1. Introduction
******************************************************************************

I am MysticWeirdo also known by my real name Warren Grieder.

Eragon is based on the books and movie by the same name.  You take on the role
of the title character, Eragon, and on occasions his dragon, Saphira.

This guide is intended for the Xbox 360 version of the game.  The back of the
box cover indicates that there is excluvise content in this version: "New Kull
boss battles and two additional levels including the Ruins of Orthial".  If
other versions have different exclusive content it will not be covered in this
guide.

One of the progression summaries at the end of the missions says you can plug
in a second controls where the second player can control your companion while
you control Eragon.

4. Walkthrough
******************************************************************************

Having complete the game on Hard I'll base the guide on that difficulty, if
your playing on a lesser difficulty the same strategies will work there as
well, although you can get away with a lot more.

If you find yourself low on health and your fury mode is full, you can use
your fury mode to heal you and your ally (Eragon mode only).  Otherwise, try
to save if for fighting a large number of enemies in the same location.

Eragon and his companion can heal be collection red orbs with are dropped by
some enemies.  The companion will need to be lured through them which is a lot
easier said than done.   Chest may also contain red orbs if Eragon is injured.
If he is not injured they will contain green orbs with will help fill the fury
meter.   Enemies also drop green orbs when they die, which are collected
automatically.


=======================
4.1 The Spine Mountains
=======================

The game begins with you tracking a deer.  Follow the path until you get to a
small ledge around a turn to the left.  Jump up it and another following it.

Now you'll need to break through several patches of brush using the attacks
displayed at the top of the screen:  Use either a quick or strong attack for
the firsh brush (A or B),  a knockdown swipe for the second (B, A, A),  a
knockdow smash for the third (A, B, B), a stun attack for the fourth (A, B,
A), and a grapple combo for the last (B, A, B).  You may need to put a bit of
a pause between the first and second attacks on the grapple combo to get it
right.

Continue following the path around a bend to the right.  Jump to grab the
ledge and pull yourself up.

*CHECKPOINT*

Keep Going around the bend to the right and jump and grab the ledge.  Shimmy
left across the creek.  (Note the glowing blue object in the distance, that's
the secret egg for the mission.)  Drop down on the other side.

Follow the path around a turn to the right.

*SECRET EGG* Before following the deer through the stone arch, jump and grab
the ledge to the right and pull yourself up.  Walk to the secret egg to get
it.  Return to the path.

Go through the stone arch into the clearing.

Its time for some target practice with your bow.  Use quick shots (RT and
press A) on the first six targets.  The last four will require precisions
shots (RT and hold A until the control vibrates amd release.

Progress Summary:
Eragon has found a strange Blue Stone!

Use your combos to gain an edge in battle:
B, A, A = Knockback Swipe
A, B, B = KnockDown Smash
A, B, A = Stun Attack
B, A, B = Grapple Combo


=============
4.2 Carvahall
=============

Eragon is joined by Brom is this mission.  You begin fighting a large number
of swordman.  These are amateurs so you can get away with just mashing randow
combos.  If they are some distance from you try to soften them up with quick
shots from you bow (just don't be moving when you try to pull your bow or
you'll roll towards them instead).  Precision shots will take them out with a
single hit if you have time to get them off.   Grab any red orbs they drop if
you get hurt, or try to lure Brom through them if he does.


After the battle you'll be in a cellar.  Smash the chest in the background to
reveal a red orb (aka Large Healh orb), get it if your injured or lure Brom
through it if he is.  Go right and smash another chest.  This one contains a
green orb (AKA super orb) which will help fill the fury meter.

Smash the barrels to the right and go through the doorway.

*CHECKPOINT*

You'll now enter a battle agains sever Urgals, large men which are very strong
at hand to hand combat.  They attack in two's.  Try to do a jump and stong
attack to stun one of them and follow up with a combo.  When your's is dead
finish Brom's off with a precision shot.  If you need it, theres a chest on
the right side that you can smash for health after dispatching a few Urgal.

*CHECKPOINT*

Use a precision shoot to take on the lone gaurd here.

*SECRET EGG* Jump and grab the ledge to the left of when the guard was and
pull up to the loft here to get the egg.  Drop back to the ground.

Another battle ensues, much like the one at the beginning of the level.  You
can handle in the same way.   They are a couple of chest to the right if you
need to heal.

*CHECKPOINT*

The Ra'Zac are on the other side of a wooden barrier from where you on.
Quickly smash the barrels and hanging meat to get to the right side of the
room.  There a chest part way if you need to heal.  DO NOT try to fight the
Ra'zac.  All you need to do is make it out the door on the right side of the
room.

follow you down.

Head left along the walkway.  Use precision shots to pick off the swordsman

==============
4.4 Daret Town
==============

The town is on fire.  You'll need first a seeming endless stream of enemies
while villager put out the fires in several locations.

You can give the villagers some initial help in the first area by destroy the
water barrell by the door to the right.  After doing so come forward in the
screen to the edge of the water.  From here you can use pull magic to displace
the Urgals whenever you're magic is fully charged, and precison bow shots to
get others are a distance.  If one gets too close when your magic isn't
charge, run around a bit until it is, or try a jumping attack.

Once the flames are out go through the door to the right.  There a chest
inside under the stairs to the right to increase your health or fury.  Go up
the stairs, the bottom of which is toward the back left of the room.  Go
through the door to the left when you reach the landing at the top of the
stairs.

Go along the walkway, around a corner to the right and another to the left to
a building which a couple of guards who are easily dispatched with sword
combos.  There's a chest inside the building to increase your health or fury.

Continue to the end of the walkway and use your magic to open this side of the
exit gate.   Backtrack all the way to the beginning of the level.

*CHECKPOINT*

Same strategy as when you started the level except there is no water battle to
break to help the villagers putting out the fire on the door the left.  Use
pull magic by the shore on the Urgals and precision shots to get through the
enemies.

Enter the building to the left once the fire is out.  There a chest hidden
under the stairs in here.  Climb the stairs and use pull magic to deal with
the enemies on the other side of the wheel, switching to quick shots while
your magic recharges.

Jump and grap the ledge to the right of the wheel.  Pull up and smash the
chest for health or fury.  Follow the walkway around the room to the other
side of the wheel.

Jump and grab the beam beside the wheel and smimmy to the other side.  Drop
down.  Use push magic on the enemies here.  You may need to block or use
jumping attacks while your magic recharges.

Go through the doorway to the left.  You can pick off a couple of enemies on
the ground from the walkway outside.  Follow the walkway and enter the
building at the other end.

Go down the broken stairs inside the building.  When the Urgals break through
the wall, go up the bottom of the broken stairs and use precision shots on
them.

Go throug the hole the Urgals made into a burning watehouse.  Jump and grab
the ledge to the right, pull up.  Do the same with the ledge above it.  From
the second ledge, jump and grab the beam and shimmy left across the room to
the landing on the other side.  Go out the door.

Go left along the walkway if you want a chest.  Return to the beginning of the
walkway and break the barrels to extinguish the flames.  Go back into the
building and drop to the floor.  Leave by the door on the ground level.

* CHECKPOINT *

Start crossing the bridge to the left.  The two soldier in front can be
dispatched with precision shots, but you'll need to use pull magic on the one
with the shield to rip in away from him.  After his shield is gone he's just a
normal soldier.

Past that trio is another area when you need to defend the villager
extinguishing the flames.  Destroy the four barrels by the door to the right
of this area.  There a chest behind the barrell on the left side of the door.

Like the first area you can head to the water in the front left of the screen
and use precision shot on enemies in the distance and pull magic on those that
manage to get close.

Once the flames are out go into the building and hitting the barrier on it
several times.

*CHECKPOINT*

The men running towards you are trappen villagers.   Note the chest on the
start to the right of the bar.  Save it unless you need health now.   Deal
with the Urgals that break through the wall.  You can try push magic to send
them into the flames.

Go through the hole the Urgal came through.  Come forwarding into the screen
to get onto the platform.  From the left side use your magic on the boards
leading against the wall to form a staircase.  Climp up it.

Go along the walkway parellel to the stairs and stair using precision shots on
the enemies.  When the Urgal reach you, run to the other end to take a shot
from their and repeat as necessary.  Pull the shield away from any shielded
soldiers with pull magic.  If you get injured use the chest at the left end of
the walkway.

After dealing with the enemies attack the debris that fell when you reached
the top of the start.

*SECRET EGG*.

Instead of going the the door, balance along the rafter to reach the secret
egg on a platform to the left over the bar below.  If you fall off you'll need
to go all the way around again.  Backtrack to the door.

Go through the door.  There's a chest to the right along the walkway.  Go left
and deal with the Urgal,  Try to use push magic on him to send him to the
ground.  Afterward open the second side of the gate from here.

Head back toward to the building, you'll need to deal with two Urgal, either
with precision shots or push magic.   Go back through the building and into
the area with the gate.

*CHECKPOINT*

There are several shield soldier waiting for you.   This may be a good time
for fury mode if you have it.  Whenever archers appear on the walkways by the
gate, use pull magic on themm.  The shielded soldiers can be dispatch by using
magic on the spears in the center if the Urgal will let you.   Deal with the
Urgals using pull magic when your by the water towards the front of the
screen.

If you didn't use it when the fire was being put on there's a chest under the
walkway to the left.

================
4.5 Daret Bridge
================

Use a precision shot to get one of the soldier running towards you.  Push
magic will take care of a second.  Sword combos or push magic when it
recharges can be used on the last two.

Go along the docks the soldiers ran down an turn the corner to the left.

You'll need to summon Saphira twice (LT + A) to take out the two towers.  Use
push magic on the soldier on the down to send them over the sides, or
precision shots if your far enough away.  Sword combos will be good as well.
There's a chest hidden behind the side building on the docks if you need to
heal.

Go through the gate to the next section of the bridge.

*CHECKPOINT*

Use push or pull magic on the arching on the platforms to the right of the
screen and precision shots on the enemies coming towards you on the bridge.
Use sword combos or push magic if they get to close to you.

Go a bit left on the bridge and start using precision shots and push magic on
the Urgals.  Summon Saphira to take out on the towards.  Deal with a few more
Urgals and summon spahira again.

Destroy the debris to the left front.  Go as far left as you can and you'll
fall onto a rock.

*CHECKPOINT*

Use magic on the logs to forw a bridge.  Cross it.  Use prescision shots and
pull magic on the archers.  Jump and grab the ledge.  Pull yourself up.

Use magic on some more logs.  Use push magic on one of the soldiers and sword
combos on the other.  Cross the bridge.  Use magic on some more logs.  Get the
archer with a precision shot and use push magic on the Urgals.

Cross the bridge and climb the stairs.   Use pull magic on each soldier in
turn and a precision shot to finish him off.   After dealing with them process
left a bit and start using push magic on Urgal just after they climb up.  For
the ones that come up while your recharging you'll need to fall back and
circle around them to position yourselft to push them off.

Head towards the gate, there's a chest to the right..  Use magic on the right
side and them the left, Brom will take care of the bow work to open the gate.

*CHECKPOINT*

Use push magic on the Urgals and try to get precision shots in on the other
enemies, or sword combos if them get close.   Try to clear the top end of the
path first so you can give yourself room for the precision shots.

Go down the path and pick off an couple of archers on the path below with
precisions shots.  Drop to the path below at the end of the walkway.  Pick off
the two eniemies with precision shots and get the chest if you need it.

Go left along the lower walkway.  Use pull magic or precisions shots on three
Urgals that will appear.  There's a chest by the buide at the corner before
the ramp up.

*SECRET EGG*

Drop to the right at the building here.   Drop down one more level to the left
to find the secret egg.  Jump, grab and pull up twice to get back to the path.

Go up the path amd jump to get back to the main bridge.

*CHECKPOINT*

You'll learn how to use magic arrows now.  (LT + RT + A).  These will be a
staple in combat from now on because of their knock down ability.

A single magic arrow shot take out the lot on the platform in the distance.
Use precision shots on the two archers that appear afterwards.

Use magic to move a beam closer to you.  Jump and grab it.  Shimmy along it
and drop to the platform at the other end.   Use magic arrow to deal with the
Urgals and dodge them while it recharges.  If by some change they are only
knocked down use a kill attack on them while they're down.

Jump up to the next platform.  Jump and grab the ledge where the archers
where.  Use the chest here to get some health.

This is a good spot to use fury mode.  Keep shooting magic arrows to deal with
the enemies until the cutscene kicks in.  If you don't have fury, just dodge
the enemies while it recharges.

Progress summary:

Eragon Has Learned How to Fire Magic Arrows.

Pull and Hold LT+RT Then Press A to Fire Magic Arrows.


================
4.6 Ra'zac Chase
================

This is the first level that you right on Saphira's back.   The first section
is a bit of a tutorial in which you learn about restoring health by eating
doves.  There will also be notes on reducing damage (X), tail attacks (B),
speed burst (click both thumbsticks), and use of magic arrows (RT + A).

Follow the river to a fork where Brom will release a dove which will fly left
or right.  Follow it and fly through it to eat it.  I found it easier to catch
on the right fork which doesn't have as trick a turn.

On the first pass there will be a second dove where the path rejoin.  Don't
worry about this if you miss as it can be difficult to catch.  You'll be
prompted to use the speed burst on the second pass.  (I've had no use for
this.)

You enter a wooded section now.  Stay high and above the trees and above the
path to avoid taking damage.

You'll come to a small falls ahead.  The first pass you'll be prompt to
practice reducing damage on the boats with the wind shield (X).  The second
pass you be prompted to use the tail attack (B) on them.

You pass through a stone arch to the starting point.  You can get is some
target practice with your magic arrows on the target to the right.

Keep circling around this loops until you catch four doves.

*CHECKPOINT*

You'll now in pursuit of the Ra'zac.  Just keep firing magics arrows
continuously hear.   There will be a dove whenever there is a choice of paths,
do your best to follow them.

NOTE:  There's a checkpoint when you'll done 50% damage to the enemy.  Where
this happens doesn't matter as restarting from the checkpoint brings you back
to the beginning.

Follow the river.  Watch for the first down around a bend to the right where
there is a store arch.  Go on the same side of the arch as it does.   You'll
be chasing it around a bend to the left.

Keep following the river and turn right into a vally.  Another dove appears
ahead and chooses the left or right fork.  Follow it.  You should catch up
about where the paths join up again.

The path turns right and then left into a cave.  Avoid the stalagmite and
stalactite and you follow the winding tunnel.  A dove appears at an
underground lake, try to fly through it and the path turns left out of the
cave at a waterfall.

*SECRET EGG*

As you loops around the basin fly through the base of the waterfall to get the
secret egg.

You'll now enter an area with giant trees.  Steeer around the trunks.  You may
need to use the shield agaist the braches.

A dove appear part way through the area.  (You'll likely hit the checkpoint
around here as well).  Another dove appears near the end of this forest.


You'll emerge over another basin and will loops around to enter a cave.
You're actually going back the way you came.  After leaving the cave watch for
the dove at the fork and follow it, but beware of the falling try.   Look for
another dove when you get back to the stone arch.

You should inflict enough damage before you get back to the start.  If not
you'll loop back around in a narrow tunnel.

4.7 Trapped!
============

This level takes plase in a small area where Saphira is trapped under debris.
You must free her while dealing with the Ra'zac.

*SECRET EGG*

At some point during this battle go the the front right of the area to find
the secret egg.


Use magic on three of the roots over Saphira and one set of lots.  Take
quickshots at the Ra'zac which Brom should be keeping busy while your magic
recharge.  Use magic on one set of logs after dealing with the roots.

Help Brom with the Ra'zac by using Magic Arrows followed by quick shots will
your magic recharges.   If you get into trouble there are chests to the left.

Repeat the proceed with a second second of brambles and a log.  Help Brom out

*CHECKPOINT*

Both Ra'zac are out now.  The are four roots and a log to remove from Saphira,
make sure you're well away from the Ra'zac when you use your magic or they
will interupt you.  You do not need to attack the Ra'zac, Saphira will take
care of them once she's free.

================
4.8 Gil'ead City
================

For the most part this is a stealth mission.  If you mess up on part of it,
all is not lost, you'll just have a tough fight on you hands as the soldier
are now professionals so sword combos will be less effecting.  Fortunately
with the magic arrow you can use one of those to knock a group down, use a
kill attack on one of them and run around while your magic recharges.  This
walkthrough will cover the stealth aspect.

Go right from where you start.  Go toward the wall at the back of the screen
when you reach the stocks.  Use magic on the scaffolding.   (Note the is a
chest hidden to the left, save it for now in case you mess up and need health)

of you. Pull up.  Go on the wider part to the left and jump and grab the
window to the right of the barrels. Pull yourself into the build and head
right. Jump and grab the beam when you get to the balcony.  Shimmy right and
drop onto the other balcony.   Ignore the chest, you can't get there from
here, instead go right and drop on the secret egg.  Drop to the ground from
here.  Come forward until you can see the round platform with the barrels
beside it again.

Now go through the door in the building to the right. Go up the stairs inside.
On the upper floor to the front right and jump and grab the ledge above the
fire.  Jump and pull up twice.  Jump to get to the roof.  Head right and get
the chest.  Return to where you game up.

The are two gaurds across the way that will spot you as you try to cross the
boards to the left.  Pick them off with a magic arrow precision shot and
follow up with a precision shot to get both of them with minimal damage.

Go left across the boards.  Get the chest here, this is the one you ignored
while going for the secret egg.

Follow the board to the back of the screen and jump up.  Go right along
another board.   Drop down through the gap above a door.  Jump and grab the
beam to the right of the door.  Shimmy right and drop onto the roof there.

This is a another stealth segment.  Wait for the marching soldier to turn
towards the front of the screen and head left.  Go into the barracks.

top crate to get into the loft of the barn.

You've got one shot to balance across the rafters to avoid a difficult fight.

other end and use magic twice on the gate to free yourselves.

Use magic arrow to knock down the enemies and kill attacks when they're on the
ground.  Avoid them while your magic recharges or use precision shots on
archers.  Use fury mode if you have it available so you can use a magic arrow
every second shot.  Try to work you way left and then back around the wall.
If you need chests there is one to the right of the trap you where in and
another at the left end of the wall between the trap and the back are.

After dealing with the soldier, go to the back area and use magic on the wall
by the catapult to form some stairs.   Jump up the stairs and go to the right

in one at a time at scheduled intervals.  You'll need to kill them quickly so
use precision attacks to blind them and start hacking away at them, repeating
until they are all dead.  Don't try to ride them, it will just waste valuable
time.  Use fury mode if you have it to speed up the process

If you kill them fast enough you go into the next room when a four one crashes
through the gem.  Otherwise you go through with him and will need to fight the
battle again without the benefit of fury.

There are four chests in the arenao nn the gem, but you don't have time to
worry about them.

Take on the Urgals in the camp here with magic shots amd precision shots.  Go
up the left path and use magic to drop stagmites onto the archers head.
Repeat with a second bath.  Use precision shots on any survivors.  Get the
chest here.

Backtrack and take the right path forward from the campsite.  Use magic and
quickshot on the enemies or retreach up the path to give you room for
precision shots.  When the enemies stop coming enter the cave they were coming
from.  Go through the tunnel and drop down at the end.

*CHECKPOINT*

Use precision shots on the archer.  There is one that you can't get from here,
so head left along the path and jump, grab and pull up twice to get to the top
of the plateau where he is.

*SECRET EGG*

Drop into right end of the gap just behind where you reach the top of the
plateau to get the secret egg.  The glow gives it away.  Climb back out of the
pit where the egg was.

Once here you'll need to use magic and precision shots on several enemies.
Try to lure the Urgals forward into the lower part of the plateau and go back
up to hide from the archers fire by the spear.  The Urgal will have trouble
getting back up to you giving you an opportunity to use magic shots on them.
A magic shot could also be helpful for the group of three archers to the
right.  The rest can be dealt with with precision shots.

The are two chests on the plateau if you need to heal.   Take the path forward
into the cave when you're done here and deal with two last archers.  Use magic
to open the way into the cave and fullow the tunnel to the main campsite.

*CHECKPOINT*

Fury mode would be a good thing now.  Use magic arrows to dispatch the horde.
When fury runs out start using quickshots as well.  Use the fire as cover, the
Urgals will blunder into it and damage themselves.

Play Tip:  You can Stun Enemies by Blocking at the Right Time.

Get the chest to the left of when you start.  Follow the ledge your on to the
three chests in the distance.  Use a magic shot and kill attack on the Urgal
that appears when you break one of them.

Go back to the starting point and drop down one ledge to the right.  Go
forward to the chest and use precision shots on the archers below.  Get the
chest.

Come to the front of the screen and go down the stone steps to the right.  Go
forward to where the archers where and get the chest there.   Use magic shots
on the Urgals and start falling back to use precision shots.  Go back to where
they were and drop to the right.

Use a magic shot on the Urgals on the bridge and quick shots to finish them
off.  Cross the bridge.  Fire a magic shot at the Urgal and finish him off
with quickshots.  Go to the end of the path and get the chests.

Come back a bit and drop to the right.  Come forward down the stone stairs.
Go left across the bridge.  Call Saphira to take out the archers on the
previous bridge.  Use magic shots and kill attacks on the Urgals and the left
end of the bridge.

Go down the stone stairs to the left.  Start heading under the stone arch to
the right.  Call Saphira to take out the other bridge and fall back to avoid
the arrows.

Go right and then forward. Use magic shots and quick shots on the Urgals.
Keep going to the front of the screen.

*CHECKPOINT*

You're in an area of mist.  While there are chests throughout it, there are
also Urgals.   Keep to the left wall to face a minimal number and reach the
exit from this area in the far left corner most quicking.  When the Urgals do
attack use magic shots followed by quick shots.  Be ready to roll to the side
when one gets to close.  You should be attacked about six times with two or
three in the last batch.

*CHECKPOINT*

You can go left to get a chest before going doing into the misty gully by the
stairs to the right.

*SECRET EGG*

Just follow the left wall as it curves right to reach the egg.  Come back a
bit to where there is a small ledge on the right side of the path.

By this time the Urgals have reached you.  They are endless in number here so
don't waste time fighting them.  Keep the wall to your left until you get to a
pressure plate beside a chest.   Get the chest and step on the plate.

Quickly backtrack to the small ledge just before where the secret egg was.
Jump, grab and pull up to the ledge above.  Don't fight any Urgals, there
isn't time.   Head towards the bridge, across the log, and forward into the
screen to get to the second plate.  Quickly return to the bridge and cross it.

Use magic shots and quickshots on the Urgals in the canyon here.  Follow the
canyon around a turn to the left and drop down.

*CHECKPOINT*

Go left.  Get some of the 5 chests if you need health or fury, otherwise save
them in case you do at some point in the next stretch.

Go upstream using precision shots on the Urgals in the stream.  Run back
whenever the Urgals on the shore tip one of the big rocks.   The second and
third rocks will crush the archers closest to them if you trigger them without
dealing with the archers yourself.  In all there are six rock that get tipped.
Get out of the water past the last two by jumping onto the left bank.

Follow the bank into the screen.

*CHECKPOINT*

You'll be faced with a lengthy battle again a horde of Urgals and three Kull.
If you're really lucky Saphira will grab all of the Kull, otherwise you'll
need to try to blind them and hack away at them.  Use fury mode if you have it
to get through a good chunk of the Urgals with the fast charging magic shots,
although you may want to save it for a while incase you or Murtagh get into
trouble with your health.

Once the Kull have been dealt with the Urgals are matter of using magic shots
followed by kill attacks.  Use precision shots if you have room  when your
magic recharges.

Aria's health in the top left is a time but it should be an issue.

If you don't have fury (like if you contine from the checkpoint) quickly get
the six chests to fully charge up.

one end and an indent part at the other.  The green dot represent the health
of the towers.

Left get the egg first before you start attacking.  You start at the indent
end of the map facing the two paths in the center.  Go to the right of the
center tower.  Keep right of at the rounded end to take the outer path with
three towers.  The egg is to the right between the first and second towers on
this path.

After you get the egg, start flying around alternating a flame breath attack
and two magic arrow.  Try to get the flame attacks over the oil fields. When
you get to the junction points on the map watch for the dove and follow the
same path it does.  Keep this up and you should be able to finish the level

=================
4.18 Final Battle
=================

The last mission is an aerial battle again Durza.   There are no checkpoints
in the mission.

*SECRET EGG*

It somewhere in the cloudy areas, not in the clear sky.  You may see it very
early in the flight or much later.   With few frame of reference it's hard to
describe how to get to it.   You're bound to see it after a few attempts at
the mission.  However without checkpoint, getting the egg means nothing if
your don't survive the mission so concentrate of perfecting the boss strategy
before worrying about it.

Durza has three types of attacks: fireballs, flame breath, and dark magic.  By
continuously circling the screen you dodge the worst of the fireballs and
breath attacks.   The dark magic must be repelled by repel magic (LT + A).
Unforturnately the dark magic is the same color as the clous so its hard to
see.

The best way to deal with Durza is to circle counterclockwise and constantly
attempt repel magic.  After you see the end of a string hit him, unfortunately
not damaging him through, fire a single magic arrow and resume the repel
magic.  Keep this up until he makes his flame run attack.  He'll be vulnernate
as he come back in front of you so use a flame breath attack on him, trying to
guess which direction he'll return from, this will do a lot of damage to him.

You may spot the occasional dove, but it is dangerous to go after them as it
will leave you open to the fireball.  Only the secret egg is worth going after
if you happen to see it.

Progression Summary

Play Tip:  Every level contains a secret dragon's egg that unlocks bonus
content.  Find them all for a special surprise!


================================
4.19 Throne Room (Bonus Mission)
================================

This level is an endless battle again all of the enemies you've faced it the
game, expect Durza unless he appear some after wave 30 which is the furthest
I've made it.

You'll start of against soldiers for several mission, before Urgals start to
appear.  A single Ra'zac will appear in wave 16.  Kull will start appear after
that.   The 30 wave that did me in on normal has two Ra'zac.

The room's perimeter is lined with chests.  Save them for when you're
desparate for health.

For the most part keep your distance from the pack and use precision shots to
deal with the enemies.  Save fury for when Murtagh gets very low on health,
he's the weakest link in this survival contest.

 Deal with Kull be blinding them and hacking away at them or pulling them to
the ground with pull magic.  Urgal can be knocked down with magic arrows and
dispatch with kill attacks.  Good luck against the Ra'zac, maybe magic arrows
and quick shots from a distance.
