The walk up to him...
To tell the truth, I had such small guts it took me 5 minutes to actually walk up to him and battle ;).
It took me 3 times to kill him, I lost the other 2 times before the minions were even gone, but I remembered to mark my spot, immediately port back and use a potion and adjust my deck from what I had learned the first 2 fights. ( they were both kinda unlucky, couldn't find my spells needed to take minions out and stuff ) I was down to my last potion at the time I beat him, so I guess it was win-or-go-home :-P.
I had a bolt that had a lot of traps/blades so I thought it would kill. It didn't, but it was the point when I knew I would definitely pull it off :D.
If you remember back at the beginning of DS, Cyrus said it would be almost impossible for me to try to beat Malistaire alone, well, he was wrong hehe :D.
Close calls: I summoned my Storm minion 2nd turn, and they soon all jumped on him while I was able to pull off a Storm Lord to finally kill those pesky servants. One used Scarecrow! O_O lucky I had a death shield on at the time... My minion had 16 health when Malistaire remained, and then Malistaire took his eye for me, so my minion stayed the whole battle :-P. Malistaire also fizzled on an important Skeletal Pirate, and I used a friend's tower shield he had given me next turn and Mali used it again :-P ( Pirate ). Anyways, I got the Death Ebon robe. ( Storm robe would REALLY have made my day, hehe ) Thanks to: Thomas Deathgem, for providing an extra person to get past the crystals ( and we skipped the gurtoks ) and William Lioncatcher, who donated some treasure cards that came in handy, like the Tower, a Death shield and a Life healing boost :). So, I'm the 2nd Storm wizard to officially pull this off I think, and now I have to attend to the back-to-school bash! And eat a milshake, nom. Happy Farming!
