When I first encountered Havel the Rock I was edging carefully down the stairs in his tower and I had a vague sight of something grey moving swiftly across the floor. I panicked, turned, and ran back up the way I had come. I may have been screaming, I can’t remember. I heard him hit the doorway just as I reached safety. I had no idea what he was, I hadn’t even seen him clearly, but I was scared. It took me ages to build up the courage to go down there again. And, when I did, he killed me in one hit. Whilst I was blocking. That made me laugh, just at the sheer front of it. I went back. He killed me again. I tried him again and again and eventually I learned how to beat him and that felt great.
Havel the Rock isn’t even a boss.
