One of our earliest questions for the game Magicka was: How do I hit the worm's weak point for massive damage at the end of Chapter 2?
Today, we received a similar one: Beating the snake boss in Magicka.
Pardoning the whole part where they decided to pick completely different animals to describe this incarnation of Norse Mythology's World Serpent, we have two very similar questions. Not exact duplicates - LessPop's earlier question is very explicitly about hitting the head for memetic effect, while Red's question is more general towards tactics.
What I'm unsure of is whether the questions need to be split up or should they somehow be combined - do we get more value in keeping them as separate? Remember that the reason we have duplicates and merging is to avoid fragmentation of answers. This scenario works in both ways: all of the answers to the weakpoint question are fully relevant to the boss strategy question, and people who want to explicitly find weakpoint information may need to view the boss strategy question to catch any extras listed there.
Sometimes, great exclusive answers can validate a question and keep it from being closed as a duplicate. In thinking about it long enough, I'm not sure this particular case calls for it.
What do people think about this? Are they valuable enough separate that they should be kept as such? Or, like the titular being, shall we wrap around and recombine at the tail end in one closed loop? Do note that like the last inquiry I made, I'm leaning towards a reverse-direction of merging elder into younger. That seems more appropriate.
