The Boor and the gigantic tree [Possible spoilers]

I believe I had the same issue in the iOS version the first time I played before I knew what I was doing.
I got the dark moon trigon first. And without revealing to many spoilers, this affected the giant tree at the center of the world. Now that the dark moon has waned the grizzled boor has appeared. I chased him to the tree, but... Then he disappeared. So... is that it? I just missed out? Or is this a bug?

Oh crud. Guess I'll wait till we're out of dark moon tomorrow and restart.

So it seems like if you start the game during a dark moon, you have the possibility to lock yourself out of any game advancement for 2 weeks unless you "cheat." Possibly not the best gameplay choice the devs could have made, as frustration can make people rage.

Yup, agreed. Only read if you already finished it:
Spoiler:
I think that when the bear is in the tree and you do the trigon it should kill it, and when the tree is split it should just go in anyway. The bear should always show up. This would totally fix this.

Thanks for putting whatever that was in a spoiler. I presume it's an explanation for why that particular design choice was made. Although I'm curious to know, I haven't finished the game yet so I'll wait.

This probably isn't relevent but I bought this game during a Dark moon and was in your situation.

I ended up cheating to get to play during the Bright moon and completed the game, but got the #honest achievment instead of the cheater one, not sure how that happened...

You probably didn't see the bear, did you?

Spoiler:
After getting the 3rd trigon, I met the Grizzled Boor on one of the areas on the right side of the lake and he led me to the door in the meadow and let me in. I never got to fight him though.

Yeah, I remember running into this issue with the Boor not appearing after the tree is split on the iOS version. I sent an email to them about this sometime back. I got no response. =\

If it's intentional, it's pretty unbalanced. Why should this occur with the events of the new moon and not the full moon? Hm.

Oh, and...

Spoiler:
...The Boor appears at the concert regardless of what happens to him in the game. I once killed him to get the 'Grizzled Boor' achievement, but he was there on cue to guide me to the concert after getting the third Trigon.

I guess if there's #noboor I should go for the #cheater achievement this time around. Maybe after the half moon.

Hey folks,

This is how the game is intended to be. There are parts of the game that, when played out of moon phase or out of order, result in other parts being missable.

If you split the tree & fight the dark moon trigon first, you can't fight the boor.

That's a really poor design choice.
