Kids on Patrol Tips & Tricks

  • The Hedgehog Pie King comes with two Hedgehog Pies alongside it. The catch is the King will cast Protection on them both, decreasing the damage they take from all attacks.
  • The Hedgehog Pies are the real threat here, so avoid their Bounce attack that will stun you and deal a fair amount of damage and hit them with your strongest abilities.
  • All three are weak to ice magic as well so if you get the chance use Blizzara on them and they should stagger and go down.
  • Completing this quest will also unlock the A Verified Hero Side Quest.
