Notes and Tips

  • To make the fight easier kill the Meat Golem in the cage closest to the entrance of Kniles room with a ranged character then try to snipe the one on the left side of the room while remaining on the ledge.
  • Meat Golems do not have armor, making them easily dealt with if they are frozen.
  • If you have teleport, you can use it on Kniles to move him to the other side of the room and keep him out of the fight for a while.
  • If you have teleport your can use it to pull a Meat Golem out of a locked cage and teleport Kniles into the cage, this will cause Kniles to drop out of combat entirely letting.
  • If you don't want to fight, give him Atusa's servered leg (if in your possesstion) and you can get the face ripper item

      Not sure if this is intended but I kited Kniles far towards the entrance (near the silent monks) and for some reason the meat golems and the Agitated monks started fighting each other, making this fight absolute faceroll.

        I found another way to kill Kniles; this was on the hardest difficulty. First, using the teleportation gloves, you can individually pick off two meat golems on the right side of the room and one of the monks. To do this make sure you are far enough away from everyone else, and then teleport the closest enemy to your group, far away from any support they might have. If you do it right it will be a 1 vs 4 fight which is quite easy. Note you can literally teleport the meat golems out of their cages.

        Now I haven't figured out any angle to do the same on the left hand side of the room (where the sewer grate is). However, it looks like Kniles can only activate his backstabbing teleportation ability if there is an enemy in range. This means if you teleport him into one of the cages previously reserved for his golems, and you're far enough away, he can't escape. Then it becomes a fight against two monks and two meat golems, which is much easier.

        Once they are dead, Kniles somehow appears where he was before you teleported him, and it becomes a 1 vs 4. He's still pretty dangerous but once you whether his first combo, its not too bad. I have no idea how people would otherwise manage to take him on with all his supporters. If it weren't for these gloves I don't know what I would do.

          If you manage to kill Kniles before he gets a turn, the meat golems will be stuck in their cages until they can break the doors. Means you can deal with the parts of this fight separately. Probably not doable on higher difficulties.

              I found there is a nice glitch to kill him easily initiate combat on the closest monk to the main stairway have all your guys run to the stairwell leading back into the dungeons have one guy wait for knile to come near teleport him near the stairwell then enter the dungeons he will follow you and sit there he will not attack and he will be easy to kill
