Rank S

Location: ??? - in the Kingdom of Waloed, go up to the castle in Skaithfarr

  • One of the hardest marks in the game, Pandemonium is a colossal orcish warlock who coats the battlefield in evil magicks
  • Your dodges need to be more precise than ever with this one, as many of Pandemonium's spells can hit one after another to potentially stagger Clive to death
  • This fight is as much about weaving through the dark magic as it is actually damaging the mark. With that in mind, you need to be patient and bide your time
  • Pandemonium's most destructive attack is a giant beam of dark magic, which can kill Clive outright if his HP isn't topped up. This spell needs to be dodged to the left or right, and it's reasonably easy to do so, but later in the battle, the monster will start teleporting after the initial incantation in order to catch you out. When this happens, be sure to keep moving to the right or left, and try not to get taken by surprise
  • Dodging all of his spells is one thing, but don't underestimate Pandemonium's melee attacks. His normal club swing is deceptively slow, and will almost always hit if you happen to dodge a touch too early
  • Actually keeping an eye on Pandemonium throughout this fight can be difficult thanks to all of the particle effects and explosions, but it's a necessity if you want to avoid his more direct magic attacks, which consist of homing projectiles and sigils on the ground. As always, patience is absolutely key here
