Hi,

Ok - I have cleared the first battlefield - level 8 warrior and my DK is level 8 warrior. When I go to Samuel's Castle the DK's and slaughtering me (they are level 12)! Any suggestions? Should I start over? Just slit my wrists?

Thanks,
David

suggest a search on this forum about this problem
There has been a fairly extensive discussion on how to kill them.

Yep, the search feature is very much underused

But I've never had a chance to answer that question so I'll do so anyway <smile>. I typically get to that point with 2 warriors about the same level.

The keys to making that fight rather easy are IMO:

1. Whatever weapon you are using have it sharpened to the maximum (subject to your agility). This makes a ridiculously big difference. Cash isn't that hard to get - if you must, forget another skill, learn sharpen, use it, then forget it and relearn the other skill.

2. If you have a decent 2H weapon use it and switch your skill as needed. If you are 1H and don't feel like a switch, make SURE that if you have a shield your skill is in 1H + shield and if you don't your skill is in pure 1H. otherwise the skill is wasted. Put skill points mostly in accuracy and critical/deathblow.

3. Fight smartly. Have the character with the better armor class take the attacks (if there is a difference between your two). Remember that you can pause an unlimited number of times and suck down enough potions to drown an elephant. Use the spacebar/potion routine as needed and the fight should be easy. I haven't needed to take a potion to kill a deathknight at your level for a number of games - since I figured out how to optimize (more or less) a warrior but if you need potions take them.




Reality is for those who cannot cope with fantasy. Fortunately, I can cope quite well.

::A dark dungeon::
I cleared the Battlefields first dungeon and all the non dungeon areas all around before I got there to fight DKs. I also had a very big number of portions on me and used a lot the spacebar key. I completed the easy quest with the Doctor in the infirmary to get some more xp and then I went to the first right turn on the drill map. There is a DK there but also there is a room that unlocks the second Battlefield dungeon. I went to clear all the dungeon there. Got some very special weapons for me and my DK. So the Drill area gets more easy to clear up.
