Avernum 2: Crystal Souls - How to beat the Test of Speed

Recommended Posts

There's a trivial way to beat the Test of Speed that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere else:  do the entire thing in combat mode.  The fire will only move forward once for every 8-16 steps you take, rather than once for every 1-2.

 

Everywhere else recommends having someone with boots/potions of speed, who can take out multiple enemies per turn and has piercing crystal, but I was able to grab all the goodies and beat it easily with none of those things.

Yeah, it's not especially hard even without speed boosters, but if someone is having trouble, those are the obvious suggestions to make.  Note that they won't do anything at all if you're not in combat mode already, so I think people just assume you use combat mode for it.
