Behavior

Phase 1: Crystals

After killing the 2 Royal L Guardians, The Cursed Crown will say “…” ,move towards the end of the room and transform into the Boss. He will taunt:
“You have made a grave mistake coming here. I will destroy you, and reclaim my place in the Realm.”
“I will make quick work of you. Be gone.”

He will then spawn 4 Crystals, each one having different behaviour.
- The Red Crystal periodically spawns Fire Portals.
- The Blue Crystal periodically spawns Ice Portals.
- The Green Crystal periodically heals itself and the other crystals for 1000 HP.
- The Yellow Crystal fires shotguns of high-damage paralysing shots.

Phase 2: Royal Guardians

Taunt: “You would challenge me? I am the King of this place.”
- When you destroy the 4 Crystals, the Forgotten King will fire a large wave of hard-to-dodge shots and flood the bridge leading to his room with hot lava.
- Then he will move to the middle of the room and spawn a group of Royal J Guardians (See behaviour for Royal Guardian J) while performing one of the below taunts:
“You fools. Guards, surround me.”
“Guards, come to my aid!”
“Do not think, even for a moment, that you will best me.”

- Once the Guardians have been destroyed, the Forgotten King will unleash an omnidirectional bombardment of projectiles. This is the only time he is vulnerable during this phase, and if not enough damage is dealt he will respawn the Guardians and the phase repeats.
- When he unleashes his attack, he will say one of the following:
“Be consumed, you wretched whelps.”
“Laughable attempt.”
“Do not mistake your success so far as progress.”

If sufficient damage has been dealt to him, he will move onto phase 3.

Phase 3: Tentacles of Wrath

Taunt: “So. You are still here. Adorable. Perhaps a nice dip in the LAVA!? “
- After you defeat the Guardians, and if enough damage is dealt, The Forgotten King turns a portion of his arena into hot lava.
- The Forgotten King will then yell “TENTACLES OF WRATH!” and fire 6 long beams of fireballs along with a small aimed burst of fire and ice bullets, dealing high damage. He will then begin to slowly rotate the beams clockwise, forcing you to move with it or take massive damage. The Boss will also start to spawn Helpless Souls from the lava around the arena (See behaviour for Helpless Souls)
- After a while, the boss will stop firing for a moment before restarting the phase. He is only vulnerable for a short moment when he begins attacking. He will taunt “Fools…” when he becomes invulnerable again.

Phase 4:

Taunt: “Drown, and be swallowed by those who have failed before.”
The Forgotten King moves to the top of the room. He then fires a large wave of projectiles consisting of waves of armor-piercing bullets sweeping in front of him and bursts of fire and ice attacks aimed at the nearest player. He will occasionally pause and become vulnerable before firing again.

Phase 5: The final one

Taunt: “YOU TEST THE PATIENCE OF A GOD!”
The King will shout “DIE! DIE!! DIE!!!” and fire a massive bombardment of shots in a similar pattern from Phase 4 combined with the Phase 3 tentacles. After that the Boss will say “Ha….haa…..” and become vulnerable. If the group deals enough damage, the Forgotten King will die. Otherwise he will start flashing and shooting again.

Death

Taunt: “Impossible…IMPOSSIBLE!!!”
- The Forgotten King will flash red and explode into a nova of 200 damage white bullets.
- After this, a Test Chest will be spawned over the red carpet tile, dropping all the sought after loot.

Tips and Strategies

  • When destroying the Crystals once they spawn, destroying the yellow crystal should take priority, as it will paralyze players - extremely dangerous during this fight.
  • It is very important to not buff the boss after the Crystal phase, else the boss will become much harder and deadlier. However, if you deal a huge amount of damage, you can kill the boss instantly, skipping the other phases and immediately being able to shoot the loot chest.
  • After the Tentacles phase DO NOT SLOW the Boss or he will get “stuck” while going backwards and his shots will be almost impossible to dodge.
  • When the Forgotten Kings shouts: “YOU TEST THE PATIENCE OF A GOD” get as far away from the boss as you can, since you wont see his shots, which are kind of hard to dodge.
  • The Helpless Souls coming from the sides will not be a heavy threat, and should generally be ignored, granted you dodge well or have a Priest with a Purification Tome.
  • During several phases of this fight, when the Forgotten King fires out large streams of various shots, you can stand at the bottom side of the room and you will not see the attacks. You should begin to run at the boss when the Helpless Soul at the bottom of the room is spawned.
  • Right before any phase where the Forgotten King shoots tentacles, if you have a huntress with a Coral Trap, if the Coral Trap is placed on the Forgotten King and touches no other enemy, he will not shoot tentacles.
