|Enemies||Frogloks, sea monsters, fire beetles (source of Fire Beetle Eyes)
|Special||Conch (possible), hidden route
|Saves||2 total: start, at Droon's Den south entrance
|Exits||Boat, Droon's Den (in and out the other side)
On the dock near the boat you will see two frogloks swimming around for an easy kill. That side of the
dock is where you are going rather than along the more obvious route past the save point. Go down that
path and hug the left wall. There is one chest down in a "room" to the left, and later another four
down a side route to the left. At the fork to first room to the left you will encounter a crab-like
sea monster. They are big and green and have a stun attack using their body, but they don't have
ranged attacks. Soften them up with ranged attacks of your own and by the time they get to you a couple
of melee hits should finish them.
At the 2nd save point is the southern entrance to Droon's Den. When you enter it you will see a cutscene
of Droon who is very similar to Broon. He has all the same attacks as Broon, but he is stronger. Unlike
Broon, Droon uses his rear poison gas attack less and his throwing sand attack does something. The sand
doesn't deal damage, but it does make you "hiccup" interfering with your ability to block, so repeatedly
use jump back if that happens. Melee is still the best strategy. If you are lucky he will use the rear
gas attack which will let you get behind him for a bunch of free attacks. When trying to get to his
rear, always go clockwise around him as he attacks are weaker on his right side. If he tries to spit
poison at you, get to his rear for a few hits. More likely, you will just have to block and time your
counterattacks and keep jumping away if he hits you with sand. If he is the third and last cyclops you
kill he will drop the Conch. Don't forget the two chests on either side of his den.
Leaving via the north exit in Droon's Den will bring you to the other side of the Island of Lost Hope.
You will be immediately attacked by a group of three fire beetles. As you might expect, they are immune
to fire damage, but not explosion damage. Dodge their fire spit and they should be easy enough to kill.
Fire beetles are also the only monsters that have the potential to drop fire beetle eyes. After dealing
with more frogloks and fire beetles, you will drop off a bridge to get back to your boat.
Most Efficient Route
When you reach the save point, go back along the left side of the dock where the two boxes are to
continue. Once you reach the 1st save point and turn around, that path will be on the right. Follow the
left wall all the way to the 2nd save point and Droon's Den. On the other side of Droon's Den, continue
following the left wall back to your boat.
After getting into the water at the dock, follow the right hand wall to the 2nd save point and Droon's
Den. After killing Droon, use the north exit. Follow the right hand wall back to the dock and exit via
