Death the True Power

HP ?
Quest The Netherworld
Requirement After defeating 10FS Saruin (Saruin the true power).
Rewards Reaper’s Scythe

Death the true power is a superboss of this game. To fight this superboss, you must answer Death’s question “I do not fear the reaper!”. He is a tougher fight than the superboss “Schirach”.

First, let’s prepare before the battle. Mirsa’s Armor, Bone Amulet, or Last Leaf can protect you from LP attacks. Death uses LP attacks frequently, so they are essential. In addition, it would be beneficial to have Kitten Socks to protect against stuns and glimmered Dragon’s Eye to protect against confusion. He frequently uses AoE skill “Open the Gate”, which is a ice-elemental attack. It would be a good idea to increase your ice-elemental defense. Moonstone is a one-of-a-kind item that can nullify all Necromancy Spells. It would be wise to have someone equip it.

The key to defeating Death the true power is to avoid dying. When you die, Death’s skill “Animate Dead” will turn you into a puppet. He has high speed, so you will likely be controlled before you can recover HP. Therefore, it is important to cast “Revive” on everyone to prevent death. You should also make sure to heal regularly. If an ally is controlled by him, you can wait for his AoE skill “Open the Gate” to knock them down again. Once they are down, you can heal them at once. Death the true power is not a good matchup for a drawn-out battle. Use Combo Attacks to deal damage quickly and effectively. Bow and arrow attacks are not very effective against this boss. Therefore, we should focus on melee skills. He will use the skill “Flash of Death” when his HP gets low. This skill will deal fatal damage. It can be deflected, so it is a good idea to bring a few class “Castle Knight” allies with you.



Soul Hervest Deals about 500 damage to all front line allies.
Flash of Death Deals about 500 damage to one ally. It has a chance to lower LP.
Open the Gate Deals ice-elemental damages to all allies. It has a chance to lower LP. This skill can randomly rearrange the formation of your allies, moving some allies to the back row and others to the front row.
Animate Dead Manipulates the dead.
Rain of Death Bathe all enemies in a lethal shower. Deals about 200 damage to all allies. It has a chanc to lower LP.
