In the spider forest, I have come to the ruins wherein there is a cocoon, I have tried the actions outlined in the walkthrough by "Grim" but cannot get the special sword "Flamestinger" without getting killed, fast. Any successful attempts you have tried. Thanks

that cocoon is lethally trapped....

The only thing you can do, is as you click on the cocoon, press spacebar (have plenty decent healing potions available). drink one, and quickly press the spacebar twice (split second unpause), drink another healing potion again, even if you are not close to death, since you dont know how much will go down in the next split second unpause...

repeat this for a few times (most of the trapped things i have opened, took me about 8 - 10 repeats of this "split second" unpause.

Its a littlebit of a waste of potions, but its one way not to die....

You should have no problem getting the sword if you follow these steps (there are several other times in the game where you will use the same procedure):

1. Have you hero standing at the cocoon and your DK standing at any ruin, cave, house, etc entrance (remember that your hero and DK will be some distance apart).

2. Pause the game (and do not unpause it until you are done with the last step)

3. open the cocoon and grab the sword (game is still paused)

4. click on the DK's portrait to make him the leader and enter the ruin, cave, house, etc that he is standing next to (while the game is still paused).

Both characters will now be in the ruin, cave, house, etc - you will have the sword - and you can switch back to your hero as leader and procede with the game. Try the procedure a couple of times, because it can be useful in many different situations.

i used the teleporter stones to do the trick. place one some distance away from the trap & in pause mode, click on the cocoon & pick up the sword then use the secondary skill button to use teleporter stone.
