Of course, this is going to be another “Fifty-Three Steps To Success” sort of thing.
What we learn when we get back to Bakku is that the village elder
who said he had the key to the Tower of Light wound up getting it
swiped by some creeper who then took it off to the tower. So, from
the sounds of all this, we're going to have to go to the tower and
beat the hell out of somebody just to even get into the place. And
that's just to get to Linze, where the guy who can help us find our
real MacGuffin this time around is.
What's been keeping me on this one is that between real life
having been a little messy lately and the boss at the top of the
tower we need to get through is one of those ones that's just a
little tougher than it needs to be, at least in my opinion. See, the
guy that horked the key from the village elder in Bakku is an Amon
worshiper who's trying to summon his patron Sinistral. It took
me a few tries to beat him. The first, I didn't know how strong he
was, so I decided I'd try again from where we left off before. After
that, I just kept taking the death because even though we lose half
our gold each time, we get to keep the experience and any items we
buy or win along the way. The downside is that anything we use along
the way is gone for good.
And after several attempts since I last posted an issue here, I
realized that maybe I'd just need to get this put up to explain just
how hard it is to take this guy out. I've upgraded and changed my
equipment to little use, and grinding for levels has not made this
much easier. So, what I think I'm going to do here is say that yeah,
there's plenty of good stuff to be found in the tower, with quite a
few new accessories to be had. I even won two Tower shields for the
hero and Aguro along the way.
From here, we'll just assume that I've stopped at the actual boss,
called the Guardian, and will pick up next time once I actually
manage to kick his ass. See you then, folks.
