Part 17: Noble Goals.Update 15: Noble Goals.
Continuing on where we left off last time, our next room is a small platforming segment leading toward this Golem, so we can steal it and smash the crates blocking our way.
Theres also a slime chest tucked away just south of the Golems position, so dont miss it!
I think this might be the first time weve gotten an iron shield in a letter Sliborgs a pretty cool slime, given that his entire motivation is
Some punching later
We arrive at the other side of the room and find an entirely extraneous healing pad. Its unnecessary because of the next room being
I am Hollow Kitty, of the Plob Enforcers. I warn you, Im not as tame as the others. En garde!
Yep, the last of the Plob Enforcers. And one with a rather odd name, even by this games standards. Although the Kitty Shield is certainly a thing in this series
Keep your wits about you, and dont disappoint me. I have high expectations.
The Kaboomamite is the last item that the Imps of the necropolis can drop, and now were going to get a little demonstration of how it works. Lets see how to handle high explosives.
If this bundle of boomsticks collides with something in midair, it will take out any ammo in that airspace for a few seconds. Its a good way to deal with a lot of incoming ammo at once, but improper positioning might mean that you cant really fire anything until its done.
Aside from the explosives, Hollow Kitty has a host of other nice items like Meteorites and Special Medicine, as well as some Hell Scythes for bypassing the Schleimans shots.
Just stay on your toes, and youll be fine. Oh, and heres a shot of how Kaboomamite works if it actually connects with a tank; it does a series of 10-25 damage blasts! I should probably also mention that when youre carrying it, its fuse is burning down So get it to the cannons on the double!
Hey, I did that item-catching thing. Think Ill still stick to blasting the barriers away though.
But Im all right. Oh, yes. Theres life in this old dog yet!
Oooh, some Kaboomamite to call our own. Nifty!
Now then, Im sending you a special recipe of mine. I hope it comes in useful.
Obvious jokes about why Flopsy had this aside, weve just seen how effective a bit of Kaboomamite can be in battle. Its also necessary for one of the last few alchemy recipes, so if you want any more of these, youll either need third-tier vulcan ammo or to go farm some Imps.
Wait, the third teleporters here already? Its only been two rooms since the last one!
Guess what that means, folks.
Maybe I aint made myself clear. Take a hike, pal!
...Oh, hi there.
So long, slimeball! Lemme know when youve finished cleanin up, huh? Heh heh!
Hmm. This could go poorly.
What ensues can only rightly be described as a clusterfuck.
Look at this chaos. Revel in it.
The door opens once all of the Killing Machines have been defeated, but you want to know the fun part? These guys respawn. Farming them is super easy with the teleporter right below us.
Looks like the decors changing up. Combined with the platypunk door, its pretty clear were almost at the end here.
And of course, we cant go fight the final boss without one more clash against Slival.
And dyou know whos got the key? Thats right. Me! Bring back any memories? Weve been here before, right? But that doesnt mean its gonna end the same way, Flute Warrior.
Rockets always ready to take on the slime with the 10St helmet.
Time to take this outside.
Just what is it that drives you? Youre gonna say youre fighting for something you believe in, right? Okay, then. Lets see how strong your belief really is. Gimme everything youve got! But Ive gotta warn you: its coming right back at ya!
Okay, Flute Warrior. Lets settle this once and for all!
Alright, this is it! Time to show Slival the strength of our conviction!
The Schwarzman is as well-stocked as ever and fires unusually quickly for only being staffed by one slime, so its time to take the fight to Slival once again.
Because in the short time it takes to break in and distract him, about a third of the Schleimans health just gets ripped right off. Also pictured: Changing some orders around. Hoolys help isnt needed over this side, so he can chip away at the Schwarzman for now. And since Rocket wont be needing ammo, Bo can just hang around.
Damn, Slival can do a number on you if youre not careful. And heres Hooly doing his superslime thing.
The Hero Swordll cut you down to size!
No way am I letting that thing spawn. The Hero Sword is the games best piece of ammo, taking three hits to knock down and dealing a mighty 120 damage.
...Huh. Did Bo just throw something at Slival? I thought she didnt attack.
Well, I guess Bo does attack if you set her to follow Rocket! I was completely wrong about that.
...This gives me an idea.
Go for the eyes, Bo! Go for the eyes!
And so thats how Bo made Rocket the proudest big brother in all of Slimenia.
On the way to the engine room after giving Slival his brother-and-sister beating, this piece of ammo appears that I actually dont recognise which means it must be the dangerous and deadly Kafrizzle! This thing does a nice 90 damage and rains down fireballs on the enemys cannon room, preventing them from firing back for a while.
After that long slugfest, Slival coughs up our very first Orichalslime! This is the last thing Killing Machines can drop, and theyre used in making some of the best alchemy recipes.
But I was sweating so much, Im sure I lost a considerabubble amount of weight!
One word of advice: Don Clawleones a jerk, but dont think that means hes soft.
You got it, Slival. Thanks for the key.
So this is it. On the other side of this door is a healing pad and the point of no return. We have a few loose ends to tie up before we take on Don Clawleone, though. First of all, our latest letter.
I lost a whole 0.1St! So every cloud has a silver lining!
While some of the other top-tier ammo that requires Orichalcum or an Orichalslime can be farmed from tank re-fights, I think you might need this recipe to get any of these shields at all! So save your orichalcums for this one if you can.
Next up is farming up the new monsters, during which I discover that the Jinksters Frizz can allow a Slime Knight to use Flame Slash and get some extra range.
Alright, lets check up on the nine slimes we saved. Thats 99/100, with Princess Gluttonella being the only one whos still slimenapped.
I cant tell you why, but I need 20 catnips and 20 medicinal herbs to do it. Do you have these items? If so, you couldnt possibly let me have them could you? Please!
Okay, the joke is just staring me in the face here. Im fairly sure being high as a kite would help immensely with sorting out this huge mess of books though, so
Marvellous! Thanks so much, Rocket. I knew you were the person to ask! Now I can put all my precious books in order. Here. This is just a little something to say thank you.
But theres no point just making this tablet on its own. They say you only see its true power when you combine it with other similar tablets. I dont know anything else about them. Try asking around in here. You might learn more.
Well, that wasnt really worth the hassle. Did I mention the POW tablets take crazy amounts of good items to make? The Power tablet is the easiest at nine oaken clubs and nine bastard swords, and this one wants three pompoms and three orichalslimes.
Ah, Rocket. Looking for a good book are you, you young bookworm? What? Youre not interested? It can be good to read sometimes, you know.
Studying is quite a passion of mine. I could teach you bubbags of stuff.
If only people would put them back properly when theyve finished with them.
Flagslimes no like be beaten. Unga-ga-ga! Clawrence more better than Rocket!
Hello, boyo. Good to see you well as usual. Keep the noise down round here, though, eh?
Need-20-steel-broadswords-to-repair-digestive-system. You-will-be-rewarded-if-you-collect-them-for-me. Will-you-assist?
Sure thing, pal! I have a ton of these thanks to all those Restless Armours.
Digestive-system-defective. Burger-in-bun-stuck-inside. The-steel-broadswords-you-acquired-will-assist-repairs.
Truly, Rocket has helped with the noblest of causes.
I have a magical canvas that helps you diet. Would you like to buy it for 500 gold coins?
Sure, lets add it to the gallery.
Apparently you can lose weight just by hanging it on your wall. I didnt shrink an inch, though! Maybe youll have more luck.
Once again Rocket has been ripped off. Still, at least were still funding the arts.
Diet is a four letter word, friend.
I can......fly over a......bookshelf with......one jump, you know. Amazing, isnt......it?
Aw, poor Roboglop. Thats our nine slimes, so theres just the matter of our monsters to attend to.
...Okay, so they dont have the most personality in the world. Lets just go to the museum and wrap things up.
With its incredible bulk and mighty punch, this monsters the pick of the bunch! But whats inside?
The Golems only good for going out invading on your own, since nobody else will bother to use it. If you want to let your other two crew members man the cannons while you bust up the enemy, this might just be the thing for you.
Dangerous droids with a powerful beam that fries anything that happens to be around.
With high HP, high speed and a sweeping laser that ensures widespread destruction, the Killing Machine is fully capable of performing either of its roles well. You really cant go wrong with this one.
That big shield gives attacks from the front a hollow ring, but a strike from the back is just the thing!
The Restless Armour is a little bit clunky and slow, though his shield helps him serve as an effective bodyguard and distraction. Not the best of the best, but a solid choice.
And with all that taken care of, I believe its time we end this Next time, we take down the Don.
