then carefully clear the hallway where there is a pathing sentry. The second boss room is on the right.


2nd Boss: [Name?]

1st stage everyone can hit him, poison removal is key for hunters - POISON BLADES. His adds will be guarding the door at this point.

2nd phase hes immune to melee and returns 200% of melee damage if you hit him, ranged do your thing. Watch fire wounds as they are deadly.

Phase 3 his two adds join the boss. Kill the boss and stay away from door so you dont aggro sentry when the door opens as the boss dies. Take down the two adds. Warband Maneuvers can give fears (silence usually) and deadly poisons so again, Hunters poison removal as soon as you see poison.

Making your way to the final boss

Suicide method: Make sure your minstrel or healing RK gets a uniform. Make the death run to the final boss room and ducks into the side and hides without aggroing the boss, then those without uniforms can make the run and die before the final boss room. They can then be rezzed by minstrel. This is most likely an exploit.

Non-Suicide method: have someone carefully pull lieutenants out of their rooms to the rest of the group - use a ranged attack so you are not hit - if you are hit your disguise is broken. The lieutenants will have uniforms and you can also check the chests for more uniforms. Check all the rooms on this floor until everyone can be disguised. Then make the run to the the final boss room and duck into the corner as you enter.


Final Boss - [name?]

20 gloom just for being near him. The boss starts in heavy armour, at the end of each phase he removes a layer of armour (orcs stripping, what will the devs think of next :o ). As he removes armour his movement speed increases.

First Phase: He's pretty much immune to damage except when the archer guy[name?] lays a trap, tank drags him through the trap dps on for 30 seconds. rinse and repeat. The fire fist will be off in the corner until the next phase.

Tip: the traps will explode and stun anyone who walks through it.

Second phase the boss will only be damaged when the firefist explodes NEXT to the boss giving him tar - hunters use ONE FIRE ATTACK and the boss gets a DoT. Or if you have an RK in the group, they can use flame skills to dps the boss into the 3rd phase without worrying about exploding the firefist.

Third Phase is pure dps while managing the other two adds. Kill boss then adds.

Congrats you have gloves.

Minnie distracts front sentry run up the left side stairs drop down and start killing orcses.

a chief will come out, EM, kill him and he drops a uniform make sure the uniform goes to someone who can pull the lunch room.
(walk in keep moving so they dont see through your disguise then keep 1 in there until everyone else can make it in)

Boss 1: Varz the Cook: best lines in the game. a few ads killem, he comes, kill him.

things to remember: He gives a nasty wound. When ads come they attack who he says they have no control over that and it is random so be prepared. Ads need to die ASAp so DPS can go back on the boss. he stuns and it sucks but you'll live. Would you like that pan seared?

this parts fuzzy: 1st sentry to die is here as well as a lieutenant. you can get lieutenants uniforms for everyone but there is also the suicide method to consider too.

2nd Boss: 1st stage ppl can hit him, poison removal is key for hunters because he even says he will use his POISON BLADES *hint hint* Warband Maneuvers can give fears (silence usually) and deadly poisons so again, Hunters poison removal as soon as you see poison. 2nd phase hes immune to melee and returns 200% of melee damage if you hit him, ranged do your thing. Watch fire wounds as they are deadly. Phase 3 his 2 ads join boss dies first stay away from door so you dont aggro sentry then pick the ads off.

final boss: 20 gloom just for being near him. hes pretty much immune to damage except when the archer guy lays a trap, tank drags him through the trap dps on for 30 seconds. rinse and repeat. the fire fist will be off in the corner picking his nose till the 2nd phase when the boss will only be damaged when the firefist explodes NEXT to the boss giving him tar then hunters use ONE FIRE ATTACK and the boss gets a DoT. runse and repeat until the boss strips again. then all out DPS on the boss till he drops.

Congrats you have gloves.

any more suggestions please add.

*HM HAS CHANGED AS FAR AS WE KNOW*

during the second phase of the final boss fight, RK fire damage does not put the dot on him nor does it do continual damage. I am unsure are this time if Fire Oils on hunters works, will be testing this out soon.

Also I am not sure if traps still put the dot on him or not.

Just a heads up :)

Update to FG HM final boss again.

everything else up to this point is as the guide states.

for HM:

Phase 1: no one hit hte boss except the tank, he moves extremely slow blocking attacks and it makes it that much harder for the tank to drag him through the traps.

Phase 2: kill the fire-fist right next to Talug to get the debuff on him. DO NOT USE ANY FIRE SKILLS AT ALL AND DO NOT DAMAGE TALUG!!! This is key. Once Talug has the debuff the tank needs to drag Talug through a trap WITH THE DEBUFF ON. When this is done correctly, Talug will take damage like in phase 1. It is very easy to burn through phase 2 on 1 debuff.

Phase 3: All in on Talug. Forget the adds till Talug is dead. Once he is dead, kill the adds.

Pure of Heart or Noble Blood for this fight helps your healer and tank out quite a bit.

Have plenty of wound pots on standby if an RK/LM is not in the group.

Congrats, you've beaten FG HM!
