Walkthrough[edit]

Kill the spider Hallucination bothering Marjory and Kasmeer. Listen to the dialogue and then proceed around the perimeter of the Heart of the Tower.

The first room contains Twisted Watchwork creatures (kill the nightmare stalk first). The second room has Aetherblade Hallucinations. Defeat the Molten Alliance Hallucination creatures in the third room to make the portals vulnerable; repeat until all three portals are down (defeat the protector first outside of their flame circle to remove the shielding).

Listen to the dialogue in the central chamber. Kill the three veterans (with finishers for the two Toxic Krait). A cinematic narrated by Scarlet Briar then plays recapping the events of the previous episodes. A second cinematic then plays where Scarlet leaves and yet another champion Toxic Krait appears.

Champion Ensolyss initially spawns with two other weak enemies. The champion has two brief invulnerability phases at 75%, repositions and then summons two more assistants. Below 50% a projectile destroying bubble can appear around Ensolyss. There is a final invulnerability phase at 10% where a further three hallucinations spawn.

After defeating the champion, interact with the antitoxin injector, and then speak to your allies to complete the story.

My story[edit]

File:The Nightmare Incarnate.jpg

Once we reached the apex of the tower, Marjory, Kasmeer, and I entered the core—it was filled with illusionary tricks. Nestled at the heart was a massive, pulsing organism. As we approached the mass, Scarlet finally graced us with her presence. She gallantly admitted to her hand in the chaos to date: her alliances, the devastation at Dragon Bash. It was all Scarlet, and the Nightmare Tower is simply the latest of her cruel games.

We were ambushed by a krait-turned-beast, a monstrous creation of the Toxic Alliance. With the beast defeated, we were finally able to inject the antitoxin—but the heart barely squirmed. It looks like it will take more than one dose to bring down the tower after all.
