    The bad luck tale

    For a few weeks now I've been playing a Nekkid Fishymancer. Trying to get him to Hell Baal with out wearing any items.

    Tonight I decided to give NM Ancients a go as I wanted him to end on that for the night and start hunting for Baal during the week with hopes of starting out in Hell over the weekend.

    So off we travelled to find the Ancients. We eventually found the entrance. A pack of Rogues were there guarding it. Finally we summoned them as well for the battle. Armed with 6 Rogues, 8 Skellies, a Might Moron and a gumby what could go wrong.

    Firsty came Talic. Mods looked ok, but then I don't seem to worry about them much anyway. Stand back and let them kill is my motto, run when needed.

    Korlic, posed no threat either and fell just as quick as what Talic did.

    Now the final one Madawc
    As you can see things were going very well. More life taken, closer to his death and a level for Dave and then clicky

    What happened you ask. After Madawc died Dave was walked over to the him where the dialogue screen opened up to tell the story. Upon walking over there Madawc was in the process of letting off all of his CE and you know the rest of the story.

    If there's anything funny about this is that the Ancients were kind enough to grant me a level for killing them as you can see on the "Deeds" screen.
    Now I've been told by Corax that you can stop that by clicking after they die. Cor, now you tell me :D

    Just my ramblings :D

    Hope you're not put off of trying again, Jassy... *hugs*

    And Cor, yes, you should have *known* Jas really needed that info, n00b! ;)

    Sorry to hear of the loss.

    I'm intrested that you say it was Madwacs CE - (Corpse Explosion?) that killed you. I didn't know he did CE?

    Reason for asking is I had a FM die to Madwac in NM when I had killed him and the other two. I had Mawdac right on the edge of the screen because he was FE - I saw him die got the dialogue and then dropped dead. Same as you - three golden statues and a dead Necro.

    I was playing SC and got the quest reward credit so I didn't have to fight them again.

    I'd assumed it was FE bug which got me - maybe not?

    Again sorry about Dave!

    I can feel the pain. I always say - Last time no more HC - every time a game glitch cause my dead on HC. But soon I start thinking on what I did wrong or not to use block this time or... whatever

    Cmon I'm waiting here to your upcoming project! :thumbsup:

    Ow, that sucks! What a bummer...


    Are you saying that the game took control of your character? I can´t remember that has ever happened to me.

    I think at the ancients that's normal. Once the speech starts he walks. You probably don't notice because you have the same habit I do (I suspect). Which is clicking the text away because you read/heard it a dozen times already.

    Thanks Siege my mistake - cold enchanted makes sense corpse explosion doesn't :uhhuh: - playing with clothes I don't normally have to worry about CE as I always try to have decent resits so it didn't pop into my head when I was thinking of a "CE" mod which would instant kill when you had full life - I can see naked its a much nastier mod.

    Damn that's rough. I'm really sorry to hear that. And in such a crappy way too.

    Good luck with try #3!
