Province 36, Stage 10 – Final Boss Information

Note, the below section contains SPOILERS. I have hidden it away but an extra warning.

Click for information on S3 P36-10 Final Boss Fight!! Contains Spoilers

The boss

As with season 2&3, the final stage you face off against the “Big Evil”, who in this case is Demiurge… Well you face off a possessed Dr Moreau really…

Stage Effects

There are two is one stage effects.

One is Devouring Depths realm effect which has several impacts:
(1) holy heroes get an undispellable -50% blind ailment every 5 turns
(2) dark heroes get an undispellable +50% attack buff every 5 turns
(3) enemies are immune to status ailments or stacks

Devouring Depths effect removed on Feb 7th

The other is Unique Boss blessing which heals the boss & Dispells your buffs every 5 turns.


The Fight.

The fight itself is in 3 parts.

Part 1 is a normal map fight where you face off against Possessed Dr Moreau & 2 Abyssal Shades.

After defeating the 3 enemies it moves into a “titan style” fight where you face a mega Possessed Dr Moreau.
Like with titan fights there is a “stun spot” which prevents the enemy from doing slash attacks or casting their special skill.

After defeating Mega Possessed Dr Moreau, he dies… Then comes back reborn by the Demiurge, and even more pissed off!! In the third phase, you loose the stun spot…
It is possible to stun Mega Dr M but I wasn’t able to work out exactly what / how it happened… I think it’s to do with either amount of damage or # of tiles hitting him directly but am unsure.

Honest Thoughts?

This fight is actually quite hard… Between the Devouring Depths stage bonus of “no ailments” and the mega almost indestructible crystal shields the third phase really drags on and on and on… Definitely advise bringing overheal along and if you’ve got protection against fiends then they are going to help a lot too…

One major help is minion destroying heroes as they wipe out the Crystaline Shields instantly… So I’m talking heroes like Grimble, Gobbler, Costume Gormek, Captain of Diamonds, even Noor and Devana… These will dramatically improve the final fight.

Be prepared to sit back for a while and probably lose once or twice… Or even a couple more times.

There is nothing concrete just yet about a release date, but we have seen a sneak peak from staff and some of the heroes have made it into Beta now.
Note; this does not mean that anything is guaranteed…

How am I supposed to beat Dr Moreau after he revives? He just keeps spamming minions. Would grimble work on these minions? Help please!

Me went with my red titan team. Blue mono. :).
Me lost 2 tries with my farming team.

what was the loot for season finish?

I went in with Ariel, Richard, Glenda, Pengi and Gazelle. The boards were absolutely terrible, hardly any blue tiles but with some mana pots i could make it, its still frustrating as hell with those minions.


I got 300 coins, 2 troop tokens, 1 D blade, 1 tonic and 1 of each 3* non farmable AM.


So this was the last province in S4 :slight_smile:

I finally cleared it. Grimble was the answer for me. Now I’m thinking of ascending him as he is 3-70.


Hey there, does he immune to status ailments? Does Bera work to stop his minion spamming?

1 Like

Yes, he is immune so no Bera action.


honnestly very difficult this last step even in easy mode. Dr Moreau is a pain with his minions. Will try the blue option as well

I have the feeling the last wave is bugged. Was able to stun him but he doesn’t have the visible weak spot. Then how was I able to stun his ■■■?
