Find and kill the Black Baron.

  • You start out in the East part of the map in the room at (I-8).
  • Go west and scout the area for the Black Baron. If you can't see it from the upper ledge, drop through the broken bridge and scout him out.
    • He can spawn anywhere on the map.
    • He does not show up on Widescan nor monster radar.
    • Do not forget to scout the starting area as Black Baron may spawn just near your pop point but won't aggro you.
    • It is faster to split to find Black Baron if he's not spotted near start, but take care with Pugils.
  • Kill or Sleep any Periqia Pugils you happen to aggro along the way, but try your best to avoid them so you don't run out of time.
    • The pugils have arround 5000 HP.
    • They perform all the usual pugil abilites.
    • Aggro can not be lost by Deodorize, however, putting a pugil to sleep and running away a certain distance will deaggro them.
  • When you find the Baron, proceed to kill him like you would any other Imp. Don't count on using your 2 hour abilities in a pinch since he spams amnesia and silence.
    • He does not aggro.
    • He has ~2-3x the HP of a regular imp.
    • He performs all normal imp spells and abilities.
    • He will warp around the zone every 15% or so. He will just disappear and reappear unclaimed. He will not regen HP.
      • If you have an automaton, avatar, or jug pet attacking him, it will follow him after warping. This is a nice way to track him down quickly and save time.
  • When you have killed the Baron, the Rune of Release and Ancient Lockbox appear where you started.
