It's me again! How do I switch fairies once I have 6 of them? I went to London thinking I have to put them in the chest, but nothing happened. I have a corbot I'd like to use.

Thanks,
Jean

When you are in London, go into the inventory screen. The tab above the inventory items is your fairies. Just drag the one you want on top of the one you want to replace.

You can always look at this screen any time. I always use it to check the hit points and levels of any new fairy I catch. I then look at the fairy book for the new fairy and see if it can evolve.

Evolving fairies makes them much stronger. I just evolved a light fairy and her hit points went from 75 to 150, and the new light fairy can evolve also! laugh

Thanks, it worked! Where do you find the light fairies? So far I haven't come across any.

I'm done for the night. When I get two tired my fairies fly right off the platforms! rolleyes

Jean: I belive the light fairy is in the Ruins In the Forest. You get there by going through one of the gates in Tiralin, but you will need the Key from the dwarf which you don't get for a while.

You will get a light fairy after the arena, but you must trade it to continue, so when it happens, there is no point in trying to make it any better. laugh

Aha! I wondered how to get to the Ruins! I've been trying by going through the Forest where the sign says "The Hut". Did you know there are fairies in there that are levels 31 and above? eek I dove into the light for those. rolleyes The second time around I avoided them and got two gold spheres.

Have you been through the Catacombs yet?

Hi Jean, did you try the swamp? I finally got through all the battles in a row ( I had so much trouble with the last shadow elf but the dwarf battles were no problem at the tower, and I'm just wandering around admiring the view. I think the problem with the one battle is he often used dark magic, and I had nothing to combat it.

Hi nickie:

I've been to the village in the swamp, but not actually through the swamp yet. I fought two elves but haven't found the third. The leader says I'm not worth fighting until I beat them all.

Theres a prickly bush blocking my way into the swamp, so I guess I need a fairy to dissolve it. I can't go in the water, can I?

I have a lot more to do, I see! happydance

Jean

Jean, from the town there are two ramps into the swamp. The one is blocked by the bush, but the other one isn't. I guess you knew that though, if you were fighting shadow elves.The other bad one is right around there- you might have to cross water.Not a problem, if you are not in there too long. If it looks like something you could ordinarily jump across, you can probably make it. If you don't guess right and start sinking, and your jump key doesn't help, you can just use your runes to go somewhere else and not drown.

Congratulations for finishing the game, Stitchman. How long did it take you?

I'm still wandering around in the swamp, nickie. I killed the third shadow elf, but haven't fought the big guy yet. I'm looking for the nature card, which I read is somewhere there.

There are so many fairies to fight that I finally went back to the Fairy Garden and spent long enough training that I was able to buy 5 manas, 5 big potions, 5 medium and 5 small. I figure now I can go back to the swamp and not have to keep coming out to get more mana and health points.

How are you doing? wave

Hi Jean, Yes - I had to go back and forth a lot in the Swamp until I got my guys levels up. Right now I'm at the tournament at the big tree (been through the tower,mountains, and part of the realm of clouds). I don't know if you already know this, but if you look at the map, it will show an exclamation mark where you need to go to make the story continue.

It took about 45 hours to finish, a lot of that time was spent building up fairies for specific battles.

Jean: You need to find an island in the swamp that has a Stonehenge like structure on it. After the battle you will find the Fairy card of nature letting you get past those special bushes as long as your lead fairy is a nature one.

The island can be hard to find because you cannot see it from very far away. laugh

Thanks for the tip about the map, nickie. I didn't notice the exclamation mark, so will have to look tonight when I get home. The Realm of the Clouds sounds interesting. happydance

stitchman, thanks for pointing out that the stones aren't that easy to see. I wasn't sure if I was wandering in the wrong direction or not. wave

Oops, another question. Should I collect all the fairies I see? I already have 2 corbot's and don't need more, but it keeps asking me if I want to capture them. On the other hand, if I capture them does that mean they won't show up at that particular tree again? In the swamp, every time I go back, no matter how many times I've defeated them, they show up at the same spot.

I guess Stitchman would have a more definative answer, but I would think you would not - for one thing there is a limited amount of globes,unless you have a ton of money, and at most you would only want to collect one of a type. What I am not sure of is whether you have to collect fairies you don't think you will ever use.Hope not. But no, if you catch the fairy, another one can appear in its spot. I've found that when your guys get tough, and you've been through the same area several times, few fairies will show themselves. Now I have a question. Do you have to have what is in the little box in the mountain area that the dwarf "gives" you after you show him that you have the ancient dwarf tools? It's a real pain to keep making attempts, and if I don't have to have it, I would really like to forget about it.

When you start a battle,, it will say above the fairies head if you do not have the fairy yet. You can try to get all the fairies, but it would be extremely difficult since you can only get some by trading with other fairy collectors you meet. Also, some of your fairies evolve, meaning you no longer have the original and would need to capture another one. I finished with 50 fairies.

Yes, that box by the dwarf was an incredible pain, it took me about a dozen tries to get it (but once you get it you can then warp away without having to make the jumps back). The item you get is needed to activate the elevator in the dwarf town which leads to the fire caves. You MUST capture a fairy there called Pix so you can trade it for a key in the Shadow Realm

Good hunting laugh <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> laugh
