8. The Crucible
Stock up on food, potions, and weapons before you dare entering the Crucible. There are eight rounds of the Crucible, most rounds have three waves of enemies and start immediately after the one before is dead. If you complete eight perfect rounds you will get a bonus legendary weapon, don't worry if this doesn't happen on your first play through, you can return to the Crucible. I've find that the Rise Dead spell is a great way to distract the enemies.
|1||Beetles||These are easy to kill with spells and a sword.|
|2||Hobbes||Use area spells and your sword, like Beetles.|
|3||Hobbes||Use the exploding barrels and push them into the middle. Watch for some of them to be hiding.|
|4||Hollowmen||Hollowmen take more damage from Inferno spells.|
|5||Bandits||Only charge at them if you are drastically weak with your ranged weapons, otherwise shoot and use the pressure plate and barrels.|
|6||Bandits||Waves here will appear before the first is dead, and try to push them into the pit, didn't find much use for the pressure plate that shoots fire. If you step on the plate twice they will be moved and it makes it much easier.|
|7||Balvarine||There isn't that many of them, its just like going through the Howling Halls without Hammer.|
|8||Rock Troll||Just like any other troll fight, only exception are some obstacles and a few summoned Hobbes.|
After doing this the quest, The Spire will be unlocked, do not start this without doing the "Westcliff Development" sidequest and having children. Another good idea is to invest in shops and houses before starting this.
