    Dwarven Cleric

    The Dwarven Cleric is very much a Battle Priest type with good melee capabilities and offensive spells. Can easily get swarmed by ranged attackers. Shield of the Gods is worth maxing. Daunting Light is a weaker spell, but good against enemies that are weak vs Radiant like Undead. Consecrated Ground needs level 2 to get the weak Heal over Time (HoT). Bolts of Warding does minor Area of Effect (AOE) damage on nearby enemies if you land a hit.

    Quest

    Top of the Tower

    Defeat Rezlus and his army. The army consists of Dragonborn, enemy Zhents, and Flameborn skeletons. Daewen gets taken out by magic. Union Leader Esar gets a face full of flame from a Dragonborn. Reduce Rezlus to zero health and he summons Incendius, a red dragon. Master Ayer goes for the claws, but meets the teeth.

    Incendius attacks at long range with his fire breath. This also leaves a burning floor that causes a lot of damage if you spend too much time standing on it. At close range Incendius attacks with leg sweeps, a bite, and a tail sweep. Attack both legs of Incendius. Get on the tail side of Incendius and attack the head. Incendius will lay down some flames and fly off. Get right by the flames. As soon as the flames go out, run up and press the [F] key to attack Rezlus. If you don't reach Rezlus in time, Incendius comes back and literally blows you away. You have to start with the claws again until you can take down Rezlus.

    Boss Fight

    Incendius

    Incendius flies away to do Rezlus' bidding. You jump onto Incendius' back.

    The next part is a Quick Time Event (QTE). Long live Shenmue! Watch for the prompts on the screen and press the corresponding button on the keyboard or mouse. Possible keys/buttons include:

    • [1]
    • Right Mouse Button
    • Left Mouse button
    • [F]

    Use the [WASD] keys to crawl around on Incendius' back. You want to use [W] to crawl forward to Incendius' head. There are two gaps in the dorsal spine that you can move through using [A] and [D]. You may want to stay in a gap to avoid Incendius' flame attack. If Incendius raises its head to the right, move to the left side of the dorsal spine and crawl forward. If Incendius raises its head to the left, try to get to the right side. Move forward using the [W] key to get to Incendius' head.

    Keep following the button prompts once you get to the head. The prompts come very quickly so stay alert. If you miss a QTE prompt, you return to Incendius' back and have to crawl again. Automatically stab Incendius in the eye to finish the game.

    Congratulations! Open wide for some credits.
