AVATAR: THE BURNING EARTH

DS VERSION WALKTHROUGH

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

Welcome to my walkthrough for "The Burning Earth"! I wrote this a few years ago 
but didn’t get around to finishing it off and posting it. I haven’t gone back 
to the game to double-check what I’ve written, so any errors or gaps in the 
information will have to stay for now. It’s still better to have most of a 
walkthrough instead of nothing.

One particularly big gap in my notes is the "Escape from the Library" minigame
which I remember being quite hard. Apologies if that is what you came here 
looking for!

WHAT'S CHANGED FROM THE FIRST GAME?
-----------------------------------

This game roughly follows the plot of the second series (though with major 
warping of the timeline), rather than having an original storyline. Toph 
replaces Haru as the earthbending member of your party. Despite what the box 
implies, you do not get to play as Zuko and Iroh, other than one unrepeatable 
minigame.

You only have two characters in your party at any time. You cannot choose 
your party (it's determined by the storyline) until right before the end of 
the game, when you can revisit all areas of the game.

The battle system has been improved - you can now jump (this replaces the 
Bending Defence ability), and Bending Attacks now run on a more typical MP 
system instead of the single chi gauge of the first game. Computer-controlled 
characters still don't seem to use bending attacks on their own.

There are now - thankfully! - resting areas in each level where you can 
restore HP, and healing items are far easier to come by. 

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

-----------
GAME BASICS
-----------

GAMEPLAY
The game is mostly played on the field screen, but encountering an enemy will 
take you to the Battle Screen - a copy of the area where you previously were, 
but there are multiple enemies and you cannot leave until you win or escape.


CONTROLS
The basic moves while fighting are:
Y = basic attack
X = special attack
A = guard
B = jump
In the field, you cannot (and do not need to) guard, and special attacks can 
only be used on specific obstacles. (Using special attacks in the field still 
costs chi, though you'll probably have recharged by the time you get into 
battle.)


BATTLING
Individual defeated enemies can drop money or healing items - these have to be 
picked up (by running over them). They will disappear after a short time, so 
don't wait until the end of the battle to collect your prizes!
Computer-controlled characters will not pick up prizes for you.


STATS
Characters stats (HP, Power, Defence, Sp*) can be boosted by giving the 
characters the corresponding "____ Source" item, or certain other items.
*I honestly am not sure what "Sp" is or what it does. Probably Speed - it 
might affect how fast your Chi gauge refills - or it might be Special and 
affect the strength of special attacks.


OBJECTS AND OBSTACLES
There are many items to be found by breaking objects such as crates. Also some 
areas may be blocked by obstacles that a certain character needs to clear.
- CRATES and JARS can be smashed by any character's Y attack.
- LEAVES can be blown away by Aang (X or Y attack) or by Sokka (X attack). 
- ROCKS (small ones concealing items or large ones blocking paths) can be moved
  by Toph. (X attack)
- VINES can be cut by Sokka. (X attack)
- CACTI can also be cut by Sokka. (Sorry, there's no Cactus Juice.)


ITEMS
You have limited item space in your bag at the start of the game - later your 
bag is upgraded and you can carry many more items.


SAVING
Open the menu, and either tap the bag icon in the top-left corner, or press the
L button once, to reach the Save menu. Move left or right to select the scroll 
you wish to save to.


THE MAP
You can view the map on the lower screen by pressing Select.
Important locations, such as buildings that you can enter, are clearly marked.
The rest area is marked by a speech bubble with "ZZZ" marks. 
Your next destination is marked with a red arrow.


===============================================================================
===============================================================================

------------------------
CHARACTERS AND ABILITIES
------------------------

Each character has four special attacks, using up varying amounts of chi.

If I remember correctly, the final attacks are unlocked by finding all the 
cabbages and returning them to the Cabbage Merchant in Ba Sing Se.

3. Wind Blast    Level 22   Leaps up and fires a powerful blast of air.

WALKTHROUGH

-----------------------------
CHAPTER ONE: THE AVATAR STATE
-----------------------------

The game begins with leaving the North Pole, and arriving at General Fong's 
fortress.

~Aang~
1.  Fight the soldiers.
2.  When you have control again, go to the rest area in the west.
3.  Go to the Infirmary, on the opposite side of the fortress. Meet Li Sha 
    (really Song from the episode "The Cave of Two Lovers"). Anyway, she needs
    Aang and Sokka to find some herbs for her. 

~Aang and Sokka~
4.  Before leaving the fortress:
    ~ go to the central tower and speak to General Fong to play the Portrait 
      Puzzle minigame. Use the Tea Set you receive straight away - it raises 
      your strength by 5.
    ~ Smash a jar in the corner of the southeast lower area to find a cabbage.
    ~ Visit the warehouses in the north section of the fortress. You can 
      pick up some supplies in the one on the right, and the guard at the left
      warehouse will ask you to find the missing key for him. (Although you can 
      find the key without speaking to him first.)
5.  Leave the fortress. Head south until you reach the fork in the road - go 
    left here. Find a cabbage under some leaves along the way, and at the end 
    of the path you'll find a Power Source in a crate and the warehouse key 
    under another pile of leaves. 
6.  Head east, pick up the item at the dead-end, then go north. (Don't worry 
    about the detour to the southeast corner of the map - it's blocked for 
    now.) You'll start to encounter enemies now. When you reach the river, 
    follow it east to get a HP Source.
7.  Cross the river and jump up the cliffs (there are steps at the east end) 
    to get the herbs.

~Katara~
8.  Meanwhile Katara is helping Li Sha. Minigame time!

~Aang and Sokka~
9.  Return to the infirmary.
10. This is your last chance to thoroughly explore the area before moving on.
    Return to the warehouse to give the guard the key and collect your rewards.
    Speak to another guard near the left warehouse to get a cabbage.
11. When you're ready, speak to General Fong - he's standing at the foot of 
    the stairs to the central tower. Time for your first boss battle!
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | BOSS BATTLE - GENERAL FONG                                             |
    |                                                                        |
    | Fong will be assisted by two soldiers who throw large stone discs.     |
    | Fong's own attacks include calling up a large ring of earth around     |
    | himself, which will knock you back, and slowing/trapping you with a    |
    | cloud of dust.                                                         |
    | Dodge the stone discs, defeat the soldiers first, and the fight isn't  |
    | too hard.                                                              |
    | Fong may drop a HP Source or gold coin when defeated.                  |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------


-------------------------
ENEMIES YOU'LL ENCOUNTER:
-------------------------
* Fire Nation soldiers
* Firebenders
* Yu Yan archers


--------
CABBAGES
--------
* Speak to a guard in the northwest part of the outer ring of the fortress.
* Smash a jar in the southeast lower area of the fortress.

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

-----------------------------
CHAPTER TWO: RETURN TO OMASHU
-----------------------------

With Fong defeated, we head on to Omashu. 

~Aang and Sokka~
1.  Travel through the sewers. 
2.  Find a Defence Source, just north of the sewer exit. Then head west, and 
    you'll run into a guy called Gito, who looks familiar though I'm not sure 
    where from.
3.  Stand on the grate and press A to re-enter the sewers.
4.  Make your way to the Hideout - the big square area at the north end.
5.  Search for Pentapi in the sewers - check the SEWERS MAP (separate FAQ) for 
    locations.
6.  Find supplies in the city above ground (leave the sewers via the Hideout) -
    they're in red crates with a fire symbol on them. Smash the crates to get 
    the supplies.
    The roofs marked in darker green on the in-game map are able to be walked 
    on - get up on them via the big crates (also marked).
       1. Follow the road along from the sewer entrance - you'll find the first
          crate quickly.
       2. Go to the southeast corner of the map - the second crate is at the
          end of the road leading north from here.
       3 & 4. Go over the rooftops to the southwest corner of the map - the 
          crates are in this area.
       5. Go north towards the palace (the huge building at the top of the map)
          - when you get to the point where you can't go any further, go left. 
          The last crate is at the end of this path.
    Also pick up a PWR Source in the small area to the west of the sewer exit.
7.  Now return to the hideout, and speak to the soldier (the man in the hat)
    standing in the middle of the room.

~Aang and Katara~
8.  Return to the palace. Look who's turned up? And having really horrible 
    exposition dialogue?
9.  Wonder where the canon timeline went.
10. Head around the palace, up the stairs, back around and through the big 
    doorway.
11. Climb the scaffolding in the centre of this area.
12. Once you jump off the scaffolding onto the upper floor, it's boss battle 
    time.

   --------------------------------------------------------------------------
  | BOSS BATTLE - OMASHU GOVERNOR                                            |  
  | His two attacks are a forwards fire blast, and a circling ring of fire   |
  | that lasts for a few seconds (often with a fire blast as well). He seems |
  | to be immune to knockback effects (eg. from Aang's Wind Gust attack) so  |
  | you can't stop him mid-attack - just try to keep out of the way. It's    |
  | better to not stand directly in front of him if you can help it.         |
  | The safest way to fight him is to use long range attacks. Use Lychees to |
  | refill your chi gauge, and keep attacking. Also keep a watch on your     |
  | partner's health, because they tend to run in and get caught in the      |
  | flame circle a lot.                                                      |
  | You can get a DEF Source as a reward from this.                          |
   --------------------------------------------------------------------------


-------------
SPECIAL ITEMS
-------------
* HP Source - far left side of the second level of the Palace


--------
CABBAGES
--------
None, since you cannot return here later.
Also, the Cabbage Merchant has probably decided to avoid Omashu...


---------------------------
ENEMIES YOU'LL ENCOUNTER...
---------------------------

IN THE SEWERS:
* Spider-scarabs

IN THE CITY:
* Fire Soldiers
* Firebenders

AT THE PALACE:
* Elite Firebenders
* Bombers


===============================================================================
===============================================================================

------------------------
CHAPTER THREE: THE SWAMP
------------------------

~Katara~
1.  Jump across the lilypads. If you miss and fall in the water, you'll be sent
    back to the starting point.
2.  Go into the village. Put out the fires.
3.  Leave by the northwest exit. Follow the coast to find a cabbage in a crate.
4.  From here, go back down, turn right when you can, then down, around the 
    corner, up, under the bridge, and make your way north.
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.  | MINIBOSS - Rough Rhinos                                                |
    |                                                                        |
    | Stage 1 of the battle is against the Yu Yan archer and the Bomber.     |
    | Keep running around so they can't aim at you very well. Attack and     |
    | move again.                                                            |
    | Stage 2 is against the leader. If he shoots fire upwards, a series of  |
    | fireballs will fall from the sky - so run and don't stop moving until  |
    | they've stopped.                                                       |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------

~Aang and Sokka~
6.  Make your way around the path to the lake. You'll be transported back to 
    the same map Katara started on, though at the opposite end.
7.  Head north. Smash the barrels of toxic waste to clean up the swamp... 
    um, what?
8.  Move onwards. Don't miss the Defence Source (head north from the barrel-
    breaking and turn right) or the cabbage (under a pile of leaves along the 
    left-hand side of the path) along the way.
9.  You'll encounter one of the swamp-dwellers and return to the village. One 
    of the ladies will send you to find mushrooms.

~Sokka and Katara~
**  First, some item-collecting. 
     ~ One of the villagers will give you a cabbage if you speak to him. 
     ~ There's another cabbage under a pile of leaves in the village.
     ~ Now you have Sokka, you can use his X attack to cut through the hanging 
       vines blocking some of the paths. Leave the village by the northeast 
       exit to get to the higher ground that formed the "walls" of the maze 
       Katara went through earlier. 
       There's an SP Source up near where you fought the Rough Rhinos, and 
       another crate with a Pastry (healing item) elsewhere in the maze.
11. Speak to the man standing by the boat on the west side of the village to 
    go to the northwest area.
12. Collect the mushrooms - there are two on the path and another two around 
    the clearing.
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. | MINIBOSS - The "Red Death"                                             |
    | Suddenly... Spider-scarabs, thousands of them!                         |
    | They're pretty harmless, and they all go down in one hit, so it's not  |
    | too much to worry about.                                               |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. Return to the village and speak to the lady again.

~Aang and Katara~
15. Take the boat from south of the village to the southeast area. 
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
16. | BOSS BATTLE - SWAMP MONSTER                                            |
    | He'll swing at you with his arms, and sometimes trap you with vines    |
    | rising from the lake. He'll turn to face you whenever you hit him, and |
    | usually follow up with a punch. (Usually right-handed, but he starts   |
    | using both arms toward the end of the fight.)                          |
    | He may drop a DEF Source.                                              |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------
SPECIAL ITEMS
-------------
* Defence Source - north and east of where you smashed the barrels

--------
CABBAGES
--------
* Follow the coast northwest from the village. (west side of maze area)
* Talk to one of the villagers, after the group is reunited.
* Under a pile of leaves in the village.
* Under a pile of leaves along the path on the eastern side of the map.

-------
ENEMIES
-------
* Fire Soldiers
* Firebenders
* Thyladillos
* Spider-scarabs

-----------
HIDDEN AREA
-----------
On the south shore of the island where the town is, you can see a trail of 
lilypads out across the water. (Start from inside the boat.) They're smaller 
than the main trail of lilypads so it's quite hard to land correctly. Try to 
start your jump quite close to the bottom edge of each lilypad.
For all your hard work, you get a DEF Source.
It's quite a large island and I don't think you ever visit it in the story, so
perhaps something was supposed to happen here and got removed. Or maybe it's a 
sidequest I never discovered.


===============================================================================
===============================================================================

------------------------------
CHAPTER FOUR: THE BLIND BANDIT
------------------------------

Moving onward to Gaoling...

~Aang and Katara~
1.  Find a cabbage in a crate the backstreets of the closest block of houses, 
    and get another by speaking to a man in the south of the market district 
    (southeast block).
2.  Head north.
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.  | MINIBOSS - MERCENARIES                                                 |
    | Enemies: Mercenary, Earth Soldiers x2                                  |
    | The soldiers are fairly weak, but the leader has some strong           |
    | earthbending abilities. Keep out of his line of fire.                  |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.  Find another cabbage in a crate in the middle of the park, just south of 
    the Academy.
5.  Go to the Academy and talk to Master Yu.
6.  MINIGAME - Rock Dodging
7.  Talk to the students.
8.  Go south, and then east out of town to the Arena. 
9.  Climb up the cliffs and get in through the back entrance. 
    Along the way, find a cabbage in a crate.
10. Meet up with Sokka again.

~Aang and Sokka~
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
11. | MINIBOSS - THE BOULDER                                                 |
    | Enemies: The Boulder, Earthbenders x2                                  |
    | Look out for rocks! As well as the Earthbenders throwing their rock    |
    | discs around, The Boulder also uses discs, but smashes them down       |
    | instead of throwing them. He'll also create two rocks and then bring   |
    | them together, trapping anyone between them. Lots of jumping and       |
    | dodging is required!                                                   |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
12. | MINIBOSS - TOPH                                                        |
    | Her two attacks are throwing a single rock or making a line of rock    |
    | spikes shoot from the ground. Either way, the best strategy is to run  |
    | round and dodge until she uses an attack, then get behind her and      |
    | counterattack.                                                         |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. Leave the arena; go back in through the front entrance for a HP Source.
14. Head for Beifong Manor, in the northwest corner of the city (back past the 
    Academy). Don't forget to stop by the rest-house!
15. Go around to the side wall. Get captured. Rescue random Earth Nation 
    engineer guy.
16. Go into the side room and smash crates to find the plan he told you about, 
    and also an SP Source (and some annoyingly hard-to-kill spider-scarabs).
17. Talk to the engineer again.
18. MINIBOSS - Mercenary again. No backup soldiers though.
19. Back to Beifong Manor again (no forced detours this time!), over the wall 
    and through the garden. There's a HP Source at the south end of the path 
    along the east wall. Follow the wall along to the houses, and find one of 
    the dice for the dice minigame. 
20. Head to the courtyard to find Toph. 
    Captured again! This is getting frustrating. >_<

~Sokka~
21. Go to the Arena. Katara will join you along the way.

~Sokka and Toph~
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
22. BOSS - Xin Fu
    (No information, sorry.)
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------
CABBAGES
--------
* In a a crate in the backstreets of southwest block of houses.
* Speak to a man in the south of the market district (southeast block of town).
* In a crate in the middle of the park (just south of the Earthbending Academy)
* In a crate on the cliffs outside the Arena.

-------------------------------------------------
MINIGAME - "DON'T ROLL A RED OR YELLOW" DICE GAME
-------------------------------------------------
First, you need to find the dice. One is in a crate just outside the entrance 
to the Earthbending Academy, on a raised grey area to the right. The other is 
at Beifong Manor, along the right-hand wall.
To play, all you can do is tap the screen to roll the dice on your turn. It 
runs on pure chance, so it gets pretty tedious pretty quickly. 

-----------
OTHER NOTES
-----------
You can break the large rocks blocking the path to the Arena back entrance 
using Toph's second bending ability. There are some jars blocked in there, but
nothing in them.

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

-------------------------
CHAPTER FIVE: THE LIBRARY
-------------------------

~Aang and Toph~
1.  MINIGAME - Earthbending Practice
2.  Fight the Sandbenders.
3.  Explore the town.
    * If you try to talk to the Sandbenders, they will fight you.
    * Find a cabbage in a jar in the rest area, another in a crate outside it 
      (to the left), and a third by talking to one of the townspeople. 
4.  When you're ready to leave, talk to Appa.
5.  MINIGAME - Attack of the Buzzard Wasps
6.  Enter the library.
7.  Wan Shi Tong demands that you contribute something to the library. He seems
    more impressed if you select the options "First Edition", "Offer", and 
    "Wanted Poster 2", but I don't know if it actually affects anything...

~Sokka~
8.  Find a HP Source at the north end of the outer ring, and a parchment scrap
    at the east end.
9.  Make your way to the Planetarium in the centre.
10. Set the planetarium dial to the date written on the parchment - "9th day 
    of the 7th month, in the Year of the Dragon" (it was written in English if 
    you checked it in the Key Items menu, but the parchment and Planetarium 
    both use Chinese, so you just match the symbols). The number 7 looks like 
    a "t", and 9 is a bit like a "h". If you get it wrong twice, the game will 
    highlight the symbols on the parchment for you.

~Aang and Katara~
11. MINIGAME - Book Finder
12. MINIGAME - Escape from the Library

~Zuko and Iroh~
1.  Get excited because we finally get to play as Zuko and Iroh!
2.  MINIGAME - Zuko's Escape
3.  Get disappointed when you realise this is the entire extent of their 
    playablility.



MINIGAME - EARTHBENDING PRACTICE
It's rock tennis time! Tap the boulder as it comes into the touch screen. 
(Best minigame in the whole game, in my opinion.)

MINIGAME - ATTACK OF THE BUZZARD WASPS


MINIGAME - BOOK FINDER
Characters: Aang and Katara
Availability: Storyline event in Wan Shi Tong's library, repeatable in Chapter
7 at Ba Sing Se library.
Press the A/B/X/Y buttons to find the book that matches the one in the speech 
bubble. The first few rounds it's just "odd one out" but once you get more than 
two colours of book at a time, you'll have to pay attention.

MINIGAME - ESCAPE FROM THE LIBRARY
(sorry, no information on this. I remember it being tricky.)

MINIGAME - ZUKO'S ESCAPE
Characters: Zuko and Iroh
Availablility: Storyline event, non-repeatable.
Dodge trees, rocks and dynamite as you escape from the Rough Rhinos.
Press B to jump. Small rocks, cacti and dynamite can be jumped over; large 
rocks and trees cannot.
Press Y to burn trees and cacti.
It's easiest to burn through all the plants, and jump or dodge everything else.

CABBAGES
--------
* In a crate in the item shop.
* In a jar in the rest area.
* In a crate outside the rest area.
* Talk to a man in the town.

CHAPTER SIX: CITY OF WALLS AND SECRETS
--------------------------------------

A NOTE ON LOCATIONS:
Ba Sing Se is divided into different locations, from north to south:
~ The Palace
~ Upper Ring (orange roofs) - the rest house is here
~ Middle Ring (green roofs) - the library is here
~ Lower Ring (brown roofs) - market district


~Sokka and Toph~
1.  Go to the Palace, and enter through the side door.
2.  Fight your way through the Palace to the throne room. There's a Power 
    Source in a jar in the southwest room.

~Katara~
3.  Explore Ba Sing Se as you make your way to the Lower Ring.
    ~ Upper Ring - Find a cabbage in a crate in the northeast corner.
    ~ Middle Ring - Find a HP Source in a crate near the river (in a dead-end 
      across a bridge) and a cabbage in a jar, just south of the library. 
    ~ One of the townspeople will also give you a cabbage.
    ~ Lower Ring - find the Cabbage Man in the marketplace! Trade in the
      cabbages you've found so far (you should have 17) for HP-boosting 
      High-Quality Cabbages.
4.  Talk to a man on the road along the south border of the city. 
5.  Meet Jet, and go north through the backstreets to the warehouse.
6.  Fight the Dai Li.

~Aang~
6.  Take the southern road west out of town. Find a cabbage under some leaves 
    just north of the entrance to the underground lair.
7.  Make your way through the underground. There's a HP Source in a crate in 
    the first big room on your right, surrounded by pillars, and in the room 
    straight ahead from the entrance there's also a Power Source in a crate 
    mostly hidden behind a pillar.

CHAPTER SEVEN: THE DRILL
Part A: Backtracking
------------------------

First, a moment's silence to mourn the passing of the canon timeline.

Now, you have the opportunity to revisit the areas from the previous six 
chapters (except Omashu) to find any items you may have missed, or to replay 
minigames. Speak to Appa to fly to a location.

You can also now switch team members at any time by going to the rest area. 
Speak to a character standing there and they will replace the character in your 
active party that you are currently *not* controlling.
For general exploring, Toph and Sokka are the best team, as between them they 
can clear all types of obstacles.

Things to do:

THE FORTRESS:
~ Take Toph with you to find a cabbage in the southeast corner of the map, in 
  an area blocked off by boulders. Use her X attack to break them.
~ With Katara in your party, go to the infirmary to replay the Help Li Sha 
  minigame and earn food.

THE SWAMP:
~ Continue trying to jump across the lilypads, if you gave up earlier. >_<

GAOLING:
~ Replay the dice game.
~ With Aang, go to the Earthbending Academy to replay the Rock Dodging minigame
  and earn EXP.
~ With Toph, go to the cliffs outside the Arena and use her second earthbending
  ability (rock spikes) to smash some of the huge boulders and get two HP 
  Sources and a Power Source.

MISTY PALMS OASIS:
~ With Aang and Toph, walk up to the rock near Appa to replay the Earthbending 
  Training minigame and earn EXP. 
~ With Sokka, cut open the cactus in front of Appa to get a HP Source.
~ Go to the house in the southwest of the village, and speak to the man inside
  to replay the Attack of the Buzzard Wasps minigame and earn money.

BA SING SE:
~ With Aang and Katara, go to the Library to replay the Book Finding minigame 
  and earn money.
~ Trade your cabbages.

When you've had enough, stock up on food and Red Potions. All set? Now, it's 
onwards to the final battle!

===============================================================================

-------------------------
CHAPTER 7: THE DRILL
Part B: The Drill Machine
-------------------------

~Sokka~
1.  Find and smash the five red valves. If you're getting lost, just pick a 
    wall to follow and you'll eventually come across all of them.
2.  Return to the entrance and go outside.

~Sokka and Toph~
3.  Fight the Fire Nation soldiers. Try to take out the benders first.
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.  | BOSS: MAI AND TY LEE                                                   |
    | Focus on Ty Lee first, as her stun attack is very annoying. Try to not |
    | let her get close to you, as she can only attack if you're directly in |
    | front of her. Use a Red Potion to recover if she knocks you out. Once  |
    | she's gone, Mai is easy to defeat.                                     |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------

~Aang and Katara~
5.  MINIGAME: Destroy the Braces
    Hit the indicated buttons on the D-pad and A/B/X/Y buttons. It speeds up 
    as you go along and is quite annoying.


~Aang~
*   Use up any remaining stat-boosting items. You'll need them.
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
6.  | FINAL BOSS: AZULA                                                      |
    | She's deadly quick and can fire a long string of fireballs at you. She |
    | also has a spinning kick, and if you see her charging a fireball in    | 
    | her hands, STAY AWAY. It will explode into a large area around her and |
    | send you flying. The best time to attack her is while she's throwing   |
    | her normal fireballs - dodge around and attack her from behind. You    | 
    | might be able to get a long-range bending attack in while she does her |
    | exploding fireball trick, too (but make sure you're at a safe          |
    | distance). Keep an eye on your health, and heal constantly. It takes a |
    | while, but eventually you'll get to the end.                           |
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Congratulations, you have beaten "The Burning Earth".

===============================================================================
===============================================================================

-------
ENEMIES
-------

BOMBERS
Black-hooded soldiers. They throw sticks of dynamite. 

DAI LI
Their thrown projectiles will knock you out briefly. If you see a cloud of 
dust around you, move away, or you'll be trapped by earth spikes.

EARTH SOLDIERS
Soldiers armed with spears.

EARTHBENDERS
Unarmed Earth Soldiers. They attack with huge discs of rock.

ELITE FIREBENDERS
Quicker with their firebending, and covering a longer range than the normal 
Firebenders. (They're based on Azula's guards from Episode 2.01)

FIRE SOLDIERS
Low-ranked soldiers. Some have swords, some have spears. 
Both are easy to defeat.

FIREBENDERS
These masked soldiers attack with a series of fire attacks - look out for 
their finishing kick, which has quite a long range. Try to stop them 
mid-combo with a long-ranged attack of your own.

SPIDER-SCARABS
They attack in groups. You don't get anything for defeating them.

THYLADILLOS (Thylacine-Armadillos - my guess at what they are, anyway)
Grey armoured wolf-like creatures. They're quick and they can leap at you.


===============================================================================
===============================================================================
