I have been seeing mention of the Fire Guardians in reference to the level called "Ends of the Earth." Are these the same loathsome creatures that look like floating Wizards that cannot be killed by any known method (at least to me)...the ones that are at the area next to where you have to break through the ceiling and then climb up and over a wall to get to a series of cannons that send you back down and into the path of these "Wizards" and those rotating knives? If so, I cannot say that I've noticed their eyes glowing green. If not, would someone please clue me in on what to do at the point where I described. I keep getting killed and am totally frustrated. And I thought "Parched Earth" was bad! :frown:
No, the Fire Guardians are a level unto themselves -after those "rolling fire" levels "If you can't stand the heat" and "Into the frying pan". I'm surprised you could get into the Ends of the Earth without collecting all the Xichrons from the other levels.
However, I'm now past the Fire Guardians and have gotten in the exact same spot as you are - trying to get past the sort of the witchlike things that toss fireseeds and disappear before you can do anything. I've gotten the smite rings but they don't seem to work. Tried to climb up a treetrunk to throw an ice wall to climb the spike walls, but die too soon.
Looking forward to hints from others who have passed this way...
I may be mistaken, but as far as I've heard no one had ever managed to kill one of those wraiths. Damage one, yet, by deflecting their fire back on them, but never destroy one.
Now, when I was in Ends of the Earth, I simply ran past them and ignored them (although since the're trying to kill you that can be reather difficult...). As for the part in question, MonsterLady, I did the same thing you're trying to do: tree truck spell and then ice wall in rapid sucession. Hopefullly, if you try it enough times, it'll start to work for you!
I have found it easier to just take the tree trunk spell all the way to the top, but have heard reports from others that they have a problem getting with memory or something that won't allow so much use of the tree trunk spell. If you don't get tree trunk errors, then I recommend using the tree trunk to get all the way up because it's easier than trying to switch spells before the trunk disappears.
Also, AlisonWonderland, if you haven't actually played the Fire Guardians level, I recommend that you go back and do so. Once you've beaten the fire guardians, you receive a necklace that allows you to walk on the red fire (Ends of the Earth introduces that new blue/purple fire) without getting injured. That may help your health situation a bit.
Good luck to all!
In that particular section, when you go down to get the first set of smite rings, (kill the goblin, get the rez necklace), there is a button on the other side of the right wall. Is is possible to push down that button from this area? I've tried everything and can't do it. If it's something that can be done I'll keep trying. (Thought perhaps it was something you access from a different direction later on)
You'll get to that button later. Don't worry, you won't miss it.
Ok I have gotten to the area with the three walls the blue fire. I haven't been able to find the blue key or the third button you need to raise the walls. I have been able to kill the goblin and use the cannons to get the health and magic. I can't find the buttons, I eventually get killed and have to go back to the save spot where you have to pass the spings to get across. Then I get stuck and quit in sheer frustration because I can't get back across the springs. :frown: Any help would be appreciated since I will never get off this level without major help. I would almost prefer to get slughtered in Total Annihilation by my husband, the frustration level is the same but at least I can yell at my husband
The extra button....you will have to go UP to find it. It took me a while also.
AND....anyone who can help me....how to i get into the area that has the rez necklace and the spiked ball? I keep getting thrown back across with the cannons after pushing that third button.

If you're referring to the rex necklace that's on the other side of a dividing wall beside the last button, then I'm not 100% sure where it was (I did it before and can't remember), but it deals with blowing a hole in the ground in a place with a blocked view.
That just sounds really vague

There's a transporter that takes you to the area by the last red button. That transporter is located in the area before you jump all the cliffs with the big claws. You have to spin/jump by the "square" rock piles (I think it's the first pile) and it will take you down to the transporter.
But, if you're talking about the two rez necklaces and spiked ball near the end after you get through the three pillars - I don't know how to get to those - can anyone reveal this one to us? Would love to know!!
To get those rez necklaces at the very end of Ends of the Earth, you just blast up! Nothing harder than that.
