Dumps like this one are some of the few remnants of the once great northern empire. Today, they are avoided, as the defective creations seem to have outlived their creators.
Striking the boss will engage the "Soul Shield Protocol," giving all monsters No Experience and tying them to the boss's mechanics.
Ancient Scrapyard is the first Extreme Edition dungeon players will unlock and play, so it isn't too difficult. The only real danger is the boss, most of the monsters aren't anything crazy, and the only one with a nasty surprise has such low stats that you will quickly shed fear and see them as ideal bonus experience targets. Some useful tips are to find additional sources of experience (you want ample popcorn alive for the boss, to cut it's health down) like Amulet of Yendor, , and IMAWAL, and to NOT waste the big guns opening on the boss. Ideally, you will want to hit him with a fireball to trigger the fight, use remaining blackspace to beat down the last of the high-level monsters and popcorn, and THEN start popping Whupaz, Reflex Potion, and other such spikes after getting his HP as low as possible.
The quests don't change the strategy up a lot. Magicians don't really have many strengths or weaknesses here (though they COULD theoretically take a pure fireball approach to the boss, this will not work in the Hoarder-vicious quest) compared to other classes and vicious token strategy doesn't differ any, it's just tighter. Note that even though the Vicious token doubles the Forgotten One's max HP, it also doubles the max HP of all the other enemies meaning they will take off twice as much of his HP. This means that careful use of his mechanic is even more important than usual - you might want to prep an Amulet of Yandor and play as an Asssassin so you can preserve as much popcorn as possible.
The Forgotten One is a rather deadly boss despite only being "normal" difficulty. As soon as he takes damage, he activates "Soul Shield," makes all monsters on the map No Experience. Killing a monster will lower his health by that monster's max HP. The key is to leave enough monsters to remove a significant chunk of the Forgotten One's massive health bar.
