    Victory!  We defeated Zu the Stormcaller.  The party used many scrolls,  5 Bottles of Life, and 4 other resurrect scrolls. Sorcerer repeatedly threw Coreburst II, Cleric used Bastion of Bazul II and Prismatic Healing, Warrior fed mana and life support, while Juggernaut served as a punching bag and occasional attacker.  The reward chests unlock the…[Read more]

    This is just a note to any future players about the cap on levels.  It is 110.  Now, the screens may look a little funny and mislead you.  For example, my Sorcerer, at lv 110, needs 363696 EXP to reach the “next” level.  Well, the screen reads Sorcerer has 363695 EXP, so only needs 1 more EXP to move up.  Next battle,  the battle result text shows…[Read more]

    Yep, I’m ready to give up.  Endless grinding for the random item, which may not even help much, is a waste of time.  No thinking required.

    Hey, @Mastertrek, I think you beat the boss in the Delusion of the West.  I don’t see a way to defeat it without using a pile of life in a bottle or flood of life.  I’m at lev 110, with decent equipment, and I can definitely do some damage (Prismatic Nether, Prismatic Nether II, Grip of Death, Cosmic Bolt III, Torment of Spjon III), but the m…[Read more]

    I recall your posts about how hard it is to get essences.  Well, I spent enough time to raise a level (about 350k EXP) in the cloud catcher dungeon, and got exactly zero essence drops.  In the “wisp” dungeon I got several wisp essences in the same number of battles.  So it appears that the drop rate for the cloud catcher essences is si…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    Say it isn’t so.  I see better equipment can be forged using the scarce “Essence of the Cloud Catcher.”  But is it required to start with raw unforged item all over again, and not just applying the essence to the already forged “wisp” weapon?  Awful.

    But I’d like your advice here, @Mastertrek.  What should I forge?  I looked at the Crys…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    I looted all the treasures in the Tower (Aberration of the East) and then defeated Lyx the Cloud Catcher.  There was one (maybe two) tense moment when only Warrior was alive, but otherwise a constant chipping away at the boss.  The debuffs from the boss were the most trouble.

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    I’m inching along, with just 2 more pieces of equipment to forge for the “wisp” set (both for spell casters).  I do have a question about the towers.  In reading your posts, it appears that Towers provide “higher” essences (than the “wisp essence”).  Are these in chests, or just drops?  If drops, is there any point in trying to loot the che…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    In fact, I still have 4 essences, 14 parchments, but no “raw” material for the spell caster equipment.

    I’m impressed you did so much in the tower…I die just knocking on the door.  I’ll stay in the Wisp area for awhile, but I’m not sure the spell caster equipment drops there, as I’ve probably thrown away 20 thief items, more bracers for my…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    OK. is this some sort of cruel joke?  I can sometimes make it to the next tower, although the mobs in the world outside can destroy me, but I can’t come even close to winning a single battle in the tower.  That seems like a large gap between the last dungeon and this one.  I didn’t find any “hidden areas” along the way to the tower.  What sho…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    In a tense battle, my party defeated the monster in Cave of the Wisp.  Whew.  When Cleric dies, good luck–I didn’t use any of my scarce revival spells, but only the cheap revive with 0 MP.  Warrior saved the day by absorbing the awful punishment dished out by the monster, and as long as Cleric could patch him up, returned ready to absorb even mo…[Read more]

    Question: I’ve been grinding in the Cave of the Wisp to get what I need for Dreamforge equipment.  I have 4 of them for Warrior, 4 Dreamforge equipment items for Juggernaut, but only the Dreamforge weapons for the Cleric and Sorcerer.  I am thinking that the ones I’m missing for the spell casters are not dropped here, but in the next dungeon.  Ar…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    Sorry I took so long to respond.  I’ve been in the hospital the past 3 days and didn’t have access to anything.  Thanks for the help, even for the video, and with the details in a prior post from @Mastertrek, I can move ahead getting the materials for dreamforge equipment.

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    I’m getting nowhere (except being dumped into coffins) battling the Dream of the Wisp.  I’m at level 99, and only Juggernaut has a Dreamforge piece of equipment (armor).  I’m not sure how to proceed, but I’m guessing I need to grind in the dungeon to get more materials for the Forge so I can upgrade equipment.

    I’n not sure I remember how the F…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    I did indeed equip Sorcerer with the Blade.  Yes, Cleric is an easy target, for sure.  I’m going through the  Dream of the Wisp (Cave) now.  My inventory is piling up with items used for forging (I assume) that I doubt I will ever use, but since I don’t usually know what they can become, it is tough to decide to drop anything.  And given the scar…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    Answering part of my question: it appears that the blade can be equipped and unequipped, and that anybody can equip it.  The text is interesting: “After equipping this, the bearer of this blade will be transformed into a dragon when threatened, greatly amplifying their melee damage, spell power, and defenses.  This transformation will only t…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    Another question: is there any reason to re-fight the bosses in Solace?  Are there good rewards?

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 1 week ago

    I defeated Virulen in a rather easy battle, thanks to your tips.  I was as level 98 (Juggernaut at lev 92).  I did not have the good defense level III tome, but I did have a few scrolls that were quite useful.  Only Sorcerer died along the way (3 times!!), but nobody else was ever in danger.

    Question @Mastertrek: if I wish to continue, who sh…[Read more]

  • 1oldtymer replied to the topic Slots Question. in the forum Dragon’s Blade 2 weeks ago

    Ah, that’s encouraging.  I don’t have the III one yet, but I do have the Bastion of  Ancients II for lev 97.  I’m currently at lev 94, so by the time I get to 97 I should have picked up the III.
