Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Turn 124 ... aka the long way home ... surrounded by enemies, still about 550 hp left, it is night and I am chaotic - blue and yellow potion behind me - and the Adjucator of Chaos is dead! Turn 127 ... easiest thing was to actually just throw away my health, drink the yellow potion and run - with 10...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Interesting. I think I choose similarly to you on most things you have mentioned, esp. prefering Dauntless over Steadfast. To my mind the most efficient way to play is to make as strong offense as you can and rely on positioning abilities like hit&run and cyan potions for defense. But that is just ...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Regarding Damage vs. Strikes - I have done some experiments with that this afternoon and still didn't figure out how the opponent picks its defensive weapon. For instance, both the Eye Demon and the Abyss Devil have two weapons: one has slows, the other one more strikes and damage. From what I figur...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

I'm currently playing ToB with a Fencer Warrior. Actually tried this with a Paladin before because of its great resistances, but had a big problem with terrain training. I'm not a big fan of playing on 40% terrains and also like a fast, quickly moving units, which means you need either cave explorer...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Cool, I've never made it that far with a ranged unit. It's a lot easier with a warrior. However, the big problem with Temple of Bones is that the game becomes unplayably slow after about turn 100 - No Luck Mode doesn't help at all. On my computer, I takes about 5 seconds before the attack selection ...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Hmm, I don't remember having too many problems with poison when I played this. Have you tried increasing your blade resistances a bit? I already had 25% and steadfast when the spiders became super strong and I also tried not to let them hit me. As a Mage, you can hit them with an ice ball, then kill...

Re: compressed saves, idle musings

Speaking of auto-saves, I would like to make two suggestions. First of all, please provide a way of choosing the name for the saves and to choose a different folder. The default file name should also be changed to something that either includes the MP game title / MP game host, the current date or a...

Re: compressed saves, idle musings

Modern compression algorithms can do so much more than simple redundancy removal. For instance, one very simple way of compressing a file that I still remember from some early university classes is using a dynamic-length encoding. Today's operating systems store text files in a format that takes one...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

I finally did it :D :D :D Watching your Paladin replay and looking at the enemy stats at various turns helped me figure it out! Finished it in 119 turns, clearing the entire map. It is absolutely amazing how strong the Mage gets in the end! On the final turn, I have 452 Maximum Mana and regenerate 7...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Just watched your reply again until turn 50, this time setting point of view to full map, looking at enemy stats - and then I did the same with mine. You never got into this mess of being surrounded and needing 3 or more turns to kill a single enemy. I think my biggest mistake was on turn 28 where I...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Here's another attempt. This time, I concentrated far more on damage and was doing much better before I got trapped again in that same eastern cave as before - surrounded by enemies which are all too strong for me to easily kill them. And giant lvl 7 spiders are my biggest problem. I have these weap...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Well, so I basically got surrounded by enemies and trapped. And I've reloaded this game enough, so I think I'm stuck here.

However, I learned a lot from this, so I think I'll just start over, correcting some of the mistakes that I did this.

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Thanks a lot for your feedback! I finally got to the point where I killed the undead leader and picked up the Cornucopia of Fortune. Speed is really the key factor here, if you stall for too long, then the enemies get too strong. As soon as you start spending more gold to heal than what you earn fro...

SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Hey guys, I recently started to enjoy the SX RPG games on higher difficulties (using the correct SX RPG Era) and am wondering whether there are some strategy guides. At the moment, I am having some huge problems beating Castle of Cantar on Expert difficulty. Since it's working fine on the easier dif...

Re: World Conquest: Surviving the Nightmare

Hmm, is the game very different when you play it alone (on Nightmare)? Is droiding the other sides a viable option for learning? So far, I've only reached Map 3 once, but never actually played it. I think I've been too embarrassed because most WC were "experts only" - until I finally realized that d...
