A map to the Hidden Forest - Tower of Elementals area in The Legend of Legacy.

Hidden Forest - Tower of Elementals - Enemies
  • Shadowcat
  • Warrior Drone
  • Wild Familiar
Regardless of how you enter, the Tower of Elementals area is filled to the brim with thick brush. It’s easy to get caught by enemies accidentally. Move with caution if you want to avoid fights. (Though you should be fine. They’re no more difficult here than in most other parts of the Hidden Forest.)

All three entrances to this area take you into a connected path that loops in on itself in the southeast, and aside from a few Sparkles and the occasional Chest it’s not very useful. Watch out for the poisoned grass just north of the ruined fountain. Unless you’re planning on completing the map your safest route is entering through the northern path and slipping through the first cluster of trees to the north as you walk west. You need to go counterclockwise around the edges of the map to reach the fountain at the center of this area.

The path splits in the northwest, and you’ll see poisoned grass to the south. Slip through the trees to the north and you may find a Chest. Head south to find a looping, enemy-bestrewn path to a Water-elemental fountain. You might as well activate it. You can find Sparkles on your right, including one that’s hidden behind a tree beside the fountain.

You'll likely spot your reason for coming here as you walk the road to the fountain. Yep, you're in for a boss battle.

The party battles Shadowcat Khan, a boss in The Legend of Legacy.

Shadowcat Khan

Well, that's... a bit bigger than the average Shadowcat. Shadowcat Khan can use the following attacks:
  • Normal melee attacks
  • Wild Claw, a stronger physical attack
  • Death Scratch, a powerful physical attack
This battle isn't a big deal, despite how fearsome the enemy looks. Shadowcat Khan may be accompanied by three Shadowcats, all of whom like to Stun your party. This can be bad luck if they target someone with a vital role, but they’re all old hat by now, and easy enough to kill with SP-sucking Skills. 

Take out the Shadowcats and Shadowcat Khan itself doesn’t pose much of a threat. You still need somebody to block, of course, but that's not a big deal. Throwing up a Water Shield will help mitigate the damage, if you snagged it from another section of Hidden Forest. Don't take too long, or Shadowcat Khan may use Death Scratch, which can wipe out one of your characters if they have less than 100 HP.

That's all for the Tower of Elementals. Needless to say, if you can conquer the Hidden Forest you're more than ready to finish up the Forest Ruins. The Shards you picked up here will come in very handy, so stick them on one of your attacking / support characters before you head into deadlier territory.
