The Prophet is a boss which appears in the Ruins, and, like other bosses, has three variations (Sonorous, Fulminating and Gibbering).

Ancestor's Memoirs: The Prophet[edit | edit source]

Excavations beneath the manor were well underway, when a particularly ragged indigent arrived in the hamlet. This filthy, toothless miscreant boasted an uncanny knowledge of my ambitions and prognosticated publicly that, left unchecked, I would soon unleash doom upon the world.

This raving creature had to be silenced. But doing so proved maddeningly impossible. How had he survived the stockades, the icy waters, and the knives I delivered so enthusiastically into his back? How had he returned, time and time again, to rouse the townsfolk with his wild speculations and prophecies?

Finally, resigned to his uncommon corporeal resilience I lured him to the dig. There, I showed him the THING and detailed the full extent of my plans. Triumphantly I watched as he tore his eyes from their sockets and ran shrieking into the shadows, wailing maniacally that the end was upon us all.

~ The Ancestor

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Prophet spawns on rank 4, with wooden pews of crescent hitpoints on rank 1, 2 and 3. Breaking these pews will reward valuable Consecrated Pews at the end of the battle.

The Prophet will always open the round with "Calamitous Prognostication" and end it with "Rubble of Ruin". In between them, he will cast one of either "Eye on You" or "Fulminate".

If one of your heroes is heavily stressed (>50 Stress), the chance of him using "Eye on You" will be doubled/tripled for Veteran and Champion level dungeons respectively. Conversely, if all of your heroes are virtuous, he will only utilize "Fulminate".

Trophy[edit | edit source]

After completing the Prophet's champion quest, he will drop one of his eyes as a Trophy.

* Rank Marked marks the target's rank when the ability lands, not the targeted Hero.

** Rubble of Ruin can only be cast on heroes occupying Marked Rank. Heroes in Ranks that are not marked will not be affected, even if it says 100% +1 extra target. In fact, the extra target is the other hero occupying the marked rank.

*** The blight inflicted by Fulminate lasts 2 rounds instead of 3.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Prophet starts in slot 4 behind 3 planks of wood that act as walls to protect him. If you break the planks, he will start moving forward into empty slots. Each plank is tougher than the last, so you may want to avoid the third plank, which has the highest health. The planks are worth money if destroyed. Each plank is worth the same amount of money though, so don't expect a big bonus for the third plank.

The Prophet himself is undead, making the Crusader effective once within striking range. Despite being undead, the Prophet is equally vulnerable to blight and bleed. But the undead of the area are resistant to bleed, so blight would be recommended if you want to DOT. He only has 1 action per round though, limiting the effectiveness of any dots. This does make debuffs more effective, however.

You can either break the planks to get him within range of your heroes, or ignore them with a team that can target the backline. If you want to focus him, consider bringing a mark and/or dodge debuff to maximize your damage. The Arbalest in particular gets a large boost to mark. The Grave Robber gets a boost to mark and blight. For close range classes, 1-2 Crusaders/Lepers can chop through planks quickly, then start swinging at the Prophet.

Unless you can kill him incredibly fast, you must also deal with rubble falling onto your party. Healing through them is impossible. Consider bringing the Man At Arms and using guard to redirect rubble onto him. If he stacks his prot, he can negate most of the damage of 1 rubble per round. He can also buff the party's dodge. The Shieldbreaker can block rubble, but only if they land on her. You could make use of her numerous move skills to keep her positioned under rubble. The Leper, able to buff his own prot and heal, is not a bad choice.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you have subtitles on, during the intro before the level, the narrator will describe the prophet as a "miscreant", despite the text on screen reading "degenerate". In fact the subtitles are different in other parts of this intro too.
