Walkthrough for the 9th Colossus
The way to the 9th colossus
Thy next foe is... The land where trees nary grow... It sleeps in a dry lake bed... A rude awakening.
Your way to the 9th colossus brings you to the northwestern end of the temple again, but
this time around you don't cross the long natural bridge to the north but you take the way over the bridge to the west that looks more
like a natural dam.
After some more riding to the west you will see dark clouds on the horizon. This
is your destination this time. So ride on until it gets darker (this is because of the
dark clouds, what else) and search for the red brown path over the canyon. This small bridge is
in the south of the canyon. Now ride along the geysers with your victory already in your heart and
ride towards a big dark cave in which the 9th colossus is already waiting for you.
In case the description above didn't work for you take a look at the colossus map
This turtle like colossus is a really mean bean that uses 2 mean and one halfway
mean attacks to get you down and out of his way.
The first attack is a distance attack but can also happen while you are running under him from
Then the ninth colossus shoots at you with four to five glowing energy balls that will devastatingly hit
the ground near to you. In case they hit you it will be even worse for you, as they
don't exactly give energy to you but drain it from you. Badly.
His second mean attack is that he starts to rise and stands on his back legs, then
gets some momentum to crash his really heavy front legs down and of course
the 9th colossus tries to hit or squish you while doing so. If he misses you with his legs but the impact of his legs is still close
to where you stand this can throw you around for good and also take away from your health. As the ninth colossus is a cool calculating
tortoise he only performs this attack if he sees
a chance of hitting you, this means he only performs the rise and smash attack if you are near to his
front legs. But being near to his legs is a relative thing to say, and he decides what he does,
so be careful of he rises and be prepared. Dodge the attack by avoiding his legs
of course and then jumping shortly before his legs smash to the ground, this allows you
to dodge the shock wave. A good advice is to jump away from him and not only straight
into the air.
The ninth colossus' last and not that mean attack is an attack he doesn't use that often, but when
he uses it you have been hanging around his old and muddy tail for too long.
For this attack he uses his tail to wipe everything around it and so everything
behind his back. Of course he tries to hit you while attacking, otherwise it would
be no attack, so watch out, don't stay around his tail for too long.
So now you might be interested in how to defeat this huge and mean and crusty
9th colossus, so I will enlighten you with the next paragraphs, but don't forget
about the words before, as he will attack you! You have to use all weapons and also
the surrounding area to beat this beast.
At first you have to lure him over one of the geysers. This can officially take
some time. Position Wander so that a geyser is between you and the colossus.
If he shoots the energy balls of his first attack run away to the side and jump shortly
before they impact on the ground. This way you can dodge them quite good. Now make
sure the geyser is between you and the colossus again so that he will slowly but surely
walk over the geyser.
Once the ninth colossus moved its colossal body over one of the geysers and the time is
right and the geyser erupts its wet hot fluids over the colossus this guy is thrown
out of his balance and two of his knees collapse and he rolls halfway over.
So this is your time, run to his collapsed legs and shoot an arrow into the glowing sole
of his feet that you now can hit. Now the colossus will be completely blown away and lands
on his side (after rolling over completely) and offers you the opportunity to climb up on his
So don't miss this great chance and walk all around the turned over colossus to reach for his
belly. Why does he roll away so far anyways, stupid jurassic beast. So once you walked
all the way around him climb all over his furry belly and even further up to the shell
on his back. Here you look for a safe place to hold onto and then wait a bit until
the colossus gets up again and stands up again. He even won't give up the fight.
Now you run along the middle of the archaic shield on his back until you find yourself
on the small head of the colossus. Watch out that you don't get dropped off.
Of course the gigantic beast shakes and waves and tries to keep you from reaching his old head where
he can be wounded by you. Once you finally made it to the deformed head you can also find the
sought after glowing ornament here where you want to blow in your sword until the
turtle like colossus goes down and doesn't stand up any more. And this is how you defeat the 9th colossus.
