So now i get to the boss in the dwarven cave and he constanly cast spikes that totally surround me. Tried using invisible potions so he cant get me but when i reappear he casts spikes maybe 5-6 times in a row. To me this is funny because how do they expext you to beat something that impossible? Any way to beat this necromancer, i'm a warrior and pretty much only have warrior skills. No magics at all, So am i totally screwed here?

If you have no magic at all, this can be a hard fight...

Do you have deadly gift? If yes give him some scorpions. 4 to 5 should be enough to leave him absolutely no chance.

other options: Drink a shadow potion and use your special attack not on him but near him. If you do so he will get hit, but you´ll remain invisible... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Other good option is a weapon with frost damage.

Hope that helps. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

This guy was no trouble at all with no magic. Just keep Stunning him! Also keep a few potions handy, just incase.

I´d say this depends very much on your level when you are challenging him <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Regardless of your level, though, once you start whacking him with a pointy piece of metal, his spell casting rate and attack effectiveness drops, especially if you have Stun (or Poison, or Frost on the weapon).

The shadow potion / spin attack trick will make it an easy fight.

Thanks for the tips, wanted to get here sooner but my net connections was down. I took a invisible potion and walked up a ways, there was more cave to be discovered and more dwarfs to kill so i did that. Suddenly he walks up and says I'll deal with you later guy, and then he teleports away. Now i got the stone axe and returned to eolus that guy in the village. So now i went to do the elven dude quest, spoke to him and did the burial grounds quest, completed the rampant dwarves quest too as soon as i entered the room and got smooshed. Did this battle multiple times and finally beat the dwarves and Josiphina although that must've been pure luck as 2 times my health was extremely low, i just used invis potions which helped with all the fast paced fighting. Killed her and her little pet, and collected the elven ceremonial objects. Did that part and now the Elven guy doesen't acknowledge me, I only found 2 artifacts, spoke to him with the 2 cause i read in a faq that 3 was a bug, well the story wont advance even with me having 2 artifcts in my inventory. Now my question is, does that guy i got away from and he teleported away, did he have the third artifact or something? Either that or 1 of my other quests must need to be completed to cpmplete the council of 7 quest. Any help would be appreciated. This is the final guy i need to get to the council got everyone else standing there in a circle. Did the imp one also.

Did you keep exploring the mine to the north? There is a certain letter there the king would be interested in seeing. You could have given the axe to the king, though I don't recall if giving it to the dwarven council member will cause a problem.

The third ceremonial item was the staff Josephine dropped, though it is sometimes in the locked chest at the back of the room. Check around the area she was defeated, and move your mouse around if it was behind the ladder or a wall (the alt key will not show the description in that case).

Thanks for the tips on that i will check the area for the third object, luckily if it doesent show up, i did a second save, only thing is this save was before the big battle so i might need to redo it. Great screenshots, i'm missing the staff piece, i have the book and the other thing.

If you can not find the staff, you might want to download the inventory files to replace it, rather than re-load a save from before the fight (or just defeat her again using a shadow potion and spin attack, which works even when you are blind);

Thanks for the helpful links, I finally found the staff. The bottom part of the screen is where the staff landed, but I was looking for it to already say elven ceremonial item, it was unidentified and was called quarter staff or something. Felt sorta dumb cause i was looking for it for a good 30 minutes and then for some reason wanted to check my inventory and there it was. Oh well, now i have all the council members present and did the blessing ritual. In a deserty part now with a giant orc and a wimpy Orc Shaman that's scared of a Dragon attacking. Again thanks for the helpful suggestions and screenshots.
