Man I hope it's the same dragon I already killed - big red scary guy - yep breathed fire and I was toast. I also had to keep running out of his way. Didn't think to lure him into a town - I kept running around in circles lol Then all of a sudden he got stuck against a cactus I think and couldn't move (I personally said a prayer of thanks to the god of game bugs for that one) evil and I just slashed at him until he was dead.

hi
is there anything i can do to prevent wilbur from dying once i get to the evil traitor person (way up north). i kind of liked him.
and there's a guy who told me to find his wives, but i can't get into the cave that supposedly holds them because there's water out front. i don't want to leave the wives in there, who knows what evil might befall them.

Sorry lucca, frown
I felt the same way, but nope that is how the game plays no matter what you do. I sure missed him.
You'll get to find another buddy a little bit later.

I've been playing Sacred at lunch time from time to time for ages. Am still in chap 1. I was having a few weird problems that the download to Sacred Plus fixed for me.

It's an interesting game, but definitely not a fav for an rpg system. Compared to NWN and KOtoR, there seems to be so little in the way of additional plots.

Pib, I would compare the game more along the lines of Diablo-esque.

Syd ----- How's your game coming along? Haven't had any updates from you recently. laugh laugh Still playing the chicken game with a big group of enemies??? laugh laugh

Lucca, there is a second entrance to that cave. I haven't played for a while so I can't tell you off hand where that entrance is. I'm sure you will run across it sooner or later. I remember being stumped at the same quest.

thanks rowan, but the women will have to suffer at the hands of those hoodlums. a higher duty calls, and i am off south towards the desert.
the real weird part is that it regenerates faster than any other rpg i've played. the monsters just keep coming and i'm almost sure the quests are randomly generated.

If you do almost all of the quests in a region or town you will get a message that the area has been cleared out and a little banner symbol appears on the map. When that happens there will be a great slow down in the regeneration of baddies in that region. That is why it is worthwhile staying in a town and accepting all the quests including the times quests.

I really ought to try that. It would be nice to have fewer monsters generating in some areas.

I do think monster regeneration is too fast in this game. You would think killing 40+ goblins or whatever close to town would be enough to make any others in the area pause before they attach. smile

Hi mackie laugh I know I haven't been around here much - been putting in 12 hour days at work and whatever spare time I have I'm smacking virtural baddies around so I haven't had much time for posting lol

Lucca I know how you felt about Wilbur frown I replayed that part three times hoping I had done something wrong so I could prevent his demise - alas it wasn't meant to be. I'm in Chapter 3 right now - doing quests around Braverock Castle. I sorta remember rescuing a bucnch of women but don't remember how I got to them (anything past 20 minutes ago and I can't remember) eek

I'm with you Pib - I would think after all those baddies watching me dispatch their ilk with my trusy blade and fire storm would run in terror - but nooooooo - they keep coming at me and worse they bring friends rotfl

Rowen I obviously haven't done all the quests in an area because I have never seen a banner (and here I thought I was doing so well) think

When I played this I did all the untimed quests in a town first and I would decline the timed ones until I had done the others. When no more regular quests appeared I began to do those that gave you a day to do them. When I did some of those that message that the region is at peace would be given. That is when that banner appeared on the map in that region. It made revisiting that region in the future less irksome. There were still some baddies but not near anything like before.

Braverock is a huge area with a great number of quests. woozy You'll be there for quite a while if you are planning on doing all the quests.

Hurrah, I made it to chapter 2.

Drat Wilbur dies at the start of the chap, is this the unavoidable death previously mentioned?

yea pib, that's it frown

rowan, when she says: "this region is at peace!" does that mean i've done all the quests in that region?

and... my log book isn't recording the quests anymore. the last one it recorded was at slater's grave, that's less than half the quests i've done so far. i've been getting quests and finishing them, and getting the blue and yellow thingies in the map, but it's like she just decided she was sick of keeping a log.
is this one of the dreaded glitches in the game? has it happened before?

The log has tabs for each chapter, once you start chap 2. I only noticed it cause Wilbur gave me a quest and when I first went to the log, it was showing me the chap 1 quests. Look to the left of the journal and hit a tab.

Lucca, when you get the message that this region is at peace it means that you have done a sufficient percentage of the quests. I don't think it is all of them, just most of them. Good luck. Have you noticed any banners yet on your map?

I think it has to do with a bad interface design in the game and nothing to do with your brains. I spent some time looking through all the chap 1 quests in the log trying to spot the new stuff. Then finally I noticed the stupid tab. woozy

It should default to opening the log to the current chapter, that would be far better and less disconcerting. The game has so many other things it must track, the current journal page shouldn't add that much burden to it.

I didn't see the tabs at first, either. I thought the game was buggy (which it was, but not in this case).

Arrrgh I need help. I am looking for the second element of Ancaria and have no clue where it is. I found the air one in the abandoned Ice palace in Frostgard and my log book says I have to get the fire element from the dragon at Alkanaba noc Draco in the far south. My problem is the far south of what? There is a dragon in Frostgard but he's not in the far south - he was up around the ice palace and I have him trapped inside right now. Is that the dragon I'm supposed to kill or is there another one some place? My map only shows the elements at the entrance to the cave so that's no help in pin pointing the exact location.

Any one remember this part?

Edit - well I answered one part of my question - the dragon I was talking about was not the one I needed - so where the heck is this turkey?

Edit the second time - I looked closer at my "paper" map and found Alkazaha nor Draco on it - please ignore this entire post whistle

the only problem is, my log says i have to go to noc draco, but my map is still showing a yellow thingie next to frostgard... so i really have no idea where to go...

lucca you need to be where I've been trying to get to for the past 5 hours frown I can't find a way into the dratted place. Head out of Frostgard and go south back through the library and the monastary - remember the desert? Well the area we need to get into is to the west of that. Looks like the middle of the lava field but for the life of me I can't find a way in. I have gone almost completely around this place and all I can find is cliff faces and caves with nasty creatures in it. I'm on my way back up toward Porto Draco in hopes of finding a way in from that side but it's not looking good.

Edit - Edit - I found the way in lol I must have zigged when I should have zagged and missed the opening the first time around the cliffs. Not that I'm thrilled mind you - I've already died three times woozy
