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 HoT. Bolts of Warding does minor AOE damage on nearby
enemies if you land a hit.

The Elven Rogue with a Bow is an easy class to play and easiest to solo. Get
Far Shot, Treetop Sniper, and Backstabber early to become a deadly ranged
assassin. Keep an item that adds Cold damage so you can Slow enemies. Blinding
Barrage and Raise the Stakes should be maxed. Burst Fire is pretty useless as
the AOE damage is spread out too much to be deadly.

      Primary Stat: Dexterity

            Rogue Dodge [SPACEBAR] - do a barrel roll!
            Sneak Attack - Bonus 2-12 damage with Crossbow/1H Blade
            Elven Accuracy - Automatically re-roll an attack miss

            Treetop Sniper - perform a Sneak Attack with a Bow
            Backstabber - Sneak Attack damage increases to 2-16
            Elven Precision - Elven Accuracy gets +2 bonus to attack re-roll

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

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.


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:
	Right Mouse Button
	Left Mouse button
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.
