Hope is like a piece of string when youre drowning. It just isnt enough to get you out by itself.Perrin Aybara, The Eye of the World
ok, this is the FINAL GATE! (deep breaths) first: kill any mob you see, but be cautious, no safe rooms to rest in, so you must regen on the run. upon each kill, behead the corpse, and keep it. once you kill enough mobs, you will notice all other mobs in this whole area have disappeared. this means that the dragon wants some of those heads you just got. give him anywhere from 13 to 17 heads to make him fall asleep so you can kill him. but in order for you to get that many mobs to fight, you must enter the curtain in where the dragon stands so the zone will reset. after enough heads are gathered, he will fall asleep, and has VS on him. kill him before he wakes up. you can do whatever you want to him, but dispelling or desecrating him, does wake him up. once he is dead, you will be in an entirely different area. random enemies will spawn, and they must all be killed. look for a forest clearing, in which you can pass onto a bridge with. your exit will then be blocked. all of these rooms are considered tunnel rooms at this point. there you will see a chaodyn. this thing isnt hard to fight, but will resurrect itself with in a random amount of times. when it dies, you will be ported again to another room, with the lord of the lab, Arnax. you cannot fight him for now, so you must dispose of his cronies first. after all is dead, go back to him, and answer his questions with these answers: say tigerman chief say prisoner say wolfen say sartan then he will see you unfit to survive any longer, and wants to kill you. he will erase any thing you seem to make to help you kill him, so you are on your own. some rooms are !magic, but are random at best, so find a mag room to spell up in, and arnax's room isnt !mag either, as he will try to dispel you quite frequently. once he dies, you will port to another area. kill the 2 chaodyns to port to another part of the gate. now you will see TIM again. he doesnt move, but will summon Tinies, or miniture versions of him. all they do is stab, and have the weakest hp ever. so be weary. (Note:tim will be surounded by 4 other enemies, so kill them first so you can regen safely. once tim dies, you will port to the final part of the gate. kill the last bit of mobs here, and ignore arnax till all of the mobs are dead. Final Arnax is a tough mob. he will see your combo and exploit its weakness by casting random spells on himself and you before he fights you. he wont move, so regen is safe otherwise. He desses and does some other stuff, so be weary as this fight will last awhile. once he is dead, he will drop the last soulstone. soulgiving will port you to the Nexus.
