Re: Silver Top Mtn. - Path through teleports [ANSWERED]

You can come back once you learn the ol' boy's name. He will need a variety of objects from you, so unless you have explored thoroughly (or cheated by getting clues in the forum!) you'll be disappointed the first time, but at least you'll have the way mapped, so the second time will be pretty quick....

Re: Warrior vs Paladin?

It took me a while to figure this out, but my ideal party as described elsewhere had warrior (becomes D.C. with Silversword). I figured a hunter would be just as good. In fact, I found my ideal party had a D.C. with the Staff of Storms. With its range, the DC can stay out of melee, adopt the Offense...

Re: Do I Need a Bard?

Never found one in the Ridge Fault, only later in the game. hunterofEvil makes a good point: between the Singing Sword and horns, the bard is a terrific character. I'm not sure about the drop rate on the ridge, but the QUALITY of the drops is outstanding. BTW, I made a mistake re. barbarian critical...

Re: Sodar’s Eye

There's a list of the buffs on here somewhere. Suffice it to say they are useful to carry around. Use one after every anti-magic area that cancels your buffs.

Re: Rubies ? Chest in Ridge Fault ?

My preference is to turn a warrior into a D.C. The warrior retains number of attacks and gradually regains THAC0 so is ideal to wield the Staff of Storms. Plus large number of HP and melee becomes less important later in the game. Better to have multiple caster, as you know. In your case I'd turn on...

Re: Rubies ? Chest in Ridge Fault ?

Yes, you will need a DC to finish. Monk and Bard are poor choices IMO. Who else is in your party? Warriors make (arguably) the best DCs.

Re: Rubies ? Chest in Ridge Fault ?

So you're all set on rubies? I remember you could trade two rubies for a diamond, but can't remember if you can do the reverse.)

To clear the pesky last red light on a lock, use a lock pick (or Dietrich). It can be done by a rogue, though, with a high enough master thief skill:

Re: Boots of Speed?

You bet. Just curious -- what is your party makeup and who's getting the boots of speed? I have a Paladin, Monk (boots of speed), Bard, Rogue (hidden), DC with Staff of Storms and boots of speed, and two archmages.

Re: On the house

Those gem smashing games are so annoying! I play a couple of games that are ad supported, and three times now I have been tricked into downloading a game that looked like a mystery or a puzzle solving game, but turned out to be a simple story that requires gem smashing or matching or whatever to pro...
