In Ravenwood you'll bump into Aegon Statz who is in desperate need of your help with his research on micro magic particles. Give him a hand in his scientific, and really quite dangerous, investigation of the so-called Pekrons and secure yourself some valuable rewards for your trouble. Are you perhaps a very accomplished wizard looking for a real challenge? Then the three new Skeleton Key Creatures are just the thing for you! They're in their dungeons waiting for you as we speak, and they look none too friendly.
The Darkmoor Manor was owned by the Pawtrey family and was their pride and joy for generations. But Lord Purnitius Pawtrey was negligent and squandered the entire family fortune. The property had to be auctioned off so that his debts could be paid. In the end, the Lord was left with only a few objects to bequeath to his family. His descendants, Elizabeth, Francis, Andrew and Lady Delores, were so indignant about this, that they could find no rest after their deaths. Since that time they have haunted Darkmoor as ghosts and still grieve their missing inheritance today.
If you should meet these ghostly apparitions in the near future, however, you won’t need to give them a wide berth. They might even be kind enough to show you the Sarcophagus of Lord Pawtrey. It's not like they have a use for the objects inside any more.
If you're worried about your next big fight in a dungeon, don't be – these tips on how to defeat boss enemies will help you out:
In most dungeons you will encounter very powerful enemies that can make your life quite difficult. For this reason it is a good idea to sort your cards before you even enter. If you know your opponent's weaknesses, put some spell cards that counter those weaknesses into your deck. Before you go rushing off into battle, ask your friends for help. By joining forces, not only do you make each duel much easier, they're more fun as well! To reduce your opponents' attacks right from the start of a duel, defeat the enemy with the smallest amount of HP first (usually the boss' assistants). Do not underestimate the effectiveness of shield and blade magic! If you use these types of spells, then you'll be the one left standing even after the longest of duels.
