    20 Heads Are Better Than 1- A Guide To Fighting The Hydra

    Late into the Aquila storyline you will be asked to fight a boss known as the Hydra. This is a very unique and challenging boss fight. Below I shall outline this fight.



    You start off fighting 4 heads



    Ebon (black)
    Scarlet (Red)
    Amethyst (Purple)
    Cobalt (Light Blue)

    The Ebon Head is the main head that you need to defeat. Once that head dies, the battle is over. But there is a catch.



    Once the Ebon Head takes a certain amount of damage it will disappear. To get it to return you will need to kill one head of each color in any following order:


    Once you do that the Ebon Head will reappear and you can do more damage to it. Then you rinse and repeat.

    Cheats:

    Now for the cheats. Each head has a unique cheat that activates under certain conditions.

    The Scarlet head's cheat will activate when you, an ally, or a companion moves into a square adjacent to this head. When this happens it will trigger a fire defense, and it will spit fire it the general direction of the person who went near it.



    The Cobalt head has the most annoying cheat in my opinion. This activates each time the head takes damage. When it does it will use an ice wall that goes in the direction of where it was hit from.



    The Amethyst head's cheat triggers when attacked by a melee companion or player. It is called Lightning Strike. It is basically a First Strike power that will always activate when attacked by melee.

    Another thing to remember is when a head is killed, two more heads (slightly weaker versions in terms of health and damage) of that color will spawn to take it's place. This can make the battle quite crowded and can quickly turn into a situation like the one below.



    Eventually when the Ebon head dies you will win the fight. You recieve a nifty new badge as a reward for this feat.



    Let me know if there is anything I missed or should add.

    These heads (Other than the Ebon Head) range from the Level 61-63 category but will have a health capacity of about <1000 after the first couple of heads. Even though their weak in health, their cheats, Epic's, and population makes up for it.

    Only attack the heads you need unless it is an emergency. You do not need any more heads than you already have.
    Save your Gaurn.+Epic hits on Ebon, since as I said before...the others aren't too savvy in health after a while. ^-^'

    The fight is simple to follow and keep track on, just a mighty challenge.

    These aren't that strong, but be careful, a ton of them can easily kill you. Like Ionz said only attack the other heads if its an emergency, you don't need 2-4 more coming up and killing you.

    Are the heads stationary or do they actually move?

    Either way, you always gotta be careful of where ya want to move to
