At the start there are a few kind of so so bad guys. After the first few battles you come to a mid point where you have to mix a recipe and if you don't get it right then the guys attack you and it's a long battle.
As you move through this very long tower the bad guys get worse and do stuff like attack you if you take their shield off using a steal shield. (have to use a shield break or Quake)
Finally after about 5 hours you get to this guy. The fire/ice dragon who, for a fire dragon is really really really resistant to ice. I pretty much had to let the others do the fighting because hitting him with full blades did almost nothing.
When it was all done I think my backpack must have gotten full because I just got a couple crackers and a housing item. The rest of the crew got blue dragon pets which seems like a good reason to spend hours and hours fighting. But it was a good bonding experience with many levels to keep you struggling to set up for a big hit and stay alive. I highly recommend having healing pets and or keep a good life wiz with you.
