Go down and around behind the dining hall to find
the door leading into the eastern keep. What follows
is from the Dungeon Crawls for Dummies instruction
manual. Just keep going until you reach the upper
ramparts of the keep and destroy the monsters hurling
Then take the elevator down to see the Commander.
A horde of Morden will break through the gates
and you must beat them off. Speak to the Commander
again. Oh look! A humongous dragon! The Act II boss
fight has finally arrived.
Send your party back up the elevator to the inner
keep. There's a circular platform to the south with
a ballista. The only way to kill the dragon is to
hit it with the ballista. Take your best-armored,
highest health character and use Wait mode to send
him/her solo to the ballista.You can only hit Talon
(the dragon) with the ballista. And you can only
do this when he's perched atop the castle walls.
There are five positions in which he lands, like
You can rotate the ballista (B) left and right using
the cranks to either side of the device. Click the
ballista itself to fire. Each time you hit Talon,
he'll jump into the air and fire-bomb the platform
for a bit.
While he's in the air, rotate the ballista to the
#3 spot, so you can quickly reposition it to any
landing spot when Talon alights once more. Once
you've hit Talon a couple of times, the Morden will
start catapulting Durvla up to the battlements.
Switch to the Mirror party order and press R to
call your party to you to help deal with the Durvla;
but, don't miss a chance to take a pot shot at the
dragon while you're at it.
It takes about 8 hits to kill the dragon, so this
fight mostly takes a lot of patience. Once it's
over, head back to the Commander and speak to her.
Ah, well, so much for Snowbrook Haven. Head up
the east side of the ramparts to the Reliquary door,
which you can now unlock with the Commander's key.
Grab the Aegis of Blindness. Before making good
on your escape, remember there is always time for
some constructive looting. Exit to the northeast.
Well, now, you didn't think it was going to be
that easy, did you?
This time, Talon's a lot tougher. He may have less
than a third of his health, but you're going to
have to chop that off yourself, without a huge piece
of medieval artillery to help. There's little room
to avoid his fiery blasts, just don't stand in them
when they hit. Keep your ranged characters moving
side-to-side and keep hitting him with powers--especially
lightning and ice based powers.
Once Talon is finally, actually dead, speak to
that blasted Azunite Scholar who keeps popping up
after you could have used his help. Take the southeast
door to the teleporter room. Grab the Greater Chants
of Dexterity, Intelligence and Strength before using
the teleporter to travel to Kalrathia.
Looks like the Morden got here first, but, amazingly,
they aren't hostile. Head across the plaza to town
hall and talk with the kid who's been thrust into
the leadership role.
