|Phazon Mines - Lower Level A continued|
Elite Pirate Upsilon's propensity for Phazon has enabled our research team to infuse it far beyond our safety restrictions, and the results have been extremely encouraging. Its constant Phazon diet has increased its mass exponentially, but it has retained all mental faculties and shows dexterity with all Elite weaponry, including Plasma incendiary launchers and the chameleon manta issued for cloaking purposes. Elite Pirate Upsilon exhibits miraculous healing abilities; when injured, it seeks out Phazon deposits and coats itself in the substance, which instantly mends the creature's wounds. The subject, which we are code-naming Omega Pirate based on these developments, shows potential to be a new standard for our armies. Our only concern at this point is its potential overdependence on Phazon.
It seems to be a dead end for now... I can't cross this phazon pit. I don't see a grapple beam point either... I guess this'll probably be one of the things I need the X-Ray visor to see the path? This quarantine area is much less mechanical... seems to be just a cave with phazon fungi growing everywhere for the Metroids to feed off of.
Now I can go through that other door in Omega Research... but had to fight another Elite Pirate before that. These enemies aren't hard at all, they're just like the Sheegoth enemies in Phendrana, they just take a while, and like 20 missiles. Finally got to the Map Station.
The Metroid Quarantine leads to another elevator going down to the 2nd underground level of Phazon Mines... but I also see there's another path a bit further back that also goes down to that lower level.That's obviously where I'm supposed to go next. Besides that, I do see at least one other room in the upper level of Phazon Mines I can probably access now, but I don't wanna go that far back until I can't progress to new stuff anymore.
... er, actually, I see from this missables list that there's a missable enemy "Phazon Elite" in the Elite Research area of the upper level after I get the power bombs... I'd better go do that now just in case.
Phazon Mines after Power Bombs
Now to go down through to the 2nd lower level of Phazon Mines...
Wow, this bottom section looks like quite a long series of rooms... but seems I can't do the rest of Phazon Mines just yet... The door at the bottom of the phazon pit is red... but there's a platforming path leading to the white door at the top... This leads to Magmoor Caverns South.
