  1. I am desperate to find how to get past those laser type beams in the concealed cavern and finally destroy the barrier between the troglos and giants, so they can go back to fighting each other. Is this a game-breaker if I can't get through it? Help!!!
  2. The guilty party responsible for creating the plagues . . . is it always the same, or are some endings different? Just curious. . .
  3. I'm having zero luck with the mirrors and lasers (or whatever they are) keeping me from destroying the barrier to finish the troglo and giants quest. I have the hintbook but make little sense of what the directions mean to do. I need a true spoiler, I'm afraid. Anyone?
  4. Where can I get level 3 move mountains? The hintbook says it's in Fort Emergence, but I don't find it there. Thanks!
  5. TriRodent, you hit my mistake square on the head. . . I was focusing on the lasers in the outer area, rather than in the upper one. Jeff was gracious enough to give me enough tips to get it done. Thanks so much!
  6. I think I've been able to get the mirror from the far south wall into position to receive a beam and send it to the portal. But no matter how many times and ways I push that mirror that's in the front the beam never goes anywhere near the mirror I just moved into position. UPDATE: I take back what I said about getting a mirror into position to receive a beam. Doesn't seem to be possible. . . the walls just get in the way
  7. Is it possible to finish/win the game without doing this puzzle? Your hints make no sense when I look at the puzzle, and the ones in the hintbook are even worse. I didn't expect A3 to be such a puzzle-focused game. In my opinion, winning the game shouldn't hinge on one or two obscure and vague puzzles.
  8. Is the round crystal type object in the same room as the mirror? I'm still struggling
  9. Spidweb, I did as you suggested and sometimes the quest appeared in my list and sometimes it did not. I was able to complete the one that "stuck." I've taken very few of those jobs, but maybe I took one that I didn't complete and I'm on the bad list now. Oh well. . . I'll know better next play through.
  10. I have picked up several of the courier quests that need to be completed in a certain time frame. I have gone directly to the person with the required object, and don't get a response or reaction from them. So I go back to where I got it, pick it up once more, go directly to the person, and still nothing. Is anyone else having this problem? It's happened several times to me.
  11. When this has happened, it does not appear on my quest list. I always play games with the sound off, so can't speak to the trumpet, but have definitely not seen the black box. . . that's what I was watching for.
  12. I have killed Guhkbar but can't find Captain Maxine who gave me the quest (A3). Also, I killed the head unicorn in the maze before getting the quest, and now I don't see a special horn with curvy lines on it. Have I botched this quest?
  13. So it looks like the goal is to line up the round pieces and walk on them? One reason I bought the hintbook is to avoid 30+ minutes on a single puzzle. . . I'm very frustrated. Never mind. . . I just powered through it without completing the puzzle. . .
  14. I'm trying to get through the underground portion of the trogoldyte castle to find Elhioc. I bought the hint book, but the directions in it for the controls don't seem to work. I've tried on my own without success. Is this a bug in the game or just poor directions in the hintbook?
  15. Well. . . that's exactly my point. The journal doesn't say where I got the quest. I've gone back through all the cities in the area and looked at every single person without finding her. So my more specific question is. . . what city is she in?
  16. Getting into gated areas

    I've finished clearing out underneath the meeting hall at Four Corners, including killing Daum. There are still two dungeon-gated areas in the main building part. How do I get into those areas?
  17. Getting into gated areas

    Are the levers in the area that's the training part? I've been all through rooms that look like classrooms before you get to the cavern part and haven't found any levers. Guess I need another hint, please!
  18. I began the search for the mold for the witch/crone, went on to something else, and now can't find the witch. Any help?
  19. Ok, thanks. I'm doing a 3rd or so playthrough, and it's been several years since the last one. I can see that I've done lots of things out of sequence, causing a few quests to be unfinishable. Oh, well, I'm just passing time anyway.
  20. So I found the orb in the gremlin's cave and destroyed it before getting the quest from Scimitar to do so. Now I don't get a conversation option to tell them I destroyed it. Does this mean no Scimitar for me?
  21. How do I get dispel barrier level 2? I found the list of places to get level 3 spells, but would really like to get this one.
