Friend of the Gnomes

'The Gnome Eater' completed   

Talk to Kaan (the Gnomes’ chieftain) on The Isle of Thieves, and he’ll give you this quest. This boss fight is very difficult (I found it to be by far the hardest in the game), especially since the creature will eat any weapons you have equipped except the Titan Spear. The best way of doing it, then, is to climb up to the back of a tiny little ledge on the right side of the clearing (it has what appears to be the head of a fallen statue lying upside down in front of it), and keep throwing the spear at the monster. If you’re positioned correctly near the back, it shouldn’t be able to hit you, even if it climbs up the wall itself. The parrot is also apparently useful here, though I didn’t use it myself.

This is a quest on the Isle of Thieves. The Leader of the Gnomes, Kaan, wants you to kill a monster that is eating gnomes.

Easiest done with a few bombs. The monster will take the weapons from your hand and swallow them, good news if you have a few bombs. Equip the bomb and just let the monster eat it, no need the drop or throw them, it will do all the work for you. After two it should be over.

If you tried with weapons before and lost them,no worries, you can recover any lost items from the beast when it is dead.

Great find. I wish I knew this before I met and finally killed it. Fortunately I had extra spears, sunken ones axes, my trusty pistol and lots of grog! Looking forward to playthrough #2 to use this techique.
