I have to say I was very excited when I first laid eyes on Byzola for the fist time in Hate. The creature model they decided to use for her has always been my favorite in the entire game and I always thought, what a shame such a cool boss mob was buried in the depths of Fallen Gate. That being said this is among my favorite encounters to date right up there with Nexona. I mean any fight where your healers get to kick some booty is all right by me.
