Well, that’s not going to end well.
There goes the All-Seeing epithet.
Isn’t it eyeronic? Don’t ya think?
The blood-shot eye is the other socket.
something tells me they should have thunk about what they were doing first.
Is it is now it’s as if they’re banging their head against a wall.
It’s all fun, until…
Well, you get the idea.
Then it’s fun and games without depth perception.
And then it gets hilarious! :D
Way to be useless, Byron.
Actually, I’m thinking the fight ain’t over yet. Gigundis is your basic boss-monster, too big to go down with one blow.
My bet is that Byron will finish him off (smacking the shaft in deeper?) and wind up earning himself those fancy shoulder plates.
Gigundus seems nonplussed about the arrow. I reckon that armour’s hollow.
Ah, Byron. Your rage is, as always, frivolous.
Wow, Byron’s so ineffectual that his blows don’t even get onomatopoeia.
hmmm, with the bloodshot eye thing that these nuns are all obsessed over, and the general luck of our heroes in general, i would be willing to bet that he only has 1 eye, and that it wasn’t hit.
Oh for fuck’s sake Byron, why can you never be in any way effective?
I just yesterday created a one-eyed archer in Champions Online named See My Point.
Seymour Points would’ve been better.
i had an City of Heroes one-eyed ice controller called Despite My Blind Eye Icy but i had to abreviate it cos the name field was so short.
I never got around to playing Champions, but I did have the idea of a melee char that used the ice travel power. His name was going to be Zam Boni.
This has to be the dullest boss battle I’ve seen in a while. I guess they should have leveled up a bit before trying to take on a priestlord.
Unless…this might be one of those boss battles you can’t win to show how weak your guys are/how strong the other guys are.
Anyhow, I hope the next page opens with the priestlord going “Are you done?” or something along those lines.
To quote Frig ‘Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffuck!’
STOP ROLLING 1′S BYRON. YOU’RE VERGING ON SIDEKICK STATUS FOR DUSTY, AT THIS POINT.
Knowledge Religion! Knowledge Reliiiiiiigion! Use it!
Damn, how many hitpoints does Gigundus have? Arrow in the eye is definitely a critical hit and he’s not even phased.
Actually, he’s phased into the wall.
at the risk of sounding dimwitted, how is Gigundus harmful then? I see it now so I’m wondering why they don’t just back away from that wall? I mean heck, can he even materialize physically outside of the wall? This whole situation is strange.
I’m voting he’s a puppet or some kinda prop!
He looks like the Oogie Boogie Man
Something fletchy is going on here…
Maybe it’s the amulet….
Come on Syr, do SCIENCE to him!
Note how he towers above them. Gigundus probably isn’t even human, possibly an avatar or something as someone mentioned earlier.
Personally finding it hilarious that a Nun order is now represented by a one-eyed Gigundus.
Post the 5,000th comment!
*Blink blink* I’d uh…like to thank the thieves guild? For certainly not tirelessly training me in the art of the pun…
Eee-youch. Talk about some serious Damage Reduction, there.
I can see the whole ‘not human’ there. I mean, he just got shot in the eye, and there’s not even any blood. It wouldn’t surprise me if that was some sort of magically animated suit of armor…
Or if Gigundus is actually a Gnome or something, and is piloting the ‘Gigundus’ armor like it’s a Gundam or something.
“Or if Gigundus is actually a Gnome or something, and is piloting the â€˜Gigundusâ€™ armor like itâ€™s a Gundam or something.”
God, I wish.
that is an awesome Idea.
Say, didn’t a halfling just call Gigundus her mother?
Eye didn’t see that coming. Eye dont think Gigundus saw that coming either.
2nd to last frame : Gigundus is displeased.
last frame : Gigunus is … HAPPY!
I didnt know Gravedust had Happy-Arrows.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Since when does an arrow entering an eye make a “THUNK” sound?
(When it passes through the skull and into the back of his helmet, Niall [Yes, but still...])
Why are there so many eye jokes when no one’s eye is involved in anything that just happened?
Well, except for Gravedust’s aim. Holy boop-balls. Base Attack Bonus of what, +29?
Somebodyelse is doing it right.
So, not to beat a dead horse, but is Byron going to go berserk at some point, or what?
This would probably be a good time.
Heya, been away for a while. Quite a lot of work in just ~10 days.
I bet our Iron God here has some crappy, Death Star-like, weakness. Something like “smash that blue stone on his chest’ and the whole thing comes crashing down.
His towering, almost mechanical, stature and overall demeanor very much remind me of the Master Cylinder from Felix the Cat. Wouldn’t be surprised if he was a part of the inspiration for Gigundus.
Also the pointy hat makes him look like a KKK member.
Speaking of blue stones, it’s probably a coincidence… but does that stone look to any else VERY much like one of Gravedust’s spirit stones?
Just saying, you know. I’m sure being a spirit riding a suit of armour would make dramatic entrances and seeming invincibility much easier.
When you brought up “speaking of blue stones,” I thought you were gonna make some sort of reference toward how the pseudo-lesbotronic scene with Frigg, Syr, and Bandit made you feel.
heh. “blue stones” hope you all get that.
Why is everyone so down on Byron? The guy is a team player. He keeps the enemy occupied so the ranged attackers can do their thing. That’s just good strategy.
Two things to note in the last panel. 1. Big G is vaguely smiling. 2. There’s a crack running from his left eye down the from of his hood (helmet?). – I’m guessing the outfit falls away to reveal his “true” form.
which is really the orange guy from the preview!
Im sticking with my theory.
against all evidence to the contrary.
That’s not a crack, that’s just the design.
There’s not even a head in there is there?
Well, on the bright side, it’s two strips into a fight scene and Byron is still conscious!
lol 2 strips but not long in “real time”
omg gravedust. totally byron’s kill. oh wait, he’s hacking. nvm.
My thought is that he’s an illusion, a spell cast by that last Nun. Get the enemies fighting an invincible enemy that doesn’t feel any of their attacks and then hit them while they are distracted.
He’s immune to critical hits with massive damage reduction!!!
Honestly, cut Byron some slack. I’m pretty sure he is beserking, ’cause if he was thinking tactically he would have aimed for some frikken WEAK SPOTS in the armor instead of it’s strongest part. Besides, he’s what? Below level 10 and he’s fighting a god or its avatar. Or maybe a golem/animated suit of armor? What do you expect him to do with those little axes of his? He needs a Lachober axe! Perfect for cleaving a helmet in two! Or, better yet, a mace.
That was a quick fight.
Teach him to bring unfathomable clerical might to a bow and arrow fight.
What do you mean it’s not over?
Only eye have the brains to rule Lylat.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…
I’m gonna jump on and add my voice to those saying Cut Byron Some Damn Slack.
Speaking from a realistic sense, Byron was probably fighting specifically to give Dusty the chance to set up the shot. Unless he thought the plate armor on Gigundus was thin enough for a hard-swung axe to punch through (the fact the blades on Byron’s weapons seem fine despite having done no meaningful damage to sheets of metal says something).
That said…the Bad Guy has an arrow in the brainpan area, and he hasn’t dropped. And while we’ll have to wait for the next page to be sure, he doesn’t even seem harmed. So Byron not being struck by any counterattacks might not be a case of “he was attacking so fiercely Gigundus couldn’t manage one” and more a case of “Hahaha, puny mortals.”
Funny though. Since that armor covers so thoroughly, their only chances are what Gravedust just pulled (and damn was that a good shot), Byron striking the few joints on that armor that won’t be covered by metal…
Or a very strong fighter with a heavy, bludgeoning weapon suddenly getting in on the action.
In other words, SOMEONE GET FRIGG BACK IN THE FIGHT!
Also, I can’t be sure of this, but echoing some comments above – Is Gigundus fading away/phasing into the wall up there? Either trick would indicate the kind of deadly special power typical to cleric characters/boss fights, and the one that would easily turn this from hard-to-win battle into completely-impossible-to-win.
Not that “Shrug off an arrow to the face” is looking that good for our heroes either.
At the rate they’re going they’ll hit the Gigundis’ berserk timer (i.e., not to be confused with Byron’s berserk timer which is stuck perpetually at 11:59) for sure. They should probably just wipe it.
I think the “thunk” was the arrow hitting the back of the helmet…and there is no skull intervening.
I looked back and forth between this page and the last, and that does appear to be a crack in the helm, not a design mark. We’ll have to wait and see if perhaps the arrow had the intended effect. If it didn’t…
…the party’s about to be in deep, deep manure.
