Battle Puzzles are unique to this card battler game, a break from the intense fights and demanding use of more brainpower, which might be frustrating at times.

Prepare to fight

You have 3 moves in this battle-puzzle.

1st Turn

Next you need to target the highest HP demon (30HP) on the right, he will disable your black words next turn, nothing you can do about it except to use all the black words on the first turn, and to take maximum advantage of well-verse. Use Korkusha (Waste 5) on him.

2nd Turn

This is an easy one. You only have white words to use, obviously don’t choose Headless as you want to be damaged to trigger Blood-burn’s waste. Choose the 3 remaining white words, starting from Audelai, Altar, Lazarus and end turn. The right demon will attack first (removing your shield), followed by the left demon.

3rd Turn

Use Skorchen (12 damage) on the right demon, Perepolah (3 damage to all), and Ruda (2 damage) on the left demon. That will kill them off with the waste damage.

Prepare to fight

Vilgoth Cemetery – Prokopy Lair

This is Ded Egor’s loyalty quest of catching a cemetery chort that had mauled a cow in the Vilgort cemetery chapel.

This battle-puzzle introduces another unique twist, fighting against another koldun!

Like you, kolduns can weave zagovors using pages.

You need to make a zagovor out of fewer or same number of pages (excuding firm pages and gestures) to go first.

You have 4 moves in this battle-puzzle.

1st Turn

Notice that he plans to use 2 black words to deal 6 damage each to you, and 1 white word to add 33 armor to himself.

Furthermore, he also has a ward that adds 50 armor to him at the start of each turn.

It’s clear that you won’t be able to beat him using the usual attack damage, so you will need to use Waste. Use Bloodburn in the first turn itself, as any time you use sacrifice, Waste will get stacked onto your enemy.

Besides that, you need to adequately defend yourself, as you will die immediately on any damage done by the enemy on your health.

The obvious choice will be:

Headless (6 armor and damage absorption 1)

Ognevitsa (damage 9 with well-versed)

Bloodburn (Burning blood 1)

Firm Knife (Gesture, Firm 1 and Sacrifice 1)

Use Ded Egor’s Curse on him to further reduce his attack damage, you only have 4 turns, so there is no need to save it for last.

2nd Turn

Use to following:

Headless (6 armor and damage absorption 1)

Breakbone (Sacrifice x3)

Red Sun (double your armor, then Sacrifice)

You will completely negate his damage, while stacking Waste damage on him from the Sacrifice.

3rd Turn

You have 2 damage absorption to negate his 2 attacks. So you don’t have to use Headless this turn.

Use the following:

Dead Man (Increase Waste on the turn start)

Breakbone (Sacrifice x3)

Herod Bones (Double Waste)

He will die immediately on his turn, with the Waste damage at 14 exceeding his 10HP.
