The altar we found in the Ruinous Crypt was, in fact, a portal that lead to the Plane of Elemental Power. Overconfident fools as we are, we jumped in…
Plane of Elemental Power
(set difficulty: hard)
Things went smoothly. At first. We cleared the first room in no time.
Then we got horrendously bogged down.
The elite Sun Demon infused one of his special attack (two targets) and did a 2x damage on me. Shiiiit. I had to lose precious cards to survive. Not good at all. I then jumped inside the second room, invisible, to get out of the way. My three companions were immobilized by the Earth Demons for what seemed like an eternity. From bad to worse.
We lost so much resources on the second room that our only chance of success by then, was to try to accelerate things. This meant letting the baddies out of their room while my friends were still busy behind me. Hopefully they’d finish before the next wave. Risky business.
The Sun Demons are very lethal and can heal their allies too. The Earth Demons have simply a ton of hp. But man, it’s the Flame Demons, with their range attacks, retaliate and high shield, that are truly a pain in the ass…
With the lot of them hot on my heels, I fled, with a timely Ride the Wind.
Me and the Brute got exhausted soon after but we’d managed to cull down the demons. The odds still weren’t favorable.
The Mindthief did a supreme effort before depleting his cards too.
One last demon, the worst of their kind: an elite Flame…
But, hey, we still had the Cragheart! I think he shoveled sand over it or something. Anyway, he doused it for good…
Damn that was close!
- Back in town, we unlocked the Sanctuary of the Oak achievement
- after many scenarios that felt like a walk in the park, this one stands in stark contrast…
- no treasure for us this time
