Boss 1: Goo

Boss mechanics

General

  • The boss will always appear on the top of the room once you open the locked chest in the center of the room
  • Is immune to mind and body effects, and is resistant to acid damage, but vulnerable to Banishment/Blessing
  • Has no armor, and will receive increased damage from physical sources while frozen
  • Receives increased damage from wands of Disintegration or any sources of electric damage
  • Will regenerate 1 point of health on every turn if it stands in the water

Alternative phase

  • Goo will waste one turn to start its alt phase, giving you time to put some distance or to heal yourself
  • Base enrage duration is 5-10 turns, but it is doubled on second enrage and tripled on third
  • While enraged, Goo receives only half damage from all sources, but doesn't spawns minions on hit
  • While enraged, Goo will spread damaging miasma cloud around on every turn until exhausted
  • Miasma deals "body" damage, which means that it can be resisted with certain rings and armor enchants
  • Miasma is flammable just like grass tiles or corrosive gas, so it can be used against the boss
  • After enrage ends, Goo falls asleep and several additional minions appear on the top of the map
  • Amount of these minions depends on # of enrage (1-2/2-3/3-4 for the first, second and third times)
  • Goo will sleep until it recovers all of its health or is disturbed (by receiving damage or hearing a fight nearby)

Minions

  • Normally, every physical attack on the boss or its minions has a chance to cause another minion to appear
  • Such spawns of Goo appear with total health equal to the damage of the hit which caused them to appear
  • However, they will have only part of their health, but they can regenerate it while they are standing in the water
  • Chance for the minion to appear depends on damage inflicted (hits for 24+ damage will always create a spawn)
  • Wands of Magic Missile and of Avalanche deal physical damage, so they can cause minions to appear on hit
  • If minion recovers full health, it will become entranced and stop attacking you (it will start emitting black particles)
  • Entranced minions will try to approach the boss to be absorbed, healing it by the amount of their current health
  • Entranced minions are unable to dodge, which makes them vulnerable to backstabs
  • Entranced minions will not stop being entranced after losing health

Boss 2: Tengu

Boss mechanics

General info

  • Tengu will spawn in the random point of the main room once you enter there, same as in the original
  • Immune to mind effects, and resistant to body effects
  • Attacks from distance, occasionally teleports around the room
  • Teleports every 8 attacks, but this counter is increased every time he's damaged
  • Activates some of the deactivated traps on the arena every time he teleports

Alternative phase

  • Tengu will waste one turn when enraged, so run away and/or heal
  • Enrage lasts 2.5-5.0 turns, but will be doubled on the second enrage and tripled on the third
  • While enraged, attacks twice as fast and can inflict very serious damage very quickly
  • Teleport counter is increased on every Tengu's turn, so it will teleport more often

Tips

  • A Scroll of Darkness doesn't just helps you hide when Tengu is enraged, but also may make him step onto his own traps and die quickly.
  • Throwing potions help chip at his health quickly.
  • It's hilarious when you enter the room invisible, then bone him with your melee. Try it sometime.

Boss 3: DM-300

Boss mechanics

General info

  • DM-300 will spawn in the random point of the main room, same as in the original
  • Deals significant damage and has quite high armor class
  • Immune to Body/Mind debuffs as any unnatural mob, but also immune to Banishment/Blessing
  • Resistant to fire/unholy damage and being frozen
  • Moves only at 75% speed normally, so it is possible to kite the boss
  • Heals itself for a 20% of missing health when stepping on a trap while not enraged

Alternative phase

  • Base enrage duration is 8-12 turns, but it is doubled on second enrage and tripled on third
  • While enraged, its damage is doubled and it starts moving at 100% speed, so it is better to run
  • Every move will generate avalanches on two random tiles near it, these can damage and stun you
  • Traps will not heal DM-300 while it is enraged, so running away is encouraged

Tips

  • Using a Scroll of Raise Dead is more than enough to kill this boss. If you don't have one, kite the boss and attack it while it's calm.
  • Do NOT attack it while enraged, as you may be paralyzed and killed instantly.
  • Don't let it move over traps. Remember, it heals 20% over them, so think about where to step next. You don't have any time limits, so don't be afraid to think slowly.
