Al Aziz - the definite thread
« on: June 21, 2009, 10:55:20 AM »
The following is a spoiler. Read at your own risk, or figure it out for yourself. I decided to open a thread where this could be easily accessible in one place instead of having to search and look for different bits and pieces on the forum.

Have you ever got stuck in the mines by not being able to leave or even see your inventory? That means you're not ready yet, as the merchant will suggest when you talk with him. And if you pick the weapon from him and talk to him a second time then you're just stuck in his screen. The solution, I have found in another user's post on this forum, and I'm merely elaborating it a bit more.

Hello friends,

I'm a little annoyed at the moment because I can't locate brother R. in any taverns lately its just his friend with the elixer never brother R. with the mines location. I've ridden around Pendor atleast 12 times both FORWARDS and BACKWARDS and still no brother R.
I'm sure it all comes down to chance but this is getting old and I was lucky enough to capture three gems while I looped the map for him. Its almost a slap in the face so what could I do?

P.S. apologies if this doesn't belong in this thread i'm just tired of waiting for an answer.

I entered the mines with 1 qualis gem and a unit of wine after figuring out the hermits riddle. However when I talk to the orange robes guy the conversation gets stuck and I can't do anything except alt F4.

Guess I missed the part of the riddle where it said I need to have 2 qualis gems.

... I was just about to report that the Strange Ruby Runesword (2hander version) stats might actually be a mistake from the developement, until I realized that the Strange Emerald Runesword had the same "hitting" power, except for one specific and VERY IMPORTANT detail.

Is the SRR (2h) is the most powerful weapon (stat-wise) of the game?

Not all of the NPCs are on the map at any one time.  Sometimes you will have a wait a few weeks for an NPC to be spawned.

I entered the mines with 1 qualis gem and a unit of wine after figuring out the hermits riddle. However when I talk to the orange robes guy the conversation gets stuck and I can't do anything except alt F4.

This is a known bug.  We're working on a fix for 2.03.  I wish I could tell you something more.. :(

Yup its a bug.  I just entered the mine with 2 gems and the wine and still I get stuck to the dialogue screen :( I only needed my sword and Pendor would be mine. I have 200 Silvermists and 100 Huscarls waiting for me in my castle. Oh well, its about time I retired my character anyway.
 I don't expect 2.03 will be savegame compatible and I hate importing high level characters. Maybe if I reinstall the mod and the game the Al Aziz problem will be fixed.


 My only regret is that I have an awesome looking helm which I have no idea where I got it from and I've never seen it in vendors. If you have any idea where it drops I'd really want to know. I am deeply in love with it. Its called open steel helm and this is what it looks like

P.S. Is that the best looking character in M&B history or what? :mrgreen:

I savescummed the 3 upgraded versions of the 1h sword. The most powerful, in my opinion, was the Ruby version. Its stat are as impressive as the other two but it does piercing damage instead of cutting which makes it great against armored enemies. And in PoP most lightly armored enemies are complete pushovers who you could one or two shot with a normal weapon anyway.

While I can make no promises, so far none of the changes in 2.03 should affect your savegames.  That may change by the time we finish it, of course...

EDIT to keep from double posting:

Piercing?  A: that's really cool.  B: that's probably a bug...

The piercing damage is true of all the Ruby items, so I think it was intentional.  Considering the aggregate cost for a gemmed rune weapon (3 Qualis gems), I don't think it is overpowered.
Go, and prophesy of Pendor!

Makes sense.  I should probably get off my butt and go get my own unique weapons in my game... but I've been having too much fun founding Orders and crushing Sarleon and Ravenstern with them.

I doubt it's a bug. Otherwise Ruby would be extremely underpowered compared to the other two types.

On a related note I just 1-shot one of those demonic warriors with my ruby sword. We both charged past each other at full speed and I caught him in the head doing 453 damage. To be fair they don't wear helmets.

You got an open-topped helmet from the Three Seers army.  Good find.

I actually found the open steel helmet as a drop from renegade knights. Sadly, I am a statwhore and it didn't make the cut. =(

I folowed your recommendations :
1 qualis gem to the book seller to get the location of the mines : OK
go to the mines and talk to the pilgrim like guy to get the riddle : OK
(also spoke to the other guy, maybe this was my mistake)
2 qualis gem (a huge lot of battles...) and 1 wine : OK
Back to the mines (excited I was...) and... stuck with the non pilgrim guy!
I can just ask him what he has for sale and the "click left button to continue" does not seem to work.
Any key stroke, mose clik does not work, except alt+F4!

Why?!?

Maybe I should not have spoken with the merchand on my first trip?

This character is an imported one from my 1.21 game?

Please tell me there is a way to get these weapons!!!
