What is the Winter Bounties event?
The Winter Bounties event is a limited-time event that allows players to fight monsters and bosses to earn Astrobells. You can collect or exchange them for a variety of rewards at the in-game store.
The event lore reveals that since a creature arrived through the broken space continuum, it has and continues to wreak(ed) havoc in the nearby ancient ruins of Esperia.
Efforts to defeat the creature were unsuccessful, but its weakness was discovered by a zoologist: sound. The Astrobells were created by the best craftsmen and were distributed throughout the realm. Unfortunately, the creature is very smart, and laid waste to the craftsmen’s workshops.
They entrusted a hunter to track down the creature’s lair. Adventurers can reclaim the Astrobells and will be rewarded for their efforts.
AFK Arena: Burning Brute
The Burning Brute is a powerful, unknown creature that serves as the boss of the Winter Bounties event. Players thus first have to defeat him in order to acquire the Astrobells. He is also a recurring boss in The Twisted Realm.
The creature came to Esperia when the space continuum was ripped apart and it proves to be a hellish opponent. Fortunately, he only awakens once a year, generally around the time of a new year.
During the event, you can attack and defeat the monster once daily, and the more damage you deal to Burning Brute, the more Astrobells you will receive.
As such, players should carefully consider which heroes they want in their team. It is recommended that you use the following heroes:
- Elijah and Lailah
It is supposed that this team is able to deal a lot of damage to Burning Brute, which essentially means that if you use them, you will receive more Astrobells.
Burning Brute’s skills
Similarly to other monsters, Burning Brute has unique abilities and talents. The following table outlines his skills and gives a description of each:
|When Burning Brute’s health falls below 80 and 50 percent, he will fall asleep for 5 seconds. If players deal damage to him in this stage, he will wake up and use a ferocious method of attacking.|
|The boss breathes fire out of its mouth, which inflicts damage on its enemies. Once it awakens from its doze state, it receives a new ability that causes the ground under its enemies’ feet to burn.|
|The Brute summons a fiery barrier around itself at the beginning of the battle. It can reduce the damage of all incoming attacks by 80 percent. It is deactivated when the Brute’s doze ability is active.|
How to defeat the Burning Brute
Based on Burning Brute’s skills, you need to deal enough damage to cause the Blaze Barrier to deactivate, then you must carefully wait for the 5-second period of its sleep to finish. Once it wakes up, players should inflict as much damage on it as possible.
Does the Burning Brute have the same skills in The Twisted Realm?
As stated above, Burning Brute also appears in The Twisted Realm, though it features different skills in this mode. Even though it does have Flame Breath and Blaze Barrier, it also has Savage Awakening and Shadow Fangs.
