Need two Crest stones to open door in the crypt. Found one in Western Wastes area. I know the second one is suppose to be in Drayk's Vale. Cannot find the Crescent Shade with the stone. Any suggestions as to where it is? :confused:

It could be that you killed it already and didn't notice. Look around for dropped stones.

Also, there's only about a 1 in 3 chance that it'll be in the zone each time you enter it, so if you don't find it the first time you look, keep coming back.

:( I left the section and returned. Still could not find the stone. Also check in the blood before I left. The second time I came back all the blood disappeared. :confused: Is that suppose to happen? Still no stone.

Blood should generally disappear, items should not.

I think you only need one Crescent Stone to open the crypt. Am I remembering wrong?

The crescent thahds/shades do not always drop a crescent stone (and you'd probably notice if it did). You may have to kill it again to get the stone.

Dikiyoba.

Edit: I checked the Shaper Crypt script. I'm almost positive you only need one crescent stone.

Aye, you only need the one. Try re-entering the Wastes with the square tree area over and over. When the section's open, you can kill the witch and have a chance of gaining a stone, if I remember correctly.

Went in and out of waste areas; also the Drayk's vale; Killed the witch in the Spirit City. The gem did not open the door. There is a part of Spirit city that I can not get through...keep dying. Still have not found a Crest Stone, to unlock the sealed door in Shaper Crypt. :( Wonder if I need to reinstall program, maybe a flaw in download. Have problems where the location square in the map area goes wild...travels all over the place...hard to fight battles when I cannot see the enemy.

You need to do the "secret ritual" to enter the temple in Spirit's City.

Dikiyoba will not reveal the secret here. Dikiyoba suggests Schrodinger's FAQ/Walkthrough.

Edit: Need more details about "location square." When does it happen? How often? What are you doing when it happens?

I figured out how to get into secret area. Thanks for leading me to the walkthrough. :D

Still having problems finding the crest stone. I have gone in and out of Waste lands and Drayk's vale so many times I lost count. Maybe I should go back to Drayk's vale and kill all the Shades. I did this before but did not see any stones. Perhaps I need to keep returning. :confused:

I thought in your original post that you already had one from the Western Wastes?

Dikiyoba apologizes for the confusion.

Had to uninstall game and reinstall and start over. The Crescent Shade never appeared. After re-installing, he showed up. But had to start all over...but my skill points improved. :D ;)

Would this be the one Proof is talking about? Something like "There's this Thahd that runs away from me, always clutching a crescent-shaped stone to its chest." Because I can't find it.

... [time passes] ...

Yep, found em both today. Been too long since I played the original.

In Western Wastes, the Crescent Thahd was standing right at the east entrance, in front of a little patch of trees. Took me several visits to find (3 or 4 runs around the area)

In Drayk's Vale, The Crescent Shade was by the small square-shaped wall in the south-east corner, east of the stonehenge-looking thing. It was wandering eastward, and I ran into it without actually looking for it.

I managed to kill each with a single hit. The Crescent Stone looks EXACTLY like a regular stone. If it were dropped behind something, you'd have a hell of a time finding it.

Don't bother with killing all the "Quiet Shades" in Drayk's Vale. The Crescent Shade is actually named as such, and does not stand in a corner like all the others.

Wow... I'm baffled.

I just picked up a third Stone Crescent. While I was slaying Cryodrayks in Drayk's Vale, the Crescent Shade attacked me east of the zigzaggy rock near the map center.

I'll be damned. Really.

Oh yeah, I wonder if you can sell Stone Crescents. I'd think so, and that they're worth a lot. Time to visit Rhakkus ...

An occasional double post can be lived with, but a triple post is rather ridiculous. Just edit the old post by adding what you want to say in a new paragraph. The time difference between post 2 and 3 probably justifies separation but there is no reason for 1 and 2 to be separate.

I don't think stone crescents are worth anything, probably to keep people from accidentally selling them. And because it's just a pretty rock, after all.

Dikiyoba's favorite cheat code is igotarock. Why? Because it's there.

Edit: Spelling.
