  1. I'm playing The Conqueror for the first time in ages, and I'm stuck trying to complete Istara's quest to "Go to High Elhovo, taunt the Council, and expose their weakness." When I speak to Watcher Eibhlin, here are the choices and responses: 1. "I want to know more about the Watchers." 2. "Let's negotiate." 3. "I want to talk about the Trench Towns again." The first leads to questions about elixir and responsibilities. Saying "You don't seem to do much to rule your land" makes them angry and the conversation ends, but this doesn't provoke Peadar to attack. "Let's negotiate" leads to the demand to kneel, which is a non-starter. Neither "You are arrogant" nor "I simply can't do that" result in provocation. Bringing up the Trench Towns again ends to conversation. I think I either messed something up earlier, or there's some other step I've overlooked. Can anyone help me with this?
  2. Well, I've done this without trouble four times, but this time I can't get the ghosts to appear, and the gate to the south doesn't open. I'm just wandering up and down this hall waiting for the enemy to appear, but nothing happens. I have the quest from Captain Azucena as well as the one from Erud Dastan in Etzalam. Is there some step that I'm missing?
  3. So sorry, I thought I had responded to this! Thank you for this!
  4. The Askama Mines are a pain in the butt, because once you've managed to kill of the four big slimes that are causing the problems, you still have to get past the eternaslimes and fight the slimemaster. The slimemaster is weak, but getting past the eternslimes requires spamming the teleport spell or just slashing and healing, slashing and healing, so by the time you getr to the slimemaster, you're usually down a character or out of energy (at least if you're trying this at level 10 or below). I'm currently trying it on level 10 in normal mode, and it's brutal. But I realized you can do it in two parts. First time, instead of fighting all 4 big slimes, just kill the first, and then spam the teleport spell to get past the other three and the eternaslimes, conserving energy just enough to get two or three characters past the eternslimes to the slimemaster. Then kill the slimemaster, looted the treasure chest, and leave the area. Go back to a fort, recharge, and return to the Askama Mines. Naturally, everything had respawned, including the slimemaster. But what's different now is that you can ignore the eternaslimes and slimemaster completely, and use all you energy killing the four big slimes. If you have enough characters/energy left after (not likely), you can easily kill the slimemaster and eternslimes just by opening the door that was locked the first time you entered the dungeon. It's unlocked now, so you just open it and there's the slimemaster on the other side, defenseless. After you take him out, the eternaslimes are also easy. Just an idea! Maybe not a great one! LOL The more logical alternative is to just wait till you're a higher level to do this dungeon.
  5. It worked! I got my support character (who can make a skeleton) up to 52% speed bonus, my magic user up to 46%, and my two fighters up to 25% and 5%. I lost the support character because of an error (I accidentally walked her too close to the enemy), but even so it was an easy fight. Thank you so much for this advice!
  6. Thank you! So speed is the key. I might be able to get one or two of my characters up to that speed. I'll give it a try.
  7. I'm playing on normal mode after playing casual twice. I tried to take on the eye beasts in the underworld and laughed out loud when 3 of my characters were wiped out in the first wave of attacks. I am already at level 20, so I can't change much or add new abilities. (I completely forgot about Bonds of the Fae, and now it's too late to get it now because I used up all my crafting materials and there are few sources of others left in the game at this point.) Anyway, even using Bonds of the Fae on a skeleton or construct, how does one win this fight if three members are wiped out before one even gets a turn?
  8. I did it! It took a couple of tries, but I managed to avoid just one of the Broodmothers, and I guess that made the difference. One of my characters even had a bit of energy left over when the Naga finally died. That extra bit of quicksilver allowed me to upgrade my last un-upgraded fort. Thank you for the advice!
  9. Thank you! To get energy potions, I need to dedicate a bunch of forts (I think at least 4?) to knowledge. I opted to maximum Ro reputation points by dedicating 4 forts to the Ro. So energy potions are not an option for me. But maybe the reputation points I gain from the Erudico Crafting pedestal are not worth it? I have tended to end up with Ro rep to spare, even after supporting women's rights in the Low Dhaga. Of the other advice, the one I haven't tried is trying to sneak down one side without being detected by the broodmothers on the other side. Everything else I have done, including using all the scrolls of calling and brute potions I have. Since there's nothing to be done about the energy potions at this point in the game, I will try again sneaking down one side, and if the doesn't work I'll just abandon this quest, though I hate to leave the Coglin girl in such distress.😢
  10. Does anyone have any advice for the Ice Naga battle in Pit of the Ice Wyrm? Those endless waves of Broodmothers and their surprisingly deadly Ice Serpents are (literally) killing me. Even at level 20, the closest I've gotten is to finally start the battle with the Naga with very little energy left, only to be swarmed by the serpents the Naga spawns. The scarcity of scrolls is this game is maddening. Some of these battles are a seemingly endless slog that is no fun at all. The first time I played the game, I played on Normal, but shamelessly spamming cheat codes. Then I played twice on Casual, which is really casual. Now I'm trying to play the game "straight" on Normal, and it's a huge struggle. Unless there's a strategy I'm missing, I can't see how I can finish this quest.
  11. Thank you! Is there some way to check your stats on speed etc.?
  12. If you're like me, you have been tempted to ask Sayaga in Etzalam to make you a sword that shoots rainbows rather than one that is better in battle. Well, I finally tried it. Long story short: THERE ARE NO RAINBOWS. Here's video proof. https://diode.zone/w/kRRaC3vP9zqt4EBwCaZWr9
