On the path of the Jade Scepter – Koto at the Dojo….

On my epic path to locate the Jade Scepter and defeat the Plague Oni, I find myself in the Dojo of a villain known only as ‘Koto’ – villains with only one name are always more frightening, like ‘Voldemort’ or ‘Madonna’…
This fight was EPIC, and for all the wrong reasons. My carefully laid plans and strategies, honed to a razor fine point in 39 levels of play (plus listening to the Pyromancer study hall episode of Ravenwood Radio about fifty times), all fell apart in a smoking mess as a variety of fizzles, ill-times shields, and other misfortunes had the fight dragging on for over ten minutes! It was like the terror of the Ice Spiders all over again – gah!! Finally, in the end, I was victorious and won the shaft of the fabled Jade Scepter.
This fight does outline something that I think is important, especially as my wizard gets into the higher levels of the game, and that is the ability to adapt your strategy on the fly as things don’t go your way. There were a couple times in this duel where, had I tried to just stick with my tried and true strategy (blow stuff up, ala-meteor strike), I’m sure I would have failed, but I rolled with the punches, as it were, and made it through to victory!!
Now I need a nap…
