The Eye of the Storm

The Eye of the Storm is the final boss fight, unless the player has met the conditions to reach the real final fight. While the encountered boss is initially the Frost Guardian (Frost Wizard), the first phase will change based on the deck that previously won against it.

Default Phase 1

When the player first enters the Eye of the Storm, they are met with the Frost Guardian (Frost Wizard). The Frost Wizard always appears in the front of the enemy field and is accompanied by 3 other enemies, and 2 additional waves of enemies wait in the wings. The Frost Wizard has the unique ability to grant link=attack} attack to itself and all its current allies whenever it loses link=health} health. This is not a continuous ability; instead, it activates every time Frost Wizard loses any amount of health and only grants attack to enemies that are currently in the battle. Enemies that appear later in the battle after Frost Wizard has already lost some health will not gain attack. Notably, Frost Wizard's ability will not activate when the final blow is dealt, as it will transform before the ability can activate.

Because Frost Wizard severely punishes the player for hurting it, focus as much as possible on bringing down its allies first. Frost Wizard has a lot of health, so it has the potential to dramatically inflate its allies' attack. Once all its allies are defeated, make one final push to defeat it as quickly as possible, as it will be capable of destroying anything in a single hit once its health is low. Alternatively, with a consistent source of link=Ink} Ink early in the battle, Frost Wizard is almost completely trivialized, as it will deal no damage and grant no attack.

Using the Shade Wisp on Frost Wizard has an extremely powerful (and likely unintentional) effect. Since the summoned copy's health is set to 1, it counts this as a loss of health. As a result, it grants attack to itself and all the player's cards, equal to Frost Wizard's health minus 1. This is not completely consistent, but is worth trying when using a Shademancer Leader, as it completely trivializes the fight.

Phase 2

Once Frost Wizard is defeated, it instantly transforms into the Frost Guardian and summons a horde of enemies to completely fill the enemy field. These backup enemies are chosen randomly from a set of 5, and only 1 of any of the enemies can appear (except for Grink, which can appear twice). No more waves of enemies will appear, but any enemies that would have spawned in phase 1 but could not (either due to the enemy field being full or the phase being finished too quickly) will still appear in new waves.

The timing of transitioning from phase 1 to phase 2 is extremely important and will depend on the deck. If phase 1 is finished quickly, all of Frost Wizard's allies will have incredibly high attack, and all the enemy waves that did not appear will show up in phase 2 instead. However, if phase 1 is finished slowly, 5 new enemies will appear all at once and may overwhelm the team with their numbers.

The player must take advantage of Frost Guardian's ability if they hope to defeat it, but this increases Frost Guardian's attack. It also has a very fast link=Counter} Counter and will make full use of all the attack it gains. Frost Guardian is most dangerous in the middle of the fight, where its attack is likely already high but it still has high health and allies to back it up. Once it reaches this stage, end the fight as quickly as possible by defeating its allies to drain its health, and use Clunkers and expendable Companions to take its hits.

Although link=Ink} Ink is extremely powerful against Frost Wizard, it can be a run-ender if inflicted on Frost Guardian at the wrong time. Negating Frost Guardian's ability prevents it from losing any health when its allies are killed, but it will still keep any attack it gained from before it was Inked. For instance, after killing 3 of its allies, Frost Guardian will have 8 attack and over 100 health; Inking it at this point is a death sentence.

Summoned Enemies

Every enemy here can spawn once, except for Grink that can spawn twice.

Alternate Phase 1

If the player defeats Frost Guardian without meeting the conditions to face the real final battle, or loses the battle while meeting these conditions, the Emperor Shade will possess the player's Leader and Companions and the run will end in a "victory?" After this point, the possessed Leader and Companions will take the place of Frost Wizard in the first phase of the battle, forcing the player's next deck to fight against the one that previously made it to the Eye. Since Items are not played to the field, other enemies with similar abilities will appear in these Items' places, such as Tentickle appearing if the previous deck had an link=Ink} Ink-related Item. Any Companions that were in reserve will not be possessed, only those that were a part of the winning deck.

Any Charms that were attached to the previous Leader or Companions will remain attached to them while possessed, except for the link=Pinch Charm} Pinch Charm, link=Bling Charm} Bling Charm, link=Hog Charm} Hog Charm, link=Spark Charm} Spark Charm, and link=Noomlin Charm} Noomlin Charm. Any Items that had Charms attached will not have these Charms attached to the substitute enemies. Additionally, all possessed Companions gain:

  • 10-12 link=health} health, rounded up to the nearest even number,
  • +2 to their effects or link=attack} attack, reduced by 1 for each Charm attached,
  • Halved link=Teeth} Teeth.

On top of these bonuses, possessed Leaders also gain:

As a result of all this, the stronger the player's final deck is, the tougher the Eye of the Storm becomes. The player must be familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each Tribe and their mechanics and cards to form a winning strategy. However, if the player can reach the Eye of the Storm while meeting the conditions for the true final fight, they can lose the battle and still have their new deck replace the final boss. This allows the player to face a more challenging leadup in exchange for replacing the Eye of the Storm with a new fight, even if they lose.
