Is this going to be a cursed or uncursed attempt stormyboy?

Cursed. Even tho i will be using only one curse (the bleeding one) , i want to interact with the system and add a bit more difficulty.

In my character list i have one more seer that is around the Athens warcamp, played on xmax, 0 potions,but i have decided not to use it. I kinda want to use the curse from the begining

Stormyboy - Fyredel - L28 Seer AEARE (no potions/untwink/cursed) - Hathor Basin

So, for my update, i have completed normal. After farming 3h for a pair of stonebinder cuffs (while farming i got some green bracers with 20% elemental damage, +3 elemental damage) i realized that, at the moment, a pair of cuffs that can be very well bought from a vendor are a milion times better than +1stats.

Oh, and you will notice that i updated my character with another name. This is the correct name. "Spasm" is a character that i removed from the challenge. I just forgot to edit the name last time when i copy-pasted the template.

Hey! I am back with an update. Psionic beam is crazy strong. With this skill i am melting bosses and big groups with ease. I only had 2 moments when i almost lost the caracter, both of them at the new random spots that spawn heroes and monsters. To be more exact, an agglutination of spiders/tigers almost got me because of their web/lightning stun. With this being said, i really wonder how could a melee character survive those random spots. Maybe by skipping...?

As for the path i chose, i will first do Atlantis and then get back to IT. There is a relic that i rly rly want from Atlantis: Star of the evening. That on a 20% inteligence ring would be amazing.

Oh boy, just started another Prophet and in the Laconia Woods what do I see?  4 heroes waiting for me - and I'm L6.   :o



Edit: Whew managed it. Did get up to L7 just before tackling them which helped a little.  Had to entice them away one by one.  Thought the new challenge would end there when I saw them waiting for me.   :P

Thaaaat is what i was talking about. And wait for the act 3 spawns. And now, imagine being a melee. I will call it challenge impossible even for a conqueror.

Spoiler: Atlantis doesn't have the new random hero spawns.

Well, I'm using the old Xmax (2016 version) so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

You mean, if xmax has something to do with spawning such crowds? If you mean that, such crowds spawn because of the last update. From what i have observed, following the update you can find: crowds of monsters with one or more heroes(without xmax, the groups are made of a hero, a few yellow monsters and some white) , traders spawned random around the world (found one in the Athens battleground and one in the fayum desert), people in distress that just sit around crying, groups of soldiers fighting, treasures (spots with 3-5 chests)

I see.  I haven't played TQ for a while, tested Embers then Farthest Frontier went into alpha testing so been playing that since early December.  So not familiar with all the other stuff that got added with the latest TQ patches.  I've read/seen some of the new random encounters in this playthrough and the monster group obviously.   :)

Rangering is out, died to a bunch of centaurs outside of Ambrossos.  Didn't run when I should have.   :(

Sorry to hear that Medea :(. Multiple times i have lost characters because i thought "Hm, this is easy. I will not run!"

Now, here comes a bitter/sweet update. I have finished Atlantis BUT, i have to remove the no potions tag. At one point during this run i have accidentally hit a potion... I have no idea when and i swear what i have not used it to save me. Anyway, i will try to finish the game without using potions even without the tag present.

Well, that's a nuisance!   ;)

Yeah was totally my fault.  Got a bit surrounded by the centaurs and then noticed the one with the battle standard and couldn't get out or down a health potion fast enough to save him.
