It seems to depend on which one starts the combination process. if Earthquake initiates it you can do some major damage with Ice Blast. But even if you defeat Catastrophy in combined form you still have to defeat each elemental. Luckily the damage inflicted to the Catastrophy form does carry over to the individuals. So if you can defeat Catastrophy chances are when he breaks up it won't take much to bring down the individuals.

And I have another problem, and believe me  when I say it makes the Drake
liok like a Joke. How in the world do  you get passed those blasted
elementals on Level 13? It helps when they form catastrophy, but they never
hold that form long enough. Then I eefeat them with all but one of my
characters like so much chopped liver and any left are...well, not in such
good shape.

Hayden

I combine FIghter and Assassin with my main whenever possible and then I can

up Sneak Attack, Dual Wield, Short Swords and Critical Hit. FOr Necros
obviously Ice Blast, for Mages Grow and Shrink and for Healers the Heal and
harm spells. All those are usually maxed out or close to it by the time I
get down to level 25.

people will probably kill me for saying so, but I've found this a
surprisingly easy battle. Everyone bar the goblin king himself goes down
in virtually one sneak attack or a decent blast of magic, and the king can

be dealt with by targiting his noggin, ---- that's failing fun things such

as chalming him of course! Maybe it's because I tend to concentrate on
getting fewer skills up higher. thus, for a fighter I'll always
concentrate on duel wield and short swords (sinse I can guarantee on
getting a good pare of those if nothing else), and with those at 5 the gk
goes down like a tonne of bricks.

For thieves or assassins I make sneak attack or crytical hit a priority,
for mages shrink, and for necros ice blast. Harm or firebalt I'll use if
it's the best offense that character combo has, ---- though iceblast and
lightning I've found to be more effective, and I'll always go for moves to

screw up the opponent such as chalm or some of the bard skills.

Thus, when I fight the king I can guarantee that my two characters at
level 6 will have either one skill of five and one of three, or two at
four. Occasially I'll go for three skills at three, but only when the
skill combination is especially complimentary, such as archery multishort
and crytical hits, or duel wield, a weapon skill (usually short swords),
and crytical hits (as you can guess, the assassin job with the critical
hits skill in the full version is a favourite complement of mine to melee
classes).

For jobs with more unique abilities like mages I tend to just pick a
favourite couple and work on those, --- on this basis even my level 4 or 5

character will probably have at least one good skill, ---- possibly two.

usually, skills don't become useful until their at least level three, thus

in entombed it really does pay to have specialized characters for specific

functions, ---- one reason the game effectively gives you six sets of
skills to play with.

This is of course, just the stratogy I use, and there may be other ways,
sinse the game is a complex one, ---- but where as normally I'd try and be

even handed with skills in an rpg game, in entombed I've found it really
doesn't pay, and specialization is the key to winning.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
