After dueling it out with Chester in the Illburns Ruins, Adol received a rather rude run-in with the Count, which led to him getting kicked off a ledge and dropped deep within a new area called Lava Zone. With no way out (at least not through the way he came in), he’s got no other choice than to brave the heat and try and find a way back to the surface world.
The Lava Zone is not walk in the park. Enemies here start out rather tough, and thus it takes a little grinding to catch up with them and be able to take them down. It’s also not very straightforward. We have to explore quite a bit to find the items that we need to press deeper, such as a pendant that allows us to withstand walking in shallow lava (somehow…yeah, not sure how that one works!) We eventually have another run-in with the sorcerer we met down in the mines that leads us into a fight with Guillen, and it takes me a while to get rid of him. He’s a strange centipede-like creature that emits powerful burning spells and poses a decent threat, but once I figure out his pattern, I manage to take him out.
The big boss of the area though is a bird-like creature called Gyalva, and I take him on and quickly get defeated, LOL. As a result, you’ll have to wait for episode four to see how I manage to take that guy down!
As always, I hope you are enjoying Ys: The Oath in Felghana and stay tuned – more fun is on the way!
