Event - Council of Ghosts.jpg

Council of Ghosts is an event found exclusively in Act 2. A group of apparitions surrounds you, with one offering you a taste of their power.

Options[]

Numbers in parentheses are for Ascension 15 or higher.

  • [Accept] Receive 5 (3) Apparition. Lose 50% Max HP.
  • [Refuse] Nothing happens.

Dialogue[]

Encounter
As you continue your ascent, thick black smoke begins to billow out of the ground and walls around you, coalescing into three masked forms that start to speak.
Shape #1[1]: "Another puppet of Neow I think."
Shape #2:[1] "AGREED! SHE ALWAYS MAKES THE FUNNEST TOYS!"
You notice an over-sized grin as the third addresses you.
Shape #3:[1] "Ignore the others... Would you like a taste of our power?""
Accept
Shape #3: "Excellent!"
As the ghostly shape speaks, you notice its large mouth opening wider and wider. Thick black smoke spews forth and envelops the room. You cannot see or breathe...
Just before you lose consciousness, the sensation stops.
Whatever those things were, they are gone now. You continue on, feeling rather hollow.
Refuse
Shape #3: "How disappointing..."
Shape #1: "You will join us sooner or later."
Shape #2: "HA HA HA HAHAHA!"
The shapes fade away, leaving only the unnerving laughter ringing in your ears.

Strategy[]

This event is one of the most high-risk, high-reward. On one hand, you lost a hefty amount of your max HP, making it considerably harder to survive combats. On the other hand, that risk is offset by Apparitions obtained. Its Icon Intangible.png Intangible can make a big incoming attack trivial. There is a few thing to consider before you choose [Accept].

Trivia[]

  • This is one of a few event that refers to Neow, the others are Cursed Tome and Sensory Stone.
    • This event also reveals that Neow is female.
  • The shapes' knowledge of Neow and her power possibly means that they are of the similar caliber as her - possibly as another group of Ancients.
