He believes he's capable of destroying any rat in one blow. Naturally, having seasoned your Rat form, you'll want to test this theory out by completing the Ratsbane: The One-Punch Monk quest. Here's what you need to know before you start biting off more than you can chew.

Nobody Saves the World - Ratsbane One Punch Monk

You'll find Ratsbane inside the Round Tables, the Knights Guild headquarters. You're going to naturally assume that just because you're an "A" or "B" rank Rat, you can survive a punch from Ratsbane. That is false. Even if you're an "A" rank Rat, Ratsbane will destroy you in a single blow. If that's the case, then how do you survive him?

The answer comes in your Egg form. You unlock the Egg form by ranking your Rat form up to "B." On the surface, the Egg doesn't seem to do very much. You mainly use it to search for nests scattered around the world. However, the Egg form holds the key to completing this quest.

Equip your Rat with the Hardened Shell passive ability. This means you'll never lose more than 1/3 of your Max Health from a single hit. Once this ability is equipped, return to the Round Tables. Ratsbane will not be able to destroy you in a single hit. After you survive, you'll send Ratsbane into an existential crisis and you'll complete this stumper of a quest.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
