I just played (and lost) Quest 1 and loved it so I went and downloaded all available quests and heroes.

But I don't understand the boss fight for Quest 3.

Can someone explain it to me?

It seems to me the only way to reduce the HP of the boss (which starts at 9 I presume) is to defend against an attack, and spend another dice.

There are 9 HP so I'd have to run 9 battles minimum. So does this mean I need to rest to reroll used dice?

And what are the number (1 & 2) Attack & Defense icons on the bottom left for?

They would suggest I have only 2 battles?

I really don't get it at all.

You can reduce the boss's HP by fighting his tentacles during your quest (and before reaching the final room). When you encounter a monster icon, you roll the dice to determine the strength of the tentacle that appears and after you defend from his attack (either successfully or not) you CAN discard on of your dice (either a 5 or a 6, depending on the tentacle strength) to inflict 1 damage to the boss.

So that means that by the time you reach the boss, he would have received some damage already and then you have two rounds to finish him off.

Can you use the same die that was used to defend with, to inflict the 1 damage (assuming it was 5 or 6)? Or does it have to be a different 5 or 6 die from your pool of active dice?

No, it must be different 5/6 die
