Picking the Locks – Ra

Picking the Locks – Ra

Shall we take a look at yet another skeleton key boss? I picked one of the easy ones this time round. Therefore, let’s take a trip down memory lane. Let’s go all the way to Krokotopia’s very own Library and find out what lies behind this particular lock.

Ra

So it seems like everyone’s favorite and quickest spell has come to life (insert sarcasm here). Ra is one of the latest wooden skeleton key bosses to be discovered inside the Spiral. He is here to offer level 20 wizards a challenge and some rewards they might like.

First and foremost, to battle Ra you need to go to Krokotopia’s Library in the Oasis. Next, go to the side door to access the Hall of Doors. After that, enter the sigil to access Ra’s Landing, and open the lock with a wooden key to enter Ra’s Reading Room. Easy, right? It is!

Furthermore, wooden skeleton keys can be easily obtained from bosses such as:

  • Jade Oni, Oakheart and Youkai
  • Barkingham Palace bosses
  • Major bosses in Kembaalung
  • Others

 

What to expect

Ra

Ra – Rank 4 Balance Boss – 3,750 hp

Sia the Perceiver 1,150 hp

Hu the Commander 1,000 hp

Heka the Haruspect 1,100 hp

While the battle is fairly easy, be prepared for Ra to cast a couple elemental and spirit shields. Also, bring your best accuracy gear as he does tend to cast a few smoke screens every now and then. With the help of high level wizards this battle can be extremely short. However, if you like the challenge and are using level appropriate wizards, bring heals! These creatures do tend to hit quite often due to power play (+35% pip chance to all) that Ra cheat casts.

 

Cheats

Ra

Firstly, at the start of the battle, Ra will interrupt and cheat cast Power Play (+35% pip chance to all).

 

Ra

If you try to change Power Play with another global spell, Ra will interrupt and cheat cast Power Play once more. This can be countered with a balance dispel.

 

Ra

Ra has a tendency to use spells that manipulate accuracy such as Guidance and Smoke Screen. As such, these are cast frequently and randomly throughout the entire battle. However, this can sometimes work in your favor as he can:

  • Cast Smoke Screen on either his enemies (you) or his allies.
  • Cast Guidance on either his enemies or his allies.

 

Ra

At the end of round 4, Ra will cast an Amplify on everyone in the battle (you too). Furthermore, at the end of round 8, he will cheat cast Fortify on everyone in the battle. This will keep on going on, shifting between auras every 4 rounds.

 

Drops

I highly recommend farming Ra if you are new to the game as his drops will give you a kick start. The gear has some interesting stats, but maybe not something you require as there are better variations out there like Kembaalung’s gear and Zeus’ Mount Olympus gear. In addition, something else that caught my eye are the mounts. So many mounts! Presently, the drop rate is moderate, which can be good for you out there looking to obtain your first mount to speed up your questing.
