      King Borr

      King Borr's sigil, for the new Skeleton Key boss in Savarstaad Pass, is located in the cave under the waterfall. I was disappointed after using my Wooden Skeleton Key because exiting the battle cave brings you back out to Savarstaad Pass rather than the key lobby. If I have all three types of keys on me, I want to go in all three levels like Krampus' Lobby, but maybe that's just me.

      Wooden Key: Rank 8 Myth Boss/Rank 7 Ice Minion - This first battle I got 30 Rat Spin Spellements and some other low level rewards. Low health, no cheats, pretty straightforward battle. Second attempt, I got 30 Hammer of Thor, and third time in just a reagent and snack. It should be a pretty popular place to farm for those with Wooden Keys, though.

      Stone Key: The boss and his Grendel minion get an annoying set of cheats. The minion shields the boss to intercept 75% of damage, and then the boss revives the minion every single time it gets defeated, back at full health and back at 75% intercept -- even after the boss dies, the minion is replaced. Tower Shields, Athena -- Chip, chip, chip away we go at the boss' health. Conviction and/or Stun Block would have been helpful for the stunning. At least neither of them cast a healing spell. After the battle, about the same gold as the first one, no spellements - just Pink Huckleberries and a Kiwi Fruit.

      Gold Key: I teamed up with a Storm wizard who carried a small deck so he needed to flee and come back. Same annoying cheats, and a late penalty that features a Medusa. After the battle, I got one lonely Hammer of Thor, but he didn't get any spellements at all. At least he dropped a Gold key for me as well.

      King Borr was not extractable using Pig Animus spell - it told me "wrong monster type."

      Re: King Borr

      The only problem I see is the Wooden/Stone Keys and maybe even the Gold Keys, how can players get enough keys to farm the area? Also, these kinds of events really have a sensitive time right when the test realm becomes live but what about several months after the update? I see in Live realm a significantly less amount of people are farming Omen now then when Omen was released (perhaps the Spring Update Key Bosses are different because their drops cannot be outdated the same way Omen's drops have become?)

      I've seen keys hanging on walls of castles while doing Tours for the Scene. They must drop in sufficient quantity for some players who farm them. The Gold level guy dropped a replacement key. Hopefully, enough testing here will determine how generously each of them will supply keys to keep coming back.

      This location will be different for a while, as players farm for the Spellements.

      Hopefully something like a 75% Drop rate would be nice. Definitely farmable with a team if at least one player gets a key each time.

      I agree, my few attempts honestly showed better results in the Wooden Key battle.

      I also had better luck with the Wood Key version, got 30 Rat Spins there.

      I did manage to solo the gold boss and what did I get for all that effort...? A refund.




      Personally, I would like for there to be some way to interact with this boss's cheats. Maybe there is and I just don't know it. Right now the intercept + immortal minion means that this boss's only mechanic is that he has 4x the advertised health, which... isn't interesting

      Considering just how many Spellements we need and the number of Spellemental Spells out there, these drop-rates simply must be increased! This is certainly an improvement from before, but it just isn't feasible to farm that many Spellements with these current drop-rates.

      First battle in Wooden Key room gave most Spellements, 30 Hammer of Thor.



      First battle in Stone Key room gave 4 Ratatoskr's Spin spellements



      Second battle in Wooden Key - bleah




      Second battle in Stone Key room - more bleah, except, is this the first drop source for Fortified Cheese?




      PS - traded all of the Hammer of Thor spellements to my baby Storm - he is Level 15 and now has Hammer of Thor in his Spellbook (in Test Realm) - wow!

      Sorry if this ends up being an off-topic rant, but I do have a bit to say.

      I am really encouraged at the potential of gathering spellements (which is badly needed), but I digress in knowing KI/Gamigo isn't gonna give the proverbial milk for free, since they do provide the cash cow; and if it is a permanent thing it will be a true blessing.

      Maybe KI will get generous with the early Skeleton Key bosses in Wizard City like the one in Crab Alley to the right as you enter it, and revamp the boss and minions to drop spellements? The boss has about maybe 900 health and 3 minions that can be dealt with easily, but getting used to gathering spellements at this time would help people understand the game mechanic.

      BUT I WOULD ADVISE that if any spellement is given, let it be Fairy. It is the only L1, L2 spell that I have yet to see have a spellement for, and at low levels it would be a good start in assisting the player advance early on.

      And in regards of viewing the Test Realm content from others, I for one hated battling minion/boss set ups in Mirage during the Grandfather Spider battle when wave after wave of minions cast intercept and what might have been a 125K hit on the chaotic patriarch might end up being 14K instead; I'm not too thrilled to see, hear about skeleton bosses having more of this, but to each their own.

      I know from playing the Zelda series from Nintendo, that people complain that the games are too easy and they want more of a challenge, instead of appreciating the content, being able to complete the game by yourself, and then being able to give a full commentary of the entire game, not just part; which the W101/P101 community does relatively well without complaints (which is refreshing to me).

      Finally, if I really had any complaint at all about the Spring 2021 Update, it would be that I might have to break down and buy a new computer with the latest graphic enhancements so I can continue on playing the game.
