Ione is the first Boss in Death's Gambit. She is first encountered within the Gaian's Cradle, where Sorun must fight her in order to open the door. After the Forgotten Gaian has been defeated, she will arrive in Central Sanctuary, where she can teach Sorun the Lunge, Spear Rush, Cyclone, Serpent's Barrage, and Sky Crash abilities. 

 

A remnant of a disastrous expedition, Ione has been serving Endless for the past four years. Whether to prove something to Endless, or to herself, Ione walks a precarious tightrope while still a mortal.

It seems that every sundown Ione takes a reprieve down to the depths below Sanctuary. In the abode of the Dark Knight, she finds solace in keeping him company. Perhaps he stirs memories of a different time for her.

Ione Guide

Attacks

  • Lunge. Ione lunges towards Sorun, slashes up, then slashes down.
  • Leap. Ione leaps towards Sorun, slashing down while landing.
  • Cyclone. Ione spins her spear around, attacking two times.
  • Skycrash. Ione leaps up into the air, and descends down on Sorun. The location where she lands is marked by a glowing yellow aura that follows Sorun. When she is on low health, illusions of Ione will also perform this attack, but it will not deal damage.

Heroic Attacks

  • Heroic Cyclone. Ione spins her spear around, attacking two times while dashing towards Sorun. She will sometimes follow this up with another slash.
  • Heroic Flurry. Ione tenses for a moment, before lunging towards Sorun with a damaging stab. She then slashes down, then up, then down.
  • Heroic Skycrash. Ione leaps up into the air, and descends down on Sorun, breaking the platforms throughout the arena if they are in her path. The location where she lands is marked by a glowing yellow aura that follows Sorun. When she is on low health, it no longer follows Sorun, and illusions of Ione will also perform this attack, but it will not deal damage. 

Strategy

  • The Skycrash attack for her normal fight does not break through platforms, making it an option to hide under safely and heal.
  • The Skycrash attack will stop following Sorun a few moments before Ione strikes. 
  • Considering her highly telegraphed attacks and lack of shieldbreaks, Perfect Blocking is extremely viable against Ione.
  • While speaking at the start of her Heroic fight, she can be attacked, allowing Sorun to deal a large amount of damage to her.

 

Ione Notes & Trivia

  • Ione is refered to as "Lionel" within the game files, implying that she was likely initially called as such.
