Bestiary entry Edit

Matriarch Bomb-large


Page 1: Observations Edit

Being an amorph found in the ruins of arctic lands. The uncanny ichor of which it is composed is resistant to the cold, yet the slightest lick of flame will set it ablaze. Some effort has been made in the past to utilize this substance as a weapon, but a viable method of collection has yet to be devised. Quite recently, a similar substance was found in the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea and research is under way to find a connection between the two.

To find the Oilings, as well as the Rare Game Matriarch Bomb, the player needs to locate the hidden passage in Ward of the Sword-King. To find it, the player should head south to where Darkmare stands in waiting. The western wall here is where the hidden passage is located. When the player stands in front of the western wall for a few seconds, the wall will vanish and reveal a hidden stairway leading up. The player should cast Float on the party, as the last hidden area has a trap that immediately applies berserk and confuse and is otherwise impossible to avoid. A one time only chest can be found here, and contains either a Dark Matter or a Shell Shield.
