Bloodpit/Gauntlet RCM
« on: May 18, 2011, 04:42:08 AM »
Gah, I'm so frustrated by the Blood Pit/Gauntlet >:( !!


Has anyone beaten this thing with RCM going...? If so, how strong were you (and your guys, if you weren't doing it alone)?
Even using the cheat to kill enemies via cntrlF4, it took a long time to win. Since the enemies get armour, and sometimes even helmets... it's very hard to beat them up quickly enough to not be swarmed (especially with the fast respawn rate), mostly because of those awful shieldmen (gah, how I long for the Kick ability x.x").

So, does that mean forsaking heavy armour for the ability to run, or having a really high Athletics skill?


EDIT: Just realized you can't choose your armour. Since my regular armour was black, and the stuff in the arena was, I assumed you kept the body-piece when you went to fight... seems not. Well, guess I'll need a high athletics skill to get anywhere--or I'll have to ride a warg (my character was going to stay infantry, but then again that sucks in M&B).

Been somewhat more successful lately. I needed to cheat a bit, still. With about 7 power strike, Athletics, Iron Skin and high proficiency with a two-handed sword, you can do pretty well in the bandit gauntlet.... but the orc pit is really hard (because of their heavier armour).

The reason it is so hard with companions: Your ****** companions won't do something as simple as "old this position"!! I tell thme to hold, and they're busy running to the other side of the arena where they're picked off one at a time.... If I could get them to a corner to defend themseves, we'd survive more. Glad that this ought to be settled in the new version.
