cleared upper opinwood in no time and found a necklace that adds 1 level to rogue (awesome). now Ak'shel is 5 in rogue (level 4 mage and 3 in warrior). Baccata is 4 to all i think. Urbish Mines are a pain, and there's no room in my inventory, i already threw away some stuff and i sold alot to the Gorkha too... (over 1200 silver crowns on me right now)
tried to do it last time where i remembered but it didnt happen. i probably had to do something before that (but i forgot what it was). i do remember vividly blowing him up and Kelsrick being pissed at me.
forgot to buy the fire wand by the way
will probably get it for the next part of the game. really curious to see if the skull with the spell works on the ghosts of the tower in case someone went all magic and didnt do much of a fighter for any character.
Are you referring to the green skull? What you MUST do in the top of the White Tower is use the Vaelen's Cube. I mean, you'll use the first one to destroy Scotia's barrier. But after you get your next one from the Greater Orcs, do NOT destroy the second barrier with it until you have defeated the White Tower. Without the Vaelen's Cube to fight the wraiths at the top, that part of the game is nearly impossible.
So as soon as you get that cube, head back to the white tower but whatever you do, don't go to Yvel until you've cleared the wraiths out of the third tower level.
I found the rock finally that leaks oil into the chieftan's hut. That was a pure delight watching that thing blow up and his blazing body get thrown into the air like that. I can't believe after all these year's I'd just seen that now.
so i'll have to reload cause i used the cube
great orcs i can kill surprisingly easy (up to 2 at a time) even without relying much on magic.
i guess i was carried away with Kikoskias way of not wanting to go to the tower like.. ever
from what i saw i can be sure i hate the place and i've never been there before
The place really isn't that bad. Relatively small compared to other places in the game. Another thing about that top level is use your emerald blades to fight the wraiths too. Though you'll mostly use your Vaelan's Cube, you can get fighter experience if you fight them with the blades when you feel comfortable to do so.
I just use my cube as my actual cursor so I can activate Ak'Shel's level 4 heal at a moments notice. When you kill the wraiths with it, the cube turns white. When it is white, right click it again on Ak'Shel to restore his magic. This is what makes it so incredible. You have unlimited killing power against the wraiths and then when the cube is white you can use it to restore your magic needed for healing your party.
reloaded so i could keep the cube and got to the White Tower... the puzzles are a pain... a real pain but at least the women there die easily. Takes a bit of exploring there, and i certainly hope the ghosts will die off when i get to that level and wont respawn.
On the third level makes sure you fall down that pit at least once so you can fight the minotaur and get his awesome maul. Also, once you get the crucible from the basement, it's worth going back to that door on the third level as he'll let you in if you have the crucible in your inventory.
Just finished the Dracoid Ruins last night. My fighter and mage skill are now at 30 after repeatedly attacking the Belial statue. And now for a picture of Melek.
i'm defending Yvel now... going to be a huge battle! Scotia was such a pain.. had to use my wand of death (once) to get rid of her. i did get both the maul and some stuff from the chest in level 3. thanks for mentioning the cube, i dont think i would have made it without it... crossbow valkyrie hits the wraiths too, though, noticed that before. i think i finished the second game around levels 27/26 or so.
Yeah even regular weapons can do damage against the wraiths, just not that much. But that cube is like the coolest item in the game. Sucks you had to use that Death Wand on Scotia. I hate fighting any monster that can simultaneously disarm everyone in the party.
Now that you'll be headed for the Catwalk Caverns soon you're almost caught up with me. Remember to push those electric monsters back in those corners to trap them so you can replicate an inventory item. And if you kill too many you won't have enough for each alcove. So save a game before you even attempt it.
Well there's a part in the upper center of the map. There is this alcove with lights and a sign that says "activate and replicate". If you push those electrical guys into the three corners then you charge the alcove where you can replicate any item from your inventory. I like replicating the thunder maul. Or you could do your death wand or crossbow valkryie. But you don't have to do it at all either. It's totally up to you. It is kind of a pain. You gotta herd those little pixels into the hallway where you push them back using that gauntlet thing. So with the level 1 hand of fate spell you keep pushing them back till they get locked in those corners.
For real? Well no I don't think it can be recharged. Wand of Death wouldn't be the beset thing to replicate anyway. Sometimes instead of replicating the thunder maul though I would just replicate the best armor among the party. Plus you'll get some guardian orbs too which do plenty of damage so wands at that point are as important.
