View Full Version : Defeat the dark jedi Desann -Where is he???

09-05-2006, 04:08 PM
I have entered the Yavin temple and followed Desann down underground. There is a mirror reflecting him and he runs away. After that it's a dead end.
Help me what to do here, it's anoying me.

If that's the bit where Desann runs off and leaves you three tunnels to explore - go down the one of the left. :) And if memory serves, that wall that looks like a dead end... isn't ;)

Is that Ferenc as in Fess Ferenc by the way?

Blackout is right, Ferenc. After the multiple Desanns run away, head for the open doorway to your immediate left. The others are a trick. As you round the corner in the left doorway, there is a place on the floor with fire. Look right up above you; there is a pipe. Break it; water will put out the fire and then you can walk down the ramp. Jump down into the hole in front of you. You have three icons on some walls that you will have to Force Push. Once that's happened, you will hear Kyle say, "I have a bad feeling about this", because then there will be a series of rock walls that are opening and closing-a death trap. To make your way out of it, use Force Speed to get through them. If you are successful, you'll come out on the other side to an open doorway that leads to a huge underground chamber with a Force beam in the middle. This is where Desann is. You can either watch the cutscene or not, but your objective is to take Desann on, either in combat with your saber or you can destroy the support pillars if Desann is near one that you can bring down on him.

There's always a visual walkthrough (http://strategy.jediknight.net/contents.shtml) if you need a hint, too, btw. ;)

Use the fast saber stlye on Desann when you finally reach him--unless you're REALLY well practiced on multiplayer mode at jedi knight difficulty--possibly jedi master if you have the gumption.

Extra powerup:
Do try to push the switches on the walls to activate the force beam for a few seconds--Desann will stay, still staring and tauting. Then dorp in and shove him over or wait for him to come after you (Do try to draw him AWAY from the pillar of light or else he will get the power up and you won't!) and then go for it. It will buy you a precious 10 seconds or so of decreased vulnearability and being powered up--your force powers will have more stamina and kyle will be more resillient.

It's a tough fight--even on medium difficulty. I remember I finished him off in a really unique way; I either pushed or pulled him down on the altar so he was raised up ay my swinging level, went quickly around to a side of him and swung the saber from my right to left and cut him vertically from either toe to head or vice-versa from the side! That hit killed him...I only wish I had dismemberment enabled! That would have looked awesome! It would have been even better if I had a way of recording it and had done so--I'd broadcast it all over the web!

Ah that fight was sex. I actually beat Desann fairly quickly(set on Jedi/normal difficulty).

I had it set on strong style. And kept on using Force Push, sure you'll mostly get, "You dare push me?!" But once in awhile he'll go flying. It's then you run in and VMM! I finshed him that way in a couple of shots(surprised me in a way). All the other while I was running.

uh....that's an odd way to describe a lightsaber duel.....

Defeating Desann? Force Speed and he's dead. But that's lame.

So you use the lunge attack with fast style. 2 or 3 hits and he's dead. Oh forgot, that's lame too.

Sex and lightsabers? Hmm. Wierd.
The closest thing I saw to that is in Jay and Silent Bob strike back.
I also don't play it as incessently as I used to.

No, I sliced him longwise from his side after many unsuccessful strikes-not lunges.

And up yours, pal. What do you do that's so amazing anyway?

I've killed him in a lot of different ways, but my favorite way is to burry him under one of those big pillars... instant death.

23) Yavin Final [0 Secrets] {yavin_final}
>>Current Force Powers: all at level 3
>>Force Upgrade: None (you've got everything...)
>>Objectives: Defeat the dark Jedi Desann.

You start at the top of a long ramp... down it and up on the ledges for
items. Slash your way through the rocks blocking the passage (actually, Saber
Throw... they seem to explode a little)... in the next room rocks will be
falling on you, so watch out - even though they appear to be mostly illusory,
they can do a little damage. Up on the ledge and through the broken wall... to
your left the hall appears to end, though if you look closely you'll see that
the wall appears to be moving slightly. That's the way you want to go (through that wall), but first head to the right for a pair of Small Shield Boosters.

Through the illusion wall and up the ramp... at the top is a hall with
flame pedestals on either side; they can damage you, so use PUSH on each one to shut it off temporarily. At the end of the hall you'll get a short cutscene with three apparent Desann's... "Your efforts are in vain."

The right opening leads to a death pit (when you go through the wall),
straight ahead is just a mirror where Desann taunts you, but left is the way to
go. At the top of the ramp is a pipe in the ceiling; cut that to douse the fire
at the bottom (you can't jump over or otherwise get through the flames, no
matter what) and drop down the hole. Down in the pit you'll have four short
corridors... the one to your back is blank, but the other three have Force Push
symbols on them. Use PUSH on the one in front of you, and go down the new
corridor revealed - down near the bottom of the wall on your left is another
Force symbol... PUSH that; the corridor that was blank is now pushed back.

Use SPEED down this corridor (with the traditional Jedi phrase, "I've
got a bad feeling about this.") to avoid the moving walls - I've found that the
best way to make a clean run is to wait until there's enough of a gap in the
first moving wall, hit SPEED, and run through, dodging and weaving. Just as soon
as you're past the last moving wall, stop and get your mana back, as well as
heal up and otherwise ready yourself... because dinosaur breath is next.

Cutscene with Desann (cheesy, hokey, totally Star Wars...)

That beam in the middle of the room gives a Jedi *temporary*
invincibility... activate it by PULLing on the two symbols on the upper level
(one on either side), then jump through the beam. After you've PULLed the
stones, the beam will stay on for the rest of the level, running through a
regular cycle. Hit SPEED at the middle of the ramp and attack Desann.

He's not easy, obviously... he can use any Force power (at their maximum levels), and he can change saber styles in the wink of an eye. Do a lot of Quicksaving during the fight... if you manage to damage him, Quicksave and continue.

LIGHTNING works fairly well on Desann, if you have the Force power
left... but note that if you zap him, he'll zap you right back - it's best to
stick with the simple stuff like PUSH and SPEED.

If you use SPEED too close to Desann, he'll respond with Speed of his
own... if you trigger SPEED while still on the upper level (while he's below),
he won't notice it and he won't use his own. Also, when he throws his saber at
you, hit SPEED... he'll be temporarily defenseless, leaving him wide open to
your strikes. GRIP does not work... he can Push right out of it, but oddly
enough PUSH works sometimes ("You dare to Push me?").

Note that you can use your Lightsaber to chop at the base of any of the
columns in the room, and get it to fall - if you're careful (and very lucky),
you might crush Desann with a falling column.

Actually, I found Jerec (the main Dark Jedi in "Jedi Knight: Dark Forces
II") to be much tougher and harder to beat than Desann... but Desann is much
more fun.

One way I've found of defeating Desann easily (on the lower difficulty
levels): go down the ramp, and in the middle of it (that small level area) hit
SPEED... race down and just before you get to the bottom of the ramp, hit JUMP as hard as you can - as you sail through the air towards Desann, aim at him and use PUSH. As soon as you land, hack & slash... you should kill him with just a few swings.

Once Desann dies (I kept expecting his hand to start twitching as Kyle
leaves) you get the usual semi-cheesy cutscene, and the credits roll...

Well, I still think rolling stabb is a much easier way to kill him. And it is relatively easy to lure t-rex to the pillar position and get him cuushed. Its more fun that way too.
