As with The Golem boss fight you’ll fight alone and anything outside of your town parameters is removed.

You’ll want a minimum of 2 Ballista’s and some dirt. When the Hades Condor spawns you’ll notice a path created through the poison, this is where most of your battle will take place. You need to build the 2 Ballista’s 3 high, so on top of 2 high stacks of dirt, aimed at where the Condor spawns. He has several abilities. Summoning allies, simply chop them down. A large green AoE, a real pain that can destroy your Ballista’s, a tornado that throws you around the area and a paralyze blast.

It’s a battle of attrition really. Bring plenty of healing items. Whenever it says he is resting his wings, use both Ballista’s to take him down. During the other waves stand away from the Ballista’s to protect them from the AoE attack and wipe out the additional enemies.

If you need help with the boss fight check our guide on how to kill the Hades Condor. Once you’ve done all of the quests, head North to the next pillar of light to move on to Chapter 3.

If you want to complete all of the challenges check out our How To Repair Ruined Roof, Thalamus’s Puzzles and Crown Goowels guides.

  • Vash Yuki

    There is a small error with the guide. Hidden side quest 3 says to go south west from hidden side quest 1, but it would be from hidden side quest 2.

  • Rydain

    For the vault dragon, just bring some evil idols. If you haven’t done the Thalamus puzzle that gives them, you can loot a pair from the wolf dojo. The dragon can’t go anywhere and will easily be roasted to death.

    • Esther Reyer

      You can also just be cheap and stay at the door with a ballista and wait till it kills him lol
