Adventure Guide

Clad in gleaming golden armor, with an imposing frame that looks to have been chiseled from granite, Hymdall remains ever vigilant at the gates of the Halls of Valor. Tasked by Odyn to keep the unworthy from entering the Halls, with deadly storm drakes circling nearby ready to heed the call of his horn, he will never falter in his charge.

Overview

Hymdall uses his Horn of Valor to call in Storm Drakes to breathe lightning on the platform. As the fight progresses, the number of drakes called by the Horn of Valor increases.
