    @Accipiter It looks like a regular wilderness exit (A ? I think), and we found ours for this foray in the southwestern region of the Darkenwood forest.


    However, I would not be surprised to find out they move each time the foray is run. I can guarantee you it is there somewhere, just have to keep looking.

    @Accipiter It just looks like a regular wilderness exit, one that's not typically there. I've seen it as far as the Dardanics, check the outer perimeter of the Northreach as well.
    Huh. Neat.

    Oh, so it is marked on the map? We thought we had to go through each room an manually check, hopefully have better luck tonight.

    It didn't even give me a warning.  No one had been in that room (since Farrah was still in the pit) just..  DEAD.
  • TorinnTorinn Posts: 181 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Yeah. Do they have tells? It'd be great if they did. If they don't then.. that's silly

    The tell is the countdown timer on INTREPID...

    That wasn't even the "END OF TIMER" kill.  That's the boulder.

    This was just me walking into a room after it somehow triggered it's own "ACTIVATING CRUSH.EXE" with no tell whatsoever until I was already dead.
  • TorinnTorinn Posts: 181 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Yeah that's been my experience too. Random deaths with no warning or way to escape (and not the end of timer death)

    It has nothing to do with the timer (we had plenty of time). There's a warning, which Frederich is aware of, but only if you were in the room to see the warning. He had just walked in, which is why he was lamenting about the bad timing and no warning.
  • TorinnTorinn Posts: 181 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I wonder if there can be something like "you hear a boulder crash to the northeast" or similar

    There is already that for the boulder, if that's what you mean.

    There's an aspect to the barrow that no-one has managed to figure out yet. That's all I'll say on the subject!

    Or maybe that's just what cruel Divine want us to think as we walk into death traps over and over again for their amusement. :(

    Did Russell get locked away? No matter where I went, I couldn't walk to him.

    We will!

    Also; is the boulder talisman a 1-time use or?

    Being thrown from an attack, wherein you don't have balance until you insta-die is kinda bullshit.  NGL.

    EDIT:  https://ada-young.appspot.com/pastebin/9j_3Y8IF

    yeah.  That's just not fair. :(

    I'm 99% sure the aran'kesh foray is bugged.

    I don't want to give parts of it away, but the things do nothing to him!

    Okay 100% sure.

    It followed me to Thera and Mhaldor and was attacking everyone I ran into :(

    This is sorted now. He was somewhat overzealous on following people who flee / run  from him / otherwise leave the area.

    "flee".

    I'm sorry that dying to the insta kill that happened before the foray ended and then embracing death counted as fleeing :(

    Easily avoidable though.

    @Tahquil

    It's literally unavoidable unless you have a boomerang and don't have mass up.

    We get thrown when off-bal from an attack so...

    I'll take a hit and admit being thrown is unavoidable. The 'insta-die' can be completely prevented though by utilising the very unique mechanic present in this particular foray. and a thing called 'communication'.
  • FrederichFrederich Posts: 952 ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    If your partner gets blocked off, because he's still in their room.  They can only move 1 room, and that's with a leap.

    Being thrown whilst off-balance and then dying 1 second later is hillariously unfair, in-and-of-itself.  Especially considering they might be off bal too.

    I'm pretty sure we're just missing something, but yet to figure out what.
  • NazihkNazihk Posts: 487 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Some boss fights you have to have somebody whose job is just to stay on balance and respond to situations. 

    There were a few bosses like that in Imperian, up until we got the ability to just bullrush them.

    Clearly what you need is Jack Sparrow to show you the ropes.
