List of Contents
|They look almost exactly like Ancients, but there's something... off about them. Mom always called the Soul Eaters, "Dangerous abominations." She never said a bad word about ANY living creature (even poisonous bugs!), so her saying that always stuck with me. I wish I could tell her Father and I killed one.|
|Recommended Level||Level 3-5|
Soul Eater can be found in the Volunder Mines during the Favor Second Hand Soul.
|From Brok's Shop, take the stairs to the left as you exit onto the bridge. Head down to your boat and head to the southeast, where you'll find a small cave leading into the Volunder Mines.|
|Armor Set||True Warrior Set|
|Axe Level||Level 2|
As soon as you step off the ledge into the Soul Eater's domain, it will turn around and stand in place for a few moments before the fight begins. Due to its hard exterior, it is not possible to cause it harm in this state. Wait for it to open up its chest instead, and run behind the pillar at the center of the room.
It's primary mode of attack, this Primordial will cross its arms over its chest – all before it opens both its arms and chest wide open, shooting balls of fire at you from afar. You can throw your axe at this opening, which casues pieces of the Soul Eater to break off. Pick these up and throw it back at the creature's open chest to cause significant damage.
When moving close to it, Soul Eater will quickly kneel down, pumping its fists in the ground that causes a small pulse of fire energy, which can cause you to fall flat on your back. There is little you can do in this scenario except to move away.
A variation of its kneeling attack, it will go down flat on its stomach, before a larger pulse of fire energy will blast outward from where it is. This blast will cause more damage when compared to its kneeling attack, and can be easily avoided by rolling away.
Despite its ominous name, going through a fight against the Soul Eater isn't particularly difficult. There will be a stone pillar in the center of the area you fight it in; use this to shield yourself from its Fire Projectiles. Having a good angle can allow you to throw your axe or its explosive pieces into its chest without exposing yourself.
