Spoiler Start (Highlight to read the following)

Kill the normal mobs that spawns and after you defeat a wave of them, the Manticore will fly in and engage you. During this time, do not attempt to attack it. Instead, simply stand on that glowing tiled area and wait for the Manticore's barbed tail to strike down at you. You can dodge out of the way and if you time your dodge before the striking animation as well.

Rinse and repeat this 3 times and you will eventually start the focus kill button press chain.

Hero of Sparta 2 Help Desk

So now that this game has come and has exceeded most of our expectations, I found it necessary to create a help thread to aid those who are having trouble in the game.

For me, I am stuck at the flying demon boss. I get to the third wave of bad guys (after the demon strikes the ground area 2x) and I cannot seem to beat that wave. What do I have to do to regain health? I focus attack every enemy I can but no green orbs. My sword is at damage level 2 and I use that shield special atack as much as I can. Anyone who has gotten passed this level could you shed some light on what I am doing wrong or what I should be doing differently?!


Thanks and feel free to post your comments questions and concerns for this game here.

You are not pretty enough to be that stupid.

Yup, I'm stuck at the same part, in the arena/stadium area right? With that glowing/glistening square? Any help is appreciated.

2nd question.

with the flying demon boss get him to strike the glowing square by maneuvering in the vicinity of the glowing square until the square is broken completely. Continue to encourage the demon to strike the same spot by moving over that same small area. Eventually his tail will become momentarily stuck in the ground. Move close to his tail when it is stuck in the ground and an action icon will appear. Press it quickly and then press the button sequence which follows. Obviously dont let his tail strike you directly, just entice it to hit that small area repeatedly. Thats how its done.

I know this, but how do we stay alive the whole time? Frankly the health you have is not high enough to last the entire battle, how do we obtain health orbs to keep our health up while fighting? I am basically using 3/4 of a health bar because thats what the game gives me when the battle restarts. Its a pain in the friggin ass.

2nd q.

that fight does take up a lot of health. It took me more than a few passes to make it. Dont think theres extra health orbs. Only archers and statues seem to put them out consistently. I jumped around a lot and made good use of that heavy downwards slide press sword blow. You got to try to make it on to his tail the first time he gets it stuck. And i just piled all my orbs into sword and shield damage, magic can come later i guess. Thats how i got past it. Good luck mate.

do you mean when he first strikes the metal plate thingy? Thats when i hop on his tail? because I do not see an action button to allow that to take place. I could easily beat this guy if I didn't start with 3/4 of my health....its just really annoying to have to do this over and over again.
