Ylmer’s Awakening – Act 1 Boss in Across the Obelisk
Ylmer is the first boss that you will face that protects the Obelisk during Act 1 and defeating him won’t be much of a challenge if you play the right cards.
While the fight is fairly easy, you can use the Moonstone item from the Forest Glade node to make it easier.
Here you need to select either the [Combat] or [Steal] option to obtain the Moonstone.
Select [Loot] and wait for the Moon to arrive before you pick up the Moonstone.
Now head over to the Old Tree node to start the Ylmer’s Awakening quest.
Since you have obtained the Moonstone, you can access an additional dialogue [Ambush] to use the Moonstone and lure the dryad and remove her from combat.
This will make the fight relatively easy so you can defeat Ylmer.
