Thalamus

Thalamus is the Boss of Y'lnoth, the Corpse City. Unlike most bosses, he has no health bar, and is more of a survival challenge. Defeating him gives you the Dream Shift ability.

 

A soul binding God that feeds off its victim's trauma. Those under Thalamus' spell are doomed to relive their greatest regret over and over. Not even the most resilient minds can withstand this onslaught of nightmares for long.

While the victim's soul is transported to Y'lnoth, their body is left behind, asleep in their original plane. Mortal hosts starve to death within a few days, hence why Thalamus must be so obsessed with immortals.

Thalamus Tomes

First Tome
  • Location: Located by the Archivist, at the far right of Aldwynn Sewers.
  • "A soul binding God that feeds off its victim's trauma. Those under Thalamus' spell are doomed to relive their greatest regret over and over. Not even the most resilient minds can withstand this onslaught of nightmares for long."
Second Tome
  • Location: Located within the Collapsing Nightmare, to the left of Wraith King Sirad.
  • " While the victim's soul is transported to Y'lnoth, their body is left behind, asleep in their original plane. Mortal hosts starve to death within a few days, hence why Thalamus must be so obsessed with immortals."

Thalamus 

Attacks

  • Orb Slam. Thalamus creates a series of purple damaging orbs above his hand, with one small gap. Thalamus brings his hand up, attempting to slam Sorun into the orbs. After a certain amount of time, the created orbs begin to move left and right. After even more time, this creates orbs on the bottom of his hand as well, after the hand slams upwards.
  • Spawn of Thalamus. Thalamus creates two Thalamus Spawn enemies on the opposite sides of his hand, with depleting yellow gauges. When the gauges deplete, a red line of energy connects them and Sorun. It pulses occasionally, dealing damage. This attack cannot be rolled through, but it can be blocked. After a certain amount of time, this attack creates three, with one in the center of his hand.
  • Blood Rain. Thalamus creates a purple portal above his hand that moves across its length, raining down damaging blood bullet projectiles. After a certain amount of time, this attack sometimes creates two portals that move towards the center of the arena.
  • Screensplit. Thalamus splits the screen into non-continuous fragments that Sorun must orient himself through. One slice of the screen begins to glow red. When fully red, it deals damage to Sorun if he is standing within that fragment. After a certain amount of time, multiple slices glow red.
  • Soul Barrage. Thalamus teleports Sorun to an invisible black platform and begins firing soul projectiles at him. The soul projectiles increase slowly up to four total. Duplicates of Sorun appear, making it difficult to identify which Sorun the player controls. This phase lasts until the kneeling Sorun with the prompt "Gain hope!" is interacted with.
  • Soul Crush. Thalamus teleports Sorun to an invisible black platform with two slowly-closing walls of damaging orbs. There are items on the ground, each titled an emotion. Sorun must interact with a positive emotion in order to leave this phase. 
    • Positive Emotions. Discipline, Willpower, Perserverance, Humility, Bravery, Resolve, [WIP]
  • Soul Drag. Thalamus teleports Sorun to an invisible black platform with two walls made of thorns. Sorun is then dragged towards one side of the walls, and must try to keep himself centered. This phase lasts until th e kneeling Sorun with the prompt "Gain hope!" is interacted with. After a certain amount of time, this attack also creates soul projectiles that are fired towards Sorun.
  • Phase Two. After witnessing the cutscene with Everly, Sorun must now begin interacting with the kneeling Sorun that has the prompt "Gain hope!" in order to progress in the fight.
  • Soulshot. Thalamus creates a ring of soul projectiles around his hand that begin to fire at Sorun one after the other.
  • Soulpillars. Thalamus creates two pillars of soul projectiles on opposite sides of his hand that move towards Sorun individually.

      Honestly I loved this boss fight; as in, I haven't had so much fun during a single fight in a game in a long time. It's great, because it breaks convention and requires you to think. Also, he looks goddamn menacing, which is perfect.

        "Cancelling the contract during this fight will transport the player to another location. However the only way to escape this location is by suicide blade, which will erase your save now." BUSTED i created whole run only for this myth and reddit post -> you can escape "white room" and another secret location by crow feather

          SPOILERS FOR THE THALAMUS FIGHT Twitch streamer Tsuvaro and I (V01Dking) put our heads together and found this 1) If you open your inventory during the fight, each of your stats change to read out "You have already failed Everly and Ash" 2) If you cancel your contract during the fight, you will be transported to a secret area know by fans as the "white room" or the "art room". It's... weird and complicated. Don't worry, you keep your contract... somehow. Not sure what's up with that. 3) If you feather out of the white room, you will be transported into a staircase in Gain's Cradle and be stuck. However, if you have warp orbs, you can just teleport out of the stairs. The hilarious thing is that 2 and 3 confirm that through exploiting secrets in the game, Thalamus is an optional boss, and you can continue the game without killing him. (You receive no talent point for this)

            Does anyone know the lore that is revealed if you open your inventory? I only found out about that after I defeated him and I’m curious as to what his deal is
