  1. Is there any long-term consequence in the game to reporting the location of the spiders to the Sage in the Abyss? I personally hate spiders anyway, so I might just reveal their location. I've already done the Chitrach quest for the spiders so I am not sure if they are useful anymore.
  2. Ah yes I see now I am able to take a bit of a round-about route. It would be nice if I could destroy a few for the XP but I really am getting destroyed by these things haha. I may need to complete a few more quests. Merci.
  3. Am I supposed to be killing these pylons as I make my way through the western wastes outside of Fort Remote? They are utterly destroying me, so I am not sure if the idea is to sneak past them or not. All the best, Cinoo
  4. To add some detail for those playing this looking for information on this topic, I have done a few quest related things in Dharmon and as for the main storyline I need to go to Fort Remote after talking to the king. my levels are 16, 14, 16 and 16 so I may be just squeaking by most of these quests. I took some time to do a ton of side quests in the eastern gallery before this.
  5. Okay so I am doing many jobs and mini quests and I think this is helping me acquire enough experience and items that should help. My characters are much stronger. I think I went way too soon.
  6. Yes I basically didn't do anything on the Job Board. I think that I am used to Exile 3 where I sort of ignored that in favour of the bigger storyline elements and it worked out fine. I may have to give some of these jobs a shot; I did think I was advancing quickly. I actually did give some mage skill to my priest but that was my only character which was very diversified.
  7. In retrospect, the priest spells would have been a good idea. At this point, I am not sure when I will be adding in that factor as skill points are quite few and far between. Yes I am playing A4, I neglected to mention. I'll try taking out the pylons one by one from a sheltered line of sight, that's a good strategy. I actually completed the entire cave and managed to survive in the final battle with 1 pylon left, but, it took a lot of tries so I have the sense that my team is quite weak. I've decided to go around killing stuff elsewhere to increase my levels a little bit.
  8. Hello everyone, I cleared out Mortrax's cave except the final vahnatai boss. I am wondering what a typical level is like at this point, as my characters are 5 3 5 5 (and I made some bad stats choices on some of them too) and it seems pretty difficult to actually beat this battle. Is it possible to just jump at tasks right away like this, or is it expected for me to grind it out a little bit to gain strength before advancing through the quests? Or is my fighting strategy just bad. Cinoo
  9. Hello: Are there false walls in Avernum 4 akin to the exile series (1-3) wherein one could pass through false walls which acted in a way such that permitted passage similar to a gangway? I've just started playing Avernum 4 and it hasn't been readily apparent to me as to whether these exist and operate in such a similar fashion in this installment of the series. Many thanks, Cinoo
  10. Much sad. That's okay. I will just run on my win partition.
  11. Hello, Have Avernum 4 , 5, 6 ever been released as a version that is playable using a Linux-OS? Good day, Cinoo
  12. Update: I finished the game today. I guess all my grinding paid off as the final dungeon, aka the keep, was quite easy. Finally, its been decades since first playing the exile series as a kid. Note, once you go to Tinraya it's pretty much a one way trip to the end, so have everything you need. get energy potions from that random outdoors shop near wainscotting.
  13. Oh nice I see, I thought all the circles were alchemical ingredients I didn't even notice the difference between the ones with or outwith dots.
  14. Hi everyone, I am looking to find all these stone circles. I believe there are 5 of them? Anyone have any idea where they more or less are? Such as their proximity to the nearest town? Thanks you, Cinoo
  15. Which weapon would have better stats in practice? I'm not sure how to qualify the 'bonus'. I've also added a flaming quality to a steel halberd, so how do you think they compare?
  16. Maybe the big man himself can weigh in on this. I used shockwave to grind for my magic casters in Exile 2 and was sad that I can't do it in Exile 3 haha.
  17. Right, you mentioned that earlier my mistake, I misread your post. I'm still a little shaken up about this spell, it's really rattled me to the core. And yeah now I can use shockwave for instance, in holding pens on hostile creatures.
  18. This is some hard-hitting journalism here fellows. I am surprised that no-one was aware of this after Exile 3 existing for more than 2 decades.
  19. Good idea. I tried this and it turns out that my shockwave caused no damage through either walls or fire barriers, even with a townsperson on the immediate other side of a wall. That's sad, that spell was awesome! Haha. maybe it was too good.
  20. Pretty close. Within 5 spaces for sure the second time. Probably between 4-6 the first time.
  21. I tried using it in the Troglo Temple to kill various enemies while I was holed up in a small corner, and I also tried using it in a similar scenario in one of the destroyed towns in Footracer, with a fire barrier in the doorway of an otherwise intact building. The only damage coming up was to my own party.
  22. Alright, I have found a few things I'll keep poking around to see what else I can find. I'm definitely not ready yet for the keep, I need to level my weaker characters a bit first. Thanks.
  23. Does this spell not penetrate doors/walls/magic barriers? I am trying to cast this and it's not showing any damage incurred by enemies, only my own part. I remember in playing Exile 2 that it was a great spell and also good for me to gain experience on my mages.
  24. Hi Everyone, I'm now able to get into Footracer. What should be the first thing I do? My party is relatively strong and the beasts aren't that tough to battle. Merci for the advice
