Greetings pirates! This illustrated guide to Gortez will cover the entire instance that leads to the Gold Monkey.
So let's get started: This is your starting map. Note: The 1,2,3,4 are the areas you visit in order.
Once you enter the area you have to seek out Aguirre who tells you that you must complete three tasks before you can meet Gortez.
1. The fist task is defeat a rather heavy Water Mole named Ordaz. This is what the battle board looks like:
A His health is 387
B. When you solo you must face him alone. Which means to companions!
C. He has no helpers either, so make use of the Exploding Barrels. But be careful because they will hurt you also.
2. After Ordaz is defeated Aguirre tasks you with collecting eight Spider Eggs, two of them are our in the open, the others are guarded by Spiders if your not careful. 3. When the Spider Eggs are collected Aguirre sends you to the crystal cave to hear the wisdom of the Crystals. Once completed Aguirre finally send you to talk to Gortez
As you may have guessed Gortez isn't happy to see you and things go down hill from there:
During this point of the battle you MUST GET TO THE TOTEM STATUES there is no point in defeating the enemies, Gortez will summon a new one at the end of the round if one is defeated. Since you can have up to four companions during this fight they can activate the Totem Statues. So follow this rule: Guide you and your companions to the Totem Statues to advance the battle:
When Gortez joins the fray he summons five archers as well. This is important: Focus your attacks on Gortez, plummel this brute with every thing you got and you will come out victorious.
