I was actually more frightened by squeaking doors and "Rar" in a long dungeon. That is, when I wasn't supposed to be staying up that late.
Hummm .... the sound of squeaking doors in Exile 2 nephil fort, when I was resting trying to regain some SP. More than ten years ago now....

A3 - savory herbs in The Avernum Trilogy
Warrior
Member # 6801

I was able to get all the money I wished by buying herbs at the nephil village (very cheap), making potions and selling them in Stormport. Then I bought mandrake root from the hermit on the isles and made as many skill potion as I could.
In fact it was too easy...

Which armour provides more protection? in The Avernum Trilogy

If I remember well, Pachtar's plate give also +1 AP (and maybe other bonuses) so it may be better than the robe.

I, II, or III in The Exile Trilogy
Warrior

Exile 2 was (and still is) my favorite. It also was the first I played.I loved the plot and the world. Exile 3 was great, but as much as I loved the huge world and the outdoor graphics, I found the plot rather weak and I missed the "patriotic" feeling I had when I fought the Empire in Exile 2.

Food was a problem at the beginning of Exile 1 and 3 because it was not so cheap and you had few money to spend on it.
In Exile 2 it quickly wasn't much of a problem.

[bug] Missing shade in Avernum 4
Warrior

You have three shades in the game, the first is in Formello or Silvar (moving from one town to the other, you can't do business when it's in town), the second is in Almeria and the third is in Blosk or Dharmon (again, moving from one town to the other).

If I remember well, you get the mission from both Pirro and Camp Samuel. I guess you can also get a reward from both.

Does anyone use thrown weapons in AV4? in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 6801
Profile #10
I choosed to train one of my character in thrown weapons instead of bows. But missiles' weight sucks. So I bought two levels of bow skill in Camp Samuel for ease of play. I kept fine razor disks in storage anyway. I will use them for the end game, they do more damage than bows' arrows.

Who's it better to kill in Avernum 4

OK, I see thank you. The problem is I didn't get the quest to kill the battlemaster. I talked to him first and choosed to help him. When I told Queen Anatollia I killed Imriel, she went angry but didn't attack me.
I think I wil have to be the agressor.

I choosed to aid battlemaster Crewl. Is there a way to get a quest to attack Anatolia or to have her attack you?
I would like to attack Spire, they are allied with the Darside Loyalist afterall, but would rather not be the aggressor.

Should I Buy...? in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 6801
Profile #9
The demo should enable you decide. As many other Exile/Avernum fan's I find A4 weaker than other Avernum games. It's not so much the main plot, of course it is unimaginative. The problem is I can't get the same feeling in the world I get from previous games.
I also realy miss the boats. With the lot of rivers and lake I feel robed of a big part of the game. The absence of regenerating dungeons like in Exile 2 is also a shame, with a rather short game (comparing with A2 or A3) it would have been nice to always be able to grab a bit more money or XP if you wish, especialy with the new special skills.
On the positive side, First Aid is great, the aera spells are back and you have a lot of special equipement to choose from.
Anyway, I bought A4, I have almost finished it and I would buy it again.

Questions, troubles and help needed in Avernum 4
Warrior

You can't make your own potions. There is no alchemy skill in Avernum 4. It may be useful to buy ingredients and then get help from an alchemist in town, probably cheaper than buying the potion.
It is also an easy way to resolve some quest when you are asked to find a potion ingredient (like graymold in the demo).

What is the best spell? in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 6801
Profile #17
I vote for Acid Spray, it does a lot of damage over time and was the way to kill all the pylons on the way to the Basalt Fortress. I like Icy Rain too, Lighting Spray ic nice when 3 foes are close together.
I prefer to avoid high level damage spells, they don't seem to be cost effective.

Ghall-Ihrno NOT in Guest Quarters??? in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 6801

After you release him from his cell, you have to escort him. On your way you are ambushed at least three time by almaria's madmen. If you leave Ghall ihrno alone after talking to him in the cell, he is bound to be killed.
When you reach a gate in the north of almaria's sewer, you get a message saying that Ghall Ihrno manage to pass between the bars (you can't follow him), and should reach the castle safely.

OK that's it, I have to kill the shade to gain training in those skills, thank you.

By the way I think this way of restricting training is frustrating for players. It would have been better to allow only one point per skill to be bought from each trainer, whatever the level a character has got in the skill.

I can't get trained in Quick Strike by the guy in Cotra. My character has it at 0, satisfies the condition of STR and DXT and it's available on my training screen (whith a + if I wish to spend skill points). Do I need to do some quest before?

Do draining slimes (like those you can find in the Tower of Magi or in the Honeycomb) drain your experience when they hit you? I fear so, but I always forget to check.

Best of the Avernum series? in General
Warrior
Member # 6801
Profile #23
Avernum 2 has the best plot, whithout doubt. But I like the huge Avernum 3 world (it's so big!). The major improvment between from A2 to A3 are the items, you now know what they do and the artefact are cool, nice to have a whole party with 6 AP, remind me of my Exile Characters :) .
I have mixed feelings about Avernum 4.

The man's name is Giscard, he lives west of Formello. You find a letter of him on a body in the eastern caves. This enable you to speak to him and get the quest to clean the storeroom behind this locked door (of course he give you the key).

I don't think it was destroyed. The empire stoped sending people down after Hawthorn assassination, so the fort was abandonned. During the empire war (Avernum 2) it was used by refugees from Cotra (which was destroyed, nice to know it's being rebuilt).

What are the skills I can buy? And where? especially if it's at an afordable price. I'am shy about spending my precious skill points if I can get skill increases for cash.

Were is it safe to stockpile you items? I have some trouble to choose for my best armor kit (more protective or less bulky? Armor or specific protection?) so I wish to keep my extra items in case I change my mind.
Is it just safe to pile them anywere?
