- if you want to complete of the third quest, at first it is necessary to execute the fourth questSome quest monsters have all immunities except one. With the necessary elements you will find a thing nearby, in the nearest location.
- The secret entrance is in the fourth quest at last ruin level, BUT also there is an infinite cycle of levels without possibility to return back. And so, the entrance isn't designated on the map that it to find it is necessary to direct the cursor at a wall and to search for a ladder disappearing for a wall, in a proper place the ladder will be illuminated by green color. Also the help is absence of a statue of the woman in a wall.
- To get to a final location, it is necessary to kill Last martyr the special weapon. I will write more below.
5. Items and Gold:
- Gold doesn't drop out of monsters and chests in any quantity any more. Now you can find gold coins which can be sold to NPCs in a town. In the first act you'll see, coins to face values 100 and 300 gold (one coin), 500 gold (a small group of coins).
- In the first act you can collect set "Bloody Religion" with which it will be easier to kill final boss. Set parts drop from some super unique monsters. One part of a set is a sword with a name of Laytren - this thing appears practically in each quest so don't throw out it when will find.
- No changes yet.
7. Two optional bosses and an additional quest:
- "The Mad Doctor" and his minions "mad patient" wait for you in location Cave of Madmen. The boss uses Bone Spirit and has aura the Prayer. Reward for his death is charm "Reincarnation Stone"
- "The Rat hunter" - lives in location Rat Nest, reward for his death is charm "Strange thing from a rat nest" and set part of Bloody religion.
- "Teoneya isn't guilty!" - an additional quest, during lifetime of Teoneya have charged of murder of the daughter, but she admitted that loved the daughter Leana and didn't kill her, before death she repeated that isn't guilty and asked to search the house of Leana's stepmother. What to do: It is necessary to find proofs of innocence of Teoneya and to revenge for death of Leana. Having collected all proofs them it is necessary to combine in "a strange bag", as a result we will receive charm.
With changes like everything, but for certain something else I has forgotten...
The basic recipes and helps which will be useful to you:
- Gold coins can be put/combined in "a strange bag", they don't lose cost and quantity.
- To receive "the first unique sword" it is necessary to combine Myrel's Charge and Jarel's Broken Sword As a result we will receive "Laytren - Fury of Enslaved Souls"
- Read quest logs necessarily. There in detail all is described for the current and future quest.
- For the third quest the cup with blood of the murderer (Cup with Blood) is necessary to us. The cup can be found in the Mausoleum, a small bottle of blood we receive from the boss of the fourth quest.
- To get to a final location it is necessary to kill last martyr ONLY a special sword, anything else. A recipe: Laytren - Fury of Enslaved Souls, 3 essences (we receive from three martyrs in Great dungeon of Souls in the top part), the Overseer's Skull and Overseer's Armor (We receive it from two smiths in the Great dungeon of Souls). As a result we will receive unique sword Laytren - The Soul Destroyer.
- Laytren - The Soul Destroyer also a set part the Bloody Religion also is. To make a set sword from unique sword, we put unique sword in "a strange bag" and then press transform. Return operation probably too, but only after S&E.
- Doors - Doors it not only doors, but also portals to other locations. Pay attention of each door.
- The location Forbidden Garden - entrance in this location is the necessary door around monastery vicinities.
