Lambent Fire is a new boss in Avalon.  He is in the Crystal Caves, behind a door that requires a Stone Key to enter.  He has quite a few cheats, and is supported by three minions – who also cheat.

Minion Cheats

At the end of each turn, the 3 minions cast specific spells in rotation.  At the end of the first turn, the first minion casts Dark Pact, giving the blade to the boss.  At the end of the second turn, the second minion casts Sacrifice, healing the boss.  At the end of the third turn, the third minion casts Bad Juju (in our runs, this was always cast on the wizard in first position, but it might be random).  The Pact/Sac/Juju sequence then begins again.  Killing the minions will reset this sequence.  However…

The minions cannot be permanently eliminated until the boss is dead.  Any minions that die, even if they kill themselves using Pact or Immolate, are immediately resurrected at the end of the turn.  The only way to get rid of them completely is to kill the boss.


Boss Cheats

“Don’t Worry, There’s More!” – Said right before a minion reappears.

“Now, What Else Can We Burn?” – Each time Lambent hits, he will give himself a 10% Firespear immediately after, while saying this.

“Fireblade!  My Favorite!” – Lambent steals all single fire blades, and the first (fire) of all elemental triple blades.

“I Like That Blade But My Brother Does Not!” – All single blades except fire cause Lambent to hit the recipient of the blade with a Brimstone Revenant.  Single pet blades (either card or May Cast) do not trigger this, nor do spears (pierce) or Brilliant Light.

“Let’s Play Boom Ball” – In our runs he said this once or twice, but nothing happened.  More testing required…

Lambent also removes all universal traps (Feint, Hex, Curse) using Immolate.

Things that seem to be ok (do not trigger any cheats):

  • Single non-universal traps
  • Triple traps (elemental or spirit)
  • Windstorm
  • Mass Prism
  • Bubbles
  • Shields

The spells they know:

  • Backdraft
  • Bad Juju
  • Berserk
  • Brimstone Revenant
  • Dark Pact
  • Efreet
  • Fire Trap
  • Fireblade
  • Fuel
  • Furnace
  • Helephant
  • Immolate
  • Meteor Storm
  • Sacrifice
  • Wyldfire


Because their attack is so one dimensional (fire, fire, and more fire), these guys are reasonably easy to defend against.  The standard approach of one hitter, one healer, and two setup wizards will work fine against this boss (as long as your hitter isn’t a fire wizard).  Just remember that each time you give your hitter a single blade, Lambent will hit them with a Brimstone Revenant.  Also, be aware of the large Backdraft traps that can get placed on you, and shield accordingly.  Use plenty of class specific traps on the boss, and take him out in one shot.  You will also want to pack some Cleanse Charms to get rid of any Bad Jujus that get placed on your hitter.
