The Terror Grows dungeon is the Class: Warlord Warlord silver challenge. The dungeon is a modified version of the Hexx Ruins. The boss uses the name and sprite of Bleaty the Monster: Goat Goat, but his attributes are actually a slightly tweaked version of Stheno the Monster: Gorgon Gorgon.

Preparations

Thief Den and Mage Tower


Reward

This challenge will grant you the perplexing but powerful Item: Trisword Trisword. This item is one of the most sought-after in the game for players who enjoy playing as Race: Halfling Halfling or Race: Gnome Gnome characters.


Resources Available

The dungeon will always spawn the Glyph: HALPMEH HALPMEH, Glyph: WEYTWUT WEYTWUT and Glyph: IMAWAL IMAWAL glyphs. As well, you will always find an altar of God: The Earthmother The Earthmother. Otherwise, there are normal shops to be found throughout the dungeon.


Revenant Goats

Like the Hexx Ruins, every time you slay a monster an evil Revenant will rise in its place. However, these revenants take the form of a Monster: Goat Goat. No matter what level the monster is, these revenants will deal 999 damage, and they also have Trait: First Strike First Strike. They grant no XP when killed. There are three ways to deal with these monsters:

  • Death Protection: you can survive their attacks with death protection
  • Slow: a slowed monster loses first strike, allowing you to avoid their devastating 999 damage attack. You can use either Glyph: WEYTWUT WEYTWUT or the Entanglement boon of the Earthmother to do this.
  • Petrify: using the Glyph: IMAWAL IMAWAL glyph to turn these monsters into statues will effectively remove them from play

Death protection is a very expensive way to deal with these goats, so where-ever possible try to stone or slow them.


Boss

The boss uses the name and sprite of Bleaty the Monster: Goat Goat, but his attributes are actually a slightly tweaked version of Stheno the Monster: Gorgon Gorgon. When attacked for the first time, every remaining monster on the dungeon (including goat revenants) will turn to dust and empower Bleaty with additional resistances. It is in your best interest to remove or petrify all of them before fighting the final boss. Bleaty has 100% death gaze, but reasonably low damage. You can either use Glyph: HALPMEH HALPMEH to fight at full health or Glyph: CYDSTEPP CYDSTEPP to fight at 1 HP, whichever makes more sense for your character. Use the clearance boon of the Earthmother to restore your mana between attacks.
