Ancient, My Enemy Hello again. Thought I'd take a moment of your time to recount the ordeal of my hydra bowsorcs' attempt at the Hell ancients. The 9 attempts went like this( but not in the order given, I grouped them for convenience) Once, Korlic leaped over small building in a single bound, she died. Once, died to Mawdics' axes. Twice, died teleporting thru ancient way. Twice, one ancient spawned cold aura, she turned blue and died. Twice, hydra took down Mawdic and Korlic, Talic FE, so tried to static him, let him get too close and died. Last attempt - used the tried and true 'run, cast hydra, lead ancients thru hydra' tactic and Mawdic and Korlic went down(this takes about 45 min. on average). Again, only Talic FE is left. Switched to 'run shoot run' with her bow. This worked fairly well, she stayed well ahead of Talic to play it safe. Since she had decide NOT to try static again, it was 40 min. until Talics' health bar was over half way down. It was going well. And then, the 'Horror of Horrors' lit the screen.....yes, My_Immortal6.....she was out of arrows... or nearly so. After a couple of more times around the stone circle, she parked Talic in the lower left corner and teleported to the upper right corner to ponder her options. An invetory check revieled 39 arrows left.(I yelled at my screen alot about this time) Checking her spell selection list(fire tree is useless) she finds: 1 point in ice bolt(3 with equipment) and 1 point (3) in ice blast. She opts for ice blast, puts it on right-click and heads off to fetch Talic. She went to a 'run blast blast blast run' tactic and in only 55 min. she had Talics' health bar to nothing. She switched back to 'run shoot run' with her bow and after 3-4 times around the stone circle, Talic fell. It was over, finally over. She entered the WSK, opened a TP to town, collected Wendy and saved the game.
