Walkthrough for the 13th Colossus
The way to the 13th colossus
Thy next foe is... The vast desert lands... A giant trail drifts through the sky... Thou art not alone...
And again your journey leads you to the southwestern end of the
plateau the temple is on. Just like on your way to the 6th colossus you enter the
forest here and ride through it in northwestern direction. There you take the small
path through the valley to enter the huge plain in the south(west) of the land.
You ride over the plain and wide field through the burning sun in southern direction
until you find a circular temple ruin in the middle of the plain. Whatever
rituals were held here they were of no good. And as soon as you step inside the old
ruin all hell breaks loose as the 13th colossus enters the arena from below.
If you want you can save before fighting this colossus at the saveshrine in the
north of the desert plain.
In case the description above didn't work for you take a look at the colossus map
This colossus is a nice and fair guy as he doesn't attack you once he hatched
out of the sand but he rather prefers to fly along through the hot desert sun
over your head. So you don't have to worry about the colossus attacking you
at this time.
But there is one inevitable question, that is, how do you win a fight against
a huge colossus that is flying some hundred meters above the ground? And how do
you get onto the colossus in the first place?
Your first task at this bossfight is to destroy all the floating bubble tanks of your
new enemy. The thirteenth colossus features three of these babies. They are spread all over
his underside and look like colossal ugly blisters or white plastic bags filled
with old air and tied there with ropes.
You have to attack these three floating tanks with an arrow each. Once they are
all broken the music will change and the 13th colossus will lose an enormous amount of
his height so that his crusty wings will touch the ground and a lot of dust
flies through the air.
And exactly these wings are the secret. You can climb up on his wings. To do
so ride along with the colossus and keep some distance or otherwise the dust
might get in your eyes and you can't see anything anymore. As soon as you are
at the front fins get close to one of these fins and then jump over from Agro
to this fin and grab onto it. This might take some tries, just try often enough.
Now you can climb up the steps on the wing, if you have to you can correct
your position by climbing along the step towards the head of the colossus because
otherwise the strong wind can blow you off from the wing. Climb up so that you
are hanging from the last step, not the edge of the fin. Because now the colossus
will rise again and just starts to flap his wings. It is is a lot easier
to hold on to the thirteenth colossus rising when you are still on top of the fin
and not hanging down from the outer end of the fin.
As soon as the 13th colossus stopped flapping with his wings you can stand up safely
and jump onto his body. Here the wind blowing in your face is not that mean anymore
and not as mean as on the 5th colossus, so you can just walk towards the tail end of the colossus. Here you will come across
three gill like structures which cover the weak points of the 13th colossus. The first
weak point is very close to the front wings you just climbed up. So get yourself
behind this thing and strike your sword into the glowing ornament. After draining
about one third of his health the colossus will perform a really nice barrel roll
and shut down the gill. Now it's getting interesting. The colossus dives down into
the sand in the desert. So you better jump off shortly before hitting the ground.
Good timing is very helpful here.
After some time hanging around under ground the thirteenth colossus reappears on the scene
and is repimped and pumped again. So you have to shoot his swollen blisters
again and then of course climb on him again to take out another weak point until
he dives down again. After this you pop open his blisters one more time and also climb on
him and finish him off. So you have to climb on him three times but this should be
no problem for you but rather a fun activity. While the colossus is under the sand you can follow
it with the reflected sunrays from your sword or log onto the colossus with
and thus estimate where it will resurface but it works
better with the sword and is also a lot more stylish.
