- The Mechanics of Prince Thuradel
In Fallen Legion: Rise To Glory betrayal is part and parcel of a rebel crusade through the countryside. Earlier in the game, one of our trusted generals stabbed us in the back, and now, one of our benefactors has gone and done the same thing. Prince Thuradel is a treacherous worm simply looking to line his pockets at your expense.
Prince Thuradel is, in many ways, a revamped version of Mycenae. By this we mean that Thuradel is a summoner who lets his minions do the talking (mostly). However, what makes Thuradel stand out is that he is much more powerful with magic, and his minions dwarf those of other bosses. Thuradel may seem insignificant, but he packs a punch.
Prince Thuradel attacks
The crux of Thuradel’s attacks is his summons. – more than any previous boss. He has some basic attacks, sure, but his team is largely focused on his summons, and if you don’t deal with them fast enough, can even conjure something much more powerful.
|Ankh of Thea||Thuradel causes an explosion dealing moderate damage.||This attack can be blocked/parried, but since it’s more or less an instant attack (after charging), it can be a bit tricky. There’s no projectile to follow, and no animation to really look at. It’s about time. The damage can be pretty brutal on your backline, so block at least.|
|Indrayani||Thuradel rains down bolts of light from the sky.||This attack is much less common than Thea’s Ankh and deals less damage. You can stop it at the right time (easy to do since the attack has projectiles), but even racking up the damage isn’t the end of the world.|
|summon minions||Thuradel summons a Magma Wyrm, a Wolf, and a Goblin.||This is the first half of Thuradel’s summon sequence. These monsters are more powerful than their corporeal counterparts, dealing more damage and having more HP. Defeat them as quickly as possible, if possible.|
|Graveyard Summon||Thuradel combines all three summons into one werewolf.||This is the final part of the Thuradel summoning ritual. The three previous spirits are destroyed and replaced by a much more powerful werewolf. This werewolf can enhance himself with Aegis, gain an attack boost, and gain lifesteal. He functions almost identically to the werewolf you fought earlier in the game.|
During our tests, we found that Thuradel’s Werewolf often broke. He would get stuck in a repeating cycle of applying buffs but never attack. We couldn’t determine what caused this, but it made the fight a lot easier.
The Mechanics of Prince Thuradel
The big trick here is Thuradel’s ability to combine his summon. The werewolf is (potentially) a very potent foe, as previous encounters with this beast show. Nevertheless, this werewolf is also Thuradel’s bane.
If and when you kill the werewolf, Thuradel is amazedthat opens it to a Fast attack. Thuradel doesn’t have much HP, and his defenses break when he staggers. You can probably kill Thuradel in two Staggers – he’s that squishy..
What specimens to take
This is one of the few fights where Zulfiqar isn’t an outright powerhouse.. It’s still good, of course, and we recommend running it on first or second slot, but since a lot of Thuradel’s attacks are indirect, his Link Attack won’t work as well. Still works wonders on Thuradel’s minions though.
Mjolnir is another great choice. – once again being ideal in the first or second slot. He’s incredibly tanky, which is always a plus. Add to that his high damage and powerful abilities, and you can deal some serious damage.
For the final slot, any ranged character will do. We like Apollo for his Falcon Finge ability, but Winchester he is a great DPS in all aspects; however, keep in mind that it is very soft.
The strategy here requires a bit of patience. Attacking Thuradel’s spirit summons is mostly a futile endeavor.. We recommend doing it for gain manabut a focus on defending is probably your best bet. All three summons are very resilient, and since they frequently move position to attack, it’s hard to focus.
The trick is to wait for Thuradel’s long charge time to pass for the graveyard summon.. With the werewolf in play, you can open him up and take him down as fast as you can. This will Stagger Thuradel, allowing you to deal large amounts of damage in a very short time. Rinse and repeat, and Thuradel should be gone for good.
