Overview

Monsters: Dragon Spawn Monster Icon.png Dragon Spawns, Druid Monster Icon.png Druids, Serpent Monster Icon.png Serpents, etc etc etc

Boss: Firstborn, Matron of Flame

Special Rules

Defeating the Firstborn will unlock the path to the Lair.

The Lair is a narrow corridor that starts with two Dragon Guards flanking a wall that vanishes if they're defeated, followed by four Dragon Elites and finally the Matron of Flame.

Strategy

(todo: find out if any content from Annotated Playthrough Dragon Isles and Anyone Can Win Vicious Part 2: Dragon Isles is still useful)

After the interminable curse-corrosion-weaken trifectas of most Vicious dungeons, this is a fresh breath of air. Prefer HALPMEH to PISORF or BURNDAYRAZ, as there are no walls and the Matron retaliates. The final gauntlet can be bypassed with a single use of a wall-breaking ability and WEYTWUT to leap over the other four enemies.

Assassin - Play competently enough to reach level 10 in the main dungeon (A Balanced Dagger or the Goblin race may be useful); this will allow you to make short work of the Matron's escort and handle her as you would handle a slightly lighter-weight Super Meat Man.

Crusader - Resists such as the Dragon Shield's are nearly useless for other classes in the lair because of the curse bearers, but not for the Crusader! Keep some level 1 and 2 enemies alive to build momentum and truly show the dragons the meaning of pain.

Priest - If you already have the Naga Cauldron from the Naga City, you can see just how much HP a Halfling Priest can accumulate. A Trisword helps too. If possible, limit resource use with the Firstborn by using APHEELSIK.

Quests
