Face-off with Char

  • During this fight, you must fight Char with Magic or Ranged.
  • Teleport out and prepare for the battle.
    • Carry an inventory full of food (such as sharks or rocktails).
    • Carry a range or mage weapon.
    • Do not bring any armour as it has no effect during this battle.

  • Take the journal. (Chat 2~)
  • Climb down the steps to enter Char's lair.
  • Talk to Char to engage the fight.
    • During the fight, you should keep a distance from Char at all times.
    • The amount of damage you deal is determined by the amount of flames you have lit (100 damage per active flame).
    • As you fight her, keep lighting flames.

A simple strategy to defeat Char follows:

  1. Run around the edges of the arena lighting flames as fast as you can.
  2. When you have 10 active flames, run some distance from Char and attack her a few times, dealing 1,000-5,000 damage in total.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 until she is defeated.
  4. Remember to avoid the firewalls by maneuvering through the gaps, or you'll be hit for 1,000-4,000 damage.
  5. While Char is glowing she is invincible, so focus on lighting flames during this period.
  • After the battle ends, talk to Char. (Chat 2)
    • There may be a glitch where you can not finish the dialogue, in that case leave the cave through the southern tunnel and come back in.

Finishing up
