Well, if you did the quest then I guess it's fixed since the boss didn't spawn before so completion wasn't possible.

Never saw such items complete before, makes you look like death bringer.

Lune de cendre - L66 Evoker AERA (TWINKED)- Rhodes

@efko The Carnus set offers a big boost to Electrical burning damage and also offers diviner goodies. It's a good epic set. It is not difficult to be completed though (if you agree to some farming sessions). The set i would like to achieve the most is The panoply of Moirae for its look  ;) I am still lacking of 1 piece.

There is no screen of the Telkine III sorry, because when i checked it, Lune was already on elysean path and the telkine screen was black. That said, the telkine encounter wasn't hard: there was no match actually with eruption casted from stairs but Wusao is still dangerous for Lune to redo it.

At mid act III, the auramancer build was no more efficient and Lune hence weared freyja 'set. This set is no more OP. Sure it's a great set but now DA achieved is around 800.   

Act III

Lune tried to offer some resistance to successive blitzkrieg from trash mobs in the Atlantis quest.
Finally she had to resign against trash monsters before the 2nd waypoint, in a slide show not playable at all.

It remains from this build , although Lune has gone away, that Psionic Beam on staves is really a new good skill  ;)

Sad news Tauceti, she was going so well. She will be forever remembered for her valiant efforts in the Fallen Heroes' Graveyard.  Please give me her final details.

Last details: L66, somewhere in Gadir outskirts, died to Aegipan beastmen.
Atlantis adventure should be played as an Act VI and not as a Act III-bis.

I can't even imagine what this could be in legendary but i will take my hat off to anyone who will succeed  ;D

i can't even play Atlantis with any mob modifier.. too laggy.. the whole Atlantis map feels like the ichthian relic quest where you put the quest item and lots of tiny undeads pop up
i are TQ titans
i are many people

I wish my laptop wasn't dead, I miss this game and would like to play it again. Not sure as what class though, I've never actually beaten this challenge, usually I get bored or die. Furthest i ever got was epic Crete with a ranger, probably the most stable class I've played, enjoyable if not a bit over powered. I was playing on the disc version, i.e the original version. Maybe play a warden? Never used defence much, and warden seems great combination. Conqueror would also be fun, though melee is very tough early on from memory. My favourite mage class has to be summoned, though I tried with a summoner and died in act 3, but the class itself was fun and strong from memory. :)

Also, I'm still alive in case anyone missed me.  ;)

Of course we missed you.  :)

Hopefully you'll get a new rig soon and can play it again.

Yeah maybe. I'm not sure how well it would run on windows 10, and even if I got it to work, what class I would choose, or if my old saves would work.

Should be okay if you set it to compatibility for Win 7 SP3 iirc for the disc version anyway.  And there's always the TQAE version and expansions to try out if you want.  Saves should be okay, but may depend on when you last played them.  I moved mine over to Win10 without problems, but I've never stopped playing the game so they've always been pretty much up to date version wise.

I last played the game about 2 years ago, on windows 7. I'm getting by without a laptop though, and it's a big expense for just a few games.
