John, the dragon did show itself after I 'saved' having got the element. I died laugh

Loaded the Saved Game and carefully dodged the dragon and went south.

Having spent all day trying to find dragons in that area - the only sign being scorched earth everywhere - thought they must be up on the higher ground but could not discover a way up.

Came to the conclusion, as the yellow arrow was still pointing to the monastery and the gold thingy was still up there, I ought to have killed that dragon. Soooooo......plodded all the way back, stopping off in a town to fill the backpack with lotions and visiting a combo master.

During this period I suddenly realised, this late in the game, that the yellow potions quickly replenished the combos rolleyes If only I'd discovered that earlier. Now I set off to meet the Frostgard dragon with more hope. And never found the dashed thing.

Whatever, was coming up to the next level by downing giants - they respawn by the dozen - and suddenly noticed some thing had triggered the arrow to point south. Wasn't the least surprised the gold thingy had been teleported to the sahara! Now, would you believe, I can't find my way out of the frozen north cry

Have had to give up for the day - am having a lot of trouble with my eyes this week.

Will see what tomorrow brings.

Alice if you've gotten the first element then you're through with the Seraphim Monastery. I found that some times the gold marker stays there until you "walk" south back down to Ice Creek Pass. You need to retrace your steps to Ice Creek Pass and then the Marker should show your next objective(quest). I hate to be a broken record but if you follow the compass direction you should end up back at Ice Creek Pass. When you here a sound and see a circular thingy on your screen then the Marker has moved and your objective changed.

Good Luck

John - Thanks once again for your patience with this dumb idiot.

Haven't had a chance to get the game loaded yet today but am about to trot down to the Sahara again because the thingy was showing up there when I closed down last evening.

Wish me luck. How many dragons are there to dispatch? Not to many, says she hopefully. lol

Hugs,

Alice.

Hi all,

I afraid you will run into dragons in a few places. I think I ran into at least 4 already.

Oldman,
I have placed rings and amulets but not sure what you mean when you say runes. What do they look like or what do they say when you place your cursor on them???

Are they the ones you get and click on them to upgrade you skills???

Hey I just noticed that I am now an addicted boomer hehe. Yeah that would be true enough. smile

VHL what I mean by runes are those that you use for spells or combat arts. Like the Hard Hit and for the vamp change into vampire. You can slot those even if you have them for other characters. If you are a vampiress and you slot one of the Combat Arts rather than double click on it you get the same effect as if you read it (double click) plus it adds effects to the armor/weapon you slot it in. The best ones to slot (and it works in both armor and weapons) are the vamp ones that draw life rather than the ones that extend night.

John - at last I have the fire element - taken me most of the day laugh But I didn't clear the cave of all the baddies. I lost Isabella four times so gave up on that quest - pity, she had become such a nuisance!

Should I have cleared the ruins, because after getting back to the hidden village and out the front door, the map still shows the arrow pointing to the fire thingy. Hope I haven't got to trudge all the way back to Icecreek Dale to be shown where the next element is hiding out.

I have collected a new type of icon - a piece of slate marked Portal some thing or other - should have made a note of that. My memory is........

Oh, was that Portal Stone?

Now I must find time to have some supper.

Tomorrow is another day.

See you,

Alice.

Alice you must have gotten past another dragon on your way to the fire element then. If you look on your map and scroll to the top right you should see another gold marker in Zhurag-Nur. This is your next element.

Good luck

Finished Sacred Plus and have begun Underworld. It is rather full of critters! I think they come in larger hordes in this expansion than in the game. Haven't gone too far yet.

I am having some trouble with the saves. They just don't show up except for the Quicksaves! I;m going to check through Windows Explorer to see where they have gone as it shows them "being saved". Curious thing. think

Hi Peggy,

The monsters are non-stop in Underworld and they respawn consantly. Be sure and have plenty of potions and whatever crowd clearing spells your character has.

Have fun.

John - did kill the dragon who was holding the fire element. Wasn't aware there was a second drgon to kill - plenty of wyverns and I downed those.

Oh well, when I load the game will have another look.

On my way south, before the gold thingy showed up at noc Draco, I accidently wandered through the Zhurag-Nur region and downed some of those eleves - surely this would not affect the game?

Well, will soon find out laugh

Hi all,

Oh wow oldman I just learned another new thing for this game. smile Thank You.

Well I played my Seraphim yesterday and she is just got the 4th elament which was void. A really weird element.

Hey threads....you think the dragons are big...wait until you see some really really big monsters way down south. Not sure what they were because I just kept running and didn't bother to fight them with my Seraphim. Maybe will try with my strongest person.

VHL glad to be of help. It took me a while to figure out what to slot and to look for slotted items.

If you get Celestial Light up at a high level you can just stand in the middle and watch the monsters die while swinging away with your weapon. It's the best combat art for the Seraphim. Sometimes I used to cast Celestial Light and then run around in cirles and have them chase me through light and die.


Alice, I hope you didn't assume that you got the fire element from the Dragon. You just get a key from him to open a door that leads to the file element.

Hi all - am lagging behind you more than a bit.

John, I found the element looking for the second dragon laugh Never did find the second dragon though lol

Whatever - I'm now plodding through the Dark Elf hostel with the head of the slaves getting under my feet - can't find the darned armoury. He doesn't intend to help until he is armed.

Had an inventory full of red and yellow potions when I started but it looks as though I might run out. Have come out of the game to come here, also because my eyes are getting to tired - but there looks as though there is an interesting area just north of me. Hope it takes me to the earth element before I die the death scared

VHL - I find the Celestral Light mixed with BeeGee (if I have the last name correct)works fine on monsters.) Could have been stronger had I known about exchanging combo arts before. Hadn't realised one used the icons of other characters and not one's own.

I'm now level 38 - is that about average for where I am at the moment?

Now I must get myself to bed before I drop rolleyes

Good night all.

Alice sleep

Strange about the saves. I finally started overwriting the old ones from Sacred and that works. Otherwise they don't show up.

I'm not sure I like Underworld. The graphics are great, but so far it is nothing except hack and slash. I have no room in the inventory for anything other than healing potions! And the merchants are very far apart. frown I am not sure that I am going to continue. Perhaps tomorrow I will have a fresh outlook. lol wave

Hi all,

Well so far I am not liking the sound of Underworld if its just hack and slash.

So how do the rest of you feel about Underworld?

I agree with Peggy. The Underworld Campaign in this expansion was dissapointing to say the least and it is constant wading through hoardes of monsters. That said, I do like what they did with the basic game (or the Arcaria Campaign as they call it).

I commented on this earlier;

Has anyone else ever done such a foolish thing. Was just about to grab the earth element when I died the death. Ended back in the dragon area surrounded by wyverns without a single potion in my inventory

Had to go back two saves and lost 2 levels mad

See you.

Yes Alice. That's exactly what happened to me also so don't feel bad. I died because I was out of potions and re-spawned to a place I couldn't get out of alive without them. Catch twenty-two! I've been doing a new save as soon as I level each time. At least that way I don't loose moore then one level if I'm forced to go back.

Can someone please tell me what kind of stats a person needs to stay alive? I'm level 42 and playing as a Seraphim just like Alice. I'm trying to beat my way through the "Forge of the Ancestors" quest after the Storming of Braverock Castle and killing DeMordrey. Can't do it. There's a lot of undead in that cave and I think the Skeleton Mages are my problem. I haven't run across this before. I go from full health to dead in a split second! It's so fast I never know what happened or why. My poison and fire resistance were over 200...magic over 300. What am I missing or just how high do all of these kinds of stats need to be?? From the sounds of it I wouldn't make it two feet in Underworld the way I am now!!

Thanks,

Marilyn

Hi,

Well I just took Underworld off my wish list because it sounds just like Diablo II which has the same thing when you go back the monsters just keep respawning.

Well I suppose this might be a good thing if you want to keep upleveling but is does become annoying in any case.

I may change my mind about this...who knows.

I decided to go back to Icewind Dale, which I had put aside to play Sacred Plus and Underworld. It's almost as bad but at least the respawn is less. However, I think I may wait even on it and try something completely different for a while. Considering Thief 3. I'll see if sneaking is better than slashing. lol

Another gripe about Underwold before I totally keep quiet, I found having the folks join my party made it even harder as I could not simply run since they were determined to stop and slay every monster, bug and bad guy! rolleyes

Will check in now and then to see how you guys are doing. wave

Hi all.

Another odd thing has happened in Sacred. Was asked by a magician/sorceror to kill a large spider and bring its brain back to make a magic potion/article. This I did but as the spider was nearing its end it gave me a quest. Wanted me to rescue the woman kept as a prisoner by the evil magician who required its brain.

When I returned to the man he knew I'd been given that quest and started a fight to the end. Found the key to his cellar but the doors in the cellar were locked. In fact the first door was open as I entered the cellar but it shut itself before I reached it and the key didn't work.

Have done this over eand over again. No go.

Then I killed a similar spider and collected a brain, when I returned to the area the place was deserted and the cellar doors were locked. So I gave up on that one.

Am now back in Braverock trying to reach the castle to meet Shareera and hand over the fifth element.

Surprised I've got so far and up to level 43. Have had little time to play for two weeks. Hope the tide has turned.

See you,

Alice

Edit: Got to level 42 unaware I had abilities to sread around !!!!!! There were over 45 waiting for me to use blush

I have a level 45 dark elf; I'm attempting to get to Shaddur Nur (I think) to take care of the big bad guy. But I can't find any undead potions or health at any of the merchants; without them, I'm a goner. This is driving me nuts.

Any suggestions?

I also started Bambi, my wood elf. She's at about level 19 or 20, but I don't think I chose the right CAs. What are the best skills and CAs to pump up for a wood elf? She has a level 25 unicorn to help her, level 6 hard hit, and level 6 poison tentacles; everything else is pretty low level. Should I start over? I hate to, as I do have two of a unique set -- first time that's happened to me and I'd hate to lose them.

The merchants replenish their stock everyday I think, use the portals to pop around to the different towns to check the merchants for potions.
I played a dark elf when the game was released, I relied almost entirely on Battle Fog, it freezes the enemies and you can kill them while they just stand there.

Can't give you any advice on Wood Elf

Hi Vermin

I went through Underworld Campaign with my Wood Elf and finished with her at level 58.

For me I liked Multiple Shot, Eye for an Eye, Poison Tendrils and Quick as a Flash. Hard Hit and Penetrating are good for a few points but I only used them in combos with Multiple shot.

I pumped all my points into Physical Regeneration and advanced other attributes with equipment add ons. My highest skills were:

Ranged Combat
Concentration
Agility
Moon Magic
Constitution

Using Poison Tendrils and peppering them with multishot made her pretty powerful at higher levels.

I also got equipment with the most slots I could and put my runes into those slots. Vamp runes that draw life help to make your arrows more powerful so I slotted them a lot.
