I am in Free Haven and just got Expert Water Magic and bought Town Portal. It seems to only take me to the portal zone in Free Haven. To travel to other towns, will I need Master Water Magic? Also, after buying all this, I am pretty much broke. I sold everything I could. Any hints on getting some gold quick, other than killing enemies, which takes a long time?

Have you already tried this ...... ??

If you have the Fly spell AND the Town Portal spell, go up on the roof of the Buccaneer's Lair in New Sorpigal.
You can warp to the Temple of the Gods from there - if you are agile enough !!

[I think this is like some kind of Easter Egg in the game.]

Just make sure you save immediately you are in a safe place on the roof because you will be attacked the instant you try to reach the Temple.

AND you can't leave the Temple (and LIVE) unless you have Town Portal spell to get you out.

Whilst in the temple, however, you have access to many valuables - for which you might have to fight, of course snicker

That sounds like a good use of the Town Portal spell. I think it might work. I see little hope of accumulating much wealth by other means. Thanks, I'll try it.

It was rather tricky and took several tries before we got into the place. The Town Portal worked great. Sure glad I had it. My Knight didn't get an upgrade because he died entering. I may try doing it again from my save since I have no more Fly scrolls.

Glad you had a go, Pokey smile

It's not at all easy to get into the Temple but I found it to be well worth it. Even though it took me many, many tries rolleyes

Hi Pokey,
How are you doing with Might and Magic 6? I played it years ago and after your post, I decided to play it again. I don't remember such groups of villains ganging up on you. My group has died many times. I save every few minutes. I finally got Water and Air Magic to Master. Now I can use the Town Porter and Lloyd's Beacon and I haven't been to Silver Cove yet.

Hi Kayc
Nice to hear someone else is playing this great old game. I've played 7 and 8 and decided I should play 6, since it has good reviews. I am moving along now, clearing out the Temple of Baa in Castle Ironfist. I have done most of the other dungeons in the early areas and am heading to Silver Cove for the first time to do the Seer pilgrimage there. It was fun clearing out the pack of werewolves in Blackshire to get their chest full of gold. Hope to get my sorcerer to water magic master soon to make traveling easier.

I love M&M. I must have played VII five or six times, and VI and VIII at least four times. Great fun.

Enjoy!

I haven't and don't even know where it is, but I expect it is not a nice place to visit. I'll check it out..

Edit...I guess that is the New World Computing. I did visit quite a while ago and went through it

Yes. I think it might actually be called New World Computing .... It's the place that's full of game development staff lol

EDIT :

Maybe The Temple of the Gods is called The Shrine of the Gods ??
I've forgotten !!
Looks like I need to do yet another replay wink

hagatha, I love the Might and Magic series. Have played them several times. I bought Oblivion a couple of weeks ago and it really confuses me. So, I loaded up Might and Magic 6. I've played Skyrim and Morrowind but I don't think Oblivion is as good or it could be me. lol.
Thanks
Kay

The gargoyles in Silver Cove were weren't much fun but we managed to sneak in and get our personality bonus at the shrine. We did manage to kill a few, but think we will head back to easier pickings. My Sorcerer is a master in water magic now, so traveling is a lot easier. Hope to get enough gold to buy Lloyd's Beacon soon.

I've always wished for an updated MM game, something with all of the silliness and quirks but with better graphics. MM9 just wasn't it. I've started that one a few times and never seem to get very far before I abandon it.

I still haven't been to Silver Cove. I think you have to have some magic to fight one of the gargoyles. Maybe the Diamond? Getting ready to go to Blackshire to tackle the Werewolf's.

The best way to fight the gargoyles, IMO, is Acid Burst. It's a water spell. It seems like I only had Ice Bolt at that time, so it might be best to avoid them.

I agree, Hagatha,M&M9 isn't one of the best & I think it's the hardest of any of the M&Ms. I've played M&M6 several times, & I think 7 is my favorite.

I found this out rather quickly. Only my sorcerer was effective against the diamond gargoyle, using fire spells. I need to get better offensive spells for my other magic users. The stone gargoyles were more vulnerable.

For those of you wishing there could be more Might and Magic, I'm wondering if anyone has tried Might and Magic X: Legacy? It got pretty good reviews when it came out, and it seems like it might provide a good fix for Might and Magic fans.

I tried acid burst on the gargoyles and it didn't faze any of them. Is there anything other than fire that works on them?

Pokey, what kind of gargoyles? Some sites I looked at said spells like "harm" or fire, ice, or lightening bolt. This was for Diamond Gargoyles. They also recommended bows with elemental damage but not poison. luck

Thanks, Looney. I wanted to get something other than a fire spell for my other magic users. I see that acid is classified as poison, so they are immune to it. It is a good spell otherwise. It is mainly the Diamond Gargoyle that is the problem. The others can be hurt with physical damage.

I'm using lightning bolt on them. Works pretty good! I use the Acid Burst on just about everything else. Went to Blackshire and got the shield and went to the Lair of the Wolf to do some quests and it is full of slimes. Would you believe not one shop had a Magic Wand, so I left and I'm fighting the gargoyles too.
