How to Defeat the Binary BardAfter he revealed himself on the Crystal gate and left, you must solve a puzzle to go through a wall where he enters. You must complete the two parts for this battle with one health meter only. First part is you will fly Merlin around, your robot owl friend, and needs to avoid on the spinning discs and Mordred’s robot arms and the zap you can get. Merlin needs to get two black bombs from those that were dropped by Mordred on the floor and then fly over him to release them when they start blinking red. When you’re done, Mordred will kill Merlin.
The next part is you need to lure Mordred close to the platform where the princess is trapped. You need to jump on him and then get on the middle of the first chandelier.
