This article is about the boss fight. For the biography, see Vice Iron.

Vice Iron is the final boss of the Doomasta Stronghold raid, accessible after defeating the previous fifteen bosses.

After sabotaging and destroying all of his forces, including his most trusted associates and vassals, Vice engages you himself in his crucible, utilizing his ancient battle style, the siege machines of Doomasta, and lastly the remnants of the Ironhold stronghold. On Rising difficulty, Vice retreats to the summit of the stronghold, preparing to unleash the Ghost Doombringer cannon to destroy the Exo base.

An interesting battle for survival, Vice has three phases (four on Rising) with an intermission phase between them that requires steadfast attention. With the exception of Rising, Salvator Leonus and Claudrien (Rouge Noir) provide assistance, with lesser assistance from the latter on Rising.

Quotes[]

Intro

  • Vice Iron: So you have bested Doomasta. Her spirit and whatever lingers left of it means nothing. A final gift from my father's magicks.
  • Vice Iron: Come, make your way to the Crucible of Iron. There, I will end you myself. I have bought all the time I need for all of my plans to follow into place.
  • Vice Iron: Damien, Cleaver, Veronica. Delay them my faithful. Show them the might of the Synstrad. Their efforts will be fruitless before your onslaught.
  • Damien Iron: Yes, lord Vice.
  • Cleaver Iron: It will be a pleasure.
  • Veronica Iron: They will all fall to our power.

Shortly, the adventurers fight the three disciples of Vice, eventually defeating them.

  • Vice Iron: So it has come to this. Very well then. The last of my best. Where Oriklas and they have fallen, you would be damned to. Unlike those damnable fools. I understand now the pressure one must bear to suffer at the foolishness of one's subordinates. Salthried. Amkaar. Drachnal. You three are the last line of defense that stands before the superweapon. Do you understand the price for your folly?
  • Salthried, Amkaar and Drachnal: Yes.
  • Vice Iron: I have no say with spirits like I did with my late father, but his spirit will haunt you eternally would he discover your error of letting our kin down. Trust me in that you don't make that mistake.

The adventurers, Claudrien, and Salvator defeat Vice's best.

  • Claudrien: We are encroaching on him. He has done our kind a great injustice.
  • Salvator Leonus: I want him dead. For everything he has done.
  • Claudrien: Patience, Salvator. Our meeting will be inevitable.
  • Vice Iron: It seems what comes after death is more their worthwhile. No matter. Come then, heroes.

The team makes their way to Vice.

  • Vice Iron: Look what you've done to this stronghold. My gift from the Shardlord himself, and you've burnt it in pieces I dare not comprehend. Machines, plans, possible conquests, my own soldiers, all to ruin. With this glaive, I will take your heads and seek atonement for what I've allowed to transpire. 
  • Claudrien: Yes, the same Shardlord that killed your father. I question your sense of loyalty, Vice.
  • Vice Iron: Do not speak to me of such loyalty, Claudrien. Or should I say, Rouge Noir? You swore fealty to him and the same banner, then cast it aside all because he let you. He led you on a collision course with me, all because you and your own knights were to weak to face the evils he had trained you for!
  • Vice Iron: I will not be held for the sins of my father, but I will seek to make his destiny manifest once my work is done here. I have forged my own path to greatness.
  • Vice Iron: Ah, Salvator. The rat still lives. Your little revenge tour is on, I presume?
  • Salvator Leonus: We both know this ends with one of us dead. I will ensure it is you.
  • Vice Iron: I am one of the Seven Sols! If you expect me to beg for an easy end, you're sadly mistaken. Your friends aren't here to assist? No son of Loss'end, no Tetsujin? Claudrien here is a blunder who I've defeated numerous times.
  • Salvator Leonus: Deathlius and I had a deal. And I will pay my due.
  • Vice Iron: Hmph, let's see if letting you live was worth it in the end.

Claudrien and Salvator fight Vice. Vice defeats them and knocks them back, and shackles them on Rising.

  • Vice Iron: Pathetic. Let's see if your... friends... are really what our leadership makes you out to be.

Aggro

  • The superweapon will fire, regardless of the outcome. Your faith, your fragile sense of justice is horrifically misguided!

Dance of Death

  • A flawed technique!
  • Once again, an advantage you failed to materialize!
  • Who taught you how to fight?
  • Is this all you can do?

Sinrend/Ghostrend

  • Is this the best you can do?

Intermission

  • <player name>! (says in game as "meddlesome insect!"
  • Your actions are worthless! I'll hold you here until you beg to die!
  • I will enjoy exploding your bodies to bits!

Phase II

  • Not bad... but now you'll see the finest technologies the Synstrad have to offer!
  • Time for you to have a taste of our finest machines!

Iron Gauntlets hit target

  • Pitiful. Even a low level trickster could dodge that.
  • You should've ducked.
  • Terrible form.

Iron Gauntlets miss

  • An act of cowardice.
  • This is a champion?
  • You won't be so lucky again.

Phase III

  • I had hoped to kill you quickly. But you've proven to be quite a thorn in my side.
  • Ironhold warriors! NOW is the time to strike. Let's kill them together!

Tempestual Weapon

  • The power to rip you apart, and all you hold dear!

Phase IV

  • Vice Iron: Damnable bastards! You leave me no choice. I will kill you within the winds!
  • Salvator Leonus: Go... heroes. Before it is too late.
  • Claudrien: The Doombringer is aimed at the base. It must not fire.
  • Vice Iron: Let us end this.

Ghastly Swathe

  • I will carve into your spirit and tear it asunder!

Low health

  • Perhaps your techniques are... formidable.

Killing a player

  • Your techniques were inferior. You showed me as much.
  • You stood no chance.
  • Embarrassing.
  • A fatal mistake.

Defeat

  • I am... the weapon, of the Shard... of the Sun. My father... I... (every difficulty other than Rising)
  • So this is it... what a fight... I... Shardlord.... father... (Rising)

Outro

Salvator meets Vice at the rooftop, brandishing both weapons. Vice smiles, drawing his glaive, visibly wounded.

  • Vice Iron: Let's finish it, then.

Salvator fights Vice. Vice has an early advantage, before Salvator activates his new Kul Reaver powers, slicing Vice with spectral blades before impaling him with his own.

  • Vice Iron: A shame... you needed that.
  • Salvator Leonus: Now that... is a wound. But it will be a kill.
  • Salvator Leonus: You always... I never thought I'd be betrayed by you. We were allies, Vice. But now... do you have any last words?

Salvator holds his blade to Vice's throat.

  • Vice Iron: What arrogance is this?
  • Salvator Leonus: Do you have any last words?
  • Vice Iron: I would like to apologize thrice.

Salvator looks at him with less anger.

  • Vice Iron: Once, to my father, for failing him. Once, to the Shardlord, for never fulfilling my role and for not realizing my destiny. And to the most important one...

Salvator looks at Vice as if he were to say him.

  • Vice Iron: To Absol Rex... for not getting the job when I should have. Haha...

Salvator looks on.

  • Salvator Leonus: I was foolish to think you had changed. But I was wrong. You never should've let me live.
  • Vice Iron: My biggest mistake. Now... I can be with my father...

Salvator slices Vice off the platform, where he falls into the raging flames from below.

  • Salvator Leonus: Oh shit, the weapon. The weapon!

The Doombringer fires, but the projectile is blown up mid-air, breaking the cannon into pieces.

  • Salvator Leonus: What the?
  • Claudrien: Looks like we arrived in time. 

Claudrien hears a crack underfoot.

  • Salvator: We better go, then.

Claudrien smiles, and then Salvator's ring fires up, and Deathlius appears.

  • Deathlius Loss'end: Well done, Salvator. The crisis is averted... did you get him?
  • Salvator Leonus: Yeah. Finally.
  • Deathlius Loss'end: Did he change? Did he apologize?
  • Salvator Leonus: He did, but not to me. But now he's gone, forever. Time to tie up loose ends.
  • Deathlius Loss'end: I will see you soon, friend.

The call disconnects. Salvator picks up a paper with a map on it, and leaves.
