Eye of the North minigames - Dwarven boxing

Eye of the North introduces several new minigames. In a series of blog posts, we'll have a look at them, starting with Dwarven Boxing.

To start on your boxing career, you need to talk to Kilroy Stonekin in Gunnar's Hold. He will initially give you a set of Brass Knuckles to equip, and you can then enter a boxing arena and compete against NPCs opponents from around Tyria.

As well as the Brass Knuckles you'll find your skills have been replaced with Boxing skills. As your adrenaline increases, you'll find extra skills becoming available.

Kilroy will give you a series of quests as well as random opponents. Towards the end of the quests you will be given Thunderfist's Brass Knuckles, a rare pair of inscribable daggers.

Some quick boxing strategies for you to try:

  • Brawling Block is a very useful skill, don't waste this on a regular attack. This skill can be useful in blocking more harmful attacks, such as Dismember and Cleave.
  • When using Brawling Straight Right, avoid using it as a damage dealer. This skill is very useful in interrupting self heals, such as Healing Signet and Lion's Comfort.
  • Brawling Combo Punch should be used right before you are about to get knocked out. This is useful, because as soon as you get back up, Brawling Combo Punch is recharged.

We'll cover some of the other Eye of the North mini-games in other blog postings.
