I have killed everything I can; only ghosts and Mamushi are left alive. Nothing is respawning so I am stuck at level 4. :\ Mamushi is impossible.

Anyone beat him yet?

Yep, 2 times actually (first time I got stuck on the floor cause of a bug after I killed him, had to reload and beat him again -_-). it's a long fight, not that hard when you know the trick but still it's a real boss fight.

There are 2 things you need to pay attention when fighting him :

1. never fight him when your on the edge of the floor, if he pushes you (and usually does), you get thrown off and instantly die, so you need to stay in the center of the room.

2. It's a kenshi naga, and like all kenshis, he can retaliate when he blocks (and evade I think), and on top of that he does splash damage, so the thing you really don't want to do is attack with everyone in the same turn, you get wiped (especially if you have a char that does multiple strikes, like a double dagger ranger, since each block triggers the retaliation). You need to strike with only one or 2 people at the same time (and not adjacent people in the party, cause of the splash) and make the others defend and heal (or cast spells if you have a mage).

Also don't be shy with potions, you will get tons of them in the next ****eon anyway.

You beat him twice on warrior? Where'd you get the potions? The shops aren't restocking.

I know all the mechanics of the fight too, though I appreciate your tips.

I have two mages and have invested everything into their mana pool, and they go dry halfway through the fight. :\ I have no potions and can't find or buy any.

I'm stuck too. And no potions either. Just keep in mind, "Beta", that's what we are here for at this point. ;)

Do the tiles in the floor help at all with this fight? They seem to click when you walk on them but that's it... I still can't figure out how to beat Mamushi... Got him to like 50% health so far. Is there a fixed strategy to beat him?

I've died many times to Mamushi still. I can't beat him without grinding more levels and there's no more monsters to kill but ghosts, and they wreck me. :(

Same. Can't beat him. Can't buy more supplies. Can't farm to get a higher level. And ghosts destroy me. My entire team is paralyzed by turn 3 of battles, even with water spells.

I'm almost positive I could beat him if I could buy potions; especially mana, But can't.

I took the advice of the guy above and burned through 15 health potions and 5 mana potions and was finally able to kill the damn thing. The tiles on the floor are used to light up the tower after killing Mamushi.

After that you get one more big quest in town, you need to visit the Governor. You are now able to enter his castle but you'll find it overrun with bandits. This is the longest dungeon yet, 3 levels choke full of bandits (all sorts, even mages) but nothing you can't handle. There is a disappointing bandit boss at the end which you can kill with arrows from outside the door without even entering the room.

The game ends there with a message thanking you for participation in the early access and what a sucker you were for dishing out 30 euros! (J/K) :D

Thanks sajahubi for advices, finally I was able to kill him. Probably just because I had a team with 4 orcs and 18 health potions :) For everyone .. definitely try to save potions for this and don't waste them on other places.

Dont use water spells at mamushi! He has 30 resistance to water. I beat him several times. The Char with the highest perception value does melee dmg. If he missed (mamushi has an evading value of 75!), my tank use challenge (which doesnt work 100% correctly i think, sometimes it seems the boss resist or just ignore this). The mage only does magic dmg (firebolt in my case) and my archer is waiting for usin regen cast or he shoot if i get some distance. This combined with 10 healing and 10mana potions would be enough to win the fight.

I finally beat him. Had to try so many times. I guess that is good for a boss; better for an M&M game. Still, we NEED potions. If I had not saved 9 healing potions, I would have been totally stuck at that juncture in the game.

Another thing, when I finally won, 2 of my guys were unconscious. My light mage and earth ranger, who kept the group alive and healed 90% of the battle. Because there were unconscious on the last turn of battle, the got ZERO xp. So they did not level up either. That really ucksays. They were just as important in battle as my other 2, and they get zilch. :/

I understand you but this is quite normal and not a bug i think. When i played M&M 6-8 it was the same. Uncon chars didnt get any xp from fights but the whole xp pool from a fight was divided through all alive members. i.e. the Mamushi kill gives 400xp. if all members of your party are alive, everyone will get 100xp for the kill. If only 2 member are alive they will get 200xp each and the unconn dont get anything. I think this is a good solution.

Beat him on level 3, second try, first try I got knocked off ;)
Had Defender, mage defender, warrior. Does that count as a warrior party? :p Used 5-8 healthpots and 1 mana potion.
Mage hadn't learned any new spells bar the starting ones. I used the holy starting spell and the armor breaker.
If knockback, 1 step towards the middle. just hit do your thing, if you miss or anything, I used one of my defenders to taunt.
Mage died at the end, to lazy to took health pots for him, he didn't do **** anyway :p.
I found it quite easy as a warrior party, now as a mage party, I feel for you.

He seems to be vulnerable to air magic so air spells do a fair chunk of damage on him, so mages aren't entirely useless in this fight as long as you only have one mage! :D

But I have to say - in case every single character stays alive - that 100xp per character is WAY too low for such a hard boss. Was it really that few xp? It needs to feel satisfying finally beating him. Just two or three items and so few XP is just not enough, I think. Each character should gain at least 500xp for this fight...

yah the xp rewards arent balanced yet. hopefully later the developers will adjust the xp rewards so they actually match the battles. i mean they could borrow from AD&D.... HINT HINT!!

OK Big Question? How do you prevent yourself from being Pushed Off top of Lighthouse?
everytime he closes in next to my Party, the game removes all movement options from me...

can't move left or right, ahead is blocked by Boss & behind is empty space, just waiting for my party to fill...

considering this is the 1st Real Big Boss it freaking well sucks

not really anticipating a response, as the Forum appears dead, as this game seems to be wholly unsupported now
