|Magmoor Caverns - First Visit|
Magmoors prefer extreme heat zones, and are susceptible to frigid attack forms. Sightless, they navigate the lava currents using their sonar receptors. Magmoors have a keen sense of smell, enabling them to pinpoint targets with startling accuracy.
Those ball-eating enemies... just noticed it's really easy to kill them by getting them to eat bombs.
So I guess this Tallon elevator is how the pirates got to this area... because of course they can't get here from the Chozo elevator, only Samus and small creatures can go through that path... omg it makes so much sense... that's why that early West Magmoor Caverns area was devoid of almost any threatening enemies... This game design is genius holy shit...
Oh and actually, I COULD have easily come through this way, from the Tallon elevator, if I wanted to. I mostly just would've missed the Triclops pit.
Back to Monitor Station... these turrets are a lot less threatening when you have lots of space to move around. Although they're still kinda tough. These ones take 2 missiles to take down, and when you're fighting like 3 of them at once it can actually get...
Got back to where I was... There's some scans on the higher level of the Monitor Station structure.
Local crystal formations possess low Phazon residue. They do have high value to the monks of Grondheim, however. Recommend processing of crystal for that market once Phazon operations cease.Wow, I'm sure this is referring to the red crystal deposits I saw earlier... but who are these monks of Grondheim people and why do they value these crystals? I am genuinely interested in this. This only makes me want to keep scanning absolutely everything I can.
LOL there's even lore about the pistons I was using as platforms earlier... they discover that this geothermal power from the magma is better than their previous power source, and they shut down their previous energy plant at Central Dynamo... Come to think of it, I did come to a room named "Dynamo" in Chozo Ruins...
Geothermal power routing to this station is complete. Unstable magma flow is a concern. Remove tower from geothermal grid if fluctuations exceed safety levels.
Oh good, so they ARE somewhat vulnerable to the elements. This is good knowledge for Samus to have.
This is really amazing playing a 101% scan playthrough while high (non-logbook scans included)... I really feel like I'm infiltrating and investigating the space pirates' base...
