Svar Library (Nathalie's knowledge quest)

9 posts in this topic

OK, I'm in the Svar spiral library but I can't get past the constantly spamming shades. I can beat them but they will not let me rest and recharge so eventually I get overwhelmed. I'm a tinkermage, so I can do charged weapons and turrets. I've got Nathalie and my blademaster with me.

 

I see the Librarian's shade, but there's a down staircase just across from her. I'm trying to get to that but the never-ending shades keep stopping me. Is getting down that staircase what I need to do, or do I have to kill the LIbrarian's shade? If so, how?

 

Any suggestions? Thanks!

"Killing" the Librarian Shade stops the spamming shades. It helps if you can use the teleport scarab to jump past, but area attacks from Nathalie, scarabs, and items will do to. The idea is kill enough shades to keep them from interfering with getting through.

 

I don't know if you can do it now, but during beta testing I just ran for the stairs, but then you miss some loot that the Librarian drops.

Yeah, I was able to jump toward the staircase (sacrificing Nathalie who can't jump) and almost got there on my last try. Maybe I can jump to the Librarian and get her if I try. It was the spamming shades that got me. I could get Nathalie back with a resurrection scroll.

 

I'm thinking that speed scrolls might help me get there, so I'll try that today. It's all down to getting by the shades and not stopping, isn't it? I think I can I think I can I think I can!

 

Thanks Randomizer! I'll let ya know what happens!

I believe you are supposed to run for the stairs. The Shade continues summoning until it's dead or you go down the stairs.

Great! Thanks again! Couldn't play today because of LIfe, but ought to be able to get to it tomorrow. But presumably we're going to have to kill the Librarian shade at some point. Why not do it now?

she will "reborn" to last battle in library so killing her now is waste of time, energy, health/etc potions, etc.

Ah yes. I see what you mean. So I got down there rather easily, have cleaned out all the spiders and now have the task of facing her. Tough fight. I'll try it tomorrow.

 

Thanks again!

Ha ha! Done! Not really all that tough, although I did have to use up two resurrection scrolls for Khalida. However, just stand back near the gate out of range of the turrets, yet just barely within range of the first two turrets, and it's quite doable.

 

Nice loot too!

 

Thanks again!
