We had sealed Hamboog within his canyon, but left unchecked, he would eventually break free. If that happened, all of Ten-Towns would suffer raids from his goblin horde. And so now was the time to assault his throne room. Once Hamboog is defeated, we would tear down his tower and restore dignity to at least this part of the Dwarven Valley.

The Goblin Tower Main Objectives

Reach Hamboog's Crystal Tower

1 Dark Alliance The Goblin Tower 01

5 Dark Alliance The Goblin Tower 05.png
Defeat Emperor Hamboog
Defeating all of his minions removes the shields around Emperor Hamboog. Attack and defeat him to end the mission.

Boss Strategy: Hamboog

Easy Boss

Dark Alliance The Goblin Tower 06
The boss is actually relatively easy to compared to the other we have faced thus far. You just have to take care of his upgraded minions which are quite easy to defeat as well. Attack him relentlessly and he will fall quite easily.

Easiest way to defeat him is to ensure he does not cast his magic. Otherwise, you will be peppered with a barrage of magics, exposing you to his minions as well.

The Goblin Tower Chest Locations

Location Directions
1 The first chest is located just outside the entrance area. Run through the field of poisonous flowers then climp up the ledge. Behind the barricades will be the chest.
2 The next chest is located near a broken bridge. There is a ladder you can climb up to near it to get to the chest.
3 After crossing a wooden bridge near the boss area, take a turn left and you should be able to spot the chest.
4 Head to the center of the damaged bridge and jump down in the hole. There'll be a chest at the bottom.
