Part 31: Kingbird (4)


We toss away a rock and climb up the long rope to where the King of Birds is.

long rope

There he is.

king of birds 1

He gives us his gratitude.

He knows, though, that we still have a long way to go before everything is restored.

windvale cavern

I see, that unreachable cavern near the river east of here is probably the entrance to Windvale.

King of Birds: "Wind from it in the spring tells that we must fly to new lands. But this year, the wind has not blown. We are concerned."

"Concerned" is an understatement.

Speaking to the King again, he tells us we can get there by asking the trio of gulls.

eager gull

But, I have Ark tell one of the gulls to carry us to Windvale later. The gull's a bit bummed out...

Okay, that's it! I'm not sure that I'll continue this playthrough on the beginning of December like I promised in previous posts, but rather, next year, starting on late February to March! Until then, thank you for reading these liveblogs. Again, it really means a lot!

Part 31: Kingbird (3)


Whoa...

kingsnest

We speak to one kingbird, who explains that they build their nests in high places.

king of birds where

Another kingbird thanks us for resurrecting their population.

I have Ark climb higher.

small kingbirds

Awww...

The kingbird chicks are pretty patient. One wants dinner, but waits patiently. Another's proud that they can stay "home alone."

One kingbird mentions humans stealing their eggs, probably for meals. But since the human population isn't back, it's calm so far.

A crow with a santa hat who calls us "brother" is the shopkeeper for this place.

I get a healing bulb and a new suit of armor!

I have Ark climb to the peak of the cliff here.

west peak

The soul is another magishop.

One kingbird points us to where the king of birds is, who's all the way to the east.

I go back to the seagull again, and listen to his singing.

bro

The music begins to slow down...

Now our next stop is Windvale...

But how to get there?

A bit lost, I wander around the world a bit, even going back to Evergreen. But I end up returning to the bird sanctuary.

It seems that the little birds can talk...

kingbirds nest

Some small birds want to be like kingbirds...

The small bird at the entrance greets us to the sanctuary, giving us a small pleasantry.

By accident, I find out Ark can climb this rock wall...

ark can climb cliff

I have Ark continue up to the top of the sanctuary, where the kingbirds' nests are.

And we're back at the bird sanctuary!

bird sanctuary restored

A grown parakeet wants to fly, but hasn't been given the go-ahead from Windvale.

The small birds can't talk, though...

Unfortunately, the wind isn't blowing, so the birds are stranded.

A seagull's roosting and pecking at the sand...

just a migratory guy

His personality is sort of like Bonaire's from Alundra. He asks us if we want to hear a song. I say no. He turns his head and sighs.

I check around the sanctuary, and outside of it to see if anything's changed.

Part 30: Freeing the Birds (3)


Thank god it's not game over, but I have to fight the bird again!

After falling from the cliff again, on round 3, we make progress!

When the bird's health is low, the bird's friend comes to do its business...

After one more hit, the fireworks parade begins!

dark twins

A voice speaks again...

"Birds changed into monsters should regain their forms. But remember this: It is still too early for the world to be resurrected. You must lead the growth of living things."

Another montage!

The egg hatches!

An eagle starts to soar up to the sky!

More birds begin to fly through the peaks...

Part 30: Freeing the Birds (2)


...and I'm right, as the boss music starts playing as soon as we make it to the peak!

flying bird

The boss is a flying giant bird!

I plan my next strategy...

Looks like I'll have to wait until the boss is at a closer range...

The overgrown bird can shoot feathers, and can swoop down on us.

Plus, the giant bird brought in reinforcements!

reinforcements

The giant bird's partner throws down harmful droppings! Eeee...

I find out the partner can't be hurt.

I use a Fire Ring on the giant bird, which does little damage.

While the giant bird swoops on us again, Ark accidentally falls off the cliff!

A bit more prepared, we make our long trek to the second cliff.

Thanks to the Claws, getting there is a bit more easier...

long drop

What a long drop!

Up the second cliff, where the swooping Peritons await!

second cliff near summit

We've reached the top, and a medium healing bulb is the prize!

With nothing else here, we go back to the first cliff and continue on...

long climb up

It seems that we're getting close to the boss by how tall this cliff is.

Part 29: Cliff Climbing (5)


Now that's a lovely horizon...

I have Ark climb up the long cliff, reaching a tunnel. From the map, we're now in the large part of the fifth floor.

We run into more old enemies such as the Peritons, and Quaker stone heads.

Up another cliff, we meet more of those small rolypoly people, and find more money and a Magirock!

More rumblin' and tumblin'!

rumble tumble

At our landing spot, I notice another Magirock, but the vine to get up there is too short and too far to reach!

I have Ark go west...

vine climb

Dangit, we're almost low on health! After some healing, I check up on the description of the Sharp Claws.

sharp claw description

Westward, we're back at the entrance, but on the top cliff this time!

We reach more unreachable loot as well!

life potion

I leave the Grecliff, or as it should be called, the Great Cliffs, and do some R&R for a bit.

While I'm writing this, I forget to pause the game, as a stone creature attacks Ark!!

Part 29: Cliff Climbing (4) (TW: holes)


I give up and have Ark sprint away from them, and find more Magirock!

fireballs

On the other side of the large passage, we climb another set of steps into more of those falling platforms!

upstairs falling platforms

We make a sprint for it, which doesn't cause the platforms to fall. I realize they're not falling because of the Quaker head on the other side didn't jump...

The rest of the room has more of those large stone heads!

I have Ark sprint and quickly take care of them as we go.

We did it!

falling platforms end

Unfortunately, our small celebration is short-lived as more swoopers come to roost on Ark!

birds nest

So we're now at their giant nest, huh?

We noticed a sparkling thing in the nest, and pick it up.

sharp claws

Now we can climb those reliefs in the cliffs! Gur pynjf' hfr vf fvzvyne gb gur cvgbaf va gur svany Hapunegrq tnzr.

I also learn that the swooper birds here are called Peritons.

I test the Claws out on some of the cliff faces we've seen.

We climb back up again.

vines or hole

What to do, what to do?

Falling in, I steer Ark in a fork going to the left...

to the left

...and we end up at the unreachable chest!

unreachable chest

We climb the set of vines west of the chest, tumbling us down to another undiscovered part of the cliffs. The place is infested with more living mud puddles!

East is a dead end, and west leads us to a bridge over to the next cliff.

Inside a tunnel in the second cliff, small leaping mini-stone heads fire small fireballs at us!
