||Warlic Lake is a wide open area and is easy enough to
get around to explore with the Aqua Boots. You will want
to find 3 Life Potions and 4 Bibles (50,000 gold max)
scattered about the lake area. Consult the maps section
for info on location and pricing. If you need to gather
any additional gold, stab at the blue rats from the water.
The screen shown at the left is where you will obtain the
first Emerald Ring (Kill a couple of the Red Knights to
reveal hole). This ring is to be given to another Wise
Woman for quest information. This area is located on the
|Walk to the farthest Southwestern area to find a hole
defended by dark pigmy skeletons. Crawl in the hole and
you will give the Emerald Ring to another Wise Woman. She
will inform you that Golvellius used to be a GOOD king.
||Walk North from the previous screen to the next island
on the Western side of the lake. Go to the Southeastern
part of this island (pictured on the left) and crush the
stone you see Kelesis crushing in the picture. A hole will
appear revealing the entrance to Warlic's lair.
|Warlic's lair contains more enemies and more twists and
turns than the previous bottom-up scrollers. When you come
to the 4 way path as you see pictured on the right, take
the leftmost path. At the end of the path, a giant bat
will appear. Keep stabbing at it quickly, but also make
sure you are following the right path at the fork because
the left path is a dead end.
||Ah, its Warlic... or... Warlics? Warlic immediately
splits into two demons and both begin taking turns
charging at Kelesis. This is a difficult battle because
one hit takes an entire Life Container away and you must
be aware of both Warlics at all times. Stay near the edge
as much as possible (the bottom-left mostly) to avoid
multiple hits. Always attack the second Warlic that
charges, otherwise you will be hit by the second one while
attacking the first. Attack Warlic when it stops its
charge, before it pulls away. The battle eases a bit once
one of them is defeated.
|Upon Warlic's defeat, walk down to where you gave the
Wise Woman the ring and walk one screen right and one
screen up. You will find yourself in the area pictured on
the right. Crawl in the hole and buy the 5th crystal for
||Here is a picture of what your status screen should look
like by now, if you have found all the equipment so far,
without skipping forward.
|Crawky Forest entrance is back where you found the Aqua
Boots. The mountains will part upon Warlic's demise and
you can move onward with your adventure.
