Cuckoo’s Evergaol walkthrough
The only reason for you to go to Cuckoo’s Evergaol is to challenge and defeat its imprisoned field boss. The portal to Bols is located in the center of the Evergoal and will be immediately accessible as soon as enter the location. You do not have to jump through any hoops to activate the portal.
Use the portal to take on Bols, a massive Troll Knight with slow mobility owing to his size. However, do not let his sluggish movements fool you. Bols hits hard. His attacks deal a lot of damage, so you need to be prepared to dodge or roll out of his way. As a tip, you can safely move under his legs to avoid most of his attacks and combos.
